"The bible is unified story that leads to jesus and talking about how that's a paradigm for reading the bible that we really wanna unpack and were unpacking it. Slowly and actually seven different attributes of this paradigm. We've done the first two which is at the bible is both human and divine and the secondly that the bible is unified literature. This third attribute is about how the bible as messianic literature. Big fancy word that you don't use every day unless your bible scholar. Suppose but we're gonna we're gonna get at it and with me is tim and chryssa. Hey guys hello so. Tim you wanna lead us through. What do you mean what do we mean that. The bible is messianic literature. Yes we spent the last few episodes talking about what we mean when we say the bible is unified collection of diverse literature but that is unified and one of the ways that we said. It's unified that we spelled out a little bit in the last two conversations. Plus two podcast episodes was that there's a governing story that unifies the that's being told from beginning to end not always a straightforward linear way. Sometimes the story will pause and double back. Recover parts of it or go back and focus in on certain things but there's a basic governing story. There was even one video that we made. Because the first words of genesis in the beginning and then in the second paragraph of the revelation the narrative ends by saying and they rained forever and ever Referring back to the image of god on page one which is god bless them appointed them to rain. Let them rain a so. There's a governing story and that governing story is what we're referring to this point we're just going to focus in on the unified storyline of the bible. Which is what we're calling messianic. The story is messianic. A story about the messiah. That's what the stories about. There's been a lot of things right but what is it mainly about. What is it mainly abou- yeah here. It just raises the big question of. What does the bible about which will give us really significant guiding lines as to what it's four and what you do with it. The backyard kind of three unhelpful approaches or paradigm reading the bible. It's a theology dictionary and organized as such therefore. I read it as a dictionary. That's one an awful paradigm. Another is immoral handbook. And i read it as such or the or no the spiritual grab bag virtual grabbing devotional grabbing so each of those assumes an approach to the bible based on what it is. And so what we're saying here. Is that what it is is a unified story that you could say about them. Messiah but that itself foreseen ask like what. What does that mean. So that means we'd read it in a different way than we would if it were a moral handbook and it would have a different impact on us. Yeah that's right. It's a simple point that i think massive implications to one of those kinds of things. Okay so before we get into what the messiah is. Well maybe we have to get into it to answer this question. But i'm just curious why you would say it is. The most important part of the stories with the story is all about. You could say. The story is all about god ruling the earth humans You could say stories. Yeah that is messianic. that is messianic. Let's get into it. Here's the definition. Oh yeah we wrote a sentence. It says the story of the bible. And all of its main themes come to their fulfillment and jesus life death and resurrection and the gift of the spirit. And the okay right. Yeah because everyone. Every time we write a theme video we isolate kind of one kind of interesting motif going on in the story of the bible and we trace that every single time it comes to this climax in. Jesus whatever reason jesus is like this. Gravity had every theme just like russia's to him and then threw his life. You see the theme come to some sort of fulfillment and then in his death and resurrection even more so and then through the life of people follow him so what. There's some like gravity to him. Yeah and that's what you mean by messianic. Yeah that's right. That's right so a couple of simple places to turn to come start this conversation. Are you question this way. Why should anybody care about collection of ancient jewish literature. And what does that have to do with anything. That's a great question actually. It's not obvious to anyone why you should care about the hebrew bible. Why should you care about more than you care about egyptian total literature shakespeare. So one one way to think about it is If i am following jesus or i could do. I use the word christian which is a english word. Christ follower spelling a greek word. That is the greek word for messiah. Oh that's right. The word christ is the greek translation of the hebrew word. Which is the word messiah. So even if i'm a christian means i'm a messiah person messiah person and why would i care about hebrew scriptures well They were huge significance and importance to the person i think as the messiah and that is jesus of nazareth. So here's a story about. Jesus us from the end of the gospel of luke. Luke chapter twenty four this one of these stories where jesus appears surprisingly to his followers after he's risen from the dead and freaked out. They think he's a ghost at first and then he's like hey. Do you have any fetched. I'm so hungry right now. Just took it out of me to raise on debt so hungry snack so what he says are the people in the room and he says this luke twenty four forty four. These are the words that i was speaking to you..

"And i think this three part way of organizing things gets us question or comment and then we'll take Take the next step. I how do we know that The worst sea monster is not wail and is the reason i asked. Many people argue that the bible is not true. Because you can't find dinosaurs mentioned in the bible and we know that dinosaur is a is a fairly modern Worried how do we know that the greeks were not referring to a whale. Oh i certainly think it can account for whale. But especially in the hebrew bible the monsters of the deep are given a much broader profiled and just big big fish. Although the hebrew word used in the book of jonah is the word fish fish specifically but what that fish means and signifies in the story will come back to that what i was just drawing attention to is in the greek representation of the fish. Here it's not the word fish it's a word conceives to the huge things of the man. I still have my boys little boys right now and our sunday afternoon. Traditions to watch like ocean documentaries disowned to sea creatures. And so i have to remind myself. I have to think myself into a time period in human history where no one's ben down there with cameras and so like what you know of what's down. There is what you see. Surface the few people who traversed the seas right. What you know is what you see surface or what you see wash up and crazy stuff washes up you know from wales to squids and we're little creatures and then you think well there must be a bigger one of that out there so i want to honor the fact that the biblical author is represent the creatures of the deep from based on their experience of it. You know what. I could see as a gray whale back surfacing but if you've never seen one of those on the shore i you have no idea what the rest of that thing. That's kind the thing i think. The the vocabulary of sea creatures is not as all as specific as the way we conceive of it making absolutely thank. You hit me like a ton of bricks. One day when i was watching a documentary on my gray whales with my kids and i was like. Oh yeah if. I had never seen this thing under the water. Who knows what i would think it is anyway. We'll come back to that first. Forty eight there. Why is all in caps. Oh thank you. This is the new american standard translation. They do readers a favor. When there is a verbatim quotation or near verbatim quotation from the old testament. They put it in all capital letters. Just not translation just in the new american standard. Yep the thing is. They don't always get all of them. They don't always notice all of them. There's a whole bunch that ought to be in caps. That aren't and there you go. I appreciate the sign in the way that jesus playing on. What else going on with joanna. But it's always bothered me in verse. Forty says so the son of man be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth and then you read to the end of the gospel and it's three covers three days but it's only two nights as there's something we're supposed to get from that or we'll talk about that. The three days motif in testing or near death stories in the hebrew bible and the phrases used to refer to. This concept is actually pretty diverse. We can be three days. Three nights can be on the third day. It can be three days but not mentioned the nights. It's a motif used in patterned stories in the hebrew bible and jesus will sometimes say on the third day when he refers to his resurrection. Sometimes we'll say on the third day sometimes and then this time he says this which i think ought to give us a clue that it's about the concept underlying it as opposed to earth rotations on verse forty five. The bible says then he opened their minds to understand the scriptures. You're talking about luke. Chapter twenty four right sounds very mystical. Many people can think that oh by by the art of magic they suddenly understood or is talking about. He walked in through the scriptures and suddenly their their minds open. Yeah man welcome to a two thousand year old question about what did the the biblical authors no when i say biblical i mean the authors of the hebrew bible. What did they know. And how much were they aware of this summary right here that jesus gives there have been some movements that say they didn't know anything. It was all just stories and poetry or they knew some things but they didn't have any concept that the story of jesus how it actually went would be the way that it gets fulfilled so complete surprise and so that the meaning that followers of jesus now look back and sees exceeds the human intended meaning but accesses the divinely intended meaning but one people frame it up there would be another camp that kind of goes to another extreme to say no. It's really important. This whole package deal. The jesus rises is exactly what the old testament authors intended even with if it was fulfilled in ways that might have surprised them they had that basic picture and then there's using between so not just because i like to be in between extremes but because that's just where the evidence points me notice when jesus comes up here and meets the first to notice he called them idiots for not understanding the scriptures but then at the same time there's something that happened when post death and resurrection enables people to see things that in theory they could have seen but now that it has happened. It you can't unsee it now. And i think there's some combination of both there and i find myself a different seasons of my life kind of being in between those two extremes in different ways. I have a hard enough time seeing it even after the resurrection taking me a long time to work. But i also yeah. I'll at least try and make clear as we go through jonah these authors. They no way way more about how the story has to be resolved. And it's not just a matter of them. Like being like nostradamus like they look into a crystal ball. It's biblical authors studied these texts as they were producing them and they were students of their own history. They were looking for how god was speaking to them through their own history and as they studied history they saw patterns and the book of john is like distillation of the whole story in the one little book and the way that the the story has to be resolved you begin you read the gospels new lack for any other way for the story this is of course how it had to go but when the disciples or watching jesus got crucified. That's not what they're thinking they're thinking. Oh this is game over. Which is why jesus has to have this bible study so i'm still wrestling with that question. And since it's been two thousand years of people wrestling with my hunters that i'm not going to figure it out but if you do let me know. Really interested cynthia. So i have a question about this. Three part structure versus the structure that we now technically half our own bibles so you said that. This structure supposed to mimic jesus own reis fall resurrection. And so do you feel like the way that our bibles are structured. Now detracts from that from from our ability to see that. I don't think it detracts from it. I do think the way that jesus read his bible. We will more easily see what he sees.

"Poetry and how these texts communicate. And why are they are What they so. Let me put up a proposal. You have a hand out the part where it's available on online. That's called how to read a text like the hebrew bible. Once you get that in front of you and then what i'm going to invite you to do is actually also a bible at the same time and go with me to luke chapter twenty four. Let's ask a fresh question and ask it for yourself and for anyone that you would ever try to introduce to the bible. Why on earth should you invest time and energy into reading in ancient text from the other side of the world. That's written in hebrew or ancient greek. Do you have any other friends who sit around. Reading egyptian hieroglyphics right. We're translations of ancient babylonian literature. Whatever you know like no no. You don't people who do that congregate and things we call universities and they're nerds and god bless them but it's not like a normal thing. So why should you or anyone else. Dedicate the time and energy into reading these ancient hebrew texts in hebrew or english or whatever translation. You happen to be reading in y and for a follower of jesus. Actually it's a pretty clear answer to that question revolves around the book as it revolves around a person a person that we although so jesus was jewish he grew up embedded in the story of israelite. People there were called. did you. Dan's the jews by his time by their neighbors and when the moment he hits the ground as an adult launching his mission. He is connecting everything that he is doing to a set of texts that his people cherished. It's actually i told you. Go to luke twenty four. Stay there. i'll just show you from earlier. In luke in luke chapter four after jesus is baptized by john. The baptist he goes into the wilderness and he's tested but we're told the first thing he does in public in the gospel of luke these go to his hometown of nazareth. This is luke chapter four verse six and goes on the sabbath day and he stands up to read from the scroll of the prophet isaiah and he reads this long quote from isaiah chapter. Sixty one that it's chapter sixty one big sixty six chapter book and so he just assumes like everyone's tracking everybody knows why i would read from this and what it means and how it all fits in and so he rolls up the scroll when he's done gives it back to the attendant and says today it starts today. It starts the thing that i read and you know all of what that means today. He doesn't even bother to explain what it is like. He doesn't even use his own words to launch his mission with me. So if i am a follower of jesus. And i remember this. Like i didn't grow up reading the bible. And so i start following jesus when i was about to turn twenty years old and started just read the bible. I'd never done it before. And i start on page one. I started with jesus stuff. Because i was really interested in him. And so i'm reading these accounts and it was. I didn't know anything and it was clear to me. Oh this first. Three quarters of my bible. That christians called old testament. It's not just that it's important to jesus. It defines reality for jesus. He sees it as the story that makes sense of who he is and what he's doing and then it was just kind of a. Oh okay i. It should matter to me too. That's why. I should read the first three quarters of this big book even though it's really complicated but apparently the more time invest here the more jesus will become three-dimensional with color and become even more awesome than yard here. So you get to luke. Chapter twenty four begins with the empty tomb and poetic class. Many things explore their empty tomb. Jesus appears to Some of the women that are there and then excuse me empty tim. They don't see him. Sorry and lucas. Just the empty tomb. People don't see him. And jesus gone what's happening verse thirteen at same day. Two of them were going to a village called a mass about seven miles from jerusalem. Talking about everything that happened everything well all storyteller while they were talking and discussing jesus himself alive from the dead came near and went with them. But there is were kept from recognizing him he said to them. Yeah when talking about they stood still looking sad then. One of them named clips answered. Are you the only stranger in jerusalem who doesn't what happened in these days. He asked them Great jesus playing dumb right so what things please tell me. They replied everything. About jesus of nazareth a prophet mighty indeed and word before god and all. The people are chief. Priests and leaders handed him over to be condemned to death crucified him. We hoped he was going to redeem israel so notice that so they believed he was going to redeem israel but redemption doesn't involve getting executed by the romans. And besides all this. It's now the third day since this happened and some women from our group astounded us because they were at the tone this morning and his body is not there so they came back and told us that they had seen a vision of angelic beings. Who said he's not dead but he's alive and then some of us went to the tomb and it was just like the woman said. Nobody saw jesus then jesus said to them. Idiots fools fools. You're so slow of heart to believe everything that i've been telling you and much less for. Forget what i've been telling you. Everything that the scriptures have to say that right there she breathes above the bible and does the new testament exist yet. It does not exist for them. They're talking about the hebrew scriptures. Can you read the scriptures to. Shouldn't you read the hebrew scriptures and walk away with a very clear idea the messiah will suffer and then enter into glory. Old testament one. Oh one then. Beginning with moses and all the prophets moses. it's obviously not the person what's this a reference to two the first five books of hebrew scriptures and then the prophets which. We'll talk about in a moment. He's referring to the scriptures and he interpreted to them all the things about himself he goes on he pretends like yes to keep walking than they have a meal. Amazing story. we don't have time to finish. He appears to a larger group of people and says the same thing. Look down in verse. Forty four he appears to a larger group of disciples. And he says you guys. These are the words that i spoke to you while i was still with you. Everything written about me. In the torah of moses in the profits and that now we get a new addition here the torah the prophets and the psalms had to be fulfilled then opened their mind understand the scriptures. Oh to be a fly on the wall at that bible study right. But here's the basic summary. You read the hebrew scriptures. Torah profit soames. And here's like a bullet list of things you ought to get. The messiah is to suffer is to rise from the dead on the third day repentance and forgiveness of sins announced in his name to all of the nation's beginning in jerusalem right one. Oh one right. According to jesus this is old testament one on one. There's the summary right there and here we are and it's happening you're witnesses..

"Far as the books go get the books or someone says. We'll get the dogs. If you knew that you had dogs than you would understand. Why yes. Those are dogs that i will get. These are the books or someone says You had a gathering in some ways the plates where you do understand that there is that collection of plates or there are some dogs. There's some books whatever that might be so then you talks about the book. He understood that there was also a collection their old testament. Thus we have some information about cannon. Then they'll have sometimes tried to make their own cannon. History is replete with several examples of that you find for example accepting the apocrypha eagles catholic books which we are not going to be able to get to tonight when people except those books they are trying to bring in books which were not part of god's cannon if you have something else being done in there have been multiple examples of this. People have sometimes rejected a bible book. It's been proven to be a bible book a book which was inspired by god. And people said. I don't want that look. We don't have that up here yet. But martin luther remember which he didn't have great appreciation for called a rights. Draw your pistol. It was james. So i don't think we would say that. He rejected that book but certainly is he thought about books that really merited a lot of attention held in high regard. That was not one that that he saw in those waves So accepting a book which did not designed to be accepted rejecting the book when you look at the samaritans. They had their own cannon. They looked at the books of genesis through deuteronomy and they said we believe that these books are from god however and. That's we find that last year they did not believe that everything in genesis deuteronomy was from god. They had what you might call an edited version. I have not personally seen this. But i have found over the years. Preachers have dealt with people sometimes. Who in a bible study for example. They're being asked about a certain passage purchases says well let's turn over to mark chapter sixteen and the person says that is not my bible says well sure it is no. It's not. Well yeah let me show you where it is so they turn over there and then all the sudden you can see some tear marks the person. The person actually tore it out well. They've not rejected the whole book of mark but in that particular case they did reject at least a chapter or they rejected a page from the book of mark. And that's not exactly making your own cannon but that is in the same basic ballpark so it said that people have done that but if a book or they did not like certain bible books they will do that when you look at matthew chapter twenty two verses eight for example we find that the sad jesse's. They did not accept the resurrection so there were some things there in the old testament that they also did not accept now that might be shocking to that they were people who were that will educated people who were influential jews that were not willing to accept everything as far as gods inspired old testament books but as i said before the stuff that we're talking about generally these are not new problems. Jesus in luke chapter twenty four hundred forty four want to have that passage jesus hints at an old testament canon. He indicates and he doesn't give book by book. Whoa but it does give you an indication that the old testament a specific grouping and he points to the fact that in that grouping there were books that god did design for the jews to have books that were inspired anybody there and want to read that for chapter twenty four hundred forty four all right maxine. The words which has found that all be written off. Thank you how many divisions does jesus offer for the old testament he says there is the law and there are the prophets and there are the psalms anything else a threefold division. Now you can go back and try to plug different books into those but jesus does give you a basic division there and that is information Pointing to canton now. It is true that we have more information about the new testament. Canon the old testament. I don't know that that's the problem because the old testament were under that testament and that's that's important. We want to make sure that that is reliable. But our focus is really on the new testament. There were strong incentives to determine canonists city in other words. Says you go back and you look at the first christians all the way up for about the first four hundred years of christianity different circumstances for that four hundred year period costs people to sometimes have some really strong incentives to figure out whether or not a book was from god or a book was not from god and sometimes today just as questions if you'd then a member of the church for very long you've probably been simaba classes whether it was taught by me or someone else. There was a question that came up. And you think oh. I've heard this question brought up before and this question has been discussed before and we didn't have agreement on it the last twenty two times and we're probably not going to have agreement on it today. Anybody ever been in a situation. We'll good league one day you will and when you start looking at the discussions that zimbabwe believing people had there was that discussion. Should we accept this book as canonical or should we not. One of the problems was there. Were some people running around. Who were hero. Ticks when we look at our daytime we got sacks. We have people seeing all kinds of things and sometimes those things are not just wrong. Sometimes those things are very wrong and just like now the megaphone that the people had way back when was in some respects not as loud as what we have today with the internet and other tools that allow people to put some information out in into the public domain quite easily but there were some people who were very very influential and he'll have some people out there now bear in mind. We're talking about people who are here. Dick's people who are expressing some views which are completely contrary to the truth completely. False as far as what's right is some people out there for example. Let's say that they're they're telling people. The book genes is not inspired. When that is false is not going to be a problem. What happens if they say. There's only one account of jesus life if god gave four. Is that a problem now. Somebody has that you and the hold the privately. That may not be such a big deal. But when someone has that view and they began to spread that far and wide and perhaps they began to amass followers. Now what he have. You're trying to convert the unsafe. That's about battle over here but now you're trying to put out the fires that are being promoted by this heretic and by his followers and your problems are just mushrooming so for the hair tech's important to put some of these guys down by saying look there is a canon of scripture. Marsin comes along about one forty four ad so he's about one hundred years little over one hundred years hundred and ten years after the establishment of the church and you can find some information about him online. He's an interesting character. He was someone and there are still people today who express views like he had me when he would say the god of the old testament was not the god of the new testament is was that the god of the old testament was mean. The testament was the nick of the god of the old testament was an angry gone. But when we flip over to the new testament we have in his mind a different guy. We have a god who is nice. We have a god who is loving. We have a god who is peaceful. We have a god who is merciful. We have a god that you want to follow but if you earned an old testament that god was not so much you think there's anybody in the world that believes that today. We still have people now. They might believe that a different reason but this is not a new view. If you were to go back and talk to marching. You'd find that. He believed that only. Paul taught the true gospel. Would you have a problem with it. A.

"The compulsion to drive our day. An hour moment to moment thinking and the decisions that we make it does not it does not inform what i or what i understand or what is important to me. Not nearly to the extent that it did for the earliest of jesus followers. Now let's let's at least allow for ourselves a little bit of grace that is to be expected right. I mean if. Peter actually witnessed the risen. Jesus then we'd expect for his reaction to that and the life following might be a little different from somebody who like we're not i witnesses to that. It doesn't mean that our faith is any less it doesn't mean that our faith is inferior in fact you could make the case from a biblical standpoint. That the faith of those who haven't seen and yet believe is even greater than the faith of those who have seen and believed jesus said that when he talked to thomas right when jesus thomas i won't believe that jesus has risen unless i put my fingers in his hands and his feet and jesus came and he presented himself thomas and he said thomas. You're blessed for seeing this. Blessed are those who have not seen and yet still believe so. I want to look at. What did it look like for. Jesus earliest followers to try to make sense of this thing called the resurrection. If you've been tracking along with us for the last few months now we've been working through the gospel of luke. Luke is this presentation of jesus life as given by luke one of the four gospels this one particular presentation so we've been working our way through and seeing what luke assay about the life the ministry the death and resurrection of jesus stay. We close at final message in luke. Luke chapter twenty four which talks about the resurrection and the glorification of jesus now in we're not gonna read all the verses but in the aftermath of the crucifixion of jesus on the cross something happened okay and the thing that we see coming out from the story is none of jesus is closest friends and followers like none of them were expecting for jesus.

"Two disciples who are on the road to amaze they see a stranger. It's really jesus. But we don't recognize him. And jesus says what's are what are you guys to. And they're like what are you talking about. Do not even know what's going on. And he's like well. What do you mean what's going on today. Explain you about the crucifixion. We're looking this phrase the again and you just kind of paraphrased. It's luke chapter twenty four. I one but we trusted. Notice the past tense. We had hoped that he was the one we trusted. But i guess we were wrong. And i think it's pretty powerful to see that in the very moment they were losing hope. Jesus was walking with them. I think that's a powerful passage that we can share with those who are losing up to say just like they thought it was over. Jesus was with them even in that moment in jesus and how many father are with you. You've been in your difficult times and again. I looked at creating space in sitting with them on saturday or when before the resurrection. It's easy to jump towards the resurrection. Say yeah but look i mean. He overcame don't you feel better now but just like sitting there just like christ could have walked up and said hey guys. I'm here like i'm resurrected. But instead he's like no. I'm going to some questions and they're not gonna realize it's me but will help them sit with the reality of the hopelessness which brings greater redemptive power to the event of the resurrection. Awesome awesome Side note here. I just wanna pivot towards real quick. Is it's difficult at times to deal with the crucifixion. Because it is so gory right like we are not the type of people lineup for the gory movies at the movie theater. Like i wanna look away. I don't wanna consider it like the gas seminary so ambiguous that i can sort of be there like. I don't know what happened. Bleed from every pore i. Let's be there but when we go to calvary it's just hard to be there mentally. You're spiritually so. How would you respond to that. As far as the it's hard to consider these doctrines when they include such gory nature. So that i think this is a really interesting question and my theory is that it's sort of an individual approach. Maybe some of us have a reticence to view those kinds of images and within project that onto everybody else. But i think there are certain there sometimes and maybe for some people were. It's actually very helpful to think about a graphic image of a crucified. Christ just a couple of examples. Elder do bay of the seventy describes what he calls one of the spiritually defining moments of his life. He was ten years old in his native country of zimbabwe at a catholic church. And he's just walking looking at all the paintings christ bird different things and then he looks up..

Who needs to know what Jesus taught? Who needs to know what Jesus did on the Cross? And, think through okay. Luke sat down. He wrote. A, whole letter as a Gospel account a story of Jesus. So what Mike God be calling you to do. For that person in your mind. Who needs to know about Jesus? Maybe maybe this sitting down writing a letter email her may be actually a handwritten letter to them. Maybe it's calling them. Maybe it's taking them to eight socially distanced lunch or something along those lines. Whatever it might be. Let's just pray that God would use our lives as we know, and have seen the truth about Jesus and his word to make it known to people like the awfulness around us God. We praise you.

"Real life superheroes nurses doctors teachers grocery store clerks pharmacists especially supermarkets this mother's day is unlike any other most of us have ever experienced the code nineteen pandemic has put tremendous strain on families and especially on mothers in addition to their day to day career work they've had to come home health providers home school teachers recreation directors mental health counselors not to mention the everyday domestic duties of taking care of a family but during this crisis I've seen so many examples of grace under pressure women on our staff with young children and teenagers others taking care of grandchildren at home members of our congregation who are reaching out to one another I think about families in our church you are fostering children like the lenses and the balance I also think about people at the other end of the spectrum who are not able to have as much direct contact like my own mother who is unfortunately right now separated from her own children and grandchildren and of course when I think about super moms I think about Morgan he's demonstrated super human levels of patience with me and with both and I just thank god for all of the super women who are acting with so much courage and so much energy and so much ingenuity and so much grace under pressure one of the things that I've noticed about the amazing women around us right now is that just when they think that they have nothing left to give just when we think that they can't give anymore they can't do anymore that they can't last any longer they find the more they dig deep and god gives them more energy more insight more wisdom more courage and even more grace and so today on mother's day as we continue our study of the witnesses to the resurrection we're going to turn our attention to a super woman of the Bible one of the first key witnesses of the resurrection her name is Mary Magdalene and Mary Madeline is one of the new testament's greatest super heroes one of the new testament's greatest testimonies to the grace under pressure so if you could please turn with me to the gospel of Luke chapter twenty four beginning in verse one would you read along with me but on the first day of the week at early dawn they went to the tomb taking the spices they had prepared and they found the stone rolled away from the team but when they went in they did not find the body of the lord Jesus while they were perplexed about this behold two men stood by them in dazzling apparel and as they were frightened and bowed their faces to the ground the men said to them why do you seek the living among the dead he is not here but has risen remember how he told you while he was still in Galilee that the son of man must be delivered into the hands of sinful men and be crucified and on the third day rice and they remember these words and returning from the tomb they told all these things to the eleven and to the rest now it was merry Magdeleine and Joanna and Mary the mother of James and the other women with them who told these things to the apostles but these words seemed to them an idle tale and they did not believe them but Peter rose and ran to the tomb stooping and looking in and he saw the linen cloths by themselves anyone home marveling at what had happened the grass withers and the flower fades but the word of our god and yours for ever let us pray speak lord for your servants are listening I mean the words of my mouth and the meditations of our hearts be holy and acceptable to you oh lord our rock and our redeemer for it is in the name of your son our precious lord and savior Jesus Christ and by the power of the Holy Spirit that we pray then well today we're going to continue our discussion about the witnesses to the resurrection and any honest in depth discussion about the witnesses to the resurrection of Jesus Christ would be absolutely unthinkable without paying significant attention to Mary Magdalene so who was Mary Magdalene Magdeleine was a Galilean woman probably from the town of Magdala which was a rough frontier fishing town on the west bank of the sea of Galilee because Magdalo was a town with a bad reputation by association it's often thought that Mary must also had a bad reputation and unfortunately she is often commonly but wrongly painted as a prostitute there is however no scriptural evidence to support that allegation but she became a stalwart follower of Jesus Christ and was part of a small group of women who supported the earthly mission of Jesus financially and who provided for Jesus and the twelve out of their own finances out of their own means for most of the story she remained in the background that is until that fateful Holy Week when she became an eye witness to the resurrection like the other witnesses to the resurrection Mary story begins with a traumatic crisis of the death of Jesus she was there at all gotcha she saw him crucified she heard the clanging hammering the jeering spectators she heard the condemnation of the holy man she watched the callous soldiers roll dice for his clothes and she felt the convulsions of Jesus's own sobbing mother Mary and she cried in her arms watching her son died on the cross she heard Christ's last words and then she saw him die finally when it was all over she had seen him laid to rest in a borrowed tomb the only mercy but he'd been shown on that horrible day Mary felt all the pain experienced by the apostles felt all the trauma experienced by the others the big difference though was that she stayed with Jesus she stayed with him the whole time from the cross to the grave and no one knew better than she but he was truly dead that level of trauma should have crushed her the world she knew had collapsed the life she knew was over Luke says that on the first day of the week at early dawn she and others went to the tomb taking the spices that they had prepared early on that morning Mary and a few other women worse during wrestling themselves awake it would have been so easy for Mary and for the others just to roll over and go back to sleep the given to our exhaustion actually that morning when the weight of his death was still so heavy she and the others had work to do so gathering up their spices doing on his body they set off they went to the tomb they wouldn't think of letting him go without paying tribute without one final touch she made herself available to the lord that morning to go and serve and he gave her the energy to Sir you have you ever been so emotionally physically and spiritually exhausted but you just couldn't get out of bed you didn't have the energy to rice our lives are so ridiculously busy and turned over right now it's so easy to give in to the exhaustion of this crisis and so we miss the gift of god's energy and I pray that the lord would give you the energy to get out of bed in the morning and to serve him if he would give that to all of us but it wasn't just an issue of energy was also an issue of courage why was Mary so loyal to Jesus in the first place well if we dig a little deeper into merry story we read that when Jesus found her she was in the grip of demonic possession as a matter of fact the scripture tells us that she was possessed by seven demons I can't even begin to imagine the darkness and the pain of Mary's life the Bible doesn't give us any details about Mary's own situation but in other places the New Testament we read descriptions of other people plagued by demons throwing themselves in the fires raging against their neighbors muttering blasphemies broken scared violent alone I mean she was literally in her own personal health and then she's a center free she was no longer living in the dark night of terror a slave to the lies and the abuse of the enemy Jesus cast out all her darkness and she was embraced and loved by the light of the son of god because of what Jesus did for her she was not going to give up on him even though he was dead at the moment of greatest danger she went to the tomb because god gave merry Magdeleine her courage her loyalty to Jesus over road for fear of arrest she was not going to cut and run and even though it was dangerous and even though it would be painful to see him god had put in her attend massively a loyalty that would not let her let him go even though he was dead her gratitude drove her to the tune to serve him and honor him one last time instead of running away from Jesus even the dead Jesus she held on Zacks grace because it defies every human instinct all the disciples ran and hid she doubled down you know be so easy to give in to fear in this crisis unlike merry I just pray that the lord will give us the courage that you and I need right now when Mary and the others got to the team they found the stone rolled away and discovered that the body of Jesus was missing the Bible says that while they were perplexed about this which is a gentle way of saying that they were completely freaked out they were met by two men in dazzling white cliffs and the man said why do you seek the living among the dead he's not here but he is risen remember how he told you while he was still in Galilee that the son of man must be delivered into the hands of sinful men and be crucified on the third day and rice I mean there were Mary and her companions looking for Jesus but they were looking for him in the wrong place how many times have you and I look for life in places where there's only death for fullness where there's only emptiness for substance weather's only smoke I mean I've peered into so many tunes of fame and wealth I've stepped in the caverns where the powerful in the popular preside my offerings to the pleasures of this world looking for life and joy and then I hear that whisper that cuts like a tip of the sword slices through the noise that asks me why are you looking for life here why are you looking for the living among the dead look for Jesus look where life can be found these two heavenly beings that met Marion the others at the tomb remind me of the importance of good teachers and leaders circle teacher small group leader Sunday school teachers they remind me of those teachers because they did too thanks they told Mary and the others that they were looking for Jesus in the wrong place and they told them to turn around and turn back to his word remember how he told you while he was still in Galilee the son of man must be delivered into the hands of sinful men and be crucified and on the third day rice if we're going to grow as god's witnesses we need teachers and leaders who will challenge us when we are looking for love in all the wrong places we need people who are gonna put us on the path to god's word and so it's so important for us to have credible godly competent teachers who know the Bible you know the world and you know the difference the truth is we all need wisdom right now as we see Christ as we make decisions I pray that the lord will put teachers and leaders in.

"From first Corinthians fifteen beginning at verse one let's listen to god's word for us this day now I remind you brothers and sisters of the good news that I proclaim to you which you in turn received in which also you stand through which also you are being saved if you're home free hold firmly to the message that I proclaimed to you unless you have some come to believe in vain for right handed on to you as of first importance what I in turn had received that Christ died for our sins in accordance with the scriptures and that he was buried and that he was raised on the third day in accordance with the scriptures immediate peer to see first then to the twelve then it appeared to more than five hundred brothers and sisters at one time most of whom are still alive though some have died then he appeared to James then to all the apostles last of all the one on timely born he appeared also to me this is the word of our lord thanks be to god I got the lesson this morning is taken from Luke chapter twenty four beginning at the thirteenth verse let's listen together to god's words to us now on that same day two of them were going to a village called email us about seven miles from Jerusalem and we're talking with each other about all these things that have happened and while they were talking and discussing Jesus himself came near and went with them but their eyes were kept from recognizing him and he said to them what are you discussing with each other while you walk along they stood still looking sad then one of them whose name was clear opus answered him are you the only stranger in Jerusalem who does not know the things that have taken place there in these days he asked them what things they replied the things about Jesus of Nazareth who was a prophet mighty in deed and word before god and all the people and how our chief priests and leaders handed him over to be condemned to death and crucified him but we had hoped that he was the one to redeem Israel and yes and beside all of this it is now the third day since these things took place moreover some women of our group was founded us they were at the tumor early this morning and when they did not find his body there they came back and told us that they had indeed seen the vision of angels who said that he was alive some of those who were with us went to the tomb and found it just as the women had said but we did not see him then he said to them how foolish you are and how slow of heart to believe all the profits of declared was it not necessary that the messiah should suffer these things and then enter into his glory and then beginning with Moses and all the profits he interpreted to interpreted to them the things about himself in all the scriptures as they came near to the village to which they were going he walked ahead as if he was going on they urged him strongly saying stay with us because it is almost evening and the day is now nearly over so he went in to stay with them and when he was at table with them he took bread lasted and broke it and gave it to them then their eyes were opened and they recognized him and he vanished from their sight they said to each other were not our hearts burning within us while he was talking to us on the road while he was opening the scriptures to us and that same hour they got up and returned to Jerusalem they found the eleven their companions gathered together they were saying the lord has risen indeed and he has if he has appeared to Simon then they told what had happened on the road and how he had made known to them he was made known to them in the breaking of the bread and let us pray hello thank you for the gift of the scriptures this truth of this message we would pray now that the words of my mouth the meditations of our hearts together might find acceptance in your site bridges in through and for the sake of Christ we pray at a man have you ever had the experience of seeing someone you think you should know but then not quite being able to come up with their name or even how it is that you know them I know all of us have had that experience some of us are now talking that up to aging but we tend to look for people in the places we expect to see them and then fail to recognize them when they are out of place one of my very very favorite stories is of some friends of my parents who years ago decided to take a trip around the world leaving Saint Louis the husband felt certain that somewhere along the line he was going to run into someone that he knew so three weeks into the trip they are in Rome they still haven't found anybody that they've known and he was walking down a busy street when he spotted a man that he recognized he knew that he knew this fellow in fact he felt like he knew him really well that he had been in their home but in his excitement he couldn't come up with a man's name so not wanting to miss this opportunity he decided he would swallow his pride and boldly reintroduce himself so he approached this familiar stranger and said hello I'm at mangle store from Saint Louis the gentleman turned and said to him and it is nice to meet you I'm Walter Cronkite from New York well I love that story of course he didn't know him all right I'm I'm sorry of course he knew him but he didn't recognize Walter Cronkite had been in the mangle stores home numerous times before it just didn't expect to see him on the streets of Rome I cannot read the road to MAS story without thinking of that story this passage from Luke's gospel is one of V. great short stories in all of scripture perhaps all in all of literature two of Jesus followers are walking from Jerusalem to the little community of the mayor is just seven miles west of the city it is Sunday it is the first day it is that very day we're told in scripture meaning it's the Easter day as they walked they spoke of their sadness for the one they had hoped would redeem Israel had been arrested and crucified only three days earlier their hopes that he was the promised messiah were dashed in hopelessness pervaded their journey home my guess is some of our walks some of our talks recently have been similarly clouded with a sense of sadness hopelessness or at least hopelessness in the midst of this pandemic haven't they so we get some sense of what they were feeling yet as they walked a stranger came along side them a most unusual man really for he too had been in Jerusalem but he professed to knowing nothing this man Jesus or the events that had taken place in the city that week however as the disciples told their story and I should mention their story is a wonderful synopsis of the whole gospel message as they told their story this stranger in turn completed their telling by explaining how all of these events including Jesus suffering and death and subsequent resurrection fulfilled all the promises of scripture what a strange conversation with a strange fella who suggested that he knew nothing and yet he seemed to know everything the disciples were looking for answers to help them make sense out of their senseless worlds and this fellow seem to have them all immediately there was something familiar about him he was revealing truths to them in a manner that they felt they had heard before but they simply didn't recognize him for who he was you see they didn't expect to see him they certainly didn't expect to see him there they didn't they couldn't until he sat with them and broke bread and it was then that their eyes were opened and they recognized him we can almost hear them saying of course we should have recognized him on the road I knew there was something familiar about him didn't our hearts burn within us as he spoke that's the moment of recognition that's the aha moment when we find the answer or we better when the answer is revealed to us the moment when our hearts are open and we're given the eyes to see what we haven't been able to see before this is a moment of faith when we realize that Jesus is alive and present with us still years ago I heard a lecture by an associate of Dr Elizabeth Kubler Ross the woman who did such pioneering work on death and dying his name was doctor a Mara and he spoke about his experiences with the terminally ill he told one particular story that I've never forgotten he was visiting with a woman who was in her final stages of cancer the woman named Anna told him that she desperately wanted to see Dr Kubler Ross but before he was able to convey that message to her and I died several days later Dr Ammar was walking down the halls of the hospital when a woman approached him that he did not know addressed him by name and ask him to deliver a letter to Dr Kubler Ross there's a look at this woman he recognized something familiar about her as if he had known her from somewhere before but he couldn't place her and after she left he remembered her eyes reminded him of Anna's eyes the woman who had recently died she didn't look like Anna but something told him it really it was her so he said he frantically searched the halls of the hospital trying to find her to no avail but when they opened the letter it was a hand written note of appreciation for the good care she had received and it was signed and the admittedly the questions that story raises are many and yet the experience is so familiar it so closely resembles that of the disciples on the road to a mass Dr imara never expected to see him again she had died the disciples never expected to see Jesus again they were too busy grieving the fact that he too was dead they weren't looking for him they never expected to see him but their blindness was not a disease of the eyes but of the heart they didn't yet have eyes of faith to recognize him as the risen lord and they wouldn't they couldn't until he revealed himself to them in the common act of breaking a piece of bread friends this is far more than a beautiful story about something that happened long ago to someone else in another place this really is our story your story and mine and it happens again and again as we too are slow to see or to recognize the risen Christ in our midst today like the disciples of yesterday we walk our own emails rounds with heads down shoulders slumped carrying at times which seems like the burdens of the whole world particularly now in this season when we're concerned about our own health or the health of our of our kids or our parents or our grandchildren our.

"From the gospel of Luke chapter twenty four beginning at verse thirty six let us listen to god's word for us while they were talking about this Jesus himself stood among them and said to them peace be with you they were startled and terrified and thought that they were seeing a ghost he said to them why are you frightened why'd you doubts arise in your hearts look at my hands and my feet see that it is I myself touch me and see for ghost does not have flesh and bones as you see that I have and when he had said this he showed them his hands and his feet while in their joy they were disbelieving and still wondering he said to them have you anything here to eat they gave him a piece of broiled fish and he took it and ate in their presence then he said to them these are my words that I spoke to you while I was with you that everything written about me in the law of Moses the profits in the psalms must be fulfilled then he opened their minds to understand the scriptures you said to them thus it is written that the messiah is to suffer and to rise from the dead on the third day that repentance and forgiveness of sins is to be proclaimed in his name to all nations beginning from Jerusalem you are witnesses of these things and see I am sending upon you but my father promise so stay here in the city and so you have been close with with power from on high this is the word of our lord thanks be to god I am so glad you are here this evening what a day this has been what an incredible glorious unbelievable day it has been I think I've lost track of time I know it's late but my mind is filled it's racing I'm I'm too tired to think I'm too excited to go to sleep some just glad you're here you've heard the news haven't you about Jesus not that he's dead this is a life it's all true I've seen it myself many of us have in fact we saw I'm right here today if you haven't heard this you need to sit down because I've got a lot to tell you and I promise you it's all good and it's all true it began early this morning this is still Sunday right yes it began early this morning the women Mary the other Mary Joanna couple of the others perhaps went to the tomb to finish the work of burial no we didn't go I mean why would we what was there for us to do we saw him I mean that was just three days ago we saw him hanging on that cross we saw him suffer we saw him die we saw with a lady in the in the tomb what were we to do you were there you saw it yourself and so the women went to the tomb to to finish that morbid task we assume they wouldn't be gone long but then again what did we now apparently when they got to the tomb that they found that the gravestone had already been rolled away and then they looked into the tomb and they saw that the tomb was empty and they were confused by this this is a welder in to them they wondered what was happening what was going on yes that's exactly what they thought they thought the body had been stolen I mean that was a natural thing to think but who would want a body who would want a dead body who would want Jesus body if anybody wanted it would have been us right but we didn't want it and then suddenly two angels appeared to the women and they said why do you look for the living among the dead he's not here he is risen just as he said and without the women ran from the tomb they came back to find us they were shouting he's alive he's alive now I tell you it was early in the morning I was just awakening and I heard them yelling it didn't quite make sense what they were saying and then when I heard clearly what they were saying I'll confess to you I didn't believe it I mean how could I believe it we saw him die on that cross just three days ago and now they're saying he's not dead he's alive how can we believe that but when they began to tell us all that they had seen Peter and John got up and ran to the tomb they found it just as the women described it the the grave stone had been rolled away and when they looked in they saw the grave close very close that we wrapped Jesus in lying there and they knew for themselves that it was true this convinced them not just of the tomb was empty but the Jesus is alive that's the good news all of that happened earlier today and we have spent this day right here just a few of us talking together what does this mean and now what are we to do about it we found ourselves laughing and then crying believing and then not believing this whole day all we have done is is talk and think and pray and laugh and cry as we come to believe that it's really really true it was just after supper this evening we had finished our evening meal when two of the followers well you know one of them Cleophus from over in emails then another apparently they left early this morning before any of this news came out they thought why stay in the city any longer let's go back home let's get on with our lives well they came running back they were breathless they pounded on our door let us in let us in and when we opened our door we were so excited to see them we we said we've got good news to tell you he's alive and they said we know we've seen him ourselves well no wonder they were breathless they ran all the way back from E. mails to tell us this news I mean what is F. seven miles and this is what they said they said as we were leaving the city we are walking towards home when suddenly a stranger came and began to walk with us someone we didn't recognize it all and he began to talk with us about all the events that have happened in the city that week and then he began to unfold for us the meaning of the scriptures of how the messiah would come and how the prophecies of war were being fulfilled in this one Jesus of Nazareth and we wondered how he knew all of this but we didn't recognize this man and then when we got to the city when we got to our homes we invited this stranger to stay and have supper with us and as he sat at the table we broke the bread and suddenly our eyes were opened and we recognized him it was Jesus it was Jesus himself he was a stranger who had been walking with us the entire day and then suddenly he vanished he was gone and that's when we ran back to tell you the good news and here we thought we had good news to share with them so shortly after that here in this very room Jesus appeared to us to us he came right here he stood right here and the first we were startled we were terrified we we thought perhaps he was a ghost I mean how do you even get in here all day long the doors and windows have been shattered and locked we've been terrified of the authorities we've wondered what they would do to us having seen what they did to him and then suddenly he just appeared among us I can knock on the door he just appeared and we thought he was a ghost I thought he was a ghost but then he did the re most remarkable thing he said peace be with you I love that greeting of Jesus didn't you always love it when he would say that to a piece no matter what kind of chaos we're in no matter what kind of trouble we were in no matter what kind of turmoil Jesus would say he's and suddenly there was peace it wasn't like he was just saying those words this isn't just a grieving he give us this is a gift that he would give to us please he would say and so as he stood there he said peace be with you and I am still thinking that this is a ghost I mean even after all that we have heard today I'm still not understanding that it really could be true but as he stood there I got to thinking to myself there will come a day when some people will say well Jesus never lived at all well we know that's not true we walked with him we talked with him we listen to him preach and teach we watched him heal people and perform miracles we know that Jesus live and there will be a day I'm sure when some people will say he never died well we know that's not true we watched him die we watched him die on that cross we watched him suffer and die we were there we saw it I'll never forget that day you'll never forget that day we know he died but here I am thinking I'm not sure I can believe that he is really alive now in Jesus must have seen something in my face or something in my eyes because he turned to me and said come see the nail prints in my hand and in my feet come and see that it is me he was inviting me to touch his wounds just to prove that it was really him and I didn't I could have but I didn't because I didn't need to I knew in that instance that it was really him and then he did the most incredible thing he said have you anything to eat around here it sounded exactly like one of my kids rummaging through the pantry calling to my wife is there anything to eat around here and so we gave him a piece of the broiled fish that we had for dinner in the area ghosts don't eat broiled fish this is not an encounter with the dead we had this is proved to us that Jesus is alive right here right in this place with us I think I told you I'm losing track of time but he stayed with his really quite awhile he started telling us again things that he has been telling us all along stories that we've heard him say before but he wanted us to hear again it was almost as if he was giving us the a review for the final test he told us of the prophecies of the scriptures of how the messiah would come the messiah of god and that he was that one he explained to us again how the law and the prophets and the psalms all point to him he told us again how he had instructed us that coming to Jerusalem he would suffer and die and then be raised again on the third day these are stories that we have heard him say over and over again that we never really understood never really believed until today and now I know that what he's saying to us is really true we all believed it except for Thomas poor Thomas Thomas wasn't with us this evening I don't know where it was but he wasn't here and when he returned we we told him everything that Jesus had said to us how it appeared to us all that he had taught us and Thomas said I don't believe you and it wasn't that he was saying he didn't believe what we were saying you didn't believe what we believe he was saying I can't believe like you believe and I won't believe like you believe until I get to see the nail prints in his hand until I can touch the wound in his side I can't believe and I don't blame him I'm not sure I could believe if I had seen what I have seen them and that's going to be a challenge for us how will people ever come to believe that Jesus really is alive if they haven't seen what we have seen if they haven't seen him like we have seen him.

"So Jesus rose physically and it's important that we understand that in fact in Luke Chapter Twenty four after the resurrection versus thirty six to forty three three. Jesus appears to his apostles. They're tripping out there like I can't believe they're seeing Jesus he rose from the dead and they're thinking and they they get scared because it says that they thought they were seaney any spirit and it says he said this verse three six forty three he said why are you trouble and why did doubts. Arise Arts see my hands and my feet that is I myself touch and see touch me a C.. For Spirit says Jesus a spirit does not have flesh and bones as you see that I have and when he said this showed them his hands and his feet while they still could not believe it because of their joy amazement he said to them have anything to eat. They gave him a piece of Bro Fish and he took it and ate it before them. What do you think he took it? What do you think he ate because he was hungry as probably a little hungry? I don't doubt that. But guess he's got a resurrected body. I don't think they necessarily eat. But guess what he wants to let them know. Hey guess what. I'M GONNA resurrected human body and a member doubting Thomas After Twenty the gospel of John. I twenty six twenty eight. She's chosen stick his fingers into his wounds. And Thomas Falls down he says my Lord and my God literally the Lord of me and the God of all this is really really important guys understand We read about the physical resurrection over and over again. And to deny that it's a physical. Resurrection is to just deny very clear scriptures in Matthew Twenty seven fifty. I'm fifty three after. Jesus died for sins and he rose. We read it versus fifty one of fifty. Three bodies rose up from the tombs and went into the city and show themselves alive as evidence that Jesus was the Christ in fact it's interesting We can go on and on and on with those passages but I think one thing I want to point out to you guys is. There's passage after passage of scripture after scripture. That says when Jesus returns that our bodies will be like his well. We already song that Jesus rose again physically right where you saw that. He he rose again from the dead right. Well listen to what the scriptures say. We has a physical body. He said see my hands. See my feet. He he ate. Well guess what the Scriptures say that. You're going to be like his when he returns fact and I John Three two says beloved. Now we're the children of God and has not yet appeared as yet what we shall be we. We know that when he appears we shall be like him because we shall see him just as he is would be like him. He's got to resurrect physical body. Philippians three twenty-one says that WHO Christ Christ will transform our lowly body would transform our lowly by your physical body guys that may be conformed to his glorious body audie according to the working by which he is able to even do all things to himself and Romans Chapter Eight says that he will give life to our mortal bodies over over and over and over again. We see this these prophecies these scriptures of this physical resurrection that we're going to experience and our buys are going to be like the buys of the vital. Jesus this Christ. This is so important guys because wrong doctrine leads to wrong living and I wrote down a says actually their doctrine would spread like gangrene so upset the faith of some it says that it spread like cancer dependent translation the Net Bible and their their message will spread. It's affecting like gangrene. We'll guess what that doctors spreading today it's known as full predators. It's among the NAS sticks as well. The King James has in their message will spread like cancer the J. M. S. version. Joseph Michael Schimmel translation says quote the diabolical message will spread like a deadly flesh eating disease. That's what it basically saying. Guys guys stand fast and the truth stand against. He's false teaching stick with Jesus because stay away from You know what spend a Lotta time the word of God and test everything that we say because people are being led astray left and right and we always want to stand in the truth. Walk in the living the truth. We're looking forward to his return for the blessed hope of Lord. Jesus Christ where he's going to come every is going to see him when be caught up to beat in the air and will receive this glorious bodies that are made like on his glorious body. We hope to see you. Pray for those. People are teaching false teachings that they'd repent pray for those. We're listening any of them so that less people be lost and more people will see Jesus when he returns. We love you guys.

"In a last seven about archaeological discoveries in Bible lands according to Christian today magazine and other magazines like Jerusalem post and we were at number six talk about the low that is the a mosaic showing Jesus in the five thousand was discovered on the floor of the ruins of the Byzantine church that was the sixth most significant find in two thousand nineteen and when I was about to say in ending this particular part was that the location of this place was visiting church is not the expected location for that miracle to have been performed it is actually believe to been performed further north because of this something that the music as an identifier of this particular location there's actually some believe that was performed near this churches we'll never know but it is interesting and in the top ten most significant archaeological discoveries of two thousand nineteen number five a seal belonging to Dallas you son of humor that may mean nothing to you at all the province revealed to me I think but it is a biblical name the Temple Mount sifting project that's an actual project the Temple Mount sifting project re open to new locations around Jerusalem recently and as the sifting projects were occurring researchers announced the discovery of a clay seal impression we call the blue light and the archaeological world identifying it as quote the first readable ancient Hebrew inscription found on the Temple Mount on quote the priestly family of Emaar served in the temple and this could be found in first chronicles chapter twenty four and past sure son of Emaar is called the chief official in the temple of ya away when he had Jeremiah beaten and put into stocks and that's discovered in Jeremiah chapter twenty so historical connection to a little seal that had considerably the oldest ancient Hebrew inscription found the Temple Mount that was discovered this last year number four on the list a sealed lots of seals in this west SCO belonging to add an ad in Asia oils steward another seal or below we like to say was found and sifted material taken from under Robinson's arch at the southwest corner of the Temple Mount in two thousand thirteen has been dated to the seventh century BC three men in the Old Testament are named Adam Adam as John including a son of David but none of them live in the seventh century so this is probably a fourth add in a job not the one in the Bible the position of well Stewart is known from several biblical tax so it deals with names that we know we're in the Old Testament but the dating doesn't suggest that these were the actual people represented but none the less is an important fight number third on the list another seal this seal of Nathan Melek the king's servant it's interesting to note that this particular scabrous actually ranked number one discovery of the look archaeology in the Jerusalem post so this is ranked number one by the court to see T. it's ranked number three and what is this discovery what is this fine well a two thousand six hundred year old seal from the kingdom of Judah bearing the inscription quote belonging to Nathan Melek servants of the king was on earth in Jerusalem both the title servant of the king and the name Nathan Melek up here and the second kings chapter twenty three were Nathan Melica subscribe as an official in king Josiah's courts now Tom Scott scholars believe with certainty that the ascription Nathan Melek that is found on the seal and the biblical name all referring to one and the same person this year was found in the glove box to parking lot excavation which is the largest ongoing excavation in Jerusalem sense two thousand seven archaeologists recovered it from the ruins of a building that was probably destroyed during the Babylonian destruction of Jerusalem and five eighty six BC the second number two most significant archaeological discovery of two thousand nineteen the cure yes your remote identified as a may S. the story of the road to a mass is found in the book of Luke chapter twenty four verse is thirteen to thirty four the location of a mess is a scribe as sixty Roman stadia from Jerusalem which is really about seven miles but for centuries scholars have tried to pin down the exact location of man's but haven't been able to do so with certainty until now MAS apparently is the place that is known as today RAF your redeem two words K. I. R. I. A. T. H. and your room like the word year Y. E. A. R. I am this place correct three name is mentioned numerous times the Old Testament most famously as a place where the ark of the covenant was held before David moved it to Jerusalem so apparently this city which has been known is actually the name a may S. which was a mystery to many people and if you don't know that story go to your Bible look at the book of Luke chapter twenty four and reverses thirteen thirty four an amazing story about what happened in Jesus revealing himself to two disciples after his resurrection all right the number one archaeological discovery of two thousand nineteen is the pilgrimage road opens in Jerusalem when archaeologist archaeologists discovered the New Testament era palus alone which is in found in John chapter nine in two thousand four during a sewer repair project when they were pairing this project they also discovered the lower end of the first century street that led up to the Temple Mount and since then work has been underway to excavate this street so that Jewish and Christian programs today can walk on the same road that Jewish and Christian programs walked on in the first century the underground street is not entirely accessible yet but it's certainly an opening part of the street that was done last summer drew many people including US ambassador among many other dignitaries so it had political implications as well so these are the top archaeological explorations and discoveries of two thousand nineteen on our website I will put a link to the articles that I derived information from for you to peruse and to look at yeah these proofs show us year after year the Bible is actually true every year there's something new this being made discovered found that is really designed to equip and defended a champion the authority and the historicity that the Bible lays out you see the Bible does a depth about people groups doesn't it echoes the death about geography empires kingdoms and gives us names and time markers and so if you wanted to disprove the Bible all you would have to do is to show what it says in regard to vans or to people or to geographic locations or the empire's is wrong and you could have a shut case but after all of our technology after all of our digging for over a hundred years and after looking exploring examining and testing everything we see in the dirt and in the sides of mountains confirms again and again and again that what the Bible has said as reliable and can be trusted and therefore is true Nelson Glueck a rabbi and one of the most famous and accomplished archaeologists of all time said quote no archaeological discovery has ever controverted a biblical reference unquote and that fact stands today it turns out that archaeology scientific acquiring and history are the Bible's best friends out of a couple of links that as I mentioned earlier that I will put on a website for you to look at to take out and I'll keep doing that so as we get into two thousand twenty all be letting you know the listener any new discoveries that will be found out speaking the Bible what I like to do now is to move to the text of the Bible I did say I was gonna do that earlier that night but now we get to do it the first John chapter three now it has been awhile since we talked about first honest so what I would like to do is to provide a brief overview just to make sure that we're all on the same page this will be quick and so without any delay let me begin with that for the first epistle John is the first and the largest of three letters written by the apostle John it has five chapters in like the other two letters connected with it it is located near the end of the New Testament this letter is unique among the other letters of the New Testament as I said before twenty one of the twenty seven books of the New Testament our letters what is unique about this first letter is that number one the author doesn't reveal himself whereas the other authors of the other letters of the new testament to reveal their identity another feature is that this letter doesn't have the same form or style of the other letters of the New Testament it really has the characteristics of.

"Away to take the punishment on himself. And if you look at the Old Testament which is two thirds of the Bible the Hebrew scriptures. It's really the story story of how God works through the Nation of Israel to bring forth. Messiah that's what it's all about so you got creation however far back that was you got out of me. If you've got Noah hello you've got the fall of Adam and eve and then you've got the second fall with regard to the NFL team and you can read all about that in our that's controversial. But there's a passage judge in genesis six versus one to four and right after Genesis six verses one to four. God says we need to destroy this place because these people are evil so now and after Noah you've got a period where you've got the Patriarchs you've got the tower Babylon as I mentioned earlier where God confused the languages and he assigns different elohim. These are not gods they. They're not God capital G. They're small all g their spiritual beans any assigns the Divine Council he is assigned to Divine Council other nations and he decides to work exclusively possibly through Israel to bring forth a messiah. Who's going to be able to save everybody? And bless all nations and so right after you have the Tower of Babel in in genesis eleven in Genesis. Twelve Abraham appears and. He's the patriarch through him. Everybody else is going to be blessed. And then you've got Abraham you've got Isaac you've got Jacob. The whole story of genesis deals with those three main characters from genesis. Twelve on Abraham Isaac Jacob up into Joseph and then you have the slavery in Egypt and ultimately timidly the exodus which begins in fourteen forty six BC now in January. We're going to have tightest Kennedy and archaeologist and Stephen Meyer. We're who is very good at archaeology as well. You know. We've had him on the program for issues related to Intelligent design. But he's also into archaeology. See Those Two gentlemen from the Discovery Institute are going to tell us about new evidence at we'll get into that there's also been an inscription found found that Dr Kennedy himself went to the Sudan to verify. Apparently there's been an inscription found of Y'all way all the way back to fourteen hundred BC which would be the X.'s. It is time in in Sudan. which at that time was probably southern in southern Egypt? I should say anyway. We're going to get into all that later. So you've got the exodus we got characters like Erin. I mean Moses Aaron and Pharaoh you have the forty year wandering I believe they wandered more on a Saudi peninsula in the Sinai Peninsula. I believe the real Mount Sinai as Jabal laws in in Saudi Arabia and by the way Saudi Arabia has just opened up to tourism to that area and we may go in the coming years to Saudi Arabia to see the real Mount Sinai. Stay tuned for that this coming year. We're going to Israel and so from fourteen O six. Which is the conquest where Joshua takes over Jericho which is is just across the Jordan River into the promised land into Canaan which later turned to be Israel? You've got characters Joshua Caleb Rahab and after the conquest there's really from about thirteen seventy five all the way to about ten fifty. You've got three hundred twenty five years. The judges you got characters. Like Gideon Samson Ruth. You've heard these names from the Old Testament these are judges. There's no king there's tribal there's tribes and their governors. I'm governor easy for me to say governing themselves in a tribal way and it's where everyone did what was right in their own is. That's how the book of Judges Judges Ends Until they get king in ten fifty. BC They get a King Saul Saul rules for awhile as you know. David succeeds him and then Solomon elements succeeds. David that lasts until nine thirty one. So what is that one hundred one thousand nine years the Kingdom of Israel from ten fifty BC the two nine thirty one in nine thirty one. There's a split you've got. Israel is the northern kingdom. Judah is the southern kingdom. You've got prophets like Jona. Jose Isaiah they're dealing with the northern kingdom predominantly. You've got other profits dealing with the southern Kingdom mm-hmm people like Daniel Ezekiel Jeremiah. The northern kingdom is destroyed by this Syrians overrun by the Assyrians and seven twenty due to the southern Kingdom Judah less all the way to five eighty six when Nebuchadnezzar and the Persians. Come down the Babylonians come down. And they They take out the city in a five eighty six BC and then you have the exile and they spend seventy years in an exile in Babylon until about five sixteen BC. Then they return they rebuild the walls of the city they rebuild the temple. That's where the Second Temple period begins. And you've got Ezra Nehemiah and esther are some of the key figures in that area right and then about four hundred BC there's a period of silence and that lasts all the way to win. Jesus comes on the scene probably seaborn in about four BC. Okay so I'm giving you the overview of the Bible and the the Messiah comes comes through the bloodline of these major characters in the Old Testament. Particularly if you go to the genealogies geology. Luke traces Christ all the way back to Adam and I think matthew goes all the way back to Abraham and so the bloodline line through which God brings the Messiah to save. The whole world is the Jewish nation and these characters that you read about in the Old Testament demint and it's not until you get to Jesus and the resurrection. Do we learn what our overall mission is so you see. That's the 'em in crime you have creation you have rebellion. You have intervention. Where Jesus comes he takes takes? He takes the sin of the world on himself and then he and then he raises from the dead rises from the dead to prove God and by trusting in him. We can have our sins forgiven. And from that point on the Great Commission is given and we have a mission to tell the whole world about this because we're heading to e attorney that's where we're heddon and there's GonNa be a split. The problem of evil is ultimately going to be solved in this way after Jesus takes evil upon himself. He gives us the opportunity to continue to be with. Jesus which would be to go to heaven and be with him ultimately and be part of his kingdom which will be a recreated heaven and earth by the way we're going to be physical creatures ultimately or we can be separated from him in a place called. Hell that's where eternity entity is heading. Now there's a lot of details that I'm leaving out and we'll get into some of them as we go on here. But that's the overview of the Bible you have creation creation then you have a rebellion and then most of the Bible is talking about the I the intervention you get the mission with the Great Commission Commission in Matthew Twenty eight and then the the books of the Bible after that what are called the epistles deal predominantly with the mission. Shen how do we take. What Christ has told us to do and make disciples of all nations? That's what the epistles are about. And of course course. The book of revelation predominantly is about. What's going to happen ultimately as we get into eternity? That's what the whole Bible Bliss about. Now let's unpack this a little bit further. Jesus is raised from the dead in Luke. Chapter Twenty Four. Here's what happens. He's resurrected he's walking along the road to a May US and the people who you are walking with him. Don't recognize Jesus they basically say something like are you the only one he said. Why are you so dejected? The only ones that don't know what's happened. Ironically Jesus uses was the only one who didn't know what happened and then Jesus says this how foolish you are and how slow of heart to believe all that. The prophets efforts have spoken did not the Christ to suffer these things and then enter his glory and beginning with Moses and all the prophets he explained to them what was said in all the scriptures concerning himself. Wouldn't you have loved her. That wouldn't you of love to hear Jesus explain how the entire Old Testament in a in a microwave pointed to Jesus not every detail but in a macro way that all the scriptures concerning concerning himself that in all the scriptures he explained to them what was said in all the scriptures concerning himself. I would love to have heard that what we can go back. Can we can see what Jesus was talking about when we come back from the break. We're GONNA unpack that a little bit further because the entire scripture the entire the Bible is about resolving this crime that was committed in the beginning and that crime serves as our acronym creation rebellion info intervention mission and eternity.
