Sufficiency of the Word

From Series: The Pastor's Study, Volume 1

2 Timothy 3:14-4:5  (ID: 2052)

Paul wrote his final letter to Timothy at a time when the Church was suffering from intense persecution and confusion about belief and behavior. In it, he reminds the young pastor of the clarity, authority, and sufficiency of the Scriptures. In a culture that often mistakes conviction for intolerance, Alistair Begg exhorts Christians to hold tightly to the sufficiency of God’s Word for salvation, transformation, and proclamation. The Bible’s authority and Christ’s finished work, not man’s approval, are what give clarity and meaning to the Christian’s life and testimony.


14But as for you, continue in what you have learned and have firmly believed, knowing from whom1 you learned it
