Christ in the Old Testament- Isaiah 12

Christ in the OT 2Pastor Kachelmeier is the guest on Issues, Etc. talking about Isaiah 12.

In this chapter, we learn to make a distinction between propitiatory sacrifice on one hand and eucharistic sacrifice on the other hand. Christ is the propitiation for our sins. His sacrifice on the cross turns the anger of God away from us. His atoning death is the one and only propitatory sacrifce that gains for us favor with God. In response, the redeemed praise and thank God for what He has done. These are called sacrifices of praise and thanksgiving, that is, eucharistic sacrifices.

In Deuteronomy 18, Moses teaches us,“Yahweh your God will raise up for you a prophet like me from among you, from your brothers. It is to Him you shall listen.” The book ends on this note, “there has not arisen a prophet since in Israel like Moses.” Jesus is the Prophet like Moses whom God the Father raised up.

Cyril of Alexandria On the Unity of Christ

Rev. Brian L. Kachelmeier

In this lecture we continue our discussion on Christology in light of St. Cyril’s text On the Unity of Christ. While the Nestorians falsely taught that the Only-Begotten Son of God assumed a man, Cyril correctly taught that the Only-Begotten Son of God became man. In other words, the Nestorians confessed that the Son of God was conjoined or connect to the man Jesus. Thus, wherever the Son of God went, the man Jesus followed. Cyril notes thus silliness of such thinking. Instead, Cyril confessed that the Son of God assumed the human nature. After all, Jesus was crucified because He claimed to be the Son of God Himself. Jesus did not claim to be connected or conjoined to the Son of God.
