All Scripture is God Breathed ~ 2 Timothy 3:16

Two things make the Bible absolutely unique. First, it is “living and Active”. We dont just read the Bible. The Bible reads us. The Spirit who inspired the ancient writers as they wrote is the same Spirit who inspires modern-day readers as they read. The Holy Spirit is on both sides of the equation. The apostle Paul described Scripture as “God-breathed”. when we read Scripture, we’re inhaling what the Holy Spirit exhaled thousands of years ago. We’re hearing the whisper of God in breath tones.

Second, we never get to the bottom of the Bible. According to rabbinic tradition, every word of Scripture has seventy faces and six hundred thousand meanings. In other words, it’s kaleidoscopic. No matter how many times we read the Bible, it never gets old, because it’s timeless and timely.

The Bible was composed by more than twenty writers over fifteen centuries in three languages on three continents. Those authors range from farmers and fishermen and kings to poets, prophets, and prisoners of war. It covers nearly every subject matter under the sun; law and history, poetry and prophecy, cosmology and theology. Yet despite facts that it touches on hundreds of controversial topics, it doesn’t contradict itself. In fact, it reads like one book from start to finish. And that’s because there is one Author, the Spirit of God.

“A Bible that is falling apart usually belongs to someone who isn’t”
