Bottom Line: A credible author writes a trustworthy book.


2 Timothy 3:16 NLT
16 All Scripture is inspired by God and is useful to teach us what is true and to make us realize what is wrong in our lives. It corrects us when we are wrong and teaches us to do what is right.

God is the author. Various people are the co-authors.

The internal test: Do the authors claim it is true?

2 Peter 1:16 NLT
16 For we were not making up clever stories when we told you about the powerful coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. We saw his majestic splendor with our own eyes...

The external test: What does the outside evidence say?

The Bibliographic test: Is the copy I have now reliable and what was originally written?

The pudding test: Is the proof in the pudding?

James 1:22 NLT
22 But don’t just listen to God’s word. You must do what it says. Otherwise, you are only fooling yourselves.

Luke 11:28 NLT
28 Jesus replied, “But even more blessed are all who hear the word of God and put it into practice.”

Hebrews 4:12 NLT
12 For the word of God is alive and powerful. It is sharper than the sharpest two-edged sword, cutting between soul and spirit, between joint and marrow. It exposes our innermost thoughts and desires.
