    I chose to dissect “Apples and Water”, because as we discovered in last week’s discussion, it can have many different meanings. Consequently, after reading it at a slightly more surface level, I arrived at a more war-driven and less interpersonal interpretation. No matter the meaning a person arrives at, one of the key elements of this work is the hardships of the war. This poem also speaks of the juxtaposition of a youth’s innocence and hopefulness surrounding war and that of more experienced adult, who understand not only can you not save everyone from the horrors of life, but war cannot be fought with fruit and water. “Apples and Water” is considered a ballad (narrative) poem, separated into quatrains, with an ABAB rhyme scheme. In the first stanza, the poem delivers us at a cottage door beside a mother and her young daughter. We are an observer of the two, looking down the hill as sickly parched lipped soldiers pass by. The world is covered in a film of dust. The second stanza gives us insight into the daughter’s naive view of the soldiers. She sees each one as a man who will be made healthy by a bit of water and a few apples.

In the third and fourth stanza we see the “yin and yang” aspect of the poem. While the daughter wants to go to the soldiers, the mother holds her back, the daughter shows sympathy over their…

    Old Testament, we see great prophets emerge during times of great injustice. Among these great prophets is Elijah, an Israelite and worshiper of God under during the reign of Ahab and his murderous, idolatrous wife Jezebel. Ahab himself let his uncertainty and fear drive his passivity, which, even more so, gave way to Jezebel’s evil desires. As Ahab & Jezebel ruled, a severe famine and drought spread across Samaria. According to scholars, this devastation in Samaria lasted anywhere from two…

    In understanding Baal-zebub in 2 Kgs 1:2, we begin with Ahaziah falling through a lattice and inquiring of Baal-zebub the god of Ekron. It should be no surprise as a worshipper of Baal, determined to walk in the evil ways of his father and of his mother (1 Kings 22:52), Ahaziah would obviously make inquiries of all forms of the Baal divinity.

Preservation societies, on the other hand, continually shift their Orthopraxis to accommodate the congregational sensitivity. Jeremiah 's cracked cistern symbolizes the…
