Lesson 3 Questions Aug.23,2016

Rev. Joy Maestas

1. Whywas the Christian message given first to the Jews?



Since the Jews were Gods chosen people hewanted them to receive the Good News 1st as an act of redemption toreturn them to their original relationship with God. It was foretold in the OldTestament that a savior would be sent to them and then he would save the world.2 Kings 13:5 And the Lord gave Israel a savior, so that they went out fromunder the hand of the Syrians: and the children of Israel dwelt in their tents,as beforetime. (KJV)

Isaiah 19:20 And it shall be for a sign andfor a witness unto the Lord of hosts in the land of Egypt: for they shall cryunto the Lord because of the oppressors, and he shall send them a savior, and agreat one, and he shall deliver them.(KJV)





2. Whatwas the nature of the Jerusalem Church and at what point did the Jerusalemchurch begin to lose its prominence?



The Jerusalem Church was the headquartersof the Christianity. All the Apostles’ were living there at the time of Pentecostand they would teach in the temple. Whenthe Romans took over Jerusalem to quell the Jewish revolt of A.D.66 and burnedthe temple down in A.D.70 the Christians fled across the Jordan River and thishelped spread the teachings all over. Itwas a good thing this happened as it forced them to go further than they mighthave.



3. Howdoes the spread of the Christian message in Judea and Samaria and ultimately tothe Gentiles illustrate the fact that Christianity is oriented toward missions?.



Jesus set the example by traveling from townto town and sharing the Good News, he gave the Apostles the job of continuingto spread this Good News. When the earlyChristians were forced into Judea, they remembered this and how he treated theSamarian woman, who was considered a ½ breed. When Peter had his breakthrough about talking and eating with Gentilesthis lead the way for when Paul was saved and was told to take the message tothe Gentiles. One of the definition’s ofMissions is “a task or job that someone is given to do” (Merriam-Websteron-line)
