Agape in the New Testament

Agape in the Synoptic Gospels
  • By Ceslaus Spicq
Product Description
In this insightful work, the author explores the fundamental Christian virtue of 'agape.' Spicq's genius is the way he combines fine linguistic analysis, exegesis, and theological insight. The three volumes cover most of the New Testament books: Volume 1: 'Agape in the Synoptic Gospels' Volume 2: 'Agape in the Epistles of St. Paul, the Acts of the Apostles, the Epistles of St. James, St. Peter, and St. Jude' Volume 3: 'Agape in the Gospel, Epistles and Apocalypse of St. John' Agape is an active and effective love operating with a singular tenderness. The Sermon on the Mount stressed its heroic forms of patience and of gentleness. The parable of the Good Samaritan shows it to be attentive and tender, truly compassionate. . . . In the Gospel, to love means to give, to give oneself, to belong to another--to belong to God in obedience and consecration, to belong to neighbor in service and compassion. --from the Conclusion Ceslas Spicq, O.P., was an internationally recognized biblical scholar. He is also the author of 'Theological Lexicon of the New Testament' (3 vols.), 'The Trinity and Our Moral Life according the St. Paul, ' and 'The Mystery of Godliness.'
