Before I start trekking through the book of Judges, there’s some important context in the book of Joshua. In Chapter 23, he gives very specific warnings Israel’s leaders, which, unsurprisingly enough, aren’t taken seriously enough. Therefore, be very strong to keep and to do all that is written in the Book of the Law of Moses, turning […]Read More Why Judges?
Part one is here and part two is here. Part 3: Colossians 3:1-17 I wasn’t going to write a third part but it felt a bit weird leaving my Colossians study in the middle of the letter. This post won’t be too long either, and I’ll just be summarizing thoughts for my own reference. We’ve almost seen […]Read More To the churches of Colossae … pt 3.
A continuation of part 1 here. Part 2: Colossians 2:16-23 This is a continuation from the previous passage of shifting from the hope of the gospel, I got sick halfway through writing this and I’m just pulling through to finish it. Last time, he talked about false outlets of knowledge, but this time he talks […]Read More To the churches of Colossae … pt 2.

I want to be able to finish the main body of the letter in 2/3 sessions, so it has to be […]Read More To the churches of Colossae …

We end up with a couple criteria on […]Read More Biblical Boastin’ – 2 Cor 12
You can read part one here! The last chapter left out some details so it was hard to see what was going on in the church of Corinth, if there was conflict, or what Paul was trying to accomplish in boasting. This chapter will give us some more insight; we just need to find it in this mess. Again, I tried to pick […]Read More Biblical Boastin’ – 2 Cor 11
This will be a multi-part series because after I finished writing this, I realized the next 2 Chapters discuss boasting as well. (Sorry if you don’t like Paul as much as I do LOL) One characteristic of Paul throughout the letters is his confidence! He says things with such boldness and makes very specific statements (2 […]Read More Biblical Boastin’ – 2 Cor 10
