Not only did the blood correspond with the crucifixion stories, but it matched Jesus’s blood type. “The results of the study shocked the world. The host was human heart tissue with the blood type, AB, which is the rarest of all blood types” (Connolly). Jesus’s blood type was discovered in Lanciano when, the “blood” or wine offered at mass actually turned into the flesh and blood of Jesus Christ. Similarly, Zugabie also discovered AB blood on the Shroud, evidence rather convincing due to the rarity of AB
However, the central theme evident in both the pictures is the notion of sin and punishment. The pictures depict the spiritual predicament of mankind and mankind given over to sin, which is completely oblivious to God’s law and the fate he has prepared for mankind. Lust is evident in both the pictures through the appearance of figures engaged in amative acts. Distinction between various classes of people is also evident in both the pictures. Bosch represents the hellish counterpart of the heavenly mansions in both the pictures, dominating the foreground with new motifs.
They were each responsible for the false teaching and doctrines that they were transmitting to the Jews. The Pharisees belief that the Law as open to interpretation as well as the great value they placed on the Law, especially the oral Law, saw them placing importance on their works and outward piety. Jesus saw the Pharisee's self-righteousness and pride. In Luke 11:39 He tells them, “Now do ye Pharisees make clean the outside of the cup and the platter; but your inward part is full of ravening and wickedness.” Unlike the Pharisees, the Sadducees believed the was that the Law that was given to Moses was to be interpreted literally.

Well according to Aylmer the birthmark is “deemed an almost fearful distinctness.” Aylmer goes into great detail in providing the location, size, shape, and color of the birthmark. Readers may wonder why does he worry about the mark so much, and Hawthorne provides Aylmer’s thought process. “It was the fatal flaw of humanity which Nature, in one shape or another,
Montague! See, what a scourge is laid upon your hate, That heaven finds means to kill your joys with love. ”(5.3, L301) Interpreting this quote, the Prince talks about heaven. which in context is connected to god.
Humanity seems to be in revolt against both God and humanity. Then, God is deus duplex, meaning that while He provides grace and mercy through Jesus Christ, there is wrath and darkness in the world. The world is equally a paradox, therefore, both have been created and has fallen, both are good and corrupt and has the potential for good and evil. And despite all of this, God can still do good in the evil world and culture … which He, by the way,
Liesel’s life represents beauty in the wake of brutality. Beauty in the wake of brutality means something that is good in the middle of evil. For example, the Sodom and Gomorrah story in the Bible (Genesis 19). The two cities are evil and God is going to destroy them but there is one family that is good and he saves them. The family represents beauty in the wake of brutality.
Proctor also admits to elizabeth “ My honesty is broke, Elizabeth; I am no good man.” (Miller 136) In saying this, proctor takes responsibility for what he did, thus proving that he knows his actions are what caused him to be where he is at.

Using a hyperbole to describe something helps to communicate ideas that have meaning to the reader. “His wrath towards you burns like
Further, it is believed that many among Mark’s audience may have been facing persecution as a result of their Christianity. Pity is defined as “sympathetic sorrow for one suffering, distressed, or unhappy.” Mark’s audience may well have been experiencing at least one, if not all three of these emotions for which the use of empathic language could have been more effective. Moreover, such oppression would have called for a sympathetic response as seen in Jesus’ reaction to the leper. This is corroborated in other pleas for sympathy throughout Mark’s Gospel.
Anne: I know. I know. But afterall it is the star of David isn’t it?” Anne has a positive outlook towards her religion, but Peter thinks of it negatively. Due to this, when the Nazis finally find them in the annex, Peter panics and starts thinking of only the negative.
God has a right to be angry at the human world. Humans make mistakes left and right, but we don’t sin in purpose. God forgives us for our sins, but the Author of “Sinners in the Hands of an Angry God” said something different. Jonathan Edwards told many that even the smallest sin, even a sin that can easily be set right, deserves the same punishment as killing someone.
As compelling as it is to agree with the persuasive argument Richard Dawkins made about how God was a being who was a cruel, “capriciously malevolent bully…” (Dawkins 1), whom was very judgmental and remorseless in the Old Testaments. You firstly have to put in the matter that even though the punishments given by God may seem merciless, it may have just been a way God had given us to redeem ourselves from the terrible deed that we had committed. We have to remember we are all the children of God and that makes God our Father. Children when given a punishment, sometimes will accept it because they know that is what they deserved, but most of the time they will be guaranteed to be angry and perceive their punishment as unfair or unreasonable.
