Rubrication (from Latin “ruber,” or “red”) was the medieval practice of colorizing, usually in red, some of the words in biblical manuscripts for emphasis. Fast-forward to 1899 when the first modern red-letter edition of the New Testament was published, printing the words of Jesus Christ in red ink.

If you have a red-letter edition of the New Testament, Matthew 5–7 (except for the first two introductory verses of Matthew 5) are in red ink. That’s because they are Matthew’s record of Jesus’ Sermon on the Mount—His lengthy exposition of Kingdom theology based on a proper reading of the Old Testament. He summarized this lengthy teaching in Matthew 7:24-27 by referring to “these sayings of Mine.” Anyone who hears these teachings “and does them” will be like “a wise man” who built his house on solid rock instead of shifting sand. Such a firm foundation will withstand the storms of life.

The key to such stability is not just hearing Jesus’ words but doing them (James 1:22-23; 2:20-22). Build a strong life by not just hearing, but also doing, what the Word of God says.

The Church’s one foundation is Jesus Christ, her Lord.
Samuel John Stone
