Some people have missed the real message. Too many religions focus on Jesus's death (by having the cross on their church) rather than his life, parables, lessons, and Resurrection. To remind us that God loved us enough to send his only Son who was willing to suffer and die on our behalf in reparation from sin. He died for us whilst we were still sinners. Greater love has no man than that he lay down his life for his friends. Christianity like most religions professes the "End of the World". See the Related Link for "Eschatology" to the right for more information. Paul, in 1 Corinthians 2:2, makes a rather interesting comment. Previously in the letter he had noted that the church at Corinth had been debating about the teachings of which famous speaker, including Paul and Jesus, a particular faction chose to follow. Paul told them they were acting like children, not deserving of the deeper teachings they sought after. The verse reads, "among you I claim to know nothing except Jesus Christ, and Him crucified." He had to get everybody back on the same page before he could think of starting to teach them anything deeper. What's curious is that he points to Christ's crucifixion, not His resurrection. The crucifixion is the sacrifice that ended the separation between man and God. Jesus was a man not born under the curse of sin; He was the only one who didn't deserve to die for His sins, since He did not sin. His death was a substutionary atonement for the sins of everyone else; He took your place and mine at the execution. His death is what frees us. That's not to say that the resurrection isn't important. His resurrection shows that He has conquered death once and for all, and that the prison of eternal separation from God need not be our only fate. His ascension allowed the Holy Spirit to come to abide within everyone who would accept Him. It also provides a promise of His return one day. None of that, though, would be possible without His sacrifice on the cross.

Which Gospels include the Last Supper?

The Last Supper was the Passover feast and appears in the Synoptic gospels, Matthew, Mark and Luke, because Passover occurred on the Thursday before the crucifixion. In John's Gospel, the Passover was on the Friday of the crucifixion, so there is no Last Supper recorded, instead Jesus washed the feet of the disciples.

What are the arguments for the resurrection of Jesus?

1) He Himself predicted He would die and resurrect. 22And while they abode in Galilee, Jesus said unto them, The Son of man shall be betrayed into the hands of men: 23And they shall kill him, and the third day he shall be raised again. And they were exceeding sorry. Matthew 17:22,23 (KJV) 2) Post crucifixion He was seen of all His disciples. More than one left written accounts of their post-crucifixion interactions with Him. Additionally, He was seen of a large crowd of people. 3) In nearly 2000 years, no one has been able to find the body, not that they haven't tried. 4) The shroud of Turin, while not conclusive in itself, is a remarkable forensic object that in no way detracts from the Biblical resurrection account. 5) Most all of His closest adherents died for their profession of belief in Him, including their belief in His resurrection. It's difficult (albeit not impossible) to believe that so many people, when given a chance to recant and live, would choose instead to die... for a lie.

How do you insert a pause with a phone number on a lg 500g tracfone. my old phone had this feature which was great because i didnt have to dial all the additional extensions.?

When entering or editing a number in a contract entry, press and hold * until it becomes HIGHLIGHTED. Then *VERY* quickly - before it becomes un-highlighted - press * again - it will then become a highlighted "+" (not an implemented code), then press "*" again while the "+" is highlighted and it will become a highlighted "P" (for pause)... if you want a wait instead, press * again *while the "P" is still highlighted" and it will become a "W". Then proceed with entering the rest of your numbers (note that ST supports the use of * and # in strings following P or W). If you use the W(ait), note that when you call the number and the phone has finished dialing it you will see "Send" in the lower right of the screen... you will need to press the "-" key (above the "PWR/END" key) to have the phone transmit the remaining numbers.

What does RIP on Jesus crucifixion mean?

R.I.P. stands for Requiescat in Pace (which is Latin for Rest in Peace), it was NOT at Our Blessed Lord's crucifixion. Instead Pontius Pilate had the Latin "Iesus Nazarenus Rex Iudaeorum" (there is no "J" in Latin) put on Jesus's cross. It translates as Jesus of Nazareth, King of the Jews, and has been abbreviated I.N.R.I. on Crucifixes since the thirteenth century.

Does God have a physical body and i am not talking about Jesus?

As traditionally portrayed by the Christian religion, good is omnipresent and infinite. He is thus everywhere at all times. He does not "have" a body in the sense that he exists only inside one body. Instead, he is fully part of every body and every thing everywhere.
