"Jesus Christ Superstar", Movie Review Separted In 5 Parts

1087 words - 5 pages 1.The interpretation of Jesus in the movie is more or less of what he is shown as in the Bible: he was a good man whose mission was to preach the good word of God and to die in order to save the people of mankind. However I felt that there was one major difference in the interpretations of Jesus' personality. Jesus was portrayed in the movie as a person with more human feelings and reactions. In the movie, he expressed more anger to the people and frustration with God than what was shown in the bible. "But you have made it into a house of thieves! Get out! Get out!!...Heal yourselves!" (The Temple) I almost fully agree with the interpretation of who Jesus was in the movie, except for the VIEW DOCUMENT

Salvation, by Langston Hughes Essay

490 words - 2 pages SalvationLangston Hughes After reading the excerpt from Langston Hughes's autobiography, "Salvation", I pondered the many factors of religion and what makes a person believe in god or not believe in god. I believe that religion is a form of individual expression, and that each person should have the freedom to conform his or her identity to whatever religion feels right to that person, or even to conform to no religion at all. I think that if I had been in Langston's position sitting on a mourner's bench in his Auntie's church waiting for Jesus to save me, I probably would have lied and said that Jesus had saved me. I would have done this mainly to forgo any further complications or VIEW DOCUMENT

Religious Education: Coursework Essay On Discipleship

4151 words - 17 pages First DisciplesDiscipleship is usually thought of as following Jesus, being a preacher, teacher. Somebody who believes in something, or who believes in someone, and leaves everything behind them to try to make others believe the same is my personal definition of a disciple. In actual fact, the Old Testament word 'Talmid' is a 'learner', and more obviously in the New Testament, a 'Diskipolos' is a 'follower'. The other crucial area of discipleship is serving others. When a disciple is healing a person, he is serving them, as he serving Jesus and God. So discipleship can be summed up; to follow, to learn, to preach, to believe, to serve. All factors are crucial to be a true disciple. But to VIEW DOCUMENT
