It is evident from this outline that the subject-matter before us is of supreme
importance.  Issues that are beyond our ability to estimate hang upon our due
appreciation of this gospel, and this "good deposit". In our next article we shall hope to
consider the first sub-division of the passage (1: 8-12). Meanwhile, let us ponder the
solemnity of the theme: and especially let us pray for grace that we may never be found
ashamed of the testimony of the Lord, nor of Paul his prisoner.
