Worship in the epistles of Apostle Paul
Matějka, Daniel ; Mrázek, Jiří (advisor) ; Roskovec, Jan (referee)
In this work the gathering of the church in Corinth and its problems are analyzed in order to understand Paul's theological thinking and intentions about worship. These intentions are brought into connection with Paul's usage of worship terminology. Further, the significance of the Corinthian gathering for the life of the church is discussed. The analysis of the problem of the Corinthian Eucharist shows that different groups begin the dinner breaking the loaf at different moments as they arrive. Paul denies that this dinner is the Eucharist and re-establishes it by quoting the paradosis that emphasizes Jesus' dominance over the Eucharist and community with those for whom Jesus died. Concerning the Corinthian gathering where charismas appear Paul presents the profession of Jesus as Lord as a criterion of true spirituality. The general criterion for reformation of the worship is oikodome as the benefit for the church that is Christ's body. Paul emphasizes the integrative character of worship. However, Christian worship exceeds all sacral forms and fills the whole life of a believer. That's why Paul likes using sacral terminology in a transferred meaning. The Corinthian gathering for the Eucharist is very important for the church suffering from schism. The existing way of eating the dinner encourages the...

Pearls before Swine
Groll, Vlasta ; Mrázek, Jiří (advisor) ; Roskovec, Jan (referee)
The Bachelor thesis Pearls before Swine (Mt 7,6+15-22) includes a translation and exegesis of this part of the Sermon on the Mount and its grammatical analysis and in-depth study. It is an attempt to summ up various approaches to problematic elements of the text, how they are handled by different theologians mainly of the 20th century, and to hint at the directions which they followed. Further an outline of the period background which could have possibly influenced the evangelist by writting is drawn up. The nonbiblical paralles of these texts are mentioned, and the so called Wirkungsgeschichte of this text is chalked out. This thesis tries to figure out something which joins the verses about dogs and about false prophets together. The responces of the Mt 7,6+15-22 in Bohemia and Moravia are excluded.
John's Gospel and History
Plíšek, Jonáš ; Roskovec, Jan (advisor) ; Pokorný, Petr (referee)
THE PURPOSE OF MY THESIS IS TO EXPLORE HOW MUCH THE JOHN'S GOSPEL - NAMELY THE JESUS PRESENTED BY IT - IS HISTORICALLY RELIABLE ACCORDING TO THE CURRENT SCHOLARSHIP. METHODICALLY, I BASE MY INQUIRY ON COMPARISON WITH THE SYNOPTICS, ON CONFRONTATION WITH THE COMMENTARIES AND SELECTED RELEVANT SCHOLARLY STUDIES. I SEEK TO DEMONSTRATE THAT - CONCERNING THE QUESTION OF HISTORICAL RELIABILITY - JOHN'S GOSPEL IS IN A BETTER POSITION THAN MANY MIGHT THINK. OF COURSE, NOT THE GOSPEL AS A WHOLE. BUT DETAILS SPREAD ALL THROUGH THE GOSPEL SEEMINGLY UNIMPORTANT AT THE FIRST SIGHT POINT OUT TO A SURPRISINGLY PRECISE EVANGELIST'S KNOWLEDGE OF THE TOPOGRAPHICAL AND SOCIAL DETAILS OF JERUSALEM BEFORE THE DESTRUCTION OF THE SECOND TEMPLE. THE FIRST TWO CHAPTERS OF THE PAPER ARE CONCERNED WITH THE HISTORICAL DEVELOPMENT OF THIS QUESTION, FROM THE FIRST CENTURIES UNTIL TODAY, AND WITH THE HERMENEUTICAL DIFFICULTIES NECESSARILY ACCOMPANYING SUCH A TASK. THE THIRD CHAPTER IS THEN DEDICATED TO THE EXEGESIS OF SELECTED PASSAGES OF JOHN'S GOSPEL - MOSTLY FROM THE PASSION NARRATIVE-, WHERE I SEARCH FOR THE HIDDEN HISTORY.
Sibylline Oracles I-II and VI-VIII, Questions of Bartholomew, New Testament Apocrypha in Czech Translation.
Dus, Jan A. ; Pokorný, Petr (advisor) ; Roskovec, Jan (referee) ; Radová, Irena (referee)
Die Arbeit ist durch das Projekt des Zentrums für die biblischen Studien (Prag) "Neutestamentliche Apokryphen in der tschechischen Übersetzung" inspiriert (Übersicht von den übersetzten Schriften: E.4). In der terminologischen Einleitung (A.1) plädiert der Autor für die Erhaltung der konservativen Bezeichnung "neutestamentliche Apokryphen" (Schneemelcher) und gegen die Einführung von den "christlichen Apokryphen" (Junod, Markschies). Nach einigen Anmerkungen über die Problematik der Übersetzung von den antiken Texten (A.2) werden sechs charakteristische Erscheinungen von den Apokryphen behandelt (B) und jeweils an einer apokryphen Schrift illustriert: Textgestaltung ("der heilige Volk" in den Oracula Sibyllina I: B1); Komposition (Pseudo-Phocylides in den Oracula Sibyllina II: B2); biblische Parallelen ("der Gegner" in den Fragen des Bartholomäus: B3); alt- und neutestamentliche Anschlüsse ("Buße vor dem Tod" in der Apokalypse des Sedrach: B4); biblische und liturgische Zusammenhänge ("Eucharistie" in den Thomasakten: B5); theologische Verschiebungen hinter den Textveränderungen ("Fürbitte für die gestorbenen Sünder" in der Apokalypse des Petrus: B6). In dem folgenden Teil (C) befinden sich die zu-ständigen Textstücke in der tschechischen Übersetzung und mit Kommentar; es handelt sich dabei in zwei Fällen...

Freedom in the Letter to the Galatians: Eleutheria as a Soteriological Metaphor.
Cimala, Peter ; Pokorný, Petr (advisor) ; Tichý, Ladislav (referee) ; Roskovec, Jan (referee) ; Radová, Irena (referee)
The dissertation entitled "Freedom in the Letter to the Galatians: Eleutheria as a Soteriological Metaphor" deals with the old Greek notion of freedom (eleutheria) from the perspective of one epistle of the apostle Paul. The aim of the study is to examine the thesis if, and to what degree, freedom is a soteriological metaphor in the letter to the Galatians. An exegetical-theological analysis all eleutheria statements in the letter is preceded by chapters on (§1.) the history of research, (§2.) basic definitions of the polysemous notion freedom, and (§3.) setting the letter in its literary and historical context. In the main part of the thesis five sections and arguments are examined in which we find altogether 11 eleutheria statements (Ga 2,3-5, 3,26-29; 4,21-31; 5,1 a 5,13-15). The analysis of all eleutheria statements provides the basis to answer the main research question: Is freedom in Galatians a soteriological metaphor? Chapter five (§5.) focuses on Pauline soteriology, offering a fundamental delimitation of the metaphor and integrates freedom among the key soteriological metaphors in the letter Galatians and in Pauline theology. The conclusions of the research are summarized in chapter six (§6). The New Testament study presented here relates to broader themes of interest: the religious/biblical...
The Strong and the Weak in Romans 14-15
Majtán-Černák, Marek ; Roskovec, Jan (advisor) ; Pokorný, Petr (referee)
The present diploma thesis is an exegetical attempt to interpret Paul's parenesis in his Letter to the Romans 14,1-15,13. It tries to find answers to the following questions: Who are the "strong in faith" (15:1)? Who are the "weak in faith" (14:1)? What "day" is meant in chapter 14:5? What kind of dietary restrictions are in the background of 14:2? What is the solution that Paul suggests? The analysis has led to the following conclusions: Paul is trying to resolve a particular dispute between two groups of believers in Rome. The "weak" probably had a problem with the "strong" eating the meat and drinking the wine defiled with idolatry (14:21) and not keeping fasting days, or certain Jewish feast days (14:3). So, the "weak" may be identified as the Jewish Christians and the "strong" with the Christians of gentile origins. Paul tries to move both groups away from judging each other (14:3) to respect the opinion of the other group (14:4) and leads them above all to mutually build loving relationships to each other (14:19). Key words: weak in faith, strong in faith, day, food, dietetary restriction, Lord, Christ, Kingdom of heaven
Jesus Christ in Tomas Gospel and its comparing with canonical gospels
Peřinová, Klára ; Heryán, Ladislav (advisor) ; Roskovec, Jan (referee)
The title of my dissertation for my bachelor degree is the Jesus Christ in the Thomas ' Gospel and its comparison with others canonical gospels. The Thomas' Gospel isn't include in the Bible (in the New testament). This gospel is one of the apocryphal texts, which are not written in the Bible. It has gnosis elements. Generally, the apocryphal texts could be written in others codexes or they are written independently. I would like compare the differences between this specific gospel with others gospels, which are written in the Bible. Especially, my specialization is the comparsion the Thomas' Gospel with the John's Gospel. You can find there many differences, but you can find there also a few similarities. It's interesting that this text wasn't included in the New testament. I'm trying to find the reason, why this text isn't included in the Bible. This dissertation explains the special words: canonical gospels, apocryphal texts and gnosis. For this dissertation is also typical comparation with the historical context. Although the Thomas' Gospel isn't a part of the Bible, it could be hopeful and inspirational for human. It could be also useful for people, who help each other. I think that could help social workers to do to their work better. Today, people know mainly the texts from the Bible. The apocryphal...
