Scriptures and Jesus

Jesus knew the scriptures very well.

In fact, Jesus quotes the scriptures from 24 different old testament books.

He quotes the scripture during his 40 day temptation.

He quotes the scripture even when he was on the cross (Psalms 22:1)

Jesus was a person who was filled with scriptures and knew when to use them and how to use them. It was kind of a GPS for his life with which he navigated through his life.

As a follower of Jesus, we need to follow his example of knowing and learning the scriptures.

If the word of God was important for Jesus, it is definitely important for us.

Here are some practical tips:

  • Read a small portion of the bible Daily.
  • Memorize a bible verse every week ..(at least you have 52 at the end of the year)
  • Use bible verse to pray.
  • Discuss a bible verse with your friends every week.
