With youth, often comes a varying degree of naivety. This generalization is not lost on the 12-year-old Hughes. Hughes aunt had told him that Jesus would come and save him. The innocence of the pre-teen shines through as Hughes writes,” Still I kept waiting to see Jesus. … I wanted to see him, but nothing happened to me. “(158) Because of Hughes naïve nature, he took his aunt’s figurative language quite literally, and was disappointed when it didn’t happen. This miniscule detail truly reveals Hughes youthful, simple-minded thinking.
Jesus’ Called by Many Names Through time and ages, Jesus has been called by many names. The name Messiah is a translation of the Hebrew term Messiah (jyiv’m) meaning the anointed. This means that Jesus is the anointed one who came to save the world from damnation. The name king refers to Jesus as having dominion over all authority, in the heart. He is the ruler over all Kings, and none can prevent him from accomplishing his purpose. “Which God will bring about in his own time God, the blessed and only Ruler, the King of kings and Lord of lords,”(1Tim.5:15 NIV),
It has the hue (red, green, blue). These colors are bright and I believe it is meant to express a light source or light reflected within the composition. In this bowl, the dark blue color suggest a night or interior scene. The intensity of the color describes the purity or strength of a color. Bright colors are undiluted and are often associated with positive energy and heightened emotions. Dull colors have been diluted by mixing with other colors and create a sedate or serious mood. The painting of the bowl captures both the seriousness and the joy of the time, with the different use of colors. The colors can also be described as warm, based on the spectrum they fall into. The use of multiple colors applied over the lobed bowl allowed for the depiction of increasingly complex scenes on the lobed bowl. Although I could not touch the lobed bowl, through its surface quality, line, and shading, I believe the texture is that of a hard, smooth
Now-a-days it seems like religion has become somewhat of a taboo. It has fallen on the back burners, pushed behind things such as famous actors that people look up to or things portrayed in the media. The thing is, the most important figure in history is part of religion and should be revered much more than the idolized actors of today. The human population has become blind to spiritual life and has become engulfed by a social lifestyle. If you look around, people have forgotten what it’s like to know Jesus and any aspect of religion. Religion is the biggest part of any person’s life because it is the building block for everything we have.
Huston Smith brought up a thought that had never crossed my mind before, “What did Jesus think of himself?” Huston Smith said that it was impossible to find out or ever to know Jesus’ thoughts or personal feelings about himself. Then Smith also brought up the fact that Jesus may not have ever found out what he was, who he was, or what to think about himself. Huston Smith revealed that the importance of Jesus’ human needs should be defined as well as his divine needs. He stated that by considering both human and divine needs one can better understand who Jesus really was and what he was meant to do. Some things in this world could have also been a mystery to Jesus during his life though, just as it is in our lifetime. Huston Smith believed that when Jesus was baptized by John the Baptist and he saw the angel that it could have been the first time he came to the realization of who he was and what his significance to the world was. This idea was supported when Huston Smith went on to explain that the forty days and nights Jesus spent in the woods were spent to discover who he really was. This part of the video really made me think of my opinion of Jesus and whether I thought he knew who he was and who he was going to be.
In this week 's essay we will review how people see Jesus Christ because everyone does not see him like we do. Some only acknowledge him as a good man who want to do good deeds for his heavenly father. Others have said, that he was just another prophet sent
for hundreds of millions of Christians around the world the jesus of history and the Jesus Christ of faith are the same person there is no difference between the two but there is actually appears to be a massive distance between the Christ of faith and history but I understand that most people can see that the real Christ is this modern day depiction of the emperor Constantine
Jesus' enticements take after three examples that are normal to all men. The primary allurement concerns the desire of the flash (Matthew 4:3–4). Our Lorde is ravenous, and the fallen angel entices Him to change over stones into bread, however He answers with Sacred text, citing Deuteronomy 8:3. The second

Second is he GOD himself or does he stand along like us as humans what makes him any different the average person. In conclusion why was he created what does he mean to us is it really important to know him and develop a person relationship if so why?
When we look at the various terms used to describe Jesus in the New Testament, we realize that most of the terms are foreign to the ordinary Akan. These terms stem from the communities where the gospel was proclaimed. For example “Jesus as son of man”, comes from the Palestinian community “Jesus as Messiah or Christ” Acts. 3:20; son of David (apoc.3:7; 5:5); in the Jewish-Hellenistic community which was composed of Greek speaking Jewish converts to Christianity used words likes kyrios. All these words are alien to the Akan. In this sense it is important to consider the language of the people of the Akan’s to see how best to make these words meaningful to them. Is there a way to find words which are synonymous to the attributes used to describe
Among the many significant stories in Mark 1, the scene in which Jesus cleanses a leper seems to contain several important meanings. In particular, this story elucidates upon the figures of Jesus and the leper and also introduces the notion of a Messianic secret. For instance, in the cleansing of the leper scene we observe Jesus showing his humanity. After the leper pleads for Jesus to heal him, Jesus is “moved with pity” (Mk 1:41). The fact that Jesus is moved by a human emotion suggests that he is able to feel empathy for humans and experience human emotions. This is a surprisingly human-like aspect of the nature of Jesus. It is important to note that this suggests that Jesus contained at least some human elements in addition to his divine nature. Therefore, the leper scene not only characterizes Jesus as empathetic, but also insinuates his human nature and ability to feel emotion.
As a matter of ethical truth, casuistry speaks greatly to what the catch phrase, “What would Jesus do?” means. Being like Jesus is critical to a Christian’s witness, as this
Jesus explains the Jewish 'Kiddush ' (blessing of wine and bread) and delivers the later Christian tradition of communion. Jesus gives a sign in the form of an action he takes simultaneously with the traitor, involving the dipping of bread.
Belief Statement I believe that Jesus is a great teacher, leader and ultimately my Savior. A great teacher has many characteristics such as patience, kindness, is understanding, and uses different techniques to help his/her students understand what is being taught and how to apply it to their life. Jesus does this better than anyone I know. A good leader knows how to listen and lead a group in an effective way in addition to knowing when to follow is key to success. Jesus did this in his ministry as well. Lastly and most important, I believe that Jesus is my savior. I believe that God created this universe and everything in it. He created everything exactly how he intended it for us, but we distorted and separated ourselves from God when Adam and Eve sinned. My sin separates me from God, but God wants a personal relationship with me. He sent himself incarnate in humble human form. This form was Jesus, he full God and full man. He was humbled in that form to live the perfect like I cannot to bridge that gap I created. My sin sentenced me to hell, but Jesus’ life, death, and resurrection defeated the eternal death I deserve and Satan himself. I believe in Christ alone, not by my works, gives me new life. I am a new creation trough him, he saved me from my punishment.
What a wonderful new element introduced into our general conference format. Bien hecho, Eduardo. In what would be the most startling moment of His early ministry, Jesus stood up in His home synagogue in Nazareth and read these words prophesied by Isaiah and recorded in the Gospel of Luke: “The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and … set at liberty them that are bruised.”1
