  2. 2. Our presentation <ul><li>Unlocking the meaning of the word salvation </li></ul><ul><li>Why do we need salvation? </li></ul><ul><li>What the Bible has to say about salvation </li></ul><ul><li>How we make it relevant to us </li></ul>
  3. 3. The English word <ul><li>salvation noun . </li></ul><ul><li>The action of saving something; the state of being saved; preservation or deliverance from destruction, ruin, loss or harm. </li></ul><ul><li>Source: Shorter Oxford English Dictionary </li></ul>
  4. 4. Hebrew & Greek words <ul><li>OT:3444 hu*Wvy= yeshuw`ah (yesh-oo'-aw); feminine passive participle of OT:3467 ; something saved, i.e. (abstractly) deliverance; hence, aid, victory, prosperity: KJV - deliverance, health, help (-ing), salvation, save, saving (health), welfare. </li></ul><ul><li>NT:4991 swthri/a soteria (so-tay-ree'-ah); feminine of a derivative of NT:4990 as (properly, abstract) noun; rescue or safety (physically or morally): KJV - deliver, health, salvation, save, saving. </li></ul>
  5. 5. Why do we need salvation? <ul><li>Romans 5:12-14 </li></ul><ul><li>12 Wherefore, as by one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin; and so death passed upon all men , for that all have sinned: </li></ul><ul><li>13 (For until the law sin was in the world: but sin is not imputed when there is no law. </li></ul><ul><li>14 Nevertheless death reigned from Adam to Moses, even over them that had not sinned after the similitude of Adam's transgression, who is the figure of him that was to come… </li></ul>
  6. 6. The inevitability of death <ul><li>The evidence of our eyes </li></ul><ul><li>The findings of science </li></ul><ul><li>Our own experience </li></ul><ul><li>Health care prolongs life but does not avoid death </li></ul><ul><li>Many have sought immortality but have not found it because they looked in the wrong place </li></ul>
  7. 7. The Pharaohs of Egypt
  8. 8. Emperor Qin’s army
  9. 9. Cryogenic freezing
  10. 10. What God has to say <ul><li>Romans 5:18-21 </li></ul><ul><li>18 Therefore as by the offence of one judgment came upon all men to condemnation; even so by the righteousness of one the free gift came upon all men unto justification of life. </li></ul><ul><li>19 For as by one man's disobedience many were made sinners, so by the obedience of one shall many be made righteous. </li></ul><ul><li>20 Moreover the law entered, that the offence might abound. But where sin abounded, grace did much more abound: </li></ul><ul><li>21 That as sin hath reigned unto death, even so might grace reign through righteousness unto eternal life by Jesus Christ our Lord. </li></ul>
  11. 11. Resurrection is the key... <ul><li>1 Corinthians 15:22-23 </li></ul><ul><li>22 For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ shall all be made alive. </li></ul><ul><li>23 But every man in his own order: Christ the firstfruits; afterward they that are Christ's at his coming. </li></ul>
  12. 12. Some doubted Paul… <ul><li>1 Corinthians 15:12-19 </li></ul><ul><li>12 Now if Christ be preached that he rose from the dead, how say some among you that there is no resurrection of the dead? </li></ul><ul><li>13 But if there be no resurrection of the dead, then is Christ not risen: </li></ul><ul><li>14 And if Christ be not risen, then is our preaching vain, and your faith is also vain. </li></ul><ul><li>15 Yea, and we are found false witnesses of God; because we have testified of God that he raised up Christ: whom he raised not up, if so be that the dead rise not. </li></ul><ul><li>16 For if the dead rise not, then is not Christ raised: </li></ul><ul><li>17 And if Christ be not raised, your faith is vain; ye are yet in your sins. </li></ul><ul><li>18 Then they also which are fallen asleep in Christ are perished. </li></ul><ul><li>19 If in this life only we have hope in Christ, we are of all men most miserable. </li></ul>
  13. 13. Paul’s total belief <ul><li>Philippians 3:8-11 </li></ul><ul><li>8 Yea doubtless, and I count all things but loss for the excellency of the knowledge of Christ Jesus my Lord: for whom I have suffered the loss of all things, and do count them but dung, that I may win Christ, </li></ul><ul><li>9 And be found in him, not having mine own righteousness, which is of the law, but that which is through the faith of Christ, the righteousness which is of God by faith: </li></ul><ul><li>10 That I may know him, and the power of his resurrection , and the fellowship of his sufferings, being made conformable unto his death; </li></ul><ul><li>11 If by any means I might attain unto the resurrection of the dead . </li></ul>
  14. 14. Making it relevant for us <ul><li>1 Peter 3:21-22 </li></ul><ul><li>21 …baptism doth also now save us (not the putting away of the filth of the flesh, but the answer of a good conscience toward God,) by the resurrection of Jesus Christ: </li></ul><ul><li>22 Who is gone into heaven, and is on the right hand of God; angels and authorities and powers being made subject unto him. </li></ul>
  15. 15. Resurrection on Christ’s return <ul><li>Matthew 16:24-27 </li></ul><ul><li>24 Then said Jesus unto his disciples, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me. </li></ul><ul><li>25 For whosoever will save his life shall lose it: and whosoever will lose his life for my sake shall find it. </li></ul><ul><li>26 For what is a man profited, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul? </li></ul><ul><li>27 For the Son of man [Jesus] shall come in the glory of his Father with his angels; and then he shall reward every man according to his works . </li></ul>
  16. 16. The calling of the faithful <ul><li>2 Peter 1:10-11 </li></ul><ul><li>10 Wherefore the rather, brethren, give diligence to make your calling and election sure : for if ye do these things, ye shall never fall: </li></ul><ul><li>11 For so an entrance shall be ministered unto you abundantly into the everlasting kingdom of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ . </li></ul>
