Jared also emphasized the spiritual significance of the number 7, suggesting it indicates completeness and fittingness for the entire church. He further discussed the Trinitarian doxology involving the Father, the Spirit, and Jesus Christ as the faithful witness, the ruler over the kings of the earth, and the one who loved them and washed them of their sins.

He also briefly mentioned the island of Patmos, where the book of Revelation is believed to have been written.


Lord's Day, Eucharist, and Symbolism Discussion Jared led a discussion on the concept of the Lord's Day in early Christian worship. He explained that the Lord's Day, referenced in the book of Revelation, is the earliest known term for Sunday and is associated with celebrating the resurrection and the eucharist.
