This indicated that Paul, living during the time of eye witnesses, had access to much more information than in the Gospels. Now there are also many other things that Jesus did. Were every one of them to be written, I suppose that the world itself could not contain the books that would be written. (John 21:25, ESV) This shows that Paul's information about ...

Paul commanded Timothy in 1 Timothy 6: 11 But you, man of God, flee from all this, and pursue righteousness, godliness, faith, love, endurance and gentleness. 12 Fight the good fight of the faith. Take hold of the eternal life to which you were called when you made your good confession in the presence of many witnesses. Paul gave an example of this good ...

1 Timothy 5: 3 Give proper recognition to those widows who are really in need. 4But if a widow has children or grandchildren, these should learn first of all to put their religion into practice by caring for their own family and so repaying their parents and grandparents, for this is pleasing to God. 5The widow who is really in need and left all alone puts ...

Paul's message, his in-depth theology and profound understanding of the Gospel could not have come from Stephen's brief speech - it would have required much more - that is why he went to Arabia for a while to learn directly from God. See appendix below. Thus, I am confident that Saul/Paul heard Stephen's speech to the Sanhedrin; but to become the man he did ...

Jesus' two most common titles in the NT are: The Son of Man, Matt 11:19, 24:30, Mark 14:21, Luke 9:26, etc The Son of God, The Son of Man The title "The Son of Man" serves several functions - it is an allusion to Jesus full humanity (and ultimately mortality) as per the Hebrew idiom in places like Eze 21:19, 28:2, 33:2, 12, 37:16, 43:7, etc It ...

OP, you asked: But, whereas Adam was the Father of all mankind, why then is Jesus never called our Father? Why do the Scriptures consistently refer to him as "the Son"? First, God is the “father” of all by virtue of the fact that he is the Creator of the human family. Humanity was fashioned in his very image (Genesis 1:26-27) Do we not all have ...

What, then, is the significance of the "Second Adam" being "the Son of Man" not "Father of Man"? The topic "Son of Man" in the Insight of the Scriptures brings out how this applies to Jesus Christi: Christ Jesus, “the Son of Man.” In the Gospel accounts the expression is found nearly 80 times, applying in every case ...

According to Isaiah 9:6, one of the titles of the Messiah (the Christ) is "Everlasting Father". He is also called "the Mighty God" as is Yahweh in Isaiah 10:21. Herein lies the significance of the last Adam (not 'the second Adam' as you state). Herein lies the uncrossable chasm between the first man Adam being created by God out of dust, ...

Genesis 3: 20 Adam named his wife Eve, because she would become the mother of all the living. Eve is called the mother of all the living but Adam is never called the Father of all mankind in the Bible. OP: Adam was not a son, but the father of all mankind: In fact, Adam is called the son of God in Luke 3: 38 the son of Enosh, the son of Seth, the son of ...

It seems logical to me that this peace-keeper would be Epaphroditus. We know Epaphroditus carried the letter back to Philippi, so he would be present among the congregation at its reading. Paul acknowledges Epaphroditus’s close connection with himself, as “my brother and co-worker and fellow soldier” (Philippians 2:25), which might qualify him as Paul's true ...

https://biblehub.com/hebrew/6445.htm Strong’s Exhaustive Concordance says of the form, מְפַנֵּ֣ק מפנק mə·p̄an·nêq mefanNek məp̄annêq bring up - A primitive root; to enervate - bring up. Upbringing with a purpose would be done by a master with an eye to the future of a child servant. Perhaps an orphan who (in Roman times) could be adopted into the master’...

When I looked up the word PANAQ it gave the meaning as to indulge or to pamper which makes sense in context of the proverb. In other words if you indulge and pamper a servant he'll end up thinking he's your son instead of your servant. He becomes thankless for all the indulgences you gave him. You no longer have a servant now because you have someone who ...

Can Philippians 1:6 be connected to 1 Corinthians 1:4-9? Yes, the connection is the indwelling Spirit. The indwelling confirms the believer in 1 Corinthians 1: 8 who will also confirm you to the end, blameless on the day of our Lord Jesus Christ. The indwelling Spirit completes the believer in Philippians 1: 6 For I am confident of this very thing, that ...

Paul's epistles maintain a balance between warning of the dangers of false teachers corrupting Christians, and the assurance Christians should have in God's providential care of them. Paul uses very strong language to condemn one group of corrupters - those of the circumcision group, who were trying to get Gentile converts circumcised. I quote the section to ...

Sure the two passages connect. This is a common theme throughout Paul's letters. For example. But God, being rich in mercy, because of the great love with which he loved us, 5 even when we were dead in our trespasses, made us alive together with Christ—by grace you have been saved— 6 and raised us up with him and seated us with him in the heavenly places ...

Are the principalities and powers in Titus 3:1 the same as in Ephesians 6:12? ESV Ephesians 6:12 For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the cosmic powers over this present darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places. ESV Titus 3:1 Remind them to be submissive to ...

It's different. Like in: Romans 13:1 Let every soul be subject unto the higher powers. For there is no power but of God: the powers that be are ordained of God. Christians are supposed to work Gods will within the confines of laws of lands they live so their freedom and rights are ensured. Like Daniel in Babylon for example. We cannot take the law into ...

It seems to be that the ordinary course must be to obey earthly powers but that spiritual wickedness, from their fruits will you know them, would suffice to justify the believer in taking an apposite position.
