1. When reading the bible, be sure to recognize Gods ability to say more than one thing at a time. Definitions here show patterns in the dialogue, but they are only one layer of meaning in the Word of God.
2. This page was created to demonstrate how the entire record of Jesus is linked to at least one verse in the Old Testament:For simplicity, many links have been left out. Can you find others? Email me and lets talk about it :)
3. Its so beautiful to think that the Lord left Jesus clues as to what He was supposed to do, and that those same clues are there for us to know what to do too: The following verse is why I believe Jesus was prepared with parables and only teachings from the existing Word of God.
The words of the wise are like goads, and like nails firmly fixed are the collected sayings; they are given by sone Shepherd. My son, beware of anything beyond these words in scripture. Of making many books there is no end, and much study is a weariness of the flesh. The end of the matter; all has been heard. Fear God and keep his commandments, for this is the whole duty of man. For God will bring every deed into judgment, with every secret thing, whether good or evil.
An example of how His life was a Pattern spoken by God
As an example this covers every portion of Matthew 12 to 19
Your testimonies are wonderful; therefore my soul keeps them. The unfolding of your words gives light; it imparts understanding to the simple.. Keep steady my steps according to your promise, and let no iniquity get dominion over me.
