Is the New Testament part of inspired Scripture ? Paul says: All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: (2 Tim 3:16) Did Paul consider his letters to the churches to be part of Holy Writ already ? Did he not base his teachings, instructions, edifying, and doctrines on what was considered inspired writing which in his time was only the Old Testament ? Again, he says: For whatsoever things were written aforetime were written for our learning, that we through patience and comfort of the scriptures might have hope. Romans 15:4 As for Peter, he says: 2 Peter 1:21 For the prophecy came not in old time by the will of man: but holy men of God spake as they were moved by the Holy Ghost. So, is the entire Bible the inspired, inerrant Word of God ? All 66 books ? If yes, where is the Scriptural proof ? If no, then who taught us that the entire Bible is the inspired Word ? Your thoughts, please.
