Gerry Breshears :: Are the Psalms really God’s Word or just David’s prayers?

  • It might seem odd that we consider David’s songs and prayers of anguish, joy and frustration to be the word of God, but throughout church history they have been accepted as canonical scripture, even in the New Testament church. In Acts 1:20, Peter quotes Psalm 69:25 and 109:8 as scripture. “The definition for inspiration: God providentially prepares and guides human beings to write, in their own circumstances, their own styles, their own personalities, the things that God would say to his church,” according to Dr. Gerry Breshears, Author and Professor of Theology at Western Seminary.
