Jesus : The Humanity Of Jesus

- The humanity of Jesus is evident throughout Scripture. He was born of a woman (Galatians 4:4), and later he would die a human death. Though his conception was spiritual his birth was fully human. Jesus had human emotion. He became weary after long travels, and as depicted in John 11:35 “He wept”. His outpouring of emotion over the loss of a friend shows that he cared deeply for the people he was connected with. Jesus was fully human.

Jesus 's View Of Jesus

- In the early part of Jesus’ ministry in Galilee, opposition was scarce and Jesus enjoyed the ability to teach others mostly unhindered, but as Jesus began to perform miracles and make claims about being the Messiah, Jesus’ detractors quickly grew. As John 7:2-9 reveals, even Jesus’ own brothers showed unbelief in Jesus as the Messiah despite growing up in the same household and seeing Jesus’ miracles (Pentecost, 1981). Jesus’ brother’s doubt characterized the doubt of Nazareth (Pentecost, 1981), thus the challenge of Jesus to perform miracles at the Feast Tabernacles, was more of a taunt than a challenge to Jesus’ claims of Messiahship....   [tags: Jesus, Gospel of John, Resurrection of the dead]

Prior to the crucifixion, Jesus was in anguish and terrible stress on the Mount of Olives, because of the burden of the sins of the whole world which was laid upon His shoulders (Luke 22:42; John 1:29).

- The presentation of Jesus Christ in Mel Gibson’ The Passion of the Christ, while certainly dramatized, largely stays faithful to the presentation of Jesus in the canonical Gospels. The majority of the differences between this film and the Gospels can be considered creative choices that do not substantially change the narrative, making this film by and large an accurate representation of the scenes in the Bible.

- Jesus as a Divine Child: Son of God Luke’s Jesus is able to identify with certainty that he is human through his relationships and actions, but the same can also be said about his understanding of his own divinity. Luke allows Jesus to recognize his divinity at an early age. Even when he is only twelve, Jesus understands that he is the “Son of God.” According to Fitzmyer, Jesus’ words in Luke 2:49 are “the Gospel’s first pronouncement story…It puts on the lips of Jesus an implied statement about who he is, making manifest to his parents the way in which he is related to Yahweh—as an obedient Son of his heavenly Father.” Even more importantly, “the first words attributed to Jesus in the Luca...   [tags: Jesus, Gospel, New Testament, Christianity]

And Jesus came and said to them, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me.

For in the way that you judge, you will be judged…” (Matthew, pg. 179). To Jesus withholding judgement was crucial to stemming hypocrisy and empowering his followers to self-reflect.

Is Jesus Christ A God?

- Often in today’s world, the question is asked, “Who is Jesus?” And, the standard answer from most Catholics is He is the Son of God. While such a statement is true as far as it goes, it does not explain fully enough who Jesus really is. The Church teaches that Jesus Christ is one person having two natures. This, itself, is contrary to our human experience. We see everything around us as having a nature, but only one nature: the tree has the nature of a tree, the man has the nature of a human being, and a rock has the nature of a rock....   [tags: Jesus, Trinity, God in Christianity, God]

Joseph And Jesus : The King Of God

- A favorite character of most Bible readers is Joseph and, perhaps, his story teaches us more about the Providence of God than any other. But, it also teaches perseverance, forgiveness and faithfulness to God. Joseph was an unfortunate loser who repeatedly overcame his problems by always doing right. He refused to let negative and bad things hold him down; no matter the circumstance, he never let go of his convictions. His faith in God never wavered and his heart was so tender that he refused to hold a grudge against those who mistreated him....   [tags: Jesus, Christianity, David, Gospel of Matthew]

Jesus Christ, God And God

Jesus Christ bears the name and titles of deity in the book of Acts in Acts 2:36 the bible says, “Therefore let all the house of Israel know assuredly, that God hath made the same Jesus, whom ye have crucified, both Lord and Christ.” Kurio the Greek word translated “Lord” which is used mo...   [tags: Jesus, New Testament, Christianity, Bible]

Jesus is no longer in the tomb and instead, two “angels in white” sit where Jesus’ body once was. Upon being asked by the angels, “Woman, why are you crying?” it becomes clear that Mary is desperate to find Jesus. She begs a man (whom she believes to be the gardener) to tell her where he has put Jesus.

- Introduction When studying the Gospel message of Jesus Christ, many scholars regard the book of Romans as the most important of the apostle Paul’s letters. (Knight & Ray, 2005) This is perhaps because it contains the most in-depth exploration of Christian theology, namely justification through faith in Jesus Christ. (Hinson & Towns, 2013)The letter, especially chapters one through eight, contains a summary of what embodies a Christian worldview. Since Paul wrote to both the Jewish and Gentile believers in Rome, he provided for them, as well as readers today, a biblical perspective that answers questions about the natural world, human identity, human relationships, and culture....   [tags: Christianity, New Testament, Jesus, Bible]

Yet, John 1:14, also depicted Jesus as a God, who “lived among us,” and through incarnate life showed the world “glory,” possible only through “a father’s only son.” John 1:14 functions by, one demonstrating Jesus as God (incarnate) and by two discussing the gifts only c...   [tags: Jesus, Gospel of John, Deity, Michelangelo]
