I've been in numerous discussions with cessationists even before the advent of the publicly available internet, and they don't have a single scripture, in context and as written, to stand on. Some of them are just completely ignorant of scripture, but others can quote it better than I can, but either they don't understand it, or in most cases don't care what it actually says. They idolize their powerless academic heroes, and not even God is allowed to get in the way.

I have known John 5:39-40 for some time, but the interesting thing about that verse is what Jesus says. Not just his words but the meaning behind them:John 5:39-40 ESVYou search the Scriptures because you think that in them you have eternal life; and it is they that bear witness about me, yet you refuse to come to me that you may have life.To me (I stress my understanding here), Jesus is telling the leaders (Pharisess, lawyers, etc) that they knew the scriptures well but had not allowed that knowledge to guide them to himself (Galatians 3:22-26).I cannot tell you how many times as a young Baptist I was told the Bible was everything. Sola Scriptura to the extreme. So apparently knowing a lot of scripture is even in itself not enough to truly know Christ.
