This is incorrect. When the Bible was originally taught to the people by Moses, everyone understood it completely, and did not need any explanation. However, this has not been the case up to the present which is why there are commentaries on the Bible and explanations. It is still perfect, although the people of this generations cannot understand it as they should without the appropriate commentaries.
