Religion is a very important part of most peoples lives Many of us think of ourselves as being religious but how many of us actually study the basis of our beliefs Before I took this course I never really thought about the importance of knowing more than was taught to us in church As a younger child I attended a catholic private school but since then I havent dedicated much of my time to reading the Bible Not only did this course help address some of the questions about my beliefs but also it brought up many more that I would have never thought of other words Confusion easily happens when reading the gospels because it is some times hard to differentiate how to read the different passages Literalism and metaphorical interpretation can often be interchangeable and other times it is just difficult to know what a passages even means This is why it is important to read the gospels more than just once to begin to understand them Pre-critical naivet critical and post-critical naivet are excellent ways in which to view the gospels each time they are read I like to think that I am open-minded to many peoples different opinions However Ive come to realize that I am more stuck on my views that I previously thought For example my catholic belief that Jesus was born through the virgin conception cant be shaken by what weve done in during this course On the other hand the possibility that Mary could ever have any other children never occurred to me This is just one example of how my curiosity was aroused by the Gospel of Mark Marks Gospel is thought to be the earliest of the gospels It is the shortest and more to the point than the others It lacks many of the details that contradict with the other gospels and cloud their credibility For this reason
