    1030 Words  | 3 Pages

    From the original Jewish wedding practices, we can see that like a bridegroom of ancient times; Jesus came to the home of His bride, which is the Earth, for a betrothal. He made a covenant with His bride, sealed the covenant with a cup of wine, paid the bride price with His life, and gave His bride gifts of the Holy Spirit. We, the betrothed church, currently await the return of our Bridegroom to take us to the wedding chamber at the Rapture; where we will spend seven years with Him, while the Great

  • Jesus the Christ: The Historical Jesus

    The Birth of Jesus We can see the birth of Jesus in Matthew (Matt 1:18-25) (Matt 2:1-12), Luke (Luke 2:1-2) and John (John1:1-18). Both Matthew and Luke tell us that Jesus’ birth place was in Bethlehem in Judea in the time of King Herod of Judea and Emperor Augustine of the Roman Empire. The gospels tell us that Jesus was born in a stable under an inn (Luke 2:7). This is unlikely because Bethlehem was the birthplace of David, who was Joseph’s ancestor. This means that there may have been a

  • The Portrait Of Jesus In The Gospel Jesus

    The portrait of Jesus is portrayed in the Gospel Matthew with Jesus being seen as the healer and a miracle worker. This is where everyone started to see Jesus differently and gain a new perspective of Jesus. He performed miracles that the people deemed as not possible. One example, is when Jesus stepped into a boat, crossed over and came to his own town. 2 Some men brought to him a paralyzed man, lying on a mat. When Jesus saw their faith, he said to the man, “Take heart, son; your sins are forgiven

  • Jesus: The Humanity Of Jesus In Scripture

    707 Words  | 2 Pages

    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. He was born human, felt human emotions, and live on Earth as a

  • The Historical Jesus, Jesus as Messiah, and Jesus the Personal Savior

    1908 Words  | 4 Pages

    Jesus Christ, the figure who changed history more than any other, did many miracles to show others that he was God's son. God gave Jesus power over nature, power over disease, and even power over death. As a young Christian, my knowledge was a little understudied, to say the least. Now, as this module comes to a close, I realize that I have learned so much!

  • Who is Jesus?

    1229 Words  | 3 Pages

    Before this semester I had never taken a moment to ask myself - Who is Jesus? It is something that I have never been given the option to question. Being brought up in a strong Christian background, where I went to mass every Sunday, and then following mass, went to bible school for two hours, ingrained a specific image of Jesus into my head. This image portrayed Jesus as a white man who preformed miracles for the poor and oppressed, and also sacrificed himself on the cross for all of humanity’s’

  • Jesus' Identity

    Jesus' Identity To discover the essence of Jesus' identity we have to study the different titles and look into the relevance of each one.

Son of God- This title is used no more than eight times in Mark's gospel and it is used to emphasise the special relationship between God and Jesus. 2

  • The Historical Jesus

    The Historical Jesus and the Christ of Faith The majority of scholars hold the belief that Jesus was merely human. They reject the idea of Gospels being eyewitness accounts, but rather they were elaborately story-telling. This manner of thinking developed over decades in both intellectual and social environments. In The Marginal Jew, John P. Meier states, "Modest data dictate modest questions and claims," (Meier, 517)", hinting that only verified data can determine the factual information about the

  • Views of Jesus

    Views of Jesus The view of whom or what Jesus was, is a common question that arises even in the Christian religion. For Christians, for granted Jesus was the messiah. Other religions and people in our world do not agree upon this belief, in Jesus being the messiah though. Religions such as Muslim and Buddhism have very different beliefs. With these different beliefs comes differing in views of Jesus Christ. The question is therefore, "If Jesus is not viewed as the messiah, or the Son of

Years after his death there were attempts to document what Jesus had said and done during his life and the preaching’s he taught (Fisher, 2008, p. 295). We know Jesus was born during the reign of the Roman Emperor Augustus. Historians believe that Jesus was born and grew up in a village called Nazareth, even though the Gospel states

  • Jesus, A Pacifist

    527 Words  | 2 Pages

    Jesus, A Pacifist Some people believe Jesus was not a pacifist. One of the main reasons is the fact that in the Old Testament there is mention of hundreds of war in which the Israelites believed God was on their side. In these wars there were often miraculous victories in which the losing city or tribe were completely wiped out. Pacifists do not believe in fighting in any form but Jesus mentioned these wars in his teachings. In Luke 4: 18-19 it says, "The Spirit of the Lord is upon me

  • Jesus Camp

    I chose to watch the movie Jesus camp. The other movies didn’t sound as interesting as Jesus Camp. When I read the summery, I thought it would be a good fit since I like watching movies that have kids. I also went to a church camp when I was younger, so I thought it would be interesting to see what “Kids on Fire Church Camp” was compared to my church camp. I will be giving a brief explanation of the movie and talking about the theme of religion and politics. Jesus Camp is a documentary that follows
