Scripture: Invention or Inspiration? (2 Peter 1:17-21)

Jason Roddy, November 3, 2013
Part of the Exposition of 2 Peter series, preached at a Sunday Morning service

Peter, who was eyewitness to the transfiguration of Christ, validates the authority of Scripture far above the thoughts of false teachers who deny the majesty of Christ; as they were not there to preview the kingdom and glory of Christ as he, James and John were. Even with such genuine first-hand experience, Peter still testifies that Scripture holds more authority than any man, by saying, "And we have something more sure, the prophetic Word, to which you will do well to pay attention." Thus placing authority of the complete, inspired, permanent living Word of God higher than any experience or thought that comes from the minds of mortal men!

2 Peter 1:17-21

17For he received from God the Father honour and glory, when there came such a voice to him from the excellent glory, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased. 18And this voice which came from heaven we heard, when we were with him in the holy mount. 19We have also a more sure word of prophecy; whereunto ye do well that ye take heed, as unto a light that shineth in a dark place, until the day dawn, and the day star arise in your hearts: 20Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation. 21For the prophecy came not in old time by the will of man: but holy men of God spake as they were moved by the Holy Ghost. (KJV)
