“If Jesus was resurrected, then he is the long-awaited Messiah, Christ, King, Son of God, and Prophet par excellence. And if that’s true, then we’d better pay attention to him, including his endorsement of the entire Old Testament as the Word of God. Not only that, but we have every reason to trust that he did precisely what he promised he would do—send the Holy Spirit to guide his apostles into all the truth he wanted to reveal to them for the good of the church—and then to trust the Spirit’s work of guiding the church in recognizing that truth. In the end, therefore, the answer a Christian will give to the question, ‘Why do you trust the Bible?’ is, ‘Because King Jesus the Resurrected endorsed the Old Testament and authorized the New.’”
