In the Word

As we continue our two year program of reading through Today's Light Bible,

here are the answers to last weeks questions (Colossians 1 through 1 Thessalonians 3):


The Apostle Paul warns the Colossians about trying to submit to a bunch of man-made rules in connection with their faith. While these rules may seem good what does Paul say they lack?

 

Paul points out that these rules have the appearance of wisdom they lack any value in restraining sensual indulgence (Colossians 2:20-23).



As Paul writes to the Thessalonians in what way did the believers in Thessalonica imitate the churches in Judea?

 

The Thessalonians were imitators of the churches in Judea in that they suffered at the hands of the people of their own country, just as the Christian churches in Judea suffered at the hands of the Jews (1 Thessalonians 2:14).

 


Our Bible reading continues with Week 94: 1 Thessalonians 4 through 1 Timothy 2.

 

What tool did God use when he called chose the Thessalonians to be saved through the work of the Holy Spirit?


As Paul writes to Timothy what trustworthy saying, that deserves full acceptance, does Paul proclaim about Jesus (a saying that applies to both Paul and us)?
