  • Jesus Vs. Mark In The Gospel Of Jesus

    860 Words  | 4 Pages

    Jesus came to earth on a mission, he wanted to inspire and teach people about the power of following God’s commands. Jesus is more than just our savior, he is our guide and the gospel that shows this best is Matthew’s. The Gospel of Matthew is clear and powerful when describing the pedagogy of Jesus. He did not spend his time in a room lecturing people, he did not force people to listen to him and he did not come with a prepared discussion topic on note cards. Jesus simply stood in crowds preaching

    The story from the gospel of John, in which Jesus tells his disciples to cast their fishing nets off the right side of the boat; illustrates the moral dilemma that we are currently facing today, albeit not the way Christians would perceive.

  • Jesus Leper Analysis

    869 Words  | 4 Pages

    The scene in which Jesus cleanses a leper in the first chapter of the Gospel of Mark seems to contain several important meanings. Prior to understanding the significance of this healing, it is imperative to acknowledge and investigate an important gap that is present. Mark states that “a leper came to” Jesus, but he fails to elaborate on Jesus’ location and why he was in a place where a leper could approach him (Mk 1:40). Leviticus 13 outlines the laws regarding lepers, which are very clear and strict

    There are two different understandings of Jesus. One way to understand him is to think of him in terms of inculturation: This means to adapt an idea, image, or story to a specific culture. The second way to understand Jesus is to think of him in terms of incarnation, or God becoming flesh. Inculturation is a highly malleable process which opens up Jesus to many interpretations, while incarnation is a much more objective way of thinking. In this essay, I will point out how and why inculturation and

  • Jesus Substitutionary Atonement

    a quote from Jesus Christ in the Gospel of John, chapter 14 verse 6 that says, “Jesus said, ‘I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.” I have read this verse and been told this verse over and over ever since I was introduced to Christianity when I was younger. Overtime, I have determined that this biblical verse meant that their is no other way to achieve salvation, heaven, and the ultimate truth and relationship other than accepting Jesus Christ as one’s

    come without serious consequences and hardships. However, while Jesus and Aeneas both strive to achieve a certain goal due to divine intervention and both overcome certain adversities, their underlying motives and their ultimate outcomes are starkly different. Although it would appear that neither Jesus nor Aeneas would be motivated by personal fame or glory—as they were sent on godly missions, this is not the case in The Aeneid. Jesus acts completely selflessly as he teaches others about the Kingdom

Whoever has not submitted his life to the obedience of the word of God is under the influence of the serpent, Satan is his master

Through him all things were made; without him nothing was made that has been made. In him, was life, in that life was the light of men” (NIV).

  • Jesus In The Book Of Matthew

    479 Words  | 2 Pages

    decided on representing Jesus through Matthew’s Christology. Throughout the entire book of Matthew, he portrays Christ as a teacher above all other titles. Matthew’s entire book is written for a Jewish Christian audience after the temple in Jerusalem was destroyed. Matthew had to show that Jesus was a teacher because he needed people to know that they can listen to and learn from the Messiah. We thought this was a very important point and had to create an abstract visual of Jesus as a teacher. The

    the teachings and the life of Jesus of Nazareth. But few of these interpretations deal with what the teachings and the life of Jesus have to say to those who stand, at a moment in human history, with their backs against the wall (Thurman, 1949).

  • Theme Of Jesus Is The Messiah

    552 Words  | 3 Pages

    The theme “Jesus is the Messiah,” is a well-known statement with an extensive, scholarly meaning. The bigger picture behind this statement is not heard of in many churches. Some churches fail to recognize the doubt, and misunderstanding of Jesus by humans. Not only does that get overlooked, but also the fact that Jesus never converted. Jesus remained Jewish his entire life. This was proven in Matthew 17:18. This theme raised question in my head. Why am I founding this out now seventeen year later

    towards analyzing the criterions that are highly esteemed by those studying the life of Jesus. The first valid criterion, and perhaps the most effective, is language and environment.

    580 Words  | 3 Pages

    I believed that John studied Jesus deeper than any other disciple. For, the revelation of verse 1-5 has a deep meaning to those who desire to know how the word has always existed. The introduction to this passage is one of the summits of Scripture. In fact, it probably reaches the highest of human thought. What is the opinion that reaches the height of human concepts? It is this: Jesus Christ, the Son of God, is #1 the Word of Life #2 the Creator of Life #3 the Very Being and Essence of Life These
