Comments:

Teaching the Word – Theology is important
Some hearts are not good soil for the seed of the Word to grow
The “fallow ground” of the heart must be broken up before the seed can grow
Are you among those who accept the truth or those who reject it?
You have two choices – truth or politics – which will you choose?
Paul’s teaching was from the Old Testament – that was their “Bible”
Being Noble Bereans should be the practice of all believers – Acts 17:11
