II Timothy 3:15-17 reminds us:  (1) Youth are never too young even
from childhood to learn Bible and Jesus; (2) That the word Bible is not
in the Bible, the favorite words in the Bible for the Bible are
"scripture", "book" for one of the 66 books, plus the "word of the
for God the Father) in the OT and "word of the Lord (for the
Lord Jesus Christ) in the NT; and (3) just when we thought we knew
everything in the Bible, this research brings more insights on the
Bible and Jesus
for short; (4) the capability of the Bible is to make man, woman,
youth, or child wise all the way to salvation: (5) salvation is only
through a certain faith, "faith which IN Christ Jesus"; (6)
All Scripture
(alias 66 books of Scripture) are given by God as the Source of
inspiration; and (7)  All the Bible is profitable to children through men
{generic man which includes woman}, sort of like a guidebook for
living; (8) the Profitable benefits of the Bible is for "doctrine, for
reproof, for correction, and for instruction in
righteousness"; and (9)
the end goal of Bible learning is for perfection or maturity in order that
good works will come out of the Christian life at any age!

The favorite words of the Bible for Itself are:  scripture, scriptures,
“word of the LORD” in the OT, “word of the Lord” in the NT, “book”
for one of the 66, “volume of the book”, "prophesy", and  “All
Scripture”.   ALL is a good word for all 66 books of the Bible. and
certainly, one of the best words for holy scripture that was written
through over 40 men over at least seven thousand years, and before
that carried on also by the Holy Spirit of God through oral history.  
We marvel not only at the
consistent internal structure of the Bible
that bespeaks of the wisdom and power of God, primarily the very
character of God; but we also marvel at the survival and transmission
of the Bible throughout the world as it has survived the opposition of
enemies and the neglect of friends.  On Noah's ark, there was surely
as much oral history from God in the minds of the last 8 people on
earth as there were a complete representation of all the animals of the
earth.  And besides that, God had the means through the Spirit to
inspire men without previous oral history to write the mysterious of
what would never had been known except by revelations from God
Himself through Jesus and the Spirit.
II Peter 1:15-21

First The Apostle Peter reminds Christians IN CHRIST of the
version of the Bible as he wrote of "the power and coming of our Lord
Jesus Christ".
 1.  Apostles like Peter were eyewitnesses of Jesus majesty.
 2.  They heard the voice of God out of heaven saying, "This is my
beloved Son,in whom I am well pleased."
 3.  They heard this same voice of God on the holy mount, generally
called the mount of transfiguration.
 4.  Peter reminded mankind of a poor sure word of prophesy or
testimony, that of the testimony of scriptures to Jesus.

“Moreover I will endeavour that ye may be able after my decease
to have these things always in remembrance.  For we have not
followed cunningly devised fables, when we made known unto
you the power and coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, but were
eyewitnesses of his majesty.  For he received from God the
Father honour and glory, when there came such a voice to him
from the excellent glory,
This is my beloved Son, in whom I am
well pleased.  And this voice which came from heaven we heard,
when we were with him in the holy mount.  We have also a more
sure word of prophecy; whereunto ye do well that ye take heed,
as unto a light that shineth in a dark place, until the day dawn,
and the day star arise in your hearts:  
Knowing this first, that no
prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation.  For the
prophecy came not in old time by the will of man: but holy men of
God spake as they were moved by the Holy Ghost.” (II Peter 1:15-
IIf the ASPI is first reminder from Peter in II Peter 1:15-21, what is

Well, II Peter 2:1-3--

“But there were false prophets also among the people, even as
there shall be
false teachers among you, who privily shall bring in
damnable heresies, even denying the Lord that bought them, and
bring upon themselves swift destruction.  And many shall follow
their pernicious ways; by reason of whom the way of truth shall
be evil spoken of.  And through covetousness shall they with
feigned words make merchandise of you: whose judgment now
of a long time lingereth not, and their damnation slumbereth not.”  
(II Peter 2:1-3)
