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.

What Bible Study are you doing right now?

Recommended Posts

Right now my PWOC group are doing the Restless Bible Study.

 

http://www.jennieallen.com/studies/restless/

 

So far I'm really enjoying it.

 

 

 

Here's a bit of information about the study - if you're in a PWOC group I would really recommend it! It's been enlightening so far.

 

Would love to hear what your Bible Study group is doing right now!

We are just reading Ephesians. Continuing with Chapter 2. We average about 3-4 weekly lessons per chapter. Ephesians 1 and 2 tends to have a lot that people need to talk about.

Ephesians definitely has a lot of meaty discussion topics! One of my favorite verses is from Ephesians Chapter 2!

 

Ephesians 2:4-5 “But God, being rich in mercy, because of the great love with which He loved us, even when we were dead in our trespasses, made us alive together with Christ—by grace you have been saved—“

 

Hope you are enjoying your study, and getting a lot out of it :)

Hey! It was so lovely to read your comments and understand how determined my brothers and sisters are about studying this holy book. I want to make a step deeper into the text and symbols. I have my bachelor thesis presentation soon, so I could have a chance to be accepted to the master program. And while writing my master thesis, I really want to do my research about the Bible. Can’t lie that I’m going to do it all on my own, because I’m going to cooperate with service which helped me to write my essay before. I know how professional they are, and I’m sure my work will get much better with their help. I want it to be perfect!

I started Daniel a few weeks ago...... and opps !..I let it go...... But I will never understand the book of Revelation without first knowing Daniel thoroughly !

So I'm back in Daniel ,determined to learn it entirely before I even think of taking on the book of Revelation.  Matt

Hey @Matthew Duvall 

 

The acronyms @Just Mike used probably stand for something like the following:

 

PWOC = Protestant Women of the Chapel? 

 

SS = Sacred Scripture? Selected Scripture? Scripture Selection?

 

If if not I too am very curious as to their definitions.

 What would that be?

In case your post is directed to me, it would be:

 

Matthew 28:1-10 says that when Mary Magdalene went to the tomb she was told by an angel that the Messiah had risen and would be seen in Galilee. Matthew then says she ran "with great joy" to tell the disciples and while on the way that she met the Messiah (this occurred before she got to the disciples).

However, John 20:1 and 2 say that when she came to the tomb and didn’t find the Messiah there, that she ran to the disciples and told them that He had been taken away and that she didn’t know where He was. In Matthew she knew where He was (or at least had been) and where He would be, but in John she didn’t.

I think it woukd be informative to see the introductory notes of Matthew 28 by Albert Barnes.

https://www.studylight.org/commentaries/bnb/matthew-28.html

 

 

 I would also look for "An Examination of the Alleged Contradictions in the Resurrection Narratives" by John Ankerberg.  I can not access the webs site (I am in China and they seem to enjoy blocking such things).
