    What touched my heart is that Jesus is the one who came to the lame man the lame man did not come to Jesus. Praise God that Jesus came not just 2000 years ago and not just to the lame man but he still comes

    Insight777Circumicised;John 5: 5-6 Here a man was chronically ill, Jesus said to him"wilt thou be made whole?" He healed him on the Sabbath day. The Jews did not like it when Jesus healed people on the Sabbath day. Now let's continue to John 7.

    In verse 23, Jesus gave the kernel of what He desires of Christians: That all men should honour the Son, even as they honour the Father.

    This is such a good Bible site. I just went to 'more', then 'various Bible topics', then clicked on 's', scrolled to 'studying the word', and up came no less than 17 vs. on STUDYING His Word.

  • Irene123
    As far as not needing to read the Bible for salvation - then why did Jesus give us Jn.5:39 (His own words); Acts17:11; Col.1:10. During His earthly ministry that's ALL He did - was quote scripture (no, what He said wasn't ALL written down yet, but - He knew it would be; Jesus was omniscient - all knowing) As it came from His mouth it was - scripture..
