Where God gave His Word

from my friend, Dr. John Williamson:

"While preparing a Sunday School lesson, I stumbled across a remarkable verse. The psalmist wrote, "He declares his words to Jacob, His statutes and his ordinances to Israel" (Psalm 147:19). The author is encouraging his readers to sing in praise of the Lord God, and he tells us a very important truth. The source of God's Word had one and only one geographic spot of origin. He gave his word to Israel.

Think of the variety of religions and religious viewpoints today, from where did they originate? Islam came out of Arabia. B'hai emerged from Iran. Mormonism is indigenous to the United States. Hinduism and Buddhism are native to India. Shinto is Japanese. Yet, where did God give his Word?"
