What is Scripture?

For Christians, scripture means the Bible, a collection of 66 books that together record how God revealed Himself and His love to humankind.

When you see the words “Scripture Alone” they mean that the Bible, the inspired (God-breathed) Word of God, is the only source and authority for Christian teaching. It’s not about what people say, but what God says. The Lutheran reformers in the 16th century wrote in The Book of Concord that “Holy scripture alone remains the only judge, rule, and guiding principle, according to which, as the only touchstone, all teachings should and must be recognized and judged, whether they are evil correct or incorrect.” Martin Luther, who sparked the Reformation in 1517, explained “People are not to believe me, the church, the fathers (teachers from the earliest days of Christianity), the apostles, or even an angel from heaven if we teach anything contrary to the Word of God. But the Word of the Lord should stand forever.”

Watch

Luther, who was constantly troubled by his own inability to be a “good person”, searched Scripture hoping to find a merciful God, but as he studied the Bible he learned that this merciful God had found him! Through Scripture we learn that Jesus, God’s only son, is the Saviour who “came to seek and to save the lost” (Luke 19:10b).
