Mistakes in Reading The Bible

How To Completely Misuse The Bible In 5 Easy Steps

In the book of John, Jesus tells the religious leaders that although they know scripture cold, they’ve missed the most important aspect– that all scripture points to him! Also, early in his ministry he tells a parable of a wise and foolish man who are both building a house. The wise man, who is centered on the teachings of Jesus, is compared to a man who chose stone as a foundation while the foolish man (who neglected the teachings of Jesus) is compared to someone who built their house on sand. Finally, in the last hours of his life, Jesus reminded his disciples that he “was the way, the truth, and the life”. According to Jesus, this thing we’re doing– and the book we read– is all about him.

 

Some really great thoughts in here, and the quote above further drives the point I wanted to make when I wrote my post on Logos, Rhema, and Graphe. Reading the Bible should always point back to Jesus.
