- Esther Book - 1,010 words
Esther Book The book of Esther takes place during the Persian Empire at the time of Xerxes (485-465 BCE). It is one of the most neglected books in the bible and very few people have ever heard a sermon on it. In fact, Ray C. Stedman reports that "Esther is a different kind of literature" and "because it is a different kind of literature, I think perhaps we are a bit frightened by it" (np). The book never mentions the name of God, the prophecy of Christ, and the words heaven or hell never even appear in it. It is a parable, so that God may illustrate a point (Stedman np). The Laymans Bible Commentary states that"there is no doubt that it is Gods hand that determines the course of affairs" (Ke ...

... saying, The Lord shall be between me and you, and between my descendants and your descendants forever." He got up and left; and Jonathan went into the city. (1 Samuel 20:41-42) Finally at Jonathans death David concludes his grieve with his words: I am distressed for you, my brother Jonathan; very pleasant have you been to me; your love to me was wonderful, passing the love of a woman" (1 Samuel 20:41-42) This suggest that the relationship between Jonathan and David was more than a friendship and it leaves you feeling sorry for the boys that King Saul did not respect their relationship. Other examples of positive instances of homosexuality in the Bible is in the book of Ruth 1:16-17 and D ...

- John Calvin - 1,201 words
... ilippians 2:13, which says, for it is God who works in you to will and act according to his good purpose. Therefore, Calvin believed that God chooses us, and we dont choose Him. The third point of Calvinism is Limited Atonement, which teaches that there is a fixed, limited number of people who will be saved, and that nobody else will be accepted by God when this number is complete. This is one of Calvins most controversial doctrines in Calvinism. The debate on limited atonement deals with the question of who Christ actually died for. Calvin answered this by saying that Christ died for the believer, or those who He had already elected. This is biblically illustrated in John 10, where Jesu ...

- Meredith Kirkland - 1,547 words
Meredith Kirkland 4-9-99 The concept of God, or any god, is one that has definite boundaries. There are many questions that arise concerning the nature of God, or even whether or not there really is one. The most common god in today's society is God, the Supreme Being worshipped by Muslims as Allah, by Jews as Yahweh, and by popular Christianity simply as God. Generally, He is thought to be in the image of humans, and in most cases of worshipping this particular deity, He is omnipotent, omniscient, and omnipresent. These beliefs, although they may be canon, are not the beliefs of every person that follows this god. There are many different ways to see and worship Him whom we will refer to si ...

- Zechariah Prophet - 1,590 words
... ents (249). The authors believe that he may have done it for one of three reasons. He could be trying to distinguish Yahweh from other gods, heightening his own authority, or claiming that his relationship with God is as strong and intimate as the relationship Moses had with God. Meyers and Meyers seem to feel that Zechariah was having trouble proving to others, and possibly himself, that he was in fact a true prophet, and therefore he is trying to heighten his authority. Next the term shepherd is thought to symbolize both political leaders and prophetic leaders. The only other prophet who was given the role of shepherd is Moses. Everywhere else in the Old Testament, shepherd refers to p ...
