Below write 200 words stating and outlining 3 KEY POINTS gained from the lecture material and explain why you consider them key points.
My first main point is how Jesus is presented as the fulfillment of the promise by Yahweh to sent the Messiah, ‘The one who saves’, in the New Testament. The Gospel texts describe who Jesus is or what he did and are linked to Old Testament texts. This important as it associates and further bring together all parts of the Bible as the New Testament is written in light on the Old Testament.
Also the version of Jesus presented in the Synoptic Gospels is different from the Gospel of John. He speaks very little about himself; he is focused on the coming of the Kingdom of God. Prior to this unit I considered all the Gospels to …show more content…
Mark’s Jesus exhibits a full range human emotion and is subject to human weakness and human frailty. He was known as ‘a carpenter; ‘the Son of Mary’. This Gospel is often cited as an example of ‘Christology from Below’. Over the previous weeks I have been developing a better understanding of ‘Christology from Below’, and through analysis of Mark it has provided me deeper knowledge and concrete examples.

In conclusion of reading O’Collins, the subjective nature of our historical knowledge and knowledge of other people, should not be limited to the fact that we are all historically and culturally conditioned. This influences our deepest desires and primal questions that shape our existence, but here and now find incomplete fulfilment and temporary answers.
Second, when drawing on the Gospels we can use the widely accepted scheme of three stages in the communication of testimony to Jesus’ deeds and words:
1) The first stage in his earthly life when his disciples and others spoke about

Scholars have been reading and interpreting the Bible for centuries. Historians and theologians continue to debate the meaning and importance of the journey, miracles, parables, and teachings of Jesus. In reading the gospel of Luke and Drew Hart’s book, Trouble I’ve Seen: Changing the Way the Church Views Racism, similarities can be drawn between the differing portrayals of Jesus and those individuals that Jesus was seeking out. Here, we will take a closer look at who Jesus is through the words of the gospel of Luke, how Hart understands and describes Jesus, as well as where the two cross over. Unlike the other gospels, Luke recognizes Jesus as the universal Christ and compassionate savior.
After thoroughly reading Deuteronomy 32:45-47, Romans 10:17, Matthew 4:4, and Jeremiah 15:16, I have a better understanding of spiritual food. I noticed that in all four of the passages, it talks about the words of Christ. The words of Christ are found within the Bible in Scripture. In order for us to be spiritually alive, we have to take the words of the Lord, whether it be straight from our Bible or second hand from someone else, and break them down as they are our food. You break them apart by digging deeper into the meaning behind the verses not just focusing on what they are saying.
Objection 1. When looking to understand theology, one should not use concepts of philosophy in order to explain its meanings. An example of this reasoning is when Tertullian writes about how, “. . . philosophical reasoning might persuade some who do not accept the authority of purported divine revelation of the claims contained in religious texts” . He wants to say that if one were to rely on concepts that are about theology that have only been explained through philosophical meanings, then they are not really learning about theology.
A: A marriage is presumed valid and enforceable unless a party can legally prove otherwise. In Chandler v. Chander, Richard (husband) had failed 1) to petition the court to enter a Declaratory Judgment, despite his specific allegation that the marriage was void; it’s become signiticant. 2) Richard only requested the Court to set aside the property settlement. 3) Richard had failed to discover the legality of his marriage for more than 30 years, let it tolled, and 4) Richard had failed to prosecute his claim effectively.
An Evening of eschatology was hosted by John Piper in 2007 September, 27 as one primer goal: Discussion about the millennium. At that night John Piper invited three representatives of each one of the views: Around the table were Jimmy Hamilton (pre-millennialist) Doug Wilson (post-millennialist) and Sam Storms (amillennialist). Although being an pre-millennialist, John Piper figured only as moderator of the meeting. The convertation starts establishing some key points that are common between all the views: the concept of gospel, our sinful nature that makes us deserve the wrath and punish of God, the substitution sacrifice from Jesus that endured the wrath of God in our place. Because He bore our sins we receive His righteousness and we are accepted by God.
Each of who is seeking new life shed on them. Whether they are searching Christ or not, they are undoubtedly searching for and absence or void in their lives to be filled. Thus sets the plot for this work that guides readers on a journey to what it means to tell the truth and
In the duration of this paper, I would like to explore those ideas, and compare them to what I think. The first passage that I would like to go over that Bonhoeffer discuss in this article describing Christian Discipleship is the fact that “The cross is laid on every Christian ” I didn’t realize exactly how
Moreover the first section is developed in Galilee and its surround. Second, from 8: 27 a number of changes occurred, especially the explicit references to the disciples ' lack of understanding. The presentation of the figure of Jesus also changes in the last half. Mark begins to present Jesus as a figure whose destiny is completely delimited for him, beginning with the first announcement of the passion "the Son of Man must
John present to us that who Jesus is at the very center of the Gospel of John. Carson tells us that the “Son of God” can roughly serve synonymn for “Messiah”. All the Synoptic Gospels wrote that Jesus is the Messiah, and the Son of God. Salvation:
The theses helped to express two beliefs. One being that the bible is the central
The Gospel of John contains some of the most profound truth which is expressed in the simplest way. It is full of imagery and symbolism which though concise and limited bears deep spiritual meaning. In his book, The Interpretation of the fourth Gospel, C. H. Dodd must have been the first to identify the leading ideas and thus separate in form and function the allegories of the Gospel of John from the synoptic parables and connect them with the Old Testament and the Hellenistic-Jewish symbolic tradition. That is to say the author of this Gospel mostly uses common things present in the life and tradition of his listeners and uses them to make the divine understandable. Koester in his book on Symbolism in the Fourth Gospel says that:
In Thomas Long’s The Witness of Preaching, he aims to urge the reader to become a reliable witness of the gospel by way of ample preparation before entering a pulpit. The text offers to the reader a deeper understanding of the ministry of preaching. A useful component of the text contains informative bits of information that make the reader aware of the lengthy but necessary preparation needed for an adequate explanation of the scripture. Of primary importance is the consideration of the congregation when a preacher is first approaching the text. This point is of vital importance as it signifies that the speaker is a member of the body of Christ and the congregation.
While the other gospels emphasize the Kingdom of God and the Kingdom of Heaven, John instead emphasizes new life found in Jesus. It’s from John that we get Christ’s famous claim “I am the way the truth and the life. No one comes to the father except through me” -John 14:6. Jesus frequently uses metaphors to hint at his identity. John records more of these analogies than any other gospel, giving us some of the most famous word pictures for Christ.
