What Did Jesus Teach About the Bible?

Jesus affirmed that the Bible was:

1. Without Error (John 17:17)

2. Historically Reliable (Matthew 12:40, 24:37-39)

Jesus affirmed as historically true some of the most disputed passages of the Old Testament, including the story of Jonah in the whale (Matthew 12:40), the destruction of the world by a flood in the days of Noah (Matt.24:37-39) , and others

3. Divinely Authoritative (Matthew 4:4-10)

4. Scientifically Accurate Regarding the Origin of Man (Matthew 19:4-5)

For example, when He taught on marriage He referred to the literal
creation of Adam and Eve (Matthew 19:4-5)

5. Infallible (John 10:35)

6. Indestructible (Matthew 5:18)

If Jesus was a prophet of God, as even the Qur’an teaches, or even if He was a good teacher (as so many are willing to believe today) it would be wise for us to take His Word on the matter.
