The New Perspective On Paul And The Correlation With The Book Of James, Zach M. Scott 2017 Liberty University

The New Perspective On Paul And The Correlation With The Book Of James, Zach M. Scott

Senior Honors Theses

The New Perspective on Paul is a new theory of how to interpret the Pauline epistles through the lens of first century Judaism. Three of the leading scholars that hold to the New Perspective are E.P. Sanders, James D.G. Dunn, and N.T. Wright. These men have done their best to defend the New Perspective of Paul, but have not adequately used, or explained the arguments set forth in the book of James, specifically found in James 2:14-26. The New Perspective fails to either give an analysis of James through the proposed lens of the New Perspective ...


An Impossible Standard: The Virgin Mary And The Construction Of Southern Womanhood, Dean Symmonds 2017 Hollins University

An Impossible Standard: The Virgin Mary And The Construction Of Southern Womanhood, Dean Symmonds

Undergraduate Research Awards

This paper examines Southern literature about white women in its religious and cultural contexts to illuminate the deeply embedded connections between the figure of the Virgin Mary and the archetypes of the white Southern Belle and Dixie Madonna, and reveal both a complex web of cultural constructions designed to control, critique, and constrain Southern women, and how women use those constructions to free themselves.

The Ancient Doctrine Of The Two Ways And The Book Of Mormon, Noel B. Reynolds 2017 Brigham Young University - Provo

The Ancient Doctrine Of The Two Ways And The Book Of Mormon, Noel B. Reynolds

All Faculty Publications

Scholars have long recognized that a number of ancient cultures shared a traditional doctrine of the Two Ways that could be used to instruct youth and others in the right way to live their lives. While the language of the Two Ways surfaces on occasion in both the Old and New Testaments, the doctrine is not developed or explained in any detail in the Bible. However, noncanonical texts of the Greco-Roman period display a highly developed and stylized form of the doctrine in both Jewish and Christian traditions. The earliest known version of these stylized forms of the doctrine occurs ...

The Makings Of An Ep: From Silence To Portable Sounds, Emily Ream 2017 Liberty University

The Makings Of An Ep: From Silence To Portable Sounds, Emily Ream

Senior Honors Theses

The creation of an EP is a process that requires skills in multiple areas. Once, creating an EP was only available to those who garnered resources and support from a record label. However, an increasing number of aspiring musicians are writing, recording, and making their music available for download or purchase without the assistance of a record label. Doing this successfully and excellently requires application of knowledge in areas such as literature, theology (for Christian artists), music theory, music technology, and marketing. This thesis will describe one process used to turn inspiration into a tangible product that one can purchase ...


Contextualizing New Tribes Mission's Method Of Biblical Discipleship To A North American Context, Tanner N. Tripp 2017 Liberty University

Contextualizing New Tribes Mission's Method Of Biblical Discipleship To A North American Context, Tanner N. Tripp

Senior Honors Theses

One of the foremost commands of the Bible is to go out and make disciples of all nations, following the example set by Jesus Christ. Unfortunately, many Western Christians and churches either neglect this command or go about it in an unbiblical way. This thesis studies the discipleship methods of one particular mission organization, New Tribes Mission, and then contextualizes those methods to fit the contemporary North American culture. Specifically, it looks at ideas such as the becoming principle of discipleship as it pertains to pre-evangelism discipleship. Not only does this thesis study the disciple making methods of New Tribes ...

How To Attain Liberation From A False World? The Gnostic Myth Of Sophia In Dark City (1998), Fryderyk Kwiatkowski 2017 Jagiellonian University in Kraków

How To Attain Liberation From A False World? The Gnostic Myth Of Sophia In Dark City (1998), Fryderyk Kwiatkowski

Journal of Religion & Film

In the second half of the 20th century, a fascinating revival of ancient Gnostic ideas in American popular culture could be observed. One of the major streams through which Gnostic ideas are transmitted is Hollywood cinema. Many works that emerged at the end of 1990s can be viewed through the ideas of ancient Gnostic systems: The Truman Show (1998), The Thirteenth Floor (1999), The Others (2001), Vanilla Sky (2001) or The Matrix trilogy (1999-2003).

In this article, the author analyses Dark City (1998) and demonstrates that the story depicted in the film is heavily indebted to the Gnostic myth of ...

A Study On The Effect Of Church Revival And Growth Throught A Bible Academy: The Case Of Jeju Together Church In Korea, Soo Yoo 2017 Liberty University

A Study On The Effect Of Church Revival And Growth Throught A Bible Academy: The Case Of Jeju Together Church In Korea, Soo Yoo

Doctoral Dissertations and Projects

The purpose of this study is to emphasize the need for and importance of an intensive Bible study ministry in church and to suggest specific alternatives by studying the effect of church planting and revival through a Bible Academy in a Korean church. Church growth in South Korea has long since accompanied Bible study ministry. Sadly, Korean churches in the 21st century have been experiencing a slowdown and downturn in growth. Though there may be a variety of causes, the absence of a systematic and ongoing Bible study is one of them. This study is focused on providing a Bible ...
