  • Knowledge Of 2 Peter
    1,833 words
    Authorship and Canonicity. None book in NT has been so disputed as to authorship and canonicity than 2 Peter. There are convincing arguments for and against Peters relation to this book. Arguments against Pauls authorship: 1. The style differs from that of 1 Peter. 2. Knowledge of 2 Peter was geographically limited. 3. The conceptual and rhetorical language is too Hellenistic for a Galilean fisherman. 4. Christian writers do not mention 2 Peter in the second century. 5. It could be a pseudonymou...
  • Study Jesus
    1,399 words
    Theologians and philosophers have been trying to question who Jesus is for hundreds of year now. This time in the form of what is called the contemporary study of Christology. The thrust of Christology is somewhat dependent upon which theologian one reads. Hans Kung calls his approach Christology from below. Others simply focus on the crucifixion and the resurrection of Christ (Cunningham); others are exploring His life and work on earth (Imbelli). Some deny the fact that Jesus is God (Kung), ot...
  • Relationships With God And Jesus

    Luke 1: 26-52 The Annunciation When I read the Annunciation, I didn t understand Mary's reaction. The exact words were Mary was greatly troubled at his words [ Greetings, you who are highly favored! The Lord is with you ]. She didn t show enough emotion. I mean, an angel appeared to her. If that happened to me, I d have created a me-shaped hole in the wall. I also don t understand why the angel Gabriel didn t punish Mary for questioning him like Zechariah did. Zechariah was silent for nine month...
  • Following Jesus Example
    897 words
    Jesus was raised in Nazareth in the home of Joseph, a carpenter, and his wife Mary. Jesus most likely went to school in a room attached to the synagogue. Hew as a faithful Jew and followed all the Jewish customs. Jesus was a human being. God took on a human form in Jesus in order to live life like we do. God's love for us is unconditional and infinite. To communicate with us in a personnel way like we do with our friends and family, there was no better way for God to be with us than for God to b...
  • Jesus And His Disciples
    3,683 words
    Discipleship At the mention of the word 'disciple', the image most people conjure up is that of a faithful pupil, a person more than willing to follow the teachings of their leader without question. However, the early disciples didn't always conform to this stereotype. In fact, they sometimes showed a complete lack of faith, finding it extremely hard to accept Jesus' word in their hearts. Jesus appointed twelve disciples to symbolize each of the twelve tribes of Israel. In doing so, it were as i...

  • More Humanistic Jesus
    536 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...
  • Their Faith In Jesus Christ
    301 words
    Aleksandr Menn After reading this man's story I began to consider my own faith. I know a martyr is someone who dies for their faith in Jesus Christ. But this man's story seemed to have an added element to it. Not only did he his faith cause his death but it brought about many to eternal life. This man was able to bring faith to many through his words. I consider anyone who can be a public speaker to be talented and bringing people to God is an amazing gift. In a time of mistrust and uncertainty ...

  • Angry With The Gnostic Teachers
    1,878 words
    HS 1102 Sept 16, 1994 note: this paper is a response to an assignment to discuss the rhetorical devices used by Irenaeus in his polemic against the gnostics. Combatting the Heresy of the So-Called Gnosis You, sibling in the faith and fellow teacher of the church, ask both why I am so angry with the Gnostics and with what rhetorical and theological weapons I fight them. To be brief, I am angry at the ways they alter the faith I hold dear and at the success they have at leading souls astray souls ...
  • Jesus To The Romans
    2,477 words
    In this essay, I am to define the meaning of discipleship, for the first disciples and for Christians today. The word disciple means to learn, but there are many differences between disciples today, and disciples 2000 years ago, in the midst of a hostile Roman Empire. The very first disciples of the resurrection were the holy women, Mary Magdalene, Mary the mother of James, and Salome. If Christianity is defined as the belief that Jesus died, and was resurrected, and then to me, these women were...
  • Faith In Order
    1,216 words
    Faith is the strength by which a shattered world shall emerge into the light. -Helen Keller Although faith is required perhaps it is not all that is required in order to be saved. Within the bible there is a conflict between the doctrines of two apostles. First the apostle Paul who believed that faith alone could save a person. Next the apostle James who believed that not only faith was required, but that actions were needed as well. When the two doctrines are compared they both contain a key si...
