A three-part series that serves as a refresher for pastors or an introduction to this important doctrine for use in an adult Bible class. Dr. Cross covers the importance of the doctrine of the Word of God, with an emphasis, though not solely, upon 2 Timothy 3:16-17: All Scripture is inspired by God and is useful for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness, so that everyone who belongs to God may be proficient, equipped for every good work.” The Word of God is divinely inspired and infallible in its original form and Dr. Cross provides powerful and Biblical teaching that all Christians can profit from.
