Jesus se buitengewone liefde

April 13, 2024 Uncategorized 0

Uitkomste: Ons verstaan hoe buitengewoon Jesus se liefde was en hoe buitengewoon goed (sondeloos) Hy was, in ag genome die mag en krag wat tot sy beskikking was. Dit in vergelyking met hoe alle groot leiers en helde in die geskiedenis uiteindelik deur hul mag en gesag tot sonde en boosheid gedryf is, of dat hulle aan een of ander karakterfout gelei het.

  • Inleiding
  • Bespreek die aanhaling van Bob Seidensticker “Strip away any supernatural claims from the story of Alexander the Great, and you’ve still got cities throughout Asia named Alexandria and coins with Alexander’s likeness. Strip away any supernatural claims from the Caesar Augustus story, and you’re left with the Caesar Augustus from history. But strip away the supernatural claims from the Jesus story, and you’re left with a fairly ordinary rabbi. The Jesus story is nothing but the supernatural elements”

  • Toepassing
  • William Payley maak die volgende uitlating “Neither as represented by his followers, nor as attacked by his enemies, is he [Jesus] charged with any personal vice. … This faultlessness is more peculiar than we are apt to imagine. Some stain pollutes the morals or the morality of almost every other teacher, and of every other lawgiver”
