There is nothing more valuable in the entire world than the Bible. And no one considers it more precious than God Himself. After all, it is His own Word. He graciously gave the Scriptures to instruct and to spiritually enrich men, leading His people to salvation and edification. But it was not only intended for those who first received the Scriptures. Remember what Jesus said in John 17:20. God intended for His Word to be passed down from generation to generation, century after century, and He also intended for it to be taken to every tribe and country all around the world.
