The last two verses sum it up quite nicely: "Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter: Fear God, and keep his commandments: for this is the whole duty of man. For God shall bring every work into judgment, with every secret thing, whether it be good, or whether it be evil. (Summary by GabrielleC)

The final book of the Holy Scriptures describes a dramatic, often terrifying vision by John, who may or may not have been the same John who was an apostle to Jesus Christ. A prisoner on the island of Patmos, John sees the unveiling of Christ as He really is, through colorful and haunting symbols depicting the trials and tribulations of the saints of God, as well as the coming New Jerusalem. This book is believed to have been written this way as a kind of "secret code" for Christians sufferin ...
Esther appears in the Bible as a woman of deep piety, faith, courage, patriotism, and caution, combined with resolution; a dutiful daughter to her adopted father, docile and obedient to his counsels, and anxious to share the king’s favour with him for the good of the Jewish people. That she was raised up as an instrument in the hand of God to avert the destruction of the Jewish people, and to afford them protection and forward their wealth and peace in their captivity, is manifest from the S ...

The Book of Isaiah is one of the Major Prophets in the Old Testament. Jews and Christians consider the Book of Isaiah a part of their Biblical canon. Christians believe that Isaiah prophesied the virgin birth of Jesus Christ (Isaiah 7:14, KJV): "Behold, a virgin shall conceive, and bear a son, and shall call his name Immanuel." Many of the New Testament teachings of Jesus refer to the book of Isaiah. Gregory of Nyssa (c. 335–395), believes that the Prophet Esaias (Isaiah) "knew more perfectl ...

The Second Epistle of Paul to the Thessalonians, often referred to as Second Thessalonians and written 2 Thessalonians, is a book from the New Testament of the Christian Bible.The traditional view is that the second epistle to the Thessalonians was probably written from Corinth not many months after the first.

The Book of Job, memorably conceived of by C G Jung as the story of one man's struggle to make conscious the undifferentiated contents of the unconscious, is in its own terms an intensive study of the age old problem of undeserved suffering at the hands of an all-wise, aii-good, all-powerful God. Seen by some as a prefiguration of the crucifixion and ultimate resurrection of Jesus Christ, it is for all of us the intensely poetic story of a soul in pain, reaching out for its final redemption. ...
The First Epistle of Paul to the Thessalonians, usually referred to simply as First Thessalonians and often written 1 Thessalonians, is a book from the New Testament of the Christian Bible.

The book of Proverbs is referred to as wisdom literature along with several others: the book of Job, Ecclesiastes, the Song of Solomon, and certain Psalms, known as wisdom psalms. Throughout Proverbs, wisdom (or the wise person) is compared and contrasted with foolishness (or the fool).

Wisdom is held up as something worth effort to attain and the reader is told ...

Another major theme in Ephesians is the keeping of Christ's body (that ...
Deuteronomy is the fifth book of the Hebrew Bible, and of the Jewish Torah/Pentateuch.

The book consists of three sermons or speeches delivered to the Israelites by Moses on the plains of Moab, shortly before they ente ...
Paul wrote this letter to the Galatians to warn them of how they were changing their belief of the gospel. They were subtly starting to believe that they must finish in the flesh what was begun in the Spirit. They had forgotten the simplicity of the gospel. The Galatian church had been infected with "another gospel." The Letter to the Galatians is the Apostle Paul's antidote. They had been led to believe that what was begun in the Spirit was to be perfected through the flesh. They had been l ...
