According to Paul, the purpose of the scriptures is to give light, not life. This is true whether they are read, or preached. Jesus taught the same thing when He said, "Search the scriptures; for in them ye think ye have eternal life: and they are they which testify of me."(John 5:39). Helen Keller had spiritual life before the Bishop shared the gospel message with her. What she received was light upon the life she already possessed … light to learn that her redeemer's name was Jesus.
