  • Christ In The Old Testament

    The Contribution of Dietrich Bonhoeffers Interpretation of the Old Testament In reviewing the works of Dietrich Bonhoeffer, the study of the Old Testament seems to be almost non-existent. It is not until his time in Tegel Prison, nearly one year prior to his execution, that he fully commits himself to serious thought on the subject My thoughts and feelings seem to be getting more and more like those of the Old Testament, and in recent months I have been reading the Old Testament much more than t...
  • Jesus In The Old Testament
    10,534 words
    The Reliability of the Bible By Jimmy KinnairdI think that every argument that we may have come at us who believe in Christ finds itself, in the end, attacking the reliability of the Bible. Other religions have their books of authority. How do they stack up to the Bible? I just had a conversation with a certain Elder Robinson. He is a Mormon missionary from Idaho Falls, Idaho. I was up in his hometown two years ago doing what he is trying to accomplish here in Oklahoma City. He believes that he ...
  • Gospels Matthew And Mark
    584 words
    Response to Matthew The book of Matthew is written to the Jews. We see this because of the many quotes from the Old Testament. The Jews knew the Old Testament better than anyone of that time, and they should have been looking for the messiah that was promised. The main point that Matthew was trying to make by his book it that, Jesus was the messiah promised to us in the Old Testament. That is why he used so many quotes because he wanted to show the Jews that Jesus was the promised messiah. One m...
  • Old Testament Justice
    1,735 words
    The idea of justice has been very prominent in the readings and discussions that we have had this quarter. The Old Testament and Plato's Republic both give definitions and ideals of justice, but sometimes these ideas are contrasting or even hypocritical in their respective practices. These books both give examples of justice and how people come across their individual ideas of what justice is. I will try to explore these thoughts and explain not only what justice is, but also how individuals est...
  • Hellenic Texts And The Old Testament
    942 words
    Old Testament vs. Hellenic Divine Intervention The Old Testament and Hellenic texts we have studied have numerous examples of divine intervention. The range and complexity in human affairs that these interventions occur have similar, yet different attributes. Both texts describe divine intervention as a way of explaining 'why things happen (ed) and being 'chosen' by God or gods to fulfill a destiny. Both also see divine intervention as something that can not be understood by humans; God or the g...
  • Ethical Norms In The Old Testament
    877 words
    Ethical Values In The Old Testament BY JOHN G. TAYLOR RELIGION 205 DR. FRANK JOHNSON 18 NOVEMBER 1996 ETHICAL VALUES IN THE OLD TESTAMENT How we live our lives is governed by ethics. Ethics is "human moral conduct according to principles of what is good or right to do". Our ethical values today descend primarily from a Christian ethic in which "a truly ethical decision, we are told, must be spontaneous, undirected, free - the individual's unfettered and un coerced response to each new decision-d...

  • Old Testament Trinity By Audrei Rublev
    1,062 words
    An Icon to Remember During the Late Byzantium Period a new burst of creative energy grasped the Russian artists. More artists emerged as Russians became increasingly interested in art. Earlier in the Byzantium Period art that had to do with religious worship, like statues and any religious imagery throughout the empire, was destroyed under Leo in iconoclasm (Kleiner and Mamiya 326). This era lasted nearly one hundred years. During this period icon painting became very popular. These paintings ar...
