The People of the Kingdom

(Category 15 of 16)

Explore with us the origins and development of this fascinating biblical topic, and how it offers us a model for engaging the Scriptures in our own day.

Qualifications of Overseers


1 This is a faithful saying: If a man desires the position of a 1bishop, he desires a good work.
2 A bishop then must be blameless, the husband of one wife, temperate, sober-minded, of good behavior, hospitable, able to teach;
3 not 1given to wine, not violent, 2not greedy for money, but gentle, not quarrelsome, not 3covetous;
4 one who rules his own house well, having his children in submission with all reverence
5 (for if a man does not know how to rule his own house, how will he take care of the church of God?);
6 not a 1novice, lest being puffed up with pride he fall into the same condemnation as the devil.
7 Moreover he must have a good testimony among those who are outside, lest he fall into reproach and the asnare of the devil.

Qualifications of Deacons

8 Likewise deacons must be reverent, not double-tongued, anot given to much wine, not greedy for money,
9 holding the 1mystery of the faith with a pure conscience.
10 But let these also first be tested; then let them serve as deacons, being found blameless.
11 Likewise, their wives must be reverent, not 1slanderers, temperate, faithful in all things.
12 Let deacons be the husbands of one wife, ruling their children and their own houses well.
13 For those who have served well as deacons aobtain for themselves a good standing and great boldness in the faith which is in Christ Jesus.

The Great Mystery

14 These things I write to you, though I hope to come to you shortly;
15 but if I am delayed, I write so that you may know how you ought to conduct yourself in the house of God, which is the church of the living God, the pillar and 1ground of the truth.
16 And without controversy great is the 1mystery of godliness:

aGod2 was manifested in the flesh, bJustified in the Spirit, cSeen by angels, dPreached among the Gentiles,

page 1045

eBelieved on in the world, fReceived up in glory.

The Great Apostasy


1 Now the Spirit 1expressly says that in latter times some will depart from the faith, giving heed ato deceiving spirits and doctrines of demons,
2 aspeaking lies in hypocrisy, having their own conscience bseared with a hot iron,
3 forbidding to marry, and commanding to abstain from foods which God created to be received with thanksgiving by those who believe and know the truth.
4 For every creature of God is good, and nothing is to be refused if it is received with thanksgiving;
5 for it is 1sanctified by the word of God and prayer.

A Good Servant of Jesus Christ

6 If you instruct the brethren in these things, you will be a good minister of Jesus Christ, anourished in the words of faith and of the good doctrine which you have carefully followed.
7 But areject profane and old wives’ fables, and bexercise yourself toward godliness.
8 For abodily exercise profits a little, but godliness is profitable for all things, bhaving promise of the life that now is and of that which is to come.
9 This is a faithful saying and worthy of all acceptance.
10 For to this end 1we both labor and suffer reproach, because we trust in the living God, awho is the Savior of all men, especially of those who believe.
11 These things command and teach.

Take Heed to Your Ministry

12 Let no one 1despise your youth, but be an aexample to the believers in word, in conduct, in love, 2in spirit, in faith, in purity.
13 Till I come, give attention to reading, to exhortation, to 1doctrine.
14 aDo not neglect the gift that is in you, which was given to you by prophecy bwith the laying on of the hands of the eldership.
15 Meditate on these things; give yourself entirely to them, that your progress may be evident to all.
16 Take heed to yourself and to the doctrine. Continue in them, for in doing this you will save both yourself and those who hear you.

The Assurance of God’s Saving Work

To the Chief Musician. A Psalm of David.

1 MAY the LORD answer you in the day of trouble; May the name of the God of Jacob 1defend you;
2 May He send you help from the sanctuary, And strengthen you out of Zion;
3 May He remember all your offerings, And accept your burnt sacrifice. Selah

4 May He grant you according to your heart’s desire, And afulfill all your 1purpose.

7 Some trust in chariots, and some in ahorses; But we will remember the name of the LORD our God.
8 They have bowed down and fallen; But we have risen and stand upright.

9 Save, LORD! May the King answer us when we call.
