The crucifixion of Jesus Christ is the greatest event in history; it is the central theme of the Scriptures; it is the crisis point through which God’s eternal purpose of redemption was accomplished. It is imperative that we study and know about this critical event in the life of our Savior, Jesus Christ. In this series, we examine one particular aspect of the crucifixion: the 7 statements Jesus made while He hung on the cross. These statements, which were uttered during the greatest event in history, are clearly significant. We will look at the order in which the statements were made, the situation and purpose for each statement, and the insight each one gives us into the mind and heart of our Savior as well as the reason that He died on that cross.

These Bible messages were preached in 2020 by Pastor Gregg Bing during the morning worship service at Grace Bible Church in Fort Worth, TX.

Israel, Gentiles, the Church - Part 3

Dispensational Distinctions

While God dealt with Israel throughout most of the Old Testament, what happened when Jesus came into the world (beginning of the New Testament Scriptures)? Jesus' entrance into the world did not mark the beginning of a new covenant; He lived His entire life under the old covenant of law. His public ministry was limited to "the lost sheep of the house of Israel" to confirm the promises made to the fathers of that nation (Rom. 15:8). The only times He did minister to Gentiles, they had to come to Him understanding their place as outsiders. During this gospels period, the truth concerning the Church, the Body of Christ, remained a mystery, hidden in God.
