We’re told that if we want to know God we should read our Bible. But how did those He used to write the Bible know Him, and why can’t I encounter Him the same way they did? And since the Canon of the Bible wasn’t decided upon until the 4th century, did all who lived beforehand NOT know Him to the extent those of us who possess a Bible are able to know Him?
Do we put too much emphasis on reading the Bible and not enough on living in communion with God and conversing with Him in person?
These are questions I have, as I study for the exegesis class I’m currently taking.
