Gospel Thread - OT:

If the bull gores a male or female slave, the owner must pay thirty shekels of silver to the master of the slave, and the bull must be stoned.

Exodus 21:32 (NIV)

Thirty pieces of silver is the price to redeem oneself for the loss of a slave - the purchase price for a slave. Jesus was betrayed for the same thirty pieces of silver: the price of a slave (Matthew 26:14-15).

Gospel Thread - NT:

...but he who stands firm to the end will be saved.

This is our great hope: no matter what we face in this world, we have but to stand firm in our faith in Christ Jesus, and we will be saved.

Jesus Christ is the rightful King of the earth, for, by, and through whom all things were created. God's blessing of peace to His people comes through Christ.
