I asked myself, “How can someone who suffered such an unfortunate fate be so positive and light about this situation?” I suppose it had something to do with the 20 years plus since his release from imprisonment that led to this eventual wisdom, that coupled with his faith in God. It made me think of the severe implications one moment of poor judgement can lead to. I suppose some of us need to learn things the hard way, for me personally jail is too hard. However, no one human being is perfect and sometimes we are caught up or overwhelmed in our emotions. Some individuals will sacrifice anything for money and Patrick Jagessar was no exception.
The first example is in Much Ado About Nothing when the loving Leonato turns his back to his daughter. Leonato is friendly throughout the story until his honor is harmed by the accusations of Claudio towards his daughter and then he turns his back on her in rage since of it. The next example is in the same poem where the villain Don John is revealed to still do his devious act because of his honor not wanting to fit into the Prince’s garden. This was revealed to the reader first, but Benedick always had suspicions. Another example of this happening is in the book The Outsiders, when Johnny gave his life to save the kids in the church and was honored by everyone for his sacrifice.
One of the most important evidence for this is the transformation of the disciples. Before and after the crucifixion the disciples were timid and fearful, they were terrified of being killed but something changed and that was the appearance of Jesus bodily risen from the dead. The moment they saw Jesus again they were all transformed because they knew the truth. They finally understood that Jesus was God incarnate and that he saves people from sin. That is why all the disciples had a radical change and became bold witnesses to everything they had seen, even to the point of dying for their beliefs.
He originally planned to return Joseph to Jacob. His main concern, however, was himself. (vs. 30) Selfishness consumed the brothers. Even Reuben’s apparent kindness was self-motivated. To cover up their transgression they killed a goat kid and dipped Joseph’s coat in it.
But he realizes Okonkwo his dad betrayed him by killing his adopted brother. And Nwoye 's betrayal of his own father would be converting to be a christian and so he converts to get back at his father for his crime. Nwoye later finds such a joy and love for being a Christian. One reason being the influential wonderful Hymns about, “Darkness and fear, ignorant of the love of God,” they brings grace to Nwoye. (TFA pg 154) Nwoye can relate to these teachings that he learns about in church because of his past expirenienses with losing a best friend and being in a dark place and then finding the light with this peaceful
Dorian blames Basil for his sins, and Basil essentially dies for Dorian’s sins. This is likened in the Bible because Jesus Christ “was delivered over to death for our sins” (Romans 4:25). The aptitude of self-sacrifice is perhaps the most prime characteristics of God, and as Basil displays this quality it makes him godlike. Basil loves Dorian despite everything, and it physically hurts him to see how his pure creation has been altered, how his muse has been changed. Even when it seems that all is lost, Basil begs Dorian to “Pray” and to repeat the verse from the Bible that says, “‘Though our sins be as scarlet, yet I will make them white as snow’” (Wilde 162).
Due to the fact that Dimmesdale is a minister, he felt immense guilt and sorrow for his sin and frets about it throughout the entirety of the novel. We see him regretting his sin and wishing he could stop having this strong feeling of guilt present in his life. This guilt is built because of the overwhelming sense of religion in his life. He is expected to obtain his role as a minister in the community and as a follower of God. In the end, we see Dimmesdale confess on the scaffold that he is the one who had an affair because he was unable to take the guilt anymore.
3. The reason why Florence death happen before he was able to see the Golden Carp is because Florence death, plays an important role in the development of Antonio’s growing into a man, seeing his close friend die before he could find peace in a god affected his views about his god in a big way. I also believe that it had supported Cico idea of the church god being a jealous god, since Florence died right before he was able to meet a “new God.” 4. Gabriel’s answer to tony question was that he did not believe that things were evil, but that people fear them because they did not understand them. He uses the event at Tellez house how he was afraid of the evil, but Ultima was not since she knew what was happening.
This shows how Nwoye’s relationship with Okonkwo is going to go downhill because of Nwoye. Nwoye converts to Christianity for multiple reasons, one of them being that he finds it as a motive to get back at Okonkwo for the crime of killing Ikemefuna, and because he wants a different way of life. He also wants to convert so he can learn reading and writing and gain a basic education, which of course Okonkwo is not pleased with, he wonders why and how he was able to father a weak and feminine son. “‘How then could he have begotten a son like Nwoye, degenerate and effeminate?’” (Achebe 153). This shows how Okonkwo is embarrassed and ashamed to have Nwoye as a son.
