Christian Fellowship

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.

Textual Criticism of the Bible (Lexham Methods Series)Cover of Textual Criticism of the Bible

Amy Anderson and Wendy Widder

Lexham, 2018

If you work at all with the Bible’s original languages you inevitably need to understand at least something about those pesky variants.

If you feel weak in this area, this is the place to start. Clear, accessible, and even practical.
