Biblical Passages I Never Tire of Studying

Exo 34:6-7 NET. The LORD passed by before him and proclaimed: “The LORD, the LORD, the compassionate and gracious God, slow to anger, and abounding in loyal love and faithfulness, (7) keeping loyal love for thousands, forgiving iniquity and transgression and sin. But he by no means leaves the guilty unpunished, responding to the transgression of fathers by dealing with children and children’s children, to the third and fourth generation.”

Php 2:5-11 NET. You should have the same attitude toward one another that Christ Jesus had, (6) who though he existed in the form of God did not regard equality with God as something to be grasped, (7) but emptied himself by taking on the form of a slave, by looking like other men, and by sharing in human nature. (8) He humbled himself, by becoming obedient to the point of death — even death on a cross! (9) As a result God exalted him and gave him the name that is above every name, (10) so that at the name of Jesus every knee will bow — in heaven and on earth and under the earth — (11) and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord to the glory of God the Father.

Col 1:12-20 NET.  giving thanks to the Father who has qualified you to share in the saints’ inheritance in the light. He delivered us from the power of darkness and transferred us to the kingdom of the Son he loves, in whom we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins. He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation,  for all things in heaven and on earth were created by him — all things, whether visible or invisible, whether thrones or dominions, whether principalities or powers — all things were created through him and for him.    He himself is before all things and all things are held together in him. (18) He is the head of the body, the church, as well as the beginning, the firstborn from among the dead, so that he himself may become first in all things.  (19) For God was pleased to have all his fullness dwell in the Son (20) and through him to reconcile all things to himself by making peace through the blood of his cross — through him, whether things on earth or things in heaven.

Longer selections include the Sermon on the Mount (Matt 5-7), the Leeters to the Seven Churches of Asia (Rev 2-3), and numerous chapters of Isaiah and the Gospel of John.

How about you? Any particular favorites?

  1. Chuck: I too have, and like the NET Bible. I have the black genuine leather. It is just a good tool for biblical study.

    Geez, my list of favorite texts and sections, would be rather eclectic, based upon what I am thinking and doing at the moment and time. I am a certain “biblicist”, though I am an Anglican. I actually read and study my Bible! (As you know I like and read Bullinger!) 😉 Though of course I read many others, that are very different, too. I have spent years reading, thinking and studying Paul’s Romans. I am a classic “Paulinist”, in the full sense! I think one major thing I have learned from St. Paul, is that the spiritual and interior life, must seek to run with our intellectual life! Carnal just plagues us all, in some measure! It is not just the 20-30 crowd! Though they have been dumbed down by I Phones, and X-Box’s, etc. I don’t do X-Box! 😉

  2. I use the NET because I like it and because it has that very generous usage policy.

    A biblicist? You mean you’re not like the Catholic priest who has been known to say, “Look to your left, look to your right. Do they have bibles?They’re not Catholic.”

    I sell Xboxes. The customer base alone is enough to make me never own one.

    That said, I do like my Amazon Instant Video.

    The world is too much with us, as the Apostle John would doubtless say.

    • I have a cell phone, but I really hardly use it, save for messages. Told ya I am a “fossil”! Even when I am doing chaplain duties, I use the land phone in the hospital, if I can.

      My youngest son has the X-Box, and of course does it, mostly military games.

      So “you” sell them, interesting. I guess your something of the “man” for many in this generation?
