Vast numbers of people today have little or no idea of the content of the Bible, let alone believe in its contents. There are some churches which claim to have the Bible as the sole authority for their beliefs. Other churches (some very large ones at that) claim that the authority of their leaders, or their claimed possession of Holy Spirit gifts and guidance, surpass the authority of Bible teaching.
The Bible claims to be the word of God – God’s inspired revelation of Himself and His Son, and His plan for the world. This claim is either entirely true or it’s a lie. The Bible’s claim to truth is confirmed by its many future predictions that have actually come to pass – particularly predictions about Jesus Christ and God’s people Israel.
In the Old Testament there is a whole library of information about Jesus Christ – his birth, life, death, resurrection and the prospect of his kingship of the world. All of this is confirmed in the New Testament. As to Israel, the Old Testament predicted their scattering and persecution among the nations and their regathering to the Holy Land, both of which have proved dramatically true. Today, some 6.3 million Jews coming or originating from many nations of the world now live in the 70-year-old modern state of Israel.
These facts give us assurance that predicted events that are still future to us today will also come to pass – notably Christ’s return and God’s Kingdom on earth. They also confirm that the Bible has the authority to teach us how to live our lives now – today.
