The Bible, the Jews, and the Passion [Newspaper Article] — C21 Resources — 1 September 2008
The Bible, the Jews, and the Passion BY EUGENE J. FISHER A week or so before Ash Wednesday in 2004, the Committee for Ecumenical Affairs of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops released a 150-page resource book for use by Catholic preachers, teachers, interested laity, and Catholic-Jewish dialogue groups. Entitled The Bible, the Jews and the Death of Jesus: A Collection of Catholic Documents, the publication brings together excerpts and in some cases entire documents from various levels of Catholic teaching (the Second Vatican Council, Pope John Paul 11, the Pontifical Biblical Commission, the Pontifical Commission for Religious Relations with the Jews, and the U.S.C.C.B. itself) pertinent to how the church reads its Scriptures, understands its relationship with Jews and Judaism, and understands and presents its everdeepening reflections on the saving mysteries of the passion and death of Christ, the one savior of humanity. In his introduction to this collection, Bishop Stephen E...
Telling the Terror of the Crucifixion [Newspaper Article] — C21 Resources — 1 September 2008
Telling the Terror of the Crucifixion BY BARBARA E. REID, O.P, Of all the "texts of terror" in the Bible, the one that stands out most vividly is the crucifixion of Jesus. It is at the very center of the Christian story and is told over and over in our liturgies, our classrooms, and our faith sharing. The Evangelists narrate Jesus' execution in the sparsest language. They provide very few details, stating simply: "and they crucified him" (Mark 15:24). We do not know whether the Evangelists thought there was no need to give the details since everyone in those days knew what was involved in The notion of a life sacrificed for others can be a terrorizing interpretation of the cross for persons who are in oppressive situations. crucifixion or whether it was too terrible to describe, or too gruesome to be spoken of in polite assemblies. What we do know is that the Gospel writers are not so much interested in telling what happened as what it means. Each Evangelist, along with Paul and the...
WHAT THE SECOND VATICAN COUNCIL SAID ABOUT THE BIBLE AND ITS INTERPRETATION [Newspaper Article] — C21 Resources — 1 September 2008
WHAT THE SECOND VATICAN COUNCIL SAID ABOUT THE BIBLE AND ITS INTERPRETATION The following are quotations taken from Vatican ll's Dogmatic Constitution on Divine Revelation (Dei verbum). The full document and many other official Roman Catholic statements can be found in Dean Bechard (ed.), The Scripture Documents: An Anthology of Official Catholic Teachings (Collegeville, MN: Liturgical Press, 2002). Interpreting the Bible as Both Divine and Human "Now since in Sacred Scripture God has spoken through human agents and in human fashion, the interpreter of Sacred Scripture, in order to ascertain what God himself wished to communicate to us, should carefully search out what the sacred writers truly intended to express and what God thought well to manifest by their word" (§ 12). "The interpreter must search for what meaning the sacred writer in his own historical situation, and in accordance with the conditions of his time and culture, intended to express and did in fact express with the ...
The 1Empty Tomb [Newspaper Article] — C21 Resources — 1 September 2008
The 1Empty Tomb BY GERALD O'COLLINS, S.J. As Easter comes round, many wonder how to understand the resurrection of Jesus Christ and its message for us. His empty tomb can make believers hesitant and even mildly embarrassed. Are they being innocendy orthodox or even naively realistic in accepting that several women found the tomb of Jesus open and empty on the first Easter day? Is the sign of the empty tomb so crudely physical that it has no place in an adult faith content to talk in more general terms of Jesus' victory over death? I wonder whether the real problem here is not with the historical case for the empty tomb but with its meaning. As such scholars as Raymond Brown, S.S., and others have shown, a reasonable argument can be mounted for the basic reliability of the empty tomb story. But the difficulty for many people may be with "What does it mean?" rather than with "Did it happen?" Until we appreciate the meaning of the empty tomb, merely historical arguments may seem somewh...
THOSE OTHER GOSPELS ... AND MORE • CHRISTOPHER R. MATTHEWS [Newspaper Article] — C21 Resources — 1 September 2008
THOSE OTHER GOSPELS ... AND MORE • CHRISTOPHER R. MATTHEWS In the first centuries of early Christianity, in addition to the writings that became part of the New Testament, numerous other documents were composed that made claims about the identity of Jesus and his importance. Such noncanonical or "apocryphal" texts present many sayings of Jesus and stories about him that are not found in the Bible. While some of the content found in these writings strikes a familiar chord with what the canonical Gospels and other New Testament writings tell us about Jesus, one also finds significant new subject matter as well as radical additions to and departures from the New Testament portrait of Jesus. Just several years ago, a recently discovered manuscript of such an apocryphal Gospel, the Gospel of Judas, was introduced to the general public with sensational claims about what it would reveal about the true nature of early Christianity. It turns out that the excitement generated by the announcem...
Lectio Divina [Newspaper Article] — C21 Resources — 1 September 2008
Lectio Divina BY JOHN BELMONTE, S.J, Bridging the Gap between God's Heart and Ours Talk show host Jay Leno has a very funny segment on his "Tonight Show" where he interviews the "man on the street," testing people's knowledge in a given subject matter. Rare is the person who does well. On one occasion, he asked questions about a topic that keenly interests me: the Bible. While the survey was hardly scientific, the questions were very basic. No historical-critical method here. "Name one of the Ten Commandments," Jay asked. "Freedom of speech," a man unhesitatingly responded. "Name the four Gospels," Jay asked. With a befuddled look, a woman was unable to answer. "Name the four Beades," Jay asked. Without any hesitation and a relieved smile, the woman responded, "John, Paul, George, and Ringo." My personal favorite was the man whom he asked, "In the Old Testament, who was swallowed by the whale?" He looked directly into the camera and, as serious as death, said, "Pinocchio." As someon...

Coming to Know Jesus through Contemplation of the Gospels [Newspaper Article] — C21 Resources — 1 September 2008
Coming to Know Jesus through Contemplation of the Gospels BY WILLIAM A. BARRY, S.J. If you are experiencing the desire to know Jesus more intimately, you can begin with some contemplation of the Gospels. Contemplation, as Ignatius means it, is a rather simple way of using the Gospels for prayer. You begin each period of prayer by expressing your desire to know Jesus more intimately in order to love him more deeply and follow him more closely. Then you read a passage of the Gospels and let it stimulate your imagination in the way a good novel can. People have different kinds of imaginations. Some are able to make something like a movie of each scene. They watch and listen as the scene unfolds in their imagination. I do not have that kind of imagination. I don't see anything, for the most part. My imagination is not pictorial; I seem to intuit the story or feel it. I was helped in understanding and trusting my imagination by realizing that I have visceral reactions to stories—l wince ...

Catholic Spirituality in Practice [Newspaper Article] — C21 Resources — 1 January 2009
Catholic Spirituality in Practice BY COLLEEN M. GRIFFITH " pirituality" is a buzzword in our time, one that generates much positive reception. Spiritual seekers abound, and there are myriad resources available to draw upon that bear the name "spiritual practice." Spiritual materials in bookstores and on the Internet continue to multiply at a staggering pace, as people from all walks of life and religious persuasions identify "becoming spiritual" as a primary life goal. The term "spirituality" may carry star power at the start of the twenty-first century, but there is much confusion about what it means. People find it perplexing to sort through everything that presents itself as spiritual practice. How does one decide about a spiritual practice? The task becomes all the more challenging when set against the back-drop of a growing popular assumption that spirituality and religion are separate entities. Scholars in the study of spirituality raise substantial concern about a widening gu...
