          Jesus was raised in Nazareth in the home of Joseph, a carpenter, and his wife Mary. Jesus most likely went to school in a room attached to the synagogue. He
was a faithful Jew and followed all the Jewish customs. Jesus was a human being.
God took on a human form in Jesus in order to live life like we do. God ‘s love for us is unconditional and infinite. To communicate with us in a personnel way like we do with our friends and family, there was no better way for God to be with us than for God
to become one of us. Jesus walked along the same roadways and experienced the same trials and tribulations as other people. Accepting Jesus as fully human is as important as accepting him as fully divine. Jesus experienced stress, anger, frustration and loneliness but he chose never to respond sinfully to these experiences. Given the choice between popularity and telling people the truth, he chose the path that ultimately turned people against him and led to his death.
     Jesus is a role model for me. Like Jesus I have been baptized in the faith.
I was baptized as an infant whereas Jesus was baptized by his cousin John the
Baptist when he was about thirty years old. During his life Jesus was tempted in the desert by the devil three times to give up his complete dependence on God and accept the easy forms of power the devil offered. Jesus resisted for he knew that only his faith in
God would give him the power. As I grow up many times I am tempted to do the wrong
things. Doing the wrong thing is sometimes easier than doing what is right.
Understanding that Jesus also faced these obstacles and that prayer can help
you resist in these tough situations in life is reassuring to me.
     Jesus taught his disciples and us how to pray. He taught people to pray
simply and trustingly to God as father, without trying to impress God with fancy language. Through Jesus I learned to talk to God like a son does to his father;
to say what is in your heart, to ask for guidance when you need to make tough
Jesus has taught me to be thankful for all the blessing I have in life.
Blessing are not necessarily being rich in material goods. But being rich in the
things that matter most like the love and respect of family and friends.

Have you met him - Jesus Christ? Essay - Jesus the Christ is God the Father (that One and only Holy Spirit - God is a Spirit and One) in flesh - the Son of God. It was God the Father who was responsible for overshadowing the virgin Mary and causing her to conceive. So Mary was the source of His humanity and God was the source of His divinity. He became a man but he did not cease to be God the Father of the universe. He could probably best be explained as the God-Man. Sometimes He spoke and acted as a man. Sometimes He spoke and acted as God (the Father)....   [tags: essays research papers]570 words

Essay on Parables and Miracle Stories of Jesus - Some of Jesus' parables have a very specific message, pinpointing a particular aspect of the Gospel of the Kingdom. Others have a broader view, enlightening us, to some process ongoing in the operation of the kingdom in our world. The parables I have chosen are of the second type: providing light on a process ongoing in the world with the kingdom operating with us today. E. P. Sanders (Jesus and Judaism 1985, London, SCM Press) speaks of the kingdom in terms of ‘time present’ and ‘time future’. He tells us that Jesus used a deliberately ambiguous expression to make his listeners think....   [tags: Jesus, Kindgom of God, Bible, Religion]

Life and Teachings of Jesus Essay - Introduction I believe that Jesus Christ died on the cross for my sins, so that I would be able to live with Him for eternity. Jesus, for me, is the most important and I couldn't go through life without Him by my side. Jesus is the answer to all the problems and issues of this world. A lot of the time Jesus is either disrespected or taken for granted. Most people don't realize how our past, present, and future are affected by Him. Jesus is monumental in history through His life, teachings, and character....   [tags: Jesus Christ, Bethlehem, Savior, Bible, Religion]

The Spiritual Death of Jesus Essay - Dear friends, I cannot stress enough how critical it is that we remain diligent in our personal studies of the Word of God. It does not matter who is in the pulpit teaching. It is our own responsibility to make sure that what we are being fed, our spiritual food, which I fondly call "Soul Food"; is supported by the Holy Spirit inspired texts. "So then, my beloved, just as you have always obeyed, not as in my presence only, but now much more in my absence, work out your salvation with fear and trembling; for it is God who is at work in you, both to will and to work for His good pleasure." Philippians 2:12&13 NAS Number 5....   [tags: Word of God, Religion, Bible, Jesus Christ]

Essay on Jesus: Religous Myth - ... Jesus could do unworldly things like walk through walls, so the rock being rolled away was just a symbol to show that he had risen. The Resurrection is more than just an important religious myth, but it is the basis of the Christian religion. Without the resurrection, salvation would not be possible in the Christian religion. The resurrection is not just a Christian based myth. The resurrection of Jesus Christ is Christian based, but the thought of resurrection is believed in Judaism and in the Islamic faith....   [tags: resurrection, Jesus Christ, religion, bible]

Essay on A Comparison of Jesus and Muhammad - Comparison of Jesus and Muhammad            Jesus and Muhammad have been held in high respect, if not respected, by the billions who have belonged to the religions that these two greats founded. Although both men thought of them of selves as spokes people of the same God not very much attention has been given to their similarities and differences.           It is hard to find people through the ages that appreciate what Muhammad did. It seems that a lot of people degrade the rival leader to promote their won religious leader....   [tags: Compare Contrast Jesus Muhammad]616 words

The Jesus I Never Knew by Phillip Yancey Essay - The Jesus I Never Knew by Phillip Yancey Yancey starts out with the image of Jesus. When he was young he had envisioned Jesus to have angelic features such as, young, handsome, and a compassionate face. It wasn’t until he entered into a Christian college, that he was introduced to the real image of Jesus. I had an immediate connection with Yancey. I too had an image of Christ in my head, which consisted of Hollywood portrayals and those in classical paintings. It wasn’t till I engaged myself at a Christian college, that I have now received a new and more accurate picture of Christ....   [tags: The Jesus I Never Knew Phillip Yancey Essays]877 words

Essay on jesus - Christianity: A rise in the Classical Period Even though Christianity developed later than many other religions, and caught on slowly, its ideas were very popular. Some people were disagreeing with Judaism, and therefore reformed their ideas to fit with those of Christianity. Paul of Tarsus (5 c. e. - 67 c. e) was considered the most important religious leader in the developing and spreading of Christian beliefs. For Paul to prove that Christianity is for all people, he wrote letters and epistles....   [tags: essays research papers]700 words

teaches that in the Kingdom of God the usual values and priorities of the world are turned upside down. The poor are truly rich, the most powerful are the weakest and a person who wants to lead must first become a servant. Jesus could not stand hypocrisy and injustice and he let people know. The Pharises and the Sadducces debated with him
on the fine points of Jewish law and healing a person on the Sabbath a day of rest.
Jesus loved the law, but he could not bear to see it abused as a way to control people and put them down. By following Jesus example, I try to reflect on our laws and how they
effect all people.
     Jesus taught that people should love not only their friends but their enemies as well. He lived this by example. He forgave those who persecuted him and betrayed him.
Even as he hung on the cross dying, he forgave those who put him to death. Many times
in my life I have gotten mad at people who I thought have betrayed me. It is easy to stay
angry or hold a grudge but then I think of Jesus and realize these things are petty.
If Jesus could forgive the people who crucified him my actions seem inconsequential.
Jesus has taught me to accept people who are different then me. Through him I
have learned not to judge people. I try to have an open mind with those that are
different from me. Jesus stood up for people who were powerless I try to help
those who are less fortunate then I am. Through my grandparents church I
donate clothes that I have outgrown, books that I have already read and sport
equipment which I have replaced to children who families are from foreign countries and can not afford to buy these things for their children.
     Jesus lived many years ago, but the lessons we learn from him still apply today
in our lives. He taught me how to communicate with God, our father and how to live life with humility-a total openness to the call of God. By following Jesus teachings I can
show that we are all God’s children and we are all loved by God. Jesus is to me
a way to understand God which I can relate to. Jesus is God in a human form. He
has some of the same traits as God but also some of the same weaknesses I have.
He shows me that I can be close to God even though I am not perfect.
