In this book, Veselin Kesich examines the resurrection faith of the early Church, proceeding from an analysis of the idea of resurrection in pre-Christian and New Testament times, moving through the central events themselves and exploring their significance for all creation at all times.
This book offers a fresh look at the way Eastern patristic writers used Scripture in elaborating what would become the body of Orthodox doctrine.
A synthesis of doctrine, spirituality, and biblical scholarship applied to the similarities and differences between old and new revelation in the Bible.
This new edition has two completely new sections: one titled "The Rise and Formation of Scripture" and one titled "Toward the Gospel." Together they clarify the relationship between the Old and New Testaments and will help every reader understand why the New Testament cannot be understood except in the light of the Old.
Fr. Tarazi provides essential background un the language, history, and culture of those who first wrote, used, and edited these psalms, leading to sometimes surprising new understandings of common terms such as "king," "God," "Lord," and "righteousness." Along the way he explains how and why the psalms were used in prayer, and what we can learn about prayer itself.
