Here is a trustworthy saying that deserves full acceptance:  Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners.


Why do you think that Paul goes out of his way to say that these particular words in this verse are “trustworthy”?  What does that mean?  How are we to interpret it?  Are these words any more trustworthy than any of the rest of Scripture?

Paul says that these words are “deserving of full acceptance”.  What does that mean?  What does it look like to “fully accept” these words about Jesus?

According to Paul, why did Jesus come into the world?  Compare and contrast this with other places where we read about why Jesus came.  (Luke 19:10, John 6:38-40)

How might this verse inform how we celebrate Christmas?
