Hosea The Prophet - 1,387 words
During Hoseas time, there was political, economical, social and religious strife in the country of Israel. Hosea lived in the tragic final days of the northern kingdom of Israel. During this time there were six kings within twenty-five years; four were murdered, one was captured in battle and only one was succeeded on the throne by his son. The nation was rife with economic abuses that separated the rich and the poor. Israel was so impressed with material advances that it failed to take account the eternal verities of the Covenant upon which Israels existence was predicated. Judgment, righteousness, brotherhood, and even God were forgotten in the light of diplomatic expediencies (Laymans 8-9 ...

Rise Of Monarchy In Early Isrealite Times - 976 words
The rise of the monarchy in Israel was a period of confusion and turmoil, but the readings of 1 Samuel gives some insight for the reasons of the establishment of the monarchy. The Israelites were in a time of political upheaval, corrupt judges, and relentless disbelief. The political and social status greatly affected Israel's decision to appoint a king. Because of their need for protection from outsiders and honest officials, the elders chose to organize a monarchy in hopes that Israel would reunite and survive the disorder. The elders of Israel chose Samuel to delegate a sovereign to govern over the people of Israel in anticipation that the new king would ease the political and social tens ...

Reconciling Religions - 976 words
The main difference between the three great world religions of today, Judaism, Christianity, and Islam, is the way each religion views the man known as Jesus of Nazareth. For many Jews, Jesus is a scholar, or perhaps a rabbi in the Jewish community, who overstepped his boundaries into self-proclaimed divinity; to some Jews, Jesus Christ did not exist at all. To Christians, he is the son of an all-loving and all-powerful god. Finally, for the people of the Islamic faith, Jesus is another prophet in the long line of prophets in the Jewish tradition. Despite this major difference, however, these three religions are very compatible, holding many of the same values and principles. It is these pri ...

Each religion can celebrate those who provide service to future generations through their contributions to the continuing improvement of human culture, knowledge, altruism, and environment. Each religion can inspire and support people in their efforts to build a positive long-term future for humanity. Attention to the voices and needs of future generations, along with support for each person who wants to work on their behalf, could become a significant part of all religions. Religious services could incorporate music, poetry, readings, sermons, art, worship, and prayer that focus on the ongoing stream of humanity's accomplishments. These accomplishments include ...

Epic Of Gilgamesh - 997 words

... marna Letters, which dates from the late reign of Amenhotep III into that of Tutankhamen. Scholars have long pondered an identification for the troublesome Habiru of the Letters, though have concluded these nomad-raiders must have been a separate (if possibly related) group from the Hebrews (Ibrim), who still would have resided in Egypt at the time of the royal correspondence in question (according to the traditional dating which places their Exodus some 140 years later). With his New Chronology making late-Eighteenth Dynasty Egypt contemporary with the rise of the United Monarchy in Israel, Rohl finds a Habiru/ Hebrew synchronism not only possible but certain. Looking at the detailed bi ...

Jesus Life - 1,870 words
Both historians and people connected to the subject by religious beliefs have been trying for ages to find out more about the life of Jesus. Did he really exist? Is it true what has been written in the Bible? Was he really able to cure people just by a simple touch? Was he the true Son of God? All those questions would remain open without a confirmed and certain answer. If he was a real person that lived and walked on the very same earth we do it is amazing how influential could a single persons life be. The only information we can find about him is stored in the Bible. There are no other sufficient sources that the human kind can use. His life is described in the Gospels of Matthew, Mark, L ...

Not Who Wrote It But What Gets Acrross - 705 words
In order to understand how the Pentateuch came to be we must take in account the culture of the author, or perhaps more appropriately, the authors. In the ancient times, writers were characterized by the nonentity of their writings. Instead of concerning themselves with minute details, they focused on the moral implications of the events involved. The same can be said about the foundation of the Catholicism, which is the connection of Scripture and Tradition in order to understand the true implications of the Word of God. Applying this theory to the reading and composition of the Pentateuch is crucial understanding its authorship. Modern writers are more concerned with factual accuracy of th ...

The Prophet Amos - 1,637 words
Amos is recognized as the first of the Israelite prophets whose words were recorded on a scroll. He was not a prophet all his life and never prophesied professionally. Amos earned his living as a "herdsman and dresser of sycamore figs." (Amos 7:14) Since he already had an occupation he did not have to prophesy for money. He prophesied because God had called him to do so. Amos was not a poor sheep herdsman. The word herdsman, used to describe his occupation, was not the common Hebrew word used to refer to shepherds. The Hebrew word used described the vocation of a Moabite king, King Mesha. The Hebrew word means sheep-master, and refers to the owners of a special breed of sheep, famous for the ...

Racism In America - 1,191 words
There is surely no nation in the world that holds "racism" in greater horror than does the United States. Compared to other kinds of offenses, it is thought to be somehow more reprehensible. The press and public have become so used to tales of murder, rape, robbery, and arson, that any but the most spectacular crimes are shrugged off as part of the inevitable texture of American life. "Racism" is never shrugged off. For example, when a White Georgetown Law School student reported earlier this year that black students are not as qualified as White students, it set off a booming, national controversy about "racism." If the student had merely murdered someone he would have attracted far less at ...

Asherah: The Goddess Of Israel - 3,149 words
Asherah was a West Semitic goddess first attested to in the cuneiform Ebla texts uncovered in northern Syria (modern day Tell Mardikh) dated to around 2350 BCE, where she appears as only a minor goddess in the pantheon (Smith 385). Her status was much higher in later times however, for she was a goddess well-known at Ugarit, the ancient Canaanite city-state now modern Ras Shamra in Syria, in the 14th century BCE, The Asherah that appears in the material unearthed there is the main consort of the chief god El, divine wet nurse, the progenitress of the gods, and mother of 70 children (Patai 37). Several recently discovered material remains in Palestine combined with new biblical scholarship te ...

At Lachish the remains of a temple dating to the Late Bronze age were uncovered, and among the finds there were a gold plaque used as part of the temple equipment which pictures a naked goddess standing on a trotting horse, holding two lotus blossoms. The figure wears a feathered headdress and her eyes, pubic region and the eye of the horse are all pierced, as if they once held inlays. The goddess has not positively been identified; she may be Astarte, who was associated with horses, though is always depicted as riding, not standing on them, or she may be Asherah, who ...

Paradoxes, Mythology, And Emotion In Western Religion - 1,224 words
Jung embarks upon a psychological discussion of religion through means of analysis, comparisons, and critiques of Western and Eastern tradition in hopes of finding a medium ground between the two cultures and a more stable, more fulfilled and healthy, spiritual self. As we shall discover, Jung, a Western Christian, places a great emphasis of enlightenment on the religions of the East while pointing out the inherent problems of Western discourse. The disjuncture between Jungs biography and status as a 20th century European and his apparent praise of the Eastern self point to an inherent problem in the reliability of Western ideas for this particular Westerner. While we will take the time toda ...

Christ In The Old Testament - 1,994 words
Erroneous beliefs and preconceived ideas are a lock on the door of the human mind; they have proven to be very effective in keeping the truth at bay. In the past, the belief systems of most people were acquired directly from their parents as they grew up. Countless generations clung to their inherited beliefs with great tenacity, vigorously promoting them as bequeathed truth. Yet in the vast majority of cases, the origin of these beliefs was not based on fact, but rather on supposition or hearsay. Unfortunately, this has been doubly true in the case of religious convictions. Most who have professed to be Christians have not studied God's Word to prove or disprove their beliefs, as God comman ...
