Provocative title. Yes. And of course we discover so much about Jesus through the primary source of the Bible.
Yes these words of Jesus provoke something in me.
“You search the Scriptures because you think they give you eternal life. But the Scriptures point to me! 40 Yet you refuse to come to me to receive this life…..”John 5.39
How much study do we do compared to how much time we spend just praying, listening, hearing, meditating.
How much scripture do we exegete before sitting down and thinking about how the Holy Spirit wishes to transform our lives, and the community around us. It is safe to study. It is safe to know the construct of the Greek words. It is not safe to be born along as the Spirit leads.
Seems to me there is a holy war going on at the moment. Some are worshipping at the idol of knowledge and attacking those seeking to know Him.
