The Bible (Part 2): How Did We Get the Bible?

This week, we will examine three common questions about the Bible’s truthfulness. First, we will consider the claim that there are contradictions between the biblical accounts. Then, we will examine the claim that historical and scientific research have proven the Bible untrue. Finally, we will look at several reasons why we can and should trust the Bible as truth without any mixture of error.

One Among Many: Christianity Is Unique Among the Religions
Standing against the idea that all religions lead to God are the words of Jesus Christ. In John 14:6, Jesus made a claim to be the exclusive path to God, saying, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.” In this session, we will examine this assertion of Jesus Christ and see how Christ’s person, His teaching, and His resurrection make Christianity unique among all the world religions. Christ’s uniqueness is good news for a lost world.
