The Kingdom of God in the Synoptic Gospels as an Object and Source of Hope
Sluka, Jiří ; Brož, Jaroslav (advisor) ; Scarano, Angelo (referee)
The work has three main parts, one on the kingdom of God, one on hope, and one on the relationship between the kingdom of God and hope. The first part looks for all occurrences of the word "kingdom" in the New Testament and examines the differences between the terms "kingdom of God", "kingdom of heaven", and "kingdom of the Father". It then turns its attention to the meaning and content of the term kingdom of God. The section on hope presents historical and contemporary definitions of hope, types of hope according to psychological research of the last two decades, looks for the difference between the object and the source of hope, describes the specifics of Christian hope, and looks for reasons why the word "hope" does not appear in the Gospels. In the next section, the thesis defines 16 classes of statements about the kingdom of God in the Synoptic Gospels, categorizes each verse into groups, and evaluates them according to their relationship to hope. It locates and presents the principles, called the building blocks of Christian hope, that are based on the kingdom of God presented by Jesus in the Synoptic Gospels. It then draws from the results the benefits of hope for people in their efforts to enter the kingdom of God. The paper also presents some Gospel passages about the kingdom of God that...

Rychetský, Pavel ; Ryšková, Mireia (advisor) ; Scarano, Angelo (referee)
The thesis focuses on the representation of Christ as a Lamb in the Book of Revelati- on. The first chapter briefly states into the genre of the book and introduces its author, time and place of creation. The second chapter similarly briefly summarizes the main Old Testament sources, describes how John follows prophet tradition and, in a separate section, deals with Christological titles that have their foreshadow in the Old Testament and among which Christ presented as the Lamb has a prominent place. The following two chapters are the core of the thesis. First, it is an exegesis of the passages in which the Lamb person appears; related verses are also incorporated into the interpretation as needed. The following chapter deals with the individual titles and images that are told about Christ the Lamb in the Book of Revelation, their Old Testament prefigures and the interpretation of these images by the author of the Book of Revelation.

Healing miracles in the Gospel of Matthew as a foreshadowing of Jesus' soteriology
Brejla, Pavel ; Brož, Jaroslav (advisor) ; Scarano, Angelo (referee)
The thesis "Healing Miracles in the Gospel of Matthew, the Preface of Jesus' Soteriology" sets the task of briefly and clearly presenting Jesus' miracles of healing in the perspective of the post-Evangelical Jesus, as the evangelist Matthew writes about them. The introductory chapters are devoted to the individual miracles, which will be explained by a descriptive method, assess their technical side, their classification and storage within the framework of the Gospel as well as their content. The work then analyzes the individual miracles by the exegetic method, with an emphasis on the context of Jesus' forthcoming messianism. Jesus, through his miracles, presents the authority of the divine being, the Creator of heaven and earth, who has power over the laws of nature, but also over the diseases of death. The acts of healing are the messianic signs of the coming of the expected Jewish Messiah, the "wealthy king," who will deliver Israel from oppression. They attract the attention of John the Baptist, and Jesus presents to him the miracles of healing as proof of the fulfillment of the messianic expectation. In a separate chapter, the thesis analyzes the quote of the prophet Isaiah as presented by Matthew in Matthew 8,17. The evangelist sees the miracles here as a foreword to Jesus' soteriology, a...

Key words: Jesus Prayer, Gethsemane, the disciples, strength and weakness, vigilance, temptation, anxiety, sadness, exegesis.

The actual interpretation is preceded by textual criticism, suggesting of a possible structure of the text and a description of the circumstances.

John 4:4-42. Jesus and the Samaritan Woman
Kočica, Pavel ; Ryšková, Mireia (advisor) ; Scarano, Angelo (referee)
This thesis J 4,4-42: Jesus and the Samaritan woman deals with an exegesis of the conversation between Jesus and the Samaritan woman as well as with a deeper theological interpretation of themes from this conversation: living water and worshipping of God in Spirit and truth. At first, a langugage analysis is performed, because an exegesis of the text is based on it. The exegesis emphasises a place of the pericope in a context of John's gospel, stylistic specialities of John as well as a graduality in a knowledge of Jesus's truth identity from a perspective of the woman and Samaritan people from the town. It is pointed out that living water can be thought as all that Jesus gives to people here on earth for their redemption. Worshipping in Spirit and truth is interpreted as a relation of a man to God that is given by a personal presence of God in a human heart thanks to a faith in Jesus. Futhermore, the thesis is concerned with a description of Samaritan history from a biblical point of view as well as from a perspective of Samaritans themselves and with basic articles of the Samaritan religion that appear in the text (Mt. Gerizim, person of Taheb). What is also considered is a relevancy of the pericope nowadays from point of view of a man who is calling by God. Consequently, the text is given into a...
