- Dec 15, 2013passage: 1Tim 1:1-1:7
Paul, an apostle of Jesus Christ by the commandment of God our Saviour,
and Lord Jesus Christ, which is our hope; Unto Timothy, my own son
in the faith: Grace, mercy, and peace, from God our Father and Jesus
Christ our Lord. As I besought thee to abide still at Ephesus, when
I went into Macedonia, that thou mightest charge some that they teach
no other doctrine, Neither give heed to fables and endless genealogies,
which minister questions, rather than godly edifying which is in faith:
so do. Now the end of the commandment is charity out of a pure heart,
and of a good conscience, and of faith unfeigned: From which some having
swerved have turned aside unto vain jangling; Desiring to be teachers
of the law; understanding neither what they say, nor whereof they affirm.
passage: Luke 20:27-20:44
Then came to him certain of the Sadducees, which deny that there is any
resurrection; and they asked him, Saying, Master, Moses wrote unto us, If
any man's brother die, having a wife, and he die without children, that
his brother should take his wife, and raise up seed unto his brother.
There were therefore seven brethren: and the first took a wife, and
died without children. And the second took her to wife, and he died
childless. And the third took her; and in like manner the seven also:
and they left no children, and died. Last of all the woman died also.
Therefore in the resurrection whose wife of them is she? for seven
had her to wife. And Jesus answering said unto them, The children of
this world marry, and are given in marriage: But they which shall be
accounted worthy to obtain that world, and the resurrection from the
dead, neither marry, nor are given in marriage: Neither can they die any
more: for they are equal unto the angels; and are the children of God,
being the children of the resurrection. Now that the dead are raised,
even Moses shewed at the bush, when he calleth the Lord the God of
Abraham, and the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob. For he is not a
God of the dead, but of the living: for all live unto him. Then certain
of the scribes answering said, Master, thou hast well said. And after
that they durst not ask him any question at all. And he said unto them,
How say they that Christ is David's son? And David himself saith in the
book of Psalms, The LORD said unto my Lord, Sit thou on my right hand,
Till I make thine enemies thy footstool. David therefore calleth him
Lord, how is he then his son?
