John 5:38-40 says, But you do not have His word abiding in you, because whom He sent, Him you do not believe. 39 You search the Scriptures, for in them you think you have eternal life; and these are they which testify of Me. 40 But you are not willing to come to Me that you may have life.
One of the things that man must keep in mind is that bible knowledge does not give him eternal life, only the person Jesus. Remember, Jesus is not a book but a person.
