“All scripture…” — 2 Timothy 3:16-17

“All scripture” — 2 Timothy 3:16-17

Question — “ALL scripture is given by inspiration of God”, so there was or is no more scripture to come.

Answer —

  • The book of Revelation was received in 96 A.D., so all scripture had not been given when Paul wrote his letters to Timothy.
  • 2 Timothy 3:15 — “known the holy scriptures” refers to the Old Testament scriptures only, and we only have the writing of 5 out of the 16 early apostles.
  • 2 Nephi 29 — A Bible, A Bible
  • Doctrine and Covenants 68:1-4 — Here is a beautiful definition of ‘scripture’: “…whatsoever they shall speak when moved upon by the Holy Ghost shall be SCRIPTURE.”
