The Church
Still does miracles, like Jesus did!
+ new Spiritual Gifts!
Still Baptizes people*
* But for different reasons...
John the Baptist baptized only to help people symbolize the repentance in their hearts.

The Church baptizes for
from sin
as a public profession of the fact that a person in the Gospel of Jesus; and
as a - God is actively involved doing something to us in baptism.
to receive the gift of the for power
as a sign of in the Church

Reading the Book
Holy Spirit
At first the Church was all Jewish. But during this time, Gentiles begin to believe and become Christians.
Since Jesus had predicted this, the Christians left Jerusalem. Over a million people died in the siege. Afterwards, many Jewish leaders condemned the Christians as traitors. This was the final split between Jews and Christians.
Holy Communion
(a.k.a. The Lord's Supper, Holy Eucharist, the Mass)
Because Jesus died and rose again...
From this time until the destruction of the Temple in 70 AD, Jesus and his followers begin to be perceived as being opposed to Jewish tradition and worship in the Temple.
Jewish politics between the Pharisees and the Sadducees becomes more and more violent. The parties even kill one another. Because Rome's occupation is becoming more and more harsh, the anti-Roman Pharisees gain the upper hand in the grassroots.
Jewish revolt in Judea
68 AD
Since Jews no longer had a Temple in which to offer sacrifices, Jewish worship began to consist only in Saturday Synagogue meetings.
Jewish translators compile their own Hebrew text of the Old Testament (called the Masoretic Text) specifically to have a different bible from the Christians.
Leadership of the Jewish religion is no longer centered in Jerusalem, but in Babylon. The leaders there are called "Rabbi." They write the Talmud, a series of commentaries on the Old Testament.
5,000 Jewish soldiers and civilians are crucified along all the roads to Jerusalem.
By now, so many Gentiles (non-Jews) have become Christians that they are the majority. The Christian Church distances itself from Judaism.
How did the Church decide which books to put into the New Testament?
1. Written by a real Apostle (or with an Apostle's input)
2. Read by all the churches
3. Inspired by the Holy Spirit
Closed Canon?
What did Jesus and his disciples DO all day long?
and walk...
and walk...
Greek "ekklesia" = "gathering, assembly"
Used of an assembly of citizens called out of their daily work to perform an important civic function, such as voting on leaders.
Greek "kyraikon doma" = "house of the Lord"

German "kirche"

English "church"
1. What’s wrong with the world, and how do we fix it?
2. How did our world come to be the way it is?
3. What makes a happy life?
4. What does it mean to be human?
5. Who or what is the ultimate moral authority?
6. When it comes to choosing a religion, do people have options?
7. If something is true or real, is it true/real for everyone or just for me?
8. Do all religious work equally well?
9. What is the nature of God?
The BIG Questions: Same story, but Jesus.
Same story as in Judaism: sin is the problem. Judaism = there is no fix. But Chrisianity: Jesus' sacrifice fixes guilt; the Holy Spirit fixes our hearts.
Same story as in Judaism: God created it good, humans introduced sin.
Same as in Judaism, but God is now "Father," Jesus the perfect example, and the Holy Spirit lives in us. Like his cross, our suffering leads to heavenly bliss.
Same as in Judaism: made from dust in God's image. But Jesus is the only perfect human being ever. To be human is to have a relationship with God the Father.
Same as in Judaism: the one God, as revealed in the Scripture. God's law is good, but it cannot save, only condemn. Jesus brings forgiveness and real change.
Same as in Judaism: There is only one God, and he alone is to be worshipped. But Jesus is God, and he is the only way to approach God.
Same as in Judaism: Truth is absolute and universal, but that truth is "Jesus is Lord."
Same as in Judaism: there is only one God. All other religions work equally badly. But what about Jews?
Same as in Judaism: God is One... but in that unity there is Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
Is this "Jesus" movement a new religion?
... but Yes
At first, all the Christians are Jewish.
They worship the same God, same temple, same scriptures - but some new meanings.
They keep all the laws of God. Some, like James, are better at this than the Pharisees are.
There is no idea of a Son of God in Judaism; the Trinity is new.
The God-man is new.

For God to sacrifice a human being or Himself for sins is new.
Sunday worship with Holy Communion is new.
If all this
stuff is true,...
Christianity is nothing but the for Judaism if Jesus was actually the Son of God.
logical consequences
Old Covenant
The Pattern finally ends!
1. In the beginning, Good.
2. Good and Evil are in conflict.
