Absolutely Amazing -- And all who heard him were amazed at his understanding and answers.  (Luke 2:47).
  Peter, James, and John were burly fishermen.  Their arms bulged with strength from years of pulling on the oars of the boat and nets.  They had no Bible college education; they were just unlearned men of the sea.  Yet God chose them to be his future messengers.
   When arrested and questioned by the Saddeucees these unlearned fishermen amazed them with their knowledge of the Scriptures.  The only conclusion that the religious leaders could reach was that they had been with Jesus. 
   The teachers in the temple at Jerusalem reached a similar conclusion while discussing the things of God with a twelve year old boy called Jesus.  As Luke 2:47 says, they were amazed at his understanding and answers. 
   How do we attain the level of knowledge that Peter and John possessed?  We are told by Peter himself in his epistle, "Like newborn babies, long for the pure milk of the word, so that by it you may grow in respect to salvation.  (1 Peter 2:2). 
   The only way to grow in the knowledge of Christ is by spending time with him in the Word of God.  Daily Bible study is vital to spiritual growth.  Why not make a commitment today to spend time daily in the word of God?
