The four dimensions of the ministry of Jesus Christ

In this long journey of life, I have searched for a spiritual interpretation of Christ’s mission on earth, his involvement in our lives and if he really fulfilled the intended mission. This is a chronological account of various acts of Christ: preaching, teaching, healing, and the overall impact.

I have tried to distinguish the four main areas for simplicity and understanding. These were basically the areas that were the highlights of his mission: Christ himself assigned his work to the three main categories, as mentioned above, the fourth being the discretion of the observer as to whether the previous three.

Christ’s teachings were limited to the basics of the Kingdom of God: what it will be like for believers after the earthly kingdom. It is made up largely of biblical interpretation of preexisting teachings of the laws of Moses, the laws of the land at the time, the foundations of the law such as the Sabbath, the parables, sayings, beatitudes, and other analogies.

Preaching, on the other hand, was limited to the conviction that Jesus had in his followers about Kingdom matters. Jesus emphasized the importance of preparing for the Kingdom of Heaven through baptism, honest living, good neighborliness, and love and fear of the Lord. The preaching was more about the importance of living a sinless life and how to avoid temptations; most of the time, teaching, preaching, and healing went hand in hand.

Healing the sick, maimed, deaf, and demon-possessed was another method Jesus used; all four were interdependent on each other. I will focus on each one in turn in my subsequent articles as I refer to us “The Continuation and Chronology of the Life and Times of Jesus Christ.” We are called to participate in his Kingdom, because we are his children. To understand his kingdom, we must look at the areas he emphasized and see if there are gems of glory that we can learn, practice, and share about the life and works of this great man.

It is my sincere wish that this is not in vain but a fruitful effort to get to know him better. Christ wants us to know him better, and what surer way to know him than by studying his works? Feel completely smitten as you communicate with me on this sacrilegious mission. Open your heart to receive his word like no other.
