SheepGoatWe will begin our discussion this Sunday morning by looking a chapter 25 of Matthew’s Gospel. There Jesus provides a view of the final judgment, but surprisingly does not even mention the issue of belief. Instead, he gives examples of caring for the oppressed.

We will then look at some examples of the Greek phrase πίστεως Ἰησοῦ Χριστοῦ, often translated as “faith in Jesus Christ”, and explore how our understanding of those passages would be different if we understood that key phrase in a way that numerous biblical scholars are currently saying would be more faithful to its ancient meaning.
