Pauls First Preaching Trip (1)

13:1-41 for God sending Paul and Barnabas to preach the truth to Gentiles.

God had let Gentiles be ignorant for 4000 years. He had given His word only to Israel (Ps 147:19-20). But the great mystery of godliness included the gospel going to Gentiles (I Tim 3:16). From Antioch in Syria God sent Paul and Barnabas on a 1500-mile preaching trip.

Pauline Priority in Ephesians

2/7/19 PM

This epistle has good, glorious doctrine, but it goes much farther and higher than that.

Converted Arminians can be infatuated with election and predestination in chapter 1 and regeneration in chapter 2 to the neglect of the spiritual emphasis. The Pauline emphasis is inspired - we ought to heed it with great care. The church at Ephesus slighted it to their ruin.
