Download or read book Origen written by Ronald E. Heine and published by OUP Oxford. This book was released on 2010-11-25 with total page 288 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: This book is about the life and thought of Origen (c.185-254 A.D.), the most important Greek-speaking Christian theologian and Biblical scholar in antiquity. His writings included works on the text of the Bible, commentaries and sermons on most of the books of the Bible, a major defense of the Christian faith against a philosophical skeptic, and the first attempt at writing systematic theology ever made. Ronald E. Heine presents Origen's work in the context of the two urban centers where he lived-Alexandria in Egypt, and Caesarea in Palestine. Heine argues that these urban contexts and their communities of faith had a discernable impact on Origen's intellectual work. The study begins with a description of Roman Alexandria where Origen spent the first forty-six years of his life. The thought of the Alexandrian Christian community in which Origen was born and in whose service he produced his first written works is examined from the limited resources that have survived. The remains of Origen's writings produced in Alexandria provide information about his early theological views as well as the circumstances of his life in Alexandria. Heine discusses the issues of the canon and text of the Bible used by Origen and the Alexandrian Christian community and the special work called the Hexapla which he produced on the text of the Septuagint. Origen's later life in Caesarea was shaped by pastoral as well as teaching duties. These responsibilities put him in contact with the city's large Jewish population. Heine argues that the focus of Origen's thought shifts in this period from his earlier Alexandrian occupation with Gnostic issues to the complex questions concerning the relationship between church and synagogue and the ultimate fate of the Jews. In his final years it appears that Origen was rethinking some of the views he had espoused in his earlier work.

Download or read book The Cross in Christian Tradition written by Elizabeth Dreyer and published by Paulist Press. This book was released on 2000 with total page 276 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: For the past two thousand years, the cross has been a powerful symbol of the Christian faith and an anchor of its symbol system. In this volume, a group of distinguished scholars delves into the theologies and spiritualities of the cross at select moments in the tradition. They examine biblical texts and commentaries, lectionaries, liturgical poetry, sermons, and theological spiritual treatises in: Paul, the early liturgy, Origen, Augustine and Bonaventure. Each chapter provides a window into how particular contexts influenced the interpretation of the cross and how the cross functioned in each unique historical moment. Originally presented at Saint Mary's College, these papers offer a fresh and distinctive approach to the literature on the cross. The authors' historical perspective points to the tradition as a transforming agent for theology and spirituality today. Contributors: - Elizabeth A. Dreyer - Jerome Murphy-O'Connor - Nathan D. Mitchell - Peter J. Gorday - John Cavadini Here is a book that will interest liturgists and Christian educators, university and seminary students and members of religious orders. Although scholarly in tone, can be read with profit by adult educated Christians as well. +
Book Synopsis The Oxford Handbook of Origen by : Ronald E. Heine
Download or read book The Oxford Handbook of Origen written by Ronald E. Heine and published by Oxford University Press. This book was released on 2022-02-17 with total page 625 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: This interrogation of Origen's legacy for the 21st Century returns to old questions built upon each other over eighteen centuries of Origen scholarship-problems of translation and transmission, positioning Origen in the histories of philosophy, theology, and orthodoxy, and defining his philological and exegetical programmes. The essays probe the more reliable sources for Origen's thought by those who received his legacy and built on it. They focus on understanding how Origen's legacy was adopted, transformed and transmitted looking at key figures from the fourth century through the Reformation. A section on modern contributions to the understanding of Origen embraces the foundational contributions of Huet, the twentieth century movement to rehabilitate Origen from his status as a heterodox teacher, and finally, the identification in 2012 of twenty-nine anonymous homilies on the Psalms in a codex in Munich as homilies of Origen. Equally important has been the investigation of Origen's historical, cultural, and intellectual context. These studies track the processes of appropriation, assimilation and transformation in the formation and transmission of Origen's legacy. Origen worked at interpreting Scripture throughout his life. There are essays addressing general issues of hermeneutics and his treatment of groups of books from the Biblical canon in commentaries and homilies. Key points of his theology are also addressed in essays that give attention to the fluid environment in which Origen developed his theology. These essays open important paths for students of Origen in the 21st century.

Book Synopsis The Place of Judas Iscariot in Christology by : Anthony Cane
Download or read book The Place of Judas Iscariot in Christology written by Anthony Cane and published by Taylor & Francis. This book was released on 2017-07-05 with total page 220 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Exploring the significance of Judas Iscariot for Christian theology and the difficult issues surrounding Judas, Anthony Cane shows that focusing on the tension between providential and tragic interpretations of Judas in the New Testament and in subsequent writing about Judas, is the key to understanding his significance. Building on the work of Karl Barth and Donald MacKinnon, Cane's argument sheds light not simply on the way Judas is understood, but on the way Jesus and the whole economy of salvation are understood. This book also highlights implications for the way in which issues relating to anti-Semitism and evil and suffering are most effectively explored.
Book Synopsis Women, the Family, and Policy by : Esther Ngan-ling Chow

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: The authors highlight how structural circumstances in countries with various degrees of industrialization are associated with specific policies. The analyses of womens experiences reveal the variety of ways in which private patriarchy in families combines with public patriarchy in economies and states to create a system of domination which subordinates women. The authors detail how gender is constructed under specific political, economic, and cultural circumstances, and seek to understand how state policies with differing sensitivities to womens issues have produced mixed outcomes for women and their families in the process of economic development.
Book Synopsis Early Christian Authors on Samaritans and Samaritanism by : Reinhard Pummer
Download or read book Early Christian Authors on Samaritans and Samaritanism written by Reinhard Pummer and published by Mohr Siebeck. This book was released on 2002 with total page 550 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Samaritanism is an outgrowth of Early Judaism that has survived until today. Its origin as a separate religious entity can be traced back to the 2nd/1st centuries B.C.E. Samaritans were found not only in their core-area in and around Shechem-Neapolis (modern Nablus) and on neighboring Mount Gerizim, but also in other parts of Palestine as well as in various other Mediterranean countries. Oppression at the hand of Jews, Christians and Muslims decimated the Samaritan population and obliterated all Samaritan manuscripts written prior to the 10th/11th centuries C.E. For the early period of Samaritanism we must therefore rely on Christian authors.Reinhard Pummer edits Christian Greek and Latin texts about Samaritans and their beliefs and practices, dating from the second century C.E. to the Arab conquests. The passages are quoted in their original language and translated into English. In addition, they are commented on and analyzed in view of their significance for our knowledge of Samaritanism within the wider framework of early Judaism and Christianity.

Book Synopsis "It is the Spirit that Gives Life" by : Gitte Buch-Hansen
Download or read book "It is the Spirit that Gives Life" written by Gitte Buch-Hansen and published by Walter de Gruyter. This book was released on 2010-05-27 with total page 519 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Since Origen and Chrysostom, John’s Gospel has been valued as the most spiritual among the New Testament writings. Although Origen recognizes the Stoic character of John’s statement that “God is pneuma” (4:24), an examination of the gospel in light of Stoic physics has not yet been carried out. Instead the Johannine spirit has been absorbed into the Word and lost its distinct character as physical mediator between the divine and humane spheres. Combining her insight into Stoic physics and ancient physiology, the author situates her thesis in the major discussions of modern Johannine scholarship and demonstrates new solutions to well-known problems.
Book Synopsis The Power We Leave on the Table by : Rick Hertless
Download or read book The Power We Leave on the Table written by Rick Hertless and published by Xulon Press. This book was released on 2010-02 with total page 276 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: The Power We Leave on the Table is a book that looks into the power of Christianity available to those who walk in the saving grace of Jesus Christ. The power of the Holy Spirit is available to all who call on the name of Jesus. Nevertheless, the power given to his followers at his ascension is denied and rejected daily by believers. Many have decided not to "pick up" the gifts that have been freely given to those who follow Jesus Christ. God has given all believers gifts to complete the task in which they are called. 1 Corinthians 12:11 says, "All these (gifts) are the work of one and the same Spirit, and he gives them to each one, just as he determines (NIV)." God does not want his children to be ignorant about the blessings he has supplied to those who are willing to accept them. However, his power goes beyond the gifts. There is abundance in every breath of every believer who lives for Christ. His abundance resides in his saving grace and is manifested to those in whom he loves through his power. It is up to you to decide to use his power and learn of his greatest gift of salvation through Christ. Accept the wealth of Jesus as we learn to pick up The Power We Leave on the Table.

Download or read book Jewish Church written by O. P. Lévy and published by Lexington Books. This book was released on 2021-01-28 with total page 435 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: The idea of a Jewish Church has been banned from the Christian horizon for almost two millennia. But things are changing. Since the middle of the 70s the Messianic Jewish movement has strived to build an ecclesial home for all Jewish believers in Christ. This new phenomenon brings to life issues that had disappeared since the first centuries of the Church. What does it mean to be a Jew in the Church? Should there be a distinction between Jews and non-Jews among believers in Christ? Is such a distinction compatible with the unity of the whole Body of Christ so ardently preached by Paul? What lifestyle should this Church promote? In his various works, Mark Kinzer, a prominent Messianic Jewish theologian, has attempted to provide substantial answers to these questions. Antoine Lévy is a Dominican priest. With Kinzer, Lévy has launched the “Helsinki Consultation”, a cross-denominational gathering of Jewish theologians. In Jewish Church: A Catholic Approach to Messianic Judaism, Lévy examines Kinzer’s positions critically, bringing forward an alternative vision of what a “Jewish Church” could and should be. This is only the beginning of what promises to be a fascinating discussion.
