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.

Favorite study Bible?

Recommended Posts

Whenever I see your name I feel like saying "konnichi wa"[*1] so there, I just did.

 

 

 To begin with I am not a Pentecostal, but many years ago (1993?) I did have what I thought was a Pentecostal Study Bible. The pages were very white and strong. 

 

 The Weston Study Bible (King James Version)

 

 I am not sure though if it there are other versions, but I do know it is in the KJV.

 

 

 

 

 

 

[*1] "Good Afternoon" - a way of saying "Hello" at that time in Japanese.

I am wondering what other Pentecostals recommend for a study Bible.  Thanks!

Any Bible that has other then just scriptures , foot notes , chains , what ever . is designed to lead to in the direction of the author. The plain ol Bible is designed to do the same.

Good....well, morning now.  Merry Christmas! (I wonder what that is in Japanese).  Thank you for the recommendation, I'll check it out.  I know there's the Spirit Filled Life Bible, has anyone used that?

Though I am not a Pentecostal believer I strongly recommend two bibles that are among the best study bibles available. I recommend the Holman King James version Study Bible  or the King James  Tomas Nelson Study Bible .  These are serious Study Bibles for anyone wishing to dig deeply into the word of God.

I would recommend the NIV Study Bible for one reason and that is clarity in case you have trouble defining a particular passage of scripture difficult to understand . For instance I am reading both Ezra and Nehemiah in my Holman Study Bible . I had difficulty interpreting several chapters and verses of both books ,but when I reached for my NIV these passages became very clear to me and I was able to understand what was being exchanged between the various kings that were exchanging letters among themselves. Merry Christmas and I hope I helped you .   M

    • 1599 Geneva Bible

      I personally love this Bible. I have had mine for about 4 months now, and can't imagine reading without it. The notes are so helpful, and really give great insight to the Word. I love the old English, it really adds a poetic element, making it much easier to memorize.    Your thoughts? Like or Dislike?  Would love to have discussion!    God Bless!

    • Study: Statements Made With Clapping Hand Emojis Cannot Be Refuted

      CAMBRIDGE, MA—A groundbreaking peer-reviewed study published today in the journal Social Media Research found that statements made with a clapping hand emoji placed between each word are impossible to refute. While the study revealed that placing a clapping hand emoji “here and there” in your text makes it harder to refute, placing the emoji between every single world results in 100% irrefutability.

    • Favorite Non-English Bible Verse?

      By that, I mean a, translation of course. Is there any non-English translation of the Bible that contains a particularly interesting or moving passage?   One I love from the Luther BIble is: "Und Jesus gingen die Augen über." (John 11:35)   It is rather poetic German meaning "And Jesus' eyes overflowed." The English translation is normally rendered "Jesus wept."   How about you? Thanks for sharing. :)

    • Bible chapters and verses that I would change

      I am not referring to the words of the Bible, but how these words were arranged in chapters and verses. I think many are okay, but there are several places I would change.  For example:    Colossians 4:1  I would prefer to have Colossians chapter 3 continue beyond verse 25. v. 18 "fitting in the Lord" v. 20 "well-pleasing to the Lord" v.  22 "fearing the Lord" v. 23 "work heartily, as for the Lord" v. 24 "it is the Lord Christ, whom you serve"
