Hello everyone

Since there is not a recent threat I thought I would create one.
How is everyone getting on with their revision for this topic? I myself am struggling a lot.

Also, what do people think might be the predictions for this years paper?

I think it will be something about nature/value of human life and maybe attitudes to death.

You don't think eschatological/apocalyptic will come up?

Nature came up last year, and so did death.

Well first we give an introduction, this could be a defintion of one the words in the question like human life. Then we talk about religious perspectives such as Christianity, Buddhism, Islam. Then we give secular views such as philosophers like Sartre Darwin etc. then conclude.

Ah see we've been told to do:Intro (defining key words)Main paragraphs with key ideas, and comparing/contrasting ideas. (Have your teachers not taught you this way? I've spoken to a few people and they havent been told to compare/contrast which I find strange..Conclusion. Have you been told to take an in-depth approach or a brief one?

What do you mean by comparing and contrasting. I compare similarities and differences between religious views. And yes we take an in-depth approach

For example, like this: Most Christians have a transitional approach to death and beyond; you transition from this earthly, mortal life to a greater place where you can be spiritually or physically connected to God. Normally this place would be either Heaven or Hell. There is, however, disagreement as to whether it will be a physical resurrection, or a spiritual one. Many have approached is as being physical due to Jesus’ physical bodily resurrection. This is central to Kerygma, Christians central teaching, and if it did not happen then it could put the whole of the Christian faith in jeopardy. However, others see it as more of a spiritual resurrection, having a dualistic approach. This would mean that the body would stay on earth, but the soul, the essence of you, would transition into the beyond. This idea is supported by St Paul in 1 Corinthians 15, where he talks about the difference between ‘heavenly bodies’ and ‘earthly bodies.’ Some have suggested that this divergence in thought possibly comes from the difference between Hebrew traditions (monism) and Greek ones (dualism). For many, belief in some kind of afterlife and that death is not the end is central to the Christian faith. (Is this similar to how you structure yours? Also are you taking the Old Testament paper as well?)

I guess every centre teaches it differently.

What topic are you finding hardest?
Im struggling with A02 for apocalyptic and eschatological. Do you have any tips or essays you'd be willing to share?
