The trinity is perhaps one of the more complicated, and possibly confusing, doctrines found in Scripture concerning Deity (the Godhead). It is a doctrine that is fully embraced by some who claim to be Christians, while others deny it whole heartedly. Islam, which claims to worship Yahweh (they do not), vehemently denies the idea of the trinity; they claim that to believe such is to embrace polytheism (the belief in multiple gods). With much confusion in the religious world regarding this matter, it is important to look to the Bible, which is the source of truth (John 17:17), to find what the truth is regarding the trinity. Further complicating the matter is the fact that the word “trinity” is not found in the Bible whatsoever, however, that
What is the meaning of Biblical inspiration? The word inspiration firstly appeared in usage in second Timothy 3:16, where we can read: “All Scripture is inspired by God and is useful to teach us what is true and to make us realize what is wrong in our lives. It corrects us when we are wrong and teaches us to do what is right" (Holy Bible, 2013). Following the word's syntax, assumption is that "inspired" is translated to mean every scripture is inspired and useful. Some translations give samples that could be explained as “ex-spired” or "breathed out", therefore, the expression “God-Breathed.” Looking through the Biblical sense of inspiration the firstly comes the idea that writers created exactly the things need to be written for God.
By [the term] “divine inspiration” of the Bible we mean that the Holy Spirit breathed into or guided God’s chosen servants who then made known the truth they received” (The Doctrine We Adorn 6). This is how the Bible was constructed God inspiring and man writing it out. The scriptures of the Old and New testaments complement each other throughout the Bible. The teachings are never inconsistent from the beginning of the Bible to the end, God is constantly showing His true character which is that of a loving and redemptive Creator of all. The book Gleanings From Scriptures says, “The divine law is set before us… if all men are sinners it is important that they be made aware of that fact- by setting before them a perfect standard that they may see how far short they come of it” (Pink 339).
The doctrine of Plenary Inspiration is a doctrine that says that all of a canon is inspired by the Holy Spirit not just certain parts like the Protestants believe. The church agrees with this doctrine saying that entire canons should be considered inspired by God and not just ones that are picked by the Protestants. Hodge makes a great argument for the Protestants throughout this essay as he describes the importance and the origins of the scriptures. He backs up his argeuement by talking about how the Holy Spirit inspired the scriptures and communicates through the Apostles.
I believe in one God, the Father Almighty. Many Christians have grown up reciting something along the lines of the Nicene Creed. What seems to be a simple oath of the Christian believer has a deeper relationship with what each word really means, for it declares that God is the divine nature. Although the Council of Constantinople adopted the Nicene Creed along time ago, it will be looked at by how it applies to the present day believer in God. The creed supports how God, Jesus and the Holy Spirit are homoousios.
The key is that the New Testament writers believed that Jesus was the Messiah, and so these predictions of the Hebrew Bible, according to the New Testament writers, correspond to Jesus’ life. Typology is the relationship between an event in the Hebrew Bible and another event in the Christian New Testament. The New Testament writer of John, for instance, believed the near-sacrifice of Isaac in Genesis was to foreshadow the sacrifice of Jesus on the cross. WORKS CITED NIV Study Bible. 3rd ed.
Each plays a role in how revelation is outlined in the biblical sense. The foundation of Doctrine, Theology and how it is received through humankind reflects revelation and can be shown through 2 Timothy 3:16 2, All scripture is inspired by God and is useful for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness (NRSV).
Old Testament Final how the Old Testament and New Testament are related. All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: One of the ways we know that the Old Testament and the New Testament are related is the both contain the infallible written word of God. (2 Timothy 3:16) (Myers) The affiliation between the Old Testament and the New Testament echoes both the endurance and incoherence amongst the Christian and Israelite. Gods’ have confidence in His unique strategy designed for salvation. It was made known first to the Israelites, and then to all peoples through Jesus Christ.
Holy Scripture, can be referred to as many fixations. It teaches us the way of the Lord, the way of the light and all of the promises of the Lord. It teaches us truth, strength and it open our eyes. I believe that the Scripture is a part of our relationship with God. If we don’t understand his Word then we do not understand him.
The Apostle Paul wrote of the Word's central role in a letter to his young coworker in 2 Timothy (3:15-17) “… and how from infancy you have known the Holy Scriptures, which are able to make you wise for salvation through faith in Christ Jesus. All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting, and training in righteousness, so that the man of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work." THE OLD AND NEW TESTAMENTS It is important to value that Christ is the theme of both the Old and New Testaments for it is only through Him that we can have both eternal life and life abundantly (John 10:10). The Old and New Testaments contain four divisions. The Old Testament’s Integration Paper 3 divisions are 1.)
