In trying to understand the nature of Scripture, it is worthwhile and even necessary to examine how the Lord Jesus views the Sacred Writings. If we know how He sees Scripture, it will help us to know how we should see them as well.  “How Jesus Viewed Scripture” is the announced topic of Phil Sanders’ lesson in next week’s program.  The broadcast can be seen locally every Sunday on WTRF-TV, Ch. 7, at 7:30 a.m.
