They might differ from each other but that is because they were written by four different authors. They’re Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John. Some of his most trusted apostles. The gospels inform us on Jesus teaching and life. This is why we know the correct way we should live our lives and how to achieve the ultimate goal, heaven.
In the Gospel of Mark, Jesus is presented as the “Christ, the Messiah” (Mk 1:1 NAB). These are the first words of Mark. However, what does this mean? Through the Gospel, Mark wants to answer this question with several facts. The Gospel is divided in two main sections: first, chapter 1 to 8 shows the human part of Jesus and performing several miracles.
Jesus is often faced by faithless opponents who do not believe anything can be done to save these people. This leads to Jesus becoming angry at this generation in an attempt to show that people, even his disciples, need to have enhance their faith. The importance of having faith is shown why Jesus heals the boy with a demon. In this exchange, the father asked Jesus’ disciples to get the demon out of his son, but they could not. The father asks Jesus if there is anything he can do to help.
2:5-11 Paul gives us a very clear picture of Jesus’ deity “Make your own attitude that of Christ Jesus, who, existing in the form of God, did not consider equality with God as something to be used for His own advantage…” (NLT). Throughout Jesus’ earthly ministry He gave clues about His deity when he said things like, “Your sins are forgiven” or calling the angels
The disciples were amazed and exclaimed a historic statement about Jesus, “Who is this? He commands even the winds and the water, and they obey him” (Lk. 8: 25b). The disciples see Jesus as God who has control over creation and who non-human creation obeys. Childs comments that in here God’s creative activity is depicted in Jesus’ power (Biblical Theology 392).
Being made sin for us, he underwent the sentence sin had exposed us to. Carnal hearts see nothing in the Lord Jesus to desire an interest in him. Unfortunately, by how many is he still despised in his people, and rejected as to his doctrine and authority. We can see this in The Synoptic Gospels (Matthew, Mark, Luke) share about the crucifixion and rejection of Jesus Christ, but Isaiah 53 and Psalms 22 describe in graphic detail what took place as well as the spiritually significant purpose for the death of our Savior. So let’s explore Isaiah 53 and see if we can discover its true meaning and therefore its accurate application to our lives today.
This has been concluded through a lot of resources like the Bible, circumstantial and historical evidence. Which include the following points and claims. First that Jesus was actually crucified on the cross and died, second his resurrection convinced his family to worship him as God. Third, how the disciples were completely transformed,
The Epistle to the Hebrews written by an unknown Hebrew writer celebrates this messianic atonement in the meaning of the Temple service. (For a discussion of the Atonement see Reign of God: An Introduction to Christian Theology, second edition, by Richard Rice, pp. 191-197, Andrews University Press, 1997; see also Christus Victor: An Historical Study of the Three Main Types of the Idea of Atonement by G. Aulen, Macmillan, New York, 1969). Our life on the planet is so short when compared to God’s eternity. His plans are lengthy.
(and)...once in the world, Jesus called upon things that could be heard, seen, touched, and tasted to bear witness to the unseen God who sent him, so that the commonplace - bread made from barley meal, streams of cool water, and a glimmer of light - became vehicles of revelation.1 Prominent among these are the seven ‘I am sayings’, where Jesus uses such things as bread, light, a door and the shepherd to symbolize him. Koester points out that the fundamental structure of these symbolisms are twofold: the primary level of meaning concerns Christ and the secondary concerns the disciple.2 He says that by concentrating the primary meaning of each image on Jesus and the secondary on his disciples, the Gospel continuously drives the reader to accept the fact about Jesus’ divinity and the meaning of his life (the reader) in relation to him.3 A clear example of this is the last but not least of the ‘I am’ sayings where Jesus represents himself as the ‘True Vine’ which we will here explore more in depth. It seems that this discourse took place after Jesus celebrated the Passover meal with his disciples. He had predicted his betrayal, told them that he had to go to the Father and that he would not leave them alone, that he would send them the Advocate, his Holy Spirit. So in John 15:1-8 it seems that he was warning them not to be like Judas but to remain in the
Many times, especially at Bible College it gets monotonous and even robotic to say that Jesus is the reason why we have peace with the Father as it is said many times and loses its meaning. While reading up and researching for this, the love and appreciation I have for all that Jesus went through for me personally is exhilarating and rekindles the appreciation I have for all that He has done. Secondly, this helps to get me more confident as I add to reasons as to why Jesus is the messiah long awaited for. Growing up in a Christian household, I have just believed and shared that Jesus is the messiah because it was what was told to me as child. Now in researching it and seeing for myself that Jesus corresponds to a prophecy that was written about 700 years before is mind-blowing and helps me to be way more cemented in my
