The Gospel of the Kingdom

INTRODUCTION: GREEK IMMATERIAL KINGDOM

INTRODUCTION: GREEK IMMATERIAL KINGDOM

And this gospel of the kingdom will be preached in the whole world as a testimony to all nations, and then the end will come. (Matthew 24:14 NIV)

The identification of the Kingdom with the Church has led historically to ecclesiastical policies and programs which, even when not positively evil, have been far removed from the original simplicity of the New Testament ekklēsia.  It is easy to claim that in the “present kingdom of grace” the rule of the saints is wholly “spiritual,” exerted only through moral principles and influence.  But practically, once the Church becomes the Kingdom in any realistic theological sense, it is impossible to draw any clear line between principles and their implementation through political and social devises.  For the logical implications of a present ecclesiastical kingdom are unmistakable, and historically have always led in only one direction, i.e., political control of the state by the Church.  The distances down this road traveled by various religious movements, and the forms of control which were developed, have been widely different.  The difference is very great between the Roman Catholic system and modern Protestant efforts to control the state; also between the ecclesiastical rule of Calvin in Geneva and the fanaticism of Münster and the English “fifth-monarchy.”  But the basic assumption is always the same: The Church in some sense is the Kingdom, and therefore has a divine right to rule; or it is the business of the Church to “establish” fully the Kingdom of God among men.  Thus the Church loses its “pilgrim” character and the sharp edge of its divinely commissioned “witness” is blunted.[1]

  1. The Glory of the Whole Earth[1]

Endow the king with your justice, O God, the royal son with your righteousness… 8 He will rule from sea to sea and from the River to the ends of the earth17 May his name endure forever; may it continue as long as the sun. All nations will be blessed through him, and they will call him blessed.  18 Praise be to the LORD God, the God of Israel, who alone does marvelous deeds.  19 Praise be to his glorious name forever; may the whole earth be filled with his glory. (Psalm 72:1-19 NIV)

messianic-centric-chart

They will neither harm nor destroy on all my holy mountain, for the earth will be full of the knowledge of the LORD as the waters cover the sea.  10 In that day the Root of Jesse will stand as a banner for the peoples; the nations will rally to him, and his place of rest will be glorious… 12 He will raise a banner for the nations and gather the exiles of Israel; he will assemble the scattered people of Judah from the four quarters of the earth. (NIV Isaiah 11:9-12)

Rejoice greatly, O Daughter of Zion! Shout, Daughter of Jerusalem! See, your king comes to you, righteous and having salvation, gentle and riding on a donkey, on a colt, the foal of a donkey.  10 I will take away the chariots from Ephraim and the war-horses from Jerusalem, and the battle bow will be broken. He will proclaim peace to the nations. His rule will extend from sea to sea and from the River to the ends of the earth. (NIV Zechariah 9:9-10)



[1] God’s “kingdom” is referenced throughout the Old and New Testaments, and it is clearly a kingdom that presently rules over all creation (cf. 1 Chron. 29:11; Ps. 103:19; 145:11ff; Jer. 10:7ff; Dan. 4:3, 34; Jn. 19:11; Acts 17:24; Rev. 4:2ff).  However, there are also many messianic references to an eschatological kingdom that is established on the earth (cf. Ps. 2:6ff; Is. 9:7; Dan. 2:44; 7:14; Mt. 8:11; 20:21; Lk. 22:30; 2 Pe. 1:11; Rev. 11:15).  This distinction has been the source of much controversy, which is simply solved by distinguishing between the two primary thrones of creation: one in the height of the heavens (cf. Ps. 2:4; 113:5; Is. 40:22; 66:1) and one delegated to man on the earth (cf. Gen. 1:26ff; Ps. 8:4ff; 115:16).  Thus, the “kingdom of God” needs to be delineated between the “universal kingdom”, ruling over all creation from everlasting to everlasting, and the “messianic kingdom”, to be established upon the earth at the end of the age, restoring the original Adamic order.  However, the particular phrase, “Kingdom of God,” which only occurs in the New Testament, needs to be understood as a Jewish phrase used during the time of the Roman Empire to refer specifically to the Messianic Kingdom.  This was clearly the common Jewish expectation, and it is the plain meaning of the phrase in the vast majority of its usage.

  • Then the seventh angel sounded: and there were loud voices in heaven, saying, “The kingdoms of this world have become the kingdoms of our Lord and of His Christ, and He shall reign forever and ever!” (Revelation 11:15 NKJV)
  • Therefore, accept one another, just as Christ also accepted us to the glory of God.  8 For I say that Christ has become a servant to the circumcision on behalf of the truth of God to confirm the promises given to the fathers,  9 and for the Gentiles to glorify God for His mercy; as it is written, “Therefore I will give praise to you among the Gentiles, and I will sing to your name.” (cf. Ps. 18:49)  10 Again he says, “Rejoice, O Gentiles, with his people.” (cf. Deut. 32:43)  11 And again, “Praise the Lord all you Gentiles, and let all the peoples praise him.” (cf. Ps. 117:1)  12 Again Isaiah says, “There shall come the Root of Jesse, and he who arises to rule over the Gentiles, in Him shall the Gentiles hope.” (cf. Is. 11:10)  13 Now may the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, so that you will abound in hope by the power of the Holy Spirit. (Romans 15:7-13 NASB)
  1. The Glory of Israel

Sing to the LORD a new song, for he has done marvelous things; his right hand and his holy arm have worked salvation for him.  2 The LORD has made his salvation known and revealed his righteousness to the nations3 He has remembered his love and his faithfulness to the house of Israel; all the ends of the earth have seen the salvation of our God.  4 Shout for joy to the LORD, all the earth, burst into jubilant song with music… 8 Let the rivers clap their hands, let the mountains sing together for joy;  9 let them sing before the LORD, for he comes to judge the earth. He will judge the world in righteousness and the peoples with equity. (Psalm 98:1-9 NIV)

For to us a child is born, to us a son is given, and the government will be on his shoulders. And he will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.  7 Of the increase of his government and peace there will be no end. He will reign on David’s throne and over his kingdom, establishing and upholding it with justice and righteousness from that time on and forever. (Isaiah 9:6-7 NIV)

The days are coming, declares the LORD, when I will raise up to David a righteous Branch, a King who will reign wisely and do what is just and right in the land. 6 In his days Judah will be saved and Israel will live in safety. This is the name by which he will be called: The LORD Our Righteousness. (Jeremiah 23:5 NIV)

  • He will be great and will be called the Son of the Most High. And the Lord God will give to him the throne of his father David33 and he will reign over the house of Jacob forever, and of his kingdom there will be no end. (Luke 1:32-33 NIV)
  • He appeared to them over a period of forty days and spoke about the kingdom of God6 So when they met together, they asked him, “Lord, are you at this time going to restore the kingdom to Israel?” (Acts 1:3-6 NIV)
  • They took palm branches and went out to meet him, shouting, “Hosanna! Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord! Blessed is the King of Israel!”  14 Jesus found a young donkey and sat upon it, as it is written… (John 12:13-14 NIV)
  • I tell you the truth, at the renewal of all things, when the Son of Man sits on his glorious throne, you who have followed me will also sit on twelve thrones, judging the twelve tribes of Israel…  29 and will inherit eternal life. (Matthew 19:28-29 NIV)
  1. The Glory of Jerusalem

Since the day I brought my people out of Egypt, I have not chosen a city in any tribe of Israel to have a temple built for my Name to be there… 6 But now I have chosen Jerusalem for my Name to be there, and I have chosen David to rule my people Israel.” (2 Chronicles 6:5-6 NIV)

My days are like the evening shadow; I wither away like grass.  12 But you, O LORD, sit enthroned forever; your renown endures through all generations.  13 You will arise and have compassion on Zion, for it is time to show favor to her; the appointed time has come.  14 For her stones are dear to your servants; her very dust moves them to pity.  15 The nations will fear the name of the LORD, all the kings of the earth will revere your glory.  16 For the LORD will rebuild Zion and appear in his glory21 So the name of the LORD will be declared in Zion and his praise in Jerusalem  22 when the peoples and the kingdoms assemble to worship the LORD. (Psalm 102:11-22 NIV)

In that day the LORD will punish the powers in the heavens above and the kings on the earth below.  22 They will be herded together like prisoners bound in a dungeon; they will be shut up in prison and be punished after many days.  23 The moon will be abashed, the sun ashamed; for the LORD Almighty will reign on Mount Zion and in Jerusalem, and before its elders, gloriously. (Isaiah 24:21-23 NIV)

Sing, O barren woman, you who never bore a child; burst into song, shout for joy, you who were never in labor; because more are the children of the desolate woman than of her who has a husband, says the LORD… 5 For your Maker is your husband— the LORD Almighty is his name– the Holy One of Israel is your Redeemer; he is called the God of all the earth11 O afflicted city, lashed by storms and not comforted, I will build you with stones of turquoise, your foundations with sapphires.  12 I will make your battlements of rubies, your gates of sparkling jewels, and all your walls of precious stones. (Isaiah 54:1-12 NIV)

From the west, men will fear the name of the LORD, and from the rising of the sun, they will revere his glory. For he will come like a pent-up flood that the breath of the LORD drives along.  20 The Redeemer will come to Zion, to those in Jacob who repent of their sins… 60:1 Arise, shine, for your light has come, and the glory of the LORD rises upon you… 3 Nations will come to your light, and kings to the brightness of your dawn… 11 Your gates will always stand open, they will never be shut, day or night, so that men may bring you the wealth of the nations– their kings led in triumphal procession… 19 The sun will no more be your light by day, nor will the brightness of the moon shine on you, for the LORD will be your everlasting light, and your God will be your glory… 21 Then will all your people be righteous and they will possess the land forever… 22 The least of you will become a thousand, the smallest a mighty nation. I am the LORD; in its time I will do this swiftly. (Isaiah 59:16-60:22 NIV)

For behold, I create new heavens and a new earth, and the former things shall not be remembered or come into mind.  18 But be glad and rejoice forever in that which I create; for behold, I create Jerusalem to be a joy, and her people to be a gladness.  19 I will rejoice in Jerusalem and be glad in my people; no more shall be heard in it the sound of weeping and the cry of distress. (Isaiah 65:17-19 NIV)

Return, faithless people, declares the LORD, for I am your husband. I will choose you– one from a town and two from a clan– and bring you to Zion… 16 In those days, when your numbers have increased greatly in the land, declares the LORD, men will no longer say, “The ark of the covenant of the LORD.”  It will never enter their minds or be remembered; it will not be missed, nor will another one be made.  17 At that time they will call Jerusalem The Throne of the LORD, and all nations will gather in Jerusalem to honor the name of the LORD. (Jeremiah 3:14-17 NIV)

  • Then I saw a new heaven and a new earth, for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away, and there was no longer any sea (cf. ).  2 I saw the Holy City, the new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride beautifully dressed for her husband… 11 It shone with the glory of God, and its brilliance was like that of a very precious jewel, like a jasper, clear as crystal.  12 It had a great, high wall with twelve gates, and with twelve angels at the gates. On the gates were written the names of the twelve tribes of Israel22 I did not see a temple (Gk. naos, “inner sanctuary”) in the city, because the Lord God Almighty and the Lamb are its temple23 The city does not need the sun or the moon to shine on it, for the glory of God gives it light, and the Lamb is its lamp.  24 The nations will walk by its light, and the kings of the earth will bring their splendor into it25 On no day will its gates ever be shut, for there will be no night there.  26 The glory and honor of the nations will be brought into it.  27 Nothing impure will ever enter it, nor will anyone who does what is shameful or deceitful, but only those whose names are written in the Lamb’s book of life. (Revelation 21:10-27 NIV)
  1. The Glory of the Temple

When the priests withdrew from the Holy Place, the cloud filled the temple of the LORD.  11 And the priests could not perform their service because of the cloud, for the glory of the LORD filled his temple12 Then Solomon said, “The LORD has said that he would dwell in a dark cloud;  13 I have indeed built a magnificent temple for you, a place for you to dwell forever.” (1 Kings 8:10-13 NIV)

In the last days the mountain of the LORD’s temple will be established as chief among the mountains; it will be raised above the hills, and all nations will stream to it3 Many peoples will come and say, “Come, let us go up to the mountain of the LORD, to the house of the God of Jacob. He will teach us his ways, so that we may walk in his paths.” The law will go out from Zion, the word of the LORD from Jerusalem4 He will judge between the nations and will settle disputes for many peoples. (Isaiah 2:2-4 NIV)

And behold, the glory of the God of Israel was coming from the east. And the sound of his coming was like the sound of many waters, and the earth shone with his glory4 As the glory of the LORD entered the temple by the gate facing east,  5 the Spirit lifted me up and brought me into the inner court; and behold, the glory of the LORD filled the temple6 While the man was standing beside me, I heard one speaking to me out of the temple,  7 and he said to me, “Son of man, this is the place of my throne and the place of the soles of my feet, where I will dwell in the midst of the people of Israel forever. (Ezekiel 43:2-7)

Here is the man whose name is the Branch, and he will branch out from his place and build the temple of the LORD13 It is he who will build the temple of the LORD, and he will be clothed with majesty and will sit and rule on his throne. And he will be a priest on his throne. And there will be harmony between the two. (Zechariah 6:12-13 NIV)

  • Do not let your hearts be troubled. Trust in God; trust also in me.  2 In my Father’s house (cf. Lk. 2:49; Jn. 2:16) are many rooms (cf. Ez. 41-42); if it were not so, I would have told you. I am going there to prepare a place for you (cf. Lk. 22:29; Acts 26:18).  3 And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back and take you to be with me that you also may be where I am. (John 14:1-3 NIV)
  • While he was blessing them, he left them and was taken up into heaven.  52 Then they worshiped him and returned to Jerusalem with great joy.  53 And they stayed continually at the temple, praising God. (Luke 24:51-53 NIV)
  • Every day they continued to meet together in the temple courts. They broke bread in their homes and ate together with glad and sincere hearts,  47 praising God and enjoying the favor of all the people. (Acts 2:46-47 NIV)
  1. The Glory of the Messiah

Great is the LORD, and most worthy of praise, in the city of our God, his holy mountain.  2 It is beautiful in its loftiness, the joy of the whole earth. Like the utmost heights of Zaphon is Mount Zion, the city of the Great King3 God is in her citadels; he has shown himself to be her fortress.  4 When the kings joined forces, when they advanced together,  5 they saw her and were astounded; they fled in terror. (Psalm 48:1-5 NIV)

The LORD swore to David a sure oath from which he will not turn back: “One of the sons of your body I will set on your throne…” 13 For the LORD has chosen Zion; he has desired it for his dwelling place:  14 “This is my resting place forever; here I will dwell (Hb. yashab, “sit enthroned” NIV), for I have desired it… 17 There I will make a horn to sprout for David; I have prepared a lamp for my anointed.  18 His enemies I will clothe with shame, but on him his crown will shine.” (Psalm 132:1-18)

In my vision at night I looked, and there before me was one like a son of man, coming with the clouds of heaven. He approached the Ancient of Days and was led into his presence. 14 He was given authority, glory and sovereign power; all peoples, nations and men of every language worshiped him. His dominion is an everlasting dominion that will not pass away, and his kingdom is one that will never be destroyed. Daniel 7:13 NIV)

  • But the angel said to them, “Do not be afraid. I bring you good news of great joy that will be for all the people.  11 Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; he is Christ the Lord…”  13 Suddenly a great company of the heavenly host appeared with the angel, praising God and saying,  14 “Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace to men on whom his favor rests.” (Luke 2:10-14 NIV)
  • Jesus said to them, “I tell you the truth, at the renewal of all things, when the Son of Man sits on his glorious throne, you who have followed me will also sit on twelve thrones, judging the twelve tribes of Israel.” (Matthew 19:28 NIV)
  • When the Son of Man comes in his glory, and all the angels with him, he will sit on his throne in heavenly glory32 All the nations will be gathered before him, and he will separate the people one from another as a shepherd separates the sheep from the goats. (Matthew 25:31-32 NIV)

NEW TESTAMENT SURVEY OF THE KINGDOM HOPE

I tell you the truth, it is hard for a rich man to enter the kingdom of heaven28 I tell you the truth, at the renewal of all things, when the Son of Man sits on his glorious throne, you who have followed me will also sit on twelve thrones, judging the twelve tribes of Israel… 29 and will inherit eternal life. (Matthew 19:23-29 NIV)

Then the mother of Zebedee’s sons came to Jesus with her sons and, kneeling down, asked a favor of him…  21 “Grant that one of these two sons of mine may sit at your right and the other at your left in your kingdom.”  (Matthew 20:20-21 NIV)

Jesus said to them, “Truly I say to you that the tax collectors and prostitutes will get into the kingdom of God before you43 Therefore I say to you, the kingdom of God will be taken away from you and given to a people, producing the fruit of it.” (Matthew 21:31, 43 NASB)

Then the King will say to those on his right, ‘Come, you who are blessed by my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world. (Matthew 25:34)

Provide purses for yourselves that will not wear out, a treasure in heaven that will not be exhausted… (Luke 12:31-33 NIV)

But when you give a banquet, invite the poor, the crippled, the lame, the blind,  14 and you will be blessed.

Jesus called them to him, saying, “Let the children come to me, and do not hinder them, for to such belongs the kingdom of God17 Truly, I say to you, whoever does not receive the kingdom of God like a child shall not enter it.”  18 And a ruler asked him, “Good Teacher, what must I do to inherit eternal life?” (cf. Mt. 19:14-16; Mk. 10:14-17) (Luke 18:16-18)

Now the works of the flesh are evident: sexual immorality, impurity, sensuality…21 I warn you, as I warned you before, that those who do such things will not inherit the kingdom of God. (Galatians 5:19-21)

For of this you can be sure: No immoral, impure or greedy person– such a man is an idolater– has any inheritance in the kingdom of Christ and of God6 Let no one deceive you with empty words, for because of such things God’s wrath comes on those who are disobedient. (Ephesians 5:5-6 NIV)

Listen, my beloved brothers, has not God chosen those who are poor in the world to be rich in faith and heirs of the kingdom, which he has promised to those who love him? (James 2:5)

(Luke 19:11-12 NIV)

At that time they will see the Son of Man coming in a cloud with power and great glory.  28 When these things begin to take place, stand up and lift up your heads, because your redemption is drawing near31 Even so, when you see these things happening, you know that the kingdom of God is near. (Luke 21:27-31 NIV)

Then comes the end, when hedelivers the kingdomto God the Father after destroying every rule and every authority and power.  25 For he must reign until he has put all his enemies under his feet.  26 The last enemy to be destroyed is death49 Just as we have borne the image of the man of dust, we shall also bear the image of the man of heaven.  50 I tell you this, brothers: flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God, nor does the perishable inherit the imperishable. (1 Corinthians 15:24-50)

For you know how, like a father with his children,  12 we exhorted each one of you and encouraged you and charged you to walk in a manner worthy of God, who calls you into his own kingdom and glory19 For what is our hope or joy or crown of boasting before our Lord Jesus at his coming? Is it not you? (1 Thessalonians 2:11-19)

In the presence of God and of Christ Jesus, who will judge the living and the dead, and in view of his appearing and his kingdom, I give you this charge:  2 Preach the Word… 8 Now there is in store for me the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous Judge, will award to me on that day— and not only to me, but also to all who have longed for his appearing18 The Lord will rescue me from every evil attack and will bring me safely to his heavenly kingdom.

John the Baptist came preaching in the wilderness of Judea,  2 “Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is at hand (Gk. eggizo, “near” NRSV/NIV/NLT).” (cf. Lk. 3:1-18) (Matthew 3:1-2)

  • Heal the sick who are there and tell them, ‘The kingdom of God is near you.’  10 But when you enter a town and are not welcomed, go into its streets and say,  11 ‘Even the dust of your town that sticks to our feet we wipe off against you. Yet be sure of this: The kingdom of God is near.’  12 I tell you, it will be more bearable on that day for Sodom than for that town. (Luke 10:9-12 NIV)
  • Wail, for the day of the LORD is near (“at hand” KJV/NKJV); as destruction from the Almighty it will come! … 9 Behold, the day of the LORD comes, cruel, with wrath and fierce anger, to make the land a desolation and to destroy its sinners from it. (Isaiah 13:6-9)
  • Alas for the day! For the day of the LORD is at hand (“near” NASB/ESV/NIV/NRSV, cf. 2:1; 3:14); it shall come as destruction from the Almighty. (Joel 1:14-15 NKJV)
  • The great day of the LORD is near— near and coming quickly… 15 That day will be a day of wrath, a day of distress and anguish, a day of trouble and ruin, a day of darkness and gloom, a day of clouds and blackness… 18 In the fire of his jealousy the whole world will be consumed, for he will make a sudden end of all who live in the earth. (Zephaniah 1:14-18 NIV)
  • Do this, knowing the time, that it is already the hour for you to awaken from sleep; for now salvation is nearer to us than when we believed.  12 The night is almost gone, and the day is near (“at hand” KJV/NKJV/ESV). (Romans 13:11-12 NASB)

  • Be patient, then, brothers, until the Lord’s coming. See how the farmer waits for the land to yield its valuable crop and how patient he is for the autumn and spring rains.  8 You too, be patient and stand firm, because the Lord’s coming is near (“at hand” ESV/NKJV). (James 5:7-8 NIV)
  • But they will have to give account to him who is ready to judge the living and the dead… 7 The end of all things is near (“at hand” KJV/NKJV/ESV). Therefore be clear minded and self-controlled so that you can pray. (1 Peter 4:5-8 NIV)
  • First of all, you must understand that in the last days scoffers will come, scoffing and following their own evil desires… 7 By the same word the present heavens and earth are reserved for fire, being kept for the day of judgment and destruction of ungodly men.  8 But do not forget this one thing, dear friends: With the Lord a day is like a thousand years, and a thousand years are like a day9 The Lord is not slow in keeping his promise, as some understand slowness. He is patient with you, not wanting anyone to perish, but everyone to come to repentance. (2 Peter 3:3-10 NIV)

Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name,  10 your kingdom come, your will be done on earth as it is in heaven. (Matthew 6:9-10 NIV)

  • But when you pray, go into your room, close the door and pray to your Father, who is unseen. Then your Father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you9 This, then, is how you should pray: “Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name,  10 your kingdom come, your will be done on earth as it is in heaven.  11 Give us today our daily bread.  12 Forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven our debtors.  13 And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from the evil one.”  14 For if you forgive men when they sin against you, your heavenly Father will also forgive you15 But if you do not forgive men their sins, your Father will not forgive your sins. (Matthew 6:6-15 NIV)

Truly, I say to you, among those born of women there has arisen no one greater than John the Baptist. Yet the one who is least in the kingdom of heaven is greater than he (cf. Is. 60:22).  12 From the days of John the Baptist until now the kingdom of heaven has suffered violence (Gk. biazo vPPI 3S), and the violent (Gk. biastes nNMP) take it by force (Gk. harpazo vPAI 3P). (Matthew 11:11-12)

  • When John heard in prison what Christ was doing, he sent his disciples… 7 As John’s disciples were leaving, Jesus began to speak to the crowd about John16 “To what can I compare this generation? … 18 For John came neither eating nor drinking, and they say, ‘He has a demon.’  19 The Son of Man came eating and drinking, and they say, ‘Here is a glutton and a drunkard, a friend of tax collectors and “sinners.”‘  But wisdom is proved right by her actions.”  20 Then Jesus began to denounce the cities in which most of his miracles had been performed, because they did not repent… 22 But I tell you, it will be more bearable for Tyre and Sidon on the day of judgment than for you. (Matthew 11:19-22 NIV)

But if I drive out demons by the Spirit of God, then the kingdom of God has come upon (Gk. phthano epi) you. (Matthew 12:28 NIV)

  • They (Jews) displease God and are hostile to all men  16 in their effort to keep us from speaking to the Gentiles so that they may be saved. In this way they always heap up their sins to the limit. The wrath of God has come upon (Gk. phthano epi) them at last. (1 Thessalonians 2:14-16 NIV)
  • Then they brought him a demon-possessed man who was blind and mute, and Jesus healed him, so that he could both talk and see.  23 All the people were astonished and said, “Could this be the Son of David?”  24 But when the Pharisees heard this, they said, “It is only by Beelzebub, the prince of demons, that this fellow drives out demons.”  25 Jesus knew their thoughts and said to them… 27 “if I drive out demons by Beelzebub, by whom do your people drive them out? So then, they will be your judges28 But if I drive out demons by the Spirit of God, then the kingdom of God has come upon you32 Anyone who speaks a word against the Son of Man will be forgiven (cf. v.23), but anyone who speaks against the Holy Spirit will not be forgiven (cf. v.24), either in this age or in the age to come… 34 You brood of vipers, how can you who are evil say anything good? For out of the overflow of the heart the mouth speaks… 36 But I tell you that men will have to give account on the day of judgment for every careless word they have spoken37 For by your words you will be acquitted, and by your words you will be condemned.” (Matthew 12:22-37 NIV)
  • Since, then, you have been raised with Christ (cf. Rom. 4:17), set your hearts on things above, where Christ is seated at the right hand of God.  2 Set your minds on things above, not on earthly things.  3 For you died, and your life is now hidden with Christ in God.  4 When Christ, who is your life, appears, then you also will appear with him in glory. (Colossians 3:1-4 NIV)
  • But because of his great love for us, God, who is rich in mercy,  5 made us alive with Christ even when we were dead in transgressions– it is by grace you have been saved.  6 And God raised us up with Christ and seated us with him in the heavenly realms in Christ Jesus,  7 in order that in the coming ages he might show the incomparable riches of his grace, expressed in his kindness to us in Christ Jesus. (Ephesians 2:4-7 NIV)

And the disciples came and said to Him, “Why do You speak to them in parables?”  11 Jesus answered them, “To you it has been granted to know the mysteries of the kingdom of heaven, but to them it has not been granted… 13 Therefore I speak to them in parables; because… 15 for the heart of this people has become dull, with their ears they scarcely hear, and they have closed their eyes, otherwise they would see with their eyes, hear with their ears, and understand with their heart and return, and I would heal them. (cf. Is. 6:9-10) (Matthew 13:10-15 NASB)

  • To me, the very least of all saints, this grace was given, to preach to the Gentiles the unfathomable riches of Christ,  9 and to bring to light what is the administration of the mystery which for ages has been hidden in God who created all things… (Ephesians 3:8-9 NASB)

I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven; whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven. (Matthew 16:19 NIV)

  • Then Nathanael declared, “Rabbi, you are the Son of God; you are the King of Israel.”  50 Jesus said, “You believe because I told you I saw you under the fig tree. You shall see greater things than that.”  51 He then added, “I tell you the truth, you shall see heaven open, and the angels of God ascending and descending on the Son of Man.” (John 1:49-51 NIV)
  • To which of the angels did God ever say, “Sit at my right hand until I make your enemies a footstool for your feet”?  14 Are not all angels ministering spirits sent to serve those who will inherit salvation? (Hebrews 1:13-14 NIV)
  • Do you not know that the saints will judge the world? And if you are to judge the world, are you not competent to judge trivial cases?  3 Do you not know that we will judge angels? How much more the things of this life! (1 Corinthians 6:2-3 NIV)
  • He asked. “Who do you say I am?”  16 Simon Peter answered, “You are the Christ, the Son of the living God.”  17 Jesus replied, “Blessed are you, Simon son of Jonah…”  21 From that time on Jesus began to explain to his disciples that he must go to Jerusalem and suffer many things… 24 Then Jesus said to his disciples, “If anyone would come after me, he must deny himself and take up his cross and follow me27 For the Son of Man is going to come in his Father’s glory with his angels, and then he will reward each person according to what he has done.” (Matthew 16:15-27 NIV)

Woe to you, teachers of the law and Pharisees, you hypocrites! You shut the kingdom of heaven in men’s faces. You yourselves do not enter, nor will you let those enter who are trying to.  14   15 Woe to you, teachers of the law and Pharisees, you hypocrites! You travel over land and sea to win a single convert, and when he becomes one, you make him twice as much a son of hell (Gk. gehenna) as you are… 33 You snakes! You brood of vipers! How will you escape being condemned to hell (Gk. gehenna)? (Matthew 23:13-33 NIV)

Once, having been asked by the Pharisees when the kingdom of God would come, Jesus replied, “The kingdom of God does not come with your careful observation,  21 nor will people say, ‘Here it is,’ or ‘There it is,’ because the kingdom of God is within you (Gk. eimi entos humon, “is within you” KJV/NKJV/NIV, “is among you” NRSV/NLT, “is in your midst” NASB, “is in the midst of you” ESV).” (Luke 17:20-21 NIV)

  • Then he said to his disciples, “The time is coming when you will long to see one of the days of the Son of Man, but you will not see it.  23 Men will tell you, ‘There he is!’ or ‘Here he is!’ Do not go running off after them24 For the Son of Man in his day will be like the lightning, which flashes and lights up the sky from one end to the other25 But first he must suffer many things and be rejected by this generation.  26 Just as it was in the days of Noah, so also will it be in the days of the Son of Man… 37 Where there is a dead body, there the vultures will gather. (Luke 17:22-37 NIV)
  • As Jesus was sitting on the Mount of Olives, the disciples came to him privately. “Tell us,” they said, “when will this happen, and what will be the sign of your coming and of the end of the age?”  4 Jesus answered: “Watch out that no one deceives you.  5 For many will come in my name, claiming, ‘I am the Christ,’ and will deceive many… 25 See, I have told you ahead of time.  26 So if anyone tells you, ‘There he is, out in the desert,’ do not go out; or, ‘Here he is, in the inner rooms,’ do not believe it27 For as lightning that comes from the east is visible even in the west, so will be the coming of the Son of Man.  28 Wherever there is a carcass, there the vultures will gather.” (Matthew 24:3-28 NIV)
  • But we know where this man is from (Gk. eimi, “comes from” ESV/NLT); when the Christ comes, no one will know where he is from (Gk. eimi, “comes from” ESV/NLT).”  28 Then Jesus, still teaching in the temple courts, cried out, “Yes, you know me, and you know where I am from (Gk. eimi, “come from” ESV/NLT). I am not here on my own, but he who sent me is true. You do not know him,  29 but I know him because I am from (Gk. eimi, “come from” ESV/NLT) him and he sent me.” (John 7:27-29 NIV)
  • As a lion growls, a great lion over his prey… so the LORD Almighty will come down to do battle on Mount Zion and on its heights5 Like birds hovering overhead, the LORD Almighty will shield Jerusalem; he will shield it and deliver it, he will ‘pass over’ it and will rescue it… 8 Assyria will fall by a sword that is not of man; a sword, not of mortals, will devour them… 9 Their stronghold will fall because of terror; at sight of the battle standard their commanders will panic,” declares the LORD, whose fire is in Zion, whose furnace is in Jerusalem32:1 See, a king will reign in righteousness and rulers will rule with justice. (Isaiah 31:4-32:1 NIV)
  • See, the LORD is coming with fire, and his chariots are like a whirlwind; he will bring down his anger with fury, and his rebuke with flames of fire.  16 For with fire and with his sword the LORD will execute judgment upon all men, and many will be those slain by the LORD. (Isaiah 66:15-16 NIV)
  • The kingdom of God does not come with your observation,  21 nor will people say, ‘Here it is,’ or ‘There it is,’ because the kingdom of God comes into your midst.” (Author Luke 17:20-21)

And he said, “Jesus, remember me when you come into your kingdom.”  43 And he said to him, “Truly, I say to you, today you will be with me in Paradise.” (Luke 23:42-43)

Jesus answered, “My kingdom is not of (Gk. eimi) this world. If my kingdom were of (Gk. eimi)this world, my servants would have been fighting, that I might not be delivered over to the Jews. But my kingdom is not from (Gk. eimi) the world.” (John 18:36)

So do not let what you regard as good be spoken of as evil.  17 For the kingdom of God is not a matter of eating and drinking but of righteousness and peace and joy in the Holy Spirit. (Rom. 14:16-17)

  • For salvation is nearer to us now than when we first believed.  12 The night is far gone; the day is at hand. So then let us cast off the works of darkness and put on the armor of light13 Let us walk properly as in the daytime, not in orgies and drunkenness, not in sexual immorality and sensuality, not in quarreling and jealousy.  14 But put on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make no provision for the flesh, to gratify its desires. (Romans 13:11-14)
  • For of this you can be sure: No immoral, impure or greedy person– such a man is an idolater– has any inheritance in the kingdom of Christ and of God7 Therefore do not be partners with them.  8 For you were once darkness, but now you are light in the Lord. Live as children of light  9 (for the fruit of the light consists in all goodness, righteousness and truth)  10 and find out what pleases the Lord. (Ephesians 5:5-11 NIV)
  • Accept him whose faith is weak, without passing judgment on disputable matters… 4 Who are you to judge someone else’s servant? To his own master he stands or falls10 You, then, why do you judge your brother? Or why do you look down on your brother? For we will all stand before God’s judgment seat11 It is written: “‘As surely as I live,’ says the Lord, ‘every knee will bow before me; every tongue will confess to God.'”  12 So then, each of us will give an account of himself to God15 Do not by your eating destroy your brother for whom Christ died.  16 Do not allow what you consider good to be spoken of as evil.  17 For the kingdom of God is not a matter of eating and drinking, but of righteousness, peace and joy in the Holy Spirit,  18 because anyone who serves Christ in this way is pleasing to God and approved by men… 22 So whatever you believe about these things keep between yourself and God. Blessed is the man who does not condemn himself by what he approves.  23 But the man who has doubts is condemned if he eats, because his eating is not from faith; and everything that does not come from faith is sin. (Romans 14:1-23 NIV)

Some of you have become arrogant, as if I were not coming to you.  19 But I will come to you very soon, if the Lord is willing, and then I will find out not only how these arrogant people are talking, but what power they have.  20 For the kingdom of God is not a matter of talk but of power (Gk. dunamis). (1 Corinthians 4:18-20 NIV)

  • But understand this, that in the last days there will come times of difficulty.  2 For people will be lovers of self, lovers of money, proud, arrogant, abusive… 4 swollen with conceit, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God,  5 having the appearance of godliness, but denying its power (Gk. dunamis). Avoid such people. (2 Timothy 3:1-5)
  • These people come near to me with their mouth and honor me with their lips, but their hearts are far from me. Their worship of me is made up only of rules taught by men. (Isaiah 29:13 NIV)
  • Listen to this, O house of Jacob, you who are called by the name of Israel and come from the line of Judah, you who take oaths in the name of the LORD and invoke the God of Israel– but not in truth or righteousness… (Isaiah 48:1 NIV)

For day after day they seek me out; they seem eager to know my ways, as if they were a nation that does what is right and has not forsaken the commands of its God… (Isaiah 58:2 NIV)

The Gospel of the Resurrection

INTRODUCTION: THE GREEK IMMATERIAL RESURRECTION

INTRODUCTION: THE GREEK IMMATERIAL RESURRECTION

Now, brothers, I want to remind you of the gospel I preached to you, which you received and on which you have taken your stand.  2 By this gospel you are saved… 3 For what I received I passed on to you as of first importance: that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures,  4 that he was buried, that he was raised on the third day according to the Scriptures… (1 Corinthians 15:1-4 NIV)

Avoid godless chatter, because those who indulge in it will become more and more ungodly.  17 Their teaching will spread like gangrene. Among them are Hymenaeus and Philetus,  18 who have wandered away from the truth. They say that the resurrection has already taken place, and they destroy the faith of some. (2 Timothy 2:16-18 NIV)

But if it is preached that Christ has been raised from the dead, how can some of you say that there is no resurrection of the dead? … 14 if Christ has not been raised, our preaching is useless and so is your faith… 32 If the dead are not raised, “Let us eat and drink, for tomorrow we die.”  33 Do not be misled: “Bad company corrupts good character.”  34 Come back to your senses as you ought, and stop sinning; for there are some who are ignorant of God– I say this to your shame. (1 Corinthians 15:12-34 NIV)

“The early Christians hold firmly to a two-step belief about the future: first, death and whatever lies immediately beyond; second, a new bodily existence in a newly remade world… within early Christianity there is virtually no spectrum of belief about life beyond death… whereas the early Christians were drawn from many strands of Judaism and from widely differing  backgrounds within paganism, and hence from circles that must have held very different beliefs about life beyond death, they all modified that belief to focus on one point on the spectrum… We have plenty of evidence of debates about all sorts of things, and the virtual unanimity on resurrection stands out.  Only in the late second century, a good 150 years after the time of Jesus, do we find people using the word resurrection to mean something quite different from what is meant in Judaism and early Christianity, namely, a spiritual experience in the present leading to a disembodied hope in the future.  For almost all of the first two centuries, resurrection in the traditional sense holds not just center stage but the whole stage.”[1]

BIBLICAL SURVEY OF RESURRECTION HOPE

BIBLICAL SURVEY OF RESURRECTION HOPE

  1. Genesis of Resurrection Hope

So God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him; male and female he created them.  28 God blessed them and said to them… (Genesis 1:27-28 NIV)

Cursed is the ground because of you; through painful toil you will eat of it all the days of your life… 19 By the sweat of your brow you will eat your food until you return to the ground, since from it you were taken; for dust you are and to dust you will return.” (Genesis 3:17-19 NIV)

I will make of you a great nation, and I will bless you and make your name great, so that you will be a blessing.  3 I will bless those who bless you, and him who dishonors you I will curse, and in you all the families of the earth shall be blessed.” (Genesis 12:1-3)

  • The Scripture foresaw that God would justify the Gentiles by faith, and announced the gospel in advance to Abraham: “All nations will be blessed through you.”  9 So those who have faith are blessed along with Abraham, the man of faith… 14 He redeemed us in order that the blessing given to Abraham might come to the Gentiles through Christ Jesus, so that by faith we might receive the promise of the Spirit. (Galatians 3:8-14 NIV)
  • Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven4 Blessed are those who mourn, for they will be comforted5 Blessed are the meek, for they will inherit the earth6 Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they will be filled7 Blessed are the merciful, for they will be shown mercy8 Blessed are the pure in heart, for they will see God9 Blessed are the peacemakers, for they will be called sons of God10 Blessed are those who are persecuted because of righteousness, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. (Matthew 5:3-10 NIV)
  • And to the one who does not work but trusts him who justifies the ungodly, his faith is counted as righteousness,  6 just as David also speaks of the blessing of the one to whom God counts righteousness apart from works:  7Blessed are those whose lawless deeds are forgiven, and whose sins are covered;  8 blessed is the man against whom the Lord will not count his sin.” (cf. Ps. 32:1-2) (Romans 4:5-8 NIV)
  • Behold, I am coming soon! My reward is with me, and I will give to everyone according to what he has done.  13 I am the Alpha and the Omega, the First and the Last, the Beginning and the End.  14 Blessed are those who wash their robes, that they may have the right to the tree of life and may go through the gates into the city. (Revelation 22:12-14 NIV)
  1. Resurrection Hope in the Prophets

Keep me safe, O God, for in you I take refuge2 I said to the LORD, “You are my Lord; apart from you I have no good thing.” … 6 The boundary lines have fallen for me in pleasant places; surely I have a delightful inheritance8 I have set the LORD always before me. Because he is at my right hand, I will not be shaken.  9 Therefore my heart is glad and my tongue rejoices; my body also will rest secure10 because you will not abandon me to the grave, nor will you let your Holy One see decay.  11 You have made known to me the path of life; you will fill me with joy in your presence, with eternal pleasures at your right hand. (Psalm 16:1-11 NIV)

On this mountain he will destroy the shroud that enfolds all peoples, the sheet that covers all nations;  8 he will swallow up death forever. The Sovereign LORD will wipe away the tears from all faces; he will remove the disgrace of his people from all the earth… 9 In that day they will say, “Surely this is our God; we trusted in him, and he saved us. This is the LORD, we trusted in him; let us rejoice and be glad in his salvation.” (Isaiah 25:7-9 NIV)

As a woman with child and about to give birth writhes and cries out in her pain, so were we in your presence, O LORD.  18 We were with child, we writhed in pain, but we gave birth to wind. We have not brought salvation to the earth; we have not given birth to people of the world.  19 But your dead will live; their bodies will rise. You who dwell in the dust, wake up and shout for joy. Your dew is like the dew of the morning; the earth will give birth to her dead. (Isaiah 26:17-19 NIV)

Strengthen the feeble hands, steady the knees that give way;  4 say to those with fearful hearts, “Be strong, do not fear; your God will come, he will come with vengeance; with divine retribution he will come to save you.”  5 Then the eyes of the blind shall be opened, and the ears of the deaf unstopped;  6 then shall the lame man leap like a deer, and the tongue of the mute sing for joy… 8 And a highway will be there; it will be called the Way of Holiness. The unclean will not journey on it… 9 But only the redeemed will walk there,  10 and the ransomed of the LORD will return. They will enter Zion with singing; everlasting joy will crown their heads. Gladness and joy will overtake them, and sorrow and sighing will flee away. (Isaiah 35:3-10 NIV)

Come, all you who are thirsty, come to the waters; and you who have no money, come, buy and eat! … 3 Give ear and come to me; hear me, that your soul may live. I will make an everlasting covenant with you, my faithful love promised to David… 10 As the rain and the snow come down from heaven, and do not return to it without watering the earth and making it bud and flourish11 so is my word that goes out from my mouth: It will not return to me empty, but will accomplish what I desire and achieve the purpose for which I sent it.  12 You will go out in joy and be led forth in peace; the mountains and hills will burst into song before you, and all the trees of the field will clap their hands… 13 This will be for the LORD’s renown, for an everlasting sign, which will not be destroyed. (Isaiah 55:1-13 NIV)

The Spirit of the Sovereign LORD is on me, because the LORD has anointed me to preach good news to the poor… 2 to proclaim the year of the LORD’s favor and the day of vengeance of our God, to comfort all who mourn… 6 And you will be called priests of the LORD, you will be named ministers of our God… 7 Instead of their shame my people will receive a double portion, and instead of disgrace they will rejoice in their inheritance; and so they will inherit a double portion in their land, and everlasting joy will be theirs8 For I, the LORD, love justice; I hate robbery and iniquity. In my faithfulness I will reward them and make an everlasting covenant with them. (Isaiah 61:1-8 NIV)

Behold, I will create new heavens and a new earth. The former things will not be remembered, nor will they come to mind.  18 But be glad and rejoice forever in what I will create, for I will create Jerusalem to be a delight and its people a joy19 I will rejoice over Jerusalem and take delight in my people; the sound of weeping and of crying will be heard in it no more. (Isaiah 65:17-19 NIV)

  1. New Testament Continuance of Resurrection Hope
    1. Perseverance and Rejoicing in the Resurrection

Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! In his great mercy he has given us new birth into a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead,  4 and into an inheritance that can never perish, spoil or fade— kept in heaven for you,  5 who through faith are shielded by God’s power until the coming of the salvation that is ready to be revealed in the last time.  6 In this you greatly rejoice, though now for a little while you may have had to suffer grief in all kinds of trials… 8 Though you have not seen him, you love him; and even though you do not see him now, you believe in him and are filled with an inexpressible and glorious joy9 for you are receiving the goal of your faith, the salvation of your souls. (1 Peter 1:3-9 NIV)

Dear friends, do not be surprised at the painful trial you are suffering, as though something strange were happening to you.  13 But rejoice that you participate in the sufferings of Christ, so that you may be overjoyed when his glory is revealed14 If you are insulted because of the name of Christ, you are blessed, for the Spirit of glory and of God rests on you. (1 Peter 4:12-14 NIV)

But our citizenship is in heaven. And we eagerly await a Savior from there, the Lord Jesus Christ,  21 who, by the power that enables him to bring everything under his control, will transform our lowly bodies so that they will be like his glorious body4:1 Therefore, my brothers, you whom I love and long for, my joy and crown, that is how you should stand firm in the Lord, dear friends… 3 whose names are in the book of life4 Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice!  5 Let your gentleness be evident to all. The Lord is near. (Philippians 3:20-4:5 NIV)

Therefore, since we have been justified through faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ,  2 through whom we have gained access by faith into this grace in which we now stand. And we rejoice in the hope of the glory of God3 Not only so, but we also rejoice in our sufferings, because we know that suffering produces perseverance;  4 perseverance, character; and character, hope. (Romans 5:1-4 NIV)

Now I rejoice in what was suffered for you, and I fill up in my flesh what is still lacking in regard to Christ’s afflictions, for the sake of his body, which is the church… 27 To them God has chosen to make known among the Gentiles the glorious riches of this mystery, which is Christ in you, the hope of glory28 We proclaim him, admonishing and teaching everyone with all wisdom, so that we may present everyone perfect in Christ. (Colossians 1:24-28 NIV)

Consider it pure joy, my brothers, whenever you face trials of many kinds,  3 because you know that the testing of your faith develops perseverance… 12 Blessed is the man who perseveres under trial, because when he has stood the test, he will receive the crown of life that God has promised to those who love him. (James 1:2-12 NIV)

Let us fix our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy set before him endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.  3 Consider him who endured such opposition from sinful men, so that you will not grow weary and lose heart. (Hebrews 12:2-3 NIV)

  1. The Resurrection as the Anchor of Faith

…that is, the word of faith we are proclaiming:  9 That if you confess with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved… 12 For there is no difference between Jew and Gentile– the same Lord is Lord of all and richly blesses all who call on him,  13 for, “Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.” (cf. Joel 2:32) (Romans 10:8-13 NIV)

If then you have been raised with Christ, seek the things that are above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God.  2 Set your minds on things that are above, not on things that are on earth.  3 For you have died, and your life is hidden with Christ in God.  4 When Christ who is your life appears, then you also will appear with him in glory. (Colossians 3:1-4)

For the trumpet will sound, the dead will be raised imperishable, and we will be changed.  53 For the perishable must clothe itself with the imperishable, and the mortal with immortality.  54 When the perishable has been clothed with the imperishable, and the mortal with immortality, then the saying that is written will come true: “Death has been swallowed up in victory.” (cf. Is. 25:8) (1 Corinthians 15:52-54 NIV)

We believe that Jesus died and rose again and so we believe that God will bring with Jesus those who have fallen asleep in him16 For the Lord himself will come down from heaven, with a loud command, with the voice of the archangel and with the trumpet call of God, and the dead in Christ will rise first17 After that, we who are still alive and are left will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And so we will be with the Lord forever. (1 Thessalonians 4:14-17 NIV)

  1. Jesus as the Firstborn of the Resurrection

I am saying nothing beyond what the prophets and Moses said would happen–  23 that the Christ would suffer and, as the first to rise from the dead, would proclaim light to his own people and to the Gentiles. (Acts 26:22-23 NIV)

But Christ has indeed been raised from the dead, the firstfruits of those who have fallen asleep… 22 For as in Adam all die, so in Christ all will be made alive.  23 But each in his own turn: Christ, the firstfruits; then, when he comes, those who belong to him. (1 Corinthians 15:20-23 NIV)

Grace and peace to you from him who is, and who was, and who is to come, and from the seven spirits before his throne,  5 and from Jesus Christ, who is the faithful witness, the firstborn from the dead, and the ruler of the kings of the earth. (Revelation 1:4-5 NIV)

THE HOLY SPIRIT AND THE RESURRECTION

THE HOLY SPIRIT AND THE RESURRECTION

  1. Miracles as Signs of the Resurrection

This salvation, which was first announced by the Lord, was confirmed to us by those who heard him.  4 God also testified to it by signs, wonders and various miracles, and gifts of the Holy Spirit distributed according to his will.  5 It is not to angels that he has subjected the world to come, about which we are speaking… (Hebrews 2:3-8 NIV)

It is impossible for those who have once been enlightened, who have tasted the heavenly gift, who have shared in the Holy Spirit5 who have tasted the goodness of the word of God and the powers of the coming age6 if they fall away, to be brought back to repentance… (Hebrews 6:4-6 NIV)

  • And he said to them, “Go into all the world and proclaim the gospel to the whole creation.  16 Whoever believes and is baptized will be saved, but whoever does not believe will be condemned.  17 And these signs will accompany those who believe: in my name they will cast out demons; they will speak in new tongues;  18 they will pick up serpents with their hands; and if they drink any deadly poison, it will not hurt them; they will lay their hands on the sick, and they will recover.” … 20 And they went out and preached everywhere, while the Lord worked with them and confirmed the message by accompanying signs. (Mark 16:15-20)
  • Now when John in prison heard of the works of Christ, he sent word by his disciples,  3 and said to Him, “Are You the Expected One, or shall we look for someone else?”  4 And Jesus answered and said to them, “Go and report to John what you hear and see5 the blind receive sight and the lame walk, the lepers are cleansed and the deaf hear, and the dead are raised up, and the poor have the gospel preached to them.” (Matthew 11:2-6 NASB)
  • Then they brought him a demon-possessed man who was blind and mute, and Jesus healed him, so that he could both talk and see.  23 All the people were astonished and said, “Could this be the Son of David?” (Matthew 12:22-23 NIV)
  • So they gathered them up and filled twelve baskets with fragments from the five barley loaves, left by those who had eaten.  14 When the people saw the sign that he had done, they said, “This is indeed the Prophet who is to come into the world!” (John 6:13-14)
  • When I came to you, brothers, I did not come with eloquence or superior wisdom as I proclaimed to you the testimony about God4 My message and my preaching were not with wise and persuasive words, but with a demonstration of the Spirit’s power5 so that your faith might not rest on men’s wisdom, but on God’s power. (1 Corinthians 2:1-5 NIV)
  • We did not follow cleverly invented stories when we told you about the power and coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, but we were eyewitnesses of his majesty… 18 We ourselves heard this voice that came from heaven when we were with him on the sacred mountain.  19 And we have the word of the prophets made more certain, and you will do well to pay attention to it, as to a light shining in a dark place, until the day dawns… (2 Pe. 1:16-19 NIV)
  1. The Holy Spirit as the Deposit of the Resurrection

If the Spirit of him who raised Jesus from the dead dwells in you, he who raised Christ Jesus from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies through his Spirit who dwells in you… 16 The Spirit himself bears witness with our spirit that we are children of God,  17 and if children, then heirs- heirs of God and fellow heirs with Christ19 For the creation waits with eager longing for the revealing of the sons of God… 23 And not only the creation, but we ourselves, who have the firstfruits of the Spirit, groan inwardly as we wait eagerly for adoption as sons, the redemption of our bodies24 For in this hope we were saved. (Romans 8:11-24)

In him you also, when you heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation, and believed in him, were sealed with the promised Holy Spirit,  14 who is the guarantee of our inheritance until we acquire possession of it, to the praise of his glory. (Ephesians 1:11-14)

For we know that if our earthly house, this tent, is destroyed, we have a building from God, a house not made with hands, eternal in the heavens… 4 For we who are in this tent groan, being burdened, not because we want to be unclothed, but further clothed, that mortality may be swallowed up by life.  5 Now He who has prepared us for this very thing is God, who also has given us the Spirit as a guarantee. (2 Corinthians 5:1-5 NKJV)

For no matter how many promises God has made, they are “Yes” in Christ. And so through him the “Amen” is spoken by us to the glory of God.  21 Now it is God who makes both us and you stand firm in Christ. He anointed us,  22 set his seal of ownership on us, and put his Spirit in our hearts as a deposit, guaranteeing what is to come. (2 Corinthians 1:20-22 NIV)

  1. The Holy Spirit Testifies to Christ Crucified

He commanded us to preach to the people and to testify that he is the one whom God appointed as judge of the living and the dead.  43 All the prophets testify about him that everyone who believes in him receives forgiveness of sins through his name.”  44 While Peter was still speaking these words, the Holy Spirit came on all who heard the message. (Acts 10:42-44 NIV)

At Iconium Paul and Barnabas went as usual into the Jewish synagogue. There they spoke so effectively that a great number of Jews and Gentiles believed… 3 So Paul and Barnabas spent considerable time there, speaking boldly for the Lord, who confirmed the message of his grace by enabling them to do miraculous signs and wonders. (Acts 14:1-3 NIV)

For Christ did not send me to baptize, but to preach the gospel– not with words of human wisdom, lest the cross of Christ be emptied of its power18 For the message of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God2:2 For I resolved to know nothing while I was with you except Jesus Christ and him crucified3 I came to you in weakness and fear, and with much trembling.  4 My message and my preaching were not with wise and persuasive words, but with a demonstration of the Spirit’s power5 so that your faith might not rest on men’s wisdom, but on God’s power. (1 Corinthians 1:17-2:5 NIV)

In love he predestined us to be adopted as his sons through Jesus Christ, in accordance with his pleasure and will–  6 to the praise of his glorious grace, which he has freely given us in the One he loves.  7 In him we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, in accordance with the riches of God’s grace  8 that he lavished on us with all wisdom and understanding.  9 And he made known to us the mystery of his will… (Ephesians 1:5-9 NIV)

  1. The Holy Spirit Leads Believers to Crucifixion

Remember the words I spoke to you: ‘No servant is greater than his master.’ If they persecuted me, they will persecute you also25 But this is to fulfill what is written in their Law: ‘They hated me without reason.’  26 When the Counselor comes, whom I will send to you from the Father, the Spirit of truth who goes out from the Father, he will testify about me27 And you also must testify, for you have been with me from the beginning. 16:1 All this I have told you so that you will not go astray.  2 They will put you out of the synagogue… (John 15:20-16:2 NIV)

I only know that in every city the Holy Spirit warns me that prison and hardships are facing me24 However, I consider my life worth nothing to me, if only I may finish the race and complete the task the Lord Jesus has given me– the task of testifying to the gospel of God’s grace. (Acts 20:23-24 NIV)

The Gospel of the Christ

INTRODUCTION: THE GREEK IMMATERIAL CHRIST

INTRODUCTION: THE GREEK IMMATERIAL CHRIST

The god of this age has blinded the minds of unbelievers, so that they cannot see the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God. (2 Corinthians 4:4 NIV)

  1. The Gnostic Christ

This is how you can recognize the Spirit of God: Every spirit that acknowledges that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is from God,  3 but every spirit that does not acknowledge Jesus is not from God. This is the spirit of the antichrist, which you have heard is coming and even now is already in the world. (1 John 4:2-3 NIV)

  1. Christ as Proper Name

Who is the liar? It is the man who denies that Jesus is the Christ. Such a man is the antichrist— he denies the Father and the Son… 24 See that what you have heard from the beginning remains in you. If it does, you also will remain in the Son and in the Father.  25 And this is what he promised us– even eternal life. (1 John 2:22-25 NIV)

BIBLICAL SURVEY OF MESSIANIC HOPE

BIBLICAL SURVEY OF MESSIANIC HOPE

  1. The Genesis of Messianic Hope

So the LORD God said to the serpent… 15 “I will put enmity between you and the woman, and between your seed and her Seed (Hb. zera, nMSC); He shall bruise your head, and you shall bruise His heel.” … 17 Then to Adam He said… 19 “In the sweat of your face you shall eat bread till you return to the ground, for out of it you were taken; for dust you are, and to dust you shall return.” (Genesis 3:14-19 NKJV)

  • And Adam knew his wife again, and she bore a son (Hb. ben) and named him Seth (Hb. sheth; “Appointed”), “for God has appointed (Hb. shith) another seed (Hb. zera, nMSA) for me instead of Abel, whom Cain killed.”  26 And as for Seth, to him also a son was born; and he named him Enosh. Then (“At that time” NIV) men began to call on the name of the LORD (i.e. in hopes of the Seed). (Genesis 4:25-26 NKJV)
  • Enoch, the seventh from Adam, prophesied about these men: “See, the Lord is coming with thousands upon thousands of his holy ones  15 to judge everyone, and to convict all the ungodly of all the ungodly acts they have done in the ungodly way, and of all the harsh words ungodly sinners have spoken against him.” (cf. Book of Enoch 1:9) (Jude 1:14-15 NIV)
  • When I look at your heavens, the work of your fingers, the moon and the stars, which you have set in place,  4 what is man (Hb. adam) that you are mindful of him, and the son of man (Hb. ben-adam) that you care for him?  5 Yet you have made him (i.e. Adam, et al.) a little lower than the heavenly beings and crowned him with glory and honor.  6 You have given him (i.e. Adam, et al.) dominion over the works of your hands; you have put all things under his feet… (Psalm 8:3-6)
  • For since death came through a man, the resurrection of the dead comes also through a man.  22 For as in Adam all die, so in Christ all will be made alive.  23 But each in his own turn: Christ, the firstfruits; then, when he comes, those who belong to him.  24 Then the end will come, when he hands over the kingdom to God the Father after he has destroyed all dominion, authority and power.  25 For he must reign until he has put all his enemies under his feet26 The last enemy to be destroyed is death.  27 For he “has put everything under his feet.” (cf. Ps. 8:6) … (1 Corinthians 15:21-27 NIV)
  • And he made known to us the mystery of his will according to his good pleasure, which he purposed in Christ,  10 to be put into effect (Gk. oikonomia: Gk. oikos “house” + Gk. nomos “law”) when the times will have reached their fulfillment– to bring all things in heaven and on earth together under one head (Gk. anakephalaiomai, Gk. ana “again” + Gk. kephalaioo “bring under headings”), even Christ. (Ephesians 1:9-10 NIV)

…that in the fullness (tou/ plhrw,matoj, nGNS) of the times (tw/n kairw/n, nGMP) of the household administration (oivkonomi,an, nAFS), all things (ta. pa,nta, aANP) in the heavens (evpi. toi/j ouvranoi/j, nDMP) and on the earth (evpi. th/j gh/j, nGFS) would again be brought together under headship (avnakefalaiw,sasqai, vAMInf) in the Messiah (evn tw/| Cristw/|, nDMS).” (Ephesians 1:10)

  1. The Abrahamic Messianic Hope

As for me, behold, my covenant is with thee, and thou shalt be a father of many nations.  5 Neither shall thy name any more be called Abram, but thy name shall be Abraham; for a father of many nations have I made thee6 And I will make thee exceeding fruitful, and I will make nations of thee, and kings shall come out of thee7 And I will establish my covenant between me and thee and thy seed (Hb. zera, nMSC) after thee in their generations for an everlasting covenant, to be a God unto thee, and to thy seed after thee. (Genesis 17:4-7 KJV)

  • The promises were spoken to Abraham and to his seed. The Scripture does not say (i.e. interpretation/translation) “and to seeds,” meaning many people (cf. translation: “descendants” or “offspring”), but “and to your seed,” meaning one person (cf. translation: “seed”), who is Christ. (Galatians 3:16 NIV)
  • It was not through law that Abraham and his offspring received the promise that he would be heir of the world, but through the righteousness that comes by faith… 16 Therefore, the promise comes by faith, so that it may be by grace and may be guaranteed to all Abraham’s offspring… He is the father of us all.  17 As it is written: “I have made you a father of many nations.” (cf. Gen. 17:5)  He is our father in the sight of God, in whom he believed– the God who gives life to the dead and calls things that are not as though they were. (Romans 4:13-17 NIV)
  • He must remain in heaven until the time comes for God to restore everything, as he promised long ago through his holy prophets… 25 And you are heirs of the prophets and of the covenant God made with your fathers. He said to Abraham, ‘Through your offspring all peoples on earth will be blessed.’  26 When God raised up his servant, he sent him first to you to bless you by turning each of you from your wicked ways.” (Acts 3:21-26 NIV)
  1. The Davidic Messianic Hope

And it shall be, when your days are fulfilled, when you must go to be with your fathers, that I will set up your seed (Hb. zera, nMSC) after you, who will be of your sons; and I will establish his kingdom.  12 He shall build Me a house, and I will establish his throne forever13 I will be his Father, and he shall be My son; and I will not take My mercy away from him, as I took it from him who was before you.  14 And I will establish him in My house and in My kingdom forever; and his throne shall be established forever. (1 Chronicles 17:11-14 NKJV)

  • The kings of the earth take their stand and the rulers gather together against the LORD and against his Anointed One (Hb. mashiyach)… 5 Then he rebukes them in his anger and terrifies them in his wrath, saying,  6I have installed my King on Zion, my holy hill.”  7 I will proclaim the decree of the LORD: He said to me, “You are my Son; today I have become your Father8 Ask of me, and I will make the nations your inheritance, the ends of the earth your possession.” (Psalm 2:2-9 NIV)
  • I have made a covenant with My chosen, I have sworn to My servant David:  4Your seed I will establish forever, and build up your throne to all generations.” … 24 My faithfulness and My mercy shall be with him, and in My name his horn shall be exalted25 Also I will set his hand over the sea, And his right hand over the rivers.  26 He shall cry to Me, “You are my Father, My God, and the rock of my salvation.”  27 Also I will make him My firstborn, the highest of the kings of the earth. (Psalm 89:3-27 NKJV)
  • The LORD (Hb. YHVH) says to my Lord (Hb. adonay): “Sit at my right hand until I make your enemies a footstoolfor your feet.”  2 The LORD (Hb. YHVH) will extend your (cf. adonay) mighty scepter from Zion; you (cf. adonay) will rule in the midst of your enemies… 5 The Lord (Hb. adonay) is at your (cf. YHVH) right hand; he (cf. adonay) will crush kings on the day of his wrath6 He (cf. adonay) will judge the nations, heaping up the dead and crushing the rulers (Hb. rosh; “heads” KJV/NKJV/NRSV/NLT) of the whole earth. (Psalm 110:1-6 NIV)
  • For to us a child is born, to us a son (Hb. ben) is given; and the government shall be upon his shoulder, and his name shall be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.  7 Of the increase of his government and of peace there will be no end, on the throne of David and over his kingdom, to establish it and to uphold it with justice and with righteousness from this time forth and forevermore. (Isaiah 9:6-7)
  • A shoot will come up from the stump of Jesse; from his roots a Branch will bear fruit.  2 The Spirit of the LORD will rest on him… 4 He will strike the earth with the rod of his mouth; with the breath of his lips he will slay the wicked5 Righteousness will be his belt and faithfulness the sash around his waist… 10 In that day the Root of Jesse will stand as a banner for the peoples; the nations will rally to him, and his place of rest will be glorious. (Isaiah 11:1-10 NIV)
  • Rejoice greatly, O Daughter of Zion! Shout, Daughter of Jerusalem! See, your king comes to you, righteous and having salvation, gentle and riding on a donkey, on a colt, the foal of a donkey… 10 He will proclaim peace to the nations. His rule will extend from sea to sea and from the River to the ends of the earth. (Zechariah 9:9-10 NIV)
  1. Christ: The Arm of the Lord

Even after Jesus had done all these miraculous signs in their presence, they still would not believe in him.  38 This was to fulfill the word of Isaiah the prophet: “Lord, who has believed our message and to whom has the arm of the Lord been revealed?” … 44 Then Jesus cried out, “When a man believes in me, he does not believe in me only, but in the one who sent me.  45 When he looks at me, he sees the one who sent me. (John 12:37-45 NIV)

How beautiful on the mountains are the feet of those who bring good news, who proclaim peace, who bring good tidings, who proclaim salvation, who say to Zion, “Your God reigns!” … 9 Burst into songs of joy together, you ruins of Jerusalem, for the LORD has comforted his people, he has redeemed Jerusalem.  10 The LORD will lay bare his holy arm in the sight of all the nations, and all the ends of the earth will see the salvation of our God… 13 See, my servant will act wisely; he will be raised and lifted up and highly exalted… 15 so will he sprinkle many nations, and kings will shut their mouths because of him. For what they were not told, they will see, and what they have not heard, they will understand. 53:1 Who has believed our message and to whom has the arm of the LORD been revealed2 He grew up before him like a tender shoot, and like a root out of dry ground. He had no beauty or majesty to attract us to him, nothing in his appearance that we should desire him. (Isaiah 52:7-53:2 NIV)

  • The LORD will cause men to hear his majestic voice and will make them see his arm coming down with raging anger and consuming fire, with cloudburst, thunderstorm and hail… 32 Every stroke the LORD lays on them with his punishing rod will be to the music of tambourines and harps, as he fights them in battle with the blows of his arm33 Topheth (i.e. Valley of Ben Hinnom, cf. 2 Ki. 23:10; Jer. 7:31f; 19:6) has long been prepared; it has been made ready for the king. Its fire pit has been made deep and wide, with an abundance of fire and wood; the breath of the LORD, like a stream of burning sulfur, sets it ablaze. (NIV Isaiah 30:30-33)
  • You who bring good tidings to Zion, go up on a high mountain. You who bring good tidings to Jerusalem, lift up your voice with a shout, lift it up, do not be afraid; say to the towns of Judah, “Here is your God!”  10 See, the Sovereign LORD comes with power, and his arm rules for him. See, his reward is with him, and his recompense accompanies him. (Isaiah 40:9-10 NIV)

messianic-seed

I tell you the truth, the Son can do nothing by himself; he can do only what he sees his Father doing, because whatever the Father does the Son also does… 21 For just as the Father raises the dead and gives them life, even so the Son gives life to whom he is pleased to give it.  22 Moreover, the Father judges no one, but has entrusted all judgment to the Son23 that all may honor the Son just as they honor the Father… 28 Do not be amazed at this, for a time is coming when all who are in their graves will hear his voice  29 and come out– those who have done good will rise to live, and those who have done evil will rise to be condemned. (John 5:19-29 NIV)

  • See, the LORD is coming with fire, and his chariots are like a whirlwind; he will bring down his anger with fury, and his rebuke with flames of fire.  16 For with fire and with his sword the LORD will execute judgment upon all men, and many will be those slain by the LORD. (Isaiah 66:15-16 NIV)
  • The great day of the LORD is near– near and coming quickly… 15 That day will be a day of wrath, a day of distress and anguish, a day of trouble and ruin, a day of darkness and gloom… 18 In the fire of his jealousy the whole world will be consumed, for he will make a sudden end of all who live in the earth. (Zephaniah 1:14-18 NIV)
  • For behold, the day is coming, burning like an oven, when all the arrogant and all evildoers will be stubble. The day that is coming shall set them ablaze, says the LORD of hosts, so that it will leave them neither root nor branch. (Malachi 4:1)
  • He commanded us to preach to the people and to testify that he is the one whom God appointed as judge of the living and the dead43 All the prophets testify about him that everyone who believes in him receives forgiveness of sins through his name.” (Acts 10:34-43 NIV)

In the past God overlooked such ignorance, but now he commands all people everywhere to repent.  31 For he has set a day when he will judge the world with justice by the man he has appointed. He has given proof of this to all men by raising him from the dead. (Acts 17:29-31 NIV)

CHRIST CRUCIFIED

CHRIST CRUCIFIED

  1. The Suffering Before the Glory

How foolish you are, and how slow of heart to believe all that the prophets have spoken!  26 Did not the Christ have to suffer these things and then enter his glory?”  27 And beginning with Moses and all the Prophets, he explained to them what was said in all the Scriptures concerning himself. (Luke 24:25-27 NIV)

This man was handed over to you by God’s set purpose and foreknowledge; and you, with the help of wicked men, put him to death by nailing him to the cross24 But God raised him from the dead… 33 Exalted to the right hand of God, he has received from the Father the promised Holy Spirit and has poured out what you now see and hear.  34 For David did not ascend to heaven, and yet he said, “The Lord said to my Lord: ‘Sit at my right hand  35 until I make your enemies a footstool for your feet.'” (Acts 2:23-36 NIV)

And now, brothers, I know that you acted in ignorance, as did also your rulers.  18 But what God foretold by the mouth of all the prophets, that his Christ would suffer, he thus fulfilled.  19 Repent therefore, and turn again, that your sins may be blotted out,  20 that times of refreshing may come from the presence of the Lord, and that he may send the Christ appointed for you, Jesus,  21 whom heaven must receive until the time for restoring all the things about which God spoke by the mouth of his holy prophets long ago. (Acts 3:17-21)

As his custom was, Paul went into the synagogue, and on three Sabbath days he reasoned with them from the Scriptures,  3 explaining and proving that the Christ had to suffer and rise from the dead. “This Jesus I am proclaiming to you is the Christ,” he said.  4 Some of the Jews were persuaded and joined Paul and Silas… (Acts 17:2-4 NIV)

But now he has appeared once for all at the end of the ages to do away with sin by the sacrifice of himself.  27 Just as man is destined to die once, and after that to face judgment,  28 so Christ was sacrificed once to take away the sins of many people; and he will appear a second time, not to bear sin, but to bring salvation to those who are waiting for him. (Hebrews 9:26-28 NIV)

Concerning this salvation, the prophets, who spoke of the grace that was to come to you, searched intently and with the greatest care,  11 trying to find out the time and circumstances to which the Spirit of Christ in them was pointing when he predicted the sufferings of Christ and the glories that would follow13 Therefore, prepare your minds for action; be self-controlled; set your hope fully on the grace to be given you when Jesus Christ is revealed. (1 Peter 1:10-13 NIV)

  1. The Crucified Heir

The greatest among you should be like the youngest, and the one who rules like the one who serves… 27 I am among you as one who serves28 You are those who have stood by me in my trials.  29 And I confer on you a kingdom, just as my Father conferred one on me30 so that you may eat and drink at my table in my kingdom and sit on thrones, judging the twelve tribes of Israel. (Luke 22:26-30 NIV)

Your attitude should be the same as that of Christ Jesus:  6 Who, being in very nature God, did not consider equality with God something to be grasped… 8 And being found in appearance as a man, he humbled himself and became obedient to death— even death on a cross!  9 Therefore God exalted him to the highest place and gave him the name that is above every name,  10 that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth,  11 and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father. (Philippians 2:5-11 NRSV)

  1. The Crucified Co-heirs

He asked. “Who do you say I am?”  16 Simon Peter answered, “You are the Christ, the Son of the living God.”  17 Jesus replied, “Blessed are you, Simon son of Jonah…” 20 Then he warned his disciples not to tell anyone that he was the Christ21 From that time on Jesus began to explain to his disciples that he must go to Jerusalem and suffer many things at the hands of the elders, chief priests and teachers of the law, and that he must be killed and on the third day be raised to life.  22 Peter took him aside and began to rebuke him. “Never, Lord!” he said. “This shall never happen to you!”  23 Jesus turned and said to Peter, “Get behind me, Satan! You are a stumbling block to me; you do not have in mind the things of God, but the things of men.”  24 Then Jesus said to his disciples, “If anyone would come after me, he must deny himself and take up his cross and follow me25 For whoever wants to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for me will find it.  26 What good will it be for a man if he gains the whole world, yet forfeits his soul? Or what can a man give in exchange for his soul?  27 For the Son of Man is going to come in his Father’s glory with his angels, and then he will reward each person according to what he has done. (Matthew 16:15-27 NIV)

Jesus replied, “The hour has come for the Son of Man to be glorified.  24 I tell you the truth, unless a kernel of wheat falls to the ground and dies, it remains only a single seed. But if it dies, it produces many seeds25 The man who loves his life will lose it, while the man who hates his life in this world will keep it for eternal life.  26 Whoever serves me must follow me; and where I am, my servant also will be. My Father will honor the one who serves me.” (John 12:23-26 NIV)

Only let your manner of life be worthy of the gospel of Christ, so that whether I come and see you or am absent, I may hear of you that you are standing firm in one spirit, with one mind striving side by side for the faith of the gospel,  28 and not frightened in anything by your opponents. This is a clear sign to them of their destruction, but of your salvation, and that from God.  29 For it has been granted to you that for the sake of Christ you should not only believe in him but also suffer for his sake30 engaged in the same conflict that you saw I had and now hear that I still have. (Philippians 1:27-30)

Or don’t you know that all of us who were baptized into Christ Jesus were baptized into his death? … 5 If we have been united with him like this in his death, we will certainly also be united with him in his resurrection. (Romans 6:3-5 NIV)

The Spirit himself bears witness with our spirit that we are children of God,  17 and if children, then heirs- heirs of God and fellow heirs with Christ, provided we suffer with him in order that we may also be glorified with him18 For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worth comparing with the glory that is to be revealed to us. (Romans 8:16-18)

I count everything as loss because of the surpassing worth of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord. For his sake I have suffered the loss of all things and count them as rubbish, in order that I may gain Christ  9 and be found in him, not having a righteousness of my own that comes from the law, but that which comes through faith in Christ, the righteousness from God that depends on faith-  10 that I may know him and the power of his resurrection, and may share his sufferings, becoming like him in his death11 that by any means possible I may attain the resurrection from the dead. (Philippians 3:8-11)
