2110-07 Note to a Friend SLIDE

After all of these years and the multitude of technological ways that we receive communication, there is still something exciting about getting a note in the mail from a friend. That’s right…snail mail, hand written…nothing like it! (Read more about the importance of letter writing here.) How much more important that note would be if it was written under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit! The New Testament is full of such letters.

I am excited to announce that today we are beginning a brand new series of studies from the one page letter we now know as Philemon. It is a note written from one friend to another, and it points us to the love and forgiveness found in Christ alone. God is the God of second chances and real hope!

This brief note is full of doctrinal truth and practical help for us all. I would like to encourage you to walk through this little book with us over the next few days. You can subscribe to Enjoying the Journey on any podcast player or listen each day at Thank you for studying the Scriptures with us!

(Our last series, Family Time, along with all of the other series are archived here.)

The ruins of the Castle of the Servant in Jordan. The historian Josephus wrote that the dynasty of Tobiah built a castle on the east side of the Jordan River, in Ammon. He specifically wrote in the Antiquities of the Jews about the carved "beasts of gigantic size" visible here on the left corner of the structure. The beasts on the right side are not as well-preserved. The structure dates to the centuries after Nehemiah, however it shows the power and prestige of this family of "servants."

The Mountain of the House, also known as the Temple Mount, with the Mount of Olives in the background.
Some of the steps in the foreground date from the Second Temple period, and would have been the steps Jesus ascended. Archeologists have uncovered around 300 baptismal pools along the steps leading up to the Temple. They would be convenient for baptizing 3,000 people!
The Hebrew word ruakh can mean either spirit, wind, or breath. The Breath of God, the Spirit of God, and the Wind of God are all understood to be cognates.
