The Bible is God’s Word to us. The first words of John’s gospel declare: “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.” Human beings did not create the Word. Rather, God spoke through individual people like Moses and Paul to write and disperse His truths to His people for the benefit of all humanity. The Holy Spirit not only inspired human authors to write the texts of the Bible. God also preserved the integrity of His Word through history. The Word is not our work. The Word came to us.
