Bible Term: Scripture

In general, scripture refers to any holy book or sacred text.

Specifically, the Bible is referred to as Scripture or the Holy Scripture.

Interestingly, the word scripture only occurs in the New Testament of the Bible and refers to the accepted religious texts of that day, what we now call the Old Testament.
