Next, Jesus healed the centurion’s servant after seeing his great faith. Jesus continues to heal and also drives out evil spirits. Jesus made it clear to his followers that his way will not be easy. The passage prior to the demoniac is one of Jesus calming the storm on the Sea of Galilee. For each Gospel, this story is immediately before the story of the Garasene demoniac.
This fulfilled the Old Testament prophesy. The book of Matthew also consists of Jesus’s trial and crucifixion which led to Jesus becoming or Savior from sin. The main Characters in this book are: Jesus, Mary, Joseph, Jon the Baptist, the twelve disciples, and Mary Magdalene. Acts The genre of this book is narrative. The book of Acts begins with Jesus urging His disciples to spread the Gospel worldwide.
Lewis’s claims, The Chronicles of Narnia qualifies as an allegory due to the way the characters and events in the book series are portrayed similar to those in biblical text. The presence of the Christian allegory becomes more and more apparent as The Chronicles of Narnia series goes on. In the first book of the series, The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe, concepts of Christianity quickly became evident with the introduction of Aslan, who is the creator and one
(Lewis, 155). The White Witch asks Aslan if he remembers that the Deep Magic engraved on the Great Stone Table by the Emperor-beyond-the-Sea, Aslan's father, says that "every traitor belongs to me (Jadis) as my lawful prey and for every treachery I have a right to a kill (Lewis, 155). Aslan asks the Witch to take a walk with him and they go off to have a private conversation. This is where the next Christian symbol comes in. Aslan sacrifices himself on the Stone Table to save Edmund from his treachery.
The key is that the New Testament writers believed that Jesus was the Messiah, and so these predictions of the Hebrew Bible, according to the New Testament writers, correspond to Jesus’ life. Typology is the relationship between an event in the Hebrew Bible and another event in the Christian New Testament. The New Testament writer of John, for instance, believed the near-sacrifice of Isaac in Genesis was to foreshadow the sacrifice of Jesus on the cross. WORKS CITED NIV Study Bible. 3rd ed.
(602). Slowly and with much effort Adam raises his right hand, displaying his act of blessing on Caleb. Like all strong allegories, East of Eden draws one into a world of fictious characters that seem to take on a life of familiarity. The bible, which Steinbeck has chosen to build his novel on, is a book that interests itself not in causes, but in actions and their consequences. By creating biblical allegories, Steinbeck gives a new meaning to an old chapter.
In The Triumph of The Witch chapter, Aslan essentially sacrifices himself to save Edmund from the Witch. The parallelism between Aslan’s sacrifice and the crucifixion of Jesus is undeniable. The resurrection of both Aslan and Jesus are similar as well, for one Susan and Lucy are the ones who see Aslan first. In The Bible after Jesus is resurrected Mary and Mary Magdalene are the first to see him. During the time leading up to Aslan’s sacrifice The Witch and her followers harass, degrade and mock Aslan: Aslan being mocked is the same as when Jesus...
After they died, they were both resurrected. Fawkes, the Phoenix is a symbol of the Holy Spirit, and Harry and Jesus both knew sacrifice and selflessness. Also, both men have taken so much pain and suffering for the people they loved. Every character in the Harry Potter Series seems to resemble a person from the bible. Harry Potter died for the wizarding world much like Jesus Christ died willingly for our sins.
Theological Meanings and Imagery in Man of Steel Man of Steel offers many theological meanings and imagery to the life of Jesus Christ and the Bible. The character of Superman depicts a Christ like figure, but there are other things in the movie that have a theological perspective and shows aspects of Christ’s life here on this earth and His entire backstory. Superman will always contain the messiah myths told by Christians. Many good stories are written with the use of myths and cultures and religions. Some writers do this to give an idea for viewers to ponder on, while other writers use it for emotional attachment.
Jesus on the other hand was born without sin, only to be condemned by and subsequently killed by the establishment. Another paradox is in that the Puritans prided themselves on being good Christians and condemned those who they found unholy. Ironically it is they who are the bad people and the people they have condemned whom are the best Christian, (barring Hester and that whole adultery thing.) Nathaniel Hawthorne’s use of rhetorical devices allows for a vivid connection to be drawn between his novel and the Bible. The use of symbolism, paradox, allusions, and characterization create a story that has in it the underlying of Bible stories.
