John Calvin puts forward a very simple reason why love is the greatest gift: “Because faith and hope are our own: love is diffused among others.” In other words, faith and hope benefit the possessor, but love always benefits another. In John 13:34–35 Jesus says, “A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.” Love always requires an “other” as an object; love cannot remain within itself, and that is part of what makes love the greatest gift.

    • Logos? What does it mean?

      What did John meant when he asserted Jesus to be Logos in John 1:1? Is Jesus the mind of God or a person separate from God the Father and yet one in essence? What is the implication of Jesus being the mind of God? Can we say mind of God had separate existence from God the Father? In Matthew's gospel, when disciples asked when kingdom of Israel was going to be restored, Jesus answered that neither the Son knows, only the Father knows. The mind is the realm of thoughts and knowledge, is it? If it

      The deep and long benefit, for the church, of the recent translation of Herman Bavinck's four-volume Gereformeerde Dogmatiek can hardly be overestimated. 1 This masterful exposition of Reformed theology, now easily accessible to the English-speaking world, will surely provoke new discussions and provide an advance in the depth of that theology for a much wider audience. Because the "reach" of these volumes is now significantly extended, the breadth and depth of the Reformed faith exp

    • In the Beginning was the Logos

      (John 1:1)   The word λόγος (logos) in the prologue of John's Gospel is a word with a very interesting history in ancient theological writings. It is translated 'Word' in English versions, but this translation does not express everything that the term would have suggested to ancient readers.   For the benefit of students, on this page I have reproduced discussions of the term λόγος by four New Testament scholars: Marvin Vincent, Frederic Godet, Hugh Mackintosh, and John Campbell. Vincent,

      by R.C. Sproul   “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God” (John 1:1). - John 1:1–18   The various names for Jesus tell us a great deal about who He is and what He came to do. Thus far we have looked at three different titles used for Jesus in the New Testament: “Christ,” “Lord,” and “Son of Man.” Today we will look at the title given to Jesus in the prologue to John’s gospel: “Logos.”   In English translations, John 1:1 reads, “in the beginn
