While it’s exciting to hear what people have to say about the Bible, I don’t think there’s any better way to appropriately understand what we’re holding, than to look at what God’s Word has to say about itself.
“The law of the LORD is perfect, reviving the soul; the testimony of the LORD is sure, making wise the simple“(Psalm 19:7).
God’s Word transforms us. It transforms me. It transforms you. The law of the Lord is perfect, literally meaning all-sided, many-faceted, all-encompassing, comprehensive. The law of the Lord is so perfect that it revives or converts the soul—the part of you that will live forever.
Law is the word Torah: law for life, the rule for living. God’s Word is the norm—it is the standard by which every other truth is measured or assessed. People come and people go, but the law of the LORD remains.
