2:18 Saying the resurrection is already past - Perhaps asserting that it is only the spiritual passing from death unto life.


People's Bible Notes for 2 Timothy 2:18


2Ti 2:18 Who concerning the truth have erred. Their speculation is stated. They preached, as some do in our own times, that the resurrection is past already. That the resurrection which Christ teaches is only a moral resurrection, a resurrection of the soul to a better life. This error was taught also in Corinth, 1Co 15:12, and found some currency in the second century.

    What timely advice! We live in very upsetting times, and violence is being conducted as never before. So many use violence as a means to get "justice". Violence only begets violence. If cultivate the fruitage of the spirit we will be able to be restrained when wronged, and fully trust in Jehovah God to administer justice, not our fist ( or gun).
