Justin Weisman Professor Dalton Theology 1000C May 5, 2008 Final Response Paper (Ch.9 -10) This paper is on Chapter 9, “Two Milestones on Jesus’ Way: Peter’s Confession and the Transfiguration,” and Chapter 10, “Jesus Declares His Identity.” Chapter 9 is fairly short and covers Peter’s confession to Jesus on how he has betrayed him and transfiguration (when the bread becomes the body and the wine becomes the blood at the Last Supper). Chapter 10 was a hair longer and, I felt, an inadequate ending. It dealt with the names Jesus went by, among these are “Son of Man,’ “The Son,” “I Am,” “I Am He,” along with a few other more common names. Chapter 9 I liked better than chapter 10 because there was much less lecture and more opinion, things to stir my thoughts. A paragraph that drew my attention was where it is said “His inquiry about the opinion of the people and the conviction of the disciples presupposes two things.” It then describes that what some people, the majority generally, know about Jesus is actually little or inadequate at that. It is not “the whole truth” per say. Also, there is a “deeper knowledge” of Jesus and it is associated with discipleship. According to the dictionary a disciple is “one who accepts and assists in spreading the doctrines of another.” Obviously the original 12 Disciples of Christ fit this but what about the common people?

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
