The Old Testament: The Resurrection Of Jesus

Improved Essays
Introduction The Old Testament announced beforehand the message of the resurrection, and this message is the mercy and the grace of YHWH to save us from our sins. The New Testament was written having the resurrection of Christ as the foundation of its message. The prophecies concerning the last days, which the prophet Joel wrote, would begin to be fulfilled at the resurrection. The resurrection shows Christ’s power over death, allowing us to have a new life, an eternal one, with God in His kingdom. Christ’s accession marks the end of the times beginning, by God pouring his spirit over His people.

Joseph was a member of the council, and probably was a rich man. Nicodemus brought the myrrh and aloes, and together with Joseph bound the body with linen and the mixture of myrrh and aloe, Nicodemus was a member of the Sanhedrin and had received a visit from Jesus to discuss about the kingdom of God. By bounding the body of Christ, Nicodemus and Joseph of Arimathea were fulfilling the prophecy of the prophet Isaiah . Not coincidentally myrrh was also the gift that the Jesus received when He was born, predicting His …show more content…
Jesus spoke to them, delivering what is called “The Great Commission”, saying that they should go preaching about Him, baptizing, and teaching what Jesus had taught them. Jesus also spoke about the end of times and promised that his spirit would be poured over them and the believers. Later Jesus would bless to his disciples, ascend to heaven, and sit at the right hand of the throne.
Conclusion
God perfectly orchestrated his plan to save humanity, since the Eden when he cursed the serpent. The covenant with Abraham, Moses, and David gave hints of Christ path on the earth. The resurrection and accession again shows the beginning of the end, not only because now His people have the Holy Spirit, but because most Christian’s hope is that Christ will come again as He promised to take all believers to heaven. Until Christ’s second coming, all the believers must take the Gospel sanctify themselves and preach it, so that more people may repent and go to

    In Genesis 3:21, God makes the first sacrifice in order to provide a covering for Adam and Eve. From there, God sets in place the sacrificial system, a picture of the ultimate redemption that was soon to come. Later on, God sends His Son Jesus, who is the perfect sacrifice. Because of Jesus’ sacrifice on the cross, sinners have been redeemed from the pits of hell. This ties right in with what I have learned in Dr. Jones’ class.…

    20-21 with this idea that God uses men to bring forth the new creation through reconciliation. He concludes by saying: “Now Then, we are ambassadors for Christ.” An ambassador is a messenger sent to deliver a message from someone in authority. When an ambassador speaks, he does so in the place of the one who sent him. Likewise, we read that Paul was an ambassador “for Christ,” he was sent in the place of Jesus Christ—in the stead of Jesus Christ—but with the knowledge and authority to speak the truth of Jesus Christ to mankind. Jesus sent His apostles out as ambassadors of His kingdom into the nations and kingdoms of the world—pleading and imploring men to be reconciled to God.…

    The Redeemer Symbolism

    Christ becoming the redeemer was started by God’s act of divine love, Christ being put on the cross and dying for our sins, something Benedict in Deus caritas est also argues. O’Collins summarizes, “None of these images for the redemptive process can be properly appreciated if we neglect the divine love revealed and at work in Christ” (Christology, p.300). The images we is referring to are the multiple Biblical stories he lists, each one showing how divine love exists in God through Christ. O’Collins argues that we must not neglect this divine love when understanding salvation. If it can be understood that divine love exists in God then, we can accept that God is acting out of love for mankind when he redeems all of his creations through Christ…

    Richard Horsley wrote a book that he called Bandits, Prophets, and Messiahs. The main point of the kingdom of God in Jesus ' preaching and practice was the freedom and wellbeing of the people. Jesus ' understanding of the "kingdom of God" is similar in a broader perspective to the satisfied hopes that were expressed in the contemporary Jewish apocalyptic literature. Jesus had utter confidence that God was one day going to restore life back to the society, and that this would mean definite judgment for any of those who enslaved the people and revenge for those who faithfully listened to God 's will and believed in him. God was naturally and presently effecting a historical metamorphosis.…

    This is considered to be the greatest act of redemption in the New Testament when God gave His one and only perfect son to die on a cross so that we might one day live with God for eternity. Jesus spent His life on earth revealing Himself as the Savior of the world to both the Jews and the Gentiles. Jesus performed many miracles; healing the sick and diseased, raising the dead to life, casting out of demons, and controlling nature.
