Reply To: Analyze one of the supplementary Bible passages in light of the course content. Do you see evidence of the Hebraic map? Did anything about the passage surprise you? Was there any part of the passage that stuck out to you in particular?
Thank you for sharing your thoughts. What you said reminded me of the course’s emphasis on the duality of mankind and our great capacity for good and evil. In the midst of the chaos that may engulf us in this world a Christian is still called to practice basic duties toward family, community, and God. That truly is such a radical response contrary to modernist tendencies to maximize one’s individual good at any cost. Even in exile we are called to plant seeds and tender the garden that we must leave one day for the glory of our true end.
