John 21:25
There are many other things that Jesus did.

Not that just filled the four Gospels, but many other things. That’s a powerful statement in itself. That could finish off John’s Gospel and be complete wouldn’t you say?
But then John, led by the Holy Spirit continues: If, implying that it could be done, every one of them were written down, I suppose that the whole world would not have room for the books that would be written.

Recently I was studying about Abraham and postulating what the astronomers, astrologers and such would have made of his claims that the Lord had said Abraham’s seed would be as the multitude of stars in the heavens. Surely at that time most believed the world was flat and the planets and Sun rotated around the earth. Then gazing into the sky one could count with the unaided eye maybe three thousand stars. That didn’t seem like such a vast family line as we might have supposed.

They most likely didn’t live to even understand the promise given Abraham and it’s amazing future, let alone the vastness of the universe that Jehovah was communicating along with the prophetic utterance of the Hebrew tribe that was to be. Only multitudes of years later have we ascertained that the universe is ever expanding and there are some 100 billion galaxies with 100 billion stars in their galaxies.

Respectively the people of the apostles time when reading the gospels probably believed the Middle East, Africa, Europe and Asia were most likely the whole world, not knowing John inspired by the Holy Ghost was undoubtedly including the Americas, Australia, Antarctica and any little bits unbeknown to them at the time.

At the finish of one the last Malibu Bible studies at Pepperdine I closed with this scripture from the book of John. If Jesus ministry was about three to three and a half years or somewhere near 1000-1200 days, can you imagine how many signs were being performed daily?

Surely if we are to follow in His footsteps, each believer should at least be able to fill up just one continent full of books. Wouldn’t you agree it’s about time the Body of Christ stepped up to the call?

As for me, regardless of present circumstances, I’m standing with John Paul Jones who during the Battle of Flamborough Head with his ship rammed twice by the opposing military answered, “I have not yet begun to fight!”.

I vow to fill up at least two continents!
