And now abideth faith, hope, charity, these three; but the greatest of these is charity (1 Corinthians 13:13)

The Theological Virtues of 1 Corinthians 13, specifically 1 Corinthians 13:13, detail the core of what love in God’s Spirit truly is. As St. Paul closes this revered chapter with these parting words, “And now abideth faith, hope, charity, these three; but the greatest of these is charity,” he is ending the spiritual note on an emphasis. As God so loved the world and gave Jesus Christ, as God has loved us first, as real of a love it is to love thy neighbor and thy brother, love in whatever Biblical shade is essential. In this work, Author and Writer Matthew Pope shares the intimate contents of what conjures love in the Christian sense and demonstrates the punitive actions of loving someone, and chiefly, loving Christ. A Scripture driven source material, may readers approach this book in a loving fashion to unravel what God’s Word attests to in total, unabashed love itself. 

Welcomed as the ninth book in the collection of Matthew Pope’s writing career, Greatest of These joins previous publications such as two entries from the War with The Remnant Series, a church compilation of photography, doctrinal manuscripts, historical pieces, and a handbook, as well as radio scripts. In all these, he has continued the mantra of honoring Christ Jesus and so fulfilling the business of The Father, by offering The Church these holy and unblemished sacrifices, by The Spirit of Incarnated Truth.
