In the letter, King alludes to many voices of the past in order to gain the support of his audience. King uses examples such as, the Apostle Paul, Nelson Mandela, and Adolf Hitler, to explain and justify his presence in Birmingham jail. The first allusion King refers to is the Apostle Paul, and his Macedonian call. According to the Bible, Paul was called upon by God in a vision to preach the gospel to the people in Macedonia. “After Paul had seen the vision, [he] got ready at once to leave for Macedonia, concluding that God had called [him] to preach the gospel to them” (New International Version, Acts 16.10).
However, in his headquarters in the city of Capernaum there is more that happens previous to this account in the ministry of the Savior. This passage has a couple of climaxes. The second, amazing act in which Jesus chooses to heal this man by speaking the words, “Son, thy sins be forgiven thee.” This paper will attempt to generalize as much information from this account in the ministry of Christ, and its theme of proving that Jesus, the Son of God, has the same power and authority to forgive sins, as only is Father has. Translation The King James Version (KJV) of the passage reads as follows: 1And again he entered into Capernaum after some days; and it was noised that he was in the house. 2And straightway many were gathered together, insomuch that there was no room to receive them, no, not so much as about the door: and he preached the word unto them.
Romans and Christian Worldview Bible 425-B05 3/1/2015 Because of Paul, the book of Romans teaches us about so many aspects of the Christian life. Paul’s letter was not meant to be a systematic theology, but rather a letter presentation of the Gospel. The book of Romans covers a wide variety of topics that are essential for followers of Christ to live by. The topics creation, sin, salvation, eschatology, ethics, and theology are the key points found in Paul’s letter, and understanding each is key to the growth of every believer’s relationship with God. CREATION On the first topic, creation, Paul teaches in Romans 1:19-20 that the world was spoken into existence by God.
Christianity is under attack not only by those within Christianity, but also by those in cults and other faiths. C.S. Lewis, who was one of the best-known apologists of the 20th century, said, To be ignorant and simple now--not to be able to meet the enemies on their ground--would be to throw down our weapons, and to betray our uneducated brethren who have, under God, no defense but us against the intellectual attacks of the heathen. Good philosophy must exist, if for no other reason, because bad philosophy needs to be answered (The Weight of Glory, 50). 2 EXPERIENTIAL APOLOGETICS One form of apologetics is called “Experiential Apologetics”.
In 1Corinthians 15:7 it is said that the resurrected Jesus appeared personally with James, this is probably why James had the sudden change of heart. The book of James is an epistle (a long formal letter) written to everyone within the twelve tribes of Judah. The epistle tells the people of these tribes a number of messages. One message that is delivered through the epistle is that faith alone is not enough; it says that faith has to be accompanied by works. This is in direct contradiction with the works of Paul.
