Carson [Pdf Read] (Scandalous The Cross and Resurrection of Jesus) DA Carson is a master Bible scholar but able to put things so clearly and succinctly for laypeople I love how he points out the literary use of irony in Matthew His exegesis of Romans 321 26 is worth the price of the book and his treatment of the story of Lazarus is phenomenal This book is a treasure a combination of exegesis and rich devotional thoughts A must read

    [Pdf Read] (Scandalous The Cross and Resurrection of Jesus) Overall Carson takes us from understanding who Christ is the importance of His atoning work on the cross His triumph over Satan His triumph over death and even His triumph over doubt Each chapter is firmly grounded in Scripture and Carson does a good job of letting the reader know how it affects their life today Carson doesn’t shy away from saying things that the intelligentsia of modern liberalemergent Christianity t

D.A. Carson Ý 5 review Read & Download Ø Scandalous The Cross and Resurrection of Jesus 105 Eral readers will appreciate how Carson deftly preserves weighty theology while simultaneously noting the broader themes of Jesus' death and resurrection Through exposition of five primary passages of Scripture Carson helps us to fully understand and appreciate the scandal of the cross. DA Carson can preachI was introduced to this preaching when he spoke at my church s Bible conference a few years back on the person of Jesus Christ I was blown away by Dr Carson s intellect his ability to point out things in scripture I d never seen before his passion for Christ and the witty entertaining way in which he was able to do all of this He simply made the Bible come alive to me in way I d never experienced beforeHis new book Scandalous The Cross and Resurrection of Jesus did exactly the same thingCarson examines 5 different texts from the Bible from Matthew 27 Romans 3 Revelation 12 John 11 and John 20 These are heavy passages dealing with the crucifixion of Jesus his raising of Lazarus from the dead and the disciple Thomas doubting The other passages tackle the center of the whole Bible Romans 3 which connects the Old and New Testaments as well John s prophetic visions in Revelation Difficult parts of the Bible to explain to say the least but Carson is able to plumb the depths of these theologically packed passages in such an insightful and concise way as to make them manageable and beautiful The book is simply a feast for those who love to hear the Bible taught passionately and clearlyIt s hard to pick a favorite chapter as they were all fantastic but I really enjoyed the discussion of the stories of Lazarus and Thomas We ve heard these stories so many times it would be easy for them to feel familiar and less powerful than they should Carson s talent doesn t allow for this response He brings you right into the settings of the passages and you feel like you re watching the story unfold before you for the first time seeing the actions of Jesus in completely new ways I ve yet to find many other authors who have this skill for making the scriptures so real to meThese 5 chapters were given as sermons at Mars Hill Church in Seattle back in December of 2008 as part of a Resurgence Conference I was lucky enough to catch these sermons online I don t always enjoy reading a book after hearing the material preached live but the writing in Scandalous makes you feel like you re sitting there talking personally to Dr Carson as he explains and expounds upon the deep truths of scripture He simply has a gift for exposition and it shines gloriously in this book

Scandalous The Cross and Resurrection of Jesus

D.A. Carson Ý 5 review Read & Download Ø Scandalous The Cross and Resurrection of Jesus 105 How are Christians to approach the central gospel teachings concerning the death and resurrection of Jesus The Bible firmly establishes the historicity of these events and doesn't leave their meanings ambiguous or open to interpretation Even so there is an irony and surprising strangen. Based on a series of lectures DA Carson delivered at Seattle s Mars Hill Church in 2008 this book investigates five aspects of Christ s crucifixion and resurrection that are particularly scandalous After all the message of the cross is an offense Galatians 511 It is a stumbling block 1 Corinthians 123 It is folly to the weak and perishing but it is also the power of God for those who are being saved 1 Corinthians 118 Too often we glaze over the real meaning of the cross We don t realize how truly scandalous it is nor how wonderful it is for those who believe in Christ Thankfully Carson has given us this great book to teach us a familiar message in a fresh new wayThe first chapter deals with four ironies of the cross The Man Who Is Mocked as King Is the King The Man Who Is Utterly Powerless Is Powerful The Man Who Can t Save Himself Saves Others and The Man Who Cries Out in Despair Trusts God In each of these Carson shows how there are multiple layers of irony in the text and how understanding this irony enables hearers and readers to see what is really going on It provides a dimension of depth and color that would otherwise be missingIn chapter two Carson unpacks the passage which Martin Luther called the center of the whole Bible Romans 321 26 This is a very useful exposition as it clearly shows how God s justice and righteousness were displayed in the death of His Son and how the old covenant Law was fulfilled in Jesus Christ making way for the availability of an undeserved righteousness apart from the Law Perhaps most helpful is the careful differentiation explained between the definitions of propitiation and expiation These are some weighty theological concepts made accessible in layman s termsThe third chapter deals with Satan s war against the offspring of the woman in Revelation 12 Carson shows how Christ s death and resurrection defeated Death and Satan and gives us eschatological hope In this life we will still have tribulation Satan is violently waging war against God s people because his time is short and he knows it The cross gives us confidence that we have a share in Christ s ultimate victory over evilNext Carson turns his attention to the miraculous resurrection of Lazarus from the dead There are many surprising elements to this miracle particularly when seen in light of its context directly preceding Christ s Passion week Each section of this book contains lots of great uote material but this chapter may have the most Here s one example Death is not normal when you look at it from the vantage point of what God created in the first place It is normal this side of the fall but that is not saying much It is an enemy It is ugly It destroys relationships It is to be feared It is repulsive There is something odious about death Never ever pretend otherwise But death does not have the last wordThe final chapter is especially helpful in this age of skepticism as Carson investigates the doubts of Thomas the Disciple He looks at several various causes of doubt present in both believers and nonbelievers and how each cause reuires different solutions The tone is optimistic as we see the conversion of Thomas doubt into adoration and discover that even the most hardened doubters still have the gift of salvation by grace through faith open to them The message of the cross when understood and accepted fully truly changes everythingA relatively short book 176 pages and written in a very conversational manner Scandalous has the feel of a light reading book even while covering very heavy material Carson does an excellent job of maintaining the reader s interest throughout I highly recommend this book to any believer no matter how well versed you may think you are in the cross This is one message we can never hear too much
