The first five books of the bible best known as the Old Testament best describe the story of Israel from the creation of the world to the death of Moses. The Old Testament describes a special relationship between God and his chosen people and there is a strong emphasis on laws required to be followed and obeyed by all the child of God. Also the Old Testament talks about the Babylonian Exile which is the disaster that God created to destroy every creation on the earth caused by the loss of faith of their people.

This story gives us a understanding on how important is to always worship God and never take credit away from him, for everything we do we do it in the name of God. While Moses was faithful to God 99 percent of his life only one sin was enough to prohibit him the entrance to the promise land. We should make sure to understand that God chooses the weakest people to perform miracles trough them. Moses story provides us with sufficient faith and courage to follow Gods law everyday and to understand that if we sin we should always regred and ask God for forgiveness.

- Throughout the world, people universally recognize the cross as the central symbol of Christianity. Within the church, the cross represents God’s eternal love, justice and Jesus Christ.

How could Jesus be born of one with a sinful nature and be a perfect Savior, be a perfect high Priest, be a Perfect Mediator, be a perfect Sacrifice, be a perfect King and Lord.

If Jesus was born of a sinful woman, He would have also inherited the Adamic sinful nature that would have made Him imperfect and unworthy to save humanity. For the bible said all have sinned, every human being have sinned and fall short of the glory of God (Romans 3:23).... [tags: Jesus, New Testament, Christianity]
