Yes, since JESUS is the Son of GOD and GOD is everywhere.. Also, His adoptive father, Joseph was present.. Luke 2:. 6And so it was, that, while they were there, the days were accomplished that she should be delivered.. 7And she brought forth her firstborn son, and wrapped him in swaddling clothe…s, and laid him in a manger; because there was no room for them in the inn..

The gospels are in agreement that there were two others being crucified, and that there were soldiers and a mob present. Beyond that, the depends on which gospel you prefer to use. The Gospel According to St Mark is clear in that none of the disciples was at the crucifixion. Women looked from a…far off : among them, Mary. Since this was the ealiest of the gospels, and the other New Testament Gospels used it as their major sources for information on the life of Jesus, Mark ought to be the most accurate gospel. The Gospel According to St Matthew says only that women looked from afar off : among them, Mary and Mary Magdalene. The Gospel According to St Luke says that those of his acquaintance stood afar off with the women. The Gospel According to St John says that the mother of Jesus, her sister (also called Mary) and Mary Magdalene stood by the cross with the disciple whom he loved . Nowhere is the disciple whom Jesus loved identified, but Christian tradition holds him to be John. (MORE)
Presently, Jesus is alive and sitting at the Father's right hand. In the 1st Century, circa 31 AD, He died and resurrected just outside of Jerusalem.
The present day location where Jesus died is North of Mount Zioncalled Calvary or Golgotha. The Church of the Holy Sepulcher is atthe site.
Jesus was crucified in Golgotha which is an Aramaic word that means "the skull." Calvary is the Latin form of the word. The Bible does not reveal the exact location of Golgotha. It simply states that Jesus' crucifixion took place outside the city of Jerusalem, though near it (John 19:20; Hebre…ws 13:12). (MORE)
They were very sad. Some say that they were so distraught, they started the rumor that he resurrected... Believers say that Christ's sacrifice will help atone for all of humanity's sins.
This depends greatly on the belief structure which you are making reference to. For example, Protestant and Catholic denominations will have differing opinions to the details. Some groups feel it is a metaphor, others that it is literal, and still others that it simply makes reference to God bein…g part of all things. In the true literal sense of transubstantiation, however, the answer is simply no. Though church based groups have claimed to have tested and shown the presence of blood/tissue following the ritual, it has never been demonstrated under scientific conditions. For a more detailed and in depth explanation of the differing viewpoints in differing traditions, please see the full Wikipedia page on Transubstantiation; (MORE)
There is no record in the Gospel accounts that Mary was present when Jesus was baptised in the River Jordan.
When Joseph and Mary brought the baby Jesus form the dedication at the temple ,beside his parents Simon the priest and Anna the old prophetess was there .
John the Baptist and many onlookers were present at Jesus' baptism,not forgetting The Holy Spirit; Mary, His mother; and His brother,James.
Osho said beautiful things about Jesus. One thing that comes to mind is that the great teachers emphasize either meditation or love as the path towards awakening. Buddha emphasized meditation; Jesus love. He also loved to quote Jesus, as I recall, saying we should, "live in the world but n…ot be of the world." That is to say, in my words, we should engage in the world, live life to the fullest, but not be identified with it (see it as a play, a "leela" in Sanskrit). There are a few books with Osho discourses where he talks on Jesus. One is called The Mustard Seed. And remember to try an Osho meditation or two: this is the best way to get to know Osho and his teachings. (MORE)
I can't imagine that he didn't stay close by the whole time Jesus was at the Temple, so it's reasonable to assume that he was there for the circumcision and naming.
The Bible doesn't say but it is quite possible. He was laid in a manger, which was a feeding receptacle for animals.
The is no biblical record as to who was present at the birth of Christ. One can only sumise that Joseph may have called upon the inn keepers wife for assistance. Then he might have helped Mary deliver the babe.
Jesus is present when the consecrated oil is marked with a cross on the forehead of the person being initated.
Yes, this is what Catholics believe. At the Last Supper, Jesus said, "Take this bread. It is my body." Then he said, "Take this and drink. This is my blood. Do this in memory of me." Catholics believe this was the First Eucharist, that through a miracle the bread and wine actually became the body …and blood of Jesus Christ. Catholics reenact the Last Supper during every Mass, where God, acting through the priest, changes the bread and wine into the body and blood of Jesus Christ. This is a great sacrament of thanksgiving and unity of Catholics. By the way, the Eastern Catholic, Oriental Orthodox and Eastern Orthodox Churches, the Assyrian Church of the East, the Lutheran and many Anglican Churches also believe in the Real Presence of Jesus Christ in the Eucharist. This is more than half of all Christians in the world. For more information, see the Catechism of the Catholic Church, sections 1322 and following: http://www.usccb.org/catechism/text/pt2sect2chpt1art3.shtml With love in Christ. (MORE)
Answer According to the Bible, Mary would have been the only one present at both.

Jesus was presented in the temple to the priest Simon, as he was dedicated there.
Jesus brought as closer to the Father and open the way to the HolySpirit to be given to His followers, thus conquering over Satan,evil and death . Every individual in this world can believe andfollow him and change his life and gain salvation, which is givenfreely. This gave hope, life and joy to pe…ople through thecenturies. Missionaries preached all over the world and Christiansare active helping people with love and comfort. On the contrary, religions through the centuries, ruled by wrongpeople and not Christ and Holy Spirit, took advantage of theirauthority and gave oppression to people, changed the teaching ofthe Bible to their benefit.

Our Blessed Lord, Jesus Christ, is the Word of God. Thus all readings from the Bible are the Word of God, and present Him.
The author of Mark's Gospel, the first gospel to be written, seems not evn to have known that Joseph was the earthly father of Jesus. Some have speculated that a tradition quickly grew that Jesus' father was called Joseph because Joseph of Arimathea, who was of course unrelated, took the responsibil…ity of a father to bury Jesus after the crucifixion. However none of the gospels mentions Joseph except as the father of Jesus. Some have speculated that this silence means that Joseph died soon after the birth of Jesus, or at least soon after the birth of his other children, the brothers and sisters of Jesus. A few scholars, noting the absence of any mention of Joseph in Mark , are uncertain whether he really existed. The other gospel writers relied directly or indirectly on Mark for everything they knew about the life of Jesus, and would appear to have had no other source on which they could base this information, apart from newly created tradition.

At Jesus death on the cross, Mary his mother and the disciples , as well as the Roman soldiers and the Jews and priests. Also the two robbers were there.
Jesus seems to have had no perceptible long-term effect on Jerusalem, at least in the first century CE. He is reported to have driven the moneychangers out of the Temple, yet they continued to operate with the sanction of their priests until the Temple was finally destroyed. He is reported to have c…onverted many, as also did his disciples, yet the history of the Roman-Jewish War and the Civil War of 70 CE does not even mention Christians. Presumably, even at this stage there were too few Christians in Jerusalem to merit comment. (MORE)
Mark presented Jesus as: . Racist. In chapter 7, he called Gentiles 'dogs' and only agreed to help a Gentile woman when she humbly accepted that description.. Less than divine. He had some extraordinary powers and God called him his son, but Mark did not believe him to be one with God. For exampl…e:. 6:5: And he (Jesus) could there do no mighty work . 10:18 Why call me good. There is none good but God .. Irrational and quick to anger, as we see in the cursing of the fig tree for not bearing fruit out of season, and the story of his overturning the tables of the moneychangers.. Jesus told his followers to love their neighbours, an injunction taken from the Old Testament. In modern times, 'neighbours' is seen as having a broad scope because of Luke, but in Mark, as in the Hebrew Bible, it still had a narrow meaning. ANSWER: Mark presents Jesus as a Savior-King, who conquers demon, disease, and death. (MORE)
Since Luke's Gospel says that Jesus was born during the reign of King Herod, who died in April 4 BCE, he would have been presented no later than this, and probably some years earlier. Since Luke's Gospel says that Jesus was born during the census of Quirinius, which took place around 6 to 8 CE, he …would have been presented no earlier than this. Thus around 6 to 8 CE. (MORE)

As God and Creator. John 1:1 "In the beginning, the Word was with God, and the Word was God." John 1:3 "All things came into being through Him, and apart from Him nothing came into being that has come into being. "
Jesus said to eat the bread: it represented his flesh, being broken. Jesus also said :drink the wine. it represents my blood, being spilled
A: The Gospel of Luke presents the genealogy of Jesus back through Joseph, then Zorobabel and King David and all the way to the first biblical man, Adam. Because of an interest in numerology, Luke adds two fictitious ancestors to the account: Admin and Kainan. He also gives the paternal grandfather… of Zorobabel as Neri, rather than Jehoahaz, in order to have the ancestry of Jesus remain in a line of commoners al the way back to David. (MORE)

Jesus is also known as Christ! Christ is always with us. The presence of Christ in the Eucharist begins at the moment of consecration. We Know that Christ is present in mass because we believe when receiving communion, we are receiving Jesus in body and blood. Christ is present when the assemb…ly is gathered in his name. This is just as he had promised: "For where two or three gather in my name, there am I with them." Every time we come together to pray and sing in any of the Church's liturgies, Christ is present and with us. Christ is present as the priest in mass when they repeat what happened at the last supper. The priest says , 'Take, eat; this is my body.' and 'Drink of it, all of you; for this is my blood of the covenant, which is poured out for many for the forgiveness of sins.' Jesus also said at the last supper when it was the last night Jesus had with his disciples. Jesus said that the host was his body and the wine was his blood. The Blessed Sacrament, the host after being blessed, is put in a tabernacle. We know that the host which has been blessed by the Holy Spirit and has Jesus in it is always there because onto on the box there is a light which is always lit. Jesus is also said to be present in the word of god. Whether that reading is from the Old or New Testament, Christ is present in that Word. In fact, at the beginning of John's Gospel, we hear that Christ IS the Word of God. He is God speaking to us. And so each time we hear God's Word Christ is there with us. After the mass when we are about to leave the priest says" Go forth, the mass is ended" When he says mass we leave with Jesus inside us. We are told to spread the word. Christ is present for us in His passion, death, and resurrection. Through offertory we give the bread and wine, the body and blood, to the priest who then blesses them and lays the Holy Spirit upon them. While this is happening we are supposed to thank god and find support through Christ who is present in mass. As St Teresa as Avila said "Christ has no body on earth but yours" we have to do as Christ does. So if we go to mass it is like Christ going to mass as we are now Christ on earth.

Question: Where did Jesus parent present him (i.e. Jesus) to the Lord? Jerusalem in a Synagogue according to the gospel according to Luke: .

A: The Gospel of John is the one gospel that presents Jesus as fully divine and pre-existing.
He does give presents. He gives anyone who wants it eternal life in Heaven. Because, "God so loved the world, that he gave his only son, that whoever believed in Him should not die but live forever"John 3:16
The special emphasis of Luke is the humanity of Jesus. While each of the Gospels were intended for all mankind, Matthew seems to have had in immediate view the Jews; Mark, the Romans; and Luke, the Greeks. Greek civilization represented culture, philosophy, wisdom, reason, beauty, and education. The…refore, to appeal to the thoughtful, cultured, philosophic Greek mind, Luke, in a complete, orderly, and classical story, depicts the beauty and perfection of Jesus, the ideal, universal man. Another Answer : Luke is the only Gospel writer who did not know Jesus like the other 3 disciples. He writes the only Gospel with a sequel - Book of Acts. He was an educated man - a physician (Colossians 4:14). For Luke, Jesus is the promised Messiah (1:31-35), the Son of God (9:35), the Servant through whom God works (4:16-18), and the Lord who sits at God's right hand exerting His authority and giving His Spirit to anyone who repents and believes (compare 22:69 with Acts 2:30-36). Luke emphasizes the Old Testament and its promises of a Messiah in the Book's first two chapters while the third chapter demonstrates that Jesus is the Messiah who can resist the Evil One. Luke goes on introducing Jesus' power and teachings. By the time we come to chapter 24, His disciples should realize Jesus is the fulfillment of the Law, the Prophets, and the Psalms. (v 43-49). It is clear Luke's Gospel centers on God's plan to provide salvation to the world. It closes with the anticipation of the spead of the gospel which is recorded in Acts. (MORE)

The presence of …the chief priests is recorded by Matthew, Mark, and John, Luke making no reference to them. . Matthew, Mark, and Luke refer to the scribes, elders, or rulers, comprising the Sanhedrin, while John ignores their presence. . Luke, who wanted to show the universality of the work and relation of Jesus, declares the presence of great multitudes of the people. (MORE)
Yes Jesus is present in Islam. No Muslim is a Muslim if he does not believe in Jesus. Jesus for the Muslims was a Prophet, like other Prophets, performed a lot of miracles and will return to this World again before Doomsday
At the end of the day, after being with me through thick and thin, I get peace of mind.
On the day Jesus was born, he received gold, frankensense and (mur, mere, muur?) DON'T KNOW HOW TO SPELL IT. Pronounced m-ur.
If you mean the responsibility to tell people about God, then we are the ones.\nBut if you mean working in people's lives, then Jesus is still the one.
A: In the Book of Hebrews, Jesus is presented as the high priest in heaven, greater than the high priests on earth. He is better than the angels, who are commanded to worship him. Jesus is the second Moses, but superior to him. Finally, Jesus is the son of God. He is not equal to God, but God has …made Jesus his heir. It is not entirely clear in this book whether Jesus has lived on earth as a physical man, but either view could be argued. Certainly there are apparent references to his crucifixion, but the ancients could believe in a crucifixion in heaven. (MORE)
To call sinners to repentance: . I have not come to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance." [Luke 5:32] To call the Jews away from idol worshiping: . Jesus said to him, "Away from me, Satan! For it is written: 'Worship the Lord your God, and serve him only.'" [Matthew 4:10] . Mark …[12:29] And Jesus answered him, The first of all the commandments [is,] Hear, O Israel; The Lord our God is one Lord: [12:30] And thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind, and with all thy strength: this is the first commandment. To love thy neighbour as thyself: . Mark [12:31] And the second [is] like, [namely] this, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. There is none other commandment greater than these. To believe that there is only one God: . Now this is eternal life: that they know you, the only true God , and Jesus Christ, whom you have sent [John 17:3] Jesus presented all the above to the best of his ability and left an alibi: . There is a judge for the one who rejects me and does not accept my words ; the very words I have spoken will condemn them at the last day [John 12:48] (MORE)

None. Jesus is the Son of God who is currently in Heaven at the right hand of the Father.
Our Blessed Lord, Jesus Christ did not affect the Catholic Church, He established the Catholic Church.
The presentation of Jesus in the temple was to fulfil the Law (Exodus 13:2;12-15). Jesus while on earth was very careful to fulfil the Law of Moses, and so also did His mother and Joseph as they were believers in God and His laws.
Christians believe that God (Yahweh) is in three Persons. God the Father, God the Son (Jesus) and God the Holy Spirit. No matter which One you are speaking about, that One is God and so God is present in Jesus because He is God.
When you accept Jesus Christ in your heart, he should change everyarea of your life. You should see a change in your actions. You trya lot harder to follow His commandments.
