The first five books of the bible best known as the Old Testament best describe the story of Israel from the creation of the world to the death of Moses. The Old Testament describes a special relationship between God and his chosen people and there is a strong emphasis on laws required to be followed and obeyed by all the child of God. Also the Old Testament talks about the Babylonian Exile which is the disaster that God created to destroy every creation on the earth caused by the loss of faith of their people. In this first five books we can appreciate the scriptures of the Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers and Deuteronomy.
In Exodus we have very detailed explanation of the leadership of King Moses. Moses was a very powerful leader of the Hebrews who was born in Egypt but later on he led the Hebrew people out of Egypt. Moses was born in a very difficult time were the Paraoah of Egypt ordered that all boy babies should be drowned at birth.

Moses is my favorite character from the Bible because he was used many times by God and is a great guide and witness of God to all of us. In Exodus we are teached how powerful is God and how important is to follow every law of God. This story gives us a understanding on how important is to always worship God and never take credit away from him, for everything we do we do it in the name of God. While Moses was faithful to God 99 percent of his life only one sin was enough to prohibit him the entrance to the promise land. We should make sure to understand that God chooses the weakest people to perform miracles trough them. Moses story provides us with sufficient faith and courage to follow Gods law everyday and to understand that if we sin we should always regred and ask God for forgiveness.

- ... Jehovah Witness is another non-traditional Protestant denomination and has a little more than eight million followers. Its origins start with Charles Taze Russell, an Adventist, who was influenced by the many Christian sects around him. He decided to study the Holy Bible with his colleagues in order to differentiate the truths of Christianity and what resulted was a literal interpretation of the Holy Bible, which is at the core of Jehovah’s Witness belief. As stated the Jehovah’s Witnesses take the word of the Holy Bible literally, therefore they differ from other Christian sects in many ways....

- My call in regard to the proclamation of the Gospel of Jesus Christ is to share my faith by living out my love of Christ and showing the love of Jesus Christ to the world around me. The Bible says in Matthew 28:16-20, “Now the eleven disciples went to Galilee, to the mountain to which Jesus had directed them. And when they saw him they worshiped him, but some doubted. And Jesus came and said to them, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you....

They said: "How can we talk to one who is a child in the cradle. He said: "I am indeed a servant of God: He hath given me revelation and made me a prophet"“ (19:29-30, Yusif Ali).

- Have you thought about the current religious and social scene in America; especially during this time of year of Christmas. Religion has once again been forced to the forefront of the news, with groups fighting over whether to have a “Nativity Scene” in the public square, others are debating about using the word “Christmas” in their sales ads, and then we hear schools are not going on “Christmas break” but winter break. In our changing society, I wonder if anyone of us has stopped to ask what did God intend by sending His Son, Jesus Christ to this earth.... [tags: religion, christmas, jesus christ]

- Christ of the Holy Bible and Dionysus of Euripides Christ resembles Dionysus in many ways. Is it possible that Christ is simply an extension of the Dionysian myth. Though the concepts of wine and faith unite the two, the idea of revenge compared to self-sacrifice separates the two deities. Dionysus fits the Greek understanding of vengeful and selfish God that bear more anthropomorphic traits than Godly traits. Christ, however, transcends human desires for revenge and acts in self-sacrifice.... [tags: Comparison compare contrast essays]

- Suffering and The Book of Job Life is difficult. "Suffering...is not an exception to the human condition, it is the human condition" (Gomes 405). The question of why life can be unjustly cruel is asked today and has been asked since the beginning of time. And where is God in the midst of hardship. Is He non-existent, as the pagan statement, "It's Chance alone that moves and rules our lives" implies (Neiman 442). Or is God only partially in control of situations, as Harold Kushner concludes, writing, "there are some things God does not control" (462).... [tags: Holy Bible Book Job Essays]
