Bible Term: Mystery

There are things about God, following Jesus, and accepting his salvation that the Bible simply describes as a mystery, that is, as hidden truths or a mystic secret. This drives some people crazy; they want to understand all and be able to fully explain everything. Anything less causes frustration.

Other people relish the realization that some things of God are but a mystery. That draws them to him; it’s an allure. Daily, they strive to unravel his mystery and know him more fully. This is as it should be. To explore this mystery motif more fully, consider the following verses that evoke the mystery explanation:

Job 11:7

Romans 11:25 and 16:25

1 Corinthians 15:51

Ephesians 1:9, 3:3-4, 3:6, 3:9, 5:32, 6:19

Colossians 1:26-27, 2:2, 4:3

1 Timothy 3:16

Revelation 10:7

The word mystery is used in other contexts in Daniel 2:18-47, 4:9, 1 Corinthians 13:2, 14:2, and Revelation 1:20, 17:5, 7.
