John was the son of Zebedee, a Galilean fisherman, and Salome. John became one of the Twelve Apostles of Jesus. His brother James was also one of the first disciples of Jesus.

    Another area of divergence concerns the act of circumcision. It is clear that Jesus and Paul are Jews who are circumcised, yet throughout Paul’s epistles, he repeatedly and vehemently states that circumcision is not necessary. For example, in his first letter to Corinthians, he writes, “Circumcision is nothing, and uncircumcision is nothing; but obeying the commandments of God is everything. Let each of you remain in the condition in which you were called” (I Cor. 7:19-20). The significance of…

    Historical Context The First Epistle of John, similar to the Epistle to the Hebrews, mentions neither its author nor its specific recipients. Both of these epistles also do not employ formal greetings and blessings that are commonly found in other epistles. Another uncommon structure is also shown by the absence of a formal closing section such as found in the epistle of James. However these do not of course render the epistle to be considered as merely an open writing addressed to anyone who…

    scripture. What stood out to me was the tie in between Sirach and John on Wisdom. In Sirach Wisdom is shown as having a mission for Jerusalem and she has a great banquet inviting all who desire her. “Come to me, you who desire me, and eat your fill of my fruits. For the memory of me is sweeter than honey and the possession of me sweeter than the honeycomb” (319). We hear in the Book of Revelation of the wedding feast of the lamb and in the Gospel of Matthew Jesus talks of the wedding feast in…

    The twelve disciples were Peter, his brother Andrew, James, John, Philip, Bartholomew, Matthew, Thomas, James the son of Alphaeus, Simon the Zealot, Jude, also called Thaddeus, and Judas Iscariot.

    In our Gospel reading today, the disciples have been spending time together traveling with Jesus and they have had some amazing experiences. They watched Jesus calm the sea. They saw him drive out demons and heal sick people. They even helped Jesus feed 5,000 people with five loaves of bread and two fish. I am thinking the disciples must have believed they were going to be the next upcoming group of leaders! But then, as seen in our Gospel reading today, everything seemed to have changed. There…

    In the Christian Bible, the gospels of Matthew and John have several conflicting details, each describing the life of Jesus differently. In the book of Matthew, Jesus is portrayed as a man who is partly divine, often emphasizing his humanity. In John, Jesus is portrayed as a divine being who is partly human, often emphasizing his divinity. This is shown by the differing ways that Jesus reacts to his imminent doom throughout the Passion story. In this essay I will demonstrate how Jesus’ attitude…

    he Apostle Peter’s position within the Catholic faith survives as one that receives high praises as the first Bishop and first Pope of Rome, and the chief pastor of the whole Roman Catholic Church. There exist various reasons why Peter’s honor prevails so respected within the Catholic Church. Justifiably, after reading the Acts of Peter, if true, one may feel overwhelmed with admiration for this noble apostle, and appreciate Peter’s placement within the Catholic Church. Credibly, documentation…

    are his. But where does our love stop? Is there a limit or are there things that we are not to love? John moves his discussion to just that topic. John starts out by warning us not to "love the world or the things in the world". What is John talking about? We might think back to his gospel and remember that famous passage, the one everyone knows. The one we see at sporting events; John 3:16. John 3:16 “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should…
