Impact of Jesus
History of Western Civilization
If there was a debate focusing on the question of who is the most important, influential, or impactful person in the history of the world, Jesus Christ and Chuck Norris would be neck and neck for the top spot. Although Chuck may present an interesting case, Jesus has to take the cake for how he influenced entire cultures and their cultural beliefs during his time on earth, and almost 2000 years later in the modern era.

After reading “Jesus’ Two Natures: God and Man” by Matt Slick, I now have a better and more clear understanding of the relationship of Jesus’ human and divine nature. The common misconception, outlined in the text, is that Jesus is half man and half God. This simply is not true; Jesus has two very distinct natures: he is both divine and human. Jesus was the Word of God, and with that said, Jesus’s divine nature and ability did not alter when He became flesh. When Jesus became flesh and gained...

Jesus? - 268 Words
Jesus Christ is the self-proclaimed Messiah, and his mission was to follow God's will, and spread the word about God's will. Jesus was the son of a carpenter, and his mother was not married to his father when he was conceived (although the conception was divine according to the bible) so she would have likely been the butt of jokes and scorned. He was born in a manger according to the bible, but research suggests that he was more likely born somewhere else. Early in life he ran away from his...

Jesus Death - 609 Words
While ultimately it is sinners who sent Jesus to the cross to bear their sins, Jewish leaders sought to kill Jesus from the beginning of his ministry for several reasons. Jewish leaders felt threatened by Christ’s leadership when He challenged the temple, but they also made accusations that He worked on the Sabbath, and they felt that He was attempting to make himself equal to God by claiming that He is the son of God. Pastor David L. Brown writes, “…the Jewish leadership (the...

The question of whether leaders are born or can be taught is one that is common in leadership discussions. My personal opinion is that leaders can be taught, and should be taught by studying the principles and practices by which our history's most effective leaders led. Furthermore; it is important to realize that leadership through hierarchies is quickly becoming inferior to leadership through service and having a joint vision shared by all those affected by this...

Religion for the Romans was very tied up in ideas of obligations, not only to the gods, but to one's family and nation as well. Aeneas preserves his sanity and the lives of his men,...

In other words, Wright tries to "take you there" to see Jesus as he was 2,000 years ago. It is a short and seemingly uncomplicated book, filled with a number of illustrations of Jesus in the Holy Land, yet it does...

The modern world has many misconstrued ideas about Satan and his demons that are not in line with Jesus' teachings in Scripture. Today the world sees Satan in an almost comical way, if they believe in him at all. There is such a lack of belief in anything spiritually supernatural that the idea of demons is less acceptable to today's society than the idea of ghosts. In Jesus' time, this was not the case; people were well aware of Satan and his activities. Jesus often had to deal...

The Four Perspectives of Jesus in the Gospels
The four Gospels are the accounts at the beginning of the New Testament about the saving work of God in his son Jesus Christ. The writers of the four gospels introduced a new literary category into literature. The gospels are not exactly biographies, because apart from certain events surrounding Jesus’ birth, (Matt. 1-2; Luke 1-2) and one from Jesus’ youth (Luke 2:41-52), they record only the last two or three years of Jesus' life. Moreover, the material included is not written as an objective...

On one opposing view of religion is more of narrower aspects, where they tend exclude many belief systems. An example of a narrow...
