The two great events upon which the entire New Testament hangs are the resurrection of Jesus Christ and the return of the Lord.
The resurrection launched the ministry of the disciples on earth under the direction of the Messiah from heaven. The sense of urgency they had was to prepare the world for the coming judgment of the return of the Lord. This sense of urgency is apparent everywhere in the New Testament. The disciples had been told by the Lord that they had less than a generation to accomplish their mission and thus they were wasting no time in pursuing it.
Because the disciples were faithful to their mission, the world heard the message and the return of the Lord occurred exactly as promised. If you have doubts, read the post Jesus Christ Has Already Come Again, or the book Whatever Became of Jesus Christ?
The purpose of this blog is to praise Jesus Christ in terms familiar to those who read the Bible, and to help others become more familiar with the Bible. For those unfamiliar with the Bible, look to the blog A Nonchurchgoer’s Guide to Jesus and His Kingdom.
