The importance of heeding the Divine emphasis in intimated in a number of ways

The importance of heeding the Divine emphasis in intimated in a number of ways. “The verily, verily” with which Christ prefaced some of His weightiest utterances. His use of the interrogative rather than the affirmative in such cases as

What shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul?” (Mark 8:36)

so much more forceful than “It would profit a man nothing if,” etc. In order to call urgent attention to what He has just said, Christ’s “he that hath ears to hear, let him hear” is used again, with a slight variation, in each of His addresses to the seven churches of Revelation 2 and 3. Several notable statements of Paul are prefaced with “This is a faithful saying.” When he explains the significance of Melchizedek he gives point to this principle:

first being by interpretation King of righteousness, and after that also King of Salem, which is, King of peace” (Hebrews 7:2, and cf. James 3:17)
