Jesus: The Son Of God And Man

Good Essays
Jesus, who is he? Does anyone truly know who Jesus is? Jesus is lived and died for mankind. Is he the Messiah, the lord, the son of God? Jesus was there to serve, and I believe that is what he did. Jesus did not lie he was honest and even if people didn’t like what he had to say he would not hid in secret. He was a servant of all. Jesus is the son of God and Man. I believe Jesus has to be both because he needs to be the same as you and I to serve and help mankind. Jesus being the son of God always gave him the power to not be tempted by sin and pure. Being the son of God, he wants to follow in his father’s footsteps for the better of humanity. Jesus even refers to God as Father. (McGrath 63) However, he has to be human so he can have humanity …show more content…
Cone’s point about who Jesus is which can actually tie in to Jesus being a servant. Cone states even that people follow historical Jesus that suffered and died to serve even in life after death. (Cone 123-124) This shows he even serves after he died to keep fighting for us before he rose again. People might not agree with Cone, but I do. I believe Jesus goes along with the little guy in every point in time. Jesus is just trying to protect people from wrongful treatment as we are all God’s children. That why Cone says he is black. By agreeing with this point it shows that God is truly a servant. Now I’m not saying that Jesus isn’t worshipped by people. Now you could say that people is worshipping him he could just be doing everything to gain attention and grow his own popularity with people. People also look at they are worshipping instead of God himself, that’s why we believe in the holy trinity; Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. This way the Son is the Father and the Father is the Son. This way people worship Jesus they in fact are worshipping God, because they are one in the same. I like this because it clears one counter argument about Jesus being bias about being a servant and shows that he is pure and only wants the best for the people. As many think he bring them liberation and be a mediator between them and God. As restated again that even Jesus said he sits at the right hand of the father. As a guy that served most of his adult life. Just to make a self-sacrifice by giving himself up. He could have fought back and led an armed rebellion, but he himself even said Am I not to drink the cup that the Father has given me. (John 18:11) Far be it from anyone to say that he did not serve. He died because he knew it was what he was supposed to do. Most people would not do the same thing today. Most people would probably would’ve fought back from the soldiers or would have even ran away and left town. Jesus did it because it was what was expected of him

    Abraham was put to the test because God wanted to see if he still loved him. Sometimes the things of the world can take our attention away from the love that we have for God, but he wants us to stay obedient and follow the path of righteousness so we don’t get distracted. The covenant that was made was between God and Abraham, and this verse repeats the words you (God) and Me. I felt that the spirit of God led me to choose this verse to emphasise that our relationship with God is between just him and me. His plans to prosper me are because he loves me.…

    Christian’s also believe that Jesus was human and divine at the same time. The Letters of Saint Paul, the word “Christ” has been used very closely to Jesus and the early Christians decided that there was no need for Jesus to be claimed as Christ they just accepted it and believed throughout time that Jesus was Christ. The miracles of Jesus also helped with the Christian teachings because it was a starter for his words and spreading the good word throughout the world and allowing the Christian’s to do all that they could to uphold his teachings and the Word of God. Jesus has also shown us…

    Personalizing Jesus’ statement by saying it as, “I am Gabi’s door,” helped me gain an entirely new and deeper understanding of what Jesus wanted me to understand individually. While the personal version of the verse impacts them, it doesn’t change my beliefs because I have always known that the only way to God is through Jesus, but reading this does making me want to behave like it more. Jesus cared about each and every one of us so much and the least we could do is believe in him because that is all he wants. There is no other way to get to Heaven and the door will only open to true followers and believers. Jesus watches over us not just because it is his job, but because he cares about us.…

    Many argue over just how relevant this statement is, and how literal to take the scriptures that speak of Jesus as the Son of God while he was on earth and made of flesh. High Christology views Jesus as God’s son which make him different that any other human for, Jesus took on human form, but did not lose his relationship as son of God, nor did he lose his divinity. He was set apart and chosen. The resurrection shows that God himself views him different than any other human form, “For God so loved the world that he that he gave his only begotten Son.” John 3:16 p 143. The Son of god in human form caused Jesus to be both unequal and subservient to God.…

    Christ’s holiness was not just the absence of actual sin, but a perfect conformity to the will of His Father. Jesus made it known He was about his Father’s will. (Bridges, 2006, p. 47) The Pursuit of holiness is directing us to take on the mindset of Christ because we are no longer slaves to sin. Paul said we died from sin. God delivered us from sin through his union with Christ death.…

    Although it is not necessary to do good work, it is necessary to love others as Jesus would. The best way to love people is to serve them, through any means. God has called His people to act as Jesus would, every person has their own calling specific to them as to what they excel at in life. Nevertheless, God made his people loving and hopeful and kind and it is the job of Christians to follow this path, as many have done in the past, to love and serve. Not for their own benefit, but to serve their God, though kindness and…

    Also worth noting, mankind has been blemished by sin, thus another reason he does not possess an exact likeness, for there is no sin in God (2 Cor. 5:21). However, Jesus Christ came to restore humanity to its position of holiness before God. Though mankind is mentally, emotionally and physically marred by sin and its effects, there is still hope because every person is made in the image of God. Those three words “made in the image of God” are not to be treated lightly.…
