What the Orthodox Believe about the Bible

The Bible is the sacred written record of God’s involvement with His creation – a record received, written down, transmitted, protected by the Church for all ages, and proclaimed for the salvation of the world. The word of God that is Holy Scripture – Old and New Testaments – is distinguished from the Word of God who is the Christ, the Son of the Father and the Second Person of the Holy Trinity. The Bible is the sufficient and inspired written testimony to Christ – from Whom all Scripture derives its authority, about Whom all Scripture speaks, and toward Whom all Scripture points.
