5. Considering Inspiration – How Allusions in the Bible point to a Divine Author

In the last two sessions we have seen that there is a strong case for the fact that the text of the Bible is reliable.  In other words what we read today is what the original authors wrote down so long ago.  And we have also seen that much of what they wrote is verifiable history.  At the very least, the framework of the Gospel accounts are based in verifiable history.

Now we want to use this baseline information to ask a more interesting and controversial question.  Can a case be made as to whether or not there is indeed a Divine Mind (God) behind the gospel narrative?  In this session we just open the case and do some initial exploring, to see if it is even worth continuing to explore this question or not in later sessions.
