1910 New Catholic Dictionary - Metal-Work in the Service of the Church
From the earliest times utensils and vessels of metal have been used in the liturgical rites of the Church. In the 3century there were donations to the Roman basilicas of golden chalices. To this period also belong bowls of silver for chrism and statuettes of precious metals. The altar and ciborium were adorned with gold and silver. Silver was used for the iconostasis, and lamps of gold, silver, and bronze illuminated the churches. The statues were either carved or made of wood overlaid with gold. The Byzantine work showed Oriental influence in the use of cloisonne enamel. In the 6th century gold work adorned with verrotorie cloisonnee (glass mosaic) was made in the West. Later the art of metal hammering was introduced. Workers of great skill were found among the monks. The Romanesque period (1050-1250) is the golden age of metal-work. Copper took the place of gold and champleve replaced cloisonne. The popular tendency was shown in the introduction of secular types of decoration. Metal was cast for making doors and fonts. The Gothic period revived the use of silver and introduced a translucent enamel. The tendency was for lightness and mobility of form. The arts had gradually passed into the hands of the laity. Cast bronze was used for candelabra and lecterns. Splendid doors were produced in France. During the Renaissance the most distinguished sculptors in Italy worked in bronze. For a long time the Gothic forms persisted, but the ornament was copied from antique models. The metal-work of the baroque period is clumsy in design; in the period of classicism the style is over rigid. The revival of the styles of medieval art in the 19th century has been beneficial to ecclesiastical metal work.
Holman Bible Dictionary - Work, Theology of
Meaning and value God places on human labor.
God's People Work Because They Are Made in His Image The Bible opens with a picture of a working God. God worked in creating a universe. He has been at the job of sustaining creation since He fashioned it. To be created in God's image means, in part, that people have the capacity to work, to fashion, to create. The notion that labor came into being as a result of humanity's fall does not reflect biblical truth. Sinless humanity was placed in the garden to cultivate it. The opportunity to labor was part of God's original commission to mankind to subdue the earth. Adam and Eve were given a situation that needed tending. Paradise had its chores.
Whereas the entrance of sin did not precipitate humanity's need to labor, it has affected the original circumstances of people's work. As He expelled them from the garden, God told Adam and Eve they would have to labor hard to carve out a living. Sin hinders the progress of men's and women's efforts and thwarts their genius. Nature does not cooperate like it would without the curse. People's physical ability has been limited by the effect of sin. A person's mental capacity has been drastically reduced by the ravages of sin.
However, the primal commission for humanity to subdue the earth remains in force. In the garden imagery, cultivation was the scope of the original pair's labor. Today the range would be broadened to include every pursuit of people—cultural, physical, social, and spiritual.
God's People Reflect Him Through Practicing Integrity in Their Work Christianity that is real shows up in the marketplace. It affects the work of employees and the attitude of employers. Christian employees are conscious of their responsibilities to their employers. Followers of Christ know they owe their employers an honest day's work. Those representing Christ should strive to be the most productive and conscientious workers in the company. Christians view their service to their employer as ultimately rendered to God, knowing He is the ultimate judge of their efforts (Ephesians 6:5-8 ). Those in authority over others in the workplace have special responsibility. Christian supervisors or employers know they are accountable to God for how they treat those under them (Ephesians 5:9 ). Managers' testimony for Christ is on the line in their dealings with subordinates. Fairness, reasonableness, and generosity can be maintained even when a standard of excellence is upheld.
God's People Realize His Plan for Work Also Includes a Plan for Rest After six days of creation God rested. He reflected on the worth and meaning of His work. Later He prescribed a day of rest for His people each week to do the same (Exodus 20:8-11 ). God knows people have physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual limits. These must be guarded by a proper balance of work and rest.
God's People See Their Primary Vocation as Serving Him For Christians, life's primary vocation is ministry. Christians view their workplace as a ministry post. Their pulpits are their desks, their cars, their classrooms, their kitchens. Seeing oneself as a mine worker, homemaker, school teacher, or professional person who happens to be a Christian is fundamentally different from seeing oneself primarily as a Christian who happens to be a secretary, salesperson, or accountant. A proper theology of work operating in the lives of believers would see many people positively influenced toward Christ in every setting where Christians are found working.

Although there was no education for the blind until the 18th century, mainly due to the error as to their mental capacities, the Church provided for their corporeal needs from the earliest ages. Special care was given to them, and hospices for the blind were founded by Saint Basil at Caesarea (4th century), Saint Bertrand in France (7th century), William the Conqueror, and Saint Louis, King of France, who established at Paris, c.1260,the "Hospice des Quinze-Vingts," surviving to this day. In the 16th century special processes for their education, attempted by Cardano and the Jesuit, Francesco Lana-Terzi, met with little success. The modern movement for education of the blind was originated by Valentin Haüy (1745-1822), who provided a system of tactual printing which resulted in a permanent literature, and founded the first school for the blind, 1784. Various inventors made improvements on Haüy's device, and in 1829 Louis Braille perfected his dot system which was soon adopted in most countries and is the basis of other simpler methods. To supply Catholic literature gratuitously for the blind in the United States, Joseph Stadelman founded, in 1900, a society called "The Xavier Free Publication Society for the Blind of the City of New York," which prints and circulates thousands of volumes.

Bridgeway Bible Dictionary - Work
In the original languages of the Bible, the word ‘work’ had a broad meaning. It was often used of action or behaviour in general (Psalms 9:16; Amos 8:7; Ephesians 2:8-9; Proverbs 31:16-249; see GOOD WORKS). Its specific usages may be grouped into three main categories, namely, ordinary physical work, particular service for God, and the works of God himself.
Physical work
From the beginning God intended people to work. In so doing, they would develop their physical and mental abilities and at the same time learn how to benefit from the created world that God had given them (Genesis 1:28; Genesis 2:15). It is not work that is the result of sin, but the pain and suffering that result from work in a world dominated by sin. As a result of sin, people lost the spiritual power that God originally gave, so that the physical creation, which was intended for their enjoyment, became the means of their torment. Work, instead of bringing physical pleasure, brought pain and hardship (Genesis 3:16-19; Ecclesiastes 2:22-23).
Work is part of God’s plan for the proper functioning of human life. God desires that people find dignity and enjoyment in the work they do. This applies not just to work that earns money, but to unpaid work such as household and community tasks (Matthew 6:25-33; Ecclesiastes 9:10; cf. Psalms 104:19-24).
Christians have additional reasons for taking interest in whatever they do, as their aim is to please Christ, their unseen master. They will work honestly whether or not someone is watching, and will find satisfaction in doing all tasks well, whether or not those tasks are enjoyable (Colossians 3:23; Ephesians 6:6-8; 1 Peter 2:18). The Christian who works solely for the purpose of getting income is not serving Christ (Matthew 6:24).
Although diligence in work is necessary if a person is to earn a living honestly (1 Thessalonians 2:9; 2 Thessalonians 3:8), it should not be used as an excuse for selfish ambition. Work becomes a god when a person’s chief concern is to get rich (Matthew 19:21-22; Luke 12:16-21; Luke 19:13-17; James 4:13-17; James 5:1-6; see WEALTH). It also becomes a god when a person does not know how to cease from it. Rest and recreation, both physical and mental, are part of the weekly work cycle that the Creator intended for his creatures (Genesis 2:3; Exodus 20:8-11; cf. Mark 6:31; Luke 10:38-41; see SABBATH).
God is not pleased with those who are lazy or who refuse to work (Proverbs 13:4; 1 Corinthians 9:4-72; Proverbs 21:25; Ecclesiastes 10:18; 2 Thessalonians 3:6; 2 Thessalonians 3:10-12). But he is sympathetic to people who, for various reasons, are not able to work, and he expects others to help them (Deuteronomy 15:7-11; Proverbs 17:5; Isaiah 58:7; Luke 14:12-14; Luke 16:19-26; Romans 12:13; Ephesians 4:28).
All workers, whether employers or employees, are entitled to a just reward for their work. This includes the right to honest profits and fair wages (Ecclesiastes 5:18-19; Proverbs 14:23; 1618616941_13; Leviticus 19:13; Ecclesiastes 11:1; Ecclesiastes 11:4; Ecclesiastes 11:6; Luke 10:7; James 3:16; Colossians 4:1). The Bible consistently condemns an over-concern with income, especially when it produces dishonesty, violence and exploitation (Deuteronomy 24:14-15; Proverbs 20:17; Proverbs 21:6; Jeremiah 22:13; Jeremiah 22:17; Amos 8:4-6; Luke 3:10-14; 1 Timothy 6:9; James 5:4). All Christians, employers and employees alike, are answerable to a heavenly master who favours no one on the basis of social class (Ephesians 6:5; Ephesians 6:9). He expects all his people to trust in him and to put the interests of his kingdom before their own (Ecclesiastes 2:24).
Particular service for God
Though God’s people must carry out all work as if it is his work, they recognize that certain activities are in a special sense God’s work. Such activities are those that concern the preaching of the gospel, the planting of churches and the building up of God’s people. All Christians are, to some extent, involved in this work, for all have been given tasks according to their God-given abilities (1 Corinthians 12:4-7; see GIFTS OF THE SPIRIT). Therefore, all Christians will one day have their work assessed, as a result of which they will either receive a reward or suffer loss (1 Corinthians 3:10-15; see REWARD).
God may set apart certain people for specific kinds of work (Acts 13:2; Acts 14:26; Ephesians 4:11-13; 1 Timothy 1:18; 1 Timothy 3:1). Such people should do their work with perseverance, honesty and joy, even though the work may at times bring them suffering and distress (Romans 15:17-20; 1 Corinthians 15:58; 2 Corinthians 11:24-29; Philippians 2:30). Christians respect their fellow believers who endure faithfully for the sake of Christ (1 Corinthians 16:10; 1 Thessalonians 5:13; 1 Timothy 4:15-16).
Nevertheless, true workers for God do not seek praise for themselves. They are not like hawkers trying to sell goods for their own gain. They work from pure motives, avoid any suggestion of deceit or dishonesty, and are concerned only for the glory of God and the well-being of others (2 Corinthians 2:17; 2 Corinthians 4:1-2; 2 Corinthians 4:5; 2 Corinthians 4:15; Galatians 1:10; 1 Thessalonians 2:3-8; see SERVANT; STEWARD).
If people spend their whole time in the service of the church, they have the right to be supported financially by those who benefit from their work. They might also receive support from those who receive no direct benefit from their work (1618616941_55; 2 Corinthians 11:8-9; Galatians 6:6; Galatians 6:10; Philippians 4:15-16; 1 Timothy 5:17-18). Some, however, may choose at times to earn their living by doing secular work, to avoid creating misunderstanding or financial hardship in a particular church (Acts 18:3; 1 Corinthians 9:12-15; Psalms 111:6-93; 2 Thessalonians 3:8-9).
The works of God
The Bible speaks of the works of God as evidence of his power, love, faithfulness, righteousness, majesty and almost all other aspects of the divine character (Psalms 111:2-8). Always God’s works are a cause for people everywhere to worship and praise him (Psalms 92:5; Psalms 103:22).
Frequently the Bible refers to God’s works in relation to creation (Genesis 2:2; Psalms 8:3; Psalms 19:1; Psalms 104:24; Hebrews 1:10) and the control of history (Psalms 46:8-9; Psalms 66:3; Psalms 107:24; Psalms 111:6; Isaiah 26:11-13; Revelation 15:2-4; Isaiah 28:21). In particular, it speaks of God’s works with reference to his miracles (Deuteronomy 11:3-7; Judges 2:7; John 9:1-7; see MIRACLES). But no matter in what context it speaks of the works of God, those works are usually concerned with two main themes, judgment and salvation (Psalms 77:11-15; 1618616941_57; Isaiah 28:21; Acts 13:41; Philippians 1:6; see GOD).
With the coming of Jesus, God’s works were in a special sense done through him. Those works were clear evidence, particularly to the Jews, that Jesus had been sent by the Father (John 5:36) and that through Jesus people could come to the Father (John 14:6; John 14:10-11). But most of the Jews rejected the evidence (John 5:37-38; John 10:25-26; John 10:37-38). They were stubbornly resistant to Jesus’ claims (John 10:32-33), and his miraculous works only roused them to greater opposition (John 10:20; John 10:31; John 10:39).
Jesus, however, did not turn back from his task. He continued to do his Father’s work till that work was finished (John 4:34; John 5:17; John 9:4; John 15:24; John 17:4; John 19:30). Through faith in him and his finished work, people can have forgiveness of sins and eternal life (John 6:28-29; John 20:30-31; see JESUS CHRIST).
Charles Spurgeon's Illustration Collection - Interest: in Holy Work to be Maintained
It is of the utmost importance to keep up our interest in the holy work in which we are engaged, for the moment our interest flags the work will become wearisome. Humboldt says that the copper-coloured native of central America, far more accustomed than the European traveller to the burning heat of the climate, yet complains more when upon a journey, because he is stimulated by no interest. The same Indian who would complain, when in botanising he was loaded with a box full of plants, would row his canoe fourteen or fifteen hours together against the current without a murmur, because he wished to return to his family. Labours of love are light. Routine is a hard master. Love much, and you can do much. Impossibilities disappear when zeal is fervent.
Hastings' Dictionary of the New Testament - Work
This article deals with the special sense in which the word is employed in the NT of the office of the preacher of the gospel. (For other senses see Business, Labour.) Popular opinion tends to regard spiritual ministry as the spontaneous activity of a certain temperament requiring no particular effort. The teaching of the NT directly contradicts this notion. It declares that it is only by systematic and severe labour that we can win men for God. This is borne out by the terms used in the apostolic writings. In the Fourth Gospel we hear the Lord speaking of the fulfilling of the ‘work’ which He had been sent to accomplish (John 17:4). This word (ἔργον) was taken up by the Church and applied to the task set before its evangelists. The mission entrusted to Saul and Barnabas is described as ‘the work’ to which they received a vocation from the Holy Spirit (Acts 13:2; Acts 14:26).
In the Pauline Epistles this work is said to be ‘the work of the Lord,’ i.e. the definite service which Christ lays upon believers of proclaiming the gospel. All the faithful are called to this. The special charismata of some are bestowed in order that they may be used for ‘the perfecting of the saints, unto the work of ministering’ (Ephesians 4:12). Abundant activity in this office follows a firm belief in the Resurrection (1 Corinthians 15:58). In 1 Corinthians 3:10-17 the ‘work’ is likened to a building which must be built so as to stand the test of the fire of judgment. It is therefore natural to speak of the Christian minister as the ἐργάτης whose ideal is to produce nothing which will shame him (2 Timothy 2:15). The dignity of his vocation is expressed in the highest terms when he is named a ‘fellow-worker with God’ (1 Corinthians 3:9, 2 Corinthians 6:1; cf. 1 Thessalonians 3:2 RVm ). The spirit in which the work is to be done is denoted by another word, κόπος, which is ‘almost a technical word for Christian work’ (H. B. Swete, Apocalypse, London, 1907, p. 25), and signifies the weariness which attends the effort required of those who undertake this work. It suggests the idea of an athlete undergoing great fatigue (see J. B. Lightfoot, Apostolic Fathers, London, 1891, p. 161). With its cognate verb St. Paul uses it in this connexion some twenty times. The leaders of the Church are distinguished by it (1 Thessalonians 5:12). It must be endured by those who would be teachers of the Word (1 Timothy 5:17). The Apostle himself had experienced it to the full (1 Corinthians 15:10, 2 Corinthians 11:23).

Decorative work capping the two free-standing columns flanking the entrance to Solomon's Temple (1Kings 7:19,1 Kings 7:22 ). These columns were likely inspired by Egyptian columns with a lotus motif. The brim of the molten sea was perhaps also inspired by the shape of the lotus blossom (1 Kings 7:26 ). See Temple.

Part of the decoration of the pillars of the Temple (1 Kings 7:17 ). The Hebrew word also denotes a lattice (2 Kings 1:2 ) or net (Job 18:8 ). With reference to the pillars of the Temple, it thus denotes a criss-crossed design.
Charles Spurgeon's Illustration Collection - Personal Work
I once heard a story of an American, who declared he could fight the whole British army, and when he was asked how he could draw so long a bow as that, he said, 'Why, this is what I would do: I know I am the best swordsman in the world, so I would go and challenge one Britisher, and kill him; then take another, and kill him. Thus,' said he, 'I only want time enough and I would kill the whole British army.' It was a ridiculous boast, but there is something in it which I could not bring out so well in any other way. If we want to conquer the world for the Lord Jesus Christ, rest assured we must do it in the Yankee's fashion; we must take men one by one, and these ones must be brought to Christ, or otherwise the great mass must remain untouched. Do not imagine for a moment that you are going to convert a nation at once; you are to convert the men of that nation, one by one, through the power of God's Holy Spirit. It is not for you to suit your machinery, and arrange your plans for the moving of a mass as such, you must look to the salvation of the units.

Baker's Evangelical Dictionary of Biblical Theology - Work
For contemporary humanity the meaning and character of work have been divorced from religion, being largely shaped by secular ideologies associated with Marxism and capitalism. This is radically different from the biblical concept of work, which is laden with theological significance. The expenditure of physical and mental energy to produce sustenance and culture, the activity that engages most of humanity's population and time (Augustine), has a profoundly religious inspiration and direction in both Testaments. The biblical evidence indicates that human beings must be guided by God's will in their work. Without this guidance, work will ultimately be useless.
The Old Testament. Creation . All human work is based on the analogy of God's work in creating the natural world as classically described in Genesis 1-2 . God is depicted as effortlessly expending energy to create a world of exquisite beauty from nothing. Material, temporal, and spatial reality are made in a sequence of six days. The text climaxes with a poetic depiction of the creation of humanity, made in the image and likeness of God (Genesis 1:27 ). This poetic climax, as well as God's survey of his completed creation (1:31), captures something of the ecstatic joy in the Creator's mind evoked by the splendor of his work. On the seventh day, God rests from his work, celebrating his accomplishments.
In this creation text human beings are given a mandate to work, which is intimately related to their identity as the image of God (Genesis 1:26 ). As image bearers, the human race is to work by ruling and serving the creation. As God has shown his transcendence to the created order through his work, human beings replicate the divine likeness by having dominion over the creation (Genesis 1:26-28 ). Work has therefore an extremely wide scope, but the theological point is central: human beings are called to imitatio dei (imitation of God) through work. It is not to be drudgery but glory. The assumption, of course, is that work will be done in response to the divine will.
Whereas the first creation narrative presents a comprehensive vision of God's activity, the second (2:4-25) focuses on the creation of humanity, God's supreme work. The Creator is depicted as a potter and a builder crafting the human race. A poetic climax also concludes this account, when woman is created (2 Thessalonians 3:6-13 ). One of the prime tasks God gives Adam and Eve is the cultivation of the earth and the classification of the species of wildlife (Mark 1:14-200 ).
The creation texts confer a sanctity on work. God is involved in work, being its raison d'etre. Human beings have the responsibility and privilege of virtually replicating the works of God. The human race co-creates and co-rules with God as it replenishes the earth and exercises dominion over the universe. This attitude is fundamentally different from that found in the ancient Near East. In creation texts associated with Israel's neighbors, the divine work is not something to be admired, as creation emerged from either a struggle between the gods (Mesopotamia) or an act of defilement (Egypt—but cf. the Memphite theology). Work was regarded as a dreary burden. In fact, the gods made the human race as slaves to provide relief from the labor of running the universe (Mesopotamia). Although human beings are regarded as the divine image in some Egyptian texts, they are essentially "the cattle of the god" (Merikare).
The Fall . Sin transformed human work. The judgment of God affects the material world: Adam's efforts to extract a living from it is met by its resistance and his sweat (Genesis 3:17-19 ). The perspective of humanity has also been altered. The first couple's eyes have been opened to the reality of evil (Genesis 3:7 ) and closed to the reality of God's works and God's will. That is why they attempt to hide in creation from the Creator; it also explains how their firstborn son, Cain, can destroy God's climactic work, the image of God in the face of his brother (Matthew 4:1-116 ).
In the subsequent chapters of Genesis some scholars detect a critique of the first builders of civilization. This analysis is false. Both Cain and Abel have dominion over the earth as farmer and shepherd respectively. God does not prefer one occupation to another; the issue is obedience. Furthermore, the descendants of Cain may be known for their accomplishments in the field of human endeavoragriculture, metallurgy, music, and artbut that is all they are known for. They have lost themselves in their work, having defined themselves by their achievements. The Cainite genealogy concludes with the dark portrait of Lamech singing his "song of the sword" (Genesis 4:23-24 ). Early technological skills developed without reference to God produce instruments of death (cf. Genesis 12:7-829 ). In the absence of the knowledge of God's works, human effort is directed toward death instead of life.
The main predeluvian human activity is social violence (Genesis 6:11,13 ). The creation that had been declared repeatedly "good" at the beginning is now full of corruption and strife. That which once evoked ecstatic joy in the heart of God now wounds him with grief (Genesis 6:6 ).
At the same time, the Sethite genealogy (chap. 5) concludes with Noah, who is chosen by God to use human effort for the divine purpose. This work must have seemed absurd to his contemporaries, but it provided redemption for creation. Human work, placed not at the service of self but at the service of God, saves. Noah the humble, obedient servant of God contrasts sharply with the heroic warriors of that time.
After the flood, human beings are again given dominion over their natural environment, but the effects of the fall into sin remain. Noah becomes intoxicated with the products of his viticulture, which leads to sexual sin. As a result, slavery is imposed as a curse on the descendants of Ham. The human race uses its capacities and energies to build a huge towera monument to human pride and ambition (Genesis 11:1-9 ). Babelhuman work at the service of selfbecomes a symbol for chaos and judgment as God sends linguistic confusion to thwart this collective, autonomous venture.
The Patriarchs . God's gracious work in calling Abraham occurs against the backdrop of the failure of human work to achieve salvation (Genesis 12:1-3 ). Abraham and Sarah represent the beginning of God's new saving work in history, designed to bring a blessing on the entire universe through their seed. Abraham's work is simply to believe and obey, to accept as gifts the new relationship with God as well as the promises of land and descendants. Instead of building a tower to heaven, Abraham and his family are constantly building altars, thereby demonstrating God's dominion over the new land (1618616941_3 ; 21:33 ; 26:25 ; 28:18 ).
Egypt . The story of Joseph (Genesis 37-50 ) describes Israel's entry into Egypt. Devoted to God, Joseph is blessed in everything he does, whether living at home, serving in slavery, or working in prison. This blessing eventually elevates him to the top administrative position in Egypt whereby he is able to use his skill to save not only the Egyptians but many peoples from natural disaster. Joseph is certainly a paradigm for a person who is devoted to God. Primarily a servant of God, he has success in various "callings."
After a significant period of time, the Israelites are oppressed by the Egyptians (Exodus 1-3 ), who teach them the harsh meaning of slavery as they are forced to build earthly cities for the Pharaoh. Work has been transformed into something demonic, as Israel groans under the backbreaking burden of manual labor. No human effort can provide relief. In such an oppressive situation, Israel experiences liberation through the works of God alone.
Sinai . At Mount Sinai Israel becomes a nation and is given a constitution and law (Exodus 19-24 ). The divine intent expressed in the Law demonstrates Israel's attitude toward work. Slaves were to be treated with respect and Israelite slaves were to be freed every seven years (Exodus 21:1-11,26-27 ). Runaway slaves would be given refuge (Deuteronomy 23:15-16 ). Property would return to its original owner every fifty years (Leviticus 25:8-13 ). The poor were not to be overlooked in the increase of wealth (Deuteronomy 24:17-22 ). Wages were to paid equitably and promptly (Deuteronomy 24:14-15 ). Interest was not to be charged on loans made to Israelites (Genesis 2:235 ; Deuteronomy 23:19-20 ). Moreover, collateral for loans had to be returned to poverty-stricken individuals at the end of the day, if this meant deprivation of clothing during the cool night (Exodus 22:26-27 ).
The major presuppositions for this concern are found in the Decalogue. Exodus states that the Sabbath command is based on the pattern of divine work and rest in Genesis (Exodus 20:8-11 ). The Israelites are thus to image God in their alternation of work and rest. The parallel command in the Decalogue of Deuteronomy gives a different reason for the observance of the seventh day (Deuteronomy 5:12-15 ). Israel is to observe the Sabbath by specifically remembering the oppressive Egyptian experience where she was "worked to death." The stress is more on rest as redemption from the tyranny of work. As God delivered Israel from labor with his redemptive work, Israel is to do the same for those who live in her borders every week. Even animals and the land are to experience rest from work.
Sabbatical cycles are not only weekly but yearly. The seventh year is to be a time of rest for the land and release of Israelite slaves (Exodus 23:10-12 ). A cycle of seven sabbatical years ends in the year of Jubilee, not only a time of rest and liberty, but a time of debt cancellation and the return of property to its original owners (Leviticus 25 ). The divine will clearly places a limit on work, which can easily become harsh and oppressive in a fallen world. While human achievement is important, it must serve the divine purpose. Israel is to be reminded constantly that God is the Lord of people, time, land, and work. When Israel places work under divine lordship, human beings again begin to exercise dominion of the creation as God intended for them.
The results of work are clearly brought within the religious sphere. The law of the tithe is a recognition that the strength to work comes from God alone, as do the rewards of working the land. Moreover, it is also a recognition that the fruits of work must be shared with the less fortunate, particularly the foreigner, the widow, and the orphan (Deuteronomy 14:22-29 ; 26:12-15 ).
Israel constructs a tabernacle for the divine presence, to bring as it were, heaven to earth (Exodus 25-40 ). This symbol of God at the center of life is crucial for human work. When Israel is on the verge of entering the promised land, she is reminded through the Shema (Deuteronomy 6:4-9 ) to keep God at the center of her existence in all that she does. God's love is not only to be placed between the eyes (i.e., to dominate vision); it is also to be placed on the hands (i.e., to motivate action). The options for possible vocations are unlimited, given these theological principles.
The gift of the land will mean many blessings to the nation, but primarily they will be the ability to build houses, plant vineyards, plow fields, and mine for ore. With God at the center, the work of Israel's hands will overflow with blessing. As well as the blessing, however, there is also the constant dangerto idolize the results of work, prosperity, and consequently assume that human strength alone or the fertility gods of the pagan neighbors are responsible for the abundance (Deuteronomy 8:17 ; 32:15 ). This view is fatal for if the doxological center is lost, all of Israel's work will be futile: all their hard work would do you no good, because their land will not produce crops and the trees will not bear their fruit (Leviticus 26:20 ; Deuteronomy 28:33 ).
Conquest and Kingdom . The promised land is recognized as God's gift to Israel, yet she must work for it. If the nation does not cooperate with God in taking the land, death in the wilderness is the result (Numbers 13-14 ). A generation later, the conquest of Jericho is a dramatic example of trust in God's work (Joshua 6-7 ). The city is taken on the Sabbath, when Israel encircles it seven times. The walls of the city come crashing down as a result of the divine action. Israel fights but God also fights for her. The entire conquest is a result of God working for Israel (147:10-1106 ). She takes cities that she did not build, vineyards that she did not plant, fields that she did not plow (Joshua 24:13 ). Israel's response is to use the gift as God's steward. Israel is like a new Adam and Eve entering the paradisical garden.
Psalms . The community at worship also has a vision of human work. Humanity is assigned the task of work by the Creator (104:23). This means taking God-like dominion over the natural order (8). But work that is done without a focus on God is like building a house in vain or guarding a city uselessly (127:1-2). The strength of the strong and mighty is useless without trust in Yahweh (20:7-8; 33:16-19; 1618616941_9). Given the transience and impermanence of human life, God must be implored to make any human achievement last (90:12,16-17).
Wisdom Literature . The primary presupposition of the Wisdom books is that God has made the world according to a certain pattern. Work and the attitude toward work are important themes. Laziness leads to poverty and even death (Malachi 3:6-12 ; 21:25 ). Diligence, on the other hand, results in life (Proverbs 13:4 ; 12:11 ). The life of crime, a shortcut to prosperity, is condemned as moral suicide (Proverbs 1:9-20 ; 16:8 ). In everything it is to be remembered that it is the Lord's blessing that produces true wealth; hard work cannot make a person any richer (Proverbs 10:22 ).
While Proverbs presents a positive perspective on work, Ecclesiastes has a more negative outlook. As a result of God's curse on human life, it is virtually impossible to detect God's work. Therefore human work can be characterized as toil. Death introduces an element of futility into human life, even making work seem useless (2:18-20). What can be gained from work if death erases one's accomplishments (3:9)? In spite of all our work, there is nothing we can take with us. We labor trying to take the wind, and what do we get? Grief (5:15). It is also observed that envy and greed supply the motivation for the work of many (4:4; 6:7). If one has a more noble religious inspiration, there can be a certain amount of pleasure: "nothing is better for a man under the sun than to eat and drink and be glad. Then joy will accompany him in his work all the days of the life God has given him under the sun" (8:15).
The Prophets . The prophets possessed great social consciousness. The consequences of selfishness and idolatry are always human oppression, as the powerless become trampled in the mad stampede for wealth. Amos describes the affluent in his days as crushing the poor (2:7), and anxiously waiting for the Sabbath to finish so that they can overcharge their poor customers (8:5). Micah (2:2) characterizes the rich as seizing fields and homes whenever they want. But God is not a passive onlooker. The prophets announce his judgment, his "strange work" in history (Isaiah 28:21 ). As a result all human effort and work without him as the focus ends up being wasted.
After the exile, the Israelites who returned soon forgot the importance of God. They became preoccupied with their own work and neglected the building of the temple. Consequently their labors suffered (Haggai 1:2-11 ), as they were not able to provide for themselves (cf. Proverbs 10:4 ). After the completion of the temple, Israel became prosperous until the religious focus was lost again (Malachi).
This vision of God's work at the center of human life, and the blessing of human work that results, is magnificently illustrated in the prophets' eschatological vision. At the end of time the temple will be the focus of life as all the nations will travel to Jerusalem. There they will be instructed from Yahweh's Torah and the consequence will be the transformation of human work. Instruments one used for destructive purposes such as war will be changed into ones used for productive purposes like agriculture (Isaiah 2:1-4 ; Micah 4:1-6 ). There will be universal shalom and the river of God's life will flow from the temple and heal all the nations (Ezekiel 47 ).
This clearly indicates that the important point in the Old Testament about work is not a particular vocation; any human work is a life-enhancing blessing when it is controlled by God.
The New Testament . John the Baptist was sent to prepare the way for Jesus. In light of God's coming great work to judge and to save, John called people to repentance. This meant that everyone had to change his or her action in the light of the imminent divine action. Those whose professions were notorious for graft and extortion were not told to leave their Jobs, but to change their behavior (Luke 3:12-14 ). The problem was not with the profession but with the human heart.
Jesus is equipped for his work with the power of the Holy Spirit. As the new Adam he is also tested by Satan, where the issues of allegiance and work are repeatedly stressed (1618616941_52 ). Will Jesus use his power to make bread from stones in order to satisfy his own hunger? Will he push God to the test to be recognized as his unique messenger? Will he seek power illegitimately to accomplish his mission? The answers are negative. Jesus will only do his Father's will. As such, Jesus, the new Adamthe divine image restoredsets the standard for any human activity. Work must be done in obedience to God's will. If it is not, it becomes quickly corrupted by selfishness (v. 3), the desire for human recognition (v. 6), and power (vv. 8-9).
In order for human beings to be restored to their rightful place as masters of the universe instead of its prisoners, individuals must trust in Jesus Christ, God's work, and not in themselves. Some must leave their professions to become apostles (1618616941_17 ; 2:13-17 ). All must abandon an old mode of existence in which the divine will was not central. This means a totally new attitude toward work. All labor must be motivated by love of God and neighbor. Only then will human work be free from anxiety, idolatry, laziness, and lethargy.
Human existence is fraught with anxiety as a result of the competitive struggle to make a living. The disciples of Jesus are to learn from the created order: birds do not have storehouses and grass does not toil, yet God lavishly provides for such creatures not made in his image! Consequently how much more should disciples work without anxiety, knowing that their loving Father will provide also for them. But this means a radical reorienting of priorities. The focus must be placed on doing God's will above everything else (Matthew 6:33 ). Martha in her frantic preoccupation with domestic preparations has lost the focus; her sister, Mary, has not (Luke 10:38-42 ).
If anxiety characterizes much of human work, so does idolatry. Work and its products become the end and not the means. Jesus condemns this in unequivocal terms with such statements as, "You cannot serve both God and Money" (Matthew 6:24 ). This means that if one's work inhibits one from doing the will of God, it must goit is an idol. Prospective disciples who use their work as an excuse for following Christ are condemned (Luke 14:15-24 ). Moreover, others who ignore the demands of Christ while accumulating possessions are rich fools. They, too, are doomed (Luke 12:13-21 ).
Laziness and lethargy are also possible responses to work. Jesus' parable of the talents implies that refusal to use one's gifts and talents for God is an unacceptable response to his grace (Matthew 25:14-30 ). Discipleship is implied to be a work in itself. Those who abandon Jesus have started plowing and then have looked back (Luke 9:62 ); they have begun to build a tower and not been able to finish (Luke 14:28-30 ). Industry, diligence, and foresight are required.
Jesus announces his message of salvation in terms drawn from the work-a-day world. A sower begins to plant seed (Matthew 13:1-9 ). A merchant discovers a valuable pearl (Matthew 13:45-46 ). A woman mixes yeast with a bushel of flour (Matthew 13:33 ). Fishermen cast out their nets and draw them in (Matthew 13:47-50 ). But most important, God has a Job for everyone to do: he is in the business of hiring the unemployedeven at the last hour! Yet everyone is paid the same wage. To be hired is grace, to work is grace, the wage is grace (Matthew 20:1-16 ). The labor of the law is a back-breaking burden as opposed to the work that Jesus offers (Matthew 11:28-30 ).
The work that is required of the disciples is to do the will of God. If Jesus did divine works, his disciples can do the same as long as they rely on their master (John 14:12 ; 15:5 ). They begin to do these works in the Book of Acts when the church is born. As Jesus was baptized by the Spirit and sent forth as the new Adam, the church is similarly immersed and called forth as a new humanity to do the works of God. Pentecost reverses the curse of Babel. There, as people sang the praises of their own achievements in defiance of God, they could not understand one another as God sent linguistic confusion, which ultimately destroyed their work. At Pentecost, as the Holy Spirit descends, all linguistic barriers are broken down as people hear the mighty works of God in their own languages (Acts 2:11 ). The result is the building of the city of God, a new society whose members meet each other's material as well as spiritual needs (Acts 2:43-47 ). Or, to use a different metaphor, this new community is understood to be the actual body of Christ whose function is to do the will of its head (Christ) on the earth through the power of the Holy Spirit (1 Corinthians 12-14 ). As the different body parts work together in harmony, love is demonstrated and the greatest work of God is accomplished (1 Corinthians 13 ).
The dynamic of love for God and each other shapes the church's perspective on its members' occupations and social positions. Everything is evaluated in terms of God's actions in Christ. Criminal behavior is totally unacceptable. Former thieves must start working in order to earn an honest living and help the poor (Ephesians 4:28 ). Similarly, laziness is inadmissible for a Christian (1 Thessalonians 4:11-12 ; 1618616941_16 ). All employees must serve God in their Jobs, not just their human employers; and the latter must serve God in the way they treat their employees (Ephesians 6:5-9 ). Slaves and their masters can even be called "brothers" in Christ (Galatians 3:28 ; Phl 15-16 ). The new relationship with each other transforms perceptions of occupations and motives for work. Believers can even be said to be slaves, whose tools are the wash basin and towel (John 13 ). Hostility and alienation between labor and management are dealt a death blow with the cross (Ephesians 2:16 ). Human beings are being restored to the divine image in order to exercise dominion over the creation (Ephesians 4:23-24 ). Since death has been defeated, no work is done in vain (1 Corinthians 15:58 ).
The New Testament concludes with an unparalleled vision of God alive and active in history, bringing the historical process to consummation. In the Book of Revelation God's deeds are repeatedly celebrated. The cheap imitations of the satanic anti-Trinity (Satan, the beast, and the false prophet) are deceptive and destructive. Babylon, the creation of the latter, where people marked by the image of the beast work for selfish profit, perishes from the earth (Revelation 18 ). Jerusalem, the creation of God, where people work for their Redeemer and Savior, lasts for eternity. A return to Eden has finally been accomplished, where the new Adams and Eves, crowned with glory and honor, are restored finally to their rightful positions as kings and queens of the new creation, God's resplendent images, who will exercise dominion through service and love (22:1-5).

Vine's Expository Dictionary of OT Words - Work
A. Verbs.
Pâ‛al (פָּעַל, Strong's #6466), “to do, work.” Common to both ancient and modern Hebrew, this word is used in modern Hebrew in the sense of “to work, to act, to function.” Found only 57 times in the Hebrew Old Testament, it is used primarily as a poetic synonym for the much more common verb ‘ashah, “to do, to make.” Thus, almost half the occurrences of this verb are in the Book of Psalms. Pâ‛al is used for the first time in the Old Testament in the Song of Moses: “… The place, O Lord, which thou hast made for thee to dwell in …” (Exod. 15:17). There is no distinction in the use of this verb, whether God or man is its subject. In Ps. 15:2 man is the subject: “He that walketh uprightly and worketh righteousness, and speaketh the truth in his heart.”
‛Âśâh (עָשָׂה, Strong's #6213), “to make, do, create.” This root also occurs in Moabite and Phoenician (only in a proper name). It occurs in early extra-biblical Hebrew, Hebrew, and about 2,625 times in the Bible (in all periods). It should be distinguished from the second sense of ‛âśâh, “to squeeze.”
In its primary sense this verb represents the production of various objects. This includes making images and idols: “Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image …” (Exod. 20:4). The verb can mean to make something into something: “And the residue thereof he maketh a god, even his graven image …” (Isa. 44:17). In an extended use this verb means to prepare a meal, a banquet, or even an offering: “And he [1] took butter, and milk, and the calf which he had dressed, and set it before them [2] …” (Gen. 18:8).
In Gen. 12:5 ‛âśâh means “to acquire” (as it often does): “And Abram took Sarai his wife, and Lot his brother’s son, and all their substance that they had gathered, and the souls that they had gotten in Haran.…” The “souls that they had gotten” probably were slaves.
Used in association with “Sabbath” or the name of other holy days, this word signifies “keeping” or “celebrating”: “All the congregation of Israel shall keep it [3]” (Exod. 12:47). In a related sense the word means “to spend” a day: “For who knoweth what is good for man in this life, all the days of his vain life which he spendeth as a shadow?” (Eccl. 6:12).
Depending upon its object, ‛âśâh has several other nuances within the general concept of producing some product. For example, with the object “book” the verb means “to write”: “… Of making many books there is no end …” (Eccl. 12:12). The Bible also uses this word of the process of war: “These made war with Bera king of Sodom …” (Gen. 14:2). Sometimes the word represents an action: “And Joshua made peace with them, and made a league with them …” (Josh. 9:15). “To make a mourning” is to observe it: “… And he [4] made a mourning for his father seven days” (Gen. 50:10). With “name” the verb means “to gain prominence and fame”: “Go to, let us build us a city and a tower, whose top may reach unto heaven; and let us make us a name …” (Gen. 11:4). With the word “workmanship” the word signifies “to work”: “And I have filled him with the spirit of God … , and in all manner of workmanship, … to work in gold, and in silver, and in brass” (Exod. 31:3-4).
‛Âśâh may represent the relationship of an individual to another in his action or behavior, in the sense of what one does. So Pharaoh asks Abram: “What is this that thou hast done unto me?” (Gen. 12:18). Israel pledged: “All that the Lord hath said will we do, and be obedient” (Exod. 24:7). With the particle le the verb signifies inflicting upon another some act or behavior: “Then Abimelech called Abraham, and said unto him, What hast thou done unto us?” (Gen. 20:9). With the particle ’im the word may mean “to show,” or “to practice” something toward someone. The emphasis here is on an ongoing mutual relationship between two parties obligating them to a reciprocal act: “O Lord God of my master Abraham, I pray thee, send me good speed this day, and show kindness unto my master Abraham” (Gen. 24:12). In Gen. 26:29 ‛âśâh appears twice in the sense “to practice toward”: “That thou wilt do us no harm, as we have not touched thee, and as we have done unto thee nothing but good.…”
Used absolutely this verb sometimes means “to take action”: “Let Pharaoh do this, and let him appoint officers over the land …” (Gen. 41:34). In the Hebrew ‛âśâh has no object in this passage—it is used absolutely. Used in this manner it may also signify “to be active”: “She seeketh wool, and flax, and worketh willingly with her hands” (Prov. 31:13). In 1 Chron. 28:10 the verb (used absolutely) means “to go to work,” to go about doing a task: “Take heed now; for the Lord hath chosen thee to build a house for the sanctuary: be strong, and do it.”
This verb used of plants signifies “bringing forth.” In Gen. 1:11 it means “to bear” fruit: “… And the fruit tree [5] fruit after his kind.…” In another nuance this verb represents what a plant does in producing grain: “… It hath no stalk: the bud shall yield no meal …” (Hos. 8:7). The word signifies the production of branches, too: “It was planted in a good soil by great waters, that it might bring forth branches, and that it might bear fruit, that it might be a goodly vine” (Ezek. 17:8).
‛Âśâh is used theologically of man’s response to divine commands. God commanded Noah: “Make thee an ark of gopher wood …” (Gen. 6:14). Similarly Israel was commanded “to construct” a sanctuary for God (Exod. 25:8). The manipulation of the blood of the sacrifice is what the priest is to do (Lev. 4:20). The entire cultic activity is described by ‛âśâh: “As he hath done this day, so the Lord hath commanded to do …” (Lev. 8:34). Thus in his acts a man demonstrates his inward commitment and, therefore, his relationship to God (Deut. 4:13). Doing God’s commands brings life upon a man (Lev. 18:5).
This verb is also applied specifically to all aspects of divine acts and actions. In the general sense of His actions toward His people Israel, the word first occurs in Gen. 12:2, where God promises “to make” Abram a great nation. * is also the most general Old Testament expression for divine creating. Every aspect of this activity is described by this word: “For in six days the Lord made heaven and earth …” (Exod. 20:11). This is its meaning in its first biblical occurrence: “And God made the firmament, and divided the waters which were under the firmament from the waters which were above the firmament …” (Gen. 1:7). This word is used of God’s acts effecting the entire created world and individual men (Exod. 20:6). God’s acts and words perfectly correspond, so that what He says He does, and what He does is what He has said (Gen. 21:1; Ps. 115:3).
B. Noun.
Ma‛ăśeh (מַעֲשֶׂה, 4639), “work; deed; labor; behavior.” This noun is used 235 times in biblical Hebrew. Lamech, Noah’s father, in expressing his hope for a new world, used the noun for the first time in the Old Testament: “And he called his name Noah, saying, This same shall comfort us concerning our work and toil of our hands, because of the ground which the Lord hath cursed” (Gen. 5:29). The word is scattered throughout the Old Testament and all types of literature.
The basic meaning of ma‛ăśeh is “work.” Lamech used the word to signify agricultural labor (Gen. 5:29). The Israelites were commanded to celebrate the Festival of the Firstfruits, as it signified the blessing of God upon their “labors” (Exod. 23:16). It is not to be limited to this. As the word is the most general word for “work,” it may be used to refer to the “work” of a skillful craftsman (Exod. 26:1), a weaver (26:36), a jeweler (28:11), and a perfumer (30:25). The finished product of the worker is also known as ma‛ăśeh: “And in the uppermost basket there was of all manner of bakemeats [6] for Pharaoh.…” (Gen. 40:17); “And Moses and Eleazar the priest took the gold of them, even all wrought jewels” [7] (Num. 31:51). The artisan plied his craft during the work week, known in Hebrew as “the days of work,” and rested on the Sabbath: “Thus saith the Lord God; The gate of the inner court that looketh toward the east shall be shut the six working days; but on the sabbath it shall be opened, and in the day of the new moon it shall be opened” (Ezek. 46:1; cf. Exod. 23:12).
The phrase “work of one’s hands” signifies the worthlessness of the idols fashioned by human hands: “Asshur shall not save us; we will not ride upon horses: neither will we say any more to the work of our hands, Ye are our gods: for in thee the fatherless findeth mercy” (Hos. 14:3). However, the prayer of the psalmist includes the request that the “works” of God’s people might be established: “And let the beauty of the Lord our God be upon us: and establish thou the work of our hands upon us; yea, the work of our hands establish thou it” (Ps. 90:17). Since the righteous work out God’s work and are a cause of God’s rejoicing, “the glory of the Lord shall endure for ever: the Lord shall rejoice in his works” (Ps. 104:31).
In addition to “work,” ma‛ăśeh also denotes “deed,” “practice,” or “behavior.” Joseph asked his brothers, accused of having taken his cup of divination: “What deed is this that ye have done? wot ye not that such a man as I can certainly divine?” (Gen. 44:15). The Israelites were strongly commanded not to imitate the grossly immoral behavior of the Canaanites and the surrounding nations: “After the doings of the land of Egypt, wherein ye dwelt, shall ye not do: and after the doings of the land of Canaan, whither I bring you, shall ye not do: neither shall ye walk in their ordinances” (Lev. 18:3; cf. Exod. 23:24). However, the Israelites did not listen to the warning, and they “were mingled among the heathen, and learned their works.… Thus were they defiled with their own works, and went a whoring with their own inventions” (Ps. 106:35, 39).
Thus far, we have dealt with ma‛ăśeh from man’s perspective. The word may have a positive connotation (“work, deed”) as well as a negative (“corrupt practice”). The Old Testament also calls us to celebrate the “work” of God. The psalmist was overwhelmed with the majesty of the Lord, as he looked at God’s “work” of creation: “When I consider thy heavens, the work of thy fingers, the moon and the stars, which thou hast ordained” (Ps. 8:3; cf. 19:1; 102:25). The God of Israel demonstrated His love by His mighty acts of deliverance on behalf of Israel: “And Israel served the Lord all the days of Joshua, and all the days of the elders that [8] lived Joshua, and which had known all the works of the Lord, that he had done for Israel” (Josh. 24:31; cf. versions).
All of God’s “works” are characterized by faithfulness to His promises and covenant: “For the word of the Lord is right; and all his works are done in truth” (Ps. 33:4).
Ma‛ăśeh is translated in the Greek as ergon (“deed; action; manifestation”) and poiema (“what is made; work; creation”). English translations are work (KJV, RSV, NASB, NIV), “doing” (KJV and RSV), “practice” (NASB, NIV)

Work - In the original languages of the Bible, the word ‘work’ had a broad meaning. It was often used of action or behaviour in general (Psalms 9:16; Amos 8:7; Ephesians 2:8-9; 2 Timothy 1:9; see GOOD WorkS). Its specific usages may be grouped into three main categories, namely, ordinary physical Work, particular service for God, and the Works of God himself. ...
Physical Work...
From the beginning God intended people to Work. It is not Work that is the result of sin, but the pain and suffering that result from Work in a world dominated by sin. Work, instead of bringing physical pleasure, brought pain and hardship (Genesis 3:16-19; Ecclesiastes 2:22-23). ...
Work is part of God’s plan for the proper functioning of human life. God desires that people find dignity and enjoyment in the Work they do. This applies not just to Work that earns money, but to unpaid Work such as household and community tasks (Ecclesiastes 2:24; Ecclesiastes 9:10; cf. They will Work honestly whether or not someone is watching, and will find satisfaction in doing all tasks well, whether or not those tasks are enjoyable (Colossians 3:23; Ephesians 6:6-8; 1 Peter 2:18). The Christian who Works solely for the purpose of getting income is not serving Christ (Matthew 6:24). ...
Although diligence in Work is necessary if a person is to earn a living honestly (James 4:13-17; 2 Thessalonians 3:8), it should not be used as an excuse for selfish ambition. Work becomes a god when a person’s chief concern is to get rich (Matthew 19:21-22; Luke 12:16-21; James 3:16; 1 Thessalonians 2:9; James 5:1-6; see WEALTH). Rest and recreation, both physical and mental, are part of the weekly Work cycle that the Creator intended for his creatures (Genesis 2:3; Exodus 20:8-11; cf. ...
God is not pleased with those who are lazy or who refuse to Work (Proverbs 13:4; Proverbs 18:9; Amos 8:4-689; Luke 3:10-147; 2 Thessalonians 3:6; 2 Thessalonians 3:10-12). But he is sympathetic to people who, for various reasons, are not able to Work, and he expects others to help them (Deuteronomy 15:7-11; Proverbs 17:5; Isaiah 58:7; Luke 14:12-14; Luke 16:19-26; Romans 12:13; Ephesians 4:28). ...
All Workers, whether employers or employees, are entitled to a just reward for their Work. ...
Particular service for God...
Though God’s people must carry out all Work as if it is his Work, they recognize that certain activities are in a special sense God’s Work. All Christians are, to some extent, involved in this Work, for all have been given tasks according to their God-given abilities (1 Corinthians 12:4-7; see GIFTS OF THE SPIRIT). Therefore, all Christians will one day have their Work assessed, as a result of which they will either receive a reward or suffer loss (1 Corinthians 3:10-15; see REWARD). ...
God may set apart certain people for specific kinds of Work (Acts 13:2; Acts 14:26; Ephesians 4:11-13; 1 Timothy 1:18; 1 Timothy 3:1). Such people should do their Work with perseverance, honesty and joy, even though the Work may at times bring them suffering and distress (Romans 15:17-20; 1 Corinthians 15:58; 2 Corinthians 11:24-29; Philippians 2:30). ...
Nevertheless, true Workers for God do not seek praise for themselves. They Work from pure motives, avoid any suggestion of deceit or dishonesty, and are concerned only for the glory of God and the well-being of others (2 Corinthians 2:17; 2 Corinthians 4:1-2; 2 Corinthians 4:5; 2 Corinthians 4:15; Galatians 1:10; 1 Thessalonians 2:3-8; see SERVANT; STEWARD). ...
If people spend their whole time in the service of the church, they have the right to be supported financially by those who benefit from their Work. They might also receive support from those who receive no direct benefit from their Work (1 Corinthians 9:4-7; 2 Corinthians 11:8-9; Galatians 6:6; Galatians 6:10; Philippians 4:15-16; 1 Timothy 5:17-18). Some, however, may choose at times to earn their living by doing secular Work, to avoid creating misunderstanding or financial hardship in a particular church (Acts 18:3; 1 Corinthians 9:12-15; 1 Thessalonians 2:9; 2 Thessalonians 3:8-9). ...
The Works of God...
The Bible speaks of the Works of God as evidence of his power, love, faithfulness, righteousness, majesty and almost all other aspects of the divine character (Psalms 111:2-8). Always God’s Works are a cause for people everywhere to worship and praise him (Psalms 92:5; Psalms 103:22). ...
Frequently the Bible refers to God’s Works in relation to creation (Genesis 2:2; Psalms 8:3; Psalms 19:1; Psalms 104:24; Hebrews 1:10) and the control of history (Psalms 46:8-9; Psalms 66:3; Psalms 107:24; Psalms 111:6; Isaiah 26:11-13; Isaiah 28:21; Revelation 15:2-4). In particular, it speaks of God’s Works with reference to his miracles (Deuteronomy 11:3-7; Judges 2:7; John 9:1-7; see MIRACLES). But no matter in what context it speaks of the Works of God, those Works are usually concerned with two main themes, judgment and salvation (Psalms 77:11-15; Psalms 111:6-9; Isaiah 28:21; Acts 13:41; Philippians 1:6; see GOD). ...
With the coming of Jesus, God’s Works were in a special sense done through him. Those Works were clear evidence, particularly to the Jews, that Jesus had been sent by the Father (John 5:36) and that through Jesus people could come to the Father (John 14:6; John 14:10-11). They were stubbornly resistant to Jesus’ claims (James 5:4), and his miraculous Works only roused them to greater opposition (John 10:20; John 10:31; John 10:39). He continued to do his Father’s Work till that Work was finished (John 4:34; John 5:17; John 9:4; John 15:24; John 17:4; John 19:30). Through faith in him and his finished Work, people can have forgiveness of sins and eternal life (John 6:28-29; John 20:30-31; see JESUS CHRIST)

Work - For contemporary humanity the meaning and character of Work have been divorced from religion, being largely shaped by secular ideologies associated with Marxism and capitalism. This is radically different from the biblical concept of Work, which is laden with theological significance. The biblical evidence indicates that human beings must be guided by God's will in their Work. Without this guidance, Work will ultimately be useless. All human Work is based on the analogy of God's Work in creating the natural world as classically described in Genesis 1-2 . This poetic climax, as well as God's survey of his completed creation (1:31), captures something of the ecstatic joy in the Creator's mind evoked by the splendor of his Work. On the seventh day, God rests from his Work, celebrating his accomplishments. ...
In this creation text human beings are given a mandate to Work, which is intimately related to their identity as the image of God (Genesis 1:26 ). As image bearers, the human race is to Work by ruling and serving the creation. As God has shown his transcendence to the created order through his Work, human beings replicate the divine likeness by having dominion over the creation (Genesis 1:26-28 ). Work has therefore an extremely wide scope, but the theological point is central: human beings are called to imitatio dei (imitation of God) through Work. The assumption, of course, is that Work will be done in response to the divine will. ...
Whereas the first creation narrative presents a comprehensive vision of God's activity, the second (2:4-25) focuses on the creation of humanity, God's supreme Work. ...
The creation texts confer a sanctity on Work. God is involved in Work, being its raison d'etre. Human beings have the responsibility and privilege of virtually replicating the Works of God. In creation texts associated with Israel's neighbors, the divine Work is not something to be admired, as creation emerged from either a struggle between the gods (Mesopotamia) or an act of defilement (Egypt—but cf. Work was regarded as a dreary burden. Sin transformed human Work. The first couple's eyes have been opened to the reality of evil (Genesis 3:7 ) and closed to the reality of God's Works and God's will. That is why they attempt to hide in creation from the Creator; it also explains how their firstborn son, Cain, can destroy God's climactic Work, the image of God in the face of his brother (Genesis 4:8 ). They have lost themselves in their Work, having defined themselves by their achievements. In the absence of the knowledge of God's Works, human effort is directed toward death instead of life. This Work must have seemed absurd to his contemporaries, but it provided redemption for creation. Human Work, placed not at the service of self but at the service of God, saves. Babelhuman Work at the service of selfbecomes a symbol for chaos and judgment as God sends linguistic confusion to thwart this collective, autonomous venture. God's gracious Work in calling Abraham occurs against the backdrop of the failure of human Work to achieve salvation (Genesis 12:1-3 ). Abraham and Sarah represent the beginning of God's new saving Work in history, designed to bring a blessing on the entire universe through their seed. Abraham's Work is simply to believe and obey, to accept as gifts the new relationship with God as well as the promises of land and descendants. Devoted to God, Joseph is blessed in everything he does, whether living at home, serving in slavery, or Working in prison. Work has been transformed into something demonic, as Israel groans under the backbreaking burden of manual labor. In such an oppressive situation, Israel experiences liberation through the Works of God alone. The divine intent expressed in the Law demonstrates Israel's attitude toward Work. Exodus states that the Sabbath command is based on the pattern of divine Work and rest in Genesis (Exodus 20:8-11 ). The Israelites are thus to image God in their alternation of Work and rest. Israel is to observe the Sabbath by specifically remembering the oppressive Egyptian experience where she was "worked to death. " The stress is more on rest as redemption from the tyranny of Work. As God delivered Israel from labor with his redemptive Work, Israel is to do the same for those who live in her borders every week. Even animals and the land are to experience rest from Work. The divine will clearly places a limit on Work, which can easily become harsh and oppressive in a fallen world. Israel is to be reminded constantly that God is the Lord of people, time, land, and Work. When Israel places Work under divine lordship, human beings again begin to exercise dominion of the creation as God intended for them. ...
The results of Work are clearly brought within the religious sphere. The law of the tithe is a recognition that the strength to Work comes from God alone, as do the rewards of Working the land. Moreover, it is also a recognition that the fruits of Work must be shared with the less fortunate, particularly the foreigner, the widow, and the orphan (Deuteronomy 14:22-29 ; 26:12-15 ). This symbol of God at the center of life is crucial for human Work. With God at the center, the Work of Israel's hands will overflow with blessing. As well as the blessing, however, there is also the constant dangerto idolize the results of Work, prosperity, and consequently assume that human strength alone or the fertility gods of the pagan neighbors are responsible for the abundance (Deuteronomy 8:17 ; 32:15 ). This view is fatal for if the doxological center is lost, all of Israel's Work will be futile: all their hard Work would do you no good, because their land will not produce crops and the trees will not bear their fruit (Leviticus 26:20 ; Deuteronomy 28:33 ). The promised land is recognized as God's gift to Israel, yet she must Work for it. A generation later, the conquest of Jericho is a dramatic example of trust in God's Work (Joshua 6-7 ). The entire conquest is a result of God Working for Israel (Joshua 11:22 ). The community at worship also has a vision of human Work. Humanity is assigned the task of Work by the Creator (104:23). But Work that is done without a focus on God is like building a house in vain or guarding a city uselessly (127:1-2). Work and the attitude toward Work are important themes. In everything it is to be remembered that it is the Lord's blessing that produces true wealth; hard Work cannot make a person any richer (Proverbs 10:22 ). ...
While Proverbs presents a positive perspective on Work, Ecclesiastes has a more negative outlook. As a result of God's curse on human life, it is virtually impossible to detect God's Work. Therefore human Work can be characterized as toil. Death introduces an element of futility into human life, even making Work seem useless (2:18-20). What can be gained from Work if death erases one's accomplishments (3:9)? In spite of all our Work, there is nothing we can take with us. It is also observed that envy and greed supply the motivation for the Work of many (4:4; 6:7). Then joy will accompany him in his Work all the days of the life God has given him under the sun" (8:15). The prophets announce his judgment, his "strange Work" in history (Isaiah 28:21 ). As a result all human effort and Work without him as the focus ends up being wasted. They became preoccupied with their own Work and neglected the building of the temple. ...
This vision of God's Work at the center of human life, and the blessing of human Work that results, is magnificently illustrated in the prophets' eschatological vision. There they will be instructed from Yahweh's Torah and the consequence will be the transformation of human Work. ...
This clearly indicates that the important point in the Old Testament about Work is not a particular vocation; any human Work is a life-enhancing blessing when it is controlled by God. In light of God's coming great Work to judge and to save, John called people to repentance. ...
Jesus is equipped for his Work with the power of the Holy Spirit. As the new Adam he is also tested by Satan, where the issues of allegiance and Work are repeatedly stressed (Matthew 4:1-11 ). Work must be done in obedience to God's will. ...
In order for human beings to be restored to their rightful place as masters of the universe instead of its prisoners, individuals must trust in Jesus Christ, God's Work, and not in themselves. This means a totally new attitude toward Work. Only then will human Work be free from anxiety, idolatry, laziness, and lethargy. The disciples of Jesus are to learn from the created order: birds do not have storehouses and grass does not toil, yet God lavishly provides for such creatures not made in his image! Consequently how much more should disciples Work without anxiety, knowing that their loving Father will provide also for them. ...
If anxiety characterizes much of human Work, so does idolatry. Work and its products become the end and not the means. This means that if one's Work inhibits one from doing the will of God, it must goit is an idol. Prospective disciples who use their Work as an excuse for following Christ are condemned (Luke 14:15-24 ). ...
Laziness and lethargy are also possible responses to Work. Discipleship is implied to be a Work in itself. ...
Jesus announces his message of salvation in terms drawn from the Work-a-day world. To be hired is grace, to Work is grace, the wage is grace (Matthew 20:1-16 ). The labor of the law is a back-breaking burden as opposed to the Work that Jesus offers (Matthew 11:28-30 ). ...
The Work that is required of the disciples is to do the will of God. If Jesus did divine Works, his disciples can do the same as long as they rely on their master (John 14:12 ; 15:5 ). They begin to do these Works in the Book of Acts when the church is born. As Jesus was baptized by the Spirit and sent forth as the new Adam, the church is similarly immersed and called forth as a new humanity to do the Works of God. There, as people sang the praises of their own achievements in defiance of God, they could not understand one another as God sent linguistic confusion, which ultimately destroyed their Work. At Pentecost, as the Holy Spirit descends, all linguistic barriers are broken down as people hear the mighty Works of God in their own languages (Acts 2:11 ). As the different body parts Work together in harmony, love is demonstrated and the greatest Work of God is accomplished (1 Corinthians 13 ). Former thieves must start Working in order to earn an honest living and help the poor (Ephesians 4:28 ). The new relationship with each other transforms perceptions of occupations and motives for Work. Since death has been defeated, no Work is done in vain (1 Corinthians 15:58 ). Babylon, the creation of the latter, where people marked by the image of the beast Work for selfish profit, perishes from the earth (Revelation 18 ). Jerusalem, the creation of God, where people Work for their Redeemer and Savior, lasts for eternity. Goosen, A Theology of Work ; H

Hesychius (27) Illustris, a Writer - Suidas doubts whether he was a Christian on the somewhat precarious ground of his omission of all ecclesiastical writers in his Work on men of learning. His chief Work was a Universal History in six books and in a synoptical form through a period of 1920 years, reaching from Belus, the reputed founder of the Assyrian empire, to the death of Anastasius I. This, as the Work of a contemporary whose official position enabled him to obtain accurate information, must have been of great historical value, and its loss is very much to be regretted. Hesychius also wrote a series of biographical notices of learned men, which, going over very much the same ground as the Work of Diogenes Laertius, has been supposed to be an epitome of the Vitae Philosophorum. This Work has been printed by Meursius (Lugd

Post-Impressionism - ) In the broadest sense, the theory or practice of any of several groups of recent painters, or of these groups taken collectively, whose Work and theories have in common a tendency to reaction against the scientific and naturalistic character of impressionism and neo-impressionism. In a strict sense the term post-impressionism is used to denote the effort at self-expression, rather than representation, shown in the Work of Cezanne, Matisse, etc. They tend to, and sometimes reach, a condition in which both representation and traditional decoration are entirely abolished and a Work of art becomes a purely subjective expression in an arbitrary and personal language

Merit - Martineau, Types of Ethical Theory3 [1] , ii. Here we have two special cases of the use of the conception to consider: (1) its use in the Gospels; (2) the use not only of the idea, but also of the theological term ‘merit’ in reference to the Work of Christ. 2 [1] p. ...
‘Just like a heavenly book-keeper, God reckons and calculates according to a standard quantitative as well as qualitative—here the sum of performances of the law and meritorious Works, there the sum of transgressions and misdeeds’ (Holtzmann, p. ...
The idea of merit, however, does not end with the performance of the Law: it also attaches to ‘good Works,’ i. The principal of these good Works are almsgiving and Works of charity (Weber, p. ...
The teaching of Jesus now proceeds in agreement with the theology of the Pharisees, in so far as He not only continually speaks of the rewarding of our Works by God, but also represents the Kingdom of God itself under the point of view of a reward, which is awarded to the performance of ‘righteousness. ’ We have the general idea of Work and reward in Matthew 6:1-4; Matthew 6:6; Matthew 6:16; Matthew 6:18; Matthew 10:41-42; Matthew 20:1-7; Matthew 24:45-51; Matthew 25:14-28, Mark 9:41, Luke 6:35; Luke 10:7, John 17:1-4. ...
‘The reward belongs to the personality which reveals itself in the Work, not to the performance as such. But it is anticipated in the latter, in so far as we there have a doctrine of Christ’s Work as man, in which ethical standards are applied to the subject. (a) In this doctrine it is above all upon His death that attention is concentrated, as the point in which the character of His saving Work specially appears. [4]. (b) The conception of the Work of Christ is not, however, confined to His death. His Work (John 17:4) includes the manifestation of the Divine name to the disciples (John 17:6), the giving to them of the words received from the Father (John 17:8), the keeping of them from the evil in the world (John 17:12), as well as His final sacrifice (John 17:19). Moreover, it is not only the death of Christ, but His Work throughout His life, that God recognizes in glorifying in turn the Son who has glorified Him (1618616941_37). And, finally, both Mark 10:45 and John 17 imply that the Work of Christ in His life and death is all of a piece; since in both passages, but especially in John 17, there is no break in the way in which the culminating Work of the death is added on to the Work of the life. ...
Summing up our results, we have in the NT the basis of a doctrine of Christ’s merit as the worth to God (and men) of His human Work carried on throughout His life, and culminating in His death. This worth of Christ’s Work is estimated by God along the lines of Christ’s obedience to His will (the Work of Christ being that which the Father has given Him to do (John 4:24; John 17:4). It is recognized by God in the special love with which He regards Christ in the accomplishment of His Work, and outwardly by His exaltation or glorification. It is to be noted, however, that while the position of lordship is viewed as the reward of the Work of Christ, the salvation of men is not viewed in the NT as its direct reward, but rather as its fruit or effect (John 12:24). Christ saves, according to NT conceptions, by His earthly Work, but not by means of it as a quantum which can be detached from His Personality, and rewarded by the salvation of men [5]. Instead of this, we have the conception that through His Work He becomes a saving Personality, or, as Rothe puts it, that through it He ‘qualifies Himself to become a Redeemer’ (Theol. Ethik,2 [1] iii. Our salvation follows from His Work; since the Christ, who lived to minister to men, to make known to them the words which the Father had given Him, and to keep them from the evil, and persevered in His Work to the death in perfect obedience to the will of His Father, thus offering up His life as a sacrifice to God, by this very Work and the Personality achieved through it, exercises a saving authority and influence over men (John 12:32; cf. But the open recognition of Christ’s Work by God in the exaltation of Christ, which begins with the Resurrection, also contributes to His saving power over men (cf. It is at this point that the way in which human salvation can be regarded as the ‘reward’ of the Work of Christ becomes clearest, inasmuch as the exaltation which is His direct reward puts Him in the position to reap the full fruit of His travail in the salvation of souls. What is the Work by which He saves? It is, above all, the revelation of the holy love of God in Christ’s life and death, which moves men at once to faith in God as revealed in Him, and to repentance (μετάνοια, change of mind from love of sin to love of God), and thus brings them into that communion with the Father which is the essential ground of all the blessings of salvation. ...
(d) In the second place, the above definition of the Work of Christ as the revelation of the holy love of God, throws further light upon the ‘reward’ of Christ. We saw that while this meant primarily the recognition of Christ’s Work by God in His exaltation, it involved indirectly the fruit or effect of the Work of Christ, as realized through this. But now it appears that the whole conception of the reward of Christ by God is subordinate to the idea of the immanence of God in His Work. The Work of Christ is not only the Work which God has given Him to do (John 4:34; John 17:4), but God Works through Him; so that the value to God of the Work of Christ consists ultimately in His voluntary self-surrender to be the personal instrument in the world of the saving revelation of God, and the recognition of this Work by God in the exaltation of Christ, which yields Him the fruit of His Work in the salvation of men, is, at the same time, included in the execution of God’s own purpose of salvation. Thus the ethical doctrine of the Work of Christ culminates ultimately in the wholly religious view of it (2 Corinthians 3:1-9; cf. the subordination of the Work of Christ to the grace of God in Romans 3:24-28)

Elijah (2) - Here Jesus justifies His performance of miracles in Capernaum, while refraining from Working them in Nazareth, by citing the well-known story of Elijah’s going away from Israel in time of famine to relieve the distress of a Sidonian widow (1 Kings 17:8-9). All the other passages refer to the present or future Work of an Elijah who, according to common Jewish belief, still lived and would appear again upon earth. Only one, Simon, saw in the Work of Jesus the consummation, rather than the postponement, of their Messianic hope. When once Jesus has been accepted as the Messiah, the Work of John cannot fail to be known as the great preparatory Work of Elijah. This Work finds expression in St. ) is the natural expression of his lofty idea of the Work of preparation for the Messiah contrasted with the insufficiency of the Work he had actually been able to perform. The Work of the forerunner here finds fullest expression. This is, however, the implication of the other passages; otherwise the suggested identification of Jesus with Elijah would not have been possible, for it was the very Works of Jesus that called out the suggestion. describes the same Work more elaborately, and forms an early interpretation of the passage in Malachi. Naturally his Work is in behalf of their own people, and is performed in connexion with their own institutions. ...
As the Jews elaborated the earlier doctrine of the Messiah, and as in their thought He became more and more exalted in holiness and majesty, the impossibility of His appearance in the midst of all the sin and shame of Israel was increasingly felt; and the character of Elijah, the holy prophet, zealous in his earthly life for the political and religious integrity of the nation, and already enshrined in tradition as having been spared death, was a fitting one to be chosen to carry on the great Work of preparing Israel for the blessings of the Messianic era. ]'>[2] 3 [3] ii

A man who does no Work is to them a parasite (2 Thessalonians 3:10). In the Thessalonian Church the expectation of the speedy return of the Lord had been made an excuse by many for the abandonment of their daily Work. That he might be no burden to others, he willingly Worked overtime (‘night and day,’ 1 Thessalonians 2:9). There was a danger that slaves might suppose that, as in the eyes of God they were of equal value with their masters, they need not do their Work very carefully.

It was the custom among Jewish artisans to maintain anyone of their own craft who was seeking Work until his search was successful.

Haggai - ...
The book consists of a series of addresses by Haggai together with the results of his Work. The final form of the book may have been the Work of someone other than the prophet who put the collection together. Then Darius appointed Zerubbabel as governor with the specific responsibility of resuming Work on the Temple, begun earlier by Shesh-bazzar. Work on the Temple ceased. Another was the stress on the linking of worship and Work, a characteristic feature of Jesus' teaching and of the New Testament in general. Some scholars think he neglected the moral element, but he really stressed a return to the basics of worship and a close relationship between worship and Work. ...
The book consists of five short addresses and a description of the results of Haggai's efforts to persuade his people to resume Work on the Temple. Haggai suggested how they should respond to the excuses people were making for not resuming Work on the Temple (Haggai 2:1-28 ). In response they resumed Work on the Temple. ...

Trust in God's promises and power to provide every need encourages His people to continue His Work (Haggai 2:4-9 )

Concordances - Nathan’s Work was revised and enlarged by John Buxtorf, the elder, whose Concordantiœ Bibliorum Hebraicœ (1632) held the place of standard Concordance for two centuries, and served as the model for many others. In the use of the following lists it will be understood that, while the most recent Works, other things being equal, are to be preferred, there is so much common material that many of the older Works are by no means obsolete. and Chaldee Scriptures (Bagster, 1876); Bagster’s Handy Hebrew Concordance [1]; Mandelkern, Vet.

Sabbath - In the Genesis story of creation, God ceased from his Work of creation after six days, then rested on the seventh (Genesis 2:1-3). It seems that from early times people in general recognized a week of seven days (Genesis 8:10; Genesis 8:12; Genesis 29:27), and God’s people in particular ceased their Work one day in seven. This was for two purposes: firstly, to set the day apart for God instead of using it for themselves; secondly, to rest from their daily Work and so gain refreshment (Exodus 16:22-30). ...
God’s appointment for Israel...
When God formally established Israel as his people and gave them his laws, one of the laws was that they had to rest from their Work every seventh day. Anyone who did his Work on that day was to be put to death (Exodus 20:8-11; Exodus 31:13-17; Numbers 15:32-36; Deuteronomy 5:15). ...
Working animals, such as oxen and donkeys, also had rest one day in seven (Deuteronomy 5:14; cf. A festival day on which people were to do no Work was also called a Sabbath, though it may not have coincided with the usual weekly Sabbath (Leviticus 16:29-31; Leviticus 23:30-32; John 19:31). ...
After the return from captivity in Babylon, Nehemiah introduced special laws to prevent people from Working and trading on the Sabbath (Nehemiah 13:15-22). Just as God’s daily Work in caring for his creation does not break the Sabbath law, neither did Jesus’ Work in healing the sick on the Sabbath (John 5:16-18). It was taken from the symbolic rest of God, which expressed his satisfaction in bringing his creative Work to its goal with the creation of Adam and Eve (Genesis 2:1-3; Exodus 20:11). The one-day-in-seven rest is a reminder to them that when Work so dominates them that they have no time to cease from it, then it has become a god. Nevertheless, it provided the opportunity to give practical expression to those values of cessation from Work and devotion to God that God desired for people from the beginning

The Work, however, is a rich source from which historians have constantly drawn
Reconciliation - Reconciliation is God’s Work; it is not something sinners themselves can accomplish. The fault is on their side, but the removal of hostility is entirely the Work of God (2 Corinthians 5:18-19). People are brought into a right relationship with God only through the outworking of God’s grace in the death of Jesus Christ (Romans 5:10-11; 1618616941_80; Colossians 1:20; Colossians 1:22). ...
Having experienced the gracious Work of God’s reconciliation, believers should preach it to others, so that others might be reconciled to God (2 Corinthians 5:18). Christ’s Work destroys traditional hostilities in human relations and brings peace (2 Corinthians 5:20). They should also Work towards the reconciliation of people in general to the world of nature in which they live
Zerubbabel - Within a short time they met opposition from the local non-Jewish people, with the result that they became discouraged and the Work stopped (Ezra 4:24).

Only when Haggai and Zechariah began their stirring preaching in 520 BC did Zerubbabel, Joshua and the rest of the people get to Work again (Ezra 5:1-2; Haggai 1:1-6; Haggai 1:14-15). Zerubbabel, having control of the Work, was told that through God’s power he would overcome the mountain of obstacles he faced. As his hands had begun the Work on the temple, so his hands would finish it (Zechariah 4:6-10)

Hope - One stalwart laborer was named Industry: consecrated Work was his. These went forth to their labor, and they took with them, to cheer their toils, their well-beloved sister Hope; and well it was they did, for they needed the music of her consolation ere the Work was done, for the forest trees were huge and demanded many sturdy blows of the axe ere they would fall prone upon the ground. At night when they went to their rest, the day's Work always seemed so light, for as they crossed the threshold, Patience, wiping the sweat from his brow, would be encouraged, and Self-denial would be strengthened by hearing the sweet voice of Hope within singing, 'God will bless us, God, even our own God, will bless us. ' They felled the lofty trees to the music of that strain; they cleared the acres one by one, they tore from their sockets the hug' roots, they delved the soil, they sowed the corn, and waited for the harvest, often much discouraged, but still held to their Work as by silver chains and golden fetters by the sweet sound of the voice which chanted so constantly, 'God, ever our own God, will bless us
Barnabas - ’ His kindly introduction of Saul to the Christians at Jerusalem disarmed their fears ( Acts 9:27 ); his broad sympathies made him quick to recognize the Work of grace amongst the Greeks at Antioch ( Acts 11:23 ), and to discern the fitness of his gifted friend for that important sphere of service ( Acts 11:25 f. After a year’s fellowship in Work at Antioch, Barnabas and Saul were appointed to convey ‘the relief’ sent thence to the brethren in Judæa ( Acts 11:30 ). Between Paul and Barnabas ‘there arose a sharp contention’ concerning John Mark ( Acts 15:35 ff), and they agreed to Work apart; Galatians 2:13 also records Paul’s adverse judgment of Barnabas’ attitude in regard to the circumcision controversy. Paul’s familiarity with the Work of his friend
Persis - 2 [1] 394) or one closely associated with him in his Work. Elsewhere κοπιᾶν is employed to describe the Apostle’s missionary labours (1 Corinthians 15:10, Galatians 4:11, Philippians 2:16, Colossians 1:29), as well as the manual toil involved (1 Corinthians 4:12, Ephesians 4:28); also the Work of the leaders of the Church at Thessalonica (1 Thessalonians 5:12), of Christians like those who formed ‘the household of Stephanas’ (1 Corinthians 16:16), and of certain elders in 1 Timothy 5:17 ‘who labour in the word and in teaching. ’ It is therefore impossible to regard the Work of Persis and of the other women as limited to practical benevolence, such as the showing of hospitality. The aorist, in contrast to the present used in the same verse of the labours of Tryphaena and Tryphosa, may point to some definite occasion of special importance in the past; or we may suppose that Persis was an aged woman whose active Work was over

Salvation - ...
New Testament For convenience, salvation can be viewed from the two perspectives of Christ's saving Work and the believer's experience of salvation. ...
Christ's saving Work involves already completed, on-going, and future saving activity. ...
The apex of Christ's completed Work is His sacrificial death: Christ came to “give his life a ransom for many” (Mark 10:45 ); Christ “entered once for all into the Holy Place, with his own blood, thus obtaining eternal redemption” (Hebrews 9:12 NRSV); “in Christ God was reconciling the world to himself, not counting their trespasses against them” ( 2 Corinthians 5:19 NRSV). With reference to Christ's atoning Work, the believer can confess, “I was saved when Jesus died for me. ”...
Christ's present saving Work primarily concerns Christ's role as mediator (Romans 8:34 ; Hebrews 7:25 ; 1 John 2:1 ). Christ's future saving Work chiefly concerns Christ's coming again “to bring salvation to those who eagerly await him” (Hebrews 9:28 REB) and salvation from the wrath of God's final judgment ( Romans 5:9-10 ). God's initial Work in the believer's life breaks down into various scenes: conviction of sin (John 16:8 ); repentance (turning) from sin to God (Luke 15:7 ,Luke 15:7,15:10 ; 2 Corinthians 7:10 ); faith which involves commitment of one's whole life to Christ (John 3:16 ,John 3:16,3:36 ); confession of Christ as Lord (Acts 2:21 ; Romans 10:9-10 ). This initial Work in the believer's life is often termed justification. ...
God's ongoing Work in the believer's life concerns the process of maturing in Christ (Hebrews 2:3 ; 1 Peter 2:2 ; 2 Peter 3:18 ), growing in Christ's service (1 Corinthians 7:20-22 ), and experiencing victory over sin through the power of the Holy Spirit (Romans 7-8 ). ...
God's yet to be finished Work in the lives of all believers is sometimes called glorification (Romans 8:17 ; Hebrews 2:10 ). Scripture, however, uses a wealth of terms for this future saving Work: adoption (Romans 8:23 ); redemption (Luke 21:28 ; Romans 8:23 ; Ephesians 4:30 ); salvation (Romans 13:11 ; Hebrews 1:14 ; Hebrews 9:28 ; 1 Peter 1:5 ; 1 Peter 2:2 ); and sanctification (1 Thessalonians 5:23 ). God's future Work involves more than the individual; God's future Work extends to the renewal of heaven and earth. ...
Some Contested Issues (1) The relationship between faith and Works: Scripture repeatedly affirms that salvation is the free gift of God appropriated through faith (Ephesians 2:8-9 ; Romans 3:28 ). We are saved for good Works (Ephesians 2:10 ). ...
(2) The perseverance of the saints: Assurance of salvation is grounded in confidence that God is able to finish the good Work begun in us (Philippians 1:6 ), that God who sacrificed His Son for sinners (Romans 5:8-9 ) will not hold back anything necessary to save one of his children (Romans 8:32 ), and that nothing can separate us from God's love in Christ (Romans 8:35-39 )
Hospital - The monasteries and religious bodies adopted the care of the sick and lepers as a common feature of their Work. Today there are many religious orders for Work in hospitals and among the sick, and such sisterhoods have won love and veneration in communities otherwise hostile to the Church. Catholic charity is given to hospital Work, not merely because of the service afforded the body, but also because in so many eases souls are won from sin and sped in safety from earth to heaven
Dig - To Work with a spade or other piercing instrument to do servile Work. To Work in search of to search
Service - Work done for other people or for God and the worship of God. Jacob Worked for Laban seven years for each of his wives (Genesis 29:15-30 ).

Not a street of it! It is a great city of play; very nasty play, and very hard play,. ' ...

Sunday-Schools - " Asfar as can be seen, all that has been written, published and preachedon this subject seems to resolve itself into simply this—Try to dothe best you can with the material you have, the short time allottedto this Work, usually one hour a week, and the absolute voluntaryismof the whole undertaking. And yet in spite of this discouragingoutlook, there can be no doubt that the Sunday-school offers oneof the very best fields for genuine Church Work and is "worthwhile," as has been fully demonstrated in many places of earnesttoil for God.

Maximus, an Ecclesiastical Writer - Eusebius says the subject of his Work was the origin of evil and whether matter had been created, and elsewhere ( Praep. of the remains of Maximus, pointed out that the same fragment is in the dialogue on free will ascribed to Methodius, and that other things are common to the Work on free will and the dialogue of Origen against the Marcionites, so that both authors probably drew from Maximus. That the Work is rightly ascribed to Maximus the testimony of Eusebius is decisive; and St. Jerome says in his Catalogue, that Methodius wrote on free will, while Photius has preserved large extracts from what he knew as the Work of Methodius on free will, which clearly prove that it incorporated much of Maximus. He then offers the solution that, co-eternally with God, there existed matter, destitute of form or qualities, and borne about in a disorderly manner; that God took pity on it, separated the best parts from the worst, reduced the former to order, and left the latter behind as being of no use to Him for His Work, and that from these lees of matter evil sprang.

Isaiah 42:1 gives a remarkable picture of the ideal Servant of the Lord and the great Work that God intends Him to accomplish.

Isaiah 49:4 describes the godly in Israel who know what God wants but feel their own inadequacy and provides assurance that the Work belongs to God, and He will bring it to pass. Isaiah 65:8-94 and Isaiah 49:6 distinguish between the One who will fulfill the Work of the Servant and the nation of Israel, to which this One belongs and which He represents. Isaiah 54:1 shows the outreach of the Servant's Work, and Isaiah 55:1 gives the glorious call to receive the salvation won by the Servant's redemptive Work, “without money and without price” ( Isaiah 55:1 )
Ezra, Book of - Our present Book of Ezra, which consists of 10 chapters, is really part of a composite Work, Ezra-Nehemiah, which, again, is the continuation of Chronicles. The entire Work Chronicles-Ezra-Nehemiah is a compilation made by the Chronicler. 3 describes how in October 537 the altar of burnt-offering was re-erected on its ancient site, the foundation-stone of the Temple laid (May 536), and the Work of re-building begun. 7 10 deal with Ezra’s personal Work.

The introductory verses ( Ezra 7:1-11 ) are apparently the Work of the Chronicler. It would appear that after the great Work of the Chronicler had been completed (1 and 2 Chronicles, Ezra-Nehemiah), the part which contained narratives of otherwise unrecorded events was first received into the Canon

Feet (Wash) - Exodus 30:19 (c) Perhaps this figure indicates that our Work and our walk must be clean as we enter into GOD's service. He has removed his coat for whole-hearted Work in the harvest field, and he has cleansed his feet from evil ways that he may walk humbly and softly with GOD

Regeneration - A new birth; that Work of the Holy Spirit by which we experience a change of heart. The nature of the Work shows plainly that it is not in the power of men to do it: it is called a creation, a production of a new principle which was not before, and which man could not himself produce, Ephesians 2:8 ; Ephesians 2:10 . It is a passive Work, and herein it differs from conversion. It is an irresistible, or rather an invincible Work of God's grace, Ephesians 3:8 . ...

Evangelist - " Apostles (Acts 8:25; Acts 14:7; 1 Corinthians 1:17) or vicars apostolic, as Timothy (2 Timothy 4:2-5), might "preach ("herald", keerussein ) the word," and so "do the Work of an evangelist. It was therefore a Work rather than an order. , 3:37) in the third century says: "men do the Work of evangelists, leaving their homes to preach Christ, and deliver the written Gospels to those who were ignorant of the faith. " The transition step appears in 2 Corinthians 8:18-19, "the brother, whose praise is in the gospel throughout all the churches," probably Luke, well known throughout the churches as Paul's companion in evangelistic Work, and at that time with Paul (Acts 20:6)
Plow (And Forms) - The friend of GOD and the enemy of GOD should not try to do the Work of GOD in the harvest fields.

No crop would be produced, and horses will not want to either Work there or feed there. ...

Ambrosiaster, or Pseudo-Ambrosius - Ambrose and usually printed along with his Works.

There can be little doubt that, whoever was the author, the Work no longer retains its original form. The well-meaning zeal of copyists appears to have freely inserted comments from various sources, such as Augustine, Chrysostom, Jerome, the commentary which is printed at the end of the Works of Jerome and is usually ascribed to Pelagius. ...
There is, moreover, a marked affinity between this commentary and certain portions of the Quaestiones Veteris et Novi Testamenti usually printed with the Works of St. The similarity of ideas and, in various cases, identity of language can only be explained by supposing either that they have had a common author, or that the writer of the one Work has borrowed largely from the other. The note of time in the Quaestiones —300 years after the destruction of Jerusalem—and some references to contemporary events suit the period of Damasus, and have induced many to ascribe this Work also to Hilary the deacon. ...
The commentary on the Pauline Epistles, notwithstanding its inequalities of treatment, is of great value, and is well characterized by Sixtus Senensis as "brief in words, but weighty in matter"; and, although the writer is frequently controversial, he speedily returns to the proper Work of exegesis. In consequence of his use of the old Latin version and frequent reference to various readings, his Work affords important materials for textual criticism

Joshua the Son of Jehozadak - They laid the foundation of the temple the next year (Ezra 3:8-11), but when opposition discouraged the builders, the Work stopped (Ezra 4:1-5). ...

Zechariah, Book of - Soon they had set up the altar and laid the foundation of the temple, but when local people began persecuting them, they became discouraged and stopped Work (Ezra 4:1-5; Ezra 4:24). For sixteen years no Work was done on the temple. Then, in 520 BC, God raised up two prophets, Haggai and Zechariah, to stir up the people to get to Work again and finish the temple (Ezra 5:1-2; Haggai 1:1; Zechariah 1:1). The temple was finished in 516 BC, after four and a half years Work (Ezra 6:14-15). ...
Haggai and Zechariah were both concerned with rousing the people from their spiritual laziness and getting them to Work on the temple, but the preaching of Zechariah went further. The first three visions give encouragement to the Workmen (1:7-2:13), the central pair give encouragement to the leaders, Joshua and Zerubbabel (3:1-4:14), and the last three give assurance of final victory (5:1-6:8)

Craft, Craftsman - ...
Note: Demiourgos, "a maker," properly signifies one who Works for the people, or whose Work stands forth to the public gaze (demos, "people," ergon, "work"), but this idea has been lost in the use of the word, which came to signify "a maker," Hebrews 11:10
Holy Spirit - This excludes the idea of a Divine Work manifesting itself in the inner life of man. Accordingly He has the Spirit ‘not by measure’ (John 3:34), By the Spirit He is one with God, and is able to Work the Work of God in men. The conviction was intensified by the culminating events of the life of Jesus, since, as the Risen One, He reveals in Himself the Work of the Spirit; the Spirit giveth life. Then, as He still maintains in His state of exaltation His intercourse with His disciples, and does this in such a way that, like God, He is present with them and reigns over thorn, the Spirit becomes the medium by which He consummates His Work. Paul, in the fact, namely, that he regards the sending of the Spirit, no less than that of the Son, as a Work of God-as the Work, indeed, by which the Advent of the Son was fully realized (1618616941_1). Connexion with the inauguration of apostolic Work. But the occurrences which manifested to the disciples the descent of the Spirit were distinguished from the events of Easter: the latter perfected the fellowship of Jesus with His disciples, while the former inaugurated their apostolic Work and laid the foundation of the Church. The Spirit equips the Church to witness for Jesus, and endows it with power for its Divinely-given Work. , with his progress in knowledge, his felicity, or his moral growth and perfection; what was expected from the Spirit was rather the equipment for the effective Work necessary to the preaching of Christ and the institution of the Church Hence the apostles were regarded as in a supreme degree the mediators of the Spirit (cf. On the contrary, the statements which set forth the operations of the Spirit serve in reality to enunciate the presence and Work of Christ. Nor, again, did the believer’s relation to Christ consist merely in his knowledge of the Saviour’s earthly career; and, in point of fact, that consciousness of unlimited fellowship with Christ which forms one of the essential characteristics of the NT Epistles is based upon the belief that the earthly Work of Jesus is still carried on in the operations mediated by the Spirit. That theological type of Christology according to which Christ is the Son who is one with God in the sense that God Works through Him passes over into the doctrine of the Spirit. The formulae which speak of the Work of Christ as a manifestation of Divine power are therefore applied also to the Work of the Spirit. Christ and the Spirit are regarded co-ordinately as the two agents through whom the grace of God completes its Work in man, and through both the one will expressive of the Divine grace is realized. Thug the Work of Christ and that of the Spirit are in complete harmony with each other and with the Work of the Father. ’ Essentially the same formulation is found in the salutation of 1 Peter (1 Peter 1:2), and in a like sense we must interpret the baptismal formula in Matthew 28:19, where the one Name into which the nations are to be baptized embraces the Son and the Spirit as well as the Father, because the Work of calling man to God and of bringing him within the Divine grace is effected by Christ through the medium of the Spirit. We must bear in mind, however, that the teaching of Jesus certainly contained the statement that He would Work through the Spirit, and that He would do so by imparting the Spirit to His people. Moreover, even if in that age the Gosper still clung closely to the Jewish expectation of the Messiah, dissociating the Working of the Spirit from the present, and assigning it wholly to the coming dispensation-the idea being that the Spirit would raise from the dead all who had been baptized into Christ-yet, even on that hypothesis, the preaching of Christ must still have embraced the promise of the Spirit. Primitive Christianity, however, felt the overt recognition of the Spirit to be of the utmost importance, because it saw the crowning Work of Divine grace, not in its general action upon human beings through the invisible government of God, or in its manifestation in the earthly Work of Christ, but rather in its operations in man himself-in its quickening of his thoughts and his love, and in its enrichment of the inner life

Preparation - The preparation of the heart is the great subject of enquiry in a Work of this kind, and to which therefore I would particularly direct the attention. To prepare any person or thing may be easily understood in fitting and qualifying, in disposing or making ready; but in Scripture language the whole of the Work, both in fitting and qualifying, in disposing or making ready, is of the Lord. And when the soul of a poor sinner hath been first prepared of the Lord, by regenerating, illuminating, convincing, and converting grace, and is thus brought into an union with Christ, all the subsequent acts of grace, in the goings forth of the soul upon the person, blood and righteousness of Christ, sweet preparing and disposing Work of God the Holy Ghost. (Ephesians 2:18) It is that blessed, holy and eternal Spirit, in his own office-work, which prepares the soul, by calling off the mind from every object, and fixing the affections on the person of Jesus
Zerub'Babel - On arriving at Jerusalem, Zerubbabel's great Work, which he set about immediately, was the rebuilding of the temple. The efforts of the Samaritans were successful in putting a stop to the Work during the seven remaining years of the reign of Cyrus and through the eight years of Cambyses and Smerdis. The difficulties in the way of building the temple were not such as need have stopped the Work and during this long suspension of sixteen years Zerubbabel and the rest of the people had been busy in building costly houses for themselves. In a moment Zerubbabel roused from his apathy, threw his whole strength into the Work. [2] The only other Works of Zerubbabel of which we learn from Scripture are the restoration of the courses of priests and Levites and of the provision for their maintenance, according to the institution of David (Ezra 6:18 ; Nehemiah 12:47 ) the registering the returned captives according to their genealogies, (Nehemiah 7:5 ) and the keeping of a Passover in the seventh year of Darius, with which last event ends all that we know of the life of Zerubbabel, His apocryphal history is told in 1Esdr

The place in which the article on Theodotus came in the lost Work of Hippolytus exactly corresponds to the date assigned to him in the Little Labyrinth . Hippolytus reports that as to the Deity and the Work of creation the doctrine of Theodotus was orthodox, but as to our Lord's person he agreed with Gnostic speculations, especially in distinguishing Jesus and Christ. He taught that at the baptism of Jesus, Christ descended on Him in the form of a dove, and that He was then able to Work miracles, though He had never exhibited any before: but even so He was not God; though some of the sect were willing to acknowledge His right to the title after His resurrection

Propitiation (2) - As the ground of reconciliation and atonement, it is the innermost truth in reference to Christ’s redemptive Work. As used in the latter, it refers to the relation of Christ’s Work to sin. —The single instance in which our Lord is reported to have used the word ἱλάσκομαι, in Luke 18:13, has little bearing on the question whether He thought His Work a propitiation. This question must be considered on the broader ground of His thought of the relation in which His Work stood to the Levitical sacrifices out of which the idea of propitiation grew. Now, the Evangelists believed much relating to His birth, lifework, and death to be the fulfilment of OT prophecy (Matthew 1:23; Matthew 2:6; Matthew 2:18; Matthew 3:3; Matthew 4:15-16; Matthew 12:18-21; Matthew 13:35; Matthew 21:5 etc. He did not view His Work and teaching as a break in the continuity of religious historical development, but as woven into its evolving progress. The place His death had in His thought, apart from the more direct teaching as to its purpose and import, makes it plain that it was deemed of paramount importance in His mission Work. The great space given to the circumstances connected with our Lord’s death seems to show that the Evangelists saw in it the culmination of His redemptive Work. The confidence with which they taught, beginning with Pentecost, can be explained only by their receiving from our Lord Himself and from the promised Spirit a certain knowledge of the nature of His Work. John all believed themselves to be giving our Lord’s own view of the purport of His Work. —While we may have the key to the innermost meaning of our Lord’s mission Work in the forms of the word ἱλάσκομαι, they must be interpreted in the perspective of the general teaching of the Epistles. While the word ‘propitiation’ is used so seldom, the idea that our Lord’s Work was a propitiation is woven into the warp and woof of them all. As in the Levitical sacrifices for sin, the shed blood, representing the life given up, was the propitiation, so emphasis is laid upon the blood of Christ in His redemptive Work (Romans 5:9, Ephesians 1:7; Ephesians 2:13, Colossians 1:14-20, Heb. It is Jesus Christ the Righteous who is the propitiation, apparently showing that His propitiatory Work had a peculiar relation to righteousness. Neither is He the propitiation for sins because of any cleansing or other Work wrought in men as a consequence of His Work and death; for He is the propitiation for the whole world, many of whom will never be purified or subjectively changed by or through it. The propitiation is due to a Work for us, and not in us, except as a consequence. It must then, in itself, have reference to God, and not to a Work in men’s hearts. John’s whole view of Christ as the antitype of the sacrificial victims, in connexion with his statement (1 John 2:2) that He is the propitiation for the whole world, can be explained only on the ground that he thought of Christ’s propitiatory Work as having primarily an efficacy Godward, and manward only as a consequence. Through His sacrifice a ‘purification of sins’ (Hebrews 1:3), a cleansing of the ‘conscience from dead Works’ (Hebrews 9:14), is wrought, and access to God assured (Hebrews 10:9-22). To the question whether Christ’s Work effected something objectively for us as well as provided for a subjective Work in us, the answer is clear. This Work for us, as prior to that in us, is its necessary condition and ground, as apart from the shedding of blood there is no remission (Hebrews 9:22). The interpretation which would make the author of Hebrews restrict the efficacy of Christ’s Work to its influence upon men, dislocates it from its whole setting, destroys its plainest antitypical significance, and would make his meaning unintelligible to the Hebrew readers for whom it was doubtless prepared. Neither are there wanting hints as to how Christ’s Work had this objective efficacy. The emphasis put upon the fitness of Christ’s sharing man’s nature and condition in order to do His Work for them as high priest and sacrifice (ch. —In addition to the Works referred to above:—Bruce, St
Hexapla - This Work Origen called Εξαπλα , Hexapla, that is, sextuple, or a Work of six columns, as only regarding the first six Greek versions. Epiphanius, taking in likewise the two columns of the text, calls the Work Octapla, as consisting of eight columns. This celebrated Work, which Montfaucon imagines consisted of fifty large volumes, perished long ago, probably with the library at Caesarea, where it was preserved, in the year 653; though several of the ancient writers have preserved us portions of it, particularly St. The object of Origen being to correct the differences found in the then existing copies of the Old Testament, he carefully noted all the alterations which he discovered; and for the information of those who might consult his Work, he made use of the following marks

Holy Spirit - It was all a preparation for the fuller revelation of the Trinity that came through the life and Work of Jesus Christ. People may not always have realized it, but every Work ever done in people’s hearts, whether in turning them initially to God or in creating new character within them, was the Work of God’s unseen Spirit. In more spectacular demonstrations of God’s Working, the Spirit of God had come upon selected people for certain tasks, but Jesus had the Spirit without limit. He lived his life and carried out his Work through the unlimited power of God’s Spirit Working through him unceasingly (Isaiah 11:1-5; Isaiah 42:1-4; Romans 8:9-11; Matthew 3:16-17; Matthew 12:28; Luke 4:1; Luke 4:14; Luke 4:18; John 3:34-35; Acts 10:38). There may have been a change in the way the Spirit Worked, and there was a development in how people understood the Spirit, but the Spirit himself did not change. Consequently, the Work that the Holy Spirit was doing in the world through him was limited to those times and places where Jesus Worked. After he had completed the Work his Father had given him to do (a Work that could be completed only through his death and resurrection), he would return to his Father, leaving his followers to carry on his Work upon earth. To enable them to do this Work satisfactorily, the Father would give them the same Spirit as had Worked through Jesus (John 14:16-18; John 15:26; John 16:13-15). ...
This was why Jesus told his disciples that once he had returned triumphantly to his Father, they would do greater Works than he had done. The power of the Spirit had previously been limited to the few years of one man’s ministry in one place; but now that power would be poured out on all Jesus’ disciples, and they would carry on his Work in all countries, till the end of the age (John 14:12; John 14:16). ...
The Spirit and the early church...
Because Jesus was to be the channel through whom God would give the Holy Spirit to believers in general, Jesus had to complete the Work given him by his Father before believers could receive the Spirit. Moreover, the Father wanted to show his satisfaction with Christ’s Work by raising him from the dead and giving him glory
Ezra - His Work and achievements rather suggest the character of the ‘scribe’ ( sôphçr ) par excellence . ]'>[1] In the apocalyptic Work known as 2 (4) Esdras he is represented as a ‘prophet’ ( 2E Esther 1:1 ). ...
In order to form a just estimate of Ezra’s Work and aims, we must picture him as a diligent student of the Law. The so-called ‘Priestly Code’ which must be regarded as the Work of a whole school of writers was formed, or at least the principal part of it, probably between the closing years of the Exile and the arrival of Ezra in Jerusalem (b. A general congregation of the community authorizes the establishment of a divorce court, presided over by Ezra, which finishes its labours after three months’ Work:’ and they made an end with the whole business’ (10:17 [2]), many innocent women and children being made to suffer in the process. Or and there is some probability in this view the chronology may have become dislocated in the present composite narrative, and Ezra may really have accomplished the bulk of his Work before Nehemiah’s arrival. Perhaps with even greater plausibility a case may be made out for placing Ezra’s Work subsequent to Nehemiah’s governorship
