  • Preexistence of Christ

    519 Words  | 2 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

  • Death Of Christ

    2426 Words  | 5 Pages

    The Death of Christ EXAMINATION I chose to look into Jesus death and the people who were involved in it. The first group of people who got hold of Jesus was the Roman soldiers. They were probably the most innocent in the whole thing. Granted they did perform the actual act of crucifying Christ, but it was because of the order that Pilate gave them. 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’s activity, I have realized just how important my relationship with Christ is if I am to be an effective teacher.

By doing various activities on

  • Resurrection Of Christ Research Paper

    1107 Words  | 3 Pages

    The indisputable historical fact of the resurrection of Jesus Christ has been a subject of debate in the academic field in every generation. For Orthodox Christians, this is an indisputable absolute truth, but for the skeptics it is a historical fact impossible to prove.

  • Why Jesus Christ Is To Me

    1035 Words  | 3 Pages

    “Who is Jesus Christ to you?” When first presented with this particular writing prompt, I quickly dismissed it as being “easy” to write. However, as I brainstormed the meaning of this question, I realized that writing this essay would be more difficult than I originally thought. I wondered how I could possibly illustrate the extent of who Jesus Christ is to me in a single personal essay. I then realized that as hard as I try to put everything Jesus Christ is to me into words, I would never be able

  • Comparing Billy Budd and Christ

    3108 Words  | 7 Pages

    Comparing Billy and Christ in Billy Budd Herman Melville's Billy Budd provides us with a summation and conclusive commentary on the ambiguities of moral righteousness and social necessity. The conflict that arises pitting natural justice in opposition to military justice essentially deliberates over whether the sacrifice of the individual is required for the continuum and conservation of social order. The deep allegorical theme of the passion of Christ that resides in Billy Budd illustrates

  • The Impeccability of Jesus Christ

    5225 Words  | 11 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

  • Reflection Paper On Abiding In Christ

    1118 Words  | 3 Pages

    ”Abiding in Christ” is a beautiful book that concentrates on breaking down the words spoken from John in chapter fifteen. Throughout chapter fifteen there are three main points to be considered. The vines and the branches, Jesus’s love, and the hate that he knew was coming. “Abiding in Christ” gives us Christians what they need, showing us how to abide in Christ (John 15:1-8) and abide in Christ’s love (John 15:9-25). This book does both jobs and wraps it up with a clear conclusion. Firstly, abiding

  • Christ And The Cross Is A False Dichotomy

    887 Words  | 2 Pages

    Christ and the Cross is a false dichotomy that exists in the church today. Many Church leaders today are saying that the Cross is not necessary. They tend to separate the two, but Christians without the Cross is like Christianity without Christ. Which means, there can be no Christianity without the Cross and the Christ of the Cross. Many of them are saying that the Cross should not even been emphasize; that the Cross is a form of idolatry; that the Cross is an inconceivable child abuse; and some

  • Galahad as a Christ Figure

Also, he made life better for human beings by sacrificing himself for others, he preformed miracles, and he heard holy voices and saw holy visions.

Two of the major name references to the biblical version deal with Superman (Kah-lel) and his father, Jor-el. In the Greek language

  • Passion of the Christ

    562 Words  | 2 Pages

    The Passion of the Christ is one of many films about the life of Jesus but this particular one is different to the others. Released in 2004, directed by Mel Gibson and filmed in the ancient Aramaic language, `The Passion' focuses mainly on the death of Christ and shows us the full extent as to what he suffered to save mankind. Before seeing The Passion of the Christ I hadn't heard much about it except that it was very violent and politically incorrect. In fact I hadn't seen or heard a review that

  • The Christ–like Prospero of Shakespeare’s The Tempest

    1367 Words  | 3 Pages

    The Christ–like Prospero of Shakespeare’s The Tempest It is not only the goodness of man which, according to traditional Christian concepts ,is not germane to himself. His very being, and his ultimate destiny stems alike from a principle that is infinitely beyond him (Morris 143). What was Prospero attempting to accomplish through the creation of the storm? Why would he go to that length of natural disaster, if the events would only end in an unharmed manner? Prospero. But are they,

    1629 Words  | 4 Pages

    George W. Bush as the Anti-Christ To really grasp the significance of the symbol of the anti-Christ we must first posit politics as itself symbolic. Politics is the semiotics of a nation's will: it becomes the People just as the People become it by being elected into office and participating in the political process, or in dictatorships, by following the rules and not forming underground movements. But in a democracy, it is an especially tight symbolic relationship, thus the clear relationship

Ultimately, both Gregor and Jesus sacrifice their lives so that they can help their loved ones, despite betrayal.  Kafka uses this biblical allegory to illustrate Gregor's Christ-like actions. In the Bible, God, sacrifices his only son, a respectable, revered "heavenly" figure, allowing Jesus to live amongst sinful people

  • Christ of the Holy Bible and Dionysus of Euripides

    690 Words  | 2 Pages

    Christ of the Holy Bible and Dionysus of Euripides Christ resembles Dionysus in many ways. Is it possible that Christ is simply an extension of the Dionysian myth? Though the concepts of wine and faith unite the two, the idea of revenge compared to self-sacrifice separates the two deities. Dionysus fits the Greek understanding of vengeful and selfish God that bear more anthropomorphic traits than Godly traits. Christ, however, transcends human desires for revenge and acts in self-sacrifice
