Text: Matthew 28:18
Then Jesus came to them and said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me.
Other texts: Isaiah 40:8, 55:11; Hebrews 1:1-2; Romans 13:1; Philippians 2:9-11; John 19:11, John 8:39-40; Revelation 4-5; Psalm 33:6
The very important technical way we speak of scripture's authority is this: All authority comes from God. The Bible mediates God's authority in that it's His word. The Bible technically is not authoritative but Father, Son, and Holy Spirit is authority through the word.
