Kata Ioanne Euaggelio, apo ten Nea Diatheke tes Hagias Graphes

By: Anonimos

Tο κατά Ιωάννη Ευαγγέλιο παρουσιάζει τον Ιησού από την (Αρχή) , σαν τον αιώνιο Λόγο που γίνεται σάρκα. Όταν το Σάββατο θεραπεύει και όταν αποδεικνύει και φανερώνει τα Θεϊκά χαρακτηριστικά του προκαλεί τον θυμό και την αγανάκτηση των Ιουδαίων ηγετών. Προετοιμάζει τους μαθητές του για να δεχτούν τον σταυρικό θάνατο του και για την διακονία τους μετά τον θάνατο του. Πρόθυμα τελικά πεθαίνει στο σταυρό στην δική μας θέση. Αναστήνεται και πείθει ακόμα και τον Θωμά που αμφισβητεί την εμφάνιση του.

By: American Standard Version

The Gospel of Mark is a Gospel of the New Testament. It narrates the life of Jesus from John the Baptist to the Ascension, but it concentrates particularly on the last week of his life (chapters 11-16, the trip to Jerusalem).

Beyond Good and Evil

By: Friedrich Nietzsche

First published in 1886 at Nietzsche’s own expense, the book was not initially considered important. In it, Nietzsche denounced what he considered to be the moral vacuity of 19th century thinkers. He attacked philosophers for what he considered to be their lack of critical sense and their blind acceptance of Christian premises in their considerations of morality and values. Beyond Good and Evil is a comprehensive overview of Nietzsche’s mature philosophy. (Summary from Wikipedia)
