What are we actually claiming when we say the Bible is inspired? In today’s Bible study, Wes McAdams visits with Steven Cuffle and Dr. Jared Saltz about some of the major theories and views about biblical inspiration:
- How should we define inspiration?
- What are some of the major differences between different theories of inspiration?
- What are the pros and cons of each theory?
- Can we have fellowship with one another if we have slightly different ideas about the inspiration of Scripture?
Followers of Jesus should have a profound appreciation for the nature of Scripture. We should recognize both the human and divine aspects of the Bible. And we should allow it to do what it was designed to do, draw us closer to the Lord and to one another. We hope this conversation helps encourage you on that journey.
Steven Cuffle is an evangelist with the Brentwood church of Christ. Dr. Jared Saltz is a professor at Florida College.
