The Christ Who Came

  • MatthewThe One Who Fulfills
  • Mark:  The Suffering Servant
    • 3 things about Jesus, Mark 8:27-38
      1. Who He was: The suffering servant and Son of Man (Daniel 7:13-14)
      2. What He came to do: Go to a cross
      3. What He requires of us: A willingness to die to self and follow.  Galatians 2:19-20
  • Luke:  The Savior of All 
    • Luke 2:30-32
    • Salvation in Luke’s gospel focuses on 2 things
      1. Forgiveness of sin (our past)
      2. New life through the Spirit (present and future)
  • John:  The Incarnate WordJohn 1:14
    • He became man and dwelt among us.
    • The emphasis is on signs and their purpose of teaching.
    • In Christ 7 things linked to 7 miracles.
      1. Christ ushers in a new beginning: water into wine.
      2. Christ has the power to give life: the official’s son
      3. Christ has the power to judge: the lame man.
      4. Christ can satisfy what we are really hungering and thirsting for if we would let him:  Feeding the 5000.
      5. Christ has the authority over creation:  Christ walking on the water.
      6. Christ lights our way as the light of the world: Healing the blind.
      7. Christ is the resurrection and the life:  Resurrection of Lazarus.

Conclusion:  What do you believe about Christ?

A three-fold test –

3 liars:

  1. Whoever denies that Jesus is the Eternal Christ that came in the flesh is a liar. 1 John 2:22
  2. Whoever claims to have fellowship with God and walks in darkness is a liar. 1 John 1:6
  3. Whoever says he loves God but hates his brother is a liar.  1 John 4:20

So, do we believe all we see about Christ?
