You study the Scriptures diligently because you think that in them you have eternal life. These are the very Scriptures that testify about me, John 5:39 NIV
The Jewish leaders prided themselves in reading the scriptures, thinking that in so doing they have received eternal life. The Old Testament is filled with prophecies of the coming of the Messiah, yet these leaders chose not to recognized Christ as the One.
Eternal life does not come from reading scripture. It comes from believing in Jesus Christ whom the Heavenly Father sent to us to save us from our sins. Yes, one who does believe will read the scriptures, as spiritual nourishment is a requirement within the life of a believer.
