Grobelný, Miroslav ; Ryšková, Mireia (advisor) ; Větrovec, Pavel (referee)
The title of this degree work is "Christians and Politics from the View of the New Testamental Texts". The main purpose is to identify various aspects of the view at the political power in the texts of the New Testament, to make a judgement about these texts on the background of its historical and literary context and to look for its common topics. In this thesis we went into details about relatively great number of passages with the goal to attain the global point of view. At the beginning we justified why to look for the inspiration in the life of Jesus Christ. Then we focused on Jesus' political principles. We treated conflicts between John the Baptist and Herod Antipas and conflicts between Jesus and political and religious leaders of his days. We focused mainly on the conflicts connected with the Jewish Law and paying taxes. Then we treated the conflict between Jesus and Pilate, which ended in Jesus' crucifixion. Then we briefly touched on the Paul's point of view and we mentioned several examples of the persecution of the Christians from the pagans. At the end we made an attempt to resume briefly what the New Testament says about the relationship of the Christians to the political power and we joined the short mention about the relationship between the Church and the state in the social doctrine of...

Kilhof, Tomáš ; Ryšková, Mireia (advisor) ; Scarano, Angelo (referee)
Jesus and the fulfillment of the Law in Mat 5:17-48 The bachelor thesis deals with how Jesus presents his message as the fulfillment of the Law and the Prophets. First, the understanding of the Law in the Old Testament and Jewish traditions is briefly described through commentary. His conception in the books of the Torah, the Decalogue and other legislative texts. Of course, Jesus, as a member of the Jewish nation, fully honors the Law, but in his view, man comes to the fore, as the highest good to be kept in mind when applying the individual provisions of the Law. A brief introduction to the Gospel of Matthew also outlines the relationship of the Gospel of Matthew to Judaism and an analysis of the "sermon on the mountain", especially Mt 5: 17-48. For comparison, some parallels from the OT are given, as well as comparisons with other Gospels. The following is an analysis of the six "antitheses", their formulation in the Old Testament, and the subsequent interpretation of Jesus and the introduction of new requirements. Jesus interprets the law and makes demands from the position of the highest authority, the Son of God. He is above the Law. The work focuses on Jesus' conception of the law and describes the difference between the letter and the spirit of the law. The main theme is Jesus as the One who...

2 Cor 10-13. The Great Apology of the Apostle Paul
Radovanská, Monika ; Ryšková, Mireia (advisor) ; Scarano, Angelo (referee)
Abstract This work deals with the four final chapters of the Second Letter to Corinth, which are considered for their difference as a separate letter. The apostle Paul defends his apostolic mission here against "adversaries." The first chapters aim to bring closer the life of the Apostle Paul, his missionary journey. In abbreviated form, they also describe the individual leaves that St. Paul also wrote the so-called catalogs of suffering that these letters contain. The next section deals with Corinth. A brief outline of the history of this city-state is followed by a chapter on the local church community. After a short historical approach to Corinth, the characteristics of the local ecclesial community follow, followed by a description of the problems in this community as recorded in the letters that Paul addressed to Corinth. Behind this list is a brief introduction to the meaning of the word "apostle". At the end of this section, the work deals with the issue of Corinthian correspondence, ie the number of letters written in Corinth and their contents. After this general introduction to the problem, the work is devoted to a more detailed analysis of individual pericopes 2 Cor 10-13, which could shed light on what could be the reasons for this Great Paul's apology.
The life story of the Apostle Philip according to biblical and non-biblical sources
Mrňa, Jaroslav ; Ryšková, Mireia (referee)
v anglickém jazyce: Licentiate Thesis The life story of the Apostle Philip according to biblical and non-biblical sources deals with the life and mission of Jesus' disciple Philip, whose name appears in the Gospels in the list of the Twelve, and rarely occurs as an individual. For these reasons, his research gets only marginal interest among scholars. Besides an overview of the occurrence of the name Filip in both biblical and non-biblical sources, the study offers literary and linguistic analysis of relevant pericopes from synoptic gospels, the John's Gospel and the Acts of the Apostles, whose conclusions serve for a detailed historical-theological interpretation of selected texts with a focus on topics related mainly to origin, mission, the mentality, the social status and actions of the Apostle Philip as Jesus' disciple within the community of the Twelve. The Licentiate Thesis also takes into account the occurrence of this character in non-biblical sources and his relation to the person of the same name, the deacon-evangelist Philip.
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...
If Christ has not been raised, our faith is futile (1 Cor 15:17). Christians and the Death from the point of View of the New Testament
Sluková, Jana ; Ryšková, Mireia (advisor) ; Scarano, Angelo (referee)
The aim of the work is to expound the Christian concept of death based on biblical texts. The opening chapter briefly deals with some passages of the Old Testament related to the subject. The section devoted to the New Testament focuses on the texts associated with the redemptive mission of Jesus Christ, from which Christian hope derives. The Exegesis of the 15th chapter of the First Epistle to the Corinthians provides more details of Paul's defence of the resurrection from the dead with regard to the doubts that have occured in this church community. The last part of the work tries to reflect on Christian faith face to face with death based on personal experience. This section also emphasizes the irreplaceable role of the Church, where faith is born, strengthened, shared and passed on in the community of mutual love that has the transcendent dimension.
