INTRODUCTION:

The purpose of this page is to document Scripture references relating to the words slave and servant.  I currently believe these two words are not the same, nor are they interchangeble.

My main points are:

  1. Servanthood is optional
  2. Servants know there Master's business whereas slaves do not.

SCRIPTURE REFERENCES:
