Lesson 5 - Proverbs 31 Class

Welcome and hello!
Thanks for stopping by.

Proverbs 31:14
She is like the ships of the merchant:
she brings her food from afar.

(How easy it is for us today to find "food from afar" in our local markets!)

The woman of the Bible for this verse is Phoebe.
Her story is found in:
Romans 16:1-2 (NIV)
I command to you our sister Phoebe,
a deacon of the church in Cenchrea.
I ask you to receive her in the Lord
in a way worthy of his people and
to give to her any help she may need
from you, for she has been a benefactor
of many people, including me.

NIV = deacon
KJV = servant
CJB = shammash

deacon - an ordained or appointed minister ranking lower than a priest.
syn. = cleric, clerk, ecclesiastic, minister

benefactor - a person who gives money or other help to a person or cause.
syn. - patron, donor, supporter, sponsor

Cenchrea, now called Kikries, is a port of Corinth. It was a place of some commercial note and the seat of an early church. (Rom. 16:1-2)


My never ending supply of washi tape was added to enhance the beautiful graphics provided in this study.

Gratitude
1. Ships
2. Food from all over the world
3. Benefactors

Ephesians 1:16
I have not stopped giving thanks for you,
remembering you in my prayers.

Blessings,
Deborah
