In this episode, we see how the two commands in Ecclesiastes 11:7-12:7 — to rejoice in life and to remember death — point us to the life and death of Jesus Christ. It is a foundational truth of Christianity that the death of Christ is God’s response to our inevitable death. While death is God’s penalty for sin, the death of Christ is God’s deliverance from sin for all who believe. It is through his death on the Cross that Jesus atones for our sin, destroys the work of the devil, and delivers us from death. In this episode we move from Ecclesiastes 11-12 to the New Testament and discover in Hebrews 2:6-9, 14-15 (as well as a number of other New Testament passages) that the death of Christ gives us resources of incredible hope and joy to face our death or the death of those we love. In Christ, you can face death because Christ loved you and gave himself up for you, dying on your behalf that you might live. So what more can death do to you? It has lost its ability to defeat us, since Christ has claimed victory over death by rising from the grave. Join us as see what Christ’s death achieved for us and how it is applied to us.
