To begin with Dr. Wight lays the foundation by highlighting how for many people it appears that the story of Jesus Christ begins in Matthew 1:18. Illustrating that there
2a Explain how Peter carried out the role of leader in Acts. 35 marks Peter took on many different roles throughout the book of Acts, most notably the role as leader which I shall explain.

The apostles were filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak in tongues which showed God speaking through them. This is the gift of the Holy Spirit that Jesus had promised them.
Exegeses of Mark 10:42 – 45 Mark Gospel present Jesus as the servant King. Marks Gospel can be divided into two 2 parts. Chapters 1- 8 v30 attempts to describe who Jesus is and the other half of the gospel explains purpose for his coming. The passage that we are looking at Mark 10: 42 – 45 has a direct link to who Jesus is and why he came. Note that in chapter 8 Jesus' disciples have just understood his full identity as the their Messiah or King, this is called the turning point in Mark's gospel.
Supporting passages are added for each section where there is supporting evidence. Additionally, the historical setting in the theological history of John’s Gospel is also considered in these roles. The Holy Spirit is an Identifier of Christ to Believers (John 1:33-34; 3:34) One of the roles given to the Holy Spirit in John’s Gospel is that of identifying Christ to the believers. This role is

Warner BIB 105 New Testament July 11, 2012 Professor Joseph Roach The Kingdom of God is like a Promise The Book of Luke in the Bible records many parables that Jesus told about discipleship and the Kingdom Of God. Much of Jesus teachings were done in parables. The metaphors that were used in these stories reflected the day and age of their use. In Kim Tame’s article, The Kingdom of God is like this, the use of a metaphor for the Kingdom of God was explored by church congregations.

The theme of salvation therefore has within its grasp the relativity of religious facts. This goes to show that with the parturition of various religions there is the derivative on which salvation is defined and executed, bearing in mind such relativity, the religion of Christianity and Islam shares similarities and differences in relation to their views or beliefs. The religion of Christianity began with the mission of Jesus Christ, over 2000 years ago in Judea, now contemporary Israel.
