Genre: Religion

The Bible, as we hold it today, is esteemed by many religious institutions and especially Conservative Christians to be the inspired, inerrant Word of God. This doctrinal position affirms that the Bible is unlike all other books or collections of works in that it is free of error due to having been “given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: that the man of God may be perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good works” (2 Tim. 3:16, 17). While no other text can claim this same unique authority, Apocryphal and Pseudepigraphal literature such as contained in this volume of The Researchers Library of Ancient Texts (Volume One—The Apocrypha: Includes the Books of Enoch, Jasher, and Jubilees), provides literature that often precedes or follows the chronology of biblical texts, which frequently are used or assigned as supplemental works within academic settings to help students and scholars discover or better understand cultural and historical context within the Word of God. Whether or not the information contained in the apocryphal literature is entirely precise—as is the canon of Scripture—these ancient texts provide commentators’ valuable insight into what many ancient Jews and early Christians believed when, “God, who at sundry times and in divers manners spake in time past unto the fathers by the prophets” (Heb. 1:1). The Researchers Library of Ancient Texts is therefore intended to be a supplemental resource for assisting serious researchers and students in the study of the Bible and Bible times. Contained in this volume: The Book of Enoch, The Book of Jasher, The Book of Jubilees, 1 Esdras, 2 Esdras, 1 Maccabees, 2 Maccabees, Tobias, Judith, Wisdom, Sirach, Baruch, Susanna, Prayer of Azariah, Prayer of Manasseh, Bel and the Dragon, and Laodiceans.

Genre: Reference

The Septuagint (or "LXX", or "Greek Old Testament") is a translation of the Hebrew Old Testament and certain Apocrypha, which was sponsored according to tradition in the late 3rd century BC by Ptolemy II Philadelphus, the king of Ptolemaic Egypt (283 BC to 246 BC). The Greek translation was originally created for use by the Alexandrian Jews who were fluent in Koine Greek, but not in Hebrew. Thus the Septuagint is sometimes called the "Apostle's Bible" and the one that Jesus and his disciples would have had access to. It is quoted in the New Testament by writers such as the Apostle Paul, and remained the Scripture of use by the Apostolic Fathers. The translation of the Septuagint into English by Sir Lancelot C. L. Brenton was first published in 1851 and was based primarily upon the Codex Vaticanus, one of the oldest extant manuscripts of the Greek Bible. It remains the standard of use by many scholars and students of Scripture and history. Contained in this volume (The Researchers Library of Ancient Texts Volume III): The English Translation of the Greek Septuagint Bible, Including the Apocrypha.

While no other text can claim this same unique authority, the Apostolic Fathers included in this volume (also called the Ante-Nicene Fathers), covers the Early Christian writings from the beginning of Christianity until the promulgation of the Nicene Creed at the First Council of Nicaea, which was convened in Bithynia by the Roman Emperor Constantine I in AD 325. As such, writings contained in this volume of The Researchers Library of Ancient Texts (Volume Two: The Apostolic Fathers: Includes Clement, Anthenagorus, Mathetes, Polycarp, Ignatius, Barnabas, Papias, Justin Martyr, and Irenaeus), provides literature that follows the chronology of New Testament texts, which frequently are used or assigned as supplemental works within academic settings to help students and scholars discover or better understand cultural and historical context of the early Christian Church. These ancient texts provide commentators valuable insight into what many ancient Jews and early Christians believed when, "God, who at sundry times and in divers manners spake in time past unto the fathers by the prophets" (Heb. 1:1).

Das Thomas Evangelium

Author: Reinhard Nordsieck
Publisher:
ISBN: 3788718676
Release Date: 2004-01
Genre: Gospel of Thomas (Coptic Gospel)

Der vorliegende Kommentar des 1945 in Nag Hammadi entdeckten Thomas-Evangeliums besteht aus einer Einleitung, Kriterien für die Erforschung des historischen Jesus sowie einer ausführlichen Kommentierung aller 114 Logien des Thomas-Evangeliums. Er tritt der Behauptung einer gnostischen Herkunft der Logien entgegen und widerspricht auch der Abhängigkeit des Thomas-Evangeliums von den Synoptikern oder auch dem Johannes-Evangelium. Das Thomas-Evangelium enthält vielmehr gegenüber den Synoptikern und dem Johannes-Evangelium selbstständige Traditionen und gehört in den Raum eines frühen Judenchristentums.

SANDITON

Author: Jane Austen
Publisher:
ISBN: 3423126663
Release Date: 1999
Genre:

Bei Jane Austen geht es wie immer ums Ehestiften, diesmal ist der Schauplatz der idyllische englische Badeort Sanditon. Als Charlotte Heywood dort eintrifft, gerät sie sofort in eine turbulente Gesellschaft. Als Jane Austen 1817 starb, war der Roman unvollendet. 1975 unternahm es die Austen-Verehrerin Marie Dobbs, die Handlung kunstvoll fortzuspinnen, und brachte auf so unterhaltsame Weise etliche glückliche Paare zusammen, daß es schwerfällt zu glauben, Jane Austen habe nicht selbst den Schlußpunkt gesetzt.

Geschichte des Peloponnesischen Krieges

Author: Thukydides
Publisher: Walter de Gruyter
ISBN: 9783110361506
Release Date: 1993-01-01
Genre: Philosophy

Thukydides ist der Begründer der politischen Geschichtsschreibung. Er war ungefähr 30 Jahre alt, als 431 v. Chr. der Peloponnesische Krieg ausbrach, jener jahrzehntelage Machtkampf zwischen Athen und Sparta, an dessen Ende Athen - und mit ihm die Demokratie - gegen das spartanische Königtum unterlag. Thukydides hatte hier sein Lebensthema gefunden. Doch bevor er zum Chronisten der Kämpfe zwischen den beiden Blöcken wurde, hat er selbst an ihnen teilgenomnmen. Im Jahre 425/4 v. Chr. bekleidete er das hohe militärische Amt des Strategen, bis ein Misserfolg zu seiner Verbannung führte. Er lebte daraufhin 20 Jahre im Exil und kehrte erst nach Kriegsende nach Athen zurück.

The Impact of the Book of Enoch on Christianity and Other Religions

Author: Dr. Randy Delp
Publisher: AuthorHouse
ISBN: 9781524686178
Release Date: 2017-03-31
Genre: Reference

Considered an expert about the Book of Enoch, Dr. Randy Delp has put together an analysis of this ancient book to explain why Jesus and the New Testament writers were not only influenced by the Book of Enoch, they quoted its contents, cited its texts and labeled it Scripture. The teachings of Enoch have influenced every major monotheistic religion including Islam, Judaism, Christianity and Zoroastrianism and vestiges can be found in Hinduism, and other ancient religions. The footprints of his teachings are seen throughout every generation and the finality of his message has yet to be fulfilled. Enoch’s influence in astronomy, history, religion, education, and para-psychology has forged how society thinks today. It is significant to note that the prophet named Enoch, who was born seven generations after Adam and Eve, may be the only person in history who has had a positive effect on every major and minor religion, while nothing negative is ever spoken about him.

Handbchlein Der Moral

Author: Epiktet
Publisher: Createspace Independent Publishing Platform
ISBN: 1542648491
Release Date: 2017-01-19
Genre:

Epiktet (50-138) war ein antiker Philosoph. Er z�hlt zu den einflussreichsten Vertretern der sp�ten Stoa. Als Sklave gelangte Epiktet nach Rom, wo er in Kontakt mit stoischen Lehren kam und auch selbst zu unterrichten begann. Aus Rom vertrieben begr�ndete er in Nikopolis eine Philosophenschule, an der er bis zu seinem Tod lehrte. Da Epiktet selbst keine Werke verfasste, ist seine Philosophie nur in den Schriften seines Sch�lers Arrian �berliefert, der seine Vorlesungen aufzeichnete. Arrian fertigte einen Auszug (Epitome) aus den Lehrgespr�chen, das sogenannte Handb�chlein, an. Die Abhandlung besch�ftigt sich vor allem mit praktischer Philosophie. Nicht theoretische �berlegungen, sondern Leitgedanken f�r eine an ethischen Kriterien orientierte Lebensf�hrung werden vermittelt.

While no other text can claim this same unique authority, these select works by key preachers of the Great Awakenings (the evangelical and revitalization movements that swept Protestant Europe and British America, especially the American colonies during the 1730s through the 1800s) reflect the theology and actions of those devout churchmen whose powerful preaching and teaching created a deep sense of conviction regarding morality and the need for personal revelation and salvation by no other than Jesus Christ. The Researchers Library of Ancient Texts - Volume 5 is intended to be a supplemental resource for assisting serious researchers and students in the study of the Bible and the Church age.
