Versified Psalter by Jiří Strejc - critical edition
Matějec, Tomáš ; Brož, Jaroslav (advisor) ; Bartoň, Josef (referee) ; Sláma, Petr (referee)
The history of European psalm paraphrases begins in late ancient Greek literature. Greek interest in combining poetic content and metre is documented in the paraphrase of Psalm 102 from the 4th century preserved in the Codex visionum and the paraphrase of the whole psalter from the mid-5th century called Metaphrasis psalmorum or "Homeric psalter", both composed in dactylic hexameters. They share some features with early modern paraphrases: use of artistic language, application of christological interpretation, relation to singing, various approaches in terms of the degree of dependence on the biblical text. The Hebrew text of the Psalms shows no signs of the metric arrangement that is characteristic of traditional European poetry. Some Hebrew verses tend to be regularly organized on a tonic basis, but this arrangement is not binding or regular, unlike the standard of traditional European poetry. In the European environment, however, there has been since ancient times a strong conviction that the Hebrew verse is regularly arranged on a quantitative principle, and this belief lasted until the early modern period. Renaissance translations of ancient poetry into vernacular languages use syllabic or accentual-syllabic verse, and the same type of verse is also used in early modern psalm paraphrases when...
A vision of the Wisdom of the Prophet Enoch. On the Function of the Parable of Enoch.
Cielontko, Dávid ; Mrázek, Jiří (advisor) ; Ábel, František (referee) ; Brož, Jaroslav (referee)
The main aim of this dissertation is to understand the function of the text The Parables of Enoch (PE) in its ancient context. Despite the complicated and composite nature of this text, I have tried to explain the internal logic of this text, especially with an emphasis on understanding the different timelines with which the author of the text works. A critical evaluation of the limits of working with the preserved Ethiopian translations, as well as with the composite nature of the extant form of the text is the essential prerequisite for the interpretation of PE. In the exegetical part, I seek to demonstrate the main thesis that the purpose of PE is to offer a complex symbolic universe through ancient authoritative visions of the ancestor Enoch that serves to legitimize the shared social reality, which is in danger due to the difficult situation of persecution and oppression. I take the theoretical framework for this research over from the sociological constructivism. While the shared social reality is often in crisis, the symbolic universe as a complex level of legitimation intends to explain this discrepancy between the assumed social reality and the reality of the everyday experience. In the case of PE, it is a discrepancy between the experience of oppression and persecution of the addressees...
The Concept of Hope in the Epistles of Apostle Paul
Sluka, Jiří ; Ryšková, Mireia (advisor) ; Brož, Jaroslav (referee)
The work deals with the epistles of Paul the Apostle. Using Greek concordance, it searches for verses containing the words hope and to hope, analyzes them, and examines the context where Paul writes about hope. The analysis is then used to create generalizing characteristics: who or what, according to Paul, is a source of hope, what is its object or goal, what are its effects, how to distinguish beneficial hope from ineffective and harmful hope, what is the connection and order of virtues in the Faith - Love - Hope triad. The work also takes into account some parts expressing hope without explicitly mentioning the term, in addition to the expressed use of the word hope. It evaluates the obtained proper findings and compares them with published conclusions of other authors in professional biblical literature from the end of the 20th century to the present and with the opinion of two modern important ecclesiastical documents dealing with hope. The conclusions of the work show Paul as a biblical author who uses the concept of Christian hope extremely often in a wide range of contexts and whose epistles have a reference meaning for understanding this concept. Hope is significantly Christocentric in Paul's presentation with a very close relationship to faith and love. The work outlines general...
The Image of God's Justice in the Parable of the Workers in Vineyard
Vernerová, Eva ; Brož, Jaroslav (advisor) ; Scarano, Angelo (referee)
The Image of God's Justice in the Parable of the Workers in the Vineyard The parable about the workers in the vineyard from the Gospel of Matthew depicts the contrast between human and Godly conception of justice. The subject of the thesis is a comparison of the picture given in this parable by Jesus about the God's justice with the Old Testament picture of the Lord as the righteous God. Following a short initial characteristic of the Gospel of Matthew the thesis deals at first with the common interpretation of the conception of a parable. Then the survey of the exegesis of the parable itself is given, both by Church Fathers and by modern authors. The fourth chapter aims at the concept of justice in the Scripture of both the New and the Old Testaments, with a short discursion into the contemporary Graeco-Roman cultural world. The conclusion deduces that the picture of the God's justice inseparable from grace, given by Jesus, is more likely a consistent elaboration of the Old Testament texts than some completely new and revolutionary idea. It can become a source of deep Christian hope. Keywords Parable, workers in the vineyard, God's justice, mercy, hope

Anderlová, Iveta Isabela ; Brož, Jaroslav (advisor) ; Ryšková, Mireia (referee)
Missionary aspects of the Visitation of Virgin Mary to Elisabeth (Luke 1:36-45). This work deals with the pericope "Visitation of Elizabeth" in the Gospel of Luke as the precursor of Jesus' missionary journey through the earth into the Kingdom of God. First the exegetical issues of individual verses are described followed by commentaries and interpretative notes of several exegetes using various translations of the Sacred Scripture. Next subject is the journey, as described in Luke's gospel, as well as the missionary view of the journey of the Virgin Mary to visit his relative Elizabeth, as well as the life journey of every man which leads to the Kingdom of God, which is a theme of Jesus Christ's preaching on his way to Jerusalem (Gospel of Luke). The work attempts to capture the necessary features of missionaries that can be identified in the pericope of the Virgin Mary on the road to Elizabeth. Elizabeth herself, as the person to whom the Virgin Mary was sent as a missionary is also an important topic in this work. Elisabeth shows the task and mission of the missionary himself, not only to bring and show Christ to others, but also to enable him to whom he is sent to confess his faith and show his piety.

The Contemporary Family in the Light of Biblical Narrative
Berdar, Petr ; Ryšková, Mireia (advisor) ; Brož, Jaroslav (referee)
This diploma thesis deals with the character and form of today's family, which is based on traditional marriage. It draws its foundations from theological interpretations of biblical passages that address this topic. These passages primarily present the family as God's will for people and His behavior as the model for marital ethics. The next section introduces the preferences and attitudes of people from the Czech Republic based on public opinion polls towards marriage, family, and other forms of social coexistence. Afterward, these public opinions are compared with the reality, as presented by the Czech statistical office, which monitors divorces and marriages in the region. The last chapters then focus on the negative effects of divorce and the factors which lead to the disruption of marital integrity. They also address the moral values that strengthen marital roles, relational permanency and "a healthy family".
James, brother of the Lord, in the New Testament
Brabenec, Jakub ; Brož, Jaroslav (advisor) ; Scarano, Angelo (referee)
The thesis follows one of the supporting characters from the New Testament, James, the brother of the Lord. The first chapter deals with the meaning and occurrence of the name James in both biblical and non-biblical sources. The following second chapter deals with the canonical biblical texts that depict fragments of James' life. However, many questions remain about the closer characterization of our wanted person James and the form of his earthly family. The thesis also examines whether James could or could not really be the brother of Jesus of Nazareth. Through the analysis of texts we look for the answer that canonical texts give us.Subsequently, in the third chapter attention is also directed to the apocryphal and non-biblical sources that govern us about our James. In connection with the wanted James is mentioned and the first church community in Jerusalem, in which James played a significant leadership role. The aim of the thesis is to describe the character of James, the brother of the Lord, by means of all analyzed sources. In conclusion, a summary possible solution of questions concerning James, the Lord's Brother is presented. Keywords James, brothers of the Lord, Acts of the Apostles, the primary Christian community in Jerusalem.
Jesus' teaching on marriage as a return to the "origin"
Kozler, Karel ; Brož, Jaroslav (advisor) ; Ryšková, Mireia (referee)
Jesus' teachings on marriage as a return to the "origin". This bachelor thesis deals with the meaning, importance and necessity of a marriage as an institution not only in the ancient history but also in the present times. Today's modern society is influenced by its widely- tolerated attributes, those are as followed - the deflection from a marriage as an institution, a cohabitation of the unmarried couples, a depreciation of the concept of marriage, the full perception of the importance of body, the society's attitude towards the contraception and miscarriage itself, the periodic incontinence and last but not at least the loss of a gift of reciprocity. But there are many people who understand marriage as a prime holiness, responsible parenthood and honor its high ethical and moral values. They also honor the love which relates to the purity expressed as a continence that protects the dignity. As well as they give evidence of a positive change, a deepened intimacy, love and a rediscovery of sexual self-control. This thesis is not only about a list of changing meaning and importance of marriage during the periods of time, but it primarily reflects the understanding of a marriage in the past as well as in the present and the needs of society in terms of culture and ethics of mutual partnership...
New Testamental Impulses for the Contemporary Marriage and Family
Jurkulák, Petr ; Ryšková, Mireia (advisor) ; Brož, Jaroslav (referee)
The thesis deals with marriage and family as a basic building element of society, which is established by God from the beginning of humanity. It brings a historical excursion to these institutions in the Old Testament, Ancient and New Testament era. He emphasizes the radicalization of the concept of marriage by Jesus and his followers (eg, the prohibition of divorce - the protection of women, the protection of weak and defenseless, widows and children). He points to the infidelity and divergence of religion as an obstacle to remaining in marriage for the sake of justice and the goal of the Law. It represents a new innovative way of life, renunciation of the marriage for the gospel. It introduces readers to the House Rules, which show how the domestic community is to function as a model of the whole church community for present and future generations. It highlights the New Testament values that are crucial to marriage and family today (eg, respect and love between spouses, respect and dignity for a woman, equality of spouses in all areas of life, the same duty and dignity among family members, family self-sacrifice for another, love of children to parents and respect for older people.
