A DESCRIPTION OF THE UNFATHOMABLE DEPTH OF THE BIBLE AND JESUS AND THE INSPIRATION THAT COMES FROM THEM
Everything the Lord Jesus spoke while on earth was spoken in correspondences. And, everything He did was in correspondences. This means that His words and actions contained an internal sense of meaning, just as every Word of Holy scripture has an external and internal sense. That Jesus did this is unfathomable to the human mind, but contemplating it gives us a glimpse of the actuality of His infinite wisdom. It is the truth of His nature that He is omnipotent and omniscient, and, at the same time – God follows His own laws of divine order. What comes from the will of God is divine truth by nature, and it is eternal by nature. It is immutable that what He wills even on this material earth will come true. This why everything that is written in the Bible has come true and will always be true.
This is why we love and wonder about everything He did. For instance, even the simple action Him writing with His finger in the sand when the people wanted to stone the adulterous woman.
The Lord writing on the earth signified that the the Jewish church was in a state of having adulterated religion. The Lord is always working that the true state of things be revealed to the people and that it have correspondence with heaven. To write in the sand means that they were cursed if they did not change, not that Jesus curses, them but of their own have rejected God and even rejected Him when He was there with them in community. In Jeremiah, there is also this meaning where it says, “They that depart from me shall be written in the earth,” that they were equally condemned on account of adulteries. The pain of seeing them in this state is also why Jesus wept. In order for them to face the truth of where they are at Jesus said, “He that is without sin among you, let him first cast a stone at her.”
So, the Lord twice writing on the earth in the temple, signified in the spiritual sense, the devastated state of the church due to the adulteration of religion. The Scribes and Pharisees were especially the ones who adulterated the goods and falsified the truths of the Word, and of the church.
This is just one example, but the principle applies to every word in the Bible, and every word that Jesus spoke, and every action that He did. This shows how it is that no matter how much we learn and love in the Bible, we continually come to realize how little we know, and this is a good thing, for it is a built-in protection against pride – for in seeing this we are then humbled, and yearn for the Lord all the more.
