Christians in Seattle?
Christ Our Life
But since the Lord not only reminds us of this great gift of his goodness, as we formerly explained, but passes it, as it were, from hand to hand, and urges us to recognise it, he, at the same time, admonishes us not to be ungrateful for the kindness thus bestowed, but rather to proclaim it with such praise as is meet, and celebrate it with thanksgiving. Accordingly, when he delivered the institution of the sacrament to the apostles, he taught them to do it in remembrance of him, which Paul interprets, "to show forth his death," (1Co 11: 26). And this is that all should publicly and with one mouth confess that all our confidence of life and salvation is placed in our Lord's death, that we ourselves may glorify him by our confession, and by our example excite others also to give him glory. Here, again, we see what the aim of the sacrament is, namely, to keep us in remembrance of Christ's death. When we are ordered to show forth the Lord's death till he come again, all that is meant is, that we should with confession of the mouth, proclaim what our faith has recognised in the sacrament, viz., that the death of Christ is our life.

Of Esther and Peter
Dr. Jobes models her love and depth of understanding of God's Word and her love for Christ. Her expertise in the books of Esther and 1 Peter will be launching points for understanding how we can approach scripture more effectively. Why was it written the way it was? How does it fit with the rest of scripture? What difference does the cultural backdrop make? How does it point us to Christ? What does it mean for us today?

October 19 7:45 p.m. Reading Esther in Its Redemptive-Historical Context
