Answer: He is our Mediator, and with his innocence and perfect holiness covers, in the sight of God, my sin, in which I was conceived and born.

 

  • Q37 What do you confess when you say that he suffered? /

Answer: During all the time he lived on earth, but especially at the end, Christ bore in body and soul the wrath of God against the sin of the whole human race.

  • Q35 What do you confess when you say: He was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the virgin Mary? /

Answer: The eternal Son of God, who is and remains true and eternal God, took upon himself true human nature from the flesh and blood of the virgin Mary, through the working of the Holy Spirit. Thus he is also the true seed of David, and like his brothers in every respect, yet without sin.

Weekly Hymn: To God Be the Glory

 

Heidelberg Catechism–

  • Q31 Why is he called Christ, that is, Anointed? /
Answer: Because he has been ordained by God the Father, and anointed with the Holy Spirit, to be our chief Prophet and Teacher, who has fully revealed to us the secret counsel and will of God concerning our redemption; our only High Priest, who by the one sacrifice of his body has redeemed us, and who continually intercedes for us before the Father; and our eternal King, who governs us by his Word and Spirit, and who defends and preserves us in the redemption obtained for us.

 

  • Q32 Why are you called a Christian? /

Answer: Because I am a member of Christ by faith and thus share in his anointing, so that I may as prophet confess his name, as priest present myself a living sacrifice of thankfulness to him, and as king fight with a free and good conscience against sin and the devil in this life, and hereafter reign with him eternally over all creatures.

 

  • Q33 Why is he called God’s only-begotten Son, since we also are children of God? /

Answer: Because Christ alone is the eternal, natural Son of God. We, however, are children of God by adoption, through grace, for Christ’s sake.

Weekly Hymn: By Faith

 

Heidelberg Catechism–

  • Q29 Why is the Son of God called Jesus, that is, Saviour? /
Answer: Because he saves us from all our sins, and because salvation is not to be sought or found in anyone else.

 

  • Q30 Do those who seek their salvation or well-being in saints, in themselves, or anywhere else, also believe in the only Saviour Jesus? /

Answer: No. Though they boast of him in words, they in fact deny the only Saviour Jesus. For one of two things must be true: either Jesus is not a complete Saviour, or those who by true faith accept this Saviour must find in him all that is necessary for their salvation.

Weekly Hymn: Praise to the Lord, the Almighty

 

Heidelberg Catechism–

Answer: That the eternal Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who out of nothing created heaven and earth and all that is in them, and who still upholds and governs them by his eternal counsel and providence, is, for the sake of Christ his Son, my God and my Father. In him I trust so completely as to have no doubt that he will provide me with all things necessary for body and soul, and will also turn to my good whatever adversity he sends me in this life of sorrow. He is able to do so as almighty God, and willing also as a faithful Father.
  • Q27 What do you understand by the providence of God? /

Answer: God’s providence is his almighty and ever present power, whereby, as with his hand, he still upholds heaven and earth and all creatures, and so governs them that leaf and blade, rain and drought, fruitful and barren years, food and drink, health and sickness, riches and poverty, indeed, all things, come to us not by chance but by his fatherly hand.

  • Q28 What does it benefit us to know that God has created all things and still upholds them by his providence? /

Answer: We can be patient in adversity, thankful in prosperity, and with a view to the future we can have a firm confidence in our faithful God and Father that no creature shall separate us from his love; for all creatures are so completely in his hand that without his will they cannot so much as move.

Week 9:

 

Weekly Hymn: Immortal, Invisible, God Only Wise

 

Heidelberg Catechism–

  • Q21 What is true faith? /
Answer: True faith is not only a sure knowledge by which I hold as true all that God has revealed to us in Scripture; it is also a wholehearted trust, which the Holy Spirit creates in me by the gospel, that God has freely granted, not only to others but to me also, forgiveness of sins, eternal righteousness, and salvation. These are gifts of sheer grace, granted solely by Christ’s merit.

 

  • Q22 What then must a Christian believe? /

Answer: All that is promised us in the gospel, a summary of which is taught us in the articles of our universal and undisputed Christian faith.

 

  • Q23 What are these articles? /

Answer: I believe in God, the Father almighty, creator of heaven and earth. I believe in Jesus Christ, his only begotten Son, our Lord, who was conceived by the Holy Spirit and born of the virgin Mary. He suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died, and was buried; he descended to hell. The third day he rose again from the dead. He ascended to 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. I believe in the Holy Spirit, the holy catholic church, the communion of saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body, and the life everlasting. Amen.

Weekly Hymn: The God of Abraham Praise

 

Heidelberg Catechism–

  • Q16 Why must he be a true and righteous man? /

  • Q17 Why must he at the same time be true God? /

Answer: He must be true God so that by the power of his divine nature he might bear in his human nature the burden of God’s wrath, and might obtain for us and restore to us righteousness and life.

 

  • Q18 But who is that Mediator who at the same time is true God and a true and righteous man? /

  • Q12 Since, according to God’s righteous judgment we deserve temporal and eternal punishment, how can we escape this punishment and be again received into favour? /
Answer: God demands that his justice be satisfied. Therefore we must make full payment, either by ourselves or through another.

Weekly Hymn: Before There Was Time

  • Q10 Will God allow such disobedience and apostasy to go unpunished? /

Answer: Certainly not. He is terribly displeased with our original sin as well as our actual sins.

  • Q7 Then where does this corrupt human nature come from? /

Answer: The fall and disobedience of our first parents, Adam and Eve, in Paradise. This fall has so poisoned our nature that we are all conceived and born in a sinful condition.

He also watches over me in such a way that not a hair can fall from my head without the will of my Father in heaven; in fact, all things must work together for my salvation.
