This morning, we had Chinese RCIA @ St. Pats. I am very glad that there were 3 newcomers. We learnt about the Life of Jesus today.
We went through the "pop-up" book on Jesus Christ.
I talked about many things while going through the book with the participants:
- The 4 Gospels (Mathew, Mark, Luke, & John)
- The Synoptic Gospels (Mathew, Mark, & Luke)
- The parallels & contrasts in the Gospel of St. Luke & the Arts of the Apostles
- The 7 Signs @ St. John's Gospel
- The Miracles of Jesus
- The Manifestation of Jesus to the Gentiles
- The hidden life of Jesus
- The contrast between Peter & Judas
- The Passion of Christ
- The 40 Days after the Resurrection
Here is a very brief summary of the Functions & Teachings of Jesus Christ...
Christ is King (to govern), Prophet (to teach), & Priest (to sanctify).
Essential Teachings of Christ.....
- the Cross
- the Beatitudes
- Son of God, Savior
- the Church
