The key to this whole subject should be spiritual,we all should live spiritually and not be divided by a religion that is the point and what Jesus showed us is the key for a good life he walked among all the classes, the down trodden,the drunk,the meek all people, spiritual,nonspiritual, and taught he had no picks, one was no better than the other. The baglady means just as much to Jesus as the Priest,Pastor,Minister etc. No one is above another,there was no religion when Jesus visited these Temples etc. He was checking what they were teaching the people,it is OK together together,to pray or whatever but there is no religion named in the Bible saying this is what jesus practiced or this is the best one to follow,you follow the path and footsteps of jesus and how can you go wrong...Peace
Of course there was Religion,(causing as much upset as it still does now) at the time of Jesus! HE WAS A JEW,AND LOVED HIS FAITH.But was disenchanted at the way the Elders (Pharisees) were conducting affairs in the Temple,and that glorious story,which is my favourite about Him,where He enters the Temple in a terrible rage,and overturns the tables,saying "You have turned MY Fathers House into a Den of Thieves" shows how He wasn't the "flavour of the month any more" But wasn't that a wonderful thing to do?
So don't forget,people,He WAS a JEW. He was also a RABBI. Which
means Teacher...Right? And what did He teach?How to be a good living JEW.that's what.NOT Christianity. That came much later.In my opinion,mores the pity
Her endeth the lesson.Peace to you ALL my Brothers and Sisters!
That's a tricky worded question, I think! First, Jesus perpetuated (fulfilled) Jewish Law which is obvious based on His teachings. Second, Jesus was not "religious" by definition. Religion basically means a set of tenets based on Deity or a teacher. So, religious would mean a follower of such tenets from Deity or a teacher. Jesus was (is) DEITY! God cannot Himself be religious...at least by man's finite, arbitrary definition.
He did not follow any one religion. Many religions were based on where people lived at the time or what the king or so called high people wanted you to worship. If he was so into his faith would he not want his apostles to believe the same faith. He came from god who as we know it has no set religion
Jesus was born a jew, so he followed the teachings of Moses as told to him by God
Jesus didn't follow "religion". He did the will of His Father in Heaven. He had faith in His Father in Heaven and relied on the power of His Father in Heaven. This is not "religion".
He was a Jew he was raised into Judaisms
Religion is not what jesus came for. He came as redeemer, he bring us salvation for us who crisscross our life with sins. He said "I come not to bring peace" but rather he said "a son
against his father, a daughter against her mother, son in-law against his father-in law, and so on. In short he brings division. Our faith and belief divide us into different religion. It is what we believed and what we do that is important.
The jew refer to abraham as their father. Jesus said, " before abraham is born I am.
Therefore if we asked what religion did jesus follow is the religion of abraham. Or abrahamic
religion. The first religion before Judaism, christianity and islamic. Circumcision is the covenant
of abraham to god and so with moses. Jesus was presented in the temple after 40 days from his birth, the practice of the jew from the time of Abraham to up to the birth of jesus. Jesus came to fulfil the prophecy, so he follows the existing tradition from abraham. Remember this: No baptism, no holy spirit, no holy spirit, no redemption, no, salvation. That is the the mission of coming of jesus. Amen.
If you where fostered to a black family and you where white, would that make you black?...NO! Same applies to Jesus. Just because he was raised by Jews, does not mean he is one. Being a Christian is a "act of Faith" not a "practice of Religion". Jesus stated that "Religion" would split the church. Religion such as denominations, in which there are to many to mention. Church?.. As in a congregation of believers who worship God, not a four cornered building. The Church is in heart... A combined congregation and ministry. To anyone who thinks opposite, maybe you should not take this personal but actually read the Bible. Lets not be ignorant.
Jesus was Jewish born of a faithful Jewish mother and father and practiced Judaism until he instituted what later came to be known by divine providence: Christianity. Christ means Messiah which means anointed to be king. It was prophesied he would replace Judaism and faithful jews were waiting this messiah to be born, so when he was finally born in bethlehem of the family line of King David faithful Jews who studied the Hebrew scriptures were able to recognize him. Good question..years ago I wondered the same thing.
Jesus was an exemplary Jewish person, he read the Hebrew scriptures and quoted them from a very young age (12 yrs old).
Jesus was born a Jew and practiced the religion until he changed the world!
The answer your looking for are simply found in James 1:26-27
Jesus was a Jew, in fact he was a rabbi.
Jew (adjective) means a Jewish resident (of Judaea).
Jesus was not a Jew. He was not a resident of Judaea.
Jesus was a Nazarene (a city in Galilee), thus the title: Jesus of Nazareth.
Jesus was a Galilean. He was a resident of Galilee.
The bible does not tell of Jesus following a religion, but it also does not tell of him breaking the Jewish faith (though he did commit acts against the temple which can be seen as breaking Jewish law, if not faith) Jesus was born a Jew, from a Jewish mother and so in Jewish law is a Jew. In Catholic (read early proto-Christianity) law/canon he was never confirmed or baptised and so never entered the House of God.
Jesus was a Liberal Jewish Baptist Pentecostal. He fulfilled the Law of the Old Testament, was baptized by John the Baptist, and the Holy Spirit like a dove descended on him. There is no favoritism, all are equal and all are free, within the framework of what Jesus taught and commanded. The Bible does not label Jesus with the name of any Religion. Acts 11:25-26 says that the disciples were first called Christians at Antioch. Thus was coined the term that the followers of what Jesus preached were to be called.
