Chapter Questions BIBL 105 part 1 2 Module 1 Chapter 1 Questions Chapter 1: Question 1- What do we mean by the term “canon”? How did people know or decide which books belonged in the Bible? “The term “canon” comes from the Hebrew word qāneh and the Greek word kanōn Both words originally signified a reed or measuring stick.” (p.22) In my own words I like to think of this like books of the Bible in which is recognized by a Christian Church as unique and inspired. (Arnold, & Beyer, 2008) To best determine which books belonged to the Bible, a series of tests emerged. These tests were based on three factors: author, audience, and teaching. Test 1: demonstrated if it was written by a prophet or other Spirit-led person. This administered that God had to guide the writing process. Test 2: Written to all generations, this means the words must be relevant to all people at all times. Test 3: Written in accord with previous revelation. In which “God’s truth remained the same and would not contradict itself.” Chapter 1: Question 2- Identify the different theories of inspiration. What do evangelicals mean when they use the term “plenary verbal inspiration”? What are the implications of plenary verbal inspiration? The different theories of inspiration include the, Neo-Orthodox Theory, Dictation Theory, Limited Inspiration Theory, and The Plenary Verbal Theory. (pg. 24-25). “Plenary” means “full” or “complete”. “Plenary inspiration asserts that God’s inspiration extends to all of Scripture.” “Verbal” refers to the words of Scripture. “Verbal inspiration means God’s inspiration extends to the very words the writers chose.” (pg. 25) (Arnold, & Beyer, 2008)

Chapter Questions BIBL 105 part 1 3 The implications of “Plenary Verbal Inspiration” are that first of all; “it means the Bible is trust worthy. We can trust it to provide reliable information”. The second plenary is that “the Bible is authoritative. Because it is God’s Word, it speaks with God’s authority.” (pg. 26) Chapter 1: Question 3- Describe the process by which those who copied the Scriptures passed them down to us. Name and briefly describe the significance of the major manuscripts we have. How did we get the Bible? “We can read the Bible today because of the faithful work of many individuals over several generations.” Individuals who are called “Scribes” copied God’s word by hand. The major manuscripts are, Masoretic Text: which is the most reliable Hebrew text. Samaritan Pentateuch: Early testimony to the Pentateuch, but with decidedly Samaritan slant.
