Nothing is more important than knowing the Son of God.

The men who wrote the documents that comprise the New Testament were writing to each other.  That is, it was Christ-followers writing to Christ-followers.  They were not writing to outsiders, and they were certainly not writing to us.  Their writings can do us an immeasurable amount of good – but only if we recognize that they were not writing to us.

Moreover, their writings were not their work.  Rather, their writings were incidental to their work.  That doesn’t make them less valuable – it makes them all the more valuable.
