Ben Witherington, Professor of New Testament at Asbury Theological Seminary in Wilmore, Kentucky It's difficult to know how much of what's written in the Gospels is an insight into how Jesus saw himself and how much is comment of other people as to how they saw Jesus. Our regular listeners are, to a person, intelligent enough to know this without reading it, but this notice is for others who might wonder. He wrote a book titled "Prophesies of the Popes."

It became itself--Christianity." 4.) Many of the central elements of the Gospel are diametrically opposed to the Hellenistic mind-set. Wolfson notes the role of Philo, Aristotle, and the Stoics in the definition of terms, as the ways in which these philosophical terms were sometimes put to uses that strained the earlier Biblical categories.

So 'monogenes' describes a relation between God the Father and Jesus Christ the Son as separate Persons of the Godhead. His teaching is consistent with intertestamental Jewish thought on the subject. [92] Fully developed Christian theology goes a step further; on the basis of such texts as Luke 23:43 and Philippians 1:23, it has traditionally been taught that the souls of the dead are received immediately either into heaven or hell, where they will experience a foretaste of their eternal destiny prior to the resurrection. ( Roman Catholicism teaches a third possible location, Purgatory, though this is denied by Protestants and Eastern Orthodox .) "the souls of the righteous, being then made perfect in holiness, are received into the highest heavens, where they behold the face of God, in light and glory, waiting for the full redemption of their bodies.

His human spirit separated from His body (Matthew 27:50; James 2:26). By some this is interpreted to mean that for Barth all our statements about Christ have no correspondence to objective reality. The realization that there is more to reality than the empiricist or positivistic ideals can certainly not hurt those struggling with naturalism, in their attempt to come to a knowledge of God. Many of the signs of devotion are done before a cross, such as crossing oneself, genuflecting, kneeling, devotions to the five wounds, the service of the Stations of the Cross in the Catholic faith.

Heb. 6:1 calls them “the elementary teachings about Christ”. Examines role of Protestant liberal theology in the development of Pan-Africanism, arguing that Africans and African-Americans were not passive recipients of Western theology, but contributed to the development of African theology.

[247] In July 1904 the New York Times obtained a copy of the Quimby manuscript from Sally Wentworth's son, and juxtaposed passages with Science and Health to highlight the similarities. First, a nuance appears when we shift from asking about the object of the death of Jesus to inquire, Who or what needs the death of Jesus?

None of them appeal to dogma or doctrine. Instead, they focus on the incredible lives of the Christians. Theft is wrong (robbery, burglary, wrongful lawsuits, deceptive advertising, etc).
