Where in the Bible is the verse Jesus conquered death hell and the grave?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

The spectacular announcement that Jesus Christ had conquered death is found in Luke.

Luke 24:4-8 "And it came to pass, as they were much perplexed thereabout, behold, two men stood by them in shining garments: And as they were afraid, and bowed down their faces to the earth, they said unto them, Why seek ye the living among the dead? He is not here, but is risen: remember how he spake unto you when he was yet in Galilee, Saying, The Son of man must be delivered into the hands of sinful men, and be crucified, and the third day rise again. And they remembered his words,"

The marvelous knowledge that Christ's victory over death extends to his followers is found in Corinthians.

I Corinthians 15:51-57 "Behold, I shew you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed, In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the Trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed. For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality. So when this corruptible shall have put on incorruption, and this mortal shall have put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written, Death is swallowed up in victory. O death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory? The sting of death is sin; and the strength of sin is the law. But thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ."

Why was it necessary for Jesus to die?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

Mankind sinned against God by choosing to disobey His commands (which He gave in order to keep us from harming ourselves and others). The Bible declares the the wages (the payment due) for sin is death. Originally God accepted animal sacrifice as the blood payment, but this was just a shadow of the Sacrifice to come because the blood of animals could never truly cleanse mankind from sin. God in His foreknowledge, knowing that mankind would sin and knowing that because He is Just He would have to punish sin (just like a human judge punishes lawbreakers), had a plan to offer His mercy and grace and forgivess justly by having Someone pay the punishment we deserve. Of course, this Person had to be sinless or else it would have no effect. So God allowed His one and only begotten Son to come into the world, be born of a virgin (God in nature is perfect and He cannot be born of human nature which is passed along human lines, ie sexual reproduction). He lived a sinless life and was sacrificed (killed willingly by the Romans and the Jews at the time). But He not only died for us, but rose from the dead by the power of God the Father, thereby defeating sin, death and the devil. By believing in Him, His shed Blood (death) and resurrection, we can receive the forgiveness of God and Eternal Life!

What it importance does it have for Jesus to call God father?

User Avatar

Asked by Prophet ms Godwor

We need to know God as our heavenly Father, who supplies our every need. Even though we cannot see Him, God is always doing his best so that we can know Him in this regard.

John 1:18 "No man hath seen God at any time; the only begotten Son, which is in the bosom of the Father, he hath declared him."

Besides redeeming mankind, Jesus Christ declared God to us. Jesus made God, whom no man had ever seen, known. Because of his example, we understand Godly qualities from a human perspective.

John 20:29 "Jesus saith unto him, Thomas, because thou hast seen me, thou hast believed: blessed are they that have not seen, and yet have believed." 

Without seeing God, many have believed. Beyond all doubt, Jesus confirmed that God is our Heavenly Father, to whom we can pray and receive powerful answers.

John 15:16 “...whatsoever ye shall ask of the Father in my name, he may give it you.”

Is Jesus related to Shem?

User Avatar

Asked by Rone Ron

There is no direct evidence that Jesus is related to Shem, but some people believe that they may be related indirectly.

Shem was one of the sons of Noah, and Noah is a direct ancestor of Abraham, who is a direct ancestor of Jesus. So, if Shem and Noah are related, then Jesus may be related to Shem indirectly.

However, there is no way to know for sure if this is the case.

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

Per Josephus Wars Book 5 Chapter 4 section 4 (or verse 172 by the newer method), some of the walls were over 52 feet high with towers extending far beyond that. Some of the city had three walls around it, while other parts had only one. The whole of Chapter 4 is given to a very good description of Jerusalem just before the destruction in AD 70.

When referring to Jesus Christ should he be capitalized?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

Some people use initial capitals on all pronouns referring to Jesus or God, as a sign of respect. I have then seen some scholars similarly use initial capitals on all pronouns referring to all gods, in order to demonstrate equal respect.

The King James Bible does not capitalise the pronouns referring to Jesus or God, and I usually follow this precedent.
