Scripture: 2 Peter 1:16-21; Romans 1:20, 25; Colossians 2:2-3; John 14:6

Summary: It’s easy to fall into one of two extremes when we consider the truth of the scripture.  Many doubt the truth of the Bible and easily lump it in with other books of wisdom, philosophy or even fiction.  For those who hold to the truth of the Bible, we may do so from a defensive posture, without understanding the reasons that so many who have critically examined the Bible are nonetheless convinced of its veracity.  How do we confidently affirm the scriptures as true, without being prone to overstatement in response to the attacks that are commonly made on the Bible?  How can we see the Bible as true, but still affirm and benefit from God’s other modes of revelation to us?  How does Jesus’ “I am” declaration in John 14:6 help us to expand our understanding of what is True and where we might find Truth?
