The “Holy Night Nativity Scene” relates directly to the verse “And she gave birth to her firstborn son and wrapped him in swaddling cloths and laid him in a manger, because there was no place for them in the inn” (Luke 2:7). It is symbolic of Jesus’ birth and represents that although his birth was simple, he was surrounded by love. This artwork links to the narrative dimensions of Ninian Smart’s seven dimensions of
Over the years authors and movie producers have found great interest on displaying their desire to explain or narrate various versions of the story of Jesus. The story of Jesus has a great and vast audience ranging from young children to the older generations. Therefore I shall be talking about my observations from the movies
John nine verses one through seven is the being of the grace giving and truth telling of Jesus in this section. When Jesus spoke with the man that was blind I believe he ministered to him and gave him a brief explanation of who he was. The disciples asked him if this man sinned from birth or did his parents sin? Jesus used the truth telling when he answered the disciples by saying this man didn't sin at birth and neither has his parents sinned. It also gives truth-telling by letting the disciples know that it was to give God the glory. Now for the grace-giving part of Jesus, is him giving the Blind man back his sight. The reason why this was grace-giving was because this man had been blind his whole life, but when he came in contact with Jesus, he showed him grace by healing him.
I was first introduced to Jesus Christ through several Korean missionaries from America, who came to my orphanage in Russia one day. A bright green church, which is my favorite color to this day, was implanted right behind my orphanage and the people of the church went around inviting and encouraging people to join them on Sunday mornings. We were told there would be donuts and other food. Of course that would lure any orphan right off the bat. I among other children, joined the church on Sunday mornings. Maybe it was simply the donuts, but I felt accepted right away. Although I was very fond of the things we were told and taught, they appeared to be only stories to me. The stories did not become an entity or reached my heart until after I got adopted into a Christian family three years later.
Did you know that Jesus was hiding inside of that Ram when Abraham slaughtered it on the alter? God Himself had prepared this supplying and it materialized at the specific second it was essential. What took place in this trade is that God obligated Himself to perform what He had promised by way of the obedience of a gentleman. From this level on Jesus in human form is essential to carry forth the deliverance of our species from mortality. PS, He obtained the task carried out. This brings us to the on earth ministry of Jesus in human type.
For centuries, artists depicted Jesus as a white European, anchoring this image in collective imagination and consciousness in western culture. Modern mass media adopted this depiction, and through cinema and TV consolidated it worldwide. Sadly, for descendants of indigenous population of American continents and African-American community, the image of white European Jesus became a symbol of White supremacy and oppression. In this paper, I will explore the evolution of image of Jesus as white European in art and movies, and the issues related to the image of white European Jesus as symbol of white supremacy and oppression for African-American

Yes, I toured in a solo recreation of the teaching of Jesus called Jesus Of Nazareth for well over 1,000 performances from 1994 to 2010. There's a page on this on my website at http://www.billoberst.com/jesus-of-nazareth. I wondered what it would be like to hear the teachings of Jesus as fresh and revolutionary and surprising (rather than predictable, staid and boring), so I created this little touring presentation to find out. I've done it for people of every faith and for people of no particular faith. The astounding thing is how Jesus and His words unify and reconcile. His words liberate. A gruff old man (who, the preacher told me, had not darkened the door of that church in years) told me after one of these presentations, "I don't give
The story of Jesus' life is described and depicted in each of the four Gospels in the Bible. Matthew, Mark, and Luke are also known as the synoptic books, which means see things the same. There are some beliefs that Mark was written as a summary of the book of Matthew, but more scholars actually believe now that Mark was the first of the Gospels to be written. The book of Mark paints a vivid picture of Jesus' life, and all that he carried out on earth. Many examples of Jesus healing, forgiving and teaching are given throughout the book.
Once upon a time, in a far off land lived a man named Jesus. Jesus was the Son of God. His mother was named Mary, and his earthly father was Joseph. Joseph was of the line of King David, whose line of heritage was traced back all the way to Adam and Eve. Jesus lived a life of ridicule, judgement, spirituality, love, joy, faith, and holiness. He had the power to heal the sick and paralyzed, give sight to the blind, speech to the mute, and life to the dead. This may very well sound like a fairy tale, but all of this was as true and real as you and me. Jesus was the living proof of God, and was literally God on earth. Jesus was perfect in every way, and was without sin; yet the Pharisees did not like what Jesus was preaching and accused him of
The Gospels of Jesus tell a story that is a unified story over the four gospels. Each of the four writers had their own point of view that they were writing from. Just a four journalists covering an important story will write from their own point of view
Who is Jesus? The answer to this question is a crucial point that plays a key role in why Jesus was killed. Finding information about Jesus of Nazareth is actually fairly easy, because Christianity, which was founded on the teachings and lessons of Jesus, takes up around a third of the world’s population with its members (Sheler 1). Conversely, the hard part comes when faced with the question; Is this information accurate? The Christians back then, and still, today believe that Jesus was the Christ, the Messiah that God had sent to save them from sin and death. “He walked out of the Judean desert nearly 2,000 years ago, an unknown itinerant preacher, proclaiming to all who would listen that the Kingdom of God was at hand. It was said that
Jesus of Nazareth (4 BC - 30/33 AD), called Jesus Christ, was born to Joseph of Bethlehem and Mother Mary in Judea. Jesus was a Jewish prophet who preached Judaism to the common people of Judea. Near the beginning of his ministry, Jesus appointed 12 apostles and teaches them Judaism and hospitality. Jesus often debated with Jewish authorities, taught Jewish law, performed miracles, and preached Judaism in sessions, such as the Sermon on the Mount. As Jesus' ministry grew, rumors of a Galilean Jew named Jesus who was gaining many religious followers spread. The ministry of Jesus ended when he was seen as a threat to Rome, was betrayed by his apostle Judas, and was put on trial by Pontius Pilate, who later ordered his death. After his death,
