1 Corinthians 15:50-58. For those who are in Christ, by faith, what remains for us at death is expressed by Paul in two ways: 2 Cor 5:8, “Away from the body and at home with the Lord.” And Philippians 1:21, “to die is gain.”
1 Corinthians 15:35-49. Jesus’ resurrection brings the promise of restoration, healing, and completion of whatever was lacking in us physically.
The bodily resurrection of Jesus is central to Christian orthodoxy. If it wasn’t for His being raised from the dead, our faith is futile and we are still in our sins. Because of Jesus being raised, our sin is put to death and we have new life in Him.
1 Peter 1:18-19. Jesus appeased the wrath of God towards sin by His death on the cross. This act was the fullfilment of the Day of Atonement sacrifice given by God in Leviticus 16.
Lev 16:20-22; 30 Throughout scripture, some dozen words are used to speak of sin frequently in terms of staining our soul, defiling us, and causing us to be unclean. Jesus takes all of these sins far away from us.
1 Corinthians 16. Skipping forward to chapter 16 of 1 Corinthians, we see Paul’s closing comments to the church in Corinth. He gives some basic principles for giving and finishes the letter with the cause of the gospel which is to be proclaimed to those that are unbelievers.
Nehemiah 8:13-18. The people of Jerusalem observe the Day of Atonement and the Feast of Booths. It is these reminders in Israel’s history of God’s love and forgiveness that show us that we need Jesus, not religion.
Matthew 28:18-20. Baptism is a core doctrine and ordinance ordained by Jesus for Christians
1 Timothy 3. Titus 2. Elders are the men that are put into a position of leadership and servanthood. Their primary responsibilities are preaching, overseeing the affairs of the church and administrating church discipline
