“And the Scripture, foreseeing that God would justify the Gentiles by faith, preached the gospel to Abraham beforehand, saying, ‘In you all the nations shall be blessed’”
And the Scripture,
Paul says that Scripture foresaw the Gentiles coming to faith in the Abrahamic covenant (Genesis 12:3). When the legalists argue against “faith” salvation, they argue against Scripture, especially Genesis 15:6 quoted in Galatians 3:6.
Scriptures are the very voice of God to the person who wants to do God’s will.
God puts His thoughts down on paper so that we can clearly understand His will. When Scripture speaks, God speaks. God puts His thoughts down in writing – God “scribes” his thoughts in Scripture. Despite the charge of bibliolatry, we can never revere the Scriptures too highly. To the person who has an ear for God, the Scriptures are the very voice of God.
