Comparison of Book of John versus Quran – Chapter 4, Al Nisa, Women
The purpose of this paper is to provide my layman’s comparison of The Book of John from the Bible and Chapter 4, Al Nisa, Women of the Quran.
My primary impression of the two books are that they are vastly different in how they read. The Book of John reads like a story, a narrative per say while Chapter 4 of the Quran reads much like a legal document or contract. The two books are very different and deliver very different messages to the reader.
The Quran, Chapter 4 focus’ on women, it outlines their rights and their obligations. This chapter covers subjects such as a woman’s rights, how orphans are to be treated, inheritance, their obligations, modesty, behavior, tremendous and unparalleled sins, ethical issues, weapons, polygamy and men’s superiority over them.
Female orphans can marry their guardian, if they wish. She is entitled to her fair dower. However, if she has poor relatives then they should be present at the time her inheritance is disbursed so that they may claim a share of it, that way they are not disappointed. If a woman is not an orphan and inherits from a family members death there is a very distinct division of property. Women (daughters) are entitled to a one-sixth share. A man (sons) would receive the equivalent of two sisters, or one-third. If an adult child dies and has no heirs then the parents inherit their property, one-third to the mother, two-thirds to the father. There are multiple scenarios on how property is to be split within this portion of the chapter.
Lewd and lascivious behavior is address for both women and men. Women who are found guilty of committing sexual immorality are either confined indoors for life or can repent and marry their partner. If men commit homosexual acts, both are punished, they must repent and abstain from such behavior.

Comparison : the Reader, Book and Movie

...ompar Comparison between 'The reader' – Book/Movie Usually when it comes to books and movies books are a lot more detailed and descriptive towards characters and their feelings. Movies usually cut out important parts or aren't as deep as a book. In this case i felt that the movie was very much alike to the book and included all emotions and important scenes, what i really liked also was that the story line wasn't changed in the movie. They emphasized really well Hanna and Michaels relationship in a way i thought wouldn't be possible. They managed to portray their relationship exactly how it was explained in the book, every detail came across to the viewers and also made it a lot easier to understand the book itself in ways one couldn't before seeing the movie. I thought they wouldn't emphasize the fact that Hanna was illiterate but they really made that come across well therefore the whole movie had better understanding as did the book. I do feel that the book was much slower with the reading between Michael and Hanna but in a way that was well done because then the movie would have become too slow and gotten a bit boring. It's different in the book because you expect that slowness but it was good that in the film they put together most of that in a few minutes, still emphasizing it. The book made some scenes more intimate of course because its hard to get that across in a film. They portray feelings very well for example when Hanna dies that gets across very well......

...John Williams January 16,2014 Chapter 4 problems 2,3,4,5,15,18,and 26 2. Property is transferred to the corporation only in exchange for stock in the transferee corporation. Immediately after the exchange, the transferor-shareholders in aggregate control the transferee corporation by owning at least 80% of its stock And If a transferor receives money or property (other than stock in the transferee corporation), the transferor recognizes a gain (but no loss) equal to the lesser of the boot received or the realized gain. In addition, a corporation that transfers appreciated property (other than its own stock or debt obligations) to the transferor-shareholders also recognizes a gain on the exchange. 3. provide tax relief when a person transfers property to a corporation in exchange for stock in that corporation and has no proceeds from the sale of the existing property with which to pay the tax on any realized gain. 4. taxpayers participating in a like-kind exchange receive cash or other property in addition to the like-kind property. This non-like-kind property is referred to as a “boot, when that occurs, the taxpayer has not received solely like-kind property. Fortunately, a “ceiling rule” in section 1031 takes care of this problem by providing that gain or loss is recognized, but only to the extent of the amount of boot received. 5. No gain willl be recognized if property is transferred to a corporation by one or more persons solely in exchange for stock in such......

...Theological Seminary John Dickson Book Critique Humilitas: A Lost Key to Life, Love, AND Leadership A paper Submitted to Dr. Donald Hicks In Partial Fulfillment Of the Requirements for the Course Preventing Ministry Failure Lead 625 By Dwight Chavis February 22, 2014 Table of Contents Summary…………..……………..……………………………………………………page 1 Critique …………...………………………………………………………………… 2 Evaluation…………………………………………………………………………… 4 Conclusion ……………………………………………………………………… 4 Bibliography ……………………………………………………………………… 5 SUMMARY Author John Dickson has written a book on a word that is often misunderstood and misused. In his book Humilitas: A Lost Key to Life, Love, AND Leadership, He takes a multi-dimensional look at the subject of humility. He is very aware that writing a book on this subject can give the appearance that he himself has been able to achieve the goal of being known as a humble person. However, the opposite is true, Dickson writes, “Humility stands alone among the virtues in that as soon as you think that you have, you probably don’t.” This statement shows that in no way he thinks that he has been able to achieve this lofty goal. Dickson means for this book to be a practical one and hopes to achieve his thesis statement in which he writes, “My thesis is simple: The most influential and inspiring people are often marked by humility.” With that in mind, he sets the reader on a chapter by chapter tour with such......

...features designed to support various car2go operational systems, like an onboard immobilizer and telematics unit. Many of the cars in the Hamburg program will be fitted with gasoline engines, as opposed to diesel, using start-stop technology better suited to urban driving. With many of these programs still in the infancy stages, it is difficult to tell how profitable they are and whether they can operate sustainably in the long run. But at least one thing is for certain: as new consumer patterns emerge, companies like BMW and Daimler will have to respond to keep up. By creating programs like BMW on Demand and car2go, these companies are paying attention to who these new consumers are and what they’re looking for. CASE ASSIGNMENT CHAPTER 4: Daimler/BMW: A New Breed of Driver Open-ended questions 1. Discuss environmental factors related to population that are changing the way certain people approach car buying and are thus creating new market segments. - Consumers expect businesses to address environmental influence on how products and services are delivered, and to work with the natural environment instead of slowly destroying it. 2.

...Chapter Four Business Ethics and Social Responsibility: Doing Well by Doing Good Review Questions How do relative ethics compare to universal ethical standards? Should ethics ever be relative? Provide a rationale for your response. Relative ethics apply to you and your family. Universal ethics apply to everyone depending on the situations that they encounter. Ethics should be relative because everyone should be held accountable to know the difference between right and wrong. What is an ethical dilemma? Give 3 examples of ethical dilemmas that workers or managers might face in a business setting. An ethical dilemma is when you are in put in a situation with negative consequences forcing you to choose between two or more bad options. 1) Your boss tells you to write a check for him to cover the cost of entertaining a company client the previous night. He turns in the necessary receipts, but you over hear him talking to his girlfriend thanking him for the dinner the previous night. 2) You are in real estate, and you have a potential seller who says to help them sell their deceased parents house and they don’t know how much it is worth, but they will be happy with $100,000. You look at the house and realize this house is easily worth $200,000 and would be a perfect house for your sister. 3) You are a teacher, you have a student who is a full time student and is also working full time to pay for college.

Worldview in the Book of John

...Worldview in the Book of John To better comprehend the reasoning behind God’s word in the bible, the historical-cultural context must be considered to provide the necessary insight to grasp the intended message. The first background to investigate would be the writer. Understanding the writer’s faith would tell a lot about why he is writing and under what circumstance(s). Secondly, the historical setting would provide some insight into the definitions and types of wording and sentence structures used. This would significantly allow the reader to “convert” into modern day literary styles. Thirdly, the culture during the times of the writings will significantly provide insight into the why the message is being given. Including these aspects into your study of God’s Word, as written during ancient times, will provide you a correct understanding of the message and application today. John 2:1-21 documents Jesus’ first documented miracle. The historical reference that I feel needs to be understood is that Mary’s relationship with Jesus. She is well aware of His origin as God’s son before His birth as well as the events surrounding His birth. This accounts for her statement to the servants in John 2:5 “His mother said to the servants, “Whatever He says to you, do it””. Based on this historical background, she knew who He truly was and He could provide. The first cultural reference to be investigated would be the wedding itself. Is it the same ceremony as practiced......

The Giver - Film & Book Comparison

...The Giver - Film/Novel Comparison Fiona from the book The Giver, is very laid back and is a supporting character in the book, while in the film version she is made into this love interest. She also completely changed jobs in the community, which actually resulted in different endings for each the book and movie. Although she is the same dialogue-wise, her personality even somewhat changed from book to movie. Fiona in the book was never a love interest, she was always a best friend and just supported Jonas. The reason I believe they changed her into a love interest is because they were increasing everyone’s age and it gave a more memorable ending to the movie. The book just cut off after he gets to the bottom of the hill. It was never said what happened to Fiona after Jonas leaves the community. She just disappears and isn’t in the book anymore. Fiona was a caregiver in the book and took care of the old people. In the movie, they completely went to the opposite side of the spectrum and she was a nurturer and took care of newchildren. It makes sense that they made the decision to give her a very caring, sweet job with the newchildren. Without her having that job, she wouldn’t have had access to the facility that Gabe was at at the end of the movie when Jonas took him. In the book Gabe never leaves Jonas’s dwelling. He just takes him out of his crib and leaves, in the movie, they made it into a huge action sequence. I thought that it was cliche but essential that the......

AÑO: 2016– V Ciclo TRUJILLO – PERÚ COMPARISON ABOUT BEOWULF CHARACTER IN A FILM AND THE POEM The story of Beowulf is a timeless tale that many people have heard before. Beowulf is the great Anglo-Saxon hero who represents all that is good in the world and fights to protect the innocent. Beowulf goes out to battle monsters like Grendel, Grendel’s mother, and the firedrake to keep the people safe. This part of the story will always remain the same and will never change. However, when comparing the poem to the film there are in fact both similarities and substantial changes. I have considered appropriate to compare the similarities and differences of Beowulf’s personality and physical appearance. In the lines below, I will develop this issue. When comparing Beowulf’s personality and physical appearance in the poem and the film, there a few similarities between the two. Both the character in the poem and in the film possesses the same basic traits. In both the poem and the film, Beowulf is described as being the best and bravest of the Geats.
