The Debate Surrounding Biblical Inerrancy

For evangelical Christians, it’s no secret that the Bible is at the center of just about everything we do. We believe it is God-breathed, inspired, and that it is the measuring rod by which we evaluate all moral and spiritual claims.

But is it inerrant?

As follow up questions go, this feels like an easy “yes.”

Nevertheless, biblical inerrancy has long been a feature of debate among Bible-believing Christians. Not because some Christians are arguing that the Bible contains errors, but because of the interpretive assumptions often bound up in the term “biblical inerrancy.”

In this episode, we explore the history surrounding the discussion of inerrancy, the famous Chicago Statement on Biblical Inerrancy, and whether this particular framework is the best way to understand the message and authority of Scripture.
