Just a thought that I began pondering as I was reading Scripture this morning. In Matthew 28.19-20 Jesus says: Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, to the close of the age. Matt. 28.19-20, RSV However, in John 20.30 and 21.25 John tells us: Now Jesus did many other signs in the presence of the disciples, which are not written in this book. John 20.30, RSV But there are also many other things which Jesus did; were every one of them to be written, I suppose that the world itself could not contain the books that would be written. John 21.25, RSV Now I know that in Matthew Jesus is talking about his teachings and in John it is talking about signs and things that Christ did, but I can't help but wonder, do we have "all" that Jesus taught written down in the Bible? I am not saying it is defective or it does not work, but by Jesus' command the disciples were told to teach others to observe all that Jesus had commanded them. If many of his signs were left out, why is it not possible many of his teachings were left out? Do we have all that he commanded? Why do you believe so or not? In Christ, Neal P.S. This is not to undermine one's faith or discredit the Bible in any way. It is just somehting that made me go, "hmmmm...."
