The case is vast, and, quite literally, fills volumes. I'm currently reading New Testament People God Volume 1: Christian Origins And The Question Of God, for example, which addresses this topic at length.

The belief that the scriptures are without error or fault in all its teaching can be traced to the early Christians, and further. 1 Thessalonians 2:13 For this reason we also thank God without ceasing, because when you received the word of God which you heard from us, you welcomed it not as the word of men, but as it is in truth, the word of God, ...

Reading the new testament texts within a systematic eschatology, readers could conceivably equate the 'antichrist' of the Johannine epistles with either of the beasts from the Revelation, or the 'man of lawlessness' from Paul, but this is purely reader inference; such connections are not made explicit within these individual texts (e.g. the author of 1 John ...

St. Victorinus, an ecclesiastical writer and a Church Father who flourished about 270, and who suffered martyrdom probably in 303 under Diocletian, in his Commentary on the Apocalypse, identifies the Antichrist with one of the seven heads of the red dragon [cf.

Are you only after historical references of the exact phrasing? As you mentioned clearly from the scriptures implicitly proclaim the reality of a personal and relational God, though those exact words are not uttered.

The way it was explained to me once is that it was a literal interpretation of Christ's commission to take up the cross and follow him. "Then said Jesus unto his disciples, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me." (Matt 16:24; see also Mark 8:34; Luke 9:23; Matt 10:21;) The Encyclopedia ...

[Genesis 18:20-26 NKJV] 20 And the LORD said, "Because the outcry against Sodom and Gomorrah is great, and because their sin is very grave, 21 "I will go down now and see whether they ...
