Citizenship Slides, 4/27/14

  1. 1. Up  to  this  word  they  listened  to  him.  Then  they   raised  their  voices  and  said,  “Away  with  such  a   fellow  from  the  earth!  For  he  should  not  be   allowed  to  live.”  And  as  they  were  shou?ng  and   throwing  off  their  cloaks  and  flinging  dust  into   the  air,  the  tribune  ordered  him  to  be  brought   into  the  barracks,  saying  that  he  should  be   examined  by  flogging,  to  find  out  why  they  were   shou?ng  against  him  like  this.    
  2. 2. But  when  they  had  stretched  him  out  for  the   whips,  Paul  said  to  the  centurion  who  was   standing  by,  “Is  it  lawful  for  you  to  flog  a  man   who  is  a  Roman  ci?zen  and  uncondemned?”   When  the  centurion  heard  this,  he  went  to  the   tribune  and  said  to  him,  “What  are  you  about  to   do?  For  this  man  is  a  Roman  ci?zen.”  So  the   tribune  came  and  said  to  him,  “Tell  me,  are  you   a  Roman  ci?zen?”  And  he  said,  “Yes.”    
  3. 3. The  tribune  answered,  “I  bought  this  ci?zenship   for  a  large  sum.”  Paul  said,  “But  I  am  a  ci?zen  by   birth.”  So  those  who  were  about  to  examine  him   withdrew  from  him  immediately,  and  the   tribune  also  was  afraid,  for  he  realized  that  Paul   was  a  Roman  ci?zen  and  that  he  had  bound  him.   Acts  22:22-­‐29  (ESV)  
  4. 4. The  tribune  answered,  “I  bought  this  ci?zenship   for  a  large  sum.”  Paul  said,  “But  I  am  a  ci?zen  by   birth.”   Acts  22:28  (ESV)  
  5. 5. "Give  me  your  :red,  your  poor,   Your  huddled  masses  yearning  to  breathe  free,   The  wretched  refuse  of  your  teeming  shore.   Send  these,  the  homeless,  tempest-­‐tost  to  me,   I  liJ  my  lamp  beside  the  golden  door!"    
  6. 6. • Ci?zen  by  natural  birth   • Ci?zen  by  process  of   naturaliza?on  
  7. 7. “‘And  in  the  last  days  it  shall  be,  God  declares,   that  I  will  pour  out  my  Spirit  on  all  flesh,   and  your  sons  and  your  daughters  shall  prophesy,          and  your  young  men  shall  see  visions,          and  your  old  men  shall  dream  dreams;   even  on  my  male  servants  and  female  servants          in  those  days  I  will  pour  out  my  Spirit,  and  they   shall  prophesy.   Acts  2:17-­‐18  (ESV)  
  8. 8. For  the  Scripture  says,  “Everyone  who  believes   in  him  will  not  be  put  to  shame.”  For  there  is  no   dis?nc?on  between  Jew  and  Greek;  for  the   same  Lord  is  Lord  of  all,  bestowing  his  riches  on   all  who  call  on  him.  For  “everyone  who  calls  on   the  name  of  the  Lord  will  be  saved.”   Romans  10:11-­‐13  (ESV)  
  9. 9. For  while  we  were  s?ll  weak,  at  the  right  ?me   Christ  died  for  the  ungodly.  For  one  will  scarcely  die   for  a  righteous  person—though  perhaps  for  a  good   person  one  would  dare  even  to  die—  but  God   shows  his  love  for  us  in  that  while  we  were  s?ll   sinners,  Christ  died  for  us.  Since,  therefore,  we   have  now  been  jus?fied  by  his  blood,  much  more   shall  we  be  saved  by  him  from  the  wrath  of  God.   For  if  while  we  were  enemies  we  were  reconciled   to  God  by  the  death  of  his  Son,  much  more,  now   that  we  are  reconciled,  shall  we  be  saved  by  his  life.   Romans  5:6-­‐10  (ESV)
