“All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is
profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction,
for instruction in righteousness.” 2 Timothy 3:16KJV
The term Bibliology (from Greek biblos meaning
“book”) refers to the study of the nature of the Bible
as revelation. It often includes such topics as
revelation, inspiration, inerrancy, canonicity,
illumination and interpretation. Some, or all, of
these terms may be familiar to you; this month, I
want to focus on inspiration.
“Given by inspiration of God translates the Greek

word theopneustos, which literally means “God-
breathed.” This is Scripture’s most important

statement about itself, meaning that Scripture is
the product of God’s creative breath. Therefore,
being God’s own utterance, it is properly called “the
Word of God.”” (Spirit Filled Life Bible, p. 1,856) The
writers of the Bible did not give their own private
interpretation of things, but wrote the message
which was given to them by God. This month, let’s
learn about the power of the Word!
