JESUS: The Great I Am



The Bible does not explicitly state what Jesus or his disciples did on the Wednesday prior to the crucifixion. Scholars agree that even though nothing is explicitly stated, some activities were taking place. For example, it is assumed that the disciples were preparing for the last supper that would take place the next day. It is also assumed that the Jewish religious leaders were plotting against Jesus on this day.

What the Bible Does Not Say
The Bible is not a book of easy prescriptions for every life situation. The meaning of the Bible has not changed and will not change. However, the principles and godly wisdom provided through God’s Word is alive and applicable to every day of our lives, to every situation we encounter, to every decision we make and to every person we come in contact with.

There are three critical passages we need to be aware of in regards to what the Bible does not say.

The Word of God is Alive!
Hebrews 4:12 “For the word of God is living and active, sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing to the division of soul and of spirit, of joints and of marrow, and discerning the thoughts and intentions of the heart.”

Enough for Every Good Work!
2 Timothy 3:16-17 “All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, equipped for every good work.”

Handle With Care!
Revelation 22:18-19 “I warn everyone who hears the words of the prophecy of this book: if anyone adds to them, God will add to him the plagues described in this book, and if anyone takes away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God will take away his share in the tree of life and in the holy city, which are described in this book.”
