Flashcards in Ginger Lord Ch 4 Deck (21):
“Sacred Scripture. The books which contain the truth of God’s Revelation and were composed by human authors inspired by the Holy Spirit. The Bible contains both the forty-six books of the Old Testament and the twenty-seven books of the New Testament.”
“Greek and Latin for “rule.” A statute promulgated to assist in practicing the Faith or governing the Church fairly and consistently. In another sense, canon refers to the Church’s complete list of inspired books of the Bible.”
“An Old English rendering of the Greek for “good news.” The good news of God’s mercy and love revealed in the life, Death, and Resurrection of Christ. The Apostles, and the Church following them, proclaim this to the entire world.”
“The twenty-seven books of the Bible written by sacred authors in apostolic times; they have Jesus Christ, the incarnate Son of God—his life, teachings, Passion and glorification, and the beginnings of his Church—as their central theme.
“The forty-six books of the Bible that record the history of salvation from creation until the time of Christ.”
“An event or person in Scripture that points toward a later event or person. The type, on the other hand, has similar virtues or other qualities as its fulfillment.
“The five books of Moses (first five of the Old Testament): Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers, and Deuteronomy”
“From the Greek prophetes, meaning “one who speaks for”; a person selected by God to speak in his name.”
“One who proclaims the euangellion or gospel (“good news”). Sts. Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John each produced a gospel, that is, an account of the earthly life of Jesus Christ, stressing the “good news” contained in his ministry and teachings. In a correlative sense, anyone who works actively to spread and promote the gospel”
Liturgy of the word
“The portion of the Mass that includes the reading of Scripture and the homily”
“An edition of the Old Testament, produced by Origen, that presented the texts in Hebrew and Greek in side-by-side columns”
“Those books of the Bible that were included in the Jewish or Hebrew canon of Scriptures.
“An event or person in Scripture that points toward a later event or person. The type, on the other hand, has similar virtues or other qualities as its fulfillment.”
“A type of sacred literature characterized by symbolic imagery pointing to the expectation that the powers of evil will be destroyed and the righteous raised to a new life in justice. It is also an alternate name for the Book of Revelation (Apocalypse of St. John)”
“From a Greek term meaning “five books,” referring to the Torah, the first five books of the Old Testament: Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers, and Deuteronomy.”
“From the Latin testamentum (“covenant”
“One of the supposed original sources of the Pentateuch, reflecting the perspective of Jews in the northern kingdom of Israel around the eighth or ninth century BC.”
“Those parts of the Old Testament that were removed from the Jewish or Hebrew canon of Scripture, but which appear in the Septuagint (the Greek translation) used by the early Christians.”
Analogy of Faith
“Because God is Truth, there is an absolute unity and coherence of truths contained in the various books of the Bible. These can never be contradictory, but rather illustrate and shed light on one another and the complete plan of Revelation.”
