PREZI: Sacred Scripture

here is the link to the PREZI for Sacred Scripture

Tanakh versus Old Testament

Published on Aug 24, 2014 The Tanakh and the Old Testament have many similarities but they are not the same scripture. The number and arrangement of books and the inclusion of some apocryphal books is the major difference between the Jewish Tanakh and the Christian Old Testament.

On being "religious"

I think I agree with Trinity

My fav movie scenes Lord of the rings "There is some good in this world and it's worth fighting for"

Uploaded on Aug 29, 2008
....This is a scene from Lord of the rings 2nd part i.e. The two towers... The Frodo and Samwise are on the seemingly impossible task of destroying the ring...

Check out this video and comment on what you think about it. Are these manifestations of Sacred Power? Why or why not?

Which academic discipline (Phenomenology, sociology, anthropology, history or psychology) would you use to to an analysis of this group or these practices?

Watch closely the man in the suit 22 seconds into the video. Does he go up or down at first?

Have you ever experienced anything like this?

Compare what you see in this video with some of the miracles of Jesus. What is similar? What is different?

Luke 5:12-15 (pay special attention to 14 "tell no one")

Luke 8:49-56 (also notice verse 56 - "he ordered them not to tell anyone what had happened")

Matthew 9:27-31 (again, read verse 30 - "Jesus warned them sternly 'See that no one knows about this'")

Are there any ethical guidelines to how sacred power should be used? What are the dangers of sacred power?
