In this final session focussing on the identity of Jesus, we summarise what Jesus came to do as the Redeemer. What does it mean for him to redeem, and how should it make a difference to our lives?
Christ humbled himself, even to death on a cross – and so God exalted him. He rose from the dead, ascended into heaven, and will return as judge. What does that mean for us?
Christ is a king, yet he overturned all our notions of kingly privilege. He humbled himself even to the point of death. What does that mean for his followers?
The church has traditionally recognised three ‘offices’ (or roles) of Christ – prophet, priest, and king. How should we relate to Christ as a prophet? What is a prophet, and what does it mean for us?
The Ascension is probably the most overlooked aspect of Jesus’ time on earth. And yet it is deeply significant! In this session we look at the significance of Jesus’ resurrection – what it means for us, and how he will come again as judge.
When it’s complete, this course will be available on the courses page.
In this session of the Heidelberg, we look into the suffering of Christ. There are three questions:
- What does it mean that Christ suffered?
- Why did he suffer under Pontius Pilate as a judge?
- Does it have a special meaning that Christ died by crucifixion and not in some other way?
The point of the session is to say that Christ’s suffering was not random or pointless, but there was a particular meaning for it. It’s important for Christians to spend some time thinking about.
