record of the New Testament regarding the life and teachings of
Jesus Christ is astounding. For those who accept the evidence of
the reliability and trustworthiness of the New Testament as a historical
document there is but one conclusion: Jesus Christ is the Son of
God who came to this world to reveal and establish divine truth.
on the recorded testimony of the words of Jesus we learn He claimed
to be God's Son having been sent to this world by God to bear witness
to the truth and to reveal God's will to man. We read the accounts
of the mighty works of power which were manifested through Him as
He ministered to those who were oppressed and downtrodden. We learn
of His resurrection from the dead by the power of God the Father
which was verified by over 500 eyewitnesses who saw Jesus alive
after His crucifixion and death. Combined with the record of the
testimony of many others regarding Jesus' life these facts provide
a solid foundation on which to place ones faith in Jesus Christ
as the Son of God.
ramifications of this conclusion are manifold, however the most
important for now is the fact that as the Son of God Jesus' teachings
were authoritative and without error. With this in mind attention
is now turned to the nature of the scriptures. What did the Son
of God have to say about the nature of the Old Testament scriptures?
Furthermore, what did Jesus teach that would have bearing on the
writing of the New Testament and the nature of those documents as
well? Please continue on as these important topics are explored
in more detail.
