1. Supernatural Fingerprints

Genesis 1:1 CSB – “In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.”

“There came a time in my life when I doubted the divinity of the Scriptures and I resolved as a lawyer and a judge I would try the Book as I would anything in the courtroom, taking evidence for and against it. It was a long, serious and profound study and using the same principles of evidence in this religious matter as I always do in secular matters, I have come to the decision that the Bible is a supernatural Book, that it has come from God, and that the only safety for the human race is to follow its teachings.” – Salmon P Chase

Matthew 5:18 CSB – “In the same way, let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father in heaven.”

2. Supernatural Endorsement

Matthew 22:43 CSB – He asked them, “How is it then that David, inspired by the Spirit, calls him ‘Lord’

Matthew 24:35 CSB – Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will never pass away.

John 16:12-13 CSB“I still have many things to tell you, but you can’t bear them now. When the Spirit of truth comes, he will guide you into all the truth. For he will not speak on his own, but he will speak whatever he hears. He will also declare to you what is to come.”

2 Peter 1:20-21 CSB – “Above all, you know this: No prophecy of Scripture comes from the prophet’s own interpretation21 because no prophecy ever came by the will of man; instead, men spoke from God as they were carried along by the Holy Spirit.”

2 Peter 3:16b CSB – “There are some things hard to understand in them. The untaught and unstable will twist them to their own destruction, as they also do with the rest of the Scripture.”

1 Timothy 5:18 CSB – “For the Scripture says: Do not muzzle an ox while it is treading out the grain, and, “The worker is worthy of his wages.”

3. Superfluous Manuscripts

“They declare that Judas the traitor was thoroughly acquainted with these things, and that he alone, knowing the truth as no others did, accomplished the mystery of the betrayal; by him all things, both earthly and heavenly, were thus thrown into confusion. They produce a fictitious history of this kind, which they style the Gospel of Judas.” – Irenaeus Against Heresies
