<145> Thesis: The "hope" is best maintained by fellowship with like-minded brethren and by remembering what "grace" really means. Introduction: We have come in our studies to Paul's parting words. In a sense, this marks the finish of his focus upon the "soul" of believers and its need for "hope". There is another letter that was occasioned by the attempted corruption of that "hope", but this letter, at least, presents both "The Hope" and the way that it is kept in its place of primacy for the soul. In these final words, there are two major issues: the first is the place of "brethren" in the maintenance of the hope; the second is the place of "grace" is that maintenance.
