1 PREPARING FOR THE MESSIAH CHAPTER 2

2 THE STORY CONTINUES… TO THE SERPENT GOD SAID, “I WILL PUT ENMITY BETWEEN YOU AND THE WOMAN(NEW EVE-MARY), AND BETWEEN YOUR SEED AND HERS(NEW ADAM- JESUS); THEY WILL STRIKE AT YOUR HEAD, WHILE YOU STRIKE AT THEIR HEEL.”

3 PROTOEVANGELIUM- 1 ST GOSPEL EARLY CHURCH, SAW IN THIS THE FIRST PROPHECY OF THE MESSIAH. WHAT IS A MESSIAH? -ANOINTED ONE, PROMISED BY GOD, SAVED HUMANS FROM SIN AND DEATH. CHRISTIANS SEE JESUS AS THE MESSIAH. THE SEED OF THE NEW EVE SENT TO REPAIR THE DAMAGE MADE BY SIN. TO REMOVE THAT SIN AND THEREFORE, CRUSH/DEFEAT SATAN.

4 ALTHOUGH ORIGINAL SIN EXISTS… WE ARE NOT SLAVES TO ITS EFFECTS. ALTHOUGH WOUNDED, WE ARE NOT TOTALLY CORRUPT. WE CAN CHOOSE OBEDIENCE TO GOD’S WILL, THROUGH GOD’S GRACE WE CAN CHOOSE GOOD.

5 THE STORY OF GOD’S RELATIONSHIP WITH HIS CHILDREN IS THE STORY OF A FAMILY…

6 WHAT IS A FAMILY?

7 A FAMILY IS… PEOPLE UNITED BY FLESH, BLOOD AND A COMMON NAME. WHERE/WHEN WE LEARN TO LIVE WITH AND LOVE OTHERS. REQUIRES A CONSTANT DYING TO SELF. AND, THIS IS WHERE THE DRAMA BEGINS…

8 THE OLD TESTAMENT IS THE BEGINNING OF THE DRAMA OF THE HUMAN FAMILY. GOD’S FAMILY, THE HUMAN FAMILY, CREATED LIKE THEIR FATHER. JPII- “GOD IN HIS DEEPEST MYSTERY IS NOT A SOLITUDE BUT A FAMILY, SINCE HE HAS IN HIMSELF, FATHERHOOD, SONSHIP AND THE ESSENCE OF THE FAMILY WHICH IS LOVE.” RECORD OF A LOVE LETTER FROM THE FATHER TO HIS CHILDREN

9 THE NEW TESTAMENT HOW THE MEMBERS OF GOD’S UNIVERSAL FAMILY, THE CHURCH, ARE UNITED IN CHRIST’S FLESH AND BLOOD, THE EUCHARISTIC BANQUET. WE ARE UNITED BY A COMMON NAME THROUGH BAPTISM(REBIRTH AND ADOPTION). “IN THE NAME OF THE FATHER, SON AND HOLY SPIRIT.”
