The Gospel: Jesus and History

- In the Gospels according to Matthew and that according to Luke, Jesus’ birth and childhood is narrated. While both of these accounts mention Jesus as not only being the son of Joseph and his virgin wife Mary but also the Son of God, they also have numerous differences between the two. When compared and contrasted many scholars find historical inaccuracies between the two Gospels (especially when it comes to the birth and childhood of Jesus). That being said however, after a closer look at some of the historical problems one may be able to see that they are not nearly as important as the deeper motivation they bring out to the reader about God’s kingdom, the Jewish people, and even the Gentil...   [tags: joseph, virgin mary, god´s kindom, gentiles]

Understanding Jesus' Heritage - Implications for Religous Education

- Sandra Schneiders (as cited in Ryan, 2012), describes the bible as “…an integral, even normative, part of living tradition”. This can be seen particularly in the use of the infancy narratives which tell the well-known Christmas story, in Catholic religious groups today – individual parishioners, churches and Catholic Education institutions. The text is used and heavily relied upon to inform believers and those wishing to gain insight into the Catholic religion, on the faith. It appears through contemporary scholarship, however, that the infancy gospels of Matthew and Luke present to their readers, different themes, conflicting information and two very different accounts of the significant bi...   [tags: Gospels in Bible, Christianism]
