The Unique Role Of Andrew In Jesus’ Ministry

January 17th, 2018 by Egbert F Bhatty

Gospel Christianity / Jesus’ Christianity — Christianity as Preached And Practiced By Our Lord Jesus Christ, And Recorded In Matthew, Mark, Luke, And John.

Church Christianity — Christianity As Taught By Catholic, Protestant, And Evangelical Churches, And Recorded In Their Separate Catechisms.

Jesus’ Ministry began with His Baptism.  That is the accepted view.  

But, what is insufficiently realized that after His debilitating wilderness / desert experience it was Andrew who turned Him on.  

In Matthew, Jesus is Baptized [Matthew 3:13-17]; then, led into the wilderness [Matthew 4:1-11].  

In Mark, Jesus is Baptized [Mark 1:9-11]; then, driven into the wilderness [Mark 1:12-13].  

In Luke, Jesus is Baptized [Luke 3:21-22]; then, led into the wilderness [Luke 4:1-13.  

John does not record Jesus being led / driven / by The Holy Spirit into the wilderness — to be tempted of The Devil.  Instead, John records Andrew finding Jesus.  

“We have found The Messias,…..” [John 1:41 KJV — King James Version] — Andrew informs his brother Peter.  And, then, brings Peter to Jesus [John 1:42].  

Upon seeing whom Jesus performs the first work of His Earthly Ministry.  He ordains Peter [John 1:42].  

A stone, according to The Protestants.  

A rock, according to The Catholics.  

Question — how did Andrew know that Jesus is The Messiah?  

Next question — why did Peter accept this distinctive mark?

Andrew And Peter Launched Jesus’ Ministry — John’s Gospel

Church Christianity — Christianity As Taught By Catholic, Protestant, And Evangelical Churches, And Recorded In Their Separate Catechisms.

John and The Synoptics present Jesus’ Ministry differently.  

Matthew, Mark, and Luke, simply list The Apostles.  

Matthew in Matthew 10:1-4.  Mark in Mark 3:13-19.  And, Luke in Luke 6:13-16.  

John, however, gives us more insight.  In John 1:35-42.  Which records how Andrew and Peter launched Jesus’ Ministry.  

John 1 [KJV — King James Version]:

35 Again the next day after John stood, and two of his disciples;

36 And looking upon Jesus as he walked, he saith, Behold the Lamb of God!

37 And the two disciples heard him speak, and they followed Jesus.

38 Then Jesus turned, and saw them following, and saith unto them, What seek ye? They said unto him, Rabbi, (which is to say, being interpreted, Master,) where dwellest thou?

39 He saith unto them, Come and see. They came and saw where he dwelt, and abode with him that day: for it was about the tenth hour.

40 One of the two which heard John speak, and followed him, was Andrew, Simon Peter’s brother.

41 He first findeth his own brother Simon, and saith unto him, We have found the Messias, which is, being interpreted, the Christ.

42 And he brought him to Jesus. And when Jesus beheld him, he said, Thou art Simon the son of Jona: thou shalt be called Cephas, which is by interpretation, A stone. 

Yes!  It was the action of Andrew and Peter that launched Jesus’ Ministry!  

We can only wonder: how would Jesus would have commenced His Ministry — if Andrew and Peter had not acted.

Who Were The First Disciples Of Jesus?

January 13th, 2018 by Egbert F Bhatty

Gospel Christianity / Jesus’ Christianity — Christianity as Preached And Practiced By Our Lord Jesus Christ, And Recorded In Matthew, Mark, Luke, And John.

Church Christianity — Christianity As Taught By Catholic, Protestant, And Evangelical Churches, And Recorded In Their Separate Catechisms.

We know who The Apostles were.  Please see previous post for context.  

But, who were His Disciples?  Were they all men — like The Apostles?  

A reading of The Gospels, the discovery of non-Canonical texts, and Gospel scholarship, suggests that the majority of Jesus’ Disciples were Women.  

Karen L King, Professor of New Testament Studies and The History of Ancient Christianity at the Harvard Divinity School is certain of it.  See    http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/pages//frontline/shows/religion/first/women.html .  

And, the reason is simple.  

These Women were mostly widows.  Banished from their husbands’ home after his death.  And, being uneducated and untrained, had only one career path in the First Century of Jesus’ time — Prostitution.  

Then came Jesus.  Preaching Equality; and Practicing Community.  

And, widows particularly, and some differently-abled men, came to Him.  And, became part of His Community.  They partook, as Equals, of food and shelter that The Jesus Community shared — as Equals.  And, became His earliest Disciples.  

The funding for The Jesus Enterprise came from rich women.  

Not all the women who followed Jesus were widows.  Though most were.  And, were part of a culture and custom, wherein rich widows supported religious teachers.  

They were, these rich widows, of course, subject to exploitation by these religious teachers.  

Jesus railed against them.  In Matthew 23:14 He lets loose one of his Woes — “Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye devour widows’ houses,…..”  

Jesus, of course, was different.  Because of His Preaching of Equality; and, His Practice of Community.  

And, so, women from every strata of society supported Him, and followed Him.  

Luke 8:2-3 records — quite blandly — that Mary Magdalene [widowed], Joanna [married], and Susanna [unmarried?], “ministered unto Him of their substance.”

The Twelve Simple Men Who Became The Apostles

January 11th, 2018 by Egbert F Bhatty

Gospel Christianity / Jesus’ Christianity — Christianity as Preached And Practiced By Our Lord Jesus Christ, And Recorded In Matthew, Mark, Luke, And John.

Church Christianity — Christianity As Taught By Catholic, Protestant, And Evangelical Churches, And Recorded In Their Separate Catechisms.

The Twelve simple men who became The Apostles were — 

Peter [Matthew 10:2] a fisherman, 

Andrew [Matthew 10:2], Peter’s brother, also a fisherman, 

James Zebedee [Matthew 10:2] a fisherman, 

John Zebedee [Mathew 10:2], James’ brother, also a fisherman, 

Philip [Matthew 10:3], a fisherman,

Bartholomew [Nathanael?] [Matthew 10:3], a farmer,

Thomas [Matthew 10:3], a fisherman,

Matthew [Matthew 10:3], a tax collector, also the Gospel writer, 

James Alphaeus [Matthew 10:3], a fisherman, 

Thaddeus [Matthew 10:3], Jesus’ half-brother, a carpenter,

Simon the Canaanite [Matthew 10:4], a scholar of the Law,

Judas Iscariot [Matthew 10:4], an accountant.

All of them were Disciples first; and, were later, appointed The Apostles.

Matthew records this appointment in February AD 27 [Reese p1305].

Mark in April AD 27 [Reese p1281].

Luke in April AD 27 [Reese p1282].

John in February AD 25 [Reese p1264] — John explicates the Deity of Jesus, and, therefore, does not record Jesus’ Life and Work in the way The Synoptics do.  Though he does record, in a way very different from The Synoptics, the appointment of Andrew [John 1:40], his brother Peter [John 1:42], Philip [John 1:43], and Nathanael [Bartholomew?] [John 1:47]

The reason for the difference in the appointment dates in The Synoptics and John is that The Synoptics are descriptive, while John is reflective.  And, this different point of view leads to a different arrangement and presentation of the events in Jesus’ life.

Jesus Rejected The Church, Chose Twelve Simple People, As The Vehicle For His Ministry

Church Christianity — Christianity As Taught By Catholic, Protestant, And Evangelical Churches, And Recorded In Their Separate Catechisms.

Jesus rejected The Church as the vehicle for His Ministry.  

In fact, He considered The Church as so harmful to Gospel Ministry that He did not establish —

An Ecclesial Organization.  

Or, build a Building.  

Or, create a Congregation.  

Or, even, devise a Mass or Prayer Service.  

Instead, He used Twelve simple people — no Divinity degrees — no Theological training — to Teach The Gospel Message.  

They are, collectively, identified as Fishermen.  

But, in fact, only eight of The Twelve were Fishermen.  

The other four had varying occupations.  As Farmer, Tax Collector, Carpenter, Scholar.  

So, there we have it!  

No Popes, no Cardinals, no Bishops, no Priests, — for Jesus.  Just Twelve simple people to Spread The Good News.

Why Jesus Rejected The Church As The Vehicle For Ministry

January 7th, 2018 by Egbert F Bhatty

Gospel Christianity / Jesus’ Christianity — Christianity as Preached And Practiced By Our Lord Jesus Christ, And Recorded In Matthew, Mark, Luke, And John.

Church Christianity — Christianity As Taught By Catholic, Protestant, And Evangelical Churches, And Recorded In Their Separate Catechisms.

There are two parts to Jesus’ Ministry.  Work; and, Worship.  

The Church does the Worship part of Ministry well.  One has to only look at the panoply of the Catholic con-celebrated Mass.  Or, the majesty of a Service at Westminster.  Or, the theatrical liturgy at Joel Osteen’s 16,800-seat Lakewood Church in Houston.  

But, The Church does not do Work well.  The Church does not Serve well.  

Yet, for Jesus, Service is the essence of His Gospel Message.  

He Served more, and Preached The Sacred less.  

Worshiped a little, but, was more into Serving people — transforming, healing, feeding, raising, calming, restoring.  

He knew, from the example of The Temple, that The Church would squat in place — in Palaces, in Chanceries, in Megachurches.  And, not move.  

Not move to be among people.  

Rather, sit in place — and require people to come to it — come to The Church, come to the Rectories.  The Church would not go out to Serve; rather, expected to be Served.  

Jesus’ worst fears have come true.  

After 2000 years, the World is only one-third Christian.  

Fast forward to August 25, 2017.  Hurricane Harvey deluged Houston.  But, Joel Osteen’s huge Lakewood Church turned away flood victims in need of food and shelter.  As Kirkland An has noted — Joel Osteen turned away — refused to Serve — “just the type of people that Jesus told his Disciples to look out for.”[1]  

But, Joel Osteen is hardly the last Christian hypocrite.  The man whom The Catholic Church says Jesus appointed to head His Church — The Pope — is no better.  

His Holiness was elected in March 2013.  In July, he visited Italy’s migrant island of Lampedusa.  Said Mass.  Made the appropriate noises.  Went back home — to Rome.  Having done not a thing to Serve the helpless.  A lack of Service by His Holiness that continues till today.  

But, it isn’t only The Catholic Church and The Evangelical Protestant Church that have refused to Serve, as Jesus Served; so, also, The Mainline Protestant Church.  

Nothing noteworthy done by the Lutherans and Anglicans and other Mainline Protestant Churches.  

Why is The Church so bad at Ministry?  [Parenthetically, The Church is not good at Mission, either.]  

Because it separates Work from Worship; Service from The Sacred.  

For Jesus, Service and The Sacred flowed rightly into one another.  Work, in Jesus’ eyes, and life, — is Worship.[2]  

And, since The Church, being an Organization, will never grasp this firm and binding and enduring connection of Service as the essence of The Sacred — Jesus rejected The Church as the vehicle for His Ministry.

Jesus did not build, or found, or institute, a Church during his 33 years of Ministry on Earth.

Jesus Rejected The Church As The Vehicle For His Ministry

January 5th, 2018 by Egbert F Bhatty

Gospel Christianity / Jesus’ Christianity — Christianity as Preached And Practiced By Our Lord Jesus Christ, And Recorded In Matthew, Mark, Luke, And John.

Church Christianity — Christianity As Taught By Catholic, Protestant, And Evangelical Churches, And Recorded In Their Separate Catechisms.

Jesus did not found or institute or build The Church.  The Apostles did that.  Circa AD 35 [Reese p1423].  Please see Acts 6:2-4 [1].  

The reason Jesus did not found The Church is because The Church resolves into an Organization.  With a Hierarchy.  With Superior and Subordinate relationships.  With Inequality at its core.  

Which directly militates against the Equality [John 13:34-35][2] that He Preached, and Practice, throughout His Ministry.  

Secondly, The Church, as an Organization, has a Mission.  A Mission that, in the final analysis, is Selfish.  The Church functions to Serve itself.  Acquire wealth.  Acquire more buildings.    

Such Clerical greed directly militates against the Selflessness embodied in the Ministry of Jesus.  Wherein is Preached Gospel Love [John 13:34-35][2].  And, not just Preached, but, Practiced — in Gospel Community / Gospel Equality [Acts 2:41-46, Acts 4:32-37][3].

The issue that confronted Jesus was — how to advance Gospel Love. 

A Selfish Church would, by its very nature, Jesus knew, not advance Love, and Love’s asseveration of Equality.  

So, Jesus rejected The Church as the vehicle for His Ministry.  Deliberately did not found or institute or build The Church.

Whom, then, did He choose to promulgate the Gospel of Love?

[1] Acts 6:2-4 — Then the twelve called the multitude of the disciples unto them, and said, It is not reason that we should leave the word of God, and serve tables.

Wherefore, brethren, look ye out among you seven men of honest report, full of the Holy Ghost and wisdom, whom we may appoint over this business.

But we will give ourselves continually to prayer, and to the ministry of the word.

[2] John 13:34-35 — 34 A new commandment I give unto you, That ye love one another; as I have loved you, that ye also love one another.

35 By this shall all men know that ye are my disciples, if ye have love one to another.

[3] Acts 2:41-46 – 41 Then they that gladly received his word were baptized: and the same day there were added unto them about three thousand souls.

42 And they continued stedfastly in the apostles’ doctrine and fellowship, and in breaking of bread, and in prayers.

43 And fear came upon every soul: and many wonders and signs were done by the apostles.

44 And all that believed were together, and had all things common;

45 And sold their possessions and goods, and parted them to all men, as every man had need.

46 And they, continuing daily with one accord in the temple, and breaking bread from house to house, did eat their meat with gladness and singleness of heart,

47 Praising God, and having favour with all the people. And the Lord added to the church daily such as should be saved.

[3] Acts 4:32-37 — 32 And the multitude of them that believed were of one heart and of one soul: neither said any of them that ought of the things which he possessed was his own; but they had all things common.

33 And with great power gave the apostles witness of the resurrection of the Lord Jesus: and great grace was upon them all.

34 Neither was there any among them that lacked: for as many as were possessors of lands or houses sold them, and brought the prices of the things that were sold,

35 And laid them down at the apostles’ feet: and distribution was made unto every man according as he had need.

36 And Joses, who by the apostles was surnamed Barnabas, (which is, being interpreted, The son of consolation,) a Levite, and of the country of Cyprus,

37 Having land, sold it, and brought the money, and laid it at the apostles’ feet.

The Concept of Ministry

January 3rd, 2018 by Egbert F Bhatty

Gospel Christianity / Jesus’ Christianity — Christianity as Preached And Practiced By Our Lord Jesus Christ, And Recorded In Matthew, Mark, Luke, And John.

Church Christianity — Christianity As Taught By Catholic, Protestant, And Evangelical Churches, And Recorded In Their Separate Catechisms.

The concept of Ministry has changed.  Drastically.  

In Jesus’ time it meant Service.  Serving others.  Serving The Other.  It was a Lay function.  

People Served other people.  Met their needs.  For food, water, shelter, clothing, visitation [sick], consolation [prisoners].  

But, in AD 35 / Acts 6 the concept of Ministry as a Lay function was abandoned by The Apostles.  It became a Clerical function.  Christian Work was severed from The Christian Word.  Service was separated from Sanctity.  

The Church, a-forming, never looked back at the example of Jesus.  

Now — Priests Taught; Lay people took care of meeting needs.  

The Catholic Church had two separate Orders — Orders that performed Service and Orders that said Mass.  In The Catholic Church the Laity was not involved with Service.  

The Reformation [1517] sought to unite The Word and The Work in The Missionary system.  

For a century after The Reformation The Mainline Protestants engorged themselves thoroughly on Catholic Church and Catholic Lay property.  Being sated, they began a determined Missionary effort against The Papists in the 17th century, and the heathens in the 18th.  

By the 19th century Protestant efforts at Ministry, as well as those of The Catholic Church, were spent.  

The Evangelical Protestant Church and the concurrent Missionary effort began in the 18th century.  

Their main success came from converting uneducated Protestants in Europe and America, and uneducated Catholics in South America.  

Evangelical Missionary efforts met sparse success in the 10/40 Window — the latitudinal band — 10 North to 40 North — across North Africa, the Middle East, and Asia.  Large populations of Muslims, Buddhists, Hindus, and Chinese lie between this band.  

Evangelical Missionary success has been mediocre among the Buddhists, Hindus, and Chinese, despite investments of huge sums of money.

Evangelical Missionary success among Muslims is non-existent.  For a simple reason.  Despite their bombast, Evangelical Missionaries are frightened to Evangelize in the Middle East.  They don’t want to lose their heads — for the sake of their God.

With the result that after 2 centuries of Christianity — only one-third of the World is Christian.  The Church — in all its three major forms — has failed. Fully, completely, thoroughly.

Its concept of Ministry has proved to be ineffective.  Can another concept of Ministry succeed?  Yes! — the way Jesus did it.

From Theology To Ministry in 2018

January 1st, 2018 by Egbert F Bhatty

Gospel Christianity / Jesus’ Christianity — Christianity as Preached And Practiced By Our Lord Jesus Christ, And Recorded In Matthew, Mark, Luke, And John.

Church Christianity — Christianity As Taught By Catholic, Protestant, And Evangelical Churches, And Recorded In Their Separate Catechisms.

In 2017 this blog largely addressed Theology.  Divinity, and Doctrine.  But, not the Doing of it.  Concentrated on Ideas.  Not Action.  

Our Lord Jesus Christ did not just Preach.  He Practiced, as well.  

The Church is quite unlike Christ.  

The Church Teaches.  But, does not Translate these Words into Transactions.  It does not Minister.  

Take, for example, Love.  The Christian Commandment [John 13:34-35].

Jesus Translated The Christian Commandment, the ethereal concept of Love, into a concrete expression — as Community [Acts 2:41-47, and Acts 4:32-37].

The Church, by contrast, has Taught Love; but, has created no sense of Community.

With grave consequences.

Our Society is fragmenting.  Our Government pits rich against the poor.  The Police kill with impunity.  The Military Brass lack integrity.  Lawyers and Doctors see human suffering as a money-pit.  And, leaders of Companies are into self-sweetening paychecks, pensions, perquisites, parachutes — at the expense of People.

Jesus conceived of a Company — and He managed two of these during His lifetime — as a Ministry.  CEOs see their Companies as a Marauder’s pen.

As is evident from this massive failure of every facet of our World that Christianity — the Teaching of The Church — has failed.  Comprehensively.

But, there is Hope.  In The Remnant.  People in every field of endeavor in America.  Who model Christ.  Who leave The Church.  And, instead, try and be Christ-like.

For whom Work is not a Mercenary operation — but, a Ministry.  Not a Conceit or a Caper, but, a Calling.

In 2018 this blog will highlight the mere Words of The Church; as, also, the Worship that being Christ-like represents.
