In The Doctrine of the Knowledge of God, I am reading about the uses of Scripture. In this discussion, Frame begins by talking about the varieties of biblical language; what makes Scripture authoritative? Is it the propositions which provide the authority? He points out that Scripture contains many forms of language other than propositions, such as command, question, exclamation, promise, vow, threat, and curse. He says this:
All of Scripture is propositional in that it seeks to convey to us the truth of God. But all Scripture is also command; it aims to change our behavior in every aspect of life. And all of Scripture is question, promise, and exclamation (shout of joy).
I really like how Frame exposes the many nuances of Scripture. I like that: "All Scripture is question, promise, and exclamation."
