Q: #104. I was reading in (Acts 20:35) that Jesus said, "It is more blessed to give than to receive," but I don't see anywhere that Jesus said this. Can you explain?

A: In (Jn 21:25), John said, "And there are also many other things which Jesus did, the which, if they should be written every one, I suppose that even the world itself could not contain the books that should be written. Amen."
In other words, not every single word or deed Jesus did is recorded in the Bible. This verse is an example of a quote Jesus gave that was not recorded in the Gospels, and supposedly the only one.
Obviously, not every single act of Jesus' life could be recorded, but since God inspired every word in the Bible, we can know that we have what God wanted us to have.
