How much does the Gospel mean to you? In the Apostle Paul’s last days he sent word to Timothy to bring his books and parchments. While we can not be sure exactly what the books and parchments were, one thing is certain. As he was awaiting the certainty of death his mind was still filled with a desire to read and communicate with others about the Gospel.
“When you come, bring the cloak that I left with Carpus at Troas, also the books, and above all the parchments.” 2 Timothy 4:13 ESV
This verse came to my mind this weekend as I read a question posed by another blogger. It was a question that was very thought provoking and definitely not easy to answer. After commenting on the post I was curious to know how the readers of this blog would answer. Although I will alter it slightly to fit with the verse above, the point remains the same.
If you were in prison and could only bring 10 books of the Bible, 5 from the OT & 5 from the NT, which ones would you choose. Below is my list:
As you ponder the question I encourage you to think about why you would choose each one and just how important it would be for you to have them with you. After all, that’s ultimately why I have asked.
I’m looking forward to seeing which ones you would choose 🙂 And, in case you would like to check out the other blog here is a link to the post.
