Download and read online The Letters of the Apostle Paul in PDF and EPUB “Five times I received at the hands of the Jews the forty lashes less one. Three times I was beaten with rods. Once I was stoned. Three times I was shipwrecked.” Who was this man who had undergone such tribulations? For centuries, Paul’s letters have been read in a theological context, forming as they do part of the foundation of the Christian faith. This book, however, maintains that it is important to read these letters in a different way, to learn to analyse them in their original, contemporary context. It scrutinizes Paul’s letters, showing that the texts as we now have them form a kind of palimpsest in which other layers and text fragments are visible. It also studies Paul’s views on the resurrection, investigating Paul’s idea of the son of God and the sermon in Athens with whetted-knife precision. In addition, it deals with the alleged letter to the Romans and considers the trial of Paul and his burial place in Rome. In such ways, it poses questions about the authenticity of the Pauline letters and comes up with surprising answers. As such, it represents a fascinating study that breaks with many traditional beliefs and creates space for radical new insights.

Download and read online Dictionary of Biblical Imagery in PDF and EPUB A Christianity Today 1999 Book of the Year! Every reader of the Bible has encountered the powerful, comforting and sometimes puzzling imagery of Scripture. These concrete pictures with their hidden force have struck sharp and lasting impressions on our minds. Their imprint has etched itself on the language and grammar of Christian faith and Western culture. Why then do traditional Bible dictionaries and reference works offer so little help to explorers of the Bible's galaxy of verbal pictures? They excel in describing the climate, borders and location of Galilee or Sinai. But they are often blind to the artistic expressions and deaf to the musical meanings that echo from within the world of the biblical text. The Dictionary of Biblical Imagery is the first contemporary reference work dedicated to exploring the images, symbols, motifs, metaphors and literary patterns found in the Bible. More than that, it examines the Bible's universal archetypes or master images--including the plot motifs and character types that recur throughout life, literature and the Bible. This unique dictionary explores the dazzling variety in which the Word of God comes dressed in clothes of everyday life. It traces the trail of images from Eden to the New Jerusalem. It captures the plotted patterns of biblical narrative. It surveys the imaged texture of each book of the Bible. In short, The Dictionary of Biblical Imagery is an inviting, enlightening and indispensable companion to the reading, study, contemplation and enjoyment of the Bible.
