I’m looking at doing a quarterly study for Bible school in SJCampos on “The imperatives of Christ.” Or call it “The commands of Jesus.” A restricted list, obviously. Maybe with an introductory lesson on the nature of the imperative in the gospel, necessity of obedience, something along those lines.
There’s no attempt here to make Christ’s words weightier than his words through the apostles and prophets, no two-tiered canon, no red-letter Bible ideas. Though his actions and teachings, since he is our Lord and Savior, while he was on the earth, do hold a special interest for the disciple, don’t you think?
I’m making my list of commands. So here’s my question: What imperatives or commands of Christ would be of special interest to study in a congregation, for Christians today?
