Beginning Ignatius’ letter to the Magnesians

This week in the JP2 Group we will be continuing our study of the letters of St. Ignatius of Antioch, an Early Church Father who died in about 107 AD.

Last week we read of his willingness to offer himself in sacrifice, imitating the Lord he loved so much.  This week we move on to the letter he wrote to the Church in Magnesia in which Ignatius exhorts them to be united together in unity and to cling to the grace of the Gospel.

After looking at several different translations, I have, again, created my own abridged version so that we will be able to complete our study of this letter in a single evening.  Here it is:
