Through the divinity and humanity of the Christ, Christians and believers share the stories through word of mouth. The Son of God is also evident from the sacred texts of the Gospel testimonies which include the wonders and recoveries on people achieved by Jesus, and from the witness to his death, resurrection and ascension into heaven by his followers and other eyewitnesses. The beliefs of the divinity recognise his relationship to God as Son. Jesus’s divinity showed Jesus’ role to be the salvation of humanity and to resurrect and rise to defeat death. In the Gospel of John 1:14 “The Word became
Adherents believe meaning can be found in their response to evil and suffering. A principal belief of Christianity is that God sent his only son, Jesus Christ, as a human to model how to be truly human and to reach full potential as an adherent. Adherents believe Jesus Christ was born of the Virgin Mary through the Immaculate Conception after Angel Gabriel appeared to Mary to bring her the news. It is believed Jesus Christ was sacrificed through his crucifixion to save adherents from their sins, and
340 3. Why did Paul meet with Christian leaders in Jerusalem? What was the outcome of the meeting? 340-341 1 to prove that he is a true apostke, possessing rights equal to those of the Jerusalem pillars 2 to demonstrate the validity of his gospel that Christian faith replaces works of mosaic law, including circumcision 4. How was the
He preached repentance to the nations to prepare for the coming. We see that God is preparing for the restoration of Israel and repentance of the nations to become one. Jesus accomplished by being baptized by John the Baptist that validated his ministry and, furthermore, validated is purpose as the Messiah. Wright points out the usage of Messiah as tied to the Israelites while “The Son of Man” is used by Jesus. The latter is used in Mathew, Luke, and John tied to Jesus current ministry, the suffering, dying, and resurrection, and acts of deity.
Baptism is also compulsory in Anglicanism and must be performed in a certain way unless the person has been baptised as Catholic or Orthodox. Baptists believe that Baptism is not necessary for salvation. They believe that it is an act of Christian obedience. They interpret some Biblical passages, such as Acts 8: 38, as
In modern times the dove has many meanings, it can represent; the Holy Ghost, peace, and innocence. “There are also different meanings for different colored doves. Christ redeeming man with his blood is symbolized by the red dove. The diversity of the 12 prophets is symbolized by the speckled dove.” (Parsons, 2011) In “Gregory the Great and Three Scribes” the write dove is used to represent the Holy Spirit. This was important as it taught that the text written by St Gregory was inspired by God.
Lot of persons don’t want to escape from the cage that it was created around them from the Christianity beliefs. Maybe they are using God just as an example of perfection that they can relay on, or maybe it is for them an example of supreme power that could give help and support in difficult moments. We should not forget all the way that Church made during time, and that all those proofs that gave credibility to Christianity may be all false. If god, as the father of human kind, would have existed, he wouldn’t let all those catastrophes to happen (Katrina, 2004’ Tsunami, and many others…). What kind of father would be the one that let its children to die in such terrible ways!?!
Christianity played a key role in shaping the type of people the Robin Johns came to be. Before the Robin Johns were kidnapped they would have followed the traditional religious principles, which the Efik people followed. They also participated in a secret society reffered to as Ekpe, meaning leppoard to the Efik people and Egbo to the Europeans. The Efiks religious outline was, somewhat similar to that of Christianity. Sparks says “The Efik worshiped one god, Abasi the creator of all things, often referred to as Etenyin Abasi, our father who lived in the sky(pg.62)”.
With the roots of Christianity found in Judaism, with Abraham as the founder of religions, who encouraged the belief in one God and also brought the people to the promised land. Not to forget Moses who freed the Israelites from the rule of Egypt and entered them into a covenant with God. This makes them have important similarities. They both believe that Jesus Christ or Yeshua was crucified, the belief in the existence in one God, although Christianity has the Holy Trinity, they both believe the Messiah is coming and that there is an after life. We should try to communicate better with others in this vast world of ours.
When I think about Christianity, the passage of scripture in Hebrews 11 vs 1 comes to mind” Faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen” Christianity is made up of true believers who has that Faith to know that Jesus Christ is the son of the living God . He died and rose again and according to the book of Revelation he is coming back for us to take us to Heaven to live with him eternally. The word Christian comes from the Holy name of Jesus Christ. In Hebrews 11 vs 26, they were first called Christians in Antioch.. As Christians we are guided by the Bible which is the word of God. When we read of the many fulfilled prophecies in the Bible and even with all that is happening now, there is no doubt in my mind,
