The Son of God, the Messiah, the Lamb of God, whatever name you prefer to call Him, His name is Jesus Christ. His teachings were full of information that followers used to get closer to God and to be able to understand the words of the Father. From His death to His resurrection, Jesus always showed courage and hopefulness because He knew that He was going home. There are many books in the Bible that speak of the second coming Jesus Christ, in just the New Testament alone, 23 out of the 27 books speak of His return. 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 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. He also recognized and rewarded the faith that people showed in Him. In Matthew 5-7, Jesus sat down on the mountainside to teach His disciples as the crowds started gathering around Him, and so began the Sermon on the Mount. He told them “You are the salt of the earth. But what good is salt if it has lost its flavor?” (Matthew 5: 13, NLT). And later said, “You are the light of the world…No one lights a lamp and then puts it under a basket” (Matthew 5:14, 15). He was telling them that they need to be the salt, the light, they need to tell people about God and all His glory because no one else will. His teachings that day were about anger, divorce, loving their enem...

...ose who listened closer to God and to know Him better. Without the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ, there is no salvation from sin, there is no eternal reward, and there is no real hope. We, as Christians, believe that He will someday return again when we least expect it. The day that I accepted Christ into my heart was the day that my eyes were opened. I am blessed to be able to know Jesus and to have somebody who loved me so much, that He died so my sins could be forgiven. He said, “You are the salt of the earth,” (Matthew5:13) we, as Christians, need to stand up for God when everyone else sits down. Christians use Jesus’ teachings from the Bible to help them understand what God expects them to do, the love that Christ had because He sacrificed Himself but then rose again, and that one day, He will return again to bring all of His followers’ home to Heaven.

- In Professor Martin Espinosa’s class, The Life and Teachings of Jesus, he postured two very thought-provoking questions. He asked, why did women follow the historical Jesus Christ in the numbers they did in the gospel. I want to use the answer to the question as a backdrop as I development my argument in relation to the strains between black men and women and its implications. The answer is that Jesus gave women an alternative to being treated as property or as people. In treating them like people, Jesus was able to effectively tend to their needs, thereby affirming their value to humanity.... [tags: Black people, White people, Race, Jesus]

There is very little agreement between the Synoptic gospels and the gospels of John. When it comes to Jesus’s baptism the Synoptics say he was baptized by John the Baptist and after he went into the wilderness where he was tempted by the Devil.

- God’s written law is something that is and should be continuously turned, to not only when Christians find themselves in need, but also throughout in one’s daily life. The four gospels tell to story of Jesus’ life and his teachings he gave while on the earth making it possible for there to be a true example of Christ-like faith. The proposition that there are differences in the story of Jesus and in his teachings seems to question the basis upon which the Christian faith is found upon. Rather than proclaiming the gospels as falsehoods because on the differences they possess, by analyzing the differences in the context of the particular gospel it can be understood that the differences are not...
