He never sinned because he was God’s son sent to sacrifice himself for the sins of humans. During Jesus’ life, non-Christians became upset with him for preaching that he was the Messiah. Pilate charged Jesus with blasphemy and sentenced him to hang on the cross until death. The Romans whipped and tortured Jesus and he had to carry his cross to Golgotha (Renan, 1864), where he was nailed down to it and then it was raised.
Honest with himself, he was however misleading with the congregation from the fear of facing the punishment and the shame he knew he would face from them. He knew he had done wrong, it was obvious in the penance he imposed on himself, yet he was deceitful with the townspeople giving evidence to the lack of integrity his character had within. It took him seven years and a call of death to finally come clean with his fellow worshippers. It was too late to gain any form of dignity, and if anything he would only be seen as a coward for just dying after his confessed his sin.
(pg.63) His response was also to seek revenge on the man who wronged them both. “Think not that I shall interfere with Heaven’s own method of retribution,or, to my own loss, betray him to the gripe of human law. Neither do thou imagine that I shall contrive aught against his life, no, nor against his fame; if, as I judge, he be a man of fair repute. Let him live!
Where the ancient scholarly pursuit was to find harmony, the current scholarly drive is to find discord between the Four Gospels, any small find becomes bloated out of proportion to show the whole work to be fake. One of the main contradictions, that the author is aware of, is the account of Judas’ death. Matthew 27:3-8 has Judas throwing the bribe money away before hanging himself, the priests using the money to buy a field for burial. Acts 1:18 has Judas buying the field with the bribe money and dying in the field from a fall. This historical inconsistency does not affect the consistency of Christ’s theological message.
Introduction ... If Christ be not risen, then is our preaching vain, and your faith is also vain. —1 Corinthians 15:14 (King James Version) Since the crucifixion of Jesus, opponents of Christianity have directly criticized the religion’s foundation, attempting to belie the historicity of Christ’s physical resurrection. Aiming to nullify Christianity and confute the prospect of supernatural intervention or divine involvement, skeptics and opponents of Christianity continually disseminate naturalistic alternatives, or conspiracy theories, to contradict the resurrection account.
During the crucifixion of Jesus Christ, Jesus cried out, “My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?” (Mark 15:34). Jesus was punished because of false accusations against him. Although Jesus could have confessed to the false testimonies against him, he choice not to lie and died for his followers sins.
Jesus did not want to do it but it was his destiny and that is what true hero's do. God wanted the best for Jesus, and he also wanted the best for us. By doing what was best for us, Jesus had to die for us so we would not have to. The mentor not only helped Jesus but he also helped
Jesus asked Judas why he would act like his friend in kissing him, when in actuality Judas
It’s because he was a child and still had this sense of wonder that he was going to actually see Jesus which ultimately disappointed him. While everybody had encouraged this, they meant this in a different manner, a more spiritual
Our worldview is the lens that we make sense of life and should be intentional as we adopt a philosophy of life that is informed by something greater than ourselves as Christ should be our example, according to 1 Peter 2:21 “for [as a believer] you have been called for this purpose, since Christ suffered for you, leaving you an example, so that you may follow in His footsteps” (Amplified Version). For this reason, our moral compass when based on a biblical worldview should influence how we approach making decisions as it pertains to business ethics (Porter,2013).
