Jesus the Anointed One

Chapter 4

Introduction

 

The word Messiah is derived from the  Hebrew word mashach which is used of anointing. In Isaiah 61:1 this word teaches that the anointing was a symbol of the Holy Spirit. By which Jesus was anointed for the ministry and life. Lk. 4:18; Acts. 10:38.

The Uniqueness of Jesus

1.  No word he spoke needed modification. No extra word, no exaggeration, no half truth, no mis–statement, no quick words.

2.  He never apologized for word or action, never asked for pardon. apologizing is good; yet he did nothing to apologize.

    Hi Henry

    These are not the lost books of the Bible as you say, they are not books which were in the Bible then lost.
    They are what should be called “The Not Included Books”

    They were known at the time of compiling the Bible they did not become part of the cannon because they had no special relevance or significance.

    If they were lost like you say, you would not have found them, let alone been able to download them.

    The Roman Catholic Church has not included them in their Bible either, even though they have books which do not appear in the Protestant Bible. (such as the book of The Macabees).

    The Scriptures contain the authoritative rule of faith and practice, the standard of doctrine and duty. A book is said to be of canonical authority when it has a right to take a place with the other books which contain a revelation of the Divine will.
    Such a right does not arise from any ecclesiastical authority, but from the evidence of the inspired authorship of the book, such as a list of writings, esp sacred writings of an author that are officially recognized as genuine
    The canonical (i.e., the inspired) books of the Old and New Testaments, are a complete rule, and the only rule, of faith and practice. They contain the whole supernatural revelation of God to men.

    Don’t get engulfed in reading these other books, there is more than enough for you, using the Bible only.
