HOPE OF THE RESURRECTION

EMPHASIS ON THE RESURRECTION

Jesus was a master at making the appropriate emphasis between concepts that were of seemingly equal importance.

He would emphasize mercy for example over sacrifice, whereas we see clearly that the latter occupies a very important place in God’s heart. (Matthew 12:1-7)

Another example would be when he accuses the Teachers of the Law of neglecting the more important matters of the Law – justice, mercy and faithfulness to prioritize their legalistic practices. (Matthew 23:23)

When it comes to the death and the resurrection of Jesus, we can only wonder which of the two deserves Jesus’ emphasis.

Listen to this lesson built around Mark’s Gospel and decide for yourself where the emphasis should lie if at all that should be the case!
