2 Timothy 2:7-9 Living Bible (TLB)
7 Think over these three illustrations, and may the Lord help you to understand how they apply to you.
8 Don’t ever forget the wonderful fact that Jesus Christ was a man, born into King David’s family; and that he was God, as shown by the fact that he rose again from the dead. 9 It is because I have preached these great truths that I am in trouble here and have been put in jail like a criminal. But the Word of God is not chained, even though I am.
