ENDNOTES


a James 3:1

a Genesis 41:9 ff

b Ezekiel 33:31-33

a It is more than coincidence that old-fashioned romance, bearing lightly the scars of reality, was laced with religious expressions like ‘she adores/idolizes him’, ‘you’re divine/heavenly’, ‘he worships the ground she walks on’, ‘a marriage made in heaven’. From another source comes the term ‘sex goddess’.

b Even in cases where no drugs were administered, many people who have been revived after clinical death have reported a sensation of floating away from their bodies toward a bright light. Their experience was too fleeting to know whether they would be considered worthy to remain forever in the presence of that light, but for our purposes, the notable thing is that although ‘bright light’ sounds impersonal, they commonly report telepathic communication and intense love emanating from that Being.

c John 3:19

a John 7:17; 2 Corinthians 3:14-16; 4:3-4; 1 Corinthians 2:4-16; 4:20; Luke 10:21

b Matthew 21:31

c Ultimately, only one Innocent ever suffered – Jesus. Though for our sakes he became man, the eternal Son of God had life independent of human ancestry. The rest of us owe our very existence to wrong-doing. If, for instance, we could trace our family tree back far enough, we would likely find a direct ancestor who was the product of rape or unlawful incest. In other words, were it not for gross wickedness we would not exist. And in our genes – our basic essence – we have our father’s eyes, our grand-father’s walk, our mother’s temper, our ancestors’ sin. Far from being innocent, we were born a product of wickedness and confirmed our guilt the first opportunity we had.

a ‘. . . present tense, which indicates continuous, persistent prayer.’ – France, p 144, confirmed by Hendriksen, p 362, Gaebelein, p 186, Amplified Bible, etc. Proof that this is exactly what Jesus meant is found in the context in which it appears in Luke (Luke 11:5-10) and further supported by his parable in Luke 18:1-8.

a Romans 12:6-8

b In 1 Corinthians 9:5, Paul speaks of remaining single in the context of not being a financial burden to the church. Had the church given him an average wage, he could have supported a family, given his children lots of attention, and still have more time for apostolic work than his part-time work allowed. To financially support a family himself, however, he would have had to double or treble his tent-making hours.

c When raising this matter in Corinthians, Paul wrote not just of himself but ‘we’ (1 Corinthians 9:11-12), a term which presumably included at least Barnabas (1 Corinthians 9:6). Probably most or all of Paul’s subsequent missionary companions did the same (and some of these apparently gained the title of apostle – Acts 14:4,14; 1 Thessalonians 2:6, note also Romans 16:7). After Pentecost, most of the original twelve apostles quickly fade from Scripture. So we know little about the financial affairs of the apostles who did not accompany Paul. We do know, however, that for Jewish rabbis to provide for themselves by means of a trade was an established theoretical ideal (Edersheim, p 189-190; Barclay (3) p 88).

c The lower figure if you usually work seventy hours a week, the higher if you work a forty-hour week. At that rate, a laborer toiling forty hours a week with no holidays, somehow spending nothing on food, clothing, shelter or anything else, would take more than thirty years to amass one talent. Moreover, if you commenced at age ten, working long hours as a weaver’s apprentice and had the misfortune to continue on that allowance, you would be approaching only the half-way mark on your fiftieth birthday.

d Luke 12:6; Unger, p 725

e In Luke’s version of the parable (Luke 19:12-27), the servants were allocated equal portions. Perhaps Luke’s version reveals the heart of God and the other (preserved in Matthew 25:16-17) describes the strategy of God. The Lord loves his children without favoritism. Or perhaps Jesus told this story once from heaven’s perspective (equal portions) and once from our human perspective. In our eyes, ministry gifts seem to vary in significance, but I don’t think God sees it that way.
