Over ninety times, the apostle Paul speaks of the “flesh.” So what does this key word mean for him. It’s a shrewd and important question for any Bible reader to get clear on. The question comes from a listener named Cheryl. “Pastor John, I’m trying to come up with a clear definition of what Paul means by ‘flesh,’ sarx.

The APOSTLES’ CREED. [It is affirmed by Ambrose "that the twelve Apostles, as skilful artificers assembled together, and made a key by their common advice, that is, the Creed; by which the darkness of the devil is disclosed, that the light of Christ may appear." 11 And the resurrection of the flesh, Amen.
