Theme : Godliness

The major theme presented in Gilgamesh is this idea of trying to become a God. Gilgamesh wants to prevent his fate of dying an wants to be immortal like a God. This art piece shows the “victim” trying to run away from death after his lover died first. “Death [is] so savage who hacks men down” (86). "Epic of Gilgamesh (Andrew George)." Scribd.

In Euthypro, there was a lot of going in circles. There were no clear answers. Euthypro is an example of the citizens of this Era. There are many people like him who just want to please their gods. Euthypro has so much faith in his Gods that he is not willing to say that he does not know the answers to Socrates questions. He will not be proven wrong even though he is just speaking in circles. This painting is perfect for this because it a series of circles just like their conversations. It "moves round in a circle" (30). Plato, , G M. A. Grube, and John M. Cooper.

"Let There Be Light" (Genesis 1:3) It is known to be said by the one and only "Our Father". This story in Genesis is widely believed by so many people in christianity. These christians do not believe in what sciencetist call the Big Bang Theory or Evolution. Theories that are represented with evidence. But due to who these people worship dictates what they believe, This has been a famous quote that is can be said anywhere. It is reference the creation of our world. This painting is called "The Creation of the Universe" which to me is really ironic because this painting is dark and black. But it is picturing as what the Genesis describes as the creation of the universe by our God. If thats what you choose to believe . "BibleGateway." Genesis 1. N.p., n.d. Web. 28 May 2016.
Godliness is not shown in this context but rather the opposite is. This idea of questioning the Gods and its followers is presented through out Euythphro. Socrates believes in Science and is a skeptic. He does not believe that an individual should believe in something just because the Gods say so. He questions everything and everyone. "Do the gods love holiness because it is holy or is it holy because they love it? (18). He needs evidence as to why the answers are what they are. He believes in science. The painting shows many discoveries by many great scientists. If Socrates were allowed to speak his mind and not have to believe in godly things all the time. We would of seen a discovery by him, Plato, , G M. A. Grube, and John M. Cooper. The Trial and Death of Socrates: Euthyphro, Apology, Crito, Death Scene from Phaedo.

The sacrament of First Communion is famous. Even if you are not part of the christian faith you have an idea of what is it and you know the meaning behind it. "This is my body given to you; do this in remembrance of me" (Luke 22:19). Gilgamesh was looking for immortality or for people to remember his name. This is what Jesus Christ did in the Last Supper. He gave them bread and said it was his body and to this day people consume the body of the Lord every week. Immortality is only carried in a God's name. Every one knows who Jesus Christ is ; God.

"They caught such a large number of fish that their nets began to break" (Luke 5:6). Gods are powerful entities that have the power to perform Miracles. This section of Luke is just one of many Miracles that Jesus performed after all he is like a God. "BibleGateway." Luke 5. N.p., n.d. Web. 02 June 2016.
