FAQ // Part 4
Scripture is an important part of faith, and it’s important to understand it as such: a part of faith. The Bible doesn’t contain all that God was doing in history. It does, however, show us how the Jewish people approached God in their history. The Bible was put together as a whole book much later than it was written, and these verses that talk about “Scripture” are referring to the Torah (first 5 books) and perhaps even the whole Jewish Bible (Old Testament), but none of the New Testament was affirmed as Scripture at that point. It’s important to maintain the context and purity of what the author(s) were referring to. Also, Jesus said that he didn’t come to abolish the law (Torah - first 5 books), but to fulfill them. In other words, they’re useful, so see God in them. The Bible reveals to us the nature of God when we learn to read it in the right context, which in turn shows us who we are to become.
