      This book demonstrates that the author has thought carefully about the issues involved. The book is inspiring, deep and gives much food for thought. I have a fresh appreciation and understanding for a number of Jesus's parables after reading this book.5/5(6). Once the printing press was invented, the most commonly printed book was the Bible, but this still did not make Bible-reading a Catholic’s common practice.

According to Jesus, when Moses said, “Do not murder,” he didn’t only mean, “Try to make it through the day without killing anyone,” but he also meant, “Don’t devalue others by thinking yourself superior to them or harboring anger toward them.” For Jesus, devaluing others is akin to.

Written by the same author and for the same purpose, both were addressed to a Christian named Theophilus and were designed for the purpose of presenting to him a complete and well authenticated narrative of the early history of the Christian movement.

Jesus is called by many names in Scripture—King of Kings, Lord of Lords, Prince of Peace, Savior, Emmanuel, Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God—and these are just a few.

The Meaning of Jesus: Two Visions is a dialogue between two New Testament scholars, Marcus Borg and N.T. Wright. The book focuses primarily, though not exclusively, on the historical figure of Jesus.

The authors irenically articulate and defend their respective accounts of who Jesus was, what he did, how he understood himself, how he was born, why he died, what became of him after his death. We quote Hebrews often, that Jesus was tempted in every way but without sin.

What follows are two steps and three questions to help you find Jesus in an Old Testament passage. “Jesus was the only one who could offer such an infinite atonement, since He was born of a mortal mother and an immortal Father.

Because of that unique birthright, Jesus was an infinite Being” (Russell M. Nelson, “The Atonement,” Ensign, Nov. 35). Invite one or more students to explain to the class how a person could use Alma   Jesus is widely considered the greatest teacher of all time.

But we will only understand him in this capacity if we consider setting and context. Jesus was not a college lecturer or a mystical philosopher.
