Evan Koczan Mr. Tortorici Religion 12/8/15 The Identity of Jesus In the Catholic teaching on the Trinity, Jesus makes claims of divinity. This is  basically the most important concept of the Catholic teaching. If Jesus did not make  claims of divinity, then everything would be false in their teachings about Jesus being  God’s son. The argument could definitely also be made that all of Jesus’s teachings are  false as well. Jesus is the basis of the Catholic teachings. The Trinity consists of the  Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. “The Son” refers to Jesus and it is very important  that Jesus claims to be divine otherwise it would be hard to consider him God’s Son since God himself is divine. Jesus also plays the main role in Salvation History by fulfilling all  of God’s covenants. Jesus was able to fulfill these promises made by God due to his  divinity. The identity of Jesus also relies on his divinity otherwise he would not be seen  as a God Man, he would either be seen as a Bad Man or a Mad Man. The whole Catholic  Church relies on Jesus’s claims to divinity. Salvation History consists of the preparation stage and the fulfillment stage of  God’s saving of humanity. The Trinity… the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit are  what make up the preparation and fulfillment stages. The Father reveals His Name and  Will to the prophets and promises that the Messiah will come. The Messiah ends up being God’s Son, Jesus. Jesus is a type of Adam since he successfully completes the task that

Adam was originally supposed to accomplish.  Jesus does this by performing miracles,  prophesizing things and presenting the teachings of God. He completes his role in

    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.
