Lord, today I am thankful for all those who study and explain Scripture. These men and women have studied your Holy Word, studied archaeological documents, and the customs of those who lived when the Bible was written. To help us understand the Scriptures, and You, they have written commentaries, concordances, Bible Studies and books about Your Word. This helps us understand You and Your ways better so that we may interact with this world in a godly way and know how to share Jesus Christ with others.
30 Then Philip ran up to the chariot and heard the man reading Isaiah the prophet. “Do you understand what you are reading?” Philip asked.
31 “How can I,” he said, “unless someone explains it to me?” So he invited Philip to come up and sit with him.
32 This is the passage of Scripture the eunuch was reading:
“He was led like a sheep to the slaughter,
and as a lamb before its shearer is silent,
so he did not open his mouth.
33 In his humiliation he was deprived of justice.
Who can speak of his descendants?
For his life was taken from the earth.”
34 The eunuch asked Philip, “Tell me, please, who is the prophet talking about, himself or someone else?” 35 Then Philip began with that very passage of Scripture and told him the good news about Jesus.
May you be blessed with fresh insight into the Scriptures today.
