I was somewhat reluctant to give it a try. With many prayers and asking God for his favor, grace, along with the focus and tenacity to understand all that was ahead of me. However, after researching several universities, I felt strongly God was leading me to enroll at CCU. This verse comes to mind in writing this paper, “Now go; I will help you speak and will teach you what to say” (Exodus 4:12 NIV). Reflection Paper Introduction The Bible teaches us that our first calling is to serve Christ.

Russell named his group the "Millennial Dawn Bible Study". The group began a systematic study of the bible. They compared doctrines taught by different churches and compared this to the bible. The published what they learned in books and newspapers. In 1886, the Watchtower Bible and Tract Society was founded and quickly became the vehicle through which the "Millennial Dawn" movement began distributing their views to others.
He uses the proposal that we are more apt to learn about people in the past that are familiar to us or that we can develop a personal connection with, the idea that we reflect on the past in search for our own religious identities and lastly, that we do these truthfully. I find this approach to be mostly accurate. I agree with his first idea, that we are more willing to study what we find familiar and can connect with. Now Fea does offer another idea to the integration of Christianity and history. Another historian that would offer a argument of what it means to be a Christian historian is Dr. Mike Kugler.
Overall, the Life of Saint Benedict written by Gregory has similarities to Rule of Benedict and explains some of his reactions told by his followers. In the beginning of the book, Benedict describes himself as a loving father giving instruction to his children (7). Benedict frequently quotes scripture in the beginning of
He creates credibility by referring to the bible, because the bible is the one book Christians do not question because it was written by God, therefore by making constant reference to the holy book it proves that what he saying is true. Although pastor Milton makes reference to a book that was written many years ago; he manages to relate it to the audience by comparing life from then, to their everyday life now. Pastor Milton uses signpost at the end of his sermon by saying “to conclude” as early as ten minutes, before the end of his speech. He does not use signpost at the beginning of his speech because he is introduced to the stage by someone else that does use signpost by saying the pastor’s name. In my opinion, I think pastor Milton does a great job at public speaking.
After he left the region that he had been in the Apostle Paul still communicated with and oversaw the churches that helped establish. The Apostle Paul corresponded with the churches by letter and these epistles became incorporated into the New Testament of the sacred text of the bible. In his communications, the Apostle “Paul regularly provided his churches with written, authoritative instructions in his letters” (Hanges, 1988, p. 288). The Apostle Paul’s epistles contained “specific

This paper will examine various sources to obtain how anointing was used in ancient Israel. The purpose is to determine what value anointing had and who was privy to such service. I will attempt to give a true interpretation to the best of my knowledge to answer the question, how was anointing used in Ancient Israel? Much of this research will rely on the Bible and my interpretation. However I have found other interpretation and will included those points of view.
Matthew 24:24-51 is the main passage of scripture that includes the importance of always being faithful. When we read these seven verses and the passages of scripture in the before and after verses, we see how Jesus is preparing his disciples, including us, for the future. In the first few verses of Matthew 24:45-51 Jesus tells his disciples a story about how remaining faithful until the very end
Below write 200 words stating and outlining 3 KEY POINTS gained from the lecture material and explain why you consider them key points. My first main point is how Jesus is presented as the fulfillment of the promise by Yahweh to sent the Messiah, ‘The one who saves’, in the New Testament. The Gospel texts describe who Jesus is or what he did and are linked to Old Testament texts. This important as it associates and further bring together all parts of the Bible as the New Testament is written in light on the Old Testament. Also the version of Jesus presented in the Synoptic Gospels is different from the Gospel of John.
