Exam II questions IOCC 201

1.        Apply the Quadriga Method to the following selection from the The Gospel of Mark:


Again he began to teach beside the sea. Such a very large crowd gathered around him that he got into a boat on the sea and sat there, while the whole crowd was beside the sea on the land. He began to teach them many things in parables, and in his teaching he said to them: “Listen! A sower went out to sow. And as he sowed, some seed fell on the path, and the birds came and ate it up. Other seed fell on rocky ground, where it did not have much soil, and it sprang up quickly, since it had no depth of soil. And when the sun rose, it was scorched; and since it had no root, it withered away. Other seed fell among thorns, and the thorns grew up and choked it, and it yielded no grain. Other seed fell into good soil and brought forth grain, growing up and increasing and yielding thirty and sixty and a hundredfold.” And he said, “Let anyone with ears to hear listen!”


2.        List the Five Pillars of Islam.  Tell me one new thing you learned about Islam from reading The Koran.


3.       Read the following passage from the Bible:


As it is written in the prophet Isaiah,[c]

“See, I am sending my messenger ahead of you,[d]
    who will prepare your way;
the voice of one crying out in the wilderness:
    ‘Prepare the way of the Lord,
    make his paths straight,’”


Now tell me what it means to a member of the Hebrew Faith.

What does it mean to a member of the Christian Faith?


4.        How does the Gospel of Mark begin?  Would a Muslim believe the opening narrative in Mark? Why or why not? How did the Gospel of Mark end when it was first written?  How does it end now?


5.        How does Covenant (contract) theology differ from Salvation by Faith.  Recall something you read from Paul (Romans) to help your argument.


6.       How does Salvation by Faith differ from Islamic submission?  Recall something you read from The Koran to help your argument.
