Today’s reading John 19-21
John 20:30 And many other signs truly did Jesus in the presence of his disciples, which are not written in this book:
Jesus did so many more things than we find recorded in the Scriptures? The obvious question is why?
First He did so much that it would fill the world with books. He was after all God at work on earth.
But the greatest reason is that the Holy Spirit by means of His disciples wants to tell a story that accomplishes a purpose. The Bible was written and the stories chosen so that we would be able to know Jesus, His character, His heart, and the plan of salvation.
God gave us enough to see our sinful condition and the wonderful purity and divinity of the Lord Jesus. The Bible is no simple collection of stories but a book well composed with a great purpose.
Tell people that they can be saved that Jesus did it all. He lived a sinless life, died and undeserving death, pay a debt He didn’t owe, was buried and rose again.
Even now He sits at the right hand of the Father as our advocate.
The Bible is book written to tell us the story of Jesus and the love of the Father.
