This includes learning to open up to the people closest to him, showing kindness and love to those who have shown kindness to him, and finding self-worth in the age of Jim-Crow. At the beginning of A Lesson Before Dying, Jefferson was a character that didn’t want to speak or interact with anyone, including family members and old friends. Whenever he did, he talked to them in a rude and condescending manner. As we learn later in the book, he does this because his perspective on life has changed drastically. The most prominent example of this is on page 130, when Jefferson he tells Grant, “Manners is for the living” and,“Food for the living, too.” This shows us that he sees important values as things for the people that have a shot at life, not for those with little chance.
Character: Data* Information Giver- In the movie, Data is an intelligent young boy, and he has some extremely useful gadgets with him, that he developed. Data is seen by the other boys as a person who can solve their problems. He is usually able to answer any question that the boys ask him. In the movie, he creatively enters Mikey’s house through the use of a zip line. Even though Mikey’s mom did not approve of this activity, the rest of the boys thought it was a clever and audacious idea.
We can say that a relationship between these two men can be described as a great companionship, and George once said to Lennie “I want you to stay with me, Lennie. Jesus Christ, somebody’s shoot you for a coyote if you was by yourself” (Steinbeck, 1965, p.7). The words can be shown that George worried about his friend even though he complained about him a lot. Furthermore, George is just an ordinary person, as many other people, who has a dream to have and own a small land as well as living peacefully in that place. As he mentioned, “We are going to get the jack together and we are going to have a little house and a couple of acres and a cow and some pigs ” (Steinbeck, 1965, p.8).
While both Elisha and Jesus healed lepers, Elisha did not even meet the leper nonetheless touch him. This leads one to question why Jesus touched the leper and the significance of this decision. I think that the leper not only asked Jesus to cleanse him, but perhaps more importantly, show him mercy in a society that ostracized and persecuted lepers. Jesus responds by literally stretching “out his hand” and touching him, which implies that even lepers were members of God’s people. Therefore, by touching the leper and making a physical connection, Jesus cured him of his debilitating disease and, perhaps more importantly, liberated him from his social exclusion.
advent (what people expect); reversal of expectation (what Jesus says); the new vision and action (how people must change) to explain the purpose and meaning of selected parables. The example used in this report is the Good Samaritan parable. In the parable two well-known figures in society, a priest and a Levite, see the man needing help but choose not to help. The priest and Levite would have known the law of loving your neighbour as much as yourself, but chose to walk by, not bothering about the man. This is when Jesus reverse’s the expectation of the crowd or reader as he puts a Samaritan, (a person or group of people who were hated in those days) as the caring person, who looks after the man.
Body paragraph #3: Towards the end of this book you see the boys get comfortable or somewhat used to death and killing so much so when the large boulder or rock of some sort hits and kills piggy the boys just stare. They compare their friend piggy’s body to it looking like a pig 's dead body. One of the boys are talking about piggy 's dead body, “Piggy 's arms and legs twitched a bit, like a pig 's after it has been killed.” Pg. 165 These boys are so immune to death now it seems so normal to them. I used this quote to show you again that society needs to recognize that man is evil and capable of a lot of horrific things such
Neither one of them was enjoying their current situation, but they were learning and growing, and finding how to love. They had every right, in the eyes of other humans, to seek revenge and be cold-hearted. However, the two men, Stephen Kumalo and James Jarvis, were able to look past their differences and be empathetic towards each other. The pain of one gave him the ability to understand the pain of the other, and they were able to both rise above their grief as companions. In order for shalom to be rebuilt, it must first be broken.

“... And what about the fire? And I’ve got the conch--” “You haven’t got it with you,” said Jack. “You left it behind. See, clever? And the conch doesn’t count at this end of the island-- (pg.150).” While the boys were playing a game, which goes like one of the boys’ acts as the pig and the others, with their spears, chase after him, Simon was crawling out the forest to tell them the truth about the beast, but the boys thought Simon was the beast, and killed him.
