Durkheim
durkheim In 1776, Adam Smith opened The Wealth of Nations with the observation that "the greatest improvements in the productive powers of labour, and the greatest part of the skill, dexterity, and judgement with which it is anywhere directed, or applied, seem to have been the effects of the division of labour."1 Despite the numerous economic advantages thus derived, however, Smith insisted that the division of labor was not itself the effect of any human wisdom or foresight; rather, it was the

Validity of Bible What do modern biblical scholars think about the validity of the Bible? ¡°For the word of God is living and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the division of soul and spirit, and of joints and morrow, and is a discerner (sic) of the thoughts and intents of the heart¡± (Heb. 4:12). ¡°In the beginning . . .¡± is how the Bible starts (Gen. 1:1).

Search for the Ark of the Covenant When asked about the Ark of the Covenant, the average person usually responds with something along the lines of Harrison Ford starring in the first of the Indiana Jones trilogy. However, The Ark of the Covenant has significant ties to both ancient Christianity and Judaism. These two religions both have foundations in the Old Testament of The Bible, and their followers are often referred to as People of the Book (Robinson). There is some discrepancy as to what

Bronfenbrenner Why was Jesus Born, and did he come into the world? (John 18:36) One phrase summarizes the horror of hell. “ God isn’t there.” What if God weren’t here on earth? What if he never came to set us free? If you think that people are cruel now, imagine what it would be like without the presence of God. You think we are brutal to each other now, imagine the world without the Holy Spirit. You think there is loneliness and despair and guilt now, imagine life without the touch of Jesus. No

To find an example of leadership we go back to the Old Testament and see David the powerful, Saul the faithless, and Solomon, the kings of recognition.

In the New Testament of the Christian bible, the first four books Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John all talk about the life of Jesus. Jesus, in scripture, was regarded as the King of the Jews or the Messiah that would come to the world and save mankind from their sins. The question comes to mind on who Jesus really was when he walked the earth and what he did that made him so special and unique. Some of the things he did was he performed many miracles, accepted everyone for who they are, and died on

Judaism Broadly speaking one could trace the history of Judaism back to the early religion of Israel, the religion that produced the Hebrew Scriptures that are known to Christians as the Old Testament. Here, however, we take Judaism to refer to the religion that was known to Jesus and his contemporaries, and that was later developed and formulated by the Rabbis. A key date in the development of Judaism was 70 C.E. the year in which the Jerusalem Temple was destroyed by the Romans. Judaism of the

Her status was much higher in later times however, for she was a goddess well-known at Ugarit, the ancient Canaanite city-state now modern Ras Shamra in Syria, in the 14th century BCE, The Asherah that appears in the material unearthed t
