MESSIAH

WHAT KIND OF MESSIAH?
  1. The Identity of Jesus – Calvary – (Mark 15:47The Messiah of Israel cannot be understood apart from his sacrificial death)
  2. Lion or Lamb?  Proclaiming a Different Jesus – (In the book of Revelation, the “Lion of Judah” becomes the “Slain Lamb,” not vice versa)
  3. Jesus, the Anointed Man of the Spirit – (His anointing by God’s Spirit is what set Jesus apart for his messianic ministry)
  4. Jesus – Full of Grace and Truth – (John 1:18 – The Law came through Moses but grace and truth through Jesus)
  5. Jesus is the Light of the World, Period! – (Jesus is the “light of the world,” not any nation, a system of government or political ideology)
  6. The Suffering Son of Man – (Mark 8:31To be the Messiah of Israel means suffering and death, though he is the promised Messiah and Lord over all things)
  7. The Son of God in the Gospel of Mark – (Mark presents a Messiah that cannot be understood apart from his self-sacrificial death)
HIS MINISTRY
  1. The Name of ‘Jesus’ – (Matthew 1:18-21 – His name signifies that, “He will save his people from their sins”)
  2. Jesus – A Priest Forever – (Psalm 110:4 – The priesthood of Jesus is superior to that of Levi or Aaron because it rests on the endless resurrected life of Jesus, a priest forever after the order of Melchizedek)
  3. The Humanity and Priesthood of Jesus – (Hebrews 2:5-18 – Hebrews Chapter 2 presents the priesthood of Jesus – his genuine human nature and necessary death to qualify him to become a faithful high priest)
