Question: “Is the Bible relevant for today?”


Answer: Hebrews 4:12 says, “For the word of God is living and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart.” While the Bible was completed approximately 1900 years ago, its accuracy and relevance for today remain unchanged. The Bible is the sole objective source of all the revelation God has given us about Himself and His plan for humanity.

The Bible contains a great deal of information about the natural world that has been confirmed by scientific observations and research. Some of these passages include Leviticus 17:11; Ecclesiastes 1:6-7; Job 36:27-29; Psalm 102:25-27 and Colossians 1:16-17. As the Bible’s story of God’s redemptive plan for humanity unfolds, many different characters are vividly described. In those descriptions, the Bible provides a great deal of information about human behavior and tendencies. Our own day-to-day experience shows us that this information is more accurate and descriptive of the human condition than any psychology textbook. Many historical facts recorded in the Bible have been confirmed by extra-biblical sources. Historical research often shows a great deal of agreement between biblical accounts and extra-biblical accounts of the same events.

However, the Bible is not a history book, a psychology text, or a scientific journal. The Bible is the description God gave us about who He is, and His desires and plans for humanity. The most significant component of this revelation is the story of our separation from God by sin and God’s provision for restoration of fellowship through the sacrifice of His Son, Jesus Christ, on the cross. Our need for redemption does not change. Neither does God’s desire to reconcile us to Himself.

The Bible contains a great deal of accurate and relevant information. The Bible’s most important message—redemption—is universally and perpetually applicable to humanity. God’s Word will never be outdated, superseded, or improved upon. Cultures change, laws change, generations come and go, but the Word of God is as relevant today as it was when it was first written. Not all of Scripture necessarily applies explicitly to us today, but all Scriptures contain truth that we can, and should, apply to our lives today.

  1. There is a reason it is called “The Living Word” for it dwelt among us and we come (to KNOW, not just believe) our Heavenly Father through it’s Life! The Bible is unlike any manuscript ever put to pen, for the Holy Spirit has imbued it with life, a LIFE that we might connect too with real relationship. It is a spiritual work that can ONLY be discerned (understood) when the Holy Spirit woos us to it and opens our willing heart and mind (spirit) to its truths and LIFE.

    God bless!

  2. Looking Up! says:

    Amen! The Holy Bible is the greatest book EVER written!

    Try to compare it to anything else EVER written. Maybe to some writing or novels that have been around for a long time. Writings we were made to study in literature class at school. Some considered great classical writings. All writings can be read over and over again by one person and that person might read something that they missed the first three or more times they read it, but they are still reading nothing except the same old story. That is, all writings EXCEPT for the Holy Bible! The Holy Bible is alive and sharper than any two edged sword! You can read it and read it and study it and God will reveal Himself to you over and over again. AND, when God reveals Himself in His written word to you – you can bet your life that it will always be seen in a little different and deeper way. You can read the same passage of scripture 500 times and or hear it preached 1000 times. Then the Holy Spirit will draw you to a certain passage – (you will find yourself thinking, “what Lord…I already know and understand this”). What happens then? You will find your eyes are opened even more! You will find yourself writing down all sorts of notes, you will probably find yourself on your knees praising the Lord God Almighty! Hallelujah! You will find yourself once again amazed at the power of God and the power of His written and perfect word! The Word of God speaks! It is the only book that can speak to a person over and over again and reveal new truths that are NOT contradictory to previous understanding but only deepening to your understanding. Causing you to love the Lord thy God all the more! Falling in love on a deeper level again and again. NO GREATER BOOK EVER WRITTEN!
