1012 Lecture 12

The years following Jesus until the death of the last of the Twelve Apostles,  the Christian Church came fully into being on Pentecost when, according to scriptural accounts, the apostles received the Holy Spirit and emerged from hiding following the death and resurrection of Jesus to preach and spread his message. The apostolic period produced writings attributed to the direct followers of Jesus Christ and is traditionally associated with the apostles and apostolic times.

Major Septuagint Manuscripts — Vaticanus, Sinaiticus, Alexandrinus

RAMaster's picture

Readers of Bible commentaries and articles on the Bible are often informed by learned authors that a particular word or phrase is found in the Septuagint—and that, therefore, the Septuagint substantiates the learned author’s point.

Septuagint, the first Bible translation – 2

RAMaster's picture

Most of the scholars today —who are now in the majority—disagree. [1]   They contend that it is much more likely that the Jewish community itself instigated the translation to serve their own liturgical and pedagogical needs. When scholars holding this position reinvestigate Ptolemy’s supposed interest in a Greek translation of Jewish Law, the evidence begins to evaporate.

Septuagint, the first Bible translation – 1

RAMaster's picture

It often comes as a surprise to laypeople to learn that ancient copies of the Bible vary, sometimes in minor ways, but sometimes, also, in important ways. Variation exists between any two manuscripts of the Bible, even when they are written in the same language. But apart from minor variations among ancient manuscripts, when all the evidence from antiquity is compared, two important traditions of the biblical text emerge. They are the Masoretic text and the Septuagint.

The Divided Monarchy – 13 / Fall of Jerusalem

RAMaster's picture

Nebuchadnezzar probably intended to follow up his victories at Carchemish and Hamath by continuing to march south into Palestine, but he was prevented from doing so by the death of his father, Nabopolassar, which required him to return to Babylon in August 605 BCE, and accept the crown as Nebuchadnezzar II (605–562 BCE), the second king of the Neo-Babylonian Empire.

Testimonial: The Story of Mary Magdalene

RAMaster's picture

Mary Magdalene is described, both in the canonical New Testament and in the New Testament apocrypha, as a devoted disciple of Jesus. She is considered by the Roman Catholic, Eastern Orthodox, and Anglican churches to be a saint, with a feast day of July 22. She is also commemorated by the Lutheran Church with a festival on the same day. The Orthodox Church also commemorates her on the Sunday of the Myrrhbearers, which is the second Sunday after Pascha (Easter).
