Ephesians 2:10

This verse actually concludes a passage, beginning with verse 8, that forms the core of Paul's understanding of the message of Jesus. It means, he writes, that we cannot 'earn' salvation; it is a freely given gift according to our faith.

1 Peter 2:4-10

This letter was written from Rome about 65 BCE to Christians in Asia Minor who were being severely persecuted for their faith. This particular passage seems to mix several metaphors in calling the people to stay firm in their faith.

Joshua 23:11-13

Joshua has led the Israelites across the Jordan River to the land they had been promised by Abraham's covenant with the Lord. Now the 12 tribes—who had been together since leaving Egypt—are about to disperse, each to its own share of the land.

John 19:26-27

It is considered a 'given' that "the disciple whom he loved" was John, and a myriad of traditions and legends have grown over the years concerning this directive from the cross.

Ezekiel 13

I am not going to print out the entirety of Chapter 13 in the Book of Ezekiel, as it is quite lengthy. Ezekiel's early prophecies (chapters 1-24) concern the imminent destruction of Jerusalem, which happened in 587 BCE.

Proverbs 3:7-9

I can't relate your question to the passage you cited. I don't see the tree of life mentioned. The tree of life first appears at Genesis 3:22, when Adam and Eve are expelled from the Garden.

James 4:1-3

This is a very succinct description of the challenge of living our mortal lives. We believe our fears and emotions, and thus we believe in lack and limitation.
