T he Bible teaches us regarding the incredible mystery of Jesus Christ that arrived on earth to convey immense ‘beloved knowledge’ concerning God and among this conceivably exists our Godly sexual presence within humanity. The following occurs as an “attempt” to describe the greatest happening the world has ever experienced; appropriately, I profess this endeavor has instigated a humbling, for there are no words on earth that could ever come close to the power that Jesus Christ engulfed humanity with. Truthfully, it grieves me to think of how the majority of people, lack the intelligence and clarity (including myself) to accomplish such a feat; for no amount of terminology, vocabulary, or skills expressing His true existence could ever come
Gospel of John This essay will show contrasts in views on the Gospel of John regarding authorship,dates, and the relationship between John's Gospel and the Gospels of Matthew, Mark and Luke. Some comparison of thought, concerning composition and life setting, will also be presented. The majority of the information that we have today, describing the earthly ministry of Jesus Christ, is contained in the four Gospels. The Gospels of Mathew, Mark and Luke, are called the Synoptic Gospels. The Gospel of John differs in many key areas to the Synoptics,and I will address some differing lines of thought.
The Gospel according to Matthew, although being the first book of the New Testament canon, it was not considered the first gospel genre to be written. Matthew’s gospel gives an account of the life, ministry, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ of Nazareth. In this essay, I intend to look at how the exegesis and interpretation of this gospel may be affected by our understanding of the authorship, its intended readership and where and when it was written. Although all these categories are important in their own right, I will focus more of the intended audience and readership of this gospel.

Ultimately, the gospel is based on our progression towards our divine potential predicated on our obedience to the commandments of God. Through a simple and seemingly “plain” dictation, Nephi is able to truly signify the importance of even the most basic of the principles of the gospel. If we “believe in Christ [we] will believe in these words, for they are the words of Christ.” (2 Nephi 33:10) With prayer we can come to an understanding of the doctrine of Christ and how it can guide us in our lives. “For behold, this is my work and my glory- to bring to pass the immortality and eternal life of man.” (Moses 1:39) Through our faith, baptism, the gift of the Holy Ghost, continual repentance, and enduring to the end we will be saved in the kingdom of Heaven. Jesus Christ loves us so much that he provides a way for us to learn and to grow, through his gospel, because he wants us to come back to live with Heavenly Father
One of the more surprising features of the Christian faith is that it produced at its very beginning a substantial body of writings. That this should be the case is by no means a necessity: not all religious movements produce writings. Furthermore, that these writings should be collected into one book and thus become a sacred corpus, and that this sacred corpus should continue to influence the life of believers and to determine the content and the practices of the faith two thousand years later is also remarkable.
The Gnostic Gospels In this essay, I will discuss about the Gnostic Gospels. To discuss this matter, I will divide this paper in a few key points. The first is what Gnosticism is. The second is the
