Chapter Summary

This chapter deals with the foremost means whereby it is revealed, namely, Holy Scripture, which is the principle and foundation for all Christian teaching. For not only to those who are untrained in the Christian faith, and beginners, but also to those who are more accomplished and have been regenerated, Holy Scripture everywhere commends its own use and necessity, in the Old and the New Testament. The form and the goal of Holy Scripture prove the same divine origin. It is made clear to the readers that the authority of Holy Scripture is much greater than that of the Church by the fact that the Church is capable of erring while Scripture cannot. Moreover, it is clear that the authority of the Church is derived from Scripture, just as the papal teachers themselves recognize, since they try to prove their own authority from Scripture.

Keywords: Christian faith; Church; Holy Scripture; New Testament; Old Testament; papal teachers
