...Bible Dictionary Project Template Name: Randy Westover Student ID: L26485458 Course: Bible 104 Date: 10/13/2014 Old Testament Bible Dictionary Project: Romans: Romans is a letter from Paul to the church of Rome. Paul had not ever been tovisit this church but had met some of the members in his travels. I tells of his plan to visit the church. He wrote this letter durning his third missionary trip in 57 A.D. In this letter he explains that God’s sa,vation plan is for everyone, Jews and Gentiles. Belief and acceptance in Jesus and his sacrifice is the only requirement for salvation. All now have the same access to Jesus, the messiah. Paul filled the letter with directives to handle many things like daily living for Christ. He covered righteousness in Jesus, justification, sanctification, spiritual growth and God’s sovernghty over all people, not just the Jews. He writes to explain that Jesus Christ is the savior and redeemer whose death on the cross made it possible for all of that. In the very beginning of the book Paul identifies himself as a servant or slave to Jesus and that Jesus Called him to be his apostle and set him apart for this purpose. (Romans 1:1) He later explains in The second chapter Paul explains how all, Jews and Gentiles are under the chains of sin and only Jesus can set us free through our faith in his ability to set us free. In chapter six he explains that because of Christ’s freedom from sin that we now must become slaves to......

Bible 104 Worldview Essay

...gave my life to Christ and continued believing the truths of God that I was taught as a child. As a Christian, I believe that the Bible is the word of God, and it stands as the lenses of how the world is viewed in a Christina/Biblical view. In Romans chapters 1-8, the apostle Paul writes about the views a Christian should have and how they should live. In the next paragraphs of this essay, it will be briefly discussed how the Bible guides us through tough life questions such as: Who we are? Where do we come from? What is the meaning/purpose of life, Relationships, and our Destiny? The Natural World A Christian’s Biblical world view of this world is seen in Psalm 139.16, the Psalmist describes how God personally created him in the womb of his mother. We are humbled at the fact that Good took the time to create us in His image. Since the creation of the world humans have been given the revelation of the truth (Romans 1:18) Gen1:1 shows God as the creator of all things. God in his all-knowing power formed the Natural world in detail to perfection. Human Identity Mankind was created in the image of God. Adam and Eve were tasked to be caretakers of the land of Eden (Gen 2:15). They were above the animals. Therefore the misconception some people may have concerning animals and how they identify them with humans is nullified through the Bible. The Apostle Paul, introduces himself as a servant of Christ (Rom 1:1). We too, as Christians, are to obligate ourselves to......

Bib 104 Old Testament Bible Dictionary Project

...BIBL 104 February 15, 2015 Old Testament Bible Dictionary Project Genesis The book of Genesis is one of the better-known books of the Bible. Not only is it the first book of the Bible it is also the first documentation of our existence. The book was originally written in Hebrew with the title of bereshit, which means “in the beginning.” (Bible.org) While the author of Genesis is never actually named, it is believed that Moses wrote the book of Genesis. In Acts 7:22 Luke recaps that Moses was trained in the “wisdom of the Egyptians” and was the only one who was prepared to integrate and understand the manuscripts and oral narratives in the Pentateuch. Only Moses was qualified enough to be given the task of writing Israel’s history. Genesis starts with our creation and spans “approximately 2400 years.” (bible.org) The book starts with God creating the heavens and the earth and ends with the Israelites arriving in Egypt and growing into a nation. This can be dated back to around 1800 B.C. The purpose and theme of the book is to reveal how the sin of man is met by the intervention and redemption of God and God’s choice of a nation through whom he would bless the nations. This is conveyed through several key people and events. The four greatest events in Genesis include the creation of the world and man, the fall of man when Adam and Eve ate of the forbidden fruit, Noah’s ark and the Great Flood, and the confusion of tongues. There are several main personalities in...

Bible 104 Db 1

...When people approach the Bible without any concern for the historical-cultural context, their interpretation of what is written can be seriously misunderstood and lead them to form opinions and ideas other than what was originally intended. There is the danger of interpreting passages far too literally and missing the meaning that it holds for us today. Slavery is an excellent example of this. There are numerous references to slavery being acceptable in the bible. This was, unfortunately, a way of life then. However, that doesn’t mean that we should employ slavery, in any form, today, just because it was acceptable back then. In the Song of Solomon 4:1-4, Solomon proceeds to compliment his love with the following words: 1Your hair is like a flock of goats descending from Mount Gilead. 2 Your teeth are like a flock of sheep just shorn, coming up from the washing. Each has its twin; not one of them is alone. He was, stating that her hair was as beautiful as that of the long, flowing black hair of the goats as the sun shines off of their coats. At a time when dental hygiene wasn’t really a concern, this was quite a compliment, as he was commenting on how white and straight her teeth were. If someone were to comment on the state of our teeth today or refer to your hair as being that of a goat’s, it would be considered quite rude! From a modern aspect, his “compliments” don’t seem to get much better: 3 Your lips are like a scarlet ribbon; your mouth is lovely. Your......

...Jenna Erickson BIBL 104-D13 04/17/2015 Old Testament Bible Dictionary Project: Exodus/Moses/Sinai Exodus: Exodus is the second book of five in the Pentateuch or Torah of the Old Testament. It is also the second book in the Hebrew Bible, and is known as V’elleh Shemoth, while in the Greek Bible it is known as Exodus, meaning “departure” or “outgoing”. Moses is believed to be the author of Exodus, and it was most likely written during the forty years of wandering in the wilderness, between 1451 and 1491 BC. Then the Lord said to Moses, “Write this as a memorial in a book and recite it in the ears of Joshua, that I will utterly blot out the memory of Amalek from under heaven” (Exodus 17:14). The main themes of Exodus is God’s covenant with the Hebrew nation, and Moses leading the departure of the Israelites out of Egypt. “And God heard their groaning, and God remembered his covenant with Abraham, with Isaac, and with Jacob. God saw the people of Israel—and God knew” (Exodus 2:24-25). A brief summary of Exodus would include the beginning chapters about; the enslaved Israelites, the birth, education and first leaving of Moses, the 10 plagues set about by God, the first Passover, the Israelites departure (Exodus) from Egypt along with the parting of the Red Sea, and the destruction of the Egypt Army. The middle of the book includes; the journey to Mt. Sinai from the Red Sea, the making of the covenant at Sinai and the writing of the Ten Commandments. And the Lord said to......

Bible 104 Worldview Essay

...Anonymous (Nathan or Gad?) | Date: | Circa 960 BC | Recipients: | United Kingdom of Israel | Key Word: | Anointed (Hb. mashiach) | Key Verse: | “So Samuel took the horn of oil, anointed him . . . and the Spirit of the Lord took control of David from that day forward. Then Samuel set out and went to Ramah” (1 Sam 16:13). | The name Samuel means “the name of God,” “his name is God,” or “asked of God.” The Masoretes originally considered both 1 and 2 Samuel as one book. The Greek Septuagint calls 1–2 Samuel and 1–2 Kings “First, Second, Third, and Fourth Kingdoms.” The content of each of the books is generally the same as 1–2 Samuel and 1–2 Kings. Each of these books was included in the section of the “Former Prophets” in the Hebrew Bible because it was believed that they were written by prophets, whereas 1–2 Chronicles was placed in the “writings” ( kethuvim) because they were written by priests. The books of 1–2 Samuel are anonymous but named in honor of Samuel who authored other works (1 Sam 10:25; 1 Chr 29:29) and was the head of a group of prophets (1 Sam 10:5; 19:20). However, Samuel could not be the author of all of the books’ contents since they record his death (1 Sam 25:1) and events after his death (2 Sam 1–24). Baba Bathra 15a asserts that the prophets Nathan and Gad wrote the rest of the material (cf. 1 Chr 29:29). These books were probably written circa 960 BC after the death of David in 971 BC and during the reign of Solomon (cf. 2 Chr 9:29). 1......
