The Role Of The House Motif In The Gospel Of Mark, Brian Victor J. Beggs Dec 2005

The Role Of The House Motif In The Gospel Of Mark, Brian Victor J. Beggs

Theses

This study analyses the role of the house motif in Mark's Gospel since in the tradition, Jesus healed, forgave sin, taught and shared meals as well as the Last Supper in the house. It is argued that Mark was composed for a Gentile, Hellenist Christian house group in Rome and written soon after Nero's persecution (64-65 CE) of the Christian house-church communities and prior to the destruction of the temple in 70 CE. Though other studies support alternate sites in Galilee, Southern Syria and the Transjordan as the source of the Gospel, the traditional arguments favouring Rome indicate ...

Crumbs, Dogs, And Border - Crossings: A Postcolonial - Feminist Rereading Of The Syrophoenician Woman Story, Jane E. Hicks Dec 2005

Crumbs, Dogs, And Border - Crossings: A Postcolonial - Feminist Rereading Of The Syrophoenician Woman Story, Jane E. Hicks

Verbum

In lieu of an abstract, below is the essay's first paragraph.

"Recent scholarship in New Testament studies affords new insight into the character of the Syrophoenician woman in the Gospel of Mark, where she argues with a reluctant Jesus, urging, “even the dogs under the table eat the children’s crumbs.” New insights build from materialist approaches to scripture, and taken together, the figure of the Syrophoenician woman as set in her likely social-historical context is suggestive for moral agency today. The passage as a whole has been interpreted in various ways. Some traditionalist Christian readings have found a ...


Sufism: Islamic Mysticism, James L. Smith Jr. Dec 2005

Sufism: Islamic Mysticism, James L. Smith Jr.

Verbum

In lieu of an abstract, below is the essay's first paragraph.

"Sufism is the esoteric aspect of Islam. The aim of Sufis is to gain direct knowledge of the eternal, in this life, as opposed to the exoteric, or traditionalist, aspect of Islam which focuses on achieving a state of blessedness after death by way of carrying out divinely prescribed works. The history of Sufism is a long one, some tracing it directly back to The Prophet Muhammad."

"We are all so different And yet so utterly one, bound forever in our humanity. Million leaves, but one tree. Multitude religions, but one God. A banquet of diversity, Creation celebrating its ingenuity, a dance of its unity."

"Siddarta G, he might have sat underneath his bodhi tree, With the thoughts running in and out of his head. And then he said; “I think what the world needs is a good teacher, a good preacher,” “someone who could lay it all down for them.” And then he thought; “Why not me? I could be that man as well as anybody else could Be! Why not me? I’ll go and show them what they need to set them all free.” Because it’s about time that ...

Broken Truth On The Ocean Floor, Jeff Frate Dec 2005

Broken Truth On The Ocean Floor, Jeff Frate

Verbum

In lieu of an abstract, below is the essay's first paragraph.

"The following paper will confuse you; there are several seemingly unrelated themes starkly juxtaposed throughout. The topics are thrown together in seemingly random order to mimic what we see on television everyday - coverage of genocide in Rwanda immediately followed by Michael Jordan in Hanes boxers. The world is far more confusing than this paper."

“Texts Memorized, Texts Performed: A Reconsideration Of The Role Of Paritta In Sri Lankan Monastic Education.”, Jeffrey Samuels Dec 2005

“Texts Memorized, Texts Performed: A Reconsideration Of The Role Of Paritta In Sri Lankan Monastic Education.”, Jeffrey Samuels

Philosophy & Religion Faculty Publications

During the past twenty years there has been a growing interest in monastic education within the larger field of Buddhist studies. Within the last ten years in particular, a number of monographs and articles examining the training and education of monks in Korea (Buswell [1992]), Tibet/India (Dreyfus [2003]), Thailand/Laos (Collins [1990], McDaniel [2002, 2003]), and Sri Lanka (Blackburn [1999a, 1999b, 2001] Samuels [2002]), have been published. Many of those works have paid particular attention to the texts used in monastic training, as well as to how the information contained in those very texts is imparted to and embodied ...

Love, A True Fruit Of The Spirit, Courtney Ren Dec 2005

Love, A True Fruit Of The Spirit, Courtney Ren

Verbum

In lieu of an abstract, below is the essay's first paragraph.

"Love. Where would we be without love? Love is a strong reoccurring theme in our everyday lives and in the Bible. It is one of those emotions that we can not live without. Love causes so many different reactions and sensations that sometimes it is very overwhelming in both good and bad ways. But then again love makes everything better and the world would be nowhere without love. This raises another question; what is love and how do we know if it is “true” love or not? The ...


Luke 15: The Heart Of God, Terry N. Barnes Dec 2005

Luke 15: The Heart Of God, Terry N. Barnes

SOR Faculty Publications and Presentations

The fifteenth chapter of Luke recounts a contentious exchange between Jesus and the Pharisees, a confrontation where the Pharisees essentially attacked the moral character of Christ. After all, he accepted the company of wretched sinners.

In response to this grumbling, Jesus told them “this parable” (Luke 15:3). Yet what followed was not one but rather three stories: the story of the lost lamb, the lost coin, and what is commonly but incorrectly known as the prodigal son.

Yet these three stories are merely a three time recounting of a unified message. They were told to the same audience, they ...


A Biblical And Theological Analysis Of Tithing: Toward A Theology Of Giving In The New Covenant Era, David A. Croteau Dec 2005

A Biblical And Theological Analysis Of Tithing: Toward A Theology Of Giving In The New Covenant Era, David A. Croteau

Faculty Dissertations

Chapter 1 summarized some of the methodological and hermeneutical issues and discussed the problem and history of tithing in Christianity. Various arguments through the centuries have been proposed that provided reasons for the abrogation and the continuation of tithing. The "Christian view" on this issue has not been monolithic. Chapter 2 discussed tithing in the Old Testament and concluded that (1) the pre-Mosaic period contained no tithing system and no command to tithe, (2) in the Mosaic law the Israelites gave well-beyond ten percent and only products connected to the land were liable to tithing, and (3) the Historical and ...

Identifying Some Characteristics Of Children's Spirituality In Australian Catholic Primary Schools: A Study Within Hermeneutic Phenomenology, Brendan Hyde Dec 2005

Identifying Some Characteristics Of Children's Spirituality In Australian Catholic Primary Schools: A Study Within Hermeneutic Phenomenology, Brendan Hyde

Theses

This qualitative research study aimed to identify, through classroom observation and conversation, some characteristics of children's spirituality in Australian Catholic primary schools. In the context of this study, spirituality was described as an essential human trait. While much of the recent literature in the field describes spirituality in terms of connectedness and relationality, in this study spirituality was described as a movement towards Ultimate Unity (de Souza, 2004a, 2004b), whereby at the deepest and widest levels of connectedness, an individual's true Self may experience unity with Other. Spirituality was also described as the outward expression of such unity ...


Cornelius P. Lott And His Contribution To The Temporal Salvation Of The Latter-Day Saint Pioneers Through The Care Of Livestock, Gary S. Ford Dec 2005

Cornelius P. Lott And His Contribution To The Temporal Salvation Of The Latter-Day Saint Pioneers Through The Care Of Livestock, Gary S. Ford

All Theses and Dissertations

This thesis combines two studies: the role of livestock in the temporal salvation of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in the Mormon exodus of 1846 and Cornelius P. Lott's contribution in the care of cattle and sheep during that time period. At Winter Quarters, the Church and its members depended in large measure for their survival upon the sizeable cattle herds they had acquired prior to their exodus from Nauvoo and during their trek across Iowa. Church leaders relied on men like Lott, whose expertise in the care of livestock, contributed significantly to the salvation of ...
