No need to defend the Book
Century after century, the book stands. It cannot be broken. In the end, archaeology and history vindicate the accuracy of its background scenes. Philology and linguistics endorse its claims. The onward march of events relentlessly fulfills its predictions. The arguments of the critics break down before the answers of the defenders of God’s Word. But the book needs no defense. It is able to defend itself because it is God-breathed, God-sealed, and God-endorsed by the Son of God.
