The Inexhaustible Fullness of Scripture

There are great depths in all our Lord Jesus Christ’s recorded dealings upon earth, which no one has ever fully fathomed. There are mines of rich instruction in all His words and ways, which no one has thoroughly explored. Many a passage of the Gospels is like the cloud which Elijah’s servant saw (1 Kings 18:44). The more we look at it the greater it will appear. There is an inexhaustible fullness in Scripture. Other writings seem comparatively poor and threadbare, when we become familiar with them; but the more we read the Bible the richer we shall find it.

From Expository thoughts on Matthew by J.C. Ryle
