Jesus says, “I Am the Bright Morning Star.” Christ is the Dawning of Eternity! His Gospel Glory makes all things new, giving all true believers a fresh restart in life. The Gospel is God’s idea, not manmade whatsoever. God chose to reveal his Gospel in his Holy Bible. That is the original, primary and infallible source.
Apostle Paul is crystal clear that his Lord Jesus resurrected on the third day according to the Scriptures. Where did Paul gather this crucial historic truth? 1Cor. 15:1-4: “…Christ died for our sins, and he was buried, and he was resurrected the third day according to the Scriptures.”

Job may be the oldest Bible book written in the times of the patriarchs. The Lord is a revealing, communicating God Who made Himself known to Abraham in Ur of the Chaldees. Job from the land of Uz may have been a near contemporary who not only knew about Abraham’s God the Lord, but had a personal living relationship with Him.

As for you, see that what you have heard from the beginning (of your Christian faith originally from us reputable proven God-sent gospel-deliverers) remains in you.

At first, the Jesus-by-Name Gospel was oral, backed up by the Old Testament Sacred Writings. By the time Timothy met Paul when visiting his home of Derbe, he was a young man steeped in the Sacred Writings. When he heard Paul preach the Jesus-by-Name Gospel, he was ‘made wise for salvation through faith in Christ Jesus.’
Omni Satis Sola Scriptura (All-Sufficient Scripture Alone) is both retroactive (prophets, Christ and apostles based their entire oral body of Gospel Truth backwards to Old Testament exclusively) and prospective (Christ’s apostles and Holy Spirited authors like Mark, Luke, Hebrews writer reduced the entire oral body of New Testament Gospel Truth forward in Matthew-Revelation exclusive of all else).
