Description
RLG280 Oct 22 − quiz: first part is identification, definition − second part is short answer − includes lecs until Oct 15 − we move on to Paul and his career − the old testament is called the Hebrew bible, the new testament is called the new testament − scripture of Christianity is made of the old Testament (comes from Hebrew bible, in Greek language, Hebrew bible is in Hebrew, the Jews ofAlexandria have translated the bible into greek) and the new testament (written in Greek, newly formed canon of Christianity). − HEBREW BIBLE WILL BE ON QUIZ − new testament is made up of 27 books, 4 gospels (big chunk is letters of Paul, which are some of the earliest scriptures we have, they affect Christian faith, fundamental) − letters of Paul have changed history repeatedly − Paul − a Jew − hated the new movement of Christians − he was a good Jew, educated in Hebrew bible − felt these new Jews who believed in Jesus were bad − he wrote letters, 13 in new testament − modern scholars believe that only 7 can be attributed to him − letters represent how the original Christian move is − written 20 years after the death of Jesus, immediacy − Paul was never in Roman Palestine, he never met Jesus − he lived where Syria is now − moment of the rode to the massches, the Risen Jesus appeared to him and says why are you persecuting me − important moment in Christian art − most fundamental moment of his life, reaffirmed Christianity and that Jesus was messiah and was mission to convert gentiles (the non jews) − the notion that Jesus is the Messiah and the notion that the Jewish faith is now open to non Jews, these two notions render the Christian movement. Although it grew in the Jew, they turn Christianity into a new faith − felt himself compelled to bring the news of Jesus to the gentiles − he believed that Gods plan for the Jews was also for everyone else in the world − everyone can become a son ofAbraham − 1 Cor chapter 15:3-9 − if you believe in Jesus you become a new existence, a new order of being − very radical − 2 Cor 15:17, says how Christians are a new order of being − the Risen Jesus is the centre of salvation and creation − died in 62 of common era, Jesus died in 33 of comman era − his view of salvation was cosmic, not Jewish or individualistic − world view was Apocalypse − believe in spiritual enthusiasm, start uttering nonsense in front of people − the sharing of a brotherly meal, Eucharist − theophenic experience in which he saw the Risen Jesus (appearance of God) − radical about observing the law − commitment into the inclusion of gentiles into the messianic community without imposing the burden of the Jewish law − to become a christian, you do not need to become a Jew first − nothing more difficult than changing habits of food − food is a fundamental issues − circumcision (sign of covenant) is a fundamental symbol of belonging, do not need to circumcise to become Christianity − abandoning the law in many ways (food and circumcision) − early Christianity had a notion of freedom and equality of all − believed in the spreading of this new religion, spent his life travelling and converting gentiles − he speaks of the church as the body of Christ − marriage as mutual submission − freedom of conscious − cross is a theology in which humanity is redeemed − through redemption that Jesus brought on the cross − the superiority of love over faith and hope − one of the earliest thinkers to highlight the oppression of the law and the contradictory nature of being law abiding − if you are abiding the law, you are being enslaved by it − juxtaposed law and spirituality, law and faith − faith in Jesus is enough to be Christian, do not need to be Jewish − justification by faith, true believer by faith not by deeds − speaks a lot of freedom, must be free from the law and freedom of conscious − charismatic experience, god gives you the gift of being Christian, go into a trance (proved that salvation through Jesus is true) − we Christians are sons of God − through baptism you are included in a form of brotherly inclusion − church is a gathering of brothers, eating together through Jesus − the letter to the Romans of Paul is one of the most fundamental expose of the law − well organized essay
