Essay Questions

Word of God

Final Exam Essay Questions
1. Every human person has a natural desire for God, written on the human heart, because man has been created by God, for God, to return to God. Only in God will we find the truth and happiness for which we never stop searching. Explain how God makes Himself known to man; the pre-Christian philosophers who recognized that longing of the human soul years before the coming of Christ. Include Patristic testimony and how through faith and reason one comes to know God. Finally, include the importance of that desire in your own life.

2. The Eucharist is the source and summit of Christian life. Numerous references to the Eucharist have been made in both the Old and the New Testament. Describe how the Eucharist has been prefigured in Sacred Scripture, where the Institution of the Eucharist takes place, and how Jesus is the Bread of Life. Be sure to include a specific detailed Biblical account found in the Old Testament and a specific account found in the New Testament. Finally, identify how the Eucharist is the Bread of Life for you.

3. Lectio Divina is an ancient, meditative prayer form practiced at one time by all Christians. Explain this prayerful practice including the two added parts to the ancient form and how one can allow the voice of God to touch our hearts and deepen our relationship with Him.

4. God reveals himself to man in numerous ways. Begin your essay by explaining God’s motive for doing so including who provided that explanation and the name of the document containing the explanation. Continue by defining the two types of revelation, discussing some of the ways in which God has revealed himself to man, and what hinders one’s ability to fully know God. Include in your response at least one detailed reference to Sacred Scripture found in the Old Testament. Finally, conclude your essay by stating how this information is important in strengthening one’s relationship with God.

5. God continually reveals himself throughout all of salvation history. Explain how God is revealed in Sacred Scripture (the steps of Revelation [to whom and how]), the Medium of Revelation and the unity of word and deed. Be sure to provide specific information about the Scripture account we studied in class. Finally explain how this information is important in coming to know, love and serve God.

6. Typology is evidenced throughout Sacred Scripture. Briefly describe the binding of Isaac and explain how this is a type of Christ. Your response should include at least eight (8) comparisons. Conclude your essay by describing how this story holds meaning for your life.

7. The spiritual senses of Sacred Scripture reveal how the texts, realities and events in the Bible can be signs. Briefly describe the story of Joseph, the beloved son of Jacob; define the allegorical, moral, and anagogical senses of Scripture and explain how these are signs. Your essay should include at least five (5) examples. Conclude your essay by describing how this story holds meaning for your life.
