According To The Scriptures

Book by David Allen, According To The Scriptures Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download According To The Scriptures books, "If all you know is the NT, you do not know the NT" - so the late NT scholar Martin Hengel is reputed to have said. This book, a study of the way in the NT writers utilized the Jewish Scriptures in order to describe, articulate and evaluate the death of Jesus, takes Hengel at his word. What Old Testament texts are quoted in the New Testament, how are they used and what might such analysis mean for the (contemporary) reader? Focusing in particular on the passion narratives in the Synoptic Gospels, According to the Scriptures seeks to engage with these questions. It will provide a useful new framework for thinking about why the early Church understood Jesus' death in terms of the Scriptures, what difference that understanding made, and what relevance that might have for us as we seek to make sense of the death of Jesus.

According To The Scriptures

Book by Paul Matthews Van Buren, According To The Scriptures Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download According To The Scriptures books, This book calls for a reevaluation of the Old Testament and its role in the Church. It is written out of the conviction that the church needs to claim the Old Testament as its own but also to grant the legitimacy of the Jewish claim on Israel's sacred Scriptures. The author is concerned to debunk several ideas, including the popular notions that Paul was the real inventor of Christianity; that a great gulf exists between the Old Testament and the New Testament; that the early Christians used the Old Testament to prove their already established belief in Jesus; and that Christianity is less credible or valuable if it is seen to depend on Jewish traditions. Van Buren's starting point is an exploration of the meaning and origin of the early Christian confession, "Christ died for our sins in accordance with the scriptures"-particularly the last part of the confession. Van Buren argues that the wording of this early, pre-Pauline gospel confession was the result of a creative application of early Jewish interpretations of scripture, especially of the Binding of Isaac story in Genesis 22. Christians need to affirm the legitimacy of their understanding Christ in light of the Old Testament, argues van Buren, but they also need to grant the legitimacy of the Jewish reading of scripture. The interpretive traditions of both religious communities-Judaism and Christianity-need to be respected. Clearly and elegantly written, this book represents a sensitive ecumenical effort at fostering Jewish-Christian dialogue: a book that both Jews and Christians can read with profit.

According To The Scriptures

Book by J. W. Rogerson, According To The Scriptures Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download According To The Scriptures books, If something is commanded in the Bible, the command must surely be obeyed if we are to be true to the Bible. This is what many people think, especially when they hear representatives of churches today arguing about moral issues. In fact, the matter is not as simple as this, and at various periods of history, churches have had quite differing views on how biblical commandments should be understood, and on whether they can be applied to their situations, if at all. The book falls into two sections. The first sketches the history of the use of the Bible in social, moral and political questions from the use of the Old Testament in the New Testament, to the present day. The second part looks at some case studies, including human and sexual relationships, life issues, attitudes to lawful authority, and the changing of interest.

Truth According To The Scriptures

Book by David J. Tierce, Truth According To The Scriptures Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Truth According To The Scriptures books, Truth . . . According to the Scriptures is an easy-to-read way to examine some basic Bible teachings while also providing study outlines for further personal study. The nine topics addressed in this book are presented in a clear and straightforward manner pointing the reader, not to the ways of man or religion, but directly to the truth of God’s Word. The book of Isaiah proclaims that God’s thoughts and ways are far above any man’s, and it is with that idea in mind that great lengths have been taken to let the author of the Bible, God, explain His truths with His own words rather than use the ideas or thoughts of man. God proclaims in 2 Peter 1:20 that His Word is not open to any “private interpretation”; it says what it means and means what it says, and it doesn’t say one thing to one person and something else to another. The focus of this book is to examine Bible truths as they actually are, not in a twisted or perverted way that man or religion sometimes tries to interpret them to be. It would do us all good to stop making the Bible say what we want it to say and just accept God’s truth . . . according to the scriptures.

Who Is Satan

Book by Joseph F. Kelly, Who Is Satan Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Who Is Satan books, How does the Bible's teaching on the devil square with psychology and other modern scientific disciplines that seem to have driven Satan into the realm of myth? Why does 666 signify the devil? Is Satan the Antichrist or does that term refer to a human? Popular media has combined a number of diverse traditions, distorting Christian teaching and tradition about Satan and also occasionally distorting common sense. Kelly introduces the reader to what the Bible actually says about Satan and other evil biblical figures.
