You can't really say that Jesus Christ was a Christian since "Christian" means follower of Christ (literally it means Christ-like). He was more the Father of Christianity. The… faith itself is based completely on his life, teachings, death, and resurrection. Another Answer: Jesus was never a Christian, but remained a Jew throughout his life. The book Rabbi Jesus , by the Anglican priest (and founder of the Institute of Advanced Theology) Bruce Chilton, deals with this fact, and explains that Jesus remained loyal to his religion and was a respected teacher of Judaism in his era. Some scholars, such as John Dominic Crossan, in his The Birth of Christianity , have argued that Jesus's disciples became Christians as a result of their transformative experience of the Resurrection, but even Crossan doesn't allege that Jesus was a Christian. The Gospel-writers referred to Jesus as specifically a "rabbi" in Matthew 26:25&49; Mark 9:5, 11:21, 14:45; and John 1:38&49, 3:2, 4:31, 6:25, 9:2, 11:8, and 20:16. So, the Gospel-writers recognized that Jesus was not only a Jew but a "rabbi." Matthew 28:18-20 is the only non-Judaic thing that Jesus was alleged to have taught. If you copy what's in parentheses here ("The Authenticity of Matthew 28:19" "Online Truth") and paste it into a search box, you will see one of many arguments that the passage was added, not authentic. However, stronger evidence of this is that the earliest-written of the canonical Gospel accounts of Jesus, which was Mark, had no such passage: it ended in Mark 16:8. The earliest two manuscripts of Mark, both of which date from the 4th Century, both lack that passage, but someone later added, to Mark, 16:9-20. Consequently, all of the earliest-written evidence is consistent that Jesus never left the Jewish faith, and that he would be shocked and appalled that, in violation of the first three of the Ten Commandments, Christians are baptized in the name of this man whose disciples called him "Rabbi."
Galatians 2:16 is a verse where both terms are used in the NIV. The NASB has Christ Jesus both times. Either way you write it, it means the same thing. Christ means anointed… one or Messiah. Since only a king is anointed I feel its suffice to say that either way your write it you can replace Christ with King. Then Jesus Christ means - Jesus the King And Christ Jesus means - King Jesus Also a side note - Jesus doesn't receive the title "Christ" until He is resurrected. He did claim that he was the Christ in John 4:24-25. He also did call himself Jesus Christ in John 17:3. But others didn't start calling him Jesus Christ until his resurrection. Peter does this at Pentecost in Acts 2:38. Before this he held the title Jesus of Nazareth Acts 2:22. It's also interesting to note that the first time the term Jesus Christ is used by someone other than Christ we are told to repent and be baptized. Hence the start the the Church. And it is by the title "Christ" it shows us that He is reigning in Heaven today. Another answer When "Jesus Christ" is written in the Bible, the writer is emphasizing the humanity of Jesus; when it says "Christ Jesus", it is emphasizing the deity of Christ.
They can obtain resurrection . They can obtain eternal life and happiness . They can do this only through belief and obedience to the doctrine of Christ . That the atonem…ent of Christ provides a remission of sins. . That baptism in the name of Christ through one that has the authority to do so applies the atonement. . Failure to do this bring eternal damnation in hell fire. Read the Bible, beginning with the gospel of John, then the gospels of Matthew, Mark, and Luke.
Most believe that He is the son of God, sent to earth to atone for the sins of mankind. There was no other pure enough to be able to do this for all had fallen short of this g…reat honor. He was the spiritual first born of the Father and so it fell upon Him to take upon himself this great task. It will be he who will judge mankind at the last days, It is he who rose from the dead to break the bonds of death brought about by the transgression of our first parents. Through his death and resurrection, all mankind will also be resurrected. Another answer Since The Bible is so old and was written in many different languages, everyone picks and chooses what the think is true. That's why there are so many varieties of Christians (Episcopalian, Presbyterian, Baptist, Pentecostal, etc.). Another answer The Bible says the penalty due mankind for rebelling against God is death, after life. In the book called Hebrews in the New Testament of the Bible it says: Hebrews 9:27 And as it is appointed for men to die once, but after this the judgment, The bible also say a person can be saved from death after life and have life after death this is called salvation. In the Bible the way of salvation is through the death of Jesus Christ, which God has accepted as a suitable payment for mankind's rebellion. The first book of John, in the Bible, says: 1Jn 5:11 And this is the testimony: that God has given us eternal life, and this life is in His Son. 1Jn 5:12 He who has the Son has life; he who does not have the Son of God does not have life. By accepting God's gift of His son (Jesus) you will receive life after death.
The Muslims believe in all the holy Prophets (May peace be uponthem all). They do believe in Hazrat Jesus Christ (AS) a Prophet.He is also called by the Name of Messiah in the… holy Qur'an. He wasmiraculously born to Virgin Mary (AS). He performed many miracles.The Jews turned against him and tried to get him crucified at thehand of the Roman Governor, but Almighty God raised him alive toheavens. He will descend from heavens before Qiyamat. He willmarry, have children, die a natural death, and will be buried nearthe grave of the holy Prophet Hazrat Muhammad (SAW). He will riseup on the Day of Judgment with him. Anybody who claims that he isJesus Christ and has descended from heaven is not a Muslim. He is afalse prophet sent by Satan as there have been many false claimantsof prophet-hood before this time. But the Muslims don't believe himthe SON of Almighty God. The Muslims consider it the Greatest,Severest and Unpardonable sin to associate parents, off-spring, orAssociate with Almighty God. He is the Sole Creator, Sustainer,Provider and Ruler of all the creation.
Jesus isn't great, he's awesome
What do Christians mean when they say their beliefs are not just a doctrine but a living relationship with Jesus Christ?
personal relationship with Christ in walking,talking,praying and living for him.
It means Jesus came to this Earth to die. God the Father wanted God the Son to die on the cross and to take Christian's sin with him.
It depends on how you say it. If you say it irreverently as a curse or an epithet, then yes, it's a sin. If, however, you say it reverently, in adoration, or even in an explan…ation to someone else, then no, it's not a sin. It depends on how you use it.
Before Jesus, Christianity was Judaism waiting for a Messiah.
God 'founded' Christianity, and Jesus is God. So yes.
By preaching and healing, and by dying and by rising again, and finally, and this is the main way he 'brought Christianity', by sending the Holy Ghost to his believers. I t…hink Jesus didn't bring Christianity. Christianity came after Jesus died. Because Christianity is based on the death burial and resurrection of Jesus. Salvation through faith in Jesus Christ wasn't preached until after His death.

I can only answer for myself. I believe that the bible is the insprired word of the one true God. God promised us a savior and a savior He delivered in the form of Jesus. We c…an do nothing without Jesus. He tells us in the Gospels, that no man will come to the Father without the Son. We have no choice. Jesus died for us and He is our buffer between us and God's judgement. I don't know about you, but I want Jesus standing there when God is passing judgement on my life.

The inscription of INRI on the sign above the crucifix is a Latin acronym. The acronym INRI (IÄsus NazarÄnus, RÄx IÅ«daeÅrum) represents the \nLatin inscriptio…n which in English reads as "Jesus the Nazarene, King of\nthe Jews". John 19:20 \nstates that this was written in three languages: Hebrew, Latin and \nGreek during the crucifixion of Jesus.
