(HOW THE NEW TESTAMENT CAME TOGETHER)
AS TO THE PAST – John 14:26b
The Gospels are not the product of unaided memories.
AS TO THE PRESENT – John 14:26a; 16:13a
Through the apostles, God has spoken his final word to us.
AS TO THE FUTURE – John 16:13b
The apostles faithfully reported what had been revealed to them.

2 Peter 1:12; 3:2.
INDISPENSABLE - Acts 2:42.
AUTHORITATIVE - 1 Corinthians 14:37; 1 John 4:6
