... Q. 9. How is the divinity of Holy Scripture shown?

A. (1) From its holy and exalted content, (2) from the piety of its authors (2 Peter 1:21), (3) from its mysteries; (4) from the fulfilment of prophecies; (5) from its powerful effect on the hearts of the unconverted (Jer. 23:29) and the converted (Ps. 119:92); and (6) from the miracles through which it is confirmed.

Q. 10. How is a Christian convinced of the divinity and authority of Holy Scripture?
