...quantity and influence the world on a daily basis. The founders, Jesus and Mohammad were leaders of these two very distinct followings and are traced historically, had a huge impact on their religion both in the past and in the present, and were worshiped by many. Their messages are also being carried out through the world in present day, by the followers of each religion. Examining and getting closer to the position in each religion that these key people had is extremely important into understanding each religion in present day. Jesus was born of the Virgin Mary in 4 B.C.E, but his followers believe that he was conceived by God, which is known as the immaculate conception of the Virgin Mother. His family was in Bethlehem during his birth, but then later returned to Nazareth where he grew up. He was named Jesus which means, “God saves” (Fisher, 2005). Jesus’ life wasn’t noted until he was the age of about twelve, when he traveled to Jerusalem and his parents left him behind, and was found by rabbis reading the Torah. He was reprimanded by the rabbis, and it started his quest for understanding and connection between him and God. This started his quest of finding himself as well, and the Christian religion began to then develop. Jesus through his twenties was trying to branch out of Judaism and was one of the few reformers in the Jewish faith, and was considered to be a prophet of his time (Stofka, 2012). Jesus hit the age of thirty, and it was when his life started to......

Jesus and Mohammed

... Running Head: Jesus and Mohammed Jesus and Mohammed Jesus and Mohammed Monotheistic religions are those religions that believe in only one God. Two monotheist religions are Christianity and Islam. These two religions each came to be due to their respective prophets: Jesus and Mohammed. Although both Christianity and Islam believe in the same God, they each have their different beliefs due to the differences brought on by their prophets. Jesus Christianity was started with its prophet Jesus Christ. Jesus was born to Mary and Joseph in Bethlehem. His birth is said to be immaculate because Mary was still a virgin when she became pregnant with Jesus. It is said that she conceived Jesus directly from the Holy Spirit. His conception became the first sign that Jesus was the son of god. His birth is very important because he was born in the stables with the animals. Humble shepherds and angels came to his side to pay their respects to the son of god. The bible also states that three wise men followed a star to the stable and brought with them gifts for the new king, Jesus Christ. There gifts were gold, frankincense, and myrrh and were to confirm his kingship (Fisher, 2005). After Jesus was born, Herod, afraid that the newborn baby would indeed take over his role as king, ordered the death of Jesus. Joseph was awaken by the Holy Spirit and told to take Mary and the baby and escaped to Egypt where they would be safe (Biblica, 1984,......

...BSCE-1 THEO 2 1:00-2:00 TTHS HUMAN SAVIOR IMAGES OF JESUS Jewish Mystic / Spirit Person: One of those figures in human history who had frequent and vivid experiences of the sacred. Jesus, too, was a spirit person, according to the Gospels, he had visions including one at his baptism in which, like Ezekiel, he “saw heaven opened before him and he saw the Spirit coming down on him like a dove”. Jesus also used spiritual practices like fasting and long hours of prayer typical for spirit persons. His intimate communion with God is indicated by his use of the word Abba. He called God Abba, a term signifying closeness and familiarity. It is equivalent to the words papa, daddy, or itay, or tatang. Jewish Healer: The historical evidence that Jesus performed paranormal healings is very strong; he must have been a remarkable healer. Jesus both healed and exorcised. Not all spirit persons become healers and exorcists, but some do and Jesus was among them. His contemporaries and he himself viewed these abilities as the result of the Spirit’s power working through Him. The Gospels refer to healings and exorcisms and healings. In addition to possessions by evil spirits, the conditions treated included fever, paralysis, withered hand, bent back, haemorrhage, deafness and dumbness, blindness, dropsy, coma, and skin disease. Jewish Wisdom Teacher: He taught a subversive and alternative wisdom. Jesus was regularly addressed as a teacher during his lifetime by......

Jesus and Mohammed

...Jesus and Mohammed Cassie Osborn 5/24/2014 HUM/130 Alice Aud Jesus and Mohammed Jesus and Mohammed both represent major figures in the Christianity and Muslim religions respectively. These two religions are completely different but each figure is of equal importance to their respective religions from the way each of their followers pray down to the holidays each celebrate. Jesus is of the Christian religion and Mohammed is of the Islam religion. These two figure are easily the two biggest, most recognized names in religion today due to the billions of combined believers in each faith. It is considered across most Christianity sects that Jesus was born on December 25th in the city of Bethlehem. Christians believe this so heavily it has been induced into their doctrine, but there is some dispute between other religious groups. There are scholars that believe he was born in spring or fall, or even that he was born in Nazareth and not Bethlehem. That being said, December 25th is the date that Christians hold to be his birthday and the day itself has become very important to his believers. The Virgin Mary was Jesus’s mother and she was married to a carpenter named Joseph. It is widely believed that because Mary was a virgin, she was impregnated with Jesus through the Holy Spirit or God, making him God’s only son. At this time, Jewish individuals had been awaiting the Messiah, which the old prophecies had promised them was coming. This Messiah would be in some......

Jesus

...Jesus was the son of God. Jesus Christ came to Earth to live among mankind and to teach and minister to us. Jesus provided mankind with the hope of everlasting life and happiness if only we lived by God’s word. Jesus taught us that life was a gift and through his teachings he was able to show us that God only wants the best for us and if we chose to live by his word we will have this. Jesus was sent to live among mankind by God. He was born to the Virgin Mary and to Joseph a carpenter. God knew that if Jesus was born to a virgin it would show that Jesus was pure and truly from God. Joseph didn’t want to marry Mary once he found out she was pregnant, but when God appeared to him in his dreams he knew that Jesus was going to save us from our sins and decided to stay married to her. Once it was time for Jesus to be born, his poor parents could find no place to have the baby and resorted to Jesus being born in the stable. However, this was the best decision because it showed that Jesus came in poverty and with humility so that Jesus could identify with weakest among us. As Jesus grew up, he began to teach to people. His disciples were his primary focus, for they were to carry on his message to those that he could not come in contact with. Jesus had to perform miracles to prove to nonbelievers that there was a God and that God truly had their best interest at heart. These miracles Jesus performed were simple, but were significant. In one of them for example, Jesus came upon a......

...Jesus and Muhammad Anthony Ebron 3/1/2009 Trace the lives of Jesus and Muhammad historically. Compare what impact the death of each person had on his respective religion. Describe the ways each individual was/is worshipped. Explain how their messages are being carried out in the world today. Jesus and Muhammad Paper Life of Jesus: There is very little historical proof of the life of Jesus outside of the Bible. What Christians believe about Jesus’ life and teachings is based largely on biblical texts, particularly the first four books of the New Testament, which are called the gospels. These books seem to have been written around forty to sixty years after Jesus’ death. They are based on the oral transmission of the stories and discourses, which may have been influenced by the growing split between Christians and Jews. The gospels were first written down in Greek and perhaps Aramaic, the everyday language that Jesus spoke, and then copied and translated in many different ways over the centuries. Jesus was probably born a few years before the first year of what is now called the Common Era. Traditionally, Christians have believed that Jesus was born in Bethlehem. Jesus’ mother was Mary, who was a virgin when she conceived him by Holy Spirit; her husband was Joseph, a carpenter from Bethlehem. No other stories are told about Jesus’ childhood in Nazareth until he was twelve years old. He accompanied his parents on their yearly trip to Jerusalem for Passover. Left......

Jesus and Mohammed

...| Jesus and Mohammed | University of Phoenix HUM 130 | | | The destiny of men and women has been shaped by Jesus and Mohammed for a long period of time. Christianity and Islam are currently the largest religions with a following. These are the only two religions that have a global presence; in other words you will find Muslims and Christians present in every territory in the world. Both Jesus and Mohammed have a lot of similarity and differences which is reflected in their respective religions. Muhammad was born in 570 A.D in Mecca, a city in Western Saudi Arabia. He was an orphan, having lost both parents by the age of 6. After age 8 the young Muhammad was raised by his uncle, Abu Talib. In time he joined the trading caravans as a merchant.  At age 25 Muhammad married a wealthy widow by the name of Khadijah, 15 years his senior. The couple had four daughters and two sons who died in infancy. During Muhammad’s life he had a total of eleven wives. He was described as gentle and humble by nature. He loved children and animals. At age 40, Muhammad fell into a trance in a cave near Mecca where he claimed to have heard the angel Gabriel speak to him. Muhammad reportedly ran home crying out, “O, Kadijah! I have either become a soothsayer or else I am possessed of the Djin [demon] and gone mad.”Khadijah and her Christian cousin Waraqah consoled Muhammad, assuring him his vision must be real, and that he was truly God’s prophet. Muhammad had......

Jesus and Mohammad

...Jesus and Mohammad Jason Smith HUM 130 November 6, 2011 Jesus and Mohammad The teachings of faith and the word of God that was originally spread by Jesus Christ and the prophet Mohammad have stood the test of time and are still followed to this day. Even though these two men lived very different lives they both had the divine mission to show the people that there is only one true God and to spread his word where ever they should travel. Their lives and customs were different yet they both suffered greatly at the hands of non believers in order to spread the word of their one true God. Mohammad Mohammad was born an ordinary man in 570 CE. This ordinary man was soon to become a prophet who was to reveal to everyone that Islam was the true religion and the original path of monotheism. Allah (God) is the only God and sole authority for Islam; however Mohammad was to be his messenger and was believed by Muslims to be the model for the teachings in the Qur’an. It is believed that Mohammad’s sayings and actions of his life are preserved in the Hadith. Mohammad’s father had died before he was born and when he still young his mother and grandfather passed away leaving him to live with his uncle and to become a shepherd. It was during a trip to Syria with his uncle that Mohammad caught the eye of a Christian monk who saw marks upon his body that indicated he was a prophet. Throughout this time Mohammad continued to work and soon became the manager of......

Their deaths impacted their religions and followers. They are still being studied and their word is still being followed. This paper will trace their lives historically, compare what impact their death had on their religion, describe how each individual was and is worshipped, and explain how their messages are being carried out in the world today. According to the Bible, the Angel Gabriel told Jesus’ mother Mary, that she was chosen to bear the Son of God. This came as a surprise to Mary because she was newly married to Joseph who was a carpenter, and still a virgin. This concept is known as the Immaculate Conception. Jesus was born in Bethlehem. This fulfilled the prophecies foretold in the Old Testament about the Messiah being born in the homeland of King David. There are no stories about the time Jesus was a child up until the age of twelve. The story goes that his parents left behind Jesus and when they found him, he was in a Temple. He amazed the rabbis by “discussing the Torah” and asking “did you not know that I must be in my Father’s house?” . His teenage years and twenties are also a mystery. At thirty he showed up to......

...Jesus and Muhammad Carina Perez Axia University of Phoenix Jesus and Muhammad From the time of creation religion has been part of human life. There are many religions and religious leaders in the world today. The two most influential religious leaders would be Jesus Christ, leader of Christianity, and Muhammad, Leader of the Muslims. People have gathered to follow and worship these men from the day they were born. The history and beliefs of Christians and Muslims have very parallel beginnings due to the fact that their religions where both started by a son of Abraham. For Christians it is Abraham’s son Isaac who was selected by god for Muslims his son Ishmael was the chosen one. In the Old Testament is speaks of a savior that would come to earth to redeem mankind of their sins and the New testaments contains the account of this saviors life, and gives his name as Jesus Christ. Muslims however believe Christ to be a prophet and not the son of god. In the Bible it tells us the Christ was born in a small town in Bethlehem to Mary and Joseph. Mary and Joseph had traveled to the city of David to pay taxes and this is where Mary went onto labor. When the reach the city of David all the rooms of the inns where full so one inn keeper offered up his stable for shelter. This is where Jesus Christ the savior was born to a poor family in humble surroundings.
