Transcript of Chapter 1: God's Good Creation

Pater Noster

Pater noster qui es in coelis,
sanctificetur nomen tuum;
adveniat regnum tuum,
fiat voluntas tua,
sicut in coelo et in terra.
Panem nostrum quotidianum da nobis hodie,
et dimitte nobis debita nostra,
sicut et nos dimittimus debitoribus nostris.
et ne nos inducas in tentationem
sed libera nos a malo.

Amen.

Exegesis, Eisegesis
and How to
Read the Bible

Interpreting Scripture
EXEGESIS: The utilization of various analytical tools to interpret or understand a particular word, phrase or book of the Bible.

EISEGESIS: The utilization of Biblical text to prove a predisposition or interpret the text to fit personal needs.

Exegesis
Matthew 5:17-28
“Do not think that I have come to abolish the Law and the Prophets; I have not come to abolish them but to fulfill them. For truly I tell you, until heaven and earth disappear, not the smallest letter, not the least stroke of a pen, will by any means disappear from the Law until everything is accomplished. Therefore, anyone who sets aside one of these commands and teaches others accordingly will be called least in the kingdom of heaven, but whoever practices and teaches these commands will be called great in the kingdom of heaven. For I tell you that unless your righteousness surpasses that of the Pharisees and the teachers of the Law, you wil certainly not enter the kingdom of heaven.

So what do the stories of creation tell us about God?
Source
Historical
Form
Redaction
Textual
Unsurprisingly source criticism seeks to investigate the source each writer used
But what about Divine Revelation???
God works through particular peoples and cultures to reveal His message of Love
Historical criticism seeks to understand cultures, peoples and other historical realities that went into the shaping of words, phrases and culturally based stories that shape Scripture.
Why is this so important? Can't we just read the Bible for what it is?
Form criticism studies how different literary styles reveal the messages intended by their author.

Similar to Redaction criticism, textual criticism investigates various translations of the original text to better uncover the original meaning
OF THE WORLD
ORIGINS
-Human Questioning

the investigation of truths and principles using human reason. (page 4)
-Philosophy:
All that the church believes and teaches, as perpetuated by the Magesterim
The teaching office of the Church; the bishops in communion with the Pope
The Gospel message lived and passes on through the life of the church, worship and teaching
Tradition
Deposit of faith
The inspired word of God and God's salvation history
Magisterium
Pantheism
"The belief...that God and nature are one and the same." (page 4)

Example: Hinduism
Polytheism
"The belief...that there are many Gods." (4)

Examples: Greek gods and goddesses, Baal
Deism, atheism & agnosticism
Deism: the belief that a "god" exists through the use of human reason alone

Atheism: the belief that there is no deity or divinity

Agnosticism: the belief that there is not sufficient information to make a decision on God or gods.
Relativism
All truth is relative to the individual who perceives it.

"Relativism is the most profound difficulty of our time."
-Benedict XVI

What do we believe?
Redemption: God desired to reveal Himself to the world, through His Son, so that we may become "sharers in the divine nature" (CCC, 51).

Salvation History: the entire story of God's action in the world
