    “And so Jesus also suffered outside the city gate to make the people holy through his own blood. Let us, then, go to him outside the camp, bearing the disgrace he bore. For here we do not have an enduring city, but we are looking for the city that is to come.”

    this brings to mind some confusion that lurks in the back of my mind… what does it mean to pray for the peace of Jerusalem?
    do we pray for them to be at peace? … or … do we pray for the peace that will come down from heaven at our Lord’s return?

    Em – It’s Psalm 122 – I think it’s just peace for the inhabitants.

  3. Jean says:

    “Do not be carried away by all kinds of strange teachings. It is good for our hearts to be strengthened by grace, not by eating ceremonial foods, which is of no benefit to those who do so.”

    I’m afraid that American Christianity, with a very few exceptions, has lost faith in the power of grace to strengthen the heart. What is the contemporary equivalent of eating ceremonial foods in American Christianity?
