"I also count all things loss for the excellence of the knowledge of Christ Jesus..."
Text: Philippians 3:8
THE KNOWLEDGE OF CHRIST
The apostle Paul trained under Gamaliel, one of the more esteemed scholars in Jerusalem. Thus he cultivated a deep love for knowledge as a scholar in his own right. Many things drew Paul to the Lord Jesus Christ. One of them was knowledge of the Person of the Lord Jesus.
“Yet indeed I also count all things loss for the excellence
of the knowledge of Christ Jesus my Lord, for whom I
have suffered the loss of all things, and count them as
rubbish, that I may gain Christ.”
