  • Macbeth: Tragic Hero - 834 words
    Macbeth: Tragic Hero A Shakespearean tragic hero may be defined as "an exceptional being of high degree" who contributes to his own degeneration and illustrates a personality flaw. The character of Shakespeare's Macbeth is in all ways the perfect example of a tragic hero.

  • Theology An Examination Of The Question Of The Impeccability Of Jesus Christ - 2,617 words
    ... ory: an explicit attestation to [Jesus] sense of sinlessness we do not find until we encounter them, as the fruit of the Logos-theology, in the pronouncements of the Johannine Christ . While I am not personally convinced with Berkouwers interpretation and prefer to base the rejection of this argument for Jesus peccability on the correct interpretation of the passage, I will grant that Berkouwer presents a logical and plausible argument given what we know about the development of the New Testament writings.
