As Christians today, we must remember this event. In our time there are lots of theology confusion which causes war and violence. Christians during the 1st century proved that there is a way to sustain their religion without chaos. In addition to the support of Jesus, the Christians created the sign of the fish. The symbol represented ichthus which means Jesus Christ God’s Son Savior.
PERSPECTIVES ON SPIRIT BAPTISM The Reform position of the Baptism of the Holy Spirit is possibly the most commonly held position in the American mid-west. Walter Kaiser is a brilliant theologian but very typical in his assessment of the Holy Spirit’s representation in the New Testament. Kaiser does a masterful job of presenting the theological and chronological exegesis of the Holy Spirit without jumping off the Calvinist cliff. He makes an excellent observation of seeing the Pauline letters as didactic and Lukan letters as narrative, but falls short of full scholarship by asserting that narrative passages could not be doctrinal in scope. Kaiser also stays true to the conversion initiation theory by using 1 Corinthians 12:13 as the proof text for one Spirit and his defense against subsequence.
Explain Apostle Paul argument, what is the thesis of 3:21 in Romans. Moo, explains, “But now, justified by faith and how God revealed his righteousness through his Son and as apart from the Law of Moses, for instance, you can’t put old wine into new wine skin. Mark 2:22” ... Moo informs us,” the Old Mosaic covenant can’t contain the new wine of the gospel, the law and the prophet testifies to this new work of God in Christ, it has been God’s intention from the beginning to reveal the saving righteousness by sending his Son as a sacrifice for us.” Moo writes, “Paul build his case by explaining that the righteousness of God is only through faith in Jesus Christ to all who believe” . Nevertheless, Moo writes, “Jesus Christ is the objective of the
Faith does not reduce the autonomy of reason, but reminds people who is at work, causing the events that we attempt to break down with reason: God of Israel. He then goes on to explain how Jesus’ death on the cross holds so much weight in the teachings of philosophers and how it stumps many who ponder its details. “Man cannot grasp how death could be the source of life and love; yet to reveal the mystery of his saving plan God has chosen precisely that which reason considers "foolishness" and a "scandal" (John Paul pg. 21). The main justification that Paul provides is the truth about the deeper meaning of the Cross of Christ.
This shows that just as I mentioned, Mark’s purpose was to prove and show facts of how Jesus was the Messiah. As mentioned in the course manual, if Mark’s gospel ended on the crucifixion, then the gospel would be missing facts, which could be essential of the belief of the reader and not to mention that it would be ending on quite a tragic ending that shows more injustice . It means that in order for Mark to capture more than just the injustice committed against Jesus, he had to differ him from all the other famous executions such as Socrates’s or Joan of Arc and let’s not forget to mention that it was vital to the Christianity faith for the reader to understand what exactly differentiated Jesus Christ from all those other
Theories of Resurrection and The Transforming Reality of the Bodily Resurrection have enriched my understanding about the significance of Jesus’ resurrection within a Judaism and Christian Judaism Context. According to the previous titles, a wide belief spectrum concerning resurrection exists; on one end of the spectrum resurrection holds a metaphorical meaning for, “Israel 's restoration after exile”  while the opposite embraces, “the concrete re-embodiment of formerly dead persons” . Prior to reviewing the information contained in these documents, I did not know the Jewish vocabulary for resurrection. Meaning, I took for granted that resurrection comprised of a physical and spiritual resurrection. However, the first-century Jewish believer’s resurrection language entailed a dead body but resurrected soul or spirit whereas early Christians insisted, “…Jesus…was physically dead and was now…physically alive” .
Jesus can do it. Luke 5:12-26 Jordan Knorr’s Sermon bullet point. Parallel Pericopes: Mark 1: 40-2:12, Matthew 8:1-4, 9:1-8. Exegesis to draw from: Background: Book of Luke was written to prove that Jesus Christ was the eternal God in human flesh, who came into the world as the awaited Messiah. He wrote Precisely and systematically to present an un-refutable case that Jesus of Nazareth was the one who was to come, who makes the way possible for a created, sinful being to stand in front of a Holy and righteous God by taking upon Himself the penalty for sin which only God could do!
Jesus’ promise exists through the ages so as we may draw nearer to God through him, in the spirit of sacrifice rather than the burnt offerings of priests (Peterson, D. 1985). To offer, whether it be of law or nature, heart or mind what was once reserved for the sacrificial priests has become a covenant between Christ and those whom believe he died on the cross that we might live free of our sinful nature. the nature and role of the interpreter in this passage is to follow the essence of the true miracle of Christ’s death and resurrection over the centuries and into modern day believers. May all who interpret Hebrews 10:1-18 be of glad heart in that the Savior’s covenant live through Paul’s words, “ And where these have been forgiven, sacrifice for sin is no longer necessary” (Hebrews 10:18). Now, in the days of “Lives Matter”, leaders of the Christian community should resolve to all lives mattering and the end of sacrifices by Christ’s children.
Luke wrote to a Greco-Roman audience with an appeal for peasants and slaves, to claim the universality of Christianity and persuade that Jesus is the messiah. In Luke, Jesus is represented as one who forgives sinners, disregards the social order, and overturns conventional beliefs. The author of the Gospel of Luke gives off the idea of being well-educated. It has also been recognized that Luke was not an eyewitness to the experiences he talks about, but he did go on missionary journeys with Paul. Luke’s original Gospel was in Greek and had an early reference of 200.
Significant Distinctions and Similarities between Roman Catholicism vs Christianity In today’s society it is fairly difficult to differentiate religion in general, especially when the individual isn 't knowledgeable of religious practices. Roman Catholicism and Christianity have several similarities, but they are also very different, however Catholics are Christians because they believe that Jesus Christ is the Messiah. Which is the foundation of the Christian faith. Catholicism and Christianity both share the common belief of the trinity; One God in three persons, the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. Jesus is the Son of God who came to earth in human form, was crucified, died, and resurrected three days later to call sinners to repentance.
