Why does Paul separate these two lists in verses 3 and 4? Are they meant to be distinct lists? What distinguishes them? What is the dio from verse 14 an inference from? What is this a quote from? Isaiah 51:17; 52:1; 60:1; Malachi 4:2 - Isaiah 26:19 - Jonah - "Awake, o sleeper" From verse 4, why thanksgiving here? How does Paul talk about thanksgiving elsewhere? Is it the preeminent of actions in the Christian life? How do the "know" verbs in verse 5 work? What kind of construction is this? What is the direct object of the participle? iste in 5b - imperative or indicative? How does the light metaphor work with exposing sin? We are now the light. We are to expose sin. Sin that is exposed to the light is revealed. How does this apply to unexposed sin? Verses on "light" - John 3. 1 John 1. What does it mean for us to be light (v.8) and anything to be exposed is light (14)? Who is the sleeper (v.14)? O'Brien - unbelievers. Hoehner - believers. Who is the idolater? What does it say about idolatry? Why does Paul set the greedy one apart as the idolater (if he is, in fact, setting him apart)? What is the tauta in verse 6 referring to? How should the arc reflect that? How is Paul motivating sexual purity and right speech? This is not how Christians are talking today (because it would seem like you could lose your faith). How do you pastor someone who has fallen into these things? Justification by faith?
