Who Was Jesus, the Man? By Heather Whipps | April 10, 2009 05:03am ET livescience.com
“..whether Christian or non-Christian,” said Marcus Borg, a retired professor of religion and culture at Oregon State University and current fellow of the Jesus Seminar, a group of preeminent academics that debate the factuality of Jesus’ life as portrayed in the Bible.

The following “facts” about Jesus would be affirmed by most history scholars, Borg said:..”

“..16 Jesus was well-known as “Teacher.” (John 1:38; 13:13) What did he teach? Primarily, his message was “the good news of the Kingdom”​—that is, God’s Kingdom, the heavenly government that will rule over the entire earth and will bring endless blessings to obedient humans. (Matthew 4:23) Whose message was this? Jesus himself said: “What I teach is not mine, but belongs to him who sent me,” namely, Jehovah. (John 7:16) Jesus knew that his Father wants humans to hear about the good news of the Kingdom. In Chapter 8, we will learn more about God’s Kingdom and what it will accomplish…”

Who is Jesus Christ? gotquestions.org
“Answer: Unlike the question “Does God exist?” very few people question whether Jesus Christ existed. It is generally accepted that Jesus was truly a man who walked on the earth in Israel 2000 years ago. The debate begins when the subject of Jesus’ full identity is discussed. Almost every major religion teaches that Jesus was a prophet or a good teacher or a godly man. The problem is that the Bible tells us that Jesus was infinitely more than a prophet, a good teacher, or a godly man….”

Who was Jesus?

Son of Man

What does it mean that Jesus is the Son of Man? gotquestions.org
“… Jesus is referred to as the “Son of Man” 88 times in the New Testament. A first meaning of the phrase “Son of Man” is as a reference to the prophecy of Daniel 7:13-14, “In my vision at night I looked, and there before me was one like a son of man, coming with the clouds of heaven. He approached the Ancient of Days and was led into his presence. He was given authority, glory and sovereign power; all peoples, nations and men of every language worshiped him. …. The Jews of that era would have been intimately familiar with the phrase and to whom it referred. Jesus was proclaiming Himself as the Messiah.

A second meaning of the phrase “Son of Man” is that Jesus was truly a human being. God called the prophet Ezekiel “son of man” 93 times. God was simply calling Ezekiel a human being. A son of a man is a man. Jesus was fully God (John 1:1), but He was also a human being (John 1:14)…..Yes, Jesus was also the Son of Man—He was in His essence a human being. In summary, the phrase “Son of Man” indicates that Jesus is the Messiah and that He is truly a human being…”

Religion: What is Christianity?

Is it a religion?

Religion is a “man-made” institutions like school, government, etc.. Anything “made” by man is “not” perfect, which we will always find something “wrong” in it. Thus, there is corruption (e.g. violence, abuse, etc..) in schools, government, etc.. We then shouldn’t give our 100% trust and total dependence on any of these institutions. Who can we trust then?

Is it violent?

Religion has caused many wars. Jesus taught..

“””Put your sword back in its place,” Jesus said to him, “for all who draw the sword will die by the sword.”Matthew 26:52

Then why there are “so-called” (e.g. KKK-Protestant “racist” group, Catholic Crusaders, etc..) Christians go against Jesus’ teachings. Isn’t it hypocritical?

Triune God/Trinity

Theology Q&A – God
Dr. J. Rodman Williams 3. God – the Holy Trinity cbn.com
“..Let me give you two verses-and there are many others-that validate Christian belief in the Trinity. First, there are Jesus’ own words in Matthew 28:19: “Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit.” Second, there are Paul’s words in 2 Corinthians 13:14: “The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit, be with you all.” Incidentally, the Catholic Church did not start the doctrine of the Trinity…”
There is Only One True God By: Dr. John Weldon jashow.org
‘…..The biblical doctrine of the Trinity is vital to understand because it concerns who God is, which is essential for having a proper realization of the nature of God as Father, Son and Holy Spirit. To understand the Trinity is to understand God as He has revealed Himself to be. To misunderstand the Trinity is to fail to understand who God is. ..”
Don Stewart :: What Are Some Common Misconceptions about the Trinity? blueletterbible.org
“…
Summary

There are a number of misconceptions that must be cleared up when considering the doctrine of the Trinity. The following points need to be made. The Trinity is not a pagan idea. It is based upon what the Bible has to say about the nature of God. There is no credible evidence that the Trinity was borrowed from any pagan belief. The Trinity doctrine is difficult for humans to comprehend but not impossible. The mystery of the Trinity means it is a truth that was formerly secret that God has now revealed to humanity. The Trinity doctrine is not contrary to reason. Reason, however, should not be the ultimate test as to what is true and what is false. The doctrine of the Trinity does not destroy the oneness of God. Much confusion surrounds the word person with reference to the Trinity. The three members of the Trinity are persons in the sense of distinct personalities not separate individuals. The Trinity is not formally or explicitly taught in Scripture. The church did not invent the doctrine of the Trinity. The church only recognized what the Bible taught on the subject. Although the term Trinity is not found in the Bible the Scripture teaches one God exists in three distinct persons. Finally we must note that criticisms of the Trinity are based mostly upon misconceptions of what the Bible has to say about the subject. ..”

CLARIFYING MISUNDERSTANDINGS
“….To say, as the minority cult of the Maryanyas did, that Mary was the mother of God through whom He produced a physical son, and both were to be taken as separate gods besides God, is absurd! This ludicrous and heathen concept of the Trinity is completely condemned by both Islam and Christianity! The Quran rejects it in clear terms in Surah 4, Al Nisa, verse 171. The Trinity has also been missuderstood to mean that God is three persons and only one person at the same time and in the same sense. Neither are there three substances in one substance. In opposite to this contradictions the Christians definition of the Trinity is expressed in the Athenasian Creed: “We worship one God in Trinity, and Trinity in Unity; Neither confounding the Persons; nor dividing the Substance (Essence).” The word “person” is here used in the sense of “self with a particlular function” (The Illustrated Bible Dictionary” by F.F. Bruce, IVP Leicester, 1962, see “person”)…

BIBLICAL FACTS

“…There are a number of verses in the New Testament that call Jesus and the Holy Spirit God, besides God the Father. (John 8:58, compare with Exodus 3:14; Acts 5:3-4 etc.) In the light of this truth the following verses are understood to be speaking about the Trinity:

“Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name (singular!) of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit” (Matthew 28:19).

In Acts 2:38, 8:16, 19:4 People are baptised in the name of Jesus only. Since Jesus is now included in a way he was not in John’s baptism (19:4), the abbreviated form is used in the beginning to emphasize the distinctive quality of the new baptism.

“May the grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit be with you all” (2 Corinthians 13:14).

For more verses speaking about the Trinity when one considers the Biblical context see Ephesians 4:4-6, 5:18-20, 1 Cor 12:4-6, and Romans 8:9-11.

Even tough the word “Trinity” does not literally occur in these passages, the concept is quite clearly taught. In Islam too God is called “El Adl,” meaning “the Just,” “El Wajid,” meaning “The Inventor or Maker,” “Edh Dhur,” meaning “the harmful,” etc. in the list of the 99 names of God. However these words are nowhere found in the Quran but Muslims still accept these attributes as belonging to God. See The Muslim Doctrine of God by S.M. Zwemer, American tract Society, 1905, pages 39-45…”

Why I Hate Religion, But Love Jesus || Spoken Word

“Jesus is Lord”?

What does it mean when giving your “life to Christ”? It means giving Him control of “everything” in your life. To depend and trust in Him on all your “life challenges”.

I try to ask God to use me each day. The other day I was having trouble with my lawnmower. I was hoping to mow my lawn and then leave town for the cities for a 3-day weekend. I was disappointed that my lawnmower wouldn’t start yesterday. I then said, it it’s Your will Lord for me to stay here an extra day before going out of town…let it be done! Well, I finally got my lawnmower “fixed” (praise God for His wisdom and creative answer to fix it) today. I would realize the “reason” for it to be fix today throughout the rest of the day. Earlier this morning, I asked God this… “Lord, show me how I can be used by You today”?. Well, God answered it by having me help a “neighbor” wheel her “friend” up several steps on her wheel chair. Then I went to this annual “picnic”. I would sit at this table with a “family” I haven’t seen for awhile. We had a great fellowship time and “catching up” ! My lawnmower being fixed the day after was worth it. This is just “one” of many stories of what it means when you “ask Jesus the Lord of your life” (daily)!

It’s a lifestyle when one “tries” to follow Christ’s teachings through a “daily personal relationship” with Him!
