03. Dr Franken observes, "The list of names in the genealogy of Jesus in Luke 3:23-38 is completely different to the names in Matthew's genealogy". Is this an accurate statement? Which evaluation below accurately assesses Franken's comment? a. Franken is completely wrong. Luke's list goes all the way back to Adam, whereas Matthew stops at Abraham. But from Abraham to Jesus the two genealogies contain a very similar list of names. They seem different because they are in the opposite orders (Luke starts with Jesus, while Matthew ends with Jesus). b. Franken is essentially correct, although he has slightly overstated the difference. The two lists are the same from Abraham to David, but completely different from David to Jesus, and Matthew does not include the period from Adam to Abraham. c. Franken is 100 per cent correct. There is very little agreement between the two genealogies. They are in the opposite orders, and conflict consistently in the names they lists between Jacob and Jesus. d. Franken is mistaken and misrepresents the extent of the disagreements. Although the two gospels disagree about some of the ancestors between David and Jesus, for the most part they are in agreement. We cannot count the period from Adam to Abraham, because Matthew leaves that out. 04. Turning to the Sermon on the Plain (Luke 6:17-49), Franken makes the statements listed below. With which of his statements does Dr Smith, the author of the course study guide, agree? (There is more than one correct answer.) a. The Sermon on the Plain in Luke is clearly the same event as the Sermon on the Mount in Matthew. b. The Sermon on the Plain contains a close summary of the actual sermon Jesus preached on that day. Matthew has expanded it by adding some of Jesus's other sayings to form his Sermon on the Mount. c. Jesus originally said, "Blessed are the poor in spirit" (Matt. 5:3), but Luke has modified the original saying to focus on those who are physically poor (Luke 6:20). d. Many of the sayings in Matthew's Sermon on the Mount are found elsewhere in Luke's gospel, such as in chapters 11, 12, and 16. e. In Luke 6:30, "Give to everyone who asks you" does not mean we should give to everyone who begs from us. 4

05. Estimates of the length of Jesus's public ministry range from 1 year to 4½ years. Most scholars believe Jesus probably ministered for around 3¼ years. The 3¼-year view is based on the belief that the Jewish Feast mentioned in John 5:1 is a Passover. If it was the Feast of Tabernacles, then his ministry was only a little over two years. a. True b.

    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.
