The Bible is without question the most unique book in the world. The reasons for its uniqueness are multitudinous. However, one reason stands out from all of the others. It is the Bible’s claim to be the divinely inspired Word of God.
- “All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: That the man of God may be perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good works.” (2 Timothy 3:16-17)
- “Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation. For the prophecy came not in old time by the will of man: but holy men of God spake as they were moved by the Holy Ghost.” (2 Peter 1:20-21)
The Bible claims to be the world’s only written revelation of God to mankind. It claims to be a miraculous book, the divinely inspired Word of God, not just another book, comprised of nothing more than the mere words of men.
