Running To Win

Dr. Erwin W. Lutzer

The Canon of the Bible, Part 3 of 3

October 1, 2012
To many people, the Bible is nothing more than something you put your hand on to be sworn into office. Beyond that, it’s just Jewish myths and moral teaching. However, the sixty-six books that make up our Bible contain powerful, life-changing truths, thanks to the God who made sure we’re reading what He intended us to read.

If you trust your eternal destiny to the writings in an ancient book, it’s reasonable to ask if that book is trustworthy. In the case of the Bible, the answer is “yes,” especially in terms of which writings made it into the book — a set of documents we call the Canon of Scripture.

If the Bible was written by some 40 authors over a period of 1,600 years, the book we hold today had to have a serious editor. Where did the Bible come from? Who picked what writings got in, and which were rejected? The bottom line is that God superintended the Bible’s contents.

Our minds can’t grasp the immensity of the universe, let alone explain where it came from. Creation displays the glory of God. And the Bible’s simple, profound account of creation stands unchallenged as the only rational explanation for it all. Today we’ll continue our discussion on why creation validates the truth of the Bible.

Despite the evidence, most scientists reject a Divine Hand in creation because that Divine Hand would hold them morally accountable. As one scientist said, “We can’t let God get a foot in the door.” Well, His foot is not only in the door, He created the door. Today we will see why creation shouts the truth of the Bible.

Thanks to the space program, astronomers know a great deal about what is “out there.” But they can’t tell us how it all got there. The tough thing for scientists is facing the question of Ultimate Cause. Only by revelation can we touch the infinite and learn the answer. Today the Bible sheds light on how it all came to be.

Would Jesus knowingly tell a lie? Even the most liberal theologian or scholar would have trouble saying “yes” to that question. So when Jesus repeatedly affirms the accuracy of the Old Testament Scriptures, we either believe Him, or reject what He says and the Bible He quotes.
September 21, 2012
Time and again, Jesus referred to Old Testament events as historical facts. If you believe Him, you must believe the Old Testament. Many who doubt the Scriptures need to deal with the Christ who had no doubts about them. Let’s talk more about the Christ who believed what the Scriptures said.
September 20, 2012
Although modern scholars try to demean Jesus, few say He was a bad man. Most look to Him as at least a good moral teacher. And so to scholars we say that Christ’s opinion of the Bible should be at least worth considering. Today we’ll study how Jesus treated the Scriptures, and how we should too.
September 19, 2012
Major newsmagazines report that Jesus only said 18% of what the Bible says He said. Their conclusion: no miracles, just a man. But the Christ of the Bible is a far-different figure. He changes hearts and lives — as millions can attest. In today’s message we’ll learn why the Bible’s picture of Christ validates its truth and authority.
September 18, 2012
Most so-called prophets bathe their predictions in mystery and allegory. Few give the names of specific places and people as the Bible does. Nostradamus never predicted the death of a great city the way the Bible tells of ancient Tyre’s judgment. Today we’ll study why fulfilled prophecy means you can trust that the Bible is true — down to the smallest detail.
