The Bible Is Silent (John 20:30-31)

The Apostle Thomas and his betrothed were winemakers, present at the wedding in Cana when Jesus Christ performed His first miracle, transforming water into wine. Because of their knowledgeable backgrounds and both were eyewitnesses to the miracle, they left their job and followed Jesus as His disciples. Plausible? Yes. Believable? Perhaps. Factual? No. The only definite fact is the Bible is silent on these conversations and relationships.

I was viewing a docudrama, one of several newer productions that feature Jesus Christ and other stories of the Bible, portraying familiar characters with augmented plot lines. There is a liberal dosing of true Bible verses that are blended with fictional accounts and highly dramatized renderings of true events recorded in the Bible. While these docudramas do focus attention on the life and teachings of Jesus Christ, one should always be wary of what is being presented. These are extrapolations and interpretations. The Apostle John wrote these prescient words in His Gospel account of the life of Jesus Christ, perhaps anticipating this time. 

Therefore many other  signs Jesus also performed in the presence of the disciples, which are not written in this book; but these have been written so that you may believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God; and that believing you may have life in His name. 

John 20:30-31 (NASB)

And there are also many other things which Jesus did, which if they were written in detail, I suppose that even the world itself would not contain the books that would be written. 

John 21:25 (NASB)

The Bible is silent on these additional stories because the complete revelation of Jesus Christ has been written. John, through the Holy Spirit, is unequivocally stating that all we need to know about Jesus Christ is written in the Bible. There is no need to add to God’s Word. 

The story of Jesus Christ is complete. What is still being written is the story of our faith in Him. This will continue until we behold His glorious presence in Heaven.


Love and trust in the Lord; seek His will in your life.
