  • Saint Luke The Evangelist

    Saint Luke the Evangelist is a very humble person willing to help other, especially if it is ordered by God to do so. Saint Luke has devoted his life to Christianity and Jesus, known for being a man of many crafts, and a close friend of the Apostle Paul. Luke is also known for his good relationship with the women around him, and Jesus himself. Luke was such a good servant of God and Jesus that he was allowed to have an influence on the bible, including having a book named after him. According to people around Luke, he is believed to be a Greek and Gentile, while being born in Syria at Antioch. In Colossians 10-14 mentions circumcision which refers to Jewish people, but Luke is not mentioned in that so nobody believes that he is of Jewish descent.…

  • Personal Narrative: A Day At St. Luke's Hospital

    Hospital in Cedar Rapids. The day began at 0800 and ended shortly after 1600. There were several differences along the way starting with the time. I teach clinicals for Iowa College of Nursing and they begin at 0645 and end at 1530. Anne had informed me that she was not a morning person and got to chose what times she did her clinicals out. Plus, the hours she taught clinicals counted toward her full time faculty job at Mount Mercy University. The hospitals are extremely different. I…

  • Avarice In The Bible

    Jesus, in his Sermon on the Mount, uses “Mammon” to illustrate two opposing kinds of vision in vs. 22 & 23 (Kroeker, 2009). Interesting to note that in verse 22 the word used is healthy, which in this context refers to generous, so unhealthy in verse 23 would have the opposite meaning, stingy. So, as we saw in the Luke passage above, holding on to one’s wealth does not guarantee you happiness; in fact, you “will be full of darkness” (vs. 23). Verse 24 is familiar to many, “No one can serve…

  • God Space: Where Spiritual Conversations Happen Naturally It

    altogether. That being: how to rebuild burnt bridges. I believe we can all understand the analogy. The conversation you had with that non-believer that went horribly wrong. Or you meet somebody that had a conversation with a different believer and were completely turned away from God because of that one, or many, interaction, or interactions. The book talks about how to rebuild those already burnt bridges, how to retain those ‘lost’ souls. No soul is lost forever, and that is something that is…

  • The Blindman's Meal Analysis

    At first glance, we assume that Caravaggio has intentionally diminished the luminescence of the Divine figure of Christ, and chose to represent Him in a very human and less mystical form. Instead of a grand halo, we see a modest light encircling His head, and the greater draw is towards His posture in calling the saint-to-be, Matthew. But there are other elements that may suggest Divinity – for instance, the great beam of light shining through the window casts a forceful presence and unnatural…

  • Passion Narrative Essay

    Even though the Passion Narratives of the four Gospels are very alike in numerous of ways, there are also many important differences among them.The three Synoptic Gospels correlate with one another (because Matthew and Luke go off of Mark), while John’s writings are much different, especially when it comes to chronology. Also, while Matthew and Mark are very similar to each other and almost the same, Luke is different from them and is more similar to John. In addition, an unspecified amount of…

  • Matthew 13: 1-2 Analysis

    When crowds are large, it gets loud and harder to hear, but when Jesus is the speaker, people become silent and it’s effortless to hear, even still they do not listen to the wisdom of God. “Though hearing they do not hear or understand.” Matthew and mark are parables that are common with each other in the Gospels. They talk about Jesus in a large crowds and how people will not listen to Jesus even with silence. God put these parables out for us, so that we could understand his spiritual lessons…

  • Portrait Of Jesus Essay

    The stories of Jesus are represented through the four New Testament Gospels: Mark, Matthew, Luke, and John. Each Gospel emphasizes on particular principles that represent Jesus differently. Jesus is seen as the suffering Messiah in all four Gospels, but each Evangelist puts in his own intake, hence expanding on the original Markan portrait of Jesus. The writers of the Gospels give their own theological assertions, and understandings, which in effect creates a new portrait of Jesus for each…

  • The Four Synoptic Gospels

    Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John. These four Gospels constitute a single literary genre and their central message is distinctive. Their content is similar, but their presentation of Jesus takes on a slightly different form. Each Gospel differs from the other. John is the most dissimilar of the four. At first glance, the gospels seem to be of a biographical or historical nature. They tell the story of Jesus’ life, and give insight into who he was, what he did, and what he said. In that sense, one…
