What Christians claim about the Bible

The problem with Sola Scriptura (as modernly misunderstood, which is not what was meant by the Reformers) is that you have the Bible floating out there on nothing — as if the Bible fell from heaven unmediated. This is what Muslims claim for the Koran and what Mormons claim for their special book, but it’s not what Christians claim about the Bible!

The authority of Scripture is predicated upon the authority of the Church. The authority of the Church is predicated upon the authority of Christ.

– Brian Zahnd, ‘Credo’
