John by Gerard S Sloyan( Book )

16 editions published between 1987 and 2013 in 5 languages and held by 1,036 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Gerard Sloyan offre una nuova esposizione, chiara e profonda, dei temi principali del Vangelo di Giovanni sia in riferimento alle antiche scritture d'Israele sia rispetto alla comprensione che nei secoli ne hanno avuto i cristiani, come risulta anche dai lezionari in uso nelle diverse chiese. Sottolineando le particolarità del contesto di questo Vangelo rispetto a quello dei tre sinottici, l'autore evidenzia inoltre la portata ecumenica del messaggio giovanneo, dimostrata in modo articolato nella trattazione di Giovanni 17. Tenendo saldamente distinti il contesto storico di Gesù da quello del Vangelo di Giovanni nonché da quello della chiesa del XXI secolo, Sloyan si concentra sull'opera del curatore finale all'interno del cristianesimo del I secolo
The crucifixion of Jesus : history, myth, faith by Gerard S Sloyan( Book )

6 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 722 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

What was crucifixion? Why was Jesus of Nazareth executed and what really happened? Gerard Sloyan begins with history and traces the development of the New Testament accounts of Jesus' death. He shows how Jesus' death came to be seen as sacrificial and how the evolving understandings of Jesus' death affected those who suffered most from it - the Jews. He then traces the emergence and development - in theology, liturgy, literature, art - of the conviction that Jesus' death was redemptive, as seen both in soteriological theory from Tertullian to Anselm, in the Reformation and modern eras, and in more popular religious responses to the crucifixion. Especially fascinating is the story of the emergence of a distinct "Passion piety" that still characterizes the West. In all this Sloyan detects the separation of the cross from Jesus' life and resurrection, allowing the mythicizing of an event too large for mere words to handle: the mystery of the cross

Walking in the truth : perseverers and deserters : the First, Second, and Third letters of John by Gerard S Sloyan( Book )

4 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 258 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The most usual interpretation put on the three epistles is that they were written in the sequence 1, 2, and 3 and came after the Gospel. ... The present writer has great respect for proponents of this theory but does not espouse it or indeed any other on the circumstances of composition. The attempt here is simply to explore what the three epistles may be saying when their meaning is obscure and to make accessible their mesage to the church of the present when it is not.There are so many echoes of biblical passages from both Testaments in this brief body of literature that it would be tedious to cite them all. A selection has been made. The remarkable thing is how much of it from the Newer Testament is extra-Johannine. ... In all, the field is so richly planted that it is an exercise in arrogance to attempt to harvest an additional yield. The present writer's comfort must be the ancient tag line, Non nova sed nove. There is nothing new in what follows but one thing or another may be expressed, without novelty, in a new way."--Introduction to the letters, pages 3-6
