Edward J. ”9 THE WHOLE OLD TESTAMENT IS A “PROPHETIC UTTERANCE” The prophets were the voice of God not only in what they said but in what they wrote as well. Moses was commanded, “Write down these words” (Ex. 34:27). The Lord ordered Jeremiah to “take again another scroll and write on it all the former words that were on the first scroll” (Jer. 36:28). Isaiah testified that the Lord said to him: “Take for yourself a large tablet and write on it” (Isa. 8:). And again God told him: “Go, write it on a tablet before them and inscribe it on a scroll, that it may serve in the time to come as a witness forever” (Isa.
10. Paul repeatedly used the word Scripture(s) to refer to the entire authoritative canon of the Old Testament. In Romans he wrote that God had promised the gospel “through His prophets in the holy Scriptures” (Rom. 1:2). , 4:3; 9:17; 10:11; 11:12). In Romans 15:4 Paul says that whatever was written in former days in the Scriptures was for the believer’s admonition. He also spoke of “the Scriptures of the prophets” (16:26). In his other epistles the apostle Paul said that Christ had died and arisen “according to the Scriptures” (1 Cor.
22:18). Not only was a prophet one who felt the constraint to relate faithfully the command of the Lord, but he was indeed the very mouthpiece of God to men. The Lord said to Moses, “See, I make you as God to Pharaoh, and your brother Aaron shall be your prophet” (Ex. 7:1). In accordance with that, Aaron spoke “all the words which the Lord had spoken to Moses” (4:30). 56‐57. shall not add to the word which I am commanding you, nor take away from it” (Deut. 4:2). Micaiah the prophet confirmed the same: “As the Lord lives, what the Lord says to me, that I will speak” (1 Kings 22:14).
