    Messiah

    • 1274 Words
    • 6 Pages

Some people may state scripture and say that it is the building that one is in, such as Matthew 16:13-20. Here it states that Jesus asked his disciples who…

    Jesus as Messiah, the Son of God, and Rabbi. The narrative pauses in five different sections, letting Jesus teach important lessons. An example of one of these blocks is the Sermon on the Mount. The number of teaching blocks within the gospel is significant because there is the same number as the books in the Pentateuch, something that the Jewish audience would perceive.

    • 5 Pages

    has been summed up as a poetic song in which the prophet Isaiah depicted the climatic period of world history in which the coming Messiah will arrive. In today’s culture this view is again reoriented in that many Christians alone see this passage to be a prophecy of the ministry in which Jesus Christ will walk. When looking into the passage, Christians see the ‘servant’ as Jesus, and his suffering for our sins, and the sacrifice he made for us. However like many passages throughout the bible,…

    authority over them, in this instance we see Peter once again setting Himself apart from the other disciples and speaking up in an attempt to sway Jesus. To this Jesus responds back by rebuking Him in return, calling Him Satan and telling Him that His mind is on the things of man. Although, Peter was a disciple of Jesus and had come forth in saying that Jesus was the Christ, in this moment he had let go of the things that were on the mind of God that he had just revealed in his earlier…
