The Fourfold Gospel

Acts 20

 

 

Verses 33-35
In all things I gave you an example, that so laboring ye ought to help the weak, and to remember the words of the Lord Jesus, that he himself said, It is more blessed to give than to receive1.

  1. It is more blessed to give than to receive. For completeness' sake we might also add these words of Jesus. These words quoted by Paul are not found in the gospel. The earthly life of Jesus shades off into the celestial, but we think that he have now given all that may be rightly included in the former.
