To know anyone, you must spend time with them. So it is with our Lord Jesus Christ. If you want to know Him, you must read and study the Scriptures and other works, too. More has been written about Christ than any other man who ever lived.
Puritan author John Flavel wrote the following in his book The Fountain of Life: "The truths discovered in Christ are the secrets that from eternity lay hid in the bosom of God. Studying Christ stamps a heavenly glory upon the contemplating soul. How little do we know of Christ, in comparison with what we might have known! O, how much time is spent in other studies and worldly employments; but how little in the search and study of Jesus Christ! O then, separate, devote, and wholly give yourself, your time, and your strength to this most sweet, transcendent study."
