With the case of Judas, I think that the betrayal was supposed to happen in order for the atonement to take place. Who else was there that could have wanted to betray Jesus? I cannot think of another dispel that would be willing to sell Jesus. Judas was needed to sell Jesus, which led to His captivation by the Romans, His trial, and later His death. The betrayal had to happen to end with the result of Jesus’s death.
The play uses allegorical characters to evaluate the question of a Christian’s salvation and how man must attain it. “The plot of Everyman obviously consist of a test of Friendship made by a worldly young man when he suddenly learns that God has summoned him to his reckoning” (Conley, 1969, p. 374). Author’s Perception of the Play In the morality play “Everyman”, the author shares his comprehension of death and how death’s treatment is a symbolic message that comes from God. The idea of the play is that God sends his message through Death, which humans can’t avoid
The speaker creates an impression that denotes a sign of urgency by repeating the word “wind” through the poem. The entry of sin, fall of man, and the ultimate sacrifice by Jesus followed urgent decisions and risks equated to the pattern of wind. For instance, the description of the decay of a farmhouse in the first stanza ricochets the prophetic description of Jerusalem just before the destruction and the second advent as recounted by Christ. The narrator also uses imagery in some of the phrases in the initial stanza to create a clear message of sin and redemption. Exemplified by, the use of “knifing in the wounds” (I, 15) and “whipping the shoulders worry-bowed too soon" (I, 13) which pointed to the painful death of Christ through crucifixion.
In the title, “The Burial of the Dead”, the word 'burial' implies one of the unavoidable rituals of human life, and at the same time expands the image to the suffering and passion of Jesus himself. Death is not to be taken as the final end, rather it should be seen as the possibility for rebirth. This is where other religions, namely Hinduism and Buddhism also create a connection with the poem. The concept of reincarnation defines death as “as a cycle from rise to fall and then from fall to rise” (Liu,
Scholarship is divided on the interpretation of the creation of “new heavens and new earth,” where death will re-appear a phrase which is found in the Old Testament only in the book of Isaiah. The death in the “new heaven and new earth” in Isaiah can be seen to be contrary to John’s revelation about “new heaven and new earth” in Revelation 21:4 which say “He will wipe away every tear from their eyes. Death will exist no longer, grief, crying, and pain will exist no longer, because the previous things have passed away.” Scholars
Since God had punished them by their exile to Hell, Satan takes advantage of this situation. He evaluated the hand he was dealt with and formulated a plan with Beelzebub. They vowed to that “to do ill” would be their “soul delight”. Whatever good and pure actions of God would follow, Satan and his legion of angels would “pervert that end”. This speech and resolution of Satan is the point of contention with various critics about whether or not Satan is truly a hero.
Sonnet “XIV” (Holy Sonnet 14) John Donne’s poem “Sonnet XIV” delves into the speaker’s relationship with God and his enemy, Satan. Donne’s resolves the conflict of an overcrowded relationship through Paradox. Donne mainly relies on Paradox to convey the speaker asking God to be free from the enemy and sin. The Form of John Donne’s poem “Sonnet XIV,” is a source of tension. When conflicting elements resist one another tension is produced.
The person mentions he cannot see Love (God) because he does not deserve to, and he should go to hell. But Love (God) poses a rhetorical question towards the person mentioning that Love has served the high price for the persona sins. This poem emphasizes the truth of the relationship between the Creator and the created, and the rhymes in the poem rings for the relationship presented in this situation. For “who made the eyes, but I” (Herbert, line 6) the word eye and I echo each other, and it implicates the relationship between looking and the eye. The eyes were made for looking and looking upon the Creator.
“Fear,” “Hurt,” “Kinds of Tears,” and “Tears” are examples of poems which suggest the sense of self pitying sentimentality which marks so many of the deleted poems. Jennings is so obsessed with visions of despair, and with her need to give expression to sad
