Who was Jesus Christ?. Mark: He was the Victorious King.. Matthew and Luke: He was the Son of God.. John: He was God himself.. In the Four Gospels are presented three different perspectives on the same story of the Christ. In Mark he is represented as the coming King. In Matthew and Luke we have… the story of the miraculous conception -- he is represented as the Son of God. In John he is declared to be God himself. "In the beginning was the Word [Christ], and the Word was with God, and the Word was God" (i, 1).. Though all the Gospels point to the fact that Jesus was both fully God and fully man, each one does have a differing focus. Mark focuses on Christ's humanity; Matthew upon the fact that Jesus was the long awaited Hebrew Messiah; Luke upon the fact that Jesus was the Redeemer of all mankind; and finally John upon the fact that Jesus is the fully realized expression of who God is.. Answer to your question: . Luke presents a Jesus who has come to die for the atonement of the whole human race. He points for example by taking the genealogy of Jesus all the way back to Adam and Eve instead of back to the Abrahamic or Davidic roots that were considered more relevant and popular at the time. However, because of the setting (Jewish culture and practices) into which Jesus comes the reader can get disoriented and lose sight of the fact that Jesus was humanity's savior not just the Jews.

Yes:2:52, And Jesus increased in wisdom and stature, and in favourwith God and man." How could an omniscient being (Jesus) "increasein wisdom?" And how could God (Jesus) increase "in favour with God?(Jehovah/Yahweh)" 4:5, The devil takes Jesus to the top of a mountain and shows him"all the kingdoms …of the world." The world was flat in those days. 6:29-30 Invite someone that has hit you to do it again, and ifsomeone steals from you offer them something additional. Don't turndown any borrowers, and when you loan something don't ask for itback. 9:7-8,There were various opinions about the identity of Jesus. Somethought he was Elijah or one of the prophets; others that he wasthe risen John the Baptist. 9:27, Jesus falsely predicts that some of his listeners would liveto see him return and establish the kingdom of God. 9:39-42, Epilepsy is caused by devils. 18:20, "Thou knowest the commandments." But apparently Jesusdidn't, since he only named five of the Ten Commandments. (Noticethat the five on Jesus' list are the secular ones that make nomention of God.) 22:36, "He that hath no sword, let him sell his garment, and buyone." 18:25, Rich people cannot go to heaven (?). "For it is easier for acamel to go through a needle's eye, than for a rich man to enterinto the kingdom of God." (MORE)
These verses are similar to what Jesus said to the hypocrites who brought the woman caught in adultery, 'he who is without sin, let him be the first to cast a stone at her.' They all left because they saw their own hearts as not being blameless, and so, as it says below Christians are called to not …be 'holier than thou' and to have an awareness of their own failings and faults, before confronting others. Jesus of course said many other challenging things, all of which are still relevant today, to those to whom it is addressed. . Matthew 7:1-5 (King James Version) . 1 Judge not, that ye be not judged. . 2For with what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged: and with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you again. . 3And why beholdest thou the mote that is in thy brother's eye, but considerest not the beam that is in thine own eye? . 4Or how wilt thou say to thy brother, Let me pull out the mote out of thine eye; and, behold, a beam is in thine own eye? . 5Thou hypocrite, first cast out the beam out of thine own eye; and then shalt thou see clearly to cast out the mote out of thy brother's eye. .

In physics and engineering, moment is usually defined as the force which causes anything to rotate. Just like force, which causes an object to move in a linear direction. Moment can be treated like the force which causes an object to rotate about a certain defined axis. Unlike force however, an axis… of rotation needs to be defined before moment can be calculated.

"Life's challenges are not supposed to paralyse you; they're supposed to help you discover who you are." This was a quote which was written by an American historian and musician called Bernice Johnson. a challenge is something that is hard to overcome
A minute portion or point in time. Additionally ... you will encounter moments if you read about levers and mechanical advantage.
A moment (or torque) is a turning effect or force that depends on two thing. It depends on the size of the force which is measured in newtons and the perpendicular distance form the force to the pivot which is measured in metres. The end result is always given in newton-metres.

When was the qoute The ultimate measure of man is not where he stands in moments of comfort but in times of challenge and controversy said?
"The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments ofcomfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challengeand controversy" was a quote by Martin Luther King Jr. He wrotethis in Strength to Love in 1963.
The term "living moment to moment" implies that you should notworry about the future and just live each day as it passes.Worrying can take away from the excitement of life.
The phrase is based on the "concept" of the moment at which you decide to accept Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior, but it has a secular meaning. A "come to Jesus moment" refers to a dawning, epiphany or agreement following a disagreement. It refers to when the light blub comes on and you underst…and something or make a critical decision.

According to Catholic beliefs what are some of the challenges to the Christian belief that Jesus Christ was both human and divine?
The Christian belief is the Catholic belief: Jesus Christ possessed two natures, a human one, and a divine one. All Catholics believe this as one of their Faith's core dogmas.
The Challenger was a space shuttle that was going to be launched from Florida. But the night before it was supposed to be launched, it was cold and the o-rings froze up. When the Challenger launched, it made it up off the ground, but then it exploded and the entire crew was lost.

The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy?
Quite odd that this is a question. The statement itself contains the answer. If the true measure of a man was contingent upon men whom only faced times of comfort, it's scary to even think how much more worse off society would be. Controversy, though not welcomed, tends to make the person stronger. …Not to mention, more experienced and prepared to address a myriad of challenges. That said, where a man chooses to stand when he has a choice of comfort or controversy, is a testament to his character and personal fortitude. Bro Blue The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy......how true! (MORE)
In one sense Jesus didn't have any challenges, if you mean challenge to be something difficult we face that we have to work hard to overcome or achieve by our own ability. As a true human being, Jesus relied every moment of his life on the power of the Holy Spirit to fulfill his Father's plan. He di…d nothing in his own strength or by sheer will power - it was as the Father enabled him, by the power of the Holy Spirit. In this, he showed us what true human living is - a life of complete dependance on God; saying 'Father, not my will but yours be done'; knowing that everything we are and have comes as a sheer gift from the Father, and that 'He who calls us is faithful; he will surely do it' (1 Thessalonians 5:24).\n. \nYet at the same time, Jesus was confronted every day with 'challenges' in the sense of confrontations with people and events that flew in the face of Who he was and what he was doing. The Devil tried to tempt him to step aside form his mission; people came to him with demands that he meet their needs; he was faced with peoples' expectation that he would set up an earthly kingdom on the spot; the leaders of the day were constantly arguing with him and trying to trick him into saying something that would make him out to be a fake; sometimes people came to him with questions and expectations that were just plain dumb and ignorant.\n. \nJesus confronted a crowd of people who were misusing the Temple, and displayed divine, righteous anger; he became frustrated with those who always expected him to do a miracle, or with his disciples who continually failed to get the point, or with the religious leaders who constantly mistreated the poor, women, children and 'sinners'.\n. \nHis greatest 'challenge' (in this second sense of the word) thought was when he faced the cross and all that involved. As the time approached, Jesus became 'deeply troubled in his spirit' (John 13:21) - yet in the next moment was able to say to his disciples ''Let not your hearts be troubled' (John 14:1)! At the cross Jesus bore the full weight of all of the righteous anger of God against our sin and rebellion. This was not just an 'objective' carrying of guilt, but in that moment (and the time leading up to it) Jesus also experienced the full horror of human shame, remorse, hopelessness, fear and loathing. He would have had all the prideful, vengeful, malicious, angry, depressed, guilt-ridden thoughts that all human beings have thought pass through his mind and conscience. It is no wonder that it is said that he was unrecognizable - not just from his physical beatings, but also because of what all this experience of humanity's guilt would have done to him.\n. \nWe're told that even this was done in the power and enabling of the Holy Spirit (Hebrews 9:14). Jesus didn't so much face the challenge, bolster up all his strength, and then push through to make it happen. He simply surrendered himself to the Father and to his Father's will. That's the key for us, too.\n. \nI guess all the 'challenges' of Jesus' life kinda pale into insignificance in light of the challenge of the cross. So incredible is his love for us, that He did this for us! (MORE)
What does this quote mean the ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in the moments of comfort but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy?
It means you can truly see what a man is made of when he is facingdanger.
Jesus repeatedly challenged people both directly in conversation with those whom He encountered and indirectly through His life and teaching. One example is when He healed the man with the withered hand in the synagogue on the Sabbath. The synagogue ruler was angry about this and Jesus pointed ou…t that the same man would not hesitate to get an animal out of a ditch on the Sabbath, thus exposing his hypocrisy and wrong priorities.

What he claimed to be true merely by his existing was the main and potentially only way he challenged how people thought.. Another perspective: . Jesus continually challenged the way people thought, and His teachings still challenge our thinking to this day. Good examples are found by seekin…g out His " But I say " statements recorded in Matthew.. Matthew 5:21, 22 - "You have heard that it was said to those of old, 'You shall not murder, and whoever murders will be in danger of the judgment.' But I say to you that whoever is angry with his brother without a cause shall be in danger of the judgment. And whoever says to his brother, 'Raca!' shall be in danger of the council. But whoever says, 'You fool!' shall be in danger of hell fire." . Matthew 5:27, 28 - "You have heard that it was said to those of old, 'You shall not commit adultery.' But I say to you that whoever looks at a woman to lust for her has already committed adultery with her in his heart." . Matthew 5:31-35 - "Furthermore it has been said, 'Whoever divorces his wife, let him give her a certificate of divorce.' But I say to you that whoever divorces his wife for any reason except sexual immorality causes her to commit adultery; and whoever marries a woman who is divorced commits adultery." Again you have heard that it was said to those of old, 'You shall not swear falsely, but shall perform your oaths to the Lord.' But I say to you , do not swear at all: neither by heaven, for it is God's throne; nor by the earth, for it is His footstool; nor by Jerusalem, for it is the city of the great King." . Matthew 5:43-45 - "You have heard that it was said, 'You shall love your neighbor and hate your enemy.' But I say to you , love your enemies, bless those who curse you, do good to those who hate you, and pray for those who spitefully use you and persecute you, that you may be sons of your Father in heaven; for He makes His sun rise on the evil and on the good, and sends rain on the just and on the unjust." . Matthew 12:36 - But I say to you that for every idle word men may speak, they will give account of it in the day of judgment. . These are just a few of the most obvious examples of Jesus challenging peoples' thinking; there are numerous others. The gospel writers often mention the reaction to His teachings, too:. Matthew 7:28, 29 - And so it was, when Jesus had ended these sayings, that the people were astonished at His teaching , for He taught them as one having authority, and not as the scribes. .

A: Three important ways in which Mark's Gospelportrays Jesus are: . Racist. In chapter 7, he called Gentiles 'dogs' and only agreedto help a Gentile woman when she humbly accepted thatdescription. . Given to irrational anger, as when he cursed the fig tree fornot bearing fruit out of season. . …Less than divine. He had some extraordinary powers and Godcalled him his son, but Mark did not believe him to be one withGod. For example: 6:5: And he (Jesus) could there do no mightywork . 10:18 Why call me good. There is none good but God . These portrayals present a challenge for the reader conditioned tobelieve in Jesus as without sin, and fully divine and pre-existing. (MORE)
As a rabbi from an outlying province, Galilee, he traveled to Jerusalem (in the final week of his earthly life) to confront what he viewed as corrupt practices by the Jerusalem Temple leaders, called the Sadducees. The most notable example of this, as told in the Gospels, is when Jesus overturned th…e table of the moneychangers, who were engaging in the practice of usury inside a holy place. Interestingly, Martin Luther,with his Ninety-five Theses in 1517, began the religious Reformation in Europe, by confronting the religious leader of the Catholic Church in Rome, the Pope, for condoning the sale of indulgences (promises of salvation, among them) for money, to the Catholic parishioners. These parallels continue, nowadays, as we see corrupt politicians doing backroom deals for large corporations, that are not in the interests of the people (e.g. outsourcing of jobs overseas, among many other examples).

In what ways did the parable of the Good Samaritan challenge the accepted ideas of most Jewish people in the time of Jesus?
To say that the Jewish and Samaritan people didn't like each other would be putting it mildly. Therefore, having the "hero" of the parable be a Samaritan was quite a shock. In addition, note that the priest (who should have been a "good guy") didn't offer to help the injured man at all - same for th…e others who "passed him buy". (MORE)

Jesus challenged the religious (perhaps they were pious, perhaps they weren't) leaders for three main reasons. 1) Jesus fundamentally disagreed with their interpretation of scripture. While the religious leaders focused on strict purity codes that separated them from outsiders, Jesus showed that …the heart of scriptures is that people can be forgiven their past sins and must pursue new lives of selfless love towards God and others. (Matthew 5:16-48, 10:1-12; John 8:1-11) 2) Jesus cared for the common people, and he felt that their leaders were very poor leaders indeed. (e.g. Matthew 23) 3) The religious leaders did not believe in Jesus, and they were very jealous of his popularity. They therefore challenged him with difficult questions trying to trap him, and he replied by challenging them. (e.g. Mark 7; Matthew 22:15-46; John 8:12-59) (MORE)

How was the Transfiguration of Jesus a moment of calming and explaining in the midst of confusion among the disciples?
A: Jesus took Peter, James and John up into a high mountain, where his appearance changed, and they saw him talking to two strangers. Somehow, the disciples knew without question that the strangers talking to Jesus were Moses and Elijah. However, the Transfiguration certainly does not seem to have …explained anything that the disciples understood or removed any confusion they might have felt. Read literally, the sole reason for this journey was to let the three disciples see Jesus talking to Moses and Elijah, yet they learnt nothing from the experience and were even instructed to tell no one. In spite of this life-changing event, and its absolute proof that Jesus was the Messiah, Peter went on to deny Jesus. If the Transfiguration ever happened, it must be that he was less sure of who the strangers were than is suggested in the gospel story. Why the disciples even thought the men were Moses and Elijah is not stated. (MORE)
hThe challenge in the birth of Jesus is whether we believe in him or not.

A: The Jesus Seminar is a seminar of theologians that seeks to discover the historical Jesus behind the Gospel account. The first and greatest challenge for conservative Christians is that all or most of the members of the Jesus Seminar are themselves Christians. Far from being sceptics on the one …hand or blind adherents on the other, they are knowledgeable Christians who simply seek what they regard as the truth. Their findings may or may not be closer to the truth, but they do challenge the beliefs of some Christians and some atheists. They conclude, for example, that in the four canonical gospels and the Gospel of Thomas, only about 18 per cent of sayings attributed to Jesus were likely to have been said by Jesus himself. Many conservative Christians would be challenged by this finding, but so also would those atheists who believe that Jesus never existed. An even greater challenge for nearly all Christians is that the Jesus Seminar says the story of the empty tomb is a fiction. Jesus never rose from the dead. (MORE)
Any human being who is able to look into history of the world and realize that we have never see or heard of a 'fully goat' which also 'fully dog'. There is no trace in history of half dog and half goat - this is a make belief fantasy which the pictures of mermaids are made of. Mermaids do not exi…st for real. Therefore it can only be a make belief that a being conceived and born by a woman is both God and Man. If you look into the ABC of disbelief it is the same . The Assyrians, the Babylonians, the Romans, the Greeks and the Egyptians all have their man-made gods and they too believed them too be the real thing. The "C" in the ABC is what we have today a group of people worshiping a fully man and a fully god person. Answer : During the 'reign of man,' many have challenged this truth especially the ruling religious sects at the time of Jesus' physical being on the Earth. The problem seems to stem from our inability to accept things we do not yet understand or our concern of losing our position power/wealth if such a truth is real. The Scriptures say that Jesus was before all things and created all things in John 1:1-4 and other places. Yet, it also says He was the 1st begotten of the Father and became a man among us: John 1:14 New King James Version (NKJV). The Word Becomes Flesh 14 And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we beheld His glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth. Now how could God, a spirit-being become a physical-being? Well the Scripture says nothing is impossible for God (Luke 1:37). Consider the catepillar which begins its life on the ground. When the time is right, it spins a cocoon and through "metamorphism," changes into a beautiful butterfly of the air. So it was with the Word who became flesh - just in reverse order. Another point, Jesus was begotten of His Father in Heaven. The only way we are begotten is via a woman - thus the way Christ became a man. We humans who repent and are baptized are promised to be changed into spiritual sons and daughters of the God Family - begotten by God's Holy Spirit with our Human Spirit while phyical and growing as an embryo grows until the times of our births into spirit. This is all consistent to every word of Scripture regardless of who believes now or doesn't. At the Judgement Process (not a trial), all minds will be opened to these truths and each will have his/her chance to accept and be born again or reject and die the 2nd death. Choice is for the individual alone.. (MORE)

The original moral code, valid for all time, was given on Sinai tothe Jewish people who had just been liberated from Egypt by theLord, this was the Ten Commandments. Subsequent to that, thePharisees had developed "hedge" commandments contained in theTalmud. If you kept all the "hedge" commandments i…t kept you faraway from even thinking about breaking one of the Ten Commandments.Our Blessed Lord came and did two things, 1) he chastised thePharisees for all their ridiculous rules (straining gnats, whileswallowing camels - Matthew 23:24 - gnats were about the smallestof the unclean animals, camels the largest), while ignoring theunderlying principles behind the Commandments. 2) He actuallystrengthened the Ten Commandments, primarily in the Sermon on theMount (St. Matthew's Gospel, chapters 5-7) "You have heard that itwas said to the men of old, 'You shall not kill; and whoever killsshall be liable to judgment.' But I say to you that every one whois angry with his brother shall be liable to judgment; whoeverinsults his brother shall be liable to the council, and whoeversays, 'You fool!' shall be liable to the hell of fire." (Matthew5:21-22) In addition, he does away with the cleanness laws andexpands the concept of brother to include all our fellow men. Thelaws which He did away with were the ceremonial laws which onlyexisted to foreshadow the Messiah; as He was here, He has fulfilledall of them, and they are not only no longer necessary, but it isactually a sin to observe them as you would be saying that you arestill waiting for the Messiah, thus you don't believe that OurBlessed Lord was the Messiah. Thus Our Blessed Lord challenged thepeople to see the underlying principles behind the commandments andto live according to those, and to see God in every other personaround us (our neighbor) - the Jews tried to limit "neighbor" totheir fellow Jews.
