Episode 1.4: The Authority of Scripture

maxresdefaultWhat authority does the Bible have? Why should its authority be received? Does it authority depend on men or the church? In this week’s episode of The Jerusalem Chamber we will answer these questions with helpful pastoral applications. Tune in as Nathan, Joel, Kyle, and Shawn (…where’s Shawn?) discuss the fourth paragraph of the Westminster Confession of Faith:

The authority of the Holy Scripture, for which it ought to be believed, and obeyed, depends not upon the testimony of any man, or Church; but wholly upon God (who is truth itself) the author thereof: and therefore it is to be received, because it is the Word of God.
