Daily Bible Nugget #206, Acts 13:27

The Nugget:

Acts 13:27 For they that dwell at Jerusalem, and their rulers, because they knew him not, nor yet the voices of the prophets which are read every sabbath day, they have fulfilled them in condemning him.

My Comment:

Ignorance of the Scriptures is a major source of error. The Jewish people in the time of Christ heard the Scriptures read every Sabbath day. Yet they did not know the Scriptures. At least the influential leaders did not know them. Nor did many of the common people, for they raised their voices against Jesus when Pilate found no fault in Him and was determined to let Him go. It was the crowd, no doubt spurred on by Pharisees planted among them, that shouted “Crucify him.” Jesus had told them, “For had ye believed Moses, ye would have believed me, for he wrote of me” (John 5:46). By their own ignorance of Scripture, the Jews acted in a manner that actually fulfilled them. They condemned Christ for blasphemy. The Jewish people were looking forward to the coming Messiah, but when He came, they failed to recognize Him. The trap they fell into is a snare yet today: we might not recognize the truth when we see it because the truth runs counter to our expectations. In spiritual matters, we can readily be mistaken when we do not know the Scriptures. The truth God wants us to know is in the Scriptures, but if we don’t read and study them, that truth remains hidden for us. We can miss the best that God has for us when we do not take the time to read and study the Bible for ourselves.
