    Galatians 4:1-11 - Bible study

    Galatians 4:1-11 - Bible study

    A text taken out of context is a pretext, and I can do all things through a text taken out of context. Much commentary and discussion around Paul's epistle to the Galatians has been continually removed from the context. And I will continue to refer back to the contextual issues that face the Galatians believers. The issue is not, and I repeat, not that they doubt Jesus is the Messiah. No one is telling them that! The issue is social boundaries within the Jesus movement, that is the standing and relationship that Jews and Gentiles have, particularly towards the application of the Torah. Paul has argued that Gentiles are of equal standing as Jewish people in the Messiah, as are all people, whether they be male or female or of any socio economic status.

    God's promised house

    God's promised house

    18 July 2021 - Eighth Sunday after Pentecost - On Tisha b'Av, Deacon Aaron Eime has us consider God's promise to David. David desired to build a house for God, but God instead promises to build David into a house, a dynasty. This house would bring forth the Messiah, the one who will accomplish God's desire to dwell not just among Israel but all humanity.

    Readings: 2 Samuel 7:1-14; Psalm 89:20-37; Mark 6:30-34, 53-56

    Galatians 3:21-29 - Bible study

    Galatians 3:21-29 - Bible study

    According to the Torah, God had promised Abraham that through his descendants all the nations (the Gentiles) of the world would be blessed. The physical Torah itself appeared later in history to Moses and was given specifically to the people of Israel. Israel were instructed to be a distinct people that would bring light to the nations. As people were drawn to the monotheistic faith of Israel, they would come into contact with the teaching and instruction (the Torah) of God. Now that the promised Messiah had indeed arrived and ascended to Heaven, what role does the Torah play in the life of the believer and was the Torah actually in opposition to the good news of the redeemer? The answer to which Paul replies - absolutely not!

    Living a holy life of worship

    Living a holy life of worship

    11 July 2021 - Seventh Sunday after Pentecost - God the Creator is above his creation, and so is worthy of worship by his creatures. When God created the world, he did so to enter into relationship with his creatures. This has never changed. Rev. David Pileggi reminds us that it is only in holiness can we draw near to God. Holiness is not only refraining from evil, but it is also pursuing good. Right worship includes living a generous and moral life so we can reflect to the world the goodness of God.

    Readings: 2 Samuel 6:1-5, 12b-19; Psalm 24; Ephesians 1:3-14

    Galatians 3:6-20 - Bible study

    Galatians 3:6-20 - Bible study

    Paul has made his argument that righteousness is imputed by God to Gentiles as well as to Jewish people and that it is not earned through the ‘works of the Law’ that create distinctions, boundaries and social standings between them. A new reality has been formed with the resurrection of the Messiah which Paul can see clearly now, yet others (his antagonists) are unable to at the present time. Jews and Gentiles are of equal value, infinitely loved by God who created all things and sustains all things, God has plans for all of humanity, and the Torah proves it!

    Hit the Road and Travel Light

    4 July 2021 - Sixth Sunday after Pentecost - To be a disciple is to be sent. We are sent out to preach repentance, confront evil, and heal the hurting. Rev. David Pileggi reminds us that to be successful in our call, we must be radically dependent on God. It is God's gifts of repentance, courage, and compassion that enable us to minister to those around us.

    Readings: Ezekiel 2:1-5; 2 Corinthians 12:2-10; Mark 6:1-13

Encouraging. Biblical. Sound.

I have enjoyed listening to Christ Church Jerusalem for the past few years. I am thankful to have found fellow Christians walking in the The Way. Nothing watered down. True to scripture and sound interpretation. Thank you Lord for these brothers and sisters.
