Martin Luther - At this time the main points of his creed, seem to have been: the Bible is the sole rule of faith; man is totally corrupt; he Lacks moral free will and all his acts, even sin, are the work of God; he is justified by believing God will save him; this faith includes a pardon of sin and all its penalties; Baptism, the Eucharist, and Penance are the only sacraments; the hierarchy and exterior worship are unnecessary; the priesthood is universal; there is no visible Church. The moral corruption and intellectual decay among his followers resulting from his teachings on concupiscence and man's Lack of free will nearly drove him insane; he imagined himself the special object of the devil's hostility

Fear - in a hurricane at sea (Acts 27:17)-which is not specifically human, spiritual fear is distinctive of man, whose motives and actions Lack their finest quality unless they are influenced by it. To this fear it gives a special name, calling it not φόβος but δειλία (2 Timothy 1:7), a fearfulness which is synonymous with cowardice, and the fearful (δειλοί, Revelation 21:8), who prove apostates in the hour of danger, denying Christ and worshipping Caesar, stand first in the black list of those who go down to the second death. ...
The NT shrinks from attributing φόβος to Christ, yet something would have been Lacking in His matchless character if He had not given the best illustration of the presence of fear in even the most filial life

Ecclesiastes, Theology of - He is obviously moved by what he sees, but he never sees ways to soften the suffering of the oppressed or even to become one of the comforters that they Lack (4:1).

Mind/Reason - ...
Developments in the Hebrew Old Testament are not, for Lack of such specialized vocabulary, to be thought of as less sophisticated, but rather as closely related to the Hebrew culture, which considered the intellectual and emotional dimensions of human life from the perspective of the whole person: heart, soul, and spirit are not separate parts of the inner person, but each is a reference to the whole inner person and is to be viewed in relation to the body. The foolish Lack spiritual understanding (Luke 24:25 ; Galatians 3:1,3 ; cf

In two incidents on the Sea of Galilee the disciples, when rescued by Jesus, respond with fear and amazement that are identified as a Lack of faith (Mark 4:40-41 ) or a hardness of heart (Mark 6:50-52 )
Kings, First And Second, Theology of - Of significance is the Lack of any mention of Jeremiah, who figured so prominently at the end of Judah's political history.

Lord's Day, the - ...
Noteworthy in these early texts is the Lack of identification of Sunday with the Jewish Sabbath
Thankfulness, Thanksgiving - The Old Testament Lacks an independent vocabulary of thanksgiving or gratitude; it uses the verb yada [1], and the cognate noun toda [2], both ordinarily translated as "praise, " to convey the concept. For example, Paul thanks God for the faith of the Romans (1:8), for his grace given to the Corinthians so that they Lack no spiritual gift (1 Corinthians 1:4-7 ), and for the Philippians' partnership in the gospel (1:3-5; see also 1 Thessalonians 1:2-3 ; 2 Thessalonians 1:3-4 )
Agriculture - Shallow soil and Lack of moisture during the hot dry summer encouraged the withering of the seeds that did sprout into young plants on the field's outer borders. Constant attention had to be given to the trailing branches of carefully chosen varieties in order to yield sweet green or black grapes
Terah - And it must surely have been that Adam lost the fatherhood of all penitent, believing, and holy men by the Lack of depth and intensity and endurance in his repentance. Enoch, in the Lack of Abel, would have made a model Abraham. The Lord thy God, so sang the call and the promise in Abram's hopeful heart-The Lord thy God bringeth thee into a good land, a land of brooks of water, of fountains and depths that spring out of valleys and hills; a land of wheat, and barley, and vines, and fig trees, and pomegranates; a land of oil olive and honey; a land wherein thou shalt eat bread without scarceness, thou shalt not Lack anything in it; a land whose stones are iron, and out of whose hills thou mayest dig brass
Humanity of Christ - This is the central idea of the Fourth Gospel; but other elements are not Lacking, as the necessity of the humanity to the work of instruction, which was a main element of Jesus’ work (John 3:11; John 3:19; John 3:31-32), and which culminated in the revelation of the Father, which needed humanity as the medium of communication to human beings (John 14:9, John 12:45, John 16:15). He did not chide them for Lack of faith in such a waking providence of His own, of which they had no knowledge, but for their Lack of faith in God (cf
Friendship - The outwardly proper behaviour of the elder brother is marred by the Lack of filial love; and his complaint, ‘Thou never gavest me a kid that I might make merry with my friends,’ shows how blind he was to the lavish affection of a father who bestowed his all upon him,—‘Son, thou art ever with me, and all that I have is thine. ...
In the second part of the Fourth Gospel the affection of Jesus is seen to Lack the slightest ‘grain of depreciation,’ which Schopenhauer recommends among friends. 106; Hugh Black, Friendship, 1900; Hilty, Briefe, Leipzig, 1903; Tennyson, In Memoriam; Martensen, Christian Ethics, iii
Herod - By sheer force of personality and Lack of hesitancy in executing even the close members of his own family, he strengthened his position as undisputed ruler of Palestine under the permission of Roman authority
False Prophet - ...
The theology of the false prophets was characterized by the following: (1) a selective appeal to the Davidic/Zion and Sinaitic covenants as a type of fire insurance against any threatened calamity; (2) an exclusive teaching of hope/salvation with no attention given to any potential adversities for Lack of obedience to God's Word; and (3) a constant appeal to what the masses wanted to hear as a basis for promoting their own power and the status quo
Palestine - Moses describes it as "a good land, a land of brooks of water, of fountains and depths that spring out of valleys and hills; a land of wheat, and barley, and vines, and fig trees, and pomegranates; a land of oil olive, and honey; a land wherein thou shalt not eat bread without scarceness, thou shalt not Lack any thing in it; a land whose stones are iron, and out of whose hills thou mayest dig brass" (Deuteronomy 8:7-9 )
Joel - Animals desperately roamed the wasteland groaning and perishing for Lack of food. Emphasis on ethical living, so characteristic of preexilic prophets such as Amos and Micah, was Lacking
Theophilus (2) - 1–11) was advisable, and it was with this end in view that the Third Gospel and its sequel were addressed to him, in order to remove uncertainties caused by diversity, inexactness, Lack of thoroughness, and absence of order, in the current accounts of Christ’s life on earth
Readiness - , Mark 13:34, Luke 19:13), and the Lack of personal preparedness cannot be made up for by connexion with the believing community, animated by the common hope of the Lord’s appearing (Matthew 25:1-2; Matthew 25:9). The perils attending a delayed Parousia, which must be guarded against with ceaseless vigilance, arise from a weakened sense of obligation issuing in slackness and lethargy, the sin of ‘the untrimmed lamp and the ungirt loin’ (Mark 13:36, Luke 12:35 f
Worship - The explanation of the emergence of the Christian Sunday from these beginnings is plagued by a Lack of precise information and by doctrinal disputes
Heart - When a person Lacks insight the Hebrew speaks of a "lack of heart
Blood - According to the Epistle to the Hebrews, while the animal sacrifices as such were irrational, destitute of personal consent, intermittent, incapable of purifying, spiritual efficacy (Hebrews 10:4), this Lack was more than set off by the blood of Christ, (b) As in the Old Dispensation all persons ministering at the altar, utensils of service and worship, and means of approach to God were cleansed with blood as a medium of purification (cf

Pity Compassion - ’ While this may be in contrast to utter Lack of sympathy, the context in our passage compels us to understand it in contrast to excess of indignation against sin
Vicarious Sacrifice - (1) The Lack of unity in the Biblical mode of representation, the view-point of Christ’s work and sufferings being diverse and manifold. In studying the Scriptures, therefore, to ascertain in what sense we are to understand Christ’s vicarious sacrifice, we are to note the individualism of the expressions, their figurative character, their Lack of logical exactness and definition, their relation to their time, and the fact that their authors are concerned with stating facts and results rather than developing theories. To the founding of His Kingdom He devoted Himself with singleness of heart, understanding well the hazard it involved; for He realized the traditionalism of the age, its formalism, its Lack of spiritual vision, its worldly lust and ambition, and He knew full well the opposition He would stimulate and the conflicts He must encounter
Diseases - It was in such instances that the Lack of effective remedies was most painfully apparent. Despite the Lack of modern antiseptics, anesthetics, antibiotics, and blood transfusions, many of the operations were successful
Miracle - , Jairus Matthew 9:18 ; and the hemorrhaging woman 9:22) or are hindered by their Lack thereof (the disbelief in Nazareth Mark 6:4-6 a). On other occasions they seem more designed to instill faith where it has been Lacking (e. , in praising the great faith of the centurion whose servant was sick Matthew 8:5-13 ), including the periodic Lack of faith of his own disciples (e. Blackburn, Theios Aner and the Markan Miracle Traditions ; L
Fellowship (2) - They were unremittingly active in co-operation with him for the spread of the gospel; and whatever his needs, bodily or spiritual, might be, they were ready to do their best by gifts or sympathy to supply the Lack. The Spirit took the life of believer or church, and produced in it some distinctive grace or function, which brought diversity without disharmony, enrichment without Lack of proportion
Biblical Criticism - In 1678 Richard Simon, a French priest, arguing from variations in style and from the Lack of harmony in parallel passages in the Pentateuch, suggested that these books could not have been the work of Moses alone
Tomb, Grave, Sepulchre - While this may have been due in some degree to the Lack of artistic capacity in the Hebrew, it was due also to spiritual views of death, and to the dread of idolatry that had always characterized the Semitic race
Truth - Paul foretold a time when men would be guilty of all excesses, loving pleasure more than God, and, led away by divers lusts, would be ‘ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth’ (2 Timothy 3:1-7), and the same Apostle ascribed the Lack of the free expansion of truth in some people to the fact that they kept it down by their unrighteous lives (Romans 1:18)
Bible, Methods of Study - It is advisable to ask at this point the so-called journalist's questions: Who wrote, when, where, to whom, why, what for? These questions cannot be answered with the same accuracy for all parts of the Bible, since we Lack information sometimes. What could have happened if these words had not been given to Jeremiah's or James' generation? What would be Lacking if that message had not been preserved by Luke? Which details would cause us to suffer clarity or completeness in our knowledge about Jesus Christ, the church, or ethics? In so asking the interpreter will get a better glance of the specific value of the text
Bosom - The conception of Paradise, moreover, under the figure of a feast, is specially appropriate, because of the contrast it presents to the earthly condition of Lazarus as a starving beggar (Luke 7:21), just as it is in keeping with the great reversal in the positions of the two men that Dives, who on earth had ‘fared sumptuously every day’ (Luke 7:19), should now Lack even a drop of water to cool his burning tongue (Luke 7:24)
Ezekiel, Theology of - If Ezekiel's language Lacks delicacy, it is because he is trying to warn the people of the horrors soon to overtake them. The terms "Magog, " "Meshech, " and so forth refer to tribes in the Black Sea area (such as the Scythians), but the specific identity is not nearly so important as the fact that they were pagan, warlike peoples in the north. That is, they Lack many specifications and dimensions, and omit such critical matters as the materials to be used (contrast Exod. Attempts to reconstruct a picture of this temple inevitably fail for Lack of detail
Holy Spirit, Gifts of - The Lack of a second demonstrative adjective in the expression "some to be pastors and teachers" (Ephesians 4:11 ) suggests another overlap: Christian teachers ought always to exercise a pastoral role; shepherds should always communicate accurate content. Against the view that maintains, from the Lack of the more supernatural gifts throughout much of church history, that these charisms were limited to the apostolic age, three points must be noted: (1) these gifts did not end at the close of the first century, but continued well into the third; (2) their subsequent diminution can best be attributed to a growing, unscriptural institutionalization of the church and an overreaction to the abuse of the gifts in heretical (most notably Montanist) circles; (3) even then, no era of church history was completely without examples of all the gifts
Oath - But if men will not always trust him, owing to the general Lack of trustworthiness, is he or is he not to submit to this indignity (cf. 8, and Kant’s epithet ‘State blackmail’ or ‘civil extortion’ [5] in Die Religion innerhalb der Grenzen der blossen Vernunft, 1793, p. This is especially evident at 1 Corinthians 1:14-16, which, in view of the ‘I thank God,’ reveals a strange Lack of clarity; and, where the witness is himself uncertain, strong expressions of affirmation and invocation can but add to the difficulties
Hosea - God's love for Israel would not permit Him to give up on them in spite of their Lack of knowledge and infidelity
John, the Letters of - Pride, Gossiping, and Lack of Hospitality Bring Condemnation (9-10)
Unbelief - Paul denounced this practice as showing the Lack of Christian love, as bringing disgrace upon the whole Christian community, and as implying that there were none within the Christian fellowship able to settle the petty differences that had arisen
Worldliness - And no less characteristic of the worldly mind are the uneasiness and distress consequent upon the Lack of such sense of security: God-forgetting anxiety, painful and harmful as it is futile (Philippians 4:6, 1 Peter 5:7); repining over worldly losses and disappointments, the ‘sorrow of the world’ that ‘worketh death’ (2 Corinthians 7:10), reaching its climax in that sense of instability and vanity in all earthly things which, without its counterpoise of faith in spiritual reality, leads directly to the inverted worldliness of pessimism, and by rebound to cynical hedonism-‘let us eat and drink, for to-morrow we die’ (1 Corinthians 15:32)
Possession - In addition to the serious objection that such a theory introduces an unwelcome element of unreality into Christ’s teaching, and implies a Lack of candour on His part, the arguments in its favour are singularly ineffective
Sin - If sin is Lack of love for God, it is also hate or indifference toward fellow humans. Obedience that proceeds from fear of getting caught, or Lack of opportunity to act on wicked desires Lacks righteousness (Matthew 5:17-48 )
Sanctification - ...
The unsanctified state of fallen humanity is not caused merely by Lack of effort or poor motivation. ...
Human beings "fall short of God's glory" (Romans 3:23 ) because they Lack God's presence, which produces glory. They disregarded God's Word, Lacked faith in God (Hebrews 4:2 ), and became proud of their achievements
Isaac - Lack of godly and manly firmness betrayed him into the untruth
Eusebius, Bishop of Samosata - ) Basil complains bitterly of the Lack of fair dealing on the part of the Western church, and mysterious hints are not unfrequently dropped as to the sentiment entertained at Rome with reference to himself, Eusebius, and Meletius
Judgment - These are some of the tests:...
Following Him (Matthew 4:18-22; Matthew 10:38; Matthew 19:28, Mark 8:34); confessing Him (Matthew 10:32, Luke 12:8); failure to appreciate His presence and work (Matthew 11:21); failure to come to Him (John 5:40); failure to believe Him (John 3:18); failure to obey Him (John 3:36); failure to honour Him (John 5:23); failure to stand with Him (Matthew 12:30); failure of right fruitage (Matthew 21:31-42; Matthew 7:16, Luke 6:44); failure in outward conduct (Matthew 22:11-13); failure to help men (Matthew 25:31-46); failure to repent (John 5:40); failure to use the gifts of God (Matthew 25:14-30); making light of His personal invitations (Matthew 22:1-7); unwillingness to hear His words (Matthew 12:41-42); unwillingness to forgive an injury (Matthew 6:15; Matthew 18:28-30); being ashamed of Him (Mark 8:38); breaking a commandment (Matthew 5:19); the spirit of our judgment on others (Matthew 7:2); faith or Lack of it (Matthew 8:10; Matthew 9:22; Matthew 9:29; Matthew 15:28, Mark 5:34); heart unreceptive to His words (Matthew 10:14-15); hypocrisy (Matthew 23:13-36); idle words (Matthew 12:36); lip service without the heart (Matthew 15:7); selfish conceit (Matthew 6:2); wicked pride (Mark 12:38); love of darkness (John 3:19); rejection of His disciples (Luke 10:10); adultery (Matthew 19:9); commercialism in worship (Matthew 21:13); blasphemy against the Spirit (Matthew 12:31-32); loving others more than God (Matthew 10:37); hearing, seeing the Son, with belief or with failure to believe (Matthew 7:24; Matthew 13:23, John 5:24; John 6:40); the cup of cold water given to a disciple (Matthew 10:42); mercifulness (Luke 6:36); love to Christ (Luke 7:47, John 21:16); love to enemies (Luke 6:27); humble-mindedness as a child (Matthew 18:4); fidelity of service (Matthew 20:14; Matthew 24:45-51); endurance in well-doing (Matthew 24:13); doing will of God (Matthew 12:50); deeds in general (Matthew 16:27); inward thoughts and motives (Mark 7:21, Luke 5:22-23)
Poor And Poverty, Theology of - Poverty is a result of laziness (6:10-11; 10:4; 20:13; 24:33-34), Lack of discipline (13:18), idleness (14:23; 28:19), haste (21:5), excess (21:17; 23:20-21), and injustice (13:23)
Apostolic Fathers - On the other, they Lack the scientific spirit which distinguished the Fathers of the 4th and 5th cents
Genealogy - Certain families were excluded from the priesthood for Lack of the requisite genealogical records ( Ezra 2:61 , Nehemiah 7:63 )
Benedictus - But with all this, they Lack the characteristic elements of evangelical prophecy
Amen - The Lack of a common language has always been a barrier to the mutual knowledge and intercourse of the great nations of mankind, all the more that the days when the educated men of all European nations were wont to converse in Latin have long since passed away
Pride (2) - Pride also betrays a Lack of perception as to our own true position before God
Physician - The death of a patient was attributed to his Lack of confidence. (1) He followed Empedokles in holding to the four elements and the four conditions, but added the four humours-black bile, yellow bile, blood, and phlegm. They were, however, handicapped by Lack of anatomical and physiological knowledge
Mercy, Merciful - ...
Racham is also used to describe human mercy or Lack of it
Discipline - ’ In their case the need is the more urgent, for latent powers must be developed, Lack of symmetry corrected, the stains of sin removed, evil tendencies eradicated
Elisha - The old men who had not had great success themselves did not cast up Elisha's youth to him when his success began, nor did the sons of the prophets keep up against him his humble origin, or his Lack of letters
Turning - Similarly, when our Lord says to Peter, ‘When once thou hast turned again (Authorized Version ‘When thou art converted’), stablish thy brethren’ (Luke 22:32), it seems evident that the Apostle did not Lack conversion in the technical meaning of the word, but that he was being summoned beforehand to a fresh and more devoted return to his Master’s service after his fall. And for Lack of a reasoned and definite theory, or even of a careful study of the NT teaching, the figure of regeneration has very commonly been overworked, while the moral side of the change involved in becoming a Christian has been neglected
Sexuality, Human - The combination of these two factors, the organismic and the imago Dei, brought about a Lack of stratification in Hebraic law when compared with other laws of the ancient Near East. The help for Adam would therefore designate "that which is Lacking, necessary for completion" that "helps" Adam become, not simply the male of the species, but a legitimate microcosm of the human race. This interpretation does not do exegetical justice to the narrative, for the loneliness described in 2:18-20 would be incomprehensible for a sexually undifferentiated creature unaware that he/she was Lacking a sexual counterpart. If she concealed her Lack of virginity in order to get a husband or a higher bride-price, she could be tried and, if found guilty, executed (Deuteronomy 22:13-21 )
Gnosticism - Strange combinations resulted, and were dissolved again for Lack of something round which they might crystallize. In view of the Lack of definite information, any attempt to trace or reconstruct its actual history must be made with diffidence
Hellenism - By indulging in this practice, writers acknowledge their own Lack of authority and originality. Here again the Lack of originality makes itself conspicuous by the fact that recent products appear either under old names or as commentaries on old books
Ascension (2) - Physically, the Ascension meant a complete change of conditions, the passing into a mode of existence having no longer direct physical relations with our ordinary experience, whither we cannot follow by the exercise of our sensitive intelligence, and which in our Lack of material for comparison we cannot even imaginatively picture. It possesses an inevitableness, a conscious connexion with previous conditions, a naturalness as another and new aspect of Jesus’ life yet continuous with and necessarily complementary to it, which they all alike Lack. It Lacks their formality, spectacular effect, incoherence with real life
David - ...
Within the larger DH, the writer is concerned to trace the faithfulness of God in his promise to David that he would never Lack a descendant sitting on this throne (2 Samuel 7 )

Liberty - Nor did he Lack the true Jew’s veneration for the Torah
Seventy (2) - ]'>[8] and others, owing to (1) the silence of the other Gospels regarding it; (2) the Lack of later authentic trace of the Seventy; the close resemblance between the mission of the Seventy and that of the Twelve, being suggestive, it is argued, of confusion

Crimes And Punishments - The practice of magic , wizardry, and similar black arts, exposes their adepts and those who resort to them to the same penalty (H 161854058939 DEU 20:27). In the penal code of the Hebrews there is a comparative Lack of what may be termed intermediate penalties

Majesty (2) - ...
(b) Was there no majesty, then, in His personal appearance? The Gospels are completely silent on this point, and in the Lack of any trustworthy tradition the Fathers seem to have fallen back chiefly on the prophetic pictures of the Messiah, with the result that a wide diversity of view came to exist, according as one passage or another was taken as the norm
Epicureans - His reputed Lack of style may have contributed to the same end
Joel, Book of - ( c ) The alleged Lack of originality in the second part, in so far as it exists, can bereasonably accounted for by its apocalyptic character
Covenant - Other scholars, who accept Genesis as a record of Yahweh's revelation, also have difficulty accepting that God established his covenant when he created the cosmos mainly because of the Lack of direct verbal reference to it. Implied in these stipulations was Yahweh's awareness of Abram's Lack of faith and obedience in his sovereign, exalted God and of his sin of adultery with Hagar
Transportation And Travel - ...
The rough coastline of Palestine Lacked a good, deep-water port for shipping. Despite this activity, Israel's kings had a general Lack of experience with the sea
Revelation, Book of - Such a view is, however, open to serious objections, because of the similarities, if not identities, existing between Revelation and other apocalyptic literature of the period, as well as because of the evidences of composite character of the writing, implying sources of different origins and dates, such as the various breaks in the process of the vision (the Lack of any single historical point of view is seen by a comparison of Revelation 12:3 ; Revelation 13:1 ; Revelation 17:3 , in an effort to identify historically the two breaks, or in a comparison of Revelation 11:1-13 with Revelation 17:11 )
Children (Sons) of God - It is the appeal of Christ to His disciples against hypocrisy, unforgivingness, Lack of faith ( Matthew 6:1 ; Matthew 6:15 ; Matthew 6:26 ); it stands as symbol of the Divine providence, forgiveness, redemption in a word, of the Divine love ( Luke 6:36 ; Luke 11:13 , Mark 11:25 ), and hence it gives the ground and manner of all access to God, ‘Whensoever ye pray, say, Father’ ( Luke 11:2 )
Numbers, the Book of - , Numbers 14:11-25; Numbers 14:38-39), repetitions, and Lack of consecutiveness, are observed
Unconscious Faith - Paul is not so deeply moved by the thought of a secret kept out of sight in the Divine counsels, while for ages men were being destroyed for Lack of knowledge, and only disclosed at the last
Revelation, Idea of - The sheer abundance of the speech of God in the canonical texts may actually help explain the Lack of attention that has been paid to this very remarkable fact, which is surely the most evident of all phenomena in the canon
Thessalonians, First And Second, Theology of - But Paul does use the sleep idea here to call them from a Lack of involvement to authentic life while they are still alive on earth (cf
Kenosis - When Jesus Himself thus confesses ignorance in a matter affecting Himself so closely, it is not reverence to claim for Him universal knowledge regarding such matters as the date and authorship of Old Testament writings, the causes of disease, the course of events in the remote future; nor is it any Lack of homage and devotion to acknowledge the other evidences of limitation of knowledge the Gospels offer
the Samaritan Who Shewed Mercy - When a beggar at one of our road-sides sees a minister coming along with his black clothes and his white neckcloth, the poor wretch feels sure that he will not be passed by this time without a kind word at any rate. A kind thought, a kind look, a kind word, a kind deed; carry about that oil and that wine with you, and you will not Lack wounded and half-dead men and women to bless the day on which they first saw your face and heard your voice
Claims (of Christ) - There is nothing which gives a man such sway over the consciences of other men as the possession of true holiness; while there is nothing more certain to be found out than the Lack of this quality in one who professes to have it

Birds - ...
Raven The raven, conspicuous because of its black color (Song of Song of Solomon 5:11 ), is a member of the crow family. Lack of a proper burial was viewed as a great horror in biblical times

Obedience (2) - To those of another race and time He may seem to have been Lacking on one occasion in respect for His mother, viz. ’ The whole Gospel story is displayed, as it were, upon the black background of the darkness and sufferings of Calvary. Such a person might conceivably err as to duty in some specific case, because of Lack of enlightenment, but if he has the spirit of obedience, he has substantially obeyed
Sin - If in the case of Abraham ‘faith was reckoned for righteousness’ ( Romans 4:9 ), and belief in the fidelity of God’s promises, in the face of the most untoward conditions, constituted the foundation-stone of the patriarch’s noble character, so in Esau’s case it was the Lack of this belief, with the consequent inability to appreciate the dignity to which he was born, that lay at the root of his great and pathetic failure

Matthew, Gospel According to - For Lack of external information as to the First Gospel, we are driven to internal evidence
Eschatology - Our Lack of literary sources, however, forbids any detailed presentation of the content of their expectation beyond a reference to the central position given to the coming day of the Christ’s Judgment.

Dress - As regards the particular articles of dress, the identification of these is in many cases rendered almost impossible for the English reader by the curious Lack of consistency in the renderings of the translators, illustrations of which will be met with again and again in this article. Now on the black obelisk of Shalmaneser, the bearers of Jehu’s tribute, nobles of Samaria doubtless, are represented wearing over their tunics a similar fringed and sleeveless garment, open at the sides, and resembling, if not identical with, the upper garment of Assyrian kings and dignitaries of state, which may with some confidence be identified with the me‘îl
Peter, Second Epistle of - They are (1) the remarkable divergence from the First Epistle, which seems to be too radical to be explained by the employment of different amanuenses; (2) the inferior style of the Epistle, its Lack of restraint and its discontinuity, notably in 2 Peter 1:12-21 and ch

Rivers And Waterways in the Bible - ...

The unusually straight coast along the south portion of its eastern shoreline and the Lack of natural coves and harbor facilities limited Israelite opportunities for direct involvement in Mediterranean maritime commerce. In the north and east, the Black Sea, the Caspian Sea, and the Persian Gulf with the mountain ranges that linked them basically formed the limits of the biblical world
Ethics - The prophets called constantly for justice; they condemned perjury and bribery, the selfish luxury of women, the scarcity of upright men, the Lack of trust between neighbors through lies, deceitfulness, and fraud, as people preferred lies to truth and nourished "the lie within the soul. Such moral counsel Lacks permanence, authority, and motive power
Immorality, Sexual - The prophets use the term figuratively to describe the covenant people's Lack of fidelity to the high ideals of Mount Sinai

Jeremiah, Theology of - Prophets Lack integrity; they commit adultery
Justification - Its weakest features are the idea of faith, which is limited to belief and trust in Christ’s satisfaction, apart from subjective appropriation of its experience through the indwelling Christ which faith makes possible, and the resulting unbridged chasm between justification and sanctification; and the Lack of any really vital relation between the new status and the new character of the justified. Ethnic faiths for the most part are so Lacking in belief in a personal God that the inquiry hardly anywhere attains more than rudimentary shape
Elect, Election - In spite of many disappointing experiences, He was again and again amazed at the Lack of faith and spiritual insight amongst ‘Israelites’ (Matthew 8:10 = Luke 7:9; John 3:10, cf

Esau - OR PROFANE PERSON...
ESAU lost his birthright with all its blessings largely through his Lack of imagination. Burned black with the sun; beaten hard and dry with the wind; a prince of men; a prime favourite both with men, and women, and children, and with a good word and a good gift from the field for them all

Israel, History of - In many ways, Micah seemed to Lack the original spirit of the other eighth century prophets
Ships, Sailors, And Navigation - In water free from rocks, such as the Nile delta where adequate materials for branch frames were Lacking, clay tublike boats made their appearance. Such ideal conditions that obviously contributed to the development of water travel and transport unfortunately were offset by a Lack of lumber. Maritime ventures included royal and private efforts at supplying metals, timber, and luxury items the Mesopotamian economy Lacked. Their primary challenge came from the Greek world where merchantmen and war vessels controlled the northern Mediterranean shoreline and the Black Sea
James Epistle of - Again, ‘that ye may be perfect, Lacking nothing (James 1:4). And if any Lack wisdom [3], let him ask … (James 1:5), but let him ask in faith’ (James 1:5). In James 1:5 we want a connexion between ‘wisdom,’ which appears unexpectedly, and the ideas of ‘perfect’ and ‘lacking’; and this certainly seems to be supplied by Wisdom of Solomon 9:6 : ‘For even if a man be perfect among the sons of men, yet if the wisdom that cometh from thee be not with him, he shall be held in no account
Logia - It accounts for the incompleteness and Lack of system in Mk
Pharaoh - Poor, misguided crown-prince, when he was still the crown-prince! His tutors and his governors had destroyed their royal charge for Lack of knowledge
Dependence - The Lack of sympathy has a marked effect on the power of His ministrations (‘And he could there do no mighty work,’ Mark 6:5), and He recognizes that, in certain cases at least, the exercise of His power of miraculous healing may be marred or promoted by the absence or presence of a sympathetic trust on the part of those with whom He is dealing (‘All things are possible to him that believeth,’ Mark 9:23, see Matthew 9:28 f. Paul, which emphasize this side of a mysterious truth—‘Now I … fill up on my part that which is Lacking of the afflictions of Christ in my flesh for His body’s sake, which is the Church’ (Colossians 1:24, cf
Christian Life - The peril was shrinking from confession of Christ, a failure of παῤῥησία (Hebrews 10:19), their Lack of Christian knowledge (Hebrews 6:1); on the other hand, good works are praised (Hebrews 6:10)-brotherly love, hospitality, care for the sick and imprisoned; the great need is πίστις, not intellectual belief, but the moral assurance of a future reward-‘a better country
Woman - At least they have traditionally been so taken, throughout almost all of church history, corresponding to the general Lack of women in the highest or most authoritative positions of ecclesial office (even as women's roles in all other positions of leadership have been more plentiful than the average textbook of church history discloses)
Evil - It may refer to doing away with the fear of God (Job 15:4-5 ) or a Lack of steadfastness toward him (Psalm 78:37-38 ) and it functions to alienate the individual from God (Leviticus 26:40 ; Isaiah 59:4 )
Sanctify, Sanctification - The character that Lacks this devoted love for the heavenly Father is fatally defective. Jesus also inculcated the supreme importance of love by His rebukes of its opposites: of Lack of compassion (Matthew 18:23-35, Luke 10); of selfishness (Luke 16:19-31); of inhumanity (Matthew 25:41-45)

Barnabas, Epistle of - are tolerably numerous, but the fact that, except the Sinaiticus (א ), which deserves separate mention, they all Lack exactly the same portion of the epistle, the first five and a half chapters, seems to shew that they had been taken from a common source and cannot be reckoned as independent witnesses
Prayer - "If any man Lack wisdom, let him ask of God, who giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not, and it shall be given him
Peter, First Epistle of - The chief objections to the Petrine authorship are (1) the Epistle is said to be so saturated with Pauline ideas that it could not have been written by the Apostle Peter; (2) the readers are Gentile Christians living within territory evangelized by Paul, in which Peter would have been trespassing on the Gentiles ( Galatians 2:9 ); (3) there is a Lack of personal reminiscences of the life of Jesus that would be strange in Peter; (4) the use of good Greek and of the LXX Education in Bible Times - Often the covenant or treaty concluded with the promise of blessings or curses conditioned by Israel's obedience (or Lack thereof) to the specific covenant stipulations. ...

Herod - ...

Marriage - Not only is the bride arrayed in ‘fine linen, bright and pure’ (Revelation 19:8), but each guest wears a wedding garment (ἔνδυμα γάμου, Matthew 22:11); the Lack of it is an insult, whether or not we are to suppose a reference to the custom of giving garments as presents by kings and great men in the East (so Edersheim, Trench)-and refusing a gift is ever a sign of contempt (cf
Jesus Christ - The assault against man's threefold nature, the body (the Lack of bread), the soul (craving for worldly lordship without the cross), and the spirit (the temptation on the temple pinnacle), failed in His case
Priest (2) - Does it not betoken a Lack of spiritual perception to demand that Christ should always be doing something? Why may we not be content with the thought that He is there, and that in His presence above is the secret of peace, the assurance of access, and the guarantee of permanent relation with God? It is just at this point that one essential difference between type and antitype is noticed
David - Moreover, he did not Lack those outward graces which were looked for in a king; "ruddy," i. with auburn hair, esteemed to be a beauty in the South and East, where black hair is usual; with "bright eyes" (margin, 1 Samuel 16:12; 1 Samuel 16:18); goodly in countenance, and comely in person (1 Samuel 17:42); besides being "mighty, valiant, a man of war," and altogether "prudent. ...
How striking a retribution by the righteous God it was, that Saul himself fell by the very enemy by whom he hoped to kill David! How evidently this and kindred cases must have been in David's mind when he wrote of the sinner, "he made a pit and digged it, and is fallen into the ditch which he made" (Psalms 7:15-16); the title of this psalm probably refers to Saul, the black-hearted son of Kish the Benjamite, enigmatically glanced at as "Cush (Ethiopia; compare Jeremiah 13:23; Amos 9:7) the Benjamite
Romans Epistle to the - 226), ‘there is no Lack of analogies for a letter of recommendation plunging at once in medias res and beginning with “I commend
Trial of Jesus - ]'>[1] and the Lack of any outside testimony occasionally prevent criticism from throwing a steady ray of light upon the exact course of affairs, and this is particularly the case with regard to the first two classes of the trial-problems. , is content to record the painful story without pointing a moral or adorning the tale; he does not stop or step aside to blacken Judas or Herod, as Thucydides has exposed Cleon and Hyperbolus, or as many subsequent writers in Christianity have treated the Jewish and Roman actors in the Passion-story. The high priest who rent his garments when the words were pronounced which, according to all the ideas of his country, constituted the blackest guilt, was in all probability quite as sincere in his horror and indignation as the generality of respectable and pious men now are in the religious and moral sentiments they profess. Mill forgets, too, that some of the blackest crimes of history have been connived at, if not started, by men of quite respectable character
Corinthians, First Epistle to the - ), and shows that the Israelites, in spite of all their privileges, fell from Lack of this self-discipline
Offerings And Sacrifices - A better explanation is that the Lack of descriptive terms such as "firstfruits" for Cain's offering is conspicuous for its absence in light of the description of Abel's offering as "fat portions" and "firstborn" (Genesis 4:3b-4 a)
Hebrews Epistle to the - They were conscious also of its Lack of outward aids to faith and worship. The Levitical service of the old covenant was not Lacking in outward splendour, but its magnificence served only to emphasize its ineffectiveness
John the Baptist - But when we put together all the references to John’s ministry and history and character which we find either in the form of historical narrative, or testimony from the lips of Jesus, or reflexion on the part of an Evangelist, and when we make use besides of one or two sidelights which fall from the book of Acts and the pages of Josephus, we find that for knowledge regarding the Baptist’s mission, his character, his relation to Jesus Christ, and his place in the history of both the old and the new dispensations, we are in no Lack of plentiful and trustworthy sources of information
Son of God - It seems to be strangely forgotten in many quarters that ethical intimacy is, in all cases, limited by the closeness of metaphysical relationship; the limitation of the intimacy between a dog and a man, for example, is due to the Lack of metaphysical unity between them, whereas the closeness of sympathy and intimacy possible between a woman and a man is due to their metaphysical oneness
Hermas Shepherd of - She tells Hermas that what God is really wroth about is his Lack of strictness with his family whereby his children have become corrupt. Its length is about a hundred feet, and its head was as it were of pottery, coloured black, fire and blood-colour, gold and white.

The two centers of eruption were:...
(1) The older about Kuru Hattin, the traditional mount of beatitudes, from whence the lava flowed forming the cliffs at the back of Tiberius; the disintegration of the basalt formed the fertile black soil of the plain of Gennesaret. It is loamy sand, red or black, formed of sandstone disintegrated by the waves and cast on the shore, or, as Josephus ( Old Testament (i. Christ as Fulfilment of) - There was a Lack of insight into the nature of their own religion, and an incapacity to live anywhere except on the surface of things
Omnipresence - If we could penetrate into the realm of ontology, doubtless God is somewhat which infinitely transcends our thought, but what that is we Lack the capacity even to imagine. ’ The genuineness of this passage has been denied, not because it is Lacking in any Greek Manuscripts , but for a priori reasons
Personality - ’ But the greatest hindrance to the full emergence of personality is not so much the Lack of outward respect as the loss of self-respect through sin

Atonement - ...
To complete the material provided for the apostolic doctrine in the Synoptics there should be added to the points already mentioned the minuteness and wealth of detail-quite without parallel in the presentation of other important features of His life-with which the death of Jesus is recorded, and also the extent to which the writers insist upon the event as a fulfilment of the OT Scriptures We have, therefore, in the Synoptics, whatever view may be taken of the position largely held, that they were the issue of ‘the productive activity’ of the early Church under the stimulating influence of redemptive experiences attributed to the death of Christ, at least the starting-point of the ethical and juridical views of the atonement subsequently developed in the primitive community; they Lack doctrinal definiteness, and distinctly favour the ethical more than the legal view of the process of redemption; they are also accompanied by evidences that the disciples listened unintelligently or with reluctant acquiescence to the words of Jesus concerning His death
Sinlessness - In cursing the fig-tree, it is claimed, He gave way to temper; and, in the casting of the demons out of the possessed man of Gadara and giving them permission to enter the swine, with the result that two thousand of these were lost to their owners, He displayed a Lack of respect for the rights of property
Messiah - In the Book of Jubilees the Messianic hope is all but Lacking.

Education - But there was no Lack of materials for reading and exposition
Clement of Rome, Epistle of - ’ (b) Apology for apparent Lack of interest in the Corinthian trouble. ...
Yet we must never be slack in works. The one element which is Lacking is the mysticism of St
Dates (2) - The difficulties in the way of forming an exact time-table of the dates in the Gospels are due (1) to the indifference of the early Christians, as citizens of the heavenly city, to the great events that were taking place in the world around them; (2) to their Lack of means of ascertaining these events, and their obliviousness of the important bearing they might have on the evidences of the faith; (3) to the fact that, the early Christian traditions being recorded in the interest of religion and not of history, the writers confined their attention to a few events, which were arranged as much according to subject-matter as to time sequence. 11), made out by the emperor himself, especially as Varus was slack, and inclined to favour Archelaus
Freedom of the Will - Such a view lays every pantheist open to one retort: if God is substance, or the All, and therefore universally immanent, how can union with Him be a thing which the soul may possess or Lack? Spinoza does not attempt to grapple with this difficulty

Hieronymus, Eusebius (Jerome) Saint - "I sat alone; I was filled with bitterness: my limbs were uncomely and rough with sackcloth, and my squalid skin became as black as an Ethiopian's. These invasions caused great Lack of means at Bethlehem (cxiv

Chrysostom, John, Bishop of Constantinople - His disciplinary measures were rendered more unpopular by his Lack of a conciliatory manner, coupled with irritability of temper and no small obstinacy (Socr
Person of Christ - We do not need to defend Him against the charge of harsh judgment ( Matthew 12:34 ), or a Lack of family affection ( Matthew 12:48 ), or an excess of passion ( Matthew 21:12 ); these, surely, are intelligible manifestations of fidelity to His Messianic task, and it has been fitly said that their final justification is that such a one as He should have done such things without any subsequent regret
Odes of Solomon - So far as the text is concerned, few amendments worth noticing have been suggested, and the very few linguistic difficulties that the original offers will remain for a long time insoluble, owing to the scarcity of Manuscripts and the Lack of exact Patristic quotations
Julianus, Flavius Claudius, Emperor - Here for six years they were kept under surveillance, with no Lack of material comforts, but apart from young men of their own age and with only the society of their slaves (Greg
Nestorius And Nestorianism - Socrates does not conceal his sense of Cyril's unfairness toward Nestorius, strongly as he animadverts on the Lack of judgment and self-control displayed by the latter
Originality - He merely invents this fictitious Gospel to supply the Lack of historical connexion between Buddhism and Christianity, the want of which is one of the strongest objections to his theory
Palestine - The whole Gospel shows traces of this Lack of privacy, and the emphasis of its teachings is often fixed by the angle at which its detail was seen by the onlookers.
