Jesus' message in the New Testiment is a completion of the old Testiment. Jesus never said to his followers who were Jews not to stop Jewish law and tradition but not to expect other non-Jews to follow their, Jewish laws and tradition.

Considering all the "New testament" scriptures what was the message Jesu was trying to get across to his followers.

I am not looking for bible quotes or speculations... just the answer to what was the message that was to be spread.

Repentance and Salvation through the example of his Life, Death, and Resurrection.

I'm with Mike on that one! angel_not.gif

For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son that whosoever believeth in Him shall not perish, but have everlasting life.

sorry for quoting Shadows, but some things cannot be improved upon by paraphrasing.

Elspeth, if you'll forgive me saying so, in this Christian forum (or anywhere for that matter) no apology need by made for quoting the Scripture, although i do understand the context in which you make such a comment.

The Word of God is a two edged sword, it has more power than our words can ever have to correct those in error, to encourage the needy and to feed the hungry with good spiritual food.

God's followers have a commission to spread the gospel, it is not always welcomed, but that comes down to individual decisions whether to embrace Life or reject it, and also the Calling of God.

Hi there Tassie! How are things going for you? Good I hope!

I think the only reason Elspeth was apologizing is because in his original question, Shadows asked us to answer his question without quoting form the Bible. But that is an almost impossible task. I think her post was eloquent asn beautiful!

Thank you, Elspeth! It is so good to see you posting again, my sister! I have missed you! Do you know Roisin-Teagan's addy? Tell her we miss her too! smile.gif

Yep, the wizardman was right. I apologized because shadows asked us to speak from our hearts, not quote. But when the two conincide, why not use the best?

Thanks for the welcome, wizard. No, I don't know Roisin's address other than the mail on this site. Sorry to hear she hasn't been around. Perhaps like the rest of us, too busy.

I can answer my original question with one word.....


LOVE!

I would have to say the message of the ENTIRE Bible, not just the New Testament is Two fold: Love, From a righteous God to falible man, and Repentance, of man from his sinful actions.

He came to die for our sins but also to teach us about how we are to live and love. He changed people's lives.

May I add something to this?

It was first mankind in general, then the Jews and then the christian church who were/ are chosen to spread the glory of God and show through their behaviour the true nature of god, and show to other people around them how great and glorious god really is.

As God in his wisdom however knew , that mankind as such would fail in this task through their weakness and flawedness (i. e. because theiy are sinners), he came down himself and provided a way, so that the task could still be achieved - and alone through faith in Jesus alone. Of course, this faith will show itself in different ways - i. e. the way how we treat each other, the attitude how we face every day and so on, but it is not the works that count, but the faith in Jesus. There's scripture to prove this, but I forgot where exaclty you can find this - partly its old testament (somewhere in Deut 7, 7 i think about the task of Israel), then Paul has various things to say about the way of behaviour in the Christian community (esp. Romans, 1. Korinth and Ephesians if I remmeber right) and of course brother James who said that Faith without work is dead .... They are all theologic bombs, but that's how i would put them alltogether.

I also have to say that I agree with the guy about the message of the whole bible - love and repentance. smile.gif

Faileas, I think you put it together very well, you have a solid understanding of God's Plan for mankind, the future and the universe.

A fine thing to have indeed!
