Epistles – Section 3

Epistles – Section 3. Paul put Titus in charge of the church in Crete and gave him this letter of instruction on how to do the work there. The letter to Philemon from Paul asked him to take back his runaway slave, Onesimus, who had met Paul and was converted to Christ. The author of Hebrews wrote in order to encourage and energize the Christian readers into a viable and active faith in Jesus. It appears they had begun to lose heart and were in danger of allowing unbelief to grow.

James is a book that speaks of works, It teaches that we are saved by faith only, but saving faith is never alone. It is always accompanied by good works. 1 Peter’s purpose is to strengthen and comfort those believers who are called upon to bear severe testing as a trial of their faith. 2 Peter warns against church leaders allowing sin in the church for the sake of monetary gain. Sin will bring blindness, and they will no longer look for the Lord.

1, 2, and 3 John speak about fellowship, to not belittle the deity of Jesus, to live righteously by faith, to love one another, to resist false teachers, and to hold fast to the faith. Jude is devoted to the great apostasy of the last days and the conditions before the apocalyptic judgments fall. It brings to a climax all the teaching regarding apostasy. Revelation is a book of prophecy containing descriptions of unique animals, angels, demons, beasts, harlots, and brides. Christ remains a central figure throughout the books record of the ages. “Blessed is he that reads ands hear it and keeps those things that are written.”
