Search the Scriptures

“You can know a thing to death and be for all purposes completely ignorant of it.” – from Gilead by Marilynne Robinson

This is exactly how I feel sometimes about the scriptures. I think many of us do.

For now we see in a mirror, dimly, but then face to face. Now I know in part, but then I shall know just as I also am known. – I Corinthians 13:12

The thing is, we can never fully understand it. But we should never give up trying.

“…they received the word with all readiness, and searched the Scriptures daily to find out whether these things were so.” – Acts 17:11
