According to Scripture

On the one hand
Andy Stanley says:
Why we must teach the next generation the FOUNDATION of our faith is a an EVENT not a BOOK.

On the other hand

Jesus says:

But all this has taken place that the Scriptures of the prophets might be fulfilled (Mt 26:56). 
26 Was it not necessary that the Christ should suffer these things and enter into his glory?” 27 And beginning with Moses and all the Prophets, he interpreted to them in all the Scriptures the things concerning himself (Lk 24:26-27). 
44 Then he said to them, “These are my words that I spoke to you while I was still with you, that everything written about me in the Law of Moses and the Prophets and the Psalms must be fulfilled.” 45 Then he opened their minds to understand the Scriptures, 46 and said to them, “Thus it is written, that the Christ should suffer and on the third day rise from the dead, 47 and that repentance and forgiveness of sins should be proclaimed in his name to all nations, beginning from Jerusalem (Lk 24:44-47).
St. Paul says:

3 For I delivered to you as of first importance what I also received: that Christ died for our sins in accordance with the Scriptures, 4 that he was buried, that he was raised on the third day in accordance with the Scriptures (1 Cor 15:3-4).


  1. And where do we learn about that event, Andy Stanley?

  2. I am firmly convinced that we suffer so much error because we have failed to hang onto our Lord's doctrine of Scripture.
