Strand: Scripture, Israel and Jesus (SIJL9-10E1)
Levels 9 and 10
The Scriptures are central to the life, teaching and worship of the Church.
Investigate the ways in which Scriptures enlighten the beliefs and ministries of the Church and used by the Church to nurture prayer and ritual.
The Paschal Mystery refers to the fact of Christ’s Passion, Death and Resurrection and Scripture provides the faithful with the events of Jesus’ life, death and resurrection. Christians hope not only to mature in the sad experiences of life but also to survive the last and great mystery, death; to enter another life, fulfilled beyond all expectations. There is probably no other aspect of existence in which the fact of Christ’s Passion, Death and Resurrection is so relevant as in these two aspects of human experience, namely loss and death.
Examples in Scripture include but are not limited to:
Mark 15:21 – 16:8
