“THE EXHORTATION” (te paraklesis) actually may be ‘the personal calling, summoning, or invocation for the Holy Spirit of Christ ‘to come alongside’ the congregation.  Early Church history records show this “invocation for the Parakletos Holy Spirit” to be a standard way of opening a Christian public meeting, and this is still practiced in many churches today!   Since Paul is gone, Timothy will need to “invoke” the “One Teacher” (a) who will “guide them all into ALL truth” (b), who will “teach you ALL things” (c), the “anointing by the Holy One (Christ), so that you ALL already [with ongoing results] eido mentally ‘see’ to perceive/know” or “you already [with ongoing results] eido mentally ‘see’ to perceive/know  ALL things” (d),  the “anointing that you received from Him that abides/dwells in you, so you-ALL have absolutely no need for anyone else to teach you, for His anointing teaches you-ALL about everything and is trustworthy” (e). <Notes> a) Matthew 23:8 – see Teach One Another – BT10, b) John 16:13, c) John 14:26, d) 1 John 2:20, e) 1 John 2:27.


Can you see how “The Reading” from previous BLOG of possibly Paul’s previous letters about the gospel’s “sound-logos messages” or more likely the prophetic ‘portions of’ Messianic passages from the Old Testament scriptures in 1 Timothy 4:13 and then after “The Invoking” the next task that is “The Instruction or Teaching” about these “Readings” are directly related to “The Invoking” of the Parakletos Holy Spirit to come alongside to ultimately be our “One Teacher?”  None of this has to do with 97.4% of the scripture that is Law-based – Logos Word of God – BT5a, but the 600 verses that are the “prophetic ‘portions of’ scripture that “make Timothy wise for salvation through trusting-relying-faith in Jesus Christ!” (f) – Logos Word of God – BT6<Notes> a) 2 Timothy 3:15 – see Logos Word of God – BT7.


This Invocation of The Parakletos Holy Spirit would naturally distinguish it, as the definite article te indicates, from the common meaning of paraklesis as simply “an exhortation, ‘an urging by someone close by,’ thus an intimate urging through motivation, inspiration, or encouragement.”  Certainly that is what leaders also do for the Body-of-Christ, which is certainly Timothy’s role, but the definite article is referring NOT to his actions but to a specific ritual.


Exhortation is certainly the way Jesus and the Holy Spirit as our TWO Parakletos also “counsels, comforts, and encourages” disciples.  In 1 Corinthians 14:3, Paul speaks of the edification, paraklesis encouragement and comfort that Christians get from the Spirit’s prophecy to and thru members of the Body-of-Christ spoken in church assemblies – so why wouldn’t today’s churches desire to do this?


Still none of these examples have the definite articlethe paraklesis.”  However, in Romans 15:4 Paul says: “Through the endurance and the paraklesis of the scriptures we might have hope (a),” but again in the immediate context Paul is not referring to “the whole/entirety of scripture” but “every of a portion of scripture” that is Messianic prophecy about Christ’s suffering, which Paul uses to encourage Christians to endure in their hope in Christ so they can endure in their “stronger” trusting-relying-faith, despite the judgments about Mosaic dietary laws they were embroiled in from “weaker” Jewish-Christians that Paul speaks about in Romans 14.  Paul encourages them to hold onto Christian unconditional-love that looks out for others instead of just their own “rights,” just as Paul quoted Christ doing!  <Notes> a) see Logos Word of God – BT9.


Yes, the pas ‘every of a portion/category/class of’ scripture, the God-breathed [ones] [that are] profitable for teaching, etc.” from 2 Timothy 3:16 is ‘the kind/class/category’ that speaks of trusting-relying-faith (a), that speaks of Christ, His “sound logos messages about the gospel” (b), which speak of the completely-different-in-kind New Covenant – these alone are “for our instruction, that through the endurance and encouragement” that they give, “we might have hope” (c).  Paul is emphasizing “our instruction/teaching” because the “weak-in-The-Trusting-Relying-Faith” (The Christian Faith) are using the Old Testament scriptures to promote the Torah Law of conditional-favor, which Paul never stops speaking out against!  <Notes> a) pistis: relational conviction of trusting reliance – see Logos Word of God – BT7, b) 1 Timothy 6:3, cf. 2 Timothy 1:13, c) Romans 15:4.


The Christian’s “hope” from above is nothing like “the hope of righteousness” preached from “the teachers of the Law!”  Paul speaks much about “the blessed hope, the appearing of the glory of our great God and Savior Jesus Christ” (a), our “hope is in Christ” (b), “Christ in you, the hope of glory” (c), “through the Spirit, by-the-means-of trusting-relying-faith, we ourselves eagerly wait for the hope of righteousness” (d), not the righteousness through 613 commandments of the Torah Law of conditional-favor!  <Notes> a) Titus 2:13, b) Ephesians 1:12, c) Colossians 1:27, d) Galatians 5:5.


Paul consistently uses “every of a portion/category/class/type of” scripture (a) to parakaleo “reprove, rebuke, and exhort with complete patience and teaching” many Jews that argue against his gospel logos message of The Truth, and so this is the exact advise he gives Timothy in order to follow in Paul’s footsteps (b).  So instead of the standard practice of synagogue leaders “exhorting and/related instructing/teaching” their listeners from the Law after it’s “reading,” once again Paul has redefined the standard Jewish terms and practices, in this case by encouraging the Jewish converts from their own Messianic scriptures, and so this likely would be “The Instruction/Teaching” that Paul next speaks of in the next BLOG!  Therefore, “THE READING and THE EXHORTATION” have nothing to do with the Law, which makes up 94.7% of the OT – see Logos Word of God – BT5a. <Notes> a) The context of 2 Timothy 3:16 clearly defines the “portion” as being the prophetic scriptures that made Timothy “wise unto salvation by trusting-relying-faith in Jesus Christ.”  Paul would never refer to the Torah Law of conditional-favor this way – see Logos Word of God – BT7, b) 2 Timothy 4:2.

Spiritual Education, Body Ministry, The Exhortation of early Church services was NOT preaching the Mosaic Law, The Exhortation was the Summoning of the One-Teacher Holy Spirit of Christ, The Invoking of the Spirit needed for The Teaching of The Readings from Old Testament Messianic Passages, The Spirit will help the church leaders encourage others about Scriptures that foster faith in Christ, Teachers of the Law were NOT allowed in the churches
