Resurrection Hope

Image
The biblical faith is forward-looking and foundational to our salvation is the resurrection of the dead. That event will coincide with the arrival or ‘ Parousia ’ of Jesus. It is based on the past resurrection of Jesus, and our salvation will remain incomplete until he raises the dead, transforms those believers who remain alive, and “ gathers ” ALL his saints to himself (“ He will send his angels, and they will assemble his elect from the uttermost part of the earth to the uttermost part of heaven ”).

Serviteur ou César?

Image
Satan a tenté Jésus en lui offrant le pouvoir politique sur “ tous les royaumes du monde ", une offre qu'il a catégoriquement refusée. Au lieu de la puissance et de la grandeur, il s'est soumis à la voie du " Serviteur souffrant " qui conduisait inévitablement à la mort sur la croix romaine. Le détail le plus surprenant de cette rencontre est que Jésus n'a pas contesté la prétention du Diable d'avoir juridiction sur les systèmes politiques du monde.

The Messiah Arrives

Image
The Gospel of Mark opens with a declaration based on passages in the Hebrew Bible, providing the scriptural basis for the ministry of John the Baptist. It sets the stage for the Messianic mission of Jesus and his proclamation of the Kingdom of God. Thus, Mark’s account begins on a note of fulfillment. The Man from Nazareth is the Messiah and Savior promised by the God of Israel in the Scriptures.

Man of the Spirit

Image
When an angel informed Joseph that the child carried by Mary was “ conceived of the Holy Spirit ,” it indicated that something more than just a miraculous birth was about to unfold. From the beginning, the activity of the Spirit dominated the life of Jesus of Nazareth. He was “ Jesus, the one called Christ ,” that is, the “ Anointed One ,” the long-awaited Messiah of Israel.

The Suffering Servant

Image
Jesus of Nazareth fulfilled the role of the ‘ Suffering Servant ’ described in the Book of Isaiah . Unlike Adam, he did not attempt to grasp the “ likeness of God .” Instead, he humbled himself and submitted to a shameful death on the Roman cross. For this reason, God highly exalted him and made him “ Lord ” over all things. His exaltation did not precede his death – His enthronement followed it, and he died utterly alone.

Le Verbe Fait Chair

Image
Le Prologue de l'Évangile de Jean présente des thèmes clés qui sont développés dans le Livre. De manière plus critique, Jésus est le Logos , “ le Verbe fait chair ” en qui la Vie et la Lumière sont révélées aux hommes et aux femmes pénitents. Il est le véritable “ Tabernacle ” où réside la “ Gloire ” de Dieu, pas la tente dans le désert ou la construction du Temple à Jérusalem. Jean utilise des images de l'histoire d'Israël pour illustrer ce que Dieu nous fournit maintenant dans “ Son Fils unique né .”
