Taking the Word to the World

Four Purposes of All Scripture

“All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness” (2 Timothy 3:16).

  1. Doctrine – What is right?
  2. Reproof  – What is not right?
  3. Correction – How to get right?
  4. Instruction – How to stay right?

    Well said, Prof!

    Commentary on Deuteronomy done! However, I have more work to do on study questions and objectives. As the old saying goes, “Grandma was slow, but she was old.” Since I now fit both categories, could that be said of me? However, my mind says, “It is better to say “older” than “old.”


  3. A beautiful post ! The Word of God is so rich !
