The lesson on September 26, 2021 was part 10 of the “Bible Inspiration and Preservation” study.  This week we reviewed the Godly factor in the preservation of the scriptures and considered those that were selected to revise the Greek text behind the King James Version of the Bible and were asked if they would be considered godly?  The Apostle Paul wrote as if the scriptures were readable and authoritative. We learned that God gave His word to be accountable (as shown in Matthew 4:4; Deuteronomy 29:29; 2 Timothy 2:15; 3:15,16 KJV).  How can God hold people to account without the preservation of scripture? (Colossians 1:28; Ephesians 6:8 KJV).  It comes down to the belief of faithful transmission.  As PAul wrote in 1 Timothy 3:14-15 KJV “14 These things write I unto thee, hoping to come unto thee shortly: 15 But if I tarry long, that thou mayest know how thou oughtest to behave thyself in the house of God, which is the church of the living God, the pillar and ground of the truth.”  The scripture reading was from Jeremiah 36:1-4 KJV

“1 And it came to pass in the fourth year of Jehoiakim the son of Josiah king of Judah, that this word came unto Jeremiah from the Lord, saying, 2 Take thee a roll of a book, and write therein all the words that I have spoken unto thee against Israel, and against Judah, and against all the nations, from the day I spake unto thee, from the days of Josiah, even unto this day. 3 It may be that the house of Judah will hear all the evil which I purpose to do unto them; that they may return every man from his evil way; that I may forgive their iniquity and their sin. 4 Then Jeremiah called Baruch the son of Neriah: and Baruch wrote from the mouth of Jeremiah all the words of the Lord, which he had spoken unto him, upon a roll of a book.”
