Who Is Jesus in reality? Part : 8


In these days  what is the main aspect in the propagation of the Gospel ? It is believed that Jesus is the great  and as a person who possessed of divine glory. Therefore  let us examine carefully howfar this propagation is true in the light of teachings of Jesus himself in the Gospel. 

Jesus answered, if I honour my self, my honour is nothing: it is my Father that honoureth me; of whom ye say, that he is your God. -John 8:54
         In this verse Jesus makes clear that what he had, was not his own.
        As a matter of fact the merciful God had been giving a little bit of his glory to the holy prophets to perform the miracles to make people believe in their prophethood right from the beginning in some particular circumstances. So also God had bestowed a little bit of His glory to Jesus, but here the noticeable point is that did Jesus reserve the glory, which he had been given  by God for himself ? .So let us see what Jesus says in this regard in the following verse.

And that glory which thou gavest me I have given them that they may be one, even as we are one  -John 17:22

        If it  is believed that what  Jesus had been blessed with by God , had it been preserved by himself then there is  some reason to accept that Jesus is a God.  And  here  appear  two feeble points in the above . The  first point of  them is that  the glory of  Jesus is not of his own  and the second point is  that Jesus has given away his Glory to his disciples. Thus he has been deprived of glory which was given by God to him. If this be the fact now can he be deserved tobe called as glorious God?  To know that what was the belief of the early disciples about  the glory of Jesus, observe  what Jesus  says in this regard.

Now they known that all things whatsoever thou hast given me are of thee. -John 17:7

       This had been the actual belief of the immediate disciples of Jesus.  So there is no chance one to imagine Jesus in the capacity of God by mere virtue of his having been possessed of the glory and power of working miracles. Jesus says clearly in the above verse that what all he had been blessed by God was known by his (Jesus) disciples that it was not of his own glory but given by God.

     So according to the above verse what should have been  the preaching of the church? It should have been propagated as ‘O! People believe  God , who has bestowed all things to Jesus, then  you will be saved. If you want the blessings and love of God, just as  Jesus had been blessed with, you should believe Jesus as your ideal person , and follow the  way of Jesus, then you will be saved”. Had the Preaching of church been in this manner then the people can get the good change in their conduct thereby  automatically  peace  and moral values prevail in the society.  And observe  in the following  verse what Jesus says about this matter.

 Take my yoke upon yo, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart; and ye shall find rest unto your souls. -Matthew 11:29 

      According to the above verse it is obvious that only when  we understand the reality of Jesus and change our way of life accordingly then it is possible to get the rest means peace. Let us see what was the belief of  Peter, who was one of the early chief  disciples, and was made the leader of Jesus’ mission and was blessed by Jesus.

The God of Abraham, and of Issac, and of Jacob, the God of our fathers, hath glorified his Son Jesus. -Acts 3:13

     We understand clearly from the above verse that what type of belief the early disciples had in Jesus. In this verse he(Peter) says clearly that  the Almighty Jehovah who is God of the great holy persons, had glorified His son Jesus. Therefore according to the analysis of the above verse it is evident  that the early  disciples did not have the faith that Jesus was the glorious God as  Church preaches.  So God may bestow the true belief as explained by Jesus. - Amen.
