    In my Bible, today’s text is referred to as the “Witness of the Scripture.” What Jesus is saying here is that if you knew the Scriptures you would believe in Him. The only Scripture they had was the Hebrew Writings (Old Testament), so Jesus is saying, according to John, that in order to believe we must understand the Old Testament. We have the advantage of having both the writings of Moses and the prophets, and the writings of the Apostles, yet many still do not believe in Him and therefore they do not have the love of God in them (v.42).

    What the world needs today is the love of God, which comes only from knowing Jesus, and the best way for them to receive Him is for us to open the Scriptures to them. This why I believe reading and sharing the scriptures are so important.
