  3. 3. Let’s Read Mark 6:1-6
  4. 4. Mark 6:1, Jesus’ Hometown? • Mark 6:1 Jesus went out from there and came into His hometown; and His disciples followed Him. • Not His ministry headquarters • Not His birth place • But His hometown ? • Nazareth
  5. 5. Mark 6:3, Jesus’ Mother And Brothers • Matthew 12:46...speaking to the crowds, behold, His mother and brothers were standing outside, seeking to speak to Him. 47 Someone said to Him, "Behold, Your mother and Your brothers are standing outside seeking to speak to You.“ • Mar 3:31 And His mother and His brothers arrived, and standing outside they sent word to Him, and called Him. • Mat 13:55 "Is not this the carpenter's son? Is not His mother called Mary, and His brothers, James and Joseph and Simon and Judas? • John 2:12 After this He went down to Capernaum, He and His mother, and His brothers, and His disciples; and there they stayed a few days. • Galatians 1:19 But I did not see any other of the apostles except James, the Lord's brother.
  6. 6. Mark 6:4, Hometown Preaching • Mark 6:4 Jesus said to them, "A prophet is not without honor except in his hometown and among his own relatives and in his own household." • Matthew 11:1 …He departed from there to teach and preach in their cities. • Jesus was in His hometown, Matthew 13:57 And they took offense at Him. But Jesus said to them, "A prophet is not without honor except in his hometown and in his own household.” • “An expert is someone who is more than 50 miles from home” was said by one of our guests
  7. 7. Let’s Read Mark 6:7-13
  8. 8. Luke 9:3 Mark 6:8 Matthew 10:9-10, Take A Staff Or Not • QUESTION, Dear Compass, Regarding inerrancy, how can Mark (Mark 6:8) record Jesus allowing His disciples to take a staff and Matthew (Matthew 10:9-10) and Luke (9:3) say it's forbidden? • ANSWER, The emphasis of the Lord's instruction was clear: Do not make any "special" provision for this mission. Therefore, the Lord permitted the disciples to take along any staffs they already had. But they were not to take one if they didn't already have one. The Greek verb used in Matthew (a different word from the one used in Mark) means to "acquire" or "obtain." • and He instructed them that they should take nothing for their journey, except a mere staff—no bread, no bag, no money in their belt —Mark 6:8 Do not acquire gold, or silver, or copper for your money belts, or a bag for your journey, or even two coats, or sandals, or a staff; for the worker is worthy of his support. —Matthew 10:9-10 • And He said to them, "Take nothing for your journey, neither a staff, nor a bag, nor bread, nor money; and do not even have two tunics apiece. —Luke 9:3
  9. 9. Mark 6:8, Take A Staff Or Not • Matthew 10:9 "Do not acquire gold, or silver… • <2932> κτάομαι ktaomai, Meaning: to acquire • Luke 9:3 …"Take nothing for your journey… • <142> αἴρω airo, Meaning: to raise, take up, lift • Mark 6:8…and He instructed them that they should take nothing for their journey… • <142> αἴρω airo, Meaning: to raise, take up, lift
  10. 10. Mark 6:9, Wearing Woman's Clothing • Mark 6:9 but to wear sandals; and He added, "Do not put on two tunics.“ • Acts 12:8 And the angel said…"Wrap your cloak around you and follow me.“ • Deuteronomy 22:5 "A woman shall not wear man's clothing, nor shall a man put on a woman's clothing; for whoever does these things is an abomination to the LORD your God.
  11. 11. Mark 6:9, Wearing Woman's Clothing
  12. 12. Mark 6:12, “repent” • Mark 6:12 They went out and preached that men should repent. • Only 2 uses of “repent” in Mark • Mark 1:15 and saying, "The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand; repent and believe in the gospel.“ • Mark 1:4 …baptism of repentance…
  13. 13. Mark 6:12, Repent, For The Kingdom Of Heaven Is At Hand • The phrase "Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is at hand" disappears after Matthew 4:17. Dr, Andy Woods says the offer of the kingdom is withdrawn after Matthew chapter 12 • Matthew 4:17 From that time Jesus began to preach and say, "Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.“ • Matthew 21:43 "Therefore I say to you, the kingdom of God will be taken away from you and given to a people, producing the fruit of it. • Matthew 12:28 Matthew 13:11 Matthew 21:43
  14. 14. The Word “grace” In Mark • The Word “grace” is not in Mark, or Matthew • Luke 2:40 The Child continued to grow and become strong, increasing in wisdom; and the grace of God was upon Him. • But it’s used the most in Romans. 18 X’s in NASU
  15. 15. Let’s Read Mark 6:14-29
  16. 16. Mark 6:15, Reincarnation • Mark 6:15 But others were saying, "He is Elijah." And others were saying, "He is a prophet, like one of the prophets of old." 16 But when Herod heard of it, he kept saying, "John, whom I beheaded, has risen!“ • Some try to use this verse to claim biblical reincarnation. But it says nothing about coming back in some other form to pay for past sins. God has raised some from the dead, for His purposes, but God says… • Hebrews 9:27 And inasmuch as it is appointed for men to die once and after this comes judgment, • Satan started the lie of reincarnation back with Eve and he has deceived many since with it. Gen 3:4 The serpent said to the woman, "You surely will not die!“ It works because, Ecclesiastes 3:11 …He [God] has also set eternity in their heart…”
  17. 17. Mark 6:15, wikipedia, Reincarnation • Reincarnation is the religious or philosophical concept that the soul or spirit, after biological death, begins a new life in a new body that may be human, animal or spiritual depending on the moral quality of the previous life's actions. This doctrine is a central tenet of the Indian religions.[1] It is also a common belief of various ancient and modern religions such as Spiritism, Theosophy, and Eckankar and is found in many tribal societies around the world, in places such as Siberia, West Africa, North America, and Australia.[2]
  18. 18. Mark 6:15, wikipedia, Reincarnation • “… The word "reincarnation" derives from Latin, literally meaning, "entering the flesh again“…. There is no word corresponding exactly to the English terms "rebirth", "metempsychosis", "transmigration" or "reincarnation" in the traditional languages of Pāli and Sanskrit. The entire universal process that gives rise to the cycle of death and rebirth, governed by karma… The actual process of change from one life to the next is called punarbhava (Sanskrit) or punabbhava (Pāli), literally "becoming again", or more briefly bhava, "becoming", and some English-speaking Buddhists prefer the term "rebirth" or "re-becoming" to render this term as they take "reincarnation" to imply a fixed entity that is reborn… between 20 and 30 percent of persons in western countries who may be nominal Christians also believe in reincarnation…”
  19. 19. “Hindu gods are said to have reincarnated (see Avatar): Lord Vishnu is known for his 10 incarnations” wikipedia, Hindus believe the self or soul (atman) repeatedly takes on a physical body.

  21. 21. Mark 6:15, Reincarnation • I think the whole idea of reincarnation is illogical. To think that a human could return as a non human, to pay back human sin, or karma, is preposterous. How could living a good life as a cow, an insect, a frog, or even as your uncle, possibly reconcile, or justify the your sins? • How many times would Hitler have to live as a good frog to be justified? And how would that work? Who decides if he should come back as a deer or a dog? Jesus said in, Luke 16:26 “And besides all this, between us and you there is a great chasm fixed, so that those who wish to come over from here to you will not be able, and that none may cross over from there to us.”
  22. 22. Who Is This Guy Herod the Tetrarch ? • Mark 6:14 And King Herod heard of … these miraculous powers • Matthew 14:1 At that time Herod the tetrarch heard the news about Jesus, • Luke 9:7 Now Herod the tetrarch…was greatly perplexed • Matthew 2:15 He remained there until the death of Herod… [After Herod The Great (his dad), then Herod the Tetrarch] File:Brooklyn Museum - Herod
  23. 23. Mark 6:17, His Brother's Wife • Mark 6:17 …Herodias, the wife of his brother Philip, because he had married her. • Genesis 38:9 Onan knew that the offspring would not be his; so when he went in to his brother's wife, he wasted his seed on the ground in order not to give offspring to his brother. • Leviticus 18:16 'You shall not uncover the nakedness of your brother's wife; it is your brother's nakedness. Leviticus 20:21 'If there is a man who takes his brother's wife, it is abhorrent… • Deuteronomy 25:5-10 "When brothers live together and one of them dies and has no son, the wife of the deceased shall not be married outside the family to a strange man. Her husband's brother shall go in to her and take her to himself as wife and perform the duty of a husband's brother to her….
  24. 24. Mark 6:18, His Brother's Wife • Ruth 3:9-12 …"I am Ruth your maid. So spread your covering over your maid, for you are a close relative.“….12 "Now it is true I am a close relative; however, there is a relative closer than I…. • Ruth 4:14 Then the women said to Naomi, "Blessed is the LORD who has not left you without a redeemer today… [kinsman redeemer] • Leviticus 25:25 'If a fellow countryman of yours becomes so poor he has to sell part of his property, then his nearest kinsman is to come and buy back what his relative has sold…. • Matthew 22:25 "Now there were seven brothers with us; and the first married and died, and having no children left his wife to his brother; • Jesus had to be human, our close relative, to redeem
  25. 25. Mark 6:18, John the Baptist: The First Christian Martyr, www.biblearchaeology.org • “Three Christian martyrdoms are recorded in the New Testament: John the Baptist in ca. AD 31, Stephen in ca. AD 35 and James the apostle in ca. AD 44. There would be countless others that would follow in their train. In this article I would like to briefly consider the history and archaeology associated with the first Christian martyr, John the Baptist….”

  31. 31. Let’s Read Mark 6:30-44
  32. 32. Mark 6:31, Come And Rest A While • Mark 6:31 And He said to them, "Come away by yourselves to a secluded place and rest a while."

  53. 53. Mark 6:3, Mary Quite Contrary • • • • Mary Quite Contrary Roman Catholicism continues to pervert the true Mary of Scripture in ways that defy the imagination. The Catholic Mary, as described in the 1994 edition of the Catechism of the Catholic Church, is a satanic diversion that leads Catholics away from a pure devotion to the Lord Jesus Christ (2 Cor. 11:3). Rome attributes to Mary many of the divine attributes that are unique to the Lord Jesus. The end result is a counterfeit version of Mary whom Catholics venerate and trust as the channel of all grace. Rome says both Jesus and Mary were immaculately conceived, born without sin, lived sinless lives and now intercede as our advocates. Jesus ascended into heaven, the Catholic Mary was bodily assumed into heaven; Jesus is the second Adam, Mary is the second Eve; Jesus is the King of kings, Mary is the Queen of heaven and earth; Jesus is the mediator, Mary is the co-mediatrix and Jesus is the redeemer, Mary is the coredeemer. Catholics have also declared that it is Mary, not Jesus, that crushes the head of Satan, the serpent. This blasphemous error originated from the mistranslation of Genesis 3:15 from Jerome's Latin Vulgate to the Douay-Rheims English translation. The lie continues today when Catholics celebrate the feast of Our Lady of Guadalupe. Catholics are commanded, under the penalty of sin, to accept these myths about Mary as divine truth. Now according to Carl Anderson, the head of the Knights of Columbus, Mary is the best evangelist. "She is the evangelist par excellence, in part because she enters the world...from the beatific vision, a state of supreme closeness to God," he said Dec. 10 at the Ecclesia in America Conference in Rome. "Her example and continued motherhood of all peoples is a sure path today for the new evangelization."

He described Advent (a season historically observed as a time of preparing for the coming of Jesus) as "a season of Mary." He recommended that Catholics try to set aside time every day to think about the Virgin Mary or to look at a picture of her. "Talk to her as her child. Tell her everything that's on your mind." Read more. Of all the heresies concerning Mary which are embraced by Roman Catholics, her perpetual virginity may be the most bizarre. Historically, Christians have always recognized Mary had four sons and at least two daughters after Jesus was born. This quizzical and outlandish tradition declares Mary's virginal integrity was not violated when she gave birth to Jesus. According to para. 499 of the Catechism, "The deepening of faith in the virginal motherhood led the Church to confess Mary's real and perpetual virginity even in the act of giving birth to the Son of God made man. In fact, Christ's birth "did not diminish his mother's virginal integrity but sanctified it." In the Fundamentals of Catholic Dogma, Dr. Ludwig Ott states, "In the power of the grace of Redemption merited by Christ, Mary, by her spiritual entering into the sacrifice of her Divine Son for men, madeatonement for the sins of men, and merited the application of the redemptive grace of Christ. In this manner she co-operates in the subjective redemption of mankind" (page 213). Here the Catholic Church is claiming that Mary made atonement for the sins of men! The Catechism of the Catholic Church teaches "Mary did not lay aside this saving office but by her manifold intercession continues to bring us the gifts of eternal salvation" (para. 969). "The Immaculate Virgin, preserved free from all stain of original sin, when the course of her earthly life was finished, was taken up body and soul into heavenly glory, and exalted by the Lord as Queen over all things. You conceived the living God and, by your prayers, will deliver our souls from death" (para. 966). Mary, "by special grace of God, committed no sin of any kind during her whole earthly life" (para. 411). She "was the cause of salvation for herself and the whole human race" (para. 494). Those who seek Mary's protection will be saved for all eternity. These doctrines have robbed God of His glory and have resulted in Catholics showing greater devotion to Mary than to Christ. It is our prayer that Catholics would spend more time in the inspired Word of God instead of believing the uninspired words of men. When a crowd told Jesus that His mother was looking for Him, He gave this profound response, "For whoever does the will of God, he is My brother and sister and mother" (Mark 3:32-25).

It is linked with the New Age and evolution versus Creation and the sovereignty of God. Is there a good verse to use to refute this? • • • • • ANSWER: The lie of reincarnation began back in the Garden of Eden when Satan told Eve that she wouldn't die if she ate the forbidden fruit. The serpent said to the woman, "You surely will not die!" —Genesis 3:4Satan's been repeating that lie for 6,000 years because there's an obvious, fleshly appeal to the "not having to die" idea. If we could come back and try to "get it right" time after time, that would mean we would always have another chance. But the Bible says that everyone must die once (Rapture excepted).. . . it is appointed for men to die once and after this comes judgment. —Hebrews 9:27There have been three people who the Bible says did not die.Elijah, who was taken up in the world's first UFO.As they were going along and talking, behold, there appeared a chariot of fire and horses of fire which separated the two of them. And Elijah went up by a whirlwind to heaven. —2 Kings 2:11Elijah is to reappear as one of the two witnesses who show up in Revelation 11 and will die after 3 1/2 years of work (Revelation 11).Behold, I am going to send you Elijah the prophet before the coming of the great and terrible day of the LORD. —Malachi 4:5 There is no record of John's death, only speculation. Jesus said that he wouldn't die until He came again.So Peter seeing him said to Jesus, "Lord, and what about this man?" Jesus said to him, "If I want him to remain until I come, what is that to you? You follow Me!" Therefore this saying went out among the brethren that that disciple would not die; yet Jesus did not say to him that he would not die, but only, "If I want him to remain until I come, what is that to you?" —John 21:21-23John himself said he must prophesy again to many "peoples, nations, tongues and kings."And they said to me, "You must prophesy again concerning many peoples and nations and tongues and kings." —Revelation 10:11This is an unfulfilled prophecy. This makes him logically a good possibility to be the other witness in Revelation 11. Enoch, who walked with God, did not die.Enoch walked with God; and he was not, for God took him. —Genesis 5:24We can only speculate that, since he was "taken/transported" to heaven, he may be counted like those who are Raptured in the future. He is unlikely to be the second witness since he's not Jewish (lived prior to Abraham). • About Compass...
  56. 56. The Gospel of the Kingdom Vs. The Gospel of Grace • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • The promised kingdom will come to Israel! The Gospel of the Kingdom Vs. The Gospel of Grace Wednesday, February 12th, 2014End Times Israel Past Featured Prophecy This entry is part 1 of 1 in the series Kingdom Vs. Grace A Bible Study by Jack Kelley Part 1. The Gospel Of The Kingdom In those days John the Baptist came, preaching in the Desert of Judea and saying, “Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is near.” (Matt. 3:1-2) Prophecies of a Messianic King appear throughout the Old Testament and many in the Jewish leadership saw John’s arrival on the scene as their fulfillment. They sent representatives to the place where John was baptizing to see if he was the promised Messiah. He said he wasn’t, but that the one they had been expecting was even then in their midst (John 1:19-28). 750 years earlier Isaiah had said when the Messiah came He would reign on David’s throne forever (Isaiah 9:6-7) but when John appeared on the scene the throne of David had been vacant for 600 years. He had come to tell them the time was finally at hand and they had better get ready for Him. When Jesus began His ministry, John introduced Him as the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world (John 1:8) and publicly testified that Jesus was the Son of God (John 1:34). Right from the beginning Jesus began teaching that the Kingdom of Heaven was near (Matt. 4:17), and sent His disciples through out the land to alert the people to this fact as well (Matt. 10:7-8). But even with Isaiah’s prophecies, John’s testimony, and the Lord’s teaching, the Jewish leaders refused to accept the fact that Jesus was the Messiah. They questioned His claims, His doctrine, and His miracles in spite of the fact that all were clearly foretold in their prophecies. Isaiah had also said when the Messiah came He would have no beauty or majesty that would attract them to Him and that nothing about His appearance would make them desire Him (Isaiah 53:2). Even so, the fact that Jesus was not like they expected Him to be was a big problem for them. They were looking for a conquering King, like David, and He didn’t fit the description. Just before John was executed, He had sent a delegation of his disciples to confirm for themselves that Jesus was who He claimed to be. In reply Jesus said, “Go back and report to John what you hear and see: The blind receive sight, the lame walk, those who have leprosy are cured, the deaf hear, the dead are raised, and the good news is preached to the poor. Blessed is the man who does not fall away on account of me.” (Matt. 11:4-6) Jesus fed the multitudes, walked on water, healed the sick and raised the dead and still they asked for a miraculous sign. Finally in frustration He responded, “A wicked and adulterous generation looks for a miraculous sign, but none will be given it except the sign of Jonah. For as Jonah was three days and three nights in the belly of a huge fish, so the Son of Man will be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth” (Matt. 12:38-40). They would get their sign, but only after they had executed Him. Later, just a few days before His execution, He warned them again. “Therefore I tell you that the kingdom of God will be taken away from you and given to a people who will produce its fruit” (Matt. 21:43). He was speaking of the coming Church. After the resurrection, having performed the miraculous sign He promised them, Jesus waited 40 days for them to acknowledge it. But upon being informed of the empty tomb the Jewish leaders bribed the soldiers to keep them quiet and refused to recognize the Lord’s fulfillment of the sign of Jonah (Matt. 28:11-15). At the end of the 40 days His disciples asked if He was now going to restore the Kingdom to Israel. Jesus said it was not for them to know the times or dates the Father had set by His own authority (Acts 1:6-7) and after telling them to wait for the Holy Spirit to appear He ascended into heaven (Acts. 1:8-11). An Ambivalent Answer? Some have criticized His response as being ambivalent, but I disagree. The disciples knew 69 of Daniel’s 70 weeks had passed, and there was one week (7 years) left to fulfill. They knew the Messiah had been cut off (put to death) like Daniel had prophesied (Daniel 9:26) and from His teaching they knew why. It was to fulfill three of the six objectives the angel had set forth when he gave Daniel the 70 weeks prophecy over 500 years earlier. “Seventy ‘sevens’ are decreed for your people and your holy city to finish transgression, to put an end to sin, to atone for wickedness, to bring in everlasting righteousness, to seal up vision and prophecy and to anoint the most holy”. (Daniel 9:24) The purpose of the Lord’s death was to finish transgression, put an end to sin and atone for wickedness. What was left was to bring in everlasting righteousness, seal up vision and prophecy, and anoint the Most Holy. Bringing in everlasting righteousness is a reference to Isaiah 9:7 which says the Messiah will reign with justice and righteousness forever. Sealing up vision and prophecy means to bring them to their conclusion by fulfilling them. Anointing means to consecrate or sanctify, and the Most Holy probably refers to the Temple. By telling the disciples it wasn’t for them to know the timing of the kingdom’s restoration and immediately changing the subject to the coming Holy Spirit, I think the Lord was saying the offer of the kingdom was still on the table for Israel, but His focus was about to change. Obviously God knew they had rejected the kingdom at that time, but He was leaving the door open for them to accept it at some point in the future. This is borne out by a prophecy He spoke through Hosea 750 years earlier.
  57. 57. The Gospel of the Kingdom Vs. The Gospel of Grace Conclusion • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • The Gospel of the Kingdom Vs. The Gospel of Grace, Conclusion Wednesday, February 19th, 2014Church Israel Past Featured Prophecy A Bible Study by Jack Kelley Part 2. The Gospel Of Grace The word “grace” appears 170 times in the English translation of the Bible, 37 of them in the Old Testament. Of the remaining 133, only four are contained in the gospels and they all refer to the Lord Jesus (Luke 2:40, John 1:14, 16, 17). The Book of Acts contains 10 appearances, and 2 others can be found in the Book of Revelation (Rev. 1:4, Rev. 22:21) where they essentially open and close the book. That leaves 117 references to grace in the various Epistles. As it’s used in the New Testament, grace is clearly a word that is meant for the Church. It comes from the Greek word charis, which in the Biblical context is defined as “the merciful kindness by which God, exerting his holy influence upon souls, turns them to Christ, keeps, strengthens, increases them in Christian faith, knowledge, affection, and kindles them to the exercise of the Christian virtues.” Much has been written about the different approaches taken by Peter and Paul in presenting the Gospel of Grace to their audiences. The Bible makes it clear Peter believed in salvation by grace. In Acts 15:11 he said, “We believe it is through the grace of our Lord Jesus that we (Jews) are saved, just as they (Gentiles) are.“ But some claim that Peter didn’t mention having our sins forgiven by the Lord’s sacrifice but instead preached a message of repentance and baptism. In contrast, they say Paul emphasized the redeeming power of the Lord’s blood, shed on the cross. He didn’t say much about baptism, claiming the Lord hadn’t sent him to baptize but to preach the gospel (1 Cor. 1:17), and spoke even less about repentance. From this some have concluded that Peter and Paul preached two different gospels. Let’s take a closer look at this opinion. We’ll use Peter’s first public message after the Ascension as an example. Remember, he was talking to the crowd on the Temple Mount during their observance of the Feast of Pentecost. All of them were Jews and many of them were well versed in their scriptures. Let’s join the conversation. “Let all Israel be assured of this: God has made this Jesus, whom you crucified, both Lord and Christ.” When the people heard this, they were cut to the heart and said to Peter and the other apostles, “Brothers, what shall we do?” Peter replied, “Repent and be baptized, every one of you, in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins. And you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit” (Acts 2:36-38) To repent actually means to change our mind about something. While it can bring about a change in behavior, none is necessary to fulfill the meaning of the word. In the case of Peter’s audience the Jews had to change their minds about what it takes to be saved. They had been taught that obedience to the law is what makes one righteous and that was wrong. Peter said it’s believing in Jesus that brings forgiveness. It’s exactly what he had heard the Lord Himself say on numerous occasions (John 3:16, John 6:28-29, John 6:38-40). Later Peter would say,“Salvation is found in no one else, for there is no other name under Heaven given to men by which we must be saved” (Acts 4:12). Believing in Jesus means believing He was the Son sent by the Father to die for the sins of the people. He was both Lord and Christ. Then Peter told them to be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ. According to my concordance, the Greek phrase translated “in the name of” invokes every thought or feeling that is aroused in the mind by mentioning, hearing, or remembering the name being referenced. It can be used to establish one’s rank or authority, and to convert a request into a command. A servant acting in the name of his master had the authority of the master himself. To be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ is to recognize His authority to do what He came to do and promised to do (to save us from our sins). It means we believe He has such authority and has exercised it on our behalf. That’s why John’s baptism didn’t bring either salvation or the gift of the Holy Spirit (Acts 19:1-7). He had no authority to save us from our sins. Only Jesus had that authority (Mark 2:6-12). And finally Peter promised them the Holy Spirit. There’s only one way to receive the Holy Spirit and that’s to believe that the Lord’s death paid the full price for all our sins as confirmed by His resurrection. The Holy Spirit was not given to anyone until the Lord’s atoning sacrifice had been perfected in His victory over death (John 7:37-39, John 20:19-23) . Somewhere in our past, legalistic preachers began teaching that repentance means to change our behavior, and without a change in behavior there was no repentance. But if that was the case, the phrase “repent and be saved” would require us to stop sinning before we could ask God to save us. (It amazes me that some of the same preachers who preach this also lead their congregations in singing “Just As I Am” while issuing an altar call.) In his answer to their question, “Brothers, what shall we do?” Peter did not invoke the Law or their traditions, nor did he set forth any other preconditions. He simply said, “Repent, be baptized, and receive the Holy Spirit.” To his Jewish listeners these few words carried the full impact of the Gospel of Grace. A Matter Of Perspective I’m convinced that the whole debate over whether Peter taught a different Gospel than Paul can be resolved by a clearer understanding of the vastly different perspective of their two audiences. Peter didn’t speak of the blood because the Jews already understood the idea of shedding innocent blood for the remission of sins. Untold thousands of innocent animals had shed their blood in the previous two millennia to set the sins of the people aside and stay the hand of judgment against them. Their Temple was called a house of blood because at times blood had flowed like a river from beneath the altar. They needed to change their minds and understand that all those animals they sacrificed were but a temporary substitute for the sacrifice the
