These just added drama to the story and didn’t show the power of God to its fullest extent. The movie itself was a great movie. It followed the storyline of Exodus and it felt like it stayed true to the book. After a closer look at Exodus, you see that there was some added plot lines to the movie and some detail is inadequate. The stories of Datham and Nefreteri do take away some meaning.
14-30) and his power and superiority. The word Exodus means “departure” or “outgoing” and God continually provides a way of escape for his people throughout the Exodus ( Ex. 12 & 14) and throughout the entire bible into the New Testament (1 Cor. 10:1-13) In Exodus chapter 3, Moses is instructed by God to bring his people out of Egypt and be a key figure in God’s redemptive plan. This would require Moses to approach Pharaoh and demand the release of his people (Ex.6:10-11).
Instead of doing what was just, Moses did what was necessary, “for war is just to whom it is necessary, and arms are pious when there is no hope but in arms”(p. 103). One may contend that Moses could not veritably contribute to this teaching because he was divinely inspired. However, at the end of his writing, Machiavelli asserts, “God does not want to do everything”(p. 103). Machiavelli’s admiration of Moses, use of arms, and treatment of the conquered land inspired his core
Moses acts as God’s voice for a long period of time, from the very first time Moses tells Pharaoh to free the Israelites (Exodus 5:1), to when Moses delivers the Ten Commandments to the people (Exodus 20), all throughout the entire books of Leviticus, Numbers, and Deuteronomy, until Moses dies at the conclusion of Deuteronomy. It is obvious that God chose Moses for a specific purpose. More importantly, though, it is what God does through Moses to change His people, the Israelites. The reader can see that God desires several things for his people. The most obvious thing God attempts to teach the Israelites is faithfulness.
Beyond the Bible, written by Howard Marshall, is a compilation of essays that seek to propose a biblically sound way to move from biblical text to doctrine and application. Marshall believes that if one is going to move “beyond the bible,” they must do so “biblically.” A concern for Marshall is also how to properly apply scripture to controversial matters in the church today. The book includes more than just Marshall’s work, but essays written by Kevin Vanhoozer and Stanley Porter as well, which backs the idea that hermeneutics should be a discussion, not a solo speech. In Marshall’s first essay, ‘Evangelicals and Hermeneutics,’ he summarizes the state of evangelical theology in relation to hermeneutics. Marshall describes how over the past thirty years, evangelical scholars have come to appreciate hermeneutics more than ever before.

Although some shows had some bad attitudes toward black characters in the past, the fans think this old custom should be changed. About the AMC’s high rated drama The Walking Dead, there could be other examples and counterexamples, but my larger point of fan comments are that audiences prefer The Walking Dead because of the storyline and the way characters act. But it’s hard to be successful when you narrowly focus a sprawling cast on the concerns of a few characters in the drama. The production company has to show multiple perspectives and treat every character with equality.
In spite of Maher defending his position, there was a particular argument that I did not agree upon. For instance, Maher quotes in the end of the film “Religion is dangerous because it allows human beings who don’t have all the answers to think that they do”.

The original was renowned for its superior script writing, so it would be assumed that it would be obvious to take notes from the movie, yet it seems that the reboot had failed to do so to formulate a new identity. In its attempt to validate the new script, it failed to distribute the same emotions and vibe of a character trying to discover who he was. This had been quickly noticed by fans or the originals and its sequels and drew much ire for seeming to have an oppositely polarized wording when compared to the
While Luhrmann’s movie adaptation just jumps out to the viewers with 3 dimensional effects. It was a valiant effort by Baz Luhrmann, but the use of 3-D effect in this movie was unnecessary, the extravagant party scenes came out repetitive and shallow. The peculiar and atypical rhetorical choices in this movie adaptation were essentially used just because Luhrmann is drawn to the idea of “modernizing” the novel, to interpret ideas and theme to younger audiences in an applicable settings, while also incorporating passage from an older era. Luhrmann had failed to appeal
With the making of many films and attempts to recreate this hour of darkness, it is important to understand and keep in mind the viewers want. A film that is informative, clear, yet considerate of the era. Schindler’s List was not successful in being a clear representation of the Holocaust as it fell into the typical Hollywood fashion. As a viewer, it is difficult to fall into the emotional side and really connect as the color and lighting were not well sought out and the lack of strong Jewish characters to connect with. Although Spielberg failed as a director, the Holocaust will always touch the hearts of many.
