This is an essay I wrote up quickly in response to some information about a Bible study lesson I gave.  Rather than submit it as an outline, which wouldn’t, by definition, chart the whole thought pattern that connected the parts together, I wrote it all up as a piece.  I suppose I should still make an outline.  🙂
