Transcript of Christianity

BY: Lee Brackman, Michael Whitson,
Samson Joseph, Chris "Breezy" Cayard CHRISTIANITY The incarnation was when Jesus became man. He was born of the virgin Mary who had no sin, which in turn gave him no sin. THE PASCHAL MYSTERY The Paschal mystery is a name for the passion, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ THE TEACHINGS OF JESUS PRAYER THE INCARNATION The Passion The Death "THE PRODIGAL SON" PARABLES THE GOLDEN RULE THE BEATITUDES INTERVIEW ABOUT INCARNATION What it means
to us as Christians FACTS ABOUT INCARNATION Video Different Types of Prayer 6 P's of prayer Adoration Blessing Petition Contrition Intercession Thanksgiving Why we chose the video- THE TEACHINGS OF JESUS -The Beatitudes are rules that Jesus gave to his disciples on the Sermon on the mount.
-These rules were very rewarding for poor people who were struggling at the time as well as today. PARABLES The Passion The Death FREQUENTLY ASKED Qs ABOUT CHRISTIANITY What does it mean to be a christian? - A follower of Jesus Christ through faith.
Are Jesus and God the same being? - They are of the same substance, but Jesus is both true God and true man.
Do christians worship Mary? -No, we venerate Mary, which means we honor her, but do not worship. -As christians, we believe that Jesus became man to be more like us so we could be able to relate to him. - This is the time in which Jesus become both fully man and fully God.
-Do not think of Jesus as half God and half man.
-He is full God and full man. -The passion is the first stage of the paschal mystery.
-It refers to all of the suffering he had to endure until he was crucified
- He was beaten, whipped, crowned with thorns, and carried his cross to the top of Mount Golgotha. -Jesus died on the cross in order to save us from our sins. -Before He died he cried out in pain and said "My God, my God why have you forsaken me.
-This shows Jesus' human side The Resurrection -When Jesus rose from the dead he saved us all from sin.
-Many people did not believe he had actually risen until he appeared to them. 11 Jesus continued: “There was a man who had two sons. 12 The younger one said to his father, ‘Father, give me my share of the estate.’ So he divided his property between them.13 “Not long after that, the younger son got together all he had, set off for a distant country and there squandered his wealth in wild living. 14 After he had spent everything, there was a severe famine in that whole country, and he began to be in need. 15 So he went and hired himself out to a citizen of that country, who sent him to his fields to feed pigs. 16 He longed to fill his stomach with the pods that the pigs were eating, but no one gave him anything.17 “When he came to his senses, he said, ‘How many of my father’s hired servants have food to spare, and here I am starving to death! 18 I will set out and go back to my father and say to him: Father, I have sinned against heaven and against you. 19 I am no longer worthy to be called your son; make me like one of your hired servants.’ 20 So he got up and went to his father.“But while he was still a long way off, his father saw him and was filled with compassion for him; he ran to his son, threw his arms around him and kissed him.21 “The son said to him, ‘Father, I have sinned against heaven and against you. I am no longer worthy to be called your son.’22 “But the father said to his servants, ‘Quick! Bring the best robe and put it on him. Put a ring on his finger and sandals on his feet. 23 Bring the fattened calf and kill it. Let’s have a feast and celebrate. 24 For this son of mine was dead and is alive again; he was lost and is found.’ So they began to celebrate.25 “Meanwhile, the older son was in the field. When he came near the house, he heard music and dancing. 26 So he called one of the servants and asked him what was going on. 27 ‘Your brother has come,’ he replied, ‘and your father has killed the fattened calf because he has him back safe and sound.’28 “The older brother became angry and refused to go in. So his father went out and pleaded with him. 29 But he answered his father, ‘Look! All these years I’ve been slaving for you and never disobeyed your orders. Yet you never gave me even a young goat so I could celebrate with my friends. 30 But when this son of yours who has squandered your property with prostitutes comes home, you kill the fattened calf for him!’31 “‘My son,’ the father said, ‘you are always with me, and everything I have is yours. 32 But we had to celebrate and be glad, because this brother of yours was dead and is alive again; he was lost and is found.’” -Parables are stories that Jesus tells to get across a religious message
-Jesus used lots of parables throughout his life. -Jesus once told his disciples that you must love others as you would love yourself.

-This is called the Golden Rule, and is a rule that all Christians need to follow Jesus, instead of teaching through the form of lecturing, but through the creative form of parables.
We chose the Prodigal son because it is a basic illustration of how Jesus portrayed his ideas through stories, called parables. -We chose to interview someone to show a real life experience of what a typical christian would have to say. -Giving glory to God. -Proclaiming the goodness of God. -Asking God for things we need. -Asking God for forgiveness -Asking God for the needs of others. -Prayers of gratitude to God for all he has given us.
-Eucharist- Thanksgiving that we offer Christ.
-Praise- worshiping God for his Holiness Place Period of Time Posture Prescence Passage Persistence Guidelines of Prayer -A comfortable place to pray. -The time of day that is best for you to pray at. -A respectful, yet comfortable posture to pray in. -The rule to pray as if God is present -The incorporation of scripture references into your prayer -Focus on prayer, DO NOT get distracted. -The reason we chose this video was because it explained some of the misconceptions about prayer, and it has basic instructions for the people who have never prayed.
