Words matter. That is why we have God’s words written down. Scripture is a collection of 66 books (39 OT, 27 NT) written by 40 different authors from different backgrounds over the period of 1,500 years. These 66 books have been accepted by the Church as the inspired, infallible, and invaluable words of God and have been passed down from generation to generation for nearly 2,000 years. An essential part of making disciples is teaching others what Jesus commanded. We pass on what we have received, we share what we have learned, so that others can know God by understanding Scripture.
