Phenomenon of Amazing Detail


Matthew 5:18 "For truly I say to you, until heaven and earth pass away, not the smallest letter or stroke shall pass from the Law until all is accomplished.

We believe by faith that God inspires every word of the scriptures. This is especially so in all the ideas and concepts communicated by His words. Only truth and no error is embedded in the Holy Bible.

If this is the case, then it should be so in all the details. The well-known quotation "God is in the detail" attributed to German-born architect Ludwig Mies van der Rohe (1886-1969) is certainly true. The concept of "Phenomenon of Amazing details" (PAD) stems from this concept.

Definition of PAD:
This is intricate truth found in scriptures that on studying ties in with real facts, as we know them or facts in the text that harmonizes with other scriptures, becoming evident only after the details in the passage are carefully studied.

Jesus said in Matt. 5:18 that the smallest letter or stroke in God's words has meaning and will be eternal. Thus, it is no surprise that PAD's are the Bible.

It should be noted that all these PAD's are the results of ordinary laymen interacting in regular Bible Studies. This is as expected for the Bible is written for laymen and if we dig deep into His word, treasures will be found.

Many of these PAD's are quite amazing and one purpose is that in reading them, you all will be amazed by His words. However this is actually the usual pattern, if due attention is given to His words, as experienced by listeners of Jesus teachings in the NT in Mark 6:2 When the Sabbath came, He began to teach in the synagogue; and the many listeners were astonished, saying, "Where did this man get these things, and what is this wisdom given to Him?"

The PAD's are written for all to study in depth and then to marvel at His truth. May this be so in your life, to strongly affirm your faith in the Scriptures.
