Parable Of The Master And Servant
The Parable of the Master and Servant
Parable of the Master and Servant
is a parable told by Jesus
Jesus
in the New Testament, found in Luke Luke 17:7-10. The parable teaches that when somebody "has done what God expects, he or she is only doing his or her duty."[1] Therefore, being rewarded means doing more than expected.Contents1 Narrative 2 Interpretation 3 See also 4 ReferencesNarrative[edit] The parable is as follows:But who is there among you, having a servant plowing or keeping sheep, that will say, when he comes in from the field, "Come immediately and sit down at the table," and will not rather tell him, "Prepare my supper, clothe yourself properly, and serve me, while I eat and drink. Afterward you shall eat and drink"? Does he thank that servant because he did the things that were commanded? I think not. Even so you also, when you have done all the things that are commanded you, say, "We are unworthy servants

Baptism Of Jesus
The baptism of Jesus
Jesus
is described in the gospels of Matthew, Mark and Luke. John's gospel does not directly describe Jesus' baptism. Most modern theologians view the baptism of Jesus
Jesus
by John the Baptist as a historical event to which a high degree of certainty can be assigned.[1][2][3][4][5] Along with the crucifixion of Jesus, most biblical scholars view it as one of the two historically certain facts about him, and often use it as the starting point for the study of the historical Jesus.[6] The baptism is one of the five major milestones in the gospel narrative of the life of Jesus, the others being the Transfiguration, Crucifixion, Resurrection, and Ascension.[7][8] Most Christian denominations view the baptism of Jesus
Jesus
as an important event and a basis for the Christian rite of baptism (see also Acts 19:1–7)

Historicity Of Jesus
The historicity of Jesus
Jesus
concerns the degree to which sources show Jesus
Jesus
of Nazareth existed as a historical figure. It concerns the issue of "what really happened", based upon the context of the time and place, and also the issue of how modern observers can come to know "what really happened".[1] A second issue is closely tied to historical research practices and methodologies for analyzing the reliability of primary sources and other historical evidence

Race And Appearance Of Jesus
The race and appearance of Jesus
Jesus
has been a topic of discussion since the days of early Christianity. There are no firsthand accounts of Jesus' physical appearance, although some authors have suggested that physical descriptions may have been removed from the Bible at some point to emphasize his universality. Most scholars consequently believe that Jesus
Jesus
was similar in appearance to the modern inhabitants of the Middle East, due to the Bible (and other historical accounts) unequivocally referring to him as a Galilean Israelite. Various theories about the race of Jesus
Jesus
have been proposed and debated.[1][2] By the Middle Ages, a number of documents, generally of unknown or questionable origin, had been composed and were circulating with details of the appearance of Jesus

Virgin Birth Of Jesus
The virgin birth of Jesus
Jesus
is the belief that Jesus
Jesus
was conceived in the womb of his mother Mary through the Holy Spirit
Holy Spirit
without the agency of a human father and born while Mary was still a virgin.[1] The New Testament references are Matthew 1:18-25 and Luke 1:26-38. It is believed by Christians to follow the prophetic message in Isaiah 7:14. It is not expressly mentioned elsewhere in the Christian scriptures,[2] and "the modern scholarly consensus is that the doctrine of the virgin birth rests on a very slim historical foundation."[3] Muslims also believe in the virgin birth of Jesus.[4] The virgin birth was universally accepted in the Christian church by the 2nd century and, except for some minor sects, was not seriously challenged until the 18th century

Nativity Of Jesus

Jesus
was born in Bethlehem
Bethlehem

Herod the Great
to a betrothed virgin whose name was Mary.[1] They also differ slightly in content, because they are two separate accounts, given by two individuals, thus each includes some details that the other chose to omit; however, this fact does not strongly evidence contradiction (as some believe) and the differences are not major. Matthew does not mention the census, annunciation to the shepherds or presentation in the Temple, does not give the name of the angel that appeared to Joseph to foretell the birth

Twelve Apostles

Jesus
in the 1st century AD, the apostles were his closest followers and became the primary teachers of the gospel message of Jesus. The word disciple is sometimes used interchangeably with apostle; for instance, the Gospel of John
