"And she brought forth her firstborn son, and wrapped him in swaddling clothes, and laid him in a manger; because there was no room for them in the inn. And there were in the same country shepherds abiding in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night. And, lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them, and the glory of the Lord shone round about them: and they were sore afraid. And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people. For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord. And this shall be a sign unto you; Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger ...

Jesus And Christology - 1,306 words
Theologians and philosophers have been trying to question who Jesus is for hundreds of year now. This time in the form of what is called the contemporary study of Christology. The thrust of Christology is somewhat dependent upon which theologian one reads. Hans Kung calls his approach Christology from below. Others simply focus on the crucifixion and the resurrection of Christ (Cunningham); others are exploring His life and work on earth (Imbelli). Some deny the fact that Jesus is God (Kung), others express strongly that yes, Jesus is part of the Triune and is God (Cunningham and Imbelli). "Christology" literally means the study of Christ.

Lord Of The Flies Analized - 831 words
When away from civilization, mans facade of civilized behavior falls away. This thought is express greatly in William Golding, Lord of the Flies. Goldings uses characters and events to prove this belief. He uses the protagonist, Ralph, as the example of how no matter how you try the instinctual savagery of humans will surface. The antagonist, Jack, is the example of the change. His metamorphosis from a civilized, optimistic British boy to a bloodthirsty savage leader is one that Golding tracks conscientiously. Then a proof of the true savagery of human instinct, he illustrates the doings of Jacks tribe. Using William Golding, by Samuel Hynes, and The Novel as a Moral Allegory by P.H. Newby, ...

... the terms 'enemy' and 'criminals' to the natives. In actuality, they are simply "bewildered and helpless victims...and moribund shadows"(Berthoud. 46). Clearly, the injustice done by the simple misnaming of someone is unbelievable. After witnessing all of these names which bare no true meaning, as well as possibly degrade a person's character, Marlow understands that he can not continue in his former ways of mindlessly giving random names to something in fear of diminishing the essence of the recipient. As a result, Marlow finds himself unable to label something for what it is. While under attack, Marlow reefers to the arrows being shot in his direction as "sticks, little sticks", and a ...

Symbols - 467 words
Symbols can play very important roles in the stories that contain them. The Masque of the Red Death by Edgar Allan Poe has three major examples of symbols that help to give the story its true meaning. The three main occurrences of symbolism are evident as a color, number, or a name. The colors in the story show strongly the attitudes, feelings, or emotions that are occurring. For example, the western or black chamber distinctively indicates a sense of death especially when compared to the other six, colorful chambers. The panes were scarlet-a deep blood color. Poe compares the color of the windowpanes to the color of blood, which implies that blood may be a factor in the plot of the story. A ...

After reading Damon and Pythias, I realized that the value of friendship portrayed in the story is also relative to me. As Damon had faith trust and honor, I remember such a friend who had faith, trust and honor in me. Such a friend is incomparable to all wealth and power this life offers. From what I remember, it was back in 1993 - I was on one of my expeditions in the misty jungles of Africa. I befriended a native there who spoke English fairly well. We drove through the jungles in my Jeep, searching for ancient pieces of art. I was an art historian looking for further roots that influenced Egyptian art.

English 1301 If you want a good friend, then you must be one yourself. That phrase always sticks in my mind when I remember my best friend Omar. Omar and I have been friends for over twenty years. We have done everything together since the day Omar moved to Jerusalem with his family. Omar was only eight back then and full of stories. I especially liked the one about how women mysteriously grew babies in their stomach six month after they get married. Two years after that, we became best friends when Omar showed me one of his fathers adult magazines. We thought that women were really weird back then. We still share that secret to this day.

Fate And Free Will In The Odyssey - 1,354 words
When we look at Greek Mythology we often run into the gods of that era. Sometimes they are merely backdrops to the human element of the story but in stories such as The Odyssey the gods play a prominent if not vital role to the central themes of the story. Fate has a place in the Greek world but its place is not the same as it is in other scenarios or worlds. It is important to understand the word before we discuss it. Fate as far as Greek mythology goes is not just fate. By most standards fate means that things occur for an unknown reason that no one has any control over. However, in the world of Greek Mythology fate does not just happen. The gods engineer fate and they interfere to make th ...
