  • The Authority of Scripture Media Resource by

    2 Peter 1:19

    Our view of the Bible can influence every other aspect of our lives. When we view Scripture as irrelevant or as one voice among many, its influence over our lives will be limited. On the other hand, when we recognize God’s Word as our final authority, it constantly reforms us. In this lecture, Dr. Reeves will examine the different views of scriptural authority that emerged during the Reformation and will discuss how this issue continues to separate Roman Catholics and Protestants.

  • Truth Media Resource by

    During the sixteenth century, the Protestant Reformers appealed to Scripture alone (sola Scriptura). They recognized that all Scripture is God-breathed. It is the Word of the living God. Scripture is therefore infallible and inerrant and our only rule of faith and practice. In this lecture, Carl Trueman explains how the Word of God is truth and as such, our standard. View Resource

  • Scripture Alone Media Resource by

    Christians ought to submit to the authority given them by Christ. But what happens when those in authority teach things contrary to the Word of God? Is there a higher court to which we can appeal? The answer is yes. The appeal was made in the sixteenth century and the motion still carries. Reformers call this Sola Scriptura. That’s the Latin slogan for Scripture alone. Dr. Sproul teaches us about this in the message entitled “Scripture Alone.” View Resource

  • Scripture Alone (Part 2) Media Resource by

    As Christians, we have the right to read the Bible, and to interpret it. Does that mean there are as many interpretations of the Bible as there are people who read the Bible? The real question in all this is how many valid interpretations does the Bible have? In this second part of the message “Scripture Alone,” Dr. Sproul explains what authority Scripture has in the life of the church, and how we are to understand the teaching of private interpretation taught by the Reformers.
