The important thing: Not WHAT you know but WHO
Job 16-18 / John 19-21

How to get the most out of Hungry Bible


16:7-8 “O God, you have ground me down and devastated my family. You have reduced me to skin and bones–as proof, they say, of my sins.”


19:8-11 When Pilate heard this, he was more frightened than ever. He took Jesus back into the headquarters again and asked him, “Where are you from?” But Jesus gave no answer. “You won’t talk to me?” Pilate demanded. “Don’t you realize that I have the power to release you or to crucify you?” Then Jesus said, “You would have no power over me at all unless it were given to you from above. So the one who brought me to you has the greater sin.

OT Flash Points

If God doesn’t tell you what He’s doing, it would not be wise to try to figure it out
Wait, trust and listen

NT Flash Points

Remember, through failures and personality faults, Jesus knows what He made you to be and that is eternal
The responsibility now is not to figure out what God is doing, but to look to Him and believe


The way to know:
Spiritual understanding comes through obedience, not through study and articulation
The Spirit does not serve the intellect, intellect must serve the Spirit
Self-vindication is a barricade to actual knowledge and must go
