Understanding Easter

In March we will spend three evenings preparing for Easter, looking at some of the Old Testament background to Easter; ‘Adam’, ‘Covenant’ and ‘Atonement’. 

In doing so we look to deepen our understanding, strengthen our faith, and see afresh all that Christ accomplished for us on the Cross. Indeed, amazing love! Oh what sacrifice!

Romans 5: 12-21 - Adam and Christ - Ken Douglas (Video)
Evening Service, Sunday, March 14, 2021
In Romans 5:12-21 Paul compares the first man, Adam, to the Lord Jesus Christ. In this passage we see how Adam’s sin brought death into the world for all - but we also see the remedy to sin and death that was made possible through Christ Jesus, and his obedience to the point of death on the cross. Through Adam, we all sinned and therefore face death but through Christ we can reign with Him in life.
