Jesus Came, Was Successful, Requires Faith

Overview

Tod Kennedy, December 2015

Jesus Christ came, was successful, and requires faith

  1. Christ born at the right time and place (Galatians 4.4, Micah 5.2, Luke 2.4).
  2. Why did he come?
    • To realize Old Testament prophecy (Genesis 3.15, Isaiah 53, Zechariah 12.10; Matthew 1.20-23; Luke 2.4).
    • To reveal God to people (John 1.1.1,14,18; 14.9; 10.30; Hebrews 1.1-3).
    • To redeem humanity (Matthew 1.21; Luke 5.32; 19.10; John 1.29; 3.16-18; 10.10; Romans 5.6; 1 Timothy 1.15; Hebrews 9.24-28).
    • To restore all under God’s authority (Romans 8.18-23; 1 Corinthians 15.20-28; Revelation 21-22).
  3. He was successful (Luke 24.1-8; Acts 1.9-11; 2.22-36; Romans 4.25; Philippians 2.8-11; 1 Tim 3.16; Zechariah 14.9).
  4. He made exclusive claims (Acts 4.12; John 8.23-24, 56-59; 14.6; 1 Timothy 2.5; Hebrews 10.10-14; 1 John 5.10-12).

Conclusion

  1. The challenge of the gospel (John 3.16-18; 14.6; 1 Timothy 1.15-16).
  2. The challenge of the Christian way of life (2 Corinthians 4.18; 5.7; Galatians 5.16; Ephesians 5.2; Colossians 1.10; 2.6; Hebrews 11.6).
