Paul's boldness was remarkable. He preached the Good News of Christ to Jews and gentiles alike, regardless of their economic or social standing. He taught the poor and rich, men and women, Jew and Gentile. He declared the resurrection of Jesus Christ to kings, and others in authority. All of which was without shame or embarrassment.
This is my first post that is explicitly focused on the Good News of Christ, and I want to examine a pivotal passage that shares many of its claims. Specifically, the ones that were taught shortly after Jesus rose from the dead. It is said by many that there are statements in 1 Corinthians 15 that originated from within just a few years after Jesus' resurrection. They were also prophesied about in Isaiah and the Psalms.
It is important to remember all the different aspects of Jesus. Not just the ones with which we are comfortable. If we recognize some aspects of Him, but deny others, then we run the risk of admiring a false Jesus. We need to guard ourselves against that possibility. Please join me as we study through this great chapter and see the many impressive claims it makes about Jesus Christ.
The Word of God begins with the One who creates. It doesn't start with mountains or trees or the stars. Instead of beginning with the world we see around us its initial focus is on God Himself. This is fitting, for without God there is nothing. Although it may not be immediately apparent, we see God's authority throughout the first chapter of Genesis.
