    developed a culture to live by. As the size grew, the creation of permanent, structural settlements became established. A well-known establishment in the area is Jericho, one of the largest Natufian settlements. (Watkins 69). With the establishment of settlements and communities, the Neolithic people began to create a culture in which modern researchers are still trying to understand. From the excavations in Ain’ Ghazal in 1983 and 1985, archeologists found statues and plastered skulls in underground caches. The discoveries raised questions to what the items could mean and represent. The statues constructed from reeds, became forced into tightly bound bundles, and covered with lime plaster. The faces had specific facial features, such as the eyes carved in with black, coal lines. The faces have wide eyes with small noses, and a small mouth. (Grissom 33) Many of the figurines are only a few inches tall, and are flat along the backside. Some of the figurines carry hefty legs unproportioned to the body while there are many statues that are only busts. The abnormality of the two-headed statue implies the idea there is much more meaning to the statues rather than physical appearance. There is close similarity between the statues of Jericho and Ain Ghazal, which would imply a powerful strong and religious bond. (Rollefson 37) The Jericho statues, the Ain’ Ghazal statues and plastered skulls both hold common characteristics, creating the assumption that both groups could have…

Both Joshua and Moses encountered God in awesome ways. When they did they were told to remove their sandals because the ground they were standing on was “holy ground”. But what made that ground holy? Was it holy before this encounter? Or did it become holy only because of this encounter? Is the ground still…

    I am valuable. I have something of value to offer to the world." The first step to leading when no one is following is to know you are a leader. That means it's important to get into the mindset of a leader. In the sixth chapter of Joshua, after Moses has died, Joshua and the Hebrew children were just on the other side of the Jordan from the fortified city of Jericho. I imagine that up to this point, Joshua didn't think of himself as much of a leader. Then, in the fifth chapter of the book of…

    The religious elements that relate to the battle of Jericho are based on the repeating notion that the Israelites must invade Jericho because through Jericho is the land that the Lord promised. “And at the seventh time, when the priests had blown the trumpets, Joshua said to the people, "Shout! For the Lord has given you the city” (6:16). The Lord’s promise also marked Jericho and its occupancy as devotions for the Lord. “The city and all that is in it shall be devoted to the Lord for…

    In the schoolyard, sometimes there would be competitions, with its young “children, desperate for the blue ribbon (Brown, Ln. 2).” With this opening image, poet Jericho Brown guides the reader through a short conceit, bringing together children playing tug-a-war and matters of the bedroom. The simplistic struggle to win overlays atop a more complex, adult scene between two men- the speaker and an anonymous “you”, showing a scene not often depicted because of social restrictions. These…

Wrestling is not a sport, it is a spectacle, and it is no more ignoble to attend a wrestled performance of Suffering than a performance of the sorrows of Arnolphe or Andromaque.” Over time; however, the mystique wore off. In the late 1980s,…
