Summary

In Matthew 24:35: Jesus says: “Heaven and earth will pass away, but My words will not pass away.” (ESV) We live in a day where the Word of God is sorely maligned. Some reject it outright. Some give mental assent to it but refuse to abide by it. Some try to subdivide it, saying that God’s OT Words differ from His NT Words. Others say it’s merely allegorical or clever poetry which allows us to pick and choose what we like and don’t like. And then there are some who lovingly embrace it as truth with all their hearts. Did you know that Jesus affirmed the Scriptures over and over and over again? How many times in responding to the Pharisees and others did He preface His response to their leading questions and word-traps by saying: “Have you not read…” or “It is written…” Even when tempted by Satan, Jesus used the Word of God to thoroughly rebuke the devil’s deceitful words. With respect to God’s Word, did Jesus lie to us? Was He deceived? Or did He tell the truth? If He didn’t tell the truth, He was a dishonest sinner! If He was deceived, we’re still totally lost; if He told the truth we should believe and hang upon every precious word He spoke! Therefore, our best choice is pretty obvious…
