  • What Does Paul Teach Shilemon

    There are 13 books in the bible in which Paul is thought to have been the author of. Of the books that he wrote, Philemon is the shortest. Despite the book being the shortest, it is one of the most interesting books that Paul wrote in my opinion. The reason for this interest is some of the backstory, and the lesson Paul is trying to teach Philemon. The situation that the letter originates from begins with Philemon owning a slave named Onesimus. One thing lead to another, and Onesimus escaped…

  • Zealot: The Life And Times Of Jesus Of Nazareth

    Jesus Christ: a celestial, heavenly figure shrouded in our contemporary culture as a peaceful prophet whose sole purpose was divine salvation. This representation of Jesus that has permeated throughout history is entirely wrong in Aslan’s perspective. Aslan portrays Jesus as a politically conscious revolutionary who in fact supported violence to a certain extent. Now when Aslan’s critically detested words entered my mind, like most self-proclaimed critics, I mocked this man for his asininity.…

  • Chapter 1 Corinthians: Chapter Analysis

    1 Corinthians is Paul’s letter to the Corinthian church in Greece that takes on both an admonishing and encouraging tone. Though there are many themes throughout this book, chapter 15 zooms in on one main topic: the resurrection. The church’s beliefs had started to become infused with the culture’s beliefs and they had begun to doubt the truth of the Resurrection. In this chapter, Paul tries to combat this, simultaneously answering several worldview questions. The first and most prominent…

  • Can Jesus Sign Hannah Lewis Analysis

    experiences of oppressed people construct perceptions of Christ. One theologian she particularly engages with is womanist theologian Jacquelyn Grant, and Grant’s example of how “the ‘Christ symbol’ has been reconstructed in the past, by ordinary Christians to be transformative rather than oppressive” (Lewis 140).

  • Madonna And Child Observation

    The second piece that I decided to observe was Madonna and Child, a 14th century work that was painted by an unknown artist. The tempera on oil piece also sits in the memorial art gallery. This early renaissance painting seems to display a composition that most think of when thinking about Mary and Christ. Mary is directly center in this painting, with Christ held off to her right side. The child holds up his right hand, and in his left, there is a scroll. Though it is supposed to show a moment…
