He told Jeremiah to prove the people of Jerusalem wrong for thinking God would not bring damage to the temple or to those who lived nearby it. Jeremiah obeyed him and rebuked them for their idolatry, and their outrageous manners. Jeremiah said Jerusalem is ripe for judgment and exile. He was almost killed for this lecture, but the officials of Judah saved him. Idolatry will bring destruction.
The First Crusade took place in 1096-1099 in the Middle East and it was a very dark place for the Jewish people living in this duration of time in history. A Crusade is a holy war or an enthusiastic movement for change socially, politically, or religiously. In the book The Chronicles of the First Crusade edited by Christopher Tyerman, it depicts the anger of Christians towards Jewish people after the crucifixion of Christ. The Jews were put to blame for Jesus’s death and the Crusaders decided that under God they needed to prosecute the Jews for not believing in Christ. Another reason behind The First Crusade is that Peter the Hermit with the help of Pope Urban II declared the goal of Christians having access to the holy lands, otherwise known as Jerusalem, which at that time was a place of ungodly practices.
Paul lays himself out for poor Onesimus, and with all his means pleads his cause with his master: and so sets himself as if he were Onesimus, and had himself done wrong to Philemon. Even as Christ did for us with God the Father, thus also St. Paul does for Onesimus with Philemon… We are all His Onesimi, to my thinking(The Book of Philemon. (n.d.).” The book of Philemon is metaphor of what Jesus did, so sinner would be set free from the bondages of sin. God having the power to forgive sin. Jesus the mediator also the one who pays for the sin.
In chapter two of the book Jeremiah is talking about the how mad the lord is at his people, and how he brought judgement to the wicked land. God is showing in chapter two how mad he is and he cut off the power of Israel, but in chapter three he Jeremiah tells us that he is faithful to us and he will restore the land. Even though he to is very sad from his city being taken and destroyed he remembers what the lord has told him. He then explains that the people of the kingdom of judah and the kingdom of Jerusalem need to fall back to the lord and get rid of those false gods.

He describes how Hosea's wife has been unfaithful to her husband as the nation Israel has been unfaithful to God. He further goes on to describe his plans for the nation Israel and how he is going to let Israel search for Him, through other God's, and the obstacles he'll place in their path to hinder their search. God also declares he will punish the Israelites for forgetting about their one true God.

This parable is compared to pouring salt on a wound. Jesus provides a more accurate picture of what he means, just in case the people didn’t completely comprehend. This parable continues to irritate the priests and bestows the others who were available to hear Jesus fully explain the consequences of the disobedience of the Jewish people during the centuries. At the period the vineyard was biblical Judaism that God planted through his word and rented out to the Jewish sacred leaders to maintain it. The prophets were really the servants God sent who the leaders of Israel killed and disgraced.
The people in the crowd mocked Jesus for being the king of the Jews, "31. So also the chief priests mocked him to one another with the scribes, saying, "He saved others; he cannot save himself. 32 Let the Christ, the King of Israel, come down now from the cross, that we may see and believe." In the last few hours of being on

By attacking the Christian faith in this way, the king of Assyria was trying to prove the Christian’s God was just like all other gods, powerless. Similarly, Paul persecuted Christians by going to Damascus to capture them and bring them back to Jerusalem. He hated the Christian faith and persecuted it without mercy. He, however, converted to Christianity later and became an awesome tool of God’s for spreading the Gospel.
Otherwise, in times of happiness and rejoicing, they worship their one, almighty, Christian God. When Grendel is attacking Herot, and its people think they are in their greatest danger, the people of Herot "sacrificed to the old stone gods / Made heathen vows / hoping for Hell's Support, the Devil's guidance in driving their affliction off." (175-178). With the use of the word "old" in this section, it can be inferred that the stone gods are things of the past. The rest of the passage shows that it was because of the doubt and fear, instilled in the people by Grendel, that the people of Herot regressed back to their old gods.
The Bible was used to condemn all other religions in Europe, especially Paganism. The present image of the devil was derived from Paganism. The Christians told the Pagans that they should fear their horned god because he was a beast, and instead convert to Christianity where the All Mighty was good and peaceful. How ironic, that in today’s society we are told to fear the Christian god, because his vengeance is great, like they told the Pagans to leave their God because he caused them fear. Yet today we tell our Christian children to fear God because he punishes the sinners.
