Jesus Of Nazareth Essay

2070 words - 8 pages

Introduction In this essay, I am writing an account in formal English, but report format. In it the last five major events; The Last Supper, The Arrest of Jesus, The death of Judas, The Crucifixion, and The resurrection of Christ's life as seen in the video, Jesus of Nazareth. I will compare it to the four biblical accounts of Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John. Relate them to the main mass. I will then end my essay with my conclusion of what I thought about these five major events, and state what I did and did not like about them.The Last Supper The breaking of the bread is listed in all of the Gospels in one way or another"¦in the Audio-visual; Jesus sits down and tells his disciples to eat the bread for it's his body. Told them to drink the wine, it is his blood. In Matthew; Jesus took a loaf of bread, blessed it and said, "Take, eat this is my body." Took a cup after giving thanks said, "Drink from it, all of you for this is my blood of the covenant which is poured out for many for the forgiveness of sins." Mark's summary of what happens is similar; "Jesus took a loaf of bread, blessed it. He broke it, and said, "Take; this is my body." Took a cup gave thanks and said, "This is my blood of the covenant which is poured out for many." Luke states that; Jesus took a cup gave thanks and said, "Take this and divide it among yourselves for I tell you that from now on I will not drink of the fruit of the vine until the Kingdom of Heaven comes. Then he took a loaf of bread, gave thanks and said; "This is my body, which is given up for you. DO this in remembrance of me." But then he took another cup and said, "This cup that is poured out for you is the new covenant in my blood." John does not state anything about the Last Supper but he writes at least two pages on what the body and blood of Christ is"¦in the Bread from Heaven.Arrest of Jesus In the movie, all of the disciples are sleeping; Jesus is talking to God asking him to let him be. Judas shows up and gives Jesus a hug. The guards go to apprehend Jesus, the disciples wake up asking and demanding what is going on. They get mad at Judas. The movie never showed Peter cutting off the ear of the Highest Priests slave. Matthew states that Judas shows up with a large crowd with swords ad clubs. He kisses Jesus saying, "Greetings Rabbi." A man with Jesus cut off the ear of the slave to the Highest Priest. Mark has the same thing only instead of Judas saying "Greetings Rabbi." He says, "Rabbi." Mark also does not mention who cut off the ear of the slave. Luke does not mention that Judas says anything, it just states, that when Judas went to kiss Jesus, Jesus replies. "Judas, is it with a kiss that you are betraying the son of man?" Does not mention the guilty party of cutting the ear of the slave off. John; This story is completely different because Judas does nothing. John says that the guards come and Jesus asks, "Who are you looking...
