In reading the Bible, we inevitably discover inconsistencies, historical errors, outdated scientific theories and some questionable morality. For many of us, this has been more than enough to shipwreck our confidence in Scripture. So, what’s a person to do with these problems—especially when it feels like our faith is on the line? In this series we apply the lens of the cross to the idea of Scriptural inspiration. We learn that just as God accomplishes his purposes through “foolish and weak” things like the cross, he communicates his message through the writing of foolish and weak humans. In this way the problems of Scripture actually reveal God’s greatness because he can use an imperfect book to pass on perfect truth.
