The Ministry of Jesus I (Expository Lessons)
The New Disciples Bring Others Andrew went immediately and brought his brother to Jesus. He said, “We have found the Messiah.” Messiah means “The anointed one.” There was a general expectation at this time of a Great Deliverer. The preaching of John had called attention to the promised Messiah. These disciples now rejoiced in the hope that they had found him. Andrew did not argue, he simply stated the fact. When he found Jesus he wanted to share with his brother his new treasure. When Jesus saw Simon, he gave him a new name. He said, “Thou shalt be called Cephas,” which is by interpretation, a stone. Peter is the Greek word for stone or rock. Christ is the great foundation stone of the church. The promise here is that the character of Christ would be manifest in Simon Peter.
The Ministry of Jesus II (Expository Lessons)
No event in all history is so well attested as the resurrection of Christ. He walked and talked with the disciples. He ate with them. He appeared to individuals. He appeared to small groups. He appeared to more that five hundred brethren at one time. He even appeared to this group in Jerusalem and ate with them. We have a living Savior. He came to earth and was clothed in human flesh. He was tempted in all points like as we are tempted. He died for our sins. He was raised for our justification. He appeared to his disciples for forty days and ascended back to heaven. He now rules and reigns in glory and in the hearts of those who trust and obey him. The resurrection of Christ is the foundation of our fondest hopes and dreams, our “help in ages past, our hope in years to come.”
