ANSWER: 1 Peter 3:18 For Christ also hath once suffered for sins, the just for the unjust. John:3:14-17 14: And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wildernes…s, even so must the Son of man be lifted up: 15: That whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have eternal life. 16: For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. 17: For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved. Isaiah:53 1: Who hath believed our report? and to whom is the arm of the LORD revealed? 2: For he shall grow up before him as a tender plant, and as a root out of a dry ground: he hath no form nor comeliness; and when we shall see him, there is no beauty that we should desire him. 3: He is despised and rejected of men; a man of sorrows, and acquainted with grief: and we hid as it were our faces from him; he was despised, and we esteemed him not. 4: Surely he hath borne our griefs, and carried our sorrows: yet we did esteem him stricken, smitten of God, and afflicted. 5: But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed. 6: All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned every one to his own way; and the LORD hath laid on him the iniquity of us all. 7: He was oppressed, and he was afflicted, yet he opened not his mouth: he is brought as a lamb to the slaughter, and as a sheep before her shearers is dumb, so he openeth not his mouth. 8: He was taken from prison and from judgment: and who shall declare his generation? for he was cut off out of the land of the living: for the transgression of my people was he stricken. 9: And he made his grave with the wicked, and with the rich in his death; because he had done no violence, neither was any deceit in his mouth. 10: Yet it pleased the LORD to bruise him; he hath put him to grief: when thou shalt make his soul an offering for sin, he shall see his seed, he shall prolong his days, and the pleasure of the LORD shall prosper in his hand. 11: He shall see of the travail of his soul, and shall be satisfied: by his knowledge shall my righteous servant justify many; for he shall bear their iniquities. 12: Therefore will I divide him a portion with the great, and he shall divide the spoil with the strong; because he hath poured out his soul unto death: and he was numbered with the transgressors; and he bare the sin of many, and made intercession for the transgressors. 2Timothy:1:10: But is now made manifest by the appearing of our Savior Jesus Christ, who hath abolished death, and hath brought life and immortality to light through the gospel: Romans:5:17-19 17: For if by one man's offense death reigned by one; much more they which receive abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness shall reign in life by one, Jesus Christ.) 18: Therefore as by the offense of one judgment came upon all men to condemnation; even so by the righteousness of one the free gift came upon all men unto justification of life. 19: For as by one man's disobedience many were made sinners, so by the obedience of one shall many be made righteous. Rom:5:10: For if, when we were enemies, we were reconciled to God by the death of his Son, much more, being reconciled, we shall be saved by his life. Romans:5:6,8,and 9. For when we were yet without strength, in due time Christ died for the ungodly. 8: But God commended his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. 9: Much more then, being now justified by his blood, we shall be saved from wrath through him. Rom:3:23: For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God; 1 Corinthians 15:3 Christ died for our sins. Romans 6:23 For the wages of sin is death. John 1:12 But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God.
Since Adam all mankind was born as being tainted with the original sin committed by Adam and Eve. This being so all mankind would be resurrected but would have no chance… to return to Gods presence unless someone atoned on behalf of mankind. Christ was the only sinless one who was able to do this. It was He who gave his life in payment for the transgressions of Adam and mankind. This payment of the debt has no effect on any of Gods children unless they repent and accept Christ as their savior. That they will be resurrected is true but they will not spent the eternities with God.
because He can bring you everlasting life and into heaven. He also died so everyone could be forgiven of their sins and so we could do not need to die like Jesus did. He is so… important because He did that for us. That is proof that He loves us. At the heart of the catechesis we find in essence the only Son if the Father who suffered and died for us who now is living with us forever. To catechize in the person if Christ the whole of God's eternal design reaching fulfillment.Catechesis aims at putting people on communion with Jesus Christ:only he can lead us to love of the Father in the spirit and make us share in the life of the Holy Trinity.Jesus resurrection glorifies the name of the savior God.The transmission of the Christian faith consist in proclaiming Jesus Christ in order ti lead others to faith in him.
He made the world,wow,thats a hard q..
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."
The ultimate reason for the resurrection of Jesus is to occupy the throne of "heaven". A sacrificial lamb does not need to be resurrected for the atonement to suff…ice. Pontius Pilate asked Jesus if he was indeed a king. Jesus' answer to Pilate gives us a very important clue; "My kingdom is not of this world". If Jesus was the "son" of the creator of all the universe, this would not be a truthful answer. Another important clue is the prayer Jesus taught us to pray. "Our Father who is in heaven... your kingdom come, your will be done on earth as it is in heaven..." . The coronation of Jesus has already occurred. His kingdom is approaching [ in every sense] and the two kingdoms will become as one. There is a war looming which will be won by the forces of "heaven". [ H.A.A.R.P. will fail!]
This is where he grew up in... It is also called "The Holy City"
Jesus Christ came that He might die for our sins, and pay the penalty owed God in payment for those sins by surrendering His life for us and shedding His blood for us that who…soever might then believe on Him, might be saved. That operation wasn't possible until He surrendered His life for us, died, rose again, ascended to Heaven, and then the Holy Spirit, referred to as the Comforter was sent that would enable men who then believed to be "reborn" with a new spirit, a new man. Or born again. None of this was possible until Jesus laid down his life for us, as it was only He that could accomplish this mission to save mankind from eternal destruction.
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.
yes Jesus is very important to christians as old prophecies were fulfilled. And we have salvation. No other religion gives you that.
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 thi…nk 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.
Christianity came around after Jesus' Accsention. After Jesus had led his life showing people that he was the "Christ" his belivers and his disciples began to teach people abo…ut the word of God. Thats basically how it came about
In The Bible
The transfiguration happened about a week after Jesus plainly told His disciples that He would suffer, be killed, and be raised to life (Luke 9:22), He took Peter, James a…nd John up a mountain to pray. While praying, His personal appearance was changed into a glorified form, and His clothing became dazzling white. Moses and Elijah appeared and talked with Jesus about His death that would soon take place. The purpose of the transfiguration of Jesus was so that the "inner circle" of His disciples Peter, James and John could gain a greater understanding of who Jesus was. Jesus underwent a dramatic change in appearance in order that the disciples could behold Him in His glory. The disciples, who had only known Him in His human body, now had a greater realization of the deity of Christ, though they could not fully comprehend it.
