Keeping Christ in Christmas

- Have you thought about the current religious and social scene in America; especially during this time of year of Christmas. Religion has once again been forced to the forefront of the news, with groups fighting over whether to have a “Nativity Scene” in the public square, others are debating about using the word “Christmas” in their sales ads, and then we hear schools are not going on “Christmas break” but winter break. In our changing society, I wonder if anyone of us has stopped to ask what did God intend by sending His Son, Jesus Christ to this earth....   [tags: religion, christmas, jesus christ]

The Illegal Proceeding of Christ's Trial

- There were many, many illegal things that happened at Jesus' trial. Their goal was to get Him condemned, not to truly and lawfully find out if He was guilty. They had been trying for a long time to find a way to put Him to death. Now, they had him in their hand and they did their best to get rid of Him. “If these men had intended to conduct a legal trial, a specific charge would have been made against Christ, and a warrant for His arrest would have been issued.”1 Since this was not what they wanted, they just twisted things to help them succeed in there agenda....   [tags: Jesus Christ, Bible, Trial, Blasphemy]

Before Paul begins dealing with the issue at hand, he is encouraging Philemon. 8Therefore, although in Christ I could be bold and order you to do what you ought to do, Paul didn’t shy away from correcting others when necessary, but in this instance he is choosing not to command Philemon do the right thing. Instead he will appeal “on the basis of love” as seen in the next verse....   [tags: New Testament, Jesus, Epistle to Philemon, Christ]

Mel Gibson's The Passion of the Christ

I came into the night prepared to watch the death of Jesus Christ. However, I had no idea that I would actually be watching the death of Jesus Christ. For ten or more years prior to this night, I had always been told that Jesus had died on a cross for my sins.

The Crucifixion of Jesus Christ

- "For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life." This verse - John 3:16 - is perhaps the most important in the Bible. Jesus Christ was the son of God, but he was also the son of man. Jesus had a human mother, Mary (see Luke 1:30-31 for example), but his father was God (see John 3:18 for example). Jesus was human, not God. Consider 1 Timothy 2:5:"For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus;" There could not be a clearer statement that Christ was a man....   [tags: Essays about Jesus Christ]

The Impeccability of Jesus Christ

Bible passages such as 2 Corinthians 5:21, Hebrews 4:15, 1 Peter 2:22 and 1 John 3:5 “witness that He [Jesus] did not give in to temptation, nor violate the moral standards of God, nor was He inconsistent with the nature of his character.” That is, Jesus was sinless.

He planted a garden in Eden and put the man there. Out of the ground God made every tree pleasant to see and good for food." (Nietzsche) For the serpent had told Eve that the tree of knowledge of good and evil would not harm her or Adam, they chose to eat from it, without listening to the command of God.

Jesus Christ Would Support the Death Penalty

- Capital punishment, as ordained by God, is the only way to reduce crime in a long-lasting form. Although there are many who would refute this claim, the Bible holds its ground when it comes to the issue of capital punishment. The Bible has stood for, and will continue to stand for, capital punishment. Since God was the one who first initiated capital punishment, we should look to His Word to find the origin of it. Capital punishment was instituted when God told Adam and Eve “ the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die.” Genesis 9:6 also references capital punishment by stating, “Whoso sheddeth man's blood, by man shall his blood be shed.” Exodus 21:12 echoes this saying with...   [tags: Jesus Christ and the Death Penalty]

The Christ Of The Salvation

- ... So, with Christian salvation, one is called to “obedience of faith,” the proper response of action on top of the faith he has. This is the category in which baptism falls, so it does not counter Paul’s words in Ephesians 2, since Paul is not referring to “obedience of faith,” but rather to those “works of merit” which are done to earn salvation. This Campbellist counter would be effective if it were not for the Biblical examples of individuals ‘saved by faith.’ Perhaps the most noteworthy example of this is the ‘sinner on the cross’ in the passion narrative of the Gospels....   [tags: Baptism, Christianity, Jesus, New Testament]

The Swoon, Theft, Wrong Tomb, and Hallucination theories are false because Christ did, in fact, rise from the dead.

John's Account of the Life of Christ

- John’s gospel was written last, and contains the mostly unique information about Jesus. His purpose for writing this gospel was to convince the readers that Jesus was who he claimed to be, and for them to put their trust in him. Another principle theme is Jesus’ deity, which can be seen in more than a dozen passages. Within the book of John, there are only seven miracles, each are different, and five of them are unique to John. Unlike all the other gospel accounts, John begins his book not with Jesus’ birth, but with a theological prologue explaining the reasons and nature of Jesus’ incarnation as well as the purpose he had in taking on human flesh....   [tags: jesus, bible, john's gospel]
