Examine the Principal Events of Jesus' LifeEdit
Explain why Jesus is the Model for Christian LifeEdit
- Jesus acts as a role model for Christian life as he is the embodiment of his Christian teachings. Always practiced what he taught. As the ‘perfect human’ Christians model from his attitudes towards God and others, his actions in social justice and his admirable characteristics and personal qualities.
- Servants of humanity: Treated all people equally regardless of race, gere those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they will be filled". Example of this in practice is his association and blessing of the poor, he eats with the tax collector Zacchaeus. Jesus acts as model by reinforcing the Christian teachings of helping “the least of Jesus’ brothers and sisters.”
- Jesus also portrays the Christian demeanour through demonstration of his own qualities which he encourages Christians to adopt. Jesus is often tested throughout his life and in each situation he displays traits such as selflessness, forgiveness, mercy, compassion and humility. The ultimate example of this is the love and selflessness he displays when he gave up his life for the benefit of humanity. “I am the resurrection and the life, he who believes in me will live.”
- He was a pretty cool guy, like a really cool guy
