The Least, First

Upcoming: All 4 considered together for 2.19.06

with 2 comments

First obvious thought here: The gospel and the NT passages listed below are both about whether the words of the speaker can be trusted: Can those present trust that Jesus really has authority to forgive (for which he offers physical healing as proof); and, can those to whom Paul has previously written trust that he means what he says and isn’t shifting back and forth (for which he offers his track record with them as proof: they knew it before, it still must be so).

Put another way, they’re both about whether the speaker has God-given authenticity, or, perhaps, legitimacy.

See Sharon’s and my comments on O.T. for a bit more about this …

  1. Time is 1:15am Saturday. The message is all on paper. I’m all ready asleep. Thank you every one. I read and re read your comments and some turned out to be gifts just for me and others made their way on to the paper as well. I am truly blessed. Please pray for spit tomorrow. Yes spit. It is when my mouth gets dry that I start with the ‘umms’.

  2. Would this suggest music about the trustworthiness of God? About the witness of the Spirit? About knowing Christ in me? About the reality of forgiveness? Take a look at the “Music” tab (above) and see if ideas come to mind.
