Alex Kremer 10-11-20 // Peter's First Sermon; God's Sovereign Plan and Man's Responsibility; Acts 2:22-36
As we continue through Peter's first sermon, we move from the the cross as fulfillment of prophecy to God's sovereign plan.
The Jews, especially at the time of Christ, were a people with high messianic hopes, but no Messiah. Put as Peter preaches his first sermon, he makes it clear that Jesus Christ was indeed the long awaited for Messiah; and the Jews put him to death.
But counter to the Jewish beliefs regarding Messiah, Peter makes it clear, it was God's predetermined, sovereign will that Messiah would suffer and die at the hands of sinful men. And herein lies the apparent paradox; man's responsibility in the context of God's sovereign will. This apparent problem is at the core of many theological debates. If this is God's plan, then how can man be held responsible for our actions?
Thank you for listening to today's lesson. May God bless you through His Word.
