But his forte was defending the principles of Christian morality that showed from the Church's constant tradition that Christ's command to baptize did not carry with it the promise of no lapse into sin after baptism, no matter how fervently a convert receives the faith. This paper responds to some of the negative criticisms of liberation theology, arguing that the concept of liberation is central to theology. Christology is the branch of theology dealing with the nature, person, and deeds of Jesus Christ.

Incorporeality —That God is without physical composition. The universe did not create itself; it was created by God (Psa. 100:3). Second, He then went to Paradise and comforted the spirits of saints there, and proclaimed His victory for them. The three divine members share the same nature, but have distinct persons. And He does this through the Bible itself, for “The entrance of thy word gives light,” (Psa. 119:130). 9. Here's an example of what “Alexandrian Christology” looked like in the wild.

First, there is a danger that Gentile Christians in will assume that God has rejected Jews for good. And there is no justification for reading "All things were made through Him." Then other books are mainly prophecy, recording direct messages from God, including accurate predictions of the future. It demonstrates why Jesus is the atoning sacrifice for our sins. There are two major critiques of feminist analysis that deserve consideration before we proceed. In the book of Exodus we see 1he children of Israel called God's son. "22 And you shall say to Pharaoh, Thus says the LORD, ISRAEL IS MY SON, my firstborn. "23 And I say to you, LET MY SON GO, that he may serve me: and if you refuse to let him go, I will slay your son, your firstborn. ..

His equality with them is taught in John 5:18, 10:33, and especially Phil. 2:6.

It was not necessary for Jesus to do this in keeping with the mental categories and patterns provided by Israel’s tradition of sacrificial cult. Liberation theology often portrays Jesus as a political liberator, a role he surely resists. Secondly, Satan and his kingdom exists to ensure that people reap what they sow. I asked Jesus if His Father had a form like Himself. The notion that Jesus is the word is not original with John.

Christ faced the same archetypal choice that confronted Adam, but chose not as Adam had chosen (to grasp equality with God). These last comments show that you are unfortunately indeed close minded to evidence and truth. The key idea of the root behind this word is that of ransoming. God's wrath, which would otherwise fall on us, fell on Him so that none of us would ever have to face it ourselves. "'It was necessary for the awful darkness to gather about His soul because of the withdrawal of the Father's love and favor; for He was standing in the sinner's place, and this darkness every sinner must experience.

Recent magisterial statements have frequently appealed to this text. Second, distinctively philosophical techniques might be brought to bear in helping the theologian clear up imprecise or ambiguous theological claims. Most classical Jewish theological teachings express a negative view of Jesus, often referring to him as ?????? ??????? otoh ha-ish, a derogatory term for “that man.” [14] In effect, Jewish thinkers excommunicated Jesus from the Jewish faith as an apostate who subverted Judaism and as a false messiah. [15] The presentation of Jesus in the Talmud is far from flattering and were it to be read by unsuspecting Christians, it would cause great consternation. [16] In fact, it became customary in some later Jewish writings to spell Jesus’ name not ????????

Jesus and Easter: did God raise the historical Jesus from the dead?. Beginning with 1:23, Matthew shows a clear interest in identifying Jesus as "God with us" and in later developing the Emmanuel characterization of Jesus at key points throughout the rest of his Gospel. [61] The name Emmanuel does not appear elsewhere in the New Testament, but Matthew builds on it in Matthew 28:20 ("I am with you always, even unto the end of the world") to indicate Jesus will be with the faithful to the end of the age. [61] [62] According to Ulrich Luz, the Emmanuel motif brackets the entire Gospel of Matthew between 1:23 and 28:20, appearing explicitly and implicitly in several other passages. [63] The accounts of the crucifixion and subsequent resurrection of Jesus provides a rich background for Christological analysis, from the canonical Gospels to the Pauline Epistles. [64] A central element in the Christology presented in the Acts of the Apostles is the affirmation of the belief that the death of Jesus by crucifixion happened "with the foreknowledge of God, according to a definite plan". [65] In this view, as in Acts 2:23, the cross is not viewed as a scandal, for the crucifixion of Jesus "at the hands of the lawless" is viewed as the fulfilment of the plan of God. [65] [66] Paul's Christology has a specific focus on the death and resurrection of Jesus.

God describes Himself as “the Hidden God” (cf. He fills the whole universe, but does not show Himself in His full manifestation except in Heaven. In the functional category Christ can remain fully human, and supernatural or metaphysical explanations for His mission become unnecessary.
