The Authority of Scripture, Part 1: The Doctrine of Inspiration

0:00

A Broadcast with Stephen Nichols

Higher criticism, the branch of literary investigation that seeks to discover the world behind the text, rose to prominence in seventeenth-century Germany. Yet, the motivation for the implementation of this form of study, the denial of biblical inspiration and inerrancy, has a much longer history. Human beings have tried to deny the inspiration of God’s Word for ages because they cannot abide God’s authority over them. As today’s lesson demonstrates, the origin of Scripture in God necessitates its authority over all creation, and only two responses may follow: Spirit-inspired acceptance or denial.
