Vangelo di Giovanni (Italian Edition) by AA. VV. PDF

By AA. VV.

COLLANA DIRETTA DA VITO MANCUSO

«In principio period il Logos»: fin dal primo versetto il vangelo di Giovanni abbandona lo stile descrittivo e parabolico degli altri vangeli e affronta l. a. questione della divinità di Cristo, con un linguaggio teologico denso di suggestioni platoniche. Una cifra che ne fa il testo chiave della mistica cristiana e lo accomuna ai vangeli gnostici, alla letteratura ermetica e alla matrice filosofico-religiosa del mondo ellenistico, molto più che ai restanti libri del canone neotestamentario.
Prendendo le distanze dalla tradizione delle edizioni devozionali, Marco Vannini adotta una prospettiva critica ispirata a criteri di correttezza filologica e storica ed evidenzia tutta l. a. problematica interna alla genesi e alla piena comprensione del 4to vangelo.

Marco Vannini (1948) si occupa di mistica cristiana, della quale ha edito alcuni autori fondamentali, primo fra tutti Meister Eckhart, e alla quale ha dedicato numerosi studi. Tra i suoi ultimi lavori: Inchiesta su Maria (2013, con Corrado Augias) e L’Anticristo. Storia e mito (2015).

Download e-book for iPad: Quand la faveur triomphe du passé (French Edition) by Espérance Mbakadi

By Espérance Mbakadi

Il est donc plus facile pour l’homme d’être contrôlé par son goé que par le présent ou le futur, parce que celui-ci prend suffisamment le temps de s’enraciner en lui. Le goé a préséance sur le présent et le futur, et par conséquent, domine sur eux.
Le goé exerce donc son emprise sur l’homme, le contrôle, le manipule, le paralyse et l’empêche ainsi d’orienter positivement son futur. european égard à ceci, même le chrétien se retrouve dans l. a. même state of affairs que le païen.
Toutefois, pour que Dieu atteigne le yet qu’il poursuit avec vous, il vous a créé en dehors du temps comme un être spirituel. Il vous a prédestiné avant que vous ne veniez dans le temps, pour que votre moveé temporel ou adamique ne puisse anéantir son plan éternel dans votre vie.
Alors, chaque fois que vous voulez combattre le diable, amenez-le, au moyen de l. a. prière, dans l’éternité ; sortez du temps où il est favori par rapport à vous. Pour avoir de l’avantage sur lui, ramenez-le sur le terrain de l’éternité. Par l. a. prière, influencez et transformez donc le temps, changez le monde.
Jésus-Christ est mort pour que sa grâce triomphe de votre passé.
Si sans contrepartie, Ruben est sorti de l. a. malédiction, il est évident que là où le prix a été payé, les choses ne peuvent que bien marcher, l. a. malédiction ne peut que déguerpir.
