Paul study for 1/18/13
I want us to address suffering and grace a little more this week. Refresh your memory on Paul's passages on his own suffering and what they mean.
Here is part 2 of last week's assignment that we didn't even get to:
There seems to be a connection with Paul between suffering and grace; let's explore that.
Read: Romans 3:24-25, 5:8. Whose suffering is this and for what purpose?
Read: Philippians 1:29: whose suffering is this, and why?
Read: 2 Corinthians 12:7-10; what is Paul's theological conceit here?
Finally, read Philippians 3:10-11, Does this tie up the above thoughts nice and neat or make it muddier?
Also read 1Peter 3:16, just for fun.
Going deeper: Acquire Galatians
