BTBD: Week 6 – The Authority, Inspiration, and Historicity of Scripture

In Biblical Doctrine by Jessica Pickowicz0 Comments

Blogging Through Biblical Doctrine
Have you wanted to read a theology book, but haven’t known where to begin? In this series, Jess is blogging through John MacArthur and Richard Mayhue’s book, Biblical Doctrine. Print the study guides at the bottom of each post (or on the Resources page) and follow along!  Also, be sure to join the associated women’s Facebook page to discuss the study with other Christian women.  Finally, if you want to go back and start at the beginning you may find the Introduction article here.

This week you’ll see how Jesus Christ affirmed the authority, inspiration, and historicity of the Old Testament. You will also see how Jesus pre-authenticated the New Testament, and how the New Testament writers affirmed Christ’s view.

This week’s study may feel like just a filler before we get to the good stuff. (Next week we study the doctrine of authority.) But don’t be fooled. There is good and important information in here. This is a section where your “sticktoitiveness” will pay off. So stick to it! You ladies are doing great!

If you haven’t had a chance to look over the accompanying resources for last week, on the topic of divine inspiration, I encourage you to do so this week.

Here is your study guide for this week Bibliology 3.

I’ll see you next week for our discussion on the doctrine of authority.


For your convenience, you may download this or previous study guides from the Beautiful Thing Resources page at any time.
