“And ye (Colossian believers) are complete in him (in Christ)... 11 In whom also ye are circumcised with the circumcision made without hands, in putting off the body of the sins of the flesh by the circumcision of Christ:” Colossians 2:10-11 (KJV)
A friend asks: “Have you heard the good news?” and you reply: “What good news?” Naturally! Not all good news is the same. The word “Gospel” simply means “the good news.”
Yet today, few people ask this question, “What gospel” when they read in the Bible the phrase “the gospel.”
Below is a chart comparing the key characteristics of the two programs of God that exist in The Bible.
The Bible can best be divided, and should be divided by us as we study, noting these two programs of God.
2 Tim. 2:15 Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.
"Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, Rightly Dividing the Word of Truth." 2 Timothy 2:15 (KJV)
Noted above is 2 Timothy 2:15 which, if followed, is the key to understanding "THE WORD OF TRUTH." If this principle of paramount importance is ignored or misunderstood, the Word of Truth becomes a "word of inaccuracy."
