Then said I, Lo, I come: in the volume of the book it is written of me,

.Epic of Gilgamesh
.Protestant reformation of the 16th century
.What does it mean when we say the scripture is inspired?
.How- into the air?
.His Spirit thru the people- apostles/prophets
.We are living letters
.Not just words on a page
.But the Word written by the Spirit- on our hearts [that’s the New Testament- not canon but regeneration]
.Tertullian ‘Have we chased God into a book’?
.Why did the early church father say this?
.The Magisterium question [Luther versus the Church]
.The question over Jude and Peter
.Was it pseudepigraphy?
.Socrates- Plato- Aristotle
.Why did Luther call the letter of James a ‘Straw epistle’?
.Fallible collection of infallible books?
.That was the original position of the reformers
.The Catholic church- and I- reject that position [to be fair- most Protestants as well]
.The issue was authority- where does it reside- in the scripture alone- or in the church too- which the bible calls ‘the pillar and ground of the truth’
.What about the epistle of Barnabas? http://www.earlychristianwritings.com/text/barnabas-lightfoot.html
.The reality of incarnation is greater than words on a page
.Constantine and the 4th century
.The confession of Peter
.God does not by-pass the dynamic of the people of God- the Spirit in a community- the rock upon which the church is built
Now ye are the body of Christ, and members in particular.
