Ignorance of Scripture is Ignorance of Christ - Take the Gospel of John Challenge


Who do you say that Jesus is? Do your thoughts, upbringing, religious background, or personal beliefs about Jesus line up with God’s Christ of the HOLY SCRIPTURES? You might ask, “Well, does it make a difference? My friend, I say unto you, it surely does!


The Bible is the final AUTHORITY on who Jesus Christ is. It is God’s absolute instruction manual and blueprint for life. If you reject the authority of the Word of God, my friend, you are doomed. There is no hope for your lost, sinful condition. The Bible teaches that “All have sinned, and come short of the glory of God” (Romans 3:23). All! You need to know the True Savior, not a make-believe one. It’s that serious. Don’t let your deceitful heart and pride ruin you and keep you from God’s redemption found in Jesus Christ.

Ignorance of Scripture is Ignorance of Christ!

Jesus said, "Search the scriptures; for in them ye think ye have eternal life; and they are they which testify [speak] of me" (John 5:39).

The purpose of this Bible study is to bring a person through God’s simple plan of salvation using only the Gospel of John. When a Gospel of John is handed out to a person, it is a good idea to give the person this study along with it. The study was written in such a way (question/ answer format) that the person can see for themselves what the Bible really says about who Jesus Christ is, what He has done for us, and the necessity of putting our faith in Him.

For the person doing this study, please answer the following questions by looking up the Bible verses which are given, all of which can be found in the Gospel of John.

The Kingdom of Heaven is at hand!

RE: The Bible is the final AUTHORITY on who Jesus Christ is

Isn't that statement too limiting? Would it not be correct to say the Bible is the final AUTHORITY on every topic that God inspired the author's of scripture to write on?

I deal with Mormons regularly. If you asked a Mormon "who they say he is", an honest Mormon would answer:
He is spiritually the same as me
He is the brother of Lucifer
He is my resurrecter (not savior, as it is their works that determine their destiny after death).
He is rarely spoken of, despite having the name "Jesus Christ" in our title.

Unfortunately the Biblical Scholars have given us commentary on the OT and NT Scriptures without realizing that all of the books, letters and gospels had intentionally been written in a teaching literary form. Therefore much of what they have taught is wrong.

I have discovered within the original Greek texts of the Septuagint and New Testament what had remained hidden from Jews and Christians alike for almost two millennia; that for our benefit, all of the inspired writers of the OT and NT Scripture texts used an identical, teaching, literary form when they constructed their books, gospels, and letters.
The Scriptures are to be read and understood as parableStories written in the literary form of the parable!

A tutorial on this amazing literary form, which Biblical scholars should have recognized long ago, is given by the author within INPARABLES Volumes I-IV and at his blog
Michael Carrell,
