Stewards Of The Mysteries Of God from the Author: Patrick D. Miller. One of our best known biblical interpreters offers essays and sermons meant to assist preachers in their interpretation and explication of biblical texts. Often neglected in preaching, the Old Testament is a particular focus of attention, but only in the context of the wholeness of Scripture.Questions addressed in this volume include the following: How does one approach and preach the Old Testament at Easter? What are the contemporary issues or dimensions in preaching the Ten Commandments? And how does the preacher hold the Old Testament and the New Testament in proclaiming God's word to the church?In this collection, attention is given to preaching about the ministry and on particular occasions, such as funerals, baccalaureates, ordination, and in Advent and Christmas as well as before Holy Communion.

Stewards Of The Mysteries Of God from the Author: Raymond Wiggins. Could it be possible that the 144,000 saints of John's vision are already resurrected from the dead in the risen Messiah as the "firstfruits order" of the resurrection and are now "hidden," in heavenly places, awaiting the return of the Messiah? If so could they be mentioned, cryptically, by the Apostle Paul, as "Christ the Firstfruits" in 1 Corinthians 15:23? Is it possible that Judas Iscariot, incognito, could be the coming Antichrist, the "son of perdition," returning from his "own place" to become the "seed" of Satan, fulfilling the "mystery of iniquity" in a treacherous sequel of betrayal, but this time, betraying the "national son" of God, called out of Egypt, Israel, whom he will lead like a lamb to the slaughter (Hosea 11:1)? And what about those "many mansions" promised by Yeshua, is it possible that such dwelling places will be built, not in heaven, but here on earth--in the place to be called "The Lord Is There"? Is it possible that Yeshua, through earthen vessels, has been longing to play a flute, harp, or some other instrument with "distinction of sounds" praising the Lord in the midst of the churches, but many forbid Him to do so in their assemblies?

Stewards Of The Mysteries Of God from the Author: James D. Heiser. Writing to the Church in Corinth, St. Paul referred to himself and other called servants of Christ as "stewards of the mysteries of God." The work of the office of the holy ministry is still defined in this way, as pastors are sent by Christ to bring God's gifts of Word and Sacrament to His Church. The essays in this volume were written by the Rt. Rev. James D. Heiser, who serves as bishop of the Evangelical Lutheran Diocese of North America (ELDoNA) and as pastor of Salem Lutheran Church in Malone, Texas. In these essays, Bishop Heiser addresses many aspects of the work of the ministry, but throughout there is an emphasis on the pastor's responsibility for preaching the Word, administering the Sacraments, and exercising the office of the keys. The ongoing significance of the Lutheran Confessions of the Book of Concord (1580), as well as other writings of the theologians of the Lutheran Reformation and the Age of Orthodoxy (1580-1713) is evident throughout Heiser's writings. In the midst of the current "ministry" debates, these essays direct pastors and laity alike to the clear teaching of God's Word concerning the blessings which the Lord grants to His Church through His called and ordained servants.

Stewards Of God S Mysteries from the Author: Paul J. Philibert. This study of priestly spirituality at the start of a new millennium considers how priests participate in the dying and rising of the Lord through challenges and joys that are rooted in our changing culture, in the growing diversity of our Catholic world, and in the demands of their own ministry. Designed as a study text, these pages contain reflection questions for both individuals and study groups of bishops, superiors and priests.
