What Does God Know? (New Testament)



What does God know? What does the Bible say? I searched the Bible for words containing 'know', this included 'knoweth', 'knowing', 'knows', 'knowledge'. This search came back with over 500 New Testament verses. I then looked at each verse to see if it was God who was doing the knowing. It was a very fascinating and powerful study for me.
