Remember My Chains: New Testament Perspectives On Incarceration, Matthew L. Skinner 2018 Luther Seminary

Remember My Chains: New Testament Perspectives On Incarceration, Matthew L. Skinner

Faculty Publications

Understanding the physical realities and social attitudes concerning incarceration in the ancient world provides a fuller context to the New Testament’s unadorned and ambiguous references to people’s experience of being held in custody. The context is crucial for interpreting biblical passages that commend caring for prisoners, that reaffirm God’s strength and nullify the ignominy associated with incarceration, and that declare God’s power over the means and motives of imperial coercion. Such passages also compel the contemporary church to advocate on behalf of prisoners and to denounce the systems that regularly victimize them.

Assur Is King Of Persia: Illustrations Of The Book Of Esther In Some Nineteenth-Century Sources, Steven W. Holloway 2018 James Madison University

Assur Is King Of Persia: Illustrations Of The Book Of Esther In Some Nineteenth-Century Sources, Steven W. Holloway

Steven W Holloway

The marriage of archaeological referencing and picture Bibles in the nineteenth century resulted in an astonishing variety of guises worn by the court of Ahasuerus in Esther. Following the exhibition of Neo-Assyrian sculpture in the British Museum and the wide circulation of such images in various John Murray publications, British illustrators like Henry Anelay defaulted to Assyrian models for kings and rulers in the Old Testament, including the principal actors in Esther, even though authentic Achaemenid Persian art had been available for illustrative pastiche for decades. This curious adoptive choice echoed British national pride in its splendid British Museum collection ...

The Man Behind The Curtain:The Shape Of Markan Christology, Scott Curran 2018 Liberty University

The Man Behind The Curtain:The Shape Of Markan Christology, Scott Curran

Diligence: Journal of the Liberty University Online Religion Capstone in Research and Scholarship

For decades the debate about the historical Jesus created many branches of biblical studies and Theology. One specific branch is called “Christology,” which can loosely be defined as the study of Jesus. Who was Jesus? Who did Jesus think he was? Was he divine? Was he a prophet? All of these questions – and hundreds more – can fall under the category of Christology. This study is focused more specifically on The Gospel According to Mark’s Christology. Many studies on Mark’s Gospel and his Christology do it in a systematic way, but as many readers will quickly find when reading ...


The Extent Of God’S Love As Based On The Greek Word Kosmos In The Johannine Corpus, Kevin D. Crammer 2018 Liberty University Online

The Extent Of God’S Love As Based On The Greek Word Kosmos In The Johannine Corpus, Kevin D. Crammer

Diligence: Journal of the Liberty University Online Religion Capstone in Research and Scholarship

The extent of God’s love is a distorted concept. As the misguided world seeks to maximize God’s love apart from his holiness, some theological circles seek to minimize it in light of his sovereignty. Addressing one side of the issue, this paper examines the apostle John’s body of work and attempts to restore a proper balance. The purpose of this research is to define the extent of God’s love as represented in the Johannine corpus. It surveys and assesses the semantic range of the Greek word kosmos by evaluating the relevant texts. Through exploration of John ...
