…a Bible student's notes…


Sound doctrine – Let’s review a little and this time just use the phrase “sound doctrine” – you already know about the word “sound” being the same as the word, “healthy.”

Sound doctrine is what our Lord taught.   Sound doctrine is the doctrine according to godliness.

 1Ti 6:3 -“If any man teach otherwise, and consent not to wholesome (sound) words, even the words of our Lord Jesus Christ, and to the doctrine which is according to godliness;” (KJV)

1Ti 6:3 ;”If anyone advocates a different doctrine, and does not agree with sound words, those of our Lord Jesus Christ, and with the doctrine conforming to godliness,”(NASB)

 My!  Why wouldn’t we want this!?   Beware – you are responsible for  letting this happen:

 2Ti 4:3 “For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but wanting to have their ears tickled, they will accumulate for themselves teachers in accordance to their own desires;   2Ti 4:4and will turn away their ears from the truth, and will turn aside to myths.” (NASB)

 Why will you turn away?

 Enduring sound doctrine will mean enduring hardship = suffering:   2Ti 4:5 “But you, be sober in all things, endure hardship, do the work of an evangelist (to bring good news), fulfill your ministry.”

Faith and love are found in “sound words”  2Ti 1:13 “Retain the standard of sound words which you have heard from me, in the faith and love which are in Christ Jesus.”

 And, just in case we need more exhortation:   1Ti 4:13 “Till I come, give attendance to reading, to exhortation, to doctrine.”

 See “give attendance” in the above verse?  It is present tense, meaning now and keep on –

 – in “active” voice, which means you and I do the action –

 – and in the imperative mood, meaning this is a commandment.

 “Give attendance” means – #G4337

-prosecho (G4337), “to take heed, give heed,” is said of the priests who “gave attendance at the altar,” Heb_7:13. It suggests devotion of thought and effort to a thing. In 1Ti_4:13(in the exhortation regarding the public reading of the Scriptures), the RV translates it “give heed,” for the KJV, “give attendance.” In Act_16:14, “to give heed” (for KJV, “attended). See BEWARE, GIVE, No. 17, REGARD.(Vine’s Dictionary of New Testament Words)

 Now, read the above verse again!  Tell Him you will not obey – or tell Him of your desire to study the Biblical meaning of the “Good News.”  Sound doctrine will cure those itching ears!!

What Gospel – good news –  Did the Lord Jesus Preach?………  here is a “copy and paste” from the 9/11 entry:

 See 1 Timothy 6:3 –   “If anyone advocates a different doctrine, and does not agree with sound (healthy) words, those of our Lord Jesus Christ, and with the doctrine conforming to godliness,”

 The Bible has recorded our Lord’s doctrine (teachings) very plainly.  Why, they hardly need any exposition.  However, His Words will be about the coming 1,000 year kingdom – which is literal.  It is interesting to me that in the Old Testament, kingdoms are literal and most people see them that way easily.  Then, they come to the New Testament………and explain our Lord’s kingdom away.

Why was our Lord sent from His Father’s throne?

Lu 4:43 But He said to them, “I must preach the kingdom of God to the other cities also, for I was sent for this purpose.”

 His preaching from the beginning?

Mr 1:1  The beginning of the gospel of Jesus Christ, the Son of God.

Mr 1:14  And after John had been taken into custody, Jesus came into Galilee, preaching the gospel of God,  1:15 and saying, “The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand; repent and believe in the gospel.”

Mt 4:17 From that time Jesus began to preach and say, “Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.”

Mt 4:23 ¶ And Jesus was going about in all Galilee, teaching in their synagogues, and proclaiming the gospel of the kingdom, and healing every kind of disease and every kind of sickness among the people.

Lu 8:1 ¶ And it came about soon afterwards, that He began going about from one city and village to another, proclaiming and preaching the kingdom of God; and the twelve were with Him,

Joh 6:68 Simon Peter answered Him, “Lord, to whom shall we go? You have words of eternal life.  (Better: age-lasting life, or kingdom life.)


 His preaching at the end of His ministry?

Ac 1:3 To these He also presented Himself alive, after His suffering, by many convincing proofs, appearing to them over a period of forty days, and speaking of the things concerning the kingdom of God.
