Question 4946 Food in the Hebrew Bible
In 1000 words (maximum), discuss three different scholarly articles and their academic perspectives on a single topic. Topics can be of a historical, literary or political issue in the Bible, but modern interpretations should be avoided. Using a thesis statement as your argument, compare and contrast these three scholarly perspectives. Questions to consider in your analysis: Is their evidence solid? Why
or why not? Do the scholars lay out their arguments adequately? Use sufficient evidence? Explain themselves cohesively and coherently? Is the scholars’ reasoning logical? What conclusions can be drawn about the academic approach to the Bible?

Question 4948 Research Paper and Project
All students are required to write a traditional research paper on a narrow topic of your own choice. Once you have decided upon a topic I would strongly recommend you begin gathering materials for the assignment at some earlier point in the semester rather than waiting until week 14 to begin. The paper
should relate to themes in the course but could literally be about anything you find interesting, regarding the historical practice of faith, theological or philosophical issue of belief (or disbelief), sociologically influenced religious practice, or even a contemporary movement. It could be about an individual, a group, a scripture, a specific devotion, an event, a phenomena, but should not be of a general nature such as “The History of Islam” or “The Story of Buddhism”. Also try to refrain from writing about well-known topics very common to your own faith such as “The Seven Sacraments”, “The Five Pillars”, “The Life of Christ”, “The Prophet Muhammad” or “The Ten Commandments”. You could
however write a more narrow well-researched paper about one particular commandment, a pillar, a sacrament, or an event from the life of a religion’s founder. If you are unsure about your choice of a topic feel free to run it by me. The paper should be a minimum of 7 pages (it certainly can be much
longer), utilizing at least 5 sources. Inclusion of primary sources such as the scriptures, or the first-hand accounts (theories, history, philosophy) of an historical individual to support your position are always encouraged. You may use any academic writing style that you are comfortable with (MLA, Chicago
Manual, APA, SCI, etc.). Project ————————- 10 % Each student is also required to complete a “project” (of sorts) which will be summarized in a 5-10 page written essay. The project can be on any a topic of your choice. This may include reading a book (scholarly, spiritual, historical or fictional) or viewing a movie with a religious theme and writing a reflection coupled with a modest amount of research or historical/critical reflection. It could be a review of a religious piece of art, a reflection on a visit to a worship space, monastery, shrine, reading room, mosque or temple. This may not be a place you regularly attend, have visited during a previous quarter, or an assignment you have done for some
other course. The project might also involve an account of your visit to a worship service (other than your own faith) coupled with some preliminary research, or an interview with a person of another faith.
All projects must move beyond a mere summary of the experience or readings to an integration and dialogue of the material with course-related themes, questions or issues. Please include some sort of bibliography with your work.
Question 4949 Religion
Reflective Paper ou can write on anything from the chapter. But it has to have some connection to the reading. Here are some possible questions to get you started. Do not try to answer them all. Evaluate the authors’ definition of religion. Are such secular worldviews such as Marxism religions? How would
you define religion? Remember that your answer has to show evidence of having read the chapter. So you are not just to answer the question simply based on your own thoughts.
Question 4950 Indigenous of Africa
Answer the 5 questions with minimum of 150 words is required for each question
1. What is the relationship between humanity and gods in African religions? Give specific examples from religions.
3. What are the three main ways African religions communicate with the supernatural? Describe each.
4. What influence have African religions had on American religions? How did this happen?
5. Do you see any similarities between the religions of Africa and the religions of Native America? How do conceptions of the supernatural differ?
Do they share similarities? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WwAGJ6j2C1o
Question 4951 How often do you engage with or witness death in your work
1-) How often do you engage with or witness death in your work? How has this experience or the lack of it shaped your view of death? Has it gotten easier or harder for you to accept the fact of death? As you explain, include your clinical specialty.
2-) Reflect on the analysis of the sin of suicide and thus, euthanasia from the topic readings. Do you agree? Why or why not? Refer to the lecture and topic readings in your response.
Question 4952 The Appearance of the sacred
please read instructions** My faith and beliefs in GOD are sacred Give examples of what is sacred in your life. Give examples of sacred not mentioned in the book. Why are those people/places/things sacred? Remember, just because something is “special” to you, or important to you, does not mean that it’s sacred. There is a unique definition for sacred. To be sacred, a person/place/thing has to meet a
specific criteria. Is there actual power in the sacred places/objects, or is it just a matter of faith/superstition/ psychology? Don’t just rehash what we talked about last week. And use the readings in the chapter to base your ideas on. Remember, don’t try to answer all of these questions. I would rather have you explore a topic deeply than to try to talk about everything. And, these questions are just
examples to help you get started. If there is something else in the chapter that really interests you, then explore that. But you have to reflect on the readings, not just the idea of the sacred in your own mind.
Question 4953 religion assignment
Discuss the message[s] of the Bhagavad Gita: do you find it helpful? POST 200+WORDS IN ASSIGNMENTS
https://www.holy-bhagavad-gita.org/chapter/2/verse/49 BG 2.51: The wise endowed with equanimity

By working in such consciousness, they attain the state beyond all suffering.
Question 4954 Think piece of readings
Think Piece Each student is required to produce two think pieces on class readings. Each think piece should briefly summarize the readings, critically assess the author’s points, and pose some questions for the class discussion. The write-up should be no more than 1-2 page
Question 4955 Reflection Paper
Reflection Paper due tomorrow 10:00 p.m (so you have 24 hours).

Find in attached the article that you have to read and make a reflection paper on it (2 full pages): “The Enuma Elish”
Question 4956 Reflection Paper
hat myths are you familiar with? What are some modern myths? What myths affect/impact your life? (Now if you choose to answer one of these, make sure you understand what we mean by “myth!” It does not mean a fairy tale like the Easter Bunny or Santa Claus. You need to make sure you read the chapter and understand that. If you write your paper and talk about a fairy tale as a myth, you will not get a good grade.) What role does the Bible play in Christianity? What is your story??? What role does art play in your religious life? Is it possible to evaluate a religious myth? Is it possible to determine the veracity/truthfulness of a religious myth? Why/why not? How?
Question 4957 Spiritual and Religious journey
You are asked to write about yourself in this first paper. It is about your spiritual or religious journey. You are free to compose a paper that chronicles your path on a particular religion. If you are not an adherent (follower) to any belief then you may want to discover why you or your family does not practice a specific religion? If you have converted from one belief to another you can talk about that. Some of you may have had a specific event, an epiphany that caused a stirring of some kind of spirituality. A few of my students have given birth, been in horrific accidents, had near death experiences, and hauntings/visitations from the other side. Others of you may have found a focus of life in athletic competition. You can be creative and interview family members on why your family practices or does not practice a belief system. The key to this exercise is that you not plagiarize any work and that you accomplish ½ of the writing needed for this course. I have went to a catholic school my whole life
and have went of a spiritual retreat my Junior year of highschool.
Question 4958 Response to a Friend
God’s faithfulness is a constant theme throughout the Bible. It is in his faithfulness that we ground our hope. Yet suffering is a present reality for us. How do we explain God’s goodness and faithfulness in view of the pain and hurt that we experience in this life? Consider the following scenario: Imagine that
you have an opportunity to address this issue with someone who is going through a serious season of suffering. Perhaps they themselves are suffering with a critical illness, permanent disability, financial loss, injustice, or a broken relationship. Or perhaps they are suffering along with a loved one who is
going through a particularly difficult time. Knowing that you are a believer, they ask you about the goodness of God. Does God really care? Is he really good and faithful? How can it be that an all- powerful, loving, compassionate, and gracious God could allow such suffering when it is in his power to stop it? And doesn’t this God also cause suffering and death at times? How can we trust such a God? Is
there any reason to have hope?

Question 4960 Science and Religion
There has been an ongoing dispute between science and religion, however, lately, the two havevattempted to work together to solve world issues. Which side are you on, or do you agree with this union? Please include at least 3 supporting arguments.
Question 4961 Cultural christianity
From the time of the Roman Empire, Christianity has identified in some fashion with culture. But that can pose a danger. De Gruchy, 63, for example, talks about this as a form of “cultural Christianity,” in which Christianity can be “reduced to middle-class morality…incapable of responding to the eschatological apocalypse unfolding (62).” This, in turn, has the potential of creating a “kairos moment”
(see xxiii and 41). Do we live in such a time and is there a potential that the use of religion can become dangerous? Use The Atlantic article, “How Religion Made a Global Comeback in 2017” as a basis for your response.
Question 4962 Interesting Women
4 page paper about only you will research women in Judaism, Christianity, and/or Islam. Under “Interesting Women” for each, there are many ideas for a topic. One of the most popular paper topics for Paper #2 is Mary Magdalene and her role in either the life of Jesus, both from the New Testament viewpoint or the Gnostic viewpoint; Mary the mother of Jesus; the women at the foot of Jesus’ cross, they are not the same with each of the Gospel writers; Lydia, the first convert to Christianity by the Apostle Paul; Dorcas, the woman who labored for the children and women of her village; Mother Theresa; Theresa of Avila; Joan of Arc.
Question 4963 World View Chart
A world view is a fundamental or basic orientation of thinking – like a mindset – which guides a culture and / or a person’s life. Like a point of view, it can be built of concepts, ideas, values, emotions, and ethics. Weltanschauung is the German word for this idea. Your goal for this course is to understand the world views of these various religions. In order to prepare you for your final assignment, you will outline the world views of various religions in the chart below, adding to it each week. For this assignment, students will complete the weekly area of the chart, filling in the aspects of each religion as it is presented in the readings and resources. This chart, when complete, will be the starting point for the
written assignment, due in Week 10. For each weekly submission: Review the weekly lectures and supplemental materials provided, then complete the chart by elaborating on each section related to the weekly content. Identify key details and examples from the weekly resources to serve as a basis for the
content being recorded in your chart. Write clearly and coherently using correct grammar, punctuation, spelling, and mechanics. The specific course learning outcomes ass.

Question 4965 religion discusion
In the previous 2 weeks you’ve read about seemingly parallel visions of Joseph Smith and Handsome Lake creating 2 different world views and the internal Christian battle over interpreting Christ for 2 warring sides. What role does human interpretation of religious visions, texts, and situations play in the
eventual actions of the interpreters/followers? How did history play out these interpretations? If you’d like to tie today’s schism in (mis)understanding between Americans in “the South” versus “the North,” you may use a couple of sentences to speculate on the continuity of the past in the readings and the conflict within the “Christian community” today in your last paragraph. Most of your submission should be your point about the readings and NOT a long diatribe of opinion about current affairs. Your observation should tie directly to the reading.

Question 4967 Acts Flow Chart
Instructions: Complete this assignment as you read the book of Acts during this term, and submit it in Module 8. For each chapter of Acts, provide a title followed by one significant verse from that chapter that supports the title, and then list the three most significant events or elements in each chapter. Be sure that the title for each chapter captures the primary events of the chapter. Be clear and specific. The title will be created by putting each chapter’s content into a single sentence and then narrowing it to a title, such as “Stephen’s Message before the Sanhedrin Leads to His Martyrdom” for chapter 7 or “The Jerusalem Council Concludes that Salvation is Apart from Circumcision and Moses’ Law” for chapter 15. Following the title, write out one significant verse from that chapter that supports the title. It’s not enough to give a verse reference; write out the entire verse, then give the reference in parentheses following the verse. Finally, list three most significant events or elements in each chapter. Avoid the temptation to copy the titles that you may find in your copy of the Bible. Copying will be of no value to you in knowing more of the book of Acts, and will become evident to the teacher as these titles are usually consistent throughout Bible versions. These titles will only come to you if you read the Scriptures for comprehension. Template: Arabic numeral: chapter title Verse: significant verse Minuscule letters: most significant events/elements.

Question 4970 BIOGRAPHY INSTRUCTIONS
Option 1: Ian Johnston (it is his translation of The Bacchae used in this lesson) offers a short interpretive summary of the play. Read this summary, here: An Introductory Note to Euripides Bacchae. Johnston suggests two alternative interpretations: “A more sophisticated (and certainly more interesting) version
of … the play looks at Dionysus, not simply as a foreign god, but as the embodiment of certain aspects of human experience, as a symbol for the irrational, communal excitement, bonding, power, joy, intoxication, and excess which all too often get lost in the careful life of the city, governed by habit,
rules, laws, and responsibilities. This approach to the play stresses the fact that Thebes has lost touch with those irrational energizing unconscious powers of life and, in Agave’s and Pentheus’ refusal to acknowledge the divinity of Dionysus, created a situation where these powers (which cannot be forever
denied) simply break out with disastrous consequences. If that doesn’t carry an explicit moral, at least it serves as a cautionary tale.” [on the other hand] ” … it is not difficult to see why some interpreters have viewed this play as an indictment of religion because of its hostility to the survival of the community, on
the ground that religion (as depicted by Dionysus and his followers) is the basis for the irrational destructiveness which threatens and ultimately overthrows the well-ordered city in an orgy of cruel excess. On this view, the play is a cautionary tale about the dangers of religious superstitions.” Question: With which of these interpretations do you tend to agree? Why? Need we choose between the two?Develop your answer in a crafted reply of around 500 words, and post to your group discussion page for this lesson. Be sure to draw on evidence in the text in developing your answer. http://records.viu.ca/~johnstoi/euripides/Bacchae_Introduction.htm
