Do Quakers believe in Jesus or the Bible?
Quakers enjoy questions, or ‘queries’ as they are often called, as they give people a chance to dialogue with each other. A good query here is: “What do you mean by believe?”
Some Quakers would consider that Jesus was a supremely inspired teacher whose words moved others to work for peace and justice. Others believe he is the Son of God. George Fox referred to ‘Christ Jesus’, and that ordering reminds Quakers of his great message.
Many Quakers are familiar with the Bible and refer to its teachings and stories for inspiration, comfort and help.
