The Jews started out being completely devoted to God. Elie wanted to know more about God and the Kabbalah, wanting to find someone to teach him all about it. “One day I asked my father to find me a master who could guide me in my studies of Kabbalah.” (Wiesel 4). This quote shows that Elie wanted to learn more about God. He ends up learning from Moishe the Beadle, one of the poorest in the town of Sighet, Transylvania.

How willing are you to give up your whole life and reputation to help others by proving a point? In “The Minister 's Black Veil” Nathaniel Hawthorne writes about a minister named Mr. Hooper who changes his whole life to try to show the people in his congregation that they are living in sin and need to change their ways. The author Nathaniel Hawthorne was born around the time when Puritan life was the norm and everyone was a Puritan.

Grant says, “ It is this rich combination of his ancestral soil, a strong sense of the richness of the American past, and that moral quality” which
Jeremiah and Roxanna had much love for each other and was a lovely love story. Rebecca and Isaac were described,as a love story in the article written by Bible Gateway authors. One similarity between the two husbands is that in Genesis 26:18-25 it describes how Issac would do anything to avoid a fight. The same situation happened to Jeremiah, where his former boss had just fired him and was inadvertently attempting to start a fight, where Jeremiah responded by “touching Holgren’s face and pulled away. It was the oddest little slap you ever saw.” What I take this as they both are very peaceful men who love and serve God.

However he in the mind of the African Americans Atticus was a wonderful man, the church even said, “‘We were ‘specially glad to have you all here’ said Reverend Sykes. ‘This church has not better friend than your daddy.” (163). What the Reverend Sykes was telling Atticus’s children was that Atticus was helping free one of their dear friends so they considered him a dear friend too. According to the Reverend not only was Tom Robinson (the man accused of rape) a friend of the church’s but Atticus was too, they were very grateful for Atticus for he had the choice to take this case and he took it. By defending Tom, an African American man accused of raping a white girl, Atticus challenged the social norms and he fought for Tom Robinson because he thought it was the right thing to

Despite the harsh backlash of the townsfolk, her father, Atticus, became chosen to represent him in court. Meanwhile, The Chosen, tells about a Jewish boy, Reuven, and although their different religions, befriended another boy his age called Danny.

Overall, the characters in both books represent many Christ-like qualities, however three people who stand out the most are Scout, David Malter, and Atticus. Similar to Christ, Scout portrays outstanding characteristics because she treated everyone the same.
Jesus’ ministry was public so many people saw what he did and what he was about. The Gospel of Luke really highlights Jesus’ compassion towards the “outcast” of Israel, and forgiveness towards those who did not deserve it. I love that the Gospel of Luke shows that Jesus did not care about money or the “class” of people, but that he just cared for people for who they were, it was kind of his focus in his ministry.

Luke also talks about the discipleship Jesus taught, His death on the cross, and His
When the poor are involved in their own transformation, the Biblical story is integrated into their personal history and results in community transformation. Myers argues a holistic understanding of poverty through an inherently relational issue and encourages society to change its’ original reference in order to understand the impact on the individual, family and household as a whole.
