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.

Ezekiel Chap 40-48?

Recommended Posts

What does one do with 9 chapters in Ezekiel (40-48) with such things as gates, inner courts, vestibules, an altar, feasts, offerings, a temple, the land, the 12 tribes etc?

Eze 40:2  In the visions of God brought he me into the land of Israel, and set me upon a very high mountain, by which was as the frame of a city on the south. 
Heb 11:10  For he looked for a city which hath foundations, whose builder and maker is God. 
Heb 12:22  But ye are come unto mount Sion, and unto the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem, and to an innumerable company of angels, 

   

Some thoughts🌼

Ezekiel 40:2 states what follows are in a vision. Of course right then that should tell us that there's gonna be various camps which either interpret the vision symbolically or literalistically.

I recommend D.A. Carson and R.T. France "New Bible Commentary" and/or a Reformation Study Bible:

Accept it as a revelation of what life on earth will be like during the Millennium.

That's my take on it, I was curious on how others here handle it.

Having read the Scriptures with out commentary at this point. 

Back to another blood sacrifice back to the blood of bulls and goats  just does not seem to be the proper thing,.  To my thinking that is a slap in the face of God concerning  He sent Christ to be THEE LAMB.

 

I will see if commentaries can change my mind. 

 

Heb 10:4  For it is not possible that the blood of bulls and of goats should take away sins. 
Heb 10:5  Wherefore when he cometh into the world, he saith, Sacrifice and offering thou wouldest not, but a body hast thou prepared me: 
Heb 10:6  In burnt offerings and sacrifices for sin thou hast had no pleasure
