12.What are the facts of the Gospel in the sequence they took place historically?

        We have been looking closer at what Jesus accomplished in his life, death and resurrection.The events and accomplishments referred to as the Gospel represent the goal toward which revelation was moving.Therefore the Gospel of Jesus Christ is the key that unlocks all Scripture.It is in the Gospel that the glory of God and of Christ is most clearly seen (2 Cor.4:4-6).

Discuss what the figurative language of 2 Cor.4:4-6 is getting at.





Now, let us ask, "Why?"

The Bible speaks of actions (what one does or doesn't do), motives (why one does or not, what governs one's actions, moves him), attitudes (how or in what spirit one goes about doing or not doing), and beliefs (ideas taken into oneís heart that govern his perception).

13.What motivated God to sacrifice Jesus for our sin?What does God reveal about His own heart?

1 Tim.2:4









Define mercy. [opposite of propitiation]

Define grace. [not for the righteous]

Dialog with Ex.33:18-19; 34:5-7 in considering Godís character †††Israel was encamped near Mt. Sinai and unable to approach God in his holiness (Ex.19).While Moses was on the mountain receiving the law to sanctify the Israelites as God's own possession, many of the people turned away from God by worshipping a false god and engaging in other pagan practices.God called upon the faithful to execute His judgment by slaying their relatives, companions, and neighbors who are rebelling against Him (32:25-29).

But, God was still angry, so Moses interceded for the people and asked Him to forgive their sin or blot him out of his book with along them.God answered that He would blot out the ones who sin against Him and in the day He visits, He will visit their sin upon them.The Lord showed His continuing displeasure by sending a plague on the people.

God told Moses that He would send His angel to lead them to the land He promised to Abraham and drive out its inhabitants, but that He Himself would not go up among them lest He destroy them (32:30-33:6).Moses again spoke to God and argued that it was God's presence with them that distinguished His people from all others (33:12-17).The narrative continues as Israel left the Sinai wilderness (Num.10:11).]

Moses' requested to know God, that God show him His ways (33:13) and glory (v.18)."I will make My goodness pass before you and proclaim My name 'the Lord.'I will be gracious to whom I will be gracious, and will show mercy to whom I will show mercy (v.19)." "the Lord God merciful and gracious, longsuffering and abounding in goodness and truth, keeping mercy for thousands, forgiving iniquity and transgression and sin, but who will by no means clear the guilty, visiting the iniquity of the fathers on the children and the children's children to the third and forth generation."Moses' response is worship (34:5-9).
