Religion Task One and Two

 

Section A 

Summary: It is just like what path you want to take when you are older the good one or the bad one

Luke 10:38-42      

 Who sat at the Lord’s feet and listened to what he was saying.  Mary sat listening to the lord while Martha (mary’s sister) did work.  Martha wanted mary’s help to do the jobs but she was listening to Jesus.  Martha asked Jesus for his help to tell Mary to help her do her work but Jesus tells her that Mary chose the best choice, to listen to Jesus.

 Mary was listening to Jesus but Martha was too distracted to listen. Martha wanted God to fix her problems but Mary would sit and listen to God rather than help Martha. 

Mary chose to listen and learn to Jesus rather than Martha was distracted and did not want to listen to Jesus.

 

Mary listened to Jesus to what he had to say rather than help Martha.  I think Mary is going to do nothing to help and listen to God.

 

Summary: John 11:5-6   Lazarus grows ill and Jesus stays with him for 2 days while Mary and Martha leave. 

 

 Jesus loved them all and felt the need to stay longer for Lazarus because he was sick.

 

Jesus loved all three of them and felt the need to stay with Lazarus because he was very ill and the other two were not so he left them to stay with him.  He stayed two days longer so he was there for Lazarus.

 

Jesus’s attitude towards Martha, May, and Lazarus is that he loved them all and he even stayed two days because he was ill and didn’t want him to be alone.

Jesus loved Martha, Mary, and Lazarus and when he found out that Lazarus was ill he stayed for 2 days because he didn’t want to be left alone. / 

 

Summary- John 11:20-22 

 

Martha went to see Jesus and Mary stayed home.  Martha was then upset with Jesus because Lazarus had died.

 

 Martha blames God for Lazarus dying. I don’t think that Martha has a good relationship with God or she wouldn’t blame him. 

 

Martha’s faith is not based on logic was based on just her opinion, it would not make sense if someone is not there and someone dies that the person who is not there it’s their fault.

 

Martha’s faith was based on that she had lost trust in God and she blames him for letting Lazarus for dying.  I think she had a good relationship with him until he died and then now she doesn’t have a good relationship because of blaming him for letting Lazarus die.

 

Martha’s faith in the lord is based on her relationship with Jesus because she believes that if   was with her brother he wouldn’t have died and she had faith that if he stayed he wouldn’t have died.  Lazarus dies and Martha believes if Jesus stayed he would still be alive. Summary: It is just like what path you want to take when you are older the good one or the bad one

.Luke 10:38-42      

 Mary, who sat at the Lord’s feet and listened to what he was saying.  Mary sat listening to the lord while Martha (mary’s sister) did work. Martha wanted mary’s help to do the jobs but she was listening to Jesus.  Martha asked Jesus for his help to tell Mary to help her do her work but Jesus tells her that Mary chose the best choice, to listen to Jesus.

Mary was listening to Jesus but Martha was too distracted to listen. Martha wanted God to fix her problems but Mary would sit and listen to God rather than help Martha. 

Mary chose to listen and learn to Jesus rather than Martha was distracted and did not want to listen to Jesus.

Mary listened to Jesus to what he had to say rather than help Martha.  I think Mary is going to do nothing to help and listen to God.

 

Section B

Exodus 4:10-17

Moses told the Lord to pardon his servants because he has never been eloquent not in the past or since he spoke to them. The Lord said back that he is slow of speech and tough and because Moses complained that he could not speak well, God appointed Aaron as Moses’ “prophet”. At the command of Moses, he took his staff. Then he stretched out his rod to bring on the first three signs.

 

It says that Moses isn’t the best and equal to everyone else. And he wants Jesus to speak to everyone doesn’t matter what’s wrong with them. And that will make his heart happy. 

 

What is Aaron’s role?

Aaron’s role was to speak for Moses from Jesus.

Acts 8:26-38

 

 

 The angel told Philip to go south to the road that leads from Jerusalem to Gaza. There he would worship Candace, queen of the Ethiopians. Philip is taken by the Holy Spirit to meet a highly placed Ethiopian court official who is reading Isaiah on the way home from Jerusalem. The Ethiopian asks for and receives baptism as a believer in Jesus as God’s Messiah, promised by Isaiah.-Reyne

It’s about he said to go to the road south of Jerusalem go to court official of the cadence queen of the Ethiopians. He came to Jerusalem to worship and return home he was reading the prophet, Isaiah. He had Philip help him understand the bible. And taught him the good news about Jesus. They found water and said what is to stop him from getting baptized and they stopped and Philip baptized him.

 

 

Who are the two people in this story?

Philip and Eunuch

Why does one of them choose to be baptized?.-Madison

As they were going along the road, they came to some water; and the eunuch said, ‘Look, here is water! What is to prevent me from being baptized!“He commanded the chariot to stop,” and both of them, Philip and the eunuch, went down into the water, and Philip baptized him.

 

 

Section C

 

1 Samuel 16:23- His music is helping to heal the soul of the people and ward the evil through the joint passion of music. He also helped him to see that music can connect people. 

 

Who calms Saul and how?

David calms Saul by playing the Lyre

2 Chronicles 5:11-14- Priests and musicians gathered to share in the art of music to show their faith in alternative means

They all gather in song and prayer together to show the lord their devotion and faith

 

Section D

John 1: 3-9- This verse explains how God sent John down to spread his message and bring light to the world. John uses his spatial intelligence to bring light to a world of darkness.

Mark 13:24-27- This passage is about The Son of Man and about what will happen when he comes.

Ezekiel 1:4-28 – The passage talks about the glory of God. It tells about creatures, gleaming of beryl, tall and awesome, shining like crystal and a sound of the tumult which is a loud loud sound. It talks about splendor all around. It almost sounds unbelievable but when they saw this appearance it was the Lord they fell on their knees in awe and listened to God’s voice

Section E

Exodus 18:13-27

What is Moses’s problem?

  • Moses can’t inquire people about God by himself, he needs help from other people.

Who helps him solve it in a logical step by step way?

  • Moses’s father-in-law helps him. 

 

People came to Moses to inquire about God. When they have a dispute, they come to me and I decide between one person or another and I make known to them the statutes and instructions of God. His father-in-law helped him.

 

John 11:16

Who has a very matter-of-fact attitude?

  • Thomas

What does he say?

  • Let us also go, that we may die with him 

 

John 20:24-29Thomas doesn’t believe that Jesus was crucified so he needs proof to believe that it’s true

 

Section F 

Luke 5:4-11

When does Peter first begin to understand Jesus? 

Answer: Peter started to understand Jesus when Simon and Peter pulled the nets full of fish into the boat and the boat started sinking.  Peter fell to his knees, saying that Jesus shouldn’t help him because he had sinned. Jesus said to Peter that he was forgiven and that He can teach them about His forgiveness. 

Summary: The reading is taken from the well-known story of    

Matthew 14:24-33 

What does Peter do when he sees Jesus? 

Jesus appeared to the disciples and said, “Take heart, it is I, do not be afraid”  Peter then answered Jesus and said, “Lord, if it is you, command me to come to you on the water”. Peter did not react the same way as the other disciples that saw and feared Jesus.  Instead, Peter answered Jesus’ question and said, “Lord, if it is you, command me to come to you on the water.” Jesus then said, “Come.” As Peter got out of the boat, he then started walking on the water and came towards Jesus. While Peter was walking towards Jesus, Peter noticed a strong wind, and began to sink he then cried out to Jesus, “Lord save me!” Jesus then immediately reached out his hand and caught him. Jesus then said “You of little faith, why did you doubt?”. When Peter sees Jesus he answers and follows him out onto the water. 

Matthew 17:1-8 

What does Peter suggest in this passage? 

Peter suggests that these mountains are a great place to be, so he says he can make three dwellings for Jesus, Moses, and Elijah.  Peter suggests that these mountains are a great place because the sun lights up Jesus’ face like lanterns, and Jesus talks to them shortly after his clothes became dazzling white.

John 13:3-10

What does Jesus do?  How does Peter respond?

This passage is from the time around Jesus’ Passion.  Holy Thursday; when Jesus and His disciples are having the Last Supper in the upper room.  Jesus presents himself to his disciples as a servant and washes their feet in a basin. When Jesus offers to clean him, Peter responds in a stubborn manner, stating that unless Peter washes Jesus’ feet, Jesus can have no share with him.  Simon Peter continues to say that if Jesus is to clean His disciples, He should not only wash his feet but also his hands and his head.

Based on these passages, which of the intelligence does Peter often use to understand and respond to Jesus?

Based on these passages, I can infer that Peter responds to Jesus with interpersonal intelligence.  Interpersonal intelligence is knowledge derived from social interaction with other people. In the first passage, Peter displays great humility, but Jesus forgave Peter and offered to teach Peter of his great forgiveness.  This tells us that Peter knows Jesus would have some form of response to his actions, thus further confirming his knowledge of interpersonal intelligence. Passage two further develops Peter’s responses to Jesus. We read of Peter’s response to Jesus’ pleas for him to come out onto the water with him.  Peter comes as Jesus commands him. In passage three, Peter recognizes the presence of others and offers to make dwellings for them. Passage four shows another act of Peter’s humility, telling Jesus that his feet, hands, and head all need to be washed to really be clean.

 

 

Section G

 

Romans 7:14-23 

The Inner Conflict

For we know that the law is spiritual; but I am of the flesh, sold into slavery under sin. I do not understand my own actions. For I do not do what I want, but I do the very thing I hate. Now if I do what I do not want, I agree that the law is good. But in fact, it is no longer I that do it, but sin that dwells within me. For I know that nothing good dwells within me, that is, in my flesh. I can will what is right, but I cannot do it. I do not do the good I want, but the evil I do not want is what I do. Now if I do what I do not want, it is no longer I that do it, but sin that dwells within me.

So I find it to be a law that when I want to do what is good, evil lies close at hand. For I delight in the law of God in my innermost self, but I see in my members another law at war with the law of my mind, making me captive to the law of sin that dwells in my members.

 

Who does Paul talk about as he tries to explain law and grace?

Paul speaks of sin and how it makes him make the wrong choices and do what he does not want to do. Paul is talking about himself and how he is sinning.

The passage talks about how Paul is admitting that he has sinned and that he does not do what he wants to do but what he hates.

 

1 Corinthians 2:1-5 

Proclaiming Christ Crucified

When I came to you, brothers and sisters, I did not come proclaiming the mystery of God to you in lofty words or wisdom. For I decided to know nothing among you except Jesus Christ, and him crucified. And I came to you in weakness and in fear and in much trembling. My speech and my proclamation were not with plausible words of wisdom, but with a demonstration of the Spirit and of power so that your faith might rest not on human wisdom but on the power of God.

  What does Paul say helped reveal the power of the spirit?

Paul reveals the power of the spirit by saying he chose not to know nothing among him except for Jesus Christ and him being crucified. He came to the spirit and said this he was in fear.

He also asked for his help in what to do.

 

2 Corinthians 12:7-10

even considering the exceptional character of the revelations. Therefore, to keep me from being too elated, a thorn was given to me in the flesh, a messenger of Satan to torment me, to keep me from being too elated. Three times I appealed to the Lord about this, that it would leave me, but he said to me, ‘My grace is sufficient for you, for power is made perfect in weakness.“ So, I will boast all the more gladly of my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may dwell in me. Therefore I am content with weaknesses, insults, hardships, persecutions, and calamities for the sake of Christ; for whenever I am weak, then I am strong.

 

Paul understands that in his grace the law that God has given him is visible.

Which of the intelligence is Paul using in these passages to help people understand God?

 Paul used fear as his intelligence to face the fears of the spirit. 

Whose need for proof does Jesus understand and accept?

Task Two

 

2 examples of the importance and/or value of musical intelligence-  They used music to help people see the will of God and see there plan for us, they used music to show a different way of appreciating God.  — 1 Samuel 16:23-His music is helping to heal the soul of the people and ward the evil through the joint passion of music. He also helped him to see that music can connect people.

3 people who are word smart-  Moses, Aaron,  Philip-  It says that Moses isn’t the best and equal to everyone else. And he wants Jesus to speak to everyone doesn’t matter what’s wrong with them. And that will make his heart happy.

2 people who use logical intelligence- Moses- Exodus 18:13-27- People came to Moses to inquire about God. When they have a dispute, they come to me and I decide between one person or another and I make known to them the statutes and instructions of God. His father-in-law helped him. Also Thomas. 

2  people whose understanding of Jesus is rooted in the intelligence of relationships- Peter and Simon-   Luke 5:4-11- Peter started to understand Jesus when Simon and Peter pulled the nets full of fish into the boat and the boat started sinking.  Peter fell to his knees, saying that Jesus shouldn’t help him because he had sinned. Jesus said to Peter that he was forgiven and that He can teach them about His forgiveness.

1 person who is self smart- Paul- 1 Corinthians 2:1-5 It means that Paul used his fear as his intelligence to face the fears of the spirits.

3 passages that rely on spatial intelligence-  John 1: 3-9- This verse explains how God sent John down to spread his message and bring light to the world. John uses his spatial intelligence to bring light to a world of darkness., Mark 13: 24-27-  This passage is about The Son of Man and about what will happen when he comes, Ezekiel 1: 4-28- The passage talks about the glory of God. It tells about creatures, gleaming of beryl, tall and awesome, shining like crystal and a sound of the tumult which is a loud loud sound. It talks about splendor all around. It almost sounds unbelievable but when they saw this appearance it was the Lord they fell on their knees in awe and listened to God’s voice.

1 person who uses physical intelligence to understand Jesus- Martha-Jesus entered a certain village where Martha welcomed him into her home.   Luke 10:38-42………… When Martha heard that Jesus was coming, she went and met him.  John 11:20-22

Commandments of the Church

In the Five Commandments of the Church,  they all have a similar meaning. They all say something along the lines of attending mass every Sunday and going to confession once a year. All of them are saying that you should be going to mass events every time there is one happening. One of them even says that you should provide for your Church and help them when they need help.  Two of the days that aren’t on a Sunday is January 1 for The Feast of Mary, and the second one that isn’t on a Sunday is the Assumption of Mary into heaven.

Father Joy

This morning we met Father Joy. He is our new Priest at Holy Name of Jesus church. He moved from Edmonton to Vermilion.  Father was also the Priest of St. Theresa in Edmonton. He also was at St. Tomas church.

 He was originally from India more specifically Kerala. It is towards the bottom of India. He grew up with four brothers and one sister, but at the age of eight-teen, his sister left to become a Nun.  He knew that when he was younger he wanted to spread the word of God and wanted to teach people the word.

Father Joy told us more about his background and where he was from and told us all about the different provinces in India.  He told us all about the temperature in India and he even told us that at the top of India in some months it will start to snow.

The population of his province is 34,545,868. The population.  of Canada is 37,411,047. Just the population of Kerala is almost the size of Canada.  This is a picture of India and the red is the province that he lived in.

In India, they have free education for children aged 6-14. All of the schools that they would attend are private. In January 2019, India had over 900 universities and over 40,000 colleges. In 2016, Canada had ninety-six colleges and there is also ninety-six universities.  That’s crazy in all of Canada has fewer colleges and universities than all of India.

Motivations

My top motivation is Relationships. When I’m working, I want to form a connection between us and get to know them and know that they trust me. Job areas that would be ideal for this would be helping others whether its a police officer or if its a support person. It could be anywhere from sitting behind a desk and helping customers to be out on a farm and helping other people do farm work. I feel like this is really me because ever since I was five I’ve wanted to be a police officer and even now I still want to.  Becoming a police officer I would be out helping people and making sure that everyone is safe. My second motivation is an achievement.  This means that I like to be working in a job that will be happy for me when I figure something out that someone else has been working on for a year or two. I want to be recognized for things that I have done that is a good deed.  A job that would be in this field would be a designer.  It lets you be creative and it will praise you for doing something good.  I feel like my top motivation is really something that I would think of doing.

Knowledge

On the survey that I took on MyBluePrint, it shows that my top three subject areas are Physical  Education, Creative Arts, and Computers. I didn’t know that my top subject area was Physical Education.  I thought that I would have been more creative then I am physical. 

I feel like the survey showed me what kinds of things that I am interested in and on the MyBluePrint webpage, it says that the topics that I could study would be Sports, Wellness, and Health Sciences. I think out of all of the subjects I could study in, I would pick Wellness. I would choose Wellness over all of the other subjects because it is a cool topic to research and learn about. 

The other topic I got was Creative Arts. I think that this topic interests me more than Physical Education because there are more opportunities for better jobs.  For example, I could start to become a musician. I could learn how to play many different instruments and could start up a band and play for small events. Also, I could become apart of a theatre group that puts on a play every weekend for the people in the community. Or even if those don’t interest me I could become part of the Visual Arts category. I think that if I was better at drawing this would interest me a lot and I would be really excited to have a career in something like being an artist. 

The last one of my top three subjects is computers. I am very good at computers and feel like this would interest me for something to know how to do but not for a job. I think that learning how to program a computer or even make a  website would be a cool thing to know but not to do as a full-time job. Computer programming is really fun, and I think that it would be stressful to be doing for a full-time job. On the survey, it says that one of the jobs that I could do would be computer science. This job doesn’t really interest me, but I think that it would be pretty cool because you would be able to stalk someone really good if you had a job in this field. 

If I had to choose one out of the three subject areas I would definitely choose Creative Arts over Physical Education and Computers. This field would definitely interest me because I know more things that would interest me if I went to school for it.

Intrests

According to the survey results, I am a confident person and I like to talk to and support other people for what they do. I am wanting to be interacting with other people, and not just sitting behind a desk not talking to anyone.  After I took the survey it showed that I am mostly an enterprising person. That means I would work in the business world and would be a great leader and the person that wants to take risks. I feel like after I’m done school I want to be in a job that involves helping people either if it’s talking to them about their problems or if it is making sure everyone is safe I think that the enterprising person is definitely what I’m mostly want to do.

The tenth commandment

Something that we can do to help the poor is that we can donate to the food bank. The school can collect non-perishable food items and then bring them to the food bank and help organize the food.  What we could do as an individual person is that we can either collect bottles and then buy them food like I did or we could donate our old clothes to a homeless shelter. Our country can help stop homelessness by providing more houses for people who don’t have enough money to afford a house. We could lower the prices of the houses for them or having an apartment building that would be affordable for them. With trying to help with being poor in your spirts we could have more Churches of different cultures and not just two different religions. We could help them more by spreading the word of God.

Personality Survey

When I did this survey I didn’t really know what my personality was. After I finished the survey then that’s when I started to understand what my personality was made up of.  One thing about my personality is that I like to work in groups of people.  Apparently, my personality likes to speak it’s mind even if it could hurt someone’s feelings.  When we have an assignment then I like it better when we have a set date and not a date that is like whenever you are done you are done. I like knowing how long it should take me to finish it, and also I liked to have a set date so then I know I won’t be the last because when I am last I feel like I held up the whole class, but if we have a set date to finish something then I know that if I am last then I won’t be holding back the whole class.  The Feildmarshal, that’s what my personality is called, my ideas that I have are kind of all over the place and that means I could have troubles communicating with other people and trying to explain things to others. If I have a plan and I set my mind to it I am able to accomplish it.  If I ever have to make a decision I put others before me and I think about how it would affect others.  That’s what I learned about my personality.
