When Jesus came to the region of Caesarea Philippi, he asked his disciples, “Who do people say the Son of Man is?”
He commanded us to preach to the people and to testify that he is the one whom God appointed as judge of the living and the dead. (NIV)
We must pay more careful attention, therefore, to what we have heard, so that we do not drift away. 2 For if the message spoken by angels was binding, and every violation and disobedience received its just punishment, 3 how shall we escape if we ignore such a great salvation? This salvation, which was first announced by the Lord, was confirmed to us by those who heard him. 4 God also testified to it by signs, wonders and various miracles, and gifts of the Holy Spirit distributed according to his will. (NIV)
For the Lord gives wisdom,
and from his mouth come knowledge and understanding. (NIV)
and fair — every good path.
10 For wisdom will enter your heart,
and knowledge will be pleasant to your soul. (NIV)
