Name/Course Title/Task #/Date submitted. Question 1 Is biblical faith a cultural trait or a reflection of human reality? Biblical faith serves to reflect human reality. The existence of man gets traced through historical facts and happenings.

The history affirmed defines one's reality as it is the root of self-redemption. Question 2 What is the archaic view of the sacred on time and eternity?

The world to them experiences an eternal recurrence of events thus leading to the suspension of time hence time, and historical happenings have no significance (Herberg 297-299). The society and their systems used this explanation to keep touch with being. Question 4 Who created heaven and earth? Was the earth void or with form during creation? Enuma Elish and the Genesis story are different.
