THE SPIRIT GUIDES US INTO "ALL TRUTH"

The perimeter of “all truth”

What is received must not exceed the teachings of the apostles

But Jesus knew there were many things the disciples could neither yet know nor accept if He, at the moment when He was with them, chose to tell them (Jn. 16:12). It is only right and logical to tell someone how much he can take. Therefore, He allowed the revelatory work of the Spirit to take place in the later life of His followers. He confirmed to them that His promise of the Spirit guiding them would come to pass (Jn. 16:13a).

Obviously, there are things that the disciples teach that are not found in the Gospels. Examples include baptism in the name of Jesus, that speaking in tongues provides the sole evidential value to the reception of the Holy Spirit, and salvation through grace. Are their teachings additional to that of Jesus? Jesus, foreseeing making His word complete, authenticated the word of His disciples (Lk. 10:16; Jn. 15:20; 1 Jn. 4:1-6).

The teachings of the apostles in the Bible originated from the Spirit, and thus the words of Jesus. After the church was established, the believers’ faith was built upon the word of the apostles (Acts 2:46). It is because the “all truths” was first given to the apostles. For that reason, whatever we receive must not exceed the teachings of the apostles.
