The Bible Is the Authority

Should We Myth-Interpret the Bible?

This is Ken Ham, often a guest on radio and TV on the Bible’s authority and reliability.


Can ancient documents and artifacts shed light on the Bible? Yes they can. But we need to be careful when we use ancient documents to help us interpret the Bible. We have to remember that Scripture is the ultimate authority for theology, history, and more. It is the Bible that is a special revelation from the eyewitness Creator.

So, if something in an ancient document contradicts the Bible, we know that it, not the Bible, must be wrong. We can use the Bible to clarify our understanding of outside sources.

We cannot allow sources outside the Bible to be authorities over God’s Word. These sources were written by fallible men. The Bible, though, was written with God as the ultimate author.
