What does following jesus and sharing in his mission mean?
That you are his disciple. If your heart is leading you to do that, it may be a proof that you are a "born again", spirit filled Christian. Only through leading of the Holy Spirit one can embark on this journey.
Following Jesus means that you believe in him heartily and accept that you are a sinner, and sharing his mission means you spread the good news

To provide final and only perfect blood sacrifice for sin, with the power and purity to cover all sin forever (If a person chooses to accept the gift).
In His own words: Matthew 5:17 - Do not think that I came to destroy the Law or the Prophets. I did not come to destroy but to fulfill. Matthew 18:11 - For the Son of Man has come to save that which was lost. Matthew 20:28 - just as the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serv…e, and to give His life a ransom for many. Mark 1:38 - But He said to them, "Let us go into the next towns, that I may preach there also, because for this purpose I have come forth." Luke 4:18-21 - "The Spirit of the Lord is upon Me, Because He has anointed Me To preach the gospel to the poor; He has sent Me to heal the brokenhearted, To proclaim liberty to the captives And recovery of sight to the blind, To set at liberty those who are oppressed; 19 To proclaim the acceptable year of the Lord." 20 Then He closed the book, and gave it back to the attendant and sat down. And the eyes of all who were in the synagogue were fixed on Him. 21 And He began to say to them, "Today this Scripture is fulfilled in your hearing." John 9:39 - And Jesus said, "For judgment I have come into this world, that those who do not see may see, and that those who see may be made blind." John 10:10 - The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly. John 12:46 - I have come as a light into the world, that whoever believes in Me should not abide in darkness. [Quotes from NKJV] (MORE)
Christians believe that there is one God and that Jesus is the Son of God, at the same time equal to God and the Holy Spirit as a person of the godhead known as the Holy Trinity. They believe that the mission of Jesus was to forgive sins and thereby save those who believe.
Anyone who does what Jesus commanded is the follower of Jesus. . Jesus said to him, "Away from me, Satan! For it is written: ' Worship the Lord your God , and serve him only .'" [Matthew 4:10]
The three-fold mission of Jesus Christ are 1. Prophetic Mission 2. Kingly Mission 3. Priestly Mission
Many people who believed on him, including his disciples. See Matthew 14.13. When Jesus heard [of it], he departed thence by ship into a desert place apart: and when the people had heard [thereof], they followed him on foot out of the cities.
The mission of Jesus was to come into the world , and to die on the cross for the sins of the whole world.
It is really difficult to summarize in a nutshell why Jesus existed and did what he did but he came to save the lost and pay for our sins in order for us to enter into his kingdom.
A: Christians believe that Jesus Christ was the founder of their religion. They say that he preached great moral truths and healed the sick, then was executed by crucifixion in Jerusalem, by the orders of the Roman governor Pontius Pilate. In the gospel stories, Jesus did not really enunciate a… mission to the world, but Christians believe that his crucifixion was part of a divine plan that would allow God to forgive mankind its sins, by his death on the cross. On this view, his mission was to become known, so that people would believe and be saved. Against this, Mark's Gospel says that Jesus frequently commanded those he healed not to tell others about him, suggesting that he really did not want himself to become known. Many say that Jesus Christ will return to earth and establish a kingdom of heaven on earth. . (MORE)
One must consider that Jesus was considered the Word of God by his Jewish followers. In the written Word of the Hebrew religion were laws regarding human behavior. The law in sum described the model citizen of the Hebrew community. The words were written on paper, but what would this person look lik…e in the flesh? Enter Jesus Christ. Under the covenant God made with Israel, through Moses, or what is known as the "Mosaic" covenant, the method to be justified as "good" in the sight of God was to keep the laws in his word. As stated, if Jesus is the physical manifestation of what the model citizen would look like, to be justified as "good" in God's sight, one would have to meet all of the requirements of character and behavior that Jesus exhibited. The Mosaic revelations of God's word for the ideal person were specific to the Hebrews, but were, and still are, generally known to all people. Laws such as, "Do not covet" or "Do not murder" or "Do not falsely accuse your neighbor" are found as foundational moral absolutes in cultures world wide, even cultures that know little to nothing about the Hebrew ordinances. All people understand in some way how the model person should behave. The problem for all people however, and especially for the Hebrew who was loaded with hundreds of specific laws for behavior, is that they don't always follow these laws, and indeed they are incapable of it. No Hebrew could be like Jesus Christ. God used the Hebrews as a physical example for all to look to. People can perfectly understand, through their example, that no one can be the ideal person. The sacrifice of Jesus Christ is the specific revelation of God's plan of reconciliation with humanity. Jesus, representing everything God wanted in a Hebrew, was willingly sacrificed by God in a public way, and it was commanded that this message be brought to all the peoples of the world, throughout all time. The message is this: God is willing to sacrifice the word, in the flesh, to reconcile those that aren't capable of meeting his laws for perfection in their flesh. Essentially, God has revoked the law in the flesh as the requirement for justification in his sight. How can one be labeled a "sinner" in God's sight, if God has no law to judge by? The concept of guilty in a court of law is based on nothing more than a law that indicates guilt. If the law is taken away, no guilty verdict can be rendered. However, through the resurrection of Christ, we see that God did not permanently erase the image of a perfect son, but raised him in a new form, and brought him out of this fleshly world. It was then revealed that the law for justification is to "believe" in the model citizen, who exists in the new form, and if this belief is found in a person, God will raise that person someday and give them the exact character image of his perfect Son. That person will eventually become the man who they believe in and want to be. Jesus' mission is to give people and understanding of God and their relationship with him, and believing in Jesus causes many truths to enter the mind. 1) God will not hold one accountable to the standards of perfection in the flesh if they believe in the standards 2) One is not capable of keeping the standards in the flesh, or God would not have needed to sacrifice the fleshly system for justification 3) God still holds his standard man in the highest regard, so people also, who believe in him, should hold him in the highest regard as well, and they should naturally follow in his footsteps even while still in the flesh 4) Because the law for justification in the flesh was sacrificed, one should not hold his neighbor to these standards for justification in their sight, and have infinite forgiveness for people who sin against them. If one truly understands the Gospel, and rejects it as false, they indicate to God that they believe the system for justification continues to reside in the flesh, or that no justification is required in his sight at all. This causes alienation between them and God, and between them and their neighbors. No love can truly exist in a fleshly system for justification, since no one can live up to the standard in the flesh. And equally, no love can exist in a system where the laws of loving one's neighbor have been rejected outright. Either way, after having received the knowledge of Christ crucified and resurrected, if one rejects the message, they are rejecting the very nature of God. This will eventually lead to destruction from his presence due to their unwillingness to identify with him. (MORE)
Jesus is a member of the Godhead. (father, son, spirit) He is the King of Kings and Lord of Lords, having existed from eternities past. He was born of a virgin in bethlehem, and came into the world fully God & fully man. He lived for 33 years on the earth, teaching, serving, loving, and proclaiming …the kingdom of God. He said he was "the light of the world" and "the bread of life.". He "came into the world to save sinners"; to bring peace between God and man. He came on a rescue mission for those who are dead to God to make them alive to God. He died as a substitute to rescue those who would repent and believe in him to be rescued from their sin and it's consequences. Three days after his death, he rose from the dead and appeared to more than five hundred people before ascending back into heaven. The Bible says he will return one day to judge the world according to what each one has done and will bring rescue to those who believe in him. Those who do not believe in Jesus will go to eternal punishment in hell, and those who believe will go to eternal life in heaven. (MORE)
Jesus' mission was to seek and to save the lost, and to give them repentance unto life, as his first recorded words in Mark's Gospel state: The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand: repent ye , and believe the gospel. (Mark1.15)
This is from the Old Testament idea that the Word of God was mediated to the people by three types of individuals: priests, kings & prophets. The priest was basically concerned with purity. It was the priests' duty to ensure that God's people were pure enough to come into God's presence. Jesus fu…lfilled this function by purifying us of sin. The king was the judge and agent of justice for the people. It was the king's duty to see that all people were treated equitably and justly, and to right wrongs. Jesus fulfills this function by acting as judge and advocate. Notably, Jesus' teachings in Matthew are largely concerned with how we commend/condemn ourselves by our own words and actions, particularly with the way in which we treat others (justly or unjustly). The prophet's role was not about predicting the future. It was about speaking truth to power. The prophet was the voice of God to the kings and political power structures, warning them of the need for justice, mercy and uprightness. Jesus fulfilled this function by speaking truth to the religio-political powers of his day, especially the priestly class which wielded enormous influence at the time, and was often more concerned with maintaining its own power than doing God's will. Generally, Matthew's gospel presents the "kingly" picture of Jesus ; Mark presents the "prophetic" picture of Jesus; and Luke presents the "priestly" picture of Jesus. Hope that helps. Peace to you.

Jesus Christ is the son of God. God sent his son to Earth in the form of a baby to save the world of its sins. Jesus died on the cross for all people, and raised again 3 days later. Jesus said that the only way to Heaven is through him. . God did not send his Son into the world to condemn its peo…ple. He sent him to save them! -- John 3:17 . "Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners." This saying is true, and it can be trusted. I was the worst sinner of all! -- 1 Timothy 1:15 . God sent his Son to be the Savior of the world. We saw his Son and are now telling others about him. -- 1 John 4:14 . God has done it all! He sent Christ to make peace between himself and us, and he has given us the work of making peace between himself and others. -- 2 Corinthians 5:18 . No one is really willing to die for an honest person, though someone might be willing to die for a truly good person. But God showed how much he loved us by having Christ die for us, even though we were sinful. But there is more! Now that God has accepted us because Christ sacrificed his life's blood, we will also be kept safe from God's anger. Even when we were God's enemies, he made peace with us, because his Son died for us. Yet something even greater than friendship is ours. Now that we are at peace with God, we will be saved by his Son's life. And in addition to everything else, we are happy because God sent our Lord Jesus Christ to make peace with us. -- Romans 5:7-11 . Just as we will die because of Adam, we will be raised to life because of Christ. Adam brought death to all of us, and Christ will bring life to all of us. -- 1 Corinthians 15:21-22 . And you gave him power over all people, so that he would give eternal life to everyone you give him. Eternal life is to know you, the only true God, and to know Jesus Christ, the one you sent. I have brought glory to you here on earth by doing everything you gave me to do. -- John 17:2-4 . Everything and everyone that the Father has given me will come to me, and I won't turn any of them away. I didn't come from heaven to do what I want! I came to do what the Father wants me to do. He sent me, and he wants to make certain that none of the ones he has given me will be lost. Instead, he wants me to raise them to life on the last day. My Father wants everyone who sees the Son to have faith in him and to have eternal life. Then I will raise them to life on the last day. -- John 6:37-40 . And God was pleased for him to make peace by sacrificing his blood on the cross, so that all beings in heaven and on earth would be brought back to God. You used to be far from God. Your thoughts made you his enemies, and you did evil things. But his Son became a human and died. So God made peace with you, and now he lets you stand in his presence as people who are holy and faultless and innocent. -- Colossians 1:20-22 . Christ has made peace between Jews and Gentiles, and he has united us by breaking down the wall of hatred that separated us. Christ gave his own body to destroy the Law of Moses with all its rules and commands. He even brought Jews and Gentiles together as though we were only one person, when he united us in peace. On the cross Christ did away with our hatred for each other. He also made peace between us and God by uniting Jews and Gentiles in one body. -- Ephesians 2:14-16 . Matthew 10:34 Think not that I am come to send peace on earth: I came not to send peace, but a sword. Luke 12:51 Suppose ye that I am come to give peace on earth?

The father shall be divided against the son, and the son against the father; the mother against the daughter, and the daughter against the mother; the mother in law against her daughter in law, and the daughter in law against her mother in law. . To firmly introduce the knowing quality which is what he represents to each of us, and to teach how to reach for the Christ consciousness in each of us . The mission of Jesus was to make everyone happy and live in a world where we are all equal. . Jesus was God in man form. He realized his children needed a living breathing flesh and bone man to walk with them and teach by example the right way to live and the way to return to their creator, him. God also had laws, one of which was if sins were committed, a sacrifice of an animal would have to be made. Jesus was that sacrifice for all mankind. That is why he is referred to as the lamb of God. To summarize, Jesus came to earth to teach and die, so that you would live. Jesus came to seek and to save that which was lost. Matthew 5:18: For verily I (Jesus)say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled. 5:19 Whosoever therefore shall break one of these least commandments, and s hall teach men so, he shall be called the least in the kingdom of heaven: but whosoever shall do and teach them, the same shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven. Luke 16:17 And it is easier for heaven and earth to pass, than one tittle of the law to fail. (Jesus) Answer John 10:10 (King James Version) 10The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly. Jesus came to give abundant life. This is further described in the start of the Gospel of John. Since Jesus is Himself the creator of life, He knows all about it. The light He brought is something that clearly demonstrates who He is and also reveals the wickedness and deceptions of people, which leads them into spiritual darkness and death. John 1:1-4 1In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2The same was in the beginning with God. 3All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made. 4In him was life; and the life was the light of men. 2 Timothy 1:10 10But is now made manifest by the appearing of our Saviour Jesus Christ , who has abolished death, and has brought life and immortality to light through the gospel: Answer The mission of Jesus Christ, the Savior of all, is to bring to pass the immortality and eternal life of man. Answer Jesus Christ, the son of a living God. Who came to earth through an earthly mother and whose father was God. His mission while here upon the earth was to bring to pass the immortality and eternal live of all mankind. He taught us how to live by His example, and by His teachings. He taught "As I have loved you, love one another". The King James Bible says his mission was to seek and to save sinners, and to give His life to pay for their sins. Luke 19:10 "For the Son of man is come to seek and to save that which was lost." Matthew 20:28 "Even as the Son of man came not to be ministered unto, but to minister, and to give his life a ransom for many." As Quoted from Jesus Himself: Luke 12:51 Suppose ye that I am come to give peace on earth? I tell you, Nay; but rather division: 12:52 For from henceforth there shall be five in one house divided, three against two, and two against three. 12:53 The father shall be divided against the son, and the son against the father; the mother against the daughter, and the daughter against the mother; the mother in law against her daughter in law, and the daughter in law against her mother in law. 22:35 And he said unto them, When I sent you without purse, and scrip, and shoes, lacked ye any thing? And they said, Nothing. 22:36 Then said he unto them, But now, he that hath a purse, let him take it, and likewise his scrip: and he that hath no sword, let him sell his garment, and buy one. Matthew 10:34 Think not that I am come to send peace on earth: I came not to send peace, but a sword . . Jesus Is the Son of God who, though existent before the world was created, made His entrance into this word veiled in the flesh of a human baby through the womb of Mary of Nazareth, a virgin. She was a devoted follower of God, but she is not divine, & should not be worshiped. The reason Jesus left the glories of Heaven where He was constantly worshiped by angels & cherubim for the toils of this earth was to die in our place & reconcile us to Himself. He loves mankind, but when Adam & Eve sinned in the Garden of Eden, man was separated from God. Sin was the reason that man could no longer be in God's physical presence, and all people are guilty of sin. God wants us to be brought back to Him, but He is so Holy & we are so exceedingly sinful, that no one ever has or ever will be able to live up to His standards. Since He loves us so & He knew we would never be able to earn our way back into His favor, He came to the earth & lived as a man, but as we clearly see through the many miracles & the confessions of those who wrote about Him, He retained the divinity of God while showing Himself in the form of a human. The Bible says He was tempted in the same ways that we are, but He never gave in to those temptations & He never committed sin of any kind. (Also, not that marriage is a sin, but He didn't get married while He was here.) The reason Jesus' sinlessness is so important is because He fulfilled the divine law which was given to the Israelites God's chosen people back in Exodus, the 2nd book of the Old Testament. These laws included, but are not limited to, the 10 Commandments. There are so many laws that a person could not even memorize them all, let alone keep them. God didn't issue these laws to condemn us, but to prove to us that we aren't able to get to Him on our own. The Bible describes the law as a schoolmaster which is intended to guide us to Christ. Jesus said the whole (healthy) don't need a physician, but those that are sick. That's true, what healthy person seeks the help of a doctor? So the law works to show us that we are spiritually sick & separated from God. The results of our sinfulness is that our souls go to hell when we die. But Jesus obeyed the law in every area, then He offered His life on the cross. However, being sinless, death had no claim over Him (For the wages of sin is death...) so He rose from the dead which is called the resurrection. That is significant in that He can also raise our souls, which are already dead in trespasses & sins, to new life through the power of His sacrifice of Himself in our place (...but the gift of God is eternal life through Christ Jesus, our Lord.) The only way for a human being to be made right with God & escape the torments of a literal & eternal hell is to accept the offering Jesus gave, to repent (turn from) their sins & be saved. I'll try to put it in simpler language: salvation means that all our sins are put on Jesus' account, which is paid in full already by His death, so they are "erased." Then all the righteousness that He has & all the favor He has in the eyes of God the Father, & His sinless perfection are put on our account. We are no longer guilty & condemned in God's eyes, but are covered in the beautiful goodness of His beloved Son. If we are saved, we will not have to pay the penalty for our sins (death) because Jesus already did. His sacrifice was sufficient for all who will come to Him. The Bible makes it clear that salvation is not a license to sin just because we won't be accountable for it's ultimate price, although saved people do sin, it isn't willingly & ought to be despised if one is right with God. A person can not be saved without the work of God's Holy Spirit in their heart. If you believe these truths I have shared & want to be saved, I suggest you purchase a King James Bible (not New King James) and read it, and obey what you read. Pray that God will send His Holy Spirit to lead you to Jesus. I don't know how God will go about bringing you to the end of your self where you realize that Jesus is all there is, but I believe He will. Jesus said He who cometh unto me I will in no wise (way) cast out. It could be instant, or it could take years, but if you want it bad enough you'll get it. Answer I would start by reading the Gospel of John in a modern Bible translation. Wikipedia is another good research source. The only reason for God's mission is He loves you more than you love yourself. That's why He came down to save you from the sinful life, because God expects us to be like Him. A sinful person can't enter God's kingdom with his sinful nature and the man himself can't cleanse his own sin; a sinless person only can take our sin and can give freedom from sin. Only God is sinless. For this reason only God came down as a man and was crucified on the cross for our sin but He rose again from the dead. If we believe Jesus died for sin and are ready to accept Him as our savior, we will be His child. God bless you. . Jesus had a mission of being the lamb, and to die on the cross. It was for the sins of the whole world. He was literally on a suicide mission to save the world. Mission accomplished. (MORE)
Judas did not interfere with the ministry of Jesus at all. In fact Judas helped move it into its conclusion. Jesus came to earth form heaven to died for mankind's sin. All men are born sinners and God cannot abide sin so He sent His only begotten Son to earth to die in the place of man and remove si…n from anyone who will accept Him as their Savior. Jesus had to die on the cross at Calvary and Judas was used to turn Jesus into the people who wanted to kill Him. If Jesus had not died we would have no salvation. (MORE)
A: Jesus as the only way to heaven is a uniquely Christian belief. For example, Muslims believe that you should be a Muslim to go to heaven. Daoists believe you are reincarnated until you achieve perfect spiritual knowledge and goodness, after which you also go to heaven. Some do not believe that h…eaven even exists. As for the Christian belief, when I was a young child living in an entirely Christian society, I read a beautiful poem about a Muslim who was so righteous that God told everyone he would go to heaven. This is the kind of thing I wish all children of all faiths were taught. Another Christian view was recently put by Cardinal George Pell, who said that in his view even atheists will "certainly" go to heaven if they have led good lives. Another Answer : The Scripture tells us that the only way to be in Paradise (Heaven) and see God is through Jesus Christ: . John 14:6 New International Version (NIV) . 6 Jesus answered, "I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me. It also tells us God's Plan for mankind in His great love for us. He did not create us to destroy us and fully understands, even empathizes via Jesus, how lost we have become without His Spirit within us. So what of the billions who never fully had the chance to get to accept Jesus as their Savior - the aborted, infant or childhood deaths, those who worshipped other 'gods/idols' or nothing? This is what the Judgement Process is for. All who wrongly or never knew the correct way to eternal life will have their chance before Jesus after the Millennial Rule - many Scriptures refer to this. Indeed, a future time is coming when God will write His Law upon each human's new heart so they will fully know God's way and not need someone else to interpret rightly or wrongly for them. They will then grow in this knowledge and have the opportunity to chose to become a son or daughter in the God Family or face the 2nd and permenant death (Romans 6:23). Lastly, the Scipture tells all who read it, that Heaven and God the Father, with His Son, will come to be with His new family on a New Earth (Revelation 21) which will become headquarters for the entire spiritual world. The Scripture is very clear that no one 'goes' to Heaven except Jesus (John 3:13). Quite the opposite, God and Heaven will come to Earth. That is the great hope of all humanity and not the teachings of men.. (MORE)
Jesus had 12 disciples - close followers - whom he taught throughout his mission.

In this g…roup was probably John Mark (the likely writer of the first gospel).

Jesus carried his burden to the top of a hill, and died upon it for his faith, Jesus said the same thing. … Keep in mind that at the time of Jesus, the cross was viewed as a torture. Today he would say something like, Take up your Electric Chair or Take up your Gillotine. To take up the torture for your faith and live through it in devotion and to the best of your ability. In the eyes of the Christians, the best of your ability is achieving theosis or God Like Qualities. .

Jesus Christ is known as many things to multiple religions; the king of the Jews, the son of God, the man who died for the sins of all mortal beings, the perfect example, savior of humanity and so much more. As a christian, I can definitely tell you that I believe all of those things in which I've s…aid. Let me tell you the basic story of Jesus Christ. The virgin, Mary, was given a child not from her husband, Joseph, or any other man. The child was put into Mary's womb, and when Joseph discovered her pregnancy, he was confused and furious. He thought she had slept with another man, but luckily it wasn't until that night when an angel had to literally come to him and inform him that she was still indeed a virgin, and that it was God's son in the womb, and that his name is Jesus. He was born on the night of December the 25 th . Christ mas. Through Jesus' life growing up, he was actually quite obedient! He's also known to be sinless, which is true. He never lied, always made the best decisions, and always did everything he could to help anybody who needed it, no matter who it was. This is a huge reason why he's known as the perfect example. (Suppose all the stories of Jesus were fake. If the stories were to be fake, it'd be quite obvious that somebody wanted humanity to consider this perfect character to live a great life and maybe even be known to be such a great person.) Jesus loved everybody, and everybody loved him... Well, not quite everyone. Although some Romans loved or cared for Jesus, so many other Romans and even some jews despised him and believed he was a fake. There were mobs of angry citizens that hated him for their own reasons... and wanted him dead. The king officially made the order of his death. He was to carry a very large and heavy wooden cross(symbol of Christ itself) to a hill where he was to be crucified. Before he was put on the cross, he was mocked of the name "King of the Jews" and a crown of thorny vines was forced onto his head. Then three extremely large nails were hammered through three parts of his body to attach him to the cross: His left and right hands, and the last one through the center of both of his feet. The cross was raised with Jesus nailed onto it, left there to die. Jesus then looked up and said to God loudly, "My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me?" He yelled it again, and died. The earth quaked and the bodies of saints arose from their graves. Some, in fear say, "Truly this was the Son of God." He was taken down later, Joseph had wrapped him in some cleaned cloths and was given his own tomb of large stone rocks. When he died, he wasn't quite done with his business. He had actually conquered death itself during his absence, and resurrected himself from the dead. Before Mary knew of his resurrection, she went to see her son one last time. An angel had appeared and informed her to tell his disciples that he is risen. Jesus went to where the group was. He then performed a few more of his miracles and one of his disciples went into the town. He then told many people that Jesus had come back from the dead and is doing great deeds. Many people came to see him and some brought their ill children to be cured. After he had done many great deeds for the people of the village, he used his own body to make bread and wine. The bread was made from his own flesh, and the wine to be his very blood. It was given to the people and they had officially received Christ into themselves and their lives. Jesus had died for our sins, defeated death, and had set himself as an example for humanity. Jesus is the son of God. The Bible isn't a book of rules. In fact if there are any real rules at all, it's the Ten Commandments that Moses had received from God. The Bible is actually a 2000-year-old history book, stories of real people and real events, all recorded into the Bible for one reason: To teach and set an example just as Jesus had done. Everything so that the world can live in peace for every human being to enjoy. Jesus loves everyone no matter who or what you are, he has no hatred. And that's a basic summary of Jesus for you. What us followers of Christ KNOW about Jesus Christ. Have a great day! Hope I told you enough! -Brandon (MORE)
The mission of Jesus is to come to earth once again , to judge mankind.
To call sinners to repentance and save them from eternal damnation in hell. . I have not come to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance." [Luke 5:32]
i believe so that prophetic simply means proclamatin of the word of God. Yes, it is more or less like priestly. One examplw of this is: .. young people evangilizes the word of God to youths especially children.
Christians believe that the mission of Jesus was to bring people to God and, through belief in him, ensure their salvation and a place in heaven. Objectively, this is a little difficult to explain, since the Jews among whom he lived already believed in God; moreover he seems to have been quite unsuc…cessful in having the Palestinian Jews, to whom he preached, believe in him as the Messiah. The New Testament says that Jesus taught some great moral values, but many Christians believe that salvation is by belief alone, and that good works are not necessary for salvation. On that view, the mission of Jesus was simply to be, so that people would believe that he was the Son of God. The gospels say that Jesus was the earthly son of Mary and Joseph, born in Bethlehem, near Jerusalem, and raised in Nazareth in Galilee. Matthew says that Joseph was the son of Jacob, while Luke says that Joseph was the son of Heli. In both cases, he traces his ancestry back through his paternal line to King David. (MORE)
A : Christians believe that Jesus is the son of God, who in turn is thought to be the one true god in the universe. Together with the Holy Spirit, they form a Holy Trinity, three persons in one God. Jesus taught many moral virtues, healed the sick and was executed by crucifixion. Christians believ…e that his crucifixion was to atone for the sins of the people, and that he rose from the dead on the third day. Christ comes from the Greek for Messiah, or "the anointed one", so Jesus is known as Jesus Christ. A: Jesus Christ came as a man and not as a god almighty to save our souls from Satan, find this out and you will be half way to saving your soul and saving others and understanding the real Jesus and his real message. Jesus could not tell anyone who he really was. (MORE)
According to the Gospel of John, Jesus was chosen for his mission before beginning the creation. He had already accepted it before anyplace even existed.
Other answers from our community: Jesus is a member of the Godhead. (father, son, spirit) He is theKing of Kings and Lord of Lords, having existed from eternitiespast. He was born of a virgin in bethlehem, and came into the worldfully God & fully man. He lived for 33 years on the earth,teaching, …serving, loving, and proclaiming the kingdom of God. Hesaid he was "the light of the world" and "the bread of life." He"came into the world to save sinners"; to bring peace between Godand man. He came on a rescue mission for those who are dead to Godto make them alive to God. He died as a substitute to rescue thosewho would repent and believe in him to be rescued from their sinand it's consequences. Three days after his death, he rose from thedead and appeared to more than five hundred people before ascendingback into heaven. The Bible says he will return one day to judgethe world according to what each one has done and will bring rescueto those who believe in him. Those who do not believe in Jesus willgo to eternal punishment in hell, and those who believe will go toeternal life in heaven. AnswerOne must consider that Jesus wasconsidered the Word of God by his Jewish followers. In the writtenWord of the Hebrew religion were laws regarding human behavior. Thelaw in sum described the model citizen of the Hebrew community. Thewords were written on paper, but what would this person look likein the flesh? Enter Jesus Christ. Under the covenant God made with Israel, through Moses, or what isknown as the "Mosaic" covenant, the method to be justified as"good" in the sight of God was to keep the laws in his word. Asstated, if Jesus is the physical manifestation of what the modelcitizen would look like, to be justified as "good" in God's sight,one would have to meet all of the requirements of character andbehavior that Jesus exhibited. The Mosaic revelations of God's word for the ideal person werespecific to the Hebrews, but were, and still are, generally knownto all people. Laws such as, "Do not covet" or "Do not murder" or"Do not falsely accuse your neighbor" are found as foundationalmoral absolutes in cultures world wide, even cultures that knowlittle to nothing about the Hebrew ordinances. All peopleunderstand in some way how the model person should behave. Theproblem for all people however, and especially for the Hebrew whowas loaded with hundreds of specific laws for behavior, is thatthey don't always follow these laws, and indeed they are incapableof it. No Hebrew could be like Jesus Christ. God used the Hebrewsas a physical example for all to look to. People can perfectlyunderstand, through their example, that no one can be the idealperson. The sacrifice of Jesus Christ is the specific revelation of God'splan of reconciliation with humanity. Jesus, representingeverything God wanted in a Hebrew, was willingly sacrificed by Godin a public way, and it was commanded that this message be broughtto all the peoples of the world, throughout all time. The messageis this: God is willing to sacrifice the word, in the flesh, toreconcile those that aren't capable of meeting his laws forperfection in their flesh. Essentially, God has revoked the law inthe flesh as the requirement for justification in his sight. Howcan one be labeled a "sinner" in God's sight, if God has no law tojudge by? The concept of guilty in a court of law is based onnothing more than a law that indicates guilt. If the law is takenaway, no guilty verdict can be rendered. However, through theresurrection of Christ, we see that God did not permanently erasethe image of a perfect son, but raised him in a new form, andbrought him out of this fleshly world. It was then revealed thatthe law for justification is to "believe" in the model citizen, whoexists in the new form, and if this belief is found in a person,God will raise that person someday and give them the exactcharacter image of his perfect Son. That person will eventuallybecome the man who they believe in and want to be. Jesus' mission is to give people and understanding of God and theirrelationship with him, and believing in Jesus causes many truths toenter the mind. 1) God will not hold one accountable to thestandards of perfection in the flesh if they believe in thestandards 2) One is not capable of keeping the standards in theflesh, or God would not have needed to sacrifice the fleshly systemfor justification 3) God still holds his standard man in thehighest regard, so people also, who believe in him, should hold himin the highest regard as well, and they should naturally follow inhis footsteps even while still in the flesh 4) Because the law forjustification in the flesh was sacrificed, one should not hold hisneighbor to these standards for justification in their sight, andhave infinite forgiveness for people who sin against them. If one truly understands the Gospel, and rejects it as false, theyindicate to God that they believe the system for justificationcontinues to reside in the flesh, or that no justification isrequired in his sight at all. This causes alienation between themand God, and between them and their neighbors. No love can trulyexist in a fleshly system for justification, since no one can liveup to the standard in the flesh. And equally, no love can exist ina system where the laws of loving one's neighbor have been rejectedoutright. Either way, after having received the knowledge of Christcrucified and resurrected, if one rejects the message, they arerejecting the very nature of God. This will eventually lead todestruction from his presence due to their unwillingness toidentify with him. (MORE)
The Son of God (Jesus the Christ) was sent to earth to reconcile man (human beings) to God. Jesus was the perfect sacrifice to satisfy God and so He went to the cross to die for us. He took our place so that we could have everlasting life with our creator. This was His mission.

I think that was the one where they sailed to the New World and gave Joseph a book.
In the land of Judea which is in the land of present day Israel. All of Jesus' missions were in Judea, apart from two brief forays into a neighbouring country, The Decapolis.
There were and are many people who follow Jesus, but he chose only a few, as you can see in Luke 6.14,15, where the names of the twelve disciples that Jesus chose are listed.

When the bible refers to 'saints' it means only the humans that love Christ and obey the commandments. There were many people that fit this description starting with His disciples. Roman Catholic Answer To be a saint, as the word has commonly been used in the church, is to be in heaven. When a p…erson is declared a saint, either by common acclamation or by the Church in its canonization process, that is a declaration that the person lived the mission given to them by Our Blessed Lord throughout their life, or as St. Paul says, they have won the race so as to win. All the saints followed the mission given them by Jesus, or they would not be saints. (MORE)
Jesus said to him, "Away from me, Satan! For it is written: ' Worship the Lord your God, and serve him only .'" [Matthew 4:10] . And Jesus answered him, The first of all the commandments [is,] Hear, O Israel; The Lord our God is one Lord : * And thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all t…hy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind , and with all thy strength: this is the first commandment [Mark 12:29-30]. . And the second [is] like, [namely] this, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself . There is none other commandment greater than these [Mark 12:31]. . I have not come to call the righteous, but (call) sinners to repentance ." [Luke 5:32] (MORE)
No. Jesus' mission was to die. John the Baptist said this about Jesus (in the Gospel of John chapter 1 verse 29) "behold the lamb of God who takes away the sin of the earth." Peter also writes in the book of 1 Peter chapter 1 verse 19: ....(we are redeemed) "with the precious blood of Christ ,… a lamb without blemish". Throughout the history of mankind The way for a person to approach God was through the offering of a sacrifice. But now it is not necessary to offer sacrifices to God because Jesus the Lamb of God was sacrificed for all sins. To receive the benefit of Jesus' sacrifice you must believe that you are separated from God your creator and do not have a relationship with Him. Then you must accept God's gift of salvation; Joh 3:17 For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved. (MORE)
The "Wold" are a savage race of creature, found primarily in zero-humidity-jungles. Jesus Christ is the one who will bring peace and love to these savage, but well dressed, monsters.
Jesus told His followers to do this so that they will remember whatHe did: Luke 22:19 And He took bread, gave thanks and broke it, and gave itto them, saying, "This is My body which is given for you; do thisin remembrance of Me." This is reiterated by Paul in Corinthians: 1Co 11:25 In the same m…anner He also took the cup after supper,saying, "This cup is the new covenant in My blood. This do, asoften as you drink it, in remembrance of Me." 1Co 11:26 For as often as you eat this bread and drink this cup,you proclaim the Lord's death till He comes. There is no special significance in taking bread and wine it is aform of remembrance - we forget very quickly. (MORE)

Jesus Christ went to the cross of Calvary dying there and taking all of mankind's sin with Him, thereby paying the price for our sin that if we accept Him as Savior we will inherit eternal life in heaven with Him. He also was resurrected by the Father proving that the Father accepted Jesus' sacrific…e as worthy to save mankind. He was the perfect sacrifice for our sin as He was sinless as a Man and as God (God can not sin). Salvation does not come automatically. You have to accept Jesus as your personal Savior. John 14:6, "I am the way, the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father but through Me." (MORE)
