My daily exploration of the Bible, taking it one chapter at a time. If I do it everyday, it'll take 1189 days.

Hebrews 13

But not two days ago.

Summary:
Be nice to strangers. They could be angels. Honour marriage and purity. Be content with what you have, God is always with you. Remember the good teaching you have received from God leaders. Remember food doesn't make you holy. Jesus was rejected from the city, so we'll go outside too, waiting for the future city.

Offering praise as your sacrifice. Be good to your leaders, and don't get them stressed. Pray for us!

Blessings.

Oh, Timothy's been released.

Bye

Key verse:
8. Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever.

My thoughts:
This is quite a cool list of stuff to remember. It stretches from simple practical things, like being content with what you have, to quite esoteric things like the possibility of unknowingly hosting angels.

I don't really get the part about 'us going out of the camp/city'. Perhaps it is referring to the expulsion of all the Jews from Jerusalem, which would certainly rule out Pauline authorship. Perhaps it is a symbolic thing referring to some sort of pilgrimage. It's hard to know.

I'm very tired.
