The struggles of life choke out our desire and occasionally even our ability to live out our Godly calling as wives. We look to the world to see how to fix our marriages and how to be wives, and our marriages end in divorce or we live in strife. We need to look to the Bible and what God has to say on the subject in order to define what a Biblical wife is. While there are many things that God has called us to, I have identified just 5 of the many qualities of a Biblical wife. Man are called to lead and provide for their family and we are called to care for our home and our family. This is not to say that women should only be in the home, nor is it to say that they should never work outside of the home.

Evidence from the Byzantine tradition might include readings from any or all of the following uncial codices: I cite minuscule codices individually only if one contains an unusual or virtually unique reading, which is not at all often. But I do cite the evidence from the two following named minuscule families: These two members are 1 itself and Family 1 dates to century X or later. Family 13 dates to century XI or later.
I know Latin, but not any of the other versional languages. My policy is to cite the versions only if A I am personally familiar with the versional variants or B at least one of the versions offers a variant that shows up in only few if any our extant Greek manuscripts. My order of priority amongst the versions basically matches the order in the heading.
Latin, Syriac, and Coptic are the primary versions, while Armenian, Ethiopic, and Slavonic are secondary. The Diatessaron of Tatian, essentially a cross between a version and a patristic witness, I would place into the primary category. My policy is to cite the church fathers only if A I am personally familiar with the patristic variants or B at least one of the fathers offers a variant that shows up in only few if any our extant manuscripts.
I wish to stress that I am employing this limited patristic policy only because I know my present limitations, not because I do not value the patristic testimony.

Found in December , this partial text consists of a small vellum leaf 8.

The opening seven lines of the text introduce the reader to the end of an address by Jesus – consistently referred to as “the Savior” – in which he warns his hearers against the sort of overconfidence which leads to punishment both in this life and in the next.

Yet knowing when to use both italics and quotation marks is useful and important for writers. The cleaner the manuscript, the fewer problems it will be perceived to have. To start off, I will point out that there is no need to underline anything in a novel manuscript. Underlining may be required for school or college writing projects or other purposes. Without underlining, the choices are italics, quotation marks, and unmarked or plain text.
Most words in your manuscript will be roman text—unchanged by italics—and, apart from dialogue, will not be enclosed by quotation marks. Yet sometimes writers are confused about italics and quotation marks, especially when dealing with named entities. Simple names need only be capitalized—no other marks are necessary. There are exceptions, of course. Capitalize names of people, places, and things. This means that Bob, Mr.

Statue in Florence, Italy Matthew, Mark and Luke together are called the synoptic “same eye” gospels. This is due to the close relationship between the three, as all three tell many of the same stories, often in the same way and with the same words. Of the verses in Mark, Matthew reproduces of them and Luke reproduces of them. Of the 55 verses in Mark but not Matthew, 31 are present in Luke. The accounts are so similar that even a little parenthesis -“he said top the paralytic”- occurs in all three accounts in exactly the same place.
There are three fundamental observations about the synoptic gospels that all seem true, but on the surface, they are not consistent and at least one of them must be false.
And they went away And they went out As Steve Carr observes, the writer of Mark states that the disciples were to be met by a man carrying a pitcher of water. And when it was evening he came with the twelve. And as they were at table eating, Jesus said, “Truly, I say to you, one of you will betray me, one who is eating with me.

By Jason Balmet Feb 26 Being a husband is a high calling, and should be treated as such. It is a wonderful role with many benefits and joys that go along with it. But being a husband also comes with a lot of responsibilities. It takes a character that has been molded by God and is in the process of continual improvement in order to successfully juggle the responsibilities and expectations that God has placed on husbands.
One of the most common complaints wives have of their husbands is that they are not consistent with their roles and responsibilities within their marriage. Within the marriage relationship, that is a lot. As husbands, God has given us a wife, children, money, time, possessions, and many more things that we are to steward faithfully. Love I am not referring to romantic feelings, or sex, or physical attraction, which are often thought of as synonymous with love.
They are all wonderful things to have in a marriage, but none of them are unconditional. It is always thinking of the other person, which in this case is the wife. Leadership God makes it clear in the Bible that the husband is to be the leader in the marriage relationship. This is not worldly leadership, typified by the CEO of a company, or a military general, but Christ-like leadership, as modeled by Jesus in the scriptures.

Book of Jude Brad Anderson: Like us, Jude lived in an age which preferred toleration to truth, and regarded all religions as equally valid aspects of the quest for a supreme being.

Greetings to all and welcome to our website for The Unity of the Spirit. December 25, Christmas I have recently posted the teaching from our December fellowship entitled: Christ’s Birth – God’s Faithfulness which you can access here link. As Christians all over the world celebrate the birth of the Jesus Christ, this teaching is a reminder of how the first-century believers understood and interpreted this event. They saw it as the keeping of a promise God had made to his people.
May you remember this today and everyday as you live for him with confidence that he will keep his promise to deliver his people from darkness and establish his kingdom forever! For we are aware that every day of life, with all the beauty and joy that it can bring, is a gift from our heavenly Father. But for those days that bring us face-to-face with the perils and ills of this age, we find strength to grapple with the challenges as we call out to God.
And so we PRAY! With grateful hearts we encourage, build up and inspire each other, realizing that each day, whether carefree or difficult, brings us one day closer to the return of Christ and our being with him forever. May we all turn our hearts to God, today and everyday, filled with a knowledge of his purposes in Christ and empowered to follow Paul’s instructions to the Thessalonians:
