Le Fils d'Abraham

Image
L'introduction de Matthieu déclare que Jésus est le “ Fils d'Abraham .” Il est l'héritier des promesses d'alliance faites par Dieu au Patriarche, la vraie “ Semence d'Abraham .” Son identification en tant que descendant du Patriarche met en évidence le thème de l'accomplissement qui domine l'Évangile de Matthieu . En cet homme, toutes les promesses de Dieu trouvent leur “ Oui, et amen .”

Seed of Abraham

Image
As the Gospel of Matthew declares, Jesus is the “ son of Abraham .” The lowly man from Nazareth is the Messiah and King of Israel, the promised “ Seed ” of the Patriarch. He brings the covenant promises to fulfillment. He is the covenant heir, and our receipt of the inheritance is based on our faith in him.

The Gospel Message

Image
The Gospel proclaimed by Jesus is not about reforming society or fixing existing governments. His message summons all men and women to repent and join an entirely new social order and political reality, the Kingdom of God , and his message is contrary to the political ideologies of the present world order. We must respond positively to his invitation since the end of the age is approaching when the existing order will disappear from the planet.

Blessing 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 .”

The City Built by Jesus

Image
The Book of Revelation concludes with an image of the immense and glorious city of “ New Jerusalem ” populated by the “ innumerable multitude ” of men and women redeemed from every nation. It represents the fulfillment of the covenant promises to Abraham of descendants, “ land ” and “ blessings to all the nations .” All this has been accomplished by the shed “ blood of the Lamb .” The City of God will be populated!

La Fin de la Mort

Image
Certains membres de la congrégation de Corinthe ont nié la résurrection corporelle des justes. Paul a répondu en soulignant sa nécessité et en faisant appel à la Résurrection passée de Jésus. Sa résurrection était et reste le précédent de celle des croyants. Des disciples fidèles seront ressuscités corporellement d'entre les morts quand il “ arrivera ” à la fin de l'âge, et son apparition mènera à la fin de la mort elle-même.
