The Bible is the Word of God
The Bible itself teaches its divine origin and authority:
"No prophecy of Scripture came about by the prophets'own interpretation."
2 Peter 1:20
All Scripture was written as:
"Men spoke from God as they were carried along by the Holy Spirit."
2 Peter 1:21
"God Spoke . . . through the prophets . . . and by His Son."
"All Scripture is God-breathed."
2 Timothy 3:16
The Word of God, once given and written, is exact in all details down to each letter and stroke of the pen. Matthew5:18
"The Scripture cannot be broken."
"The Word of the Lord stands forever."
1 Peter 1:25
