This week I am answering Garrett's question about Colossians 1:24. Thanks Doc.
What is the concept of what is lacking in Christ Suffering?
Paul's Ministry to the Church
24 Now I rejoice in my sufferings for your sake, and in my flesh I am filling up what is lacking in Christ's afflictions for the sake of his body, that is, the church, kjv
Who now rejoice in my sufferings for you, and fill up that which is behind of the afflictions of Christ in my flesh for his body's sake, which is the church: ESV
Now I rejoice in my sufferings for your sake, and in my flesh I am supplementing what is lacking [a]in Christ’s afflictions in behalf of His body, which is the church. NASV
I want you to know how glad I am that it’s me sitting here in this jail and not you. There’s a lot of suffering to be entered into in this world—the kind of suffering Christ takes on. I welcome the chance to take my share in the church’s part of that suffering. When I became a servant in this church, I experienced this suffering as a sheer gift, God’s way of helping me serve you, laying out the whole truth. The Message
Why read the Bible? How To Read the Bible? Why Read the Bible?
About Greek and how the Bible can throw us off sometimes.
How God can use that to teach us. Like He did me this week.
The Bible is an anthology—a compilation of texts of a variety of forms—originally written in Hebrew, Aramaic, and Koine Greek.
By and by, when the morning comes
All the saints of God are gathered home
We will tell the story how we've overcome
And we'll understand it better by and by
