Message to the 1998 Graduands

Dear Graduands,

It gives me much joy to write this congratulatory greeting to you. The words of the Apostle Paul to young Timothy "to rightfully handle the word of truth" comes to mind (2 Timothy 2:15), a phrase which literally means to cut rightly.
John Calvin connected it with a father dividing out the food at a meal so that each member of the family received the right portion. Beza connected it with the cutting up of sacrificial victims so that each part was correctly apportioned to the altar or to the priest. The Greeks used the phrase in three different connections. They used it for driving a straight road across country, for ploughing of straight furrow across the field, and for the work of a mason in cutting and squaring a stone so that it fits into its correct place. Likewise, we too, as ministers of the Gospel must rightly divide the word of truth. Drive a straight road through the truth and refuse to be lured aside by pleasant but irrelevant bypaths; plough a straight furrow across the field of truth, then take each section of the truth and fit it into its correct position, allowing no path to usurp its place and so knock the whole structure out of balance. May we hear this echoed in our own ministry that ‘this man/woman rightly handles the word of truth’.

Mr. Christopher Sekar
