religion and more specifically with Christianity, Jesus Christ represents the
central figure associated with it. According to the bible, Jesus is referred to
as the son of God, the supreme being and creator of the universe. He is
referred to as the messiah in waiting for His second coming. The existence of
Jesus Christ is attributed from the time of His conception in the Biblical
story in the New testament. He was conceived by the virgin Mary and His earthly
father was Joseph. The parents were of Jewish descent and so He belonged to the
same. He was born in Bethlehem during the reign
of King Herod in Judea. His childhood was
marked by the assistance to His father who was a carpenter while he attended
regular teachings of the scripture at the temple, as was the custom at the time.
His childhood was marked by increase in stature towards the word of God while living with His parents. He began sharing the word and give teachings on life as encompassed in the scriptures. He obtained followers and disciples who relied on His interpretation and delivery of the word and teachings. He performed miracles, healed the sick, helped the unfortunate and fed the hungry. His symbolist as the son of God enhanced His reputation especially with the faithful and teachers of the word. According to the scripture, he was arrested, persecuted and crucified on the cross for His alleged inference from the teachers of the word and ways of the authorities at the time. Christianity remembers of his death, subsequent resurrection after three days and ascension into heaven awaiting His second coming. The religion is based on His teachings and values.
The mission of Jesus Christ can be divided into three parts, pre-mortal life, Christ’s mortal life and life after death. In the pre-mortal life, His mission was to be the ultimate savior of humankind from the evil. From the holy trinity between God the father, god the son and God the Holy spirit, creation was enabled. Through the mandate, revelation to the prophets was also enabled. During His mortal life, the mission centered on the availability to human kind and workings of the salvation. He taught the gospel in every place and audience He could manage from His young adulthood. He healed the sick, fed the hungry and performed miracles as documented in the bible. His mission was to organize the church and take it back to where it belonged according to the scriptures and God’s intentions.
The main aim of His mission on earth was to atone for the suns of human kind and subsequent realization of salvation to the people. He died for all people as was mandated by His father, and enabled the salvation process. After His death and resurrection, His mission was clear to the believers according to the relevance on the present day. Upon ascension into the spirit world, He availed a helper to the believers and channel communication to God through Him. The revelation of the leaders of the churches relies on His teachings and values as regards salvation and belief. The sacrifice of Christ symbolizes the mission of deriding human from evil, instead, focusing on the kingdom of heaven and attaining eternal life. he therefore holds the power to judge humankind as believers wait on the judgment day.
