Article 73 - Incidentals...


Incidental Comments Found in the Bible 

Jon Gary Williams

In discussing the inspiration of the Bible, seldom is mention made about incidental (supplemental) comments found in the scriptures - - comments that would not have likely been included, had men been seeking to pawn off man-made writings as inspired.

Years ago when preparing a study on the inspiration of the New Testament, I compiled a list of such comments from the historical narratives of the gospels, from Acts and a few from the epistles. No doubt, this list is not all-inclusive.
