Jesus Christ
PAGES 1 WORDS 334

Jesus Christ Is the Central Figure of Christianity Who Was Born in Bethlehem, Judea
sometime between 8 BC and 29 AD. The name "Jesus" is derived from a Greek rendering of the Hebrew name Joshua, while "Christ" is the Greek translation of the Hebrew mashiakh or Messiah, which was a title that was later made part of Jesus' proper name. Christians traditionally believe that Jesus is the incarnate Son of God, who was divinely conceived by Mary, wife of Joseph, a carpenter of Nazareth. He is also believed to have died on the cross and then resurrected.

Since the primary source about Jesus and his teachings, The New Testament, was written in the latter part of the first century AD when most of the people who knew Jesus first hand had died, there is some debate about the historicity and nature of Jesus. However, most secular as well as religious scholars are….

Furthermore it is with Isaiah that one first becomes acquainted with the idea that the Messiah would die. "And they made his grave with the wicked and with a rich man in his death, although he had done no violence, and there was no deceit in his mouth."

The passage clearly predicts a Messianic figure who dies, in order to bring peace to the multitudes. "Out of the anguish of his soul he shall see and be satisfied; by his knowledge shall the righteous one, my servant, make many to be accounted righteous, and he shall bear their iniquities."

It speaks directly to the fact that he will die and that this death is necessary. "ecause he poured out his soul to death and was numbered with the transgressors; yet he bore the sin of many, and makes intercession for the transgressors."

v. 9)
I am the good shepherd" (10:11, 14)

I am the resurrection and the life" (11:25)

I am the way, and the truth, and the life" (14:6)

I am the true vine" (15:1; cf. v. 5)

It was John's responsibility to teach Christians that they can have eternal life.

There was an order of the way that John taught:

In Chapter One, Versus 1-4 John saw the proofs that Jesus was the son of God; then there was the teaching of the proof which he saw. Thirdly there was the personal aspect of his teachings, that Jesus is the Christ. The fourth is the promise of eternal life for Christians. After these points were made, John teaches Christians that by following God they can have eternal life. From this Chapter John teaches that having

" In this instance, the word revelation means "the communication of the knowledge of God" or "God's disclosure to humanity of Himself" (aixeras, Internet). Therefore, if God had to reveal to Jesus His own knowledge, this indicates that Jesus was not an omniscient being, for as a prophet, his own revelations to common, ordinary men and women were made possible via some form of communication with God the Father.
In conclusion, it is abundantly clear from the evidence presented above that Jesus Christ was not an omniscient entity, due to the fact that even though he was a great teacher and prophet, if not a philosopher, he did not know everything there is to know in the universe or else he would not have had to rely upon God the Father for spiritual answers and for direction in providing words of encouragement for those Jewish men and women lost in body….

Jesus Christ is an inextricable part of my life. I have been a Christian all my life. Being raised in a Christian community has ensured that my faith does not waiver. The support of others in a community of Christians is a core component of the Bible. "For where two or three are gathered in my name, there am I among them," (Matthew 18:20)." Because of my community of faith, and because of my inner spiritual compass, I have never once doubted my faith in God. I cannot personally imagine a life without Christ. I do believe that one of my duties, one of God's missions for me on Earth, is to help spread the word of the gospel so that others may also know the joy of Jesus in their own hearts. The world will be a better place as more people come to believe in Christ, which….

Sign Miracles of Jesus Christ
During Jesus' life, he performed many miracles, a large number of which are recorded throughout the bible in various books. Some of these miracles are mentioned by more than one disciple, and some take on more significance than others. Each of the miracles adds to the perceived ability of Jesus and his tie to God himself. Among them were the eight sign miracles that will be discussed here. These miracles not only point to Jesus' abilities, they also indicate his deity. While skeptics remain, there is much evidence that the miracles performed by Jesus actually occurred. Here, it is important to address all eight of the sign miracles and why they point to Jesus' deity.

The Healing of the Lame Man

One of the first miracles performed was the healing of the lame man (Hoffman, 2004). This man had been at the pool at Bethesda for 38….

Christian
The miraculous birth of Jesus Christ is the defining event of Christianity. Christmas is celebrated as a means to commemorate this event, and to help all believers focus on the meaning of the nativity. Although Christmas has become commercialized, it is always possible to return to the roots of this special holiday.

The story of Jesus's birth is told throughout the New Testament. One of the most lucid passages describing the birth of Christ is in Matthew 1: 18-25. These passages describe "how the birth of Jesus the Messiah came about," and also what it meant for Joseph and Mary (Matthew 1:18). When Mary was found to be pregnant before her wedding to Joseph, Joseph actually "had in mind to divorce her quietly" because he thought she had disgraced herself (Matthew 1:19). However, the Lord appeared to Joseph in a dream. In the dream, the Lord told Joseph that the child….

Matthew's Passion
Millennial Reign of Jesus Christ

The vast majority of Christian today look forward to the future glorious return of Christ and the realization of the Kingdom of God. This return was promised by Jesus himself, as he told his disciples that he went to prepare a place to which he would take his followers (John 14: 1-4). The surety of Christ's return was so strong that he even promised his disciples that "There be some standing here, which shall not taste of death, till they see the Son of man coming in his kingdom." (Matthew 16:28) However, as just these two verses suggest, there is a great deal of conflict and confusion as to what the precise meaning of these prophecies of a second coming amount. The first generation of Christians in the early church consistently referred to themselves as living in the last days and in the end times….

Topic: The Deity of Christ You needed to choose two classmates dealing with different topics/views among themselves and also different from your own.
I. Give the name of the view against the full deity of Jesus Christ presented by your classmate (include your classmate’s name for reference).
As Michael points out, Christian Science is the view against the full deity of Jesus Christ. Although Christian scientists do believe in the trinity, and of course in God, and even in Jesus Christ as the Messiah, Christian Scientists do not follow Biblical truths.
II. Provide your own response to these objections. Use your own arguments, they must not be the same as the ones used by your classmates.
Christian Science is an outlier for a reason. Not only does the organization have a warped view of the trinity, it also has a distorted view of Jesus. According to an official Christian Science website, “Christian Science teaches that….

Christian Gospel
In reference to the World View, answer the following questions from the ible and the Gospels:

What are some ways the Christian Gospel is perceived in our culture?

Our culture perceives the gospel just like everything else that it comes into contact with; it is twisted from what is true. The work of Satan has invaded many areas, for instance, education and the media and this has allowed more alteration of the correct gospel. The gospel clearly indicates that some people will not see the gospel properly as stated in Romans 11:8 and 2nd Corinthians 4:4. Due to this elievers are not properly understood and therefore people expect us to be flawless if the ible is really correct about us.[footnoteRef:1] [1: "asic Gospel Questions for Christians." 2016. Accessed September 22, 2016. http://www.salvationscall.org/blog/basic-gospel-questions-for-christians.]

suffer is to live. Suffering makes up a large part of a person's life. In Nicholas Wolterstorff's Lament of a Son, a collection of quotes and anecdotes related to the author's experience with the premature loss of Eric, his son, the author provides a way of dealing with loss that is both inspiring and personal. What turned into a tragic mountain climbing accident, a father's journey to accepting a tragic loss turns into a voice for those mourning.
Mourning is a common occurrence for the living. People die every day and Kubler-oss' five stages of grief outlines the process of mourning as well as helps give a better understanding of Wolterstorff's development after he lost his son. The five stages of grief are denial, anger, bargaining, preparatory grieving or depression, and acceptance. The first stage denial, is seen in how people are supposed to act after learning of Eric's passing.….


The impact each has had on their respective followers, as well as the millions of other individuals who choose not to follow their teachings is overwhelming in nature. For two individuals who lived so many centuries ago to still hold sway over such a large portion of the population is a testament to their influence. Currently both Mohammed and Jesus are honored on special days throughout the year, and more than that they are also venerated and revered every single day by millions of faithful followers of their respective teachings.

The teachings of Jesus are currently being presented through the Christian Bible and primarily through the four gospels of the New Testament. These four books were written approximately forty to sixty years after the death of Jesus and relate the stories of his life and times. "hat Christians believe about Jesus' life and teachings is based largely on biblical texts, primarily….

As an adolescent, Mohamed managed to make use of his businessman nature and his remarkable communicational skills. At the age of twenty five he was entrusted with taking care of the caravans of a rich widow which he later married. Being very fond of religion, Mohamed paid a great interest to udaism and Christianity, but was quick to dispose of both of them as he didn't share the principles of the two. He often visited a temple in Mecca where people were worshiping three hundred and sixty Gods. Mohamed felt attracted by Allah, the moon God, and began to claim that the moon God had been the one true God people should worship. As a very religious man that he had been, Mohamed was known to dedicate several weeks to the divinity by praying in a cave near Mecca where he allegedly had numerous visions of God and of….

PAGES 1 WORDS 452

The tempting figure of Satan serves as a much more prominent actor in the film's plot, not simply causing Jesus to suffer for forty days and forty nights in the desert, nor show Jesus all he will have if he abandons his father, but has an abiding visual presence, offering Jesus a view of paradise that is something to be created upon earth, with human physical desires and a human, physical body that Jesus must ultimately give up to fulfill his destiny. This Satan does not tempt Jesus with visions of power, or another dark kingdom as he does in the gospels, but with the tempting nature of human life on earth as good in and of itself -- a theme that is not present in any of the gospels, perhaps because Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John took a less salutary view of earthly life, given the circumstances the….
