Gilbert on the Authority of the Bible

“In the end, therefore, the answer a Christian will give to the question, ‘Why do you trust the Bible?’ is, ‘Because King Jesus the Resurrected endorsed the Old Testament and authorized the New.’ That’s not a presupposition. It’s not an unthinking, close-your-eyes-and-jump leap of faith. It’s a considered conclusion built from a careful argument that

  1. the Bible is historically reliable;
  2. Jesus was resurrected from the dead; and
  3. the whole of the Bible therefore rests on Jesus’s authority.

That’s why we believe it.

That’s why we trust it.”
