Bible (ASV) NT 07: 1 Corinthians

By: American Standard Version

The First Epistle to the Corinthians is a book of the Bible in the New Testament. 1 Corinthians is a letter from Paul of Tarsus and Sosthenes to the Christians of Corinth, Greece. This epistle contains some of the best-known phrases in the New Testament, including (depending on the translation) without love, I am nothing (13:1) and when I was a child, I spoke as a child, I felt as a child, I thought as a child (13:11). Paul turns the hearts of Christians from selfish factionalism to selfless service of others in love. (Summary from Wikipedia)...

Unknown Life of Jesus Christ, The

By: Nicolas Notovitch

The New Testament describes the life of Jesus, but nothing is said of his life between the ages of 14 and 29. Notovitch, like so many historians, tries to find evidence of what happened to Jesus during those years. He claims to have found the answer in an old document describing the life of Saint Issa. The Unknown Life of Jesus Christ is a copy of the manuscript along with Notovitch's reflections on his findings. It will take you on a journey to an unexpected land, linking people, cultures and religions you wouldn't dream of linking. (Summary by sailormoon)...

Deeper Christian Life, The

By: Andrew Murray

If you were put on trial for being a Christian, would you be convicted? Christians have asked themselves this question, or ones like it, for millennia. In his book, The Deeper Christian Life, Andrew Murray helps us come to grips with those nagging insecurities in our Christian walk. A shallow relationship with God leads us down a road of doubt and insecurities. Can I be forgiven? How can I forgive? Murray tells us that we can go deeper in our relationship with God, and with that deeper relationship comes growing confidence and joy in the gospel. That joy springs from the knowledge of God's grace in forgiving us, and enables us to extend that grace to others in our lives. (Summary from the introduction)...

Unspoken Sermons

By: George MacDonald

George MacDonald was a Scottish author, poet, and Christian minister. In his day he was considered one of the great Victorian authors on par with Dickens, Thackeray, Kipling and the like. His reputation as an author, however, has not fared as well largely because of the ubiquitous and fervent presence of religion throughout his works. MacDonald's theology, though sprinkled liberally throughout his fairly substantial number of books, is perhaps nowhere more palpable than in Unspoken Sermons . These sermons, though by no means amongst the most popular of MacDonald's work, have had theological impact from their first appearance. That influence is probably most notable in C.S. Lewis who called MacDonald my master and of Unspoken Sermons said, My own debt to this book is almost as great as one man can owe to another. More recent influence can be seen in Michael Phillips' 2005 edited edition of some of Macdonald's sermons in which he states: MacDonald saw things differently. Doctrinal formula was nothing to him. His unique perspective takes some getting used to. I find that many passages require two or three readings. But I also find spir...

Bible (PE) NT 12: Epistole pros Collosaes

By: Patriarchike Ekdosi

Γράφοντας αυτό το γράμμα ο Παύλος αποδεικνύει το βαθύ ενδιαφέρον του για την εκκλησία, καθώς προσεύχεται για αυτούς να πληρωθούν με την γνώση του θελήματος του Θεού . Τους προτρέπει να μη εμμένουν τόσο στις αισθήσεις , σε πράγματα δηλαδή που προορίζονται να φθαρούν και σχετίζονται με εντάλματα και ανθρώπινες διδασκαλίες. Να φρονούν και να σκέφτονται όχι τα επίγεια αλλά τα επουράνια τους τονίζει. Δείχνει το μέγεθος της θυσίας , τη διάθεση του Παύλου να πάσχει και έτσι να αναπληροί τα παθήματα που θα υπέφερε ο Χριστός, εάν ήταν εδώ στη γη. για χάρη της εκκλησίας . Δίνει έμφαση στο γεγονός ότι όλη η σοφία και η πνευματική κατανόηση μπορούν να βρεθούν στο Κύριο Ιησού Χριστό . Δίνει πρακτικές κατευθύνσεις για χριστιανική συμπεριφορά . Tους προτρέπει να νεκρώσουν τα έργα της σάρκας, και να ενδυθούν την αγάπη για να φέρουν τους καρπούς της ....

Bible (ASV) 23: Isaiah

By: American Standard Version

The Book of Isaiah (Hebrew: ספר ישעיה‎) is a book of the Bible traditionally attributed to the Prophet Isaiah, who lived in the second half of the 8th century BC. In the first 39 chapters, Isaiah prophesies doom for a sinful Judah and for all the nations of the world that oppose God. The last 27 chapters prophesy the restoration of the nation of Israel. This section includes the Songs of the Suffering Servant, four separate passages that Christians believe prefigure the coming of Jesus Christ, and which are otherwise traditionally thought to refer to the nation of Israel. This second of the book's two major sections also includes prophecies of a new creation in God's glorious future kingdom. (Summary from Wikipedia)...

Kata Ioanne Euaggelio, apo ten Nea Diatheke tes Hagias Graphes

By: Anonimos

Tο κατά Ιωάννη Ευαγγέλιο παρουσιάζει τον Ιησού από την (Αρχή) , σαν τον αιώνιο Λόγο που γίνεται σάρκα. Όταν το Σάββατο θεραπεύει και όταν αποδεικνύει και φανερώνει τα Θεϊκά χαρακτηριστικά του προκαλεί τον θυμό και την αγανάκτηση των Ιουδαίων ηγετών. Προετοιμάζει τους μαθητές του για να δεχτούν τον σταυρικό θάνατο του και για την διακονία τους μετά τον θάνατο του. Πρόθυμα τελικά πεθαίνει στο σταυρό στην δική μας θέση.

Pursuit of God, The

By: Aiden Wilson Tozer

As the heart panteth after the water brooks, so panteth my soul after thee, O God. This thirst for an intimate relationship with God, claims A.W. Tozer, is not for a select few, but should be the experience of every follower of Christ. But, he asserts, it is all too rare when believers have become conditioned by tradition to accept standards of mediocrity, and the church struggles with formality and worldliness. Using examples from Scripture and from the lives of saints who lived with this thirst for God, Tozer sheds light on the path to a closer walk with God. (Summary by D. Leeson)...
