Superior Essays
Introduction
Matthew, also called Levi. Jesus Christ gave Matthew the apostle this name----Levi, it means “the gift of God”. This name also represent the transfer between his sinful past and his future (follow Lord Jesus Christ) and he is not just a gift of God,he is the gift others. He proved this later in Bible stories. Levi is the son of Alphaeus and the brother of James the Less. James the Less is also an apostle of Jesus Christ. The first time Matthew appear in the Holy Bible, he is in a tax booth on the main highway in Capernaum. According to Mary, “The site of Capernaum is on the northwest shore of the Sea of Galilee, about one mile east of the Mount of the Beatitudes” (1). Capernaum is the most important place for Jesus activities in

Look back to the story that Jesus Christ call for Matthew, when Jesus Christ said: “Follow me”. This verse impressed me(Matthew 9:9 As Jesus went on from there, he saw a man named Matthew sitting at the tax collector’s booth. “Follow me,” he told him, and Matthew got up and followed him) Matthew the apostle stood up and started to follow Jesus Christ without any hesitated. Matthew the apostle to do this needs a huge brave and strong faith. It is not easy to do this. Matthew not just lost his job. He lost everything around him after he follow Jesus. He might get a lot of money for his job and he can use this to do something else, such as marry someone, go travel by himself, even make a troop to build an empire. But when he faced the most important and difficult question in his life (this changed his whole life) he choose follow Jesus. When he follow Jesus, he never betray even until he will died because he is a Jesus follower. People might take days, months even years to consider to follow Jesus Christ and God our Father or not. People should be regretted about this because God sent his only son ------ Jesus Christ to save us. Jesus Christ died on the cross for our sin. (Matthew 27:34-37 There they offered Jesus wine to drink, mixed with gall; but after tasting it, he refused to drink it. When they had crucified him, they divided up his clothes by casting lots. And sitting down, they kept watch over him there. Above his head they placed the written charge against him: this is Jesus, the king of the

    Luke starts off backwards. He begins talking about Christ and what he did in his life and then goes back to his birth with Mary and Joseph. Many believe it was written this way to put a lot of emphasis on Christ and what he did during his life. Matthew starts his gospel off beginning with Christ’s birth and then tells of what he did in his life and how he became our savior. So, Luke starts with Mary, the mother of Christ, and goes back to Adam.…

    Jesus In Matthew's Gospel

    Unlike some of the other Gospels such as Matthew, Luke traces Jesus’ genealogy back to Adam, father of all mankind instead of Abraham, father of the Jews. In Luke 3:23-38 it is shown how the genealogy of Jesus played out and how Jesus wanted to bring a relationship back to humanity that so desperately needed it. Not only are the relationships that Jesus has based upon the connection He has with God but His entire purpose is based on God. The relationship that Jesus had with mankind is based on the foundation of the relationship He has with God (Autry, 2018). In Luke 1: 32-35 it encompasses these very ideas, “Holy because of the Father he has, not because of the father he does not have.” Luke heavily portrays Jesus…

    Matthew 16: 13-20 Analysis

    In v 14 Matthew leads the reader to compare Jesus with great men of the past. As one reads, one realises that Jesus is much more than these men. He is the promised Messiah, the one they had been waiting for. For Matthew, the messiah is more than just a mere human, Jesus is the unique manifestation of God, a revelation. Peter’s confession that Jesus is the Messiah is indeed one of the key aspects of the passage and Peter’s confession of faith was a gift from God.…

    What Is Jesus Secret

    He spoke in parables so they way everyone “knows” what he is talking about, but they do not comprehend what he is saying, not even his apostles. It is not until Peter realize what Jesus is, does Jesus reveal to all his disciples that he is the Son of Man(with the help of God, Moses, and Elijah). Jesus speaks of the Kingdom of God, but only a few get what he is speaking of, but it does not stop the information from spreading to Pharisees and King Herod. When John the Baptist is killed and their safety in Galilee is no longer guaranteed, Jesus tells his disciples to spread out and speak of his preaching and to heal those in need. As they spread the word, metanoia is happening to those who listen, in which the teachings evolve to reflect the times and that Jesus interpretation of the Law of Moses is the correct way, not the Pharisees.…

    Nor could they grasp the concept that Jesus and his Father were one. Not just one in purpose and mission, but one in totality of being. But Jesus assured them that the comforter (Holy Spirit) who he would send in his name, who lead and guide them in all truth. The son of man would be revealed after they were filled with the Holy Ghost as the Son of God with clarity of understanding that Jesus is God the ‘only’ wise God. Thomas the disciple would after the resurrection of Jesus declare him to be “My Lord and my God”.…

    Simon Peter answered, “You are the Christ, the Son of the living God.” Jesus replied, “Blessed are you, Simon son of Jonah! For this was not revealed to you by flesh and blood, but by My Father in heaven. (The Holy Bible)” In this verse, Peter directly states that Jesus is Christ and Son of the living God. By saying this, he states that Jesus possesses the status of Godhood. As soon as Peter says this, Jesus tells him that God, his Father, had revealed it to him.…

    The main similarities between the nativity stories include Mary and Joseph as Jesus’s parents. Jesus was a descendant of Abraham and David, but there are discrepancies between the two accounts as to how he is. A great example that shows the similarity between the two narratives is an angel delivering the message of Jesus’s virginal conception. In Matthew, the message was delivered to Joseph and the angel quoted from an Old Testament prophet by saying “[l]ook, the virgin shall conceive and bear a son, and they shall name him Emmanuel’” (Matt 1:23). However, in Luke the message was delivered to Mary and the angel said the “Holy Spirit will come upon you, and the power of the Most High will overshadow you; therefore the child to be born will be holy” (Luke 1:35).…

    The Gospel Of John Essay

    Written primarily for Gentile believers and seekers of roughly 50-85AD (Zondervan NIV Study Bible, p.1756), the purpose of The Gospel of John is clearly stated by its author (presumed to be the apostle John) - “But these are written that you may believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God, and that believing you may have life in His name” (John 20:31). John’s Gospel differs from the Synoptics in form and perspective - but not, of course, in the basic storyline. He is born as prophesied, to much fanfare. John opens with echoing back to Genesis- “In the beginning…” and goes bigger with the point of Jesus being the fulfillment of prophecy. In John- He is God’s Word.…

    So they have narrated the origin and birth of Jesus, showing his birth and childhood in different ways but both place Jesus at the center of human hope. Saint Luke does not have to explain or reason; simply recounts, placing the birth of Jesus in the context of history and hope of humanity. He knows that Jesus is the Messiah of Israel and so should be noted, but know at the same time it is also the desired…
