Scrip


A small bag or wallet usually fastened to the girdle (1 Sam. "17:40); "a shepherd's bag." "In the New Testament it is the rendering of Gr. pera, which was "a bag carried by travellers and shepherds, generally made of" "skin (Matt. 10:10; Mark 6:8; Luke 9:3; 10:4). The name "scrip" "is meant to denote that the bag was intended to hold scraps," "fragments, as if scraped off from larger articles, trifles."

Invariably in the New Testament denotes that definite collection "of sacred books, regarded as given by inspiration of God, which" "we usually call the Old Testament (2 Tim. 3:15, 16; John 20:9;" Gal. 3:22; 2 Pet. 1:20). It was God's purpose thus to perpetuate his revealed will. From time to time he raised up men to commit to writing in an infallible record the revelation he gave. The "Scripture, or collection of sacred writings, was thus enlarged" from time to time as God saw necessary. We have now a completed "Scripture, consisting of the Old and New Testaments. The Old" Testament canon in the time of our Lord was precisely the same as that which we now possess under that name. He placed the seal "of his own authority on this collection of writings, as all" equally given by inspiration (Matt. 5:17; 7:12; 22:40; Luke "16:29, 31). (See [556]BIBLE; [557]CANON.)"
