Discussion Questions: Baptist Catechism 4

  1. What does the word Scripture mean?
  2. Why are the Scriptures called “holy”? How do they differ from other writings?
  3. Who wrote the Scriptures? (There are two answers to this question. Both are correct. One answer is much more important than the other!) 
  4. Why does our catechism specify that Scriptures are the books of the Old and New Testaments? Go to our confession of faith, the Second London Confession, chapter 1, paragraphs 2 & 3. What do you notice about the relationship between our catechism and confession?
  5. What does our catechism mean when it refers to the Holy Scriptures as our “certain rule”?
  6. Why does our catechism specify that the Scriptures are our certain rule in matters of “faith and obedience”? 
  7. How should this truth be applied by us? How should it change the way we think, feel, speak, and act?
