- A Myriad Of Mysteries Is Contained In The Pages Of The Old Testament For Centuries, Scholars Of Theology, Archeology And Anth - 1,419 words
A myriad of mysteries is contained in the pages of the Old Testament. For centuries, scholars of theology, archeology and anthropology have labored to produce some explanation of the contradictions and impossibilities put forth in these texts. The ancient ruins of lost cities reveal evidence that some writings may be incorrectly dated, or even that they may be false. Faith and tradition give way to speculation that the Bible may be nothing more than a collection of ancient Israelite mythology. Some things, however, prove tantalizingly true. Temple Judaism and its monarchy, for example, are historical fact; the records of surrounding civilizations corroborate the chronicling of their place in ...

Like Adam Does the miraculous birth of Jesus make him a God or a "begotten" son of God? No! says the Holy Quran: "The similitude of Jesus before Allah (God) is that of Adam; He created him from dust then said to him: 'Be', and he was."

... 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.

Leviathan And Behemot: Dinosaur, Dialect, Or Diety The Leviathan and The Behemot: Dinosaur, Dialect, or Diety From the Romans to the Greek to the Kush to the Egyptians, folklore has been handed down from generation to generation. In most cases this folklore transcends any one religion and carries over into the next. Much like the Romans adopting and perverting Greek folklore, so too has most every religion known to exist. Likewise, from most mythology come stories of great, monstrous beasts, like the kraken and Cerberus. Such beasts are the leviathan and the behemot of ancient Hebrew lore. These great creatures are mentioned in the book of Job, which is speculated to be the oldest book of th ...

- The Gospel Of Lune - 1,277 words
The Gospel Of Lune In the Gospel According to Luke and the Acts of the Apostles, repentance and forgiveness are discussed explicitly. These acts serve as our attempt to become better Christians. Only in repenting our sins and working for their forgiveness are we able to embrace the workings of God. Additionally, it is only through the word of Jesus and the power of the Holy Spirit, and the grace of God, that man is forgiven. But, if one does not repent and change ones ways, receiving Gods forgiveness is impossible. In explaining these aspects of Christian faith, they also help to explain the static relationship between God and his people in the earlier Books of Genesis, Exodus and Job. Conse ...
