The Reverence Of The Scribe

Friday, January 30, 2015

The Bible has come down to us so accurately because of the hand of God and through the hands of many Jewish scribes. Generation after generation of Jewish scribes meticulously copied the Word, every jot, every tittle. If they make one mistake, the whole scroll is deemed unkosher and they have to start all over again. Before they write the name of God on the scroll, they will bathe themselves. See the reverence they had and held for the Word and the name of God. We have the fullness of the New Covenant in Messiah and we have the fullness of the revelation. It's amazing how often we treat the Word carelessly. We don't really follow it or we take it lightly or we take it for granted. We have gotten used to the fact that we have it and we don't really treasure it. We may have five Bibles and we don't read them. Treat the Word at least as reverently as the scribes of Israel, as something holy and a sacred treasure in your life. See, the Word is a treasure, but it only gives life to those who treasure it.
