INSPIRATION OF THE BIBLE


INSPIRATION OF THE BIBLE
   both CHRISTIANS and JEWS believe that the HEBREW BIBLE was written under the influence of the SPIRIT OF GOD and possess AUTHORITY for faith and practice. This concept was extended to the writings of the NEW TESTAMENT by Christians. BIBLICAL CRITICISM practically destroyed belief in verbal inspiration and put an unbearable intellectual strain on belief in plenary (full but not word-by-word) inspiration. Nevertheless, verbal and plenary inspiration is maintained by FUNDAMENTALIST and most EVANGELICAL Christians today.
