God’s holiness has not changed, but our status through Christ’s death and resurrection has changed. We have been cleansed through the confession of our faith and repentance of sin (1 John 1:9). What is more, something very significant happened when Jesus was crucified. The Scriptures say that the curtain separating people from the Holy of Holies was torn in two (Mark 15:38). This symbolizes both our direct access to God through our high priest Jesus; and also, the fact that God’s holiness is no longer something to be protected, but a contagious force to transform the world (Ephesians 4:16).
It is the victory of Christ over death, hatred, sin. It lasts seven weeks; within this time the Ascension is celebrated, where Christ returns to the house of the Father, to give an account of his fulfilled mission and to receive from the Father the reward of his fidelity. At Pentecost, the Church comes out and becomes a missionary, carrying the message of Christ throughout the world. The Sanctoral cycle is dedicated to the Virgin and to the saints: each one of the Saints is a masterpiece of the grace of the Holy Spirit. This is what Pope John XXIII said in his address on June 5, 1960.
Pagola suggests that being plunged into the river of Jordan by John the Baptist “felt like a gift of God” and that “God himself was offering purification to Israel. John was only the messenger” (Pagola 83). More importantly, John’s baptism was seen as a “sign of commitment to a radical conversion to God” (Pagola 83). I think that this is a significant section of the Gospel of Mark that is very
The film adaptation of the religious musical Godspell composed Stephen Schwartz and John-Michael Tebleak attempts to revitalize Christianity by expressing the teachings of Christ as expressed in the Gospel of Matthew in contemporary terms. Structured through parables primarily sung but also enacted through puppetry, storytelling, and skits; the main point of the film is to translate complex philosophical ideas into terms easily understood by a modern-day audience. In the Bible, Jesus illustrates his teaching to his disciples through stories of everyday situations. The play/film accomplishes the same task, but because Godspell is set thousands of years later, the details of the stories are once again modernized to the intended audience. The

Chapter 5 JESUS OUR ONLY SAVIOUR Look at whom we worship and to whom we owe our salvation. This is Jesus or Jesus Christ. He is real, alive and now in heaven, acting as our high priest in a similar way to how the line of Aaron acted as high priests for over a thousand years for the Israelites until AD 70 when Judaism proper was overthrown by the Roman General Titus. Its tagline was ‘past its use by date’. Jerusalem was smashed up and rebuilt but not the Temple.
Albans Psalter, foretells that those who are holy shall be preserved forever, and the unjust shall be punished and the seed of the wicked shall perish. The image of Christ passing judgment is incorporated into an illuminated header, and is inserted into the center of the folio surrounded by text on its top half, bottom half, and on the images righthand side. The header is beautifully illuminated with colors of crimson, gold, blue, green, orange, and white. Christ is displayed looking down upon three figures, directing one of the figures with a rod. This rod signifies Christ’s judgment and its use to literally direct one of the men “With the lord the step of man shall be directed”.
In Colossians verse 27, it said” To them God chose to make know how great among the Gentiles are the riches of the glory of this mystery, which is Christ in you, the hope of glory. Other observation that I notice was that Paul wrote to the people of Colossae. In verse 2 of Colossians, it said. To the saints and faithful brothers in Christ at Colossae. The third thing that I noticed was the word “him” was repeated 7 times in
With the passage of time, Apostles perceives the prophecy of Jesus to be correct. Various things that were foretold before the occurrence for present lifetime are turning out to be true. Jesus predicts the answers to Apostles . “In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed. For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality.
For this is how the redemption of creation from the dominion of darkness to the kingdom of God occurs. From the beginning of Jesus’ ministry, he was proclaiming the kingdom of God. An instance is recorded in Luke of Jesus reading an Old Testament Messianic prophecy from Isaiah 61, which explains the nature of Jesus’ mission. Jesus fulfilled this prophecy in two manners: “the verbal proclamation of the good news of God’s kingdom plus the physical manifestation of the kingdom”. (79) Throughout his ministry, he preached the good news, gave sight to the blind, healed leprosy, restored hearing to the deaf, and raised the dead to
