Benediction

Have you ever wondered why Jesus never used a benediction? The reasons are: Jesus was from the beginning of Creation and will never die; He is always with you with the Father, and will never leave nor forsake you. The apostle Paul being a human was mortal and would need to leave a benediction to those he wrote or visited too. 14. The grace, etc. The most complete benediction of the Pauline epistles. In most of the epistles the introductory benedictions are confined to grace and peace. In the pastoral epistles mercy is added. In the closing benedictions uniformly grace. Marvin Richardson Vincent, Word Studies in the New Testament (Bellingham, WA: Logos Research Systems, Inc., 2002). 2 Co 13:14.
