216A Reasons to Believe That the Bible Is the Word of God
The most significant challenge to our faith is the question of whether or not the Bible is the Word of God or the words of men. Without the confidence that the Bible is authored by God, the entire foundation of our faith withers. This course will examine the reasons to believe that the Bible is essentially a gift from God. It will examine the Bible’s internal consistency to show that it required one Intelligent Designer to coordinate all of its integrated elements. It will also examine its wisdom, miracles (especially the resurrection), how it came to be canonized, enemy testimony, and fulfilled prophecy. I trust that this course will provide a shield of protection against the doubts and the necessary equipment and reassurances to take the Gospel out into this skeptical world.
