If it's Not in the Bible...

Have you ever heard someone say, “If it’s not in the Bible, I won’t believe it!” While I understand the desire for truth expressed in that statement, we need to understand a much larger reality about Jesus who is the Word and the partial presentation of His life given to us in what we call Scripture. The Gospel of John offers some understanding on this subject, “Jesus also did many other things. If they were all written down, I suppose the whole world could not contain the books that would be written” (John 21:25).  Those unrecorded works of Jesus were no less “biblical” than what we read about Him in the Gospels and no less important than the works He is doing in your life and in the lives of millions of other people around the world. Bold sounding theological disclaimers like the one exampled in opening line in this paragraph carry the sound of integrity but lack understanding. Be careful with your words.
