2. Respond to at least one classmate’s post by offering additional details or ideas, a different perspective, or links to interesting, relevant articles or websites. Conclude with a question or new idea to further stimulate the discussion

my classmate’s response:

Many early followers of Christianity were direct converters from Paganism who often found that a more tangible representation of religion was easier to stomach than a more faith based religion like Christianity. As such, I think the depiction of Christ the Shepherd or Christ the Teacher would be much easier to swallow than Christ the miracle worker.
