The notes below go with today’s post of A Nonchurchgoer’s Guide to Jesus and His Kingdom.
1 John 2:27 (The “anointing” of which John writes is the Holy Spirit whom the Lord gives to those who obey Him. The Holy Spirit speaks on behalf of Jesus. He is bringing you Jesus’ word, and by listening and obeying, you are a true disciple, according to John 8:30-32 above.)
2 Timothy 2:7 (Paul was telling Timothy that the Lord would help Timothy understand what Paul was saying. The Teacher gives understanding.)
Matthew 5:1-2 (Matthew chapters five through seven are the Sermon on the Mount.)
