Christianity Lecture I
Bear in mind the apocalyptic theme going on at the moment of Jesus
Jewish people want a messiah
Jesus death was not abnormal at the time of Roman rule
John the Baptist claims the end is coming and has the sense of urgency that the end
is coming and repentance is needed now before God comes
Many of the stories of Jesus comes from the Gospels
Scholars find this problematic as the factual truth to these stories is debatable
God is more loving the new testament, as Marcion has said
Mosaic composite portrait of Jesus
Loving God and loving ones neighbours is more emphasized in Christianity but not
completely new
John the Baptist wants people to repent now before time runs out
Jesus not concerned with the rules
www.notesolution.com
More concern for forgiveness
Hes more of a spiritual messiah
His kingdom is a heavenly one
Christianity began as a missionary religion
Pentecost- God giving the disciples the ability to speak foreign languages
Interesting to contrast this with the tower of Babel story of God using the issuance of
many languages as punishment rather than reward
Letters of Paul, early insight in the early Christianity
He is looked at as the key lieutenant
A key component of this is his ability to attract non-Jewish participants
He spoke greek
Paul spoke of gentiles not having to be circumcised for Christianity
Dietary Regulations are loosened
Paul emphasizes the cosmic part of Christianity, talks about Jesus as a redeemer of
human sin
Ultimate punishment again is death
oRhetoric about Christianity is that reward is life
Not talking about the judgement, heaven and hell
THE STRUCTURE OF THE NEW TESTAMENT
oInerrancy
Views it to be infallible
Believes the document was divinely inspired
oLiteralism
Contemporary interpretation
All events in the gospels did actually occur
www.notesolution.com
oHistorical-Critical
The names were attached after, there was a Matthew community etc.
Matthew Mark Luke John
Gospel of Peter didnt make the cut as it claims that Jesus didnt die but ascended to
heaven before being crucified
GOSPELS
Mark(Winged Lion)
oSaviour of the Gentiles
o65-70CE
oApocalyptic urgency
oLions are affiliated with the desert

oA misunderstood messiah
Matthew (winged Angel)
oPromised messiah of Israel
