My goal is that they may be encouraged in heart and united in love, so that they may have the full riches of complete understanding, in order that they may know the mystery of God, namely, Christ, So then, just as you received Christ Jesus as Lord, continue to live your lives in him, 7 rooted and built up in him, strengthened in the faith as you were taught, and overflowing with thankfulness .9 For in Christ all the fullness of the Deity lives in bodily form, 13 When you were dead in your sins and in the uncircumcision of your flesh, God made you[d] alive with Christ. He forgave us all our sins, 14 having canceled the charge of our legal indebtedness, which stood against us and condemned us; he has taken it away, nailing it to the cross. 15 And having disarmed the powers and authorities, he made a public spectacle of them, triumphing over them by the cross.[e] and in Christ you have been brought to fullness. He is the head over every power and authority. 11 In him you were also circumcised with a circumcision not performed by human hands. Your whole self ruled by the flesh[b] was put off when you were circumcised by[c] Christ, 12 having been buried with him in baptism, in which you were also raised with him through your faith in the working of God, who raised him from the dead. 8 See to it that no one takes you captive through hollow and deceptive philosophy, which depends on human tradition and the elemental spiritual forces[a] of this world rather than on Christ. 20 Since you died with Christ to the elemental spiritual forces of this world, why, as though you still belonged to the world, do you submit to its rules: 21 “Do not handle! Do not taste! Do not touch!”?22 These rules, which have to do with things that are all destined to perish with use, are based on merely human commands and teachings. 23 Such regulations indeed have an appearance of wisdom, with their self-imposed worship, their false humility and their harsh treatment of the body, but they lack any
THE RESURRECTION OF JESUS CHRIST
Who did Jesus Christ die on the cross for? Jesus died for all of us. If it was not for JESUS we would not be here today, because GOD made us all. The importance of the resurrection is to believe in Jesus Christ. Believing that Jesus died on the cross for our sins will get you into heaven and if you asked him to come into your heart. Jesus is so important because I believe he died on the cross for my sins, I celebrate him on Easter and Christmas, and I….
Jesus Christ was born circa 6 B.C. in Bethlehem. Little is known about his early life, but as a young man, he founded Christianity, one of the world’s most influential religions. His life is recorded in the New Testament, more a theological document than a biography. According to Christians, Jesus is considered the incarnation of God and his teachings an example for living a more spiritual life. Christians believe he died for the sins of all people and rose from the dead.
Jesus loves you. He died on the cross to save you from your sins. No matter how much you mess up, He will still be there to protect you. He is a unfailing God that will never leave you or forsake you. People ask:
Who is Jesus Christ? Jesus Christ is the only son of god despite coming from a woman. He is the light that came to earth to clarify our path and our soul. He is a man that walked to earth all the way from Israel.

4. What are some specific intellectual reasons people may reject the Christian gospel?
People may reject the Christian gospel, for intellectual reasons, because they cannot comprehend that Jesus Christ was God in human flesh. They cannot comprehend that Jesus Christ could die and then be resurrected, because, in their minds, this defies logic and reason.
5. What can Christians do to address these objections and better communicate the Christian gospel?

The revelation of God's love in Jesus Christ is the center of our faith. Incarnating both the fullness of God and the fullness of humanity, Jesus Christ initiates a new creation, a world unified in relationship as God originally intended. We believe that Jesus Christ makes real God's will for a life of loving community with God, with the whole human family and with all creation. Through Jesus Christ, Christians believe God offers reconciliation to all. "In Christ God was reconciling the world to….
Gospel of Jesus Christ
To make atonement means to avert punishment especially divine anger, by the payment of a ransom, which may be money or which may be of life. Throughout the OT sin is serious; it was punished unless atonement was sought in the way God had provided.
It means “a making at one”, and points to a process of bringing those who are estranged into a unity. Its use in the Bible to denote the work of Christ in dealing with the problem posed by the sin of….
The Resurrection of Jesus Christ
No other event in history has been the object of as much scrutiny and
criticism as the resurrection of Jesus Christ. The resurrection of Christ is
the basis upon which all Christianity stands. If the resurrection never
happened, then there would be no Christianity, as the Apostle Paul says in 1
Corinthians 15:14, "And if Christ has not been raised, our preaching is useless
and so is your faith." This is why opponents of the Christian faith have tried
JOURNAL ARTICLE CRITIQUE
“The Resurrection of Christ: Theological Implications”
In the following paragraphs, I will analyze and critique the article “The Resurrection of Christ: Theological Implications” by Daniel B. Wallace. Wallace’s main purpose in writing this article is to stress importance of the Resurrection of Christ and its impact on the Christian faith. Wallace is theologically sound in supporting his views and held a bit of humor to his arguments.
Wallace starts off….
and the purpose of these showing the deity of Jesus Christ. Of the 34 miracles recorded in the Gospel’s, John only places eight of these in the book of John. This is where John strives to show the deity of Christ and not himself. With all hopes everyone will understand this better. The definition of miracle can be construed as wonderful. As Reg Quirk says “indeed in whom there is no deceit” ( (Quirk 2008). Here he is speaking of Jesus Christ, John furthers this by his writings.
The Life of Jesus Christ
The birth of Jesus Christ to the Virgin Mary is said to have happened in a humble stable in Bethlehem, which is of some controversy. There is belief that the Christian Monks miscalculated the actual time and date that Jesus was born. It has been stated that Jesus, born in Bethlehem as told in the Old Testament, could have been born in or near Nazareth in the town of Galilee. With that, some scholars have dated Jesus’ lineage back as far as Adam, the son of God….
