The subject of which day Christ died began to be hotly debated a few hundred years after His death. In the council of AD 325, the leaders of the Roman "Imperial Church" thought it to be in the best interest of the Church to disassociate their ritual celebration of the death and resurrection of Christ, which they now called "Easter," away from the annual Jewish Passover event. They actually wanted to divert attention from the Jewishness of Jesus. In doing so, these "fathers" guided Christendom away from the biblical reality as expressed by Paul-"Christ our Passover was sacrificed for us" (1 Corinthians 5:7). This error has been locked into the celebration for over 1,600 years, not only by the Roman Catholics, but also by most of Protestantism.
This is a fresh study which will have some surprises for most students of the subject, due to the controversy surrounding the chronology. It will re-align the death of Jesus Christ squarely upon the biblical setting of the Passover theme as presented in the gospels. Above all, it will demonstrate beyond any shadow of a doubt that the four gospels harmonize perfectly on the subject. It also establishes that Christ died precisely on the eve of Passover, when the lambs were being sacrificed in the Temple services.
This Bible study will - Enrich our appreciation of the Divine arrangement in redemption. Demonstrate the flawless consistency of the biblical record. Correct Christendom's traditional day celebrating Christ's death. Strengthen the Christian's new freedom in Christ.
In a society consumed with materialistic indulgence and a relentless quest for contentment, "Where s Your Focus?" reminds us that God does indeed have a purpose for each of our lives.
"Where s Your Focus?" has a threefold premise: Much of the busyness and activity of the Christian community may be without relevance or eternal significance. All ministry, indeed all activity in the church, must be evaluated in light of the biblical mandate to bear fruit for the kingdom of God.
"Where s Your Focus?" comes from the life and ministry of one who, for forty years, has traveled the parallel paths of Christian ministry and the practice of optometry. The inspiration and authority of the Bible, the lordship of Jesus Christ, and the reality of eternal life come through loud and clear. Where s Your Focus? is a welcomed resource for anyone who wants to live a life properly focused.
