  • Black Theology Of Liberation By H. Cone: A Marxist Social Analysis

    Immediately to “Black Theology and Black Power”, Cone writes and publishes “A Black Theology of Liberation”. There, he reflects his deep commitment to the black struggle for justice from the perspective of Christian theology, which helps African American to recognize that the gospel of Jesus is not only consistent with their struggle for liberation but has a meaning central to the twentieth century America. “Racism is a disease that perverts human sensitivity and distorts the intellect”. He…

  • Amos Summary

    Justice and Righteousness in Theological and Contemporary Perspectives in Amos by Alex Prindle God called Amos to prophesy not to his own southern kingdom, but actually to the northern kingdom of Israel, where he was often seen as an imposter. This was very difficult, the people of Israel were not pleased with someone coming into their land and directing them on what to do. Because of this attitude, the people mostly didn’t listen to Amos, and Amos was eventually fed up with the people’s…

  • The Grand Inquisitor Essay

    The idea of freedom being evident in every individual may seems obvious in the 21st century, but this was a highly controversial topic within the 19th and 20th centuries. Through the eyes of Fyodor Dostoevsky in The Grand Inquisitor, freedom within society, especially within Christianity, must be valued and maintained so there is no confusion of authority. Freedom for Dostoevsky is both a self-evident truth and a God given gift that can only be trusted in His hands and those who truly believe in…

  • Difference Between Synoptic And John's Gospel

    There are a significant amount of differences between John’s Gospel and the Synoptics. The Synoptics consist of the Gospels Matthew, Mark, and Luke. All three Gospels have a large narrative approach. They include geographical settings, extensive numbers of characters, and a considerable amount of dialogue. They also capture Jesus as teaching generally through parables and short sequences of proclamation. John’s Gospel, however, is much more drawn out and inner-directed. John’s Gospel clarifies…

  • `` The Faith `` By Charles Colson

    As Charles Colson, a renowned Evangelical Christian writer and leader, wrote in his book “The Faith”, “When the God of the Bible is rejected, people choose a new god” (Colson, 68). The epitome of this statement can be found in 21st century American culture. Contrary to what some may proclaim, every American, and frankly everyone else in the world, has tabbed someone or something to fill the role of a “god” in his or her life. According to the Bible in Romans 1:20, God has revealed Himself and…

  • Mccane Majority Interpretation Analysis

    In a similar way, McCane presents what he calls the “majority interpretation”, which similarly interprets Jesus metaphorically. The ‘majority interpretation’ claims Jesus “means, ‘Let the spiritually dead bury the physically dead.’ With these words Jesus calls his followers to leave behind all worldly commitments, including even the most intimate family ties.” Just as in Origen’s interpretation, the ‘majority interpretation’ finds Jesus to be commanding his disciples to “leave behind all…

  • Essay On The Beatitudes

    The lesson of the Beatitudes is written in two of the Synoptic Gospels, both Matthew 5:1-12 and Luke 6:20-26, in the New Testament. This teaching discusses people who are blessed and what they will receive, and this story is noted as an important teaching from the Gospels in the New Testament. The Beatitudes in both the Gospels of Matthew and Luke have overarching similarities, but there are also differences that make each story unique and help to convey a specific intention the author wants his…

  • Jesus: Analysis Of The Thematic Modifications

    emphasized in the context (5:33; 6:12), especially before Jesus’ important decision (6:12). Analysis of the Thematic Modifications Luke omits most of Mark’s material. He only keeps enough information to let his audience know where he borrows the story. In his introduction, Luke omits “Once again [he went out] along the sea. All the crowd came to him and he taught them” (Mk 2:13). In this omission, the theme of companionship between Jesus with his disciples and with the crowd was removed. Luke…

  • Israeli-Palestinian Conflict Analysis

    The religious component of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict is considerably problematic and controversial, including all three of the major world’s rival religions: Judaism, Christianity, and Islam. The conflict between people of faith is not just between these three religions, but there is serious internal conflict that upon first inspection would appear to be counter intuitive. Namely, the struggle between Christian Zionists living in the United States and Eastern Christians living in…

  • Inevitability In The Second Coming

    to come, this rhyme communicates desperation to determine an answer to assuage the speaker’s anxiety. Yeats succeeds in conveying the speaker’s state of paranoia through the repetition in the two lines, portraying him as grasping at a religious eschatology for an answer and relief. The insistence of the imminence of “some revelation” triggers a vision that confirms his anticipation. The shortest independent phrase in the poem— the exclamation of “The Second Coming!”— captures the buildup of…
