Ep. 26 – Introduction to “Scripture Is…” Series

In this episode I introduce the series we will be covering called “Scripture is…”

We will be using the Westminster Confession of Faith (WCF) Ch. 1 for this series. I referenced a teaching series by Pastor Joel Ellis were he goes through the WCF section by section. You can check out the entire series here.

Series Outline: Scripture Is…

Pt. 1 – Scripture is Special Revelation – Pt 1/6 (WCF 1.1)

Pt. 2 – Scripture is Inspired – Pt 2/6 (WCF 1.2-3)

Pt. 3 – Scripture is Authoritative & Self-Authenticating – Pt 3/6 (WCF 1.4-5)

Pt. 4 – Scripture is Sufficient – Pt 4/6 (WCF 1.6)

Pt. 5 – Scripture is Understandable – Pt 5/6 (WCF 1.7-8)

Pt. 6 – Scripture is Supreme & Interprets Itself – Pt 6/6 (WCF 1.9-10)

 I do recommend for listeners to review each section of the WCF CH. 1, along with its scripture references. Each section can be summarized by doctrine(s) in this way:

  1. General & Special Revelation 
  2. The Canon of inspired Scripture  
  3. Apocrypha Not Canon/Inspired
  4. Sola Scriptura – Authority of Scripture
  5. Self-Authenticity 
  6. Sufficiency & illumination
  7. Perspicuity
  8. Translation and Regulative Principle of Worship  
  9. Analogy of Faith
  10. Supremacy of Scripture
