Reading the Bible Day 314

Hi friends! Today we finish our journey through the church of Corinth. Great job! Today's reading is much the same as yesterdays with more of Paul defending himself against those who disagree with him and some final advice to the church in Corinth. Honestly not much more to say about it. Haha. Let's jump in and finish this out!


 

Scripture to Read



 

Audio Bible


 

Questions to Consider

  1. What is the "good news" of 2 Corinthians?

  2. What new things have I learned about Paul since reading it this time around?

  3. What questions am I still left with?

No commentary for today. I really can't think of anything else to add as its so similar to yesterday's reading. We'll have an overview video tomorrow for Galatians so check back for that! :)


 

Praying the Hymns


Our prayer for today is inspired by hymn 314 - In the Garden. I know for many of you this is a favorite hymn! Enjoy. :)


1. I come to the garden alone while the dew is still on the roses, and the voice I hear falling on my ear the Son of God discloses.

Refrain: And he walks with me, and he talks with me, and he tells me I am his own; and the joy we share as we tarry there, none other has ever known.

2. He speaks, and the sound of his voice, is so sweet the birds hush their singing, and the melody that he gave to me within my heart is ringing. (Refrain)

3. I’d stay in the garden with him though the night around me be falling, but he bids me go; thru the voice of woe his voice to me is calling. (Refrain)

Is this the first reference to Satan disguising himself as an angel of light? I don't remember that description being used during the 40 days that Jesus was in the wilderness and Satan attempted to tempt him.

Great observation and questioning! I did a little digging on that and it appears to me to be a figure of speech among the Christian church in Jerusalem. Peter mentions something similar in a later letter in reference to John's gospel which refers to Jesus as existing in the light. My guessing is many "divisions" of the church were beginning to form with their own interpretations who likely were seeing a chance to make a quick buck off the growing church. (False prophets looking for profit is nothing new, it existed in the OT as well..I think it was Elijah that called them out.)


Long story short I think it's similar to our expression of "Snake oil salesperson" to call…
