  • Preexistence of Christ

    519 Words  | 3 Pages

    Preexistence of Christ Advanced Information The preincarnate existence of Christ may be "only a simple, contemplative inference backwards from the spiritual glory of the present Christ" (Deissmann); certainly its clearest expression is found in later writing reflecting upon the rudimentary messianic, even adoptionist, assessment of Christ in the primitive Christian community (Acts 2:22 - 23; 10:38). Yet preexistence is at least implied in words of Jesus himself: "The son of man came"; the owner of

    Philemon 19 Owning Up to Christ Paul’s letter to Philemon is one of the most beautifully written books of the bible. The delicacy with which Paul approaches his good friend and brother, Philemon, immediately takes on admirable qualities. Paul needed a favor of Philemon. He was sending Onesimus to him, a new convert to Christianity. He wanted Philemon to nurture this young man’s tender new faith. But there was a catch. Onesimus had once been Philemon’s slave, who had run away, and was now returning

As I looked into crucifixion and how it started I found that before Jesus was crucified, more than 30,000 men, in Israel alone, had already been

    since Saturday has shifted from the teaching aspect, to now the Word of God in my life as a teacher. Since Saturday’s activity, I have realized just how important my relationship with Christ is if I am to be an effective teacher.

  • PreExistence of Christ

    Pre Existence of Christ Charles Ryrie defines the pre-existence of Christ as meaning that; “He existed before his birth” (Basic Theology, 273). This is an essential part of Christology in the sense that if Christ did not exist before the virgin birth, then what can we believe of the Bible? The Bible gives us direct statements concerning Christ’s pre-existence. Through these statements one can see the meaning of the preexistence, the importance of the preexistence, and the evidence for the preexistence

  • The Impeccability of Jesus Christ

    5225 Words  | 21 Pages

    The Impeccability of Jesus Christ The New Testament authors had no qualms about declaring that Jesus was truly human and telling us that Jesus committed no sin. 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. It is vital to our theology that Jesus was sinless. For only if Jesus
