Christ Jesus Jewish Law
1,026 wordsGalatians was probably written between 49 - 56 A. D. , by Paul, as it is shown in the very first verse. Paul's letter to the Galatians is a vigorous attack against the gospel of works and a defense of the gospel of faith. When Paul attended the Jerusalem Conference in 48 or 49, a decision was made that Gentiles would be allowed to become Christians without becoming Jews first (ie. have a circumcision, and follow the Jewish Laws).

Dead Sea Scrolls Holy Spirit
1,806 words1. Introduction What role does the Holy Spirit play in our lives? It played a big role in the Dead Sea Scrolls and in Pauls letter to the Galatians. The people being addressed in the Dead Sea Scrolls are Jews and Christians, so they do not yet know the modern day Holy Spirit. However, they do deal with spirits that affect their lives the same way the Holy Spirit affects the lives of the Galatians.

Bone Marrow Dna Cloning
985 wordsThe theory of adult DNA cloning is astoundingly simple: one takes the nucleus of a cell from an adult, which contains the adult s genes (DNA), and transfers it into an egg in place of that egg s own nucleus. The egg, placed in a surrogate womb can now develop into a baby that will grow to an exact copy of the adult. In reality the practice of cloning is more complicated. The only animal to have been produced this way is the now world famous Dolly. Dr. Ian Wilmut of the Roslin Institute in Roslin...
