Isaiah and the Prophetess - Introduction The common theme throughout the book of Isaiah is that the Lord is almighty. He is in control and He is worthy of trust. In chapters 7 and 8 of Isaiah we see one of the most misunderstood and well-known stories in the book. The setting of this story takes place during the split of Israel into the two kingdoms of Israel and Judah.

Historical Context of Isaiah 53 - Isaiah 1:1 states, “The vision of Isaiah the son of Amoz Judah and Jerusalem, which he saw during the reigns of Uzziah, Jotham, Ahaz and Hezekiah, kings of Judah” This verse is an indication that Isaiah’s ministry began with the reign of Uzziah, King of Judah and culminated with the reign of King Hezekiah. Hence, as Isaiah was prophesying to Judah, the southern kingdom during the reign of these four kings, Hosea and Amos were prophesying to Israel, the northern kingdom. Geographically, the area where these three prophets were prophesying was the northern kingdom (Israel with its capital city being Samaria) and the southern kingdom (Judah)....   [tags: Scripture Analysis ]

The nation of Judah stood in a precarious position: the wickedness of the people, the civil war which divided the Israelites into two kingdoms of Judah and Israel, the neighboring countries which stood by, threatening war and the dilemma that faced the leaders about whether or not they should take on allies all indicated the downfall of the nation of Judah if the people did not heed his words and change their ways....   [tags: Bible Religion] 1685 words

Isaiah Berlin’s Two Concepts of Liberty - Isaiah Berlin’s Two Concepts of Liberty In his article "Two Concepts of Liberty", Isaiah Berlin identifies and contrasts the two components of freedom: negative and positive liberty. While the author’s voice is often confused amidst the frequent references to other political philosophies from Platonic to Millian theories, Berlin successfully argues that both of these notions can be misconstrued to the point where liberty itself is sacrificed. Although reasonable, Berlin’s assessment of the two concepts seems artificial and effortlessly simple, as if freedom could be defined according to a rubric; one can, however, agree with his statement that absolute freedom for one individual undoubtedl...   [tags: Politics Political Essays] 800 words

Salvation in the Old Testament - From the definition of apocalyptic literate, which states that such literature is “a revelatory form which pertains to the end of reality and describes a new divine world with salvation for the few,” it might be easy to assume that apocalyptic texts can be pretty homogenous.

Nevertheless, there is an astounding amount of room for variation within apocalyptic texts....   [tags: Bible, Prophets, Salvation]

Personal Narrative: My Day - The light from the sun reflects off the pure white wall, illuminating the room. The dust floats, undisturbed by the empty house. This is what I see as I launch myself out the door, into the hot summer air, into the sounds of playing children. I was four, I was carefree, I was full of life. Outside, we were free to do anything. My cousins, sister, and I could do whatever we wanted. The thoughts slipped through my mind, quick as a flowing river, and I did not have a care to catch it. All I was thinking about was a way to satisfy my immense and never ending curiosity....   [tags: essay about myself, Personal Experience] 1762 words

Manliness and Old Spice - Can a body wash make you more of a man. Old Spice certainly has the answer and they’re not afraid to imply that either. Old Spice published the soon-to-be-viral ad “Questions” mid 2010 to their official YouTube channel teasing that very question. The ad mockingly stereotypes aspects of manliness while asking male and female viewers alike to assess the manliness of their man or themselves. While "Questions” does little to describe the product it advertises, it proves its merit as an effective advertisement because it strikes all three chords of persuasion; It tickles our love of humor while establishing a mental relationship between the product and manliness by using a perfect manly specime...   [tags: Advertisement, Commercial]

The Old Testament - Christian theologians have taken part in biblical scholarship for centuries on the qualities of the Old Testament that have changed western civilization forever.

A Relationship Between the New Testament and Physical Therapy - The New Testament is primarily about Jesus’ ministries and teachings.
