The Bible hazards the
most unlikely predictions concerning the future, and, when the centuries have brought round the appointed time,
records their fulfillment.
The Bible is a progressive unfolding of truth.
Nothing is told all at once, and once
for all. The law is, “First the blade, then the ear, after that the full grain.”
Without the possibility
of collusion, often with centuries between, one writer of Scripture takes up an earlier
revelation, adds to it, lays down the pen,
in due time another man moved by the Holy Spirit, and another, and another, add new details
till the whole is complete.
beginning to end the Bible testifies to one redemption.
The Bible has one great theme--the Person and work of Christ.
Finally, these writers, some forty in number, writing through twenty centuries,
have produced a perfect harmony of doctrine in progressive unfolding.
This is, to every candid mind,
the unanswerable proof of the divine inspiration of the Bible.”
