Brutus and Cassius had an army of around nineteen thousand legions, around ten thousand legions less but had occupied the best position as they at the top two little hills in west of Philippi. Under mark Anthony 's order, the armies between the second triumvirate and Brutus and Cassius engaged twice and the triumvirs being successful in both battles. Octavian played little role in both battles as he was young ( around 18-20 years of age) and unexperienced with combat tactics.
When the battle started, many Muslims, including Hamza, were killed. The Muslims did not have the power so they turned away and surrendered. Quraysh let them go because they felt like the Muslims suffered enough. The Muslims were defeated, but they did not feel ashamed rather they felt stronger.

From the biblical representation of Daniel the prophet started when he along with other men from Judah were imprisoned by King Nebuchadnezzar of Babylon (Daniel 1:1-4) for about 604 B.C. this imprisonment of Judah’s citizens in Babylon continued for about seventy years, as it was predicted by God through Prophet Jeremiah (Jeremiah 25:11). Daniel was the character that was seen as “Empire forecasting prophet”. Without a doubt, Daniel was a translator of imaginings, and from his interpretation, God revealed his plans for the kingdoms which will rise up to supremacy in world history. It is true that Daniel is believed to be the main prophet from Biblical scholars and major reason is that he contained all the important information which God revealed
“7 On a hill east of Jerusalem, Solomon built a high place for Chemosh the detestable god of Moab, and for Molek the detestable god of the Ammonites.8 He did the same for all his foreign wives, who burned incense and offered sacrifices to their gods.” (1 kings 11:7-8). In these two verses it clearly shows how King Solomon, the third king of Israel, tragically fell away from the Lord and started to worship other Gods. When he first became king he asked God for wisdom, and God granted him this petition and made him the wisest man ever. He did many good things in the sight of the Lord, but in 1 Kings 11:4-6 it says, “As Solomon grew old, his wives turned his heart after other gods, and his heart was not fully devoted to the LORD his God, as
As he was walking to Jerusalem he met the prophet Ahijah who was the prophet of Shiloh. Ahijah tore Jeroboam’s garmet into twelve pieces and handed him ten pieces saying that he will be ruler over those. He was given a command to obey God. Solomon wanted to kill Jeroboam by the fact that God had taken the tribes out of Solomon’s hand and given it to Jeroboam, but does not say according to the Bible. “Solomon tried to kill Jeroboam, but Jeroboam fled to Egypt, to Shishak the king, and stayed there until Solomon’s death”(1 Kings 11:40).
He took everything, including all the gold shields Solomon had made". In II Chronicles 12:2-4,9 it states again how Sheshonq or Shishak in Hebrew attacked Jerusalem “ Because they had been unfaithful to the Lord, Shishak king of Egypt attacked Jerusalem in the fifth year of King Rehoboam. With twelve hundred chariots and sixty thousand horsemen and the innumerable troop of Libyans, Sukkites and Cushites that came with him from Egypt, he captured fortified cities of Judah (ARK OF THE COVENANT - JewishEncyclopedia.com, n.d.) (Institute for Biblical and scientific studies, 2018) and came as far as Jerusalem...When Shishak king of Egypt attacked Jerusalem, he carried off the treasures of the temple of the Lord and the treasures of the royal palace. He took everything, including the gold shields Solomon had made". The Hebrew name Shishak matches the Egyptian name of Sheshonq I so it matches with the history correctly.
Rome’s hierarchy system was very strict and it was based on how much money a family or person had. (Doc D) The Emperor was at the top, then it was his court which was made up of the wealthy and prestigious, then at the bottom the commoners, and people rarely moved between classes. (Doc D) Romans believed that the only way to a peaceful existence was through violence, victory, and no one opposing their rule.

He traveled in the Tartaruspit (Tartarus actually means pit) for hundreds of years until he finally found the door to the mortal world. When he went through it, he was restarted because he didn’t belong to Tartarus so the world was confused. Publius had been brought back to life many times before as a baby into bodies like George Washington, but this time he was brought back as a man at the age of forty-five with longish, black hair and blood-red eyes. Publius had many powers that he wasn’t...
Protestants and Catholics were constantly trying to reinvent to common social norms that were already in placed in order to please their denomination. In the 1630s the Puritans, led by John Winthrop, settled in Boston with hopes of reforming the Church of England and emplacing their religion and its social values with of those who are already there (primarily Native Americans). Around twelve years later some Puritans, such as Roger Williams, Anne Hutchinson, and Thomas Hooker, tried to reinvent the morals and theology of the Puritan Community. Years later in the 1730s and 1740s there is a revival called the Great Awakening which focused on reinventing the way people conducted their life and a call for personal choice.
