    • 2410 Words
    • 10 Pages

    Introduction The Tanak is one of the most common names used to describe the Jewish Bible. It is also known in Protestant circles as the beginning books of the Bible, which is also called the Old Testament. No matter what name this section is given, it is a complex set of books with multiple authors, written in diverse languages, and has a history all its own. Yet, with proper study, much about the text can be discovered because many try to translate the original Hebrew and Aramaic as accurately as possible. This does not mean every form has the same wording because the translator’s preference and the specific words used in the text can lead to several translations emerging with slight differences between each version. Even seemingly straight-forward…

    This class is a very serious class for me; I look forward to gaining all that is to be learned. My expectations are high. The overall issues I have involving my relationship to the Hebrew Bible are that I have absolutely no experience and understanding of the Hebrew Bible or its details. I am only familiar with hearing the word(s) “Hebrew Bible”. Also, I am not familiar with the understanding of “ethical reflections” regarding the significance of the Hebrew Bible. The opinions I have received…

    The human-god relationships and their purpose in ancient civilizations often tell much about the beliefs and ideals of the culture as a whole. The connection between humans and their gods in both ancient Hebrew and ancient Greek culture are similar, but also vary in multiple ways. Both of these relationships can be seen between the humans and their gods in literature from the time period, specifically the relationship of Moses and God in Exodus, and between Athena and Odysseus and Telemachus in…

Moses begins taking more control of the conversation by professing his thoughts on the Israelites and how they should be lead. This shift extends to the fact that Moses is not just God’s hand picked spokesman to the people, but is now his faithful companion. In the beginning of this excerpt, Moses…

    • 9 Pages

    The book of Hebrews focuses on Christ’s superiority and exhorts Christians to be mature and stay strong in their faith. Although scholars have not come to an agreement as to who the author of Hebrews is, most do agree upon who the general audience is. The audience that this passage was directed towards was a “community” that had failed to mature in their faith and understanding of Christ. Hebrews 5:11-6:12 serves as one of several warning sections in the book where the author confronts his…

    • 736 Words
    • 3 Pages

We live in a time where we rush from place to place never taking the time to think about the happenings around us. It 's the so called rat race, as we often hear it dubbed. The endless, self-defeating, or pointless pursuit of what? We are so wrapped up in our day to day activities that we do not stop to…
