New Testament Ussers in a New Dawn in Time from the Old Testament - ... Everything changed in my life when I realized the fact that the word is sweet, and you have to know the Lord to truly experience true love from him. John 3:16 states for God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten son and whosoever believe on him shall not perish but have everlasting life. The love that God expressed for humanity is fundamentally unimaginable, I can not think of anyone who would sacrifice their life for humanity, let alone people who despise them. The new testament started a new time because it started a revolution of mans thinking concerning God....   [tags: bible, Jesus, sin]

The Book of Roman in the New Testament - ... Paul was fully convinced that God would be able to do what he had said. Paul explains that just as Abraham had faith in God’s promise, we should have faith and hope in God’s son, Jesus Christ, who was raised from the dead as the reconciliation of the world. About our human identity and relationships, we know that Jesus Christ was sent, dead, and resurrected, to bring us “the salvation and eternal life to all who believe in him” (NIV). All this happened after Adam, his sins, and their descendants from generation to generation were also sinners (NIV)....   [tags: jesus, church, sin] 618 words

Was Jesus the Reincarnation of Adam? - ... God told Adam and Eve that they were allowed to eat from every tree that was in the garden, but they were not to eat from the tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil. Satan appeared to Eve, Adams wife, and told her that if she ate from the forbidden tree then she would be just like God.

The Important Aspects of Jesus' Life - Jesus Christ was born in Bethlehem to a virgin named Mary (Luke 1-2 New International Version). Throughout the Old Testament of the Bible, there are many prophecies explaining what Jesus was meant and going to do on this Earth. Jesus had to fulfill each one to become the Savior of the Earth. When Jesus was in his 30s, He started to preach, create miracles, and explain the new ways and rules of how to live (Luke New International Translation).

The Parables of Jesus and the End Times - A parable is defined as an earthly story with a heavenly message. Jesus frequently used parables as a means of exemplifying insightful, divine truths. The insightful stories are easily remembered, the characters are usually bold, and the representation rich in significance. “A parable is meant to arrest the hearer or reader in such a way that he or she must think of things in a new and unaccustomed manner” (Cunningham & Kelsay, 2013).

Jesus: The ONLY Way and Guide to Eternal Life with God - Throughout the Bible the author(s) and, by default, Jesus try to reassert the importance of Jesus and his calling. They try to illustrate Jesus as the leader to human kind’s salvation and the only way to God. This depiction of his importance isn’t always subtle but hidden between the lines and in parables. Jesus found a way to stress his importance regardless of what his preaching topic is. Luke 6:39 is a good example of that.

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.

It is vital to our theology that Jesus was sinless.

For Paul the transition of the person from sin to grace relates to the person’s identity and belonging. Sin, in Romans 6:1-14, means less a person’s actions specifically and more the claims to which a person belongs.

Judiasm And Jesus Christ - Judaism and Jesus Christ Judaism is the first of the world’s oldest religions to believe in only one god. God made a covenant of grace with Abraham, who is considered the world’s first Jew. He accepted God’s covenant by faith, and so by extension, the people of Israel (Barnes 88). The Jewish people have been persecuted, forced into exile and dispersed for most of their history.

Is Homosexual Activity a Sin? - Introduction Perhaps you’ve heard these before. “I can’t trust a book that commands stoning people for trivial offenses.” “Homosexual activity is a sin. Well so is eating shellfish and mixing fabrics!” As these statements and others like them indicate, it is common for non-Christians and Christians alike to not understand the relationship between Old Testament law and the Christian life that is built on Christ. It is important to have an answer to give to the honest seeker, confused Christian, or hostile skeptic....   [tags: christians, gospel message] 2837 words

Who is Jesus? - Before this semester I had never taken a moment to ask myself - Who is Jesus. It is something that I have never been given the option to question. Being brought up in a strong Christian background, where I went to mass every Sunday, and then following mass, went to bible school for two hours, ingrained a specific image of Jesus into my head. This image portrayed Jesus as a white man who preformed miracles for the poor and oppressed, and also sacrificed himself on the cross for all of humanity’s’ sins....   [tags: both biblical and rational evidence] 1229 words

Crucifixion of Jesus Christ - In this report we will deal with Crucifixion of our Lord Jesus Christ. This report we'll have as bible text the gospel of Matthew 27:32-50, and these verses will be analyzed verse by verse. It's very great to observe that all gospels talk about Jesus' Crucifixion in a larger section than others events from his life. There is a great reason: for Jesus this last part of his work means the finishing God's plan of salvation.

Sin: Past and Present - It is hard to tell the difference between a Christian and a non-believer in today’s society, for believers have conformed to the ways of the non-believers. The Bible defines sin as “transgression of the law” (King James Version Bible, 1 John 3:4). Wikipedia defines sin, in religion, as an act that violates a known moral rule. However, Christians’ attitudes towards sin have changed drastically over the centuries.

Because of this, Jesus was sent to bridge that great divide by atoning for our sins. However, Jesus did not remove the issue of sin, for we still sin today, but he took the blame for it.

Augustine took a personal approach to grace and he believed in the massa damnata, which basically means that on the whole people are damned. He said before the original sin, you had a choice to be good or evil.
