Possibly. That depends largely on the quality of their labor. The phrase "will receive his wages according to his labor" will make sense to you if I insert more words between the words to and his. (Not that I'm adding words to holy writ, but those added words come from other passages that do use those words. In other words, they come from the ...

Don't stretch the metaphors too much. While other passages such as 1 Timothy 5:17 do indicate that the ministry of some people is of a higher status than others, what Paul is saying here in 1 Corinthians 3 is that despite differences in our ministries, we're all one team, and it is ultimately God's work, not ours. Both planting and watering are essential ...

So I recommend caution when considering answers - even this one! Nevertheless, for consideration… The disciples asked Jesus 3 questions. MAT 24:3 Now as He sat on the Mount of Olives, the disciples came ...

It is true, as commented, that 'churches' is spoken by 'I, Jesus' in what might be called the 'epilogue' of the book, Revelation 22:16, but I understand the point of the question and I am answering the spirit of the question, regarding the body of the whole book, as such. One view of the entire book of Revelation is that there are seven sections, which are ...

He answered a question asked in v3 The 'end' that the disciples asked about Jesus statement is a long answer to a question asked just before. Matthew 24:3 (NASB, emphasis added) 3 As he sat on the Mount of Olives, the disciples came to him privately, saying, “Tell us, when will these things be, and what will be the sign of your coming and of the end of the ...
