In Luke: “Father, forgive them, for they know not what they do ” “Truly, I say to you, today you will be with me in paradise (in response to one of the two thieves crucified next to him) “Father, into your hands I commit my spirit” (last words)
In John 10:27–28 Jesus states that: “My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me: and I give unto them eternal life ; and they shall never perish.” This refers to the personal, heart to heart relationship the Christian is expected to have with Jesus .
God, we thank you that you never leave us, that you never forsake us, but you love us. We trust you, and pray this in your name. Amen.”
The essential uses of the name of God the Father in the New Testament are Theos (θεός the Greek term for God ), Kyrios (i.e. Lord in Greek) and Patēr (πατήρ i.e. Father in Greek). The Aramaic word “Abba” (אבא), meaning “Father” is used by Jesus in Mark 14:36 and also appears in Romans 8:15 and Galatians 4:6.
Jesus does not have a last name. Last names were not common in those times. Christ is not a name, but a title. Christ means “anointed” or “Messiah”, so Jesus became the “ Christ ” or “Messiah” when he got baptized at the age of 30.
Jesus taught his followers to pray: “Thy kingdom come on earth as in heaven .” From as early as the third century, some Christian teachers tried to blend this with types of the Platonic belief, generating the idea of “leaving earth and going to heaven ,” which became mainstream by the Middle Ages.
The afterlife (also referred to as life after death , the world to come, or reincarnation) is an existence in which the essential part of an individual’s identity or their stream of consciousness continues to live after the death of their physical body.
They thought of God as eternal , in the sense that he is timeless or atemporal. Now, the dominant view among philosophers is that God is temporal. His eternal nature is thought of as being everlasting rather than timeless. He never came into existence and he will never go out of existence but he exists within time.
Grant to them eternal rest. Let light perpetual shine upon them. May his soul and the souls of all the departed, through the mercy of God , rest in peace. Amen.
Remember: hearing is thought to be the last sense to go in the dying process, so never assume the person is unable to hear you . Even when a person is unconscious or semi-conscious, they might be able to respond with faint pressure from their thumb, or twitch a toe.
The last rites , in Catholicism, are the last prayers and ministrations given to an individual of the faith, when possible, shortly before death . They may be administered to those awaiting execution, mortally injured, or terminally ill. Last rites cannot be performed on people who have already died.
In the Bible, Yahweh is the one true God who creates the heavens and the earth and then chooses a certain people, the Israelites, as his own.
Some Christian literature translates abba to “daddy”, suggesting that it is a childlike, intimate term for one’s father . The name Barabbas in the New Testament comes from the Aramaic phrase Bar Abba meaning “son of the father “.
During his lifetime, Jesus himself didn’t call himself God and didn’t consider himself God , and none of his disciples had any inkling at all that he was God . You do find Jesus calling himself God in the Gospel of John, or the last Gospel.
