This can be traced back to the first vegetation in the world which was in Mesopotamia. Also, there can be more historical background within chapter which is the serpent. There have been many meanings of this animal that can be associated with the devil. Grammatical stage The serpent was a manipulating factor of the story because it demonstrates that the devil is present in original sin. “Now the serpent was more subtle than any other wild creature that the Lord God had made”(Genesis 3:1).
This paper revolves around two different foci one Daniel as a historian or a prophet and the other, Book of Daniel as the triumph of apocalyptic literature. The question of Daniel being a prophet or a historian has been vexed since ages. The first six chapters are evidently on history told by a Jew named Daniel who was captured by Nebuchadnezzar and brought to the kingdom of Babylonia, from the city of Jerusalem. The first six chapters also brings about this concept of God is in control of whatsoever befalls and also that he protects all his apostles. The second segment of the text, chapters 7-12 is the one that really fascinates the reader.
An allusion is the act of alluding or making of a casual or indirect reference to something. A biblical allusion is a reference to a religious figure or object. Biblical allusions are placed throughout the novel Lord of the Flies. Throughout this novel these allusions play a large role in the story and as well as an ideal place in the story. One of the first allusion I noticed in the novel was with the character Simon.
As stated above, apocalyptic literature is concerned with the heavenly realm and the past, as well as featuring a ’restlessness with the imperfections of the present and…quest for a new and total solution to the human problem’. Both the apocalyptic visions of Daniel 7-12, and in the preceding six paraenetical chapters deal particularly with the supernatural and the future. The overall focus is the judgement of God toward the enemy, and the hope of his future kingdom. Before discussing the key characteristics of apocalyptic literature, it must be noted that it bears many similarities to the prophetic genre. Indeed, scholars suggest that apocalyptic is a development of Jewish prophetic literature.
Human creation, is a hugely debate to a confusing topic and have no real solid explanation.

However, in the same theme of the stories, there are sources of similarity and differences. Even though both The Epic of Gilgamesh and Genesis are similar in that they all use the floods for a destruction, both the stories are different from each other in the distribution of roles within the gods and a way to warn the extermination from the gods. First, the similarity between The Epic of Gilgamesh and Genesis is the relevance with the flooding that used to exterminate the human. To prove the occurrence of the flood, chapter 5 of The Epic of Gilgamesh records, “For six days and six nights the winds blew, torrent and tempest and flood overwhelmed the world, tempest and flood raged together like warring hosts (line 62-63, p. 21)”. Also in Genesis, the text “The waters flooded the earth for a hundred
Wilhelm Leibniz argued that everything that exists has an explanation of its existence. Therefore, the universe has an explanation of its existence (“Lecture 4,” 2018). The origin of the universe and life is God himself. The creation story in the first two chapters of the bible is how Christians believe that the universe was created. People’s beliefs and interpretations of the origin of the universe not only differ but they also impact the lives of those individuals through their worldviews.
Their gods though, consist of Olympians, nature divinities, underworld deities and other Greek gods. They later were known as the Heathens or Norse. The creation story of the Hellens begins from the flood in the story of Noah’s Ark. They were placed on the Ark to create human descendants.

In this paper I will present how Myanmar Christian read the bible in their own context by using Genesis Chapter 2-3, focus on how Myanmar Christians traditionally understand the creation of woman Eve, and how Myanmar culture view on women. The book of Genesis is written in the form of history. The book begins with the creation and closes with the death of Joseph in Egypt.

Genesis chapter 2, explains the creation of man on the sixth day and also the creation of woman.
Secondly, Islam and Christianity have a place of worship and holy book with a mosque and Qur’an for Islam, and also a church and bible for Christianity.
