Out of whose mouth?
'God-breathed' is not the only account which Scripture
gives of itself, since God's mouth was not the only mouth
involved in its production. The same Scripture which says
'the mouth of the LORD has spoken' (Is. 1:20) also says
that God spoke 'by the mouth of his holy prophets' (Acts
3:18, 21). Out of whose mouth did Scripture come, then?
God's or man's? The only biblical answer is 'both'.
Indeed, God spoke through the human authors in such a way that his words were simultaneously their words, and their words were simultaneously his. This is the double
authorship of the Bible. Scripture is equally the Word of
God and the words of human beings. Better, it is the Word of God through the words of human beings.
grace and peace to you,
For Mercy Street Ministries, I'm Stan Baldwin.
