Creation Day 1 (Genesis 1:1-5) God created the heavens and the earth. “The heavens” refers to everything beyond the earth, outer space. The earth is made but not formed in any specific way, although water is present. God then speaks light into existence. He then separates the light from the dark and names the light “day” and the dark “night.” This creative work occurs from evening until morning – one day.
The priestly scribes were responsible for this plethora of authors. I credit Moses with the basic creation story of Eden and messianic redemption in the Temple service. Moses received the Ten Commandments from God. After Moses the priestly scribes manufactured a plethora of laws, moral and ceremonial. This has
Noah Noah meaning “rest” or “comfort” is played by Russell Crowe. In Genesis 5:1-6:2 we can see that Noah is a direct descendant of Adam. His father was Lamech but his mother was unknown. Noah was the father to Shem, Ham and Japheth when he was five hundred years old. Throughout the bible Noah is considered a very righteous man, he lived a perfect life in God’s eyes following all of his commandments.
In the bible it states that they split things up from good to bad, light, dark. God said “Let the waters under the heaven be gathered together unto one place, and let the dry land appear” So God called the dry land Earth and the gathering together of the waters called the Seas. For Greek creation it doesn’t really state the way they split things up but it does say that “Then out of the void appeared Erebus, the unknowable place where death dwells, and Night. All else was empty, silent, endless, darkness. Then somehow Love was born bringing a start of order.” so the Gods that created the Earth in Greek Mythology kind of just made the rules on their own.
But in the three big monotheistic religions, they believe that it was God himself who created the universe. This is stated in the first book of the old testament, the book of Genesis. When we look at the differences between Hinduism and Judaism, Christianity, and Islam; we can see there are some major differences. Hinduism is a pantheistic and polytheistic religion where Judaism, Christianity, and Islam are all monotheistic religions. Judaism is the first religion to teach the monotheistic point of view.
Chapter 5 JESUS OUR ONLY SAVIOUR Look at whom we worship and to whom we owe our salvation. This is Jesus or Jesus Christ. He is real, alive and now in heaven, acting as our high priest in a similar way to how the line of Aaron acted as high priests for over a thousand years for the Israelites until AD 70 when Judaism proper was overthrown by the Roman General Titus. Its tagline was ‘past its use by date’. Jerusalem was smashed up and rebuilt but not the Temple.
The impact of Moses Maimonides in Jewish belief, thought and prayer stretches throughout the centuries as he is recognised as “the greatest Jewish philosopher” (The philosopher’s zone- Jewish philosophy: Maimonides ABC radio). This title was given to him after his works the Mishnah Torah, the Commentary on the Mishnah and the Guide for the Perplexed. Moses Maimonides, also known as Rambam or Rabbi Moshe Ben Maimon, was born in Spain, Cordoba in 1135. At just age sixteen he wrote a paper on the correct usage of theological terms. As he grew older he advanced his knowledge and became the official doctor to the current ruler of his time, Saladin of Egypt.
The main similarities between the David statues is that they are religious statues. The man sculpted represents the biblical story, David and Goliath. In the bible, there is a story of a hero, David, who executed the hostile giant Goliath with a sling and stone. This story was a big influence to many Renaissance artists. These statues were created From 1430 to 1623 A.D.
