THE NEW TESTAMENT INTRODUCTION: VOL. II - LUKE AND ACTS

Author: PAUL NADIM TARAZI #: 10049
The title "Introduction" does not do justice to the contents of this volume, for while it provides the historical background and overview expected of an introduction, it also delves into details one would expect to find only in a full-fledged commentary.

MARK—NEW TESTAMENT (VOL II) (ANCIENT CHRISTIAN COMMENTARY ON SCRIPTURE)

Author: #: 10051
The early church valued the Gospel of Mark for its preservation of the apostolic voice and gospel narrative of Peter. Yet the early church fathers very rarely produced sustained commentary on Mark. This brisk-paced and robust little Gospel, so much enjoyed by modern readers, was overshadowed in the minds of the fathers by the magisterial Gospels of Matthew and John.

ANCIENT CHRISTIAN COMMENTARY—NEW TESTAMENT (VOL VII)

Author: #: 10052
Paul's letters to the Corinthian church have left a mark on Christian Scripture in a way that could never have been predicted. Here the pastoral issues of a first-century Christian community in what Chrysostom identified as "still the first city in Greece" stand out in bold relief. How was a community shaped by the cross to find its expression in a city that Chrysostom knew to be "full of orators and philosophers" and that "prided itself . . . above all on its great wealth"? How was church unity to be maintained in a setting where prominent believers, bending truth and morality to their own advantage, divided the body of Christ? Here lay the challenge for the apostle Paul. And as the apostle writes, the fathers lean over his shoulder, marveling and commenting on his pastoral wisdom.

ANCIENT CHRISTIAN COMMENTARY&MDASNEW TESTAMENT (VOL IX)

Author: #: 10053
While patristic commentary on St. Paul's shorter letters—Colossians, 1-2 Thessalonians, the Pastorals and Philemon—was not so extensive as that on his longer letters, certain passages in these letters proved particularly important in doctrinal disputes and practical church matters. Pivotal in controversies with the Arians and the Gnostics, the most commented-upon christological text amid these letters was Colossians 1:15-20, where Jesus is declared "the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of all creation."

MATTHEW 14-28—NEW TESTAMENT (VOL IB) (ANCIENT CHRISTIAN COMMENTARY ON SCRIPTURE)

Author: #: 10054
The Gospel of Matthew stands out as a favorite biblical text among patristic commentators. The patristic commentary tradition on Matthew begins with Origen's pioneering twenty-five-volume commentary on the First Gospel in the mid-third century. In the Latin-speaking West, where commentaries did not appear until about a century later, the first commentary on Matthew was written by Hilary of Poitiers in the mid-fourth century.

ANCIENT CHRISTIAN COMMENTARY—OLD TESTAMENT (VOL III)

Author: #: 10055
From its inception the church has always had a Bible—the Jewish Scriptures. But Christians have not read these Scriptures in the same way the Jews did. They have read them in the light of what God did in Jesus the Christ. Thus the Jewish Scriptures became for Christian readers the Old Testament.

ANCIENT CHRISTIAN COMMENTARY—OLD TESTAMENT (VOL XIV)

Author: #: 10056
"And beginning with Moses and all the prophets, [the risen Jesus] interpreted to them in all the scriptures the things concerning himself." (Lk 24:27)

LUKE—NEW TESTAMENT (VOL III) (ANCIENT CHRISTIAN COMMENTARY ON SCRIPTURE)

Author: #: 10057
For the church fathers the Gospels did not serve as resources for individual analysis and academic study. They were read and heard and interpreted within the worshiping community. They served as sources for pastoral counsel and admonition for those who were committed to the Way. Although Matthew and John were generally the preferred Gospels, Luke, because of his particular interests and unique contributions, took pride of place during the Christmas season as well as during Easter and other major feasts.

ANCIENT CHRISTIAN COMMENTARY—NEW TESTAMENT (VOL XI)

Author: #: 10060
Because the Catholic Epistles focus on Orthodox faith and morals, the Fathers drew on them as a means of defense against the rising challenge of heretics. This factor gave these letters a freshness and relevance to conditions in the fourth and fifth centuries that might otherwise seem surprising. Many of the Fathers unabashedly saw in them anticipatory attacks on Marcion and strong defenses against the Arians. They did so quite naturally because in their view truth was eternal and deviations from it had existed from the beginning.

ANCIENT CHRISTIAN COMMENTARY—OLD TESTAMENT (VOL I)

Author: #: 10062
The rich tapestry of the creation narrative in the early chapters of Genesis proved irresistible to the thoughtful, reflective minds of the church fathers. Within them they found the beginning threads from which to weave a theology of creation, fall and redemption. Following their mentor, the apostle Paul, they explored the profound significance of Adam as a type of Christ, the second Adam.
