Waec Christian religious knowledge

[4/18, 10:19 AM] : 4a) This story relates how Hosea has three children, a son
called Jezreel, a daughter Lo-Ruhamah and another son
Lo-Ammi. All the names are described in the text as
having symbolic meaning, reflecting the relationship
between God and Israel . Jezreel is named after the valley
of that name . Lo-Ruhamah is named to denote the ruined
condition of the kingdom of Israel and Lo-Ammi is named
in token of God's rejection of his people.  Although the
latter two children are not specifically said to be Hosea's,
James Mays says that this is "hardly an implication" of
Gomer's adultery. In 3:1, however, it says that she is
"loved by another man and is an adulteress". Hosea
is told to buy her back, and he does so for 15 shekels and
a quantity of barley. Exodus 21:32 establishes the value of
a maidservant at 30 shekels so Gomer's value is
diminished. She is not mentioned again in the book.
Some analysts, following Felix Ernst Peiser, have
suggested that this marriage is really a figurative or
prophetic reference to a union between the " lost tribes of
Israel " with the people of Gomer, following the Assyrian
The relationship between Hosea and Gomer has been
posited to be a parallel to the relationship between God
and Israel. Even though Gomer runs away from Hosea
and sleeps with another man, he loves her anyway and
forgives her. Likewise, even though the people of Israel
worshiped other gods, God continued to love them and
did not abandon his covenant with them.
According to Kirsten Abbott, feminist interpretation
regards the story of Hosea and his relations with his wife
Gomer as a metaphor for the conflict between a Covenant
Theology (Israel violating the covenant relationship with
YHWH) and a Creation Theology (YHWH will undo the
fertility of the earth in response to Israel following other
fertility gods).
[4/18, 10:24 AM]  [4/18, 9:44 AM] : (2a)
the LORD said to Moses, Take you
the son of Nun, a man in whom
is the spirit,
and lay your hand on him;…
Moses, after having
been the leader of his people for
forty years,
is at length to get his discharge.
Nothing has
yet been determined regarding a
successor. The
point is, on every account, too
important to be
left open till the present leader
has passed
away. A change of leadership,
always hazardous,
is especially hazardous when the
army is in the
field and the enemy is on the
watch. If the
Divine wisdom judged it
necessary that Eleazar
should be invested with the high
before Aaron died, much more is
it necessary
that, before Moses lays down the
scepter, a
successor should be appointed
and placed in

Now I am sending you to the king of Egypt so
that you can
lead my people out of his country .
But Moses said to God , “ I am nobody . How can
I go to the king and bring the
Israelites out of Egypt?”
God answered , “ I will be with you, and when
you bring the people out of Egypt ,
you will worship me on this mountain .
That will be the proof that I have sent you. ”
But Moses replied , “ When I go to the Israelites
and say to them, ‘ The God of
your ancestors sent me to you, ’ they will
ask me , ‘ What is his name ?’ So what can I
tell them?”
God said , “ I am who I am . You must tell them :
‘ The one who is called I Am has sent me to
you. ’
Tell the Israelites that I , the Lord, the God of
ancestors, the God of Abraham , Isaac , and
Jacob , have sent you to them.
