Michael Peppard provides a historical and theological reassessment of the oldest Christian building ever discovered, the third-century house-church at Dura-Europos. Contrary to commonly held assumptions about Christian initiation, Peppard contends that rituals here did not primarily embody notions of death and resurrection. Rather, he portrays the motifs of the church’s wall paintings as those of empowerment, healing, marriage, and incarnation, while boldly reidentifying the figure of a woman formerly believed to be a repentant sinner as the Virgin Mary. This richly illustrated volume is a breakthrough work that enhances our understanding of early Christianity at the nexus of Bible, art, and ritual.

Die 1932 am Westufer des Euphrats in Salihijeh (Syrien) ausgegrabene christliche Hauskirche des antiken Ortes Dura Europos aus dem Jahre 256/7 n.Chr. enthielt in ihrem Baptisterium verschiedene Fresken. Ulrich Mell widmet sich vornehmlich der Interpretation dieser Bilder, die neben den Malereien in den Katakomben der Stadt Rom zu den ältesten christlichen Kunstwerken zählen.Mell erläutert die Archäologie und Geschichte des christlichen Hauses von Dura Europos im Rahmen der politischen Geschichte des Ortes, der in der Mitte des 3. Jh. n.Chr.Die nur fragmentarisch erhaltenen Bilder der »Taufkapelle« werden ikonografisch besprochen. Da sie Texte aus dem Alten wie Neuen Testament ins Bild setzen, werden sie ikonologisch im biblischen Kontext interpretiert. Hinsichtlich der Interpretation des dreiteiligen Auferstehungszyklus’ mit fünf Frauengestalten geht Ulrich Mell auf den neutestamentlichen Schriftenkanon der altsyrische Kirche ein. Dieser kennt im Unterschied zur westlich-römischen Tradition statt vier Evangelienbücher nur eine Evangelienharmonie, nämlich das sogenannte Diatessaron des syrischen Kirchenvaters Tatian.Das Buch schließt mit Überlegungen, wie die heutige Neutestamentliche Wissenschaft mit der Pluralität von vier Evangelienschriften umgeht, und stellt sich der historisch-literarischen Frage nach Frauen als Zeuginnen der Auferstehung Jesu Christi.

Is The World S Oldest Bible A Fake

Modern research techniques have revealed a hidden scheme aimed at God's Holy Words... Modern Bibles have changed many verses because of the discovery of an "ancient" manuscript in a monastery on the Sinai Peninsula. The manuscript, called Sinaiticus, is claimed to be the earliest complete copy of the New Testament. Its discoverer, who was a world leading Bible scholar in his time, told the world Sinaiticus was from the 4th century and that it was the "oldest and best" Bible available. Publishers rushed to make new Bibles with many changes to match it. But not everyone agreed. When this famed 19th century Bible scholar, Constantine Von Tischendorf, claimed the ancient date, a well-known Greek calligrapher said, "No! I made that document!" But why did no one believe him? Maybe it's because pages of the manuscript were stored where no one could view them, archived in exclusive collections across several continents. Now, an international group has carefully photographed each page of Sinaiticus and is displaying it on the internet as high-quality digital images. For the first time, Bible scholars and students can see the entire manuscript together, as was never possible before. And what they are seeing with their own eyes is shocking. Some of the pages are white and look quite new, while others have been darkened to make them look very old. If they are all from the same "old" Bible, how can this be? Researcher David W. Daniels proves with easy-to-understand evidence that the Sinaiticus is not the oldest manuscript and certainly not the best, either. He is also convincing in showing it's not old after all and that the Greek calligrapher did make it, in the 19th century. The textual (and doctrinal) changes in modern Bibles are based upon a fake —a shadowy scheme worthy of Satan's hatred for the preserved words of God.
