Understanding the Bible
The Bible contains its own context; one part of the Bible interprets another. There is no need for any tradition or book outside the Bible to interpret it for us.
The Bible claims that every word in it was written by a prophet, and hence tells us truth which comes from God.There is a considerable amount of evidence which supports this claim
