Bibliology – The Doctrine of the Bible

Section 1 – Part 1

The Doctrine of Scripture


Bibliology—Doctrine of the Bible


  • I believe that God has given His complete written word in the 66 books of the Bible (39 in the Old Testament and 27 in the New Testament).


  • That scripture was given to mankind through the inspiration of the Holy Spirit to the God selected human authors (2 Pet. 1:21; 2 Tim. 3:16).


  • The scriptures take on the personal style and vocabularies of the human authors, however it is completely God-breathed, and inspired (2 Tim. 3:16; Heb. 1:1; Acts 3:21) and thus the bible is complete, infallible and inerrant as it stands (Mat. 5:18; John 10:35).


  • That the inspiration of Scripture was verbal and plenary (Matt. 5:18).


  • The scriptures as it stand is the only communication from God for the believer’s faith and conduct.


  • The scripture was complete with the writing of the book of Revelation. (Rev. 22:18-19).  There is no new Revelation, therefore nothing is to be added to scripture.


  • I believe that the Bible should be interpreted literally using historical, grammatical and theological methods.


  • The scripture cannot be interpreted without its meanings being revealed by the Holy Spirit (1 Cor. 2:9-16).


  • I believe that the scripture is Dispensational. God’s revelation has been progressive in nature (Heb. 1:1; John 1:17).


Bibliology Outline


  • Is the Bible truly God’s word?
  • What is meant by inspiration of the scriptures?
  • Does the Bible have any errors, contradictions or discrepancies?
  • What is canonicity?
  • Is there any proof for the inerrancy and inspiration of scripture?
  • How do we know the difference between terms such as revelation, inspiration, illumination and interpretation?
  • What is the difference between a dynamic equivalent, a fluid equivalent, and a paraphrase version of the Bible?
  • Are some translations better or more inspired than others?
  • Are some translations more honoring to Christ or more easily memorized?
  • What is meant by textual criticism?
  • What is meant by gender neutral or gender sensitive translations of the Bible?
