1910 New Catholic Dictionary - Faith, Good
A phrase used in allusion to the holding of an erroneous belief, that is objectively untrue, due to invincible ignorance. Thus one may sincerely believe the errors of an heretical sect and be saved. Generally, such an honest state of mind should be corrected, except when prudence demands silence for the sake of a greater good, private or public. Good faith is also necessary to prescription.

1910 New Catholic Dictionary - Our Lady of Good Counsel
A title given to the miraculous picture of the Madonna at Genazzano, honored particularly in the Order of Saint Augustine. The devotion arose from the legend that the Madonna of Genazzano was miraculously transported from Albania into Italy, accompanying across the Adriatic two Christians who fled from the Mussulman invasion. It rested in the Augustinian Church, 1467. The feast was instituted by Benedict XIII in 1727, but is not in the universal calendar. Pope Leo XIII added the title "Mother of Good Counsel" to the Litany of Loreto.

New Catholic Dictionary and Catholic Encyclopedia
1910 New Catholic Dictionary - Moral Good
Constitutes the natural end and perfection (in the supernatural order, the supernatural end) of the highest vital appetite of man's rational nature. God, the source of all created being and goodness, is also the last end of man, the Supreme Good "Who satisfieth thy desire" (Psalms 103). Imperfect goods of particular appetites are really good only when. ordained to the attainment of man's perfection or last end. These are generally classified as: (a) external goods, (b) goods of body, and (c) goods of soul. While the goodness or badness of many acts is determined by positive law, yet ultimately, the distinction between good and evil is a natural one, right rational nature constituting the proximate norm of morality and the Divine Nature or Reason the ultimate norm. An act is morally good when directed by reason to man's ultimate end, i.e.,when in conformity with right rational nature; otherwise it is evil. Some objects are naturally suitable, others unsuitable, to human nature. Hence there exists a distinction between moral good and evil, which has its origin in the nature of things; acts such as blasphemy, idolatry, lying, etc., being intrinsically evil, others such as the worship of God, pursuit of truth, etc., being by their very nature good. Although some actions, such as walking, etc., considered in the abstract, may be termed indifferent, yet every concrete human act is either morally good or bad to the extent that it conforms to the moral law, or leads towards or away from man's final end. This quality of moral goodness, which may be increased or diminished, is dependent on three factors: (a) the object of the act itself, (b) the purpose or end of the agent, and (c) the circumstances of the act. To be morally good all three elements of the act must be in conformity with the standards of morality, while if one of these determinants be evil the act itself will be morally bad.
1910 New Catholic Dictionary - Friday, Good
Friday in Holy Week, anniversary of the death of Christ, on which the Passion and Crucifixion of Christ are commemorated; a day of fasting and penance from the earliest ages of the Church. Black vestments are worn by the priest, and until the Mass the altar is covered July by a single linen cloth and there are no lights. The morning services are in three parts: a Prophecy; Lesson from the Scriptures, the reading of the Passion and prayers for all mankind, the unveiling and adoration of the Cross, accompanied by the chanting of the Improperia; and the Mass of the Presanctified, before which the Host, already consecrated on Holy Thursday, is taken in solemn procession from the Altar of Repose to the main altar. It is not a Mass properly speaking, as there is no consecration, but the Host is incensed, elevated before the people, and consumed by the priest. Holy Communion is given to the faithful only in case of sickness. It is customary to have services from twelve noon until three in commemoration of the Three Hours Agony of Christ, and the office of Tenebrae is sung in the evening.
1910 New Catholic Dictionary - Good Shepherd, Parable of the
Our Lord means to teach in this parable (Matthew 18) the care and love of God for the little ones, that is to say the weak, of whom He thinks so much that He has placed them under the protection of His angels. God wishes that not one of them should become lost; hence the duty of looking after them to secure their salvation. The lesson is conveyed in the parable of the lost sheep; a shepherd with a flock of 100 sheep will leave the 99 that are not in danger and in no special need of his care, in order to look for the one that has been lost, and will not give up the search until he has found the lost one. This parable resembles very closely that in Luke 15, and so quite naturally the two parables are commonly identified. The differences between them are of the kind that may be expected in two parallel versions of the same discourse, teaching essentially the same lesson; the value of the soul in the eyes of God, whence flows the necessity of doing everything to reclaim one on the way to perdition, the point brought out especially by Saint Matthew, and the joy of God over the conversion of the sinner, the point brought out especially by Saint Luke.
1910 New Catholic Dictionary - Good Thief
Traditionally known as Dismas, one of the thieves crucified with Christ, who rebuked his companion for demanding that Christ should save them, prayed instead a share in His Kingdom, and received the assurance: "This day thou shalt be with Me in paradise." A portion of the cross on which he died is preserved in the Chapel of Relics, Santa Croce in Gerusalemme, Rome. He is patron of persons condemned to death.

Baker's Evangelical Dictionary of Biblical Theology - Good, Goodness
The main Old Testament words for good/goodness come from the Hebrew word tob [ Genesis 6:2 ; 24:16 ; 26:7 ; 2 Samuel 11:2 ; Esther 1:11 ; 2:2-3,7 ) and a "good" man is handsome (1 Samuel 9:2 ). A land may be good (Deuteronomy 1:25,35 ) and so may gold (2 Chronicles 3:5,8 ), soil (Luke 8:8 ), a tree (Matthew 7:17 ), wine (John 2:10 ), or all of creation (seven times in Genesis 1 ). But the most theologically important uses of these words have to do with moral qualities.
God's goodness is a bedrock truth of Scripture. His goodness is praised in the psalms (25:8; 34:8; 86:5; 100:5; 118:1; 136:1; 145:9). Jesus affirms the Father's goodness when speaking to the rich young ruler (Matthew 19:17 ; Mark 10:18 ; Luke 18:19 ). In 1 Peter 2:3 Peter echoes the language of Psalm 34:8 : "Taste and see that the Lord is good!"'
Although we might discuss God's goodness in some abstract philosophical sense, in Scripture his goodness appears most clearly in his dealings with people. He is not only good in general, but he is good to us ( Psalm 23:6 ; 68:10 ; 73:1 ; 119:65 ; 145:9 ; Lamentations 3:25 ; Luke 6:35 ; Romans 2:4 ; 11:22 ; Ephesians 2:7 ; Titus 3:4 ). Human goodness is modeled on divine goodness (Matthew 5:48 ). For human beings goodness involves right behavior, expresses itself in kindness and other praiseworthy qualities, includes avoiding evil, and springs from the inner person.
It is nearly impossible to think about goodness in the abstract. In Scripture goodness always involves particular ways of behaving. Because God is good, he is good to his people; when people are good they behave decently toward each other, based on God's goodness to them. Moses' invitation to Hobab expresses this emphasis: "Come with us and we will treat you well, for the Lord has promised good things to Israel" (Numbers 10:29 ). The general biblical words for "good/ goodness" include this idea of right behavior, although the idea is often expressed by means of a more specific term like "upright/uprightness" or "righteous/righteousness."
The goodness God's people exhibit shows itself in various moral qualities, notably kindness; hesed [1], translated "goodness" or "kindness, " serves as one of the major synonyms of tob [2], "good, " in the Old Testament. In the New Testament many words describe the specific characteristics and behaviors of good people, including "just/justice, " "righteous/ righteousness, " "holy/holiness, " "pure/ purity, " "gentle/gentleness, " and "kind/kindness." If "goodness" is the general term, these other specific terms show what goodness means in daily living.
Goodness involves not only right behavior but also avoiding its opposite, evil. The choice between good and evil has lain before people since the garden of Eden when Adam and Eve ate fruit from the "tree of the knowledge of good and evil" (Amos 5:14-15 ). Since then God's curse has fallen on "those who call evil good and good evil, who put darkness for light and light for darkness, who put bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter" (Isaiah 5:20 ). A wise ruler like Solomon, or indeed anyone who wants to obey God, needs the wisdom to tell good from evil (1 Kings 3:9 ; Hebrews 5:14 ). Those who serve God will "seek good, not evil, hate evil, love good" (Genesis 2:9 ).
For the Christian or the faithful Israelite, goodness has never been a matter of outward behavior alone; it comes from within. An evil person is evil within (Genesis 6:5 ; Mark 7:14-23 ; and parallels). In the same way a good person's good behavior shows a good heart (Matthew 12:33-35 ).
In the Old Testament God's goodness to his people and their goodness in response is based on the covenant between them. God's appeal to his people to return to the covenant relationship finds expression in a call to simple goodness (Micah 6:6-8 ). In the New Testament goodness is a fruit of the Spirit (Galatians 5:22 ), while moral excellence is one of the steps on the "ladder of virtue" (2 Peter 1:5 ).

Charles Buck Theological Dictionary - Good Friday
A fast of the Christian church, in memory of the sufferings and death of Jesus Christ. It is observed on the Friday in Passion Week, and it is called, by way of eminence, good; because of the good effects of our Saviour's sufferings. Among the Saxons it was called Long Friday; but for what reason does not appear, except on account of the long fasting and long offices then used.

Charles Spurgeon's Illustration Collection - Doing Good: a Blessing to Ourselves
If we view this microcosm, the human body, we shall fin that the heart does not receive the blood to store it up, but while it pumps it in at one valve, it sen4s it forth at another The blood is always circulating everywhere, and is stagnant nowhere; the same is true of all the fluids in a health3 body, they are in a constant state of expenditure. If one ccl) stores for a few moments its peculiar secretion, it only retains it till it is perfectly fitted for its appointed use in the body; for if any cell in the body should begin to store up its secretion, its store would soon become the cause of inveterate disease; nay, the organ would soon lose the power to secrete at all, if it did not give forth its products. The whole b1 the human system lives by giving. The eye cannot say to the foot, I have no need of thee, and will not guide thee; for if it does not perform its watchful office, the whole man will be in the ditch, and the eye will be covered with mire. If the members refuse to contribute to the general stock, the whole body will become poverty-stricken, and be given up to the bankruptcy of death. Let us learn, then, from the analogy of nature, the great lesson, that to get, we must give; that to accumulate, we must scatter; that to make ourselves happy, we must make others happy; and that to get good and become spiritually vigorous, we must do good, and seek the spiritual good of others.
Charles Buck Theological Dictionary - Good
In general, is whatever increases pleasure, or diminishes pain in us; or, which amounts to the same, whatever is able to procure or preserve to us the possession of agreeable sensations, and remove those of an opposite nature. Moral good denotes the right conduct of the several senses and passions, or their just proportion and accommodation to their respective objects and relations. Physical good is that which has either generally, or for any particular end, such qualities as are expected or desired.
Charles Spurgeon's Illustration Collection - Charity: Spies Out the Good Points in All
Mr. Jameson says, 'The following beautiful epilogue had a powerful effect on my mind;'–'Jesus,' says the story, 'arrived one evening at the gates of a certain city, and he sent his disciples forward to prepare supper while he himself, intent on doing good, walked through the streets into the market-place. And he saw, at the corner of the market, some people gathered together looking at an object on the ground; and he drew near to see what it might be. It was a dead dog with a halter round his neck, by which he appeared to have been dragged through the dirt; and a viler, a more abject ,a more unclean thing never met the eyes of man. And those who stood by looked on with abhorrence, 'Faugh!' said one, stopping his nose, ' it pollutes the air!' 'How long,' said another, 'shall this foul beast offend our sight?' 'Look at his torn hide,' said a third, 'one could not even cut a shoe out of it.' 'And his ears,' said a fourth, 'all draggled and bleeding.' 'No doubt,' said a fifth, 'he has been hanged for thieving.' And Jesus heard them, and looking down compassionately on the dead creature, he said, 'Pearls are not equal to the whiteness of his teeth.' Then the people turned to him with amazement, and said among themselves, 'Who is this? This must be Jesus of Nazareth, for only he could find something to pity and approve even in a dead dog.' And, being ashamed, they bowed their heads before him, and went each on his way.'
'I can recall at this hour the vivid, yet softening and pathetic, impression left on my fancy by this old Eastern story. It gave me pain in my conscience, for it seemed thenceforward so easy and so vulgar to say satirical things, and so much nobler to be benign and merciful; and I took the lesson so home that I was in great danger of falling into the opposite extreme: of seeking the beautiful even in the midst of the corrupt and the repulsive.'
Hastings' Dictionary of the New Testament - Samaritan, the Good
SAMARITAN, THE GOOD (Luke 10:25-37).—Jesus had bidden His last farewell to Galilee, and was travelling to Jerusalem (Luke 9:51). He had passed through Samaria and reached Judaea, and in some town on the route, probably Jericho, He visited the synagogue,* [1] as He was wont (cf. Luke 4:16), and discoursed to the congregation. It was customary for the hearers, when the preacher had concluded, to ask him questions,† [2] and so it happened on this occasion. One of those whose business was the interpretation of the sacred Law, rose and asked, ‘Teacher, what shall I do to inherit “eternal life”?’ He was no anxious inquirer. He thought to display his superior knowledge, and humble Jesus before the congregation; and his question was a foretaste of the dialectical warfare which awaited Jesus in Jerusalem, and which reached its climax in that succession of encounters with the rulers in the Temple court during the Passion week. Nor was Jesus deceived. ‘What stands written in the Law?’ He asked, ‘how readest thou?’ Glad to display his theological proficiency, the lawyer glibly replied, ‘Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with thy whole heart, and with thy whole soul, and with thy whole strength, and with thy whole mind, and thy neighbour as thyself.’ Jesus accepted the answer: ‘Thou hast answered rightly. This do, and thou shalt live.’ The lawyer was an astute controversialist, and he perceived a new opening for disputation. ‘Neighbour’ was defined both by the Law and by the Rabbis as a fellow-Israelite, ‘a son of thy people,’‡ [3] and he expected that Jesus would give the word a larger significance, thus exposing Himself to a charge of heresy. He clutched at the opportunity. ‘And who,’ he asked, ‘is my “neighbour”?’ Jesus answered with a parable.
The road from Jericho to Jerusalem had a very evil reputation. It wound up barren and rugged hills, infested by brigands, who assailed travellers, robbing and sometimes murdering them; and from those deeds of violence it derived a ghastly name—the Ascent of Blood.§ [4] It was much frequented. It was the highway between the capital and the prosperous City or Palm-trees; and, moreover, since half of the officiating ‘course’ lodged at Jericho, where provision was abundant,|| [5] there were continually priests and Levites passing to and fro. Jesus told how a man, travelling down the Ascent of Blood, was set upon by brigands, plundered, maltreated, and left half-dead. Presently a priest came down the road, and, when he spied the wretch, he ‘passed by on the other side.’ Next came a Levite, and he behaved with like inhumanity. Then came one riding on an ass, a merchant probably, who often passed that way in the prosecution of his business.¶ [6] Since the holy men had ‘passed by on the other side,’ it would have been no marvel had he done the like, especially since he was a Samaritan, one of that hated race with which the Jews had no dealings. But he was moved by the piteous spectacle, and, dismounting, he dressed the sufferer’s wounds, according to the medical prescription of that day, with oil and wine;** [7] then he mounted him on his beast, and conveyed him to an inn and tended him. Those offices of humanity detained him from his journey, and he rose betimes ‘toward the morrow’ (ἐπὶ τὴν αὔριον), to push forward. But ere he set out he handed the host two denarii, and bade him see to the unfortunate man until he should be fit for the road. Since a denarius was a day’s wage,* [8] the two would probably suffice; but in case of need he enjoined that no expense be spared, undertaking to settle the account on his return journey.
‘Which of these three,’ says Jesus, ‘seemeth to thee to have proved “neighbour” to the man that fell in with the brigands?’ Only one answer was possible. The lawyer should have replied, ‘The Samaritan’; but he could not endure to utter the odious name, and he reluctantly faltered out, ‘The one that took pity on him.’ ‘Go thy way,’ said Jesus; ‘do thou also likewise.’ It was a masterpiece of dialectic. He had avoided entanglement in an unprofitable and perilous controversy, and had forced His adversary to pronounce judgment on himself. See also art. Neighbour.

Easton's Bible Dictionary - Tree of the Knowledge of Good And Evil
Stood in the midst of the garden of Eden, beside the tree of life (Genesis 23,3 ). Adam and Eve were forbidden to take of the fruit which grew upon it. But they disobeyed the divine injunction, and so sin and death by sin entered our world and became the heritage of Adam's posterity. (See ADAM .)
Easton's Bible Dictionary - Works, Good
The old objection against the doctrine of salvation by grace, that it does away with the necessity of good works, and lowers the sense of their importance (Romans 6 ), although it has been answered a thousand times, is still alleged by many. They say if men are not saved by works, then works are not necessary. If the most moral of men are saved in the same way as the very chief of sinners, then good works are of no moment. And more than this, if the grace of God is most clearly displayed in the salvation of the vilest of men, then the worse men are the better. The objection has no validity. The gospel of salvation by grace shows that good works are necessary. It is true, unchangeably true, that without holiness no man shall see the Lord. "Neither adulterers, nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards" shall inherit the kingdom of God.
Works are "good" only when, (1) they spring from the principle of love to God. The moral character of an act is determined by the moral principle that prompts it. Faith and love in the heart are the essential elements of all true obedience. Hence good works only spring from a believing heart, can only be wrought by one reconciled to God (Ephesians 2:10 ; James 2:18:22 ).).
Good works have the glory of God as their object; and (3) they have the revealed will of God as their only rule (Deuteronomy 12:32 ; Revelation 22:18,19 ). Good works are an expression of gratitude in the believer's heart (John 14:15,23 ; Galatians 5:6 ). They are the fruits of the Spirit (Titus 2:10-12 ), and thus spring from grace, which they illustrate and strengthen in the heart.
Good works of the most sincere believers are all imperfect, yet like their persons they are accepted through the mediation of Jesus Christ (Colossians 3:17 ), and so are rewarded; they have no merit intrinsically, but are rewarded wholly of grace.
Holman Bible Dictionary - Good
In contrast to the Greek view of “the good” as an ideal, the biblical concept focuses on concrete experiences of what God has done and is doing in the lives of God's people. Scripture affirms that God is and does good (1 Chronicles 16:34 ; Psalm 119:68 ). The goodness of God is experienced in the goodness of God's creative work (Genesis 1:31 ) and in God's saving acts (liberation of Israel from Egypt, Exodus 18:9 ; return of a remnant from captivity, Ezra 7:9 ; personal deliverance, Psalm 34:8 ; salvation, Philippians 1:6 ). God's goodness is extended to God's name (Psalm 52:9 ), God's promises (Joshua 21:45 ), God's commands (Psalm 119:39 ; Romans 7:12 ), God's gifts (James 1:17 ), and God's providential shaping of events (Genesis 50:20 ; Romans 8:28 ). Though God alone is truly good (Psalm 14:1 ,Psalms 14:1,14:3 ; Mark 10:18 ), Scripture repeatedly speaks of good persons who seek to live their lives in accordance with God's will. Christians have been saved in order to do good (Ephesians 2:10 ; Colossians 1:10 ) with the Holy Spirit's help.

Plutarch says that among the Persians those persons were considered most beautiful who were hawk-nosed, for no other reason than that Cyrus had such a nose. In Richard the Third's court humps upon the back were the height of fashion. According as the various potentates who have condescended to rule mankind have lisped, or stuttered, or limped, or squinted, or spoken through their noses, these infirmities have been elevated into graces and commanded the admiration of silly mortals. But is there not more than a possibility that what we ridicule in the kingdoms of earth may have its counterpart in the church? Is there not a tendency among Christians to imitate the spiritual infirmities of their religious leaders, or oftener still of departed saints? We may follow holy men so far as they follow Christ; the mischief is that we do not readily stop where we should, but rather where we should not. Bunyan, Whitfield, Wesley, Calvin, Luther, yes, by all means imitate them: but not indiscriminately, not slavishly, or you will do so ridiculously. One is your Master, to copy him in every jot and tittle will be safe enough.

Quick must be the hand if an impression is to be made upon the melted wax. Once let the wax cool and you will press the seal in vain. Cold and hard it will be in a few moments, therefore let the work be quickly done. When men's hearts are melted under the preaching of the Word, or by sickness, or the loss of friends, believers should be very eager to stamp the truth upon the prepared mind. Such opportunities are to be seized with holy eagerness. Reader, do you know of such? If you be a lover of the Lord Jesus, hasten with the seal before the wax is cool.

Alexander Von Humboldt thus writes of the cow-tree:: 'On the barren flank of a rock grows a tree with coriaceous and dry leaves. Its large woody roots can scarcely penetrate into the stone. For several months of the year not a single shower moistens its foliage. Its branches appear dead and dried; but when the trunk is pierced there flows from it a sweet and nourishing milk. It is at the rising of the sun that this vegetable fountain is most abundant. The negroes and natives are then seen hastening from all quarters, furnished with large bowls to receive the milk, which grows yellow, and thickens at its surface. Some empty their bowls under the tree itself, others carry the juice borne to their children.'
May not the earnest Christian ministering good on all sides be imaged in this marvelous tree? He is in his own esteem full often a withered and dead tree, but there is within him a living sap, which wells up with blessing t all around. His surroundings are all against him, the soil in which he grows is hostile to grace, yet he not only lives on, but luxuriates. He derives nothing from earth, his fountain is from above, but he enriches the sons of earth with untold blessings, and though they often wound him they experimentally know his value. To him full many of the poor and needy look up as to a friend in need, he is full of the milk of human kindness; where he cannot give in golden coin he distributes comfort in sympathy and words of cheer.

An old man in Watton, whom Mr. Thornton had in vain urged to come to church, was taken ill and confined to his bed. Mr. Thornton went to the cottage, and asked to see him. The old man, hearing his voice below, answered, in no very courteous tone, 'I don't want you here, you may go away.' The following day the curate was again at the foot of the stairs. 'Well, my friend, may I come up to-day, and sit beside you?' Again he received the same reply, 'I don't want you here.' Twenty-one days successively Mr. T. paid his visit to the cottage, and on the twenty-second his perseverance was rewarded. He was permitted to enter the room of the aged sufferer, to read the Bible, and pray by his bedside. The poor man recovered, and became one of the most regular attendants at the house of God.----Memoirs of Rev. Spencer Thornton.

In a hot summer's-day, some years ago, I was sailing with a friend in a tiny boat, on a miniature lake, enclosed like a cup within a circle of steep, bare Scottish hills. On the shoulder of the brown sun-burnt mountain, and full in sight, was a well with a crystal stream trickling over its lip, and making its way down towards the lake. Around the well's mouth and along the course of the rivulet, a belt of green stood out in strong contrast with the iron surface of the rocks all around. We soon agreed as to what should be made of it. There it was, a legend clearly printed by the finger of God on the side of these silent hills, teaching the passer-by how needful a good man is, and how useful he may be in a desert world.: W. Arnot.
Hastings' Dictionary of the New Testament - Good
The adj. ‘good’ (ἀγαθός, καλός) may be used of any quality, physical as well as moral, thing, or person that may be approved as useful, fit, admirable, right. In the moral sense it connotes in the NT not only righteousness but kindness, helpfulness, love. For Jesus, God alone was “nod without limitation or qualification (Mark 10:18, Luke 18:19); and while His own moral discipline on earth was going on, He disclaimed that epithet for Himself (cf. Matthew 19:17, with its attempt to escape the apparent difficulty of the disclaimer). This Divine perfection is shown in an impartial, universal beneficence (Matthew 5:45), which men are to imitate (Matthew 5:48). The same conviction of what God is, and what man, therefore, should be, is found in St. Paul’s counsels (Ephesians 4:31-32; Ephesians 5:1-2). Jesus Himself is the expression and activity of this Divine perfection, and so it is characteristic of Him to go about ‘doing good’ (Acts 10:38), as He Himself indicates in His reply to the Baptist (Matthew 11:4-5); and this, too, He enjoin as the practice of His disciples (Luke 6:27; cf. Matthew 25:31 ff., Romans 3:22-26 Luke 19:8-9). St. Paul echoes the teaching of Jesus when he bids the Romans ‘overcome evil with good’ (Romans 12:21), and assures them that such conduct will have its reward (2 Corinthians 3:5-6). The distinction St. Paul makes between ‘a righteous man ‘and ‘the good man’ (Romans 5:7) deserves special attention. Just as God because He is righteous reckons righteous (Romans 3:26), so it is because God is good in Himself that He is ever showing His goodness to all men, especially in Christ and His Cross (Romans 5:8, Ephesians 4:32) and calling all men to be the imitators of His goodness (1 Corinthians 13).
Although the following article is dealing with the Christian moral ideal as ‘goodness,’ this brief statement in introducing the subject of ‘the good’ as man’s ‘chief end’ has been made for two reasons. (a) In the Christian view, God Himself is man’s chief good, for in His fellowship alone is man’s perfection, glory, and blessedness, and it is God’s goodness that man enjoys for ever; and (b) it is because of this goodness-this self-giving of God’s perfection as love-that the chief good is given to man. It is in Christ that man so possesses God, and it is through Christ that God so communicates Himself to man. The total impression of the apostolic writings is that Christ Himself is the Good, for in Him and through Him alone man has God as Love.
We must note, however, that the chief good is presented to us in three distinctive phrases in the different types of teaching in the NT. In the Synoptics, on the lips of Jesus Himself, it is ‘the kingdom of God’ (Matthew 6:33); in the Fourth Gospel it is ‘eternal life’ (John 20:30-31), although we also find the second representation in Matthew 19:16, Mark 10:17, Luke 18:18, and the first in John 3:5; in the Pauline Epistles it is ‘the righteousness of God’ or ‘of faith’ (Philippians 3:9), or, more generally, salvation (Romans 1:18; Romans 1:17).
The idea of the good combines character and condition; it includes Tightness and happiness, holiness and blessedness, or, as the Shorter Catechism puts it: ‘man’s chief end is to glorify God and to enjoy Him for ever.’ Man, by claiming God’s goodness, enjoying and praising it, and by showing a like goodness, glorifies God: that is, sets forth the honour, worth, beauty, and majesty of God’s moral perfection (Romans 15:6; Romans 15:9, 1 Corinthians 6:20, 2 Corinthians 9:13; cf. Colossians 3:17, 1 Peter 4:10-11). As God is grace, God’s claim on man is for faith: and this is his supreme duty (Hebrews 11:8). Thus the two aspects of the good pass into one another: man fulfils his obligation to God by making fully his own the salvation God offers in Christ. We need not then further pursue the idea of the good as duty, but may confine ourselves to it as boon.
(1) For Plato and Aristotle the good necessarily included both well-being (εὐδαιμονία) and also well-doing; a man must have health, wealth, beauty, and intellect as well as the virtues to attain fully the good. Here the first great distinction of the Christian view emerges. A man’s good is independent of his outward circumstances. As Jesus taught His disciples not to be anxious about food or raiment, but to leave all to the care and bounty of the Heavenly Father, who would add all these things to those who first sought His Kingdom and righteousness (Matthew 6:19-34), so St. Paul assures Christian believers that even the very worst circumstances imaginable cannot really injure them, for ‘all things work together for good to them that love God’ (Romans 8:28). The declaration has some affinity with Stoic thought; but the difference lies in this, that for Stoic self-sufficiency there is substituted the possession of the love of God in Christ as the satisfying portion of the soul (Romans 8:39). While there is this independence of outward circumstances, there is no cynic-like contempt for bodily needs, and the labour that meets these (1 Thessalonians 4:11, 2 Thessalonians 3:10, Romans 12:11; Romans 12:17). Private property even may become part of the Christian’s good, as affording the opportunity for the generosity which is so highly recommended as a Christian grace (Romans 12:8; Romans 12:13; 2 Corinthians 8:1-15).
(2) A second feature of the Christian view that distinguishes it from the Greek is that the good is not the result of fortune or the reward of merit, but the gift of Gods grace (Romans 5:21; Romans 6:23). It does include a duty to be done, but it is primarily a boon to be claimed. Hence the pre-eminence of faith as the primary, if not the supreme, grace of the Christian life. For human self-sufficiency there is substituted dependence upon God (2 Corinthians 2:16; Galatians 4:21-315; 2 Corinthians 12:9).
(3) A third characteristic is the emphasis on sin in the Christian view as the evil from which there must be escape. The good includes deliverance from sin in the two-fold sense, corresponding to the two-fold reference of sin in relation to God, and in relation to a man’s own nature. There is forgiveness of sin, reconciliation with God, the peace of God (Mark 14:7,; Romans 5:10; Romans 1:7; Romans 2:10, etc.); a man is set in right relation with God, so that God’s approval and not His displeasure rests upon him, and he does not distrust, or feel estranged from, God, but is at borne with God as a child with a father. There is also the breaking of the power of sin, and the banishment of the love of sin, by a new motive and a new strength (Romans 6:1-11; Romans 7:25, 2 Corinthians 5:14, Philippians 4:13). There is a present conquest of evil, and victory over the world. This is a present good claimed more or less, according to the measure of faith; but as Christians are not merely owners of the present but also heirs of the future good (Romans 8:17; Titus 3:7, 1 Peter 1:4; cf. Hebrews 11:9), hope as well as faith is necessary to claim the full salvation (Romans 8:24, 1 Thessalonians 5:8, 1 Peter 1:3).
(4) Into the contents of the Christian hope, the details of the apostolic Eschatology (q.v. [1] ), it is beyond the scope of this article to enter; but one feature, because of its distinction from, or even opposition to, the Greek view, may here he mentioned. The Greek thinker, if he did hope for a future life, looked for the release of the soul from its imprisonment in the body-for a disembodied immortality; but the Christian good includes not merely the survival of the soul in death, but resurrection-the restoration of the entire personality (Romans 8:23, 2 Corinthians 5:1-4, Philippians 3:21). This does not involve the absurdity of a material identity of the body buried and the body raised, for St. Paul expressly distinguishes the one from the other as the natural and the spiritual (1 Corinthians 15:42-44), but only the conviction that the future life will be a completely human one.
(5) As we may surely reckon as an dement in the Christian good the fellowship of believers, the membership of the body of Christ (1 Corinthians 12:12-31, Ephesians 1:23), the κοινωνία of the Spirit (2 Corinthians 13:14 : the common life of the Church in the Spirit), so the Christian life is not individual but universal; it is the subjection of all things to Christ, the destruction of all evil, the cessation of all pain and grief, the victory of the saints, and God all and in all. No such wider hope inspired the Greek thinkers. It is true that the expectation of an immediate return of Christ in power and glory precludes our interpreting this universal good as a historical evolution of mankind in manners, morals, laws, institutions, and pieties to so glorious and blessed a consummation, and we are left uncertain as to the mode in which the process is to be conceived. But the hope is a fact of apostolic life.
(6) There is one feature in the Christian good peculiar to St. Paul. As a Pharisee he had felt the burden and the bondage of the Law, and groaned under its judgment, but he had discovered its impotence, and so for him the Christian good included the end of the Law (1618400046_90; Galatians 5:1), for Christian morality is not legal-the observance of the letter-but spiritual-the expression of the new life found in Christ (2 Corinthians 3:1-11). It may be doubted, however, whether even all believers in the Apostolic Age were morally mature enough to be released from all outward restraints, and to be left only to inward constraint; and St. Paul’s counsels and commands even in his letters show that this end of the Law was ideal rather than actual. It is certain that the Christian Church in the course of its history generally has been legal rather than spiritual in its morality, and so this part of the Christian good has been unrealized.
(7) In the apostolic view of the Christian good there are two features which may he regarded as of temporary and local rather than of permanent and universal significance for Christian faith: (a) the expectation of the speedy Second Advent of Christ in power and glory to usher in the Last Things, which faded out of the Christian consciousness, with from time to time futile attempts to revive it, as the course of human history contradicted it; and (b) the belief which became more prominent in subsequent centuries than it was in the Apostolic Age, that the evil to be overcome and destroyed was embodied in personal evil principles and powers, over whom Christ gained the victory, and from whom He effected deliverance for the believer (Romans 8:38-39, 1 Corinthians 15:24, Ephesians 1:21, Colossians 2:15). For the details on both these subjects the relevant articles must be consulted, as all that is here necessary is merely the mention of them for the completeness of the treatment of the present topic.
Such is the Christian good; is it regarded as destined to be universal? Does the NT otter us a theodicy? It has been already indicated that the Christian hope does include the victory of Christ over all His foes, and the subjection of all things to Him, and at last of Himself to God (1 Corinthians 15:24-28); but these confident predictions do not clearly or fully answer the question whether all men will at last be saved-that is, become sharers of the good. While there are a few passages pointing towards universal restoration, there are others indicating eternal punishment, and some even on which has been based a theory of conditional immortality. This problem seems insoluble even with the data not only of the Scriptures, but also of human experience; and accordingly, whatever Christian wishes and hopes may be, we cannot affirm that the Christian good presents the final destiny of the race in cloudless sunshine without any shadow; and thus the believer must walk not by sight, but by faith, in the belief that whatever the Heavenly Father does is wisest, kindest, best. As has been shown in the article Evil, the Christian attitude is neither optimism nor pessimism, but meliorism-the belief that the world not only needs redemption, but is being redeemed in Christ.

Being when considered as having all that belongs to it, its perfection and therefore desirable; being, with its existence, its powers or activities, its acquired qualities. God, as possessing His existence, and powers in perfection, is therefore the greatest, highest, or supreme Good.
1910 New Catholic Dictionary - Good, Moral
Constitutes the natural end and perfection (in the supernatural order, the supernatural end) of the highest vital appetite of man's rational nature. God, the source of all created being and goodness, is also the last end of man, the Supreme Good "Who satisfieth thy desire" (Psalms 103). Imperfect goods of particular appetites are really good only when. ordained to the attainment of man's perfection or last end. These are generally classified as: (a) external goods, (b) goods of body, and (c) goods of soul. While the goodness or badness of many acts is determined by positive law, yet ultimately, the distinction between good and evil is a natural one, right rational nature constituting the proximate norm of morality and the Divine Nature or Reason the ultimate norm. An act is morally good when directed by reason to man's ultimate end, i.e.,when in conformity with right rational nature; otherwise it is evil. Some objects are naturally suitable, others unsuitable, to human nature. Hence there exists a distinction between moral good and evil, which has its origin in the nature of things; acts such as blasphemy, idolatry, lying, etc., being intrinsically evil, others such as the worship of God, pursuit of truth, etc., being by their very nature good. Although some actions, such as walking, etc., considered in the abstract, may be termed indifferent, yet every concrete human act is either morally good or bad to the extent that it conforms to the moral law, or leads towards or away from man's final end. This quality of moral goodness, which may be increased or diminished, is dependent on three factors: (a) the object of the act itself, (b) the purpose or end of the agent, and (c) the circumstances of the act. To be morally good all three elements of the act must be in conformity with the standards of morality, while if one of these determinants be evil the act itself will be morally bad.
1910 New Catholic Dictionary - Good Friday
Friday in Holy Week, anniversary of the death of Christ, on which the Passion and Crucifixion of Christ are commemorated; a day of fasting and penance from the earliest ages of the Church. Black vestments are worn by the priest, and until the Mass the altar is covered July by a single linen cloth and there are no lights. The morning services are in three parts: a Prophecy; Lesson from the Scriptures, the reading of the Passion and prayers for all mankind, the unveiling and adoration of the Cross, accompanied by the chanting of the Improperia; and the Mass of the Presanctified, before which the Host, already consecrated on Holy Thursday, is taken in solemn procession from the Altar of Repose to the main altar. It is not a Mass properly speaking, as there is no consecration, but the Host is incensed, elevated before the people, and consumed by the priest. Holy Communion is given to the faithful only in case of sickness. It is customary to have services from twelve noon until three in commemoration of the Three Hours Agony of Christ, and the office of Tenebrae is sung in the evening.

1910 New Catholic Dictionary - Good Samaritan, Parable of the
The occasion of the parable (Luke 10) was a question of a doctor of the law concerning eternal life, asked with the intention of embarrassing Our Lord. Christ refers the man to the Law and invites him to answer himself; this the questioner does by reciting the commandment of the love of God, which was part of the great daily prayer, and adding to it the precept of the love of the neighbor, as was done by Our Lord himself in His teaching. When Our Lord approves his answer, the doctor wishes to justify himself for putting a question which he was so well able to answer, by asking: And who is my neighbor? Since a more or less abstract definition could give occasion to distinctions and discussions, Jesus answered by giving a concrete illustration in the parable of the Good Samaritan. A man going down from Jerusalem to Jericho is attacked by a band of robbers who despoil him and beat him. A priest approaches, who might be expected to give good example and obey the Law's precept of charity towards the neighbor, especially as the victim is apparently a fellow countryman, but he passes by. So also a Levite. Next comes a Samaritan, chosen by Our Lord to give greater force to the lesson; for in his case, racial and religious bitterness would make the practise of charity more difficult (John 4). At once moved by compassion, he attends to the needs of the unfortunate, then conveys him to an inn, and pays in advance for the care for the man a sum equivalent to two days wages, promising to make good on his return any further expense incurred by the innkeeper. The story leads up quite naturally to the question with which Our Lord concludes the narrative: "Which of these three, in thy opinion, was neighbor to him that fell among the robbers?" The only possible answer to this query is given by the doctor of the law, who thus learns that a neighbor is anyone who needs any manner of assistance or help.

Whyte's Dictionary of Bible Characters - the Man Which Sowed Good Seed in His Field But His Enemy Came And Sowed Tares Among the Wheat
THE Son of Man lived in obscurity in Nazareth till He began to be about thirty years of age, growing in wisdom every day, and every day saving to Himself-
-What if EarthBe but the shadow of Heaven, and things thereinEach to other like more than on Earth is thought?And one day in His solitary and meditating walks He came on a field in which blades of tares were springing up among the blades of the wheat all over the field. When, meeting the husbandman, He said to him, "From whence hath thy field these tares?" "An enemy hath done it," said the heart-broken husbandman. "While men slept, mine enemy came and sowed tares among the wheat, and went his way." It was a most diabolical act. Diabolical malice, and dastardly cowardice, taken together, could have done no more. That enemy envied with all his wicked heart the husbandman's well-ploughed, well-weeded, well-sowed, and well-harvested, field, till he said within himself, Surely the darkness shall cover me. And when the night fell he filled his seed-basket, and went out under cover of night and sowed the whole field over with his diabolical seed. And when our Lord looked on the wheat-field all destroyed with tares, He took that field, and that husbandman's faith and patience with his field, and put them both into this immortal sermon of His. And here are we tonight learning many much-needed lessons among our tare-sowed fields also: learning the very same faith and patience that so impressed and pleased our Lord in this sorely-tried husbandman. And at the end of the world, when he is told about us, as we have been told about him, that husbandman will say, It was well worth a thousand fields of wheat to be the means of teaching a little patience and a little long-suffering even to one over-anxious and impatient heart. For, what that husbandman knew not about his field when he bore himself so wisely beside it, he will know when the harvest is the end of the world, and when the reapers are the angels.
Then Jesus sent the multitude away, and went into the house; and His disciples came unto Him, saying, Declare unto us the parable of the tares of the field. And He gave them an interpretation of His parable, which was to be the authoritative and the all-comprehending interpretation from that time to the end of the world. At the same time, and in and under that interpretation of His, there are occasional, and provisional, and contemporaneous, interpretations and applications of this parable, that are to be made by each reader of this parable, according to his own circumstances and experiences. I will not take up your time, therefore, with the Donatist controversy in the days of Augustine; nor with the great struggles for toleration and liberty of thought recorded for all time in the Areopagitica, and in such like noble arguments. Only, there will no doubt yet emerge and arise new Donatist debates, and new demands for toleration of opinion, even of erroneous opinion, and with that, new calls for the utmost caution, and faith, and patience, especially in church censures, and in church discipline. Occasions will arise, and may be at the door, when we must be prepared, both by knowledge and by temper, to play our part in them like this husbandman in his field. Occasions and opportunities when the discretion, and the patience, and the long-faith of this wise-hearted husbandman, will be memorable and will be set before us for our imitation and our repetition.
Occasions have often arisen in the past, and they will often arise in the future, when a great alarm will be taken at the new discoveries, the new opinions, and the new utterances, of men who are under our jurisdiction, as the tares were under the jurisdiction of the servants in the parable. Now, for what other purpose, do you think, was this parable spoken to us by our Master, but to impose upon us patience, and caution, and confidence in the truth, and to deliver us from all panic, and all precipitancy, and all sudden execution of our fears? This is a very wonderful parable. No parable of them all is more so. Very wonderful. Very startling, indeed. Very arresting to us. For, even when the wheat-field was all covered with real, and not doubtful, tares, the wise husbandman still held in the hands of his indignant and devoted servants. Even when, demonstrably, and admittedly, and scandalously, and diabolically, an enemy had done it,-No! said this master of himself, as well as of his servants,-No! Have patience. Let the tares alone. Lest while you gather up the tares, you root up also the wheat with them. Let both grow together till the harvest. And then I will give the reapers their instructions myself.
My friends, if any one but our Lord had said that, or anything like that, in the presence of any actual instances of real or supposed tares, what would we have said to him, and said about him? I will not, for reverence sake, repeat what we would have said. But if our Divine Lord actually uttered these great and wonderful words, full of such calmness, and such patience, and such toleration, and such endurance; such endurance even of evil,-shall we not take His wonderful words to heart, and humbly and believingly apply them, where it is at all possible; even erring, if err we must, on the safe side; and leave it to Him, when we at all can, to give His own orders about His own field at the end of the world? And, if we leave it to Him, it will be a sight on that day to see how He will vindicate our patience and His own parable.
Look back for a moment at what He Himself here calls some of the "scandals" in His Kingdom, and you will be fortified in your toleration of many things of that kind in time to come. Everybody has heard of the scandal of Galileo, to the shame of the Church of his day. And we are not without our own scandals in our own day. The highest dignitary now in the Church of England was, not very long ago, all but rooted up, as all but tares, both he and his beautiful writings. Whereas now he is where he is by universal acclamation. In Fitzjames Stephen's brilliant four-days' speech before the Court of Arches, that learned and eloquent counsel said,-"My Lord, such differences have always existed in the Church. I might quote in favour of the accused party, some of the highest names in the Church of England. Hooker was charged, in his day, with subverting the authority of Scripture. Cudworth was called an atheist. Tillotson's life was embittered by persecution. Bishop Burnet, whose work afterwards became a theological text-book, was actually twice censured by the Lower House of Convocation.… My Lord, the one party viewing history, and criticism, and science, accept these results with gladness, and with candour, and the other party tremble before them. The one party would say with Hooker that to detract from the dignity of these things is to do injury even to God Himself, who being that Light which no man can approach to, has sent us these lesser lights as sparkles, resembling, so far, the bright fountain from which they spring." I will not quote what Stephen said about the other party. But he went on to say, "That, my Lord, is the real scope, tendency, and design of this prosecution, and that, as I said before, is its explanation, but not its justification."
And a greater than Fitzjames Stephen, the Golden-mouth of the English Church himself, says in his Discourse of the Liberty of Prophesying-"Let all errors be as much and as zealously suppressed as may be: but let it be done by such means as are proper instruments for their suppression; by preaching and disputation, by charity and sweetness, by holiness of life, by assiduity of exhortation, by the Word of God and prayer. For these ways are the most natural, the most prudent, the most peaceable, and the most effectual, instrument for the suppression of error. Only, let not men be hasty in calling every disliked opinion by the name of heresy. And if men will say that in saying this I persuade to indifferency, there is no help for me; I must bear it as I can. And I am not without remedy, for my patience will help me, and I will take my course."
And on the same subject a greater than either Stephen or Taylor has said: has sung-Let not the people be too swift to judge,As one that reckons on the blades in field,Or ere the corn be ripe. For I have seenThe thorn frown rudely all the winter long,And after bear the rose upon its top:And bark, that all the way across the seaRan straight and speedy, perish at the last,E'en in the haven's mouth.But all that will only the more provoke some of you to retort on me and to demand,-Do you really mean to say, that so and so are to be tolerated, and tolerated where they are? Now, I will not answer that which you put so passionately; for I am not debating with you, but am teaching to the teachable among you, a little of what I have been taught myself. And, moreover, what I have acted on more than once as I had opportunity, and have proved it to be true and trustworthy teaching, and have never repented it. And if, instead of debating about it, you also will receive it, and will act upon it, you also will live to prove it true. Now, with all this, I have not gone out of my way one inch tonight to seek out this wonderful parable, and its so timeous interpretation. Not one inch. For it met me in the very middle of my way to you. And, all I could examine it, and excogitate it, and go round about it, and look at it in every light, and indeed try to escape it-I could make nothing else out of it than what I have now said. But the day will declare both the eternal truth, and the present truth, about this parable of the wheat and the tares. On that day, He who preached this parable will winnow out, and will burn up all false interpretations of it, and mine among the rest. Only, may you and I be judged more tenderly and forgivingly by Him on that day than we have many a time judged other erring men!
The whole field of letters, also, is more or less like this husbandman's tare-tangled field. You can get at the pure truth in print scarcely in anything. You can with difficulty get a book of the past, and much less a magazine, or a journal, or a newspaper of the passing day, that is not all sown over with the author's own seed-basket; all sown over, now with partiality, and now with antipathy. That field in Galilee was a study in malice to our Lord: and there are fields all around us today of the same sickening spectacle. You are a public writer; and so many are the collisions of interests, and ambitions, and pursuits, and competitions; and such is the pure malice, sometimes, of your own tare-filled heart, that we cannot get from you the naked and real truth about that cause or that man. You simply will not let us get at the real, unadulterated, unvarnished, untampered-with, truth. And, besides, such are the resources and appliances of civilisation in our day, that you can sow your evil seed under cover of anonymity, and your best friend will never know whose hand it was that stabbed him in the dark. You are reviewing a book by tongue or by pen. The author is not liked by you, or by your party, or by your employer; or, you are an author yourself, and the writer of the book before you has run away with your popularity and your profits. You would need to be a saint to review his new book aright. You would need to be an angel to say in your paper about him and about his book, what you would like him to say in his paper about you and about your book. And, indeed, considering what this world is, and what the human heart is, there is far more of such angelic saintliness abroad in it than you would expect to see, unless you were actually on the out-look for it. But, fair writing, and true writing, and loving writing, or no, we have no choice. We must act like this wise husbandman; we must take our history, and our biography, and our politics, and our art, and our law, and our criticism, and our morning and evening and weekly newspapers, as they are-tares and all. Lest if we forbid the tares entering our house we shut out both truth and love with them. Let them grow together until the harvest; and, meantime, make them all so many means of this and that grace to you. In one of his noblest papers Dr. Newman vindicates the study of the great classics-Greek, Latin, and English-in spite of the basketfuls of impurity that are sown so broadcast in some of them. And the old scholar and saint argues that in the interest of the very purity of mind and heart that we fear sometimes are so early poisoned in those shining fields. And now, before leaving this point, I will add this-I am not an author, nor a journalist, but a preacher, and I will therefore add this-that he is a happy preacher who has lived through many times and seasons of temptation, and has never sown some of the tares of his own temper, and of his own partial mind, in his preaching, and even in his prayers. And I, for one, am not that happy preacher. Thomas Boston used to say, that of all men who needed the imputation of Christ's all-round righteousness, preachers and pastors were those men.
And then to come still closer to ourselves than even that. Such is the versatility, and the spirituality, and the inwardness, of our Lord's words in this wonderful parable, that they apply with the very greatest support and comfort to the heart of every sinful man also under his own all-searching sanctification. The heart of a great sinner, under a great sanctification, is the field of all fields. All other fields are but parables to him of his own field. And in nothing more so than in Satan and his satanic seed-basket. And worst of all, and saddest of all, that satanic seed is here almost part and parcel of the very field itself. For, from the beginning, that poisonous seed was, somehow, insinuated, and was already buried deep in the very original ground and soil of the soul; and so insinuated, and so rooted, that with the best husbandry it is never got out of the soil of the soul in this world. It is like those poisonous weeds in his best fields that so vex the husbandman's heart. Let him plough and harrow, and plough and harrow again; let him change his seed, let him rotate his crops; with all he can do, there is the accursed thing always coming up, choking the wheat, drinking up the rain and the sunshine from the wheat, and mocking all that the husbandman and his servants can do; mortifying and indeed breaking his heart. But here also,-and startling and staggering to read it,-our Lord here again advises patience. Why he does not cleanse the honest and good ground with one word of His mouth, He knows Himself. But that He does not so speak the word, and so cleanse the ground, all His best saints have learned to their bitter suffering, and their heart-breaking cost. And among all the counsels and comforts He speaks to our tare-tortured hearts, this wonderful, this even staggering, counsel is heard in and over them all. 'Be patient with thine own sanctification, as with some other things, till I come. Behold, the husbandman waiteth for the precious fruit of the earth. Be ye also patient; for the coming of the Lord draweth nigh. And then the Son of Man shall send forth His angels, and they shall gather out of His kingdom all things that offend. And then shall the righteous shine forth as the sun in the kingdom of their Father. Who hath ears to hear, let him hear.'

Vine's Expository Dictionary of OT Words - Good
A. Adjective.
Ṭôb (טוֹב, Strong's #2896), “good; favorable; festive; pleasing,;pleasant; well; better; right; best.” This word appears in Akkadian, Aramaic, Arabic, Ugaritic, and Old South Arabic. Occurring in all periods of biblical Hebrew, it appears about 559 times.
This adjective denotes “good” in every sense of that word. For example, ṭôb is used in the sense “pleasant” or “delightful”: “And he saw that [1] was good, and the land that it was pleasant; and bowed his shoulder to bear [2] …” (Gen. 49:15). An extension of this sense appears in Gen. 40:16, where ṭôb means “favorable” or “in one’s favor”: “When the chief baker saw that the interpretation was good, he said unto Joseph.…” In 1 Sam. 25:8, the emphasis is on the nuance “delightful” or “festal”: “… Let the young men find favor in thine eyes: for we come in a good day.…” God is described as One who is “good,” or One who gives “delight” and “pleasure”: “But it is good for me to draw near to God: I have put my trust in the Lord God, that I may declare all thy works” (Ps. 73:28).
In 1 Sam. 29:6, this word describes human activities: “… As the Lord liveth, thou hast been upright, and thy going out and thy coming in with me in the [3] is good in my sight.…” Ṭôb can be applied to scenic beauty, as in 2 Kings 2:19: “Behold, I pray thee, the situation of this city is pleasant, as my lord seeth: but the water is naught, and the ground barren.” Second Chron. 12:12 employs a related nuance when it applies the word to the conditions in Judah under King Rehoboam, after he humbled himself before God: “… Things went well.”
Ṭôb often qualifies a common object or activity. When the word is used in this sense, no ethical overtones are intended. In 1 Sam. 19:4, ṭôb describes the way Jonathan spoke about David: “And Jonathan spake good of David unto Saul his father, and said unto him, Let not the king sin against his servant, against David; because he hath not sinned against thee, and because his works have been [4] very good.” First Samuel 25:15 characterizes a people as “friendly” or “useful”: “But the men were very good unto us, and we were not hurt, neither missed we any thing, as long as we were conversant with them, when we were in the fields.…” Often this word bears an even stronger emphasis, as in 1 Kings 12:7, where the “good word” is not only friendly but eases the life of one’s servants. God’s “good word” promises life in the face of oppression and uncertainty: “… There hath not failed one word of all his good promise, which he promised by the hand of Moses his servant” (1 Kings 8:56). Ṭôb often characterizes a statement as an important assertion for salvation and prosperity (real or imagined): “Is not this the word that we did tell thee in Egypt, saying, Let us alone, that we may serve the Egyptians? For it had been better for us to serve the Egyptians, than that we should die in the wilderness” (Exod. 14:12). God judged that man’s circumstance without a wife or helpmeet was not “good” (Gen. 2:18). Elsewhere ṭôb is applied to an evaluation of one’s well-being or of the wellbeing of a situation or thing: “And God saw the light, that it was good: and God divided the light from the darkness” (Gen. 1:4—the first occurrence).
Ṭôb is used to describe land and agriculture: “And I am come down to deliver them out of the [5] of the Egyptians, and to bring them up out of that land unto a good [6] land and a large, unto a land flowing with milk and honey …” (Exod. 3:8). This suggests its potential of supporting life (Deut. 11:17). Thus the expression “the good land” is a comment about not only its existing, but its potential, productivity. In such contexts the land is viewed as one aspect of the blessings of salvation promised by God; thus the Lord did not permit Moses to cross the Jordan and enter the land which His people were to inherit (Deut. 3:26-28). This aspect of the “good land” includes overtones of its fruitfulness and “pleasantness”: “And he will take your fields, and your vineyards, and your oliveyards, even the best of them …” (1 Sam. 8:14). Ṭôb is used to describe men or women. Sometimes it is used of an “elite corps” of people: “And he will take your menservants, and your maidservants, and your goodliest young men, and your asses …” (1 Sam. 8:16). In 2 Sam. 18:27, Ahimaaz is described as a “good” man because he comes with “good” military news. In 1 Sam. 15:28, the word has ethical overtones: “The Lord hath rent the kingdom of Israel from thee this day, and hath given it to a neighbor of thine, that is better than thou” (cf. 1 Kings 2:32). In other passages, ṭôb describes physical appearance: “And the damsel was very fair to look upon [7] …” (Gen. 24:16). When applied to one’s heart, the word describes “well-being” rather than ethical status. Therefore, the parallel idea is “joyous and happy”: “… And they … went unto their tents joyful and glad of heart for all the goodness that the Lord had done for David …” (1 Kings 8:66). Dying “at a good old age” describes “advanced age,” rather than moral accomplishment, but a time when due to divine blessings one is fulfilled and satisfied (Gen. 15:15).
Ṭôb indicates that a given word, act, or circumstance contributes positively to the condition of a situation. Often this judgment does not mean that the thing is actually “good,” only that it is so evaluated: “When the chief baker saw that the interpretation was good …” (Gen. 40:16). The judgment may be ethical: “It is not good that ye do: ought ye not to walk in the fear of our God because of the reproach of the heathen …?” (Neh. 5:9). The word may also represent “agreement” or “concurrence”: “The thing proceedeth from the Lord: we cannot speak unto thee bad or good” (Gen. 24:50).
Ṭôb is often used in conjunction with the Hebrew word ra’ah (“bad; evil”). Sometimes this is intended as a contrast; but in other contexts it may mean “everything from good [3] to bad [9],” which is a way of saying “nothing at all.” In other contexts, more contrast is suggested: “And what the land is that they dwell in, whether it be good or bad …” (Num. 13:19). In this case, the evaluation would determine whether the land could support the people well or not.
In Gen. 2:9, ṭôb contrasted with evil has moral overtones: “… the tree of life also in the midst of the garden, and the tree of knowledge of good and evil.” The fruit of this tree, if consumed, would reveal the difference between moral evil and moral “good.” This reference also suggests that, by eating this fruit, man attempted to determine for himself what “good” and evil are.
B. Verbs.
Yâṭab (יָטַב, Strong's #3190), “to go well, be pleasing, be delighted, be happy.” This verb appears 117 times in the Old Testament. The meaning of the word, as expressed in Neh. 2:6, is “pleased.”
Ṭôb (טוֹב, Strong's #2895), “to be joyful, glad, pleasant, lovely, appropriate, becoming, good, precious.” Ṭôb has cognates in Akkadian and Arabic. The verb occurs 21 times in the Old Testament. Job 13:9 is one example of the word’s meaning, “to be good”: “Is it good that he should search you out?”
Vine's Expository Dictionary of OT Words - Do Good
A. Verb.
Yâṭab (יָטַב, 3190), “to be good, do well, be glad, please, do good.” This word is found in various Semitic languages, and is very common in Hebrew, both ancient and modern. Yâṭab is found approximately 100 times in biblical Hebrew. This verbal form is found first in the story of Cain and Abel, where it is used twice in one verse: “If you do well, will not your countenance be lifted up? And if you do not do well, sin is crouching at the door” (Gen. 4:7, NASB). Among other nuances of the verb are “to deal well” (Exod. 1:20), “to play [1] well” (1 Sam. 16:17), “to adornmake beautiful” (2 Kings 9:30), and “to inquire diligently” (Deut. 17:4).
B. Adjective.
Ṭôb (טוֹב, Strong's #2896), “good.” This word occurs some 500 times in the Bible. Its first occurrence is in Gen. 1:4: “God saw that the light was good” (NASB). God appraises each day’s creative work as being “good,” climaxing it with a “very good” on the sixth day (Gen. 1:31).
As a positive term, the word is used to express many nuances of that which is “good,” such as a “glad” heart (Judg. 18:20), “pleasing” words (Gen. 34:18), and a “cheerful” face (Prov. 15:13).

1910 New Catholic Dictionary - Religious of Our Lady of Charity of the Good Sheph
A branch of the order of Our Lady of Charity of the Refuge, founded by Saint John Eudes at Caen, France, 1641; the government of the order was centralized by Saint Mary Euphrasia Pelletier, who established a mother-house at Angers in 1835 with the approval of the Holy See and under the title of the present Institute. The Good Shepherd is a cloistered order and follows the Rule of Saint Augustine. The constitution, borrowed in great part from those given by Saint Francis de Sales to the Visitation Nuns, are modified to suit the nature of the work, which is to provide shelter for girls and women of dissolute habits who wish to do penance and lead Christian lives; these are divided into the three distinct classes of "penitents," "Magdalens," and "preservates." To the three ordinary vows the sisters add a fourth, i.e.,to work for the conversion and instruction of penitents. The order has convents, industrial homes and orphan asylums throughout the world. The mother-house is still at Angers, France.
1910 New Catholic Dictionary - Scapular of the Mother of Good Counsel
Approved by Pope Leo XIII in December 1893. Its use is promoted by the Augustinian Fathers; the faculty of blessing and investing with the scapular belongs primarily to the Augustinian monks, but the General of the Augustinians communicates this privilege to other priests. It is white wool, with one part bearing a picture of the Mother of Good Counsel, and the other, the papal crown and keys with the inscription, "Son, follow her counsel. Leo III".
New Catholic Dictionary and Catholic Encyclopedia
1910 New Catholic Dictionary - Society of Our Lady of Good Counsel
Composed principally of London solicitors and barristers. Its purpose is to render free legal help and advice to the poor. It is placed under the patronage of Saint Thomas More, lord high chancellor of England. Until this society was constituted, April 26, 1926, there was no means in Great Britain whereby a poor person could obtain legal assistance, excepting only advice, in regard to police court and county court cases, and it is in these courts that most cases of immediate personal concern to the poor are tried. A "poor person" according to the rules of this society is one not possessed of £50 (excluding wearing apparel, tools of trade, and the subject matter of the proceedings) and whose total income does not exceed £2 per week. Although essentially a Catholic society, the question of religion does not arise so far as applicants for help are concerned; assistance is freely given to all regardless of creed, social status, or character; it is only necessary that clients be poor and have right and justice on their side. Each solicitor and bartister on joining the society agrees to take certain classes of cases; he can thus choose the division of law with which he is most familiar. The general welfare of the society is the concern of a council which is composed of ecclesiastics, lawyers, and laymen, the Cardinal-Archbishop of Westminster being president. The activities of the society are directed by an executive of lawyers of both legal branches, the chairman being Sir Reginald Mitchell Banks. Attached to the society is a Ladies Committee which undertakes to collect funds for such necessary expenses as office rent, court fees, etc., and to make known to the poor in need of legal aid the help they may obtain from the society; a special sub-committee acts as a link between the society and foreign embassies, legations, and consulates, who may have poor of their nationalities seeking aid. While it is no part of the society's work to foster litigation, its aim being rather to induce just and equitable settlement of disputes, it does in cases of necessity aid its clients as far as the Court of Criminal Appeal, in which tribunal, as elsewhere, it has achieved notable successes.
1910 New Catholic Dictionary - Thief, Good
Traditionally known as Dismas, one of the thieves crucified with Christ, who rebuked his companion for demanding that Christ should save them, prayed instead a share in His Kingdom, and received the assurance: "This day thou shalt be with Me in paradise." A portion of the cross on which he died is preserved in the Chapel of Relics, Santa Croce in Gerusalemme, Rome. He is patron of persons condemned to death.
Bridgeway Bible Dictionary - Good Works
Salvation from sin and condemnation comes not by human good works but by divine grace, and people receive this salvation through faith (Ephesians 2:8-9; Titus 3:5-7). No good deeds that people do can remove their sin, cancel its penalty, or make them acceptable to God (Isaiah 64:6; Romans 3:20; Romans 8:7-8; Romans 9:31-32). God forgives sin and declares people righteous solely on the basis of what Christ has done on their behalf (Romans 3:23-26; 2 Corinthians 5:21; see JUSTIFICATION). Once they have been saved, however, God’s will is that they do good works. In fact, this is one purpose for which God saved them (Ephesians 2:10; Titus 2:14).
Christians will be equipped to carry out these good works as they learn more of the nature and purposes of God through the Scriptures (2 Timothy 3:16-17; 2 Peter 3:18). Such good works will be of benefit to themselves as well as to others, and will be the means of bringing praise to God (Matthew 5:16; Titus 2:7; Titus 3:8; 1 Peter 2:12). They are one of the proofs of genuine faith (James 2:18), and arise from love and gratitude to God because of his free salvation (1 Thessalonians 1:3; Hebrews 6:10).
Good works are no cause for pride. They are, after all, part of the Christian’s duty (Luke 17:10). Nevertheless, Christians must carry out their good works not in a hard or legalistic spirit, but in an attitude of genuine love for others and with a clear conscience. They should be concerned with bringing praise to God, not to themselves (Romans 13:8-10; 1 Corinthians 10:31; Hebrews 13:18).
In the day of judgment God will test the works, good or otherwise, of all Christians. Those they have done out of selfishness or pride will bring no lasting benefit; those they have done for God’s sake and according to his standards will bring an eternal reward (Matthew 6:1; 1 Corinthians 3:11-15; 2 Corinthians 5:10; Revelation 22:12; see JUDGMENT; REWARD).
The American Church Dictionary and Cycopedia - Good Friday
The Last Friday in Lent on which we commemorate theDeath of our Lord. It is called Good Friday from the blessed resultsof our Saviour's sufferings, for by the shedding of His own mostprecious Blood He obtained eternal Redemption for us. It is the mostsolemn and binding of all Fridays and should be observed as anabsolute Fast in token of our sorrow for sin, and in preparation forthe Easter Communion. All unnecessary work, all social engagementsand pleasures are especially to be avoided by all those who reverencetheir Lord, and remember of what Good Friday is the solemn memorial.It is a day of Church-going, and it will be found that the GoodFriday services are very impressive, solemn and soul-stirring.The Proper Psalms are the 22d, 40th and 54th in Morning Prayer, andthe 69th and 88th for Evening Prayer. Proper Lessons and threespecial Collects, together with the Epistle and Gospel all set forth,amid the solemnities of worship, the momentous story of the Saviour'sPassion and Death. In many places, it is usual to have in additionto the appointed services, the "THREE HOURS SERVICE" (which see),held from 12 M. to 3 P. M., in commemoration of our Lord's Agony onthe Cross, and consisting of special prayers and hymns with addressesor meditations. The Holy Communion is not celebrated on Good Friday,in accordance with the immemorial usage of the Church; only theintroductory portion of the service is used. The Altar is entirelystripped of its hangings and ornaments, except the cross, and issometimes covered with black hangings. The observance of Good Fridayis inwoven into the very texture of the Christian Religion, havingbeen kept from the very first age of Christianity with strictestfasting and humiliation. The mind of the Church seems always tohave been, "this day is not one of man's institution, but wasconsecrated by our Lord Jesus Christ when He made it the day of Hismost Holy Passion."

Good, Goodness - The main Old Testament words for Good/goodness come from the Hebrew word tob [ Genesis 6:2 ; 24:16 ; 26:7 ; 2 Samuel 11:2 ; Esther 1:11 ; 2:2-3,7 ) and a "good" man is handsome (1 Samuel 9:2 ). A land may be Good (Deuteronomy 1:25,35 ) and so may gold (2 Chronicles 3:5,8 ), soil (Luke 8:8 ), a tree (Matthew 7:17 ), wine (John 2:10 ), or all of creation (seven times in Genesis 1 ). ...
God's Goodness is a bedrock truth of Scripture. His Goodness is praised in the psalms (25:8; 34:8; 86:5; 100:5; 118:1; 136:1; 145:9). Jesus affirms the Father's Goodness when speaking to the rich young ruler (Matthew 19:17 ; Mark 10:18 ; Luke 18:19 ). In 1 Peter 2:3 Peter echoes the language of Psalm 34:8 : "Taste and see that the Lord is Good!"'...
Although we might discuss God's Goodness in some abstract philosophical sense, in Scripture his Goodness appears most clearly in his dealings with people. He is not only Good in general, but he is Good to us ( Psalm 23:6 ; 68:10 ; 73:1 ; 119:65 ; 145:9 ; Lamentations 3:25 ; Luke 6:35 ; Romans 2:4 ; 11:22 ; Ephesians 2:7 ; Titus 3:4 ). Human Goodness is modeled on divine Goodness (Matthew 5:48 ). For human beings Goodness involves right behavior, expresses itself in kindness and other praiseworthy qualities, includes avoiding evil, and springs from the inner person. ...
It is nearly impossible to think about Goodness in the abstract. In Scripture Goodness always involves particular ways of behaving. Because God is Good, he is Good to his people; when people are Good they behave decently toward each other, based on God's Goodness to them. Moses' invitation to Hobab expresses this emphasis: "Come with us and we will treat you well, for the Lord has promised Good things to Israel" (Numbers 10:29 ). The general biblical words for "good/ Goodness" include this idea of right behavior, although the idea is often expressed by means of a more specific term like "upright/uprightness" or "righteous/righteousness. "...
The Goodness God's people exhibit shows itself in various moral qualities, notably kindness; hesed [1], translated "goodness" or "kindness, " serves as one of the major synonyms of tob [2], "good, " in the Old Testament. In the New Testament many words describe the specific characteristics and behaviors of Good people, including "just/justice, " "righteous/ righteousness, " "holy/holiness, " "pure/ purity, " "gentle/gentleness, " and "kind/kindness. " If "goodness" is the general term, these other specific terms show what Goodness means in daily living. ...
Goodness involves not only right behavior but also avoiding its opposite, evil. The choice between Good and evil has lain before people since the garden of Eden when Adam and Eve ate fruit from the "tree of the knowledge of Good and evil" (Genesis 2:9 ). Since then God's curse has fallen on "those who call evil Good and Good evil, who put darkness for light and light for darkness, who put bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter" (Isaiah 5:20 ). A wise ruler like Solomon, or indeed anyone who wants to obey God, needs the wisdom to tell Good from evil (1 Kings 3:9 ; Hebrews 5:14 ). Those who serve God will "seek Good, not evil, hate evil, love Good" (Amos 5:14-15 ). ...
For the Christian or the faithful Israelite, Goodness has never been a matter of outward behavior alone; it comes from within. In the same way a Good person's Good behavior shows a Good heart (Matthew 12:33-35 ). ...
In the Old Testament God's Goodness to his people and their Goodness in response is based on the covenant between them. God's appeal to his people to return to the covenant relationship finds expression in a call to simple Goodness (Micah 6:6-8 ). In the New Testament Goodness is a fruit of the Spirit (Galatians 5:22 ), while moral excellence is one of the steps on the "ladder of virtue" (2 Peter 1:5 )

Ṭôb (טוֹב, Strong's #2896), “good; favorable; festive; pleasing,;pleasant; well; better; right; best. ...
This adjective denotes “good” in every sense of that word. For example, ṭôb is used in the sense “pleasant” or “delightful”: “And he saw that [1] was Good, and the land that it was pleasant; and bowed his shoulder to bear [2] …” ( Good, he said unto Joseph. 25:8, the emphasis is on the nuance “delightful” or “festal”: “… Let the young men find favor in thine eyes: for we come in a Good day. …” God is described as One who is “good,” or One who gives “delight” and “pleasure”: “But it is Good for me to draw near to God: I have put my trust in the Lord God, that I may declare all thy works” ( Good in my sight. 19:4, ṭôb describes the way Jonathan spoke about David: “And Jonathan spake Good of David unto Saul his father, and said unto him, Let not the king sin against his servant, against David; because he hath not sinned against thee, and because his works have been [4] very Good. ” First Samuel 25:15 characterizes a people as “friendly” or “useful”: “But the men were very Good unto us, and we were not hurt, neither missed we any thing, as long as we were conversant with them, when we were in the fields. …” Often this word bears an even stronger emphasis, as in 1 Kings 12:7, where the “good word” is not only friendly but eases the life of one’s servants. God’s “good word” promises life in the face of oppression and uncertainty: “… There hath not failed one word of all his Good promise, which he promised by the hand of Moses his servant” (1 Kings 8:56). God judged that man’s circumstance without a wife or helpmeet was not “good” ( Good: and God divided the light from the darkness” ( Good [6] land and a large, unto a land flowing with milk and honey …” ( Good land” is a comment about not only its existing, but its potential, productivity. This aspect of the “good land” includes overtones of its fruitfulness and “pleasantness”: “And he will take your fields, and your vineyards, and your oliveyards, even the best of them …” ( Goodliest young men, and your asses …” ( Goodness that the Lord had done for David …” (1 Kings 8:66). Dying “at a Good old age” describes “advanced age,” rather than moral accomplishment, but a time when due to divine blessings one is fulfilled and satisfied ( Good …” ( Good that ye do: ought ye not to walk in the fear of our God because of the reproach of the heathen …?” ( Good” ( Good [8] to bad [9],” which is a way of saying “nothing at all. ” In other contexts, more contrast is suggested: “And what the land is that they dwell in, whether it be Good or bad …” ( Good and evil. ” The fruit of this tree, if consumed, would reveal the difference between moral evil and moral “good. ” This reference also suggests that, by eating this fruit, man attempted to determine for himself what “good” and evil are. ”...

Desire - Is an eagerness to obtain or enjoy an object which we suppose to be Good. Watts, that arise without any express ideas of the Goodness or agreeableness of their object to the mind beforehand, such as hunger, thirst, &c. Those which arise from our perception or opinion of an object as Good or agreeable, are most properly called passions. If our desire to do or receive Good be not violent, it is called a simple inclination or propensity. When it rises high, it is termed longing: when our desires set our active powers at work to obtain the very same Good, or the same sort of Good, which another desires, it is called emulation. The objects of a Good man's desires are, that God may be glorified, his sins forgiven and subdued, his affections enlivened and placed on God as the supreme object of love, his afflictions sanctified, and his life devoted to the service of God, Proverbs 11:23

The biblical words translated ‘good’ contained a range of meanings, such as pleasant, beneficial, fitting, beautiful and honourable (Genesis 1:4; Deuteronomy 6:18; Job 2:10; Ephesians 5:9). The Goodness that the Bible teaches is the Goodness that exists perfectly in God (Psalms 100:5). This Goodness was demonstrated in the life and ministry of Jesus (Acts 10:38), and the Holy Spirit wants to reproduce it in the lives of Christians (Galatians 5:22). ...
All that God does is Good (Psalms 119:68; Psalms 136:1; Acts 14:17; 1 Timothy 4:4). ...
God desires the welfare of all, and therefore he wants people to do Good (Isaiah 1:17; Isaiah 5:20; Galatians 6:10). Though Good works will not earn them salvation (for salvation is the gift of God and is received by faith), once they have received salvation they have an obligation to produce Good works (Ephesians 2:8-10; Titus 2:14; see Good WORKS). ...
Likewise, although the law of God is Good (Psalms 119:39; Romans 7:12; Romans 7:16), obedience to the law will never produce a satisfactory standard of Goodness (Romans 7:18-19). But the believer can produce Goodness through the power of the indwelling Spirit (Galatians 5:22)

Moral Good - God, the source of all created being and Goodness, is also the last end of man, the Supreme Good "Who satisfieth thy desire" (Psalms 103). Imperfect Goods of particular appetites are really Good only when. These are generally classified as: (a) external Goods, (b) Goods of body, and (c) Goods of soul. While the Goodness or badness of many acts is determined by positive law, yet ultimately, the distinction between Good and evil is a natural one, right rational nature constituting the proximate norm of morality and the Divine Nature or Reason the ultimate norm. An act is morally Good when directed by reason to man's ultimate end, i. Hence there exists a distinction between moral Good and evil, which has its origin in the nature of things; acts such as blasphemy, idolatry, lying, etc. , being by their very nature Good. , considered in the abstract, may be termed indifferent, yet every concrete human act is either morally Good or bad to the extent that it conforms to the moral law, or leads towards or away from man's final end. This quality of moral Goodness, which may be increased or diminished, is dependent on three factors: (a) the object of the act itself, (b) the purpose or end of the agent, and (c) the circumstances of the act. To be morally Good all three elements of the act must be in conformity with the standards of morality, while if one of these determinants be evil the act itself will be morally bad
Works, Good - The old objection against the doctrine of salvation by grace, that it does away with the necessity of Good works, and lowers the sense of their importance (Romans 6 ), although it has been answered a thousand times, is still alleged by many. If the most moral of men are saved in the same way as the very chief of sinners, then Good works are of no moment. The gospel of salvation by grace shows that Good works are necessary. ...
Works are "good" only when, (1) they spring from the principle of love to God. Hence Good works only spring from a believing heart, can only be wrought by one reconciled to God (Ephesians 2:10 ; James 2:18:22 ). ...
Good works have the glory of God as their object; and (3) they have the revealed will of God as their only rule (Deuteronomy 12:32 ; Revelation 22:18,19 ). Good works are an expression of gratitude in the believer's heart (John 14:15,23 ; Galatians 5:6 ). ...
Good works of the most sincere believers are all imperfect, yet like their persons they are accepted through the mediation of Jesus Christ (Colossians 3:17 ), and so are rewarded; they have no merit intrinsically, but are rewarded wholly of grace
Good, Moral - God, the source of all created being and Goodness, is also the last end of man, the Supreme Good "Who satisfieth thy desire" (Psalms 103). Imperfect Goods of particular appetites are really Good only when. These are generally classified as: (a) external Goods, (b) Goods of body, and (c) Goods of soul.

Good - In contrast to the Greek view of “the Good” as an ideal, the biblical concept focuses on concrete experiences of what God has done and is doing in the lives of God's people. Scripture affirms that God is and does Good (1 Chronicles 16:34 ; Psalm 119:68 ). The Goodness of God is experienced in the Goodness of God's creative work (Genesis 1:31 ) and in God's saving acts (liberation of Israel from Egypt, Exodus 18:9 ; return of a remnant from captivity, Ezra 7:9 ; personal deliverance, Psalm 34:8 ; salvation, Philippians 1:6 ). God's Goodness is extended to God's name (Psalm 52:9 ), God's promises (Joshua 21:45 ), God's commands (Psalm 119:39 ; Romans 7:12 ), God's gifts (James 1:17 ), and God's providential shaping of events (Genesis 50:20 ; Romans 8:28 ). Though God alone is truly Good (Psalm 14:1 ,Psalms 14:1,14:3 ; Mark 10:18 ), Scripture repeatedly speaks of Good persons who seek to live their lives in accordance with God's will. Christians have been saved in order to do Good (Ephesians 2:10 ; Colossians 1:10 ) with the Holy Spirit's help

(Isaiah 52:7) And, indeed, the gospel is, without exception, the best news JEHOVAH ever proclaimed to man, or man ever heard.

Good Works - Salvation from sin and condemnation comes not by human Good works but by divine grace, and people receive this salvation through faith (Ephesians 2:8-9; Titus 3:5-7).

Good - ‘good’ (ἀγαθός, καλός) may be used of any quality, physical as well as moral, thing, or person that may be approved as useful, fit, admirable, right. Jesus Himself is the expression and activity of this Divine perfection, and so it is characteristic of Him to go about ‘doing Good’ (Acts 10:38), as He Himself indicates in His reply to the Baptist (Matthew 11:4-5); and this, too, He enjoin as the practice of His disciples (Luke 6:27; cf. Paul echoes the teaching of Jesus when he bids the Romans ‘overcome evil with Good’ (Romans 12:21), and assures them that such conduct will have its reward (Romans 2:10). Paul makes between ‘a righteous man ‘and ‘the Good man’ (Romans 5:7) deserves special attention. Just as God because He is righteous reckons righteous (Romans 3:26), so it is because God is Good in Himself that He is ever showing His Goodness to all men, especially in Christ and His Cross (Romans 5:8, Ephesians 4:32) and calling all men to be the imitators of His Goodness (1 Corinthians 13). ...
Although the following article is dealing with the Christian moral ideal as ‘goodness,’ this brief statement in introducing the subject of ‘the Good’ as man’s ‘chief end’ has been made for two reasons. (a) In the Christian view, God Himself is man’s chief Good, for in His fellowship alone is man’s perfection, glory, and blessedness, and it is God’s Goodness that man enjoys for ever; and (b) it is because of this Goodness-this self-giving of God’s perfection as love-that the chief Good is given to man. The total impression of the apostolic writings is that Christ Himself is the Good, for in Him and through Him alone man has God as Love. ...
We must note, however, that the chief Good is presented to us in three distinctive phrases in the different types of teaching in the NT. ...
The idea of the Good combines character and condition; it includes Tightness and happiness, holiness and blessedness, or, as the Shorter Catechism puts it: ‘man’s chief end is to glorify God and to enjoy Him for ever. ’ Man, by claiming God’s Goodness, enjoying and praising it, and by showing a like Goodness, glorifies God: that is, sets forth the honour, worth, beauty, and majesty of God’s moral perfection (Romans 15:6; Romans 15:9, 1 Corinthians 6:20, 2 Corinthians 9:13; cf. Thus the two aspects of the Good pass into one another: man fulfils his obligation to God by making fully his own the salvation God offers in Christ. We need not then further pursue the idea of the Good as duty, but may confine ourselves to it as boon. ...
(1) For Plato and Aristotle the Good necessarily included both well-being (εὐδαιμονία) and also well-doing; a man must have health, wealth, beauty, and intellect as well as the virtues to attain fully the Good. A man’s Good is independent of his outward circumstances. Paul assures Christian believers that even the very worst circumstances imaginable cannot really injure them, for ‘all things work together for Good to them that love God’ (Romans 8:28). Private property even may become part of the Christian’s Good, as affording the opportunity for the generosity which is so highly recommended as a Christian grace (Romans 12:8; Romans 12:13; 2 Corinthians 8:1-15). ...
(2) A second feature of the Christian view that distinguishes it from the Greek is that the Good is not the result of fortune or the reward of merit, but the gift of Gods grace (Romans 5:21; Romans 6:23). The Good includes deliverance from sin in the two-fold sense, corresponding to the two-fold reference of sin in relation to God, and in relation to a man’s own nature. This is a present Good claimed more or less, according to the measure of faith; but as Christians are not merely owners of the present but also heirs of the future Good (Romans 8:17; Titus 3:7, 1 Peter 1:4; cf. The Greek thinker, if he did hope for a future life, looked for the release of the soul from its imprisonment in the body-for a disembodied immortality; but the Christian Good includes not merely the survival of the soul in death, but resurrection-the restoration of the entire personality (Romans 8:23, Hebrews 11:8 Philippians 3:21). ...
(5) As we may surely reckon as an dement in the Christian Good the fellowship of believers, the membership of the body of Christ (1 Corinthians 12:12-31, Ephesians 1:23), the κοινωνία of the Spirit (2 Corinthians 13:14 : the common life of the Church in the Spirit), so the Christian life is not individual but universal; it is the subjection of all things to Christ, the destruction of all evil, the cessation of all pain and grief, the victory of the saints, and God all and in all. It is true that the expectation of an immediate return of Christ in power and glory precludes our interpreting this universal Good as a historical evolution of mankind in manners, morals, laws, institutions, and pieties to so glorious and blessed a consummation, and we are left uncertain as to the mode in which the process is to be conceived. ...
(6) There is one feature in the Christian Good peculiar to St. As a Pharisee he had felt the burden and the bondage of the Law, and groaned under its judgment, but he had discovered its impotence, and so for him the Christian Good included the end of the Law (1618400046_44; Galatians 5:1), for Christian morality is not legal-the observance of the letter-but spiritual-the expression of the new life found in Christ (2 Corinthians 3:1-11). It is certain that the Christian Church in the course of its history generally has been legal rather than spiritual in its morality, and so this part of the Christian Good has been unrealized. ...
(7) In the apostolic view of the Christian Good there are two features which may he regarded as of temporary and local rather than of permanent and universal significance for Christian faith: (a) the expectation of the speedy Second Advent of Christ in power and glory to usher in the Last Things, which faded out of the Christian consciousness, with from time to time futile attempts to revive it, as the course of human history contradicted it; and (b) the belief which became more prominent in subsequent centuries than it was in the Apostolic Age, that the evil to be overcome and destroyed was embodied in personal evil principles and powers, over whom Christ gained the victory, and from whom He effected deliverance for the believer (Romans 8:38-39, 1 Corinthians 15:24, Ephesians 1:21, Colossians 2:15). ...
Such is the Christian Good; is it regarded as destined to be universal? Does the NT otter us a theodicy? It has been already indicated that the Christian hope does include the victory of Christ over all His foes, and the subjection of all things to Him, and at last of Himself to God (1 Corinthians 15:24-28); but these confident predictions do not clearly or fully answer the question whether all men will at last be saved-that is, become sharers of the Good. This problem seems insoluble even with the data not only of the Scriptures, but also of human experience; and accordingly, whatever Christian wishes and hopes may be, we cannot affirm that the Christian Good presents the final destiny of the race in cloudless sunshine without any shadow; and thus the believer must walk not by sight, but by faith, in the belief that whatever the Heavenly Father does is wisest, kindest, best

Goodness (Human) - Two applications go side by side in the general usage of the word ‘goodness’ and are also found in the NT. On the one hand, it denotes an inherent quality without regard to its effect; on the other hand, the ‘goodness’ is predicated in view of the effect. Bravery is the Goodness of the aristocracy in action. Good objects, Good circumstances, ‘goods,’ in the sense of wealth or of delicacies, are all so designated, because of their inherent adaptation to benefit the owner or receiver. For the latter, used of persons, see Matthew 5:45; Matthew 12:34; Matthew 19:16-17; Matthew 20:15, Mark 10:18, Luke 18:19; Luke 23:50, John 7:12, Acts 11:24, Romans 5:7, Titus 2:5; of things, Matthew 12:34-35; Matthew 19:16, Luke 8:15; Luke 10:42, John 5:29, Acts 23:1, Romans 2:10; Romans 7:13; Romans 7:18-19; Romans 9:11; Romans 12:9; Romans 12:21; Romans 13:3; Romans 14:16; Romans 16:19, 2 Corinthians 5:10, Ephesians 4:29; Ephesians 6:8, 1 Thessalonians 3:6; 1 Thessalonians 5:15, 2 Thessalonians 2:17, 1 Timothy 1:5; 1 Timothy 1:19, Titus 2:10, 1 Peter 3:11; 1 Peter 3:13; 1 Peter 3:16, and frequently in the formula ‘good works. ’...
It will be observed that the ascription of Goodness to persons is rare in the NT. The reason for this is not to be sought in the biblical doctrine of sin as excluding human Goodness, for on that view the affirmation of Goodness with reference to works ought to be equally rare, which is not the case. The conception of ‘goodness,’ while not excluding, and even presupposing, on objective standard of this kind, does not in itself express it. This the word δίκαιος does, for δικαιοσύνη means Goodness as conformity to the Law of God and as approved by the Divine judgment. The term ‘good’ is reserved for the latter. Among the passages which refer to human persons Romans 5:7 not only extends the reach of ‘goodness’ beyond that of ‘righteousness,’ but also finds this overlapping in the spontaneous, benevolent character of the former. In 1 Peter 2:18 the ‘good’ and ‘gentle’ masters are so described from the point of view of their treatment of servants rather than of inherent quality. In John 7:12 there is some doubt as to whether ‘a Good man’ (in opposition to one who ‘deceiveth the people’) means a man of Good character or one of Good influence. Acts 11:24 and Titus 2:5 seem to be the only clear instances of the use of the word to describe inherent Goodness. The ‘good things’ and the ‘evil things’ spoken of in Matthew 12:34-35 are, of course, in themselves morally right or wrong, yet in the contest the reference is to blasphemy, so that the element of the Good or bad intent and effect con scarcely be excluded. Paul in Romans 7:12 says that the commandment is ἁγία καὶ δικαία καὶ ἀγαθή, the inherent perfection of the Law is affirmed not only by the first and second but also by the third attribute; still the ensuing question, ‘Was then that which is Good made death unto me?’ proves that ‘the Good’ is felt as that which has naturally combined with it a Good effect. The ‘good’ of the neighbour which is to be promoted according to Romans 15:2 is his ethical Good (‘unto edification’), but it is in part so called because it promotes his spiritual welfare. The ‘good work’ which God began in the Philippians (Philippians 1:6) is Good primarily because it has a beneficent, saving purpose, but probably the notion that it is productive or what is inherently Good in them is also present. Philemon 1:6) the Authorized Version renders τὸ ἀγαθόν σου correctly by ‘thy benefit’ (Revised Version ‘thy Goodness’). ‘A Good conscience’ (Acts 23:1, 1 Timothy 1:19, 1 Peter 3:21) is a conscience deriving its quality from its content, and therefore presupposes that the acts approved by it are Good in themselves. The phrase ‘good works’ admits equally well of both interpretations. There can be no doubt that in Acts 9:36, Romans 13:3, 2 Corinthians 9:8, 1 Timothy 2:10; 1 Timothy 5:10, 2 Timothy 2:21; 2 Timothy 3:1, Titus 1:16; Titus 3:1 the reference is mainly to the Good intent and effect of the deed. In other passages, however, like Romans 2:10, Ephesians 2:10, Colossians 1:10, 2 Thessalonians 2:17, the emphasis seems to rest not on the outward beneficent tendency, but on the inherent Good character of the work, as conformable to the Divine Law. Paul denies, of course, the meritoriousness of Good works as a ground of justification, he nevertheless is at one with Judaism in emphasizing their specific religious importance. For the reality of the Good work the presence of the disposition behind it is indispensable, but it is no less true that, for the completion of the Good as it exists in the heart, its embodiment in the Good work is essential. Paul) probably in each case describes that Form of Goodness which seeks the benefit of others. In 2 Thessalonians 1:11, ‘Our God … may fulfil every desire of Goodness and every work or faith with power,’ the desire and the work stand related as the wish and the execution, which secures for ἀγαθωσύνη here likewise the same sense of beneficence as is associated with the ‘work of faith

The desire of doing Good unconnected with any idea of advantage to ourselves is called disinterested benevolence, though some doubt, whether, strictly speaking, there be any such thing; as benevolence is always attended with a pleasure to ourselves, which forms a kind of mental interest. So far, however, as we are able to prefer the Good of others to our own, and sacrifice our own comfort for the welfare of any about us, so far it may be said to be disinterested

' At the same time our Lord has clearlyrevealed by His own words and those of His Apostles that there willbe a general judgment at the last day, when all, Good and bad, willhave to stand before the Throne of God, not as bodiless souls, butwith soul and body. And further, the Book of Revelation follows upthe words of Christ and His Apostles with some very distinctdisclosures as to the increased happiness of the Good and theincreased misery of the wicked after the final and open award ofthe Judge has been given in the general Judgment
Evangelize, Evangelism - "To evangelize" is to proclaim the Good news of the victory of God's salvation. But for Israel, the "good news" is that the Lord has freed (vindicated) the nation and its divinely anointed ruler from the hands of their enemies. When the lepers discover the abandoned camp of the Syrian siege-makers of Elisha's and Jehoram's day, they name it "a day of Good news" (2 Kings 7:9 ). In an act of worship the whole earth is exhorted to continually proclaim Good tidings. The prophet relates the proclamation of the Good news of the victory of God's salvation in progressive stages until the Gentiles are publishing it. ...
At God's initiative (41:27) a messenger arrives from Babylon bringing Good news of happiness (good, 52:7). Israel will know peace, Good, and salvation (52:7). The prophet emphasizes a Spirit-empowered messenger divinely sent "to bring Good news to the afflicted. Is that not what it means to "preach Good news to the afflicted (the oppressed poor)"? The term Isaiah uses ( anawim ) refers to those who are poor because of the oppression of the rich and powerful. Any proclamation of Good news to the oppressed poor, then, must present a holistic salvation with a spiritual center. ...
That the messenger's task is both to announce and to accomplish what is announced"to bring Good news to the afflicted to bind up the brokenhearted"has led some to conclude that Scripture views the proclamation itself as accomplishing the salvation. Such a view, although it takes cognizance of the Bible's claims for the saving power of the Good news, fails to reckon with the distinction between Jesus, who both proclaims and accomplishes salvation, and those who come after him, who simply proclaim its accomplishment. They have received the Good news of the victory of God's salvation and now are encouraged to become "bearers of Good news" themselves. They in turn will come to Jerusalem and "bear Good news of the praises of the Lord" (60:6). In the latter case, "great joy" is to be proclaimed as Good news to all the people. Jesus characterizes it as a time from which "the kingdom (reign) of God is proclaimed as Good news. ...
Jesus' mission is to be the divinely sent proclaimer of the Good news (Luke 4:43 ; Acts 10:36 ). Jesus' conduct of his earthly itinerant ministry of proclaiming the Good news is accompanied by healing miracles and combined with teaching (4:43; 7:22; 8:1; 20:1). Echoes of Isaiah and military victory imagery clearly underlie the expressions "proclaiming the Good news of the reign of God" and "the Good news of the kingdom. " The "hiddenness" aspect of Jesus' precross earthly mission prevented him from making consistent and explicit reference to himself as the embodiment of the Good news. Anyone who has received, believed, and experienced the salvation blessings of the Good news is qualified to proclaim it. To proclaim the Good news is to proclaim Messiah Jesus or the Lord Jesus or simply Jesus. ...
The Good news concerns the fulfillment of promises made to the Jews (13:32), so it is right that the proclamation be made to them first (3:26; 13:46). He was "set apart for the gospel [2] of God" (Romans 1:1 ). The divine enablement in proclaiming the Good news is a grace given; a spiritual gifting from the risen and exalted Lord, so much the work of Christ that Paul can say that the risen One himself comes and preaches peace to those who are afar off and to those who are near (Ephesians 2:17 ; 3:2,8 ; 4:11 ; 6:19 ). ...
As modeled in the early church Paul teaches that the proper messengers of the Good news are not only apostles and evangelists (Romans 1:9 ; cf. Since there is only one Good news, which Christians will recognize over against false gospels, this expression is in the end no meaningless tautology (Galatians 1:6-9 ). The response looked for is an understanding and believing of the Good news that leads to a calling on the Lord for salvation and an active obedience to that same Lord Jesus in this new relationship (Romans 1:5,16-17 ; 10:14 ; Ephesians 1:13 ; Colossians 1:5-6 ). A person proclaims the Good news moved both by the necessity of an entrusted stewardship (1Col 9:12,16-17,23; 1 Thessalonians 2:4 ) and commitment to the audience (Romans 1:15 ; Colossians 1:7 ; 1 Thessalonians 1:5 ; 2:8-9 ). ...
Paul delights in highlighting the spiritual transaction that occurs during the proclamation of the Good news. Neither this use nor the fact that a local pastor, Timothy, is instructed to do the work of an evangelist should lead us to the false conclusion that the biblical understanding of evangelism in its full exposition by Paul is so broadened that in the end it does not retain its sharp focus of proclamation of the Good news of salvation to the unsaved

Inner Man - According to Paul's understanding (Romans 7:22-23 ), human personality has three components: (1) the inmost self where the law dwells; Paul equated this with reason (nous , Romans 7:23 ); the inmost self approximates the rabbinic yeser hatob (inclination to Good); (2) the members or the flesh that is responsive to desire; the flesh approximates the rabbinic yeser harah (inclination to evil); and (3) the conscious I which is aware of both reason and desire. In rabbinic thought, the law served to tip the balance in favor of the Good inclination
Gratitude - Cogan (in his Treatise on the Passions, ) "is the powerful re-action of a well-disposed mind, upon whom benevolence has conferred some important Good. We shall not wonder at the peculiar strength and energy of this affection, when we consider that it is compounded of love placed upon the Good communicated, affection for the donor, and joy at the reception. Thus it has Goodness for its object, and the most pleasing, perhaps unexpected, exertions of Goodness for its immediate cause
Regeneration: Need of - A raw countryman having brought his gun to the gun-smith for repairs, the latter is reported to have examined it, and finding it to be almost too far gone for repairing, said, 'Your gun is in a very worn-out, ruinous, Good-for-nothing condition, what sort of repairing do you want for it ?' 'Well,' said the countryman, 'I don't see as I can do with anything short of a new stock, lock, and barrel; that ought to set it up again. The old nature cast aside as a complete wreck and Good for nothing, and a new one imparted
Resignation: Sustained by Faith - Recollecting himself, he stepped aside and prayed; after which his sister laughingly said to him, 'Brother, what is the Good of praying about a ring: will praying bring back your ring?'

Neighbor - In the fundamental text (Matthew 5:43), Christ rejects the distinction between neighbor and enemy, and teaches that the enemy who hates, persecutes, and calumniates His disciple, is to be loved, to be prayed for, and done Good to.

We should do to our neighbor, therefore, all the Good we would wish done to ourselves (Matthew 7). Even when the neighbor shows bad will and persecutes us (Matthew 5), or remains impenitent, and for the sake of the general Good, has to be cut off from the communion of the Church (Matthew 18), he remains our neighbor with the claims upon us involved in that term (Matthew 5)
Hope - Is the desire of some Good, attended with the possibility, at least of obtaining it; and is enlivened with joy greater or less, according to the probability there is of possessing the object of our hope.

But he left all this to join Jesus in the urgent and risky business of spreading the Good news of the kingdom of God (Matthew 10:5-23)

He could say that he had lived in all Good conscience before God, and yet he had been haling men and women to prison because they were Christians
Evangelism - ...
Evangelism is derived from the Greek word euaggelion , meaning “gospel” or “good news. ” The verbal forms of euaggelizesthai , meaning “to bring” or “to announce Good news” occur some fifty-five times (Acts 8:4 , Acts 8:25 , Acts 8:35 ; Acts 11:20 ) and are normally translated with the appropriate form of the word “preach. ” Evangelism has to do with the proclamation of the message of Good news. ...
Many would, therefore, prefer what might be described as a “holistic” definition, or one that takes into account the “good news of the kingdom. Such a definition takes into account the essential work of the Holy Spirit, the various ways of conveying the Good news, holistic concern for the persons involved, the need for actual communication and understanding of the message, and the necessity of productive church membership on the part of the convert. ...
Luke 8:2-56 shows how Jesus brought the Good news. Clearly he brought the Good news by word and deed, and not by word only. ...
Paul, in similar fashion, described how he had been used to “win obedience from the Gentiles, by word and deed, by the power of signs and wonders, by the power of the Spirit of God so that I have fully proclaimed the Good news of Christ” (Romans 15:18-19 NRSV)
Evil - Matter, he conceives, resists the will of the supreme Artificer, so that he cannot possibly execute his designs; and this is the cause of the mixture of Good and evil, which is found in the material world. "It cannot be," says he, "that evil should be destroyed, for there must always be something contrary to Good;" and again, "God wills, as far as it is possible, every thing Good, and nothing evil. Thus, when Chrysippus was asked whether diseases were to be ascribed to Divine providence, he replied that it was not the intention of nature that these things should happen; nor were they conformable to the will of the Author of nature and Parent of all Good things; but that, in framing the world, some inconveniences had adhered by necessary consequence, to his wise and useful plan. These persons perceiving a mixture of Good and evil, and being persuaded that so many inconsistencies and disorders could not proceed from a Good being, supposed the existence of a malevolent principle, or god, directly contrary to the Good one; hence they derived corruption and death, diseases, griefs, mischiefs, frauds, and villanies, while from the Good being they deduced nothing but Good. Samuel Clarke, in his "Demonstration of the Being and Attributes of God," deduces from the possibility and real existence of human liberty an answer to the question, What is the cause and original of evil? For liberty, he says, implying a natural power of doing evil, as well as Good; and the imperfect nature of finite beings making it possible for them to abuse this their liberty to an actual commission of evil; and it being necessary to the order and beauty of the whole, and for displaying the infinite wisdom of the Creator, that there should be different and various degrees of creatures, whereof, consequently, some must be less perfect than others; hence there necessarily arises a possibility of evil, notwithstanding that the Creator is infinitely Good. The second kind of evil, which we call natural evil, is either a necessary consequence of the former; as death, to a creature on whose nature immortality was never conferred; and then it is no more properly an evil than the former; or else it is counterpoised, in the whole, with as great or greater Good, as the afflictions and sufferings of Good men, and then also it is not properly an evil; or else, lastly, it is a punishment; and then it is a necessary consequent of the third and last sort of evil, namely, moral evil. And thus all sorts of evils have entered into the world, without any diminution to the infinite Goodness of its Creator and Governor. And though many questions may yet be asked, respecting a subject so mysterious as the permission of evil by the Supreme Being, this is a part of his counsels of which we can have no cognizance, unless he is pleased to reveal them; and as revelation is silent upon this subject, except generally, that all his acts, his permissive ones as well as others, are "wise, and just and Good" we may rest assured, that beyond what is revealed, human wisdom in the present state can never penetrate

Charity - "Charity, " says an able writer, "consists not in speculative ideas of general benevolence floating in the head, and leaving the heart, as speculations often do, untouched and cold: neither is it confined to that indolent Good nature which makes us rest satisfied with being free from inveterate malice, or ill will to our fellow creatures, without prompting us to be of service to any. From general Good will to all, it extends its influence particularly to those with whom we stand in nearest connection, and who are directly within the sphere of our Good offices. True charity attempts not to shut our eyes to the distinction between Good and bad men; nor to warm our hearts equally to those who befriend and those who injure us. It reserves our esteem for Good men, and our complacency for our friends

Human nature...
God created the world Good and he wanted the people of his creation to enjoy it with him (Genesis 1:31; 1 Timothy 4:4; Hebrews 4:4; Hebrews 4:10). However, as freedom produced the possibility of devotion and Goodness, so also it produced the possibility of rebellion and evil. Firstly, it speaks of evil in a moral sense similar to that considered above, where evil is the opposite of moral Goodness (Proverbs 8:13; Jeremiah 7:24; Micah 2:1; Matthew 5:45; Matthew 15:19; Romans 7:19; Romans 7:21; 2 Thessalonians 3:2; for details see SIN). The word again means the opposite of Good, but with a non-moral meaning (Deuteronomy 7:15; 2 Samuel 15:14; Matthew 7:17; Luke 16:25). ...
When the Old Testament says that God sends both Good and evil, it is referring not to moral Good and moral evil, but to life’s blessings and troubles. Israelites in Old Testament times acknowledged God’s overall control in all the affairs of life, both Good and bad (Job 2:10; Isaiah 45:7).

Proper Psalms - Certain great days of the Church are so importantin the truths they set forth, the Church hath thought Good to orderthat all Holy Scriptures that can possibly be used in illustrationthereof shall be read on those days
Motives - Motives pose at least a twofold dilemma: (1) the status of a Good deed done for the wrong reason or an evil deed done with Good (or even without) intent; and (2) the effect of a motive (good or bad) that never has opportunity to find fulfillment. Good motives can prompt people to actions that have unfortunate results (Matthew 13:28-30 ), a legal principle that has become the basis of much Western law: actus non facit reum nisi mens sit rea ("The act itself does not make one a criminal unless done with criminal intent"). Good motives may result in conflicting actions: some early Christians did not, while others did, eat a special diet; some believers did not, while others did, observe certain days as sacred. The matter is further complicated by the fact that what individuals intend by their actions is not always achieved, and, conversely, every action results in unintended consequences (both Good and evil ). God's habit of transforming the evil motives of humans into Good results suggests that God is mercifully sympathetic with the human condition: "You intended to harm me, but God intended it for Good in order to accomplish what is now being done, the saving of many lives" (Genesis 50:20 ; cf. A sin of omission becomes reprehensible for "anyone who knows the Good he ought to do and doesn't do it" (James 4:17 ). The utilitarian perspective that one should be motivated by the Good or bad effects that result from an action, not the intrinsic Good or evil of an action, finds little support in the Bible, since performing a deed for what one perceives to be a Good result presumes upon the future: one cannot know for sure that the deed will have the desired effect that the motive seeks, and none can calculate all the consequences of any deed
Titus, Epistle to - The epistle urges the maintenance of Good works and order in the church, and states the principles on which they are founded. Titus was to speak things that became sound teaching, with exhortations suited to those of different ages, and to servants, himself being in all things a pattern of Good works, and his teaching such as could not be condemned. The grace of God that carries salvation for all has appeared, teaching how a Christian is to live, awaiting the blessed hope and appearing of the glory of the great God and Saviour Jesus Christ, who died to redeem such from all lawlessness, and to purify to Himself a peculiar people, zealous of Good works. Titus was to teach subjection to worldly powers and obedience to every Good work. Titus was to insist on the maintenance of Good works, but foolish questions were to be avoided
Fruit - The fruit of the righteous, that is, the counsel, example, instruction, and reproof of the righteous, is a tree of life, is a means of much Good, both temporal and eternal; and that not only to himself, but to others also, Proverbs 11:30 . Solomon says, in Proverbs 12:14 , "A man shall be satisfied with Good by the fruit of his mouth;" that is, he shall receive abundant blessings from God as the reward of that Good he has done, by his pious and profitable discourses. The same Apostle, in Ephesians 5:9 , comprehends the fruits of the sanctifying Spirit in these three things; namely, Goodness, righteousness, and truth. ...
The fruits of righteousness are such Good works and holy actions as spring from a gracious frame of heart: "Being filled with the fruits of righteousness," Php_1:11 . When fruit is spoken of Good men, then it is to be understood of the fruits or works of holiness and righteousness; but when of evil men, then are meant the fruits of sin, immorality, and wickedness
Grace - He chooses to save people because of his sovereign grace alone, not because of their Good works (Romans 11:6; Ephesians 1:5-6; see ELECTION). )...
God’s grace in the lives of believers...

God’s grace continues to work in their lives, giving them the inner power to discipline themselves, to do Good, to endure suffering and to triumph over temptation (Romans 6:14-15; 2 Corinthians 12:9; 2 Timothy 2:1; Titus 2:11-14; see FREEDOM; Good WORKS)

Stoics - The Stoics generally maintained that nature impels every man to pursue whatever appears to him to be Good. Every ne, therefore, who has a right discernment of what is Good, will be chiefly concerned to conform to nature in all his actions and pursuits.

Kindness - Matthew 11:30 (‘easy’), Luke 5:39 (Authorized Version χρηστότερος, ‘better,’ Revised Version χρηστός, ‘good’), Romans 2:4 bis (‘goodness’), Romans 3:12 (‘good’), Romans 11:22 (‘goodness’), 1 Corinthians 15:33 (‘good’), Galatians 5:22 (Authorized Version ‘gentleness,’ Revised Version ‘kindness’), 1 Peter 2:3 (‘gracious’). ’ Its primary meaning, therefore, is ‘usable,’ ‘serviceable,’ ‘good,’ ‘adequate,’ ‘efficient’ (of persona as well as of things). This utilitarian sense of ‘goodness’ passes over into the ethical sense in which it becomes the opposite to such words as πονηρός, μοχθηρός, αἰσχρός. ’ The process of the latter transition may perhaps still be observed in the phrase τὰ χρηστά =‘good services,’ ‘benefits,’ ‘kindnesses. ’...
In the NT there is only one instance where it has the sub-ethical meaning ‘good for use,’ viz. Luke 5:39; here the old wine is said to be ‘good’ or ‘better. In certain instances it may designate moral Goodness in general. In 1 Corinthians 15:33 the proverbial saying φθείρουσιν ἤθη χρηστὰ ὁμιλίαι κακαί, ‘evil companionships corrupt Good morals’ (or ‘characters’), has χρηστός in the same general sense, the opposite here being κακός. In all other cases there are indications that some specific quality of moral Goodness is intended. Most clearly this is apparent in Galatians 5:22, for here χρηστότης stands among a number of Christian graces and is even distinguished from ἀγαθωσύνη, ‘goodness. In Luke 6:35 God is said to be χρηστός towards the unthankful and evil, and the statement serves to urge the preceding exhortation: ‘love your enemies, do them Good, and lend, never despairing. In Luke 2:4 the χρηστότης is associated with ‘forbearance’ and ‘longsuffering’; it is that attitude of God by which doing Good in the face of evil He leads men to repentance

Hopkinsians - It wishes and seeks the Good of every individual, so far as is consistent with the greatest Good for the whole, which is comprised in the glory of God and the perfection and happiness of his kingdom. This is reduced into love to God, and our neighbour as ourselves; and universal Good-will comprehends all the love to God, our neighbour, and ourselves, required in the divine law, and therefore must be the whole of holy obedience. ...
Again; holy gratitude is nothing but Good- will to God and our neighbour, in which we ourselves are included; and correspondent affection, excited by a view of the Good-will and kindness of God. Universal Good-will also implies the whole of the duty we owe to our neighbour, for justice, truth, and faithfulness, are comprised in universal benevolence; so are temperance and chastity. For an undue indulgence of our appetites and passions is contrary to benevolence, as tending to hurt ourselves or others; and so opposite to the general Good, and the divine command, in which all the crime of such indulgence consists. By this is meant an interested, selfish affection, by which a person sets himself up as supreme, and the only object of regard; and nothing is Good or lovely in his view, unless suited to promote his own private interest. This is the foundation of all covetousness and sensuality, as it blinds people's eyes, contracts their hearts, and sinks them down, so that they look upon earthly enjoyments as the greatest Good. When any object of Good is proposed and promised to us upon asking, it clearly evinces that there can be no impotence in us with respect to obtaining it, besides the disapprobation of the will: and that inability which consists in disinclination, never renders any thing improperly the subject of precept or command. For if the law is Good, death is due to those who have broken it. That the introduction of sin is upon the whole, for the general Good. For the wisdom and power of the Deity are displayed in carrying on designs of the greatest Good; and the existence of moral evil has undoubtedly occasioned a more full, perfect, and glorious discovery of the infinite perfections of the divine nature, than could otherwise have been made to the view of creatures. If the extensive manifestations of the pure and holy nature of God, and his infinite aversion to sin, and all his inherent perfections, in their genuine fruits and effects, is either itself the greatest Good, or necessarily contains it, it must necessarily follow that the introduction of sin is for the greatest Good

Good Samaritan, Parable of the - When Our Lord approves his answer, the doctor wishes to justify himself for putting a question which he was so well able to answer, by asking: And who is my neighbor? Since a more or less abstract definition could give occasion to distinctions and discussions, Jesus answered by giving a concrete illustration in the parable of the Good Samaritan. A priest approaches, who might be expected to give Good example and obey the Law's precept of charity towards the neighbor, especially as the victim is apparently a fellow countryman, but he passes by. At once moved by compassion, he attends to the needs of the unfortunate, then conveys him to an inn, and pays in advance for the care for the man a sum equivalent to two days wages, promising to make Good on his return any further expense incurred by the innkeeper

Works - One evidence of saving faith, however, is the existence of Good works in the lives of believers (Matthew 5:16 ; Acts 9:36 ; Ephesians 2:10 ; Colossians 1:10 ; 2 Thessalonians 2:17 ; 1 Timothy 2:10 ; 1Timothy 5:10,1 Timothy 5:25 ; Titus 2:7 ,Titus 2:7,2:14 ; Hebrews 10:24 ; 1 Peter 2:12 ). However, closer examination shows that James used the word “works” to refer to what Paul meant by “good works. Dealing with a different situation, James emphasized that true faith shows itself in Good works, a point Paul that also made. He commends His churches for their Good works and rebukes them for the works that are not worthy of His people (Revelation 2:2 ,Revelation 2:2,2:5 ,Revelation 2:5,2:9 ,Revelation 2:9,2:13 ,Revelation 2:13,2:19 ,Revelation 2:19,2:23 ,Revelation 2:23,2:26 ; Revelation 3:1-2 ,Revelation 3:1-2,3:8 ,Revelation 3:8,3:15 ). They will be rewarded for Good works but any unworthy works will not survive God's judgment (1 Corinthians 3:10-15 )
Tares - Our blessed Lord having been graciously pleased to speak of the mysteries of his kingdom under the similitude of Good seed, as in opposition to tares, the subject becomes exceedingly interesting, that we may obtain a just and proper notion concerning the tares. ...
The parable of our Lord of the wheat and tares contains in its first, plain and obvious sense many delightful instructions; but under this view which eastern writers give, that tares are not simply weeds, that by springing up with Good seed check the growth, but are destructive and poisonous, the parable becomes infinitely more pointed. " (See Matthew 13:38-39) But this view of them, as in their nature poisonous, however in appearance like to the Good seed, is certainly a striking beauty in the parable. ...
I would only beg to add a short observation upon the subject, and just to say, under this view, how mistaken must be the notion of those, who fancy that when our Lord said, Let both grow together until the harvest, that this was meant to say, perhaps the tares if continued under the means of grace might become Good corn. Neither can the children of the wicked one become heirs of the kingdom, however like tares in the midst of the Good seed they may grow up in the same field, and bear an outward resemblance for a while to the true corn
Gospel - is the English word used to translate the Greek word for “good news. Although “gospel” translates a Greek word from the New Testament, the concept of Good news itself finds its roots in the Hebrew language of the Old Testament. ...
Development in the Old Testament Bisar is the Hebrew verb which means “to proclaim Good news. ” Unlike the English language, Hebrew is able to convey the subject of the proclamation in the verb's root; no direct object was needed with the verb bisar to make clear that the subject of an announcement was “good news. To proclaim the Good news of Israel's success in battle was to proclaim God's triumph over God's enemies. Believing credit for the victory belonged to God, the Israelites' proclamation of the Good news of victory was, in fact, proclamation about God. If Israel proclaimed Good news when God delivered the nation from its enemies, individuals ought also to proclaim Good news when God delivered them from personal distress ( Psalm 40:10 ). The arrival of this Messiah would be Good news. The Good news of God's saving work and the proclamation of that news cannot be separated. Christians increasingly used euanggelion (the noun derived from euangelizesthai) as a specific term to describe the Good news of Jesus. However, because the Greek language now allowed the content of their proclamation to be separated from the idea of proclamation itself, writers of the New Testament could also say the Good news was confessed, taught, spoken, told, announced, and witnessed. Godspell meant “the story about a god” and was used because the story about Jesus was Good news. Because euaggelion was used specifically to refer to Good news of Jesus, some translators have used other words to translate bisar in the Old Testament, even though the meaning of the two words are roughly the same. This distinction has been drawn in order to differentiate between the Good news promised by the prophets and the Good news which Jesus actually brings. Only God calls and commissions the messengers of this Good news, and, in addition, only God gives the messengers the story they are to make known (Romans 10:14-15 ; 1 John 1:5 ). ...
Therefore, the proclamation of the Good news is the continuation of the work which God began in Jesus Christ. God's messengers are not merely telling about the history of salvation when they proclaim the Good news; rather, they are an integral part of the work which continues through their efforts. ” Mark offers no explanation what the Good news is or what information it contains. ...
The need for Good news assumes a bad situation. The bad situation in which humans find themselves and the reason they need Good news is that sin has entered each of their lives (John 8:7 ; Romans 3:23 ). ...
The fact that forgiveness, freedom from sin, and a new life are possible is Good news. They wrote down the Good news of Jesus to strengthen, to educate, and to encourage those who already accepted its message

Gospel - From the Anglo-Saxon God-spell, "good tidings," is the English translation of the Greek euaggelion, which signifies "good" or "glad tidings. " The term refers to the Good news of the new dispensation of redemption ushered in by the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ.

Concupiscence - The New Testament knows desire can be Good (Matthew 13:17 ; Luke 22:15 ; Philippians 1:23 ; 1 Thessalonians 2:17 ).

Such desire can be for sex (Matthew 5:28 ), material Goods (Mark 4:19 ), riches (1 Timothy 6:9 ), and drunkenness (1 Peter 4:3 ). The power of sin then changed the Good commandment into an instrument to arouse human desires to experience new arenas of life
Angels - ...
Good and bad angels...
At some time before the creation of humans, some of the angels, under the leadership of one who became known as Satan, rebelled against God and so fell from their original sinless state (2 Peter 2:4; Judges 1:6). As a result there are Good angels and evil angels. ...
Both Good and bad angels are under God’s sovereign rule, the difference between them being that the Good angels are obedient and the evil angels rebellious. Again these expressions may apply to Good angels and bad angels (Job 1:6; Job 2:1; Exodus 3:2-6; Job 15:15; Job 38:7; Psalms 89:5; Psalms 89:7; Revelation 9:1; Daniel 7:10; Revelation 12:9). (The remainder of this article will be concerned only with Good angels
Gospel (2) - Formerly it was thought to be the literal translation, meaning ‘good-story. ’ εὐαγγέλιον was originally used for ‘the reward of Good tidings,’ and traces of this usage are found in LXX Septuagint; cf. But the word came to denote the ‘good tidings’ themselves; and this is the Christian usage. In Isaiah 61:1 the prophet describes the function of the Servant of Jahweh (or perhaps his own function) in these words: ‘The Spirit of the Lord God is upon me; because the Lord hath anointed me to preach Good tidings unto the meek. Good tidings are announced to them. A messenger hastens to Jerusalem, as she sits in the dust of her ruins, bringing ‘good tidings. These instances exhibit clearly the meaning ‘good tidings’; and both are claimed in NT to describe the Christian message. ’ He claimed to be a preacher of Good tidings to the poor. He is Jahweh’s Anointed sent to bring Good tidings of great joy to all the people (Luke 2:10). He made frequent use of the word, and soon after the rejection in Nazareth He described His Messianic function by it: ‘I must preach the Good tidings of the kingdom of God to the other cities also; for therefore was I sent’ (Luke 4:43). But closer examination shows that the term was not used by the Evangelists to describe all that Jesus said; nor was the verb ‘preach Good tidings’ descriptive of all His work. It was reserved for the ‘good tidings’ that He preached. In addition to these ‘good tidings,’ there was ‘teaching’ that belonged to another category. Listeners would hardly describe such teaching as Matthew 5:19-48 by the title ‘good tidings,’ nor could the word apply naturally to Matthew 10:34-39; Matthew 12:31-37; Matthew 19:9-12; Matthew 21:33-44; Matthew 21:23-24. ...
(a) The phrase ‘the gospel of God’ indicates a message from God and about God that is Good news to men. This ‘gospel of God’ includes, further, the Good news to the heavily laden Jew that ‘the Father seeketh true worshippers to worship in spirit and in truth’ (John 4:23; cf. ]'>[1] ...
(b) The phrase ‘the gospel of the kingdom’ describes the Good news brought by Jesus in its relation to that Kingdom of God or of heaven which He proclaimed. But there is Good news concerning the Kingdom, and this Good news is an essential part of the message of the Kingdom. Moreover, this Kingdom, which is offered to all, is a far higher Good than men dreamed (cf. The Kingdom, as Jesus preached it, offered the highest conceivable Good to all men. It satisfied the religious instincts of the race; and because these are the deepest and most universal instincts, the message that they can be satisfied is indeed ‘good news’ (cf. Jesus preached ‘the gospel of the kingdom’ when He offered the highest spiritual Good to all penitent and humble souls. He connected the Good tidings with His own person. As the Good news Rhoda brought to the praying Church was that Peter himself was at the door (Acts 12:14), so the presence of Jesus in the world was ‘glad tidings of great joy to all people’ (Luke 2:10). There is a close connexion between this ‘good news’ and the Good news about God and about the Kingdom. He was the Good Shepherd giving His life for the sheep (John 10:11). It is Good news about facts. Jesus used it to describe the ‘good news’ He brought to the poor and the meek of the earth; and this ‘gospel’ must ever be the foundation upon which the Church builds, though the foundation is not to be confused with the fabric erected upon it

But it has been asked, if none but the elect can believe, and no man has any ability in himself to comply with the call, and as the Almighty knows that none but those to whom he gives grace can be effectually called, of what use is it to insist on a general and external call? To this it is answered, that, by the external call, gross enormous crimes are often avoided; habits of vice have been partly conquered; and much moral Good at least has been produced. It also observed, that though a man cannot convert himself, yet he has a power to do some things that are materially Good, though not Good in all those circumstances that accompany or flow from regeneration: such were Ahab's humility, 1 Kings xxi 29; Nineveh's repentance, Jeremiah 3:5 ; and Herod's hearing of John, Mark 6:20

The distinction between φθόνος and ζῆλος (in the Good sense) is broad and deep. Nothing but Good can come of the strenuous endeavour to equal and even excel the virtues, graces, and high achievements of another. ’ ζῆλος (from ζέω, ‘boil’) is, in fact, like its Hebrew equivalent קִנְאָה (‘heat,’ ‘ardour’), an ethically neutral energy, which may become either Good or bad, according to the quality of the objects to which it is directed and the spirit in which they are pursued.

Titus, Theology of - Jesus was the One who "gave himself for us to redeem us from all wickedness and to purify for himself a people that are his very own, eager to do what is Good" (v. Jesus Christ "gave himself for us to redeem us from all wickedness and to purify for himself a people that are his very own, eager to do what is Good" (2:14). One is that believers may exhibit their faith by their own Good works. As God's special possessions, we are to be "eager to do what is Good" (2:14). Christians are to be "subject to rulers and authorities, obedient, ready to do whatever is Good" (3:1). Continuing this theme of Good works, Paul encourages Titus to speak confidently "so that those who have trusted in God may be careful to devote themselves to what is Good" (3:8). Finally, all Christians are to learn "to devote themselves to doing what is Good, in order that they may provide for daily necessities and not live unproductive lives" (3:14). As Paul stresses in the practical sections of his other epistles, there is to be a balance in the Christian's life between saving faith and Good works, salvation and sanctification
Boldness - ’-(b) In the sense of being of Good courage it is employed to tender θαρρεῖν in 2 Corinthians 5:6; 2 Corinthians 5:8; 2 Corinthians 7:16 (Revised Version ; the Authorized Version having ‘confident,’ ‘confidence’ in these places). In 2 Corinthians 10:1-2, where the same verb is rendered ‘to be bold’ in Authorized Version , the Revised Version prefers ‘to be of Good courage’; and similarly ‘we may boldly say’ of Authorized Version in Hebrews 13:6 is rendered in Revised Version ‘with Good courage we say. Clement’s words are a Good illustration; ‘The Good workman takes with boldness the bread which is the reward of labour, but the slothful and the indolent dare not meat the eye of their employer’ (1 Clem
Enthusiasm - This word, it seems, is used both in a Good and a bad sense. On the other hand, if the mind be enlightened, if the will which was perverse be renovated, detached from evil, and inclined to Good; if the powers be roused to exertion for the promotion of the divine glory, and the Good of men; if the natural corruptions of the heart be suppressed; if peace and joy arise from a view of the Goodness of God, attended with a spiritual frame of mind, a heart devoted to God, and a holy, useful life: however this may be branded with the name of enthusiasm, it certainly is from God, because bare human efforts, unassisted by him, could never produce such effects as these
Antinomians - Those who maintain that the law is of no use or obligation under the gospel dispensation, or who hold doctrines that clearly supersede the necessity of Good works. The Antinomians took their origin from John Agricola, about the year 1538, who taught that the law is no way necessary under the Gospel; that Good works do not promote our salvation, nor ill one's hinder it; that repentance is not to be preached from the decalogue, but only from the Gospel. For instance; when they have asserted justification to be eternal, without distinguishing between the secret determination of God in eternity, and the execution of it in time; when they have spoken lightly of Good works, or asserted that believers have nothing to do with the law of God, without fully explaining what they mean: when they assert that God is not angry with his people for their sins, nor in any sense punishes them for them, without distinguishing between fatherly corrections and vindictive punishment: these things, whatever be the private sentiments of those who advance them, have a tendency to injure the minds of many

Adam - He was placed in the garden of Eden to dress it and to keep it, showing that occupation was a Good thing for man even in innocence. God said also that it was not Good for man to be alone, so He caused him to sleep, took from him a rib, and of this 'builded' a woman. ...
Adam and Eve were permitted to eat of all the trees of the garden except the tree of the knowledge of Good and evil: of the which if they ate, in the same day they should die

Cameronists - or CAMERONITES, is the denomination of a party of Calvinists in France, who asserted, that the cause of men's doing Good or evil proceeds from the knowledge which God infuses into them; and that God does not move the will physically, but only morally, in virtue of its dependence on the judgment of the mind. Bayle represents him as "a man of great parts and judgment, of an excellent memory, very learned, a Good philosopher, Good humoured, liberal not only of his knowledge but his purse, a great talker, a long-winded preacher, little versed in the fathers, inflexible in his opinions, and inclined to turbulence

Satan - The chief of these evil angelic spirits is one known as the adversary – the adversary of God, his people, and all that is Good. ...
God’s rebellious servant...
We should not think that Satan is in some way the equal of God, one being a Good God and the other an evil God. There are Good angels and evil angels, Satan being chief of the evil ones (Matthew 25:31; Matthew 25:41; Ephesians 6:12; Judges 1:9; Revelation 12:7-9; see ANGELS; DEMONS). ...
Also there are not, as it were, two kingdoms, a kingdom of Good where God is absolute ruler and a kingdom of evil where Satan is absolute ruler. He opposes all that is Good and encourages all that is evil. He works not only through people who are obviously evil (Acts 13:8-10; Ephesians 2:1-3; 1 John 3:10; 1 John 3:12; Revelation 2:13), but also through those who appear to be Good (Mark 8:33; John 8:44; Acts 5:3; Revelation 2:9; Revelation 3:9)
