Abraham respected Allah, and after some reluctancy, agreed that he would sacrifice his son. Right before he was supposed to be sacrificed, Allah made a lamb appear. Instead of sacrificing his own son, he sacrificed the lamb, full of purity and having no sin.

After Auld whipped a young woman, he justified his actions by quoting the Bible: “He that knoweth his master’s will, and doeth it not, shall be beaten with many strips” (33). Auld’s misinterpretation of the passage emphasizes slave owners use of religion to reinforce their power over their slaves. Christianity rationalized the concept of buying and selling human beings, and that God approved this too. In addition, Douglass used religion as a way to fuel his abolition movement. Under Master Hugh’s, Douglass began to learn how to read and write.

Washing feet was a ritual that took place during that century. “Before the Passover Festival, Jesus knew that His hour has comes to depart from this world to the Father.

10:3 And Moses and Aaron went in unto Pharaoh, and said unto him, Thus saith Jehovah, the God of the Hebrews, How long wilt thou refuse to humble thyself before me? let my people go, that they may serve me.

Similar to Hunt’s earlier paintings, Fairlight is also extremely small, only about 12 by 12 inches, but again, the amount of detail Hunt embodied within the painting is numerous and great. While others consider Hunt’s Our English Coasts his greatest masterpiece, I think that this painting is one of Hunt’s best piece as not only did it take about 6 years, it also represents how Hunt changed over the years. Since this painting was not completed in a year and the Pre-Raphaelite principle is to embody nature into the painting, Hunt had to find a way to incorporate the changes in the landscape those 6 years into the painting without removing earlier elements. This painting tests Hunt’s skill in drawing evolving landscapes and reviving his earlier work on the painting. As with Hunt’s other paintings, the detail to the environment is exceptionally detailed and individualize; thus instead of explaining the detail quality of the painting, I feel that this painting has something else worthier talking about then repeating compliments about Hunt’s delicate
