Keeping Christ in Christmas - Have you thought about the current religious and social scene in America; especially during this time of year of Christmas. Religion has once again been forced to the forefront of the news, with groups fighting over whether to have a “Nativity Scene” in the public square, others are debating about using the word “Christmas” in their sales ads, and then we hear schools are not going on “Christmas break” but winter break. In our changing society, I wonder if anyone of us has stopped to ask what did God intend by sending His Son, Jesus Christ to this earth....   [tags: religion, christmas, jesus christ]

Drawing on the Gospels of Matthew and Luke, and the Character Development of Joseph and Mary in the Nativity Story - The 2006 film The Nativity Story, is a retelling of the birth of Jesus and the events surrounding it. The film takes pieces both from the Gospel of Matthew and the Gospel of Luke in order to create its narrative. The film takes some of its key scenes as well as aspects of both Mary and Joseph from the Bible. The advantage of using both gospels as a basis for the film is that it allows for the dual perspective of Mary and Joseph instead of being limited to one or the other, and allows for a more complete feeling narrative....   [tags: film analysis, cinematography, Christianity]

The Crucifixion of Jesus Christ - "For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life." This verse - John 3:16 - is perhaps the most important in the Bible. Jesus Christ was the son of God, but he was also the son of man. Jesus had a human mother, Mary (see Luke 1:30-31 for example), but his father was God (see John 3:18 for example). Jesus was human, not God.

His purpose for writing this gospel was to convince the readers that Jesus was who he claimed to be, and for them to put their trust in him. Another principle theme is Jesus’ deity, which can be seen in more than a dozen passages. Within the book of John, there are only seven miracles, each are different, and five of them are unique to John. Unlike all the other gospel accounts, John begins his book not with Jesus’ birth, but with a theological prologue explaining the reasons and nature of Jesus’ incarnation as well as the purpose he had in taking on human flesh....   [tags: jesus, bible, john's gospel] 559 words

To write about a woman rebelling against the ritual of going to church and describing the sensualities of the natural world, and posing the question why is heaven better than what we have on Earth, is brilliant.

Jesus Christ Would Support the Death Penalty - Capital punishment, as ordained by God, is the only way to reduce crime in a long-lasting form. Although there are many who would refute this claim, the Bible holds its ground when it comes to the issue of capital punishment. The Bible has stood for, and will continue to stand for, capital punishment. Since God was the one who first initiated capital punishment, we should look to His Word to find the origin of it. Capital punishment was instituted when God told Adam and Eve “...in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die.” Genesis 9:6 also references capital punishment by stating, “Whoso sheddeth man's blood, by man shall his blood be shed.” Exodus 21:12 echoes this saying with...   [tags: Jesus Christ and the Death Penalty] 2452 words

Essay on Gregor as Christ in Kafka's Metamorphosis - Gregor as Christ in Kafka's Metamorphosis In his "Metamorphosis", Kafka utilizes an allegorical technique to compare Gregor's sacrifices to those of Jesus in the Bible.
