Five NT Servant Passages: Colossians 3.22-25; Ephesians 6.5-8; 1 Timothy 6.1-2; Titus 2.9-10; 1 Peter 2.18-20 … and Christ as our example in 1 Peter 2.21-25.
Within the New Testament’s epistolary household codes (haustafeln), these five passages address servants in their relation to their masters. In New Testament cultures, slaves and servants comprised from one-third to one-half of the population, often performing economic roles roughly paralleled by a modern nation’s employees. Most of us would have been slaves. Believers listening to what the Holy Spirit is saying to the churches can learn to “bring Christ to work.”
