Texts

(1) ApJas 6:15b [=SecJas 6:19-26]

"Therefore, I say to you, be sober; don't go astray. 20 Moreover, I have often said to you all together---and also to you alone, James, have I said---be saved. 21 I have commanded you to follow me, and I have taught you how to respond in the presence of the rulers. 22 Observe that I have descended, and have spoken, and have expended myself, and have won my crown, so as to save you. 23 For I descended to dwell with you so that you might also dwell with me. And when I found your houses to be without roofs, I dwelt instead in houses that could receive me at the time of my descent. 24 "Therefore, rely on me, my brothers; understand what the great light is. 25 The Father does not need me. For a father does not need a son, but it is the son who needs the father. 26 To him do I go, for the Father of the Son is not in need of you." [Complete Gospels]
