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?

Hi Lillian,

Your referring to James as a text that reflects the Hebraic map I think is accurate. In particular, I like how you word it where you say “while we all admittedly fail….. cultivating wisdom based in a fear of God ultimately equips Hebraic leaders to pursue blind justice and peace without fear of men.”

I believe that our persistent record of failure, as human beings, is exactly why the values discussed in this lesson are so essential. The wisdom we cultivate based off of our understanding of God is exactly how we contend with a broken world. I believe that relating to God in what could be described as the Hebraic (or Abrahamic) tradition is exactly how it was that we (as imperfect beings) are intended to meet with and improve the imperfect world we live in.
