1 Kings 2:27 ‘That he might fulfill the word of Jehovah.’

1 king 2 27

1 Kings 2:27 'That he might fulfill the word of Jehovah.' And unto Abiathar the priest said the king, Get thee to Anathoth, unto thine own fields; for thou art worthy of death: but I will not at this time put thee to death, because thou barest the ark of the Lord Jehovah before David my father, and because thou wast afflicted in all wherein my father was afflicted. So ...

Mark 16:18 ‘They shall take up serpents, and if they drink any deadly thing.

Mark 16-18

Mark 16:18 'They shall take up serpents, and if they drink any deadly thing. This portion of the gospel according to Mark, that is, Mark 16:9-20, is one of a few contested passages in our bibles, and also in the annals of textual criticism. It has been under the microscope of this form of criticism for a good number of years. It should be noted that textual criticism ...

Galatians 1:7 ‘There are some that trouble you, and would pervert the gospel of Christ.’

Galatians 1-7

This Week's Focus Passage: Galatians 1:7 'There are some that trouble you, and would pervert the gospel of Christ.'

Psalm 110 ‘Jehovah saith unto my Lord, Sit thou at my right hand.’

Psalm 110

This Week's Focus Passage: Psalm 110 'Jehovah saith unto my Lord, Sit thou at my right hand.'

2 Corinthians 5:20 ‘We are ambassadors therefore on behalf of Christ.’

2 cor 5-20

This Week's Focus Passage: 2 Corinthians 5:20 'We are ambassadors therefore on behalf of Christ.' What is involved in the office of an ambassador? Indeed, what is an ambassador after all? If we are called to be such, we ought to know what it is. Qatar is an oil-rich emirate on a peninsula jutting into the Persian Gulf: recently, their ambassador to the U.S., Ali Bin F...

2 Corinthians 1:3 'Father of mercies and God of all comfort.' And it came to pass, as he was praying in a certain place, that when he ceased, one of his disciples said unto him, Lord, teach us to pray, even as John also taught his disciples. And he said unto them, When ye pray, say, Father, Hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come. Give us day by day our daily bread. A...

1 Corinthians 15:3, 4 ‘According to the Scriptures.’

1-cor-15--3-4

This Week's Focus Passage: 1 Corinthians 15:3, 4 'According to the Scriptures.' As far as we were able to determine, these two verses from 1 Corinthians, chapter fifteen, are the only places in the primary English translations of the Bible, where this phrase,According to the Scriptures,is to be found. Those versions include the King James, the New King James, the Amer...

1cor611_verse_image

This Week's Focus Passage: 1 Corinthians 6:11 'And such were some of you: but ye were washed.' This is the blessed conclusion at which our apostle, Paul, arrives in his significant litany of the past lives and offences of many in the church; many who were rescued by the grace of God from the bondage they were in to these sins. Let us review the context found in verses ni...

Psalm 74:9 ‘Neither is there among us any that knoweth how long.’

Psalm74-9

Psalm 74:9 'Neither is there among us any that knoweth how long.' We may read in Luke 13:3, 5, the twice repeated asseveration of our Lord Jesus Christ, when He said to His auditory,Except ye repent, ye shall likewise perish.
