What is the purpose of the bible
What is the purpose of the bible? What is the message of the scripture? It is the testimony of Jesus. The scriptures make us wise for salvation in Christ.
2 Timothy 3:14-16 says,
But continue thou in the things which thou hast learned and hast been assured of, knowing of whom thou hast learned them; And that from a child thou hast known the holy scriptures, which are able to make thee wise unto salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus. All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness.
John 5:39-40 says,
Search the scriptures; for in them ye think ye have eternal life: and they are they which testify of me. And ye will not come to me, that ye might have life.
