החיים למען האומות

Image
לאחר תחייתו הכריז ישוע: כל הסמכות בשמים ובארץ ניתנת לי, לכן, לך והטיף לכל העמים! אז הוא שלח את תלמידיו להודיע על ישועתו לקצות הארץ. עידן הישועה החל עם מותו ותחייתו, ויש ליידע את כל האנשים. בן האלוהים השיג ישועה לעמו!

Aperfeiçoando a nossa Salvação

Image
Paulo instruiu os Filipenses sobre como Jesus completaria sua fé. A ressurreição corporal deve ter lugar para a consumação deste processo e a conclusão da nossa salvação. Isto acontecerá quando Jesus aparecer “ nas nuvens do céu .” Deus continuará a realizar o que começou com a nossa conversão até “ o dia de Cristo .”

Kings and Nations

Image
The foundation of redemption in the Bible is the covenant God made with Abraham. It included the promise that “ all the Nations of the Earth would be blessed ” in the Patriarch, and that he would have innumerable descendants. His offspring would include “ Kings ” and “ Nations .”

Forgiving Sins

Image
The literary unit in chapters 1 and 2 of the Gospel of Mark includes five stories highlighting the authority of Jesus as the “ Son of Man .” It also shows the growing conflicts between him and the religious authorities based in the Jerusalem Temple, especially over issues of ritual purity and Sabbath regulations. There are parallels between the present story and the preceding one about cleansing the leper.

Mercy, not Sacrifice

Image
When Jesus pronounced the paralytic’s sins “ forgiven ,” he offended the Scribes and Pharisees, the allies of the Temple authorities. He alienated them even further by reaching out to “ sinners ” considered especially unacceptable by more scrupulously religious Jews. Seeing Jesus eating with “ tax collectors ” and other “ sinners ,” they insinuated that he also must be a notorious sinner.

O Fim da Morte

Image
Alguns membros da congregação de Corinto negaram a futura ressurreição dos justos. Paulo respondeu enfatizando a necessidade de nossa ressurreição e apelando para a morte e ressurreição passadas de Jesus. A sua ressurreição foi e continua a ser o precedente e a garantia da nossa futura ressurreição. Seremos ressuscitados fisicamente quando ele “ chegar ”, e sua aparição significará o fim da própria morte.
