    THE one thing most needed is the study of the Bible.MEDM March 11, 1908, page 212.1

    The study of a verse here and there in the Bible, is not the study of the Bible.MEDM March 11, 1908, page 212.2

    The study of subjects in the Bible, even though there be many subjects and much study of them, is not the study of the Bible.MEDM March 11, 1908, page 212.3

    A person may be able to quote many texts of Scripture on many subjects in the Bible, and yet be sadly lacking in real knowledge of the Bible.MEDM March 11, 1908, page 212.4

    Verses here and there, even many of them together,—this is not the Bible. Subjects, even many of them, traced by the concordance from beginning to end of the Bible—this is not the Bible.MEDM March 11, 1908, page 212.5

    The Bible was not written in subjects nor verses, but in thoughts—the thoughts of God.MEDM March 11, 1908, page 212.6

    The Bible is the Word of God, and words express thoughts. The Bible, therefore, as the word of God, is the expression of the thought of God. There are thoughts of God expressed in single words. There are thoughts expressed in single verses. There are thoughts expressed only in whole chapters. There are thoughts expressed only in whole books. And there are thoughts expressed only in the whole Bible together. And true Bible study is to find, to receive and to dwell upon thoughts of God expressed in single verses, expressed in several verses, expressed only in whole chapters, expressed only in whole books, and expressed only in the whole Bible together.MEDM March 11, 1908, page 212.7

    Therefore, we are not saying that there should never be any study of single verses, nor of passages, nor of subjects, in the Bible. We are only saying that even when verses and passages and subjects in the Bible have been studied, the Bible has not yet been studied. It takes all that is in the Bible to be really the Bible. And plainly a person has not thoroughly studied the Bible till he has studied everything that is in the Bible—everything that goes to make up the Bible. And in order to study everything in the Bible, it is plain that it is necessary to go through the Bible, and through the Bible, and through the Bible—always be going through the Bible, until you know the Bible.MEDM March 11, 1908, page 212.8
