The New Testament John Drury S Clear, Marvelously Erudite, And Richly Detailed Introduction To The Everyman S Library Edition Of The New Testament Reminds Us Why The King James Version, First Published In 1611, Has Been The Favorite Of English Readers For Centuries Despite A Plethora Of New Translations In The Second Half Of The Twentieth Century, The King James Version Retains Its Power And Appeal Because It Has The Intrinsic Value Of A Classic And Is An Enduring Masterpiece Drury Outlines The Fascinating History Of This Magisterial Translation, Marveling At The Patient Generosity With Which The Translators Sifted Through And Distilled A Century Of Previous Scholarship He Points Out That Their Work Has Endured Not Only Because Of The Astonishing Care They Took To Reflect Faithfully The Syntax Of The Original Hebrew And Greek Which Enabled Them To Dispense With The Densely Entangled Prose Style That Characterized English Writing At The Time But Also Because Of Their Concern To Writers From Milton To Coleridge To George Eliot From The Doctrinal Richness Of The Letters Of St Paul To Those Four Masterpieces Of Storytelling, The Gospels, The New Testament Has Served As A Source Of Inspiration For Centuries.To Quote George Steiner On The Centrality Of The Bible What You Have In Hand Is Not A Book It Is The Book That, Of Course, Is What Bible Means It Is The Book Which, Not Only In Western Humanity, Defines The Concept Of A Text All Our Other Books, However Different In Matter Or Method, Relate, Be It Indirectly, To This Book Of Books All Other Books Are Inhabited By The Murmur Of That Distant Source.

    Lucrurile sfinte au reprezentat ntotdeauna un subiect sensibil pentru opinia public , dar i pentru individ, luat ca atare, deoarece, nu de pu ine ori, acesta se complace ntr o anumit stare atunci c nd religiozitatea i se pare ceva general acceptat ori dimpotriv atunci c nd refuz ini ial dintr o pornire subiectiv i superficial pe care ori o abandoneaz , ori o urmeaz nevoia lui de divinitate.Mie mi vine cu at t mai greu s scriu despre Evanghelii, cu c t tr iesc ntr o societate postmodern n care lumea ideilor pur abstracte este, n genere, umbrit de influen ele care se abat asupra mediului social sau de momentele din realitatea mediat a individului M str duiesc dar nu cred c o s m pot ine de cuv nt s vorbesc deta at, prelu nd vocea unei con tiin e sobre, care judecat a a zisa moralitate antic din perspectiva contemporan at t c t s au exercitat voluntar sau nu influen ele contemporane asupra mea Tema mea de acum e reprezentat exclusiv de mesajul Evangheliilor Asupra Vechiului Testament resimt o aversiune aparte, bazat nu pe antisemitism sunt socialist la nivel de convingeri i simt nevoia s ar t asta , deoarece capacitatea mea hermeneutic destul de antrenat i de mig loas , mi place s cred nu a reu it, de i s a str duit, s intercepteze vreun dram de moralitate sau vreun lucru deta at de anomalie care ipotetic ar fi putut d inui progresului Din contra textele religioase nu au reu it nicic nd s aduc pacea, ci au adus r zboiul Ei, asta cu privire la Vechiul Testament care nu face subiectul acestui eseu Citind Noul Testament, mi s a spulberat i ultima iluzie pe care o aveam asupra vreunei nuan e de moralitate n ceea ce l prive te pe legendarul Iisus Hristos mi ve i repro a c sunt arogant, n mod cert i eu a fi f cut o, dac n a fi citit chestiunea n cauza , dar citit

    A zombie invasion, Jesus healing people with spit, prophet slave girls, wizards When you read the bible as literature and not scripture you will notice that the Bible isn t a very Christian book, and you will realize that Christianity in the generations after Jesus was even diverse than it is to day.The first third of the NT is the gospels, four quite different accounts of the life of Jesus Mark is the story about a foul tempered wizard Luke is the oriental fairy tale of a mystic, interspersed with obscure parables on theology Matthew is about the absolutist who demanded complete subjugation to the Jewish law and turning the other cheek Luke is a mystery story about the identity of Jesus.Q Which is the only gospel where Jesus speaks ethics A Matthew Q What are the ethics of Matthew A Complete subjugation Islam to Jesus s interpretation of the Jewish law Q Wait a minute, Jesus was a tolerant lefty who liked non violence, equality and all that stuff A Cherry picking According to Matthew Jesus was an extremist crack pot who went out of all bounds both in being nice to the poor and in insisting everyone should follow Jewish law to perfection.Q Was Mary the mother of Jesus A Depends on which gospel you read Q Was Jesus born in Bethlehem A Depends on the gospel Q Did Jesus have siblings A Yes Q Was Jesus god A Depends on the gospel Matthew never says Jesus is god Perhaps the Jesus of Mathew is a prophet, or god temporarily possessed Jesus Why would Jesus otherwise cry out My God, my God, why have you abandoned me when he hung on the cross By the way there is a Zombie invasion after Jesus dies in Matthew Leaving the gospels we get to acts of the apostles which is a kind of adventure novel about the religion maker Paul This book should be seen as fiction, as its Paul knows magic and founded dozens of churches The story also features a couple of Greek slave girls who can see in to the future, and a bunch of genuine gentile wizards who are way inferior to Paul After acts we get to the genuine and forged letters by Paul In these we get a fifth account about Jesus Paul never actually met Jesus during his first stay at earth, but Jesus occasional speaks to Paul in visions As you progress through the epistles it becomes clear that the Jesus of Paul is about as similar to the Jesus of Matthew as professor Dumbledore is to Saruman It is like Paul never actually heard the story about Jesus, but only knew it via misunderstood clich s The new testament drops pretty severely in quality after Paul s first few letters, and there is not much to comment upon until we reach the apocalypse, which is in a word strange.

  3. Daniel Polansky says:

    Look, I don t want to start a religious war here, and I m not a believer so it s not like I really have a dog in the fight, but there s just nothing in this to match the sheer aesthetic genius of Genesis, let alone the brutal profundity of Job or Ecclesiastes On the other hand, Matthew 6 17 is kinda my jam.

  4. Mark Stephenson says:

    Jesus is peerless but not friendless Indeed a measure of what makes him without peer is the huge number of good and noble people who have aspired and still aspire to friendship with him And whether friend, enemy or simply stranger to Jesus, what an infinite Friend and Advocate every human being has in the peerless only begotten Son of our Father which is in heaven Since by man came death, by man came also the resurrection of the dead For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ shall all be made alive As I near completing yet another rereading of this marvellous compilation of writings of a few who attained friendship with the Master, I am moved by what he said after his resurrection to his beloved disciple John Behold, I stand at the door and knock if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me and wonder if the most serious malnutrition problem of our time is that so many know not how to or even decline to sup with their Saviour and truest friend.

    I have read through this translation once or twice before It is by Richmond Latti, the noted classicist, and is quite good This time through I read it aloud with Nancy in our morning ingestion of both kinds of caffeine.

    I m not sure I like what breaking the Bible into the Old and New Testaments to boost my yearly read count says about me.I m also not sure I like Paul very much.

  8. Jelena says:

    Well, everyone knows the story Conceived by a substance surrounding and exceeding everything and everyone, a child is born into an impoverished family in a barren land Yet three wise travellers know the child to be the one who is awaited and foretold by the prophecy Many years his whereabouts are uncertain, but he does return grown up and with a reputation that precedes him He returns to the capital in a fashion that makes everyone take notion of him with passion and fire and vigour, committed to change the old ways of the structure and order, always staggering between being smug and being mistreated In a tumbling series of events, he has to face a painful death through someone he considered a close friend Yet again, the one from the prophecy returns once , brought back in a new form by a power far beyond our world.In its core, all the drama is somewhat good actually and shows a fair incorporation of mythologems and archetypes But there can never be an excuse for lobotomising dialogues and a protagonist with facial expressivity and articulation like a bowl of cereals And no matter what anyone says, those Midichlorians are pure rubbish

  9. Ashley says:

    This is the first time I ve read the New Testament straight through I started with the gospels and once I finished I was like, what the heck Let s just keep going Reading through the NT, verse by verse, book by book, puts the tenets of Christianity in a whole new light Too many Christians swallow whatever comes from a pulpit and yes, Fox News counts The only way to get the real story the real truth is to read it The NT is definitely a time consuming read, especially if you re just reading one chapter a night like I did If you re looking for some highlights, here are my favorite books Mark, Philippians, James, 1 Peter, 2 Peter, Acts, Galatians, Ephesians, 1 Corinthians, and Matthew.

  10. Erik Graff says:

    One may remember Latti from high school or a college humanities course as the translator of Homer I did and was surprised to see he had tackled the Christian Scriptures as well.A literary man, not a biblical scholar, Latti s edition is weak when compared to scholarly editions of the text such as the New Oxford RSV , the New Jerusalem Catholic or the New English Anglican The virtue of his work, however, is that he could translate without a committee looking over his shoulder and, so, avoid political considerations Consequently, you will see much reference to believers as slaves of Christ or whatever and none of the less literal servant stuff.
