In 2 Tim. 3:16, it seems to me that God-breathed and profitable are two
parallel predicate adjectives. Thus, they describe the quality of
Scripture, telling what kind of writing it is. In this context, it is
sort of like saying all Scripture is blessed of God or has God's stamp of
approval. This passage speaks as much of preservation as it does
inspiration. What think ye?
