I continue to take these questions in many shapes and sizes. “How did we come to the Bible today?”, “How do we know that the Christian Bible is really the Word of God?” There are great answers to all these questions. To help you understand this, I need to explain a few terms and ideas, so do not hesitate. I hope all this is very practical and useful for you. At the end of the article, you say, “Well, now I have good control over how we get the Bible!” are you ready? Okay, let’s get to this!
The Bible is a book of books. Sixty-six of them, to be exact! Thirty-nine books are Old Testament and twenty-seven books are New Testament. Sixty-six books written by more than 40 different authors over 1500 years! It contains more than 300 prophecies about Christ (Jesus fulfilled them all, which is a statistical miracle!). No other “holy book” has the capacity to make such a claim. that’s great! In every book you can clearly see God’s grace and plan of redemption! Many scholars call this the “red thread” – it is associated with the blood of Jesus. In every book you can see God’s plan to send Jesus as our Savior! But this is another article …
The word “revelation” means “revelation” or “revelation”. The reason we do not know anything about God is not because we “found” Him somewhere, but because He … deliberately … attacked and glorified us … because He “found” Himself. One way he did this was to “inspire” people to write messages from him. The word “inspiration” means “inspired of God” … so Paul says, “… all scripture is given by God …”
The word “covenant” means “covenant” … “covenant” is the basic premise for connecting. The best way to explain this is to show the difference between a contract and a contract.
Offering a contract relationship … … does not apply to offering services / products and accepting a reward / payment for them one year bible plan. When two parties sign an agreement, each party takes care of itself, i.e.. If you want to paint my house, we can sign a contract. The contract clearly states that you will be paid an “X” amount upon completion of your work. You will also be told that you will have to pay an “X” amount when the job is completed satisfactorily. Do you see how it works? Contracts are available to ensure that people are not robbed … In the example above – the contract guarantees that you will be paid for your work … and that I will get a job that is satisfactory to my salary. There is no need for a relationship with love or agreement …
Pledges are different. If the contracts are “self-arranged” (I want to make sure I’m getting what I want from this …), then the conveners are “self-directed” (I want to make sure you’re getting what you want / need …) Go back to the picture of how to paint my house. If we have to mark it in advance – that – your part says, “I want to paint Brad’s house to bless him.” . My side will say, “I have to pay you to pray.” This is an alliance. It requires a certain amount of love, faith and devotion from each side. You have to trust yourself to do a good job … you have to trust me to pay you when you’ve done.
The final example of NAZD … Cross.
Before Jesus was clothed, lived among us, and died on the cross for us … He did not send a study group: “Well … how long will you accept me as your Savior? I need to know before I go through this torture … I need to make sure I know what I want out of this deal. “No … Jesus did not do that, did he? He just came .. He sacrificed his life for us and said, ‘Now those who want to come and receive’.
By the way, God invites us to communicate with one another!
John 13: 34-35 (NLT) “Now I give you a new commandment, that you love one another; mutual love, showing the world that you are my disciples.”
So when we talk about the Old Testament – we’re talking about a bunch of verses that reveal the “Old Testament” … God is an old commandment about the relationship with people through Israel.
