Which is the odd one out?
- Christ’s blood
- God’s promises
None of them.
They all have one thing in common. The New Testament describes them all with the same Greek adjective τίμιος, usually translated either as “precious” or “honorable.”
- Precious gemstones (1 Cor. 3:12)
- Precious blood of Christ (1 Pet. 1:19)
- Honorable marriage (Heb. 11:4)
- Precious promises of God (2 Pet. 1:4)
God puts marriage in the same league as precious gemstones, the precious promises of God, and the precious blood of Christ.
