Estienne’s Numbers

A miscellany from January 11, 2014.

Sometimes I regret that I often don’t remember the exact verse, chapter, or even book where significant passages of Scripture are found. But then I’m encouraged when I read the book of Hebrews, whose writer felt it was entirely acceptable to simply state that “it has been testified somewhere” (Heb. 2:6). Knowing precisely where a passage comes from is not the important thing. The important thing is knowing the passage itself, with its proper meaning and application. Hiding the word in your heart is not a matter of memorizing numerical citations. God’s words are infinitely greater than Estienne’s numbers.
