"There Is Nobody Like Jesus"
Hebrews 1:1-3

Introduction

1. H. G. Wells, the brilliant and noted historian, once listed the ten most famous and most important men of all of history, and he listed Jesus Christ as number one, now at first glance you might think that is marvelous. You might think that he did Jesus a favor.

2. Well I beg to differ, think it was an insult of the highest order. Because Jesus was not just a man among men, he was God among men. There is nobody like him. Never before was there one like him. Never since will there be one like him. Because there is nobody like Jesus.

3. Some anonymous author wrote this years ago: more than nineteen hundred years ago there was a man born contrary to laws of life. This man lived in poverty and was reared in obscurity ....only once did he cross the boundary of the country in which he lived; that was during his exile in childhood....in infancy he startled the king; in childhood he puzzled the doctors: in manhood he ruled the course of nature, walked upon the billows as if on pavement, and hushed the sea to sleep....he never wrote a book, and yet all of the libraries of the country could not hold the books that have been written about him....he never wrote a song, and yet he has furnished theme for more songs than all the songwriters combined.... He never founded a college, but all the schools put together cannot boast of having as many students.... Though time has spread many years between the people of this generation and the scene of his crucifixion, yet he still lives. Herod could not destroy him, and the grave could not hold him....he stands -forth upon the highest pinnacle of heavenly glory, proclaimed by God, acknowledged by angels, adored by saints, and feared by devils, as the living, personal Christ, our Lord, our savior and our God.

My Perfect Dream Vacation: There's No Place Like Home

...My Perfect Dream Vacation: There's No Place Like Home Almost everyone has their own idea of a dream vacation. It's the perfect place to get away from the reality of every day life and the stress that goes along with it, and the choices and ideas of the “perfect vacation” are as varied as the people who dream about them. Some fantasize about lazing on a warm, sunny beach with soft ocean breezes and a cold exotic drink at their side. Some dream of forests and wildlife, cool running streams, and fresh mountain air that is thick with the scent of pine. There are those whose ideas of the perfect dream vacation involves the thrill of stock car racing mixed with the roar of the crowd, the smell of fuel and hot asphalt that's mingled with the smell of hot dogs and fries from the concession stand, and the heart stopping excitement of mishaps on the track. So what is my idea of the perfect dream vacation? It's simple. It's the place where there are no crowds, everything is familiar, the food is prepared to my specific taste, and the bed is my own.

I'M Nobody Who Are You

...“I’m Nobody! Who are you?” by Emily Dickinson Most people feel invisible at some point in their lives; whether it’s because they’re in the shadow of an older sibling, because they are shy, or simply because everyone around them has been busy, it doesn’t make much difference. It’s still a horrible thing to feel like no one even realizes you’re alive or that you’ve been doing things. Emily Dickinson felt this way often; she lived at home and didn’t leave the house much, mostly corresponding with people by letters. However, her invisibility didn’t bother her too much, and that is what this poem is all about. When you feel invisible, you aren’t alone, because someone else is feeling invisible too. Dickinson starts out the poem introducing herself, ”I’m Nobody! Who are you?” (1) Being nobody can mean a lot of things; it could mean she’s no one important, no one special, no one significant, or no one that everyone knows. However, she could also be nobody to many people simply because she doesn’t try to stand out or feel important. She is content just being herself, living her plain, simple life and doing things that make her happy. Being nobody makes her somewhat mysterious; she’s obviously a person, but most people don’t know who she really is. This also relates to the second line in the poem, “Are you – Nobody – too?” (2) Dickinson’s question of the reader seems to show tha t being nobody is something everyone feels at some point in their life. Dickinson calls herself nobody,......

Jesus

...Mission We are committed to spreading the Good news we have by sharing our lives with others. Mark 16:15-16 "He said to them, "Go into all the world and preach the good news to all creation. Whoever believes and is baptized will be saved, but whoever does not believe will be condemned." 3. New Testament emphasis Whilst obviously, both parts of the Bible are of vital importance, we place an emphasis on the New Testament as it gives us not only the life of Christ to follow, but also teaching on how to live our lives as followers of Jesus, and how to organize and run the church. 4. Simple Confession of Faith There are many long and complicated confessions of faith. Whilst we do not necessarily disagree with any of them, we stick to a simple one (Matthew 16:16). Jesus asked the question "Who do you say I am?" To which Peter replied, "You are the Christ, the Son of the living God." 5. Believer's Baptism We believe, the person must make a commitment to Jesus Christ as their personal Lord and Savior to be baptized. We follow the Biblical pattern of baptism by immersion where the person is literally "immersed" under the water rather than sprinkled or having water poured over them. (We will do this under very special circumstances if the person cannot go under the water for medical reasons). For more information on Believer's Baptism. We do not practice infant baptism, but have services of infant dedication where the parents or guardians of the infant promise to bring up the......

There's Other Places Like Home

...Facebook. If you think about it, you can essentially do whatever you want because it is your house. You can do all of your pondering, crying, sleeping, eating, schoolwork, etc. in the comfort of your home. I view it as a safe haven, somewhere I can call sanctuary. I know for a fact after I’ve had a long school day I like to just lock myself in my room and listen to music. It’s my way of escaping from the world and all of its distractions. Sure I can pleasure you with nostalgic memories from my childhood or the numerous holidays and vacation spots I enjoyed, but what’s unique about that. Like you said, I’m sure you don’t want to read the same thing eighteen times. But rest assured I think we can all agree that our past is very critical for our present. I think for the most part a majority of people has some positive memories back in their younger days. But regardless if positive or negative everyone has his or her own picture of home from the past. The past is what molds who you are now, including what you experienced as a child. This is why what we formed in our head as home in the past can directly affect what we regard as home in the present. Think about it like this: when you first tried your newfound favorite ice cream flavor, you can always refer back to your first time having it as you eat your favorite ice cream in the present. You’ll never forget the overwhelming joy you felt as it entered your mouth. Similarly, these experiences you’ve made in the past help shape......

...BSCE-1 THEO 2 1:00-2:00 TTHS HUMAN SAVIOR IMAGES OF JESUS Jewish Mystic / Spirit Person: One of those figures in human history who had frequent and vivid experiences of the sacred. Jesus, too, was a spirit person, according to the Gospels, he had visions including one at his baptism in which, like Ezekiel, he “saw heaven opened before him and he saw the Spirit coming down on him like a dove”. Jesus also used spiritual practices like fasting and long hours of prayer typical for spirit persons. His intimate communion with God is indicated by his use of the word Abba. He called God Abba, a term signifying closeness and familiarity. It is equivalent to the words papa, daddy, or itay, or tatang. Jewish Healer: The historical evidence that Jesus performed paranormal healings is very strong; he must have been a remarkable healer. Jesus both healed and exorcised. Not all spirit persons become healers and exorcists, but some do and Jesus was among them. His contemporaries and he himself viewed these abilities as the result of the Spirit’s power working through Him. The Gospels refer to healings and exorcisms and healings. In addition to possessions by evil spirits, the conditions treated included fever, paralysis, withered hand, bent back, haemorrhage, deafness and dumbness, blindness, dropsy, coma, and skin disease. Jewish Wisdom Teacher: He taught a subversive and alternative wisdom. Jesus was regularly addressed as a teacher during his lifetime by......

The Man Nobody Knows

... The Man Nobody Knows: A Discovery of the Real Jesus “The Man Nobody Knows” is a historical tale illustrating the biblical work of Jesus as the “founder of modern business.” In this article, the attributes of Jesus are clearly underlined to match those of a successful business man in the modern world. The preaching and life of Christ reflect the path of any successful executive. The story comes about due to a continued revolt in a young man’s mind about the works of Jesus (Bruce Barton, 1925), he feels though Jesus came to save the world, His life and missions relate to the journey of a successful businessman. “Cultural Modernism “as a theme is brought out in this story. Cultural modernism is a philosophical movement aimed at transformation of the traditional society into an industrialized society. Though cultural modernism can be traced back in the nineteenth century in the Western Society; Jesus’ work is, however, no short of the theme. During His era, Jesus organized divided cultures into one distinct one through His executive authority. ” Having gathered together his organization, there remained for Jesus the tremendous task of training it.” In His era, religious beliefs were viewed as a hindrance to cultural modernism. With His arrival, cultural modernism was depicted in the new ways of worshiping, economic activities and communication. “His language was marvelously simple. “Mass society comprises mass culture, production and consumption. “The Man Nobody Knows”......

The Life of Jesus

... JESUS Religion 1302 N2 Professor To write this paper on Jesus brings so much joy to my heart. To write about a man that that gave his life that we may be able to have a relationship with God brings tears to my eyes. Jesus our savior meaning the one who saved us from our sins and delivered us from hell is the most powerful name this world has ever known. The bible tells us that there is no other name; that man can be saved by, than the name Jesus! The bible also tells us that every knee shall bow and ever tongue shall confess the name Jesus. I found out over my years of studying the word that the whole bible talks about Jesus. From the very beginning to the very end. I found out that the Old Testament is the New Testament concealed and the New Testament is the Old Testament revealed. The Old Testament tells us about how a God would make away for His people to come back to Him. How He would provide a Lamb to sacrifice once and for all. Jesus would be that Lamb the Lamb of God. The New Testament reveals that God kept His word. But what’s beautiful about this is the way Jesus was conceived. The blood line of Jesus was preserved. He had to be born thru the blood line and Mary was in that blood line. So God seen Mary being a part of the bloodline she found favor with God to carry His Only begotten Son! It’s amazing how God chose Mary she had never known a man and was betrothed to Joseph. God being the God He is and protecting His Son came to Joseph and told him not to put his......

Jesus

...prophet Jesus pbuh in the holy Qur’an The prophet Jesus pbuh, known as Isa or Isa Ibn Maryam in the holy Qur’an, is considered to be a messenger of god in Islam who came before the prophet Muhammad pbuh and is mentioned in the holy Qur’an on numerous occasions. The verses of the Qur’an regarding Jesus pbuh include stories such as Mary conceiving him whilst still a virgin, the details of his birth, and his talking to the people whilst still in his cradle. Also mentioned is the revelation of the Gospel (Injil) onto the prophet Jesus pbuh, his ascending and his second coming before the Day of Judgment. The many amazing facts and miracles referring to the prophet Jesus throughout the Qur’an reflect that he is clearly a significant figure in the Qur’an and in Islam. The birth of Jesus pbuh was a miraculous event as described in the holy Qur’an. Jesus’ mother Mary was visited by the angel Gabriel who gave her good news of a son: 'O Mary, God gives you glad tidings of a son through a word from HIM; his name will be Christ Jesus, son of Mary, honored in this world and in the Hereafter, and of those nearest to God (Quran 3:45). Mary was shocked by this news, as she was still a virgin. She asked the angel how she could have a child when no man had ever touched her. The angel replied: So your Lord says, ‘It is easy for me: and (We wish) to appoint him as a sign to men and a mercy from Us.  And it is a matter (already) decided (Quran 19:16-21). The Qur’an states the virgin birth of......

Jesus Ceo

...Jesus CEO Introduction There are many different characteristics that are talked about in the book “Jesus, CEO”. The three leadership techniques that are discussed are: strength of self-mastery, strength of self-action, and strength of relationships. There are a variety of different characteristics from each leadership technique that stood out to me about being an effective leader in the 21st century. Strength of self-mastery Strength of self-mastery focuses on internal motivators that allow us to influence others. Self-mastery is a test of our character. There are 5 characteristics which stood out to me about Jesus that would contribute to an effective leader in the 21st century. 1. He believed in himself. Jesus was one of the most confident people that ever lived. He never lacked confidence in himself or his abilities. Jesus’ belief in himself was an aspect of self-mastery. This instilled confidence in followers but also allowed him to relate to others. Believing in yourself in the 21st century is an important characteristic to have because if you don’t believe in yourself then nobody will believe in you. Effective leaders believe in themselves and are good at getting other people to believe in them. 2. He did the difficult things. Jesus did not worry about public opinions or the feelings of others, but he made decisions based on what was necessary. Professionals stay focused on their mission and do the difficult things. Whether it’s......

Jesus Existed

...Jaimie Scherer GS 2210 Jesus of Nazareth The Existence of Jesus Final Paper 2.27.15 Introduction To this day, the existence of Jesus Christ is still a debate. Not a debate on whether or not He turned water into wine, or was the Son of God, but His actual, human existence is still questioned. The existence of Jesus, and who He was, is a basis of world history. To dispel Jesus’ existence would be rewriting history and the Christianity religion as a whole. Not everyone has to believe the gospels, but Jesus did exist and was an important political figure to the world. Religion is something that is meant to bring people together to create family outside of our bloodline. However, religion is putting larger walls up between us and is the cause of the world’s wars, both past and present. Jesus didn’t want religion to break us down, but bring us together, without judgment, prejudice, or different beliefs. Even though there is much documentation, including outside of the gospels, of Jesus’ existence, people are still skeptical and question His existence. Including documentation, there has been physical, archeologist evidence supporting the places Jesus visited, walked through, and stayed. This paper will outline that Jesus was a person that walked this earth and was very impactful in our history. Continuous efforts of debating this topic should be put to rest and we should discuss Jesus in our history lessons, not as a religious figure, but as a historian who......

Jesus Crist was circumcised on the “8th day.” Jesus mother name is Mary and his adoptive fathers name is Joseph. Both parents live in the City of Nazareth, Nazareth is a Galilean town within the “territory of Zebulun.” At the age of 12, Jesus began talking to religious teachers.

The Historical Jesus

...THE QUEST FOR HISTORICAL JESUS. DATE: MAY, 2016 It is worthy of note that the first four centuries of the life of the Church was nearly marred by the Christological heresies. Argument about the person and work of Jesus Christ. Arguments abound concerning the Historicity of the Christian religion, while many has maintained that Jesus had not intended a development of faith from his teachings, the quest to identify the historical Jesus and differentiate between the Jesus of history and the Jesus of faith is going on. One of those devastating heresies called Docetism appeared in the time of John the beloved, propounded by the Marcions and the Gnostics, a teaching that denied the human nature of Jesus Christ claiming that the body is matter and matter is evil, so that the body was just a “Phantom” a body merely given a human appearance in nature but not necessarily human, because they believe that God cannot associate with evil. So John wrote in his first epistle that “every Spirit that confesses not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is not of God” 1John 4:3. The Jesus of History is the Jesus of the Historical Quests which is by now is on the 3rd stage. The Christ of Faith is the Christ of the Christian belief. To have any sort of separation between the two is like having a separation between the WORD and the CHRIST contrary to the Christian faith that was in the beginning with God as mentioned by John in John 1:2, 14. One cannot separate Jesus from Christ or try to......

Jesus

...In my search for the historical Jesus I found that there are several different opinions about Jesus’ life, from his birth, to where he was between the ages of 12 until he was 30, to his resurrection. I have taken several different opinions of who the real historical Jesus, but first I want to start with the facts. We know that Jesus was born in the time of Herod. This tells us that he had to be born somewhere around 6 BC. It is also known that he visited the temple at age twelve. Little is known about where Jesus was between the age of 12 and the age of thirty; thirty being when he started his ministry which took place in and around Israel. Most people do agree that Jesus died by crucifixion in the year thirty-three. I used the biblical story of Jesus for a base line story to get started; then explained other opinions at the end of this essay. Luke 2:1-20 1-5About that time Caesar Augustus ordered a census to be taken throughout the Empire. This was the first census when Quirinius was governor of Syria. Everyone had to travel to his own ancestral hometown to be accounted for. So Joseph went from the Galilean town of Nazareth up to Bethlehem in Judah, David's town, for the census. As a descendant of David, he had to go there. He went with Mary, his fiancée, who was pregnant. 6-7While they were there, the time came for her to give birth. She gave birth to a son, her firstborn. She wrapped him in a blanket and laid him in a manger, because there was no room in the hotel.......

Nobody

...During the 1995 the survey administered had estimated that the about forty percent of employees had been observed as involved in the romantic and love relationships with each other at their workplace. Furthermore it has also been observed that among all the working organizations about more than seventy percent have no clear policies and concerns regarding the affectation and love and romance relationships held by the employees. About more than fifty percent of the employees during the survey administered had responded that they are unaware about the policies and rules if their company or employer is having regarding the love and romance relationship at their workplace. In my view the employees at their work place while working should behave like the professionals and should act professionally. While if they are having love relationships among themselves would never be able to behave professionally. The Consensual Relationship Agreement generally refers to the agreement among the employees and the management or the employer stating that the employees are not allowed to have any sort of relationship with other employees that would be harmful or create negative effects on the working environment of the organization or its performance. The subject agreement of Consensual Relationship also confirms or even documents that the relationship voluntary and consensual. Furthermore the employers should at the time of agreement formulation attach the copy of sexual harassment policies......
