Acts 17:11 (NIV)
Now the Berean Jews were of more noble character than those in Thessalonica, for they received the message with great eagerness and examined the Scriptures every day to see if what Paul said was true. As a result, many of them believed, as did also a number of prominent Greek (pictures of unicorns, puppies, etc) women and many Greek men.

   The Berean Jews were noted for their noble character because they didn't just take the word of the teacher, in this case, Paul but instead, they studied scripture and compared it to what Paul was saying.  In this study of the word, they believed and grew in number.  They applied themselves to study to examining the words of the teacher. 

Deuteronomy 29:29...The secret things belong to the LORD our God, but the things revealed belong to us and to our children forever, that we may follow all the words of this law.





   One word of caution however is found in John...our study and gained knowledge must turn us to Christ, not away from Him.

John 5:39-40...You study the Scriptures diligently because you think that in them you have eternal life. These are the very Scriptures that testify about me,  yet you refuse to come to me to have life.

I try very hard to follow the standard of Jesus that I teach...Acts 7:11

1 Cor 15:3-4.."For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:"

Acts 17:11.."These were more noble than those in Thessalonica, in that they received the word with all readiness of mind, and searched the scriptures daily, whether those things were so."
