Witness defined: to bear witness to; testify to; give or afford evidence of.
When Jesus was still a boy scripture records, “they found Him in the temple, sitting in the midst of the teachers, both listening to them and asking them questions.” Conversations within the body are where we can come to compare notes, grow, learn and get better understanding. The Bereans were commended in the bible because they received the message of truth not because of who was speaking but because they examined the scriptures to see if what they were being taught was right.
What we speak to one another is eternal. Our conversations are recorded in heaven. The Word helps us to learn we should be okay to ask questions. When we speak about what we believe, what we think and what we question, there should always be room for conversation. To sit amongst wise counsel is to learn about wisdom. Wisdom is the principal thing; therefore get wisdom. And in all your getting, get understanding. Now and again in our conversations, questions may arise and it’s our duty and responsibility to handle them with biblical guidance. Jesus Himself encouraged His disciples to ask questions.
