WHERE DO YOU GET YOUR TRUTH?

May 12

Jesus on the road to Emmaus gave these privileged disciples a short course on finding Christ in the Old Testament. Can you imagine being a part of what they heard?  Every part of Scripture points to Jesus, from the beginning to the end.  He may have explained to them the parts where it said He had to suffer and die in order that salvation could be accomplished. We don’t know, but we know that their hearts were burning within them from the things that He told them. Christ here gives us a pattern which is to be followed by all who teach the word.  He took passages and explained them to those He was with.  That is Biblical Exposition or what we call Expository Preaching/Teaching. It is taking the scriptures word by word, verse by verse and explaining the meaning and context of each passage within each chapter contained in each book which make up context of the whole Bible. Those who skip over verses, words, or passages are cheating us of all that we should learn.  It is not about how much you go through, but how much goes into you and I. If you can’t find a church like this go online to our messages or some others who try to do that type of teaching.  If you want some good resources, I have some good ones listed below.

Then beginning with Moses and with all the prophets, He explained to them the things concerning Himself in all the Scriptures. (Luke 24:27, 32 And they said to one another, “Did not our heart burn within us while He talked with us on the road, and while He opened the Scriptures to us?”)

Where do you get your truth? The internet is often used but there are probably more bad than good sources to help us understand the Scriptures. You might want to read Howard Hendrick’s Book, Living by the Book which will help you to get more out of your time in the Word. 2 Timothy 2:15 Be diligent to present yourself approved to God, a worker who does not need to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.
