Vine's Expository Dictionary of NT Words - Fellow
1: ἀνήρ (Strong's #435 — Noun Masculine — aner — an'-ayr ) denotes "a man," in relation to his sex or age; in Acts 17:5 (plural) it is rendered "fellows," as more appropriate to the accompanying description of them. See HUSBAND , MAN , SIR.
2: ἑταῖρος (Strong's #2083 — Noun Masculine — hetairos — het-ah'ee-ros ) "a companion, comrade," is translated "fellows" in Matthew 11:16 [1]. The word is used only by Matthew and is translated "friend" in Matthew 20:13 ; 22:12 ; 26:50 . See FRIEND.
3: μέτοχος (Strong's #3353 — Adjective — metochos — met'-okh-os ) properly an adjective signifying "sharing in, partaking of," is translated "partners" in Luke 5:7 ; "partakers" in Hebrews 3:1,14 ; 6:4 ; 12:8 ; "fellows" in Hebrews 1:9 , of those who share in a heavenly calling, or have held, or will hold, a regal position in relation to the earthly, messianic kingdom. (Cp. summetochos, "fellow-partakers," in Ephesians 3:6 , RV). See PARTAKER , PARTNER.
Notes: (1) In Acts 24:5 loimos, "a plague, a pest," is rendered "a pestilent fellow." This is a sample of the strongest use of the epithet "fellow." (2) Toioutos, an adjective, "such a one," is often used as a noun, e.g., Acts 22:22 , where it is translated "such a fellow." (3) Houtos, "this," is translated "this fellow" in the AV of Luke 23:2 (RV, "this man"). So in John 9:29 . Both versions have "this man," e.g., in Mark 2:7 ; John 6:52 , in the same contemptuous sense. (4) For the word in combination with various nouns see CITIZEN , DISCIPLE , ELDER , HEIR , HELPER , LABORER , MEMBER , PARTNER , PRISONER , SERVANT , SOLDIER , WORK , WORKER.

Hastings' Dictionary of the Bible - Fellow
FELLOW . This Eng. word is used in AV [1] with the meaning either of (1) companion, or (2) of person. Thus (1) Psalms 45:7 ‘God, thy God, hath anointed thee with the oil of gladness above thy fellows’; (2) Matthew 26:71 ‘This fellow was also with Jesus of Nazareth’ (RV [2] ‘man’; there is no word in the Gr.). Cf. Tindale’s trans. of Genesis 39:2 ‘And the Lorde was with Joseph, and he was a luckie fellowe.’ Although the word when used in AV [1] for person may have a touch of disparagement, nowhere is it used to express strong contempt as now.

The Hawker's Poor Man's Concordance And Dictionary - Fellow
I should not have thought it necessary to have called the reader's attention to this word, had it not been to remark to him, the great beauty of it in a double sense, when applied to the person of the Lord Jesus Christ in relation to his fellowship with his Father in the nature and essence of the GODHEAD, and in relation to his fellowship with his church in the human nature; under both which the Lord Jesus appears so lovely and so endeared to his people, as to render him most interesting indeed.
In the former sense of the word, as applied to Christ, or spoken of him, we have that very precious unequalled passage of the Lord, by the prophet Zechariah, (Zechariah 13:7) where JEHOVAH calls him by this name, "The man that is my fellow, saith the Lord of hosts." Every one who knows any thing of the common terms made use of among men, knows also, that fellow means equal. The very name, indeed, would lose all its force and meaning, when spoken of persons in common, if there were supposed the least inequality between them. And this runs through all ranks and orders of the people, from the king to the beggar. The king's fellow, and the beggar's fellow, is perfectly understood as implying a common level. How truly blessed, therefore, is the word as applied by JEHOVAH himself to the person of the Lord Jesus Christ. Who but must rejoice, when he thus receives God the Father's own testimony to the oneness and fellowship in the divine nature between God the Father, and God the Son. "The man that is my fellow, saith the Lord of hosts."
In like manner, on the same ground, how very blessed is it to consider him who, in his divine nature, is fellow to the Lord of hosts; in his human nature, is fellow to his church and people. Here again, the Lord JEHOVAH, the Father, gives the like testimony; for speaking to Joshua, the type of Jesus, the Lord saith, "Here now, O Joshua the high priest, thou and thy fellows that sit before thee, for they are men wondered at" (Zechariah 3:8) Wondered at indeed, to be fellow to him in his human nature, who, in his divine nature, "is fellow to the Lord of hosts!" But so it is: for the truth is undeniable. Hence Jesus himself, by the spirit of prophecy, under the ministry of a prophet, is introduced as saying, "Behold, I and the children whom the Lord hath given me, are for signs and wonders in Israel; from the Lord of hosts, which dwelleth in mount Zion." (Isaiah 8:18) See this more fully explained, (Hebrews 2:11-13) Hence also, the Holy Ghost bears testimony to the same in that glorious Scripture, when speaking of his mediatorial throne, and the covenanting of Christ for his people; "Thy throne, O God, is for ever and ever; the sceptre of thy kingdom is a right sceptre. Thou lovest righteousness, and hatest wickedness; therefore God, thy God, hath anointed thee with the oil of gladness above (or for) thy fellows:" for so the word may be rendered. And if I were writing a Concordance for the learned, and not for the poor man, I should say the original will justify that it should be, non prœ consortibus, sedpropter consortes. (Compare Psalms 45:6-7 with Hebrews 1:8-9)
Now I beg the reader to ponder well the subject, and mark with me the blessedness and the preciousness of it. Here are all the persons in JEHOVAH testifying to this glorious character of the Lord Jesus, as the fellow of the Lord of hosts in his divine nature. And let me ask, what can be more blessed or precious? In the one, how glorious to consider the foundation and security of all that is interesting to our hopes for the life that now is, and that which is to come. And in the other, how very sweet and lovely it is, to know our nearness and fellow partnership in all that is in Christ Jesus as the Head and Husband of his body the church, "the fulness of him that filleth all in all." O! with what rapture ought every child of God to read what the Holy Ghost saith to this purport, in the close of the second chapter of the Hebrews. (Hebrews 2:1-18) "For verily he took not on him the nature of angels; but he took on him the seed of Abraham. Wherefore in all things it behoved him to be made like unto his brethren, that he might be a merciful and faithful high priest in things pertaining to God, to make reconciliation for the sins of the people. For in that he himself hath suffered, being tempted, he is able to succour them that are tempted."
And now I hope from such unanswerable testimonies to this great truth as are found in all the persons of the GODHEAD witnessing to it, the reader will never be in danger of being led away from the uniform and unceasing belief, that he who in his infinite grace and mercy hath made himself our fellow, is, and hath been from all eternity, fellow to the Lord of hosts. If any would teach a contrary doctrine, let him first solemnly declare whether God the Holy Ghost hath taught it him. This question, if properly applied, would be a dreadful silencing to all such as pretend to be "wise above what is written." And I would solemnly recommend also, every one of this description, who, under the pretence of candour, is literally joining, however unintentionally, the Infidel's cause, to read the history of Nadab and Abihu, Leviticus 10:2 and Uzzah, 2 Samuel 6:6-7. With such tremendous judgments in view, we should hear no more of such presumptuous reasonings.
And while the Lord Jesus himself bears testimony to the fellowship and equality between himself and his Father, saying, "I and my Father are one," (John 10:30) none after this would fancy fellow meant neighbour. Neither would such venture to say, when our Lord quoted the passage of Zechariah, which he did in the hour of his sufferings, (see Zechariah 13:7 compared with Matthew 25:31-32) he meant no more than a mere proverbial expression, and had not the most distinct relation to his sufferings and death.
Vine's Expository Dictionary of OT Words - Stupid Fellow
Kesı̂yl (כְּסִיל, Strong's #3684), “stupid fellow; dull person; fool.” This word occurs in the Old Testament 70 times. All of its occurrences are in wisdom literature except 3 in the Psalms.
The kesı̂yl is “insolent” in religion and “stupid or dull” in wise living (living out a religion he professes). In Ps. 92:6 the first emphasis is especially prominent: “A brutish man knoweth not; neither doth a fool understand this.” The psalmist is describing an enemy of God who knew God and His word but, seeing the wicked flourishing, reasoned that they have the right life-style (Ps. 92:7). They have knowledge of God but do not properly evaluate or understand what they know. The second emphasis is especially prominent in wisdom contexts: “How long, ye simple ones, will ye love simplicity? and the scorners delight in their scorning, and fools hate knowledge?” (Prov. 1:22). In such contexts the person so described rejects the claims and teachings of wisdom. However, in the Bible wisdom is the practical outworking of one’s religion. Therefore, even in these contexts there is a clear connotation of insolence in religion.
Kesı̂yl means “stupidity; imperturbability; confidence.” This noun occurs 6 times. It means “stupidity” in Eccl. 7:25 and “confidence” in Prov. 3:26. The meaning of “confidence” also appears in Job 31:24: “If I have made gold my hope.…”

Fellow - I should not have thought it necessary to have called the reader's attention to this word, had it not been to remark to him, the great beauty of it in a double sense, when applied to the person of the Lord Jesus Christ in relation to his Fellowship with his Father in the nature and essence of the GODHEAD, and in relation to his Fellowship with his church in the human nature; under both which the Lord Jesus appears so lovely and so endeared to his people, as to render him most interesting indeed. ...
In the former sense of the word, as applied to Christ, or spoken of him, we have that very precious unequalled passage of the Lord, by the prophet Zechariah, (Zechariah 13:7) where JEHOVAH calls him by this name, "The man that is my Fellow, saith the Lord of hosts. " Every one who knows any thing of the common terms made use of among men, knows also, that Fellow means equal. The king's Fellow, and the beggar's Fellow, is perfectly understood as implying a common level. Who but must rejoice, when he thus receives God the Father's own testimony to the oneness and Fellowship in the divine nature between God the Father, and God the Son. "The man that is my Fellow, saith the Lord of hosts. "...
In like manner, on the same ground, how very blessed is it to consider him who, in his divine nature, is Fellow to the Lord of hosts; in his human nature, is Fellow to his church and people. Here again, the Lord JEHOVAH, the Father, gives the like testimony; for speaking to Joshua, the type of Jesus, the Lord saith, "Here now, O Joshua the high priest, thou and thy Fellows that sit before thee, for they are men wondered at" (Zechariah 3:8) Wondered at indeed, to be Fellow to him in his human nature, who, in his divine nature, "is Fellow to the Lord of hosts!" But so it is: for the truth is undeniable. Thou lovest righteousness, and hatest wickedness; therefore God, thy God, hath anointed thee with the oil of gladness above (or for) thy Fellows:" for so the word may be rendered. Here are all the persons in JEHOVAH testifying to this glorious character of the Lord Jesus, as the Fellow of the Lord of hosts in his divine nature. And in the other, how very sweet and lovely it is, to know our nearness and Fellow partnership in all that is in Christ Jesus as the Head and Husband of his body the church, "the fulness of him that filleth all in all. "...
And now I hope from such unanswerable testimonies to this great truth as are found in all the persons of the GODHEAD witnessing to it, the reader will never be in danger of being led away from the uniform and unceasing belief, that he who in his infinite grace and mercy hath made himself our Fellow, is, and hath been from all eternity, Fellow to the Lord of hosts. ...
And while the Lord Jesus himself bears testimony to the Fellowship and equality between himself and his Father, saying, "I and my Father are one," (John 10:30) none after this would fancy Fellow meant neighbour

Neighbour - In קָרוֹב, it is true, the etymological root is ‘near,’ but it occurs very rarely; in the slightly commoner עָמִית, with the much more usual רַעַ, the thought is rather that of one’s ‘fellows’ or ‘friends. of the same or some adjacent district), and is thus akin to קָרוֹב, but on the whole, in the words translated ‘neighbour,’ the idea of Fellowship is much stronger than that of proximity, and in a number of passages, as a rendering of רַעַ, ‘fellow’ or ‘fellows’ should perhaps be substituted. At the same time, ‘fellow-man’ would be an exaggeration, for it would imply not only humanitarianism, which many of these passages contain, but universalism, which is too much to postulate. In Romans 15:2 and Ephesians 4:25 the context probably favours the interpretation ‘fellow-Christian,’ in Romans 13:9-10 ‘fellow-man’; Galatians 5:14 and James 2:8 are doubtful

Paul’s past experience of Philemon’s ‘love and faith,’ generosity to Fellow-believers, and loyalty to himself, gave the Apostle ‘confidence’ in interceding with his friend on behalf of that friend’s runaway but now converted slave, Onesimus, and in beseeching Philemon not only to forgive the slave’s misdemeanours, but to receive him as now a brother in Christ

In spite of this insistence of the law that Israel was to be kind to foreigners and treat them with compassion and justice, the preponderance of emphasis is on the "neighborliness" to be shown to Fellow members of the covenant with Israel. Thus, when the Old Testament prescribes treating one's neighbor as oneself (Leviticus 19:18 b), we are to envisage how Israel was to treat Fellow Israelites (Leviticus 19:17-18 a) and, only by extension, Gentiles. The vision of Zechariah for the final days included the refreshing Fellowship of neighborliness (3:10). ...
Thus, when we enter into the New Testament period we are to understand the biblical laws of the Old Testament that speak of neighborliness as injunctions for special treatment of Fellow Jews. Jews showed special love for Fellow Jews because they were covenantally and racially bound together. Furthermore, Paul urges his congregations to be neighborly, and we are probably justified in seeing such exhortations applying primarily to Christian Fellowship ( Romans 13:8-10 ; 1 Corinthians 10:24 ; Ephesians 4:25 )
Fellowship - Nothing is so prominent in early Christianity as its sense of Fellowship. This Fellowship is primarily a religious fact: it is Fellowship with the heavenly Lord, who, though hidden in heaven (Acts 3:21), is yet sensibly present to His followers (Matthew 18:20; Matthew 28:20). Even the individual believer knows that he is in Fellowship with Christ. He speaks also of ‘the Fellowship of his sufferings’ (Philippians 3:10), which allows his own sufferings to participate in the saving power of Christ’s afflictions for His Church (Colossians 1:24, Ephesians 3:13). The Fellowship with Christ to which God has called Christians (1 Corinthians 1:9) has not yet been fully realized, but is still to be hoped for. John emphasizes the fact that this present Fellowship with Christ (1 John 1:6) is Fellowship with the Father and with the Son (1 John 1:3). Paul speaks of ‘fellowship of the Spirit’ (Philippians 2:1) as well as of ‘communion of the Holy Ghost’ (2 Corinthians 13:14), the same Greek word (κοινωνία) being used in both passages. Fellowship with the heavenly Lord, who sits at the right hand of God, and makes intercession for His followers (Romans 8:34; cf. Fellowship with the Holy Ghost is realized in certainty of salvation and boldness in prayer (Romans 8:15 f, Romans 8:26; cf. Fellowship of the faith (Philemon 1:6) is Fellowship of the faithful. This is an exclusive Fellowship: ‘what Fellowship have righteousness and iniquity? or what communion hath light with darkness? (2 Corinthians 6:14). his scruples regarding invitations to heathen houses or temples, 1 Corinthians 10:27), was carried out in later times (1 Peter 4:4, 3 John 1:7); and the leaders in the Church even began to insist on avoiding all Fellowship with Christians of doubtful character (2 John 1:10 f. One sign of this Fellowship is mutual intercession (2 Corinthians 1:11, Colossians 4:3, 2 Thessalonians 3:1), another is the kiss of peace (2 Corinthians 13:12, 1 Thessalonians 5:26). At the so-called Apostolic Council, James, Peter, and John gave Paul and Barnabas the right hand of Fellowship in token of their mutual recognition of one another as Fellow-workers in their different mission fields (Galatians 2:9). Paul mentions not only his Fellow-workers (Romans 16:3) but also his Fellow-prisoners (Romans 16:7, Colossians 4:10). Fellowship-and this is the main point-is to be exercised actively towards all members of the community. In this sense Fellowship is one of the chief characteristics of the primitive Church of Jerusalem (Acts 2:42); it is characteristic, too, of the relationship between the Pauline communities. Paul praises the Philippians for their Fellow-ship in furthering the gospel (Philippians 1:5), i. In this way they had Fellowship with his afflictions (Philippians 4:14). The churches of Macedonia besought the Apostle ‘with much intreaty in regard of … the Fellowship in the ministering to the saints’ (2 Corinthians 8:4), i. Fellowship, then, becomes a system of mutual help-the care of the poor and the sick, the feeding of widows and orphans, the visiting of prisoners, hospitality, the procuring of labour for travelling workmen (Didache, xii. 3ff,), are some of the proofs of Fellowship
Mark, John - my Fellow workers unto the kingdom of God which have been a comfort unto me"). So in Philemon 1:11-24, he calls Mark "my Fellow laborer.

Communion of the Saints - Now, by virtue of the one life-flood, every limb of the body holds Fellowship with every other, and as long as life lasts that Fellowship is inevitable. Nothing but death can break up the Fellowship, you must tear away the member, or it must of necessity commune with the rest of the body. It is even thus in the body of Christ; no laws can prevent one living member of Christ from Fellowship with every other, the pulse of living Fellowship sends a wave through the whole mystical frame; where there is but one life, Fellowship is an inevitable consequence. If they be alive unto God they may in mistaken conscientiousness deny their Fellow Christians the outward sign of communion, but communion itself falls not under any rule or regulation of theirs. Tie a red tape round your thumb and let it decree that the whole body is out of Fellowship with it; the thumb's decree is either ridiculously inoperative, or else it proves injurious to itself. God has made us one, one Spirit quickens us, and truly our Fellowship is with the Father, and with his Son Jesus; to deny Fellowship with any believer in Jesus is to refuse what you must of necessity give, and to deny in symbol what you must inevitably render in reality

Salt - ...
So Jesus, cf6 "have salt in yourselves, and have peace one with another" (Mark 9:50); as no sacrifice to God, and no food to man, is acceptable without salt, so prayers offered without "peace" of heart toward Fellow men are savourless; a warning to the disciples who had just been disputing with one another, and judging, Fellow men who used Jesus' name though not following the disciples (Mark 9:33-50)
Brethren - clans and single tribes (see Deuteronomy 18:7, where the Levite’s ‘brethren’ are his Fellow-Levites); (4) metaphorical applications which are too general and too various for exact delimitation. The ‘brother’ intended is especially one’s Fellow-Christian, and Mt

the Unmerciful Servant - But during the process of his conversion, and till it was perfected, he both caused himself many stumbles and many falls, and was the cause of many such things to his Fellow-disciples. And how did it all end? Or, is it all ended yet?...
But the same servant went out, and found one of his Fellow-servants which owed him an hundred pence; and he laid his hands on him and took him by the throat, saying, Pay me that thou owest. Now we are such, and our Fellow-servants are such, that they are continually running into all kinds of debt to us, and to all depths of debt. When the Fellow-servants of this unmerciful servant saw him so forget his own ten thousand talents as to take his hundred-pence debtor by the throat and cast him into prison, they were both sorry and angry, and went and told their Lord what had taken place.

Lion - When I hear or see some awful effects of his devices, on the minds of my Fellow creatures and Fellow sinners; oh! how powerfully doth it teach me the blessed consequences of distinguishing grace! Doth he work his devilish purposes on others, and am I preserved from his snare? Doth he accomplish their destruction, and do I escape? Reader! think of this precious subject! How doth it exalt my Lord in the consciousness of preserving grace! And how doth it tend to humble my soul!'...
Occupation (2) - And however far removed our Lord might be in later life from quondam Fellow-craftsmen, this technical education kept Him in touch with His industrial compatriots.

pe'Ter - Peter did not live, as a mere laboring man, in a hut by the seaside, but first at Bethsaida, and afterward in a house at Capernaum belonging to himself or his mother-in-law, which must have been rather a large one, since he received in it not only our Lord and his Fellow disciples, but multitudes who were attracted by the miracles and preaching of Jesus. He and his Fellow disciples looked henceforth upon our Lord as their teacher, but were not commanded to follow him as regular disciples. The special designation of Peter and his eleven Fellow disciples took place some time afterward, when they were set apart as our Lord's immediate attendants
Humanity, Humankind - They have a God-given authority over the material world in which they live (Genesis 1:26; Psalms 8:3-8) and a God-given capacity for Fellowship with the unseen, sovereign, eternal God (Acts 17:26-27).

Jericho - Here, the unfeeling act of passing by a Fellow creature in distress, as the priest and Levite are said to have done, strikes one with horror, as an act almost more than inhuman. And here, too, the compassion of the good Samaritan is doubly virtuous, from the purity of the motive which must have led to it, in a spot where no eyes were fixed on him to draw forth the performance of any duty, and from the bravery which was necessary to admit of a man's exposing himself, by such delay, to the risk of a similar fate to that from which he was endeavouring to rescue his Fellow creature

The meaning would thus be: ‘I beseech thee, Synzygus, truly so named, a Fellow-helper in very deed. ...
The other view, that the word means ‘yokefellow,’ as in classical Greek, is far less probable and at once raises the question as to which of the Apostle’s companions is to be understood by the term.

Fellowship - According to its basic biblical meaning, Fellowship is concerned not with people enjoying each other’s company, but with people participating together in something. Fellowship is communion – having a share in something. ...
Fellowship ‘with’ means sharing ‘in’...
An example of the biblical meaning of Fellowship is the Lord’s Supper, or Holy Communion. The act of believers in eating bread and drinking wine in the Lord’s Supper is an act of Fellowship with Christ, for it is a spiritual sharing in his body and blood. By being united with Christ, believers share in him, have Fellowship with him (1 Corinthians 1:9; Hebrews 3:14). Likewise they have Fellowship with the Father (1 John 1:3) and with the Holy Spirit (2 Corinthians 13:14; Philippians 1:21; Hebrews 6:4), for through faith in Christ they have become sharers in the divine nature (2 Peter 1:4). ...
In all these cases the Fellowship may involve only the individual believer and God. The believer has Fellowship with God, regardless of whether joined by Fellow believers. If others join, however, they collectively have Fellowship with God. Therefore, when the Bible speaks of Christians having Fellowship together, it means that together they have Fellowship with God, not that they enjoy being with each other (1 John 1:3). But by having Fellowship together with God, they will indeed be joined together in a true and happy union (John 17:21-22; 1 Corinthians 10:16-17). ...
Sin spoils the believer’s Fellowship with God. Those who think they can sin as they please and still have Fellowship with God are deceiving themselves. By contrast those who live righteously will enjoy unbroken Fellowship with God, because God in his grace cleanses the sins that they unknowingly commit (1 John 1:6-7). ...
Fellowship with Christ means not only sharing in the blessings that come through his sacrificial death, but also sharing in the sufferings that he endured (Philippians 3:10; 1 Peter 4:12-14; Revelation 1:9). But if people have Fellowship with him in his sufferings, they will also have Fellowship with him in his glory (2 Timothy 2:11-12; 1 Peter 5:1). ...
Sharing in a common possession...
As Christians jointly participate in Christ, so this Fellowship binds them together (Acts 2:42). There is therefore a sense in which they have Fellowship with one another, but again this Fellowship is usually in someone or something that they have as a common possession (Philippians 1:7; Hebrews 3:14; 2 Peter 1:4). Their Fellowship is a joint sharing in a common faith (Titus 1:4), in a common salvation (Judges 1:3) and even in their common sufferings (2 Corinthians 1:7; Revelation 1:9). From this latter example ‘fellowship’ developed the more specialized meaning of ‘financial contribution’ (cf. ...

It is possible that the letter was written by Epaphroditus (that Epaphroditus is mentioned in the 3rd person is no absolute objection to this) if the phrase ‘true yokefellow’ (γνήσιε σύνζυγε, Philippians 4:3) is to be taken as an appellative. Paul with a monetary gift (Philippians 4:18), and his experience is described in the letter: ‘I think it needful to send to you Epaphroditus, my brother, Fellow-worker and Fellow-soldier, your messenger and minister of my need. A certain person (Synzygus) is asked to help in their reconciliation: ‘I would request you (ἐρωτῶ), genuine Synzygus (or yoke-fellow), help those women, inasmuch as they laboured with me in the gospel and with Clement and other Fellow-labourers of mine whose names are in the book of life’ (Philippians 4:2-4). Some take the writer to mean that Clement and his Fellows should help in settling this difference (Lightfoot, Zahn); others-and this seems the only feasible view-that the women laboured with the apostles and with Clement. ...
He cannot otherwise regard them-his affections being witness-for, indeed, they are Fellow-participators with him in grace because thus they have shown their identity with him both in his chains and in his defence and confirmation of the gospel
Theophilus (2) - Furthermore, if there is no other instance of one Christian hailing another by a secular title in the NT, on the other hand there is no case of a Christian writing for the benefit of any save Fellow-Christians. For this there is no evidence whatsoever, and we have already seen that there was no necessary incongruity in applying such a title of honour, pagan though it was, to a Fellow-Christian
Body - Thus “flesh (and bone)” designates kinship (Genesis 2:23 ; Genesis 29:14 ; Genesis 37:27 ; Leviticus 18:6 ) and Fellow human beings in general (Isaiah 40:5-6 ). In the body the person lives out the “I” of human existence, relating to God and to Fellow humans
Faithfulness - ...
This Divine faithfulness was made by the apostles the ground of forgiveness and cleansing to those who confessed their sins (1 John 1:9), of deliverance in temptation from the power of evil (1 Corinthians 6:13, 2 Thessalonians 3:3), and of confidence in the final salvation of those who were called into the Fellowship of Jesus Christ (1 Corinthians 1:9, 1 Thessalonians 5:24). ...
In the apostolic life faithfulness to friends, and especially to the se who were Fellow-workers, was greatly prized. Paul speaks in the Epistle to the Colossians of Tychicus his messenger as ‘the beloved brother and faithful minister and Fellow-servant in the Lord’ (Colossians 4:7), and of Onesimus as ‘the faithful and beloved brother’ (Colossians 4:9), he has before his mind chiefly the fidelity of these two brethren to himself the apostle and prisoner of the Lord, In 2 Tim
Severus, Patriarch of Antioch - At Alexandria his reception by his Fellow-religionists was enthusiastic. A vehement dispute arose between Severus and his Fellow-exile Julian of Halicarnassus as to the corruptibility of our Lord's human body before His resurrection
Charities - Charity to man is the fulfilment of duties over and beyond those of justice to our Fellow creatures, whom we recognize as having the same nature, the same destiny, the same Redeemer as ourselves. Fortunately there have always been individuals profoundly conscious of the misery of their Fellows, who consecrate themselves to the struggle against this misery, and who arouse society to take action
Servant of the Lord - This had some meaning in relation to Israel’s experiences among hostile nations, and considerably more meaning in relation to the godly believers’ experiences among their ungodly Fellow Israelites
Priesthood of the Believer - All of us have the opportunity at some time to be a special channel of blessing and help to a Fellow believer on the journey
Mark (John) - Paul, and was his ‘fellow-worker’ and a ‘comfort’ to him ( Colossians 4:11 , Philippians 1:24 ), and useful to him ‘for ministering’ ( 2 Timothy 4:11 ) this was Mark’s special office, not to be an original organizer but a useful assistant (Swete)
Adam - The words "subdue, " "rule, " "under his feet" (Genesis 1:28 ; Psalm 8:6 ) suggest kingship over nature but not over his Fellow man
Uriah - Eliam son of Ahithophel being one of his Fellow officers (2 Samuel 23:; 2 Samuel 23:39), Uriah naturally became acquainted with Bathsheba (an undesigned coincidence in Scripture confirming its truth) and married her
Vengeance - In the context of loving one's neighbor, human revenge toward Fellow Hebrews was forbidden (Leviticus 19:17-18 ; compare Deuteronomy 32:35 ), but nqm may be used of legitimate punishment for a wrong ( Exodus 21:20 ; compare Exodus 21:23-25 ; Leviticus 24:19 ; Deuteronomy 19:21 )
Deacon - That the work of the deacon and his Fellow-servant the deaconess (wh
Philip the Apostle - Instead of going direct to Jesus, he first tells his Fellow townsman Andrew (a mark of humility and discreet reverence), who had been the first to come to Jesus; then both together tell Jesus
Faithfulness - ” Man may show himself “faithful” in his relations with his Fellow men ( Lucian - " He has no farther accusation to make against them here, except the ease with which they allowed their benevolence toward their Fellow Christians to be abused by impostors, in which there may be much truth, but there is, nevertheless, some exaggeration
Refuge - In order to provide for the security of those who, without design, might happen to kill a person, in whatever manner it should be, the Lord commanded Moses to appoint six cities of refuge, Exodus 21:18 ; Numbers 35:11 , &c, that whoever should undesignedly spill the blood of a Fellow creature, might retire thither, and have time to prepare for his defence before the judges: so that the relatives of the deceased might not pursue and kill him
Mystery - Paul applied in a peculiar sense to the calling of the Gentiles, which he styles "the mystery,"...
Ephesians 3:3-6 ; and "the mystery of Christ, which in other generations was not made known to the sons of men, as it is now revealed to his holy Apostles and prophets by the Spirit, that the Gentiles should be Fellow heirs, and of the same body, and partakers of Christ by the Gospel,"...
Romans 16:25 ; Ephesians 1:9 ; Ephesians 3:9 ; Ephesians 6:19 ; Colossians 1:26-27 ; Colossians 4:3
Add - This less intensive word may have been purposely used there by the Apostle to suggest that he described to his Fellow-apostles the character of his teaching, not to obtain their approval or their advice concerning it, but simply that they might have the facts of the case before them on which they were shortly to adjudicate
Romans, Epistle to the - Nowhere do his earnest and affectionate nature and his tact and delicacy in handling unwelcome topics appear more strongly than when he is dealing with the rejection of his Fellow country men the Jews
Nicopolis - Paul may have visited the island with his Fellow-worker, and left him to labour there, shortly before his final visit to Corinth
Promise - The blessings of the promise are those which Christ brings (‘fellow-partakers of the promise in Christ Jesus through the gospel’ [4])
Jeroboam - The ambitious Jeroboam cleverly used his position to gain a following among his Fellow northerners, in opposition to the southerner Solomon, whose policies he found oppressive
Dositheus (1), Leader of Jewish Sect - The Homilies make Simon and Dositheus Fellow disciples of John the Baptist, to whom in several places the author shews hostility. Recognitions and Homilies agree that Simon after his enrolment among the disciples of Dositheus, by his disparagement among his Fellow-disciples of their master's pretensions, provoked Dositheus to smite him with a staff, which through Simon's magical art passed through his body as if it had been smoke
Bread - So mean and contemptible, in the estimation of the numerous and well-appointed armies of Midian, was Gideon, with his handful of undisciplined militia, that he seems to have been compared to bread of this inferior quality, which may account for the ready interpretation of the dream of the Midianite respecting him: "And when Gideon was come, behold, there was a man that told a dream unto his Fellow, and said, Behold, I dreamed a dream, and lo, a cake of barley bread tumbled into the host of Midian, and came unto a tent and smote it that it fell, and overturned it, that the tent lay along. And his Fellow answered and said, This is nothing else save the sword of Gideon, the son of Joash, a man of Israel; for into his hand hath God delivered Midian, and all the host
Love - As a result of such devoted obedience they will learn more of the meaning of God’s love and so will increasingly experience joyful Fellowship with him (Psalms 116:1-4; John 14:21-23; 1 Corinthians 2:9; 1 Corinthians 8:3; 1 Peter 1:8; 1 John 4:7; 1 John 4:12; 1 John 4:19). Likewise they are deceiving themselves if they claim to love God but do not love their Fellow human beings (Romans 13:10; 1 John 3:10; 1 John 3:17; 1 John 4:8; 1 John 4:20). ...
Christians should exercise this love towards everyone, and in particular towards Fellow Christians (John 13:34; John 15:12-17; Galatians 6:10; 1 Peter 3:8; 1 John 3:16-17)
Lot (1) - ...
The Sodomites' words, "this one Fellow came in to sojourn, and he will needs be a judge" refer evidently to Lot's remonstrances with them which Peter presupposes. If there had been "ten" such "fellows" in Sodom Jehovah would have spared it (Genesis 18:32)
Gibeon - The issue was unexpected; for each of the men slew his Fellow, and thus they all perished
Religion - By natural religion is meant that knowledge, veneration, and love of God, and the practice of those duties to him, our Fellow-creatures, and ourselves, which are discoverable by the right exercise of our rational faculties, from considering the nature and perfections of God, and our relation to him and to one another
Obedience - The law of God in hearts and minds will preclude any sinful Acts against God and Fellow humankind
Trespass - The word further signifies man’s unfaithfulness to his Fellow man; particularly it is illustrative of unfaithfulness in marriage: “If any man’s wife go aside, and commit a trespass against him, And a man lie with her carnally …” ( Luke, Gospel of - ...
On the other hand, it is evident that Luke's presentation of the service of Christ on earth is in correspondence with the service of 'the apostle of the Gentiles,' whose Fellow-labourer and companion Luke was
Titus - Paul in his second apostolical journey, and from that time he seems to have been constantly employed by him in the propagation of the Gospel; he calls him his partner and Fellow-helper, 2 Corinthians 8:23
Breastplate - Paul seems especially to allude to this translation of Urim and Thummim by the Septuagint, when he speaks of himself and his Fellow labourers, "commending themselves to every man's conscience by manifestation of the truth;" in opposition to those who by their errors and compliances with the Jewish prejudices, or with the philosophical taste of the Greeks, obscured the truth, and rendered ambiguous the guidance of Christian doctrine
Jesus Christ - It was the name of the father of Elymas the sorcerer, Acts 13:6 ; and of Justus, a Fellow-laborer and friend of Paul, Colossians 4:11
Honor - 1); (9) as an advantage to be given by believers one to another instead of claiming it for self, Romans 12:10 ; (10) to be given to elders that rule well ("double honor"), 1 Timothy 5:17 (here the meaning may be an honorarium); (11) to be given by servants to their master, 1 Timothy 6:1 ; (12) to be given to wives by husbands, 1 Peter 3:7 ; (13) said of the husband's use of the wife, in contrast to the exercise of the passion of lust, 1 Thessalonians 4:4 (some regard the "vessel" here as the believer's body); (14) of that bestowed upon; parts of the body, 1 Corinthians 12:23,24 ; (15) of that which belongs to the builder of a house in contrast to the house itself, Hebrews 3:3 ; (16) of that which is not enjoyed by a prophet in his own country, John 4:44 ; (17) of that bestowed by the inhabitants of Melita upon Paul and his Fellow-passengers, in gratitude for his benefits of healing, Acts 28:10 ; (18) of the festive honor to be possessed by nations, and brought into the Holy City, the heavenly Jerusalem, Revelation 21:26 (in some mss
Giving - He promises his special care and a lasting reward for those who give generously because they love God and their Fellow human beings (Matthew 6:19-20; 2 Corinthians 9:6-12; Philippians 4:17; Philippians 4:19). ...
Christians likewise are to give to the poor and needy, particularly those within the Fellowship of the church (Luke 6:30; Luke 6:35; Luke 12:33; Acts 11:29; Romans 12:13; Romans 15:26; Galatians 6:10)
Evil - ...
God wanted people to live in a relationship of love with him and with their Fellow human beings; but they could not love if they were not free
Perpetua, Vibia - She and her Fellow-martyrs were baptized after their arrest, possibly before their transference to the public prison (cf
Lamentations - To express this in a form suitable for use by his Fellow countrymen was a relief by affording vent to his own deep sorrow; at the same time it was edifying to them to have an inspired form for giving legitimate expression to theirs. ...
He also indirectly teaches his Fellow countrymen that "searching our ways and turning again to the Lord," instead of complaining against what is the punishment due for sins, is the true way of obtaining deliverance from Him who "doth not afflict willingly the children of men
Vengeance (2) - ‘Enemy’ must be blotted out of the vocabulary of the follower of Christ, at least as a category in which any of his Fellow-men may be included. He even makes God’s forgiveness of a man depend on the man’s forgiveness of his Fellow (Matthew 6:14; Matthew 18:35, Mark 11:25 f. His aim as a religious Teacher, as the Sent of God, was to renew the sin-broken Fellowship between men and God, to make men sons of God; but the indispensable condition of sonship is unity of nature
Duty - ]'>[2] ‘will succour, will do good, for he is born to assist his Fellow, to labour for the welfare of mankind; but he will feel no pity. Am I to refuse either to kill my Fellow-men or to defend my country? Am I to tell a lie, or to become the accomplice, however unwilling, in the murder of my friend?* Titus, Epistle to - The appointment of presbyters was left entirely in the hands of Titus; but while this was so, it is evident that it would he necessary for him to consult the congregations over whom the elders were to be appointed, for he is charged to select only those whose reputation should be ‘blameless’ in the eyes of their Fellow-Christians
Samaritan, the Good - ‘Neighbour’ was defined both by the Law and by the Rabbis as a Fellow-Israelite, ‘a son of thy people,’‡ Struggles of Soul - ...
What struggles of soul must have resulted from the thwarting of His love and grace by the misunderstanding or unbelief of His relatives (Mark 3:31-35), His disciples (Matthew 15:17; Matthew 16:9; Matthew 26:31, Mark 14:27), His Fellow-townsmen (Mark 6:6), and the Jerusalem which He so loved that He wept over it (Luke 13:34; Luke 19:41)! He strove to turn Judas from his betrayal (John 6:70, Matthew 17:22; Matthew 26:23, John 13:27, Luke 22:48), and to save Peter from his denial (Luke 22:32)

Reprobate - It was in this spirit that Ignatius, on the way to martyrdom at Rome, entreated the prayers of his Fellow-Christians so as to be found worthy of the lot he had set before him, that in the end he might not be found ‘rejected’ ἀδόκιμος) (Ignatius, ad Trall

Matthew 18:26 ; Matthew 18:29
True, Truly, Truth - ...
A — 3: γνήσιος (Strong's #1103 — Adjective — gnesios — gnay'-see-os ) primarily "lawfully begotten" (akin to ginomai, "to become"), hence, "true, genuine, sincere," is used in the Apostle's exhortation to his "true yoke-fellow" in Philippians 4:3
Slave, Slavery - Though the master is here an Amorite, the cases of runaway slaves in Israel bear testimony to their sufferings even at the hands of their Fellow-countrymen; cf. Deuteronomy interprets the Exodus law correctly as a prohibition against stealing a Fellow-countryman
Angels - Our Fellow servants, "sent forth unto ministry for the sake of them who shall be heirs of salvation" (Hebrews 1:14), i. When man fell by evil angels, with beautiful propriety it was ordered that other angels, holy and unfallen, should minister for God in His reparation of the evil caused to man by their fallen Fellow spirits
Imitation - Francis? (3) He was a servant of his Fellow-men. Our Fellow-men, even our Christian brethren, are only thought of as hindrances to Divine communion, tempters who threaten to impede our sanctification
Corinthians, Epistles to the - He placed the ministry of himself and Apollos in its true light: they were Fellow-labourers in God's husbandry. Their Fellowship with the death of Christ at the Lord's table is introduced, showing that it signifies communion with the body and blood of Christ (as in the Peace Offering, in which part was burnt on the altar; part eaten by the priest; and part by the offerer): hence they could not also have communion with idolatry. In chapter 10 there is the responsibility of those who have Fellowship with the Lord's death, and in this chapter the privilege of remembering the Lord. ...
2 Corinthians 6 : He shows how he and his Fellow-labourers commended themselves in everything as God's ministers
Blasphemy (2) - The evil eye is followed by the evil tongue, the one by look and the other by speech expressing malignity towards a Fellow-man. As railing against our Fellow-men, it comes in a catalogue of sins together with the most heinous—‘murders, adulteries,’ etc
Suffering - He was so identified with his Fellow human beings that God’s judgment on sinful people fell upon him
Thomas - On the next Lord's day, Thomas, laying aside his morbid isolation, attended the weekly assembly of disciples; though the doors were shut Jesus came and stood in the midst with His wonted salutation, cf6 "Peace be unto you"; then saith He to Thomas, with grave yet tender reproof (showing that He knew all that had passed in Thomas's mind and all he had said to his Fellow disciples), cf6 "reach here thy finger, and behold My hands, and reach here thy hand, and thrust it into My side; and be ("become", ginou ) not faithless but believing"
Sisters - There is but one incidental reference to their existence (Mark 6:3 = Matthew 13:56 αἱ ἀδελφαί αὐτοῦ) by His Fellow-townsmen of Nazareth, who were astonished and offended by His assumed claims to be their religious Teacher
Promise - , Esther 4:7 , Matthew 14:7 , Mark 14:11 , Acts 7:5 , 2 Peter 2:19 ) the reference is to a man’s promises to his Fellow-man ; once only ( Acts 23:21 ) the noun has this meaning in the NT
Phar'Isees, - (Matthew 6:2,6,16 ; 23:5,6 ; Luke 14:7 ) Indeed the whole spirit of their religion was summed up not in confession of sin and in humility, but in a proud self righteousness at variance with any true conception of man's relation to either God or his Fellow creatures
Pontus - ...
Aquila, the Fellow-worker of St
Meekness (2) - That is to say, it is conceived as a disposition restricted in its exercise to a man’s relation with his Fellow-men. That ‘the meek’ of the Beatitude have so often been exclusively conceived as those who are peaceable and unvindictive in their dealings with their Fellow-men, is due to the fact that the Greek conception of πραΰτης* Minister, Ministration - defraying the cost of public choruses, or of the training of athletes, or of feasting one’s Fellow-tribesmen (Xen. So, when we follow His example and are lifted out of ourselves by His Spirit of ministering love, everything that came to Him will come to us, according to the measure in which we, who are infinitely inferior to Him, will be found meet for it,—God’s approval of our life, increasing influence for good, that true greatness which consists in our becoming better able to elevate and bless our Fellow-men (cf. At His coming in glory, Christ will declare His love to those who have loved, and will admit them as ‘joint-heirs with Himself’; but He will reject as unmeet for companionship with Him those who have not taken the position among their Fellow-men which He showed them how to take when He said, Ἐγὼ δέ εἰμι ἐν μέσῳ ὑμῶν ὡς ὁ διακονῶν (Luke 22:27, cf. ...
Later Stoicism ‘sometimes expressed with much warmth the recognition of the universal Fellowship and natural mutual claims of human beings as such’ (Sidgwick, Hist
Liberius, Bishop of Rome - ) there is a letter purporting to be addressed by Liberius to his "beloved brethren and Fellow-bishops throughout the East," declaring that he agrees and communicates with them; and that Athanasius, having been summoned to Rome and refused to come, is out of communion with himself and the Roman church. That you may be assured of my good faith in thus writing, know that my lord and brother Demophilus has deigned in his benevolence to expound to me the true Catholic faith which was treated, expounded, and received at Sirmium by many brethren and Fellow-bishops of ours. And I desire you to make known to our brethren and Fellow-bishops Epictetus and Auxentius that with them I have peace and ecclesiastical communion. ...
In the letter to the Eastern bishops Liberius speaks of having already accepted the exposition of the faith agreed upon "by many brethren and Fellow-bishops" at Sirmium
Golden Rule - From a Jewish perspective the words "fellow covenant member, " "brother, " and "neighbor" were synonymous
Covenant - The covenant alluded to in Hosea 6:7 margin is not with Adam (KJV "men" is better, compare Psalms 82:7), for nowhere else is the expression "covenant" applied to Adam's relation to God, though the thing is implied in Romans 5:12-19; 1 Corinthians 15:22; but the Sinaitic covenant which Israel transgressed as lightly as "men" break their every day covenants with their Fellow men, or else they have transgressed like other "men," though distinguished above all men by extraordinary spiritual privileges
Philippians, the Epistle to the - By the fatigues of the journey that "brother, companion in labour, and Fellow soldier" brought on himself dangerous sickness (Philippians 2:25-30)
Covetousness - And the almighty power to this end is the holy spirit of the gospel, which on the one hand is a spirit of loving trust towards God the Father in providence, and on the other a tender feeling towards Fellow-mortals which prompts to ready sacrifice of all things to their good
Building - With a tender smile of blame he calls them ‘babes in Christ,’ who have not grown into the height and freedom of their calling as God’s Fellow-workers (συνεργοί). Longfellow’s poem The Builders, and O

Eustathius (3), Bishop of Berrhoea - 20) recognized by Athanasius as a worthy Fellow-labourer for the orthodox faith (Athan
Love-Feasts - Of this sort were the συσσιτια of the Cretans; and the φιδιτια of the Lacedaemonians, instituted by Lycurgus, and so called παρα της φιλιας , (the λ being changed into δ according to their usual orthography,) as denoting that love and friendship which they were intended to promote among neighbours and Fellow citizens
Building - With a tender smile of blame he calls them ‘babes in Christ,’ who have not grown into the height and freedom of their calling as God’s Fellow-workers (συνεργοί). Longfellow’s poem The Builders, and O
Slave, Slavery - Augustine could explain it only as a result of sin, so sure was he that it was not the Divine intention that man should own and lord it over his Fellow-man (de Civ. Tacitus mentions the case of Pedanius Secundus, prefect of the city, who had been murdered by one of his slaves, and under a law requiring that, should a slave kill his master, all the slaves of the same household should forfeit their lives, some 400 of the culprit’s Fellow-slaves were put to death at Rome a. If their masters were Fellow-believers, they were not to despise them, ‘because they are brethren. The sons of freedom themselves sometimes succumb to the temptation to make slaves practically of their weaker Fellow-men
Justice (2) - We are then ‘just before God’; and from 1 John 3:10; 1 John 3:17; 1 John 4:20-21; 1 John 5:1 we learn that only when man responds to God’s claim can he fulfil the obligations of love and justice to his Fellow-men. Why should they show favour to those whom God had not honoured? The Greek was bound by moralties to his Fellow-citizens, but between him and the barbarians there was no moral reciprocity; if he was conscious of any obligation, it was an obligation to do them all the injury he could. According to the Golden Rule, we are to regard our Fellow-man as an alter ego, to put ourselves in his place, and judge his claims or needs and our duties from his point of view (Philippians 2:4-8)
Zechariah, the Book of - At Zechariah 13:7 the prophecy of Messiah's betrayal (Zechariah 11:4; Zechariah 11:10; Zechariah 11:13-14) is resumed, "Awake O sword against My Shepherd and against the Man that is My Fellow (the mighty Man of My union, 'geber 'amithiy ,' one indissolubly joined by a common nature; contrast the Levitical law against injuring one's Fellow. How extreme the need which required God not to spare His own Fellow: Romans 8:32), saith the Lord of hosts"; and the consequent punishment of the Jews
Seven Words, the - This man had been one of a band of robbers, perhaps the same band to which Barabbas belonged, a band of men living wild and reckless lives; and now both he and his Fellow, having fallen victims to the power against which they have been in revolt, are suffering the extreme penalty of the law. Perhaps this was not the first time that this man had seen the Christ; he may have been among those who listened to His words on some previous occasion, he may have seen some of His miracles; now, however, he is brought face to face with the power of His love, conviction dawns within him, he sees himself in his true light; turning to his Fellow, he says, ‘Dost not thou fear God, seeing thou art in the same condemnation? And we indeed justly, for we receive the due reward of our deeds; but this man hath done nothing amiss’ (Luke 23:40-41)
Thessalonians, the Epistles to the - Aristarchus was his "companion in travel," and shared his perils at Ephesus and his shipwreck, and was his "fellow prisoner" and "fellow labourer" at Rome (Acts 27:2; Colossians 4:10; Philemon 1:24)
Eustathius, Bishop of Sebaste - Eustathius and his Fellow-delegates, now recognized as true Catholics, were acknowledged as the rightful bishops of their sees. He recommended persons as Fellow-helpers who, as Basil bitterly complains, turned out to be spies of his actions and words, interpreting all in a malevolent sense and reporting to their chief (ib
Barnabas - As Fellow countrymen, they would have mutual friends
Colosse - This accounts for their personal acquaintance with, and attachment to, Paul and his Fellow ministers, and their salutations to him
Mary Magdalene - "She stood without at the sepulchre weeping," and as she wept she stooped down and looked into the sepulchre, and seeth two angels in white sitting, the one at the head and the other at the feet, where the body of Jesus had lain; they say cf6 "why weepest thou?"...
She saith, her one absorbing thought being the absence of Him whom she had designed to lavish her reverential love upon, "because they have taken away my Lord (her phrase to the angels, as it was 'the Lord' to her Fellow disciples Peter and John), and I (no longer 'we' as in John 20:2) know not where they have laid Him
Reconcilation - God's creatures defied the divine purpose for life and destroyed the Fellowship for which they were intended. They substituted for the true foundation of Fellowship a whole series of relationships which formed a kingdom of evil and promoted estrangement from God. ...
The New Testament not only reveals God's act of reconciliation in Christ, but it also exhorts us to be reconciled to Fellow human beings
Nicodemus - " Many of Nicodemus' Fellow rulers attributed Jesus' miracles to Beelzebub; Nicodemus on the contrary avows " we (including others besides himself) know Thou art a teacher come from God, for no man can do these miracles which Thou doest, except God be with him
Church, Gallican - However unprincipled and cruel the French revolutionists have been, and however much the sufferers, as Fellow-creatures, are entitled to our pity; yet, considering the event as the just retribution of God, we are constrained to say, "Thou art righteous, O Lord, who art, and wast, and shalt be, because thou hast judged thus; for they have shed the blood of saints and prophets, and thou hast given them blood to drink; for they are worthy
Titus - ...
Next, Titus went to Macedon, where he rejoined Paul who had been eagerly looking for him at Troas (Acts 20:1; Acts 20:6; 2 Corinthians 2:12-13); "Titus my brother" (2 Corinthians 7:6; 2 Corinthians 8:23), also "my partner and Fellow helper concerning you

Aurelius, Marcus, Roman Emperor - They not only provoked the gods, and refused to join in sacrifices to appease them, but triumphed in their Fellow-citizens' miseries
Community of Goods - But so much may be said, that the NT principles are wholly inconsistent with the view that the Christian man has any absolute right of property as against his Fellow-man
Gideon - This act embitters Gideon’s Fellow-townsmen against him; they are, however, quieted down by the boldness and shrewdness of Gideon’s father
Atonement - As a strong persuasive to that love and pity which we should show on all occasions to our Fellow creatures, 1 John 4:11
Angels - When John fell down to worship the angel in the Revelation, being overpowered by reason of the stupendous things revealed, he was on two occasions restrained from worshipping his 'fellow servant,' as in Revelation 19:10 ; Revelation 22:9
Andrew - When his Fellow-disciples and bishops urgently pressed him, he said, “Fast with me [2] to-day, for three days, and let us tell one another any revelation which may be made to us, either for or against [3]
Ephesus - Overjoyed with the account which their messenger brought him of the steadfastness of their faith, and the ardency of their love to all the saints, Ephesians 1:15 ; and, transported with the consideration of the unsearchable wisdom of God displayed in the work of man's redemption, and of his amazing love toward the Gentiles, in introducing them, as Fellow-heirs with the Jews, into the kingdom of Christ, he soars into the most exalted contemplation of those sublime topics, and gives utterance to his thoughts in language at once rich and varied
Pilate - Of his Fellow sufferer on the cross
Reformation - This point, in reference to what he accomplished, is really of little moment; but there cannot be a doubt that although he might, throughout his arduous struggle, be guided occasionally by inferior considerations, he was eventually, at least, chiefly animated by the noble and disinterested wish to emancipate his Fellow creatures from what he was convinced was the direct and most infatuated spiritual oppression; that he looked to Heaven for support, and that such support he largely received
Law - Tom Touchy is a Fellow famous for taking the law of every body
Philip the Evangelist - ...
The conversions of Simon and his Fellow-Samaritans represented a great step in advance in the widening of the Christian Church
Prayer - It is essential to our peace and felicity, and is the happy mean of our carrying on and enjoying Fellowship with God. It is very proper, at solemn seasons of worship, to read some part of the word of God, or some spiritual treatise written by holy men; or to converse with Fellow Christians about divine things, or to spend some time in recollection or meditation of things that belong to religion: this will not only supply us with divine matter, but will compose our thoughts to a solemnity. We should not run from one part to another by starts, and sudden wild thoughts, and then return often to the same part again, going backward and forward in confusion: this bewilders the mind of him that prays, disgusts our Fellow-worshippers, and injures their devotion. We should treasure up such expressions, especially, as we read in Scripture, and such as we have found in other books of devotion, or such as we have heard Fellow Christians make use of, whereby our own hearts have been sensibly moved and warmed. On the other hand, we should avoid mean and coarse, and too familiar expressions; such as excite any contemptible or ridiculous ideas; such as raise any improper or irreverent thoughts in the mind, or base and impure images, for these much injure the devotion of our Fellow-worshippers
Language of the nt - Unification of speech was a natural result, when Greeks from different cities became Fellow-soldiers in Alexander’s army, or Fellow-colonists in his new towns
Disciples - ” There is, for example, a striking absence of the term with reference to Timothy (2 Corinthians 1:1 ; Philippians 1:1 ; Colossians 1:1 ; 1 Thessalonians 1:1 ; 2 Thessalonians 1:1 ), Sosthenes (1 Corinthians 1:1 ), and Silas (Galatians 1:18-19 , 2 Thessalonians 1:1 ), who were certainly not only Paul's Fellow workers but also preachers of the gospel (compare 2 Corinthians 1:19 ). Thus, others in the Pauline missionary party were called, for example, “brother,” “fellow worker,” or “bond servant” (Romans 16:3 ; Philippians 2:25 ; Colossians 4:7-14 ; 1 Thessalonians 3:1 ); but the term “apostle” had a more exclusive, and thus more restricted, meaning
the Slothful Servant Who Hid His Lord's Money - He felt himself to be as good a man and as deserving as any of his Fellow-servants, and he may very well have been in the right in so thinking and in so saying. If they had as large a field as that five-talented Fellow-servant of theirs; if they had a city pulpit; if they had a people or education and intelligence, they would prepare for the Sabbath in a very different fashion from what they do
Essenes - So these men, knit into closely coherent groups, mainly in Judæa, found the satisfactions of life in deepening Fellowship, and an ever more intense devotion to the ideal of Levitical perfection. An Essene of the higher class became unclean if a Fellow-Essene of lower degree so much as touched his garment
Fill, Fill up - "fruit"); with the knowledge of God's will, Colossians 1:9 ; with abundance through material supplies by Fellow believers, Philippians 4:18 ; (d) of the hearts of believers as the seat of emotion and volition, John 16:6 (sorrow) Acts 5:3 (deceitfulness); (e) of the unregenerate who refuse recognition of God, Romans 1:29 ; (II) "to accomplish, complete, fulfill
Temperance - While righteousness represents his attitude towards his Fellow-men and godliness his attitude towards God, soberness represents his attitude towards himself
Fellowship - “Fellowship” is the English translation of words from the Hebrew stem hbr and the Greek stem koin -. A most important dimension in the life of these heberim was a sharing together in the study of Scripture and law, and table Fellowship. For example, in Jewish literature produced during the intertestamental period, called the Apocrypha, the Greek root koin - was used to express ideas such as friendship (Sirach 42:3 ) and table Fellowship (Sirach 6:10 ). The New Testament uses the koin - stem to speak of the believer's relationship with Christ and the mutual Fellowship among Christians. ...
The Gospels record no sayings of Jesus in which He used the koin -stem to describe “fellowship” among disciples, though certainly the close association shared by Jesus and His followers laid the foundation for the church's post-Easter understanding of Fellowship. On the basis of faith believers have Fellowship with the Son ( 1 Corinthians 1:9 ). We share Fellowship in the gospel (1 Corinthians 9:23 ; Philippians 1:5 ). Believers also share together a Fellowship with the Holy Spirit (2 Corinthians 13:14 ), which the apostle understood as a most important bond for unity in the life of the church (Philippians 2:1-4 ). Thus Paul forbad his readers from partaking in pagan religious meals, which would result in sharing “fellowship” with evil, supernatural forces or demons (1 Corinthians 10:19-21 ). ...
Immediately after Paul spoke of “fellowship” with Christ through participation in the Lord's Supper (1 Corinthians 10:16 ), he said, “since there is one bread, we who are many are one body” (1 Corinthians 10:17 NAS). This illustrates clearly Paul's belief that Fellowship with Christ was to issue into Fellowship between believers. Because the “fellowship” among the Corinthians themselves was so perverted, Paul could go so far as to say “when you come together, it is not really to eat the Lord's supper” ( 1 Corinthians 11:20 NRSV). ...
Paul believed that Christians were to share with one another what they had to offer to assist Fellow believers. Though it is not translated “fellowship” in English versions, Paul actually used the term koinonia to denote the financial contribution which he was collecting from Gentile believers to take to Jerusalem for the relief of the saints who lived there ( Romans 15:26 ; 2 Corinthians 8:4 ; 2 Corinthians 9:13 ). Such mutual sharing of one's blessings is a clear and profound expression of Christian Fellowship. When Paul wished to express the essential oneness of the apostolic leadership of the church he said concerning James, the Lord's brother, Peter, and John, that they “gave to me the right hands of Fellowship” ( Galatians 2:9 ). When we realize that this expression of koinonia came on the heels of one of the most hotly debated issues in the early church, namely the status of Gentiles in the people of God ( Galatians 2:1-10 ; Acts 15:1 ), we can see how powerful and all encompassing Paul's notion of Christian Fellowship actually was. He affirmed emphatically that Fellowship with God and the Son was to issue in Fellowship with the other believers ( 1 John 1:3 , 1 John 1:6-7 )
Leviticus - Two chief subjects are handled:...
(1) Leviticus 1-16, the fundamental ordinances of Israel's Fellowship with Jehovah;...
(2) Leviticus 17-27, the laws for hallowing Israel in this covenant Fellowship. ...
Second;...
(1) Israel's life as holy and separate from heathendom, in food, marriage, and toward Fellow men, Leviticus 17-20; the mutual connection of Leviticus 18; Leviticus 19; Leviticus 20, is marked by recurring phrases, "I are the Lord," "ye shall be holy, for I
Micah, Book of - Those who committed such crimes were Fellow Israelites (Micah 2:6-11 )
Lord's Day - This worship of Christians with their Jewish Fellow-countrymen secured the continuation of the Church of God from one dispensation to another; while their exclusively Christian Eucharists consolidated the Church and enabled it to discover itself
No - The vocal Memnon and its Fellow are a quarter of a mile further S
Slave, Slavery - These books frequently use the primary term for slave, doulos [ Romans 1:1 ; Philippians 1:1 ; 2 Timothy 2:24 ; Titus 1:1 ; James 1:1 ; 1 Peter 2:16 ; 2 Peter 1:1 ), to Fellow believers (2 Corinthians 4:5 ), and even to sin (Romans 6:20 )
Nations, the - Early in his ministry he directed his efforts toward his Fellow Jews
Giving - The grace of Christ had come near to him, and he, in that high Fellowship, could not but be gracious. Once and again before His gracious acts of healing or of bounty, it is said, ‘he was moved with compassion’ (Matthew 9:36; Matthew 15:32, Mark 6:34); and His Fellow-feeling found expression in the sending forth of the Twelve, the feeding of the multitude, and in teaching
Kindness - The context of Colossians 3:12 likewise emphasizes the forbearing and forgiving disposition required of the Christian in view of the forgiveness received from God, and the terms with which χρηστότης is here associated (‘lowliness,’ ‘meekness,’ ‘longsuffering’) are again terms that describe benevolence over against faults observed in Fellow-Christians
Silas or Silyanus - Scarcely more success has attended the various critical attempts to identify Silas or Silvanus with other friends and Fellow-labourers of Paul, such as Luke (Van Vloten) and Titus (Märcker and Seufert)
Servant - " In this equality of nature and of essence, he is not JEHOVAH'S Servant, for he is JEHOVAH'S Fellow
Citizenship - Paul referred to in Romans 16 were his Fellow-tribesmen of Tarsus
Liberality of Sentiment - Let the fierce bull shake his head, and nod his horn, and threaten his enemy, who seeks to eat his flesh, and wear his coat, and live by his death: poor Fellow! his life is in danger; I forgive his bellowing and his rage
Blindness (2) - ‘This Fellow doth not cast out devils, but by Beelzebub the prince of the devils
Dish - Matthew in making Jesus, by a sign (ἐκεῖνός ἐστιν ᾧ ἐγὼ βάψω τὸ ψωμίον καὶ δώσω αὐτῷ, John 13:26), point him out to his Fellow-disciples
Apostolic Fathers - ...
The so-called Epistle of Barnabas is neither a letter nor the work of Barnabas, Paul's companion and Fellow missionary
Water - “Water” of oppression or affliction is so designated because it is drunk in prison: “Put this Fellow in the prison, and feed him with bread of affliction and with water of affliction, until I come in peace” (1 Kings 22:27)
Temperance - While righteousness represents his attitude towards his Fellow-men and godliness his attitude towards God, soberness represents his attitude towards himself
Peter - He lived first at Bethsaida, then in Capernaum, in a house either his own or his mother-in-law's, large enough to receive Christ and his Fellow apostles and some of the multitude who thronged about Him. ) The Jerusalem decree only recognized Gentiles as Fellow Christians on light conditions, it did not admit them necessarily to social intercourse Though Peter and Paul rightly inferred the latter, yet their recognition of the ceremonial law (Acts 18:18-21; Acts 20:16; Acts 21:18-24) palliates Peter's conduct, if it were not for its inconsistency (through fear of the Judaizers) which is the point of Paul's reproof. 33) says that at his Fellow Christians' solicitation he was fleeing from Rome at early dawn, when he met the Lord, and at His feet asked "Lord, where goest Thou?" His reply "I go to be crucified afresh" turned Peter back to a joyful martyrdom
Joannes, Bishop of Antioch - His old companion and Fellow-townsman Nestorius had just been appointed to the see of Constantinople, and had inaugurated his episcopate with a sermon in the metropolitan church repudiating the term "Mother of God," θεοτόκος . To support their evidently failing cause, John and his Fellow-deputies wrote to some leading prelates of the West, the bps. John and his Fellow-bishops next sought the intervention of Acacius of Beroea, who was universally venerated, in the hope that his influence might render Cyril more willing to accept the terms (Baluz
Augustinus, Aurelius - "I began to love him, not at first as a teacher of the truth, which I despaired of finding in Thy Church, but as a Fellow-creature who was kind to me. —One day a Christian Fellow-townsman Pontitianus who held an appointment at court called to visit Alypius. After the baptism, Augustine, with Alypius, and Evodius, a Fellow-townsman, converted before Augustine himself, who had joined him at Milan, set out for Africa, with the intention of continuing their common life. Possibly the importunate demands of his Fellow-citizens upon his kindness (see above) made Thagaste itself unsuitable
Apostles - On starting, He called Philip to follow Him, and the instant obedience rendered suggests that Philip had already believed that Jesus was the Messiah, probably through his friends and Fellow-citizens Andrew and Peter. What previous acquaintance existed between Matthew and our Lord, what special qualities commended him we cannot tell; but the instant obedience he rendered to so extraordinary a command, and the feast which he gave in our Lord’s honour as he bade farewell to his Fellow-officials, suggest that they had known one another for some time. But why was Peter the: first called? Must not an explanation of this fact be sought? And is it not to be found in the circumstance that he was the foremost of the Apostles, their leader, their spokesman? Primacy in the sense of jurisdiction or authority over his Fellow Apostles Peter never received and never exercised. The range of their knowledge was that of most of their Fellow-countrymen. His primary aim was to discover men who could be taught and trained to comprehend His character, aims, and labours, who could describe His life to their Fellows, who could inform them as to what He said and as to the deeds of mercy and power which He wrought
Paul as a Controversialist - By all these remarkable, and indeed unparalleled, means, Paul came more and more to be of that unequalled grace of Fellow-feeling with all other men, and that noble temper of accommodation and adaptation to all other men, in which he stands out and unrivalled at the head of all the saints of God. And Origen confesses to having had a certain Fellow-feeling with those heretics
Acts - By searching those letters for references to Paul's Fellow workers, they compiled a list of companions who could have written Luke and Acts. At the same time, however, changes and expansion put a serious strain on the Fellowship as the church tried to seek Christ's will (Acts 6:1 ). God uses Fellow Christians to encourage enchained missionaries (Acts 28:11-16 )
Apostolic Constitutions And Canons - 14, 18: ‘We now assembled, Peter and Andrew, James and John, Philip and Bartholomew, Thomas and Matthew, James the son of Alphaeus, and Lebbaeus who is surnamed Thaddaeus, and Simon the Canaanite, and Matthias who instead of Judas was numbered with us, and James the brother of our Lord and bishop of Jerusalem, and Paul … and have written to you this catholic doctrine [1] we have sent by our Fellow-minister Clement. ’ The collective apostolic authorship is recalled to the reader’s mind from time to time by casual phrases such as ‘we twelve,’ ‘Philip our Fellow-apostle’; while by a curious device, from time to time, without any break in the discourse, one or other of the apostles takes the word out of the common mouth and speaks in his own name, especially at points where the reference is to his personal experience; as ii
Apostle - Paul, in the Epistle to the Romans 16:7 , says, "Salute Andronicus and Junia, my kinsmen and Fellow prisoners, who are of note among the Apostles. Tertullian calls all the seventy disciples Apostles; and Clement calls Barnabas Apostolical merely in another place, and says that he was one of the seventy, and Fellow labourer of Paul
Oaths - It may be taken to mean that it is the presence of evil among our Fellow-men that necessitates oaths, to convince them of the good faith of the speaker. In a court of law we take the oath to convince our Fellow-men, who cannot see our heart and judge of our regard for truth, of our good faith
Spiritual Gifts - Slaves or women, people of no account before, found themselves in possession of mysterious powers, which gave them a position of importance among their Fellow-Christians
Magi - There is reason to believe that the Magi, in the course of a generation or two, made a bid for spiritual power: they conformed to the religion of the conquerors, profoundly altering its character as they did so, and thus gained the opportunity of re-asserting their own sacred functions among their Fellow-countrymen, who were predisposed to accept their re-introduction of the old beliefs under the forms of the new
Work - Christians respect their Fellow believers who endure faithfully for the sake of Christ (Psalms 77:11-15; 1 Thessalonians 5:13; 1 Timothy 4:15-16)
Death - Bates's four last Things; Hopkins, Drelincourt, Sherlock, and Fellowes, on Death; Bp. With all the dignity of a sovereign, he conferred pardon on a penitent Fellow-sufferer: with a greatness of mind beyond example, he spent his last moments in apologies and prayers for those who were shedding his blood
Matthew, Gospel of - ...
Unbelieving Jews often attacked those of their Fellow Jews who were Christians

The author calls himself Peter, an apostle of Jesus Christ (1:1), a Fellow elder, a witness of the sufferings of Christ, and a participant in the eschatological glory (5:1)

Many people in Jesus' day believed that a neighbor was a Fellow Israelite
Lie, Lying - The Mosaic Law, summarized in the Ten Commandments, presents the bearing of false witness as a malicious sin against one's Fellow man (Exodus 20:16 ; Deuteronomy 5:20 ; 19:18-19 ; cf
Caesar, Caesar's Household - By it a citizen could appeal to his Fellow-citizens in assembly against any injustice on the part of a magistrate
Judaizing Christians - One of these tenets, one which, indeed, naturally followed from their conceptions Of the Gospel dispensation, was, that its author was merely a man raised solely by the commission with which he had been honoured above the rest of his Fellow creatures
Stumbling - At all this I was very much astonished; and, toward the end, as much pleased as astonished; which he perceiving, cried out frequently and triumphantly, ‘Behold, Frank, behold!' and at last, drawing in the horses, stopping short, and looking me full in the face, he exclaimed, ‘Frank, what say you now?' For some time I was incapable of making him any answer, but continued surveying him from head to foot as the most extraordinary savage I had ever beheld; while he stroked his whiskers with great self-complacency and composure, and nodded his head every now and then, as much as to say, ‘Look at me! Am I not a very capital Fellow?' We alighted on the brow of a small hill, whence was to be seen a full and uninterrupted prospect of the country all round
Phoebe - ‘Brother’ and ‘sister’ in the NT simply mean ‘fellow-Christian
Joannes (520), Monk And Author - Sophronius and 12 Fellow-disciples sailed with the body to Palestine, but, hearing at Ascalon that Sinai was beset by Arabs, took it up to Jerusalem (in the beginning of the eighth indiction, e
Perfection (Human) - He asks man to love Him with undivided loyalty and affection, and to prove his love to God in the service of his Fellow-man
Petrus, Saint, Archbaptist of Alexandria - (11) Persons who in their zeal to encourage their Fellow-Christians to win the prize of martyrdom voluntarily avowed their own faith were to be exempted from blame; cf
Peter (2) - His Fellow-believers give him the same name when they relate that our Lord appeared to him after His resurrection (Luke 24:34). The acquaintanceship thus formed passed after an interval of a few months, during part of which Peter was with Jesus, into discipleship and permanent Fellowship. Accepting this declaration without a shadow of doubt, lie ventures to inquire as to the fate of his Fellow-disciple John, but is forbidden to meddle with such questions, his task being to concentrate his energies on the fulfilment of the duties imposed on himself
Alexander, of Alexandria - He had hitherto written only to individual bishops, but he now drew up (perhaps with the help of his secretary and "archdeacon," Athanasius) his famous encyclic to all his Fellow-ministers, i
Leper - It was less a trial to the leper than intercourse with his Fellow men, who loathed his presence, would have been. The minister of God was publicly to witness to the leper's cure by performing certain prescribed rites and so admitting him to communion again with his Fellows (Leviticus 14:9-20)
Fellowship - To appreciate the full meaning of the word-group in the New Testament that conveys the nature and reality of Christian Fellowship (i. ...
First, the fact and experience of Christian Fellowship only exists because God the Father through Jesus Christ, the Son, and by/in the Spirit has established in grace a relation (a "new covenant") with humankind. This relatedness, relationship, and communion is Fellowship. On the basis of this relation there is Fellowship for Christians both with God and with each other. ...
In the second place, it is probably best not to use the word "community" as a synonym for "fellowship. Thus the Fellowship and sharing are religious or specifically Christian only if the context requires this meaning. For example, in Acts 2:42 we encounter the word Koinonia [1] and read that the new converts continued in "the apostles' teaching and to the Fellowship . "...
However, it is especially, but not solely, in the writings of the apostle Paul that the theological dimension of koinonia, [14] "fellowship/sharing/participation" is developed and clearly presented. Perhaps the clearest theological use of koinonia [1] is in 1 John 1:3-6 , where we read that when we walk in the light truly our Fellowship is with the Father and with his Son, Jesus Christ and that this relation of grace has profound implications for daily living. For if we say that we have Fellowship with God and walk in darkness, we lie! Here the basic meaning of "fellowship" is a real and practical sharing in eternal life with the Father and the Son. ...
In Paul's letters we find that the apostle emphasizes the faithfulness of the call of God the Father in the gospel "into Fellowship with his Son Jesus Christ our Lord" (1 Corinthians 1:9 ). So the Fellowship is based on the great saving Acts of God the Father through his Son. The character of this Fellowship is made clear in the celebration of the Lord's Supper, the Holy Communion, where there is intimate Fellowship or communion with Jesus Christ, the exalted Lord, and with those who are "in Christ, " for those who faithfully participate (1 Corinthians 10:16-17 ). ...
Fellowship with Jesus Christ also entails Fellowship in his sufferings (Philippians 3:10 ; cf. ...
Paul also points to a Fellowship in the Spirit (2 Corinthians 13:14 ; Philippians 2:1 ), a dynamic experience that is inextricably related to receiving the love of the Father and the grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, the Son. Therefore, the richness of the experience of Fellowship in the Holy Spirit is because of the reality of the new creation and of being "in Christ. "...
Christian Fellowship is also a practical reality. Such Fellowship is a practical "fellowship of the mystery" (Ephesians 3:9 ), a mystery now revealed that Jews and Gentiles are one body in Christ Jesus through the gospel. ...
Apart from its general use as a companion and Fellow worker (e
Isaiah - Amos was a native of Judah, but prophesied in and to Israel; and thus Isaiah is the earliest of these four prophets who addressed himself primarily to Judah, and even he in his earlier years, like his Fellow-countryman Amos, prophesied also against Israel (see Isaiah 9:7 to Isaiah 10:4 ; Isaiah 5:26-30 ; Isaiah 17:1-11 )
Heathen - John approves-they are the more dependent on the φιλοξενία of the few Fellow-Christians who come in their way (cf. Galatians 2:12) and then withdrawing from table-fellowship with them
Ephesians, Epistle to the - Jew and Gentile believers had access by one Spirit to the Father, while the latter were now Fellow-citizens of the saints, and were of the household of God, being part of the holy temple He was building
Aquila And Priscilla - His description of them as ‘my Fellow-workers in Christ Jesus, who for my life laid down their own necks; unto whom not only I give thanks but also all the churches of the Gentiles’ (1618397940_7), sets them side by side with the Apostle
Barnabas - After a year of service there, the two Fellow-labourers were dispatched to Jerusalem with alms for the needy Christians of Judaea (Acts 11:22-30)
Feeding the Multitudes - The power was His, and He used it for the good of His Fellow-men in whatever way was needful for their immediate welfare, and for setting an example of helpfulness in the everyday affairs of life to His disciples in all the centuries to follow
Poetry - It furnishes to us also divinely sanctioned language to express prayer and thanksgiving to God and communion with our Fellow saints
Callistus, Pope - His master intrusted to his charge a bank in the Piscina Publica, where Callistus induced his Fellow-Christians to deposit their savings upon the security of the name of Carpophorus
Anathema - Paul has just expressed (Romans 8:39) his belief that nothing conceivable could separate him from the love of God; and now, in his yearning over his Fellow-countrymen, he announces that for their sakes he would be willing, if it were possible, to be even hopelessly separated from Christ
Dead Sea - My Fellow traveller was agreeably surprised to find that he could swim here, having never learned
Phylacteries, Frontlets - ...
The case for the forehead, which was termed the ‘head-tephillah,’ was distinguished from the ‘arm-’ or ‘hand-tephillah’ by its being shaped so as to give four small but distinct compartments, while its Fellow consisted of a single compartment
Rome, - Paul were Fellow prisoners here for nine months
Petrus ii., Archbaptist of Alexandria - Basil answers in effect: "As to the first point, I did not care to trouble you, and I trust it will come right by our winning over the Marcellians; as to the second, I am sorry that Dorotheus annoyed you, but you who have suffered under Arians ought to feel for Meletius as a Fellow-sufferer, and I can assure you that he is quite orthodox
Theodoricus, the Ostrogoth - Apollinare Nuovo, the church he built for his Arlan Fellow-worshippers, of which they retained possession till the time of bp
Old Testament (ii. Christ as Student And Interpreter of). - These constituted the main part of the literature of His Fellow-countrymen, and by all of them were regarded with a reverence second to nothing else. Whether He returned at all, or frequently, during His youth and early manhood, to the Holy City, we have no means of ascertaining; but in Nazareth He would seem to have been a constant attender at the synagogue services, for such is noted in the Gospels as being His practice; and when He returned to the town, after His public ministry had begun, it was not His presence in the synagogue that surprised His Fellow-townsmen, but the learning of one whom they had previously regarded as an ordinary comrade. So far as the available evidence is concerned, it would seem, as we might expect, that the writings which were most familiar to Him were those in which the spirit of the prophets reached its highest level, and on which His countrymen and Fellow-religionists had most perfectly matured their own spiritual life—such books as Isaiah, the Psalms, and that most spiritual setting forth of the Law, the Book of Deuteronomy
Gentiles - Further, the announcement of His design of blessing all the families of the earth through that family which He chose to be the special depositary of His revealed will, was virtually His calling Abraham and his descendants to be Fellow-workers with Himself in bringing all nations to love and obey Him. He abstained from needlessly offending His Fellow-countrymen, to whom it was His first object to commend the gospel
Jeremiah - The depth, the purity, the beauty, the absolute heavenliness of his doctrine were the reward and the joy of his heart, let his Fellow-citizens and his Fellow-prophets and priests do to him what they pleased
Paul - Later, he was accused of being a pestilent Fellow. Paul never advised a person of faith to live alone but rather to Fellowship with the church. (b) It witnesses to God's power to reconcile humankind to Himself by its example of Christian Fellowship within its walls and by evangelistic outreach beyond itself (Ephesians 3:10 ). In an extended discussion about Christian conduct (1 Corinthians 8:1-11:1 ) he emphasized that a believer will be sensitive to the effect his conduct will have on a Fellow believer (1 Corinthians 8:9-12 )
Jesus Christ - Because his oneness with humankind was complete, he was able to die for his Fellow human beings and so free them from the evil results of sin (Romans 8:3; 2 Corinthians 5:21; Hebrews 2:14-15). Only because of the divine oneness between Father and Son can Jesus bring God to the people of the world, and only because of the human oneness between Jesus and his Fellow humans can he bring people back to God (John 14:6-10; 1 Timothy 2:4-6). ...
Certain areas of Jesus’ knowledge, therefore, may have been deliberately kept below the level of his human consciousness so that he could have no unnatural advantage over his Fellows
Prayer - ...
Concerning the church, Christians should pray that they and their Fellow believers might know God and his purposes better, be strengthened by God’s power, have unity among themselves, grow in love, develop wisdom, exercise right judgment, endure hardship with joy, and bring glory to God by lives of fruitfulness and uprightness (John 17:20-23; Ephesians 1:16-23; Ephesians 3:14-19; Ephesians 6:18; Philippians 1:9-11; Colossians 1:9-11; Colossians 4:12)
Typology - Paul spoke of himself and his Fellow workers as examples or patterns
Reproach (2) - In the second passage (Hebrews 13:13), the Jewish-Christian readers are exhorted to a Fellowship with the sufferings of Christ, in the words, ‘Let us go forth therefore unto him without the camp, bearing his reproach. ’ The allusion apparently is to the sin-offering on the Day of Atonement without the camp of Israel, and to the suffering of Jesus without the city gate; and the meaning is that those Jewish-Christians must forsake the sphere of the OT religion, break off the old ties of national Fellowship, and face all the pain and contumely that this would involve, so that they might share in the better blessings of the great Sin-offering. And when the author of Hebrews speaks of the ‘reproach of Christ’—telling of the manner in which it was esteemed by Moses, and urging his Fellow-believers of the Jewish race to go forth without the camp with that reproach upon them—it may be that he also is recalling how Jesus taught His disciples to rejoice in reproach because their reward in heaven was great (Matthew 5:12, Luke 6:23)
Grace - ]'>[3] ( Genesis 6:8 ) or of one’s Fellow-men ( Genesis 39:4 ), and whether the finder bring good ( Romans 4:2-8 ) or ill ( Genesis 19:19 ) desert to the quest
Ahab - The names of him and Zedekiah, his Fellow deceiver, were doomed to be a byword for a curse
Mark - ), it is as the ‘fellow-labourer’ of Paul, who had by this time become completely reconciled to him, and had found him a comfort (παρηγορία, Colossians 4:11) in his imprisonment
Agriculture - Accumulation of debt was obviated by prohibiting interest on principal lent to Fellow citizens (Leviticus 25:8-16; Leviticus 25:28-87)
Apollos - Deane, Friends and Fellow-Labourers of St
Evil - Suffering is a means of entering into closer Fellowship with Christ (Philippians 3:10). The apostolic attitude towards the problem of evil cannot be described as optimism, for the reality of sin and pain is too seriously and sympathetically recognized, nor as pessimism, for the possibility of redemption is too confidently and persuasively urged, but it may be spoken of as meliorism, for it has the faith which claims a present salvation for every believer, and the hope of a final fulfilment of God’s purpose of grace, and both are linked with a love that sees in human need and pain an opportunity for service and sacrifice, in which man can regard himself as a Fellow-worker with God in the solution of the problem of evil
Leprosy - Doubtless the lepers drifting about the land had intractable skin diseases, and as they were shut out from the temple, the synagogues, certainly in all the towns, and to a large extent from the social life of their Fellow-beings, their lot was truly pitiable. Their ‘cleansing’ meant much more than getting rid of a disagreeable and often, doubtless, painful disease, repulsive to all their Fellow-men; it meant restoration to the worship and service of God
Christian Life - -The followers of Christ at the time of His death were distinguished from the majority of their Fellow-Jews by their conviction that Jesus was the Messiah. The Christians lived a happy family life; the members were ‘brethren’; new converts were received into the Fellowship by baptism (Acts 2:41); the practice of charity produced noble examples of generosity like that of Barnabas (Acts 4:36), and incidentally provoked unworthy ambition, of which the deceit of Ananias and Sapphira (ch. His doctrine of the solidarity of society-a sin against a brother is a sin against Christ (1 Corinthians 8:12)-and of the equality of all men in Christ (Galatians 3:28, Colossians 3:11) prepared the way for the up-lifting of the masses, and identified Christianity with the spirit of brotherhood, even though the references to love of the brethren are more frequent than to love of mankind as a whole (see article Fellowship). shows that the Church at Rome had not lost its stability, nor forgotten the duty of intercession especially for captive Fellow-members
John, the Gospel of - Other sections of the Gospel, such as the calling of the first disciples (John 1:35-51 ) may also reflect the preaching of this group at a time when they were appealing to Fellow Jews
Sin - They have come into a state of conflict with the natural world (Genesis 3:17-19; Matthew 24:39), with their Fellow human beings (Genesis 3:12-13; 1 John 3:12), with their inner selves (Genesis 3:7; Genesis 3:11-13; Romans 7:15; Genesis 3:8-10) and with God (Romans 7:19; Genesis 3:22-24; Romans 3:10-18)
Elder - The pastoral character of this task of oversight is also indicated when Peter writes: "To the elders among you, I appeal as a Fellow elder Be shepherds of God's flock that is under your care, serving as overseers—not because you must, but because you are willing, as God wants you to be; not greedy for money, but eager to serve; not lording it over those entrusted to you, but being examples to the flock
Unbelief - Paul denounced this practice as showing the lack of Christian love, as bringing disgrace upon the whole Christian community, and as implying that there were none within the Christian Fellowship able to settle the petty differences that had arisen. Even the Jews exercised jurisdiction over internal affairs, and reckoned as guilty of impiety any of their number who brought a matter of law before idolatrous judges; much more should Christians shun heathen courts, and seek rather the judgment of their Fellow-Christians, especially when they remembered that to believers was given by God the judgment of the world, and even of the angels in heaven (1 Corinthians 6:1-6)
Worldliness - Paul waxes indignant at those who sued their Fellow-Christians before heathen tribunals (1 Corinthians 6:1 ff. Successful achievement, the possession of external wealth, or still more of personal gifts and qualities which are an object of desire and envy to others, produce a feeling and attitude of arrogant superiority towards one’s Fellows, and of self-idolatry in relation to God
Dead, the - The matter of abiding importance here is the teaching that at death a judgment already takes effect, the portion of the soul in the after life being determined with direct reference to the life lived in the present world, with results that may be in startling contrast to the estimates of a man and his condition formed by his Fellow-men here. , not simply of vague gloom or attenuated being, but of vivid consciousness; for the blessed dead ‘a condition in Fellowship with God, containing in itself the germ of an everlasting heavenly life towards which it tends’ (Wendt, Lehre Jesu, English translation i

Leander (2) - " To Reccared the pope writes: "To our honoured brother and Fellow-bishop Leander we have sent the pallium as a gift from the see of the blessed apostle Peter, which we owe to ancient custom (antiquae consuetudini ), to your deserts, and to his dignity and goodness
Neighbour (2) - And not only towards those who are Fellow-subjects of the Kingdom is love inculcated: it must extend even to those who are our enemies and the enemies of God (Luke 6:37-38); for Christ came to seek and to save the lost, and the Christian must follow in his Master’s steps
Pity - And this fuller presentation of Christ’s feelings for men, he shows, had also been accompanied by a teaching of Christ, both as regards man’s duty to his Fellow and also God’s attitude towards the world, which went far beyond what bad been already recorded in the Synoptic Gospels. The common bond of Fellowship between Christ and the Father and between man and God through the Son was the power of the Divine love (John 17:26)
Basilius, Bishop of Caesarea in Cappadocia - His acquaintance with his Fellow-student and inseparable companion Gregory Nazianzen, previously begun at Caesarea, speedily ripened at Athens into an ardent friendship, which subsisted with hardly any interruption through the greater part of their lives. Athens also afforded Basil the opportunity of familiar intercourse with a Fellow-student whose name was destined to become unhappily famous, the nephew of the emperor Constantius, Julian. Among the first whom he invited was his Fellow-student at Athens, Basil
Gregorius (14) Nazianzenus, Bishop of Sasima And of Constantinople - Thespesius was then the master of greatest renown, and Euzoïus was a Fellow-pupil with Gregory (Hieron. Their Fellow-students, for various reasons, bore various names and surnames. Gregory claims that he had even then discerned his character in his very looks; and that he used to warn their Fellow-students that Rome was cherishing a serpent ( Orat
Suffering - He longs to know ‘the Fellowship of his sufferings’ (Philippians 3:10). The Thessalonians suffered for the Kingdom of God (2 Thessalonians 1:5) at the hands of their Fellow-countrymen, as the churches of Judaea did at the hands of the Jews (1 Thessalonians 2:14)
Reward - " In Romans 14:10 , where Paul is speaking about exercising love for Fellow Christians, be they weak or strong in the faith, he again uses the bema [1] judgment as a motive for doing it, only here he calls it "God's judgment seat
Labour (2) - The Son of Man Himself (ὥσπερ) came not to be served but to serve (διακονῆσαι), yielding up even His life for the sake of His Fellow-men (λύτρον ἀντὶ πολλῶν, Mark 10:45 = Matthew 20:28; cf
Debt, Debtor (2) - ...
The elder brother of the Prodigal (Luke 15:25-32) illustrates the point; representing as he does the Pharisaic type of mind—common in all ages and pronouncedly so in the time of Jesus—which complacently fancies itself well within the Kingdom, but shows by its harsh attitude to Fellow-mortals that it is inwardly not right with God
Arrest - ‘The chamber in which he happened to be lying having no very bright light but being gloomy, it is said that the eyes of Marius appeared to dart a great flame on the soldier, and a loud voice came from the old man: “Darest thou, Fellow, to slay C
Parable - The second group of parables are less theocratic, and more peculiarly represent Christ's sympathy with all men, and their consequent duties toward Him and their Fellow men
Hopkinsians - But as a particle of water is small, in comparison of a generous stream, so the man of humility feels small before the great family of his Fellow creatures
David - Being forced to banish himself into an enemy's country, he was faithful to the prince who protected him: and, at the same time, mindful of the interest of his own nation, he cut off many of those who had harassed and plundered his Fellow subjects
Commerce - Lending at interest to Fellow Israelites was forbidden in Exodus 22:25 and Deuteronomy 23:19
Nationality - ...
As to Jesus Himself, it cannot be denied that He so far shared the patriotic hopes of His Fellow-countrymen as to believe they were to be fulfilled in His own person (Luke 4:21; Luke 7:23; Luke 20:13)
Pride (2) - The types are eternally stigmatized who can thank God they are not as others are, who from the heights of their own complacency can look down on the supposed inferior spirituality of their Fellows (Luke 18:9 ff. Pride is an injury to the bond of brotherhood; it is disloyalty in the Christian household; it is a breach of Fellowship. The selfish despising of our Fellow-creatures is a contradiction of the law of love. ‘The Valley of Humiliation’; Longfellow’s ‘King Robert of Sicily’; Bp

Acts of the Apostles - The two parts overlap each other; yet a clear division occurs at Acts 13:1 , from which point forwards the Pauline journeys are described by one who for a considerable part of them was a Fellow-traveller. From Acts 16:10 onwards, the writer, who never names himself, frequently betrays his presence as a Fellow-traveller by using the pronoun ‘we

Servants attended him, "dogs" Lazarus; these showed more pity and sympathy than his Fellow men
Walk (2) - By the invitation ‘Come!’ Jesus expressed His warm sympathy with Peter in his desire for closer Fellowship with Him, and gave a pledge that He would support him in the enterprise of his faith.

Elijah - The citizens, thus deceived, stone their Fellow-townsman to death
Government - Jehoiada relies on his personal influence and acts in concert with the chiefs of the army ( 2 Kings 11:1-21 ; 2 Kings 12:1-21 ), and even after the Exile Joshua is only the Fellow of Zerubbabel
Sabbath - In his characteristic refusal to allow such things to become a basis for judging Fellow believers, Paul seems, especially if Romans 14:5 refers to Sabbath keeping, a claim not unanimously accepted, to support one's freedom either to observe or not observe the Jewish sabbath, though he evidently continued to observe it for himself ( Acts 17:2 )
the Woman With the Issue of Blood - Sin has no Fellow
Pharisees - Tradition set aside moral duties, as a child's to his parents by" Corban"; a debtor's to his creditors by the Mishna treatise, Avodah Zarah (1:1) which forbade payment to a pagan three days before any pagan festival; a man's duty of humanity to his Fellow man by the Avodah Zarah (2:1) which forbids a Hebrew midwife assisting a pagan mother in childbirth (contrast Leviticus 19:18; Luke 10:27-29)
Diognetus, Epistle to - of a Syriac version of an almost identical discourse ascribed to one "Ambrosius, a chief man of Greece, who became a Christian, and all his Fellow-councillors raised a clamour against him
Abel - And if you would but determine to learn tonight of Cain and Abel; if you would but keep at home and dwell in the presence of your past sin, and in the presence of the Lord; if you would but build your house, and if God would but prepare your table, in the presence of your enemies; now that Christ's atoning blood has taken the place of Abel's accusing blood; now that Christ's peace-speaking blood is every day and every night being sprinkled from heaven upon His and other men's murderers,-you would even yet escape being a fugitive and a vagabond on the earth, and would be made a Fellow-citizen with the saints, and of the household of God
Sin - ...
Further, in his subjective consciousness a man tends to separate himself, both in his merits and in his defects, from his Fellow-men; but in objective reality men are so closely related to one another as to be involved in moral responsibility for one another. Saints as a whole must bear the blame for many of the conditions which make the criminal; and the saint will bear in his heart as a personal sorrow and shame the sins of his Fellow-men. By doing this he makes Fellowship with God, as He has been made known, impossible for himself. On the other hand, God has made provision for the realisation of Fellowship between Himself and man in spite of sin’ (The Epistles of St. Regarding the second declaration, he offers this explanation: ‘True Fellowship with Christ, Who is absolutely sinless, is necessarily inconsistent with sin; and, yet further, the practice of sin excludes the reality of a professed knowledge of Christ’ (ib
Colossians, Epistle to the - Paul’s anxiety in Colossians 4:11 to show how few among his helpers are of Jewish race-‘who alone of the circumcision are my Fellow-workers …’). Epaphras, is given the place of honour as ‘my Fellow-prisoner

the Unprofitable Servant - A ploughman may finish his tale of furrows, and may then give his Fellow-servant a hand in feeding his master's cattle, and may then take another and a willing hand in the work of the house, after which he will sit down to his supper with a sense of satisfaction over his hard day's work
Seventy (2) - They were Fellow-workers with the King, whose cause, even should they suffer tribulation, must prevail
the Penitent Thief - " That benediction of our blessed Lord did more to benumb the agony of body and mind in this thief than all the wine mingled with myrrh the women of Jerusalem had made for him and for his Fellows to drink that morning. And as his hardened companion still reviled our Lord hanging beside him, the now penitent thief looked across and said to his old companion and Fellow-malefactor the words that all the world knows
Stranger, Alien, Foreigner - The Gentile believers addressed in Ephesians had once been ξένοι τῶν διαθηκῶν τῆς ἐπαγγελιας (Ephesians 2:12), but are now συνπολῖται τῶν ἁγίων καὶ οἰκεῖοι τοῦ Θεοῦ (Ephesians 2:19), Fellow-citizens with full rights (cf. Philippians 3:20), and in household Fellowship with the family of God
Animals - " Thus, animals are owed some of the basic obligations we extend to Fellow human beings
Unbelief (2) - ’ If Luke 4:16 refers to a previous visit (which is unlikely), He will seek once more to win His Fellow-townsmen when (Matthew 13:53-54, Mark 6:1-2) He takes His stand in the synagogue at Nazareth
Wealth (2) - In acquiring wealth he will have regard to the rights and claims of his Fellowmen as much as to his own (Matthew 22:39; Matthew 7:12, Mark 12:31, Luke 6:31). Such a one will also relieve the needs of his Fellow-men, either by almsgiving or by personal ministration, or in some other way suggested by circumstances (Matthew 6:2-4; Matthew 19:21; Matthew 25:31-46, Mark 10:21, Luke 6:30; Luke 10:30-37; Luke 12:33
Gospel - The foreign nations, far from becoming her Fellow worshipers, remain Israel's oppressors
Lord's Supper, the - Further, the New Testament sets the context for the institution of the Last Supper by an emphasis on table Fellowship. Further, the feeding miracles of Jesus (Mark 6:31-44 ; 8:1-11 ) point not only to shared Fellowship but also to the future "messianic banquet" (see Isaiah 25:6-12 ). It is also the Fellowship of and in the new covenant, that is, of a relation with the Father through the Son and by the Spirit. To eat at the table of pagan gods is to Fellowship with demons and to make a mockery of the Lord's Supper, for in the Eucharist there is Fellowship with God in Christ and with Fellow believers in the body of Christ. " Paul could mean that to treat the sacramental bread and wine like any other food is sinful; or he could mean that the abuses at the common meal by the Corinthians reveals that they do not appreciate the true nature of the body of Christ (as the communion and Fellowship of believers in Christ). ...
The key theological elements of the Lord's Supper as it was celebrated in the early church are: (1) the proclamation of the death of Jesus through "memorial" and "remembrance" and a sacrifice of praise and thanksgiving; (2) the inauguration of the new covenant in the sacrificial blood of Jesus; (3) the participation and Fellowship in Christ unto the Father, and with one another in Christ; (4) the experiencing the firstfruit of the joy of the eschatological kingdom of God; (5) the presence of the Spirit of the Father to vivify; and (6) the presence of faith, which is faithful and obedient, in the hearts of believers
James - He was surnamed the Just by his Fellow-countrymen, and was greatly respected by all classes in Jerusalem
the Man Who Went Out to Borrow Three Loaves at Midnight - And not the Lord's Prayer only; but that richly-favoured disciple got for himself and for his Fellow-disciples and for us also, what we call the parable of the friend at midnight
the Widow With the Two Mites - I have another Fellow-communicant who calls on me annually with a pound. Tens and twenties of the finest young Fellows in the city; arts, law, medical, and divinity students; young merchants, young bankers, young advocates, young tradesmen,-all tabling the income of their districts, and all received with the applause of the elders sitting around
Family (Jesus) - Such was the impression of His Fellow-townsmen who saw Him in His daily life
Nazarene - " When the band of men and officers from the chief priests came to apprehend Christ in the garden, they enquired after the Lord under the same name, Jesus of Nazareth, (John 18:5) The servant maid in the hall of Pilate spoke of our Lord by the same name; for charging Peter as an accomplice, she said, "And this Fellow also was with Jesus of Galilee
Prophecy Prophet Prophetess - The author of Revelation speaks of the prophets as his Fellow-servants, and of the Church as made up of ‘saints, apostles, and prophets’ (Revelation 18:20), ‘prophets and saints’ Revelation 18:24), and ‘saints and prophets’ (1 Corinthians 16:6); and in such a connexion it is easy to understand how ecstasy might lead to a vivid realization of the circumstances of the Parousia
Nero - Paul appealed (Acts 25:11); it was also among the slaves and freedmen of his household that he found many of his Fellow-Christians in Rome (Philippians 4:22; cf
Mental Characteristics - Even when work pressed upon Him, and He ‘had no leisure so much as to eat’ (Mark 6:31), feeling the harvest waiting to be reaped was far too great for His little band of Fellow-labourers to cope with, He still spent what seems to have been an astonishingly large proportion of His time in seclusion. But He was likest them just where they were least representative of the race from which they sprang, just where they towered above their Fellow-countrymen and were least appreciated by the latter
Forgiveness (2) - ...
Ritschl says: ‘God, in forgiving or pardoning sins, exercises His will in the direction of not permitting the contradiction—expressed in guilt—in which sinners stand to Him to hinder that Fellowship of men with Him which He intends on higher grounds. Rather is it to be understood that the unforgiving man shows essential impenitence, or at best an uneducated conscience in respect of his relations with his Fellows. If the whole community is compelled to act, the utmost penalty inflicted is expulsion from the brotherhood, the only rights then remaining to the excommunicated person being the inalienable ones of a Fellow-man. This involves a full knowledge of circumstances and of the disposition of the inmost heart which no man can possess in relation to his Fellow-man
Miracles - In whatever age the revelation is given, succeeding ages can know it only from testimony; and, if they admit, on the report of their Fellow creatures, that God had inspired any being with the preternatural knowledge of his will, why should they deny that he had enabled the same being to heal the sick, or to cleanse the leprous? How, may it be asked, should the divine Teacher give a more direct and consistent proof of his preternatural commission, than by displaying those signs and wonders which mark the finger of God? That the Apostles could not be deceived, and that they had no temptation to deceive, has been repeatedly demonstrated. They could not deny the fact, but they imputed it to the agency of an infernal spirit: "This Fellow," said they, "doth not cast out devils, but by Beelzebub, the prince of the devils
Persecution - There he deals not with the State, or with his Fellow-citizens, but with God. We should traverse the Semitic world in vain for an attitude like that of Micaiah-ben-Imlah-‘what the Lord saith unto me, that will I speak’ (1 Kings 22:14)-when the king had given peremptory orders that he should fall in with his Fellow-prophets
Ezekiel - His priestly character gave him much weight with his Hebrew Fellow exiles
Repentance - The result of such sorrow in the community is seen in the punishment inficted on the guilty member; and once this has brought repentance to him also, he must be comforted by his Fellow-believers, lest he be overwhelmed by his pain
Widows - In both of these passages widows are brought before us as a needy class who were tended by the charity of their Fellow-believers
Marriage - The dilemma of their proper attitude and response is most real for the persons directly involved and for those closest to them, but the dilemma also exists for the larger circle of friends and Fellow church members
Righteousness - ...
The gift of a right relation with the Father through the Son in the Spirit, which is justification, creates a relationship for believers both with God and Fellow believers that they are to dedicate to righteousness in the sense of obeying Christ (Romans 6:12-14 ; cf
Joel, Theology of - Moreover, at some points in history, Israelites may themselves have been enslaved to Fellow Israelites

Lazarus - Yes: and if you saw a friend of yours in glory, and then saw also that he was to be summoned to lay aside his glory and to return to be a savour of death to so many of your Fellow-citizens, you could not but weep also
Philippi - Paul’s first Philippian audience consisted entirely of women (Acts 16:13); his first convert was a woman of influence, whose familia was baptized with her, and who became his hostess (Acts 16:14-15); and the only element in the Philippian Church which called for reproof in his letter was the variance of two prominent Christian ladies, both of whom he remembered gratefully as his Fellow-workers in the gospel (Philippians 4:2-3)
Nation (2) - Jesus warned His Fellow-countrymen against the leaven of Herod (Mark 8:15); and, in response to a crafty attempt to get rid of Him, described the tetrarch as a fox (Luke 13:32)
Belief (2) - The belief which man came to hold as to the animistic character of all objects whatsoever attained to vividness and certainty when applied to his Fellow-men. In this sphere there was certainty, for was there not the interchange of influence, of feeling and thought, between himself and his Fellows? Mutual help, power of working together, concerted action with friends and against enemies, the need of increased adaptation to the conditions of life, all conspired to raise belief in one’s Fellow-men to a dominant height
Methodists, Protestant - In the month of November that year, the latter being then Fellow of Lincoln College, began to spend some evenings in reading the Greek Testament, with Charles Wesley, student, Mr. Make full proof hereof, and we shall rejoice to receive you as a Fellow-labourer

Sanctification, Sanctify - By that ‘one offering he has perfected for ever them that are sanctified’ He has assured, for all who will accept it, till the world’s end, a full qualification for Fellowship with God ( Hebrews 10:14 ). Paul sees the sinner confronted by the Law of God, guilty and impotent; his Fellow-teacher sees him standing outside the temple of God, defiled and banned. recall-recall the teaching of Hebrews in speaking of ‘the propitiation’ made by our ‘Advocate,’ whose ‘blood cleanses from all sin’ and thus brings the sinner into ‘fellowship with the Father

Money - Jesus provides a different perspective when asked to pay the temple tax, affirming that although he and his disciples are the sons of the divine King and need not pay the tax for God's temple, it should nevertheless still be paid so as not to offend Fellow Jews (Matthew 17:24-27 )
Old Testament in the New Testament, the - They were concerned to communicate with and convince their Fellow Jews, not just to nurture a private faith
Love - Caritas in turn gave rise to the ‘charity’ of the English Bible (Authorized Version ), in most passages used of love towards Fellow-Christians (cf.

Golden Rule - Hillel’s concise reply to a Gentile inquirer who asked to be taught the whole Law while standing on one foot, was, ‘What is hateful to thee, do not unto thy Fellow-man; this is the whole law, the rest is mere commentary’ (Bab
Essenes - For a year they lived under discipline, then they were admitted to the solemn initiatory ablution which separated them from the world, and after other two years they received full privileges of table-fellowship. They bound themselves by a fearful oath to reverence God; to do justice; hurt no man voluntarily or on command; obey the officials; conceal nothing from Fellow-members, and divulge nothing of their affairs even at the risk of death; be honest and humble; communicate doctrines exactly as they had been received; and preserve carefully the sacred books and the names of the angels (ii
Confession - It is no ideal picture which he draws of his own conduct or of the life of his Fellow-Christians
Christian (the Name) - And the need evidently felt for some such designation as ‘Christian’ arose from two causes: (a) from the conspicuous extension of the new movement throughout the country and the city, and (b) more particularly from the predominance of Gentile Christians, who could not be provisionally grouped, like most of their Jewish Fellow-believers, with the community and worship of Judaism
Common Life - We have Him described as a carpenter, as one well known to His Fellow-townsmen, as one but little distinguished from His brothers and sisters (Matthew 13:55 f.

Wealth - But 2:14-17 makes plain that unless rich Christians use their wealth to help their poorer Fellow Christians they cannot claim to have saving faith
Judgments of God - Jortin justly observes, that there is usually much rashness and presumption in pronouncing that the calamities of sinners are particular judgments of God; yet, saith he, if from sacred and profane, from ancient and modern historians, a collection were made of all the cruel persecuting tyrants who delighted in tormenting their Fellow creatures, and who died not the common death of all men, nor were visited after the visitation of all men, but whose plagues were horrible and strange, even a sceptic would be moved at the evidence, and would be apt to suspect that it was the hand of God in it

Passover (ii. in Relation to Lord's Supper). - In any case, in the time of our Lord, the Jewish Passover was an annual covenanting feast at which the nation’s covenant Fellowship with Jehovah was solemnly renewed. —(c) Once more, the Passover was a joyful social meal, the meal of Jewish brotherhood, in which the participants, as members of the Divine covenant, gave expression to their covenant Fellowship with one another as well as with Israel’s God. The Passover was not only a renewal of the covenant Fellowship with God, but a festive social meal at which the links of Jewish brotherhood were forged afresh. And the Lord’s Supper is the occasion of a glad spiritual communion of those who belong to the household of faith, both with Christ Himself—the Elder Brother and the Head—and with their Fellow-members in the one family of God
Plan - Peter and his Fellow-Apostles, on the day of Pentecost and long afterwards, were still unaware that their Master desired them to proclaim His message to the wider Gentile world
Inspiration - They rest the truth of the Holy Spirit's outpouring, Christ's resurrection, and the mystery of the admission of the Gentiles to be Fellow heirs in the gospel, on the Old Testament as infallible (Acts 2:16; Acts 2:25-33; 1 Corinthians 15:3-4; Romans 16:26)
Sacrifice And Offering - ...

Confession (of Christ) - Something is due to the shaping power of speech upon thought, but even more to the definite committal of oneself before one’s Fellows, and the kindling influences which come from the contact of soul with soul. The secret of the influence exerted by such confession lies not only in the appealing grace of the Lord whom we confess, but in the subtle and mysterious power of a believing and confessing heart over its Fellow
Dispersion - Paul and his Fellow-apostles; what further service it may be designed to render, in the form in which it now exists, is yet hidden in the counsels of the Eternal
Angels - They are not inferior deities, but Fellow-servants (σύνδουλοι) with man (Revelation 19:10; Revelation 22:9)
Michal, Saul's Daughter - And who can tell how many husbands here are in David's desolate case? Who can tell how many have to go out of their own homes to find the finest sympathy, and the fullest utterance, and the completest rest for their hearts? The wife see that her husband has not to go abroad to find his best friend, his most sympathetic and Fellow-feeling friend, and, above all, in his religion
Demoniac - "The Pharisees heard it," observes the Evangelist, "and they said, This Fellow doth not cast out devils but by Beelzebub, the prince of the devils
Games - They returned to their own homes in a triumphal chariot, and made their entrance into their native city, not through the gates which admitted the vulgar throng, but through a breach in the walls, which were broken down to give them admission; and at the same time to express the persuasion of their Fellow citizens, that walls are of small use to a city defended by men of such tried courage and ability
Heresy - ]'>[2] Justin Martyr, the Fellow countryman of Simon, has preserved to us some technical expressions of his followers
Philippians, Epistle to - He must have visited Philippi at least three times ( Acts 16:12 , 2 Corinthians 2:13 , Acts 20:6 ), and he always found his own love reciprocated by the Church, and experienced a unique joy in their Fellowship with him for the furtherance of the gospel ( Philippians 1:3-8 ). Paul refreshes his lonely spirit by perfect freedom of Fellowship with his favourite Church. Paul is constantly moved to thanksgiving for their generous Fellowship with him in the furtherance of the gospel from the beginning, and they are all ever on his heart where Christ dwells. An appeal is also made to them, by all that they have experienced of Christian love, to complete his joy by living in Fellowship, and to exhibit that unselfish mind which prompted Christ to come to earth and die for them. Christian perfection is still in the distance, but all who have been laid hold of by Christ must respond by striving eagerly for perfect Fellowship with Him. Possibly ‘yoke-fellow’ ( Philippians 4:3 ) refers to Epaphroditus, or more probably it should be translated ‘Synzygus,’ a proper name. Human thought has made few nobler flights into the mystery of redemption than Philippians 2:6-11 , but it is used to exalt the homely duty of sacrifice in the ministry of Fellowship
Predestination - Paul here reposes such confidence is the sovereignty of a God of grace and faithfulness; and he is confident that He who began a good work in him and his Fellow-believers ‘will perfect it until the day of Jesus Christ’ (Philippians 1:6)
Passover (i.) - Each man representing a Passover group killed his own sacrifice, the nearest priest caught the blood in his bowl, passed it to a Fellow-priest and he again to another, while each as he received the full bowl handed back an empty one
Priscillianus And Priscillianism, Priscillian - He hurried to the palace, though it was night, and agreed to unite with the bishops in church Fellowship. Holding an esoteric and exoteric doctrine they with some other theosophic sects affirmed falsehood allowable for a holy end; absolute veracity only binding between Fellow-members
Dispersion - Paul and his Fellow-apostles; what further service it may be designed to render, in the form in which it now exists, is yet hidden in the counsels of the Eternal
Paul - His Fellow-labourers aided him in his work, carrying the gospel to Colosse and Laodicea and other places which they could reach
Church - That this family is considered capable of an ordered extension is evident ( a ) from the steps immediately taken to fill a vacant post of authority ( Acts 1:25 ), and ( b ) from the way in which converts on receiving baptism are spoken of as added to a Fellowship ( Acts 2:47 AV Ethics - " The code expounded "holiness" in terms of love to God, the Fellow Israelite, and the neighbor, shown in honesty, integrity, and charity
Faith - Paul would express to his Fellow-countrymen in a word what was most precious to himself and them, he speaks not of ‘the faith’ but ‘the hope of Israel’ ( Acts 28:20 etc
Miracle - 16 and special provisions at key moments, most notably water from the rock 17:1-7; Numbers 10:1-13 ) and destruction of those who disobey God and challenge his appointed leaders (most notably the sudden deaths of Nadab and Abihu Leviticus 10:1-7 ; and the earthquake that swallows Korah and his Fellow rebels Numbers 16 )
Leadership - Care had been taken already in Deuteronomy to warn future kings against self-indulgence, against lifting themselves up above their Fellow countrymen
Elect, Election - At the same time, He is no less ready to assert the claims of His Fellow-countrymen to the rights which were theirs as the Divinely chosen people (ἠ σωτηρία ἐκ τῶν Ἰουδαίων ἐστίν, John 4:22; cf
Individual - The Book of Job is wholly occupied with the problem of the individual, even if this individual be supposed to stand for the nation; and no one has ever stated with greater splendour of imagination or intellectual daring his right to fair dealing, not only from his Fellow-men but from his God
Ethics - They bring him into close relation not only with his Fellow-men but with God
Lord's Prayer (i) - or one of his Fellow-workers, is maintained, for instance, by A
Fire - ...
John 15:6 (a) This fire is used by the Lord JESUS to describe the fierce criticism and the repudiation which Fellow-men will give to those who profess to be Christians, but live like sinners
Collection - ...
The relief-fund, the earliest attempt to organize and perpetuate Christian Fellowship, was not only a failure in itself, but must soon have disappeared in these social upheavals. The depth of the Apostle’s sympathy for the sufferings of his Fellow-countrymen may be gauged by the reasons on which he bases his claims on their behalf. Paul justifies us in assuming that he deliberately set himself the task of conciliating the jealousy of the Jewish Christians by establishing a bond of Fellowship and communion between them and the Gentile converts (2 Corinthians 8:4; 2 Corinthians 9:13; cf
Paul as a Man of Prayer - How happy to have been his Fellow-elder in Ephesus, his physician, his son in the Gospel
Angels (2) - ’ On this point the words of the angel are instructive which are recorded in Revelation 22:10 ‘I am a Fellow-servant with thee and with thy brethren the prophets, and with them that keep the words of this book. Hort says, ‘a glimpse of the Fellowship of angels with prophets and evangelists, and implicitly with the suffering Christians to whom St
Jacob - Your son will send home secret instructions to some old class-fellow who is now at the top of the law to effect a peace, if not forgiveness and reconciliation, at any price
Jonath - O thou wicked servant, I forgave thee all that debt, because thou desiredst me: shouldest not thou also have had compassion on thy Fellow-servant, even as I had pity on thee?...
Everybody has the Book of Jonah by heart
Theophilus, Bishop of Alexandria - During the demolition of various temples there were found hollow statues of bronze and wood, set against the walls, but capable of being entered by the priests, who thus carried on their impostures, which Theophilus explained to his pagan Fellow-citizens (Theod
Revelation of John, the - "The Fellow servant of angels and brother of prophets" (Revelation 22:9) is more likely to be the celebrated apostle John than any less known person bearing the name
Unity (2) - Jude (Judges 1:19), who speaks of some as ἀποδιορίζοντες, ‘marking themselves off’ from their Fellows; but apparently only in tone and conduct—there was no interruption of formal Fellowship: the murmurers still ‘feasted’ with the Church, and were present at its ἀγάπαι. His verdict upon schism, as the interruption of such unity, must be inferred—it is nowhere stated* Humility - —We are introduced here to the most powerful among the motives to humility, and to a relation deeper than any that influences us in the society of our Fellow-men. On no other terms is grace given or Fellowship with God possible
Dependence - Nor must we forget that this phenomenon is observable in Jesus’ relation to His Fellow-men
Sacrifice - He could not offer his own forfeited life to divine justice, but in the life of the innocent Fellow creature was found a suitable typical representative
Eli - All that my Fellow-men can see in me is not the envy of my heart, but that of my life
Aaron - The call of Isaiah, and the call of Jeremiah, and the call of Calvin, and the call of Knox, and the call of Bruce all remind us of Moses' noble modesty, his fear of his office, his fear of himself, and of his Fellow-men
Philanthropy - The immoral compromises which we so often make with ourselves become impossible when love unto the uttermost is the rule of our regard for our Fellow-men
Woman - Paul calls Euodia and Syntyche his Fellow workers ( Philippians 4:2-3 ) and frequently praises women as co-laborers in ministry (Romans 16:6,12 )
Revelation, the Book of - He was a “fellow partaker in the tribulation” which is “in Jesus,” who, because of his testimony to Jesus, was exiled to the island of Patmos (Revelation 1:4-70 NAS)
Evil - The stress in the Old Testament lies not on the conceptual, but in the practical outworking of a state of disharmony with God and one's Fellow humans
Trade And Commerce - The valuable fruit of this independence was seen in his power to rebut charges that were levelled at Fellow-apostles, who accepted a lawful material recompense for evangelistic work
Righteous, Righteousness - It will suffice to quote one which shows the unity of the Divine love in its two aspects of mercifulness and sternness—the parable of the king that took account of his servants and punished him who showed no mercy to his Fellow (Matthew 18:23-35)
Union With Christ - Thus, "in Christ" serves as the bond of unity within the Fellowship of believers. Thus, the clue to understanding the concept of Fellowship with Christ is found in the phrase "in the Spirit. Although the corporate meaning of the formula is important, this does not preclude the apostle's emphasis on personal faith-union and Fellowship with Christ. "In Christ" is used in a way that is similar to Paul's understanding of Christians being Fellow members of the body of Christ. Fellowship with Christ is Fellowship with God (Romans 8:11 ; cf
Government - The judge was probably an individual of great prestige among his Fellow-tribesman, and as such would be able to negotiate with the central government on behalf of his people
Jesus Christ, Name And Titles of - " The church is the object of Christ's love and redemption, called to have Fellowship with him and to continue his work on work. Their restraint in predicating full deity of Jesus is due, among other thing, to his humanity (which the good news of the incarnation [8]6; was bound to emphasize ) and to their theological sophistication: Jews imbued with the sacred truth of God's oneness—Deuteronomy 6:4 , "the Lord is one, " rang out daily in worship—were not so callow as to label Fellow humans "God
Sin - If sin is lack of love for God, it is also hate or indifference toward Fellow humans
Galatians Epistle to the - They on their side commended the work he had already done amongst Gentiles, and treated him as a Fellow-apostle (Galatians 2:1-10)
Money (2) - In the parable of the Unmerciful Servant (Matthew 18:23-35) the one servant owes the king 10,000 talents, or nearly two-and-a-half millions of our money—an enormous sum, of which the 100 denarii (= £4) owed him by his Fellow-servant represents but an insignificant fraction (1/6000)
Barnabas, Epistle of - Clement of Alexandria bears witness to it as the work of "Barnabas the apostle"—"Barnabas who was one of the seventy disciples and the Fellow-labourer of Paul"—"Barnabas who also preached the Gospel along with the apostle according to the dispensation of the Gentiles" ( Strom
Absolution - The effectiveness of all such dealing has a natural basis in the fact of experience that a man’s judgment of himself is greatly influenced by the judgment of his Fellow-men. But very early in the history of the Church it became customary for those who, after baptism, had fallen into gross sins, especially the sins of idolatry, adultery, or murder, to be cut off from Fellowship, and to be readmitted after repentance manifested by public confession in the church. What comforts and assures in time of soul-trouble is the word or sign of acknowledgment from the Christian company speaking by those who truly represent it—those who are truly called of God to the ministry, or who are shown by their goodness to be in the Fellowship of God
Prayer - He who believes the Scriptures will, however, be encouraged by the declaration that "the effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man," for his Fellow creatures, "availeth much;" and he who demands something beyond mere authoritative declaration, as he cannot deny that prayer is one of those instruments by which another may be benefited, must acknowledge that, like the giving of counsel, it may be of great utility in some cases, although it should fail in others; and that as no man can tell how much good counsel may influence another, or in many cases say whether it has ultimately failed or not, so it is with prayer
Jeremiah - Indications of affinity or friendship with some of the actors in it occur in the sameness of names: Jeremiah's father bearing the name of Hilkiah, Josiah's high priest; his uncle that of Shallum, Huldah's husband (Jeremiah 32:7; compare 2 Kings 22:14); Ahikam, Jeremiah's protector (Jeremiah 26:24), was also the Fellow worker with Huldah in the revival; moreover Maaseiah, governor of Jerusalem, sent by Josiah as ally of Hilkiah in repairing the temple (2 Chronicles 34:8), was father of Neriah, the father of both Baruch and Seraiah, Jeremiah's disciples (Jeremiah 36:4; Jeremiah 51:59)
Leucius, Author of n.t. Apocryphal Additions - In the Muratorian Fragment the request is urged by the apostle's Fellow-bishops in Asia; he asks them to fast three days, begging for a revelation of God's will, and then it is revealed to Andrew that John is to write
Wisdom - … This plan or organism of principles may be idealized, and regarded as animated and active, and have consciousness attributed to it, … it may become the Fellow of God … it may be described as “playing” before God, in the joyous consciousness of power and capacity, and having its delights with the children of men
Individualism - No man is ever so much wiser and better than his Fellows that he can have the right in any capacity to take over the regulation of their lives, and the very goal of history is to teach the folly and wickedness of any body of men trying to bear rule over others,—a philosophy of history somewhat akin to St. Individualism is as little satisfied as Socialism with twelve millionaires dining at one end of London and finding the cultivated globe too small to please their palates, and at the other a million and a half of their Fellow-creatures not knowing whether they will have any dinner at all
Judas Iscariot (2) - Eight of these passages refer to Judas; in two (John 6:71; John 13:26) his father Simon is called Iscariot; once (John 14:22) his Fellow-Apostle is distinguished from his more famous namesake as ‘not the Iscariot
Honorius, Flavius Augustus, Emperor - Civic banishment and exclusion from society was decreed on bishops and clergy deprived or degraded by their Fellow-clergy for seditious conduct (XVI

But man was without a Fellow creature of his own species; wherefore God said, "It is not good for man to be alone; I will make him a help meet for him
Humility - —We are introduced here to the most powerful among the motives to humility, and to a relation deeper than any that influences us in the society of our Fellow-men. On no other terms is grace given or Fellowship with God possible
Hebrews - It is no small satisfaction to reflect, that those who have denied either the genuineness or the originality of this epistle have always supposed it to have been written or translated by some Fellow labourer or assistant of St
Sacrifice - The popular idea of a union cemented by blood in its physical and literal character was beginning to be challenged in the early monarchy; the higher theology of the age was already excluding the idea of God as a Fellow-guest, and offerings were regarded as worthless without obedience (cf
Galatia - Paul got some of his Fellow-workers (Acts 16:1; Acts 20:4)
Lord's Day - The Jewish Christian who met with his Fellow-Christians on the Lord’s Day still observed the Sabbath of his fathers
Gospels (2) - Paul’s contemporary Fellow-Christians have understood by ‘I received of the Lord’? The answer is supplied by parallel phrases in the Book of the Acts, and by what we learn from that book and other sources as to the ministry of prophets in the Apostolic Church
Matthew, Gospel According to - In relation to their Fellow-men they were to cultivate humility, and to suppress self-assertiveness (Matthew 18:1-14); to exercise forgiveness (Matthew 18:15; Matthew 18:21-35); to be slow to judge their Fellows (Matthew 7:1-5); to do to others what they would have done to themselves (Matthew 7:12)
Terah - And Abram's first baptism of suffering was not so much the leaving of his fatherland; it was much more the death of Terah his father and his Fellow-traveller
Boyhood of Jesus - Possibly Joseph and Mary joined their Fellow-travellers from Galilee, in the belief that the Child, who would know the time and point of departure, was among the younger pilgrims
Jeremiah - Jewish tradition relates that he died at the hands of his incensed Fellow-exiles
Job - ’ Zophar , who is probably the youngest, is very differently estimated, one scholar designating him as a rough noisy Fellow, another regarding him as a philosopher of the agnostic type
Apocalypse - of John]'>[16]7 that he would not be accepted by his Fellow-countrymen as a prophet, as to the necessity of eluding the hostility and even the suspicion of the Syrian authorities
Ascension of Isaiah - Meanwhile Belchira, a brother of the false prophet Zedekiah, son of Chenaanah, accuses Isaiah and his Fellow-prophets to the king, of prophesying evil against Jerusalem, and claiming to have seen God, and calling Jerusalem Sodom, and the princes the people of Gomorrah (2:12-3:10)
Acts of the Apostles (Apocryphal) - -In a correspondence with his Fellow-bishops, Idacius and Creponius, Turribius discusses the literature of the Manichaeans and Priscillianists
Methodists - John Wesley, being then Fellow of Lincoln College, began to spend some evenings in reading the Greek Testament with Charles Wesley, student, and Mr
Abram - The bondwoman and her son being cast out, represented also the expulsion of the unbelieving Jews from the church of God, which was to be composed of true believers of all nations, all of whom, whether Jews or Gentiles, were to become "fellow heirs
Trade And Commerce - The valuable fruit of this independence was seen in his power to rebut charges that were levelled at Fellow-apostles, who accepted a lawful material recompense for evangelistic work
Romans, Epistle to the - It is to secure Fellow-workers that the Apostle explains so fully the gospel which he is eager to proclaim in Spain and in neighbouring provinces. There can no longer be any question of establishing a claim on God by merit, or of superiority over our Fellows. We have no right to judge, and we must not force our practices on our Fellows
Atonement - Although found only once in the NT (Romans 5:11) and there in the Authorized Version alone, this word has become the elect symbol in theological thought to indicate the doctrine in the Apostolic Church which placed the death of Christ in some form of causative connexion with the forgiveness of sins and with the restoration of men to favour and Fellowship with God. This conception, abhorrent to the Jewish mind and a sufficient ground for rejecting the Messianic claims of Jesus, is the assertion of the vicarious principle of the righteous one suffering for the unrighteous many and also the sign of a Divine Fellowship. Paul’s preaching carries us no further towards a knowledge of any reasoned doctrine of atonement than the position reached in the preaching of his Fellow-apostles-that ‘Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures
Revelation (2) - The ‘mystery of Christ,’ as he calls it, that the Gentiles are Fellow-heirs of the gospel—this was ‘made known’ to him ‘by revelation’ (Ephesians 3:3). But for him the sense of ‘realized Fellowship with the unseen’ (cf
Roads And Travel - ]'>[3] ‘love of strangers [4]’) in such passages is intended the entertainment, not of Fellow-citizens, but of strangers from a distance
Josephus - As he describes the period in such minute detail, we naturally ask whether he ever alludes to that powerful movement amongst his Fellow-countrymen; and his mention of the slaying of John the Baptist prompts the question whether he records the Crucifixion of Jesus and the martyrdom of His disciples
John Epistles of - The ethical thesis, ‘Without walking in light, more specially defined as love of the brethren, there can be no Fellowship with God,’ is developed in the sections 1 John 1:5 to 1 John 2:17, 1 John 2:28(?)1 John 3:24, 1 John 4:7-21. -The introduction states the writer’s purpose-to rekindle the true joy of Fellowship in his readers, by recalling the old message of Life, which has been from the beginning, and of late has been manifested in Jesus, the Son of God (1 John 1:1-4). As the light must shine, so it is of His essence to reveal Himself to those whom He has made to share His Fellowship. Fellowship with Light is only possible for those who ‘walk in light. ’ To claim Fellowship, and go on committing deeds of darkness, is to tell a lie. Faith in Jesus as the Christ is the test of Fellowship with God. These lead to Fellowship with Him. Love is the proof of Fellowship with God, for God is Love. And Jewish Christians could expect nothing but the bitterest hostility from their Fellow-countrymen
Socialism - ...
Yet general principles are of more importance than economic theories which must necessarily shift with changing conditions of life; and Socialism, defined as the principle of Fellowship, may safely claim to be an integral part of Christianity, working itself out in one age through feudalism and canon law, in another through representative government and factory legislation, and tending, through the improvement of individual character, to the ideal state. , of the Kingdom explain the nature of the Christian Fellowship, its inclusiveness (e. This is characteristic of the early Fathers also (see below, ‘Patristic Teaching’); the conditions of society were to be accepted, and men were to do their duty in them, although the Christian Fellowship was working out towards a higher ideal (e. Carlyle says, ‘is dominated by the sense of the claims of the brotherhood,’ and the Christian man is bound to use his property to relieve the wants of his Fellow-man. ’ Membership in the Church meant the admission into a Fellowship in which the rich man became poorer and the poor man richer; in which the stranger, the outcast, and the slave were welcomed and loved as brothers. Thomas Aquinas; just as the modern trade unionist finds that the great Christian trade gilds were carrying out his principles of Fellowship even among the peasantry before the modern era began
Freedom of the Will - Obviously this means that he will always act in full recognition of his Fellow-members
Authority in Religion - From it arise all the relations of the creature to the Creator, and to his Fellow-creatures, with the duties and the privileges that inhere in them, or that, in the wisdom of God, are, from time to time and under the particular circumstances, attached to them
Divinity of Christ - If it be the case that His disciples ‘caressed Him in the most familiar manner as a Fellow-human being’ (Crooker, NT Views of Jesus, p. 25), the statement is crudely one-sided, since the familiar Fellowship He vouchsafed, as is very evident, is but the framework of an intimate disillusionment on the part of His followers, and a growing revelation on His part
Eusebius (60), Bishop of Nicomedia - We learn on good authority, that of Arius himself, that they were Fellow-disciples of Lucian of Antioch (ib
Paul - "Away with such a Fellow from the earth," the multitude now shouted; "it is not fit that he should live
New Jerusalem - Paul has a similar thought when speaking of the Ephesians: ‘Ye are Fellow-citizens with the saints, and of the household of God, being built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Christ Jesus himself being the chief corner stone’ (Ephesians 2:19-20)
Montanus - ...
So entirely had the Catholics ceased to regard the Montanists as Christian brethren that, as stated by the Anonymous, when persecution by the common enemy threw confessors from both bodies together, the orthodox persevered till their final martyrdom in refusing to hold intercourse with their Montanist Fellow-sufferers; dreading to hold any friendship with the lying spirit who animated them
Papias - A Gospel so composed made no claim to comparison, as regards the order of the Lord’s sayings (so far as it recorded them), with a Gospel written by one of Peter’s Fellow-disciples on a different principle, that of collecting the weighty utterances of the Lord (τὰ λόγια), disposed in orderly grouping
Prophet - His perfect sinlessness rendered possible uninterrupted Fellowship with God, and guaranteed the perfection of the message He delivered. For not only is there found in Him a man called of God to receive communications from heaven and to give them forth, when received, to his Fellow-men, but in Him we have God revealing Himself directly to His creatures
Incarnation (2) - On the other hand, man is like God, capable of communion with Him, as one person is with another, finding in that Fellowship his true life. This quality is to be sought, and is found, in all the relations in which Jesus stood to His Fellowmen and to God. Nothing less than complete mutual indwelling and perfect mutual joy of Fellowship are unveiled to us in the communings between Jesus and God, to which the narratives reverently admit us. ...
(2) Between Jesus and His Fellow-men the relations are no less perfect. ...
We conclude, then, that Jesus was good, not merely as being one of a class of men upon whom we may pass this verdict without setting them thereby apart from their Fellows, but as standing alone in the completeness of His ethical achievement
Ambrosius of Milan - Ambrose could not bear that his Fellow-believers should be thus humiliated
Athanasius, Archbishop of Alexandria - "There could be no Fellowship," he wrote, "between the Catholic church of Christ and the heresy that was fighting against Him. Gregory, they knew, was an Arian, and therefore acceptable to the Eusebian party: he was a Fellow-countryman of Philagrius
Basilides, Gnostic Sect Founder - According to Epiphanius (62 B, 68 D, 69 A), he had been a Fellow-disciple of Menander with Saturnilus at Antioch in Syria; but this is evidently an arbitrary extension of Irenaeus's remarks on the order of doctrines to personal relations
Christ in Reformation Theology - Luther and his Fellow-Reformers always refused to take this limited way of regarding the Divinity of Christ
Christ in the Early Church - The Son of God existed before all creation, and was God’s Fellow-counsellor in the work of creation (Simil
Christianity - In their view a living religion has hardened into a technical theology, vital union with Christ has passed into submission to the ordinances of a fast deteriorating Church, and the happy Fellowship of believers in a common salvation and the enjoyment of a new life has almost disappeared under the heavy bondage of ceremonial observances and ecclesiastical absolutism. ...
The substitution of the worship of the Virgin Mary as an intercessor with her Divine Son for reverent intercourse with Christ Himself; the offering of the sacrifice of the Mass by an officiating priest for the benefit of the living and the dead, instead of a simple observance of communion with Christ and Fellow-disciples at the Lord’s Table; the obtaining of absolution only after private confession to a priest Divinely appointed to dispense it, in place of free and direct forgiveness granted to the penitent believer in Christ,—changes like these made in a religion are not slight and superficial
Authority of Christ - Parallel considerations apply to the belief in possession which Jesus undoubtedly shared with His Fellow-countrymen, and in fact with His contemporaries generally
Chrysostom, John, Bishop of Constantinople - Two of his Fellow pupils under Libanius, Maximus, afterwards bp
Eusebius of Caesarea - After all allowance for the exaggerations of the Athanasian party, from whom our knowledge is chiefly derived, the proceedings will still remain an undying shame to Eusebius of Nicomedia and his Fellow-intriguers
Jerusalem - Aside, in a corner, the Arab butcher is slaughtering some animal, suspended by the legs from a wall in ruins: from his haggard and ferocious look, and his bloody hands, you would suppose that he had been cutting the throat of a Fellow creature, rather than killing a lamb
Synods - And while they complained that the bishops of the west should disturb the whole church, on account of one or two troublesome Fellows, they accused them of arrogantly attempting to establish a new law for the purpose of empowering themselves to reexamine what had been already determined. " Here neither canon nor Scripture is referred to; while it is left optional with the assembly whether deference was or was not to be paid to Julius, who is simply styled συνεπισκοπος , "a Fellow bishop. 407, so far were they from making any allusion to the doctrine of an appeal to the Roman see; that they distinctly disclaimed the thought of such a prerogative, and only sought the Fellowship of a common arbitration

Tertullianus, Quintus Septimius Florens - A certain soldier refused the donativum of Severus and Caracalla, publicly declined the laurel crown accepted by his Fellow-soldiers, and proclaimed himself a Christian
Mahometanism - However, Mahomet was not wanting to himself; but boldly continued to preach to the public assemblies at the pilgrimage, and gained several proselytes; and among them six of the inhabitants of Yathreb, of the Jewish tribe of Khazraj; who, on their return home, failed not to speak much in recommendation of their new religion, and exhorted their Fellow-citizens to embrace the same
