  • One Jesus Twelve Apostles
    1,107 words
    Before I even begin to deconstruct Dan Brown's Da Vinci Code, I think it is very appropriate to explain my perspective. I attended Catholic schooling for my first nine years of education. The school I attended taught the Catholic faith in a very conservative and orthodox manner. I still do practice the Catholic faith, but at the current time, I am very impressionable with it comes to my faith and beliefs. My first impression after reading The Da Vinci Code was that Brown is very blasphemous towa...
  • Shalt Worship The Lord Thy God
    1,625 words
    Barbara Stanfield American Literature Argumentative Paper Contradictions in Thomas Paines The Age of Reason Thomas Paine wrote The Age of Reason in 1784. In it he included his views on the religions known throughout the world. For this, he was ridiculed and despised by many in society. Thomas Paine once said that a sermon he heard at the age of eight impressed him with the cruelty inherent in Christianity and made him a rebel forever. It is my opinion that, because of this, he lived the rest of ...
  • African Jesus
    361 words
    'Black' theology, much like feminist theology, deals with being the oppressed. With that, faith comes out from knowing we are oppressed in order to believe / teach us to be happy. This is because our oppression brings us closer to God. Thus, we understand God's word better by speaking to those who are persecuted. Solle goes on saying that we must become 'black'. Not as a race, per say, but for our experiences with suffering as a group (not as an individual) (pg 97). A major point was that of the...
  • 50 Degrees In The Middle Of December
    817 words
    It was a typical day as any other with the only exception that it was nearly 50 degrees in the middle of December. People were operating as they always due skating through their business day while they sip on their Starbucks and yell at someone on their cell phone. But hey, that's the world we live in, blank stairs, exchanging un-pleasantry's and so on and so forth. Kids like me sit at tables trying to make some kind of pointless conversation with an attractive female while we stair into their e...
  • One Man Sin
    1,837 words
    Biblical Errancy People for years have been debating against each other to prove the Bible to be inherent or to be errant. Errancy is a deviation from the truth or what is right. There are many different types of errors expressed throughout the Bible such as transnational errors, doctrinal errors and contradictions. How could any book be without error? That would be practically impossible, so in this paper I will prove the Bible to be very errant because of many facts shown. First, I am going to...
  • Authors's Tudy Of Jesus Sayings
    594 words
    THE HARD SAYINGS OF JESUS CHAPTERS 1-20 As a Christian and a bible student there is on greater subject than Jesus. No other person has effected history more than Jesus; some say he was a prophet, some say he was a great teacher, and others just think he was crazy. But, to those of us who know him to be the Son of God it is very important to understand his teachings. Throughout Jesus ministry on earth he made a number of statements that went misunderstood both then and now. However it is importan...
  • One Sabbath Jesus And His Disciples
    616 words
    When you think of Sabbath, you think of a holy day, a day of rest and relaxation for both man and animals. The word Sabbath comes from the Hebrew word meaning "day of rest". 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...
  • Jesus For Forgiveness And Christ
    946 words
    JESUS LAST WORDS ON THE CROSS The seven last words of Jesus on the cross demonstrate both his humanity and his divinity, and capture the last moment Jesus went through to gain our forgiveness. 1. Father forgive them, for they know not what they do: (Luke 23: 34) Forgiveness for those who arrested condemned and executed Jesus... but also forgiveness those who drove the nails into the hands of Jesus, and those who mocked him. It is amazing to see the boundless mercy of Jesus. The first words He ut...
  • Account Of Judas's Death In Matthew 27
    1,059 words
    Ever since you told me what your YL leader said, I have been studying it. Once I got into the word, I realized that I had dealt with this topic before, when our leader was "testing" our response to "questions of contradiction". This is what I have concluded. First of all, notice that the text does not say that Judas died as a result of hanging. All it says is that he 'went and hanged himself. ' Luke however, in Acts, tells us that 'and falling headlong, he burst open in the middle and all his en...
  • Jesus Of Mitchell's Gospel
    924 words
    What does the Jesus of Mitchell's gospel have to say to those of us living in the year 2000? The true test of a literary work is the test of time. If a work has a universal theme, if it has a universal lesson that can be learned, it will last and be referred to as a classic and generation after generation of students will read and discuss it in school. While the Gospels are not necessarily considered classics, they have, indeed stood the test of time. Almost 2000 years after Jesus lived, people ...
  • Cross For Jesus
    2,553 words
    The Death of Christ EXAMINATION I chose to look into Jesus death and the people who were involved in it. The first group of people who got hold of Jesus was the Roman soldiers. They were probably the most innocent in the whole thing. Granted they did perform the actual act of crucifying Christ, but it was because of the order that Pilate gave them. As I looked into crucifixion and how it started I found that before Jesus was crucified, more than 30,000 men, in Israel alone, had already been cruc...
  • Things About Their Lives
    513 words
    The Sermon on the Mount Throughout the book of Matthew the reader can notice many instances when Jesus wants his people to act differently then they were told to before. During Jesus's sermon on the Mount, he tells his people how they should live their lives, he also tells them how to pray and how to treat others. Jesus brings up old sayings and adds to them during his sermon asking his people to change the way they live. First, Jesus talks about how his people should live their lives. Jesus say...
  • Corroborating Evidence Of Jesus Existence Why
    1,468 words
    The agnostic argues that, unless you are omniscient, you cannot say for sure that there are no gods. However, the Atheist believes there are no gods, and most atheists are quite certain. How can the Atheist say there are no gods, without claiming infinite knowledge The answer lies in the method of analysis. There is no scientific test that can disprove a god. A legal truth test, rather than a scientific truth test, is more appropriate for religious claims. If you want to determine the various di...
  • Humanization Of Jesus The Christ
    1,221 words
    When we think of the life of Jesus Christ, our main source is the Bible. This great literary work does an excellent job of portraying Him as God's chosen Messiah. He is very accepting of His job and is open to the suffering He endures throughout His life and during His death. Jesus has always been the pious, chaste man that people have come to know ever since the Bible was written. He always resisted temptation, never feared evil, and never once doubted that God was not His father, nor did He ev...
  • Matthew 15 Jesus
    1,256 words
    Why Jesus was a Liberal I have often wondered why Christian's vote so largely republican. They overall are conservative and very afraid of change. I see nothing conservative about Christ. He was a revolutionary and in my opinion, a liberal. He life completely changed religion and added a New Testament to the traditional laws. He did not come to say "just follow the laws and traditions and you will be fine. Don't change anything". He rewrote the laws and showed that although we should follow them...
  • Grapes Of Wrath And Jim Casy
    2,611 words
    Grapes of Wrath - Jim Casy Character Analysis John Steinbeck passionately describes a time of unfair poverty, unity, and the human spirit in the classic, The Grapes of Wrath. The novel tells of real, diverse characters who experience growth through turmoil and hardship. Jim Casy- a personal favorite character- is an ex-preacher that meets up with a former worshiper, Tom Joad. Casy continues a relationship with Tom and the rest of the Joads as they embark on a journey to California in the hopes o...
  • Biblical Allusions During The Grapes Of Wrath
    551 words
    The Grapes of Wrath includes many biblical allusions. First of all, we see Jim Casey as a Jesus figure. In the most obvious of senses, Casey has the same initials as Jesus, JC. Also, the 12 people who begin the journey with Casey represent the twelve disciples that Jesus had. The traitor in The Grapes of Wrath was Connie, and in the bible it was Judas. Connie and Judas both abandon their groups for their own selfish reasons. Casey even goes so far as to compare himself to Christ by saying, "I be...
  • Jesus Message About The Kingdom Of God
    589 words
    Mark is most likely the first of the Gospels to be written because it is the shortest and tells of the ministry of Jesus. Mark stresses Jesus' message about the kingdom of God and how it is breaking into human life as good news and that Jesus himself is portrayed as the "gospel of God". Jesus is explained as the Son of God who is sent down to rescue everyone. His life is predestined as a sacrifice for humanity. The beginning of the book sets the tone of Mark by the actions of John the Baptist an...
