The Bible is the most powerful book that has ever been written.
It is a collection of books, written in three languages and covering more than 1,500 years. Although it was written by human beings over many years, God inspired it and speaks through it today.
“Above all, you must understand that no prophecy of Scripture came about by the prophet’s own interpretation. For prophecy never had its origin in the will of man, but men spoke from God as they were carried along by the Holy Spirit.” 2 Peter 1:20-21
“All Scripture is God‑breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, so that the man of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work.” 2 Timothy 3:16
It’s been said that, “Studying the Bible not only illuminates our minds; it warms our hearts, feeds our souls and changes our lives.” (Nicky Gumbel)
Getting to know God is the purpose for which we were made. God has given us the extraordinary privilege of knowing him, through his Word, the Bible.
God reveals himself to us through his Word. As we engage with it often we learn and understand more about his nature and what it means to become more and more like his son, Jesus.
“In the past God spoke to our forefathers through the prophets at many times and in various ways, but in these last days he has spoken to us by his Son, whom he appointed heir of all things, and through whom he made the universe. The Son is the radiance of God’s glory and the exact representation of his being, sustaining all things by his powerful word.” Hebrews 1:1-3
