A Short Study of Matthew 22:29

“Jesus answered and said unto them, ye do err, not knowing the scriptures, nor the power of God.”
(Matthew 22:29)


Our blessed Lord answers the question of the Sadducees about the resurrection by telling them their problem. The problem is not with Christ and the truth of the resurrection, it is with the sinner. Here our Lord declares to us the root cause of all error and unbelief; it is ignorance of the Scriptures and not knowing the power of God. These two truths are inseparable, there is no way of knowing and understanding the power of God apart from the revelation of Holy Scripture (Romans 15:4; John 5:39; John 20:31), nor is there any way of knowing and understanding the Holy Scriptures apart from the power of God revealing them unto us (John 16:13-15; 1st Corinthians 2:9-14).
