... Luke, went northward through Macedonia. Whilst the vessel which conveyed the rest of the party sailed from Troas to Assos, Paul gained some time by making the journey by land. At Assos he went on board again. Coasting along by Mitylene, Chios, Samos and Trogyllium, they arrived at Miletus. At Miletus, however there was time to send to Ephesus, and the elders of the church were invited to come down to him there. This meeting is made the occasion for recording another characteristic and representative address of St. Paul. The course of the voyage from Miletas was by Coos and Rhodes to Patara, and from Patara in another vessel past Cyprus to Tyre. Here Paul and his company spent seven days. ...

Bible About Muhammad Chapter One : Christian Muslim Responses Debate on TV At the end of the debate - "Christianity and Islam" - which appeared on the SABC-TV program "Cross Questions" on Sunday 5th June 1983, the Chairman, Mr. Bill Chalmers commented: "I think it can be said from this discussion that there is, at present, somewhat more accommodation on the Islamic side for the founder of Christianity than there is on the Christian side for the founder of Islam. What the significance of that is, we leave it to you, the viewer, to determine, but I do think you will agree that it is a good thing that we are talking together." "Bill" as he is popularly addressed, without any formalities, on all ...

- Circumcision - 1,247 words
... ). Paul's comments so far would be agreeable to a person who advocated that both physical and spiritual circumcision were necessary. But Paul's next comment would be too sweeping: A man is one of God's people if he is inwardly circumcised, since the real circumcision is a spiritual matter, of the heart, not by the written code'' (verse 29). What value is there in being circumcised? Or, in synonymous terms, what advantage is there in being a Jew? Much, replies Paul (Romans 3:1-2). He does not extol any health benefits, but he mentions that circumcised people have in their community the words of God (verse 3). That is a great value, but it is all for naught if they do not obey --- and that ...

- Homosexuality Within The Church: - 1,768 words
Homosexuality within the Church: An Issue of Religious Liberty The Argument If one were to ask your stance on homosexuality within the Christian church and your reasoning behind your views, how would you answer them? I find that most Christians I have talked with take a rather conservative, traditional view and base their beliefs upon a few key passages in the Bible - I Corinthians 6:9-10; Ephesians 5:3-5; Colossians 3:5-6; Jude 5-7 and about a dozen more. The basic problem with limiting your view to these various scriptures is that homosexuals who claim to be Christians use these same passages in defense. Many claim that these passages have been translated incorrectly from their original te ...

- John Calvin - 1,216 words
John Calvin Many people in history have made a very big impact on their culture, times, and/or religion. One that stands out is John Calvin. He had a really huge influence during his timethe early-to-middle sixteenth century. Calvin devoted almost his whole life to promoting Protestantism, and he made a big difference that is still seen today in Christianity. Calvin was born in France in July of 1509 and belonged in a set of five brothers. He was baptized to the parish of Sainte-Godeberte, where his parents were parishioners (Walker 26). Calvin, as a boy, was very liberally educated since his parents were as well. When he was eleven, his father arranged for John to be in charge of a chaplain ...

- Philemon Letter - 1,570 words
Philemon Letter The letter of Philemon was written by Paul the apostle along with Timothy. Paul was definitely the author and nothing needs to confirm that. The "external testimony is unimpeachable." (Smith, p.510) The letter was written to Philemon on behalf of Onesimus. Philemon lived in Colosse and we know this because Onesimus was also Colossian which is confirmed in Colossians 4:9. Philemon was a man of property and influence. It is not known exactly how he knew Paul though.(Smith, p.509) Paul did address others in the letter. One of which was Apphia, a Christian woman. She was a member of Philemons household and may have been his wife.(Smith, p.47) It also includes Archippus who was a ...

... 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 ...
