The Scofield Bible Commentary, by Cyrus Ingerson Scofield, , at sacred-texts.com
(See Scofield) - (Mat 13:11).
Grace (imparted). (Th2 1:12); (Rom 6:1); (Pe2 3:18).
A touching illustration of priestly service,
(See Scofield) - (Pe1 2:9),
as distinguished from ministry of gift. Shut up in prison, no longer able to preach, Epaphras was still, equally with all believers, a priest. No prison could keep him from the throne of grace, so he gave himself wholly to the priestly work of intercession.
(See Scofield) - (Mat 5:48).
