In the Holy Scriptures God has provided for us “the faith which was once for all
delivered unto the saints,” Jude 3, not once upon a time, as if the provision of the
faith was a passing event, leaving something else to be provided later, but “once for
all,” indicating its completeness, its finality and its permanent authority. The Lord
Himself confirmed this authority as being binding and decisive by constantly appealing to
the Scriptures. When, for instance, a certain lawyer questioned Him on a matter of the
greatest importance, He said, “What is written in the law? How readest thou?”.
