Investigate and fully understand the business potential of industrial Hemp cultivation, specifically in Virginia. Hemp is an amazing plant with a long history of use and virtually unlimited uses. With recent changes in Federal legislation, this incredible plant is now legal to grow and no longer classified as an illegal drug. This is an exciting time for the future of the hemp plant and the business that can come with it.
The purpose of this research is to fully analyze and understand all aspects of a successful hemp business.
These include, but are not limited to:
- Investigating how much land is required to grow an adequate amount of product to produce a profit.
- What farming materials and machinery is required for the plant’s success. Ex. Harvesting machinery, pesticides, and fertilizer.
- Which application of the hemp plant would be most profitable? With so many uses of the plant, which application has the most market value? How do you maximize profit from every part of the plant?
- Fully understanding government sanctions including taxes, legalities, and insurance requirements in the state of Virginia.
- Establishing a timeline of how long it would take for a hemp startup to become a successful, profitable business.
This paper is going to address the uniqueness of the prologue, and will further explore how it connects with the rest of the Gospel of John. The prologue previews most of the themes that the author will explain throughout the Gospel. There are 8 listed themes; ‘the pre-existence of the word, light of world, light and darkness, witness or testimony, glory, life, world, father and son relationship.’ However, for the purpose of this essay, only three themes will be covered. Namely; the theme of the pre-existence, father and son relationship and glory. Scholars believes that the Gospel of John was written between ’70AD and 90AD’. The author ‘is identified as John the son of Zebedee, who was one of Jesus’ twelve apostles and the beloved one’. However, the authorship is debatable among scholars, some suggest that ‘Prologue was originally a poem from some other religious traditions perhaps gnostic’. According to the gospel, it is maintained that the author was a Palestinian Jew, familiar with the religion, land and rituals of his people. All throughout the gospel, the author suggests that he was an eyewitness to the scenes that he was unravelling. The Gospel of John however is a unique book among the four Gospels. The true representation of Jesus lies at the heart of all that is unique in this Gospel. The Gospels are recognised as the Synoptics because of their close resemblances to each other. Jesus is revealed in different ways in these four Gospels. The Gospel of Matthew reveals Jesus as the king of the Jews. Mark presents Him as the suffering servant. In Luke’s version, Jesus is seen as a perfect man. Whereas in Luke’s Gospel, Jesus is humanity whereas John’s emphasizes his deity. The Fourth Gospel, also known as ‘the spiritual gospel’, begins by immediately presenting ‘Christ not as the Son of David, nor the Son of man, but begins with ‘a prologue in which Jesus’ deity is openly declared’. Maurice Casey propounds that ‘the Christology of the fourth Gospel is one of its most remarkable features, and one which distinguishes it sharply from the other three Synoptic’. Its authenticity is sometimes questionable among scholars because ‘many of the major themes and events of the first three Gospels are missing in the fourth Gospel’. While on the one hand it includes ‘many significant episodes not mentioned by Matthew, Mark and Luke’. It is further argued that ‘if the Synoptics present a clear picture of Jesus, then John’s portrayal can hardly be accepted’. D.A. Carson identifies differences between the fourth Gospel and the Synoptics. He observes that ‘there are no narratives parables, no account of the transfiguration, no record of the institution of the Lord’s supper, no report of Jesus casting out a demon and no mention of Jesus’ temptations’.>GET ANSWER
