Conclusion of Mark’s Gospel

Yesterday we finished reading through the gospel of Mark in our Adult Bible Reading class. The gospel concludes with the astonishing discovery that Christ’s tomb is empty.

You seek Jesus of Nazareth, who was crucified. He has risen; he is not here. See the place where they laid him. But go, tell his disciples and Peter that he is going before you to Galilee. There you will see him, just as he told you. Mark 16 v 6-7 (ESV)

The empty tomb and the reality of Christ’s resurrection from the dead revolutionised the lives of his disciples in the 1st Century AD.  It still has the power to do the same for us.

Do you not know that all of us who have been baptised into Christ Jesus were baptised into his death? We were buried therefore with him by baptism into death, in order that, just as Christ was raised from the dead by the glory of the Father, we too might walk in newness of life. Romans 6 v 3-4 (ESV)

What does the Bible mean by being “baptised into Christ Jesus”? What does walking in “newness of life” look like? Drop us a line or pay us a visit on a Sunday morning and learn with us.

Hebrews 11: Something Better for Us

Hebrews 11 is one of the chapters for today in the Bible reading plan that many Christadelphians follow. It is often called “the faith chapter” and is full of examples of men and women of faith from the Old Testament.More than that, it records how their faith motivated to do something.

Wordle.net is a fantastic site for creating a visual representation of text. The more times a word occurs in the text the larger it is in the wordle. This is Hebrews 11 from the English Standard Version.

hebrews 11

The writer of the letter explains that he would love to spend a lot more time writing about the examples of Bible characters but time constrains him. Also, he wants to emphasise that great as these men and women were, they are dead and buried, still waiting for the reward that God is going to give them.

“And all these, though commended through their faith, did not receive what was promised, since God had provided something better for us, that apart from us they should not be made perfect.” Hebrews 11v39-40

Want to learn more about the “something better for us”? Me too. Get in touch and come and read the Bible with us.
