Through the apostle’s eye is a site inspired by St Paul’s continuous pleas for us to become imitators of Christ by imitating the apostle’s:
“Be imitators of me, as I am of Christ.” (1 Corinthians 11:1 ESV)
“You became imitators of us and of the Lord, for you welcomed the message in the midst of severe suffering with the joy given by the Holy Spirit.” (1 Thessalonians 1:6 NIV)
Some time back I set out to look at one old testament character daily and reflected on there journey as to apply the lessons to my life. After a while though I noticed that most accounts of characters in the old testament are quite short; whereas in the new testament we have a wealth of teaching from the apostles. In this blog I will be looking at biblical issues from the view of the Apostles. An example of this is the article:
In that article I explore the beatitude ‘blessed are the pure in heart, for they will see God’ from the perspective of the apostle John. This is what I mean by looking through the apostle’s eye, examining Christian issues from the perspective of an apostle.
The application should not stop there though, whilst we imitate the apostles, what would the apostles make of our modern age? How would they engage with technology? What does imitating the apostles look like in a world of technology and media?
