PROCLAMATION “Make straight the way of the Lord.” John the Baptist What do we know about John the Baptist from the Infancy Narratives? (Lk 1:41-45; 67-80) John was a Levite. His ministry fulfilled the prophecy that Elijah would return and “turn the hearts” of the people. Clothing & Food: camel’s hair, leather belt, locusts and wild honey Message: “Repent, for the Kingdom of Heaven is at hand.” Ministry: baptism and forgiveness of sins through water
BAPTISM OF JESUS Read Matthew 3:13-17 Why did Jesus want to be baptized by John? What did he mean by “it is fitting for us to fulfill all righteousness”? Connect Jesus to humanity Continue to connect Jesus as the heir of David’s Kingdom Promised land… to… Eternal Life New Adam
TEMPTATION IN THE DESERT Read Luke 4:1-13 Jesus fasts for 40 days – what OT events involved the number 40? Flood – 40 days and nights Fasts of Moses and Elijah – 40 days Israel in the wilderness – 40 years Overcomes temptations that humans could not. Hunger – bodily temptation – Jesus shows that God’s plan is more important Testing God by misquoting Scripture Glorious kingship
MIRACLES: NATURE & HEALING Wedding at Cana (John 2:1-11) - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xaWI4-n0z_0https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xaWI4-n0z_0 First miracle Prefigures the Eucharist and the Wedding Feast of the Lamb Shows Mary as our intercessor Cleansing of the Leper (Mark 1:40-45) - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H7oJ3SDmVTAhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H7oJ3SDmVTA Healing miracles like the cleansing of the leper made some people think that Jesus was the Messiah – who would heal the sick. Healing the Paralytic (Mark 2:1-12) - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0LqHYkGU4Zghttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0LqHYkGU4Zg Demonstrates the belief that sickness was caused by sin. The forgiveness of sins would come with healing. Only God could forgive sins, and only the priests could declare that the sins were forgiven by God. Healing of a Blind Men (John 9:1-41) Jesus pointed out that not all sickness was caused by sin. The blind man knew that Jesus was Lord (Faith) and the scribes could not.
CASTING OUT DEMONS Mark 1:21-28 Should show that Jesus is the Messiah, the Lord Pharisees and other leaders don’t believe it, and say that Jesus is casting out demons by demonic power. Only God is strong enough to cast out Satan.
EATING WITH SINNERS AND OUTCASTS Tax collectors - hated because they stole people’s money – considered sinners Matthew/Levi Zacchaeus Women – Jewish men did not speak to women in public Samaritans – Jewish people did not interact with Samaritans Jesus’ relationship with sinners and outcasts demonstrates that Jesus’ ministry and salvation is for all people.
THE TWELVE APOSTLES The same number as the tribes of Israel – the Messiah would come and restore the Kingdom of Israel “Apostle” – means “ones who are sent” – they are to go out and be the leaders of the Church, the new Israel. Most of the apostles were of the lower class
THE 12 APOSTLES Simon Peter Andrew James (The Greater), Son of Zebedee) John, “the Beloved Disciple”, son of Zebedee Philip Bartholomew (Nathanael) Thomas (Didymus) Matthew (Levi) James (the Lesser, son of Alphaeus) Judas (Thaddaeus), son of James Simon “the Zealot” Judas Iscariot – replaced by Matthias after the Resurrection
JESUS’ ENTRY INTO JERUSALEM Jesus knew that the journey into Jerusalem would bring about his suffering and death. However, the people there were still awaiting the Messiah they had heard was coming. He road into Jerusalem according to the prophesy of Zechariah – on a donkey. And the people greeted Jesus with palm branches and sang “Hosanna in the highest!” “Hosanna” means “Save” or “Give Salvation” Learn More about Jesus' Entry to Jerusalem Learn More about Jesus' Entry to Jerusalem
