How does the textbook interpret Matthew 18:21-35 and the Christian’s ability to forgive others?
The textbook interprets the passage as saying that even if forgiveness costs you (is very difficult), we need to do it because Christ forgives us. We must recognize the person seeking forgiveness as more important than ourselves.
Describe the Christian view of salvation and how it differs from the views of other religions.
Salvation is found through Christ alone. No amount of “good works” will get us any closer to Heaven because we still fail compared to God’s glorious and sinless standard. Jesus brought all the sins of the world upon himself when he died, even though he lived a perfect life. His resurrection declared that sin has no hold over the world anymore because he defeated death.

Summarize John 20:24-29. What is the significance of this passage for Christians today?
