Most academic techniques are used in the everyday life to find the real meaning to the intention of an author’s text or writings. Most at times biblical criticism is done to find accuracy of an original meaning of a text of a scripture in within the bible. A historical method used in the biblical criticism helps to find the various historical events which might have occurred during the period of history. An example includes an historical movement in the biblical criticism about the historical Jesus, his doings and things he said in some scriptures. Thus, this essay talks about the importance of the originality of various events which should be known about the messages of some authors in scripture in the bible to the audience, by using Form Criticism in the New Testament, Redaction Criticism and Textual Criticism to describe the deduction of an original message by an author.

One prime example of this is when Anatole, the interpreter between the Price family

But what is the reason why McCarthy decided to implement so many allusions into his work? Doesn’t that degrade the originality of his text? Some of the premises of these novels, like the fact that both novels have protagonists that are, either in a metaphorical, or a non-metaphorical way, a father and a son figures; and the environment which is very similar to the environment of some parables, show close resemblance with the Bible. The goal of this paper will be to look more into these breadcrumbs that McCarthy left us, especially when it comes to the biblical motives in order to get a better understanding of these allusions which could ultimately bring to a better understanding of these two novels. Even though some elements in McCarthy’s work are obviously inspired, could it be the combination of influences that are used in different context that makes his work

Paul’s epistles are to Romans, two to Corinthians, Galatians, Ephesians, Philippians, Colossians, two to Thessalonians, two to Timothy, Titus, and Philemon. Six letters are disputed letters, and other seven ones are recognized as being undisputed.
