Gospel Thread - OT:

Then the LORD said to Moses, "See, I have made you like God to Pharaoh, and your brother Aaron will be your prophet."

Exodus 7:1 (NIV)

A continuation of the comparision of Moses as a type of Christ: Aaron is a type of John the Baptist. He is the prophet, the herald.

Gospel Thread - NT:

32 Then the master called the servant in. 'You wicked servant,' he said, 'I canceled all that debt of yours because you begged me to. 33 Shouldn't you have had mercy on your fellow servant just as I had on you?'

Matthew 18:32-33 (NIV)

Mercy: not being given that what is deserved. Jesus uses this parable to explain that, just as we are given mercy from God, we likewise are to give that same mercy to others. This same principle applies to grace, forgiveness, love: these, and all of the other myriad gifts with which God has blessed us.

Gospel Thread - Psalms/Proverbs:

The LORD is my shepherd, I shall not be in want.

Psalm 23:1 (NIV)

Jesus is the Good Shepherd (John 10:1-16).
