Elpis

ElpisRomans 12:12 Excerpt The Greek word elpis in the New Testament is confident trust rather than uncertain expectation. Käsemann says that hope is “confident reaching out for the eschatological future.”41 According to Calvin (commenting on “rejoicing in hope”), Paul warned us against remaining content with earthly joys and counseled us to “raise our minds to heaven, that we may enjoy full and solid joy.”42 The apostle Peter spoke of being born anew “into a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ” (1 Pet 1:3). The reality of that hope brings joy. More Mounce, Robert H. Romans. Vol. 27. Nashville: Broadman & Holman Publishers, 1995. Print. The New American Commentary

5 And certain of them that stood there said unto them, What do ye, loosing the colt?
6 And they said unto them even as Jesus had commanded: and they let them go.
7 And they brought the colt to Jesus, and cast their garments on him; and he sat upon him.
8 And many spread their garments in the way: and others cut down bran…

The International Sunday School Lesson

Lesson forMarch 29, 2015The Son of DavidMark 11:1-11This treatment of the International Sunday SchoolLesson is written by Sam E. Stone, former editor of CHRISTIAN STANDARD. It is published in the March 22 issue of The Lookout magazine, and is also available online at www.lookoutmag.com. ______ By Sam E. Stone  The “triumphal entry” of Jesus into Jerusalem is significant for many reasons. It is one of the few events in his life that is recorded in all four Gospels. It marked the beginning of his last week on the earth. For three years he had taught and lived God’s message for the world. While his popularity was extremely high among the common people, the religious leaders took a different view. They saw him as a troublemaker. Although Jesus was always true to Scripture, he did not go along with their faulty interpretations and misapplications of Scripture. They were headed on a collision course. The King Prepares | Mark 11:1-6 Jesus often stayed just outside of Jerusalem in Bethany. Here L…
