breathc_2311“The Word of God is the sword of the Spirit, and Scripture alone is the Word of God for us…. This is the weapon God has given and, let it be remembered, Scripture, because of its sufficien­cy, is adequate to every controversy and to every challenge if we interpret and apply it aright in the richness and fullness of its counsel.” (“Reforma­tion,” Collect­ed Writings of John Murray, Vol. 1, p. 293).

The Sunday afternoon Bible study at Trinity Presbyterian Church of the OPC focuses on 2 Timothy 3:14-17.

sola_7079a“It is a ‘God-righteousness’. Because it is such, God is its author; it is a righteousness that must elicit the divine approval; it is a righteousness that meets all the demands of his justice and therefore avails before God. . . . This is the glory of the gospel; as it is God’s power operative unto salvation so is it God’s righteousness supervening upon our sin and ruin.” (John Murray, Commentary on the Epistle to the Romans, NICNT, Vol. 1, p. 31).
