Jesus Christ

Jesus Christ was born in and around 3 B.C. in Bethlehem, little is known about his early life. The New Testament in the bible only reveals a few passages, for example the teaching in the temple. As a young man he founded Christianity through love and the teaching of the beatitudes. His life is recorded in the New Testament which is more a theological document of his life rather than a biography of Jesus. According to Christians, Jesus is considered the Incarnation of God and his teachings an example for living a more spiritual life. In the New Testament he reveals many teachings of love and the extended set of rules, the Beatitudes. Christians believe he died for the sins of all people and rose from the dead and will come again to judge the living and the dead.

Further explainations

1: Jesus sees people about to stone a prostitute and says those who have no sin cast the first stone.2. Jesus also presented the most important aspect to the Catholic faith which is the Beatitudes. 3. Jesus finally breaks the bread and shares the wine at the last supper to represent his body and blood and the Incarnation of himself.

The first example of a major impact Jesus has is in the adulterer in the temple. In John 8.6 Jesus says to the pharisees "All right, but let the one who has never sinned cast the first stone." This has played a major impact on Catholics today as we still have a tendency to judge others before judging ourselves first. Jesus teaches us that we are sometimes hypocrites and do not always listen to what Jesus says in Luke 6.31" "Treat others the same way you want them to treat you." We need to listen to Jesus' teachings and remember we would not want to be judged (stoned) but forgiven of our sins by our Lord Jesus Christ. Later in the bible Jesus gives us the greatest gift of all, the beatitudes. He performs this in what is called the Sermon on the Mount. As he sits there he shares the 8 beatitudes that expand on Moses' 10 commandments. The beatitudes go into depth on how to love one another the way God loves you. Finally during the last supper, before Jesus was crucified, Jesus revealed the Incarnation of Christ by saying in Mathew 26.26-28 "Take and eat; this is my body." and then says "Drink from it, all of you. This is my blood of the covenant, which is poured out for many for the forgiveness of sins." Jesus is the first to give his body and blood to the others he loves this still greatly impacts us Catholics today as we celibrate his body and blood during every mass.

Beatitudes

"Blessed are the poor in spirit, for their's is the kingdom of heaven." In this beatitude Jesus is describing those who are humble are welcomed into heaven. Humility is the realization that all gifts and graces are given to you by God. This is so often easily said not so easily done. In modern day people believe that they are the ones responsible for their skills and talents. They are not being humble and not doing what is expected of them from Jesus. An example of someone who lives to this standard of humility is Mother Teresa. She gave up everything in her life to live with the poorest of the poor and have the bare minimum for survival she acted very humbly and took care of those no else thought to take care of.
