- A Comparison Of Early Civilizations - 1,178 words
A comparison of Early Civilizations A comparison of Early civilizations After reading the articles on early civilization, I've identified several similarities and differences about the people who were from these three cultures. The civilizations in the articles include, the people from Mesopotamia, the Quiche' Indians, a tribe in early Meso-America, and "The book of Genesis" which offers a Christian or biblical explanation of how our own civilization originated. I will tell you about how they believed they came into existence and what they thought they should do to ensure their civilization continued. The three stories offered insight on how the different cultures lived by describing how the ...

- Adam Eve - 558 words
Adam & Eve Why does God allow humans to be put through numerous tests during a lifespan? The first human beings, Adam and Eve were put to a cruel test. When Yaweh God created the world, he told Adam and Eve that they were allowed to eat from any tree they wished. However, the only loop- hole was that they were not allowed to eat from the tree of knowledge and the tree of life. Yaweh God was extremely malicious, in that he placed these trees in the middle of Eden. (Genesis 2:9) If God were omniscient, why would he need to place the tree in the middle paradise? Is it plausible that Yaweh God wanted Adam and Eve to eat the fruit to gain knowledge? Or did he place the trees in the middle of para ...

- Barely There: Women In Ancient Literature - 1,141 words
Barely There: Women In Ancient Literature Are the ancient biblical stories and the myths of the Greeks irredeemably male oriented? All ancient societies treated women as the inferior gender. It has been historically shown that in the ancient world, men were the leaders, heroes, and kings, and women served primarily as companions, helpers, and child-bearers. In the Old Testament and throughout ancient Greek literature, there is a constant theme of male superiority that cannot be ignored. Men did not believe that women were capable of existing as anything other than the typical "housewife;" it was unthinkable that a woman would actually need an education, let alone earn a living. Rarely was a ...

... common thought that women were nothing without a man. Often, women were traded as currency, or used by their fathers or husbands as incentive when making a deal. A good example of this concept can be found in Genesis Chapter 8, in the case of Lot. When the angry men of Sodom surround his house, Lot offers to give them his two daughters in order to protect his houseguests. "Please, my brothers, do no harm. Look, I have two daughters who have known no man. Let me bring them out to you and do to them whatever you want. Only to these men do nothing ... " (Genesis19:8, p86). Lot puts no thought into how his daughters might feel about being forced to have sex with these men. It seems outrageou ...

- Jewish Philosophy And Social Work - 1,231 words
Jewish Philosophy And Social Work Jewish Social Philosophy For centuries, mankind as a whole has always desired or searched for love at some given point if not for their entire life span. Love is a concept that while the dictionary will give you various definitions, can not really be defined, but rather felt. Even if we believe we are experiencing feelings of love at some point, there is no guarantee that the experience then is an ever-lasting true love. Love grows and changes throughout one's life starting hopefully with ones parents leading to peers, and on to life partners. Over time, many philosophers have looked into this topic, trying to explain and break down what exactly the concept ...

- Pauls Letter To The Galatians - 1,245 words
Paul's Letter To The Galatians The Unkindest Cut of All: The Role of Circumcision in the Christian Church The expansion of the Christian church in Galatia was an extraordinary feat that few men could have completed successfully. The daunting task of spreading the church and then keeping it running was left to one of the most pious men of that era, Paul. His letters illustrate the difficulty of dealing with the newcomers to the Christian religion. From answering technical questions about the second coming of Christ to attempting to resolve the problems the new Christians were having with pagan ministries, Paul certainly had his hands full in Galatia. One of the main problems Paul had in Galat ...

- Rembrandt - 1,684 words
Rembrandt The story of Joseph and Potiphar's wife is told in the first book of the Bible, Genesis, chapter 39. Joseph was sold into slavery by his brothers and bought by Potiphar, a high ranking official in the Pharaoh's service. "The Lord was with Joseph," and gave him success in everything he did. This pleased Potiphar and before long Joseph was given the highest position in the household, and left in charge when Potiphar was away. Now Potiphar's wife found Joseph to be very good looking and had approached him several times saying "come to bed with me;" and Joseph being a man of God would not sin against his master or the Lord, so he refused her. One day when all the servants were gone, Jo ...

- Significant Details: The Gilgamesh Epic - 1,430 words
Significant Details: The Gilgamesh Epic Significant Details Fiction or history, story or truth, myth or religion, these are questions that are applied to the ancient epic of Gilgamesh. Interestingly, these same questions apply to another major work, the Bible. Who is to say what is real and what is fiction of these two very old books? They were written many years ago, both with many different versions, and in different languages with slight variations. While it is claimed that Sumerians wrote Gilgamesh as early as 3000 B.C., there is much controversy surrounding the time the Bible, mainly the Old Testament was written (Loery). Strangely, these two books have similar accounts of very meaningf ...

- The Cloning War: Moral Or Immoral - 1,046 words
... s of yet, the act of abortion is one of the most controversial acts of the time, resulting in the bombing of abortion clinics and compilation of hundreds of rioters. Still, many would argue that cloning would not constitute the end of life, but rather the beginning. Of them, many contend that cloning is just another way to bring children to the world. This falls under the pretense of the freedom of reproductive choice. While somatic cell nuclear transfer cloning is certainly a different means of reproduction than sexual, it is, by definition, a way of reproducing. Some claim that cloning is just as moral as in vitro fertilization or adoption. However, critics see it as radically new and ...

- The Creation Story - 1,182 words
The creation story Consider the purpose of the literary presentation of the nature of God in Genesis chapters one to three. G.J Wenham states that, "Source criticism of the Pentateuch has often been a subject of controversy". Indeed, the Pentateuch or Torah has been the most questioned section of books in the world. It may also be the most well known group of books worldwide. The word Pentateuch literally means "five scrolls" and refers to the first five books of the Old Testament in the Bible. These books are, Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers and Deuteronomy. These five books trace history from the beginning of time to the formation of Israel and its exodus from Egypt. The initial Act of ...

... arate columns and that someone may have "read across rather than down the columns". The first person to introduce the doctrine that Moses may not have been the only author of the entire Pentateuch was the scholar Jean Astruc as he understood that Moses could not have possibly written about his own death at the end of Exodus. In contrast to chapter one, chapters two and three reveal a very different narrative technique. The formal structure and repetitious narrative remains in chapter and does not follow into chapter two. Genesis two is a lengthy narrative which develops differently to that of chapter one as Habel comments "Here, in Genesis 2:4b to 4:16, we meet concise and vivid stories ...
