Introduction to Bibliology Introduction Of all the doctrines of the Bible, none is more important or foundational than bibliology, the doctrine of the Bible. The reason for this is simple. Our understanding of God, of man, and of the salvation He offers mankind in Christ is all very much dependent on how much men believe and know the Bible. God has revealed Himself in a number of ways: in creation, in history, in miracles, visions given directly to the prophets.

But what we learn about the person and work of Jesus Christ, we learn from the Bible in both the Old and New Testaments. The majority of that which we can know about God comes from the Bible.

If men do not hold the Bible in high esteem as the inspired and inerrant Word of God and fail to handle it properly interpretation and application , then they will turn to other sources as their authority human reason alone, science, tradition, the church, mysticism, experiences for what they believe and practice. The Barthian another name for neoorthodoxy says that his authority is Christ and not the Bible, for that is a fallible book.

But since it is a book full of errors and if it is our only source of information about Christ , then how do we know that Christ has any authority unless we arbitrarily assign Him authority on the basis of our faith or of our reasoning? If our view of the Bible is inadequate we will naturally handle the Bible accordingly. If I think it might contain errors, or that only some of it is inspired, say the thoughts, not the words, then I am left with a dilemma and I must approach it much like a cafeteria line, choosing according to my own likes or bias.

What do I believe and not believe? If it is wrong in some places, then how can I be sure what it says about Jesus is true? An unfortunate element very obvious today within the evangelical community is that most who call themselves evangelicals will theoretically, at least, claim allegiance to the Bible as the all-sufficient and authoritative rule of faith, but in practice, many are raising other sources on a level with or even above the Scripture as their authority for what they believe and practice.

We believe that the Word contained in these books [of Scripture] has proceeded from God, and receives its authority from Him alone, and not from men. And inasmuch as it is the rule of all truth, containing all that is necessary for the service of God and for salvation, it is not lawful for men, nor even for angels, to add to it, to take away from it, to change it.

Whence it follows that no authority, whether of antiquity, or custom, or numbers, or human wisdom, or judgments, or proclamations or edicts or decrees, or councils, or visions, or miracles, should be opposed to these Holy Scriptures, but on the contrary, all things should be examined, regulated, and reformed according to them. Italics added 2 But, as Armstrong points out in the introduction to The Coming Evangelical Crisis, new authorities are threatening the church today.

Bibliology Explained : An Introduction To The Ins And Outs Of The Bible

When I found out it was one of the first classes I had to take during my freshman semester at Ethnos Bible Institute, I was less than thrilled. How about something more exciting, like Romans or Galatians? Studying bibliology conjured up images of dry dusty bookshelves and old scholars spending hours pouring over the details of decrepit scrolls. Great fun. What Is Bibliology? But, more on that topic in a later post. So when we study Bibliology we are studying the book — the Bible — how it came to be, and what it says about itself.

1. Introduction to Bibliology

How does Jehovah regard His Word? Neo-orthodoxy - This system of thinking puts Christ above the written word and says the Bible only becomes authoritative when it speaks to the individual. Romanism - This is the Catholic position. Since the Bible is the product of the church, only the church can be the final authority concerning what the Scriptures say. Tradition is also a source of revelation. What does Galatians ; and 2 Thessalonians ; say about traditions?
