  • Agatha Dave Quotes Analysis

    Agatha Christie states, “If you love, you will suffer, and if do not love, you do not know the meaning of a Christian life”.

Nonetheless, the second part of this quote mirrors that if you do not love, you will not find God or…

  • A More Christ-Like God Analysis

    A large part of what compiles the New Testament of the Bible is the recollection of the life and works of Jesus. This collection is commonly known as the Gospel. The Greek word “gospel” translates to “Good news”. What was considered to be such good news in these accounts?

    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…

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). This language of Christ as a symbol has appeared in many of our class reading so far this semester. While it seems to be a significant idea for much of liberationist theology (including…
