Habakkuk highlights the injustice that arises from God’s decision to allow evil to oppress the righteous. The revelation though God’s divine punishment and unforeseen promise ensured an everlasting faithfulness and trust between Yahweh and the people of Judah. The recollection and trust embodied in Habakkuk’s prayer allows for a remembrance of God’s covenant and faithfulness for his people. Habakkuk’s prayer questions God’s decision of succumbing the righteous to evil. The unforeseen plan set by God examines the faithfulness of the people as they rely only on their trust in God’s promise of delivering justice to their oppressors.
He went down to Joppa, where he found a ship bound for that port. After paying the fare, he went aboard and sailed for Tarshish to flee from the LORD.

These verses tell the story of Jonah’s flee of fear and the Lord’s anger (storm). Jonah 4:10-11 says, “You have been concerned about this plant, though you did not tend it or make it grow.

When people are concerned more with their families, friends, beauty, strength, and worldly possessions than with pleasing God He will declare depart from me (unto death?).

Simon and Jesus are therefore both killed for the truth. In the New Testament, it is written; “[Jesus]You will seek me and as I said to the Jews, where I am going you cannot come, so now I say to you. (John 13:33)” Jesus refers to his death on the cross where he later paid for the sins of mankind; He is telling his followers that no one can follow him where he is going. Similarly, when Simon dies and his last breath comes out of his body, the sea creatures drag his corpse towards the sea. He goes to a place where no one can follow him; “Softly, surrounded by a fringe of inquisitive bright creatures, itself a silver shape beneath the steadfast constellations, Simon’s dead body moves out towards the open sea.
In the section “The Cattle of The Sun God” of The Odyssey there is one specific example of this point. It is when the crew is told to not eat Helios’s cattle ,“No sooner had I caught sight of our black hull, than savory odors of fat eddied around me” (Homer line 895-898). Odysseus went to go and pray to Lord Zeus and he fell asleep, he left his men all alone with Helios’s cattle and his men were starving. In a prophecy Odysseus learned that if his men ate the cattle they would all die. Since his men were starving, they killed the cattle and ate them.
Likewise, in Matthew 13, Jesus ' parables talk about the division of disciples in Israel and the Pharisees who explicitly refuted Christ (Mitch and Sri 176). Jesus tells his disciples that the purpose of the parables is to have people hear, see, and understand him in order to follow him so that they may be given "knowledge of the mysteries of the kingdom of heaven" (Mitch and Sri 176). Christ names the division as ones who are open to his teachings and will be given some knowledge of the kingdom and those who have "closed hearts" will not receive any knowledge of the kingdom (Mitch and Sri 176). Jesus says he teaches because those in Israel reject his word, and he points to himself as the prophet "sent by God to call the people to repentance" but knows many will not acknowledge it (Mitch and Sri 176-7). It is important to note that one is not a disciple if they see and hear Jesus but do not follow him and give his whole self to Christ (Mitch and Sri
One thing that is very prevalent in the book of Jonah is God, especially chapter 3, is God giving us second chances to do the right thing. In Jonah 3:1, clearly states that God gives Jonah a second chance to share His Word to the Nivevites. We don 't need God to directly tell us to go out and share the good news because if we truly love God and want to have a relationship with him, nothing is going to stop us from wanting others to have that same love and relationship; just like when you are super passionate about something, you want others to have that same passion. If you don 't get up and preach God’s message, you may never know if you could have changed a person’s life. How awesome would it be to be responsible for someone’s commitment to God?
According to what is written, “Peter had followed Jesus to the high priest 's’ court. As he hid in the shadows, three house servants asked if he was one of Jesus’ disciples and each time he denied it. After each denial a rooster crowed then Jesus was led out of the house and looked directly at Peter” (biography.com). Peter cried when he remembered what Jesus had told him. As Luke 22.53 recalls “Peter remembered how Jesus had told him he would deny him and he wept bitterly” (biography.com).
The play Everyman requires a Christian audience to be powerful and influential. The reason for that is because the play Everyman represents many of the Christian ideals, such as kindness, loyalty, and charity, which are shown within the Bible. The play begins with the Messenger’s speech. Within his speech, the Messenger says, “You think sin in the beginning full sweet, Which in the end causeth the soul to weep.” This quote incorporates the ideology of eternal suffering as well as the idea of people’s lives coming to an end. After the Messenger ends his speech, God enters angrily as he believes all creatures are unkind to him as they are “Living without dread in worldly prosperity.” The referencing of God as a deity refers back to the religion
