Sermons of Leo the Great

By: Leo The Great

Leo the Great was unanimously elected Bishop of Rome on September 29, 440 a.d. At the Council of Chalcedon, his famous Tome was a decisive contribution to the Christological controversies of the fifth century. But the Tome did not stand alone. It was written in the context of over two decades of pastoral sensitivity. This collection of sermons is the best way to let Leo himself unpack the nuances and power of Chalcedonian Christology according to one of its most influential proponents.

By: American Standard Version ; The Preacher

By: Patriarchiki Ekdosi

Παρουσιάζονται από τον ευαγγελιστή Ματθαίο όλα τα γεγονότα εκείνα που εξιστορούν την ζωή , τη διδασκαλία , το πάθος , το θάνατο και την ανάσταση του Ιησού Χριστού. Ο αναγνώστης μπορεί καθαρά να διακρίνει το μεγαλείο της ακεραιότητας , του θάρρους και της αυταπάρνησης του Κυρίου. Δεν δίστασε Ο Ιησούς Χριστός να επικρίνει και να κηρύξει ενάντια στην διδασκαλία των Φαρισαίων , αποκαλύπτοντας έτσι τα έργα τους και φανερώνοντας την αλήθεια. All those events that relate to us Jesus Christ’s life , teaching, death passion and resurrection are presented to us by the evangelist Matthew. The reader can vividly see the magnificence , dignity, and self denial that characterized our Lord.

Bible (CUV) NT 01: 聖經 (和合本) 新約全書 - 馬太福音 (Matthew)

By: Chinese Union Version

The Chinese Union Version (CUV) (Chinese: 和合本; pinyin: héhé běn; literally harmonized/united version) is the predominant Chinese language translation of the Bible used by Chinese Protestants. It is considered by many to be the Chinese Protestant’s Bible. The CUV in use today is the vernacular Mandarin version, published in two slightly different editions - the Shen Edition (神版) and the Shangti Edition (上帝版) - differing in the way the word “God” is translated. 聖經 (和合本)(簡稱和合本;或稱國語和合本、官話和合本),是今日華語人士最普遍使用的聖經譯本。此譯本的出版起源自1890年在上海舉行的傳教士大會,會中各差會派代表成立了三個委員會,各自負責翻譯《官話和合本》、《淺文理和合譯本》及《文理和合譯本》。...

Bible (Fenton) 01-07, 09-10: Holy Bible in Modern English, The: Genesis - Judges, 1 & 2 Samuel

By: Ferrar Fenton

Work on the translation began in 1853 by a London businessman called Ferrar Fenton (1832–1920). The complete Bible was first published in 1903, though parts were published as separate volumes during the preceding 11 years. The translation is noted for a rearranging of the books of the Bible into what the author believed was the correct chronological order. In the Old Testament, this order follows that of the Hebrew Bible. The name of God was translated throughout the Old Testament as The Ever-Living. The Bible is described as translated into English direct from the original Hebrew, Chaldee, and Greek languages. For his translation of the Book of Job which appeared in 1898, Fenton was assisted by Henrik Borgström. This was rendered into the same metre as the original Hebrew, word by word and line by line. His translation of the New Testament is based on the Greek text of Westcott and Hort. The ordering novelty in the New Testament is that it places the Gospel of John and the First Epistle of John at the beginning before the Gospel of Matthew, thus placing the Acts of the Apostles immediately after the Gospel of Luke. Notable as well,...

Bible (ASV) 10: 2 Samuel

By: American Standard Version

“The Books of Samuel (Hebrew: Sefer Sh’muel ספר שמואל) are part of the Tanakh (part of Judaism’s Hebrew Bible) and also of the Christian Old Testament. The work was originally written in Hebrew, and the Book(s) of Samuel originally formed a single text, as they are often considered today in Hebrew bibles. Together with what is now referred to as the Book(s) of Kings, the translators who created the Greek Septuagint divided the text into four books, which they named the Books of the Kingdoms. In the Latin Vulgate version, these then became the Books of the Kings, thus 1 and 2 Samuel were referred to as 1 and 2 Kings, with 3 and 4 Kings being what are called 1 and 2 Kings by the King James Bible and its successors.”...
