You Promised Us - You Promised Us Fulfillment and typology are two major methods that New Testament writers use to connect the Hebrew Bible with the Christian New Testament. Fulfillment deals with the very words of the prophets who, according to New Testament writers, verbally predicted events that the Messiah would accomplish.

Rather, it is simply an event from the Hebrew Bible that is said to foreshadow another event in the Christian New Testament....   [tags: New Testament Bible Christianity Religion Essays]

Valuing a Website Before You Sell - Valuing a Website Before You Sell Reprinted with permission of VotanWeb.com There is probably no part of the buying process that worries a potential buyer more than overpaying for a website. While this is understandable (who wants to pay more than something is worth), it has more to do with misinformation and one's total approach to buying a website than it does to being an expert at appraisals. The truth is, value is completely subjective. After all, what one website may be worth to you is entirely different from what it is worth to the next person....   [tags: Sell Websites Buy Websites] 1092 words
