Sweet Sunday Sermon – The word “Redeem” as found in the New Testament

Submitted by Dr. GP

In the New Testament we see that all people need redemption, since they are all slaves, being all sold under sin and in spiritual bondage. Jesus made this abundantly clear to the Jewish leadership of his day (John 8:31-36).

The Coming of the Redeemer and the accomplishment of Redemption is recorded in Matthew, Mark, Luke and John in accordance to the teaching of Galatians 4:4 that in the fullness of time, God sent his son into the world to redeem a people for himself. The Fall of man established man’s desperate need for redemption, and God had carefully and thoroughly prepared the world for the coming of the Redeemer in the balance of the Old Testament.

The four gospels are the inspired eye-witness accounts of the life, death and resurrection of the Saviour. Christ came to reveal the glory of God in human flesh, “the image of the invisible God, pre-eminent over all creation” (Colossians 1:15). He came to proclaim the kingdom of God and teach us about the way of salvation (Matthew 3:2). He came to conquer Satan and to destroy his work (Col. 2:15; I John 3:8). But above all, he came to die for sins and to rise triumphantly from the grave to display his victory. He came to redeem us! (John 3:16,17).

    He is a character from Alex Hailey’s Roots which everyone from our generation watched when they were Children.

    You could say all Blacks in the Western Hemisphere who are a part of the African Slave Diaspora have a Kunte Kinte or two in their family tree, There must be millions of similar stories. It’s the Poor Man’s Story, it never ends in glory, it only leads to another dance story that you can hear on the radio station.

    “Hard to imagine Barbados was referred to as “The Cradle of Truth” once upon a time.”
    ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

    But it also equally as easy to imagine Barbados being the birthplace of the model of black chattel slavery in the Americas and, allegedly, exported to America with Virginia being the first state to be infected with the virus via the ‘fictitious’ Willie Lynch Letter: “The Making of a Slave”.

    The Truth about Barbado(e)s did not begin in 1627 and ended in 1966.

    I thought there was a move afoot to say America begun in 1619 with the advent of the slaves in Virginia, well before any Englishman even set foot on Barbados!!!!

    In America it is called “Reframing” history!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    It is called the 1619 fairy tale!!

    You are a medical doctor…that means University study. How did you manage that? I thought your religious order were prohibited from attending University. One local fella, a Corbin, was a Barbados Scholar (after you and JK), and to attend Uni his family was ‘read out’.

    I THINK THE CORBINS BELONGED TO THE EXCLUSIVE OR CLOSED BRETHREN- THAT WOULD BE EXPECTED OF THEM . I GREW UP IN THE ANGLICAN CHURCH UNTIL 16, AFTERWHICH I WENT TO A VERY GOOD BAPTIST CHURCH.

    I FIRST ATTENDED A PLYMOUTH BRETHREN ASSEMBLY. WHEN I WENT TO MED SCHOOL IN JAMAICA. HAD A LOT OF FUN TOO

    THE EXCLUSIVE OR CLOSED BRETHREN AROSE FROM J N DARBY BEING AN AUTOCRAT WHO CARRIED THE CONCEPT OF “SEPARATION” MUCH TOO FAR, DESPITE BEING WARNED BY OTHERS IN THE FOUNDING GROUP OF THOSE WHO MET AT DUBLIN BRISTOL AND PLYMOUTH

    WHEN I WAS A LITTLE BOY, THEY HAD A MEETING ROOM IN OISTINS AT THE JUNCTION OF HIGHWAY 7 AND THE OISTINS HILL RD, THEY ALSO HAD A MEETING ROOM ON RENDEZVOUS MAIN ROOM WHICH GOT INCORPORATED IN EARLY EDITIONS OF AN EXPANDING RENDEZVOUS SUPERMARKET
    THEY ARE ALMOST OBSOLETE. IN BARBADOS NOW

    THATS THE MOST I KNOW ABOUT THE EXCLUSIVE BRETHREN IN BIM EXCEPT THAT I KNOW THAT A NUMBER OF THEM WERE AT HC IN MY DAY—–HUNTES CORBINS PILES

    MOST OF THE WHITE BOYS WHO OPTED OUT OF PRAYERS WERE EXCLUSIVE BRETHREN

    “So, Jewish Christians works just fine.
    Since the Apostles were Jewish and became the first to be called Christians at Antioch then it follows that the Apostles were the first Jewish Christians, or Asian Christians, or Middle Eastern Christians.”
    +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

    So you fancy being ancestrally descended from the Jews of the Bible who were enslaved, as the fable goes, for over 400 years in ‘black’ Egypt?

    Then what does that make the same Jewish apostles who became so-called Christians?

    Formerly enslaved Egyptian ‘black’ Jews from the cursed tribe of Ham?

    Faced with that more realistic scenario we are sure you would now try to distant yourself as far away from being a ‘blackened’ Jew as you would wish to identify with any ancestors of voodoo high priests in Benin so widely represented in modern-day Haiti.

    was not aware of the multiple variations. BESIDES CLOSED AND OPEN, THEY WERE VARIATIONS BECAUSE OF SEVERAL SPLINTERS WITHIN THESE MAIN GROUPS

    AMONG THE OPEN BRETHREN THERE ARE TWO GROUPS IN BIM, A GROUP OF 13, ASSEMBLIES AND THEN ANOTHER GROUP OF AT LEAST 5 THAT I KNMOW ABOUT

    And yes, I heard my mother call them the closed brethren, she used to work for one of them.

    Sounds like an un-chartered boat full of hypocrites sailing on a turbulent uncharted sea of conflict in search of one God.

    Doesn’t that remind you of the same thing which happened among the Jews and which gave rise to the Jesus (Joshua) cult?

    My Great Grandfather (1856 – c.1936) and his family were members years ago.

    Lived in Oistins above Scarborough on the land side.

    Just before the fork taking you up to Below Rock, or Below the Rock as it appears on old maps.

    Neighbour was Mr. Pinierho, almost certainly a descendant of an early Sephardic Jewish family … like me.
