Bible Answer

Is there a connection in Prov., Jer., Mark, 1Cor., and Heb. 10:23?

Do these verses intertwine into a greater meaning, Proverbs 10:23, Jeremiah 10:23, Mark 10:23, 1 Corinthians 10:23, and Hebrews 10:23?

Prov. 10:23  Doing wickedness is like sport to a fool, And so is wisdom to a man of understanding.
Jer. 10:23  I know, O Lord, that a man’s way is not in himself, Nor is it in a man who walks to direct his steps.
Mark 10:23  And Jesus, looking around,  said to His disciples, “How hard it will be for those who are wealthy to enter the kingdom of God!”
1Cor. 10:23  All things are lawful, but not all things are profitable. All things are lawful, but not all things edify.
Heb. 10:23  Let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering, for He who promised is faithful;

Despite sharing similar chapter and number citations, each of these verses is found in entirely different contexts and are speaking on entirely different topics, and therefore there is no meaningful relationship between them.

Moreover, the proper study of scripture doesn’t work in this way. Scripture must be understood verse-by-verse in its proper context as part of a single work. For example, if you desire to understand the meaning of Hebrews 10:23, then we recommend you study the entire book of Hebrews, which we offer on our website for free.
