  • Use Of The Book Of Enoch
    955 words
    We first learn of Enoch in Genesis 5 but it leaves us with questions. Hebrews 11 has the answers and Jude quotes Enoch! How did Jude come to know the words of Enoch? They are not in the Bible. The answer of course, is The Book of Enoch. A book which is actually quoted not only by Jude, but also James the natural brother of Jesus. The quote in (Jude 14-15) & (1 Enoch 1: 9) is as follows: 'In the seventh (generation) from Adam Enoch also prophesied these things, saying: 'Behold, the Lord came with...
  • Every Word
    638 words
    I read an excerpt from the book, The Autobiography of Malcolm X, by Malcolm X and Alex Haley. In this part of the book Malcolm discusses his quest for knowledge. He starts off by telling us about how he wrote his Harlem, hustler friends and told them all about Allah and Mr. Elijah Muhammad, the two main figures in the Islam religion. He never got a single reply and figured it was because the average hustler and criminal couldn't read. He also thought that maybe they thought he had gone crazy, be...
  • Book Sleepy Dog

    "Sleepy Dog" I remember many important reading experiences in my life. I was interested in reading at a very young age. While most young children despised reading, and preferred coloring pictures or hot wheels, I was fascinated with reading from the start. I used to observe my parents at the kitchen table while they read the newspaper. I was always interested in what was going on. I would always walk over to them and I would ask them what all the different articles said. The only things I could ...
  • Basic Definition Of The Word Magic
    1,830 words
    Doing this research paper didn't really help me find anything extraordinary about the word magic. I pretty much knew what the word magic meant, from the comic books I read and the television I watch. It did however, make me view the word in more depth. Don't get me wrong, I'm not implying in any way that the word magic, is dull, because it is just the opposite. I'm simply stating that because of my fascination with the subject of magic, I am already familiar with its background and capabilities....
  • Book From Judy

    I'm sure going to miss their great friendliness and hospitality. They were always so nice to me, and my mom and dad. They were probably the best neighbors we have ever had. I think Judy was the first friend I met when I moved here from Wisconsin. We were both so young, it's bad of me not going to the funeral. I'll probably regret that I didn't go later on but, I just couldn't handle it right now. "Brandon we' re home."Yea Mom I'm upstairs, do you think that anyone has moved into the Smites house...

  • Harry Potter Book
    1,686 words
    Harry Potter Literature that children are exposed to often gives them ideas and provokes them to think and draw their own conclusions about things, it also provides a necessary escape from reality for them. This is why censoring children's books can be rather destructive to their developing minds. If the tools with which kids are given to sharpen their minds are banned, then a little part of their education is stolen from them. With every theft of knowledge the future is too robbed of possibilit...
