Listen to Him!” 6 When the disciples heard this, they fell face down to the ground, terrified. 7 But Jesus came and touched them. He said, “Get up. Don’t be afraid.” 8 When they looked up they saw no one except Jesus. 9 As they were coming down the mountain, Jesus instructed them, “Do not tell anyone what you have seen, until the Son of Man has been raised from the dead.” 10 The disciples asked Him, “Why then do the teachers of the law say that Elijah must come first?” 11 Jesus replied, “To be sure, Elijah comes and will restore all things.
And the pig, though it has a split hoof completely divided, does not chew the cud; it is unclean for you. You must not eat their meat or touch their carcasses, they are unclean for you. These were some of the food laws handed down from God to Moses and had to be given to the Israelites: This was to instil obedience in the Jews: following Gods rules with total obedience would save the Jew from disaster and would make them believe in the one true God; as, at the time of Terah, who was Abraham’s father, there were Gods for different things which in turn is idolatry and in the book of Joshua 24:2, Joshua tells the people this: plus God is a jealous God, but not
His favor was sadly lost through the shifting of powers. Wicked men trapped Daniel by convincing the king to issue a decree that no one can worship any god other than the king’s god. Daniel refused to worship any other god but the one true God, and stayed unfazed by the decree. He continues to worship his God and is turned in. The punishment is a night in the Lion’s den.
Explain the contribution of Paul of Tarsus in the development and expression of Christianity and analyse the impact of Paul on Christianity. Paul’s original name was Saul, who took the familiar name of Paul after his conversion to Christianity. Saul was born around 10 C.E in Tarsus, modern-day Turkey.

As we know in the bible, the Lord has never revealed himself to anyone until the book of Exodus. The Lord appears to Moses in a burning bush introducing himself as “I am who am” Ex 3:14). This is translated into “Yahweh”. The Lord made Moses his messenger, so that he can get his word out to the Israelites. Moses wasn’t really educated and did not know how to speak well and could not communicate with the community well.

Rastafari is an Abrahamic religious movement that accepts Haile Selassie I, the Ethiopian emperor as God incarnate and the Messiah who will deliver believers to the Promised Land, which to them is Ethiopia. The root of the religion dates back to the 1930’s under the influence of Leonard Howell and Marcus Garvey. Rastafarian holds many Jewish and Christian beliefs sacred. They accept the existence of a single triune god, called Jah, who has incarnated on earth several times, including in the form of Jesus. They accepted the Bible, although they believe that it was corrupted in favor of the “White man”.

Oreo was also already buried. I didn’t get to say goodbye. I didn’t get to actually see what death was, or to hold him or pet him one more time. I remember I would go outside and sit by his little grave and my dad would come out and tell me to go play, almost like he was telling me to ‘get over it’. The strangest part of all of that is this: before the death of Oreo, I don’t remember the guinea pig at all!
The belief was that Nian would eat the food they prepared, and would not dine on any of the villagers once he completed the food. One day, the villagers saw that Nian was frightened of a child wearing the color red. From this, they concluded that the beast was terrified of the color red and would hand red lanterns and scrolls on windows and doors when the New Year approached. Along with these, they would also use firecrackers to ward Nian off. As a result, Nian never returned, but was captured by a Taoist monk and became his mount.
