That supernatural influence exerted on the minds of the sacred writers by the Spirit of God, in virtue of which they unerringly declared his will. Whether what they wrote was previously familiar to their own knowledge, or, as in many cases it must have been, an immediate revelation from heaven; whether his influence in any given case was dictation, suggestion, or superintendence; and however clearly we may trace in their writings the peculiar character, style, mental endowments, and circumstances of each; yet the whole of the Bible was written under the unerring guidance of the Holy Ghost, 2 Timothy 3:16 .

Christ everywhere treats the Old Testament Scripture as infallibly true, and of divine authority-the word of God. To the New Testament writers inspiration was promised, Matthew 10:19,20 John 14:26 16:13 ; and they wrote and prophesied under its direction, 1 Corinthians 2:10-13 14:37 Galatians 1:12 2 Peter 1:21 3:15 Revelation 1:1,10-19 .
