“You study the scriptures diligently because you think that in them you have eternal life.” (John 5:39)
He told them that they actually point to him. But they couldn’t see that. He diagnosed them with bible blindness.
He didn’t always go around quoting scripture, although it was certainly embedded in what he was saying. Instead, he talked about food, flowers, birds, earth, wind and fire.
Are we so captivated by our knowledge of scripture and our theology that we cannot see the forest for the trees?
Do we have bible blindness?
