John 2:22 (KJV) One and the Same

John 2:22 (KJV)
When therefore he was risen from the dead, his disciples remembered that he had said this unto them; and they believed the scripture, and the word which Jesus had said.

The Gospel According to John was written very nearly one hundred years after the birth of Christ. It is obvious as John includes a comment in this account of an event early in Christ’s ministry having to do with the disciples’ reaction at the end of His earthly ministry. When Jesus was resurrected they remembered the Scriptures prophesying His death burial and resurrection and they remembered His own words having to do with the same.

I believe the point is to tie the two things they remembered and believed together. The Scriptures and the words of Christ are one and the same. Something that is the same is not different.

The Scripture is not higher than the word of Christ nor is visa-versa.

  • The Scripture is not more inspired
  • The Scripture is not more accurate
  • The Scripture is not more believable

than the word of Christ. Nor is the word of Christ superior the Scripture. They are one and the same.
