Book Summary

...Beginning chapter one with citing one of the ten commandments, “Thou shall not steal,” Wayne Grudem sets the stage of what is about to come; a black and white analysis on how having business success does not necessarily make you fall short of being a “good” Christian. As a well-known, very credible Christian theologist, one may wonder why Grudem would venture out to right a book solely about business. “Business for the Glory of God,” looks at business ownership, profitability, money, competition, and borrowing and lending, just to name a few topics. This essay will take a look at a few of the controversial topics, and share insight of why they may or may not be feasible arguments for why business is, “a gift from God.” When Grudem speaks of the commandment that states, “Thou shall not steal,” he uses this as evidence that by stealing, one must have their own possessions, and if we did not have possessions, this commandment would make no sense. This is a reasonable assumption, therefore it can be a good way to begin discussing how ownership is not so bad; on the contrary, if Grudem is unable to offer clear, factual information, his credibility may waiver. Chapter one continues with Grudem’s discussion of how ownership is not synonymic for greed, and if one is selfless and realizes that God is the real business owner, he has not sinned. The points that Grudem makes are quite valid, and are very simple, and to the point; the issue with this, is that these may seem......

Summary of the Books of the Old Testament

...BIBL 104 Summary of the books of the Old Testament Genesis Genesis is a historical narrative with the material organized a specific way for a specific purpose. The Book of Genesis can be divided into two sections: Primitive History and Patriarchal History. The first eleven chapters of Genesis tell an authoritative story about the beginnings of the world by opening with the story of creation. God created the universe and humanity. The Patriarchal history begins with Adam and Eve. Adam and Eve sinned and thereby banished from the Garden of Eden. God sent the Flood to wipe out evil, but delivered Noah and his family along with the animals in the Ark. After the Flood, humanity began again. God chose Abraham to create a chosen people and eventually the Messiah. The chosen line was passed on to Abraham's son Isaac, and then to Isaac's son Jacob. God changed Jacob's name to Israel, and his twelve sons became the ancestors of the twelve tribes of Israel. God had Jacob's son Joseph sent to Egypt by the shameful actions of Joseph's brothers. Eventually things ends up with Jacob and his family being saved from a famine by Joseph, who had risen to a powerful position in Egypt. Exodus The Basic Genre’s of the Book of Exodus are historical and of the law. It is historical because it gives the reader, an account of the birth of Moses, who his adoptive parents were, his early adulthood, and how he leads the Israelites out to bondage. It is of the law, because it gives details......

Luke is not only a physician, but also a historian that wrote concerning the perfect humanity of Jesus Christ. Throughout Luke’s gospel the humanity and compassion of Jesus is portrayed in His mission of seeking and saving the lost. In the introduction, Luke emphasized how the beginnings of Christ and John the Baptist intertwined. Jesus prepared for His ministry for over thirty years, which is summarized in one verse (2:52). After being baptized by John the Baptist and tempted by Satan, Jesus began His ministry that lasted only three years. In Jesus’ ministry, authority was shown over every realm, including demons, disease, nature, effects of sin, and traditions. With the growing number of ones that believed, there were also those that rejected the gospel. Jesus taught His disciples on a number of practical matters by parables, including the Lost Sheep, Lost Coin, and Lost Son. After the crucifixion and resurrection, Jesus appeared to His disciples before He ascended to heaven. II. John The genre in the book of John is gospel.

Summary of New Books

...A Summary of Christine Smallwood’s “New Books” Christine Smallwood, author of “New Books” published in Harper’s Magazine in 2014 begins the article by giving the reader the complete details of a wrestling and boxing match with a man named Arrichion. Arrichion started his career in boxing and wrestling in the time of 564 B.C... He won only two titles in his career, one in 572 B.C. and the other in 568 B.C. Arrichion’s last match occurred when he was in a chokehold and refused to tap out, eventually breaking out of it and dislocating his opponents’ ankle. Unfortunately after winning the match, Arrichion, injured himself by “breaking his own neck” (73) causing his own death. According to Smallwood’s article, the Greek motto, “Victory or Death” (73) takes on a new connotation; “Victory in Death” (73) thus implying 2500 years later, professional football players today are more likely to suffer from some type of brain trauma due to their desire to win championships like that of Arrichion. Who knew that the life expectancy of a professional football player was only the age of fifty-five? Several professional football players have committed suicide due to repeated concussions while playing their sport. According to the article by Smallwood, the issue has become so pervasive, Dave Duerson, a former safety in the NFL, “shot himself in the heart in 2011, he left a note asking that his brain be sent to Boston University” (73). Smallwood points out that according to......

Summary of Book of Job

...JOB (Job 1: 1-5, 13-22) The Book Of Job I. Background of the story The story is derived from one of the books of Hebrew Bible, the Book of Job. It relates the story of Job, who was not Jewish, and in Jewish tradition is the son of Utz, who was the son of Nahor, the brother of Abraham. It tells of his trials at the hands of God, his theological discussions with friends on the origins and nature of his suffering, his challenge to God, and finally a response from God. The Book itself comprises a didactic poem set in a prose frame and has been called “the most profound and literary work of the entire Old Testament”. The Book itself and its numerous exegeses are attempts to address the problem of evil. II. Summary There was a man named Job, living in the land of Uz, who worshipped God and was faithful to him. He was a good man, careful not to do anything evil. He had seven sons and three daughters, and owned seven thousand sheep, three thousand camels, one thousand head of cattle, and five hundred donkeys. He also had a large number of servants and was the richest man in the East. Job’s sons used to take turns giving a feast, to which all the others would come, and they always invited their three sisters to join them. The morning after each feast, Job would get up early and offer sacrifices for each of his children in order to purify them. He always did this because he thought that one of them might have sinned by insulting God unintentionally. All of a sudden......

Summary of New Testament Books

...Summary of the books of the New Testament Mark Mark is the first written gospel of the New Testament. Mark is not an apostle, nor is he one of the disciples. It is traditionally thought that Mark is a disciple of Peter. It is unclear as to where Mark was when he wrote this gospel. The gospel of Mark appears to set the stage or pattern for the other written gospels as it may have been used as a source in the composition of Matthew and Luke. Mark uses narrative form to tell the story of Jesus’ life, beginning with His early career continuing until His death. Mark uses stories about Jesus’ teachings, travels, and miraculous works to aid the understanding of His intentions. Mark focuses on the death of Jesus and all the events that led up to the crucifixion. Thus, it is the death of Jesus that is the guiding principle of this gospel, not the life. Many important facts are presented Mark. First, Jesus Christ is the Messiah as stated throughout the Old Testament. Second, Jesus lived a sinless and perfect life, proving He was the Son of God as he claimed. Third, the Gospel tells of His numerous miracle-performing capabilities. Most importantly, Jesus overcame death through His resurrection. In this miraculous event, He proves that there is no power that can conquer Him. The gospel of Mark gives perfect instructions on how God’s people should live; having faith (Mark 2:5), believing in the power of God (Mark 5:36), replacing fear with trust (Mark 4:40),......

Book Summary of New Testament

...Bible Book Summaries of the New Testament The Book of Philippians The book of Philippians is one of the four shorter epistles written by the apostle Paul while he was in prison. Throughout Paul’s life the Philippians held a special place in his heart. He wrote to them with affection, and the epistle breathes a note of joy throughout. When Paul first came to Philippi, he was thrown in jail. The location of his imprisonment has been long debated. In the deep of the night, bound and beaten, he sang a hymn to God. A decade later Paul was again in prison, and he still was celebrating the Christian’s joy in the midst of suffering, “Rejoice in the Lord always. Again I will say, rejoice!” (Phil. 4:4). Paul begins the epistle by giving thanks for the love of the Philippians and by praying for its increase. Even though Paul is in prison, the gospel is not confined; on the contrary, it is increasing. Whether Paul lives or dies, “Christ is preached” and this results in salvation. Following these reflections, Paul introduces a series of exhortations: to remain faithful in suffering; to remain considerate of others, as Jesus Christ was and to avoid evil and live blamelessly. The final chapter of Philippians summarizes several miscellaneous matters. Paul exhorts quarrelsome church members to rise above their differences. He also leaves two important lessons, on substituting thankful prayer for anxiety and on the characteristics of a noble and godly life....

...BIBL104 27 NOV 11 Summary of the books of the Old Testament Books Matthew The book of Matthew genre is gospel. The gospel of Matthew bridges the old and new testaments to the prophecy, that Jesus is the messiah. Matthew used more quotes of the Old Testament than all other gospels combined, thus indicating that it was written to a Jewish audience to convince them that Jesus is the savior. Matthew started his gospel by tracing Jesus back forty-two generations from Joseph and Mary to Abraham. Matthew becomes one of the twelve disciples and along with the other eleven they learn about Jesus’s death was coming near. They were also taught what to expect and how to live before Jesus returns. This gospel highlights the Sermon on the Mount, summarizing the ethical standards Jesus established to those that belong to the kingdom of God. The final chapters cover the detail of the last supper, Peter’s denial of knowing Jesus, Jesus’s last words on the cross, and the resurrection of Jesus. LUKE The book of Luke is a genre of gospel.

How Jesus came to know John the Baptist and was baptized before gathering his twelve disciples.......
