Project #70355 - Theology paper

  1. (30% of the exam)  We have seen repeatedly over the course of the semester that the full significance of narrative material in the gospels would escape readers who have no knowledge of the Hebrew Bible (Old Testament scriptures). Choose ONE of the following options and write an essay in which you explain how grasping its full significance depends upon readers’ familiarity with the older scriptures:   
    1. The account of the angel Gabriel’s annunciation to Mary in Luke 1:26-38
    2. Matthew’s account of “the flight to Egypt” and the subsequent “slaughter of the innocents” in Matthew 2:13-18.
    3. Jesus’ encounter with a woman at Jacob’s well in John 4

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

  1. (30% of the exam) Choose ONE of the following miracle stories from the gospels and write a brief essay in which you explain how the first readers of the gospel in which it appears could understand the account not only as a story of things Jesus once did in the past, but also as a description of what the risen Christ and those who believe in him continue to experience or accomplish in their own day.

a.     Mark 5:1-20

b.     Matthew 15:21-39

c.     John 9:1-41

 

 

 

 

 

 

  1. (40% of the exam) The painting below is the work of Lucas Cranach the Elder, a 16th century artist who allied himself with Martin Luther and the “Reformation” movement in Germany. Examine the painting carefully, and then write an essay in which you explain how this artist, like the writers of the four gospels, worked to tell the story of Jesus so that it

a) proclaimed the salvific meaning of the crucifixion event;              

b) connects the story of Jesus to the ancient faith of Israel;  and 

c)  spoke to a particular audience and made the members of that audience a part of the story.

Additionally, try to answer the following questions:

1) Does it seem that one the four New Testament gospels is most influential in this depiction?  If so, which one, and what details lead to your assessment?  

2) Is this depiction of Jesus’ death truthful in the same way the canonical gospels are truthful?

 

Write about 3.5 pages. one page for  first couple questions. the last question could use a page and a half. 

DO NOT USE ONLINE SOURCES. only pure thoughts.
