Deuteronomy 3:1-29; Ecclesiastes 3:16-4:16; Luke 7:1-29

Keep that which is committed to thy trust, avoiding…oppositions of science falsely so called: Which some professing have erred concerning the faith. 1 Timothy 20-21

Believers should value scholarship in understanding the Bible. But don’t forget faith, for it is the persuasion that God is worth seeking and His Word is worth understanding. So use every resource to understand the original Bible languages. Delve into the technicals of Bible study. But wed your scholarship to faith. Scholarship alone won’t open the Word. There are too many amazing, startling, unexpected, shocking things there. Without faith the scholar’s learning is his weakness, routinely using learning to explain away the astounding message. —J. A. Bjorlie

Word of the ever living God, will of His glorious Son;
Without Thee how could earth be trod or heaven itself be won?—Barton
