To Know And Know Not

Jesus replied, “You are in error because you do not know the Scriptures or the power of God” Matt. 22:29

To know the scriptures is to know them intimately. The way a husband knows his wife.

To know the scriptures is to study, observe and pore over them; taking them in context and weaving them together a little at a time until a larger picture begins to emerge, until it grows still larger. In this way we begin to see how the Scriptures weave themselves together, their meaning from Genesis to Revelation.

To know the scriptures isn’t just memorizing words therein. A text without context is a pretext.

Retired and On sabbatical (again, but not quite). More info available in 'About Me' on my site page.(There is a small square box with three little dots inside, on the upper right hand side of every blog page,at the right side of title banner. Click on those dots to take you to a "hidden" site page with more info provided by me, including "follow" button and "About me." I didn't design this thing.It came as-is.)Also WP has a mandatory banner at the bottom of the screen about privacy and cookies policy that blocks the visibility of a "follow" button that pops up under a "close and accept' of the privacy agreement. You have to click the 'close and accept to see the follow button. Things are becoming more complicated to navigation with hidden activations and complex instructions. Life and technology is like that. If something seems simple you're probably doing it wrong. But I'm left-handed so maybe it's just me.
