Heidelberg Catechism 29 & 30

Preacher: Rev Gavino Fioretti

Acts 4: 1 – 22

(verses 11, 12) Jesus is “‘the stone you builders rejected, which has become the cornerstone.’ Salvation is found in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given to mankind by which we must be saved.” (ESV)

Question 29. Why is the Son of God called Jesus, that is a Savior?
Answer. Because he saveth us, and delivereth us from our sins; and likewise, because we ought not to seek, neither can find salvation in any other.

Question 30. Do such then believe in Jesus the only Savior, who seek their salvation and welfare of saints, of themselves, or anywhere else?
Answer. They do not; for though they boast of him in words, yet in deeds they deny Jesus the only deliverer and Savior; for one of these two things must be true, that either Jesus is not a complete Savior; or that they, who by a true faith receive this Savior, must find all things in him necessary to their salvation.

The uniqueness of Christ

  1. Universal dangers – self made religeon; self righteousness; self deception
  2. Beautiful reminders – Jesus saves; Jesus alone saves; Jesus saves perfectly
  3. Challenging statements – salvation should be sought; salvation should be sought in Christ; salvation could be missed
  4. Wonderful promises – salvation is receiving Christ; you receive the benfits found in Him
