Ephesians

Empowerment to Walk in Love for the Unity of All in Christ

Ephesians

Author: John Paul Heil

Publisher: Society of Biblical Lit

ISBN: 1589832671

This book analyzes Paul's Letter to the Ephesians and demonstrates that the Letter's implied audience heard its individual units as a rich and complex pattern of chiastic structures. It shows that, not only is the entire Letter arranged in fifteen units that function as a comprehensive chiastic structure, but that each of these fifteen units in turn exhibits its own chiastic structure. By attending carefully to the structure and rhetoric of Ephesians, this work demonstrates how the implied audience is persuaded and empowered by the progression of the Letter to “walk in love” and so contribute to the cosmic unity of all things in Christ.

Revised Edition

Pauline Parallels

The Pauline Parallels has been redesigned and revised in order to provide an improved practical tool for students seeking to understand the Pauline corpus of letters. In his letters, Paul echoes the structure of the common letter, he employs rhetorical devices, and he often repeats themes and images. The Pauline Parallels provides a ready, efficient, comprehensive way to study the letters structurally, formally, and thematically by gathering relevant passages from all the letters onto the page or folio for immediate comparison. The Pauline Parallels is the analog for the Pauline letters of a gospel parallels.The Pauline Parallels is a sequential presentation of each of the ten chief letters attributed to Paul: Romans, 1 and 2 Corinthians, Galatians, Ephesians, Philippians, Colossians, 1 and 2 Thessalonians and Philemon. Each letter is divided into sense units or paragraphs of discourse; these paragraphs, as they are designated, are numbered consecutively from the salutation of Romans to the closing remarks of Philemon. Paragraph numbers are then used as the basis of the presentation of the materials in the Pauline Parallels and function effectively in a system of cross-referencing.

God in You

Releasing the Power of the Holy Spirit in Your Life

God in You

Author: Dr. David Jeremiah

For many believers, the mystery of the Holy Spirit remains just that. God in You, now in popular trade paperback format, is the layperson's guide to this often-misunderstood member of the Trinity. Pastor David Jeremiah explores the Holy Spirit in concrete terms, leaving abstract concepts behind. Not an idea, not an influence, not some vague, mystical force, Jeremiah explains, the Holy Spirit is actually the almighty God of the universe come to live inside the believer's skin. And a clear understanding and appreciation of His attributes can ignite the passion of every Christian's walk with Christ. In this compelling, gently instructive book Jeremiah affirms, "Without [the Spirit], we're about as useful to God's kingdom as an unplugged toaster."

Christians In Their Youthful Age

The Bible says, “Remember now your Creator in the days of your youth, before the difficult days come, and the years draw near when you say, ‘I have no pleasure in them’ (Eccl.12:1). Let no one despise your youth, but be an example to the Believers in word, in conduct, in love, in spirit, in faith, in purity” (1 Tim. 4:12). The youthful age is the age of power, vigour, fervency, confidence, zeal, and passion. And these dispositions are to be used for the Glory of God. The Christian youth occupies an important place in the Heart of God. God wants to do great things through the Christian youth; He wants to show forth His Power, Wisdom, and Glory through the Christian youth. But the devil is not happy that he has lost the Christian youth from his camp and kingdom; and the devil has not lost all hope on the Christian youth; therefore he still fights hard to mislead, confuse, side-track, defile, pervert, and discourage him. But God is greater than the devil!
