Introduction. 

Worship belongs only to God as Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. We do not worship the Bible. However, it is God’s word to us. It is his revelation. It is a primary way that we discover his character, learn his will, and become more like Jesus. In this series, we will examine where we got the Scriptures; how truth is revealed to us; how to be changed by the word; and how Scripture gives us stability.

PART TWO: Inspiration: Where We Get Our Scriptures

TEXT:  2 Peter 1:16-21

INTRODUCTION.

Worship belongs only to God as Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. We do not worship the Bible. However, it is God’s word to us. It is his revelation. It is a primary way that we discover his character, learn his will, and become more like Jesus. In this series, we will examine where we got the Scriptures; how truth is revealed to us; how to be changed by the word; and how Scripture gives us stability.

DISCUSSION.

What examples can you give of something that would be important to know where it came from before you accepted it or used it, and why? (take water as one example)

EXAMINATION. 

Vv.16-18 What event of Jesus’ life does Peter recall?

Why was it so important to him, and how is it evidence of Jesus’ return?

V.19 What reasons does Peter give for his readers to pay attention to the word of the prophets?

Vv.20-21 What does these verses tell us about the origin of Scripture?

How did Scripture come to us?

Look at 2 Timothy 3:16-17 and discuss how that compares to this passage.
