- 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 human.... [tags: New Testament, Jesus, Christianity, Christology]

- 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....

- 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. However, its near-exclusive focus on Jesus’ trial and death omits much of the context and significance of this event in the life and teachings of Jesus and his greater mission of the salvation of humanity....

The New Testament on a number of occasions states that man and women are created in God’s image. Until we understand the God that created us we are constantly developed until we get knowledge. The more we understand about God, the more we will be like him in character and conduct. If we do not search, learn about and love God, then we will never know and understand how, when and why people die. God talks to us in numerous of ways to save us from destruction, so let’s not reject God’s word and instruction.
