GOING DEEPER INTO THE GOSPEL OF JESUS CHRIST
GOD: For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved. He who believes in Him is not condemned; but he who does not believe is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.
JESUS CHRIST: In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God. All things were made through Him, and without Him nothing was made that was made …. And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us…and they shall call His name ‘Immanuel,’ which is translated, “God with us”…and Joseph called his name JESUS.
MUST BE BORN-AGAIN:The law (and commandments) was given through Moses, but grace and truth came through Jesus Christ. Jesus said, “Most assuredly, I say to you, unless one is born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God …It is My Father who honors Me, of whom you say that He is your God. Yet you have not known Him…but I know Him and keep His word. Most assuredly, I say to you, before Abraham was, I AM. I and My Father are one.”
SIN SEPARATES US FROM GOD: There is no one righteous, no, not one. There is no one who understands; there is no one who seeks God. There is none who does good, no, not one. We are all like an unclean thing, and all our good deeds are like filthy rags. There is no fear of God… The wages of sin is death; without shedding of blood there is no forgiveness. The gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.
GOD HAS MADE THE WAY OF RECONCILIATION: God has shown us a way to be made right with Him without keeping the requirements of the law, as was promised in the writings of Moses and the prophets long ago. We are made right with God by placing our faith in Jesus Christ. And this is true for everyone who believes, no matter who we are. Yet God, with undeserved kindness, declares that we are righteous.
JESUS THE ONLY WAY: He did this through Christ Jesus when he freed us from the penalty for our sins. For God presented Jesus as the sacrifice for sin. People are made right with God when they believe that Jesus sacrificed his life, shedding his blood.
GOD’S LOVE COMBINED WITH OUR BELIEF: Jesus said, “God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved. He who believes in Him is not condemned; but he who does not believe is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God….For I have come down from heaven, not to do My own will, but the will of Him who sent Me. This is the will of the Father who sent Me… that everyone who sees the Son and believes in Him may have everlasting life; and I will raise him up at the last day….Most assuredly, I say to you, he who believes in Me has everlasting life….I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me. If you had known Me, you would have known My Father also; and from now on you know Him and have seen Him.”
BETRAYAL: Judas, one of the Disciples, betrayed Jesus; the captain and the officers of the Jews arrested Jesus and bound Him; officers who stood by struck Jesus; they led Jesus from Caiaphas to Pilate; Pilate said to them, “You take Him and judge Him according to your law.” So they took Jesus and led Him away.
JESUS VICARIOUS DEATH: He, bearing His cross, went out to a place called the Place of a Skull…where they crucified Him, and two others with Him, one on either side, and Jesus in the center…when they came to Jesus and saw that He was already dead, they did not break His legs…one of the soldiers pierced His side with a spear, and immediately blood and water came out. Nicodemus and Joseph of Arimathea took the body of Jesus…and buried Him in a tomb.
JESUS RESURRECTION: Now Jesus, going up to Jerusalem, took the twelve disciples aside on the road and said to them, “Behold, we are going up to Jerusalem, and the Son of Man will be betrayed to the chief priests and to the scribes; and they will condemn Him to death, “and deliver Him to the Gentiles to mock and to scourge and to crucify. And the third day He will rise again.” Now on the third day Mary Magdalene went to the tomb…saw that the stone had been taken away…and saw Jesus standing there…Jesus said to her, “Woman, why are you weeping? Whom are you seeking?”…and then said to her, “Do not cling to Me, for I have not yet ascended to My Father; but go to My brethren and say to them, ‘I am ascending to My Father and your Father,and to My God and your God.'”
JESUS COMING AGAIN: For the Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of an archangel, and with the trumpet of God. And the dead in Christ will rise first. Then we who are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And thus we shall always be with the Lord. (1 Thessalonians 4:16-17)
Jesus, born of a virgin, lived sinless, crucified, died, buried in a tomb, and risen from the dead. HE IS RISEN INDEED!
