Quote of the Week: John 5:39, note 1

John 5:39—“You search the Scriptures, because you think that in them you have eternal life; and it is these that testify concerning Me.”

Note 1 on search the Scriptures: “To ‘search the Scriptures’ may be separated from ‘come to Me’ (v. 40). The Jewish religionists searched the Scriptures but were not willing to come to the Lord. These two should go together; because the Scriptures

testify concerning the Lord, they should not be separated from the Lord. We may contact the Scriptures, yet not contact the Lord. Only the Lord can give life.”
