    A Summary on “Two Concepts of Liberty” by Sir Isaiah Berlin Sir Isaiah Berlin’s writing on the two concepts of liberty, which can be found in Chapter VII titled “Two Concepts of Liberty” in Political Philosophy edited by Anthony Quinton, helps people to understand to what degree they are free.

  • Isaiah 53 Analysis

    The passage of Isaiah 53 (4-8), for many centuries has been summed up as a poetic song in which the prophet Isaiah depicted the climatic period of world history in which the coming Messiah will arrive. In today’s culture this view is again reoriented in that many Christians alone see this passage to be a prophecy of the ministry in which Jesus Christ will walk. When looking into the passage, Christians see the ‘servant’ as Jesus, and his suffering for our sins, and the sacrifice he made for us.…

The film starts off showing a well-dressed girl and an old lady who is…
