The Sufficiency of What is Written to Save

Concerning John 21:21, “Now there are also many other things that Jesus did.  Were every one of them to be written, I suppose that the world itself could not contain the books that would be written,” I found the following deduction to be most helpful, which is usually true concerning that which is most obvious, for God does not like to be assumed –

“He (John) had said enough.  While there were many other things that John could have written, what he had actually written was enough to secure his goal – to show that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God, and that by believing you might have life in His name (Jn 20:31).  He had said enough.”
