The Portrait Of Jesus In The Gospel Jesus

Good Essays
The portrait of Jesus is portrayed in the Gospel Matthew with Jesus being seen as the healer and a miracle worker. This is where everyone started to see Jesus differently and gain a new perspective of Jesus. He performed miracles that the people deemed as not possible. One example, is when Jesus stepped into a boat, crossed over and came to his own town. 2 Some men brought to him a paralyzed man, lying on a mat. When Jesus saw their faith, he said to the man, “Take heart, son; your sins are forgiven.” Jesus then told the man to get up and walk and the man was healed.

This is the story of when Jesus was with the disciples and fed the five thousand people, using only the few loaves and fish of the small boy. As the gospel said, the crowds of people were all gathered in a remote place and it was getting late and the disciples wanted to send the people away to the village so they could buy some food. Jesus replied saying it was a bad idea and that we should just feed them the loaves of bread and fish. There wasn 't enough and Jesus looked and prayed to heaven and gave thanks and broke pieces for everyone to eat.

He is viewed as a healer, both physically and spiritually. Each of the four gospels are portrayed in everyday life. The healing part is portrayed throughout church every day because churches do a great job of trying to heal the people of the church who attend and have disabilities or injuries of such. An example would be when Oral Roberts University does the Fall Revival every year. It is a ceremony where people go and hear the sermon of Dr. Mark Rutland and hear him preach about today’s problems. At the end of his presentation he heals those in need of help and does not stop until they are healed. This is a great example because it shows that we too can have faith in Jesus and heal others or make them feel better to help others. An example of miracle/miracles workers in modern churches would be when we say prayers to God when we are going through struggles. We are taught to have great faith in him when we pray because He will provide a great miracle that will relieve us from our issues in life. Jesus’ life is shown every day in society when you go to church and they speak of his life. Even students here at ORU are trying to show you the word of God and just spread his word and the knowledge that he knows in order for others to have the faith in him and know of his occurrences in life. An example of today’s society about Jesus being humble would be when he used to perform miracles and exorcisms he did not want the world
