Did you know that every hero that has ever existed has followed the Hero's Journey in some way? The Hero's Journey is a path that consists of separate steps that every hero engages in. It has 3 main parts-the "Departure," the "Initiation," and the "Return"-which are broken down into smaller sub-parts. In ancient mythology, Atalanta is a young lady who as a baby, was left on a mountaintop to die. She then was raised by a she-bear and grew into a young lady who became daring and quick. However, the story of Atalanta only partially follows the hero's journey.
This kind woman tried to encourage this boy to have faith in God and Jesus, Jesus was the “lamb of god” also “a man with sorrows and acquainted with grief.” “Sundays [were] days for Jesus; it was wrong to feel comfortable or laugh on a Sunday.” Jesus was the lamb of god and went around the world for three years sending his message to others implying them not to do harm. When the little boy grew up to be a businessman, “he began to wonder about Jesus [again],” in a different aspect than before. The businessman knew that great successful businessmen inspire enthusiasm and build great organizations, Jesus Christ already established the greatest organization above anyone else. The businessman now waited to see if anyone would write a novel about Jesus Christ, an individual who knew him personally. In the businessman’s mind, he would treat Jesus Christ as an individual he never heard of before. The businessman had no faith in Jesus Christ, but was interested in making money off a character he thinks is weak, and grabbed twelve individuals from the bottom of the chain and built the greatest organization people praised him love and forgiveness. Nobody wrote the book so the businessman wrote the book
What images come to mind as you reflect on your childhood? Playgrounds, blackboards, and soccer balls may be among the warmest of memories. Yet for many mermaids swim their thoughts, princesses get swept of their feet, and lions roar to their loyal place in the animal kingdom. There is no doubt that today’s entertainment has most of its touch using classical influences. Walt Disney has produced animated films that have captured the heart and imagination of audiences of all ages around the world through the magic of storytelling and imagery. Many of us appreciate the imagination and magic that Disney puts into its animations with out knowing they are based off of classical and traditional storylines
The night air was heavy with silence. Clouds drifted across a calm sky, and a full moon shone in the distance. In a small hut on the outskirts of the valley, an old man lay in bed, awake in the peaceful slumber of the village. His breaths came in rattling gasps, his forehead burned, and his joints felt stiff with pain. He shifted on the blankets, his withered hands clenched in fists as he tried to suppress the wave of bitter memories coming to him. His life had been nothing more than work, loss, tragedy. He remembered all of his hope, his ambition, in his youth, and he smiled bitterly. No one would remember him as the man that he had once hoped he would become. Now, as his breathing became heavier and he felt himself fading on the brink of
This man is the Christ, the son of God. In Mark this man has gone around teaching and healing people. He has forgiven sins because we are a sinful people. This man is the one who will later go be beaten and given up by his father in heaven. This man has been rejected and mocked by his own people with a crown of thorns upon his head. This man will be nailed to a cross and placed into a tomb. This man will die and be raised from the dead 3 day later. This man paid the price for our sin. He has beaten the devil and lives in victory. In our text we can see this proof because he gets up save his disciples even though they lack faith. In the same way he will be there to help you with your storms. Pray to God, worship him and love him with all your heart and mind. We see that our God can save and truly cares for us. In October 2015 the coast guard rescues a cargo ship of 12 men. These men were off the coast of Miami closer to Haiti and were caught in a storm. The coast guard rescues them just like Jesus rescued his disciples from facing death. Our Lord like the coast guard will bring us back to safety and bring us home.
Could you ever imagine sending your child on a field trip knowing that end purpose was for them to die? GOD sent his only son, Jesus Christ, to earth ultimately for this trip. Desire coming from the flesh of a woman, Jesus Christ is GOD's son. Jesus walked the earth to teach us about his father and how he wished for us to live, so that our souls would be clean in order to reach the pearly gates of heaven.

Jesus is like the water a person drinks, it is a must to survive. I believe, that everyone has their idealized image of a social figure he or she does not know such as Martin Luther King, John F, Kennedy, and Malcolm X to name a few. Each of these people at one point has been portrayed in entertainment and people do not know if what is being portrayed is true. According to Yancey (1995), he described “Jesus as thin, handsome, skin waxen and milky white man” (p.13). However, after Yancey attends college, he begins to ponder, who is the real image of Jesus, aside from what is being portrayed in movies, or other entertainment? Sometimes, in life, people can go off what they have seen or heard about a person and not really understand the person. While, I am a granddaughter, of a minster, I have been told stories about who Jesus is, but have I seen him as the person he is deep down? The purpose of this paper is seeking to discuss the summary of the book, The Jesus, I Never Knew. I will be talking about Philip Yancey’s take on what he thinks of Jesus. I also will be discussing, some of Philip Yancey strengths and weakness about his book.

There I was sitting at the table eating what the nuns like to call food what just looked like to me slop I was sitting with my friend Felix. He came across a carrot and it was a full-size carrot he just sat there and stared at it not even touching it if he did not hurry up and I was going to grab it and eat it.
A few months later, I found myself riding with Halt back to his quaint little cottage nestled in the woods. He was teaching me about animal tracks. As our horses tread against the snow that lay on the ground, I noticed a massive print next to the cottage, and Halt said it was a giant boar. A man was lying in the bushes and came out to claim that he had seen the boar first hand, and that it was a mad and destructive one. Halt told him to go to the castle and tell the Baron to gather a group of men so that we can all go hunt the boar in the morning. The next day, I found myself on horseback on the outside of a circle of warriors, and Horace. If the boar were to escape through our circle, I was to chase it down and finish it off with my bow.
Let me tell you a short story about this boy. It was 9 o'clock in the afternoon when his parent asked him what he wanted to be when he grew up, he said with enthusiasm "I want to be a doctor", not knowing what it is. After that we just went about our days. Ten years later, he's a senior in junior high school getting ready to embark on the road where many have failed. He did what he had to do so that he can graduate. Graduation day was here and pretty quickly. His parents said to him, "no more fun and games, you are going to enter high school. All I want from you is to pass your class of high grades , graduate and go on to college to pursue your career to become a doctor." This kid heard a lot of things when it comes to becoming a doctor and
The nobleman asks Jesus again to come and save his son. Jesus tells the man that he can go home; that his son will live. Now, what I find interesting is that the nobleman didn’t even question Jesus or continue begging him to come with him. The nobleman simply left to go home believing that what Jesus had said was true. There is no mention anywhere in the Gospel of John of this man or how he knew of Jesus. It makes sense to me that the nobleman must have witnessed one of Jesus’ thereby reinforcing his faith in Him.
