Presentation Transcript

Slide 1: 

Jesus: Obedient Unto Death Christ’s death in Scriptures The Scriptures do not call Christ’s death a satisfaction but instead “his death becomes ransom (lutron), propitiation (ilasmos), and atonement (ilasterion) for our sins.” Cf. Mat 20:28; 1 Jn 4:10; and esp. Rom 3:21-27.

Christ’s death is closely related to three sacrifices in the Old Testament : 

Christ’s death is closely related to three sacrifices in the Old Testament The sacrifice of the Covenant (Ex 24:4-8). 2. The sacrifice of the Passover Lamb (Ex 12:1-14, 21-27, 46-47). 3. The sacrifice of the Day of Atonement (Lev 16:1-34).

 The Paschal Mystery is mankind’s liberation from slavery to sin through the Death of Christ and from subjection to death through His Resurrection.  Just as he Jewish Passover celebrated Israel’s liberation from slavery in Egypt, the Eucharist fulfills this mystery.

Jesus: Obedient Unto Death : 

Jesus: Obedient Unto Death Jesus freely chose to die  He had power to lay down His life and take it up again (Jn 10:18)  We must be careful not to blame the individuals (Judas, the Sanhedrin,) for their personal sin which is known to God alone or the Jew’s collectively for the passion and Crucifixion.

Jesus: Obedient Unto Death : 

Jesus: Obedient Unto Death “He went down with them then, and came to Nazareth, and was obedient to them” (Lk 2:51) - “Jesus, for his part, progressed steadily in wisdom and age and grace before God and men” (Lk 2:52) “Jesus’ violent death was not the result of chance in an unfortunate coincidence of circumstances, but is part of the mystery of God’s plan.” (CCC 599)

Slide 7: 

Jesus: Obedient Unto Death Fulfilled the Father’s will “Do not think that I have come to abolish the law and the prophets. I have come, not to abolish them, but to fulfill them” (Mt 5:17) Jesus’ obedience is not reduced to carrying out orders from others, but it is aimed at the fullness of freedom. “Your will be done on earth as it is in heaven (Mt 6:10) His obedience is a total submission and availability for doing the will of the Father (Lk 2:29) “I have food to eat of which you do not know… (Jn 6:38) -

Slide 8: 

Jesus: Obedient Unto Death Offered Himself to the Father  Ultimate sacrifice to God (“for the sins of the whole world” (1 Jn 2:2)  “From the first moment of his Incarnation the Son embraces the Father’s plan of divine salvation in his redemptive mission” (CCC 606)  Acting out of love “Jesus freely accepted his Passion and death” (CCC609)  “The death of Christ is the purpose of the Incarnation  In Jesus’ obedience, human salvation is at stake, as it was negatively in Adam’s disobedience (Rom 5:19)

Jesus: Obedient Unto Death :

Three Temptations of JESUS Turn Stones Into Bread Throw Yourself Off Pinnacle of Temple Worldly Kingdoms For Worshipping Satan Once

Slide 11: 

Key To Jesus Enduring Satan’s Temptations  “” For I have come down from heaven, not to do My own will, but the will of Him who sent Me” (Jn 6:38)  Jesus *said to them, "My food is to do the will of Him who sent Me and to accomplish His work” (Jn 4:34)

Slide 12: 

Points About Jesus’ Wilderness Temptations He was learning obedience by the things which He suffered Although He was a Son, He learned obedience from the things which He suffered (Heb 5:8) For since He Himself was tempted in that which He has suffered, He is able to come to the aid of those who are tempted (Heb 2:18)

What Jesus Enduring Temptations Means To Us : 

What Jesus Enduring Temptations Means To Us Through His perfect obedience, He became an obedient Son, perfect sacrifice for our sins and sympathetic heavenly high priest to intercede for us to the Father We can be encouraged to follow His example hiding the Word in our hearts to the point that we more consistently resist temptation and do the Lord’s will Jesus Victorious Over Temptation For we do not have a high priest who cannot sympathize with our weaknesses, but One who has been tempted in all things as we are, yet without sin (Heb 4:15) Therefore let us draw near with confidence to the throne of grace, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help in time of need (Heb 4:16)

Jesus’ Obedience : 

Jesus’ Obedience In his active obedience, Jesus fulfilled all the law of God on behalf of His people, serving God and doing good. This active obedience is the positive righteousness that is granted as a gift through faith to believers, giving us a right standing in God’s presence. In His passive obedience, Christ paid the penalty owed by sinners to God. He did this by suffering death on the cross. In this sense “passive” doesn’t mean inactive or detached but rather permitting or allowing.

Our Humble Obedience : 

Our Humble Obedience We need to humble ourselves under God’s almighty rule in that we exhibit an active obedience; proactively doing what he has commanded us in his word. Pray, worship, fellowship, give, evangelize, make disciples, love one another etc. We also need to humble ourselves under God’s rule in that we exhibit a passive obedience. Permitting and allowing God to work his good, perfect and acceptable will in our lives in suffering, sickness and even death. “Your attitude should be the same as that of Christ Jesus: Who, being in very nature God, did not consider equality with God something to be grasped, but made himself nothing, taking the very nature of a servant, being made in human likeness. And being found in appearance as a man, he humbled himself and became obedient to death--even death on a cross! (Phil. 2:5-8)

Slide 16: 

Christ Speaks The fourteen steps that you are about to climb you do not take alone. I am with you. Even though you may feel you are unique and set apart, through the mystery of our Father’s love we are truly one – one Christ. That is how my way of the cross two thousand years ago and your “way” now are somehow the same. With this difference, My life was incomplete until I crowned it by my death. Your “way” now will only be complete when you have crowned them by your life by me through – OBEDIENCE. The beauty of Jesus can be seen in us if: – We live pure life – We have pure speech – We live sacrificially – We are persons of charitable deeds How beautiful are we this afternoon?
