The Development and Decline of the Sufficiency of Scripture

The Development and Decline of the Sufficiency of Scripture

(p.20) 2 The Development and Decline of the Sufficiency of Scripture
Word and Supplement

Timothy Ward

Oxford University Press

This chapter offers a brief chronological survey of various articulations of the doctrine of the sufficiency of Scripture from the patristic period through to the Reformation and beyond, and concludes with an analysis of the post-Reformation decline of the doctrine. The three-part nature of the reconstruction of the doctrine which this work attempts has already been outlined in Chapter 1; the present chapter shows how those three elements emerged and were clarified in the development of the doctrine, and how they each began to decline.

Keywords:   sufficiency of Scripture, doctrine, patristic period, Reformation
