  • Billy Budd As A Christ Figure
    902 words
    On first glance, Billy Budd is little more than a sea story involving a sailor wrongly accused of mutiny. However, upon closer examination, one observes that Melville s novel possesses a deeper significance. Melville presents the protagonist, Billy as a handsome, young sailor. Nonetheless, Billy Budd can be seen as a Christ-figure through his experiences with Captain Vere, Claggert and his crewmembers aboard the Bellipotent. As the novel begins, Melville characterizes Billy as Christ-like figure...

    Preexistence of Christ Advanced Information The p reincarnate existence of Christ may be 'only a simple, contemplative inference backwards from the spiritual glory of the present Christ' (Deissmann); certainly its clearest expression is found in later writing reflecting upon the rudimentary messianic, even adoption ist, assessment of Christ in the primitive Christian community (Acts 2: 22 - 23; 10: 38). Yet preexistence is at least implied in words of Jesus himself: 'The son of man came'; the ow...

  • The Gospel Of Mark

    Jesus Christ lived a very full, if short, life. He did and accomplished more in his thirty years than many men do in twice that. The gospels each tell their versions of his life. Of the four, I found the gospel of Mark to be the most interesting. I enjoy the style of writing in this gospel more than the others. I feel it gives a better summary of the events in Christ's life. Whereas the other gospels tend to get bogged down with parables or spend too much time on specific events, the gospel of ...

    Chapter 10 verse 45 of the Gospel of Mark portrays Jesus Christ as a servant, "For the Son of Man came not to be served but to serve." Reading the rest of the verse, the idea that not only did Christ come to be a servant, but he came to be a suffering servant comes to light, "and to give his life a ransom for many." The call of the Christian, in accordance with its basic conviction to be Christ-like, translates here into a call to be a servant. Christ charges his disciples with this call in Mark...
  • Sargeant Christ Hughes Town

Hughes gives Sargeant the additional burden of being an African-American in the "white" part of town; therefore, he faces the perfectly plausible obstacles of shelters that "drew the color line" and racist police officers who beat and imprison him. But despite the...
