Bible Alive: Jesus Christ Class Eleven: The Mystery of Christ in the Apostolic Church

The following presentation would be impossible without these resources

And most of all… By Father Roch A. Kereszty o. cist. Thank you Father Roch!

Setting the Tone Do everything as if He were dwelling in us. Thus we shall be His temples and He will be within us as our God—as He actually is. —St. Ignatius of Antioch



Setting the Tone The first reaction to truth is hatred. —Tertullian



Setting the Tone O Mystery! God's lost Himself, and therefore He, To find Himself again, would be new-born in Me. —Angelus Silesius



Let us Pray O Lord, show Your mercy to me and gladden my heart. I am like the man on the way to Jericho who was overtaken by robbers, wounded and left for dead. O Good Samaritan, come to my aid. I am like the sheep that went astray. O Good Shepherd, seek me out and bring me home in accord with Your will. Let me dwell in Your house all the days of my life and praise You for ever and ever with those who are there. Amen.

Summarizing Last Class We learned why Jesus did not explicitly state that he was God the Son and what that meant. We learned about the battle between exegetes and systematic theology. We saw the difference between explicit and implicit Christologies. We learned why each of the Gospels center on the identity of Jesus and answers “Who is this man?” in its own way. We saw how the transcendent identity of Jesus is revealed primarily in the way he speaks and acts in his Father’s stead and in the way he relates to his Father.

The Greatest Stumbling Block Deut 21:23—for a hanged man is accursed by God; you shall not defile your land which the LORD your God gives you for an inheritance. Jesus’ death was shameful—it was a scandal. It suggested his mission was an utter failure. One executed on a tree is accursed by God. He cannot be the Messiah

The GIFT Kereszty explains that only the appearances of the risen One could have convinced the disciples that this horrible death had to be the way to the resurrection and exaltation of their Master. They begin to understand the Scriptures by then receiving the Spirit of Christ and Christ himself in the Spirit. It is then they discover that Christ’s death and resurrection happened “according to the Scriptures.”

The Scandal of the Church Didanyone expect the Messiah to suffer and die? The earliest kerygma sees that the whole of the Old Testament, not merely a collection of proof texts, announces that Jesus is the Messiah. What happened had to happen—it was to fulfill God’s plan.They began to identify the patternor “types” of Jesus and his saving work in the major figures and events of the Old Testament.All the Old Testament promises find their fulfillment in Jesus. But then an even more startling discovery came—the Messiah Jesus is the Lord in the same way that Yahweh is Lord of his people and the universe!
