  • Jesus And Teddy Use Analogies
    656 words
    In "Teddy" by J.D. Salinger, Teddy is illustrated as a Christ figure. Many aspects of his life are similar to those of Jesus. Salinger created in Teddy a mirror-image of the real Christ. From a very young age, Teddy displays a profound understanding of the universe and life itself, exhibited by his deep conclusions about everyday life. For example, when he is watching the floating orange peels out of the ships porthole, he says "Its interesting that I know about them being there. If I hadnt seen...
  • 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...
  • Jehovah Elohim
    316 words
    This is a very short paper about the life of Christ. When I started this paper it was out of mere joke. Now I have ended up being a true follower of Christ. Jesus was borned to a virgin named Mary. I think we all at lease know that much about Christ. Mary was not married when she conceived Christ. She was dating a man named Joseph. Whom she was engaged to be married to. Of course Joseph was not going to marry Mary when he found out she was pregnant The angel of God spoke to Joseph and told him t...

    The Virgin Birth of Jesus Old Testament Fulfilled Prophecies The Virgin birth of Christ is an actual Historical fact. God came (in the sinless form of Jesus) into the earth 'HE' created. No other event in the past has had so much impact out side of Calvary where Christ paid the price for our transgressions. Seven hundred years earlier, this was prophesied by the prophet Isaiah and it came about just as predicated in (Matthew 1: 22, 23) In Isaiah 7: 14, we take notice what the prophet Isaiah said...

    Sense experiences / depth experiences: not limited by the empirical data-the really "real" is not necessarily able to be seen. Religious Experience (depth experience): Not just a sense experience, an experience that causes people to change, always touches on the "other" (the transcendent) -that which goes beyond our understanding (anything that we can come up with) (ie... who can really explain the sunset? ).

  • Live Everyday For Christ

    The Doctrine of Salvation (Soteriology) God provides us with everything we need; we see this in Genesis where he provided Adam everything he needed. Jesus became a man by reincarnation a verse to support this is John 1: 14 "The word became flesh and made his dwelling among us. We have seen his glory. The glory of the One and Only, who came from the Father, full of grace and truth. Jesus was perfect he did not even yield to the temptations of his nature unlike the people around him. It says in Jo...
  • The Blood Of Jesus Christ His Son
    2,736 words
    Who is the 'Living Christ' of Mormonism? By Bill McKeever 'In bearing testimony of Jesus Christ, President Hinckley spoke of those outside the Church who say Latter-day Saints 'do not believe in the traditional Christ. ' 'No, I don't. The traditional Christ of whom they speak is not the Christ of whom I speak' (LDS Church News, week ending June 20, 1998, p. 7). 'It is true that many of the Christian churches worship a different Jesus Christ than is worshipped by the Mormons or The Church of Jesu...
  • Christ's Deity And Divine Mission
    562 words
    Preexistence of Christ Advanced Information The p reincarnate existence of Christ may be 'only a simple, contemplative inference backwards from the spiritual glory of the present Christ' (Deissmann); certainly its clearest expression is found in later writing reflecting upon the rudimentary messianic, even adoption ist, assessment of Christ in the primitive Christian community (Acts 2: 22 - 23; 10: 38). Yet preexistence is at least implied in words of Jesus himself: 'The son of man came'; the ow...
  • Impeccability Of Jesus Christ
    5,465 words
    The New Testament authors had no qualms about declaring that Jesus was truly human and telling us that Jesus committed no sin. Bible passages such as 2 Corinthians 5: 21, Hebrews 4: 15, 1 Peter 2: 22 and 1 John 3: 5"witness that He [Jesus] did not give in to temptation, nor violate the moral standards of God, nor was He inconsistent with the nature of his character". That is, Jesus was sinless. It is vital to our theology that Jesus was sinless. For only if Jesuswas sinless could His death have ...
  • Meaning Of The Preexistence Of Christ
    488 words
    Pre Existence of Christ Charles Ry rie defines the pre-existence of Christ as meaning that; "He existed before his birth" (Basic Theology, 273). This is an essential part of Christology in the sense that if Christ did not exist before the virgin birth, then what can we believe of the Bible? The Bible gives us direct statements concerning Christ's pre-existence. Through these statements one can see the meaning of the preexistence, the importance of the preexistence, and the evidence for the preex...
  • Name Of The Lord Jesus Christ
    2,097 words
    Why We Baptize in Jesus' Name Introduction The subject of water baptism has long been called a great issue and no doubt has been made such by many church leaders of the past and present. In our study of it, let us first consider its importance, or the necessity of being baptized. The Importance of Water Baptism Christian water baptism is an ordinance instituted by Jesus Christ. If it is not important in the plan of God, why did Jesus command it in Matthew 28: 19? And why did Peter follow up by s...
  • Luke As Man And John As God
    600 words
    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...
  • Life Of Jesus Christ
    761 words
    Jesus Christ lived a very full, if short, life. He did and accomplished more in his thirty years than many men do in twice that. The gospels each tell their versions of his life. Of the four, I found the gospel of Mark to be the most interesting. I enjoy the style of writing in this gospel more than the others. I feel it gives a better summary of the events in Christ's life. Whereas the other gospels tend to get bogged down with parables or spend too much time on specific events, the gospel of M...

But, radioactive carbon dating has proved that it was made in the Middle Ages, and yet, many people still go and visit it. In order to understand his point, he gives us three different facts. "The image that is on the shroud has a relationship so deep with all the things the Bible tells on the Passion...

  • Argument Of Jesus Christs Peccability
    5,512 words
    An examination of the question of the impeccability of Jesus Christ Essay written by T. Swan The New Testament authors had no qualms about declaring that Jesus was truly human and telling us that Jesus committed no sin. Bible passages such as 2 Corinthians 5: 21, Hebrews 4: 15, 1 Peter 2: 22 and 1 John 3: 5 witness that He [Jesus] did not give in to temptation, nor violate the moral standards of God, nor was He inconsistent with the nature of his character.

  • Jesus Christ As A Servant
    496 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". Reading the rest of the verse, the idea that not only did Christ come to be a servant, but he came to be a suffering servant comes to light, "and to give his life a ransom for many". 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...
