What's In the Gospels "FOR" Us?
Now all these things happened unto them for ensamples:
and they are written for our admonition, upon whom the ends of the world are come.
I Corinthians 10:11
For whatsoever things were written aforetime were written for our learning,
that we through patience and comfort of the scriptures might have hope.
Romans 15:4

Remember, the Gospels are still in the Old Testament doctrinally!
Hebrews 9:16,17
Gospels are not TO us!

However, there is still plenty within those Gospels FOR us!

Gospel of John
Chapter Seven
More highlights from the Gospels that are misapplied today!

John 7

1: After these things Jesus walked in Galilee: for he would not walk in Jewry, because the Jews sought to kill him.

2: Now the Jews' feast of tabernacles was at hand.
3: His brethren therefore said unto him, Depart hence, and go into Judaea, that thy disciples also may see the works that thou doest.
4: For there is no man that doeth any thing in secret, and he himself seeketh to be known openly. If thou do these things, shew thyself to the world.
5: For neither did his brethren believe in him.
6: Then Jesus said unto them, My time is not yet come: but your time is alway ready.

7: The world cannot hate you; but me it hateth, because I testify of it, that the works thereof are evil.
The feast He wasn't going to attend.
8: Go ye up unto this feast: I go not up yet unto this feast; for my time is not yet full come.
9: When he had said these words unto them, he abode still in Galilee.
10: But when his brethren were gone up, then went he also up unto the feast, not openly, but as it were in secret.
11: Then the Jews sought him at the feast, and said, Where is he?
12: And there was much murmuring among the people concerning him: for some said, He is a good man: others said, Nay; but he deceiveth the people.
13: Howbeit no man spake openly of him for fear of the Jews.
14: Now about the midst of the feast Jesus went up into the temple, and taught.
15: And the Jews marvelled, saying, How knoweth this man letters, having never learned?
16: Jesus answered them, and said, My doctrine is not mine, but his that sent me.

How to learn God's doctrine during the Gospel days?
Circumcising on the sabbath?  Shame on them! Appearance?
This was the issue during the gospel days!
They know!
And when they finally found out who he really was? They believe but still show doubt?
Believing Murmurings!
If they only knew, eh...
He was talking future, still!
No Holy Ghost given - so why teach people today from a time when there was no Holy Ghost given?
They still couldn't take him!

Never man spake like this man.
Nice try, Nick, but it didn't work! 53: And every man went unto his own house.
