IN THE GOSPEL OF LIBERATION

The Holy Bible's True Description of Jesus the Christ

This Biblical description of the actual person of Jesus is foremost one of the most important narratives in the Gospel of Liberation. Without knowledge of the truth, one can never become truly liberated.

PART 2 - His Ministry

During his life and ministry, Jesus walked the land of Galilee, Jerusalem and Judea preaching the gospel of peace, love, and righteousness. He did not charge money for his sermons or gatherings and he did not have to con anyone to attend. He did not sell his teachings as books nor did he sell holy water, scarves or cups that he owned. When he was not preaching the word of the Kingdom, he was healing people of sickness and disease by calling on their faith in God.

Though Jesus was gentle and merciful toward the crowds of people, he was more aggressive and dogmatic toward the leaders of the churches and synagogues. In St. Matthew 23:2, 3 he says; "The scribes and the Pharisees sit in Moses' seat: All therefore whatsoever they bid you observe, that observe and do; but do not ye after their works: for they say, and do not." He warned the people to do what the Bible says do, but do not do what the leaders were doing because they were not practicing what they actually preached.

He often called the leaders hypocrites, serpents, and a generation of vipers. In verse 25 he says, "Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye make clean the outside of the cup and of the platter, but within they are full of extortion and excess." Jesus taught the people that the church leaders looked like leaders but they were in fact, full of deception and crookedness, seeking after riches and wealth and to increase their profitability at the expense of the poor.

As a result, the leaders accused Jesus of heresy and sedition and even accused him of making himself equal with God, which caused them to bring him before King Herod for a trial so he could be prosecuted and put to death. His disciples tried to convince Jesus to fight against the leaders and the soldiers of the Roman army but Jesus refused and told them; "Put up again thy sword into his place: for all they that take the sword shall perish with the sword," St. Matthew 26:52, therefore teaching nonviolence against a violent and aggressive government.

In many of his sermons and parables he taught the people to be humble, content with their wages and to not seek after riches and wealth. He did not encourage people on prosperity and financial growth. He did not blame the poor for being poor but taught them the truth of inequality, oppression and injustice, as he spoke against rich men and unfair rulers of society. He taught the people to treat their neighbors fairly and to remember the poor and the sick, and the widows and fatherless children. He did not teach survival of the fittest, self-centeredness or every man for himself, but he taught community, and love toward your neighbors and toward strangers.

Most importantly, Jesus never taught that there were one race or nation of people better than any others or that one nation should serve another as slaves and servants. This concept is a lie created by a people who desire superiority over other people for the sake of greed and power. It is not condoned by Jesus and was never ordained by God as an institution considered normal by nature.

Jesus identifies with the lowest of the people on earth and come to them as a deliverer and savior. The circumstances surrounding salvation come from cruel and wicked men and nations who oppress, afflict, and persecute the poor and weak of the world. Those who believe in the words and powers of Christ are therefore delivered from the oppressor through a lifestyle that teaches them to overcome the evils of the world and of spiritual wickedness in high places.
