Jesus Christ, Crucified. Would You Take The Place Of This Man - Jeremy Camp, I love this song written by Jeremy Camp,
Jesus Christ - Profile of Jesus Christ from the New Testament:
This Man by Jeremy Camp,
Jesus of Nazareth—he is the Christ, the "Anointed One," or the "Messiah." The name "Jesus" is derived from the Hebrew-Aramaic word "Yeshua," meaning "Yahweh [the Lord] is salvation." The name "Christ" is actually a title for Jesus. It comes from the Greek word "Christos," meaning "the Anointed One," or "Messiah" in Hebrew.
Jesus is the central figure in Christianity. His life, message and ministry are chronicled in the four Gospels of the New Testament.
Most Bible scholars agree that Jesus was a Jewish teacher from Galilee who performed many miracles of healing and deliverance. He called 12 Jewish men to follow him, working closely with them to train and prepare them to carry on the ministry.
Jesus Christ, was crucified in Jerusalem by order of Pontius Pilate, the Roman governor, for claiming to be the King of the Jews. He resurrected three days after his death, appeared to his disciples, and then ascended into heaven.
His life and death provided the atoning sacrifice for the sins of the world. Man was separated from God through Adam's sin, but reconciled back to God through Jesus Christ's sacrifice. He will claim his Bride, the church, and later return at his Second Coming to judge the world and establish his eternal kingdom, thus fulfilling messianic prophecy.
Jesus Christ's Accomplishments:
Jesus Christ's accomplishments are too numerous to list. He was conceived of the Holy Spirit, and born of a virgin. He lived a sinless life. He turned water into wine, healed many sick, blind and lame people, he forgave sins, he multiplied fish and loaves of bread to feed thousands on more than one occasion, he delivered the demon possessed, he walked on water, he calmed the stormy sea, he raised children and adults from death to life. Jesus Christ proclaimed the good news of the Kingdom of God.
He laid down his life and was crucified. He descended into hell and took the keys of death and hell. He resurrected from the dead. Jesus Christ paid for the sins of the world and purchased the pardon of men. He restored man's fellowship with God, opening the way to eternal life. These are just a few of his extraordinary accomplishments
1.) Luke 23:34
Jesus said, "Father, forgive them, for they do not know what they are doing." And they divided up His clothes by casting lots.
2.) Luke 23:43
Jesus answered him, "I tell you the truth, today you will be with Me in paradise."
3.) John 19:27
When Jesus saw His mother there, and the disciple whom He loved standing nearby, He said to His mother, "Dear woman, here is your son," and to the disciple, "Here is your mother." From that time on, this disciple took her into his home.
New International Version (NIV)
16 For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.
