Harry Potter shares similarities with the stories in the Bible in regards to themes, narratives and characteristics. A few examples would be: The persecutions of the “chosen ones”: Harry Potter’s beginning is similar to that of Jesus and Moses, as they all share the “saved-saviour”-myth: Forecasts have prophesied that they will, in some way, save the people, wherefore the person in charge feared to loose their power – making them try to kill them: When King Herod hears about the Three Wise Men who are on their way to find the new born king of the Jews, Jesus, he decides to kill every boy to the age of two, out of fear that the baby will rob him of his powers. The Pharaoh in Egypt, threatened by a potential revolt against his authority by his
TREACHING THEOLOGICAL CONCLUSION BRS 124 ESSAY ACTS 17 vs.16-34 In this passage of Acts of the Apostles indicates the journey of Paul to the place called Athens.

This conversion was a unity of the nation to boost the ethnic identity between the two superpowers, the Roman Empire and the Persian Empire.
Paul persecuted many Christians throughout his early adult life. Eventually, Paul surrendered his life to God and is credited with writing thirteen books in the New Testament, including one of the most famous books ever written, Romans. Paul’s testimony is a tremendous story of how God can turn a wicked person in to a great role model and leader. This is the quite opposite story in Shakespeare’s Macbeth, however, as the main character Macbeth was a glorified warrior and battle hero.
Introduction The first few books of the New Testament relate Jesus's ministry on earth. Jesus preforms many miracles and institutes excellent lessons for all mankind. One passage, in John 8, is an example of this. In it, Jesus wards off people who were going to stone an adulteress by saying, “He who is without sin among you, let him throw a stone at her first.”
Virgil is a metaphor of Jesus who comes to rescue us from the dark place of sin and damnation to a life of victory in him. God was moved with compassion for mankind and sent his son Jesus to die for the sins of the world. Contrary to the way the world views heroism Dante displays heroic behavior when he realized that despite his own sense of unworthiness he needed God to be victorious. The Christian view of heroism is unlike the classical view because a depend totally on God to deliver and rescue us from our circumstances and sin. The Bible says, “for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God (Romans 3:23, New International Version).”

This is described to be said, as the Saints believe that God himself sent his only son, Jesus Christ, to save all mankind from their sins. God is said to be the Heavenly Father who listens and answers all prayers and feels sympathy towards them. Later on God was worshipped as the Redeemer, the central guy, to all mankind of the church.

It is fascinating to note Suchocki’s words “Letting go of one world, he must participate in the creation of another.” Though this statement would mean different in the context of Simon and the prostitute, in the current context, this would deal with more than having accepted Jesus Christ, and being made new in him. This would mean to suggest that one understands the truth about Jesus as not only the Son of God, but in the current context, as one who died for the sins of the world, because God’s love is manifested in him and through his death, and that he is the risen Christ to this day. Furthermore, if one understands Jesus to be alive, he or
God wanted to show man that he too can sacrifice and suffer; therefore he sent Jesus down to dwell among man to show man that God can be flesh. Jesus differs from man in that, he is the word of God and was sent by God as an example of himself for man. Jesus did not have the same flaw of curiosity as man had. Jesus was able to teach and spread God’s word without doubting its context. Jesus was believed to be the Messiah that the people of Israel wanted to free them from slavery.
