"The ‘authority of the Bible’, therefore, cannot be used as a weapon of arrogance and oppression without radically undermining the Bible itself (which, of course, has happened often enough in church history). This should not surprise us because actually the biblical doctrine of authority runs like this: all authority comes from God, and is given to Jesus (Matthew 28:18). If ‘the authority of the Bible’ means anything, it must relate closely to Jesus’ authority, which was fully expressed on the cross."
