    I was having lunch and good conversation with my brother, I used the following verse to casually emphasize something I had just said. This prompted much fruitful discussion and bible study.

    2Co 5:16 Wherefore we henceforth know no man after the flesh: even though we have known Christ after the flesh, yet now we know him so no more.


    To me, I think I understood the verse simply. Since it had such an impact on him and others now, I wanted to get insight from you.

    What does this verse (in context) mean to you and how can it be applied in real life?

    2 Corinthians 5:16 (NCV = new century version):

    From this time on we do not think of
    anyone as the world does. In the past we
    thought of Christ as the world thinks, but we
    no longer think of him in that way.


    When Jesus God saves, He saves the
    mind also, which begins to think of things
    in new (and better) ways. Jesus begins
    to live in us so we thing different,
    different from the world, differnt
    about Jesus. Amen! [​IMG]

    ASV. you used ASV?

    2 Corinthians 5:16:

    Wherefore we henceforth know no man after the
    flesh: even though we have known Christ after
    the flesh, yet now we know [him so] no more.

    Why did i have to search through a half-dozen
    different Bibles when the original poster
    should have had their Bible right in
    front of them and should have told us
    straight up. :eek:

    What i don't understand is why they took
    my BAPTIST SMILEY away :confused:
    You know, the happy face that jumped up
    and put one hand over his head!
    (if two hands over the head, they
    would have been to carismatic to
    be Baptist ;) )
