Searching the Scriptures for the Inherent Testimony

“Jesus said, Search the scriptures; for in them ye think ye have eternal life: and they are they which testify of me– John 5:39. Jesus was referring here to the Old Testament Scriptures since when he spoke these words, the Gospels and the New Testament were not yet written. The words ye think ye have eternal life were not written to suggest any kind of doubt; on the contrary, think means that the Scriptures reveal Christ to our minds, deep down in our thinking processes. When we think about and contemplate on the Scriptures, we begin receiving true understanding, and believing in God’s Word functions and is accomplished as we bring our biblical thoughts up to the level of recognizing that Christ is revealed to us in the Scriptures.” ~LMJ~
