Why Bother With The Bible?, Part One

From Series: Why Bother with the Bible?

2 Timothy 3:14-17  (ID: 2349)

It’s the best-selling book of all time: Written over thousands of years by dozens of different writers, the Bible is a timeless and remarkable piece of historic literature. Is that all the Bible is, though—a classic book? Why bother with it? In answer to this question, Alistair Begg examines 2 Timothy, teaching us that the Bible is central to all we do as Christians because it is the means through which God speaks to us.


14But as for you, continue in what you have learned and have firmly believed, knowing from whom1 you learned it 15and how from childhood you have been acquainted with the sacred writings, which are able to make you wise for salvation through faith in Christ Jesus. 16All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness, 17that the man of God2 may be complete, equipped for every good work.
