More open-minded: Acts 17.11

“These Jews were more open-minded than those in Thessalonica, for they eagerly received the message, examining the scriptures carefully every day to see if these things were so.”

Acts 17.11

“Open-minded” translates the word for “noble.” This nobility showed itself in willingness to learn and to consider the message, and compare it with what Scripture says.

The Bereans are properly used as a good example of what we should do today. Open-mindedness is not accepting everything that is said, but a critical ear that weighs all against the Word.
