The price for discipleship is a complete denial of yourself in the name of God . And the mission of Jesus is to bring this message to humankind through his suffering and death on the cross. In Mark's gospel Jesus provides his identity which becomes the turning point in the human history. Before He was teaching, healing the sick, had scraps with authorities and established a group of disciples . Was it his mission?
He is not here, but he has been raised.”( NAB Luke 24:2-6). Jesus was sent to Earth by God, his father, to be rejected, suffer and die, so that we may have salvation from our sins. During his time on Earth, Jesus took on various roles and amassed many followers. Some of the roles Jesus took on while on Earth were: teacher, healer, miracle worker, spiritual leader, and saviour. Through his sacrifice, people of all nations are saved from their sins, as long as they have faith in the Lord Jesus Christ.
Jesus came down to Earth from heaven even though he did not have to and died for every single person’s sins. The Gospel deepens our Christian faith and life in numerous ways. The Gospel offers instruction on how to live righteously, guides us to who we are destined to be, gives us teaching on how we can share Christ with others, and teaches us to pray and grow our relationship with Christ. In NT Wrights explanation of what is the Gospel, he explains that the world and culture is constantly changing. He is saying in order to understand the truths of the world; we must personally go seek for them.
The purpose of the Bible is for humanity to acknowledge their sins and build a relationship with God because our goal is to go to heaven. The Bible is also a guide for humanity because it demonstrates how to live life. For instance, the Bible states we should love the individuals we encounter as ourselves. Furthermore, some individuals question that if Jesus was not physically resurrected, then Christianity would be a false religion. However, after watching the video, I believe Jesus physically rose from the dead because there are many historical events to substantiate this claim.
The Bible said, “If Christ has not been raised, your faith is worthless; you are still in your sins” (1 Corinthians 15:17, NIV). When Jesus was able to overcome death he proved his ability to break the bonds of sin. This meant that forgiveness and eternal life would come to all who accepted the gift of salvation. The Resurrection showed Christ’s power over death. The Bible says, “Christ rose from the dead and will never die again.
Jesus experienced physical suffering when he made his way to Golgotha or 'The Place of the Skull'. Mark 15:22. Several Christians argue that mark wrote so much about suffering as he wanted to emphasise what it meant to follow Christ, furthermore, by becoming a Christian, you will probably have to suffer for what you believe. Those who do suffer hideous and torturous deaths, like Jesus, will also share in his resurrection. Christianity wouldn't have lasted this long, without the belief of being resurrected, resurrection also proves that Jesus is/was the Son of God, again which proves that God had the power to raise his son from death.
Jesus bridged the relational gap between God and humans. Jesus also died and was raised from the dead so that all that believe in Him shall have everlasting life. Jesus ministry here on earth was all about the one temporal thing that has eternal implications; people. As Christians, we are to become more and more like Christ everyday by laying down our lives and filling our hearts with the same desire that Jesus had on His during His
Christian culture is strongly based on Jesus Christ. Christians are the followers of Christ. But certain thinking process can affect the humans but the ultimate power goes to Jesus. He is the one god who dies for his children. The great sacrifice made my Jesus has a great impact on today’s life.
John 6:40: For this is the will of my Father, that everyone who looks on the Son and believes in him should have eternal life, and I will raise him up on the last day.” B) Do you believe the bible’s description of a bodily resurrection? I believe there is adequate supportive evidence of the bodily resurrection of Christ, including: the Bible provides the testimonies of several different eye witnesses, separated in location and time whose observations cannot be contradicted despite the abundance of disbelievers at the time Apostle Paul was in fact a staunch opponent of Christianity originally but his own observations and investigations led to him devoting his life to Jesus Christ The disciples were devout Jews and as such would have nothing to gain by leaving their previous lives behind to devote themselves to Christianity I would expect if the Jews and opponents of Christ could have, they would have presented as proof the body of
White tells us, in this chapter, that the importance of the life and death of Jesus to Christians is meaningless without the resurrection — the event that brought all other events to completion. Here, the author points out four reasons for why Jesus’ resurrection matters. First, Jesus’ resurrection matters because it allows us to trust in Him. He told His disciples of events that would happen to Him surrounding His crucifixion, including that on the third day, He would rise again (Matthew 20:17-19 TLB). Therefore, the resurrection validated the claim that Jesus was who He proclaimed He was — God in human form.
