He continues on to describe Jesus’ entire Jewish genealogy, which clearly portrays Jesus as Christ of the Jews. Additionally, in Matthew 27, Jesus stands before Pilate awaiting his trial. In Matthew 27:11, Pilate asks Jesus if He is the King of the Jews. Jesus replied, “You have said so.” Jesus publically announces that He is the promised Messiah of the Jews and reveals that He has…

    Jesus was a man. Jesus was born into a poor, working family in Nazareth. Jesus was born in a time that was characterized by the political unrest that culminated as a result of the Roman occupation in Judea. But really, who was Jesus? How is he the same or different than the divine figure and gentle shepherd that followers of Christianity worship today? Can the Christian faith be entirely based upon him, the historical Jesus, the real man? The man Jesus is often considered to have been a…

    In the Gospel of John, the author uses several miracles of Jesus to show that the miraculous acts are specific in nature and directed toward achieving the goals stated in John 20:31. The intention is to understand Jesus is the Messiah and to provide a means of eternal life.1 However, among scholars sometimes there is debate as to exactly how many of these miracles are signs. Most tend to agree that there are at least seven, but a dispute sometimes arises if the Resurrection of Jesus should be…

    mind when confronted with who Jesus is, with a key one being Immanuel, or God with us. The exhaustive list should speak for itself in that Jesus encompasses every plausible Godly characteristic fathomable to man. While the human race assigns numerous titles to describe Jesus, personal introspection of who Jesus is might differ from that of a worldly viewpoint. Thus, deliberating on Jesus in a biblical sense via the Gospels from a collectivistic and individualistic stance, as well as through a…

    Jesus came announcing that the kingdom of God was at hand (Matthew 3:2) and then preceded to demonstrate what God’s true kingdom on earth would look like. However, as Robert Stein points out, “Jesus never defined exactly what he meant by the kingdom of God/heaven” in his teachings (Stein 61). Instead, Jesus told John’s disciples “the blind see, the lame walk, the lepers are cured, the deaf hear, the dead are raised to life, and the Good News is being preached to the poor” (Luke 7:22). In doing…

    1. In what ways is Jesus unique from other leading figures of history? In what ways is Jesus similar? Logically, asking how Jesus is unique from other spiritual leaders is like asking how our sun is different from other stars in our system of planets. The argument being that there are no other stars in our solar system. Historically, no other religious leader can compare to the uniqueness of Jesus Christ, since He is the only one who was dead and is now alive. He declares in Revelation 1:17-18…

    The first book of the New Testament is the Gospel of Matthew. While the Book of Matthew is read by all people around the world, Matthew himself intended this book to be read by a certain demographic, the Jews. Even after Jesus’ death, many Jews weren’t convinced that Jesus was the Messiah, so Matthew wrote his testimonies down to prove to them that Jesus was in fact the Messiah. This can be seen in both the content and wording of the information and events recorded in his accounts. One of the…
