Not illustrated. 1896 edition. Excerpt: ... THE GREAT MEANING OF THE WORD METANOIA: LOST IN THE OLD VERSION, UNRECOVERED IN THE NEW. THE NEW TESTAMENT IDEA OF METANOIA. METANOIA is the Greek word--and letter for letter an English one, if we desire it --which bears the sublime burden of the original proclamation of the gospel. It represents the first utterance of John the Baptist as the herald of the Christ, and the first utterance of Jesus the Christ as the herald of the kingdom of God. It was their summons to mankind, preceding the announcement of the power that was approaching, of the revelation that was at hand. If we recur to the image involved in the words "herald," "proclamation"--the image implied in the narrative--it was the note of a trumpet outside the walls, and the call of a messenger to open the gates. In order the better to get at its meaning, let us now imagine some one who has never read the English New Testament, and who has had no especial bias given to his ideas by any theological system. All we will suppose for him is a knowledge of Greek and a spiritual instinct which will enable him to rise into the frequent transcendental meaning of the Greek of the New Testament. He knows enough to know that he is dealing with the record of a divine revolution in the affairs of men, and that the human language to which the account was committed is struggling to utter adequately the depth of inspiration behind it. He knows that the record was committed to writing only after the bearings of the history were fully understood and the conception of its meaning was fully matured. He knows that what is before him is a condensation as to events, and a translation as to ideas; in other words, if we confine the remark to the four gospels, that the historical part is as brief as it is...

From the PREFACE.The first of these essays appeared in the "American Church Review" for July, 1881 - following the memorable day in May when the Revised Version of the New Testament was issued. The paper was soon afterwards reprinted separately, and in 1882 was put into book form by the present publisher.Although its point was made timely by the revision, and by the astonishing fact that, in a work expressly undertaken in this age to correct the misapprehensions of a former age, a mistranslation involving such consequences had been over-passed and perpetuated, yet the Essay did not set out to be a criticism of the New Version in this particular. It could not help falling into something like it, but its main purpose was to draw attention to, and to be a popular exposition of, a word in whose enormous potentiality of meaning lay, as I believed, a more true and more catholic, a more spiritual and more philosophical, interpretation of Christianity. The Essay could have done as well for this-with a little modification-if the revisers had adopted a new rendering which was, in any degree, sympathetic with the real import of the original.As such, I am glad to say-after the novelty of the New Version had passed-the Essay seems to have been accepted: simply as an exposition in itself, that might at any time be in order; and as a contribution, called for under the circumstances, to the knowledge and the spirit which ought to inspire that comprehensive English expression or that happy combination of words-varying according to their connection in the text -which may venture sometime hence to represent the idea of (Metanoia); a word of whose fullness, in its initial position, the New Testament itself can be the only adequate translation, for, in that initial position, it is the key-note of its whole strain.There was nothing new in the view itself. If there had been, it could not have been true. It was as old as the apostolic age. And the revival of it was only an attempt to uncover and clear out a partially choked well.The Greek expression lay directly under the eye of any reader of the original, manifestly opening down to a great depth, provided his eye was disengaged enough from prepossessions to be alive to the fact. The word bore the hint of what it was on its very face: an intimation that the whole inward nature of man was appealed to, all its springs of action, all its possibilities of affection. Every scholar was aware of its literal meaning- and that meaning alone was in itself enough to suggest the dropping of an exploring plummet. Why this was not done, why what was so obvious was overlooked, perhaps the second Essay may explain....

Excerpt from An Undeveloped Chapter in the Life of Christ: The Great Meaning of the Word Metanoia, Lost in the Old Version, Unrecovered in the New In the very outset of the life of Christ he comes upon the word Metanoi'a and in a connection which gives it the all-prominent place. He takes in the' significance of its position at once. It conveys the summons Of the herald, and of the herald who was freighted with the good news which the whole New Testament afterwards unfolds. Here in epitome, he naturally thinks, must be all the high Call ing of God. No word therefore in the New Testament can be greater' than this. Hence he must interpret it as a condensed expression of what was originally said in large, and as an expression, also, which was fixed upon long after the event, when everything was understood, as the fit one to carry the'-.great burden. If this is its anticipatory reach, if this is its heralding grasp, he naturally sets about inquiring what is its history and what its elementary weight. When we imagine such a fresh reader of the Greek Testament as this, we place ourselves in the situation to pursue his inquiry. The literal meaning of Metanoia, or rather, the nearest expression to it in English, is Change of Mind, a phrase too much worn by familiar use to be available as a rendering, but an idea capable of many equivalent variations in the English tongue. It will be more convenient, however, for our present purpose to employ the phrase as if its native force had not been thus impaired. What word is more expressive than Change what more comprehensive than Mind. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.

Religion has played a major role in history, affecting the course of events and influencing individuals. Today one frequently hears the expression "the return of religion" but opinions differ as to how this "return" is to be understood. It is clear that modernity and postmodernity have not meant that religion is dead or relegated to society's backyards. Religion is still of vital importance for many people. It has, to some extent, changed shape but has not lost its legitimacy and attractiveness to broad groups. Religion is public, visible, and has a sought-for voice; but it is also wrestling with extremism, ignorance, and preconceptions. Just like ideologies, religions are capable of activating diametrically opposite traits in humans. It is this dual tension that is implicit in the question mark in this book's title: Mending the World? This book's aim is to help explore whether, how, and in what ways religion, church, and theology can contribute constructively to the future of a global society. In thirty-one chapters, researchers from around the world address the relation between religion and society.

"The contents of this volume consist largely of the Smyth Lectures delivered at Columbia Theological Seminary, 1941. Chapters III and VI have been completely rewritten and there has been some revision in each of the other four. The conclusions stated in these chapters have grown out of firsthand investigation of the materials lying in the twenty-seven 'canonical books' of the New Testament. The method pursued has been to study the New Testament directly, rather than to read what others say about it. It is an increasingly strong conviction with me that we as ministers have not done enough of this kind of study. Reference to the various theories of authorship, date, and provenance of the 'books' has been studiously avoided, for the simple reason that I wanted to examine the New Testament as a body of writings expressing the convictions and faith of the Early Church." --From the Preface

Metanoia always has a negative rather than a positive meaning in the Greek literature of that period. Thus, in Epictetus you find the idea that we must get rid of the erroneous judgments we may have in our heads.

The Hermeneutics of the Subject is the third volume in the collection of Michel Foucault's lectures at the Collège de France, one of the world's most prestigious institutions. Faculty at the Collège give public lectures, in which they present works-in-progress on any subject of their choosing. Foucault's wide-ranging lectures influenced his groundbreaking works like The History of Sexuality and Discipline and Punish. In the lectures comprising this volume, Foucault focuses on how the "self" and the "care of the self" were convinced during the period of antiquity, beginning with Socrates. The problems of the ethical formation of the self, Foucault argues, form the background for our own questions about subjectivity and remain at the center of contemporary moral thought. This series of lectures throws new light on Foucault's final works and shows the full depth of his engagement with ancient thought. Lucid and provocative, The Hermeneutics of the Subject reveals Foucault at the height of his powers.

Matthew describes the beginning of Jesus's ministry with the summary words, ""μετανοεῖτε (repent/turn), for the kingdom of heaven is at hand"" (3:2; 4:17). Why does Matthew use this command, μετανοεῖτε, at the beginning of his ministry, and how does it relate to the rest of the Gospel? What do μετανοέω and μετάνοια mean? Scholars have stated that μετανοέω in 4:17 has critical value for understanding Matthew because the verse functions as a summary statement (or key phrase) of Jesus's public ministry and teaching. This book argues the thematic significance of μετάνοια (turning/repentance) in the Gospel of Matthew. The lexical idea of μετανοέω and μετάνοια involves a turning of mind (or heart, will, thinking) and behavior, and so in turn of one's whole being and life. This opening commandment of turning (μετανοέω), especially the concept, the essence, and the contents is fully revealed throughout the body of Matthew in various ways. Discipleship, the language of righteousness, doing the will of God, changing one's heart and mind, the Great Commission, and Matthean soteriological theme convey the essence of μετάνοια and the contents of the fruit worthy of μετάνοια(3:2, 8; 4:17). The five major teaching blocks (5-7; 10; 13; 18; 23-25) teach the theme and the content of μετάνοια.
