The Eunuch

Dry Tree

In the past few studies I’ve been discussing the implications of Luke 20:27-38, while Jesus never mentions the eunuch in this segment of scripture, the future of the eunuch in the next age is, nevertheless, drawn from what Jesus claimed about that age, the age of the sons of the resurrection, and I hope to show the truth of this statement in this study, which shall be drawn from Isaiah 56.

Children of the Resurrection

Children of the Resurrection - 1

In my previous study I began to highlight Jesus’ discussion with the Sadducees (Luke 20:27-38), which on the one hand called the resurrection into question, but Jesus also placed the resurrection in the context of preaching the Gospel. Many Christians think Jesus spoke of an age when men and women wouldn’t marry or have children, but this is not the point of Jesus’ reply to the Sadducees (Luke 20:34-36). The context of the discussion concerns how men become the children of God (Deuteronomy 14:1). The Sadducees argued that the resurrection couldn’t be valid, because their myth (Luke 20:27-33), if placed in the context of the levirate marriage law, made the resurrection appear as though it were a ridiculous doctrine.

Marrying and Giving in Marriage

Levirate Marriage

from Google Images

During the final week of Jesus life on the earth, he was approached by the Sadducees, who deny the authenticity of the resurrection (Luke 20:27). In their debates with the Pharisees, who did believe in the resurrection (Acts 23:6-8), they would often offer a myth or a fabricated story in an effort to express what they assumed to be a silly idea. That is, they thought the resurrection, itself, was a myth and more, simply a silly idea. Therefore, they approached Jesus with a myth (Luke 20:28-33) they no doubt used many times to prove the resurrection was a false claim. Their myth centered around the levirate marriage law in the Mosaic Covenant (Deuteronomy 25:5-10). This is the law behind the marriage of Ruth and Boaz, the great grandparents of David, the King (Ruth 4:1-10, 18-22). Read the rest of this entry »

How Not to Become a Christian

Reading John 3 causes me to pause and revisit John 1:12-13 to consider its meaning once more. Nicodemus (John 3:1) was a very religious man who followed the Law of Moses meticulously. In fact, as a Pharisee, he also followed another law—the Oral Law. Traditionally, it is supposed to have been handed down from Moses, but its source is probably among the traditions brought back from Babylon following the captivity. Read the rest of this entry »

Jesus Has Shown Us What God Is Like!

Have you ever wondered what God is like? We see him portrayed exactly as he is in the face and life of Jesus (Hebrews 1:3). Jesus is the exact representation on earth of what God is in heaven. You see, no one had ever seen God (John 1:18), so no one knew what he was like. If Jesus is God through whom all things were created, and he came into this world, lived among us, but we never recognized who he actually is, then it is pretty safe to conclude that no one really knows God without knowing Jesus.
