Why would God adopt us in the Son? ‘Make me a tabernacle’ commanded God and what he set about was a shadow of fellowship that existed eternally. It is called the everlasting covenant. It is valid because of the Law, Truth or the Word.John1:1-b

The eternal Word (Ps.119:89) and everlasting covenant existed before the worlds were founded. The logos concept (John 1:1) makes the law as embodied in person. ‘The Word was God’. In the same chapter John says ‘”For the law was given by Moses, but grace and truth came by Jesus Christ(John 1:17)”. What is Truth or Law if it cannot be shown what it is? For this reason Truth is revealed as the Word. Consider this:”….their sound went into all the earth, and their words unto the ends of the world(Ro.10:17-18). There is no place where Truth can be excluded.

Truth is God, a Spirit. Jews consider a monotheistic God. But do they really understand its implication? The Lord Almighty in expression holds Father Son relationship. The Holy Spirit sets the same God in a manner man can understand. The same relationship extends also in their nature. As a Father God…

All knowledge is passed from person to person. An apt pupil absorbs not only knowledge but also the life of teacher who amassed it from precepts and examples of his teacher.

His life and death must have been inspirational that we have many accounts of the man. But philosophy in the hands of man never remains pure since he has to prove its excellence with example, starting with his own. Alexander of Macedon had Aristotle for a teacher but it did not make him tame his binge drinking or immoderate passions. His thirst for glory consumed him as we read of Themistocles who could not sleep for the trophies Miltiades had won against the Persians. There…

Faith is personal. Lot could not help to the faith Abraham his uncle had. When God called out Abraham his nephew had faith in him and so followed. It did not do much good to him as we shall see later when they parted company. Lot made a bad choice while Abraham believed God and it was accounted to him for righteousness-b

Paul or Saul did not become an Apostle by his own will or preference. In the church of Antioch when the Spirit considered the names there were many others perhaps with better references but  ‘As they ministered to the Lord, and fasted, the Holy Ghost said, Separate me Barnabas and Saul for the work whereunto I have called them(Ac.13:10)’.

St Paul as an apostle was to be a steward in the same sense as Adam was. He was to labour for the wellbeing of creatures,-birds of the air, beasts of burden and of fields, creeping things and marine creatures. They were all in his safekeeping. Adam could not have remained disengaged in his tasks since he was the one who named each one of them There is a moral responsibility translating the mind of God who is a Spirit. Likewise Paul as an Apostle stood in the breach between God…
