Old and New Testament - 27

GOD IS REPRESENTED BY HIS WORDS (John 1:1)

The Spirit God spoke in order to relate to His chosen people.
These spoken words were relayed to the prophets and apostles,
which they wrote and is now compiled in a book called the
Holy Bible. God teaches us how to read the Holy Bible:

Isaiah 28:10 (KJV) "For precept must be upon precept,
precept upon precept; line upon line, line upon line; here a
little, and there a little:"

A topic should be set, and this is explained by "LINE UPON LINE,
HERE A LITTLE AND THERE A LITTLE." With God’s design and from
His direction, we get the great spiritual message of His words.

HUMAN INNOVATION IN THE WORDS OF GOD :

Man, however, improved the words of God by providing the following:

* The Bible was divided into CHAPTERS by Stephen Langton about 1228 A.D.

* The Old Testament was divided into VERSES by R. Nathan in 1448 A.D.,
several decades before Columbus discovered America.

* The New Testament was divided into VERSES by Robert Stephanus in 1551 A.D.

* The entire Bible, divided into chapters and verses, first appeared in 1560
A.D. in the Geneva Bible. This was at the height of the Inquisition period.

We cannot therefore rely on the CHAPTERS and VERSES to get the required
message for these are but the brainchild of men. To do so, the reader will
end up taking the CONTEXT of the story, resulting in the loss of the great
spiritual message of the word. Only God is the authority to direct us in
reading the Holy Bible . Human intelligence cannot supersede divine
wisdom .
