Today, we get to see a different side of Paul. In his first letter to the Corinthians, Paul is a sledgehammer, whacking away at one problem after another. In Galatians, he's like a furnace, sparks of righteous anger flying from his pen.

In Philippians, Paul is a poet. In 1 Timothy, he's a mentor. For more on these two seemingly different letters and what connects them, watch today’s video…

Today we'll read pages 211-226 from Philippians and 1 Timothy.  


Happy reading,

Covenant Connection: We Read the Bible Charitably

Taken from the Covenant resource, “Exploring God’s Word” written by Nancy Gordon and adapted by Steve Burger.

We read Scripture charitably with regard to differing interpretations on matters not central to our core beliefs. “Be completely humble and gentle; be patient, bearing with one another in love” (Ephesians 4:2). The Covenant’s emphasis on “life together” in Christ as the unifying bond has profoundly shaped our understanding of both faith and Scripture. This commitment has historically kept Covenanters united in times when it would have been easier to divide over such issues as baptism, atonement, or the nature of the inspiration of Scripture. While a variety of views about Scripture has always been present in the Covenant, two things are clear: we do not waver on the authority of Scripture, nor do we accept explanations that do not do justice to the character of Scripture.
