Seen by angels, 1 Timothy 3:16d

The word aggelos, or angels, simply means “a messenger,” or “a delegate.” It is used in the New Testament elsewhere to speak of humans. However, despite this being the case, this is most certainly speaking of the heavenly host, not earthly humans.Read the rest

…Justified in the Spirit, 1 Timothy 3:16c

And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness: 1 Timothy 3:16a

Due to the length of 1 Timothy 3:16, it will be divided up into several readings.

…but if I am delayed, I write so that you may know how you ought to conduct yourself in the house of God, which is the church of the living God, the pillar and ground of the truth… 1 Timothy 3:15

Paul had just written that he hoped to come to Ephesus shortly, but now he notes this may not be the case.Read the rest
