Series: Facing Jesus
Text: Mark 16:14-16
The ending of the Gospel of Mark appears so abrupt that apparently later writers added on to it. The so-called shorter and longer endings are found in some ancient manuscripts and have therefore been included in the scriptures. The shorter ending has a forceful, succinct statement of the Gospel as “the sacred and imperishable proclamation of eternal salvation.” This proclamation is to be to the whole world, “from east to west.” The message comes from the Risen Jesus Christ and is in reality the basis of a whole new world. We need to ask, what is the basis and the content of this “imperishable proclamation.”

The Epistle to the Ephesians
April 15, 2015
There is no more central concept in all the New Testament than that of grace. Grace as it is often said is God’s mercy and forgiveness apart from any merit on our part. Paul both expounds and defends this view through many of his epistles including the Letter to the Ephesians. The opposite of grace is not sin. Rather the opposite of grace is works as defined by the law.
