Boice: the unique authority

Wednesday, March 14, 2018
    [Jesus:] “Do not think that I have come to abolish the Law or the Prophets; I have not come to abolish them but to fulfill them. I tell you the truth, until heaven and earth disappear, not the smallest letter, not the least stroke of a pen, will by any means disappear from the Law until everything is accomplished.”
    —Matthew 5;17-18 (NIV)
    We are to believe and follow Christ in all things, including his words about Scripture. And this means that Scripture is to be for us what it was to him: the unique, authoritative, and inerrant Word of God, and not merely a human testimony to Christ, however carefully guided and preserved by God. If the Bible is less than this to us, we are not fully Christ’s disciples.
    ... James Montgomery Boice (1938-2000), “The Preacher & God’s Word”, in Foundation of Biblical Authority, Grand Rapids: Zondervan, 1978, p. 142-143, fn. (see the book)
    See also Matt. 5:17-18; 7:12; 22:37-40; Mark 7:12-13; Luke 4:4; 16:29-31
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, grant me faith to believe Your word.
