Authority, the Spirit, and the Word

| 0

God has spoken through the Spirit to our fathers in the prophets and now in Christ (Hebrews 1:1-3). There’s a lot of profound truth in there which is all too easy to elide; we do well to unpack the authority present in the Spirit and the Word of God.

Speak Where the Bible Speaks; Be Silent Where the Bible Is Silent

| 0

Speak where the Bible speaks; be silent where the Bible is silent. We can understand how this slogan came about on account of the various competing sources of authority in “Christendom.” Yet the premise is only as good as it is truly followed, for it proves far too easy to be silent where the Bible speaks, and speak where the Bible is silent.

| 0

In a world of religious confusion the call went out to use “Bible names for Bible doctrines.” The statement sounds appealing; the concerns it critiques are most valid. And yet “Bible names” could become just as problematic depending how they are used. We do well to explore how language is to be used to communicate the purposes of God.

The Bible can be understood; God has communicated His purposes so that people can come to a knowledge of the truth and be saved (1 Timothy 2:4).

Interpreting the Bible: Basic Hermeneutics

| 0

God has communicated His will and purposes through the prophets and Apostles; they recorded those messages in the Old and New Testaments (2 Timothy 3:16-17, Hebrews 1:1). God communicated His purposes to be understood: good guidelines exist which help us properly make sense of what God has said. We do well to explore these guidelines for interpretation, known as basic hermeneutics.
