Christian Fellowship

John Calvin puts forward a very simple reason why love is the greatest gift: “Because faith and hope are our own: love is diffused among others.” In other words, faith and hope benefit the possessor, but love always benefits another. In John 13:34–35 Jesus says, “A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.” Love always requires an “other” as an object; love cannot remain within itself, and that is part of what makes love the greatest gift.

Biblical Archaeology Review (BAR)?

Recommended Posts

I don't subscribe to the periodical Biblical Archaeology Review (BAR), but it is available in the office of our family doctor. I've read a bit of it whilst waiting for an appoint, or one of our children. Some of it was interesting. I asked my pastor about it and he said it was a mixed bag.

 

What do you think of this publication? Is it helpful to the believer or not worth the bother?

 

Thank you. :)

What do you think of this publication?
I have been reading it for years and enjoy it very much. I am not sure what your pastor means when he says it is "a mixed bag." Do I 100% agree with every word? No, but I rarely agree 100% agree with any publication.

I used to subscribe to it. I found a lot of helpful information in it but there were also articles written by people who clearly didn't believe the Bible was inspired by God. I agree with your pastor's assessment that it is a mixed bag. I didn't renew my subscription because I didn't think the few good articles it contained were worth the expense.

Thanks for the notes. I'll check this one out. My pastor didn't recommend I note read it, on the contrary he thought it was generally good. So, like many resources, eat the meat and spit out the bones, so to speak.
