Ministry Reflection - July 02, 2009

God's Word Revealed: 1 Chronicles 29:29-30

But God’s revelation didn’t stop there: He gave more light to His church. After the Pentateuch, the Lord gave the book of Joshua. Many believe Joshua wrote this book, after he finished the book of Deuteronomy: remember that Deuteronomy gives us the record of Moses’ death, which means Moses didn’t complete it. But Joshua didn’t finish the book (Joshua): that book also records his death, which means someone else completed it.

The Lord also gave the books of Judges, Ruth and Samuel (the book of Samuel was originally one book, which was later split into two). Some believe that Samuel wrote the end of Joshua, as well as these other three books. But, as was the case in the previous books, he didn’t write all of Samuel. Since Samuel’s death is recorded in 1 Samuel 25, it’s clear he didn’t write the whole book; someone else completed it. We know from our text that he wrote some things as a part of his ministry, which either made up these books or which were used by later prophets to write these books.

Most importantly to our point is that these books became part of the canon of Scripture: God gave them for our instruction, and they are a part of our rule of faith and practice. Paul tells us, “All Scripture is inspired by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, for training in righteousness; so that the man of God may be adequate, equipped for every good work” (2 Tim. 3:16-17).
