Why Read the Bible?

>>Five Reasons Stated by Pope John Paul II on July 24, 1980<<
From the
word of Jesus ...
We learn, first and foremost, the very nature of God, who is Life, Light, Love, Trinity. No philosopher or theologian can penetrate the essence of God; only Jesus, the Word Incarnate, can reveal and guarantee this fundamental truth. Because of this we are certain that there is a relationship of love between God the Creator and man; every human being is an eternal heartbeat of God's love.
From the
word of Jesus ...
We know our eternal destiny; only Jesus, with His divine word, can assure us absolutely concerning the immortality of the soul and the final resurrection of the body, as a result of which it is worthwhile being born, living and projecting our existence beyond time towards endless happiness.
From the
word of Jesus ... ...
We learn, futhermore, where the true dignity of man lies; namely, in participation in divine life itself by mean of grace. "If a man loves me, he will keep my word , and my Father will love him, and we will come to him and make our home with him". (John 14:23). True joy, real news and supreme dignity are found only in the life of grace.
From the
word of Jesus ...
We learn how we must behave, because He reveals to us that the will of God is expressed in the moral law and in the supreme commandment of mutual charity. The will of God, in fact, is the absolute determinant between good and evil, the guideline for correct behavior and for true pedagogy.
Finally from
the word
of Jesus ...
We know also His presence, always current and alive in time and in history, by means of the Church, willed and founded by Him, which gives us certainty about the truths to believe and to practice, and offers us the Eucharist, a mystery of faith and at the same time a supreme manifestation of love.
