1 A Comparison Term Paper

… The demand to Utnapishtim to save "all livings things" is comparable with the account in Genesis (chapter 7, verses 2-3) when Noah is ordered by God to take "every clean beast. . . the male and his female. . . (the) fowls of the air. . . to keep seed alive upon the face of all the earth" (Holy Bible, 12) into the ark.
In addition, Noah is instructed by God as to the design and manufacture of the ark, for He tells him that "the ark shall be three hundred cubits (in length), the breadth of it fifty cubits, and the height of it thirty cubits" (Holy Bible, 12); similarly, in the Epic of Gilgamesh, Utnapishtim is told that his vessel must be "ten….

Genesis Comparing and Contrasting Genesis 12 Essay

… Genesis

Comparing and Contrasting Genesis 12 and Genesis 20

One of the most taboo topics, even in our own society, is the question of what constitutes incest. In Genesis, this topic is addressed not once, but twice in Genesis 12 and Genesis 20. These incidents in the life of the patriarch Abraham (Abram) and his wife Sarah (Sarai) are, like other significant episodes in the first book of the Pentateuch, told and retold, virtually right after one another in ways that are similar but with some critical differences in plot and tone. Like the theoretical, dispassionate account of creation in Genesis 1, as contrasted with the chattier, more episodic version of creation in Genesis 2, these two different versions of the same incident of the….

Genesis 50 15 21 Thesis

… Genesis 50: 15-21

When Joseph's brothers saw that their father was dead, they said, "What if Joseph holds a grudge against us and pays us back for all the wrongs we did to him?" 16 So they sent word to Joseph, saying, "Your father left these instructions before he died: 17 'This is what you are to say to Joseph: I ask you to forgive your brothers the sins and the wrongs they committed in treating you so badly.' Now please forgive the sins of the servants of the God of your father." When their message came to him, Joseph wept.

His brothers then came and threw themselves down before him. "We are your slaves," they said.

But Joseph said to them, "Don't be afraid.…. [read more]

Genesis History or Myth? Term Paper

… Research began to notice that Genesis is divided into sections by phrases that are translated literally into "These are the generations of..," much in the same style as the clay tablets described by Wiseman. Early researchers mistakenly believed that these phrases signaled the beginning of a passage, however, the old texts placed these phrases at the end. It is therefore likely that in Genesis, these phrases signal the end of a passage, rather than the end (Sewell, 1994). The most prominent place that supports this idea is in Genesis 37:2, which begins "These are the generations of Jacob...." From that point forward the text describes Joseph and his brothers and almost nothing about Jacob. The story of Jacob is the theme of the previous section…. [read more]

Genesis Story Term Paper

… ¶ … Genesis story is perhaps the most important story of the Bible, it details the creation of the world and the specifically the creation of human beings. In Genesis, God said, "Let us make human beings in our image, after our likeness, to have dominion overall wild animals" (Genesis 1:26). Human nature as represented by Genesis is that we as human beings are made in the "likeness" of God and therefore, human nature dictates that we are different from animals because of our ability to rationalize. Human nature therefore, is also the nature of God Himself, we as human beings have a special place and role in the world compared to the rest of creation.

There are two basic elements to our humanity as…. [read more]

God in Genesis the Nature Essay

… In this chapter, God becomes anthropomorphized; he becomes more like human beings than in chapter 1. In becoming part of creation, more of his humanized characteristics become apparent. As such, God becomes potter, herdsman, and gardner. As God starts interacting with his creation, he also comes closer to the human mind in terms of understanding. It is easier to understand a God who does things as human beings would do them than it is to understand one who can create planets and life from nothing. As such, the creation process of Adam and Eve become more comprehensible than the creation process described in the first chapter.

In Genesis 1, then, God's creation acts are vast and panoramic. They are the first effort at putting into…. [read more]

Hebrew Bible (Genesis-1-22) and Bhagavad-Gita Essay

… He continues: "I am now engaged in slaying the race of man. Without thee all these warriors standing in the different divisions shall cease to be." (XXXV 5)

Perhaps one of the most intriguing aspects in contrasting similarities as well as distinctions between God and Krishna, as revealed by the Bible, subsequently, the Bhagavad Gita, remains the nature of Krishna. Although followers of Hinduism are keen on emphasizing Krishna's role as the ultimate creator of the Universe, he is nevertheless portrayed in the text as a form of incarnation leading many, including us, to wonder of his either man or God nature. In this respect, we know that, in the beginning, and following the creation of heaven and earth, "the spirit of God hovered over…. [read more]

Comparison of Genesis, Chapters Term Paper

… ¶ … Genesis: The Old Testament

Chapters 1 and 2 of Genesis are the first chapters of the first book (of five) from the Old Testament. The other four books of the Old Testament are: Exodus; Leviticus; Numbers; and Deuteronomy. The first chapter of Genesis describes the seven days during which God first created the earth. On each day, something new about the earth is created, so that by the seventh day, it is the earth we know today. Before the creation of the earth, all was darkness. The first three lines of Genesis, Chapter 1 (Genesis 1:1-1:3) are:

In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.

And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the…. [read more]

Genesis 1 (in the Old Term Paper

… As we read of the murder of Abel in Genesis I we read here in Exodus 20:13 its condemnation, "You shall not murder." There are no exceptions to the rule provided. It's a simple statement of fact that shows that the act of Cain's violence was condemned by God.

Reading the Exodus 20 and Genesis I we realize that while the two stories are comparable it was Genesis I that set the base for Exodus 20. Genesis means the beginning it is the initial stage for any action. The written words of the Old Testament in Genesis I seem hopeful and full of divination. The concepts are built on faith alone. It's a testament to the belief in God for setting aside physical evidence God…. [read more]

Hinduism and Christian Worldview Essay

… The confusion emanates from Hindu's believe in so many different Gods, which contributes to the existence of many different sects in the religion. However, these sects worship Braham, which implies that their origin is from Braham, the creator God (Achari, 2013).

On the question of identity, Hindus maintain that all living beings are manifestations of God regardless of their forms (Hays, 2011). Actually, Hindus believe that all living creatures have essentially equal souls and that humans do are not superior to other creatures. As a result, they even worship plants and animals because they provide food.

The question of meaning or purpose is Hindu is based on belief in four goals in life i.e. pleasure, wealth, harmony, and liberation. Pleasure and wealth consume every individual…. [read more]

Koran and Genesis a Comparison Thesis

… Thus, the sibling rivalry ends, and Joseph's dreams prove true -- specifically, that his brothers will bow down before him and he will rule over them. However, he does not rule as a tyrant, but mercifully, forgiving all debts -- again, foreshadowing Christ Who suffers for all sins and forgives sinners.

Koran 12.7-20

In the Koran, however, the details of the story are a bit different, not least because Joseph is not designed to be viewed as a prefiguring of Christ or of forgiveness. The role of mercy is retained for the king and for God. Yet, let us look to see how the Koran treats of the sibling rivalry found in the Joseph narrative.

The brothers who become envious of Joseph's power plot to…. [read more]

Theology the Theological Message Research Paper

… But at the end of all effort, he saw that everything he had achieved was only vanity and of no profit to him. He realized that he could not gain more, spend more, collect more, carouse more or sin more but pleasure cannot guarantee meaning in life (Krell, HBCNYC 2011).


Through his use of wisdom in the pursuit of the meaningful life and lasting happiness, Solomon found two important principles (Krell 2008). The wise man and the fool both die. The wise man and the fool are both soon forgotten. The total of all knowledge, progress and technology does not necessarily make life richer. Many people are still unhappy despite their possessions. For his part, Solomon, at first, thought that the wise man had…. [read more]

Gender as Prison at First Term Paper

… While certainly there are many people who believe that right-wing Christians have far more power in American government (and society as a whole) than is healthy or appropriate in a secular democracy, the United States remains distant and distinct in important ways from Gilead. However, Afghanistan under the rule of the Taliban was startlingly similar to the world in the novel. The Taliban created a world that was precisely like that of Gilead in which the civil rights of all people were compromised, but the civil rights of women were obliterated.

The parallels between Afghani women lives when the Taliban ruled their nation and the lives of different groups of women in The Handmaid's Tale are eerily abundant: Like Afghani women forced by law and…. [read more]

Do Heaven and Hell Really Exist? Research Paper

… ¶ … Heaven and Hell really exist?

The most common question that is often asked by people belonging from different religions is in relation to the reality of the existence of the heaven and hell, the end of the world, the outcomes of the actions of the people in the world and if the world will end. From these questions, the most important one is in relation to the existence of the heaven and hell. This question is the main fact to be considered in this paper. What is the heaven or hell, what is the reason of existence and do these really exist and what kinds of actions will define the final destination of a person. The research paper will argue on the reality…. [read more]

Using Comparison and Contrast Essay

… ¶ … Slaughterhouse Five the Novel and the Movie

The novel Slaughterhouse-Five by Kurt Vonnegut Jr. was published in 1969 and George Roy Hill directed the film based on the book just three years later in 1972. While the major themes of the book remain intact in the movie, there are differences in texture and depth due the limitations of the film media. Both the book and the novel weave three storylines together through the life of the protagonist, Billy Pilgrim, who has become 'unstuck' in time and randomly experiences life out of chronological order. One storyline focuses on Billy's suburban home life as an adult and a child, another is based on Billy's experiences during the Second World War, and the third involves Billy's…. [read more]

Bible Role & Characteristics of God's Angels Essay

Angels of the Lord

Chapter 3: Angels

Angels have been used by God to accomplish his purposes and to assist his people throughout history both recorded and unrecorded history. Angels are mentioned 273 times in the scripture and in 33 of the 66 books of the Bible. (Fruchtenbaum, nd) Angels are mentioned in the Gospels and for instance in the book of Matthew 16:27 where it states as follows:

"For the Son of Man shall come in the glory of his Father with His angels, and then he shall reward each one according to his works."

The Book of Acts in chapter 7: 52-53 states as follows:

"Which of the prophets did your fathers not persecute? And they killed…. [read more]

Deuteronomy, Chapter 7, Verses 1-11 Thesis

… Deuteronomy 7:1-11

The fifth book of the Pentateuch, or Jewish Torah is known as Deuteronomy, translated from the Hebrew word Devarim, which means "things or words." Most of the material inside Deuteronomy consists of a series of lessons ostensibly delivered by Moses as he reviewed he past forty years of wandering in the desert. The central element in the Book is that of a series of detailed law-codes that allow the Israelites to live in the promised land with fewer outside contacts. Theologically, the book renewed and professed the covenant between God and the Children of Israel. Although conservative tradition holds that Moses wrote most of the passage, most modern scholarship believes it to be a product of reform carried out under King Josiah, with…. [read more]

Slow USA Econ Recovery Chapter IV Term Paper

… Slow USA Econ Recovery

Chapter IV -- Summary

Chapter V -- Recommendations

There has always been a disharmony between economic theory and economic reality as it relates to the actions execute to stimulate and sustain economic growth. Whether it be Keynesian actions or actions more tailored towards the supply-side argument, there is not always a smooth translation between economic practice and the ensuing results. At the very least there is always a lag and it is sometimes hard to decipher where action "A" truly led to result "B" and/or whether it even inhibited it.

This line of thought has become even more poignant and clearer through situations like the economic recovery in the United States after the so-called "Great Recession" that ran from 2007 to…. [read more]

Ecclesiastes, Chapter Essay

… Exegesis on Ecclesiastes - Chapter 2

The task of elaborating on the second chapter of Ecclesiastes is not to be taken lightly. The perfection of Solomon's words are revealed in the fact that God chose to use him as a trumpet many times. The book of Ecclesiastes both autobiographical and proverbial. Since Solomon had the means to accomplish any desire, he was able to sample anything humanity could wish. He was able to sin against God with all the depravity of his heart. He says "my mind still guiding me with wisdom" in verse three meaning that throughout the entire process he maintained his wisdom. Thus, he was able to analyze, better than any man, the extent of his depravity, and the extent to which…. [read more]

Genesis Translator Robert Alter Term Paper

… English Literature

The Book of Genesis as Translated by Robert Alter

Since the time that the Book of Genesis, as tradition holds, was presented to be the story of the creation of the universe, it has been open to interpretation. In modern times, one of the most well-known interpreters of this sacred text is Robert Alter. This paper will use the theory of Alter to discuss the Jacob stories from Genesis; more specifically, the nature/identity of the "man" that Jacob wrestles with as well as the assertion that God does believe in right and wrong, reward and punishment.

This being stated, however, in the case of Jacob, it sometimes seems that God passively reacts or delays in His punishment of Jacob, despite his cheating of…. [read more]

Albert Einstein and Winston Churchill Research Paper

… In the 1920's, Einstein also took upon the construction of the unified field of theories, although he continued to work on the probabilistic interpretation of quantum theory, and he persevered with this work in America. He contributed to statistical mechanics by his development of the quantum theory of a monatomic gas and he has also accomplished valuable work in connection with atomic transition probabilities and relativistic cosmology (Paul. 1996).

Albert Einstein was a receiver of many honorary doctorate degrees in science, medicine and philosophy, from many recognized universities of Europe and America. The 1920's and 30's he gave many lectures in Europe, America and the Far East and was awarded fellowship and membership is almost all the universities he visited. He received awards for his….

Comparing and Contrasting Christianity and Islam Essay

… Islam Christianity

The Distinctions Between Common Faiths: Christianity and Islam

World religions such as Christianity and Islam both today and throughout history have been directly linked to one another by similarly inspired scriptures. It is from these scriptures that observers can derive a sense of inspiration and a force of divine authority, with the parables and teachings of the holy doctrines pronouncing the will of God. This is the simple proposition that begins this difficult discussion on the different ways that we may understand, interpret and ultimately deduce truth in the experience of engaging the scriptures.

Especially as we approach the messianic figures at the center of each faith, we come to see a common thread in the major world faiths. Indeed, through these two…. [read more]

Enuma Elish vs. Genesis Term Paper

… As creation goes on in both stories, the steps are quite similar as both detail, and in much the same order, the creation of the firmament, the creation of dry land, the creation of the sun, moon and stars, and the creation of men and women. The final step of both involves the resting of the God who did the creation.

The differences are also easy to spot as well as it relates to comparing the Enuma Elish and the story as told in Genesis. In Genesis, the seventh day is sanctified as the Sabbath but it is a time of celebration in Enuma Elish. In Genesis, a single God created the earth but it was a god and a goddess fighting each other in…. [read more]

Adam and Eve Differs Term Paper

… In looking at the texts of St. Augustine we can see that he is clearly illustrating that God has always been there for man in his caring, loving and nurturing father like role, yet he is also showing that God in his power is a force that will not tolerate the breaking of any law.

This is further illustrated with the demise of Lucifer and the angels, the y have broken Gods law and have been punished. When Adam and Eve broke God's Law they in turn were punished, but Gods' love was unique and endearing although he forced them from the Garden of Eden and made them suffer a mortals life he gave them ability to multiply. Yet even with this he forced the…. [read more]

Effects of Technology on Disruptive Behavior From a Teacher's Perspective Multiple Chapters

… ¶ … Technology on Disruptive Behavior

What is the effect of teachers' attitude toward the implementation of a computer-based program on disruptive behavior?

Disruptive behavior from students is one of the nightmares that the teachers have to go through when they are teaching in class. The students with this problem keep on intervening appropriately in class while others are trying to read. The computer-based program will have different effects on disruptive behavior for the students. For some instances, it is possible that the effect will be positive leading to students having better attentiveness in class. However, there are cases when the computer-based programs will lead to even more disruptive behavior for the students. Thus, the effectiveness of these programs is all-dependent on the attitudes of….

Suicide Rates Among Geriatric Persons Term Paper

… The questionnaire shall consist of questions regarding general welfare and general feelings of contentment vs. dissatisfaction in relation to services being provided, family involvement, independence, and general health. I will model the questionnaire on that performed by Lawton in 1984:

The most detailed attempt to differentiate aspects of subjective well being was made by Lawton (1984) who administered a large number of questionnaires for different scales to 285 U.S. subjects. Two general factors emerged, which Lawton argued represented interior well-being, including self-esteem, satisfaction with past life and positive attitudes to present health, and exterior well-being, including satisfaction with accommodation and social contacts. (Coleman, 1995, p. 56)

Additionally for the needs of this study there will be a standardized diagnostic questionnaire for depression which will include…. [read more]

Creation Stories a Comparison Essay

… Also like the Babylonian myth, this gives the story a very clear arc, beginning with formless chaos and ending with the creation of man, all while creating a very reverential atmosphere and demonstrating certain values and characteristics that are obviously supposed to be appreciated over others (Henry 2011; Jamieson 2011). The substance of this creation myth is also very neatly summarized: God creates absolutely everything, including the very concepts of order and matter, and He does so singularly and through the use of his judgment (witnessing everything that is "good" before moving on to the next project). It is also here that the similarities between these two creation myths end, and where significant differences begin to occur.

Form, Substance, and Purpose

It has already been…. [read more]

Unless this fact is taken into account, Wellhausen cautioned, "one will above all fail to understand the great work accomplished by the prophets in destroying Old Israel, and preparing the way first for Judaism, and then for the Gospel"; however, Wellhausen did not merely employ literary arguments as his predecessors had done. In fact, he went so far as to track the development of religious forms and practices and provided an examination of the religious cult of the Hebrews, their ceremonials and holy places, and an analysis of the historical books of the Old Testament. Furthermore, this historian had larger plans for the future including an analysis of…. [read more]

Decline of the American Dream in the Great Gatsby Research Proposal

… ¶ … Decline of the American Dream Depicted in Fitzgerald's the Great Gatsby

Scott Fitzgerald's novel, the Great Gatsby is a novel that reveals many things about human nature and the inclinations of the human spirit, namely the weakness of it as it becomes tempted with the promise of excess and materialism. When we read the novel, some of the details become hideous to us, as we do not like to think that man can fall pretty to such whims and devices and perhaps this is the truth that makes the novel such a classic. In the novel, we have the very basic creature of man that is experiencing life at a time of extreme freedom - or, at the least, a need to be…. [read more]
