First of all, Catholics are a denomination of the Christian religion, thus they are not their own "religion." Jesus is extremely significant to the Christian religion. Christians believe God promised the early Jews to send His son to save man from sin. The early Jews had to sacrifice animals to clea…nse them of their sins, but Jesus was to be the ultimate sacrifice, and through Him everyone could be saved and everyone could be reinstated to be within a "state of grace" with God, which was lost with the first sin committed by Eve (when she disobeyed God's word and ate the forbiddeden Fruit. Jesus is the base of catechism, though no one knows if he meant to make a whole new religion, or just improve his own. Answer Jesus sent by the Father started the Catholic Church. The Father sent the Son to make it possible for us to obtain eternal life with him. ( Full Answer )
This is one of the few events recorded in all four Gospels in direct fulfilment of Psalm 22:18: . 18They part my garments among them, and cast lots upon my vesture.. It was remarked on by the writers since normally such a garment would have been divided into pieces according to the number of sold…iers performing the execution. The fact that it was seamless would have made this difficult without destroying the garment, hence the decision to cast lots for it. . ( Full Answer )

Jeasus's death had many significances to the Christians. First of all, They believe that it took away all of their sins for doing certain things ( but they could still accumulate new ones). Also the Romans who killed him blamed the Jews for it, which caused much antisemitism.
The resurrection is the most significant and important event in the entire Christian Faith. Without the resurrection, our faith is empty. "If Christ is not risen, then our preaching is empty and your faith is also empty." (1Corinthians 15:14). This is because the resurrection is what brings us salva…tion. It is Christ's resurrection that conquers death and cleanses us of our sins. The Bible tells us "if Christ is not risen, your faith is futile; you are still in your sins!" (1Corinthians 15:17).

His resurrection meant that the death no longer had dominance over him. It meant that he had defeated the grave.

Answer :. Several things are important about the manner in which Jesus socialised:. 1) He spoke to woman whom He did not know in public (John 4) which was unacceptable; even the woman was surprised.. 2) He spoke to Samaritans (John 4), who were considered, by Jews, to be unfaithful to the Covena…nt and almost heretical. Orthodox Jews would never speak to a Samaritan, and even walk around their territory if going from Judea to Galilea.. 3) Jesus conversed with pagans, and even praised them (Matthew 6:6-13) (Matthew 15:22-28). 4) He touched the bier of a dead young man (Luke 7:11) making Him ritually unclean.. 5) Jesus allowed a prostitute to touch him in the house of a Pharisee (7:36) scandalising his respectable host.. 6) Instead of just healing people, Jesus touched those considered to be unclean: the man with the skin disease (Matthew 8), the blind man (Mark 8:22. 7) He ate with people considered to be sinners, and thus unable to enter the Temple (Luke 5:29). Remember that, at the time of Jesus, many people believed that sickness was a punishment for some sin that had been committed. 'Respectable' folk did not associate with such people. ( Full Answer )

The significance of Jesus' baptism is that it showed themanifestation of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit together. It wasthe beginning of his ministry and it showed that he was theMessiah.
No. Jesus made it clear He did not come to add to the existingJewish religious system He came as a mediator of a 'new and livingway' through which people can be reconciled to God Mat 9:16,17 No one puts a piece of unshrunk cloth on an oldgarment; for the patch pulls away from the garment, and the t…ear ismade worse. Nor do they put new wine into old wineskins, or elsethe wineskins break, the wine is spilled, and the wineskins areruined. But they put new wine into new wineskins, and both arepreserved." Heb 10:19,20 Therefore, brethren, having boldness to enter theHoliest by the blood of Jesus, by a new and living way which Heconsecrated for us, through the veil, that is, His flesh, A Christian is a new creation and does not have to become a Jew.

Is it true that the significant lunar and solar eclipses correlate with significant moments in Jewish history?
No, I don't think so. Maybe what you are referring to is that every 28 years, when the sun goes back into it's position during creation, and it is the day before Pesach (Passover), there have been significant events in our history when they correspond.
Jesus' most challenging moments came during His forty days in the wilderness when He was tempted in various ways by the Devil, and also in the Garden of Gesthemane prior to his arrest, suffering, and death.
The crucifixion actually should be written as "CRUCI-FICTION" There is no mean of this Drama written by Paul, A god born to a human is called as son of God, and he was killed for Human's sins is a Bedtime story and there is nothing truth in this story, God is all wise all knowing and he depends on n…othing!

Quran calls Christians and Jews as "People of the Book" God has clarified the Truth about Jesus's mystery in his last revelation the Quran Quran 4:171 says "O People of the Book(Jews and Christians)!

The belief that Jesus Christ died and rose again after three days is fundamental to the Christian faith. If Jesus died and that was it, He would just be another prophet. But the fact that He rose from the dead proves His power as the Son of God. I was told that, back then (I don't know if this is… still true), the Jews believed that on the third day of death, the spirit left the body. The fact that Jesus rose on the third day was, in that aspect, something that was considered impossible (I find it amazing how God specializes in doing the "impossible"). Since He rose from the dead and ascended to the right hand of the throne of God, He has the power to intercede on our behalf; thus Jesus' statement "I am the Way, the Truth, and the Life. No one can come to the Father except through me." Also, this is another event which proves that He is the "Living God". Christianity, if I remember correctly, is the only religions whose Deity is alive and active in everyday life (miracles, answering prayers, etc.). ( Full Answer )
He socialised with the publicans, harlots, and sinners, rather than with the righteous scribes and pharisees.
A nameless woman who we now call Veronica wiped the face of Jesus on his way to Calvary. She showed compassion to Our Lord where there was none. She also did so at risk to herself as the Pharisees could have her thrown out of the synagogue.
Well there wasn't really any beliefs but there were some ANSWER: For one thing we (Christians) know that God the Father accepted Jesus' death as the sacrifice for man's sin by resurrecting Him.

Jesus is the Son of God. That he came to earth as a man is in itself, significant. Also, there were many prophesies about Jesus' coming in the Old Testament, so the Jews of the time were on lookout for someone like Jesus. He is promised to be their Savior and to save them from their sin. This promis…e still holds today, thus his birth is a special occasion. ( Full Answer )
The fact that Luke's Gospel protrays Jesus as born in a stable is indirectly significant. More than any other gospel, it focuses on the poor in society. By portraying Jesus as being born in the poorest circumstances and by having poor shepherds come to worship the baby Jesus, this gospel attracts an… audience of the poor. Even today, congregations are in awe that their saviour was born in a stable. In contrast, Matthew's Gospel portrays Bethlehem as the home town of Jesus, so there is no mention of a stable or a manger. Instead of poor shepherds, wise men come to visit Jesus in the house where he was probably born, and give him expensive gifts. ( Full Answer )
Of course the first thing about it is that it was thefirst public miracle that he performed. Though not many people knewabout it when it happened, about half of what would be his 12disciples were there to witness it. . In doing it, he was honoring his mother. Even though he toldher, "My time has …not yet come," and though he was an adult (andthe son of God) and didn't have to do it, he showed an example ofobedience. . He saved the best until last. The new wine given on the Day ofPentecost (Acts 2:13; Ephesians 5:18) was the Bridegroom giving usthe new and "better" covenant (Hebrews 8:5,6). . The significance of the act of turning water into wine is ananti-type of when God, through Moses, turned water to blood inExodus 7:9-19. [This is also a foreshadow of wine representingChrists blood (Matthew 26:28, Mark 14:24, Luke 22:20)]. The turning of water to blood... . initiated Moses leading his people out of the bondage of Egyptinto an earthly liberty; the turning of water into wine initiatedJesus taking His people out of the bondage of the corruption of theworld into the glorious liberty of the children of God (Romans8:21). . culminated in the firstborn in Egypt being delivered to death,while turning the water into wine culminated in the life of theFirstborn being delivered from death (Colossians 1:18). . caused all of the fish in the river to die. When Jesusinitiated the new covenant, the catch of the fish (men) are madealive in the net of the kingdom of God (Matthew 4:19). . was symbolic of death for Egypt, but the water into wine issymbolic of life for the world. (2 Corinthians 3:6). ( Full Answer )
The similarity between the Jesus of the gospels and Moses in the Old Testament comes about because the gospel authors, most notably the author of Matthew, wrote accounts that emphasised the similarity. They clearly believed that if Jesus could be shown to be similar to Moses then that would confirm …his greatness. Some of the evangelists missed opportunities, or did not feel that comparisons between Jesus and Moses were so significant. Whereas Matthew says that the father of Joseph was called Jacob, just as in the Old Testament, Luke says that Joseph's father was called Heli. Raymond E. Brown ( An Introduction to the New Testament ) says there is little likelihood that either is strictly historical, but Matthew is able to use this small point to create a parallel with Moses. The entire nativity story of Matthew goes on to draw a parallel between Jesus and Moses. John Shelby Spong ( Born of a Woman: A Bishop Rethinks the Birth of Jesus ) says that Matthew was clearly writing Christian midrash. The significance is that, even today, there are some who look for this evidence and stare in wonder when they see the gospels describing Jesus in these terms. The evangelists were right to believe that similarities between Jesus and Moses would always be highly regarded. ( Full Answer )
Annas was questioning Jesus about His teaching. He knew that Annas was really just trying to trip Him up and get Him to say something they could use against Him. That's why Jesus told him to go and ask the people that heard Him teach, as He taught in the synagogue and in the open.
Christianity is totally about following after Jesus. Hisfollowers were called Christians after Him, as He was known asJesus Christ. ________________________________________ The significance of Jesus in Christianity is Jesus. Without JesusChrist Christianity would not exist today. The early church wa…s notknown as Christianity or even Christians, they called themselves"The Way". Answer: The significance of Jesus is that Christian belief is based on thedeath, burial and ressurection of Jesus. Without Jesus Christ therewould be no Christianity. Jesus died as a sacrifice for sin and hisdeath satisfied the demands of God's righteousness. As for thedevelopment of Christianity I think Christianity didn't developethe beliefs of Christianity have always been the same but man hasadded tradition and religion has developed. . Another View: . The Father sent Jesus to introduce Him to mankind, who up tothis point had never known of Him - many do not understand that itis Jesus as the God of the Old Testament (1 Corinthians 10:4,etals). Jesus introduced the Kingdom of God and established theChurch of God (noted a dozen times in NT) for the development andtraining of the 'firstfruits' of God in their lifetimes. Jesus'filled the law' to the brim - not discontinuing it as many teach(see Matthew 5:16-18). Jesus introduced the New Testament era andby His sacrifice for all mankind, became our propitiation of allsin. Now, by sorrowful repentance and baptism, we may be washedclean of sin and dedicate our lives to following Christ with HisSpirit in us (see Galatians 2:20-21) and we in Him (see Acts2:38-41). This will be open to all during the Millennial Rule ofChrist. ( Full Answer )

If the death of Jesus was at all significant, we could expect there to have been some correspondence or other record kept. No contemporary correspondence or record has ever been found, and it is unlikely that the Romans felt that the death of Jesus was of any importance to them.
Jesus is significant because He is God's son, He came down to Earth to live among the people He and His Father had created. He came down to Earth because humans (me and you, and everyone in the whole world) were sinners and needed to be saved from our sin. The punishment for our sin was death, and J…esus loved us so much that He took our punishment upon Himself, and was crucified for our sins. He rose again on the third day after His death and is now seated at the right hand of God. Now we have a free gift of salvation from Hell if we believe that Jesus died, was tortured, and rose again to save us( and that you can't save yourself), we can live in heaven with Him.

Christians understand that Jesus died on the cross so he could save us from sin and evil. It also says in the Scriptures, (The Bible) "For God loved the world so much that he gave his only son so whoever believes in him will not perish but will have eternal life." John 3:16 Christians al…so understand that Jesus went through pain, suffering and persecution. He got spat on, disowned by his own disciples, beaten and ridiculed by the public who weren't Christians. In the event called "The Last Supper" he foretold that he would be betrayed by one of his own disciples and he would die on the crucifix and arise from the dead 3 days later. When Pilate sentenced Jesus to Death on the cross. They then made him carry the large crucifix to to Calvary. Then he was nailed to the cross and spat on. The Roman soldiers then took off Jesus' clothes and drew lots between the soldiers. After he died up the soldiers took him down and pierced him from the side with their spears. They then put him in a tomb and put a large boulder to prevent anyone from stealing the body. When Mary Magdalene came to prepare Jesus' body for burial she found that the stone had been rolled away and the Roman soldiers were gone. She then ran to call the other disciples. They all came inside the tomb, there was a angel sitting down holding what looked like Jesus' robe. He asked them, "Who are you looking for?" They replied, "Jesus the Nazarene" The angel then told them that he has arisen to heaven. The Christians see this as a miracle and a sign of forgiveness by God. Till this day Christians wear crucifixes on their neck to show that they are a Christian. That is why Jesus' crucifixion is significant to Christianity ( Full Answer )
Its significant because Its God coming to earth in the form of a man and dieing for our sins so we don't have sacrifice for them anymore and he also split the rift between us and God so we can talk directly to him not through anyone else like a priest. It also shows Gods divine love for us because h…e sent his one and only son to die for our sins on the cross so we could be with him in heaven. also Throughout Biblical history the way for man to restored his broken relationship with God is through a blood sacrifice. People sacrificed an animal to show they were sorry for breaking their relationship with God. But when the time was right God sent His son to be the saviour of mankind. Gal 4:4 But when the right time finally came, God sent his own Son. He came as the son of a human mother and lived under the Jewish Law, God sent his son to die as a sacrifice to restore people into a right relationship with Him Rom 3:25 God offered him, so that by his blood he should become the means by which people's sins are forgiven through their faith in him....... Jesus died on a cross, so the symbol of a cross has importance to a christian in that it reminds us that ......God loved the world so much that he gave his only Son, so that everyone who believes in him may not die but have eternal life. .John 3:16 ( Full Answer )
One main reason was because that made him a martyr, which is a person who dies to defend their religious beliefs.
A: The visit of the magi ("wise men") can only be found in Matthew's Gospel and, according to John Shelby Spong ( Born of a Woman: A Bishop Rethinks the Birth of Jesus ), the universal assumption among people in New Testament circles is that they were not actual people - Matthew was writing Christ…ian midrash. The magi were important to Matthew's account, as they enabled him to explain the flight to Egypt and thus allow him to draw parallels between Moses and Jesus. They were also significant as the magi were priests of the Zoroastrian religion of the Persians, who believed that the Saoshyant would be born of a virgin and help defeat evil in this world. Matthew knew that his readers, being familiar with Zoroastrianism, would draw a parallel here, and he showed that the priests of this great religion came to worship Jesus. ( Full Answer )
The cross is of no significance only as an instrument of prolonged torture to the victim.
Steinbeck presents Curley as violent and powerful and Lennie as fearful through his descriptions of their physical movements. He describes Curley as "balanced and poised" as well as using verbs such as "slashed", "smashed" and "slugged", the repetition of the sibilance of the harsh "s" sound creatin…g a notion of violence. This is juxtaposed with the adverbs used to describe Lennie looking "blankly" and "helplessly". The words express Lennie's confusion and perceived powerlessness in reaction to the onslaught. There is an irony to the fact that Lennie is clearly the more powerful man, yet it is he who is fearful since he is unaware of the extent of his strength. This is significant since it is this misunderstanding of his strength that will eventually lead to Lennie's downfall. Throughout the novel Steinbeck utilises motif of hands, thus making it significant that Curley's hand is crushed. Hands in this novel represent the usefulness and skill of a character in this migrant, working class society where a man's physical strength and stature represents theirplace in the hierarchy of power. Candy is presented by Steinbeck to have only one hand, representing how he is losing his use as he loses his physical strength with age, whilstSlim's "hands were large and lean", portraying his power and respect among the others. Although Lennie crushes Candy's hand by accident, this act emasculates him. The fact that "Curley was white and shrunken" at the hands of Lennie, "his fist lost in Lennie's paw" suggests not only the difference in size and power between the two men but also the fact that Lennie has the power to turn the once proud and posturing Curley into a pathetic and "shrunken" figure with one effortless movement of a hand. This again represents Lennie's ignorance to the power and strength he has just displayed and is therefore an early sign of the devastating, uncontrolled power that will inadvertently lead to his own demise Steinbeck successfully makes this scene powerful and dramatic through his vivid description of Curley's violence which is set against both the idyllic calm of the previous scene where the George describes the dream farm. This contrast is reinforced through Lennie's confused reluctance to fight until eventually George's intervention leads to his emasculation of Curley. The significance of the act is tragically apparent since it is the same hands or "paws" that eventually leave Curley's wife "flopping like a fish", an act that will lead to the destruction of Lennie's dream and ultimately cost him his life.

The significance is that he loved us so much that he died for our sins so that we should not be punished for them and go to hell, (John 3.16).
To prove that he was really the massiah. That what he had spoken had indeed come true. His ressurrection.
Jesus manifested as man is the single most monumental event of human history. Before Jesus defeated Satan on the cross, every human ever born would be destined for hell, no exceptions. We were all hell-bound but for Christ's sacrifice for our sins. He led a completely sinless life, yet He died a hor…rible death in our place. It really boggles the mind. We didn't deserve it, and most people are not even grateful, and still He loves us and wants us to be saved. I think that's pretty significant. ( Full Answer )
The Bible is fundamental in understanding who Jesus is, as his teachings and life are written about by those who lived alongside him in at least 4 "books" and all the background for us to understand why he did what he did and where he did it, is in the rest of the Bible.
The word is, "Christianity". This is taken from the title,"Christ". As it turns out, Jesus was Christ, hence we call Him,"Jesus Christ". The reason Jesus is a significant figure inChristianity is that it was named after Him.
