FAQ #88 Why didn’t Jesus write any of the books of the Bible?

Why didn’t Jesus write any of the books of the Bible?

ANSWER:

II Timothy 3:16 – All Scripture is given by inspiration of God and is profitable…. Hebrews 12:2 – Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith. II Peter 1:21 – For the prophecy (the Word) came not in old time by will of man, but holy men of God spake as they were moved (inspired) by the Holy Spirit.

In actuality, then, Christ wrote, through human instruments, the whole Bible from cover to cover. Our Lord is the visible manifestation of the invisible God (Godhead) – Colossians 1:15. So, He personifies all three Persons. When Acts 16 says the Lord opened Lydia’s heart, we know it was actually by the Holy Spirit. When Peter is told in Matthew 16, flesh and blood had not revealed it, but your Father in heaven, it too was by the Holy Spirit. To understand the workings of the Trinity is beyond human understanding, so we take it by Faith. Slowly digest Isaiah 9:6 – For unto us (Israel) a child is born, unto us a son is given and the government shall be upon his shoulder (King of Kings) and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counselor, the Mighty God, the Everlasting Father, the Prince of Peace. Remember whom it is talking about in the first part of the verse – the Son.
