1st Corinthians 10:11 says: "Now all these things happened unto them for ensamples: and they are written for our admonition, upon whom the ends of the world are come." and Romans 15:4 says: "For whatsoever things were written aforetime were written for our learning, that we through patience and comfort of the scriptures might have hope." The writer of both Scriptures, of course, was Paul, and his subject was the disobedient Jews or disobedient and rebellious Israel. Now, if whatever was written was written as example, admonition, and learning tool of all mankind, wouldn't the Holy Spirit, whom we all profess to believe to be the true author of Scripture, say so ? I have read the Bible cover to cover, fast and slowly, and have yet to see a specific Scripture that says the Bible and the Word of God was written for the salvation, learning, and benefit of all mankind. Does anybody have such a Scripture ? I may have missed it.
