The resurrection of Jesus is a historical event that really happened, is not just a myth or a lie like some people say it is. It is so important that history is named after this, meaning it impacted the whole world and changed history forever. Jesus the Son of God did die on the cross and then resurrected from the dead. He did what no human has ever done or will do, all because of his unending love and grace for us.

To many of the boys this has an affect on their innocence. Simon was one of the few boys who stayed back to ponder about the whole concept of the beast. “However Simon thought of the beast, there rose before his inward sight the picture of a human at once heroic and sick,”(Golding 103).

In these example Jesus is preaching and teaching God’s message in synagogues in the temple and even on a boat as there was overcrowding on the land.

Introduction The Life of St. Antony by Athanasius was a very important book to the Christian Byzantines and was continuously read throughout the early Christian world. It was a biography that was also held up as a model of the ideal life in the Byzantine civilization.
