More than Facts

Don’t become a mere recorder of facts, but try to penetrate the mystery of their origin. (Ivan Pavlov, 19th & 20th century Russian physiologist)

“Just give me the facts” was a frequent line in an old detective TV show. That would be important in solving a crime, but the inquisitive student who researches the beginnings of things and the intricacies of their development may discover the real significance of those facts as they relate to life. Meaningful learning must go far beyond mere knowledge of the facts.

Aspects of [God’s] deep wisdom that were hidden away, He shows in plain sight. (Job 12:22)
