WEEK 9 (MAR 14TH - MAR 20TH)
This week we read Paul’s second response to the church in Corinth (2 Corinthians) along with three other more general letters (Jude, Philemon, and James).
2 Corinthians reads like a parent lecturing his adolescent children whom he loves about his frustrations with them, his concerns for them, his joys from them, his trust in them, and his expectations of them. Written by Paul, it also assures them that the gospel message, judgment, and resurrection to eternal life are real for believers in Jesus Christ.
Jude is a short letter written by Jesus’ earthly brother, Jude. He admonishes believers to be on guard against false teachers and to not give up the faith.
Philemon is a letter to a rich man whose escaped servant has become a follower of Jesus. It identifies how a believer should respond to repentant believers who have previously wronged them.
James is a believer’s attitude guide. James places emphasis on transferring the right attitude into the right action with practical helps for common temptations.
