Divine inspiration is central to understanding Bible, Pope says
CWN - May 05, 2011
Proper interpretation of the Bible requires a steady awareness of its divine inspiration, Pope Benedict XVI said in a message to the Pontifical Biblical Commission.
The Pope’s message, made public by the Vatican on May 5, was directed to the annual plenary meeting of the commission, which was dedication to a discussion of inspiration in the Bible.
"An interpretation of Sacred Scripture that ignores or forgets its inspiration does not take into account its most important and valuable characteristic: its provenance from God,” the Pope said.
