(9,133 words)

Author(s): Filoramo, Giovanni | Spiekermann, Hermann | Sänger, Dieter | Rieger, Reinhold | Saarinen, Risto | Et al.
[German Version] I. Religious Studies – II. Old Testament – III. New Testament – IV. Church History – V. Systematic Theology – VI. Law – VII. Judaism I. Religious Studies 1. The use of the term grace has been influenced strongly by the historically innovative Pauline conception. For Paul, grace is a gift, a unique fruit of God's salvific purpose and redemptive action.

Beth-Shearim

(180 words)

Author(s): Oppenheimer, Aharon
[German Version] was a Jewish settlement located on a hill in lower Galilee. Flavius Josephus and Greek inscriptions give its name as Besara. In the Talmud it is generally called Beth-Shearim. At the end of the Second Temple period, it served as an administrative center for the estates in the Jezreel valley belonging to queen Berenice, great granddaughter of Herod and sister of Agrippa. The Patriarchate and leadership of the sages moved to Beth-Shearim in the days of rabbi Judah (about 180–220 ce). It is reasonable to suppose that Yehudah ha-Nasi received the leasehold of the lands around Beth-Shearim from the Roman authorities, who had taken them from the Herodian dynasty. Rabbi Yehudah ha-Nasi was buried in Beth-Shearim, which became the central Jewish necropolis in the 3rd and 4th centuries. The dead were often buried in ornamented sarcophagi and were not only brought from the land of Israel, but also from the diaspora. Beth-Shearim was probably destroyed when emperor Gallus pu…

Repentance

Author(s): Gantke, Wolfgang | Waschke, Ernst-Joachim | Oppenheimer, Aharon | Dan, Joseph | Weder, Hans | Et al.
[German Version] I. Religious Studies Examination of repentance from the perspective of religious studies must confront the problem that the term itself has no culturally neutral meaning. Many of the phenomena in other religions that Christians tend to call repentance appear in a different light when viewed in the context of different anthropological presuppositions, ¶ so that due weight must be given to the religious anthropology in question. Generally speaking, it is true to say that in almost all non-Christian religions the notion of repentance c…
