Analysis Of Matt Groening 's ' The Simpsons '

- Matt Groening is very smart, hard working and argumentatively one of the best comedic animation masterminds of all time. As you may know, he has created the longest running US animated T.V. series ‘The Simpsons’. They first aired on the ‘Tracy Ullman Show’on April 19, 1989. I think Groening has done a lot for the world of adult animation comedy or even animation all together.

The Unexpected: Detective Matt Cole

- ... “The victim lay on the floor, dead. He slit her throat and her clothes were stained with blood. A knife was left beside the victim.” Matt said as he skimmed through the file again. Whilst raising his brow, a faint hint of amusement played from his lips; this case was nothing new. Blood, murder, death.

Differences In Jesus’ Message From Judaism in The Gospel of Matthew

- By the time of Jesus’ life in Palestine, participation in the Pan-Hellenic world was redefining what it meant to be Jewish. Hellenistic Jews adapted to the new culture, while the Pharisees fought this assimilation by choosing a strict interpretation of Jewish law (Smarr 1/18). Into this picture steps Jesus. It is my interpretation that the Jesus depicted by the Gospel of Matthew does not intend to be a radical revolutionary seeking to establish an entirely new faith, but a reformer attempting to revive the moral and spiritual strength of Judaism, yet Jesus’ message of love and mercy as a formula for human relationship departs radically from the traditional Jewish emphasis on law and justice...   [tags: The Bible]
