Please Note: I have just completed the new Markup course run by Josue Pineda using the Markup module in Biblearc. I can thoroughly recommend this course to you when it is run again. I think for the 'Look at the Book' community 'Markup' holds more potential for online colaboration than any other method in the Biblearc suite of tools. Why do I think markup is appropiate for 'The Look at the Book' community? I think the 'mark-up' method is the closest thing to what Dr Piper does in his videos in marking up the Biblical text. I have combined LABS 84 & 85 and produced the Look-up Page and this notes page. The main Characters from the Biblical text are shown below and I have marked all the references to the characters in the Look-up text. The questions below each character are a combination of things I do not know about and questions I need to consider and meditate on before The Lord. (Other people might have other questions for the same passage of scripture). The summary below each character is my attempt to 'wrap-up' the information on each character in a few sentences. The two take-aways at the end are what I most got out of studying the text. My next step is to review the two videos for LAB 84 and 85 made by Dr Piper in his Look at the Book series, to see if: he can answer some of my questions, to see if my comments listed below are incorrect in any way to list new questions (if I do not understand something). to meditate more on the passage end soak up the wonderful truths held in these verses. Finally I did not join in the Markup course lectures (I did not fancy getting up for two hours in the middle of the night). But when viewing them I saw that for online collaboration this Mark-up method is very suitable, especially if there in no 'expert' to lead and guide the group as is needed in Acring, Bracketing etc. (Personal opinion) I would be very happy to hear from any of you, that might be interested in examining potential options for using this method for the 'Look at the Book' group. Any questions you have please just respond to the Email you got with this post. Yours in Him, Trevor Characters Elect Exiles God the Father Jesus Christ Holy Spirit Elect Exiles (Orange Rectangles) Peter is writing to the elect exiles (vs 1) They are Jewish believers in Jesus Christ being part of the Dispersion (vs 1) They are not in Israel the promised land (vs 1) They are living where are are in accordance with the foreknowledge of God the Father (vs 2) They were being sanctified by the Holy Spirit (vs 2) They were being sancified to bring them into obedience to Jesus (vs 2) They were being sanctified for the sprinkling of the blood of Jesus (vs 2) They were the object of a prayer by Peter that grace and peace would be multiplied to them by God (vs 2) They were born again into a living hope by God the Father through the resurrection of Jesus from the dead (vs 3) There was an inheritance being kept in heaven for the elect exiles (vs 3) They were being guarded by God's power through their faith for salvation (vs 3) Their salvation was ready to be revealed in the last time (vs 3) Questions What is the connection (if any) between a believer's ongoing scantification and the sprinkling of the blood of Jesus? In prayer should we ask God to give increase to others in terms of abundance (ie multiplied not added)? Do I hold onto / think about and treasure the 'things' that I have gained and inherited here on earth, and not consider enough the imperishable inheritance being kept in heaven for me? What will salvation ready to be revealed at the last time look and feel like? Consider Romans 8:18 Do I consider myself to be an elected exile, known by God before I was born on this earth, and do I consider often enough that this world is NOT my home and that I am just passing through it? Do I hunger to go to my real home to be with my heavenly Father, or do I get comfortable being in the home here on earth, and worse, not want to leave it? Do I hold lighly to the things of this world knowing that this place is not my home and that I am just passing through it? Summary The elect exiles were living exactly where God had planned for them to live, and were being sanctified by the Holy Spirit for their obedience to Jesus Christ. They were born again into a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ by God's power, and were being guarded through their faith for salvation which will be revealed in the last time. God the Father (Gold rectangles) God the Father knew before time time where each of the elect exiles would be living according to His foreknowledge (vs 1) God the Father can be blessed by us (vs 3) God the Father has great mercy (vs 3) God the Father causes us to be born again to a living hope (vs 3) God the Father uses His power to guard the elect exiles and us (vs 3) Questions What can we do that blesses God. How can we who have nothing to give Him apart for ourselves offer God a blessing? His great mercy, in saving us from the penalty that we deserve. Do I show mercy to others in my thoughs and actions? Titus 3:5 ESV 5 he saved us, e not because of works done by us in righteousness, but f according to his own mercy , by g the washing of regeneration and h renewal of the Holy Spirit, He caused us to be born again, through the living and abiding word of God (vs 23). Do I treasure the fact that God's word is so powerful that it is my daily food for living a life as a born again child of God? Summary God knew us before we were born, who we were and where we would live. Through His great mercy He caused us to be born again and through the faith that he has given us we are saved and are being saved for us to be revealed in the last time. All of this achieved through the sacrificial death and the resurrection of The Lord Jesus. Jesus Christ (Light Green rectangles) Jesus had apostles and Peter was one of them (vs 1) Jesus had the elect exiles and today has believers that are being sanctified so that they can obey Him (vs 1) Elect Exiles and believer's throught all ages were and are sprinkled with His blood (vs 2) Jesus is the Son of God to he Father (vs 3) Through the resurrection of Jesus from the dead, we are born again into a living hope by God the Father (vs 3) Questions Am I following the path that the Lord Jesus wants me to follow, and do I know if I am being obedient to The Lord Jesus? What is the difference (if any) in being covered by the Lord's blood and being sprinkled by the Lord's Blood? See (Hebrews 12:24) A living hope, we are born again into a living hope, not some dream or some fanciful wish but a real and genuine living hope, who sits at the right hand of God the Father The blood of Abel spoke to God from the Ground, and we know that life is in the blood. The blood of Jesus must also speak to God now and forever. Do I appreciate enough the sprinkling of the Blood of the Lamb of God on me? Genesis 4:6-12 ESV 6 The Lord said to Cain, “Why are you angry, and why has your face fallen? 7 y If you do well, will you not be accepted? 1 And if you do not do well, sin is crouching at the door. z Its desire is for 2 you, but you must rule over it.” 8 Cain spoke to Abel his brother. 1 And when they were in the field, Cain rose up against his brother Abel and a killed him. 9 Then the Lord said to Cain, “Where is Abel your brother?” He said, b “I do not know; am I my brother’s keeper?” 10 And the Lord said, “What have you done? The voice of your brother’s blood c is crying to me from the ground. 11 And now d you are cursed from the ground, which has opened its mouth to receive your brother’s blood from your hand. Summary Through the blood of Jesus, God's own Son and His resurrection believers are born again into a living hope, being sanctified by the work of the Holy Spirit for those who are born again to live lives in obedience to The Lord Jesus. Take Away 1 Everything about our inheritance is wonderful beyond words, ( 1 Corinthians 2:9 ). Kept and guarded in heaven by God's power. 1 Peter 5:4 ESV 4 And when t the chief Shepherd appears, you will receive the u unfading v crown of glory. Imperishable, it can never rot away, undefiled, it can never be tarnished or dirtied in any way unfading the brighteness of the crown of glory can never dim or go out. Take Away 2 I am living my life exactly where God put me, God knew that before I was born on this earth. This was in accordance with His foreknowledge and in accordance with His great Mercy he caused me to be born again. This was not of my doing.
