The Whole Bible

The Bible is a collection of writings that span over two thousand years.  There are many contributors to the writings,  but God inspired it all.  When we read the scriptures and seek to understand them, we need to realize that there is an underlying unity.  If there are items that appear to be contradictory, it is our lack of understanding that is the problem.  As we seek to interpret particular passages of scripture, it is good to remember what is written elsewhere in the Word, and seek to understand the harmony of the message.   It is not Paul’s theology versus John’s theology.  The Bible is God’s Word to us.  It is the revelation of God.  We should treat is as a whole, not as independent parts.
