Summary Statements on the Synoptic Gospels I.  Jesus' estimate of human sin in the Synoptics: 1) Sin is universal;  2)  Sin is internal; 3) Sin is enslavement, 4) Sin is rebellion; and 5)  Sin merits condemnation. II. On the Death of Christ: 1) Jesus approached death as a voluntary act; 2) the death of Jesus is directly related to  the forgiveness of sins; 3) Jesus saw his death a vicarious act--an act which he did on  behalf of others;  4)  Jesus regarded himself a substitute, in fulfillment of the  Suffering Servant Songs of Isaiah; and 5) His death has an eschatological aspect=-it is  necessary as a prelude for the fulfillment of the Kingdom of God. Hence the Kingdom  may be regarded as that community redeemed through the death of Christ. III. The Holy Spirit: 1) Many major events of Jesus' ministry are specifically connected with the activity of  the Holy Spirit; including: incarnation, baptism, temptation, exorcisms, and the  healing and preaching ministries; 2) In his teaching, Jesus prepared his disciples for a  new age of the Spirit which would follow His death and resurrection; 3) it is clear that  the OT forms the background of the teaching on the Holy Spirit as found in the Synop- tics; 4) As to the matter of this relative silence of the synoptics on the Holy Spirit, it  is clear that Jesus need not give elaborate teaching-since it is given by the Spirit via  Pentecost; note also that this relative silence is particularly difficult for form critics  who assume that the early church consistently wrote its experience back into the Synoptics.

What students are saying

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
