So how are people supposed to approach the Bible and all that it claims?
The first key, and the main key for interpreting and understanding scripture is the supernatural key. That is, the key of realizing we are touching something not made by men, or fashioned from this world. You use this key when you approach the Bible by sincerely believing, and understanding, that it was supernaturally produced and preserved by God Himself. It was inspired or breathed out by the Lord who used holy men of old to record His words. While these men used their own languages and were influenced by their own cultures, the end product was the eternal, infallible, inerrant, and authoritative Word of Elohim, Abba Father. Without this recognition of the Bible as a supernatural book one will never learn to rightly interpret what God has said in it. The human writers of the Bible never wrote as though they were the authors of its 66 books. In every case the author identified God as the divine source of what he was writing. For example, Moses said that his words were "the words that the Lord commanded him" (Exodus 19:7). The author of the books of Kings said that, "the Lord testified against Israel, and against Judah by the prophets" (II Kings 17:13). The psalmist said that God showed his word to the nation of Israel (147:19). The prophets repeatedly prefaced their remarks by "Thus saith the Lord."
The evidence is overwhelming that our Lord, Yeshua HaMashiach, never questioned the authenticity of the Tanach, the Old Testament as the Word of God. He used the writings of the Tanach as the written authority for his response to Satan's attempts to tempt him. "It is written," He said, "Thou shalt not tempt the Lord thy God" (Matthew 4:7). In the synagogues He visited He read from the scriptures (Luke 4:16). When confronted by the jealous and hypocritical Pharisees he pointed them to the Tanach saying, "Have ye not read?" and "Have ye never read?" and "Did ye never read in the scriptures?" (Matthew 19:4; 21:16,42). Referring to the Tanach, the Old Testament, in a discussion about the resurrection of the dead, He said, "Have ye not read that which was spoken unto you by God" (Matthew 22:31)? He also encouraged others to read the Scriptures for themselves. "Search the scriptures," he said; "for in them ye think ye have eternal life: and they are they which testify of me" (John 5:39).
Throughout the Bible, the Word of God, the human writers described the Bible in words like these: book of the Lord; holy scriptures; the law of the Lord; the oracles of God; scriptures of truth; the sword of the Spirit; the word of God; the word of Messiah; the word of life; and word of truth. These are only a glance at all the internal evidence of the supernatural nature of the Bible. How you approach, and apply, this supernatural key of Biblical study will either enlighten you spiritually or blind you. Paul summed up the supernatural inspiration of the Bible when he wrote these words: "All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: that the man of God may be perfect, throughly furnished unto all good works" (II Timothy 3:16-17).
