Jesus’ Wedding Parallels
Series: The End
The Jewish wedding is one of the cornerstones of scripture. During the first century, the Jewish wedding customs were long recognized as a pattern for the redemption. of mankind.  This is rather hard to miss, particularly when John referred specifically to the marriage supper of the Lamb! (Revelation 19:9).  Because we live in the modern western world, we do not fully catch the significance of the ancient Jewish marriage customs and how Paul used them in parallel to the marriage of the first century church.  Jesus and Paul paid meticulous attention to detail as they use the Jewish marriage customs in scripture.  Every Christian should have a good book on ancient Jewish customs due to how often they are used in the Bible.  Today, with our guest speaker Johnnie Achord, we will examine those marriage customs and how they provide a picture to the teachings of Christ and His bride the church.

    The Message: “Christ Alone”
    In today's message in the Gospel Project, The Church on Mission, guest speaker Jonnie Achord will cover Acts chapter 15.  In this study we learn about one of the first crises the early church faced.  As Gentiles came to saving faith in Jesus, some of the Jewish believers struggled with them being saved apart from being circumcised according to the law.  In this session we see how the church handled a heated disagreement about the nature of salvation for Gentiles.  Were Gentiles saved by faith alone or must they enter into salvation through the path of obedience to the law first?  The Jerusalem Council that was convened to answer this critical question offers us a good example of how to handle desputes in the church but also was vital in preserving the Gospel message of "Christ alone."
