Shall I hide from Abraham what I am about to do? Does this SOUND like a command to fuonnictal subordinates or a discussion among equals?An often missed metaphor for the Godhead is in the Patriarchs. Joseph is seen as a type of Jesus, rightly so. Much is made of Jacob's sons bowing down to him and the fact that ALL of them needed to do it, when Benjamin is missing, Joseph asks for him to come. Benjamin then does this and many teachers just do not discuss the remainder of the 2nd dream, namely that Joseph's mother and father ALSO will bow down to him.But if Joseph is a type of the Son, then Jacob can be seen as a type of the Father in this part of the story. In other words, in this metaphor, the types demonstrate mutual submission in order for us to get a glimpse of what the Godhead is like.

, is that a violation of his ctinontutiosal rights? That’s what we’re talking about. How do you analyze that question? Since his comments broach on advocacy, I would say no', none of his ctinontutiosal rights were violated. The University has an interest in distancing itself from advocating any particular religion, or even appearing to advocate any particular religion. I do think, however, that the case could be effectively made that principles of academic freedom have been violated. Whether he clearly advocated his religious beliefs as opposed to describing Catholic teaching, is not clear. At the institutional level a public university should distance itself from these kinds of situations. At the personal level, however, this is where something such as tenure comes into play. If this was a tenured faculty member he could more likely afford to challenge this boundary.
