  • Rama And Luke
    646 words
    The reason myths are studied in today's culture are because the stories are about the human condition, not about time or place. It is this versatility of myths, that allows Far East's Ramayana to be mirrored in many ways by a far away galaxy's Star Wars. The Ramayana's lead hero is Vishnu, in the human form of Rama. The birth of Rama is divined by priests. The goal of Rama will be to defeat the evil Ravana. Star Wars starts in a similar fashion with the jedi legend of a chosen one, who can bring...

  • Luke's Aunt And Uncle
    571 words
    'The broken globe'; by Henry Kreis el tells the story of a father and a son torn apart by their differing views of the world.

  • One Sabbath Jesus And His Disciples
    616 words

The Sabbath day is God's day of relaxation after he finished the creation of the earth. Matthew, Mark, and Luke each tell about the Sabbath dispute, but each gospel tells their story differently. Matthew chapter 12 begins with Jesus walking through the cornfields with his disciples when they became hungry. Because of their h...
  • Cool Hand Luke
    513 words
    Never Say Die! Of all the films that were released in 1967 few had the power and stamina of displaying detailed characterizations in the manner of which 'Cool Hand Luke' did. Its strong message of individuality was a welcomed choice in the 20th century's most turbulent decade, which of course were the 1960's. Based on the novel by Donn Pearce and adapted for the screen by Pearce and Frank R. Pierson and Oscar nominated for Screenplay Adaptation, 'Cool Hand Luke' opens with a lazy and most effect...
  • Cases Euthanasia
    1,120 words
    Euthanasia After years of debate the issue of euthanasia has sparked my interest. Euthanasia should be legalized here in the United States. As we contemplate legalizing euthanasia many issues should be taken into consideration. One issue that should be taken into consideration is by religious orders. I feel a religion must support the decision of any person in their congregation who is about to die in whatever choices he or she makes. Euthanasia is a type of suicide that is intended to benefit t...

For example, the authors wanted to show readers that Jesus was more holy than the original author set him out to be. Also, the authors...
  • Written As Some Of Luke's Passages
    495 words
    The crucifixion periscope is one of the most read and studied stories of the gospels, second only to the story of the resurrection. Luke's presentation of the darkest day in Christianity is appropriately not as poetic and literary elegant as some of his other writings, yet dramatic. He stresses some common Luk an themes of forgiveness, prayer and universalism. The setting is a place they call The Skull, outside of Jerusalem. It was a place of death. Many criminals had been crucified at Golgotha ...

  • Campbell's Archetypes Of The Hero Story
    1,007 words
    For the last quarter of a century, the world has been entranced by the vision of George Lucas. His famed Star Wars trilogy, arguably the greatest movie series in history, has had an incalculable effect on society.

Lucas and Campbell were very close friends, and apparently, Lucas was a fan of Campbell's work, particularly his studies on archetypes. In fact, the sto...

The film's musical score, casting, and cinematography all make vital contributions to its effectiveness.

  • Luke Defies The Law
    378 words
    Henry David Thoreau would not believe in what Luke was fighting for. Luke was a man in jail for the destruction of municipal property. Yet he doesn't, in my mind, show any reason why he destroyed parking meters. Is Luke trying just to defy the law or does he have any reason behind what he does? Thoreau says that any man who chooses to fight should have something to fight for. Now why would he approve of Luke if Luke had no reason, other then he was drunk, to fight the law. Civil disobedience is ...
