The first thing that has to be established about the Word, as we approach it to read and understand it, is the absolute authority of the Word. It comes from God; He conceived it; He spoke it to human authors, and they wrote it down, but the Word was created for eternity, not just for certain times or certain people or certain circumstances of mankind. When the Jews wanted to stone Jesus for saying He was the Son of God, He responded with this:
34)"Is it not written in your law, 'I said, You are gods'?
35)"If He called them gods, to whom the word of God came (and the Scripture cannot be broken),
36)"do you say of Him whom the Father sanctified and sent into the world, 'You are blaspheming,' because I said, 'I am the Son of God'?”
