What is Biblical Inerrancy?

What does it mean to say that the Bible is without error? This can be a pretty confusing topic. Here is a helpful definition of biblical inerrancy: “The Bible (in its original writings) properly interpreted in light of which culture and communication means had developed by the time of its composition will be completely true (and therefore not false) in all that affirms, to the degree of precision intended by the author, in all matters relating to God and His creation.” [from David S. Dockery, Christian Scripture: An Evangelical Perspective on Inspiration, Authority, and Interpretation (Nashville, TN: Broadman & Holman, 1995), 64.]

Wallace also talks about this in his interview in The Case for the Real Jesus by Lee Strobel.

“All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, so that the man of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work.”—2 Timothy 3:16-17
