Exploring The Bible

16. New Testament

Colossians--A.D. 60-62

 

G'day and welcome to our series, "Exploring the Bible" This is also the title of our latest book available on Amazon by clicking here or visiting PulpTheology.com

Key Verses:

  • Colossians 2:9-10
  • Colossians 3:1-3

 

Paul is in prison as he writes this too. He writes to believers that are growing in spiritual maturity. His major thrust is toward their continued growth, even in the face of opposition.

Paul stresses the pre-eminence of Jesus, the Christian’s relationship to him and his own divinely given function in God’s purpose. Paul warns them about false teachers and discusses the Christian's life with Jesus, and daily life in various settings. Again, most of what he says is remarkably upbeat. It shows the power of the gospel and the Holy Spirit in one’s life.

Exploring The Bible

15. New Testament

1 Thessalonians--A.D. 51

 

G'day and welcome to our series, "Exploring the Bible" This is also the title of our latest book available on Amazon by clicking here or visiting PulpTheology.com

Key Verses:

  • 1 Thessalonians 3:12-13
  • 1 Thessalonians 4:16-18

 

This is probably the first letter of Paul’s that we have. Paul is unable to revisit this new group of believers in Thessalonica who are under attack so he has to encourage them by writing this letter. He commences with some personal reflections and continues on to teach, offer stability, console and encourage.

They have remained faithful to Jesus during affliction and persecution. Paul exhorts them to excel even more. Paul also makes his most detailed statement about the coming again of the Lord.

13. New Testament

1 Timothy--A.D. 62-64

 

G'day and welcome to our series, "Exploring the Bible" This is also the title of our latest book available on Amazon by clicking here or visiting PulpTheology.com

Key Verses:

  • 1 Timothy 3:16

This and the following three letters are all addressed to one person rather than a church.

He instructs Timothy about life and ministry and about the organization, function, and edification of the church.

Timothy is encouraged to counter with sound doctrine any false teaching particularly in regards to the Mosaic Law, to develop Church leaders and encourage godly Christian living.
