Secrets (biblical forensics)
Here are a few short verses on mysteries, and seekers:
Luke 17:26 (KJV) And as it was in the days of Noe, so shall it be also in the days of the Son of man.
Acts 7:22 (NIV) Moses was educated in all the wisdom of the Egyptians and was powerful in speech and action.
Acts 17:11 (ESV) Now these Jews were more noble than those in Thessalonica; they received the word with all eagerness, examining the Scriptures daily to see if these things were so.
Jeremiah 29:13 (KJV) You will seek me and find me, when you seek me with all your heart.
Luke 11:34 (ESV) Your eye is the lamp of your body. When your eye is healthy, your whole body is full of light, but when it is bad, your body is full of darkness.
Deuteronomy 29:29 (KJV) The secret things belong unto the LORD our God: but those things which are revealed belong unto us and to our children for ever, that we may do all the words of this law.
2 Timothy 3:16 (ESV) All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness,
These verses really do speak for themselves better than my commentary. Taken as a whole, we know that Scripture is our keystone to the mysteries, and God will fill our hearts with knowledge as we sincerely seek Him and the truth.
I use bold, and verses in color highlight because monotonous black text is boring, and can even be aesthetically painful (rather than pleasing), especially over computer light and web text. You can also use control (ctrl button) and + (plus key) to make your browser-text larger.
Here are two more compelling verses on mysteries, secrets, seekers, mystery-seeking, and the truth of God. Then I will have to find a new angle to this story from which to build upon the study guide.
Matthew 13:11-13 (KJV)
11 He answered and said unto them, Because it is given unto you to know the mysteries of the kingdom of heaven, but to them it is not given.
12 For whosoever hath, to him shall be given, and he shall have more abundance: but whosoever hath not, from him shall be taken away even that he hath.
13 Therefore speak I to them in parables: because they seeing see not; and hearing they hear not, neither do they understand.
John 21:25 25 (KJV) And there are also many other things which Jesus did, the which, if they should be written every one, I suppose that even the world itself could not contain the books that should be written. Amen.
