At the very outset I wish to state, as a basic assumption, that l hold to the divine origin of the Holy Scripture, pointed to by Paul in 2 Tim. 3:16. My conviction is that on account of this origin the apostolic writings are true and reliable in everything they say. When I discuss the methods of argumentation in the New Testament, that is not meant to throw doubt on the position of the Lutheran Church that these writings come from the eternal and infallible mind or God, and. are the product of divine inspiration.
