Why Do We Believe the Bible Is the Word of God?

Article Index

5. The fifth reason why I believe the Bible is exclusively the Word of God because from Genesis to Revelation it testifies of one person and that is the person of Jesus Christ.

The Old Testament says that Christ is coming. And it tells how he is coming.

In the Gospels, we have found Him.

The Epistles let me tell you more about Him.

In the book of Revelation He is coming again.

In Genesis He is the Seed of the woman.

In Exodus He is the Passover Lamb.

In Leviticus He is the ultimate sacrifice.

In Numbers He is called the Star.

In Joshua He is called the Redeemer.

In Psalms He is the Good Shepherded.

In Isaiah His name shall be called Wonderful Counselor.

In Jeremiah He is called the Lord of Righteousness.

In Daniel He is called the Anointed One.

In Haggai He is called the Desire of all Nations.

In Zechariah He is called the King of kings and Lord of lords.

In Malachi He is called the Messenger of the Covenant and the Sun of Righteousness.

In Matthew He is called Immanuel.

In Mark He is called the Holy One.

In Luke He is called the Horn of Salvation.

In John He is called the Word, the Lamb of God, the Son of God, the I AM, the Good Shepherd, the Living Water, the Light of the world, the Resurrection and the Life.

In Acts He is called the Judge.

In the Epistles He is called our Passover, The Rock, the Chief Cornerstone, the invisible image of God, the Mediator, the Advocate, the God who was manifested in the flesh.

In Revelation He is called the Almighty One, the faithful and true Witness, The Lion of the tribe of Judah, the Alpha and Omega, the First and the Last, the bright and morning Star, and the King of kings and Lord of lords.

The writer to the book of Hebrews said

“God, who at various times and in various ways spoke in time past to the fathers by the prophets, has in these last days spoken to us by His Son, whom He has appointed heir of all things, through whom also He made the worlds; who being the brightness of His glory and the express image of His person, and upholding all things by the word of His power, when He had by Himself purged our sins, sat down at the right hand of the Majesty on high….” (Heb. 1:1-3)
