Abram: My Understanding Of The Bible

Good Essays
My understanding of the Bible starts with Abram. He has a major stance in the bible and the stories that is in the bible. The bible has money stories that took place many of centuries ago, BC. What we would say today, the time before Christ. The bible is full of stories that changed people for life, spiritual belief, and physical and mental ways. This book is a very old book that relates to the problems we go through today. It just do notjust help with problems but also guide you through the good phases. This one book is about one God, one God only!
The bible has the problem and the cause that humans go to for help. I feel like it is kind of crazy that ancient people went through the same things people in percent time is going through. The book that is so called the "Bible" has great power but only to a believer. It drove so many people to believe. It is always questioned and an argument about if certain scriptures in the bible is true or not. Is it really the way of life? Some people like to ask. But who really know the real answer. Who is god talking? Who is god preferring to in the powerful book of his? What is he saying to whom? Could it be just his people? God say anyone is welcome. Who and how is he speaking to man.

My understanding of the bible is that Israelites is talking about one god. Jesus changed the world, and influenced other from other religions to convert to Christianity. You had to understand the language to understand the bible back then. Which the bible first languages where Hebrew, Greek, and Arabic. The language of the bible was powerful, well it had well more power in the past than now. Starting with Abram, the Israelites are the ones who wrote the powerful word, and who basically keep this religion going and wrote the words in the bible. Lots of things are unsaid or misunderstood from a secular humanism views. Like one of my classmates mentioned, "The bible said it is a sin to get drunk, but never it said

    This is especially important because when we look at modern churches of today, especially in first-world countries, we see a decline of the soteriology that was strong in their theology in premodern times. This may be because many believers may unintentionally compartmentalize their pursuit of knowledge and their pursuit of God. However, Billings is sure that premodern readers understood the most fundamental idea of all: that it is not just about facts and head knowledge, but in order to exegete properly, “it requires a life of prayer and worship before a holy and mysterious God.” (182) In doing so, the Church finds itself drawing nearer to…

    The West has always been defined by the separation of church and state, yet the Bible has still had an immense effect on Western society. This not only includes both subtle and purposeful Biblical tropes in movies, books, and arts, but includes major institutions. The Bible has become such an intrinsic part of Western culture that Moses is featured on the Supreme Court of the United States. Though through the law, church and state may be separated, this is not the case in reality. Many of the ideas of righteousness and goodness are rooted in the Bible, leading to its importance in understanding everyday life in Western society.…

    Even though throughout church history Parables have been interpreted in many ways, Parables are the most fundamental component because they are filled with hidden meaning, because early Christians began interpreting the text allegorically, through the “Many years of debates among evangelicals were about whether each parable teaches only one point or whether a parable may have several main points." In this research from different perspective will exploratory examples will be explained as novelist point out what they feel is meant by the Parables. Jesus was the master of teaching in parables and it was in his parables that we often find an unexpected twist or surprise ending that catches everyone’s attention. First, one must know that Parables are the most fundamental component because they are filled with hidden meaning. Early Christians began interpreting the text allegorically and by interpreting the text allegorically they proposed many allegorical meanings unintended by the biblical authors (pg.5).…

    The special revelation of God is needed and provided by His Word to regenerate one by faith in God. Later, the Protestant theology originated by reformers such as Martin Luther and John Calvin was influenced by Paul’s writings. Capes, Reeves, & Richards (2007), authors of our textbook noted these reformers “relied heavily upon Paul for much of their thinking. In fact, it may be safe to say, that, without Paul there would be no “Calvinism”, “no Lutheran theology” (p. 297). Luther could not understand how sinful man is striving to live righteously still fell short of God’s mark and remained to be guilty in God’s court of justice.…

    I am glad that there is evidence that many events are historical fact in the bible. It is hard for me to put words on my feelings for this book and I mean no offence. I have had much conflict and argument throughout my childhood and life, so that is maybe why I am almost angered that the bible has to be argued about. I’ve never like it when preachers try to sell their ideas to me in a way that I feel bad at the end of the day if I don’t believe them myself. Im a very open minded person but I don’t like when people force feed me their opinions, even if there is books full of evidence.…

    There are several views about the errancy and or inerrancy of the Word. One of the strongest views about the inerrancy is; that the words written by the prophets and apostles have always been used in the Church (Elwell, 2001). They viewed them as ‘divinely given’, or inspired ‘breathed’, the Bible says over and over “that God can not lie” and this is His character behind the words in which He inspired man to write” (Elwell 2001, pp158). There are also some views that are not quite as strong, these believe that the Bible cannot be quoted as accurate; this is what is known as the Epistemological view (Towns 2008). This belief is that at least part or some of the Bible is not right and was not inspired by God; also that it leaves room for error (Elwell 200, pp 158).…
