The Bible Was Given so that We Might Believe in Christ
Case 1: God's Word - The Bible
Why do we need the Bible?
We need the Bible to show us Who God is and how we can be right with Him through Jesus Christ. 2 Timothy 3:15b – The Holy Scriptures... are able to make you wise for salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus.
This Truth Makes
Some people think that when the Bible says Timothy knew the Scriptures “from childhood,” it means that he had heard them even as a tiny baby. Perhaps his mother read him the Scriptures before he could even understand them! “From childhood”
might also mean that Timothy’s first grammar book was the Scriptures.
Timothy did not have the whole Bible like we do. The word Scriptures here means the Old Testament. It is amazing to think that even without the New Testament as we have it, God still pointed people to have faith in Jesus Christ. All the writings of God’s Word were given so that we would believe in Christ.
