God Spoke, Men Wrote, We Read
No longer a mystery (Ep.3:4) Jn.2:5 Jn.7:17 God (revealed) Paul (wrote) Reader (hearer) 2 Pt.3:16Ac.2:37
I. Attitude: How to regard what God says
Lv.10:1-3, God will be glorified No partiality (Ro.15:4) By fire they sin; by fire they die God governs worship (Mt.15:9; Jn.4:24) A little sin? Profanewhich He had not commanded themProfane fire = which He had not commanded them (w/o His authority)
Dt.4:2, respect. Handle with care You shall not add to the word which I command you, nor take from it, that you may keep the commandments of the LORD your God which I command you
Mt.28:18-20, four alls 18 And Jesus came and spoke to them, saying, All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth. 19 Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20 teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age Universal jurisdiction Worldwide scope Total commitment Permanent validity
Gal.1:6-9, there are consequences 8 But even if we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel to you than what we have preached to you, let him be accursed 9 As we have said before, so now I say again, if anyone preaches any other gospel to you than what you have received, let him be accursed.
Col.3:17, in the Name And whatever you do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through Him. In the name means, accordingly, in vital relation with him, that is, in harmony with his revealed will, in subjection to his authority, in dependence on his power
2 Jn.9, out of bounds Anyone who progresses beyond teaching of Christ walks w/o God Doctrine of Christ Have not God
I.Attitude: How to regard what God says II. Bible: How does it teach us?
The Bible teaches the same way any document teaches A recipe does not have to list ingredients that should not be used Thus it is argued that the ancient maxim to be applied is that the expression of one thing is the exclusion of another – Contracts: Transactions And Litigation
Silence does not give consent It is impossible to construe the deed of 1899 from the Pocono Spring Water Ice Co. to Frank C. Miller as conveying…any privi- lege of bathing. It is clear and unambig- uous. It gives Frank C. Miller the exclusive right to fish and boat; the expression of one thing is the exclusion of another. No bathing rights are mentioned. This omission may have been the result of oversight, or it may have been deliberate, but in either event, the result is the same – Property, Dukemanier et al., p. 711
A note from mom To the manager of the grocery store: I have sent my son to purchase your smallest box of Tide detergent. Please see that he leaves the store with the correct change – Mrs. Smith May manager add cool-aid? Does design on box change it?
What about 1 Co.2:14? W/o direct influence of HS (enlightenment), we cannot grasp message of gospel FoolishnessFoolishness to him foolishness Problem not mental grasp, but foolishness If he cannot understand, why try to teach? 1 Co.3:19 God cannot grasp worlds wisdom?? 1 Co.3:19 God cannot grasp worlds wisdom?? 1 Co.1:20 Significance of worlds wisdom 1 Co.1:20 Significance of worlds wisdom
I. Attitude: How to regard what God says III. Conduct: What does God want us to do? II. Bible: How does it teach us?
The principle illustrated Lv.14:15-16 Lv.14:26-27 (Dt.24:8, be careful) NT: not pour, sprinkle, or pick one PourDipSprinkle
1 Chr.13 Num.4:15 Command / Prohibition Command / Prohibition Example = Example = entire Pentateuch! Necessary implication Necessary implication (7:7-9) Did not mention Davids name years before Aristotle
Num.4-7 do not say: only 1. Sons of Kohath only Kohath excludes everyone else only 2. Shoulder carrying only... or 3. Shoulder excludes other ways 1 Chr.15:2, Davids conclusion 1 Chr.15:5, sons of Kohath
1 Chr.15:13 because you did not do it the first time (NKJV) because you did not carry it the first time (ESV) [Wrong people] …we did not con- sult Him about the proper order (NKJV) …according to the ordinance (NASB); … to the rule (ESV) [Wrong practice]
Acts 10 Ac.10:19, thought about... 28, shown... 34, perceive Ac.10:47-48, Peter already knew about baptism for forgiveness (2:38) Now...forgiveness of Gentiles (2:39) He correctly inferred what God implied, then bound it on others (48)
Phil.4:9, a command to follow examples These do (command) saw in me (example) commandexamples A command to practice examples
