All Scripture – 2 Timothy 3:16-17

Welcome to Scriptures for Life with TorahFamily.org. Taking time to focus on the Father’s way.

2 Timothy 3:16-17
All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, so that the man of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work.

All scripture. There are many opinions on just what scripture is. There are some who say certain books were removed from the canon and need to be considered scripture still today. Then there are others who say that several books in the Bible today should not be considered scripture.

So, that being said, where does that leave us? What are the verses and books we should consider scripture for today? Since New Testament believers didn’t have a New Testament, what did they consider scripture?

We know YHWH’s word stands forever. According to Isaiah 40:8 that is. So what was the Word Isaiah was talking about? I think there is little doubt for anyone that Isaiah was talking about the Torah. The instructions of YHWH.

His instructions are eternal. They will never change. And it’s these instructions that we find are useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness. It was these instructions that the New Testament believers read and studied to draw closer to the Father.

Let this be a focus in your time of meditation throughout the day. Until next time, Shalom.

Here's something interesting to consider:
