The Lord Jesus Christ taught that every word of Scripture proceeded from God (Matt. 4:4).
The Lord never corrected or criticized Scripture, even though He did not have the original autographs (John 17:17).
Jesus pre-authenticated the New Testament writings as Scripture (John 14:26; 16:12-13).
Christ Jesus accepted the Old Testament Jewish canon, but rejected the Apocrypha (Luke 24:44).
He taught the doctrine of the preservation of Scripture (Matt. 5:17-18; 24:35; Luke 6:17).
He taught that the Old Testament Scriptures pointed to Him (Luke 24:27,44).
He taught that man will be judged by God's Word (John 12:47-48).
He taught the absolute authority of Scripture (John 10:34-36).
He believed in the Genesis account of creation (Matt. 19:4-6; Mark 10:6-8).
He believed the Flood of Noah was universal (Matt. 24:37-39).
He believed Abraham was a historical figure (John 8:56).
He believed Sodom and Gomorrah were literal places (Matt. 10:15; 11:23-24).
He believed Lot's wife was actually turned into a pillar of salt (Luke 17:32).
He believed God gave the Israelites manna from heaven (John 6:31,49,58).
He believed Jonah and the whale were historical (Matt. 12:39-41).
He believed Moses was the author of the first five books of the Bible (Matt. 8:4; John 5:46; 7:19).
He believed in David's authorship of the Psalms (Matt. 22:43).
He believed Daniel was the author of the book of Daniel (Matt. 24:15).
He believed in the unity of the book of Isaiah (Matt. 13:14-15; Mark 7:6; John 12:38-41).
He believed the Jews had a history of rejecting God's Word (Luke 11:47-51).
The Lord Jesus scolded the Sadducees for their ignorance of Scripture (Matt. 22:29).

Those who claim to be followers of the Lord Jesus Christ ought to hold the same high view of Scripture that He held. Believing Christians hold no other view?
