Exegesis Paper: Matthew 26:36-46

- Introduction One of the greatest debates that continues to rage on amongst theologians, as well as others, is in regards to the balance between the humanity and the divinity of the person of Jesus Christ (also known as Christology). This debate can be especially challenging in the Scripture passage of Matthew 26:36-46 where the reader finds Jesus praying in the Garden of Gethsemane. Many of the ancient and medieval theologians worked to explain away apparent humanistic characteristics seen in this section of the text, while more modern theologians seem to be more open to embracing these characteristics....   [tags: Theology, Jesus, Gethsemane]

Who wrote the Gospel of Matthew?

- Who wrote the Gospel of Matthew. The Gospel of Matthew is anonymous: there is no internal, direct evidence for authorship. Sometime early in the second-century the Gospel of Matthew was designated as such. (This at least offers prima facie evidence that the apostle Matthew wrote this work.) As far as internal, indirect evidence is concerned, three data should be noted. It suggests that he was a Jew, because a gentile would tend not to be interested in such teaching tradition. It suggests that the author was a Jew, since a Jew would be concerned to understand Jesus as such....   [tags: Bible Religion Christianity]

The Gospell of Matthew Provides a Smooth Transition into the New Testament

- While the Gospel of Matthew wasn’t the first one to be written, it is placed first in the New Testament. This is because the Gospel of Matthew is written in a way that relates well to the Jewish crowd, providing a smooth shift from the Old Testament to the New Testament. The Gospel of Matthew talks about the many miracles of Jesus, His death by crucifixion, and resurrection. Using Jesus’s birth and lineage, the many miracles He performed, and His modesty as a leader as examples relating back to the prophecy the savior, Matthew depicts Jesus as the Messiah, the true savior of the people of Israel....   [tags: prophecy, salvation, messiah]

Mark places the feeding of the 4000 in “the midst of the borders of Decapolis” (Mark7:31). Commentators have hypothesised over the significance of the location suggesting that Jesus went into the predominantly Gentile area of Decapolis to extend His ministry among the Gentiles.

The varied types of soil are the emphasis in this parable, rather than that of "the sowing of the seed ("word," v.19) of the kingdom." "Jesus called it 'the parable of the sower' because it was a sower who inspired the lesson." (Hobbs, 164) The sower is a Christian teacher or Christ, "but not a prominent figure in the parable."

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]

Dover Beach, by Matthew Arnold and Dulce Et Decorum Est, by Wilfred Owen

- Matthew Arnold’s “Dover Beach” invites the reader to determine if they, like the speaker, would isolate themselves to preserve their present ideologies; while Wilfred Owen’s poem “Dulce Et Decorum Est” implores the reader to evaluate what they consider to be worthy of glorification. While the two poems are distinctly different in both time period and setting, Arnold’s poem is better interpreted by the extension of the imagery presented in his last stanza by the war setting in Owen’s “Dulce”. The imagery used in “Dulce Et Decorum Est” expands the reader’s understanding of “Dover Beach” by further illustrating the powerlessness of the position one is placed in, and that there is no difference...   [tags: Themes, Isolation]

Comparison of Poems Dover Beach and The Buried Life and by Matthew Arnold

- Matthew Arnold uses diction and imagery to produce the themes of alienation and self discovery in the poems: "Dover Beach" and "The Buried Life." “Dover Beach” talks about a man's attitude toward life. Arnold uses diction to show his feelings and inner most thoughts. In “Dover Beach” he claims “the sea is calm tonight, the tide is full, the moon lies fair upon the straits.” These lines show a sense of clarification until he claims he has lost his faith by saying “and we are here as on a darkling plain swept with confused alarms of struggle and flight.” These lines present the idea of him not knowing why he is on this earth....   [tags: imagery, self-discovery, alienation]

The realization of self, before God, is the very call to respond to the need of the other.

Therefore, Matthew was likely excommunicated for his occupation and hated by the Jews (Bible, 684). Because Matthew was born a Jew, he was raised learning about the Old Testament.
