Paul encourages Timothy in 2 Timothy 3:14 to continue in what he has learned and been taught.  He gives a number of reasons why Timothy's should rely on the Bible to be his guide and source of truth.  The Bible is God-breathed (inspired) and is useful to correct and teach us with the goal of making us more like Jesus.  Paul places the Bible in a place of unique prominence as able to make us competent (Bear-Grylls level useful) for everything God has for us.

On Tuesday, I want us to dig further into the two ideas of Scripture being inspired and sufficient to meet our needs.

  1. Are the words of the Bible the words of men (& women)? Or are they the words of God?  Hint, if you need it.
  2. What is another passage of Scripture that sheds light on the topic of the inspiration of Scripture? (feel free to Google; there are some helpful articles out there)  Why is the doctrine of inspiration important?
  3. What is a passage of Scripture that speaks to the sufficiency of the Bible?  How do we relate the idea of the sufficiency of Scripture to how we interact with other biblical resources?  Other secular resources?
