There is one God who has revealed himself in three persons. The vast majority of Christians across all major sects agree that Jesus is both the Son of God and God. This has been articulated many mays, but is not easy to explain in the confines of language. He is not the "son" as is a physical offspring as the result of sexual relations, but in another ...

My first posting as an answer. (Pardon my english mistakes if any) The short answer is obviously 3 (except the Mary's part). Let's think about the Wine Miracle where water turns into wine to get some idea of characteristics of an miracle. The wine is obviously really wine although we don't know whether it is zinfandel or cabernet souvignon nor the age of ...

How many Gods do we have? One and only one! How many persons are there in God? Three and only three! Who are them? Father, Son and Holy Spirit. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit (Matthew 28:19, NIV) Do we worship them separately? NO! Because they are ONE. ...

Jesus' death was sufficient simply because DEATH is the punishment for our sins, not suffering. Nowhere in the Bible does it say that the Savior must suffer for a long time to cover our sins, only His death. If you look at all these verses, we'll see that "Christ died" and it is enough: ...

You're making the mistake of an argument from silence, because in spite of your assertion that "its clear" that Peter, James, and John witnessed more of Jesus' miracles, all we really know for sure is that we have records that Peter, James, and John are reported to have witnessed more miracles than the other disciples. The fact that the other followers of ...

If you set up that kind of a false dichotomy -- that the disciples left Jesus at the end, and thus they were not believers here -- then none of the teachings of Jesus were given to believers. In the mind of Jesus, the disciples were believers in training. These were those which he had personally selected and through whom he was going to build and establish ...

Question 1: Are humans somehow above Angels? Psalm 8 is very clear - Man is lower than Angel. 4 what is mankind that you are mindful of them, human beings that you care for them? 5 You have made them a little lower than the angels and crowned them with glory and honor. Philippians 2 is clear that this debasement was part of God's plan: ...

Jesus didn't want Mary (and others) touching him as they had before the crucifixion, because he would no longer be with them as he had been. John Chrysostom explains this in his Homilies on the Gospel of St. John. [emphasis mine] Some assert, that she asked for spiritual grace, because she had heard Him when with the disciples say, “If I go to the ...

Loads! Eg John 9:1-12: As he [Jesus] went along, he saw a man blind from birth. His disciples asked him, ‘Rabbi, who sinned, this man or his parents, that he was born blind?’ ‘Neither this man nor his parents sinned,’ said Jesus, ‘but this happened so that the works of God might be displayed in him. As long as it is day, we must do the works of him ...

Divine Conception The answer to your question is relatively simple. Mary provided the egg; God provided the sperm. This may sound shocking, and there is no single verse which "proves" my assertion, but there are many scriptures--particularly Romans chapter 5--which clearly lay out for us the reason why Christ was conceived and born with a sinless human ...

In addition to the other excellent answers given here, Jesus gives a reason for His prayers in John 11: John 11:41b-42 “Father, I thank You that You heard Me. I know that You always hear Me, but because of the crowd standing here I said this, so they may believe You sent Me.” He said this as a prayer, after calling Lazarus out from the tomb. There was ...

Your question assumes that Jesus the man was one singular identity in a human body. This seems to be in error according to what I can determine from the Bible. Jesus was fully human, and by that we must deduce that he had the same DNA as any other human being,that is 50% human female and 50% human male The 50% human female would have come from the egg ...

You are misreading those Scriptures, they are not all prophesies which were to be fulfilled during Jesus lifetime or even during the Church age. All Scripture is quoted from the King James translation, unless otherwise noted. Isaiah 52:13 through 15 Behold, my servant shall deal prudently, he shall be exalted and extolled, and be very high. As many ...

In the 15th year of Tiberius (Aug. 28AD to Aug. 29AD), John the Baptist began his public ministry (summer of 28AD). At that time Jesus was "about thirty years old", which statement would be precisely true if Jesus were born in 3BC. (Luke 3:23) a. The gospel of John records three Passovers during Jesus' ministry. The first when Jesus was 30½ years old (John ...
