Hebrews 8:10-11 (KJV) First Reach the Soul for Christ

Hebrews 8:10-11 (KJV)
For this is the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel after those days, saith the Lord; I will put my laws into their mind, and write them in their hearts: and I will be to them a God, and they shall be to me a people:And they shall not teach every man his neighbour, and every man his brother, saying, Know the Lord: for all shall know me, from the least to the greatest.
John Gill writes,
“…not with a natural, but with a spiritual knowledge; not with general knowledge of him, that he is, but with a special knowledge of him, that he is theirs; not with a legal, but with an evangelical knowledge; not with the knowledge of him in, and through the creatures, but in Christ; and that not speculative, but experimental; such as is attended with faith in him, fear of him, love to him, and a cheerful obedience to his will…”
The passage is applicable only to believers. It is not that the Christian needs no teacher but that the teacher is only effective in ministering to those who have this sort of knowledge of Christ.
  • We must seek first to reach the soul for Christ 
  • It is then that we may effectively preach and teach of Christ
Those who have taught Christ to others have all witnessed the difference there is in opening the Bible to those who know Christ versus opening it to those who do not.
