  • Charles Manson Aka Jesus Christ - 326 words
    Charles Manson aka Jesus Christ He has been dubbed "The most dangerous man alive". Charles Manson has been persecuted relentlessly. We call him the devil. He is the reason society is so bad. Does this sound familiar? This sounds like the same accounts towards Jesus Christ by the Roman Empire 2000 years ago. As they have nailed Christ to the cross, we have nailed Charles Manson to the cross. Could it be that Charles Manson and Jesus Christ are the same person? If you know anything about these two, the answer is: Most likely. Let us take a look at these two. Both Jesus Christ and Charles Manson led a cult that still thrives to this very day. Christ's followers are still preaching his words, as ...

  • Explain The Four Kinds Of Healing Performed By Jesus - 586 words
    Explain the four kinds of healing performed by Jesus. The four kinds or healing Jesus performed were physical healing, spiritual healing, resurrection, and moral healing. Physical healing was when Jesus healed people who suffered from physical illnesses. Examples of this kind of healing are blindness, uncontrollable bleeding, and leprosy. These kinds of healings were called miracles, exceptions to the normal course of ordinary events. Jesus made a special effort to reach out to lepers, people often neglected and scorned in his society. Through physical healings, Jesus demonstrated enormous power over nature and illness. The second kind of healing, spiritual healing was when Jesus healed peop ...

  • Gnostic Jesus - 1,525 words
    Gnostic Jesus Gnostic writings of Jesus portray him as a heavenly redeemer made less of flesh than of spirit. The emphasis of Jesus' importance is not on his physical humanness but rather, on his ability to show people the way to the kingdom. Jesus put on flesh in order to give people gnosis and reveal to them where they come from and where they will eventually return. When it is time for Jesus to return to his heavenly home, he is crucified and resurrected before he finally ascends. His body's lack of importance in some Gnostic texts gives this series of events a different connotation than other versions of the story more common today. The Gnostic understanding of Jesus gives us better know ...

  • Gnostic Jesus - 1,489 words
    ... ness of the world's sins (Groothuis). Pagels says that rather than viewing Christ's death as a sacrificial offering to atone for guilt and sin, the Gospel of Truth sees the crucifixion as the occasion for discovering the divine self within (Pagels, 95). In the Gospel of Mary, physical suffering has no reality because physicality has no reality (G. of Mary). Christ's crucifixion has a different meaning when he is not suffering on the cross for our sins. This is because in Gnosticism a person's pure soul was made good and the earth and matter were corrupted, so there is no need for forgiveness. In canonical stories, a perfect God made the earth and the people corrupted it with sin, so Chri ...

  • Jesus - 901 words
    Jesus There has never been a man like Jesus. He is considered to be the most unique person of all time. Jesus teachings have influenced many people and have changed mankind. According to Marcus J. Borg in Meeting Jesus Again for the First Time, Jesus was in a way four different people fused into one. He was a spirit person, which is a person with a deep unexplainable connection with the spirit of God. Jesus was a teacher of wisdom. He used parables and one-liners to teach about the Kingdom of God. These parables and aphorisms are the only direct connection we have with the historical Jesus. We get to read what came from him directly and we get a better sense of whom he really was. Borg also ...

  • Jesus And Apocalypses - 251 words
    Jesus And Apocalypses Who was Jesus? Why its so hard to know The author examines several methods that have evolved over the centuries in interpretation of the New Testament. Scholars try various ways to find the facts of who Jesus was and how he did the things he did. Supernatural histories were one method of explanation of the events in the New Testament. During the pre-Enlightenment years, scholars explained that events in the bible as actual truths, things that have happened for fact and by word. Science hadnt been used for reasoning yet and methods for understanding things like sickness and natural catastrophes were always linked to a supernatural source. Natural histories evolved during ...

  • Jesus And Spirit - 201 words
    Jesus And Spirit straightway coming up out of the water, he saw heaven being torn open and the Spirit descending on him like a dove (1:10). This symbolizes the creation of something new of means of the heavens. Another example of this concept emerges from the following line, "And a voice came from heaven: "You are my beloved Son, whom I love; with you I am well pleased."" (1:11). The baptism of Jesus was his attempt at associating himself with his people. It was a means of identification. He shows his intention of the many sacrifices he would make for us in this time. Jesus begins to see the Spirit in a new way. He now realizes the potential of its power. Jesus maintains great obedience towa ...

  • Jesus And The Kingdom Of God - 879 words
    Jesus And The Kingdom Of God The Gospel of Thomas is unlike any other scripture written about Jesus. It is a collection of Jesus' secret sayings that only someone who actually knew him, like his twin, would be able to recount. Jesus, in the Gospel of Thomas, is a teacher that points his followers in the direction of the Kingdom of Heaven. He explains that the kingdom is a place with no poverty, where all is revealed and that it is already inside and around them but they must learn how to find it. The Kingdom of Heaven, according to Thomas' Jesus, is within each one of us. This concept of god and the kingdom being a part of everyone is a common theme throughout the Bible (Lk 17:21). In the th ...

  • Jesus In John - 257 words
    Jesus In John Jesus in John When reading the gospels of the New Testament, it becomes evident that the personality of each of the authors affected their understanding, interpretation, and impression of Jesus and his works. In John, the gospel that I chose to read for this paper, Jesus is portrayed in a more godlike, omnipotent manner. This could be evidence that John was actually more awe-inspired than his other gospel-writing counterparts, or that he was simply trying to fully express the mood of the people that witnessed what was happening before their eyes. Realistically, even today with all of our "advanced technology," people would surely be dumbfounded by the incredible works that Jesu ...

    Jesus Is Life Jesus Life Do you see Him, do you see Him?! the little boy whispered, while tugging on his fathers robe. Shh, Simon. Patience. He will be here soon. Can you hear the crowd getting louder? John asked his son. He was trying to appear calm, but his beating heart and sweating palms gave him away. He and his son were in a crowd of hundreds waiting to see Jesus of Nazareth. People were claiming that Jesus was the Messiah they had been waiting for. John was skeptical, so he thought he would go see for himself. Jesus Christ was born in Bethlehem, the city of David. While this might seem ordinary to some, the circumstances leading up to were not.

  • Jesus Of The People - 368 words
    Jesus Of The People Jesus of the People When thinking of the physical image of Jesus Christ, one usually pictures a middle aged white, bearded male. This has been a common image for centuries; however, it is now the year 2000 and everything is changing. During this period of change and to celebrate the millennium and observe Christs birth, the National Catholic Reporter decided to sponsor an international contest which invited artists to conceive new images of Christ. Janet McKenzies painting Jesus of the People represents the complete antithesis of the common overused image of Jesus. McKenzies painting portrays Jesus as not white but black, not male but androgynous. Her image has shocked ma ...

    Jesus The Christ The healings, the miracles and all the claims without susceptible evidence are a matter of what you wish to believe. The Jesus of the Catholic faith was a man that was special and worshipped at his birth by wise men. He was the Son of God, the lord Christ, his name Jesus the word of life. His job on earth was to announce god's love to all people. He was Jesus of the suffering savior. In Mark's gospel he is a true messiah, but a messiah who will come in glory only after he has suffered and sacrificed his life for his people. We can compare the historical image of Jesus, which is based on the scientific facts to the Jesus described by the gospels. The latest image of Jesus is ...

Two men came from among the graves to meet him. They had bad spirits in them. They were so bad and strong that people feared to pass that way.

  • King David And Jesus - 358 words
    King David And Jesus King David and Jesus are alike in several ways. David was the youngest son of Jesse, a shepherd from Bethlehem. David was "discovered" by Saul when, according to one tradition, he played his harp to sooth Saul's melancholy. He later went on to slay the giant warrior Goliath, a task which amazed many, since not even trained warriors were able to defeat him. After this, he became Saul's armor bearer. He had a falling out with Saul because Saul is jealous of David and plans to kill him, but David finds out and ends up killing Saul in battle. The similarities between David and Jesus are as follows. First, both Jesus and David are connected to Bethlehem. David's father was fr ...

  • Life Of Jesus - 1,150 words
    Life Of Jesus Great Men of God Throughout history our society has chose to recognize and remember certain individuals that have had a dramatic influence on our lives. Some of these individuals were of an evil nature, such as Hitler, but I would like to believe that the majority of the people we remember were the ones that had a positive influence on history, such as Jesus Christ and Martin Luther King Jr. I would like to reflect on the men who served a higher power that they called abba, father, or as we would recognize today, God. Jesus Christ is worshiped around the world as being the savior of all mankind. His birth was a miracle because he was born from a virgin. Taken from the Holy Bibl ...

    ... Luther King Jr. was born on January 15, 1929, in Atlanta, Georgia. He was raised in the African-American Baptist church. One of the distinguishing beliefs of the Baptists is religious liberty. It "is important to Baptists who assert that man is free under God in all matters of conscience and has the right to embrace or reject religion, to choose or change his faith, and to preach, teach, and worship publicly and privately, with due respect to the rights of others." The King family was very adamant about their faith and religion. As a young boy, King was displeased with the emotional aspect of religion and was unsure of interpretations from scripture being taken literally. In spite of th ...

    Mary Mother Of Jesus In the movie that we saw during class was about Mary, Mother of Jesus. The following essay will answer the question of Mary's understanding of her role and her understanding of who Jesus was and who he was going to be. Mary, at times in this movie was extremely confused about things that were happening to her. For example, the first time that God talked to her she was confused; she didn't know what was going on. Mary had no clue whether to ignore the voice or believe it. Another example was when Mary was at the Inn giving birth to Jesus. God spoke to Mary and told her to name her son Jesus. And now with her faith in God, she was no longer confused about who was speaking ...

  • The Birth Of Jesus - 1,179 words
    The Birth Of Jesus "The Birth of Jesus" 2. Why did Mary go"with haste"to visit Elizabeth? At that time I believe that Mary had just been engaged but not married to Joseph yet. The time frame was really close to the appearance of the angel to Mary and Joseph. Mary was already pregnant at the time. Probably Mary went to see Elizabeth to talk about her situation. But in a deeper sense the meeting with Elizabeth was to encourage Mary's faith, she was given the sign that her kinswoman, Elizabeth, was also the object of God's grace in the gift of a miraculously conceived son (Layman 28). 3. What is Mary asking for with her question in Luke 1:34? Mary's complete question was: "How will this be, sin ...
