From index@BIBLEBOOKSUMMARY.txt@ kjv@Revelation:1 REVELATION - This last book of the Bible identifies itself as "the revelation of Jesus Christ", and its author is designated "his servant John" who was exiled to the Greek island of Patmos because of his faith. Traditionally, John is identified with the author of the Fourth Gospel. Addressed to seven historical churches in Asia Minor, the Book of Revelation was written to warn against spiritual indifference and to elicit courage under persecution. Because of the extensive use of symbolism and picturesque imagery, itsinterpretation has posed many problem for the student of the Bible. While recognizing the historical situation (Roman persecution) that elicited this writing, many interpreters look upon it as a prophecy depicting events that were to take place at the end of the age. The ultimate victory of Christ is the dominant theme of this book.
From index@GOOGLESURVEYQUOTES.txt@ index:GOOGLESURVEYQUOTES GoogleSurveyImagination This movement or transference of His image onto or into our own countenance is, I think, largely what Ricoeur is getting at with his use of the term "imagination." If we try to study the scriptures in merely an academic, or historical-critical way, without ever involving ourselves, and hence our own imagination, in the process ofinterpretation, then the meaning of text remains effectively lifeless for us.
From index@GOOGLESURVEYQUOTES.txt@ index:GOOGLESURVEYQUOTES GoogleSurveyViolence We cannot conclude that Christianity teaches violence because of the violent crusades some Christians have waged in the past against Moslem, Jews, and so-called "heretics." Such a method ofinterpretation is wrong, because not all who claim to act in the name of their religion are necessarily following its teachings.
From index@GOOGLEQUOTESISSUES.txt@ BibleDivorce Pastors, teachers, and Christian writers often contribute to the prevailing confusion about divorce and remarriage with their conflictinginterpretation of key Bible passages.
From index@GOOGLEQUOTESISSUES.txt@ BibleDivorce A reason for such conflicting interpretations is that many interpret the Bible more in the light of their experience in dealing with divorce than in the light of their study of what the Bible actually teaches on this subject.
From index@GOOGLEQUOTESISSUES.txt@ BibleDivorce Thisinterpretation may be grammatically possible, but it seems rather unusual because it is based on a rather uncommon inclusive usage of the word parektos, usually translated "except for." This inclusiveinterpretation is based upon what Bruce Vawter calls "linguistic acrobatics," which turns "except" into "even including."16 It must be granted, however, that thisinterpretation does harmonize with the immediate context where Jesus rejects the Mosaic provision for divorce by pointing back to God's original plan for marriage as a permanent covenant.
From index@GOOGLEQUOTESISSUES.txt@ BibleDivorce According to thisinterpretation, Jesus allows for divorce only where a marriage should not have taken place in the first place, namely, within the degrees of prohibited relationships.
From index@GOOGLEQUOTESISSUES.txt@ BibleDivorce His teaching on divorce and remarriage are most significant since they represent the earliest Christianinterpretation and application of Christ's teaching to concrete situations.
