The Scriptures are God's greatest Gift to mankind. We can think of many Great Gifts that God has given to  humanity, but the bottom line is it is clearly the greatest gift.

Can you understand why?

When I first heard this idea I objected right away until the pastor answered me.

In evangelizing those around us, one of our primary tasks is to establish the fact that the bible is the word of God written, which will judge men on the last day.

vComing to the Lord Jesus Christ in faith and turning from a life of sin in repentance are only the beginning, the very first steps in a pilgrimage that cannot end until we stand glorified and completely redeemed⎯body, soul and spirit⎯in the very presence of God. Such truth should transform our lives, govern our thinking, sanctify our motives, mitigate our suffering, determine every human relationship, and quicken our feeble efforts to live as Christians⎯those who are being conformed to the image of Christ.The Place of Bible Study in God’s Purpose
Because of this high and glorious goal of being conformed to the image of Christ, and so being foreordained unto good works, there are certain necessary issues:

• We must be a holy or sanctified people (Eph. 1:3–5; 1 Thess. 4:3; Titus 2:11–15; 1 Pet. 2:9).
• We must grow in grace and in the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ (2 Pet. 3:18; Phil. 1:9–11; 3:10–15).
• We must mortify sin (Psa. 119:11; Rom. 8:11–13; Col. 3:5).
• We must have a proper understanding of the Scriptures in order to interpret and apply them correctly (2 Tim. 2:15).
Note: The word translated “study” in our English Bible, which makes this the primary text for Bible study, does not necessarily convey the full significance of the Gk. The term spou ,dason (spoudason),aor. imp., denotes “give the utmost diligence with a sense of urgency and determination.”
  To Know the Will of God
The Bible reveals the general will of God and often his specific will to all men, especially the believer (Ex: 20:1–17; Eccl. 12:13–14; Matt. 22:36–39). The spiritual nature of Bible study is presupposed in knowing God’s will through the study of his Word. The end result is conformity to God’s will through the grace of the Holy Spirit. The Scriptures know nothing of a mere abstract or theoretical knowledge but only a concrete or
experiential knowledge of God’s will, i.e., the will of God is only truly known and enjoyed as we submit and conform to it (Psa.
119:11; Rom. 12:1–2)!26
To be Obedient to God
A right understanding of the Scriptures is essential for intelligently knowing the revealed will of God, which, in turn, is necessary to our complete, willful and loving obedience (Rom. 2:17–20; Eph. 5:15–17; 1 Thess. 4:3; 5:18; 1 Jn. 2:3–6). Apart from the Scriptures we would be left to our own ideas, prejudices and feelings. True Bible study is meant to bring us into faithful obedience to the Word of God.

To be Obedient to God
A right understanding of the Scriptures is essential for intelligently knowing the revealed will of God, which, in turn, is necessary to our complete, willful and loving obedience (Rom. 2:17–20; Eph. 5:15–17; 1 Thess. 4:3; 5:18; 1 Jn. 2:3–6).

The Bible reveals the general will of God and often his specific will to all men, especially the believer (Ex: 20:1–17; Eccl. 12:13–14; Matt. 22:36–39). The spiritual nature of Bible study is presupposed in knowing God’s will through the study of his Word. The end result is conformity to God’s will through the grace of the Holy Spirit.

My first objections were...Jesus is the greatest gift, or salvation is the greatest gift . Both are great for sure, but not the greatest..

Anthony, I liked what you wrote here. It got me thinking. The greatest gift is the Word (the scriptures). And the Word was made flesh and dwelt among us (Jesus). Jesus is the greatest Gift. 🙌 Amen!    
vComing to the Lord Jesus Christ in faith and turning from a life of sin in repentance are only the beginning, the very first steps in a pilgrimage that cannot end until we stand glorified and completely redeemed⎯body, soul and spirit⎯in the very presence of God. Such truth should transform our lives, govern our thinking, sanctify our motives, mitigate our suffering, determine every human relationship, and quicken our feeble efforts to live as Christians⎯those who are being conformed to the image of Christ.The Place of Bible Study in God’s Purpose
Because of this high and glorious goal of being conformed to the image of Christ, and so being foreordained unto good works, there are certain necessary issues:

• We must be a holy or sanctified people (Eph. 1:3–5; 1 Thess. 4:3; Titus 2:11–15; 1 Pet. 2:9).
• We must grow in grace and in the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ (2 Pet. 3:18; Phil. 1:9–11; 3:10–15).
• We must mortify sin (Psa. 119:11; Rom. 8:11–13; Col. 3:5).
• We must have a proper understanding of the Scriptures in order to interpret and apply them correctly (2 Tim. 2:15).
Note: The word translated “study” in our English Bible, which makes this the primary text for Bible study, does not necessarily convey the full significance of the Gk. The term spou ,dason (spoudason),aor. imp., denotes “give the utmost diligence with a sense of urgency and determination.”

True spirituality is primarily intellectual and then practical—not mystical, emotional or irrational. It is primarily intellectualTo Know the Will of God
The Bible reveals the general will of God and often his specific will to all men, especially the believer (Ex: 20:1–17; Eccl. 12:13–14; Matt. 22:36–39). The spiritual nature of Bible study is presupposed in knowing God’s will through the study of his Word. The end result is conformity to God’s will through the grace of the Holy Spirit. The Scriptures know nothing of a mere abstract or theoretical knowledge but only a concrete or
experiential knowledge of God’s will, i.e., the will of God is only truly known and enjoyed as we submit and conform to it (Psa.
119:11; Rom. 12:1–2)!26
To be Obedient to God
A right understanding of the Scriptures is essential for intelligently knowing the revealed will of God, which, in turn, is necessary to our complete, willful and loving obedience (Rom. 2:17–20; Eph. 5:15–17; 1 Thess. 4:3; 5:18; 1 Jn. 2:3–6). Apart from the Scriptures we would be left to our own ideas, prejudices and feelings. True Bible study is meant to bring us into faithful obedience to the Word of God.
