Don Carson’s devotional blog is based on two volumes of daily Bible readings he previously published. As with most of Carson’s work, the insights he brings is both straight forward, and yet profound. This insight comes mainly from the English text and, really, is available to all who will read their Bible regularly, prayerfully, with a view to also obey it, and on a sustained basis.
For the Christian the New Testament is replete with commands (imperatives in the original Greek) to read and study the Scriptures which was the Old Testament in that day. The O.T. is still relevant in many ways and both the Old and New Testaments will benefit us. In this Age of the Spirit (The “Comforter” who Jesus sent to be with us forever), we should read what the Spirit wrote for believers through the holy prophets and apostles. The Spirit will be our teacher if we know Him and read His truth (But the anointing that you received from him abides in you, and you have no need that anyone should teach you. But as his anointing teaches you about everything, and is true, and is no lie—just as it has taught you, abide in him. I Jn. 2.27 ESV).
