2017-01-25 TLS Catechism Quiz
Remember, you must give a passage for one of the questions.
1. Write the 2nd Article from “not with gold or silver…” to the end.
I believe in Jesus Christ, His only Son, our Lord; who was conceived by the Holy Spirit; born of the Virgin Mary; suffered under Pontius Pilate; was crucified, died and was buried; He descended into hell; the third day He rose again from the dead; He ascended into heaven, and is seated at the right hand of God the Father Almighty; from there He will come to judge the living and the dead. What does this mean?
I believe that Jesus Christ, true God, begotten of the Father from eternity, and also true man, born of the Virgin Mary, is my Lord.
He has redeemed me, a lost and condemned creature, purchased and won me from all sins, from death and from the power of the devil, not with gold or silver, but with His holy, precious blood and with His innocent suffering and death. All this He did that I should be His own, and live under Him in His kingdom, and serve Him in everlasting righteousness, innocence and blessedness, just as He has risen from death and lives and rules eternally.
2. What do we mean when we speak of Christ’s humiliation?
Philippians 2:6–8 – 6 Who, being in very nature God, did not consider equality with God something to be grasped, 7 but made himself nothing, taking the very nature of a servant, being made in human likeness. 8 And being found in appearance as a man, he humbled himself and became obedient to death—even death on a cross!
Christ’s humiliation means that Christ chose not to make full use of his heavenly power and glory so that he might live and die in a lowly way.
3. Of what does Christ’s resurrection assure us?
John 11:25-26 25 Jesus said to her, “I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in me will live, even though he dies; 26 and whoever lives and believes in me will never die. Do you believe this?”
a. Jesus is God.
b. Our sins are truly and completely forgiven.
c. We, too, will rise from the dead and live forever with God in heaven.
4. Of what does Christ’s ascension assure us?
John 14:2-3 2 In my Father’s house are many rooms; if it were not so, I would have told you. I am going there to prepare a place for you. 3 And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back and take you to be with me that you also may be where I am.
a. Since he returned to heaven as the conquering hero, his ascension assures us that he is our Redeemer.
b. There is a place where we will be with him forever.
5. On what basis will Christ judge all people?
Mark 16:16 16 Whoever believes and is baptized will be saved, but whoever does not believe will be condemned.
Christ will judge all people on the basis of whether they believe in him and his Word or not.
6. Why is this life of service to my Redeemer one of righteousness, innocence and blessedness?
Ephesians 4:24 24 and to put on the new self, created to be like God in true righteousness and holiness.
a. Righteousness: because he covers all my sins with the robe of his righteousness
b. Innocence: because in my new man I hate sin and desire to live a godly life.
c. Blessedness: because I gladly serve him in thankful love.
