    Beatitude Research Paper

    • 1171 Words
    • 5 Pages

    When we show mercy, the conviction of the Holy Spirit reminds us to show forgiveness, compassion, and love towards the one who has “fallen.” We are not without sin. In the workplace, when a mistake is made it may not be due to an individual purposely making these mistakes. It could possibly be a training issue, misunderstanding, or lack of tools available. Taking the time to show employees what is required of them empowers them, building their confidence and efficiency at the same time. Exemplifying mercy will show others how to be merciful when the times come, also serving as a positive role-model and Child of God. Sixth Beatitude, “Blessed are the pure in heart, for they will see God.” (Matthew 5:8) As with all things, we should do them with the best of intentions. In the workplace if a promotion was given to someone who does not have much of the education behind him or her, but their work ethic speaks for them, we are to congratulate them and know our time will be next. Through God all Blessings will…

    The “Sermon on the Mount” is recorded in Matthew 5-7. It is a collection of a number of Jesus’ teachings. In class, we talked about how Jesus was giving the disciples a new law. The Sermon on the Mount is the first times we hear of Jesus’ giving a sermon, according to the gospel of Matthew. The Sermon is so rich in things we need to do, think, and say, but I’m going to focus on the attributes that Christians need to display in order to have blessedness, how to pray and what to pray for, and a…

    Throughout the Gospels of Matthew and John, each of them expressed rhetorical devices and rhetorical appeals in their stories but illustrated them in varying ways. According to the article by Matera, he expressed “symbolism that was applied to the evangelists by relating Matthews Gospel to the face of a human and Johns Gospel to the face of an eagle. This symbolism, which was specially developed by Irenaeus, enabled the church to see each of the Gospels as distinctive and yet gazing upon the…

    The Gospels Analysis “God writes the Gospel not in the Bible alone, but also on trees, and in the flowers and clouds and stars.”(Martin Luther).

The word Gospel means the teaching or revelation of Christ, or a thing that is absolutely true, and a set of principles or beliefs. The origin of the word comes from the Old English word gōd meaning good and the Old English word spel meaning new, or a story.…

    Essay On The Beatitudes

    • 1741 Words
    • 7 Pages

    lesson of the Beatitudes is written in two of the Synoptic Gospels, both Matthew 5:1-12 and Luke 6:20-26, in the New Testament. This teaching discusses people who are blessed and what they will receive, and this story is noted as an important teaching from the Gospels in the New Testament. The Beatitudes in both the Gospels of Matthew and Luke have overarching similarities, but there are also differences that make each story unique and help to convey a specific intention the author wants his…

    The Synoptic Gospels are written by Matthew, Mark, Luke and John to share with others the life, ministry and death of Jesus Christ. In the Gospels, there are different portrayals of the Jews that have hindered the way people read the Gospels today. A majority of the Gospel is interpreted with an anti-Semitic point of view. Anti-Semitism can be defined as the prejudice against, hatred of, or discrimination against Jews as an ethnic, religious, or racial group. Matthew, Mark, Luke and John all…

    Portrait Of Jesus Essay

    • 1345 Words
    • 6 Pages

    New Testament Gospels: Mark, Matthew, Luke, and John. Each Gospel emphasizes on particular principles that represent Jesus differently. Jesus is seen as the suffering Messiah in all four Gospels, but each Evangelist puts in his own intake, hence expanding on the original Markan portrait of Jesus. The writers of the Gospels give their own theological assertions, and understandings, which in effect creates a new portrait of Jesus for each Gospel. The Gospel portraits vary and represent a…

    I chose to write about Matthew and John because they are the first and last of the Gospels. I am also the most interested in these two books since one is a synoptic Gospel and the other is not. Matthew and John are both Gospels. However, Matthew is a synoptic gospel and John is not. John is different than all the other Gospels and is not considered a synoptic Gospel because it does not contain the birth of Jesus. This is one of the main differences between Matthew and John. Despite that…

    Gospel of Matthew and John the Baptist The Book of Matthew is the first gospel of the New Testament; although the author is unknown many believe it was written by one of Jesus’ twelve apostles, Matthew. Matthew means “gift of the Lord” and the gospel Matthew means “good news for the Jews”. The book of Matthew was written to prove to the Jews that Jesus is the Messiah.
