Life among Christians can be great. But let's face it - it can also be exasperating! The joys of fellowship too often give way to division and debate - arguments over such things as the correct form of worship and the place of the charismatic gifts. In 1 Corinthians we see Christianity not as it was meant to be but as it often is. Yet we also find practical advice for overcoming the challenges of life together. This revised Lifebuilder Bible Study features additional questions for starting group discussions and for meeting God in personal reflection, together with expanded leader's notes and an extra "Now or Later" section in each study.

The African Memory of Mark - Reassessing Early Church Tradition (Paperback): Thomas C Oden The African Memory of Mark - Reassessing Early Church Tradition (Paperback)
Thomas C Oden
R485 R394 Discovery Miles 3 940 Save R91 (19%) Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

We often regard the author of the Gospel of Mark as an obscure figure about whom we know little. Many would be surprised to learn how much fuller a picture of Mark exists within widespread African tradition, tradition that holds that Mark himself was from North Africa, that he founded the church in Alexandria, that he was an eyewitness to the Last Supper and Pentecost, that he was related not only to Barnabas but to Peter as well and accompanied him on many of his travels. In this provocative reassessment of early church tradition, Thomas C. Oden begins with the palette of New Testament evidence and adds to it the range of colors from traditional African sources, including synaxaries (compilations of short biographies of saints to be read on feast days), archaeological sites, non-Western historical documents and ancient churches. The result is a fresh and illuminating portrait of Mark, one that is deeply rooted in African memory and seldom viewed appreciatively in the West.

Acts (Paperback): Mikeal C Parsons Acts (Paperback)
Mikeal C Parsons
R448 Discovery Miles 4 480 Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

In "Acts," part of the eighteen-volume Paideia commentary series, leading biblical scholar Mikeal Parsons gleans fresh theological insight into Acts by attending carefully to the cultural and educational context from which it emerges.

Paideia commentaries explore how New Testament texts form Christian readers by:
- Attending to the ancient narrative and rhetorical strategies the text employs
- Showing how the text shapes theological convictions and moral habits
- Commenting on the final, canonical form of each New Testament book
- Focusing on the cultural, literary, and theological settings of the text
- Making judicious use of maps, photos, and sidebars in a reader-friendly format

"Parsons presents a masterful exposition both of the myriad strategies whereby the author of Acts attempted to persuade his original audience and of the ways in which this ancient book continues to speak powerfully to Christian faith in our own day. Readers will find here a treasure trove of insights into Hellenistic rhetorical conventions and their usage in Acts."--John A. Darr, Boston College

"Parsons's commentary on Acts takes an overtly rhetorical approach to the text while not losing sight of its important theological implications. I commend him for focusing his commentary on the final form of the text as it was read by the first readers and recognizing the author as a theologian in his own right. Parsons also provides useful supplemental comments to aid those unfamiliar with the terminology of ancient rhetoric. A number of Parsons's assumptions and conclusions will no doubt prompt significant further discussion."--Stanley E. Porter, McMaster Divinity College

"Parsons deftlyshepherds the reader through Acts of the Apostles in this rich and illuminating commentary. This book will be an ideal companion for students navigating Acts for the first time and a helpful resource for seasoned Acts scholars."--William Sanger Campbell, The College of St. Scholastica

"Mikeal Parsons has been on the forefront of reading the Lukan writings with strategies that combine the best of ancient literary criticism with social-world analyses and socio-rhetorical expertise with biblical-theological acumen. His "Acts" Paideia commentary is his most recent integrative "tour de force"!"--David P. Moessner, University of Dubuque Theological Seminary and University of Pretoria

Carl R Holladay
R1,407 R1,058 Discovery Miles 10 580 Save R349 (25%) Shipped within 7 - 11 working days

Highly respected scholar Carl R. Holladay offers an in-depth critical commentary on the book of Acts in this new work from the acclaimed New Testament Library series. Holladay offers a theological, contextual, and literary interpretation, paying attention to Acts as a rich narrative that accounts for the development of the early Christian church. He sees Luke's literary style as an expression of its theological purpose. Holladay writes, "Convinced that Jesus' life and death and the emergence of the early Christian movement occurred under divine guidance and continued the biblical story by fulfilling God's ancient promises, Luke decided to incorporate them into a grandly conceived narrative told in a dignified yet dramatic style. Acts reflects the close relationship between medium and message, yet it also illustrates how the medium is the message." Holladay's commentary is theologically rich and steeped in narrative analysis that understands the high level of literary style as an expression of the theological content and the telling of the Christian origin. The New Testament Library series offers authoritative commentary on every book and major aspect of the New Testament, providing fresh translations based on the best available ancient manuscripts, critical portrayals of the historical world in which the books were created, careful attention to their literary design, and a theologically perceptive exposition of the biblical text. The contributors are scholars of international standing. The editorial board consists of C. Clifton Black, Princeton Theological Seminary; M. Eugene Boring, Brite Divinity School; and John T. Carroll, Union Presbyterian Seminary.

Healing Wisdom of Mary Magdalene - Esoteric Secrets of the Fourth Gospel (Paperback): Jack Angelo Healing Wisdom of Mary Magdalene - Esoteric Secrets of the Fourth Gospel (Paperback)
Jack Angelo
R287 R184 Discovery Miles 1 840 Save R103 (36%) Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

The discovery and translation of the Gnostic Gospels have revealed Mary Magdalene to be a gifted visionary teacher and the best qualified disciple to lead the Jesus movement following his death. Yet, according to most scholars, only a few fragments of her actual teachings have survived. Sharing more than 20 years of research, inspired by a profound experience at the cave in southern France where Mary Magdalene is reputed to have spent her final years, Jack Angelo reveals that the Fourth Gospel of the New Testament, traditionally attributed to John, is actually a direct transcription of Mary Magdalene's oral teachings. He explains how the Fourth Gospel was recast by more conservative members of the Jesus movement, such as Peter and Andrew, to hide Mary's authorship and suppress her role as head disciple. Delving deeply into the many layers of meaning within the "Gospel of Signs"--the first 11 chapters of the Fourth Gospel which describe seven of Jesus' miracles--he shows how Mary's teachings outline seven key steps for personal transformation and profound healing. For example, the sixth sign describes the shamanic healing of a blind man when Jesus spits on clay and smears the paste over the man's eyes. Angelo explains how the deeper meaning of this sign is about perceiving with the "eyes of the heart." Beyond the beauty and simplicity of Mary's wisdom for personal transformation and healing, Angelo also shows how Mary's heart-centered teachings embody the resurgence of feminine energy that is vitally needed to restore balance to the psyche and health of humanity as well as to Earth.

Numerous variations in the manuscripts of the New Testament mean that differences occur in printed editions of the Greek and consequently in the way scholars, theologians and translators interpret the scriptures. Textual criticism is thus a vital discipline in assisting those who read, study and edit the New Testament.

A Common Written Greek Source for Mark and Thomas (Hardcover, New): John Horman A Common Written Greek Source for Mark and Thomas (Hardcover, New)
John Horman
R1,472 R1,130 Discovery Miles 11 300 Save R342 (23%) Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

This book uncovers an early collection of sayings, called N, that are ascribed to Jesus and are similar to those found in the Gospel of Thomas and in Q, a document believed to be a common source, with Mark, for Matthew and Luke. In the process, the book sheds light on the literary methods of Mark and Thomas. A literary comparison of the texts of the sayings of Jesus that appear in both Mark and Thomas shows that each adapted an earlier collection for his own purpose. Neither Mark nor Thomas consistently gives the original or earliest form of the shared sayings; hence, Horman states, each used and adapted an earlier source. Close verbal parallels between the versions in Mark and Thomas show that the source was written in Greek. Horman's conclusion is that this common source is N.

This proposal is new, and has implications for life of Jesus research. Previous research on sayings attributed to Jesus has treated Thomas in one of two ways: either as an independent stream of Jesus sayings written without knowledge of the New Testament Gospels and or as a later piece of pseudo-Scripture that uses the New Testament as source. This book rejects both views.

Sabias que Dios tiene un plan maravilloso para ti? Jesus expreso: "Yo he venido para que tengan vida, y para que la tengan en abundancia" (Juan 10:10). Y esto es lo que dice la Biblia, la Palabra de Dios, acerca de estas Buenas Noticias.

1. El Plan de Dios--Paz y Vida
Dios te ama y desea que tu experimentes en plenitud la paz y la vida que solo el puede dar. La Biblia declara: "Porque de tal manera amo Dios al mundo, que ha dado a su Hijo unigenito [Jesucristo] para que todo aquel que en el cree, no se pierda, mas tenga vida eterna" (Juan 3:16).

2. El Problema del Hombre--Separacion
Estar en paz con Dios no es algo que ocurre automaticamente ya que, por naturaleza, el hombre esta separado de Dios. La Biblia dice: "Por cuanto todos pecaron, y estan destituidos de la gloria de Dios" (Romanos 3:23). Y Romanos 6:23 agrega: "Porque la paga del pecado es muerte, mas la dadiva de Dios es vida eterna en Cristo Jesus, Senor nuestro." El hombre ha tratado de remediar esta separacion de muchas maneras... pero sin exito.

3. El Remedio de Dios--La Cruz
El amor de Dios es la union entre Dios y el hombre. Al morir en la cruz y resucitar al tercer dia, Jesucristo sufrio el castigo de nuestros pecados. En la Biblia, el Senor Jesus declara: "Yo soy el camino, y la verdad, y la vida; nadie viene al Padre, sino por mi" (Juan 14:6).

4. La Respuesta del Hombre--Recibir a Jesucristo
El hombre responde al amor de Dios creyendo en el Senor Jesus y recibiendole en su vida. Esto significa aceptar la muerta de Cristo en la cruz como pago por nuestros pecados y recibirle como nuestro Senor y Salvador. La Biblia dice: "Mas a todos los que le recibieron [a Jesucristo], a los que creen en su nombre, les dio potestad de ser hechos hijos de Dios" (Juan 1:12).

La Invitacion:
Arrepentirte de tus pecados, recibir a Jesucristo en tu corazon en un acto de fe y seguirle en obediencia como Senor de tu vida.

Quieres Decirle Si a la Vida? Entonces Haz Esta Oracion:
"Oh Dios, se que soy pecador(a). Me arrepiento de mis pecados. Creo que Jesucristo murio por mis pecados, que resucito de la tumba y que vive para siempre. Abro la puerta de mi corazon y de mi vida, y recibo al Senor Jesus como mi Salvador. Deseo seguirle y que el sea el Senor de mi vida. Gracias por salvarme. En el nombre de Jesus, amen."

Acts of the Apostles and the Rhetoric of Roman Imperialism (Hardcover): Drew W. Billings Acts of the Apostles and the Rhetoric of Roman Imperialism (Hardcover)
Drew W. Billings
R1,781 R1,535 Discovery Miles 15 350 Save R246 (14%) Shipped within 7 - 11 working days

Acts of the Apostles is normally understood as a historical report of events of the early church and serves as the organizing centerpiece of the New Testament canon. In this book, Drew W. Billings demonstrates that Acts was written in conformity with broader representational trends and standards found on imperial monuments and in the epigraphic record of the early second century. Bringing an interdisciplinary approach to a text of critical importance, he compares the methods of representation in Acts with visual and verbal representations that were common during the reign of the Roman emperor Trajan (98-117 CE). Billings argues that Acts adopts the rhetoric of Roman imperialism as articulated in the images and texts from the period. His study bridges the fields of classics, art history, gender studies, Jewish studies, and New Testament studies in exploring how early Christian texts relate to wider patterns in the cultural production of the Roman Empire.

The Common Tradition Behind Synoptic Sayings of Judgment and John's Apocalypse - An Oral Interpretive Tradition of Old... The Common Tradition Behind Synoptic Sayings of Judgment and John's Apocalypse - An Oral Interpretive Tradition of Old Testament Prophetic Material (Paperback)
Paul T. Penley
R643 Discovery Miles 6 430 Shipped within 7 - 11 working days

This is a source-critical investigation of selected portions of the Synoptic Gospels and John's Apocalypse . Paul Penley advances our understanding of the sources used behind the composition of John's Apocalypse by performing a source-critical investigation of selected portions of the Synoptic Gospels and John's Apocalypse . Penley applies specific criteria for compositional influence (shared vocabulary, phrases, grammar, syntax, ideas, and contexts) to multiple portions of the Apocalypse and of the Gospels of Matthew and Luke demonstrating that interpretive traditions controlling the appropriation of OT prophetic material in the Synoptic accounts of Jesus' message of Jerusalem's destruction also gave shape to parts of the message of judgment in John's Apocalypse . It was formerly the Journal for the Study of the New Testament Supplement , a book series that explores the many aspects of New Testament study including historical perspectives, social-scientific and literary theory, and theological, cultural and contextual approaches. The Early Christianity in Context series, a part of JSNTS , examines the birth and development of early Christianity up to the end of the third century CE. The series places Christianity in its social, cultural, political and economic context. European Seminar on Christian Origins and Journal for the Study of the Historical Jesus Supplement are also part of JSNTS .

David E. Fredrickson
R674 Discovery Miles 6 740 Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

The self-emptying of Christ (kenosis) in Philippians 2 has long been the focus of attention by Christian theologians and interpreters of Pauls Christology. David E. Fredrickson sheds dramatic new light on familiar texts by discussing the centuries-old language of love and longing in Greek and Roman epistolary literature, showing that a physics of desire was related to notions of power and dominance. Pauls kenotic Christology challenged not only received notions of the power of the gods but of the very nature of love itself as a component of human society.

Stephen E. Fowl
R334 Discovery Miles 3 340 Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

In this guide Stephen E. Fowl introduces students to both theological fruit and critical issues of the letter to the Ephesians. On the theological front, Fowl shows how Ephesians offers an unparalleled cosmic vision of the significance of the death and resurrection of Jesus, of the role of heavenly powers in the universe, and of how the community of Christians is to engage with those powers. Fowl also opens up the major identity questions Ephesians shows existed for early Christians: how to conceive the relationship of Gentiles with the Jews from among whom their faith emerged, and how to live as a Christian within households ordered on patriarchal lines while not capitulating to patriarchy. On the critical front, Fowl provides an introduction to the key critical questions and issues, such as whether this letter was actually written to a church in Ephesus, and whether Paul the apostle was indeed the author of the letter. Yet, whilst there are demanding linguistic, historical and cultural questions to be answered, Fowl is careful to point out that this should not be done at the expense of reading the text closely and appreciating its meaning and message.

Brian K. Gamel
R648 Discovery Miles 6 480 Shipped within 7 - 11 working days

In the Gospel of Mark, Jesus' arrest, trial and execution ends with the Roman centurion who oversees the death process proclaiming Jesus as God's son. Gamel explores two key questions in relation to this moment: what does the centurion mean when he says that Jesus is God's son, and why does he say it? The confession is not made on the basis of any signs nor from any indication that he perceives Jesus' death as honourable or exemplary. This apparent lack of motivation itself highlights a key Markan theme: that this insight is revealed by an apocalyptic act of God, signalled by the tearing of the temple veil. Thus the confession, which we can understand to be made sincerely and knowledgeably, is the result of an act of God's revelation alone. Gamel explores the theory of Mark depicting a story in which all human characters exhibit varying levels of blindness to the spiritual realities that govern their lives. By making a thorough examination of Mark's Gospel - while placing primary focus on the centurion, the study is unlimited and presents a serious examination of the whole Gospel - Gamel concludes his argument with the point that, at the foot of the cross, this blindness is decisively confronted by God's apocalyptic act. The offer of sight to the centurion demonstrates the reconciliation of God and humanity which are otherwise in Mark's Gospel repeatedly presented as antagonistic spheres. Finally, the fact that revelation is offered to a Gentile highlights the inclusion of the nations into the promises of Israel.
