It Is Written

Open Bible pic-wide

 

Very little is known about Jesus before He walked on the stage of history at His baptism. We do see Him as a 12-year-old astonishing the religious leaders in the temple. We can infer from that incident that Jesus was very knowledgeable of the scriptures. Jesus gave scripture a high place in His life. He often referred to events in scripture as He taught the people. The words which were already written at the time of His birth He considered the words of God. Jesus used this scripture as His main weapon when tempted by the devil.

Jesus said unto him [devil], It is written again, Thou shalt not tempt the Lord thy God” (Matthew 4:7). Here Jesus referred to the written scripture. We are blessed because we have more scripture to understand the New Covenant of Grace. As Jesus is our example, we can refer to the written scripture quoting the truth of God’s inspired word. As Jesus used the Word, so we should as well. The Word is Life.
