Only those who remained blameless and free of sin would reach God’s presence. Salvation in the Old Testament is viewed primarily as a means of going to heaven, which calls for obedience of Gods commandments to be worth before Him. Although this is similar to the New Testament, the New Testament mainly emphasizes on deliverance from sin through Jesus Christ, the son of God, who died to redeem his people from sin and its consequences. Salvation in the Old Testament was mainly based on faith in God (Kärkkäinen 63). For instance, God considered Abraham, who was faithful to him, as a man through whom he would raise a great generation that would please and obey Him.

In the New Testament, there is an accomplishment of the realities prefigured in the Old Testament. Those realities are accomplished in Christ, where Christ becomes the Antitypos. We are considering the history of Christian marriage, this means we are meditating upon the mysterious interaction of divine grace and human activity by which the Holy Spirit moves the Church through the centuries towards a complete recapitulation of all things in Christ so beautifully asserted by Paul in the letter to the Ephesians and initially developed by the genius of St. Irenaeus. Therefore, the divine Wedding in the New Testament fulfils the Old Testament typology, taking up the analogy “from minor to major,” and becoming the “Great Mystery” (Eph 5:32) in order
The scripture texts mention Jesus as one who breaks all walls that divide humans under certain categories or label them with captions. In other words, if we are able to see God’s love manifest in the love of Christ, we would be able to understand the love of God too. On the other hand, Burton Z. Cooper states that “God has acted in Christ to redeem us.” This satisfies Jesus’ claim that our faith in Christ will help us be one in Christ as he is one in the Father, as mentioned in John 14:20.

At the time of Pentecost people were Christians but they had not yet received the Holy Spirit so when Pentecost came they were filled with the Holy Spirit, thus this is why it is so significant for the church. What was the Persecution?
“It is impossible to think of any good meal without any good people involved.” In “A Kitchen Allegory,” a short story written by M.F.K Fisher, the main character and also the most concentrated character to the story, Mrs. Quayle, has an excessive obsession with cooking food which ultimately unintentionally creates a void in all of her relationships and separates her from the people in her life that are close to her. Fisher utilizes the communion model, different though from a ‘holy communion,’ by way of tone and imagery, to depict how from time to time, people have pure intentions but those same intentions are exactly what ends up driving others away. A communion is often thought of as a service of Christian worship in which people eat, drink, and share bread and wine while, as a whole, experiencing their common beliefs.
The vision and mission of the Catholic Church is “to be a sign and instrument of communion with God and unity among all people,” (Archdiocese of Sydney). "Having been divinely sent to the nations that she might be the universal sacrament of salvation,” (Catechism of the Church, par. 849). The church works towards this mission by addressing various social justice issues, one of which is discrimination. Discrimination can be defined as the unjust treatment of an individual or a group of people based on their race, gender, ethnicity or skin colour. Some prominent examples of discrimination in our modern world include racism, ethnic and religious intolerance, and currently the national rising issue of refugees and asylum seekers.
