In this message, Pastor T. C. kicks off the Living Word series by introducing the “Manifesto” of PAX’s Scripture StoryArc:
We are given Scripture as a divine instrument to become like Jesus.
In the Gospel of John, John the Baptizer is spoken of as testifying to Jesus in much the same way the Scriptures testify to Jesus. They aren’t themselves the light (essentials), but point us to the light (essentials). Moravians have understood this for generations, responding to the brutal way Christians killed one another over different views. They boldly taught that Scripture is a “Ministerial,” something that leads us to Jesus. It is Jesus who gives life (John 5.39–40).
