The Bible is God's inspired message to mankind. It is a revelation of God's purpose for the earth and mankind, set down by chosen men who were guided in their work by God's Spirit. It is therefore an infallible and authoritative expression of His intent.
Peter an Apostle of Jesus affirms this when he wrote to early believers the following words:
“Knowing this first, that no prophecy of Scripture is of any private interpretation, for prophecy never came by the will of man, but holy men of God spoke as they were moved by the Holy Spirit” (2 Peter 1:20, 21).
Likewise Paul was moved to assure a young believer Timothy with these words:
“But you must continue in the things which you have learned and been assured of, knowing from whom you have learned them, and that from childhood you have known the Holy Scriptures, which are able to make you wise for salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus. All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, thoroughly equipped for every good work” (2 Timothy 3:14-17).
