  • Babylon Fall In Bible And History - 1,303 words
    Babylon Fall In Bible And History Comparing the fall of the Historical Babylon and the Babylon of Revelation To understand the symbolism between the two Babylon's of the bible, one must first understand the fall of each and how the two compare. There is a lot to be said about the events that took place during fall of the Historical Babylon how these events are related to the fall of the Babylon of Revelation. To begin with I will describe the fall of the Historical Babylon and then relate this to two mainstreams of thought regarding the fall of the Babylon of Revelation. These two ideas are the futuristic and the historical views of Babylons fall. The reason for these two separate views is b ...

  • Bible Influences - 1,725 words
    Bible Influences ZOROASTRIANISM, JUDAISM, AND CHRISTIANITY Zoroastrianism, Judaism, and Christianity share so many features that it seems that there must be a connection between them. There is a great deal of Zoroastrian influence in both Judaism and Christianity. In 586 BCE, the forces of the Babylonian Empire conquered the Jews, destroying their Temple and carrying off a proportion of the Jewish population into exile. It was during the end of the Exile, among the Jews now living in the Persian Empire, that the first significant contact was made between the Jewish and Iranian cultures. And it is evident in the Bible that Jewish thinking changed after the Exile. During the Exile, Jews had to ...

  • Death Penalty - 1,119 words
    Death Penalty Many people will argue that capital punishment is inappropriate as a proper means of punishment for murder and rape. The truth is the death penalty is the most effective form of retributive justice for those crimes. The death penalty is a fitting punishment for violent crime because executions maximize public safety through a form of incapacitation and deterrence. The death penalty has been around since the days of Moses and it is still around today. The reason for this is simply because it works. The Jews believe that the death penalty was God-given and therefore a necessary part of their religious and judicial system. The Jews use the death penalty to punish such grotesque of ...

  • Hammurabi And Alexander The Great - 529 words
    Hammurabi And Alexander The Great Hammurabi, Zhou, Asoka the Great, and Alexander the Great had various means by which they justified their authority and their rule. Each had a very unique style of thoughts and actions. History was changed due to the actions of these rulers. The Zhou was a coalition of several groups that existed during the Shang dynasty. Zhou believed that the Shang failed to uphold religious duties, therefore they attributed their victory over Shang to the Mandate of Heaven. This empire was the longest empire in Chinese civilization. Iron made its first appearance during this period. Enormous armies of foot soldiers armed with iron swords and shields replaced old chariot s ...

  • Jewish History - 1,086 words
    Jewish History Jewish History Throughout the history of the world, the Jewish people have been persecuted and oppressed because of their religious beliefs and faith. Many groups of people have made Jews their scapegoat. Jews have suffered from years of intolerance because people have not understood what the religion really means. They do not understand where and why the religion began, nor the customs of it's people. For one to understand the great hardships, triumphs, and history of the Jewish people one must open-mindedly peruse a greater knowledge of the Jewish people and faith. In the beginning, Judaism was founded by Abraham when he began to worship a figure called Elohim. There were tw ...

  • Preforming Our Theological Task - 1,126 words
    ... many of the so called "cutting edge churches", the mega churches, forget that the goal of the church is to produce spiritual wholeness among those gathered by preaching and teaching, ad did the apostle Paul, "the whole purpose of God" (Acts 20:17-32). Those in the church today and those who are seeking the church need to be aware that a real change occurs in the life of anyone who commits himself or herself to Jesus Christ. Our aspirations for God are encouraged by a sense of acceptance and perhaps by the inner confirmation of the Spirit. Authentic faith is that which follows the will of Christ with total obedience. When one is hindered from freedom by evil that can only enhance the feel ...

  • Response To Millennial Cults - 813 words
    Response To Millennial Cults Two themes I found throughout these essays included the views of the cults towards society as a whole and views pertaining to governmental tyranny. The Millennial attitudes of all these groups focus on catastrophic occurrences and how they can survive in the oncoming new world. The two themes of social and government evil evoking the new world seem intertwined in many of the cults. However, I find an example of cultural blame being the underlying factor of groups/cults such as those described in 'Millenarians & Violence, The case of the Christian Identity Movement' to particularly attribute the evils of the world to the Jews. Although these groups criticize gover ...

    ... ingwhile drunk, or under the influence of alcohol. Observing this Rabbi Eliezer, a Torah commentator states: "The proof is that their death (scripture) admonished the remaining that they should not enter intoxicated with wine into the sanctuary..." (Yitzhaki 10:2). But the merit of this argument is not very strong. The relationship between the 'strange fire' by Nadab and Abihu, and intoxication is unclear. Furthermore, the statement "I will be sanctified in them that come nigh to me..." attributed to God has no implications of any kind of sin involving the lude, but rather implies sin through the mistaken practice of a noble act. Some allegorical interpretaions of the Nadab and Abihu inc ...

  • Zerubabbel As A Messianic Figure - 1,154 words
    Zerubabbel as a Messianic figure. As my text, I am using the book of Haggai 2:23: "In that day, saith the Lord of hosts, will I take thee, O Zerubbabel,, my servant, the son of Shealtiel, saith the Lord, and will make thee as a signet: for I have chosen thee, saith the Lord of hosts." Thus, the messianic promise was passed onto Zerubbabel, the man that God entrusted to be the governor of Gods people upon their return to Israel, and with the rebuilding of the Temple at Jerusalem. Zerubbabel was a leader, a man of God, and a faithful servant to Gods will. Zerubbabel was a messianic figure. This can be seen in a series of comparisons and contrast to Christ and His work. To begin, Zerubbabel was ...
