Monday Mini-Sermon

The New Testament is full of references to Jesus. The Gospels tell a four-fold account of His life and ministry, climaxing in His death to atone for our sins. Then the rest of the New Testament goes on to explain the importance of what Jesus did.

It is clear that the writers of the New Testament took Jesus seriously. Most of them gave their lives for Christ, and all of them endured great suffering and reproach for Him. They did not hold a sentimental view of Jesus, but understood Him as the Son of God sent to intervene on mankind's behalf. That was the Jesus who moved them beyond Galilee and Jerusalem, and into all the world.
