This story is a representation of how religion in Britain was changing from pagan to Christian. In the beginning of the poem it tells the readers that Grendel “would have killed more, had not the mindful God and one man’s daring prevented that doom.”(72) Anyone who is a Christian understands that God does not need any help making decisions.

These codes were both said to be sent down by God, but later changed in order to satisfy the needs and wants of the civilians. The Hammurabic law states that "if any one ensnare another, putting a ban upon him, but he cannot prove it, then he that ensnared him shall be put to death. "(Hammurabi 1) Comparably, in the Mosaic Law, it states that "if a malicious witness takes the stand to accuse a man of a crime, the two men involved in the dispute must stand in the presence of the Lord before the priests and the judges who are in office at the time. The judges must make a thorough investigation, and if the witness proves to be a liar, giving false testimony against his brother, then do to him as he intended to do to his brother.
Abigail and the girls continue to forge visions of the devil. They then accuse John of conceding with the devil. John is arrested. The court grants John freedom if he signs and admits to dealing with the devil. John signs the confession but refuses to tarnish his reputation; “Because it is my name...
