Part 2 of 3 – The example of Ehud

Ehud – A type of Christ

In our first study we considered the similarities between the spiritual condition of Israel in the days of Ehud and the days of Jesus. We saw that the same problems challenge God’s people as they now await His kingdom to be set up on the earth. We now look at the details provided in Judges regarding Ehud and the victory of deliverance that God brought about through him.

Ehud the Deliverer

Be ye holy; for I am holy

Sunday, 11th June 2023

Readings: Judges 9; Isaiah 35; 1 Peter 1

In our reading in 1 Peter 1:16 we read, “Be ye holy; for I am holy”. Holiness. What is it?  What does it mean?  Why do we need to be holy?  The word in the Greek has the idea of sacred, physically pure, morally blameless or religious, ceremonially consecrated.  Peter is quoting from Leviticus 11:45: “For I am the LORD that bringeth you up out of the land of Egypt, to be your God: ye shall therefore be holy, for I am holy.”

What exactly is faith?  We are told in Hebrews 11:1 that it is “…the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.”  This word “substance” seems to be an old-fashioned translation of the original word, and it literally means ‘what stands under’.

God and Evil

Thursday, 1st June 2023

Reading: Amos 3                                                                         

On 6th February, 2023, a powerful 7.8 magnitude earthquake and a series of strong aftershocks devastated southeast Turkey and northwest Syria. At the time of writing, the death toll is over 44,000 and continues to rise. There were over 87,000 injuries and 47,000 buildings have been destroyed or damaged. Hundreds of thousands of people have been displaced across a region already affected by turmoil from 12-year conflict in Syria and an ongoing refugee crisis.

Finding Grace to Help in Time of Need

Monday, 29th May 2023
We may be familiar with the popular hymn ‘Amazing Grace’. The opening verse reads: “Amazing grace how sweet the sound, that saved a wretch like me; I once was lost, but now I'm found, was blind but now I see”. It was penned in the late 1700s by John Newman. Newman’s understanding of grace was that grace saved, that is, it was intrinsically tied to his salvation, not just a nice gift. That makes grace amazing indeed. This principle is supported in scripture and hopefully will serve to elevate our own thoughts when we consider what our needs are, what God’s grace might look like, and how we can find it.

The Epistles to Timothy and Titus

Sunday, 28th May 2023

Readings: Joshua 14; Isaiah 19; Titus

The letters Paul wrote to Timothy and Titus are known as the pastoral epistles. They give guidance concerning the care of ecclesias and qualifications for elders. The work of Timothy was concerned with the ecclesia in Ephesus whilst that of Titus was the strengthening of ecclesias in Crete.

Paul and Jonah (Part 2 of 2)

Monday, 22nd May 2023

In Part 1, we said there are interesting resonances between the stories of Jonah and the Apostle Paul. These particularly related to their sea voyages. There are some points of similarity and some points of difference. All are fascinating. First, a clarification – Paul writes: “Three times I was beaten with rods; once I was stoned; three times I was shipwrecked; a night and a day I have been in the deep” (2 Corinthians 11:25). Although Paul says he was shipwrecked three times, only one occasion is described for us. This one then, is of particular significance. Before we look at that, there is another point of interest in the narrative sequence within Acts.

Overcoming Evil With Good

Sunday, 21st May 2023
In our first reading for today in Joshua 7, we understand that the sin of an individual can have an effect beyond just the individual.  Thirty-six men of Israel were smitten at Ai on account of Achan’s sin; it had affected the wider nation and Achan himself would not appear to even have been one of those smitten in that incident. 

Paul and Jonah (Part 1of 2)

Monday, 15th May 2023

This might not seem an obvious coupling of Bible characters. Paul and Barnabas maybe, Paul and Silas; but Paul and Jonah? Some individuals we encounter in Scripture share similar characteristics because, as types of Christ, they inevitably follow the same pattern and have many things in common. But others are not so obviously linked. With Paul and Jonah there is no expectation of a shared set of characteristics. However, whilst reading of the shipwreck of the Apostle Paul, on one occasion, a number of things resonated with the account of Jonah’s voyage as he tried to flee to Tarshish. There seemed to be significant similarities and contrasts between the two stories.
