Questions for this lesson

There is a reason why Jerusalem is considered the birthplace of Christianity and it is not just because Christ died there. By the Lord’s command Jerusalem was the first place evangelized with the gospel. By the Holy Spirit’s direction, Jerusalem was the location of Pentecost. And by the apostles’ obedience, Jerusalem was the birthplace of the church. (Paul Ellis)

3. God’s plan for all nations began in Jerusalem.

Paul’s reasons for hope and praise–

God’s plan to extend grace to the non-Jews demonstrates great wisdom and compassion to all people.

He also shows mercy toward the Jews who hardened their hearts when He says, “All Israel WILL be saved.”

After His resurrection, Jesus said,

Scripture says that the Messiah would suffer and that he would come back to life on the third day. Scripture also says that by the authority of Yeshua people would be told to turn to God and change the way they think and act so that their sins will be forgiven. This would be told to people from all nations, beginning in the city of Jerusalem. (Luke 24:46-47 NOG, emphasis added)

Then, before he ascended to heaven, he said it again. “Be my witnesses in Jerusalem …” (Acts 1:8b).

4. All nations will come and worship (Psalms 86:9)

Because many of the Jews rejected God’s own Son and His followers, God temporarily kept the Jews in the dark and extended His mercy to all non-Jews. At a predetermined time, God will remove the veil from their eyes and the Jews will also receive Jesus as their Redeemer.

5. Praise and gratitude

Because of God’s plan, even though I do not have Jewish ancestors–

the mystery … hidden for ages, generations and generations, is now being revealed to His holy ones. He decided to make known to them [which includes me] His blessing to the nations; the glorious riches of this mystery is the indwelling of the Anointed in you! The very hope of glory. (Colossians 1:25-27 Voice, emphasis added)

As if that wasn’t enough, I’m so thankful to know and feel God’s presence every day.

With my own eyes, I see Creator God’s handiwork in the sky every morning, noon and night.
