Study too much Bible?

I only got in on the last round of a new game show called The American Bible Challenge; but I liked it.
Comedian Jeff Foxworthy is the host and mixes a bit of humor with honoring God with questions on Bible knowledge and prize money for a charity.
I recorded the same program and watched it in its entirety. I’ll admit I got 2 wrong answers; but with my wrong answers came some new knowledge. I love learning God’s word.
I’ve been a serious student of the Bible since I 18 years old. I attended a Bible school and received an associate degree in Biblical studies.
That did not end my study of God’s word. I read it every day. Some days I meditate on it more than others.
Is there such a thing as too much study of God’s word?
I don’t think so but some others do.
The Jewish leaders wanted to kill the apostle Paul and brought charges against him.
He was found innocent but Paul appealed to Caesar in order to keep from being killed by the Jews.
He remained in prison as time dragged on and finally had an audience before King Herod Agrippa.
Paul spoke of Jewish history and faith. He spoke of his own faith in Judaism and how he wanted to wipe out Christianity.
He then told of his own salvation on the Damascus road.
When he finished the Roman official shouted, “Paul, you are insane. Too much study has made you crazy!” Acts 26:24
Is there ever such a thing as too much study?
Can you know too much Bible?
I don’t think so!
God’s word encourages learning!
Prov 18:15 – Intelligent people are always ready to learn. Their ears are open for knowledge.
1 Tim 4:11 – Teach these things and insist that everyone learn them.
2 Tim 2:15 – Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.
