Who Was JesusA Humanities Essay That TeachesThe Study of The Bible AsA Historical DocumentI felt a very positive impression of who Jesus was after finishingthe Book of Matthew I had a new image of someone who was a down-to-earth caring individual I did not find quotes of Jesus that claimedbeing superior to the common man of whom sinners could not look upona view that most people had of their Gods for centuries beforeMatthew 1249-50 Jesus announces to multitudes that they are hismother and brothers In that way he puts himself at an equal level tothe people rather than claiming to be a God above them This reflectsthe whole attitude of the bookChapters 6-7 of Matthew quote Jesus as he is presentingrules to live by to the multitudes To me all of these sounded likehints to leading a happy life for yourself Jesus reflects a God thatdoes not expect virgins or animals to be sacrificed in His name but aGod that is pleased by followers that love not only God but each otheralso These seem like simple logical rules to live by But theyreflected a time in history where that kind of love for one another washard to find because of the hardships inflicted upon the peopleI find some conflict in Jesus actions however Jesus never asfar as I know says to ignore to commandments of God in the HebrewScriptures however constantly breaks the Sabbath Matt 1213 andothers and gives VERY flimsy and unconvincing explanations for it Iam not sure what his message was in those actions Perhaps he didntcareIn general Matthew was a good entertaining story to read with avery dramatic ending and great character development a littlesarcastic humor hereI was very surprised to find much of the Book of Mark a repeat ofwhat was written in Matthew but with a little less detail and a fewstories omittedJesus goes a little overboard on the parables Most of theparables needed to be explained to his disciples
