sacred and authoritative in all of the largest and many smaller religion traditions. It is primarily
efeed to as a saed ook. What is incorporated in scripture is; ritual books, legal maxims
and codes, myths and legends, historical accounts, divine revelations, apocalyptic visions,
ecstatic poetry, words of teachers and prophets, and hymns or prayers to a deity.
2. What scripture looks like as a heael ook o a saed ook is if it is eig lassified as a

primarily in the ancient Near Eastern and Greco-Roman worlds and in subsequent Jewish,
Chistia, ad Islai taditios. While a saed ook is the uitessetial ook eligios ae

3. The “eati oots of the od siptue is the most basic meaning of scripture, as of its Indo-
Euopea ogates, is itig soethig itte. It is deied fo the Lati scriptura a

Hellenistic usage to the postexilic Hebrew of ketav as a term of writing: a letter, inscription,
written decree, or a holy writing. In Greek, grammata hat is itte; itig, used
generally for literature or documents.
4. The key roles for scripture is one of the overt ways in which the importance of the written text is
evident is in the religious valuation of the act of copying and embellishing a sacred text.
Scripture can be used as a spoken word. Scriptures importance rests ultimately on the perceived
importance of the sacred word that the memorized or written text seeks to fix forever. Scripture
is also a public ritual there are some stances a scripture is explicitly a ritual text that orders and
explains the rite itself. Scripture is in devotional and spiritual life. Closely tied to public ritual,
and equally or more important to religious life, is the role of scripture in personal devotion and
in mystical, ascetic, and other traditions of spiritual discipline and realization. There is lastly,
magical and superstitious use of scripture. The answer to a problem or guidance for any
occasion is often sought through scripture divination.
5. Wh it is ipotat to ea i id the oal ole of siptue fo oth a histoial ad

6. Two attributes of scripture is in power both the written and the spoken word carry a seemingly
innate power in human perception. Its unique, transformative power often rests upon its being
spoken (or written) by a god. The power inherent in the spoken word is vividly seen in the idea
of a divine, creative word. The power of the spoken word of scripture also appears in a variety of
other religious contexts, most prominently in worship. The power of the written world has
already been touched upon. A second attribute is unicity. A further quality of scripture is its
perceived unicity of source, content, and authority in the community involved with it. No matter
what the historical origins or textual development of its constituent parts, and no matter how
diverse those parts, a scriptural corpus is commonly conceived of as unified whole, both in its
ontological origin as sacred word and its internal consistency and authoritative as sacred truth.
