The Jews were given great divine privileges, the greatest being the very words of God. Yet, largely, they missed God’s purpose for themselves as an example to the world of what life with God would look like. We ought to study God’s word in a way that accomplishes His purpose and glorifies Him in our lives.
It is written in the Prophets: ‘They will all be taught by God.’ Everyone who listens to the Father and learns from Him comes to Me (John 6:45).
