"Love Your Enemies": Jesus' Love Command in the Synoptic Gospels and in the Early Christian Paraenesis : A History of the Tradition and Interpretatio

Description

From 1971�1974 John Piper attended the Ludwig-Maximilians-Universit�t in M�nchen for doctoral work. In choosing a dissertation topic he decided to explore Jesus�s command in the Synoptic Gospels to love one�s enemies, and its relationship to similar ethical exhortations in the epistles (the Early Christian Paraenesis).Using a �history of traditions� approach, Piper begins by examining each New Testament reference to Jesus�s command in an attempt to place its origin within the broader paraenetic tradition. Piper moves on to survey similar exhortations for enemy love in the environment of the early church, then analyzes this particular command of Jesus within the broader context of his whole message. He investigates the theological significance of Jesus�s love command in the paraenesis and finally concludes by focusing on the Gospel tradition�s use of the command, particularly in Matthew and Luke.First published by Cambridge University Press in the Society for New Testament Studies Monograph Series, this repackaged edition features a new, extensive introduction. A serious work of Christian scholarship by a long-time respected author and pastor, this will be of interest to scholars, students, and lay people who have training in New Testament studies.

We are living in a time when misconduct is often treated by medical doctors and counselors as "disease." Stealing, lying, infidelity, overeating, anger and the like are viewed and medically treated as illnesses. Now a medical doctor esposes the myths, shows how the "Recovery Industry" is unscientific, and offers real hope for those who are addicted.

1 & 2 Corinthians (Geneva Series of Commentaries)

Charles Hodge

0851511856

Description

Hodge's work on 1 and 2 Corinthians forms one of the most significant parts of the plan for a series of popular commentaries on the New Testament which he projected with J. A. Alexander in the 1850s. When the early death of Alexander prevented the completion of the series, the individual volumes were quickly prized in their own right and went through many editions on both sides of the Atlantic.The qualities which have given Hodge s commentaries such a wide and enduring market are readily to be seen. In the first place they are singularly clear. The technicalities of critical opinion, which soon cause a volume to become dated, are not to be found in his pages. His aim was to produce commentaries which learned and unlearned alike could consult with profit. Believing that he was dealing with the words of the Holy Spirit he endeavoured to set out both what those words contain and the effects which their truth should have upon the conscience and life.
