    Visualizing the “Suicide of Judas and Crucifixion of Christ” “Suicide of Judas and Crucifixion of Christ” is a rectangular ivory carving of an event depicting four men and one woman. The bottom horizontal part of the rectangular carving functions as the ground of the scene, which subtlety merges into the sides of the carving. The two side and top of ivory carving function as a border with the inscription “REX IVD” over the head of Christ. These men appear to be outside in a warm environment,…

    Jesus is defined as full man and full God, meaning that He is God himself transformed into a human being. The book of John is a good source to understand the incarnation of God in Jesus Christ, and His role in the trinity.

    Life is sweet, but life is hard. In “The Tyger” and “The Lamb” by William Blake, the speaker expresses a conflicted attitude towards God and the two poems differ in their tone towards God and all of his creations. The speaker, a follower of the christian faith, creates a powerful tone through the use of diction, imagery, and repetition in “The Tyger” and “The Lamb.” Both poems have conflicting attitudes toward God, for “The Lamb” creates a confident and passionate tone while “The Tyger”…

Water which has been, all through the source of life in a very ordinary way, has become also the source of life and celebration in an extraordinary life.

It portrays that through whatever you do in life to always look to the Lord for answers. No matter the rough or great times you have throughout life there is always an answer and there will always be an upside to any situation. Jesus wants every human…

But for the grace of God I would be doomed. 1 John 1:8-9 8 If we say that we have no sin, we are only fooling ourselves and refusing to accept the truth. 9 But if we confess our sins to him, he can be depended on to forgive us and to cleanse us from every wrong. And it is perfectly proper for God to do this for us because Christ died to wash away our sins. In my opinion the greatest verse in the Bible was written just for me and you. John 3:16 16 For God so loved the world, that he…
