    The Gospels of The New Oxford Annotated Bible aim to tell of the life of Jesus Christ. The authors build the narratives around the Father-Son relationship of God and Jesus because of how much of an impact God’s sacrifice has on Jesus’ ministry. “God so loved the world that he gave his only Son, so that everyone who believes in him may not perish but may have eternal life” (John 3:16). Throughout the book of John, Jesus repeatedly says that he is the Son of God, the Son of Man, and God. If Jesus…

    The Book of John is foundational to the Christian faith. As a foremost document declaring the deity of Jesus, the text decisively establishes that He is God. Contained in the book, there are clear declarations by Jesus where He uses the name of God for Himself. By using the Old Testament name of God, “I AM,” Jesus is speaking in a style that presents Himself as deity. One place where this testimony is undisputable is in the description of the Good Shepherd. In the tenth chapter of the Book…

    John 17:14; “I have given them thy word; and the world hath hated them, because they are not of the world, even as I am not of the world.” This scripture has impressed my mind when the stresses of the world apply their chokeholds and temptations. Never has it filled my mind as often, or sent more solace and strengthened reassurance than since I have been feasting on the teachings and examples of Christ in these four New Testament Gospels. My sister is an atheist. She is in "satan 's power" and…

    Spiritual formation can be an overwhelming process. As the Lord begins to mold us and shape us into His image, the process takes us out of our comfort zone, and pushes us to live by blind faith. It is a process that brings forth a lot of tears, frustration, pruning, and sadness. The process can be extreme, but it births true happiness, joy, servanthood, and the authentic person we were created to be. This paper will discuss reconciliation, transformation process, spiritual formation in the…

    Jesus was an epiphany. As He performed many miracles, He Amazed both His followers and His adversaries. He had no respect for persons while reaching for the poor, weak, and disabled. Forgiving sins, calming storms, and healing diseases; Jesus performed as only God could. Ultimately, Jesus was God, with us and, eventually, in us. He was the fulfillment of the law as the law pointed to a better way. The law could not redeem but Jesus did (Module #3 Lecture Video). The accelerating revelation…

    John 15: In the second of this four-chapter farewell discourse, we find Jesus being the exclusive speaker. Jesus addresses two primary topics: disciple from being connected to the father, and tension with the world. Both sections have to deal with the disciples association with Jesus in particular – Jesus continues to recognize the importance of preparing the disciples for what is to come. 15:1-17 In John 2, we experienced Jesus being a source of life and celebration for the family in Cana…

    rest of the paragraph. John then states that the message readers are about to encounter is one from Jesus Himself, as stated in the part where it says, “we have heard from him and proclaim to you.” The “we” that is stated in this verse includes John and his friends, not the entire audience of the letter. They are claiming, when they say this is message heard from Jesus, to have had an experience with Jesus Himself. This part of the verse is just reiterating the fact that John experienced…

    equal to God except for God Himself), Jesus fashioned Himself as man. In addition to the writings of Paul, the beloved disciple John wrote in his account of Jesus’ life that the Word, which is contextually God, manifested in flesh. As Paul referred to Jesus’ dual-nature in I Timothy 3:16, John also refers to Jesus’ dual-nature in his depiction of the Gospel (specifically John 1). Therefore, the Bible evidently supports the divinity and humanity of Christ alike. In Jesus, two natures are in…

    take up their cross and follow Him or one cannot be His disciple (Matthew 10:38-39). Being a disciple results in obedience, but not begrudging obedience. It is a joyful, loving obedience (John 15:10). This is why transformation is essential. Herein lies the tension, the work of God is to create a new person (John 3:3), our response is to abandon ourselves to Jesus. “The distinguishing mark of Christian discipleship is transformed heart, transformed affections.” (Transformational Discipleship…
