Romans 12:1-2 the Quotation Guiding Term Paper

… Romans 12:1-2

The quotation guiding this presentation is, "The Scriptures themselves attest to the importance of our minds in our spiritual formation in Christ." One of the most critical New Testament texts in this regard is also Paul's most important statement of Christian dedication in Romans 12: 21-22. This text serves as an important statement of the vitality of the New Testament. The Epistle to the Romans, often referred to only as Romans, was written by Paul, probably at Corinth, and then sent to Rome. It is only one of a series of letters written by Paul as he set out to explain the scriptures and to link different beliefs and different groups together into the developing church. Paul wrote the entire letter to gain…. [read more]

Paul Keating's Redfern Speech Essay

… In this, the yoking of ethos to pathos is evident. Keating establishes the national ethos at the beginning of the speech, even going so far as to remind the audience that he speaking on that occasion in 1993 to launch the International Year of the World's Indigenous People. Australia's participation in this international event serves as a signal to the citizens of the country that they are -- at last -- to make good on a commitment the success of which has eluded them again and again. That failure is unacceptable to all the people of Australia and the success of this renewed initiative is fundamentally linked to the Australian identity. The way forward must embrace indigenous Australians and rectify the wrongs they continue to…. [read more]

Exogenesis of Paul's Letter to the Romans Term Paper

… Romans 7 7-25

Main Idea and Outline

The main idea of this exegetical paper is to describe the understanding and knowledge contained within the passage Romans 7-7:25, which helps the reader find balance between, man's, nature's and God's law.

Romans 7-7:25

What shall we say, then? Is the law sinful? Certainly not! Nevertheless, I would not have known what sin was had it not been for the law. For I would not have known what coveting really was if the law had not said, "You shall not covet." 8 but sin, seizing the opportunity afforded by the commandment, produced in me every kind of coveting. For apart from the law, sin was dead. 9 Once I was alive apart from the law; but when the…. [read more]

Paul's Use of the Old Research Paper

… Malachi 1.2-3

Paul used this Old Testament account because he wanted the Jewish community to understand that it needed to return to covenant faithfulness. Malachi emphasized that the Jewish community had a tendency to question God's love for them and this violated the very tradition that it was built on. Paul considered that it was essential for Jews to understand that their community has put across sinful and blasphemous attitudes with regard to the Lord. He expected that by acknowledging that they were arrogant and disrespectful they would eventually be enabled to change their position.


The Old Testament played an important role in the development of the Early Church. It supported the belief that Jesus was the Messiah and that some of the most…. [read more]

Paul the Apostle Paul (Formerly Research Paper

… However, rather than fleeing, Paul and Silas remain obediently in their cell, and their behavior convinces the jailer to convert, so that another Christian household was established in Philippi (Acts 16:27-34). After chastising the city magistrates for beating Roman citizens (as Paul and Silas were), Paul and Silas were allowed to leave, and they visited Lydia once again before setting out for Thessalonica (Acts 16:35-40).

From Thessalonica the trio traveled to Berea, and it was here that they parted ways, with Silas and Timothy remaining while Paul continued on to Athens. From Athens, Paul traveled to Corinth, Antioch, and Ephesus. As the reader will likely note, Paul established major churches in Thessalonica, Corinth, and Ephesus, as evidenced by his later epistles to each of these…. [read more]

Romans 1 -- 8 Teaches Essay

… The fact that the Roman Empire promoted different religious ideologies did not stop numerous citizens from deciding to choose God as their spiritual leader. Paul actually reinforces this idea by referring to God by using a personal pronoun. This demonstrates that the Apostle did not think of God as being an abstract entity, as he actually believed that He was his friend and his savior.

Paul thanks God by referring to Jesus Christ as a means through which he is enabled to reach out to the divine. This further emphasizes the fact that inter-human relationships had become especially complex by that time and that Paul practically describes Jesus Christ as a mediator meant to guarantee a stronger connection between believers and God.

Paul's statement brings…. [read more]

Paul's First Missionary Journey Research Paper

… The word of God brings joy and Holy Spirit to the believers. Thus, the missionary journey of Paul brought joy to the people who believed, alongside meeting the expectations of the great commissioning.

Paul and Barnabas arrive at Iconium

They travelled southeast from Pisidia to Iconium. This journey proved challenging as they met many challenges along the way. Additionally, on arrival in Iconium, they found divided people, as some did not believe while others believed

. Nonetheless, they pursued the mission purpose, to make disciples for Christ. Therefore, they went preaching in the Jewish synagogue, preaching with such power and zeal that large numbers of both the Jews and Greeks converted into Christianity. However, as it happened in Pisidia, some of the Jews manipulated the…. [read more]

Exegesis to Understand 2 Corinthians Essay

… But Paul does not linger on this vision very long in the letter. He goes on to speak of the many troubles he has encountered since he had the vision and how weak these troubles have made him. Talking about his vision and how special it makes him (or talking about it any further) would only make him look foolish, though he is clear to point out that he would be well within his rights to brag and speak of such things. But Paul doesn't want the Corinthians to judge him on how special he is for having had this experience. He wants them to judge him based on how they see him now, weaknesses and all. It is what he is doing now that…. [read more]

Religion Historical Purpose of Romans Research Paper

… They were not the original branches, though broken, that God had loved and made a part of His intended kingdom since the days of Abraham. Paul's use of strong language in both their cases is meant to ensure that Jews and gentiles understand there place in the family of God, and what the lot of the other is also.

Israel Not Rejected

Paul was from the class of Israelites, a Pharisee, who knew the most about the law and the prophets. To be a member, he had to be able to quote easily from the Law (Torah) and the Prophets (Neviim). But, he knew that the people he was speaking to could also. He did not have to explain to the Jewish Christians what he…. [read more]

Christian Worldview in Paul's Epistle to the Romans Essay

… At Romans 3:22-26, Paul emphasizes Christ's sacrifice on the cross was literally one of atonement for the sins of mankind. Here Paul emphasizes that the sacrifice redeems Jew and Gentile alike, and that Christ's sacrifice guarantees grace and redemption for all who believe. Indeed in Romans Chapter 5, Paul emphasizes that Christ genuinely died for the least worthy, the ungodly and the sinners, as this is the fullest expression of God's mercy to extend such reconciliation to all. By the next chapter, Paul is emphasizing that Christ's resurrection is something that the believer takes part in, through a sort of spiritual rebirth or renewal: the believer's old self (of sin and ungodliness) may be considered to be crucified with Christ, and the believer is therefore….

Epistle to the Romans Paul Term Paper

… Thus, mankind is justified through faith, and following this justification, is sanctified though the Spirit such that the individual's actions will begin to reflect the nature of the Spirit of Jesus, rather than the flesh.

This detail is crucial for understanding the relation of Romans to everyday Christian experience, because it reveals the continued importance of actions even in light of the fact that actions will never be sufficient for redemption. This sanctification is the outward demonstration of the inner justification made possible through faith, just as Abraham's circumcision was the outward demonstration of the justification he received through his faith, such that "sanctification is the consequence-- rather than the grounds -- of justification."

Thus, mankind is saved through faith, and is subsequently transformed through…. [read more]

Romans Essay

… (Peake 2001) God had delivered salvation, cleansed humanity of it's sin, through the death and resurrection of Christ. Jesus' death was an expiation, a means of removing sins, and in this act God demonstrated his righteousness, his goodness by allowing all humanity a way out of their sinful condition. And he did this through the death and resurrection of his son, Jesus.

In the modern world, many of these passages seem difficult to understand and out of touch, but the wisdom and righteousness of these messages are truly timeless. As a Christian in the 21st century, how does obeying the Law of Moses fit in with modern life? How does God's salvation work in the computer age. The importance of this particular passage was to….

Paul Impacted the Development of Christianity Term Paper

… Paul impacted the development of Christianity more than any other individual except for Jesus himself. Born into a Jewish family under Roman rule in Tarsus, a Greek province of what is modern-day Turkey, Paul's original name was Saul. What historians know of Paul can be gleaned largely through scripture and his own letters, or epistles, which have since been included as books of the New Testament. Although he was born into an already religious family, his life changed considerably after his encounters with Jesus Christ and his teachings. Mainly, Paul went from a detractor of Jesus to a complete believer and subsequently, an apostle and preacher of Christian faith.

Scholars disagree on whether or not Paul actually met Jesus. However, Paul at least claimed to…. [read more]

Roman Identity Thesis

… Roman Urbanization

Why was Urbanization an Important Element for the Construction of a Roman Identity?

The challenges of nation and empire building have been a fascination of western civilization since before the industrial revolution, which marked a period of massive alterations in the development of urban centers for trade and commerce in such societies. Yet, it must also be made clear that the development of urban centers occurred in the model society, for much of Western development, i.e. Rome. Roman identity was in fact, largely based on the functional and fundamental development that made urbanization in building a culture possible. It is in fact fair to say that the development of Roman identity was fundamentally dependant on urbanization, as the city state was the most…. [read more]

Paul Wolfowitz Term Paper

… Paul Wolfowitz

Considered by many "one of the most hawkish members of the Bush administration," Paul Wolfowitz is seen as the main artisan of war against terror and is known for his advocacy of military action as the potential and most sustainable and efficient solution for any outside provocation. Working for 24 years under six different presidents, Paul Wolfowitz's career in Washington is circumscribed to his activity within the Department of Defense, as Under Secretary of Defense for Policy, during George H.W. Bush's mandate at the White House, and as Deputy Secretary of Defense, but also to his diplomatic activity. Indeed, Paul Wolfowitz has worked in the Department of State as Assistant Secretary of State for East Asian and Pacific Affairs and has served as…. [read more]

Paul Celan's Poem Todesfuge Term Paper

… Paul Celan's Poem "Todesfuge"

Todesfuge or Death Fugue is one of Paul Celan's earliest creations, and, at the same time, one of his best-known works. Roughly speaking, the poem describes the experience of the Holocaust, from one of the horrifying concentration camps. The most interesting aspect of the poem is however the way in which the Celan translates the experience into language. The text has been sometimes criticized precisely because it transposes the hard reality of the Holocaust in a highly aesthetic manner, which seems, at first sight, to divert the attention from the atrocities of death and of the concentration camp. Nevertheless, Paul Celan does not transform the experience aesthetically but rather creates a self-standing reality to describe the other reality of the Holocaust.…. [read more]

Paul the Apostle's Second Missionary Research Paper

… Shortly after their initial conversion, the two young lovers accompanied Paul and his supporters to Ephesus. This would prove to be the location in which Paul would leave his most lasting tangible mark. With the help of his disciples and the young couple of Aquila and Priscilla, Paul the Apostle constructed the foundations of what would become one of the most faithful and prominent Churches of the time (Dunn 1998).

The works and teachings of Paul have been monumental on the shaping of Christian beliefs and rituals as well as the amalgamation of various ethnicities into the Christian faith. His life and his primary message (which is especially evident during his second missionary journey) certainly apply directly to the fundamental aspects of any ministry. For…. [read more]

Impact of the Epistle of Paul to Philemon on Slavery Dissertation

… ¶ … Epistle of Paul to Philemon on Slavery

This paper will be focused on the Impact of the Epistle of Paul to Philemon on Slavery. The paper will start off (chapter 1: introduction) with an overview of the historical context in which slavery has existed over the years in the world. The historical context will be taken from the Americas, the Roman Empire as well as the theological and religious content available. The purpose of the introduction being designed this way is to provide the reader with a general idea of how slavery was structured during the time Apostle Paul had written to Philemon. The second chapter will be the literature review where the first few pages will give more insight on slavery as…. [read more]

New Testament Book of Romans Research Proposal

… New Testament Book Of Romans

God inspired Paul to write the New Testament Book of Romans, and several other books in the New Testament, as well as inspired other men to write the books of the Bible, Sir Isaac Newton asserts. Along with the "discovery" God authored the words in the Bible men wrote; that Biblical words evolve more than from mere human musings, Newton crafted calculus, discovered the laws of motion, as well as the law of gravitation, and constructed the first reflecting telescope. Newton boldly professed his Christian faith, and before he died, wrote more than a million words of notes on the Bible.

Paul, of Jewish origin and identity; noted in Romans. 11:1: "I am an Israelite myself, a descendant of Abraham,…. [read more]

Paul's Message Term Paper

… As "through Man came death," so only "through Man" could come the resurrection of the dead. This is more than a reference to the resurrection of an individual making things different for other individuals. Just as Adam's creation and fall represented the creation and fall of Man, so the resurrection of Christ was essentially the coming into being of a redeemed humanity. This occurred when God returned Jesus to Man as a sign of his endorsement of Christ's teachings. It was only then that all men were seen as sinful but at the same time eligible for the 'free gift' of salvation.

The word "Christ," besides designating the person of Jesus, also represented the saving event in history of which he was the progenitor; we…. [read more]

MLK Letter From Birmingham Essay

… Once again, King uses religion and history to defend himself. King points to various religious figures that were once considered to be extremist and does not consider it a negative thing that he has been included with those men. King cites Jesus as an extremist for love, Amos as an extremist for justice, and Paul -- whom he models himself after -- as an extremist for the Christian Gospel. Like Amos who stated, "Let justice roll down like waters and righteousness like an ever flowing stream," King believes that once initial obstacles of injustice are overcome, the civil rights movement and their advocacy of justice will gain momentum like a river and that justice will prevail and endure. Additionally, King refers to John Bunyan who…. [read more]

Paul's Prayers Essay

… ¶ … Paul is different from other Biblical praying men because he experienced a radical transformation by God. His life literally turned upside down and he could not run or hide from it. While he underwent a change so powerful that he went by another name thereafter, he was still unique and people recognized this about him. He possessed special strengths and abilities over and above the average praying man. One of the most interesting aspects about him was that he was a healer. He healed a crippled man in Lystra by commanding him to '"Stand up on your feet!'" (Acts 14:10). In Acts 20:10, Paul threw himself upon a young man that fell from a rooftop and died, reviving him. Paul even healed himself…. [read more]

Letter From a Birmingham Jail, Martin Luther Thesis

… ¶ … Letter from a Birmingham Jail, Martin Luther King Jr. defends acts of civil disobedience in the fight for Black equality to supposedly moderate white ministers who oppose the movement.

First point of Analysis: Martin Luther King Jr. skillfully tailors his use of Biblical allusions to suit his intended audience of white ministers.

Text Evidence: Just as the prophets of the eighth century B.C. left their villages and carried their "thus saith the Lord" far beyond the boundaries of their home towns, and just as the Apostle Paul left his village of Tarsus and carried the gospel of Jesus Christ to the far corners of the Greco Roman world, so am I compelled to carry the gospel of freedom beyond my own home town.….

Roman Republic Term Paper

… At that time, and throughout the history of the empire, the wealthiest territories and largest cities (except Rome) were in the east, which was and remained a Greek-Hellenistic culture rather than a Latin one. Even then, Octavian-Augustus did not proclaim himself emperor, but merely first citizen and first counsel. Throughout the Early Empire, up to the point when the emperors relocated the capital from Rome, there remained an influential group of conservative aristocrats who looked backward to a restoration of the Republic. Among these were historians like Tacitus and Suetonius, whose portraits of the early emperors could hardly have been less flattering.


In considering the Late Roman Republic, there would be a wide variety of primary and secondary sources from which to choose.…. [read more]

Working Through R. Paul Stevens Essay

… "

These alternatives to a "calling" are in sharp contrast to what the Bible says about vocations, Stevens reflects. He uses the words of Martin Luther -- one of the "Reformers" -- to illustrate the importance of ordinary people understanding the value of a calling. Luther criticized those entering monastic situations who believed that they had a "special calling" and that they were "superior Christians" -- while ordinary Christians were supposed to react to the commands of the superior Christians (75).

The call of God "…comes to each at the common tasks," Luther wrote; hence, Luther believed there "simply is no special religious vocation." In fact, Luther's views coincide seamlessly with Stevens, which of course is why Stevens chose Luther's narratives. Luther was known to…. [read more]

End Times of the Roman Empire vs. U.S Term Paper

… Greek and Roman

It is, at least on the surface, an easy comparison to make between the fall of the Roman Empire and the current state of the United States. Indeed the arguments for a direct comparison are manifest. but, are they accurate? Can an empire that reigned over the known world for centuries be compared to a current collapse of the United States's popular opinion and economy throughout the world? Perhaps. The truth is that in the timeline, the United States has held preeminence among the other nations of the world only since the collapse of the Soviet Union just a little over ten years ago - and that does not an empire make. What then, when we make these comparisons to are we…. [read more]

Romans Offers a Thorough Framework Essay

… However, human relationships are far more problematic. An originally and immutably sinful nature causes human relationships to be qualified by depravity, violence, and lust. "There is sin that is against our own bodies and souls, but there is also sin that is against other people who are created in God's image," (West, 2013, p. 1). Given that all people sin, relationships are among the most treacherous aspects of the human experience. The only way to purify and make right the relationships between people is through faith in Christ. Developing a relationship with Christ can help place each person on the righteous path, which can lead to harmonious dealings with other faithful beings.

Human relationships beget human culture. In Romans, Paul frequently discusses the problems with…. [read more]

Roman Catholicism Thesis

… Roman Catholicism

According to many Roman Catholics, the history of Catholicism is the history of Christianity. This claim may not be that farfetched, since the Roman Catholic Church was fully functioning as a church by the middle of the first century, near the advent of Christianity. Roman Catholics believe that Jesus "assigned to Peter the responsibility of establishing the Christian church. Peter traveled to Rome where he was the first pope. At his death, his work was continued by a continuous succession of popes." (Robinson). Catholics believe that "Jesus' Apostles ordained bishops, who in turn ordained the next generation of bishops" in a tradition that continues today, so that each modern ordained bishop can trace his line of succession back to Jesus. (Robinson). Jesus was…. [read more]

New Testament What City Term Paper

… Marriage is one of the problems posed in I Corinthians. Given the Christian emphasis on sexual purity, the church at Corinth is confused about the permissibility of marriage. Paul responds with a praise of chastity but advises that it is better to marry than to burn (i.e., to suffer from the fires of lust, or possibly damnation.)

10. Explain the metaphor in Ephesians used to describe the relationship between Christ and his church.

Paul's metaphor in Ephesians 5:21-32 describes Christ's relation to the church in terms of a husband's relation to his wife. Christ is like the husband, and the church is like the wife. Christ loved the faithful as a husband loves his wife, and sacrificed Himself for the salvation and purity of the…. [read more]

Early Christianity Term Paper

… Paul is said to be filled with the Holy Spirit after his conversion. The Holy Spirit exemplifies how the apostles are continuing to do the work of Jesus: they are not working to serve their own egos; rather the Holy Spirit moves within them to do good and to serve the mission of Christ. The Holy Spirit is not a physical presence, but a spiritual force invested in all of the apostles. "They saw what seemed to be tongues of fire that separated and came to rest on each of them. All of them were filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak in other tongues as the Spirit enabled them" (Acts 2:1-3).

Q4. Explain how 1 Corinthians 13 (the chapter about love) relates…. [read more]
