The Bible wasn’t written to answer every single question. The Bible isn’t a comprehensive history book, science book, or a self-help book. Even after you read the whole Bible (or especially if you read the last book in the Bible), you’re going to have some questions. You might even have more questions than answers!

What the Bible does is it gives us a look at humanity, our fallen world, and a picture of God’s plan in our need for a savior. God works in mysterious ways to us. His thoughts and ways are higher than ours.

“For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways,” declares the Lord. “As the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts.”

Isaiah 55:8-9 (New International Version)

The Bible is full of many seemingly trivial details, but it just wasn’t written with every bit of information we might wish it had. If every single thing was written down, even if it was just the things Jesus did, the volumes of the books might not fit in this world! (John 21:25)

We don’t have a clear picture. How can you believe in something when you don’t have all the answers? Believing in what’s written in the Bible, despite not having all the answers, is called faith.

“For now we see through a glass, darkly; but then face to face: now I know in part; but then shall I know even as also I am known.”

1 Corinthians 13:12 (King James Version)
