Please write a good solid paragraph where you comment on any
of the following topics, raise any questions that come to mind: what do you
know about this week's topic already? what interests you about this topic? what
more would you like to learn about it? When you are done, post your comments
in the "Starting Assumptions" section of this week's Blackboard
Discussion Board. Please make sure that you do this by
Tuesday midnight; it is up to you whether you want to do this before
or after the Background assignment (either way is fine).
Note: you do not have to answer all these questions; just
pick the ones that are the most relevant to what's on your mind.
- now that you have had two weeks (!) reading Jerome's Vulgate, what are your
thoughts now about Vulgate style? did you find Samson easier to read than
Moses? about the same? harder? have you figured out any reading techniques
that are especially helpful in getting you through the reading?
Parables and Crucifixion of Jesus
- how familiar are you with the parables that Jesus tells in the New Testament?
if you do know the parables, what would be the first three or four that come
to mind? do you have some favorite parables?
- do you already know the parable of the Good Samaritan? do you know how the
Samaritans were? (find out now if
you are curious)
- how familiar are you with the narrative of the life of Jesus? when you think
of the crucifixion of Jesus, what are the elements of the story that first
come to mind?
- at the bottom of the page you will find some images from
this week's unit; if any of these images make a big impression on you, you
can share your thoughts about the image and what it suggests to you
