  • Noah
    498 words
    Genesis 1-11 My mind began to fill with questions and thoughts as I read the first eleven chapters of the Bible (see list of questions after my paper please). It never ceases to amaze me that I can repeatedly read chapters of the Bible and learn or notice something fresh each study session. A number of unique things occurred to me this time through. The fact that the Tigris and Euphrates have actually been on earth since Adam was placed in the Garden of Eden (Genesis 2: 14) amazed me. To think t...
  • God's Chosen King Hebrew Bible After
    313 words
    Hebrew bible After reading Joshua 15 I was really surprised. How could god give such horrific orders such as " destroy everything they have". Not only that but god was Hebrew bible After reading Joshua 15 I was really surprised. Not only that but god was upset that he did not kill all the livestock. Saul let a few things live but was pretty merciless and god was upset and regretful. Why could god not do his own dirty work instead of putting blood on other men's hands? It seems funny that many co...
  • Supreme Court And District Court

    Abington School District vs. Schempp Required School Prayer In 1949, a state-wide law was passed in Pennsylvania that required public school students to read scriptures from the Bible and recite the Lord's Prayer everyday in class. This law stayed intact until Edward Schempp challenged it nine years later. Pennsylvania wasn't the first or the only state to enforce law making it mandatory for students to read from the Bible during school. Twenty-five additional states had laws allowing "optional"...
  • Great Respect For The Bible
    764 words
    I love God. With my entire heart I burn for him. As a freshman in high school He called me, not with words or anything audible, but by his mere presence; a holy desire within my spirit that wants to love his people, and bring them into a romantic love-relationship with Him. The calling was as a whisper at first, just a small urge, almost a whim, but now it has grown into a war cry that rages in my soul. I'm not sure exactly how literature has affected that, well secular literature; the main infl...
  • Gutenberg's First Printed Book
    553 words
    Johannes Gutenberg was born between 1394 and 1399 the exact date is unsure. He was born in Mainz and trained as a goldsmith there. His family later settled in Strasbourg, France. During the Renaissance he invented the printing press, which allowed the peasants to have access to books. For the first time books were being mechanically made through the use of ink and molds instead of handwritten. Gutenberg's first printed book was the Bible. During the Renaissance the common people were not able to...
  • Margery Kempe
    386 words
    Margery Kempe: Holy roller or Evil doer Upon reading, and re-reading, Margery Kempe, I realized just how much this text refers to the Bible. The first thing that I noticed was on pg. 299, "she was laboured with great accesses, till the child was born". I think that it is safe to say that this passage was written with the Bible in mind. Specifically Genesis 3: 16 and "To the woman he said: I shall give you great labour in child bearing". Given this image from the Bible so early in the text, I was...
  • Tyndales English Bible Translation
    571 words
    How has William Tyndales translation influenced all the following English translations of the Bible In 1525, William Tyndale began to write his famous version of the scriptures. Printing had already been achieved, so Tyndale had the desire to give the people a Bible of their own, in their own language. By 1526, Tyndales version of the English Bible had been published and printed. There was great turmoil over the translation however, because the King of England, Henry V decreed that the translati...
