Handling Rightly the Word of Truth

How often do we see people believe that many things are in the Bible that simply are not there?

Consider the following questions:

1. What was the fruit of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil (Genesis 3:3)?
2. How many wise men were there (Matthew 2:1-12)?
3. What should not be added to or taken away from (Revelation 22:18-19)?

Bible students will know that neither the fruit of the tree nor the number of wise men is ever revealed in the Bible; Revelation 22:18-19 refers to the book of Revelation proper, yet many people yet think that Adam and Eve ate an apple, there were three wise men, and Revelation 22:18-19 refer to the whole Bible. Let us make sure that we are always reading our Bibles accurately.
