In Koran, while the woman was trying to seduce Joseph, he mentioned about God. He said “God forbid!” He used God to reject her and then used her husband. However, in Bible, Joseph used her husband as an excuse first and then God.

Furthermore, Islam should fear of God so that Joseph in Koran would mention God at first to warn master’s wife.
Valerie Cai Mrs. Alden IB Literature SL 2014-12-9 Discuss how the disconnect between religion and cultural beliefs is illustrated in The Chronicle of a Death Foretold and how it helps convey Marquez’s message. Latin American Social Customs and Religion In Gabriel Garcia Marquez’s dark masterpiece The Chronicle of a Death Foretold, a series of events, beginning with a wealthy foreigner returning his damaged bride, leads to the death of the innocent Santiago Nasar. Thirty years later, a man returns to this forsaken town in order to reinvestigate Nasar’s baffling death, and through his narration, Marquez reveals the root of many societal problems in this Latin American town—their belief system. The disconnect between Catholicism and local cultural values is illustrated in the characterization of the bishop and Father Amador, the use of Nasar as a parody of Christ, and in their clashing guidelines on sex, materialism, and the class system. Ultimately, these stylistic and contextual choices were made by Marquez in order to convey his message that the ingrained cultural grievances of characters in the novel overwhelm any virtuous behavior supported by their Catholic beliefs, which culminates in societal unrest.

Death and Dying Well According to Buddhaghosa and Montaigne “To begin depriving death of its greatest advantage over us, let us adopt a way clean contrary to that common one. Let us deprive death of its strangeness, let us frequent it, let us get used to it, let us have nothing more often in mind than death...we do not know where death awaits us so let us wait for it everywhere. To practice death is to practice freedom...a man who has learned how to die has unlearned how to be a slave”(Montaigne). In his insightful essay, Montaigne expounded on the results of his philosophical inquiries about death. According to Montaigne, the purpose of living is to prepare oneself for the final act of dying, where one is freed from the outward appearances that he projects, and, in turn, will reveal his true self.
This movie was directed by Mel Gibson and was filmed in Catemaco and Mexico (“Apocalypto”). Mel Gibson also happened to turn down a role so that he could direct this movie (Apocalypto).
