I love a good play on words. When you do a quick Google search of grave robbers, you discover it's a worldwide phenomenon usually perpetrated to take and profit from valuable artifacts or personal property. Crowder’s song “Grave Robber” attributes this title to God. But not in the way we normally think of a body snatcher who digs up graves for their own economic benefit. No. Our grave robber is snatching our souls from eternal death.

Moving from death to life is an important theme to study in Scripture. Join me on the journey from Ephesians to Romans, Genesis, and John.

In this episode, I discuss the following:

  • Taking a B.I.T.E. out of Scripture – this week's Bible Interaction Tool Exercises include: 
    • Make observations
    • Make a list
    • Follow the cross-references
    • Complete a word study
  • Episode Guide
  • Dead, but made alive with Christ - Ephesians 2:1-10
  • "For what Paul does in this passage is to paint a vivid contrast between what man is by nature and what he can become by grace." -- The Message of Ephesians (The Bible Speaks Today Series) by John Stott - Amazon Paid Link
  • The timeline of why we were dead in the first place - Romans 5:12-21
  • Revisiting the original scene in Genesis to remind us of the details of the original sin - Genesis 2:15-17, 3:1-7, 22-24
  • How sin separates us from God - Isaiah 59:2
  • Defining the kind of death Paul speaks of
  • Completing word studies on "transgressions" and "sins"
  • Weaving the truths together - Romans 3:23, Romans 6:23, Ephesians 2:4-5, Hebrews 2:14-15, John 5:24
  • Our grave robber has snatched us from the clutches of the prince of the power of the air and brought us from death to life because He is God - John 5:18-25

This Week's Challenge

Study four areas of Scripture with your eyes set on this idea of death and life. Look closely at the walking dead in Ephesians 2. Understand the contrast between Adam and Jesus in Romans 5. Go back to the beginning to remind yourself of the details of original sin in Genesis 2 and 3. Soak in the words of Jesus in John 5. And if you haven’t done so, heed the call of the Grave Robber. Accept His free gift of salvation and walk in newness of life.
