God dwells with us : temple symbolism in the Fourth Gospel by Mary L Coloe( Book )
4 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 224 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"In the years after the destruction of Jerusalem and its Temple, and the ensuing rift between Judaism and Christianity, the Fourth Gospel offers hope to Christians that the God of Israel's traditions can now be found in and through Jesus. Within this historical milieu, the Temple provides a major christological symbol for the Johannine community. The Temple, as the place of God's dwelling, reveals both the identity and the mission of Jesus." "Having shown how the Temple symbolism applies to Jesus, God Dwells with Us discusses how the Temple symbolism in the Fourth Gospel also applies to the Christian community. Thus in the absence of the historical Jesus, Christians still have access to a God who dwells in the midst of the community."--Jacket
Dwelling in the household of God : Johannine ecclesiology and spirituality by Mary L Coloe( Book )
4 editions published between 2006 and 2007 in English and held by 177 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"In her first book, God Dwells With Us: Temple Symbolism in the Fourth Gospel, Mary L. Coloe, P.B.V.M., explored the profound insight of John's Gospel expressed in Jesus' invitation to his disciples: "Make your home in me, as I make mine in you" (John 15:4)." "Dwelling in the Household of God moves us to the other pole of the invitation: "make your home in me." The starting point now is an image in John 14:2: "my Father's house," which is given its Old Testament meaning of "my father's household." Our awareness thus moves, like that of the first Christians, from understanding "My father's house" as the Temple (John 2:16) to "My Father's Household" as a community of believers drawn into Jesus' own divine filiation. Coloe invites us to re-read the gospel from the post-Easter perspective of those who have become brothers and sisters of Jesus and living Temples of God's presence. What emerges is nothing less than a profound mysticism of the mutual indwelling of God and believers."--Jacket

A friendly guide to John's gospel by Mary L Coloe( Book )
1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
One of Australia's well-respected scripture theologians, Mary L. Coloe, brings the world of the gospels to life in this addition to the Friendly Guide series of books. In this guide, Coloe explains how John has selected and shaped this material differently: where the Synoptic Gospels work from a theological framework of sin and atonement, John speaks of life and eternity life. This is an alternative approach to the meaning of Jesus' life, death and rising. Coloe explores John's positive message that affirms life, and speaks to the heart of human desires today

Brief, contemporary gospel reflections offer readers thoughtful introductions to the Sunday gospels of the liturgical year
Sundays under the Southern Cross gospel reflections year A : Matthew by Mary L Coloe( Book )
1 edition published in 2007 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Mary Coloe's brief, contemporary Australian gospel reflections offer readers thoughtful introductions to the Sunday gospels of the liturgical year. Matthew is the focus of Year A. This small book completes her series on the three years of lectionary readings. Mary writes her reflections mindful of the historical context of Matthew's writing. She points out that Matthew was writing, after the destruction of the Temple, for a Jewish community split between the Pharisees who focused on Jewish Law (Torah) and the third generation of Jesus' followers who believed that Jesus, God's appointed one and Son, had an authority greater than Moses and the old Law. At the same time, this Christian community was opening out to non-Jews, the Gentiles. Matthew therefore seeks to portray Jesus in a way that reflects and cherishes his community's Jewish origins while at the same time arguing against the Synagogue leaders of his time. In this context he shows that Jesus is 'God with us', 'Emmanuel'. At a time when our world is beset with conflict, Jesus' promise, 'I will be with you always' is the Good News we need to hear. This is an excellent resource for personal use or for groups in schools and parishes."--Provided by publisher
