Lesson #2: Where’s the Bible From?

Part of the Series: Learn Jesus & the Bible (For Kids…of all ages) (see fmi360 video)

The Bible is God’s Word

  • Matthew 4:4: “Jesus answered, ‘It is written, “Man shall not live on bread alone, but on every word that comes from the mouth of God.”‘”
  • Hebrews 3:7: “The Holy Spirit says, ‘Today, if you hear his voice, do not harden your hearts…'”

The Bible is People’s Words

  • Hebrews 4:7: “[God] spoke through David, as in the passage already quoted: ‘Today, if you hear his voice, do not harden your hearts.'”

This Can Look Like

Moses (First 5 Books of Bible)

  • “God gave to Moses, when he had finished speaking with him on Mount Sinai, the two tablets of the testimony, tablets of stone, written with the finger of God.” (Exodus 31:18)
  • “Then Moses wrote this law…” (Deut. 31:9)

The Rest of the Old Testament

  • “This word came to Jeremiah from the LORD: ‘Take a scroll and write on it all the words that I have spoken to you…” (Jer. 36:2)

The first 5 books of the New Testament

  • “Those who from the beginning [of Jesus’ ministry] were eyewitnesses…have delivered them to us, it seemed good to me also, having followed all things closely for some time past, to write an orderly account for you, most excellent Theophilus…” (Luke 1:2-4)
  • “In the first book, O Theophilus, I have dealth with all that Jesus began to do and teach, until the day when he was taken up…” (Acts 1:1-2)

The Rest of the New Testament

  • “I, John, your brother…was on the island called Patmos…I heard behind me a loud voice like a trumpet saying, ‘Write what you see in a book…'” (Rev. 1:9-11)

End of the Bible

I warn everyone who hears the words of the prophecy of this book: if anyone adds to them, God will add to him the plagues described in this book, and if anyone takes away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God will take away his share in the tree of life and in the holy city, which are described in this book.

Rev. 22:18-29
