An Analysis Of Gospel Elements In Selected Major Works Of Charles Dickens, Steven Smith May 1990

An Analysis Of Gospel Elements In Selected Major Works Of Charles Dickens, Steven Smith

Master of Sacred Theology Thesis

It is my thesis that Dickens' use of "Gospel elements" in the works studied is both intentional and fundamental to the themes and structures of the novels. The Gospel elements present are no afterthought or coincidence but significant in Dickens' intent and meaning.

The Foolishness Of Christ Crucified Viewed From The Point Of Incipient Gnosticism At Corinth, William Goerss May 1962

The Foolishness Of Christ Crucified Viewed From The Point Of Incipient Gnosticism At Corinth, William Goerss

Master of Sacred Theology Thesis

The thesis of this paper is that at Corinth Paul did take over some of the thought patterns and vocabulary of an incipient Gnosticism with Judaic overtones. But instead of being influenced theologically by the borrowed terms, he used them for his consistent preaching of the crucified Savior, the true Wisdom of God. He was well aware of the uniqueness of the religion he preached; its real source lay not in the current thought forms of either Judaism or Hellenism, but in the Person, 'Preaching and redemptive work of the crucified Son of God.


Jesus Christ According To The Koran, John Gall May 1948

Jesus Christ According To The Koran, John Gall

Master of Sacred Theology Thesis

There are twenty-five passages in the Koran, the holy book of the Mohammedans, in which the name "Jesus" appears.

To answer these questions accurately has been the ambition of Islamic scholars for many years.
