    Matthews Christology is one that emphasises to a Jewish audience the Jewishness of Jesus. It will be the purpose of this paper to argue that the raison detr e of Matthews Christology is to portray Jesus as entirely compatible if not with the Judaism of his day then with ancient Judaic tradition, namely the Old Testament. Whilst there are numerous titles given to Jesus that are exclusive / predominant within the Matthean account, such as that of Son of God, it is the writers assertion that these ...

  • Gospel Of Matthew Jesus Testament One
    552 words
    Response to Matthew The book of Matthew is written to the Jews. We see this because of the many quotes from the Old Testament. The Jews knew the Old Testament better than anyone of that time, and they should have been looking for the messiah that was promised. The main point that Matthew was trying to make by his book it that, Jesus was the messiah promised to us in the Old Testament. That is why he used so many quotes because he wanted to show the Jews that Jesus was the promised messiah. One m...

He was able to experience firsthand all of the amazing miracles that Jesus performed. God inspired his words, and his gospel relate...

    One would think that the story of Matthew Shepard would bring people together over a tragic event. On the contrary, Matthew Shepard's death seemed to pull the nation apart, due to people's conflicting points of view. Should Matthew's heartbreaking death be seen as any other killing, or should everyone take it upon himself or herself to be responsible for what happened to Matthew? When reading the article "Blood on our Hands", I believe that the writer had a strong position about his argument. Ph...

    Chocky The Novel Chocky was written by John Wyndham and was later adapted into a TV drama by the BBC. The producers, Pamela Lonsdale and Vic Hughes, kept the same title for the TV series as the Novel, and named it Chocky, but the Film text had some changes in events, different character interpretation and alternative way of showing foreshadowing.

  • Son Of Man Sabbath Matthew Mark
    587 words
    When you think of Sabbath, you think of a holy day, a day of rest and relaxation for both man and animals. The word Sabbath comes from the Hebrew word meaning "day of rest." The Sabbath day is God's day of relaxation after he finished the creation of the earth. Matthew, Mark, and Luke each tell about the Sabbath dispute, but each gospel tells their story differently. Matthew chapter 12 begins with Jesus walking through the cornfields with his disciples when they became hungry. Because of their h...

    Exegesis of the Gospel according to Matthew Chapter 5: 3-12 The Eight Beatitudes In Matthew's Gospel, starting with Chapter five verses three through twelve, Jesus tells us of the Eight Beatitudes.

    Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John Theocentric Studies-Part I February 2, 1996 The four Gospels are neither histories of the life of Christ nor biographies. They are portraits of the person and work of the long promised Messiah, Israel " king and the world's Savior. As portraits they present four different poses of one unique personality. Matthew by the Holy Spirit presents Christ as King, Mark as Servant, Luke as Man, and John as God. Although featuring Christ as King, Matthew sketches His role as a...

    The new testament contains four (4) accounts of the story of Jesus' life, death and resurrection as presented by Matthew, Mark, Luke, John, The 3 accounts are similar, while Johns bible presents Jesus in a unique way. These differences exist because Matthew and Luke got their information from Mark and John got his information from another source, maybe John did not have access to the other gospels or he chose not to use them. No one really knows the source of John's gospel and we don't know for ...
  • Gospel Of Matthew Jesus Faith God
    508 words
    Matthew portrays a very God like, all-powerful Jesus, with very few humanistic characteristics. Matthew 2: 3, "at this news King Herod became greatly disturbed." I thought the king would be happy to hear about the birth of Jesus. Apparently the kings intentions were not very nice. I really find this passage interesting, mainly because it separates God from the kingdom. Meaning the King has power and is afraid of losing it to the Son of God. Matthew's description of healing is very interesting; h...
  • Kingdom Of God Jesus Matthew Passage
    358 words
    Kingdom of GOD The use of the phrase " Kingdom of God" in the gospel of Matthew creates a different meaning of the idea of the word "Kingdom." The obvious interpretation of the idea of Kingdom is land that is ruled by a King. Through the works of Matthew there is distinctive effort into placing the "kingdom of god" in the passages. In Matthew 19: 23, Jesus said to his disciples, "I tell you the truth, it is hard for a rich man to enter the kingdom of heaven. Again I tell you, it is easier for a ...

It has been banned in many states in the United States and others states are resorting to capital punishment for serious offenses such as murder. An eye for an eye, a life for a life, but as Mahatma Gandhi once said, "An eye for an eye only makes the whole world blind." Do we really have the right to kill those who we believe has killed? The death penalty is a cruel and uncivilized way of punishment. In "Dead Man Walking" directed by Tim R...
