His uncles, the 400 Mimixcoas, who hated Mixcoatl, killed and buried him. Quetzalcoatl looked for his father and found his bones and buried them in the Hill of Mixcoatl (Mixcoatepetl). Informed of this, the murderers, Apanecatl, Zolton, and Cuilton, told Quetzalcoatl that they would be angry if he inaugurated (drilled with the fire sticks) his temple (on the hill) by sacrificing a rabbit or a serpent, because the required sacrifices were an eagle, a jaguar, and a kind of wolf. Quetzalcoatl told the three animals that they would not die, but that, on the contrary, they would eat the three uncles to inaugurate the temple. He went to the temple through an underground gallery and lit the inaugural fire.
After a while, Cain took his brother Abel to the field and killed him. Later, the Lord asked Cain, “Where is your brother?” Cain answered, “I know not. Am I my brother’s keeper (Moser, 1999: 4)?” The Lord said, “What have you done!
My thoughts have trapped me and made me flee from you!”(Pg.173). Antonio believes he has sinned as he questions God for punishing his brothers who in his eyes are great men of intentions as they’ve been through the war. His begging then represents his fear towards God showing that even questioning him may attract consequences. He becomes petrified that he would be punished and eventually fail his family because he wouldn’t fit the criteria being a coming selfish
However, the Bible also gives us examples of people who put to death their worldly passions and pursue righteousness through the discipline of self-control. In the Old Testament, a man named David was chosen to be king during the reign of King Saul. King Saul was jealous of David and wanted him dead so he searched for David in order to kill him. On one particular outing of Saul and his men who were searching to kill David there arose a certain opportunity for David to kill Saul. Saul was in cave and was very vulnerable while David was also deeper inside the cave.
In the excerpt for Night by Elie Wiesel, Elie was in disbelief of what his God let happen but he tried to live with it even though he could never forget it. In the passage he says, “Never shall I forget those moments which murdered my God and my soul and turned my dreams to dust.” Elie mentions his God being murdered because he could not believe his God let all of this happen, let all of those people die. The narrator’s choice of the word “murdered” in that sentence helps show the reader how horrified the author was. Elie’s purpose of the message he was trying to convey was traumatized he was about the people being murdered left and right, and his God was letting it happen.

Hosseini portrays Amir’s quest for redemption beautifully throughout his life as an innocent teenager in the enthralling and serene city of Kabul to his life as a family man in The United States of America. Through Amir’s life, Hosseini clearly portrays the fact that all sins can be atoned however grave or futile they may be and by their atonement one can attain self-satisfaction and can be at peace. According to the Holy Bible, and the Old Testament, an act of committing a sin is that which “separates man from God himself” (Anonymous). Baba, Amir’s father believed that “there is only one sin, only one.
This was a sense of pride for Sartoris, weird huh that he got beat up but still prideful, but Sartoris had defended the family name. A little later in the story Snopes plans to burn down a barn and it being De Spain’s barn, Sartoris feels that it is morally wrong and decided to tell De Spain that it was going to happen. De Spain then goes out and kills Snopes. As I said early in the paragraph before this that Sartoris has a hard time deciding between being loyal to his family or the law and in this case he was loyal to the law but the rest of the family was loyal and they still wind up alone, “… no blood to stick to...” This is that non-literal sense of blood if you didn’t catch

Saul of Tarsus was a man on a mission. What would you consider a person to be that would gleefully destroy Christian churches and arrest and imprison people for the crime of being a Christian? Would you consider Saul of Tarsus forever lost; could we call Saul of Tarsus a murder? Was Saul of Tarsus a murder, did he kill Christians?
According to Donald Guthrie (1970) “With deep disturbance of spirit He announced that the betrayer was in the room with them. Jesus shows His feelings by offering to Judas the portion of honor” (p. 128). There is no doubt in my mind that the Sanhedrin Council led by Caiaphas, Chief Priest, lacked the greatest sense of conviction about what is just because in his heart was evil and only the death of Christ. Caiaphas wanted Jesus dead and plotted to have Jesus killed.
Unfortunately, his life was immediately taken away by a fatal murder that raised Jones’ essence back to heaven. Giving this account to his son meant that Coates wanted him to understand that his own race is unjustly targeted as violent beings. The fact that one of his valued friends was murdered because one white individual claimed that he felt endangered in his presence was repulsive towards Coates. This memory scorned his perception of reality of society in that he repeatedly reasoned himself that they have a negative perception towards black
