Greetings,

Please note that I have retaken modules 2 & 3 exams, having
obtained score of 47/57:82% & 40/57:70% respectively.

However, I fared somewhat more dismally in Module 1 Exam,
having only obtained scored 25/40:62%

Thus I herewith request your kind permission to retake
Module 1 exam at such time as I have adequately
familiarised myself with this study content.

Also follows a few comments regarding Module 1 Exam
Questions & Answers.

Q8: Scribes: In Jesus’ days the scribes were usually
associated with the Pharisees (Mark 2:16, teachers of law
who were Pharisees). This phrase identifies members of the
scribes who were members of the Pharisaic party.

Q9: Storm brought fear, but stilling thereof brought hope
to conquer uncertain circumstances.

Q11: Herodias had not been Herod’s brother’s wife, but
his father’s brother’s wife!

Q12: Pharisees failed to provide a proper burial for their
parents, as they, unlike the Sadducees did not believe in
the resurrection of the dead. On this point they were on
common ground with the early Christians (Acts 23:6-9).

Q15: Although Matthew overall represented crowds as
people who responded in faith by displaying their belief in
miracles, not all were the same ,thus their reaction was
not unanimous, as also some were friendly, while others
may have been more hostile.

Q17: I would substitute the word is with is like as John
the Baptist is not Elijah, but displays similar traits in
the sense that he fulfills end-time expectations associated
with the prophet.

Q22: Jesus’ confrontation in temple involved chief priests
only, as Pharisees caanot strictly be described as
religious leaders, nor can Pharisees with inclusion of
scribes as broad catergory be defined as religious leaders,
nor can chief priests, scribes elders, Sadduccees with
inclusion of Pharisees be describes as religious leaders as
such, considered as broad category, as Pharisees observed
the law carefully as far as appearances went, but their
hearts were far from God and their motives were wrong as
they wanted human praise and referred to as hypocrites as
their hearts did not match their outward appearance.

Q23: Speeches of Jesus have as chief purpose to teach
disciples nature of kingdom of God, as conformity would
follow as Jesus did not come to condemn unbelievers, but
rather to promote their salvation.

Q24: First major appearance of religious leaders would
have
been in conjunction with Capernaum as that was place Jeaus
had resided in when commencing his ministry.

Q:25: Jesus would not have become silent or silenced, but
rather would have encouraged continued debate.

Q:26: Jesus finally leads disciples to obedience of law,
as may be gatherd from Matthew 5:17-20: The Fulfilment of
the Law.

Q:28: Chapter 16 as the last chapter of Mark refers
to the resurrection, with no post-resurrection narrative
threafter.

Q:29: Jesus did not command silence or grant permision to
speak to demon-possessed, but rather compelled them to
speak by asking questions. Refer Matthew 19:33: And when
the demon was driven out, the man who had been dumb spoke.
Also Mark 5:9 Then Jesus asked him, “What is your name?”
“My name is Legion,” he replied, “for we are many.” The
demons begged to be sent among the pigs and even on these
fallen angels Jesus took mercy.

Q:30: Characteristic self-descriptive title of Jesus is
Messiah, refering to anointed one, a title often used by
early Christians. As the Messiah, Jesus is the divinely
appointed king who brought God’s kingdom to earth (Matt.
12:28; Luke 11:20. His way of victory was not by physical
force and violence, but through love, humility and service.

Q37: Peter rebukes Jesus when predicting suffering knowing
that Jesus is with him and cannot fail, but due to his
unwillingness to accept the suffering of Jesus.

Yours faithfully!
