These works are rather for popular reading than for students; but they are good as a whole, and their spirit is excellent. The Greatest Story Ever Told is, certainly, the greatest story ever illustrated. Jerome's work is called the Vulgate (i.e. common language), and he translated most of the Old Testament of his Vulgate from Hebrew, since he argued for the superiority of the Hebrew texts in correcting the Septuagint on both philological and theological grounds. [35] His Vulgate Old Testament became the standard bible used in the Western Church, specifically as the Sixto-Clementine Vulgate, while the Churches in the East continued, and still continue, to use the Septuagint. [36] Jerome, however, in the Vulgate's prologues describes some portions of books in the Septuagint that were not found in the Hebrew as being non- canonical (he called them apocrypha ); [37] for Baruch, he mentions by name in his Prologue to Jeremiah and notes that it is neither read nor held among the Hebrews, but does not explicitly call it apocryphal or "not in the canon". [38] The Synod of Hippo (in 393), followed by the Councils of Carthage (in 397 and 419), may be the first council that explicitly accepted the first canon which includes the books that did not appear in the Hebrew Bible; [39] the councils were under significant influence of Augustine of Hippo, who regarded the canon as already closed. [40] In the 16th, century the Protestant reformers sided with Jerome; yet although most Protestant Bibles now have only those books that appear in the Jewish Bible, they have them in the order of the Greek Bible. [41] Rome then officially adopted a canon, the Canon of Trent, which is seen as following Augustine's Carthaginian Councils [42] or the Council of Rome, [43] [44] and includes most, but not all, of the Septuagint ( 3 Ezra and 3 and 4 Maccabees are excluded); [45] the Anglicans after the English Civil War adopted a compromise position, restoring the 39 Articles and keeping the extra books that were excluded by the Westminster Confession of Faith, but only for private study and for reading in churches, while Lutherans kept them for private study, gathered in an appendix as Biblical Apocrypha. [41] While the Hebrew, Greek and Latin versions of the Hebrew Bible are the best known Old Testaments, there were others.

Indeed, the saints desire this better country, which is a heavenly one. Many pursue wisdom, social justice, wealth, power, or physical strength as the highest good ......

Third both the commandments and the beatitudes are specific.

Breakthroughs! over the river! flips and crucifixions! gone down the flood! Another array of dialogues develops among El, Baal, Athirat, Anat, and Kothar before the construction of a palace for Baal. While such bleak pronouncements seem hard for some to square with the idea of a loving God, there is no linguistically convincing or theologically satisfactory way to avoid the conclusion that just as joy in the Lord's presence will endure for all timefor eternityso will the experience of his hot displeasure.
