Many Religions, One Covenant: Israel, the Church, and the World

Many Religions, One Covenant: Israel, the Church, and the World

  • Used Book in Good Condition

Forward by Scott Hahn

In Many Religions, One Covenant, Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger spans the deep divides in modern Catholic scholarship to present a compelling biblical theology, modern in its concerns yet classical in its breadth. It is his classical mastery, his ressourcement, that enables the Cardinal to build a bridge.

Cardinal Ratzinger seeks to deepen our understanding of the Bible’s most fundamental principle. The covenant defines religion for Christians and Jews. We cannot discern God’s design or his will if we do not meditate upon his covenant.

The covenant, then, is the principle that unites the New Testament with the Old, the Scriptures with Tradition, and each of the various branches of theology with all the others. The covenant does more than bridge the gaps between these elements; it fills in the gaps, so that biblical scholarship, dogmatic theology, and magesterial authority all stand on common ground – solid ground.

Why did the catholic church name so many things after pagan gods?

Question by ~۞~ST£V£-Ø~۞~ the Sexy Beast =): Why did the catholic church name so many things after pagan gods?
They named the holiday easter after a pagan god. The months of January, March, February, May and, June after pagan gods. They also named every day of the week after a celestial body that was worshipped by the previous pagans. But the church is the one who made the calendar, why would they name everything after another religion which they supposedly oppose?
They could make up words or name their months and days after other things important to Christianity. Easter is a pagan God, I believe it’s spelled like Eastre though. Monday=Moon Day, etc. March= Mars, etc. I did not think about the whole easier to convert dealy.
The church did make the calendar, the Gregorian calendar named after Pope Gregory.

They adopted pagan holidays and turned them into christian ones as well (such as the saturnelia on Dec. 25th)

They did it to make the “new” religion of christianity palatable to the Pagan Romans. It made converting easier.

By the looks of things, I wouldn’t say you could get any more than about 100 people in there at a push, 50 comfortably.

Can you help me with a math problem? How many laps around a building would be a mile?

Question by me: Can you help me with a math problem? How many laps around a building would be a mile?
I live near a big church and I go for walks in the evenings around it.
I walk at a regular pace not too slow and not too fast.

I timed myself and I’m guessing I walk at 2mph.
It takes 22 minutes to walk around the church.

I wanted to know from that information if you can tell me how many laps running, instead of walking, would be 1 mile.
Do you need anymore info?

I appreciate your time.
Thank you.

Answer by Joe D
Each lap is .733 of one mile, so 1.36 laps would be one mile.
