An Overview of Genesis
The book of Genesis is the first book of the Bible and opens with one of the most famous sentence that is, “In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth.” We find the story of Adam and Eve, Cain and Abel, Noah and the ark, Abraham and Isaac, and Jacob with his 12 sons which become the descendent of Israel. The overview of the big story is that god and humanity relationship, and god and Israel. The first story is that god created all things and Adams and Eve in the Garden of Eden but they rebel against god and giving the course of sin and bring death to the world.

attention. Her likeness was printed on coins; her face was recognized throughout the empire. She brought wealth and happiness to the citizens of Ephesus. The Ephesians worshiped her, and loved her dearly. Artemis set the standard for worship, politics, and the economy. She set the way of living through all that she had done for her city.
The worship of the goddess would not die down even with the invasion of Christianity. Christianity was not easily integrated into the life of Ephesus. The story of Paul in Ephesus in the Bible shows us this to a great extent. In the Acts of the Apostles, chapter 19, Paul goes to Ephesus in hopes to change them from pagans to Christians. At first, they welcomed

Eight “I AM” statements in the Gospel of John
· John 6:35 “Then Jesus declared, ‘I am the Bread of Life. He who comes to me will never go hungry, and he who believes in me will never be thirsty.”
a. Jesus had just fed several thousand people with only a few loaves of bread. Sadly, in the Jewish culture bread was a staple in their diet. He was saying that, as bread sustained them physically, He would sustain them spiritually. They did not need to look elsewhere for their spiritual nourishment – He was their life! All they needed to do was believe in Him. In today’s world Jesus might have said that He is the television of life.

He was in a family of four but he was closest to his brother (Warren) whom he spent most time together with. Staples stayed indoors and liked to draw animals.
After his dog died he announced that he would be called Jack, which was its name; this shows his love for animals. In the year 1908 he lost his mother to cancer.

Do You Really Know What Christianity Is?
Christianity can have many different definitions, depending on whom you ask.
Webster's defines Christianity as “the religion derived from Jesus Christ, based on the Bible as sacred scripture, and professed by Eastern, Roman Catholic, and Protestant bodies”.
However, everyone has different indications and personal meanings for the religion. It can be found in many American communities, which plays a vital role for Americans. This particular religion has taught Americans to live with the fear of dying, to be against each other, and also to live for somebody else's expectations. I believe that

This first Pentecostal church held a Bible school conducted by Charles Fox Parham, a holiness teacher and former Methodist pastor. The first person to be baptized in the Holy Spirit accompanied by speaking in tongues was Agnes Ozman, one of Parham's Bible School students, who spoke in tongues on the very first day of the new century January 1, 1901.In 1906 Pentecostalism achieved worldwide attention through the Azusa Street Revival in Los Angeles led by the African-American preacher William J.

These key concepts are sin and transgression. Essentially, the two words embody the same idea: evil and lawlessness as defined by God. However, the two words carry slightly different meanings and connotations upon further evaluation (ACS notes).The word 'sin' has been defined as "to miss the mark" and, according to the bible, can refer to a whole array of different scenarios. For instance, sinning could be doing something against god or another human, doing the opposite of what is right, or even failing to

The World Effects from GilgameshGilgamesh is the earliest text in existence, being over 3,500 years old, it gives insight into that time period and how people of that time thought and lived. Those cultural values of ancient Mesopotamia helped in the development of the basic ideas of both Christianity and Judaism. In knowing this, one can infer how important the story and legend of Gilgamesh is and was to the people of that time and of today's society.In knowing these facts, which go hand and hand with The Bible, historians can show that some of the texts within the body are in fact modeled from the story of Gigamesh. Such as the epic of Noah's ark, this is a great example of how some of the

As a result a The Bible was translated so Protestants may find such salvation. In fact, Luther made the translation of the Bible from Greek and Hebrew into German, and soon all the countries of Europe followed his example by translating the Scriptures into their languages. Since The Bible, was the most read book in Europe, and it was finally translated into the vernacular, literacy and self awareness increased. In addition to The Bible, many great hymns and church music began to be produced as well as changes to worship forms

People believe in creation because of their strong stand on their religion and what they are taught from the Bible. Bible teachings tell the story of creation and that’s what most people fall back on because of their belief in their higher being. The Bible starts of with the creation of Earth and goes from there to paint the picture of how it was in the beginning. There are more than 500 hundred stories of creation. Based off the Bible the Earth is tens of thousands of years old. The only problem with creation is what story is accurate ?

This does not mean that everyone regards stealing as wrong, but that the majority agrees that it is not right to do so (idea of political correctness). As the legendary King Solomon of the Bible comments, "There is nothing new under the Sun." Just as modern society regards stealing as wrong, so also did the Ancient Greeks of Dracon and Solon, as well as the Jewish population of the Biblical Era and those under Hammurabi and his code.

. The morals of today's population vary from person to person, and a topic such as homosexuality, in this instance, can be very controversial in the current events of today's world. Should a homosexual be accepted as a Christian or isolated into a world of their own? (http://www.religioustolerance.org/hom_chur4.htm)Many biblical intellectuals use the bible to condemn homosexuality. According to an online Q&A website on homosexuality and religion, I discovered that out of the "31,173 verses contained in the Bible, there are less than a dozen that allegedly deal with the topic of homosexuality." Verses such as Leviticus 18:22 which states, "Do not lie with a man as one lies with a woman

Also, when political historians gathered 15,000 writings from the Founding Era (1760-1805), 3154 citations were found in them, and of these citations the most frequently cited are from the Bible.

Whenever the basics of the Christian faith are mentioned the Resurrection is always listed among them. The Resurrection is at the heart of the Bible - it is what God has done for us in Jesus Christ. Belief in the resurrection is a major part of being a Christian.However, sometimes we are led to wonder that, if our sins were taken by Jesus as the supreme payment and sacrifice, weren't our sins covered at that point? Why then did He need to rise from the dead? A simple answer to this is that it proved Jesus was more than just a normal man - He was the Messiah and the Son of God.Some modern Christians feel that the Resurrection is impossible, and cannot accept it.

With LGBT issues emerging into the national spotlight again in recent decades, John Boswell argues that the Bible is not explicitly against homosexuality and that the root of Christian antigay feelings should be found outside of Scripture.
Boswell commences his argument by stating that the early church did not have access to New Testament writings that discouraged homosexuality. He goes as far as to say that the word “homosexual” is not even mentioned in the Bible. In fact, there is not a Greek word for homosexual in Hebrew, Greek, Syriac, or Aramaic, which

Do we go to a place of everlasting reward or eternal torment? Are we destined to be reincarnated, coming to life again in a different body in a seemingly endless cycle of living and dying? Will we ever see deceased loved ones again? Is there somewhere you can go to find the answers?In spite of centries of research, science cannot tell us when, where or how life began.

Darwin first published his ideas on evolution in 1859. It was one of the first works that went against the idea that God created the world according to the Bible. This made people wonder if the bible was right, or if Darwin was right. Since creationism has nothing to do with any subject in school we should not teach it in school. Evolution is based on scientific facts, while creationism is based on believing and having faith in the Bible. Creationism should be taught sometime in life, but there is no place for it in school. There are no facts based on creationism except one little book called the Bible. How can we teach something in school that is based on individual beliefs and one little

When George W. Bush admitted that he asked God for advice on Iraq, he made the war a religious one. I believe that asking a deity what to do in a situation where thousands of people could die is immoral. Government officials should consider basic moral arguments when laying out courses of action, instead of relying on a mythical force to guide them.I wouldn't be surprised if the Christian God actually wanted George Bush to be president, as Bush claims he did, because Bush's actions are consistent with some of the terribly immoral and contradictory situations in the bible. For instance, the bible says, "the LORD is a man of war" and also describes him as a "God of peace". Similarly, on July

The Protestant Reformation was a series of events that happened in the 16th century in the Christian Church. Corruption overtook the Catholic Church; people saw a need to change the way it worked. People like Martin Luther and John Calvin saw the corruption and tried to stop it. They did this by challenging papal authority and questioning the Catholic Church’s ability to define Christian practice. They argued for a religious and political redistribution of power into the hands of Bible- and pamphlet-reading pastors and princes. Thus, leading to a split in the church between Catholics and various Protestant churches.

As civilizations progressed through the years so did our justice system and the American people incorporated capital punishment into our laws. Our laws first started with an eye for an eye. Years later the Bible encourages the practice of capital punishment. There are several scriptures in the Bible that speak about punishment, such as: Matthew, Corinthians, Peter, and Hebrews.

One reason as to why humanist criticisms of the Catholic Church contributed to the Reformation
(rather than being the cause of it) was because Humanists such as Erasmus who wrote many
books in which he made people aware of the abuses of the Catholic Church. Humanists study
original texts and Christian Humanists study the original texts of the bible. From doing so,
humanists such as Erasmus were able to convince people and make people aware of how far
the Catholic church had strayed from teachings in the Bible. For example, in his 1504 book ‘The

A controversial issue arises as to whether being Jewish can be considered as a race but from the definition of themselves, all Jews have a common ancestral origin, which can be traced back to Abraham and all have a common geographical place of origin which is described in the Hebrew bible as land where Abraham made a covenant with God and was promised (Miller, 2003).
