From Simon Ponsonby’s morning talk at New Wine today.
When the Saducees tried to catch Jesus out, His response was telling:
“…have you not read what God said to you…?” Mat 22:31
Jesus has read it, that’s why he was able to quote 24 books of the OT during his ministry [says Simon P, I’ve not checked!]
The devil’s read it, that’s why opponents of Christ from ancient Rome to ISIS are so keen to ban it.
But what about you? “To drop the Bible is to lose the plot”, says Simon, to coin a phrase.
