Part A-According to a major amount of people Jesus was considered a Christian but this is false. Jesus died on the cross for us when he was crucified by ancient romans, Christianity is based on his sacrifice for the human race.
One reason the proves Jesus was a Jew is that Jesus had a similar routine to Jews like being circumcised 8 days after they are born in the temple (Luke2:21-22). Jesus would also travel to the temple of the Jews to the observe knowledge on Moses’s teachings (Mark 11:15-19).That shows how Jesus believed in the teaching of past prophets (Mathew 5:17), Jesus also did take time to celebrate the time of Saboth and the Jewish custom (Luke 4:16), Jesus also celebrated the Passover like any other Jewish person would.The statements that I have presented substantiate that Jesus was a Jew and he did follow the Jewish actions and beliefs but he respects the customs all religions.Part B-All followers of Jesus strongly believe that he in fact is the son of God.Numerous sections in the bible support this statement like (Mark 16:6) “Don’t be alarmed,” he said. “You are looking for Jesus the Nazarene, who was crucified.

He has risen! He is not here. See the place where they laid him”. This statement represents his power of resurrection, his most well know work of resurrection is him rising from the dead after the crucifixion occurred. Another action performed by Jesus proves he is the son of god, he fed 5,000 people with 5 loaves of bread and 2 fish this shows his miraculous powers of god. Another action is when he fixed the site of a blind man by putting his spit into the mans eyes it does sound a little bit silly but this is because no one can do this except the son of God.The last reason why Jesus is the son of God is that he has permission and authority to inform people of God by sending his twelve apostles to the world.Part C- The way i feel about the picture that I have shown is that it reflects exactly on why Jesus is a role model.
Jesus is a teacher, everyone wants to follow in the footsteps of Jesus because he is the man who does no wrong. He isn’t selfish, he is the complete opposite of that he cares for everyone more than himself hence the crucifixion. (Philippians 2:3-4) “Do nothing from selfishness or empty conceit, but with humility of mind regard one another as more important than yourselves; do not merely look out for your own personal interests, but also for the interests of others”.This passage in the bible is exactly what Jesus followed he looked out for his people and helped them through their struggles and their problems. He wants others to be happy and he teaches for people to follow in his footsteps as being a person for others is much more rewarding than caring for your self. The above states that how Jesus was a man for others and that he puts others infringed of him and this is why he is such a big role model for his followers.
