The Formation of the Church (N.D, M.S, M.C)
Transcript of The Formation of the Church (N.D, M.S, M.C)
The Formation of the Church
First Stage: Prefigured in the Old Testament
This stage begins with Adam and Eve. This stage is when God starts to reveal himself.
Stage 2: Made Present in Christ's Life
This stage started at the Incarnation, when Jesus became man.
Stage 3: Made Known to the World on Pentecost
This stage was made known to the world on Pentecost.
God makes a covenant, or a promise, to Abraham and his descendants to be their protector.
With Moses we see the start of a organized religion. We start to see laws, the Ten Commandments, formal ceremonies, Mass, and authority, Moses.
He was a vicar of God and he foreshadowed that Christ will be the eternal king.
What Jesus Did on Earth
He chose 12 Apostles to spread his message.
He performed miracles.
He was chosen to be the first leader of the Church, or the Pope.
When Jesus Ascended to Heaven, the basic structure of the Church was complete.
On Pentecost, the Holy Spirit descends on the Apostles, and allows them to speak different languages so that they can preach God's word to others.
Jesus laid the foundations for the Sacraments, but formally the Sacraments were established sometime within Stage 3 of the Formation of the Church.
In the Bible, they weren't many prayers that are still around today. Most of the ones we say now originated some time in Stage 3.
