Matt. 5: 40-45 Jesus talks about loving your enemy, those that hate you, use you, or persecute you. No matter what happens don’t hate those around you, they are children of God just like you are.

    The two passages from the synoptic gospels, Matthew 15:21-28 and Mark 7:24-30, both create accounts of an event that occurred somewhere throughout the life and ministry of Jesus. Though these two synoptic gospels tend to be very similar in terms of the story and memoir, but they differentiate in the syntax, mood, phrasing, and the style of writing. Among these two passages from both of these gospels, it is clear that Matthew did not copy the writings of Mark’s gospel from word to word but rather…

    When I review what we have learn in this class I realized how much I didn’t know about Jesus, or even anything in the book.
