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 4

Dispensational Distinctions

It is almost universally accepted that the coming of the Holy Spirit on the day of Pentecost in Acts 2 marked the birthday of the Church, the Body of Christ. However, a careful look at the early chapters of this book shows clearly that the ministry of the Holy Spirit through the 12 apostles was initially limited to the Jews. In fact, they were offered the restoration of their promised kingdom if they, as a nation, would repent. Sadly, the people, led by their religious rulers, did not repent, but continued in their rejection of Christ. Once again, the truth concerning the Church, the Body of Christ, remained a mystery, hidden in God.
