Semester Final Project #1| Bible 10 | June 4, 2018

This is an essay. It should be written as an essay, not simply as bullet point answers to the questions.

Please do not copy from anyone else in the class. If there is copying, points will be lost from your grade and from the grade of the person you copy.

What did you learn about Jesus from your study this semester?

Be complete and specific with details and examples when that helps you to answer this question.

         Who was/is he? Consider this from the point of view of the Gospel of Matthew. Give examples and refer to verses in the Gospel of Matthew.

         What did you learn about him that is evidence for who he is/was? Rational Faith Slides

         What did you learn about Jesus from his conversation with the woman of Sidon and with his disciples in Matthew 15:21-28. What was important to him? What lesson did he wish his disciples to learn? See http://drcpublishing.net/Matt15Review.docx and then read Chapter 15 from the book Messiah LINK .

         What did you learn about Jesus in Matthew 21? What was his purpose in life as revealed here? (Refer to particular things he said and did.) Read chapter 21 from the book Messiah LINK

         What does his resurrection tell you about who Jesus is/was? Read chapter 28 from the book Messiah LINK

         Since this Gospel was written particularly for Jews, what does the writer include that would make Jews stop and think? (This is a question that has several different answers.)

Use the resources on the class website and the study guides you completed for this chapter in answering this question. Read the chapters out of the book Messiah and refer to the ideas you find there. That book is available on the class website. A complete answer will use these sources as you would sources for a research paper. BUT do not simply agree with me or the authors of your sources. Do your own thinking. That is the point of inductive Bible study.

How much is enough for this answer? I would expect that you would need to write 3 pages typed and double spaced to answer well.

Submit your paper by email or through Google Docs. Be sure that you receive a reply from me before you assume your paper was received.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Semester Final Project | Bible 10 | June 4, 2018

1.       What did you learn about the process of inductive Bible study? (We studied how to do inductive Bile study as it relates to different genres of literature including narrative, parables, and teaching. Your answer should refer to the special skills required for each.)

         Use those skills to explain the little narrative in Matthew 20:20-28. (Remember the three step process you use in inductive Bible study and be sure to complete the final step.)

         Now explain how the little story in Matthew 20:29-31 connects to this teaching about leadership.

Use the resources on the class website and the study guides you completed for this chapter in answering this question.

How much is enough for this answer? I would expect that you would need to write 1-2 pages typed and double spaced to answer well.
