Week 15:

 

Weekly Hymn: Psalm 24

 

Heidelberg Catechism–

  • Q36 What benefit do you receive from the holy conception and birth of Christ? /
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. Thus, by his suffering, as the only atoning sacrifice, he has redeemed our body and soul from everlasting damnation, and obtained for us the grace of God, righteousness, and eternal life.

 

  • Q38 Why did he suffer under Pontius Pilate as judge? /

Answer: Though innocent, Christ was condemned by an earthly judge, and so he freed us from the severe judgment of God that was to fall on us.
