The bio of a word?

Biographies are cool! Have you ever read the biography of a famous person recently? Popstars, soccer players? Or other inspiring people, like Gandhi, or Banksy. It’s often about things they’ve accomplished. The most read biography in the world is about Jesus and is written by John of Zebedee. He is called “the Word of God”. What does that mean?

Are you a rational person?

Rational or emotional? More focused on facts, instead of emotions? John got a lot of attention by baptising people, what did this action mean? John makes it clear that this is a symbol for new life. What do you think about symbols?

Jesus Gathers Disciples

When do you believe something is true? Just hearing about something is not enough for us, we have to google it, see and hear for ourselves. In the time Jesus started to work and became known, a lot of rumors were going around about him. Who is he? Where does he live? Where was he born? Can he be the prophet that was promised hundreds of years before? This part of Jesus life describes how curious people actually were. Peter was brought to Jesus by his brother Andrew. Philip convinced Nathanael to look for Jesus. After they went for themselves they were overwhelmed by Jesus. How about you?

A Reason to Live – by Joe

“If this is all there is, then what’s the point?”

That describes how I felt about life as a young adult. My life lacked purpose and fulfillment. I just existed.

I found Jesus – by Kate

God has done so many great things in my life. He has helped me through tough times and answered so many prayers – even the small everyday things. At times when I have been greatly stressed I learnt to give all my worry over to him and as a result felt complete peace and joy in the midst of all that was going on – and that is simply incredible!

Trying to Prove Myself to the world – by Jeremy

So, I was lying face down on my bed. It was about 4am, one night in my first year at university and I was feeling absolutely exhausted, but my heart was still pumping with the caffeine from red bull & pro plus.

Something Worth Believing In – by Becky

Two weeks after the funeral I returned to The University for my second year. It wasn’t the same; I missed my dad. I spent my days feeling sad and then trying not to feel sad. Mostly I attempted this by drinking, comfort eating, skipping lectures and finding comfort in different relationships.

To Live – by Holly

Dead. I wanted to be dead. I wanted Death’s arms to envelope me and take me from this life: a life full of pain, abuse, abandonment, disappointment, hatred; I didn’t want it anymore. Oh, sweet surrender! Come Death, come!

Yahweh (U2)

The title of this song means “God.” When you individually translate the letters to Hebrew letters, it spells out God’s name as it appears in The Bible.

When the Music’s over (The Doors)

The theme is music being the fire of life. When it stops, so does life’s spirit. Arguably, one of the most beautifully intense moments of any rock song is when Morrison screams, “Persian Night! See the Light! Save Us! Jesus! Save Us!”

Until the End of the World (U2)

Bono sang this as Judas in a biblical setting. It contains sexual imagery between Judas and Jesus that is open for interpretation.
