Acts (Program #19) – The Propagation in Jerusalem, Judea, and Samaria through the Ministry of Peter’s Company (14)

But, this didn’t stop problems from creeping into their midst. Some of which remain with us even today. Stay with us for another marvelous and enlightening life study of the Bible as we probe the riches of the New Testament book of Acts.

1 Timothy (Program #10) – Dealing with the Elders

1 Timothy 5:17 says, “Let the elders who take the lead well be counted worthy of double honor, especially those who labor in word and teaching.”
But then the apostle follows in verse 19, addressing how to take care of problems in the Church. “Against an elder do not receive an accusation, except based upon two or three witnesses.” So, taking care of the administration of the local church or dealing with the elders in the church is an important issue in the New Testament that we are devoting our entire life study today from 1 Timothy.

2 Corinthians (Program #47) – Paul’s Vindication of His Apostolic Authority (2)

In the first epistle of Paul to the Corinthians, he was very bold and at times quite strong in dealing with the many problems that had risen in the church there.  Due to this, he was quite concerned about how the believers in Corinth received his word of loving discipline.  But upon hearing their open and repented heart, he began 2 Corinthians with nine very tender,intimate and pleasant chapters.  But following this, his tone once again become severe.  For in the final four chapters of the book, he is forced to make a defense, even a vindication of his apostleship.  Why did Paul, the clarion of the New Testament economy need to lower himself in such a way before this church which he himself established?   The answer may surprises but it will most definitely enlighten us.
