“In the same way, let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to the Father in heaven” (Matthew 5:14). Jesus reiterates that the people of God should strive to bring glory through their actions to God so that their light shines and all the nations can be blessed. We see in Matthew that Jesus preforms many miracles, and is able to bless many people through them. “And in his name the Gentiles will hope” (Matthew 12:21). This verse, along with the ones before it, from the prophet Isaiah, explain why Jesus healed the crippled man; Jesus’s miracle will bring hope to the Gentiles.
Proclaiming himself the fulfillment of the Old Testament law and prophecies ( In response to John’s question Jesus affirms that He is the Messiah (11:1-6)) , he moves us forward into the New Testament with his teachings. This is the Gospel that gives us Jesus the teacher. It is here that he presents us with the truth, the way and the life expected of his disciples. The Beatitudes, The Lord’s Prayer, the parables and so much of what we hold central to the practice of our faith would be lost if not for Matthew. This is our introduction to Jesus Christ as so many, myself included, hold dear.
The Lord told his disciples that the Holy Spirit would be sent to teach them all things and remind them of everything that Jesus told them (John 14:26), so that the gospel wouldn’t be merely words, but a message which comes in power directly from the Holy Spirit (1 Thess. 1:5). Thus, the Holy Spirit’s role was to bring into remembrance and to help them understand that which Jesus taught them. Moreover, the Holy Spirit was to indwell the disciples. In the Gospel of John, the Lord proclaims to his disciples that the Holy Spirit “abides with you and will be in you” (Jn.
After questioning Jesus, Jesus said to them, "Very truly I tell you, it is not Moses... ... middle of paper ... ...iven me to be a better Christian and to follow His example in all aspects of my life. Also, these statements provide an amazing portrait of who Jesus is. These statements also show the undeniable love, compassion, and care that Jesus has for us. John 3:16 says: "For God so loved the world, that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life." This sums it all up.
Christ has also made a big impact on my life, and is continuing to do so every day. The Holy Bible tells about Jesus’ teachings, His death and resurrection, and His return, we, as Christians, use these stories to know how much Jesus loves us and that one day, He will return to bring us home. Jesus’ Teachings Jesus teachings were meant to bring those who listened closer to God and to know Him better. They listened to Jesus and were taught what God expects of them. Jesus was a very kindhearted and sympathetic person toward those who were suffering.
God is GREAT! “No matter the size of your problem or need, God is greater” (Roberts 183). When we accepted Jesus as our personal Lord and Savior, we became God’s “little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world” (BibleGateway). A great peace and joy came over me while reading Roberts words: “God has more people for you to reach with a message that God loves, God heals, God is the Source of every person’s total supply, and God sent His only begotten Son so that any person who believes in Him might be forgiven of sin and live with God for all eternity” (Roberts 163). This is only the beginning; God wants us to reach every person no matter their race, religion, culture or creed with His good news.
Luke's central theme sums up why I love the book of Luke. Jesus is the Savior for all people. He made promises through prophecy that are being unraveled still to this day, making a sure sign of the second coming. I read all the required text and additional texts before writing this paper.
Who is the author of this most famous book? Isaiah 66:5 tells us who inspired the writing of this book: “The word of Jehovah, put down in writing.” The benefits to reading The Bible are endless, and I believe it should be available to the entire population. The bible is very accurate, and is in harmony with science, and its own teachings. . Some points we know, to help us understand the Bible’s Divine Inspiration, is the correlation between the scriptures, and accuracy scientifically speaking, and the fact that even High Profile Scientists agree with the bible teachings.

John provides the readers of his gospel with a distinct perspective of “belief” in his writings. In the passage, “But many of the crowd began to believe in him, and said, ‘When the Messiah comes, will he perform more signs than this man has done?’" (John 7:31). Trust in Jesus Christ and what he says will bring eternal glory in heaven and that it will be granted to the patient and steadfast followers of Christ. John explores the idea that it is a belief into Jesus can allow one to witness his many signs. The coming of the Messiah will be noticed and that he will do countless good deeds and miracles, more than any man has...
