The Holy Spirit revealed just what He wanted to reveal

2 Corinthians Bible Background

09.09.2017 – New Testament: 2Co 1.13–14

To read the Bible in a year, read Second Corinthians 1 on September 9, In the year of our Lord 2017

Has the Spirit left out of the Bible information that we must have? Did He include everything? Paul told the Corinthian Christians,

For we are not writing any other things to you than what you read or understand. Now I trust you will understand, even to the end (as also you have understood us in part), that we are your boast as you also are ours, in the day of the Lord Jesus (2 Corinthians 1.13–14). 

What you read in the Bible is what you get. Seek to understand it, for the Lord will not reveal any more. It was that information that converted the Corinthians, and so the Corinthians could boast that they had heard the truth in Paul and Paul could boast that they had obeyed only what the Lord Jesus so desired for them to know.

Questions:

  • Is the Bible enough knowledge for you?
  • If not, what else could the Spirit possibly reveal to satisfy your knowledge?
