1910 New Catholic Dictionary - Sentence
(Latin: sententia, judgment)
In canon law the decision of the court upon any issue brought before it. Canon law, as opposed to civil,draws a unique distinction between penalties inflicted latae sententiae and ferendae sententiae, two expressions indicating the manner in which guilt is declared and a penalty contracted. A penalty given latae sententiae is one attached by law to the mere fact of commission of a crime, or violation of a law or precept. It calls for no intervention of an ecclesiastical judge or superior. On the other hand, a penalty ferendae sententiae is one imposed by a judge or superior. The Church resorts to penalties latae sententiae simply because her field of action embraces the conscience of man as well as his external life. Penalties are never cohsidered to be latae sententiae unless explicitly expressed in the law. The present legislation restricts the practise of imposing penalties latae sententiae by first demanding, in many cases, a declaratory sentence. In doubt, punishments are to be presumed to be ferendae sententiae.
King James Dictionary - Sentence

Let him be sent out lome of Luther's works, that by them we may pass sentence upon his doctrines. Atterbury.
3. An opinion judgement concerning a controverted point. 4. A maxim an axiom a short saying containing moral instruction. 5. Vindication of one's innocence. 6. In grammar, a period a number of words containing a complete sense or sentiment, and followed by a full pause. Sentences are simple or compound.

Caiaphas - The depositions of certain false witnesses being insufficient to justify a Sentence of death against him, and Jesus continuing silent, Caiaphas, as high priest, said to him, "I adjure thee by the living God, that thou tell us whether thou art the Christ, the Son of God!" To this adjuration, so solemnly made by the superior judge, Jesus answered, "Thou hast said; nevertheless I say unto you, Hereafter shall ye see the Son of man sitting on the right hand of power, and coming in the clouds of heaven. " And as the power of life and death was not at this time in their hands, but was reserved by the Romans, they conducted him to Pilate, that he might confirm their Sentence, and order his execution

Excommunication - The State has power to send into exile, to deprive of civil rights, and even claims and exercises the power to inflict a death-sentence. So, in spiritual matters, the Church may pass Sentences of separation more or less complete, and though the supreme judge alone can pronounce the Sentence of death in an absolute sense, yet the Church can pass such a Sentence in a relative sense-the offender being regarded as dead from the standpoint of the ecclesiastical court. The Sentence might be pronounced on twenty-four different grounds. Only as a last resort, and when all else has failed, must the Sentence of banishment be pronounced (see Matthew 13:24-30; Matthew 13:36-43; Matthew 13:47-50). The Sentence might be modified or rescinded according to sub-sequent events (2 Corinthians 2:6-8).

The committee having reported that they still adhered to their protest, the assembly ordered them to appear before the commission in August following, and retract their protest; and, if they should not comply and testify their sorrow for their conduct, the commission was empowered to suspend them from the exercise of their ministry, with certification that, if they should act contrary to the said Sentence, the commission should proceed to an higher censure. From this Sentence several ministers and elders, members of the commission, dissented. The synods of Galloway and Fife, as also the presbytery of Dornoch, addressed the commission for lenity, tenderness, and forbearance towards the suspended ministers; and the presbytery of Aberdeen represented, that, in their judgment, the Sentence of suspension inflicted on the aforesaid ministers was too high, and that it was a stretch of ecclesiastical authority. Many members of the commission reasoned in the same manner, and alleged, that the act and Sentence of last assembly did not obliged them to proceed to a higher censure at this meeting of the commission. And the commission do declare the churches of the said ministers vacant from and after the date of this Sentence.

Thomas Narin, minister at Abbotshall, protested against the Sentence of the commission, and that it should be lawful for them to complain of it to any subsequent general assembly of the church. They believe that the holy Scriptures are the sole criterion of truth, and the only rule to direct mankind to glorify and enjoy God, the chief and eternal good; and that "the supreme Judge, by which all controversies of religion are to be determined, and all the decrees of councils, opinions of ancient writers, doctrines of men and private spirits, are to be examined, and in whose Sentence we are to rest, can be no other but the Holy Spirit speaking in the Scriptures

Nahum 1:10 , Nahum 2:8 ), but the cause is probably quite as often the high specific gravity of the Sentence as an error in transcription
Stoning - ...
The method which an enraged crowd took of executing vengeance with the weapons lying readiest to their hand came to be employed afterwards as a regular and legal method of inflicting the death-sentence on a criminal. These were intended to secure (1) that the condemned person should have every opportunity of obtaining a reversal of his Sentence on the way to execution, by the production by himself or others of fresh evidence in his favour; (2) that his sufferings should be shortened as much as was possible in the circumstances. After Sentence was pronounced, the criminal, in the absence of further evidence sufficient to establish his innocence, was preceded by a herald or crier, whose function it was to announce, in terms of a prescribed formula, the name and parentage of the offender, and the nature of his offence, together with the names of the witnesses

Trial of Jesus - Taylor Innes, sums up his inquiry in the words: ‘A process,’ begun, continued, and apparently finished in the course of one night, commencing with witnesses against the accused who were sought for by the Judges, but whose evidence was not sustained even by them; continuing by interrogations which Hebrew law does not sanction; and ending with a demand for confession which its doctors expressly forbid; all followed, twenty-four hours too soon, by a Sentence which described a claim to be the fulfiller of the hopes of Israel as blasphemy—such a process had neither the form nor the fairness of a judicial trial. It was necessary for the Jewish authorities to obtain the governor’s sanction for the execution of the death Sentence, and this involved a fresh trial of the accused. When he gave Him up to be crucified, it was against his better judgment, and in ratification of a previous Sentence pronounced by the Jewish Council. At daybreak an adjourned meeting was held, at which He was formally bound (the Sentence perhaps being ratified) and handed over to Pilate’s jurisdiction. Even the Markan tradition includes a morning examination (Mark 15:1 = Matthew 27:1, a full and formal meeting of the court), which, after the nocturnal one, would be no more than a closing deliberation or a hasty ratification of the Sentence already passed. As the ex-high priest had no power to pronounce Sentence, the tendency of tradition would naturally be towards the decisive proceedings before Caiaphas

Joannes, Bishop of Antioch - Mary the Virgin, and in one day Nestorius was tried, condemned, Sentenced, deposed, and excommunicated. 663), the small synod—the "conciliabulum" their enemies tauntingly called it—of 43 bishops, passed a Sentence of deposition on Cyril and Memnon, bp. The Sentences of excommunication and deposition were posted up in the city. ) to explain the tardiness of John's arrival and to justify the Sentence pronounced on Cyril, Memnon, and the other bishops. , John summoned a very numerously attended council of bishops, which pronounced a fresh Sentence against Cyril and wrote to Theodosius, calling upon him to take measures for the general condemnation of the doctrines of Cyril, as contrary to the Nicene faith which they were resolved to maintain to the death (Socr. Cyril then required acceptance of the deposition of Nestorius, recognition of Maximian, and acquiescence in the Sentence passed by him on the four metropolitans deposed as Nestorians; terms acceded to by Paul. All reproaches were silenced, and as John did not insist on his accepting Sentence against Nestorius, he embraced concordat, and returned to communion with John and Cyril (ib
Hegesippus, Father of Church History - But these words seem simply to mean that the games had been instituted in his own time, thus illustrating the μέχρι νῦν of the preceding Sentence. We may be permitted to doubt, however, whether the Sentence thus referred to was carried out, for not only was it unlawful for the Sanhedrin to punish by death without consent of the Roman authorities, but Josephus informs us immediately after that the charge of the citizens against Ananus was, that it was not lawful for him to assemble a Sanhedrin without the procurator's assent, nothing being said of the stoning to death
Dioscorus (1), Patriarch of Alexandria - Presently came a Sentence in which Basil of Seleucia had denounced the denial of two natures after the incarnation as equivalent to the assertion of a commixture and a fusion. Dioscorus called in some secretaries, who brought forward a draft Sentence of deposition against Flavian and Eusebius, on the ground that the Ephesian council had enacted severe penalties against any who should frame or propose any other creed than the Nicene. He peremptorily commanded the bishops to sign the Sentence, and with a fierce gesture of the hand exclaimed, "He that does not choose to sign must reckon with me . 68) who accompanied Barsumas, until they put their names to a blank paper on which the Sentence was to be written (ib. 976, 1041), was a provisional Sentence, to be further considered by the council. It was received with applause, "A just Sentence! Christ has deposed Dioscorus! God has vindicated the martyrs!" The magistrates desired that each bishop should give in a carefully framed statement of belief conformable to the Nicene "exposition," to that of the 150 Fathers (of Constantinople, in 381), to the canonical epistles and expositions of the Fathers, Gregory, Basil, Athanasius, Hilary, Ambrose, and Cyril's two canonical epistles published and confirmed in the first Ephesian council, adding that Leo had written a letter to Flavian against Eutyches.

Flavianus (16), Bishop of Antioch - This exasperated Anastasius, who readily acceded to the request of Xenaias and Soterichus that a council should be convened, ostensibly for the more precise declaration of the faith on the points at issue, but really to depose Flavian and Elias of Jerusalem; but it was broken up by the emperor's mandate, to the extreme vexation of Soterichus and Xenaias, without pronouncing any Sentence (Labbe, Concil

Judgment was pronounced orally in the presence of both parties, and immediate effect was given to the Sentence. Even after Sentence of death was finally passed, the court remained sitting, to receive any evidence that might yet be brought in the criminal’s favour; and he would be recalled, at a given signal, from the very place of execution (v. Appeal to the people against the death Sentence (provocatio ad populum) was allowed as a right from the first year of the Republic; thus criminal cases came more and more to be tried directly before the comitia populi. The case against the accused was formally presented by the magistrate; defence was made in person, or by friends of the accused (the assistance of advocates being permitted in the later period of the Republic); witnesses were heard and examined as in civil suits; the comitia then voted as in the regular legislative proceedings of the assembly, and Sentence was pronounced by the magistrate in terms of the vote. A verdict of ‘not proven’ (non liquet) resulted in a re-hearing of the case; but no appeal was allowed against a clear verdict (except on technical points), though Sentence might be reversed through a subsequent decision of quaestio or people (in integrum restitutio)
Justice - He was not only the final authority to whom the members of a family appealed when questions of right and wrong had to be decided, and to whose Sentence they had to submit, but he also had the power of pronouncing even the death penalty (see Genesis 38:24 ). It is a more developed form of tribal justice that we read of in Deuteronomy 21:18-21 ; here the father of a rebellious son, finding his authority set at nought, appeals to the ‘elders of the city’; in the case of being found guilty the death-sentence is pronounced against the son, and the Sentence is carried out by representatives of the community
Eusebius, Bishop of Dorylaeum - The crucial question he put to Eutyches was: "My lord archimandrite, do you confess two natures after the Incarnation, and do you say that Christ is consubstantial with us according to the flesh or not?" To the first part Eutyches would not assent; he was condemned by all the bishops, and Sentence of deposition was passed.

Genesis, Book of - ) The theory of Moses having copied from various documents, is carried all through the Pentateuch, and with many it has issued in the very sad result of undermining the inspiration of scripture, and attributing to the Lord, when He speaks of Moses having written the law, the use of the common tradition though it was not true!...
Sin soon came in, and man, after hiding himself from God, was under Sentence of death, and was driven out of Eden lest he should eat of the tree of life and live for ever in his sin

Alexandrians - ...
Grammatically the Sentence is not in good form, and admits of a variety of interpretations
Excommunication - In this latter case, however, the Sentence seldom went farther than the interdiction of correspondence with these churches, or of spiritual communication between their respective pastors. It was not, however, till churchmen began to unite temporal with spiritual power, that any penal effects of a civil kind became consequent on their Sentences of excommunication; and that this ghostly artillery was not less frequently employed for the purposes of lawless ambition and ecclesiastical domination, than for the just punishment of impenitent delinquents, and the general edification of the faithful

Lord's Supper (ii) - ’ The word ‘this’ is the subject of the Sentence. ’ In the Aramaic Sentence which our Lord spoke, the predication was probably expressed simply by the juxtaposition of the subject and the predicate without any copula. Either the Greek copula, as used in the record which we possess, or the juxtaposition in the Aramaic Sentence which it probably represents, denotes that the subject (‘this,’ i. The interpretation of the Sentence then depends on the sense in which the word ‘body’ is to be understood. ’ The interpretation of these Sentences turns on three words: (i. ) The Sentence ‘This cup is the new covenant in my blood,’ while recalling the phraseology and promise of Jeremiah 31:31-34, inevitably suggests a comparison with Exodus 24:1-11. In the Sentences ‘This cup is the new covenant in my blood: this do, as oft as ye drink it, as my memorial,’ then, our Lord associated with the command for the observance of the rite which He instituted, indications that by means of it Christians would have access to His high-priestly work on the cross and in heaven, and would possess a memorial before God and a memento to themselves
Guilt (2) - The unquenchable fire is not merely the automatic result of sin bringing forth death, but punishment inflicted by judicial Sentence (Mark 9:43; Mark 9:48, Matthew 25:41). Death is not so much its consequence as its punishment or wages (Romans 5:12, Romans 6:23), not following automatically, but inflicted by the Sentence of an offended God (Romans 1:18, Ephesians 5:6, Colossians 3:6). Its effect in the broadest view is a reversal of the Sentence of condemnation (Romans 8:1) and reconciliation with God (Romans 5:10, 2 Corinthians 5:18-20). And guilt is implied in the remarkable Sentence ‘all have sinned,’ which interprets the statement that ‘through one man sin entered
Scribes - ...
Translated Isaiah 53:8, "He was taken away by oppression and by a judicial Sentence," i. by an oppressive Sentence; Acts 8:33, "in His humiliation His judgment was taken away," i
Euphemius, Patriarch of Constantinople - It seems also that Euphemius spoke of those who had been baptized and ordained by Acacius since the Sentence pronounced against him at Rome, and pointed out how embarrassing it would be if the memory of Acacius must be condemned (Ceillier, x. Elias, metropolitan of Jerusalem, himself afterwards expelled from his see by Anastasius, stood stoutly by Euphemius at the time of his exile, declaring against the legality of his Sentence (Cyrillus, Vita S
Ignatius, Bishop of Antioch - One Sentence from Smyr . 598) quotes, without naming Ignatius, the familiar Sentence from ad Eph. to be conceivably successful in such a movement) for the remission of a Sentence already delivered. 200) that prayer to God for his martyrdom, or abstinence from prayer against it, is what he asks of the Romans seems quite inadmissible, and we could not conceive him so assured of the approach of death if the Sentence had not been already pronounced. The right of appeal to the emperor was recognized, and could be made without the consent of the criminal, but not if the Sentence had proceeded from the emperor himself. He speaks of the death of Ignatius, knowing that the Sentence in Antioch made it certain; probably knowing also the date of the games at which he was to die
Coelestinus, Commonly Called Celestine, b.p. of Rome - " It will be natural to consider next Celestine's proceedings in regard to Ireland, which, says Prosper, in the same Sentence, he "made Christian.

Helladius, Bishop of Tarsus - 164), but the latter convoked the bishops of his province, whose synodical letters to Theodosius declared their complete acceptance of all required of them: admission of the decrees of the council of Ephesus, communion with Cyril, the ratification of Nestorius's Sentence of deposition, and the anathematization of him and his adherents ( ib

Philadelphia - The Jews of Philadelphia, enraged apparently at the conversion, which they regarded as the perversion, of some of their number, displayed a more than ordinary malignity in their efforts to crush the infant Church, making free use of their most formidable weapon, the hçrem or Sentence of excommunication, by which they thought to shut not only the door of the synagogue but the gate of the Kingdom of Heaven against the apostates
Sin (2) - Guilt) as the due Sentence of God upon those who reject His law. It is always the Sentence, punishment, or wages (Romans 6:23; see art. Sins, therefore, are personal transgressions against God, which, if unremitted, involve judgment (James 5:12), a personal condemnation and Sentence on the part of the Judge (James 4:12, James 5:9). This Sentence, with its coextensive subject and predicate, is all but a definition
Psalms, Book of - These holy experiences are to be preserved and cherished; but who has not felt the difficulty of calling on God to destroy his enemies? What Christian can take up as his own language such a Sentence as "Happy shall he be that taketh and dasheth thy little ones against the stones. And how can such a Sentence be spiritualised? But such appeals are intelligible in regard to a future day, when, apostasy being universal and opposition to God open and avowed, the destruction of His enemies is the only way of deliverance for His people
Blasphemy (2) - The comprehensive Sentence must include blasphemy against God, although that is not expressly mentioned. Mark’s emphatic Sentence, ‘All their sins … and their blasphemies wherewith soever they shall blaspheme (ὅσα ἂν βλασφημήσωσιν)
Amen - In the mouth of Benaiah (1 Kings 1:36) and Jeremiah (Jeremiah 28:6) it appears as first word in the Sentence, as a strong form of assent to a previous statement. Hogg notes that in English, as in Syriac, it has come to mean ‘consent,’ and has been enabled thus to acquire the sense of ‘the very last,’ even though it commenced its career as first word in the Sentence
Eusebius (60), Bishop of Nicomedia - In 335, the partisan council of Tyre passed a Sentence of deposition upon Athanasius, who had fled to Constantinople to appeal to the emperor, who summoned the whole synod of Tyre before him. Eusebius and a few of his party, Theognis, Patrophilus, Valens, and Ursacius, obeyed the summons, and confronted Athanasius; but abandoning the disproved charges upon which the Sentence of deposition rested, they met him with new accusations likely to damage him in the view of the emperor.

Proverbs - The Gymnosophists of India delivered their philosophy in brief enigmatical Sentences; a practice adopted and carried to a great extent by the ancient Egyptians. The eloquence of Arabia was mostly exhibited in detached and unconnected Sentences, which, like so many loose gems, attracted attention by the fulness of the periods, the elegance of the phraseology, and the acuteness of proverbial sayings. Nor do the Asiatics at present differ, in this respect, from their ancestors, as numerous amthal, or moral Sentences, are in circulation throughout the regions of the east, some of which have been published by Hottinger, Erpenius, the younger Schultens, and others who have distinguished themselves by the pursuit of oriental learning. Had no specimens remained of Hellenic proverbs, we might have concluded this to have been the case; for the Greeks borrowed the rudiments, if not the principal part, of their knowledge from those whom they arrogantly termed barbarians; and it is only through the medium of compendious maxims and brief Sentences that traditionary knowledge can be preserved. ...
Proverbs, in the Hebrew language, are called meshalim, which is derived from a verb signifying both "to rule," "to have dominion," and "to compare" "to liken," "to assimilate: " hence the term denotes the highly figurative and poetical style in general, and likewise those compendious and authoritative Sentences in particular which are commonly denominated proverbs. This term, which our translators have adopted after the Vulgate, denotes, according to our great lexicographer, "a short Sentence frequently repeated by the people, a saw, an adage;" and no other word can, perhaps, be substituted more accurately expressing the force of the Hebrew; or, if there could, it has been so long familiarized by constant use, that a change is totally inadmissible
Think - , the Sentence is "that ye might learn the (i
Justification (2) - If this is on the side of the good, the Divine Sentence of justification follows, which consists in the declaration that the man is righteous. So also in Romans 5:16, if δικαίωμα be rightly translated ‘sentence of justification’ (so Sanday-Headlam, l. Paul here represents this Sentence as falling once for all at the death of Christ. But the Divine Sentence of justification takes account of faith, which is a consideration beyond the purview of the Law: ‘The law is not of faith’ (ib
Mystery - ) as a fulfilment of Isaiah 6:9 conceived as a Sentence of judicial blindness. Manifestly an interpretation of parabolic utterance which supposes it adopted in order to fulfil the prophetic Sentence of judicial blindness on Israel cannot be attributed to Jesus, since the end sought in the parables themselves is the reverse of intentional obscurity

Love - While the former introduces a declaration of the mode in which God's love has been manifested (1 John 4:9,10 ), the second introduces a statement of the identification of believers with God in character, and the issue at the Judgment Seat hereafter (1 John 4:17 ), an identification represented ideally in the Sentence "as He is, so are we in this world

Goel - It would seem that if no avenger of blood appeared, or if he were dilatory in the pursuit of the murderer, it became the duty of the magistrate himself to inflict the Sentence of the law; and thus we find that David deemed this to be his duty in the case of Joab, and that Solomon, in obedience to his father's dying entreaty, actually discharged it by putting that murderer to death, ...
1 Kings 2:5 ; 1 Kings 6:28-34

An effective Sentence of death could be pronounced only by the procurator’s court. ’ In the case of one offence, that of profanation of the sanctuary, even Roman citizens might be tried and condemned by the Sanhedrin, subject, of course, to the procurator’s revision of the capital Sentence. —The Sanhedrin could sit on any day except the Sabbath and holy days; and as Sentence of death could be pronounced (according to the Mishna) only on the day after a trial on a capital charge, such charges were not heard on the day preceding a Sabbath or holy day

Hilarius Arelatensis, Saint, Bishop of Arles - named Chelidonius, the validity of whose position was assailed on the two grounds that he had married a widow while yet a layman, and that he had previously, as a lay magistrate, pronounced Sentences of capital punishment.

Not content with the reversal of Hilary's Sentence, Leo proceeded to deprive the bp

John, the Gospel According to - The language is pure Greek, but the thought is Hebraic, especially the mode of connecting Sentences by conjunctions, "and," "but," "then," etc. The periodic Sentences of the logical Paul, and John's simplicity of style, clothing the profoundest thoughts, answer to their respective characters. Peculiar to John are "verily, verily" (Amen, Amen) beginning a Sentence (others use it at the end of a Sentence, Jesus alone at the beginning), John 1:51; "little children" (John 13:33), as in 1 John; "in the name" (John 5:43), i

Bear - " It is used with the meaning (a) "to take up," as in picking up anything, stones, John 10:31 ; (b) "to carry" something, Matthew 3:11 ; Mark 14:13 ; Luke 7:14 ; 22:10 ; Acts 3:2 ; 21:35 ; Revelation 17:7 ; "to carry" on one's person, Luke 10:4 ; Galatians 6:17 ; in one's body, Luke 11:27 ; "to bear" a name in testimony, Acts 9:15 ; metaphorically, of a root "bearing" branches, Romans 11:18 ; (c) "to bear" a burden, whether physically, as of the cross, John 19:17 , or metaphorically in respect of sufferings endured in the cause of Christ, Luke 14:27 ; Revelation 2:3 ; it is said of physical endurance, Matthew 20:12 ; of sufferings "borne" on behalf of others, Matthew 8:17 ; Romans 15:1 ; Galatians 6:2 ; of spiritual truths not able to be "borne," John 16:12 ; of the refusal to endure evil men, Revelation 2:2 ; of religious regulations imposed on others, Acts 15:10 ; of the burden of the Sentence of God to be executed in due time, Galatians 5:10 ; of the effect at the judgment seat of Christ, to be "borne" by the believer for failure in the matter of discharging the obligations of discipleship, Galatians 6:5 ; (d) to "bear" by way of carrying off, John 12:6 ; 20:15

Metaphor - Again, ‘in metaphor a word in the Sentence to be expressed is replaced by a word denoting an object in some respect similar; frequently it is an abstract word which is replaced by a concrete’ (L. Hence his metaphors become changed almost in the same Sentence, while the thought is being developed. ’ 1 Timothy 6:19 : ‘laying up in store for themselves a good foundation against the time to come, that they may lay hold on the life which is life indeed’ (here the metaphor is changed in the same Sentence from ‘building’ to ‘grasping’)
Eutyches And Eutychianism - Long live the emperor!" The Sentence was pronounced: "Eutyches, formerly priest and archimandrite, hath proved himself affected by the heresy of Valentinus and Apollinaris, and hath refused—in spite of our admonition—to accept the true faith. " Excommunication was pronounced upon all who should consort with and abet him, and the Sentence was signed by 32 (? 28) bishops, and 23 archimandrites. Eutyches himself wrote to the emperor and to many of the bishops, and placarded notices about Constantinople, protesting against his Sentence and justifying his teaching. No such falsification was proved, and the commission had no choice but to confirm the Sentence pronounced by the synod; but an agitation was thereby advanced, which was productive of the greatest misery
Confession - Except a single Sentence in one of the Ignatian Epistles, (A. In his treatise against heresies, this father affirms that "the faith of the church planted throughout the whole world," consisted in the belief of "one God, the Father Almighty, Maker of heaven and earth and sea, and all that are in them; and one Christ Jesus, the Son of God, who became incarnate for our salvation; and one Holy Spirit, who foretold, through the Prophets, the dispensations and advents, and the generation by the virgin, and the passion, and the resurrection from the dead, and the ascension in the flesh into heaven, of Jesus Christ our beloved Lord, and his appearing from heaven in the glory of the Father, to unite together all things under one head, and to raise every individual of the human race; that unto Christ Jesus, our Lord and God, and Saviour and King, every knee may bow, and every tongue confess; that he may pronounce just Sentence upon all. ' This, with a like condemnatory Sentence in the conclusion of the creed, wherein a possibility of salvation is denied to him who does not cordially embrace this doctrine, is pronounced unreasonable, uncharitable, unchristian, with every other aggravating appellation that can be used. Indeed, this condemnatory Sentence in this form by human authority is plainly founded on and borrowed from that divine authority in the Gospel; and whatever distinctions and limitations are allowed in that case are equally applicable to this, and will fully justify both
Theodoretus, Bishop of Cyrrhus - On their way home from Ephesus the Orientals, Theodoret among them, held a synod at Tarsus and renewed the Sentence of deposition on Cyril in conjunction with the seven orthodox deputies to Theodosius II. The unanimous Sentence was that he should be deposed from the priesthood and deprived of even lay communion. " He entreats Leo "to decide whether he ought to submit to the recent Sentence. The leading bishops voted for his restoration, the rest signified their assent by acclamation, and the commissioners gave Sentence that by the decree of the holy council Theodoret should receive again the church of Cyrrhus (Labbe, iv
Lord's Prayer (ii) - But the view that now commends itself to most scholars is that the two members of the Sentence are to be taken as one and the same petition negatively and positively expressed. Perhaps we have striven hard against wrongdoing, but what of the things we have left undone? In Christ’s great vision of the Judgment, ‘Inasmuch as ye did it not’ is the preface to the Sentence of condemnation (Matthew 25:45). On this Jesus placed great emphasis, so great that He does for the fifth petition what He does for no other, adding at the end of the prayer (Matthew 25:14-15) a Sentence of explanation and enforcement, in which He makes it perfectly clear that if we will not forgive those who have trespassed against us, neither will our Father in heaven forgive our trespasses
Eunomius, Bishop of Cyzicus - Sentence of banishment to Mauritania was actually passed upon him, a. But on his way thither, passing through Mursa, the Arian bishop Valens, by personal application to the emperor Valens, obtained the repeal of his Sentence ( ib. He was, the same year, again Sentenced to banishment by Modestus, the prefect of the Praetorian guards, as a disturber of the public peace (ib
Woe - Sentence is first pronounced upon the Pharisees for being so punctilious about matters of a subordinate nature, which should be kept in their proper place, while they neglected those moral obligations, which, were of far higher moment, ‘judgment and the love of God’ (Luke 11:42); for putting themselves forward into the first seats in the face of the congregation, and their fondness for having reverence done to them in public (Luke 11:43); and for being a secret source of defilement to others who were not aware of the evil tendency of their principles (Luke 11:44, cf. Its omission or transposition in the MSS may, however, be due to the fact that several Sentences in succession begin with the same words (Scrivener, Introd. This, which is perhaps the saddest Sentence in the Gospels, was spoken without vindictiveness, although it undoubtedly reveals that our Lord was wounded to the quick by the treachery of Judas
Occupations And Professions in the Bible - If one were to escape, or otherwise be unable to complete his Sentence, the jailer was liable to fulfill the Sentence of the prisoner
Eternal Punishment - The use of the figures ‘weeping and wailing and gnashing of teeth’ in the Sentence of exclusion clearly indicates that remorse is one element in future retribution (cf. ’ The exact award of penalty, the few and many stripes according to the measure of disobedience (Luke 12:47-48), the completed Sentence implied in ‘till thou have paid the last farthing’ (Matthew 5:26; cf
Job - To which may be added, that the style of Job, as Bishop Lowth has remarked, is materially different from the poetical style of Moses; for it is much more compact, concise, or condensed, more accurate in the poetical conformation of the Sentences; as may be observed also in the prophecies of Balaam the Mesopotamian, a foreigner, indeed, with respect to the Israelites, but not unacquainted either with their language, or with the worship of the true God. In the wonderful speech of the Deity, Job 38, 39, every line delineates his attributes, every Sentence opens a picture of some grand object in creation, characterized by its most striking features. Add to this, that its prophetic parts reflect much light on the economy of God's moral government; and every admirer of sacred antiquity, every inquirer after religious instruction, will seriously rejoice that the enraptured Sentence of Job, Job 19:23 , is realized to a more effectual and unforeseen accomplishment; that while the memorable records of antiquity have mouldered from the rock, the prophetic assurance and sentiments of Job are graven in Scriptures that no time shall alter, no changes shall efface
Elisha - Elisha could be as stern as Elijah: at Bethel he treats the mocking youth in the spirit of Sinai (2 Kings 2:23 ), and no touch of pity can be detected in the Sentence that falls on Gehazi ( 2 Kings 5:27 )
Israel - Thus the Sentence, ‘All Israel shall be saved’ (Romans 11:26), refers not to the true or spiritual Israel in the sense of an elect people, as has been held by various commentators, e
Pilate - Fixed principle alone could have saved him from pronouncing that unrighteous Sentence which brands his name forever (Psalm 82)
Apocalyptic - The first Sentence of the Book of Revelation is noteworthy in this connection: “The Revelation of Jesus Christ , which God gave to him , to shew unto his servants things which must shortly come to pass ; and he sent and signified it by his angel unto his servant John : who bare record of all things that he saw
Holiness, Holy, Holily - The Sentence may be paraphrased thus:-- 'The Lord enable you more and more to spend your lives in the interests of others, in order that He may so establish you in Christian character now, that you may be vindicated from every charge that might possibly be brought against you at the Judgement-seat of Christ;' cp
Perfection (Human) - The verb in this Sentence is a future indicative, but practically all scholars agree that it has the force of an imperative (Meyer, Holtzmann, Dods, Weiss, Votaw, etc
Philoxenus, a Monophysite Leader - Feeling ran so high and so much endangered the public peace that the synod was broken up by the emperor's command without pronouncing any Sentence (Labbe, iv
Interpretation - ...
A word’s meaning is decided by the way the writer uses it in the Sentence, paragraph or book, not by the way it developed out of other words in the long-distant past
Judgment Damnation - ...
The prophetic conception of Divine judgment can be summed up in a few Sentences, Jahweh is the World-ruler and Judge: not only Israel but all nations of the earth stand at His bar (Amos 1:2). Compared with the outlook of the great prophets, this conception of a resurrection of the dead for judgment and Sentence is something altogether new. The fate of each soul having been decided, Sentence will at once be executed. The Sentence pronounced will be final: nowhere do we find a hint of future probation
Apocalyptic Literature - He commands Gabriel to rouse the giants against each other; and, finally, he commands Michael to announce to Semjâzâ the Sentence of punishment, which is, that the fallen angels shall be kept enchained and imprisoned under the hills of the earth, waiting the last judgment, when they shall be cast into the fire (10). The Sentence upon the fallen angels is communicated to Enoch (12), and he reveals it to them; but, at their urgent request, he composes a petition on their behalf, that they might obtain forgiveness; while rehearsing this, preparatory to presenting it, he falls asleep and is informed in a dream that their request for forgiveness will not be granted, and once more makes known to the angels their impending doom (13–16). The judgment of the Son of Man over the angels in heaven, and the Sentence of kings by Him, followed by vain pleas on their part for mercy, are given next (61–64)
Ibas, Bishop of Edessa - All Edessa knew that Chaereas had come merely to ratify under the colour of judicial proceedings a Sentence of condemnation already passed. Among those who voted for it were Eustathius of Berytus and Photius of Tyre, who had previously acquitted him on the same evidence The Sentence was that he should be deposed from the episcopate and priesthood, deprived even of lay communion, and compelled to restore the money of which it was pretended he had robbed the poor

Jonah, Theology of - In other lot-casting scenes that identify a person allegedly threatening the life of the community, the judge after ascertaining what was done seeks to pass the death Sentence forthwith
Cain (1) - ...
Exile from the original seat of the human family and the scene of God's manifestations was the Sentence, a mild one, in consonance with the mild administration of the divine government before the flood
Sermon - Quoting Latin and Greek Sentences will be of little utility. That a man may preach, and do good, without knowing much of grammar, is not to be doubted; but certainly it cannot be pleasing to hear a man, who sets himself up as a teacher of others, continually violating all the rules of grammar, and rendering himself a laughing-stock to the more intelligent part of the congregation; "and yet, " says one, "I have heard persons, who could scarce utter three Sentences without a false construction, make grammatical criticisms not only on the English language, but on Latin, Greek, and Hebrew. " Care should always be taken not to use a redundancy of words, and a jingle of Sentences and syllables, as they carry more an air of pedantry than of prudence. "A noble metaphor, when it is placed to advantage, casts a kind of glory round it, and darts a lustre through a whole Sentence
Greek Church - Photius, in his turn, convened what he called an aecumenical council, in which he pronounced Sentence of excommunication and deposition against the pope and got it subscribed by twenty-one bishops and others, amounting in number to a thousand
Heathen - That the words imply personal contempt or dislike for the heathen and the publican, or pronounce a Sentence of exclusion upon them, is, accordingly, out of the question
Zedekiah - Hananiah, who broke the yoke off Jeremiah's neck, died that year according to the Lord's Sentence by Jeremiah
Cross - The words in which the Sentence was given were, "Thou shalt go to the cross
Nebuchadnezzar the Great - He ordered all his diviners and interpreters of dreams to be sent for; but none could tell him the dream or the interpretation: and, in wrath, he Sentenced them all to death, which was about to be put in execution, when Daniel was informed of it. He went immediately to the king, and desired him to respite the Sentence a little, and he would endeavour to satisfy his desire
Arians - The Sentence of the council pronounced against him and his associates was followed by another of the emperor, whereby the excommunicated persons were condemned to banishment, that they might be debarred the society of their countrymen whom the church had judged unworthy to remain in her communion

Severus, Patriarch of Antioch - The Sentence was ratified by Justinian ( ib
Hilarius (7) Pictaviensis, Saint - A challenge from Hilary to discuss the questions at issue publicly, in presence of the emperor, on the evidence of Holy Scripture, was, as he informs us, declined; and Constantius sent his prisoner back to Gaul, without formally annulling the Sentence of banishment or allowing him perfect liberty. ...
Hilary now ventured, despite the unrepealed Sentence of banishment, to journey into N. But this is a somewhat slender foundation to build a superstructure upon; and it is singular to find Ceillier's editor, in his anxiety to damage the authority of the fragmenta, somewhat injuring the credit of the only one brief Sentence in the extensive works of Hilary which can be cited as a recognition, however indirect, of the Roman primacy (Ceillier, iv
Papias - ...
Probably the Sentence beginning ‘But Matthew,’ which the ‘Mark, indeed (μέν), …’ of the extract in Eusebius seems to imply, included a statement that Matthew wrote ‘among the Hebrews,’ i. Many scholars, indeed, point to the Sentence, ‘Touching those raised from the dead by the Christ, that they lived until Hadrian,’ following immediately on some Papian matter in an epitome (Cod. 2, as the very form of the Sentence, ‘Touching … that they lived …,’ suggests
Immorality, Sexual - This judicial Sentence, when compared with the Hebrew prescription of death (Leviticus 20:13 ), shows that in Mesopotamian society the offense was regarded as a secondary civic infraction. Homosexuality is once again condemned, and the sexual perverts Sentenced to death. The marriage of a man, a woman, and her mother is deemed wicked, and the offenders Sentenced to be burned with fire so as to expunge completely the wickedness of the act from the holy community. Sexual relations between a man and his aunt, or between a man and his brother's wife, are regarded as dishonoring the legal spouses, and are accorded the lesser Sentence of childlessness
Begetting - When John, speaking for himself, says in the Prologue (John 1:14), ‘The Word was made flesh, and dwelt among as, and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only-begotten of the Father,’ the subject of the Sentence is He of whom he has just spoken as having been in the beginning with God, and as having been God’s agent in the work of Creation. ...

Devil - He cannot hurt God's elect; his freedom of range in the air and on earth is that of a chained prisoner under Sentence
Manuscripts - There were also cases where copyists deliberately changed the wording to make a Sentence mean what they thought it should mean
Voice (2) - ...
One striking feature about the revelations conveyed by the Bath Kol is that these were usually expressed not in original words, but in some verse or Sentence taken from the Hebrew OT or (in some cases) from the Apocryphal books. It is to be noticed that the Voice at the Baptism and the Transfiguration combines two Sentences of Scripture (Psalms 2:7 and Isaiah 41:1) quite in the manner of the Bath Kol spoken of in Rabbinical literature

Ahab - Elijah with awful majesty denounces his Sentence, "in the place where dogs licked Naboth's blood, shall dogs lick thine" (fulfilled to the letter on Joram his offspring, 2 Kings 9, primarily also on Ahab himself, but not "in the place" where Naboth's blood was shed); while the king abjectly cowers before him with the cry, "Hast thou found me, O mine enemy?" All his male posterity were to be cut off, as Jeroboam's and Baasha's, the two previous dynasties, successively had been (See ELIJAH)
Consecrate, Consecration (2) - They are obliged to give the word ἁγιάζειν two different meanings in the same Sentence, as does the (Revised Version margin): ‘And for their sakes I consecrate myself, that they themselves also may be sanctified in truth
Fornication - Paul condenses into one Sentence the Christian attitude: ‘Flee from fornication’ (1 Corinthians 6:18)
Discipleship - In reading the words one must carefully guard against the lamentable imperfection of rendering in the Authorized Version, and borrowed thence in some of the language of the Book of Common Prayer; also against the faulty punctuation of the Sentence which is found alike in the Authorized Version and the Revised Version NT 1881, OT 1885
Evil - As regards the first point, the writer ventures to repeat a few Sentences he has written elsewhere. As regards the second point, one Sentence regarding Paul will suffice

Paulus of Samosata, Patriarch of Antioch - The Sentence of deposition was easier to pronounce than to carry out
Versions - Next the Gospels, "so that pore Christen men may some dele know the text of the Gospel, with the comyn Sentence of olde holie doctores" (Preface). The prologue says: "a translater hath grete nede to studie well the Sentence both before and after. " The Psalms, the Scripture quotations in the homilies, the Sentences in the Communion, and occasional phrases in the liturgy (as "worthy fruits of penance"), are drawn from Cranmer's Bible
Universalism (2) - see) which confined Christianity to the circumcised); (2) the universal purpose of Christ’s death—for ‘all men’ (as against the Augustinian and Calvinistic doctrine of Christ’s death on behalf of those elected out of the mass of sinful mankind); (3) the ultimate salvation of all souls (as against the eternal suffering of the wicked; or, their destruction; or perhaps as against uncertainty—subjective uncertainty, due to our ignorance, or objective uncertainty, due to the indefiniteness of the Sentence of the Great Day; see below). Deity ‘cannot annihilate, but the Sentence of condemnation is indeterminate rather than eternal (like Sentences of committal to Elmira reformatory prison, N
Eli - And when the divine vision did begin to break its long silence, and to speak again,-for Eli to accept that vision, even when it came in the shape of a Sentence of capital punishment on himself and on his house,-well, if ever faith had her perfect work in an open mind, it was surely in castaway Eli's open mind. And even if that vision comes to condemn your whole life, and to pass Sentence on you, and on your evil house; yet, even so, better that than to live and die in the long absence and the total silence of an angry God
Sweat - These verses and the first Sentence of Luke 23:34 may be safely called the most precious among the remains of this Evangelic tradition which were rescued from oblivion by the scribes of the 2nd century
Roman Law - These included the right to vote for magistrates, the right to be elected as a magistrate, the right to contract a legal marriage, the right to hold property in the Roman community, and the right to appeal to the people, and in later times to the emperor, against the Sentences passed by magistrates or other officials of rank. Following the cognitio , the governor would then render his verdict in the form of a Sentence to a particular punishment
Ecclesiastes, the Book of - So pithgam , "sentence" (Ecclesiastes 8:11); "thought," madang ; 'illuw "though" (Ecclesiastes 6:6); bikeen , "so" (Ecclesiastes 8:10): thus, Esther approximates most to Ecclesiastes in idioms
Destructionists - Those who believe that the final punishment threatened in the Gospel to the wicked and impenitent consists not in an eternal preservation in misery and torment, but in a total extinction of being, and that the Sentence of annihilation shall be executed with more or less torment, preceding or attending the final period, in proportion to the greater or less guilt of the criminal The name assumed by this denomination, like those of many others, takes for granted the question is dispute, viz
Uniqueness - ‘No man cometh unto the Father but by me’ (John 14:6)—that is the strong declaration which the Fourth Gospel places upon His lips; and a full equivalent is supplied by the other Gospels in such Sentences as these: ‘The Son of Man came not to be ministered unto, but to minister, and to give his life a ransom for many’ (Matthew 20:28). In words which match the significance of the Pauline declaration that in His name every knee shall bow and every tongue confess His lordship (Philippians 2:10 f), He pictured the gathering of all nations before His throne of judgment, to receive from His lips the merited Sentence (Matthew 25:31 ff
Bible, Hermeneutics - Here, you must examine the form of the writer's grammar: what is signified by the grammatical constructions, the verb forms used, what is given emphasis in a Sentence, the relationships of the words to each other, etc

Examining the opening vertical unit of the prayer we notice its poetic arrangement in the following Sentence flow of verse 9-10 : ...

Stephen - Again as to Acts 7:15-16, "Jacob and our fathers were carried over into Sychem, and laid in the sepulchre that Abraham bought of Emmor," Stephen with elliptical brevity refers to six different chapters, summing up in one Sentence, which none of his hearers could misunderstand from their familiarity as to the details, the double purchase (from Ephron the Hittite by Abraham, and from Hamor of Shechem by Jacob: Genesis 23:16; Genesis 33:19), the double burial place (Machpelah's cave and the ground at Shechem), and the double burial (Jacob in Machpelah's cave: Genesis 50:13, and Joseph in the Shechem ground of Jacob, Genesis 50:25; Exodus 13:19; Joshua 24:32)

Then shall come indeed an awful day; a day to which all that have preceded it are intended to be subservient; when the Lord shall appear in the united splendour of creating, of governing, and of judicial majesty, to finish his purposes respecting man and earth, and to pronounce the final, irreversible Sentence, "It is done!" Revelation 21:6

Psalms, Book of, - The captivity of Manasseh himself proved to be but temporary; but the Sentence which his sins had provoked upon Judah and Jerusalem still remained to be executed, and precluded the hope that God's salvation could be revealed till after such an outpouring of his judgments as the nation had never yet known
Leander (2) - All that is historically known of the origin of the famous family, which included his two brothers ISIDORE and FULGENTIUS, and their only sister FLORENTINA, is derived from the opening Sentence in Isidore's Life of Leander ( de Vir
Punishment (2) - The victim’s suffering was so intense that it frequently led to death before the capital Sentence proper could be carried into effect
Odes of Solomon - The Sentence which introduces them is προεφήτευσε per Salomonem, the subject being vis luminis. We have seen that the thread of the narrative is unmistakably one throughout the book; to suppose that a second writer changed some verses that savoured of Judaism and gave them a Christian tone, or to believe that he interpolated existing passages with Sentences altogether opposed in spirit to those he wished to modify, would imply that this second writer was a consummate artist. ’ To prove that this verse alludes to baptism, a Sentence is cited from the book entitled Exposition of Baptism by the Syrian writer Moses Bar Kéfa (9th cent. For instance, as parallels to the following Sentence of the same Ode, ‘for he that is joined to Him that is immortal, will also himself become immortal,’ a quotation from Clement and another from Ephrem are cited which run thus: ‘Being baptized, we are illuminated; illuminated, we become sons; being made sons, we are made perfect; being made perfect, we are made immortal’ (Paed. ’ These Sentences seem to allude to the Temple of Solomon, the principal place of worship for Judaism
Nestorius And Nestorianism - This Sentence of deposition was affixed to the public buildings and proclaimed by the heralds. John's party then excommunicated Cyril and Memnon, posted up their Sentence and transmitted their report to the emperor. The Sentence on Nestorius was carried out
Pelagianism And Pelagius - A Sentence of excommunication was passed upon him and his followers.

Presbyterians - He may, indeed, enter his protest against their Sentence, if he think it improper, and appeal to the judgment of the presbytery; but this privilege belongs equally to every elder, as well as to every person who may believe himself aggrieved by the proceedings of the session. The presbytery treats of such matters as concern the particular churches within its limits; as the examination, admission, ordination, and censuring of ministers; the licensing of probationers, rebuking the gross or contumacious sinners, the directing the Sentence of excommunication, the deciding upon references and appeals from kirk sessions, resolving cases of conscience, explaining difficulties in doctrine or discipline; and censuring, according to the word of God, any heresy or erroneous doctrine which hath either been publicly or privately maintained within the bounds of its jurisdiction

Eusebius, Bishop of Samosata - The imperial Sentence ordered his instant departure to Thrace ( ib. Paul, the refusal of costly gifts, the parting of the old man from his people, and the disappearance of the venerable confessor on his long and perilous journey to the Danube, are all told in a few striking Sentences
Repentance (2) - But it is specifically shown in those sayings of His which reveal His view of the inherent sinfulness of human nature: ‘If ye being evil’ (πονηροὶ ὄντες, Matthew 7:11); ‘a corrupt tree cannot (οὐ δύναται, Matthew 7:18) bring forth good fruit’; and that terse statement of the whole situation which in one epigrammatic Sentence sums up all that St

Marks Stigmata - It is employed for the taking up of stones (John 10:31); for bearing the cross (Luke 14:27, John 19:17); for undertaking a matter with calmness and sufficient strength (John 16:12, Galatians 6:5); for bearing the Sentence of a judge (Galatians 5:10); for bearing or enduring (φέρειν is the classical word generally used) (Matthew 20:12, Acts 15:10, Romans 15:1, Galatians 6:2, Revelation 2:2 f

James And John, the Sons of Zebedee - Baroccianus 142 (Oxford), among which is found the Sentence, Παπίας ἐν τῷ δευτέρῳ λόγῳ λέγει, ὅτι Ἰωάννης ὁ θεολόγος καὶ Ἰάκωβος ὁ ἀδελφὸς αὐτοῦ ὑπὸ Ἰουδαίων ἁνῃρέθησαν places the matter in a wholly different position. 666) suggests, against the presence of such a Sentence in Papias
Judas Iscariot (2) - ’—The meaning of the statement that ‘Judas was a thief’ (John 12:6) is quite plain, if the Revised Version NT 1881, OT 1885 correctly renders the following Sentence: ‘and having the bag, took away (ἐβάσταζεν) what was put therein. It is the substantive derived from the same root as the main verb of the Sentence (ἀπώλετο)
Last Supper - Yet, if we limit the term to the ‘first day,’ the remainder of the Sentence is inexact, the lamb being slain before the legal ‘first day’ began. It seems impossible to treat the Sentence as rigidly and historically accurate, in the terms in which the text has come to us
Mark, Gospel According to - 170? or perhaps a little later) begins in the middle of a Sentence thus: ‘… quibus tamen interfuit, et ita posuit. Seldom has one short Sentence had such an unfortunate effect in distorting a judgment on a literary work; and largely in consequence of it Mk
Atonement - Opponents of the doctrine of vicarious atonement say, "it exhibits God as less willing to forgive than His creatures are bound to be;" but man's justice, which is the faint reflex of God's, binds the judge, however lamenting the painful duty, to Sentence the criminal to death as a satisfaction to outraged law
Covenant - ...
The covenant of works is that whereby God requires perfect obedience from his creatures, in such a manner as to make no express provision for the pardon of offences, committed against the precepts of it on the repentance of such offenders, but pronounces a Sentence of death upon them, Genesis 2:1-25 : Galatians 4:24
Sayings (Unwritten) - ” ’ The last Sentence agrees in sentiment with a well-known text; but these Mohammedan traditions of Christ’s words are for the most part of no value
Conscience - These Sentences are not intended to deny that in the application of principles there is difficulty. But is law the last word? May there not be mercy and an atonement? Cannot the accusing voices be hushed? May the man who admits the Sentence of conscience be pardoned? Conscience is a John the Baptist preparing the way for the Saviour, who has a reply to the question ‘What must I do to be saved?’...
Paul as a Preacher - And to preach all that as I have never yet preached it: and, then, you would perhaps take my epitaph out of Luther on the Galatians, and would write this Sentence over me-"Come, and see, all ye that pass by, for here lies a right divine
Fall - Declination of sound a sinking of tone cadence as the fall of the voice at the close of a Sentence
Diognetus, Epistle to - ) after a break in the middle of a Sentence, the discourse points to martyrdoms as "signs," not of the return but "of the presence" of the Lord, as though saying, "You see, He is still with us. It exhibits the same anarthrous use of nouns, the same accumulation of clause on clause, not pursued too far; the same unexpected turns at the close of the Sentences; the same union of dignity with sweetness, the same blending of Pauline with Johannine teaching; the same persistent subordination of doctrine to life
Parousia (2) - Entrusted by the Father with supreme judicial functions (John 5:22-23), He will gather all nations before Him to receive a reward according to their works (Matthew 16:27; Matthew 25:32); the secrets of all hearts shall be unveiled (Luke 12:2); there shall be a sifting and separation of the good from the bad, the spurious from the true (Matthew 7:22-23; Matthew 13:41; Matthew 13:49; Matthew 25:32); and the Sentence of approval or of condemnation passed shall depend on the attitude and spirit towards Himself by which the life has been swayed (Matthew 25:34-46)
Elisha - " His Sentence was according to his unbelief; "thou shalt see it . There Elisha anointed Jehu, by the hand of one of the children of the prophets, to take vengeance on Ahab's guilty seed, having been witness of that monarch's wicked seizure of Naboth's vineyard and of Elijah's awful Sentence on him (2 Kings 9:26)
Aristion (Aristo) - From the Preface (προοίμιον) Eusebius cited the following Sentence to prove that Irenaeus had misunderstood Papias in taking him to refer to the Apostle John as his authority, whereas the ‘John’ in question was not the ‘disciple of the Lord,’ but a comparatively obscure ‘Elder. ’ We abridge the Sentence, but give the relevant variants: εἱ δέ που καὶ παρηκολουθηκώς τις τοῖς πρεσβυτέροις ἔλθοι, τοὺς τῶν πρεσβυτέρων ἀνέκρινον λόγους· τἰ Ἀνδρέας ἠ τί Πέτρος εἶπεν … ἤ τις ἔτερος τῶν τοῦ Κυρίου μαθητῶν, ἄτε Ἀριστίων καὶ ὁ πρεσβύτερος Ἰωάννης οἱ τοῦ Κυρίου μαθηταὶ λέγουσιν
Sin - There is a moral order in man and the world condemning and executing Sentence on sin; and, if God be personally immanent in the world, we cannot distinguish that moral order from the mind and will of God. Paul affirms, is not that of effect and cause, but of penalty and transgression (Ephesians 2:1-108), or wages and work (Romans 6:23); for he thinks not of a natural sequence, but of a deserved Sentence (Romans 2:5)
Arius, Followers of - A council was assembled at Antioch (338–339) in which the old charges were revived against Athanasius, and which confirmed his Sentence of deposition from his see. At the council held at the dedication ( encaenia ) of a church at Antioch in 341, the Sentence on Athanasius was confirmed, and after the rejection of a creed of distinctly Arian tendencies, a new creed, either composed by Lucian the Martyr or by his disciple Asterius, was brought forward as a substitute for the symbol of Nicaea
Julius (5), Bishop of Rome - They prepared canons and three creeds, designed to convince the Western church of their orthodoxy, confirmed the Sentence of the council of Tyre against Athanasius, and endeavoured to prevent his restoration by a canon with retrospective force, debarring even from a hearing any bishop or priest who should have officiated after a canonical deposition. Osius said: It has seemed good to us ( placuit ) that if any bishop has been accused, and the assembled bishops of his own region have deposed him, and if he has appealed to the bishop of the Roman church, and if the latter is willing to hear him, and considers it just that the inquiry should be renewed, let him deign to write to the bishops of a neighbouring province, that they may diligently inquire into everything, and give their Sentence according to the truth
Papias, Bishop of Hierapolis - The first Sentence of the extract had evidently followed one in which the writer had spoken of the "interpretations" which appear to have been the main subject of his treatise, and for joining his traditions with which he conceives an apology necessary. Remembering the solicitude Papias here displays to clear the Gospels from all suspicion of error, and the recognition of inspired authority implied in the title λόγια , we cannot admit the inference which has been drawn from the last Sentence of the fragment, that Papias attached little value to the Gospels as compared with the viva voce traditions he could himself attest; and we endorse Lightfoot's explanation, that it was the Gnostic apocryphal writings which Papias found useless in his attempts to illustrate the Gospel narrative accepted by the church
Death, Mortality - Murderers are to receive the Sentence of capital punishment (Genesis 9:5-6 ) because we are made in the image of God
the Unprofitable Servant - But at the same time He solemnly warns all His so-called ministers that He will irrevocably pronounce this very Sentence at the last day against some of them
Harmony of the Gospels - The same is true in word usage and Sentence structure
Micah, Theology of - ...
Micah's theology represents both aspects of the Lord's covenant with Israel: the Lord will Sentence his covenant people to exile out of the land of blessing if they fail to keep his righteous law, but he will always preserve from them a righteous remnant to whom he will give his sworn land after the exile (2:5) and through whom he will bless the nations (4:1-5). In the first two prophecies of the first cycle, Samaria (1:3-7) and Judah (1:8-16) are Sentenced to destruction and exile because of their idolatry (vv. ...
In a breathtaking turn, he shifts from these judicial Sentences reducing Jerusalem to a heap of rubble and its temple to a forested height to seven visions pertaining to Israel's "last days" (4:1,6; 5:10), a future that paradoxically reverses the present situationthe "now" of distress (4:9,11; 5:1, not translated in NIV)and at the same time brings to a fitting outcome that toward which it is striving
Majesty (2) - Was it not this majesty of a pure soul that arrested and troubled Pilate himself in the midst of his keen concern for his own selfish interests and his lofty Roman contempt for a mere Jew? And was it not this same majesty of holiness that smote upon the heart of the very centurion who carried out the Sentence of crucifixion, so that he exclaimed, ‘Certainly this was a righteous man’ (Luke 23:47)? Sometimes we see Christ’s moral majesty flashing out so overwhelmingly that it works with a kind of physical effect, as when the profane traffickers in the Temple cringe and flee before Him; or when, in the Garden, as He steps out of the shadows, saying, ‘I am he,’ His enemies go backward, and fall to the ground (John 18:5 f
Atonement - and there it should be 'reconciliation,' and the verb in the preceding Sentence is so translated: "If when we were enemies we were reconciled to God by the death of his Son, much more being reconciled, we shall be saved by his life
Versions of the Scripture, English - He completed the four Gospels first, with a commentary, saying in his preface that he did it "so that pore Cristen men may some dele know the text of the Gospel with the comyn Sentence of olde holie doctores
Devil - We are also taught that this grand adversary of God and man has a numerous band of fallen spirits under his control; and that both he and they are reserved under a Sentence of condemnation unto the judgment of the great day, Judges 1:6 ; and that "everlasting fire," or perpetual torment, "is prepared for the devil and his angels," Matthew 25:41
Jephthah - His own son, Jonathan, inadvertently ate a honey comb, not knowing of his father's oath, for which Saul Sentenced him to die. No father, merely by his own authority, could put an offending, much less an innocent, child to death, upon any account, without the Sentence of the magistrates, Deuteronomy 21:18-21 , and the consent of the people, as in Jonathan's case
Plagues of Egypt - Note that in Psalms 105:31 the ‘swarm’ and the ‘mosquitoes’ are coupled in one Sentence; and Psalms 78:45 omits the ‘mosquitoes’ altogether
Martinus, Saint, Bishop of Tours - Ambrose protested, and refused communion with the bishops responsible for this Sentence
Arius the Heresiarch - The Sentence γεννηθέντα ἐκ τοῦ Πατρός μονογενῆ was made definitely τούτεστιν ἐκ τῆς οὐσίας τοῦ Πατρός . As to Eusebius of Nicomedia, it is clear that Constantine found some reason to suspect his sincerity, as well as that of Theognis and Maris, for he soon after included them in the Sentence pronounced on Arius. Philostorgius says that Secundus and Theonas predicted that this would happen when they themselves had been Sentenced to banishment
Fall - ...
(2) Some connexion with Adam must be asserted; but of what kind? An explanation accepted by many commentators, while on grammatical grounds not rendering ἐφʼ ᾧ ‘in whom’ but ‘because,’ yet treats the Sentence as convening the equivalent meaning. But when we observe the irregularity of the structure of the very Sentence, introducing such ambiguity into St. -Although the writer holds the conviction that it is not necessary for the Christian theologian to try and save as much as he dare of the wreckage of the doctrine of the Fall, after the storm of literary and historical criticism has passed over it, a few Sentences may be added in closing this article as to the relation of modern Christian thought to the doctrine
Moses - " And immediately after this Sentence, as the earnest of its full accomplishment, all the spies, except Caleb and Joshua, were cut off, and died by the plague before the Lord, Numbers 14:11-37 ; Deuteronomy 1:34-39 . How severely Moses felt his deprivation, appears from his humble, and it should seem repeated, supplications to the Lord to reverse the Sentence: "O Lord of gods, thou hast begun to show thy servant thy greatness, and thy mighty hand; for what god is there in heaven or in earth that can do according to thy works, and according to thy might? I pray thee let me go over and see the good land beyond Jordan, even that goodly mountain Lebanon," or the whole breadth of the land
Montanus - Visitors came from far to witness the wonderful phenomena; and the condemned prophets hoped to reverse the first unfavourable verdict by the Sentence of a larger tribunal. The result was that the Roman church approved the Sentence of the Asiatic bishops, as we know independently from Tertullian
Discipline - That the Sentence is reformatory is confirmed by the fact that Paul ends the pronouncement in 1 Corinthians 5:5 with the express intent that the offender's spirit may be "saved in the day of the Lord"; similarly, 1 Timothy 1:20 notes that "Hymenaeus and Alexander were handed over to Satan to be taught not to blaspheme
Flood, the - The divine judgment involved a period of probation (Genesis 6:3 ), followed by a judicial investigation ("The Lord saw " Genesis 6:5 ; "I have determined, " Genesis 6:13 ; RSV ), the Sentence (Genesis 6:7 ), and its execution (the bringing of the flood, Genesis 7:11-24 )
Lots - ) prohibits the procuring of a Divine Sentence by drawing a lot at the sanctuary with headless arrows
Historical - Strictly, each Sentence has one meaning, and only one—the meaning its human author designed; the meaning its first readers would naturally apprehend
Jonah - It must be confessed, however, that this explanation seems somewhat forced, in view of the peculiar form of the Sentence in Luke 2:40, and there is not a little to be said against it; and it is perhaps more satisfactory to suppose that our Lord was speaking only in general terms
Boethius, Anicus Manlius Severinus - A Sentence of confiscation and death was passed upon him by the senate without a trial; he was imprisoned in the Milanese territory, and ultimately executed in one of the ways named above, probably about the 50th year of his age, a
the Slothful Servant Who Hid His Lord's Money - And at the same time he began to lay up those immense stores of reading and writing that make his every Sentence today a model of fulness, and clearness, and finish
Judas - And we have already left upon record, the awful Sentence which will be read to all such in the great day of God
Reprobation - That some of those who, as they suppose, are under this Sentence of reprobation, die in their infancy, is, probably, what most Calvinists allow; and, if their doctrine be received, cannot be denied; and it follows, therefore, that all such infants are eternally lost
Parables - ...
Additionally, Jesus told his famous (3) narrative parables that represent a specific situation and often include in the first Sentence reference to a certain person
Joannes Presbyter - What remains but that the second John had the same right to the title as Andrew, Peter, and the rest to whom it is given in the beginning of the Sentence? ...
Hence while we own the Eusebian interpretation of Papias to be a possible one, we are unable to see that it is the only possible one; and therefore while willing to receive the hypothesis of two Johns, if it will help to explain any difficulty, we do not think the evidence strong enough to establish it as an historical fact: and we frankly own that if it were not for deference to better judges, we should unite with Keim in relegating, though in a different way, this "Doppelgänger" of the apostle to the region of ghostland
Athanasius, Archbishop of Alexandria - It was argued that Athanasius had offended against all ecclesiastical principles by resuming his see in defiance of the Tyrian Sentence, and by virtue of mere secular authority. The Sentence passed against Athanasius at Tyre was affirmed; several canons were passed; and three creeds were framed, in language partly vague and general, partly all but reaching the Nicene standard (cf. The Eusebian bishops, although urged to confront their adversaries, withdrew from Sardica and established themselves as a council at Philippopolis within the Eastern empire, renewed the Sentences against Athanasius, put forth new ones against Julius, Hosius, and others, drew up an encyclic, and adopted a creed ( Apol
Basilius, Bishop of Caesarea in Cappadocia - The aspect of a court of justice with its official state and band of ministers prepared to execute its Sentence might inspire awe. Again Basil's exile was determined on, but the pens with which Valens was preparing to sign the decree refused to write, and split in his agitated hand, and the supposed miracle arrested the execution of the Sentence
Gregorius (14) Nazianzenus, Bishop of Sasima And of Constantinople - In the first Sentence he is called "the dragon, the apostate, the Assyrian, the common enemy, the great mind" (Is 10:12, LXX); and this Sentence is typical
Calvinism - This is the scheme of predestination as exhibited by Calvin; and to the objection taken from justice, he replies, "They" (the objectors) "inquire by what right the Lord is angry with his creatures who had not provoked him by any previous offence; for that to devote to destruction whom he pleases, is more like the caprice of a tyrant, than the lawful Sentence of a judge. If all whom the Lord predestinates to death are, in their natural condition, liable to the Sentence of death, what injustice do they complain of receiving from him?" To this Calvin very fairly states the obvious rejoinder made in his day; and which the common sense of mankind will always make,— "They object, Were they not by the decree of God antecedently predestinated to that corruption which is now stated as the cause of their condemnation? When they perish in their corruption, therefore, they only suffer the punishment of that misery into which, in consequence of his predestination, Adam fell, and precipitated his posterity with him
Wilderness of the Wanderings - ...
At the first encampment they were at Kadesh for at least the 40 days of the spies' search (Numbers 13:25); here Moses and the tabernacle remained (Numbers 14:44) when the people presumptuously tried to occupy the land in spite of Jehovah's Sentence dooming all above 20 to die in the wilderness (the name Kadesh, "holy," may be due to the long continuance of the holy tabernacle there)

In reading the Old Testament account, therefore, of the Jewish wars and conquests in Canaan, and the terrible destruction brought upon the inhabitants thereof, we are always to remember that we are reading the execution of a dreadful but just Sentence, pronounced by Jehovah against the intolerable and incorrigible crimes of these nations; that they were intended to be made an example to the whole world of God's avenging wrath against sins, which, if they had been suffered to continue, might have polluted the whole ancient world, and which could only be checked by the signal and public overthrow of nations notoriously addicted to them, and so addicted as even to have incorporated them into their religion and their public institutions; and that the Israelites were mere instruments in the hands of a righteous Providence for effecting the extirpation of a people, of whom it was necessary to make a public example to the rest of mankind; that this extermination, which might have been accomplished by a pestilence, by fire, by earthquakes, was appointed to be done by the hands of the Israelites, as being the clearest and most intelligible method of displaying the power and the righteousness of the God of Israel; his power over the pretended gods of other nations; and his righteous indignation against the crimes into which they were fallen

God - Exemplifications of the divine mercy are traced from age to age, in his establishing his own worship among men, and remitting the punishment of individual and national offences in answer to prayer offered from penitent hearts, and in dependence upon the typified or actually offered universal sacrifice:—of his condescension, in stooping to the cases of individuals; in his dispensations both of providence and grace, by showing respect to the poor and humble; and, principally, by the incarnation of God in the form of a servant, admitting men into familiar and friendly intercourse with himself, and then entering into heaven to be their patron and advocate, until they should be received into the same glory, "and so be for ever with the Lord:"—of his strictly righteous government, in the destruction of the old world, the cities of the plain, the nations of Canaan, and all ancient states, upon their "filling up the measure of their iniquities;" and, to show that "he will by no means clear the guilty;" in the numerous and severe punishments inflicted even upon the chosen seed of Abraham, because of their transgressions:—of his long-suffering, in frequent warnings, delays, and corrective judgments inflicted upon individuals and nations, before Sentence of utter excision and destruction:—of faithfulness and truth, in the fulfilment of promises, often many ages after they were given, as in the promises to Abraham respecting the possession of the land of Canaan by his seed, and in all the "promises made to the fathers" respecting the advent, vicarious death, and illustrious offices of the "Christ," the Saviour of the world:—of his immutability, in the constant and unchanging laws and principles of his government, which remain to this day precisely the same, in every thing universal, as when first promulgated, and have been the rule of his conduct in all places as well as through all time:—of his prescience of future events, manifested by the predictions of Scripture:— and of the depth and stability of his counsel, as illustrated in that plan and purpose of bringing back a revolted world to obedience and felicity, which we find steadily kept in view in the Scriptural history of the acts of God in former ages; which is still the end toward which all his dispensations bend, however wide and mysterious their sweep; and which they will finally accomplish, as we learn from the prophetic history of the future, contained in the Old and New Testaments
