The judgment and wrath that passed over the people of Israel, rested upon the shoulders of Christ crucified.
Jesus was raised on the first day of the week in order to signify that the renewal of all creation had now been irreversibly set in motion.

"The next day, that is, after the day of Preparation, the chief priests and the Pharisees gathered before Pilate and said, “Sir, we remember what that impostor said while he was still alive, ‘After three days I will rise again.’ Therefore command the tomb to be made secure until the third day; otherwise his disciples may go and steal him away, and tell the people, ‘He has been raised from the dead,’ and the last deception would be worse than the first.” Pilate said to them, “You have a guard of soldiers; go, make it as secure as you can.” So they went with the guard and made the tomb secure by sealing the stone." -Matthew 27:62-66
"On the sabbath they rested according to the commandment." -Luke23:56
Awkward angle, but the castle is dope.
Q:selfie of you now since you shaved
Coming right up.
Q:Two things, kind sir! 1) In brief, what is your theology of Evangelism? 2) What does Luke 7:1-10 mean for people today?
My theology of Evangelism is that we have been commanded by Jesus to take the Gospel to the ends of the earth and to our neighbors. I think, like all communication, we need to contextualize and speak in a way that our hearers can understand. I also think that we need to earn the right to be heard. This is why I’m not all about just random cold evangelism where you walk up to a total stranger with the sole intent of presenting the gospel. I’m not saying that that’s wrong, and I’ve done A LOT of that kind of evangelism, I’m just saying that the most effective form of evangelism is in the context of a personal relationship. Having the person we’re talking to hear the Gospel should be our ultimate motive, not our ulterior motive. So ask questions, get to know them, relate to them, love them, care about them. Because, really, the Gospel should influence all of those areas of our lives. The best kind of Evangelism is constant evangelism where you can follow up with them, invite them into your life and home, show them how the Gospel that you are proclaiming to them is the same Gospel that you are proclaiming to yourself each day, the same Gospel that is changing you and has changed you. I guess that’s my theology of Evangelism.
Luke 7:1-10 shows that Jesus is Lord over death and disease. It shows that he isn’t just doing illusions, he healed a guy from miles away. It also shows that we should have faith that he is as such and that we need to trust in his ability to heal our afflictions, and restore us from the death and disease of sin. It also shows that God’s redemption is cross-cultural and can save even the people that we dislike or despise. He can and does save our oppressors (that what a Roman Centurian was, a foreign oppressor who was occupying their land).
I hope this was helpful.
