Key events in the life of Jesus (2)

We are following on from our previous post. If you have missed it click here .

Firstly we are going to start by looking at event where Jesus fed the 5000 people. He did this with 5 small loaves of bread and two fish. He created here an abundance of food for everyone that was following Him to the mountain. 

The Gospel makes mention of 5000 men, but we are later told in Matthew that there were women and children too. The estimates for the whole crowd have gone up to 20,000! 

Imagine feeding that many people with barely any food- miraculous right!

Next we are exploring the event labelled as the Transfiguration. This refers to the 'change of form', and the situation where Jesus changed right in front of Peter, James and John into a reflection of His true nature. He radiated light and exhibited His divine glory, His face changed, His clothes changed- it was so indescribable that even the Gospel writers had troubling pinning it down, resulting to using metaphors such as 'lightning', 'sun' or 'light'.

Another significant event in the life of Jesus is the rising of Lazarus , the brother of Mary and Martha of Bethany who was Jesus' personal friend. He was called into the home of Lazarus to heal and help him. Jesus did not immediately go there and instead waited for the moment where Lazarus died. Thereafter, He raised him from death showing yet again His power and supremacy over death.

Lastly, in this article we will be looking at the triumphal entry into Jerusalem. The crowds of people that waited to see and greet Jesus laid down palm leaves on the ground for Him to walk over. 

This grand entry into Jerusalem on the back of a donkey, as a humble King, fulfilled the Prophecy of the Old Testament of Zachariah and repeated in John 12:15- "See your King is coming, seated on a donkey's colt".

We will continue to explore the significant events of Jesus' life in our next and last article of this series.

Please keep your eye out and come back to join me in reminiscing over Jesus' beautiful life!
