Another argument against Petrine authorship is “Paulinisms.” Some scholars argue that the theology of 1 Peter appears to be Pauline in nature. Sproul acknowledged this similarity but argued that it should be accepted as evidence of the inspiration of the Holy Spirit in the life of both men since they were communicating the “same gospel, the same ethic, the same truth.” Along with the above, other arguments against Peter’s authorship of the letter include the supposition that it was written by Silvanus, its lack of information about the historical Jesus, and the dating of the letter in relation to the persecution described in the letter. On the whole, though, the evidence for Petrine authorship of 1 Peter is convincing. The words of R. C. Sproul are apt here, “if you come to the text already persuaded that it is the Word of God, inspired by the Holy Spirit, then God has to say only once that this letter was written by the Apostle
Therefore, these similarities help show that both of these forms of Judaism essential came from the same roots and background. In conclusion, it is evident that although both of these denominations are a part of Judaism, there are many differences between them. Overall, one of the main differences between Orthodox Jews and Reform Jews is Reform Jews focus more on the ethics and moral of Judaism compared to the Orthodox who focus on strict rituals, commandments, and practices. Neither form of Judaism is better than another, they are simply meant for different people. Judaism is a religion filled with a variety of different beliefs and interpretations, but it is still a very popular belief system that is recognized
New Beginnings The poems “Prayer at Sunrise” by James Weldon Johnson, and “The Jewish Year” by Jessie E. Sampter both present themes that say having faith in God to provide new beginnings in your life. Conversely, the poem “The Jewish Year” by Jessie E. Sampter has a more solemn or sad but determined tone, while “Prayer at Sunrise” by James Weldon Johnson is more uplifting. I think these tones resonate from the authors past. Both authors had struggles in the beginnings of their lives but did not let that hold them back. However “Prayer at Sunrise” uses more high language than “The Jewish Year which uses much more low language.
For one, how can Moses be the author when he dies in the book, so how would have he written the whole thing? Another question that is often raised— how did Moses know about things that were before or after his time? For example, the Edomite Kings did not exist until after Moses’ death. There are also numerous inconsistencies that make really
Psalm 46 is a paradigm shift in that thought process. In 2 Chronicles 20:21 King Jehoshaphat embodied that paradigm shift in Psalm 46. Some scholars have even inferred that the King’s actions actually inspired Psalm 46, but we cannot know for certain. King Jehoshaphat put his complete confidence in God as his refuge, and not in worldly strength. If you recall the story, • Jehoshaphat was facing a great multitude • Jehoshaphat declared a fast • God answered – 1 Chronicles 20:17 (you will not need to fight) • Sing to the Lord and praised him - 1 Chronicles 20:21 • The Lord sets an ambush – 1 Chronicles 20:22 What we believe about God, is vitally important in putting our complete faith & trust in Him as our refuge.
Judaism Picture 14986202 Judaism is the foundational faith that led to both Christianity and Islam. Actually the Torah is what is known as the Old Testament in the Christians bible. Also the Quran has references to both the old and New Testament, but some of the stories do differ in concept. In Judaism, it is believed that nothing happens to the Soul when we die, and that the Souls will be resurrected when God decides it’s time. Death in this religion does mean separation of soul and body, and the soul goes to the Spirit world.
Throughout history, multiple religions have budded heads, such as Christians and Muslims. In the book “The Chosen,” by Chaim Potok, the Hasidic and Modern Orthodox people conflict with each other because of their different views of belief. The religion itself doesn’t conflict, but the people of the different religions do. Hasidic and Modern Orthodox are the two sects of the main characters which were divided off from the four sects of Judaism, which are, Reconstructions, Reform, Conservative, and Orthodox. Both religions are “types” of Jews; both of these are stricter than the “average Jew,” but Hasidism’s are considered the extreme.
The first three—Matthew, Mark, and Luke—are known as the Synoptic Gospels (from the Greek synopsis, meaning “viewed together”) because they view the life and ministry of Jesus from a similar perspective, follow the same general outline, and record a great deal of common material. The Gospel of John presents a strikingly different perspective. The author of the Fourth Gospel omits much material found in the Synoptics and includes much unique material. John also writes with a different style and dwells more on the theological significance of Jesus’ words and deeds. Scholars debate whether the author knew the Synoptic Gospels and supplemented them or was writing independently of them.
The Gospel of John contains some of the most profound truth which is expressed in the simplest way. It is full of imagery and symbolism which though concise and limited bears deep spiritual meaning. In his book, The Interpretation of the fourth Gospel, C. H. Dodd must have been the first to identify the leading ideas and thus separate in form and function the allegories of the Gospel of John from the synoptic parables and connect them with the Old Testament and the Hellenistic-Jewish symbolic tradition. That is to say the author of this Gospel mostly uses common things present in the life and tradition of his listeners and uses them to make the divine understandable. Koester in his book on Symbolism in the Fourth Gospel says that:
The souls of the wicked would be in prison forever under the earth. Those who were righteous would live again. The Pharisees were lay leaders, a sect of Judaism that held great influence among Jewish people of Jesus’ day. They were characterized by observance of both the written laws (the Torah or Old Testament teachings) as well as oral tradition. In contrast to the Sadducees, the Pharisees also believed in the resurrection
