GOD

Belief in an age of skepticism

“Every part of Scripture is God-breathed and useful one way or another—showing us truth, exposing our rebellion, correcting our mistakes, training us to live God’s way. Through the Word we are put together and shaped up for the tasks God has for us.”

2 Timothy 3:16-17|The Message

slide7

“Our dear brother Paul … writes the same way in all his letters, speaking in them of these matters. His letters contain some things that are hard to understand, which ignorant and unstable people distort, as they do the other Scriptures, to their own destruction.”

2 Peter 3:15-16 |The Message

slide9

Issues people struggle with about the bible:

  • While the bible may have valuable moral insights, isn’t it really only a collection of myths, fables and once-upon-a-time kind of stories?
slide10

Key Thought:

  • The literary form of the Gospels is too detailed to be legend.
slide11

1 In the fifteenth year of the reign of Tiberius Caesar—when Pontius Pilate was governor of Judea, Herod tetrarch of Galilee, his brother Philip tetrarch of Iturea and Traconitis, and Lysanias tetrarch of Abilene—2 during the high-priesthood of Annas and Caiaphas, the word of God came to John son of Zechariah in the wilderness.

Luke 3:1-2|NIV

slide12

“Because the Jews of Rome caused continuous disturbances at the instigation of Chrestus, Cladiusexpelled them from the city.”

~ Suetonius | Early Roman Historian

slide13

“In general the major result of the many unrelenting scholarly attacks on the historical reliability of the New Testament has been to frustrate the attackers because again and again the Scripture has stood up to the challenges.”

~ Rodney Stark | Baylor University

From “The Rise of Christianity”

slide14

Issues people struggle with about the bible:

  • Isn’t the Bible full of contradictions that undermine it’s authority?
slide16

“Aren’t you burying the lead? Dead guy rises from the tomb?”

~Stephen Colbert

to scholar Bart Ehrman

slide18

“Every part of Scripture is God-breathed and useful one way or another.”

2 Timothy 3:16 |The Message

slide19

Issues people struggle with about the bible:

  • Since we no longer have any of the original manuscripts of the Bible, should we not assume that all kinds of errors or legends may have been written into the copies we have?
slide20

Key Thought:

  • The integrity of any ancient writing is determined by the number of documented manuscripts that we are able to examine for that writing.
slide21

Key Thought:

  • There is simply no document from antiquity in the same category as the Scriptures when it comes to manuscript evidence and support.
slide22

Issues people struggle with about the bible:

  • Doesn’t the bible support regressive practices like violence or slavery or the subordination of women to men or discrimination against homosexuals?
slide23

23 But if there is serious injury, you are to take life for life, 24 eye for eye, tooth for tooth, hand for hand, foot for foot, 25 burn for burn, wound for wound, bruise for bruise.

Exodus 21:23-25 | NIV

slide24

38“You have heard that it was said, ‘Eye for eye, and tooth for tooth… 44 But I tell you, love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you.

Matthew 5:38,44 | NIV

Key Thought:

  • God always starts with people where they are and moves them forward one step at a time.
slide26

“There is neither Jew nor Gentile, neither slave nor free, nor is there male and female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus.”

Galatians 3:28 | NIV
