  • 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...
  • Gospel Good News
    558 words
    Gospel Gospel is defined as the good news. In the New Testament times, gospel did not attribute to a book or manuscript, but to a proclamation or message. It was normally referred to as a proclamation of the good news. The good news usually consisted of a victory in battle or other news for the Romans.

    Rauschenbusch: A Man Ahead of His Time "Theology is the esoteric thought of the Church." (WR 15) What is meant by this is that theology is a part of the Church that is very mysterious and confusing to most laymen.

  • Gospel A Matter Of Definition
    1,450 words
    Gospel, A Matter of Definition Reasonable God-talk presupposes that we agree on the meanings of the terms we use. A foundational term for Christian theology is gospel. This term, however, has had multiple referents. This paper explores referents for gospel and their implications. Theological authors are often inconsistent in their definition of gospel.

It is the most significant manuscript ever found for the history of earliest Christianity. When the gospel was written is question many schola...

While the Gospels are not necessarily considered classics, they have, indeed stood the test of time. Almost 2000 years after Jesus lived, people ...

    A Revolutionary Radical: Jesus in the Gospels Lib enter hominem id quod volun t credant. - CAESAR Jesus might have existed as a mortal, but it is unlikely that he existed as the Holy Son of God. Since most of the writings about him were written decades after his death it is more likely that his legend was used as political propaganda. This leaves us today with many difficult if not impossible to answer questions. If Jesus died because he was a radical revolutionary and not because he was the Son...
  • Gospel Of Mark Christians Are Call
    479 words
    Chapter 10 verse 45 of the Gospel of Mark portrays Jesus Christ as a servant, "For the Son of Man came not to be served but to serve."

The call of the Christian, in accordance with its basic conviction to be Christ-like, translates here into a call to be a servant. Christ charges his disciples with this call in Mark...
