A Lie to Reject

“The Bible is not reliable”

A Truth to Embrace

“The Bible is the ultimate

source of truth”

slide4

“The Bible is the ultimate source of truth”

The Biblical argument:

II Timothy 3:16,17 – a road map for life

Deuteronomy 10:13; 11:26-28; – a source of

blessing

Matthew 5;18; 24:35; Luke 16:17- everlasting

II Peter 1:16 – an eyewitness account

slide5

“The Bible is the ultimate source of truth”

The logical arguments:

The Masoretic Scribes

The Dead Sea Scrolls

The New Testament Text

The Eyewitness Argument

The Other Text Argument

The Archaeolgy Argument

slide6

“The Bible is the ultimate source of truth”

The logical arguments: The Masoretic Scribes

(AD 500-900) established detailed and stringent

disciplines for copying a manuscript. Among their

guidelines:

“The space of thread must appear between each

consonant.” “The breadth of nine consonants had to beinserted between each section.” “Nothing could be

copied from memory; it had to be copied letter by letter”

Even one mistake resulted in the copy being discarded.

slide7

“The Bible is the ultimate source of truth”

The logical arguments: The Dead Sea Scrolls

Before 1947 the oldest complete manuscript dated to

AD 900.

When the Dead Sea Scrolls were discovered

and translated and compared, word for word, they

were identical, in more than 95% of the text. The

variation of 5 percent consisted mainly of spelling

variations.

slide8

“The Bible is the ultimate source of truth”

The logical arguments: The New Testament Text

Historians evaluate the textual reliability of ancient

literature according to two standards.

the time interval between the original and earliest

copy. 2) how many manuscript copies are available.

The following table compares several historical records with the Bible, using these two standards.

slide10

Textual Reliability of Scriptures

Nearly 25,000 manuscripts or

fragments of manuscripts of the New

Testament repose in the libraries and

universities of the world.

The earliest of these is a fragment of

John’s Gospel currently located in

Manchester, England and has been

Dated within 50 years of the original!

slide11

“The Bible is the ultimate source of truth”

The logical arguments: The Eyewitness Argument

Some highly regarded historians reported events that

took place many years before they were born and in

countries they never visited.

The weight of scholarship confirms that the accounts of Jesus’ life, the history of the early church, and the

letters of the New Testament were all written by men

who were either eyewitnesses or contemporaries of

eyewitnesses.

slide12

“The Bible is the ultimate source of truth”

The logical arguments: The Other Text Argument

A routine criterion in examining the reliability of a

historical document is whether other historical material confirms or denies the internal testimony of the

document itself.

In all of history, the Bible is by far the most widely

referenced and quoted book.

Eusubius – Ecclesiastical History

Irenaeus – Against Heresies

Clement of Rome; Ignatius, Polycarp and Titian

slide13

“The Bible is the ultimate source of truth”

The logical arguments: The Archaeolgy Argument

Over and over again throughout the centuries, the

reliability of the Bible has been regularly and consistently supported by archeology.

Ancient Corinth Arch of Titus Ebla Tablets

Babylonian Chronicles Balaam Inscription

The external evidence for the Bible is an extremely rare phenomenon, making it unique to religious writings.

slide14

“Life Change”

If we truly believe the Bible is the ultimate source of truth and the inerrant word of God…..

We will choose to live under the protection and

provision of God.

The relevance of God’s Word provides:

Our standard for living

The means/guidelines by which we live in a godlymanner.

slide15

“Life Change”

If we truly believe the Bible is the ultimate source of truth and the inerrant word of God…..

Choosing God’s way, as it is outlined in the Bible, does

not “sap” all of the fun and excitement out of life; on

the contrary, it accomplishes our good, because we

were created to reflect His likeness and image.

slide16

“Life Change”

If we truly believe the Bible is the ultimate source of truth and the inerrant word of God…..

Being obedient to God’s Word does not mean giving up the pleasures of leisure, satisfaction or liberty.

It means being free to enjoy maximum leisure,

maximum satisfaction and maximum liberty – in the

way God intended.
