Co-workers (3 John 1:8)

“Thus,

We ought

To support

Such people,

So that we may become

Co-workers

With the truth.”

ἡμεῖς οὖν ὀφείλομεν ὑπολαμβάνειν τοὺς τοιούτους, ἵνα συνεργοὶ γινώμεθα τῇ ἀληθείᾳ.

This author said, “Thus, we ought (ἡμεῖς οὖν ὀφείλομεν) to support (ὑπολαμβάνειν) such people (τοὺς τοιούτους), so that (ἵνα) we may become (γινώμεθα) co-workers (συνεργοὶ) with the truth (τῇ ἀληθείᾳ).”  This author told Gaius that they ought to continue to support these traveling Christian preachers.  This support meant that they would be co-workers in the true evangelization of people.  By giving financial support, they were participating in spreading the good news in the name of Jesus Christ.   Does your financial support help spread the good news about Jesus Christ?
