What Jesus said
|If we would take the basics of the Christian faith seriously, then we must begin with what Jesus actually said.||What Jesus Said and the WordIntroductionOne of the sad realities of the Christian faith today is that few Christians have taken the time to know their Bibles and really listen to what the Word of God says. Not only this, but few have taken the time to really listen to what Jesus actually said. The result is that many who profess Christ are led away by what is actually a corruption of the gospel.This result is a soul-destroying lack of knowledge, a spiritual fog and confusion of mind that pervades that which calls itself Christian. There is even much that passes for Christian today which stands in opposition to Jesus’ own words. Doctrines are called “evangelical,” a term which refers to the gospel, which are neither genuinely evangelical or the gospel. The Word of God warns against false gospels and false christs. Jesus, Himself, does so (Matt. 24:4, 5,23, 24). The Scriptures are the only standard by which the spirits may be tried, and they are to be searched.To this problem is added the fact that we are confronted by a multiplying of corrupt paraphrases, (putting things in man’s word, sometimes called dynamic equivalence) which falsely pass as Bible versions and translations. Jesus said, “That till heaven and earth pass, one jot or tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled,” Matt. 5:18. While Jesus is speaking of the law, in the context the law embraces in this text the entire Old Testament. His point is, to use an English parallel, that not one dotted letter “i” and one crossed letter “t” shall pass until all be fulfilled. He clearly teaches by this the absolute principle of verbal, word for word inspiration of Holy Scripture. Paraphrases, which are man’s word, are not Scripture, they are not translations. They are based on a corrupt doctrine of Scripture and its inspiration. They are contrary to the doctrine of Jesus Christ.In harmony with this truth, all quotations are taken from the what is called the King James version (KJV) or the Authorized Version (AV). This is not a matter of traditionalism, custom or love of old form. This version is still the most reliable, verbally accurate version of the Bible in the English language, whatever superficial difficulties it might present to a present day reader.||What Jesus said about.The words of Jesus touch on every aspect of the gospel, the way of salvation, the church and the life of a Christian. It would be impossible to exhaust this subject.Yet there is much that Jesus said and taught that is ignored or set aside today. For one who professes Christ this is a serious matter of sin.The material which follows is intended to address this matter and to call those who have wandered out of the way of the truth to turn again to the Lord.Each article may be read by itself or in sequence one after another, though with some deliberate repetition. The articles may be grouped somewhat according to subject as they are below. An index is also given. The articles are intended to make one think and search the Scriptures.The articles are somewhat grouped by subject:|
- Introduction: 1, 2
- The method of redemption and God’s sovereign grace 3-16

What Did Jesus Believe About the Bible?
Recently, I wrote on the three various ways that Post-Evangelicals relate to the Bible in a piece for Christianity Today. The Protestant Reformers will tend to be invoked by the more conservative faction, whilst Origen and Gregory of Nyssa will be invoked by the more progressive group, respectively. While it is interesting and useful to be guided by the past, the past may be used to support almost any position or idea. “What has been is what will be,” the wise man of the Old Testament remarked, and “what was done is what will be done,” and “there is nothing new under the sun.” There is nothing new under the sun.
A footnote does not constitute a foundation.
The Word of God is Jesus Christ.
We should go no further than him for advice on how to connect to the Holy Scriptures since he is God manifested in the flesh.
Jesus believed that the Old Testament was decisive and binding
It is one of the most effective methods to discover what Jesus believed about the Bible is to pay attention to how he utilized the Bible during his earthly life and ministry (Matthew 4:4). During the Gospel of John 10, Jesus gets embroiled in a violent debate with a hostile Jewish mob. It is because Jesus just made a highly contentious claim: “I and the Father are one” that they are angry against him (John 10:30 ESV). That is a strong remark, and the Jews responded angrily to the news. What’s more, doesn’t the Bible declare: “Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is one”?
- The obvious question: if there is only one God, how can Jesus and the Father both be God at the same time?
- Obviously, the Jews felt the same way.
- “I have shown you many excellent deeds from the Father; for which of these are you going to stone me?” Jesus said.
- “Is it not stated in your Law, ‘I said, you are gods,’ that you are gods?” Jesus responded.
- If I am not performing the works of my Father, then do not believe me; however, if I am performing them, even if you do not believe me, believe the works so that you may know and understand that the Father is in me and that I am in the Father.
It was the Jews who were accusing you of “blasphemy,” claiming that “the Bible teaches there is only one God” and that “you claim to be God.” In answer, Jesus points out that the Bible refers to other individuals as “gods” in Psalm 82:6 – so, the question is not “do I use the word God to refer to myself,” but rather “am I using the word God legitimately,” and by legitimately, I mean according to biblical standards.
- This is what D.A.
- There is no biblical foundation for anybody to object to Jesus’ claim that he is the Son of God, because there are others whom God (the author of Scripture) can address as ‘god’ and’sons of the Most High’ (i.e.sons of God).
- Yes, I have.
- “Scripture cannot be broken,” Jesus believes, which guides him in his response to this specific disagreement (John 10:35 ESV).
- Consequently, if you have a verse and are accurately applying it, you will win the debate.
- They came to him with a fabricated question in an attempt to trap him, but Jesus cuts them off in their tracks.
- After defeating a representative of the Pharisees in a similar manner, Matthew puts the chapter to a close with the words: “And no one was able to answer him a word, nor did anybody dare to ask him any more questions from that day on” (Matthew 22:46 ESV).
- It was that day that the opponents of Jesus learnt an important lesson: never bring a knife to a gunfight.
- When it came to the Old Testament, Jesus thought it to be authoritative, definitive, and binding.
- Take, for example, Matthew 5:19.
- (Matthew 5:19, English Standard Version) Although Jesus did not command his followers to abolish the Old Testament, he used Deuteronomy 8:3 to confront the devil, Exodus 3:6, to confront the Sadducees, and to confront the Pharisees, Psalm 110:1, to confront the Pharisees.
Clearly, Jesus functioned under the idea that the entire Old Testament – when correctly understood – was binding and conclusive, and to be his disciple means that you must operate under the same assumption.
Jesus believed that the Apostles were speaking on his behalf
When Jesus was nearing the conclusion of his earthly career, he held an important discussion with his followers. He informed them that he would shortly die and rise again, after which he would ascend to the heavenly realm. When he was preparing them for those events, he told them, “I still have many things to say to you, but you are unable to handle them at this time.” Because he will not speak on his own authority, but rather on the basis of what he hears, the Spirit of truth will guide you into all truth when he appears.
- He will exalt me, because he will take what is mine and announce it to you as his own.
- (John 16:12–15, English Standard Version) Jesus stated that he had more to say to his followers than he had said to the rest of the world during his time on earth.
- He had promised the twelve that the Spirit would come to teach them what He had left unsaid during His own earthly ministry, and He had kept His promise; thus, the apostolic teaching was in reality the complete and final version of His own teaching.
- Packer offers the following commentary on this passage: In reality, there are no Red Letters to be found.
- What the Father wishes to be stated has been passed on to the Son, who has then been passed on through the Spirit, who has then been handed on to the Apostles.
- You don’t deserve to have a Bible that’s any smaller than Jesus’s.
- Scripture, on the other hand, cannot be broken.
Jesus believed that he was the climax and focus of all of Scripture
When asked why he searched the Scriptures, Jesus said, “You seek the Scriptures because you believe that in them you have everlasting life; and it is they who bear witness about me” (John 5:39 ESV) Jesus felt that the entire Old Testament was a preparation for and a pointing towards his own life and mission, and that the entire Old Testament pointed people towards him. Is it possible that God ordered you to slaughter pigeons and doves, goats and lambs for any reason? Is it possible that he was doing so for some reason?
He wanted you to realize that sin results in death, and he wanted to prepare you for the day when you would recognize and honor me!
“Behold, the Lamb of God, who wipes away the sin of the world!” he exclaimed with the assistance of the Holy Spirit when he first saw Jesus.
(John 1:29, English Standard Version) John has grasped the situation! He saw that the entire Old Testament sacrifice system was attempting to communicate three ideas to a people who were extremely resistant:
That was noticed by John. He saw the entire sacrificial system culminating in the person of Jesus Christ – he saw the entire Old Testament Scripture pushing people in the direction of, and driving them to, the person of Christ. It took a long time for the disciples of Jesus to arrive at the same destination. Even after the resurrection, when they walked along the Road to Emmaus, they were still unable to make all of the connections. Jesus appeared to them in a disguise and walked with them, giving them a Master’s level education in Christian hermeneutics in the process.
- (Luke 24:27 ESV).
- It was a labor of love, but it was also a miracle.
- (Luke 24:45–47, English Standard Version) In order to understand the Bible, Jesus taught his disciples how to read it in such a way that everything in the Old Testament points to the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ!
- That is the way Jesus read the Bible, and it is the basis for the Christian faith today.
- We stand on the foundation laid by the Prophets and the Apostles, with Christ as the cornerstone.
- God is to be praised!

When it comes to the one who is weak in faith, it is appropriate to greet him but not to engage in a debate about his beliefs.

The one who consumes food should not be despised by the one who abstains, and the one who abstains should not cast judgment on the one who consumes food, for God has welcomed him. After all, who are you to pronounce judgment on a servant of someone else? It is in the presence of his own master that he will either succeed or fail.

Whenever man began to proliferate and girls were born into their families, the sons of God saw that the female descendants of man were gorgeous. And they were free to choose whom they wanted to be their spouses. As a result of this, the Lord stated, “My Spirit will not dwell in man forever, for he is flesh; his days will be 120 years.” The Nephilim were present on the planet at those times, as well as subsequently, when the sons of God entered into relationships with human women and produced offspring to them via those relationships.

The heavens and the earth were created by God in the beginning of time. The earth was devoid of shape and empty, and darkness hung over the surface of the ocean’s depths. And the presence of the Holy Spirit was hanging over the surface of the waves. As soon as God declared, “Let there be light,” there was illumination. And God saw that the light was pleasing. And God divided the light from the darkness in the beginning. God called the light Day, and the darkness Night, and he created them both.

What Jesus Taught about Scripture
If you don’t know the section you’re searching for, you can use theBibleonline to search for terms.
All Scripture Was Divinely Inspired
Jesus thought that the Bible, in its whole, was God-breathed in its entirety. When Jesus was challenged with the devil’s temptation, He responded as follows: “It is written, ‘Man shall not live by food alone, but by every word that proceeds from the mouth of God.'” (Matthew 4:4 English Standard Version) Jesus was a firm believer in the infallibility of the Scriptures. Every word that emanates from the mouth of God is to be followed to the letter by humans. To Jesus, every part of the body, as well as every utterance, was significant.
It is my sincere belief that until heaven and earth pass gone, not even the tiniest letter or stroke of a letter will be removed from the law until all is completed.
(Matthew 5:17-18, New International Version) Jesus acknowledged that the entire Bible was divinely inspired by God and accepted it as such. There are no exceptions.
The Old Testament Is Historically Accurate
When Jesus talked of the Old Testament, he was speaking of true historical events. He was certain that the individuals mentioned were real people, and that the events recounted genuinely occurred. Adam and Eve (Matthew 19), Jonah and the huge sea monster (Matthew 12), and Noah and the Flood (Matthew 24) are examples of such stories (Matthew 24). Nothing in the New Testament suggests that Jesus challenged any of the stories found in the Old Testament in the least.
The Bible Is a Unity
The Old Testament was described by Jesus in terms of genuine historical events. He was certain that the individuals named were real people, and that the events described were true occurrences that took place in history. Adam and Eve (Matthew 19), Jonah and the whale (Matthew 12), and Noah and the Flood (Matthew 24) are examples of biblical characters (Matthew 24). Nothing in the New Testament suggests that Jesus challenged any of the stories found in the Old Testament in the least bit.
Jesus Said the Scripture Must Be Fulfilled
When Jesus talked of the Old Testament, he was speaking about historical events. He felt that the individuals mentioned were real people, and that the events written genuinely occurred. Adam and Eve (Matthew 19), Jonah and the huge sea monster (Matthew 12), and Noah and the Flood (Matthew 24) are examples of biblical characters (Matthew 24). There isn’t even the tiniest indication that Jesus questioned any of the stories included in the Hebrew Bible.
He Said God’s Word Is True
Jesus talked about the Old Testament in terms of genuine historical events. He felt that the individuals named were real people, and that the events described were true. These include: Adam and Eve (Matthew 19), Jonah and the big sea monster (Matthew 12), and Noah and the Flood (Matthew 24). (Matthew 24). There is not the least indication that Jesus placed doubt on any of the stories recorded in the Old Testament.
The Scriptures Are Sufficient for Salvation
To save a person, all that is required is that they believe what the Bible says is true. Throughout the parable Jesus gave about the rich man and Lazarus, the Lord made it very obvious that the Scriptures provided all of the knowledge a person needed to be saved: In response, he remarked to him, “If people do not listen to Moses and the prophets, they will not be persuaded, even if one is raised from the dead.” (Luke 16:31 King James Version) ‘If people do not react to Moses and the prophets, they will not be convinced even if someone comes from the dead,’ he responded to him, according to the New English Translation.’ (Luke 16:31 NET) (Luke 16:31 NET) According to Jesus, the Scriptures included sufficient knowledge for a person to make an informed decision about whether or not to follow Christ.
Jesus Appealed to Scripture to Defend His Actions
In order to justify His acts, Jesus used the Scriptures, as we can see. When Jesus was arrested, he claimed that it was a fulfillment of Scripture: “Are you coming out with swords and clubs to capture me as though I were a bandit?” he asked the masses. Despite the fact that I sat in the temple teaching day after day, you did not arrest me. “However, all of this has occurred in order to bring the prophetic texts to fruition,” says the author. Then he was forsaken and fled by all of his disciples.
Then they arrived in Jerusalem, according to the gospel of Mark.
He flipped over the tables of the moneychangers and the seats of those selling doves, and he made it clear that no one would be allowed to bring products into the temple courtyards with them.
Based on Jesus’ remarks, it is apparent that He thought the Bible to be completely trustworthy.
His view was that God’s Word was authoritative, that God of the Old Testament was the living God, and that the instruction contained in the Old Testament was God’s teaching on how to live a godly life. In other words, God confirmed what was written in the Bible. This was the point of view of Jesus.
The Importance of Jesus’ Testimony
The witness of Jesus is essential because the Bible portrays Him as working on behalf of God the Father. Jesus carries out all of God’s authority in the world. Through Jesus’ bodily resurrection from the grave, the Father confirmed that Jesus is His own divine Son. In his letter to the Romans, Paul stated that, while God has overlooked the times of human indifference, God now commands all people everywhere to repent because he has set a date for the judgment of the world in righteousness by a man whom he has appointed, and he has given assurance to all by raising him from the dead.
(Romans 1:1-4 NET) (Romans 1:1-4 NET) When Jesus claimed that He had been granted all power in heaven and on earth, he was referring to the entire universe.
” ‘Therefore, go and make disciples of all countries, baptizing them in the name of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, and teaching them to follow everything that I have commanded you; and behold, I am with you always, even to the end of the world,’ says the Lord Jesus Christ.
Whatever He says is final and binding.
Jesus and Truth: He Is the Standard of Truth
Jesus Christ said that He is the Way, the Truth, and the Life. Jesus declared Himself to be “the Truth” in one of His most well-known remarks. I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one else can do these things for you. (King James Version, John 14:6) This declaration implied far more than the simple fact that He was a trustworthy individual. As the Truth, He reveals Himself to be the standard of truth in the sense that He is the benchmark of truth. In the Book of Revelation, John referred to Him as “the trustworthy witness,” which means “the one who bears witness with integrity.” From the apostle John to the seven churches that are located in Asia: We extend grace and peace to you from “he who is,” and who was, and who is to come, as well as from the seven spirits who stand before his throne, and from Jesus Christ—the faithful witness, the firstborn from among the dead, and ruler over the kingdoms of the earth.
- To the one who loves us and has set us free from our sins at the expense of his own blood, we give thanks.
- 1:4-5 NET) (Rev.
- Write the following to the angel of the church at Laodicea: “This is the solemn pronouncement of the Amen, the faithful and true witness, the inventor of God’s creation,” and then sign your name with it.
- 3:14 NET) (Rev.
- “You are accurate in stating that I am a king,” Jesus said.
- “My voice may be heard by everyone who is of the truth.” (John 18:37 New American Standard Bible) Jesus did not only come to witness to the meaning of truth; He came to testify to the fact that He is Truth.
As a result, everything He says on any issue is considered to be the ultimate word on that subject.
We Have Three Choices with Respect to Jesus’ Testimony
The Truth, according to Jesus Christ, is He who declares Himself to be. Jesus declared Himself to be “the Truth” in one of His most well-known speeches. I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one else can do these things for me. According to the King James Version, John 14:6 In this case, the fact that He was a trustworthy individual meant far more than just that. Truth, in the sense of a standard of truth, is what he defines Himself to be. In the Book of Revelation, John refers to Him as “the trustworthy witness,” which means “the one who bears witness with integrity.” Continuing the lineage of John, we come to the seven churches of Asia.
- To the one who loves us and has freed us from our sins at the cost of his own blood, we give thanks.
- “This is the solemn proclamation of the Amen, the faithful and truthful witness, the inventor of God’s creation,” write to the angel of the church in Laodicea, along with the following: In the New International Version of the Bible, the verse is Revelation 3:14 NET.
- “You properly state that I am a king,” Jesus responded.
- “My voice may be heard by everyone who is of the truth.
- Jesus did not only come to witness to the meaning of truth; He came to testify to the fact that He Himself is Truth.
Jesus Was a Deceiver
If Jesus was aware that the Scriptures included faults yet continued to teach the people that they were error-free, He was deceiving them. Jesus would be found to have lied as a result of this. No matter what his motivation may have been, it would demonstrate that we could not put our faith in either Him or the Scriptures. There is, however, no proof that Jesus ever lied about anything in his life.
Jesus Was Ignorant
In other words, if Jesus was aware that the Scriptures had inaccuracies yet taught the people that they were error-free, He was deceiving them. According to this, Jesus was deceiving the people. This would demonstrate that we could not put our faith in Him or the Scriptures, regardless of his motivation. No proof exists, on the other hand, that Jesus ever made up a falsehood about anything.
The Bible Is Inerrant
One explanation that is consistent with the facts is that Jesus taught the inerrancy of the Bible because He was confident that it was correct. As the Son of God and the rising Savior, Jesus has proved that He possesses the power to make such pronouncements on His own.
The last word on the matter belongs to him. If Jesus believed that the Scriptures were without mistake, then the Scriptures are also without error. That’s the end of the narrative.
Christians Should Have the Same View on Inerrancy as Jesus
For the believer, Jesus’ attitude toward the Scriptures represents the Christian viewpoint. As a result, if Christians are to maintain consistency, they must approach the Bible in the same way that our Lord did, believing it to be without mistake. Anyone who professes to be a follower of Jesus but denies His evidence regarding the nature of Scripture is not surrendering to His authority. Jesus instructed His followers to take lessons from Him. Matthew instructs us to “take my yoke upon you, and learn from me,” because “I am gentle and humble in heart,” and “you will find rest for your souls” by doing so.
“Yet why do you call Me ‘Lord, Lord,’ but do not obey the things that I command?” Jesus inquired of His followers.
Those who profess to be His disciples and to follow Him as Lord should take His interpretation of Scripture seriously.
Summary – Question 32Did Jesus Believe the Scriptures Were Without Error?
The viewpoint of Jesus on the subject of Bible mistakes is unambiguous: He held that the Scriptures were devoid of errors (John 17:17). This can be seen in the fact that He considered every word to be trustworthy, believed the entire Old Testament to be historically accurate, taught that the Scriptures were a unified whole, argued that everything written must be fulfilled, and believed that it contained enough information sufficient to save him and his disciples. He also cited passages from the Bible to support his behavior.
We can’t disagree with Jesus’ attitude without compromising His authority as a result of our actions.
Otherwise, He was either a deception with malicious intent or a fool who was completely unaware of the situation.
This is the biblical perspective, and it is the direction in which all of the evidence points.
What Did Jesus Say About the Bible?
What did Jesus have to say about the books of the Old Testament? Finding a clear picture of how Jesus viewed the Old Testament law might be challenging. His statements included the following: “The law and the prophets were in effect until John.” Since then, the good news of God’s kingdom has been spread, and everyone has been attempting to enter it with bated breath. Although heaven and earth can both pass away, it is much more difficult for a single letter to be struck from the books of law.” 16-17; (Luke 16:16-17.) For further information, see Matthew 5:17-20 and Matthew 11:12-13.
- They can be taken as Jesus stating that the Old Testament law no longer applies as of the time of John the Baptist.
- So, how do we go about resolving this issue?
- “For the law was delivered through Moses; grace and truth came through Jesus Christ,” says the apostle John, pointing us in the correct road.
- Jesus, as well as the Jewish religious authorities with whom he was conversing, frequently referred to the Old Testament law as written by Moses rather than as authored by God.
- On one occasion, Jesus was asked a question about the legality of divorce, which he answered affirmatively.
- This is why a man must abandon his father and mother in order to be united with his wife, and the two will become one flesh.
In order to protect what God has brought together, let no one tear it apart.” Those present questioned him as to “why Moses directed that a divorce certificate be issued and that she be placed in a mental institution?” He told them, “Because of your hardness of heart, Moses permitted you to divorce your wives, although this was not the case from the beginning.” See Matthew 19:5-9, as well as Mark 10:2-9, for further information.
As a result, there is no clear explanation of Jesus’ attitude toward the Old Testament.
(See, for example, Matthew 5:21-22; 27-28; 7:12; 12:1-8) And, fortunately for us, he made it very clear that the Old Testament law could be summed up in just two commands: “‘You will love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind.'” (See, for example, Matthew 5:21-22; 27-28; 7:12; 12:1-8) This is the first and most important commandment of all.
(Matthew 22:37-40; Mark 12:37-40.) In addition, see Mark 12:28-34, and Luke 10:25-28).
Yes, he does, without a doubt.
We don’t have to be concerned about following the laws of the Old Testament.
The apostles were urged by Jesus to educate new disciples to “follow all that I have commanded you” before he left our planet (Matthew 28:20).
In the last section of this page, there is a link to a list of Jesus’ orders, which is titled “What does Jesus tell his followers to do?” What did Jesus have to say about the Bible’s first five books?
There were no New Testament books written during the time period in which Jesus was teaching.
His words, on the other hand, did not imply that the Holy Spirit would encourage his disciples to write books or letters to one another.
The only time Jesus mentioned studying the scriptures was at the Last Supper.
This is not what he intended by his statements.
While the religious leaders are being criticized for believing, imagining, supposing, or supposing that they would find eternal life in their scriptures, the fact is that those exact texts speak of Jesus, who is the only one who has the ability to provide them with eternal life.
Not that we shouldn’t study our Bibles, but Jesus lays a strong focus on instructing his followers to love one another, pray for one another, be humble, and serve others.
The importance of studying the scriptures is not stressed by Jesus.
The New Testament was not mentioned by Jesus at all.
