The Expression Of The Word
In the years and days before the Lord Jesus began His public ministry after He was filled with the Holy Ghost at His baptism, the scriptures were but sacred and holy texts which were read out to the people at their synagogues. The scriptures could make them feel good or sad depending on what passage was read, and what the minister intended to pass across.
However, after the Lord Jesus came on the scene having been filled with the Holy Ghost, it was time for the scriptures to be fulfilled. Finally, the Holy texts would jump out of the pages of the long scrolls and find expression in a living being like never before. Never again would the hearts of the people be closed as soon as the book was closed.
