Jesus Christ: Savior of the world – Part Seven

In My Father's House

How we view what Christ accomplished on the cross effects how we see our relationship with God and our mission on the earth. This is the seventh and final part of my Easter series, “Jesus Christ: Savior of the World.” In this series I’ve been attempting to answer three questions:

  • What does the New Testament mean by “world?”
  • What does it mean that Jesus Christ is the Savior of the World?
  • Why should this matter to us?

In this final installment we will finish looking at the last question.

Jesus Christ: Savior of the world – Part Three

In My Father's House

How is religion part of “this world” that Jesus came to save us from, and where did this whole counterfeit construct come from? This is part three in my series where we’re looking at these three questions:

  • What does the New Testament mean by “world?”
  • What does it mean that Jesus Christ is the Savior of the World?
  • Why should this matter to us?

We’re still looking at the first question. If you have not read the other two parts, I suggest you do that before continuing here.
