Os Apócrifos da Bíblia: A História dos Antigos Textos Apócrifos Deixados do Antigo Testamento e do Novo Testamento (Portuguese Edition)

by Charles River Editors

A Bíblia é o livro mais famoso do mundo, lido por um número incontável de cristãos e outros ao longo dos séculos.Mesmo aqueles que não são cristãos ou remotamente religiosos podem recitar Mateus, Marcos, Lucas e João como os quatro primeiros evangelhos do Novo Testamento, e livros como Gênesis e �xodo incluem algumas das histórias mais famosas da história humana.

O estudo dos evangelhos apócrifos, documentos sobre a vida ou declarações de Jesus que não se tornaram parte do Novo Testamento, é uma disciplina popular entre os estudiosos que agora enche várias prateleiras de qualquer biblioteca respeitável.Apesar da crescente secularização da sociedade, parece haver um apetite pela figura histórica de Jesus.No entanto, menos leitores consideram a questão de saber se o Antigo Testamento, também conhecido como a Bíblia Hebraica, é “completo”, e se na antiguidade havia outros livros além de Gênesis, o Ã?xodo ou Juízes, com diferentes histórias e caracteres desconhecidos, excluídos do cânon e se perderam nas areias do tempo.A maioria dos leitores supõe que a grande saga de Israel, começando com as histórias pastorais dos patriarcas, a epopeia do Ã?xodo e a conquista da Terra Prometida, até a corte do rei Davi, é uma história compacta, completa e única.Em sua forma atual, parece começar do começo, e como tal foi aceito por todos na antiguidade, mas alguém na antiga Israel escreveu outras interpretações?

Que o Antigo Testamento não era um produto acabado na época do Segundo Templo (500 aC-70 dC) e que havia mais livros em circulação pode ser estabelecido considerando que a literatura apócrifa judaica é citada no Novo Testamento.A Epístola de Judas menciona uma luta entre o diabo e um arcanjo pela alma de Moisés, um episódio não encontrado no Pentateuco.O autor da epístola que está citando de Enoque, um apócrifo livro do antigo testamento, ou possivelmente da ascensão de Moisés, que o autor de Judas considerado como autoritativo.O apóstolo Paulo cita duas vezes o livro apócrifo conhecido como a Vida de Adão e Eva em sua segunda carta aos Coríntios, e o Evangelho de Mateus cita uma profecia escrita, desconhecida até hoje, de que o messias seria chamado de Nazareno. “Uma das histórias mais enigmáticas e populares derivadas dos apócrifos judaicos é que Eva não foi a primeira mulher criada por Deus; seu nome é mencionado apenas uma vez no livro de Isaías, mas o profeta cobre a lenda com um véu de silêncio.

Mesmo hoje em dia, nem todos os ramos da igreja cristã concordam sobre quais escritos devem ser considerados “canônicos” e quais são “apócrifos”, embora alguns textos apócrifos frequentemente tenham vínculos notáveis com livros considerados “canônicos”.Independentemente disso, os Apócrifos do Novo Testamento referem-se a textos escritos por cristãos primitivos que não foram incluídos na Bíblia usados pelos principais ramos do cristianismo hoje.Esses textos variam em assunto, com alguns sendo relatos de Jesus, outros sendo sobre a natureza de Deus, e ainda outros sendo relatos e ensinamentos dos apóstolos de Jesus.O que os torna fascinantes não é apenas a história por trás da qual eles são considerados não-canônicos, mas o que eles nos dizem sobre a Igreja primitiva e o cristianismo primitivo.Além disso, eles oferecem uma visão sobre quais fontes foram usadas para escrevê-las e se elas compartilhavam as mesmas fontes que os textos que compõem a Bíblia hoje.Dada a sua importância histórica e religiosa, ainda há um debate acirrado sobre a autenticidade de muitos desses textos.



Death from the Sea

by Herbert Molloy Mason

Our Greatest Natural Disaster: The Galveston Hurricane of 1900

Estimates vary, and the exact figure will never be known, but it is certain that three times as many lives were lost in the storm and flood which struck Galveston, Texas, in September of 1900 as in any other natural disaster to befall the United States before or since. Some estimates run as high as 8,000 people killed. The Johnstown flood claimed 2,209 victims and the San Francisco earthquake cost 452 lives.

This anatomy of disaster in an American town is based on survivors’ accounts and official records. It is told in a minute-by-minute description of how the customarily gentle sea breezes mounted to gales and then winds of unprecedented violence, causing the ocean to rise up and fall upon the beautiful and unsuspecting port city.

Walls of water swept over some, 1,500 acres. Nearly 4,000 homes were destroyed. The long bridge connecting Galveston with the mainland was washed away, leaving the “Queen City” a derelict island harboring its dead.

Heroics were almost commonplace during the destruction, and the moral of the story is that a city cannot be killed unless it wants to die. Galveston is very much alive today and this book shows why.

Herbert Molloy Mason (1927-2013) was a noted writer of military history, and has written sixteen books, including The Lafayette Escadrille and The Rise of the Luftwaffe. He lived in San Antonio, Texas with his wife who was an artist.



From War to Peace in the Balkans, the Middle East and Ukraine (Palgrave Critical Studies in Post-Conflict Recovery)

by Daniel Serwer

This open access book focuses on the origins, consequences and aftermath of the 1995 and 1999 Western military interventions that led to the end of the most recent Balkan wars. Though challenging problems remain in Bosnia, Macedonia, Kosovo, and Serbia, the conflict prevention and state-building efforts thereafter were partly successful as countries of the region are on separate tracks towards European Union membership. This study highlights lessons that can be applied to the Middle East and Ukraine, where similar conflicts are likewise challenging sovereignty and territorial integrity. It is an accessible treatment of what makes war and how to make peace ideal for all readers interested in how violent international conflicts can be managed, informed by the experience of a practitioner.



Books of the Maccabees

by Douay Rheims

The name Maccabee in Hebrew, means “hammer”. This is properly applied to the first leader of the revolt, Judas, third son of Mattathias, whose attacks were “hammer-like”. The name came to be used for his brothers as well, which accounts for the title of the book.

The text comes to us in three codices of the Septuagint: the Codex Sinaiticus, Codex Alexandrinus and Codex Venetus, as well as some cursives. The two Books of Maccabees contain independent accounts of events (in part identical) that accompanied the attempted suppression of Judaism in Palestine in the second century B.C. The vigorous reaction to this attempt established for a time the religious and political independence of the Jews. 

I Maccabees was written about 100 B.C., in Hebrew, but the original has not come down to us. Instead, we have an early, pre-Christian, Greek translation full of Hebrew idioms. The author, probably a Palestinian Jew, is unknown. He was familiar with the traditions and sacred books of his people and had access to much reliable information on their recent history (from 175 to 134 B.C.). He may well have played some part in it himself in his youth. His purpose in writing is to record the deliverance of Israel that God worked through the family of Mattathias (5:62)â??especially through his three sons, Judas, Jonathan, and Simon, and his grandson, John Hyrcanus. The writer compares their virtues and their exploits with those of Israel’s ancient heroes, the Judges, Samuel, and David.

There are seven poetic sections in the book that imitate the style of classical Hebrew poetry: four laments (1:25-28, 36-40; 2:7-13; 3:45), and three hymns of praise of “our fathers” (2:51-64), of Judas (3:3-9), and of Simon (14:4-15). The doctrine expressed in the book is the customary belief of Israel, without the new developments which appear in 2 Maccabees and Daniel. The people of Israel have been specially chosen by the one true God as covenant-partner, and they alone are privileged to know and worship God, their eternal benefactor and unfailing source of help. The people, in turn, must worship the Lord alone and observe exactly the precepts of the law given to them. The re-dedication of the Jerusalem Temple described in 4:36-59 (see 2 Mc 10:1-8) is the origin of the Jewish feast of Hanukkah. 



Earthâ??s First Civilization: Antarctica, 55 Million B.C.

by M.G. Hawking

Explore Evidence of an Advanced Civilization on the Antarctic Continent in the Paleocene Epoch, and other Mysterious Cultures of Prehistory.

For decades the archaeological community labored under the theory that human civilization began after the last Ice Age. The theory conjectured that, prior to that time, humans were no more than primitive hunter-gatherers incapable of communal organization or sophisticated abilities, and it was only after the last glacial periodâ??following the melting of the 10,000 foot thick ice sheets that covered much of the northern portion of the world’s continentsâ??that our human ancestors began to develop agriculture and complex economic and social structures, sometime around 4000 B.C.

Contemporary discoveries have dramatically undermined those theories. Modern research has unearthed buried civilizations and discovered hidden cities one after anotherâ??archaeology now reconstructs an unsuspected antiquity of man and paints a canvas of stunningly mysterious dimensions. Previous academic accounts of the origins of civilization have fallen forfeit to evidence from archaeological sites worldwide, including Thebes (c. 37,900 BC), Edfu (c. 18,000 BC), Turkey (c. 12,000 BC), Bolivia (c. 15,000 BC), Indonesia (c. 22,000 BC), and, most intriguingly, in Antarctica.

To explore these remarkable finds, this book has four primary purposes: 1) to present archaeological and other competent evidence demonstrating that civilizations of tremendous antiquity once existed on our planetâ??evidence either known, inexactly known, or currently tentative; 2) to examine evidence regarding the true age of those civilizations; 3) to explore the possible origins of those civilizations; and 4) to reveal the profound esoteric knowledge and technical abilities possessed by the cultures of those civilizations.

Organization & Content: Part I of this book explores the true antiquity of civilization on this planet, examines the ancient traditions and theogonies that shed light on the existence and age of prehistoric civilizations, details the substantial evidence for a Paleocene civilization on the Antarctic continent 55 million years ago, and takes an inside look at recent astronomical and cosmological discoveries.

As the study of antiquity is properly accounted purely academic except as it may be made living knowledge which illuminates and enriches our contemporary life, Parts II and III of this book explore the extremely rare arcane knowledge of the ancient world, along with the powerful abilities that can be attained from the study of that knowledge, ones that convey benefits of great value in our modern world.

Doubtless many of the very earliest chapters of our planet’s history will lie forever silent under her most desolate soil and deepest waters, yet extant legends and traditions have been too readily set asideâ??academic pedants love to brand as mythical the accounts which have endured the millennia, and which mischievously persist.

We invite you to explore amazing discoveries and knowledge that for long millenniums has remained concealed under layers of legend, myth, and secrecy. A truly incomparable book for anyone interested in greatly expanding their knowledge and personal power, and especially fascinating for anyone interested in the realities behind the ubiquitous legends of antediluvian civilizations and the possibility of ancient extraterrestrial influences.

2019 Edition, Kindle e-reader page count 310 (estimated, actual count varies with the reading device used). For more information, please see the â??Look Inside’ feature on this page. Thank you.

Asabiyyah: What Ibn Khaldun, the Islamic father of social science, can teach us about the world today (Kindle Single)

by Ed West

A quarter of a century after the end of Communism swept away the ideological conflict of the â??short 20th century’, a new world is once again taking shape, this time in the Middle East. But what does the crisis in the region, and its refugee exodus into Europe, signify for the future of the world? And why has the noble dream of nation-building failed? Focusing mainly on religion, ideology or economics, most analysis ignored one crucial factor: asabiyyah, or group feeling, something outlined six and a half centuries ago by a largely ignored Arab historian called Ibn Khaldun.

Ibn Khaldun is largely overlooked in the west, yet on top of his claim to being one of the greatest historians of all time can rightfully be viewed as the father of social science and sociology. His book, The Muqaddimah, dealt with a range of subjects from science to economics to the rise and fall of empires, which he attributed to â??the asabiyyah cycle’ – the evolution of societies from barbarism to civilisation to decadence, which he attributed to the strength of â??group feeling’.

Even today asabiyyah is an essential component of human society and development, and is the key to understanding why some states fail and others succeed, why democracy works sometimes but often not, and why the nation-state will remain the foundation of human society. Whatever happens from now on, the outcome of the 21st century will be dependent on asabiyyah, which remains the fundamental reality of human existence.



The French Revolution

by Thomas Carlyle

The book that established Thomas Carlyle’s reputation when first published in 1837, this spectacular historical masterpiece has since been accepted as the standard work on the subject. It combines a shrewd insight into character, a vivid realization of the picturesque, and a singular ability to bring the past to blazing life, making it a reading experience as thrilling as any novel. As John D. Rosenberg observes in his Introduction, The French Revolution is “one of the grand poems of [Carlyle’s] century, yet its poetry consists in being everywhere scrupulously rooted in historical fact.”



The Divo and the Duce: Promoting Film Stardom and Political Leadership in 1920s America (Cinema Cultures in Contact Book 1)

by Giorgio Bertellini

A free ebook version of this title is available through Luminos, University of California Press’s Open Access publishing program. Visit www.luminosoa.org to learn more.

In the post-World War I American climate of isolationism, nativism, democratic expansion of civic rights, and consumerism, Italian-born star Rodolfo Valentino and Italy’s dictator Benito Mussolini became surprising paragons of authoritarian male power and mass appeal. Drawing on extensive archival research in the United States and Italy, Giorgio Bertellini’s work shows how their popularity, both political and erotic, largely depended on the efforts of public opinion managers, including publicists, journalists, and even ambassadors. Beyond the democratic celebrations of the Jazz Age, the promotion of their charismatic masculinity through spectacle and press coverage inaugurated the now-familiar convergence of popular celebrity and political authority.

This is the first volume in the new Cinema Cultures in Contact series, coedited by Giorgio Bertellini, Richard Abel, and Matthew Solomon.



The Great Emu War: Or How Australia Lost A War Against Birds (Pop History Book 1)

by Cj Evans

The Great Emu War of 1932 is an event one does not expect to hear about when they think of Australia, but they actually declared war on a bird. This actually happened. As a side note I would like to say that this was probably one of the funnest things that I have ever written. Also some of the language used in this book is exaggerated at times, but I trust that you dear reader will know when that occurs.



Os Livros Perdidos do Antigo Testamento: A História dos Apócrifos Judaicos Antigos Não Incluídos na Bíblia (Portuguese Edition)

by Charles River Editors

A Bíblia é o livro mais famoso do mundo, lido por um número incontável de cristãos e outros ao longo dos séculos.Mesmo aqueles que não são cristãos ou remotamente religiosos podem recitar Mateus, Marcos, Lucas e João como os quatro primeiros evangelhos do Novo Testamento, e livros como Gênesis e �xodo incluem algumas das histórias mais famosas da história humana.

Recentes descobertas arqueológicas e textuais revelaram que a produção literária entre o povo de Israel antes da vida de Jesus era muito mais extensa e variada do que se supunha anteriormente.Os primeiros exegetas cristãos e judeus estavam cientes de alguns textos cujo status era impreciso.Os livros de Tobias, Macabeus e Judite pertenceram às escrituras sagradas de Israel ou não?O que aconteceu com certos livros que são mencionados na Bíblia, mas não foram encontrados, como histórias sobre a corte do rei Davi, os Anais de Salomão, um livro de Jasher, e proeminente o Livro de 1688 de Guerras do Senhor? ?

Há outro grupo de livros que desperta interesse especial, incluindo uma extensa coleção de escritos judaicos e judaicos-helenísticos que estão disponíveis (alguns em estado fragmentário), mas que por algum motivo foram excluídos do Antigo Testamento.Alguns foram recuperados ou desenterrados nos últimos 2.000 anos, enquanto outros permaneceram sob a custódia de bibliotecas secretas ou heréticas.Entre eles estão o Livro de Enoque, o Livro de 688 de Jubileu, o Apocalipse de Moisés, e muitos outros.Apesar de não ter sido admitido como cânone, muitas das suas doutrinas permearam na cultura popular, mesmo na antiguidade, incluindo-se entre os primeiros cristãos.A rebelião dos anjos maus liderados por Satanás, o castigo para os pecadores no vale dos mortos, o conceito de um Messias que iria morrer por seu povo, e a crença na ressurreição dos mártires com a restituição literal dos seus corpos mutilados são ideias que surgiu em livros apócrifos do antigo testamento.Essas crenças não são encontradas na Bíblia hebraica.

Que o Antigo Testamento não era um produto acabado na época do Segundo Templo (500 aC-70 dC) e que havia mais livros em circulação pode ser estabelecido considerando que a literatura apócrifa judaica é citada no Novo Testamento.A Epístola de Judas menciona uma luta entre o diabo e um arcanjo pela alma de Moisés, um episódio não encontrado no Pentateuco.O autor da epístola que está citando de Enoque, um apócrifo livro do antigo testamento, ou possivelmente da ascensão de Moisés, que o autor de Judas considerado como autoritativo.



The Church and the Empire

by D.J. Medley

Previous to the eleventh century there had been quarrels between Emperor and Pope. Occasional Popes, such as Nicholas I (858-67), had asserted high prerogatives for the successor of St. Peter, but we have seen that the Church herself taught the co-ordinate and the mutual dependence of the ecclesiastical and secular powers. It was the circumstances of the tenth century which caused the Church to assume a less complacent attitude and, in her efforts to prevent her absorption by the State, to attempt the reduction of the State to a mere department of the Church.
            With the acceptance of Christianity as the official religion of the Empire the organisation of the Church tended to follow the arrangements for purposes of civil government. And when at a later period civil society was gradually organising itself on that hierarchical model which we know as feudalism, the Church, in the persons of its officers, was tending to become not so much the counterpart of the State as an integral part of it. For the clergy, as being the only educated class, were used by the Kings as civil administrators, and on the great officials of the Church were bestowed extensive estates which should make them a counterpoise to the secular nobles. In theory the clergy and people of the diocese still elected their bishop, but in reality he came to be nominated by the King, at whose hands he received investiture of his office by the symbolic gifts of the ring and the pastoral staff, and to whom he did homage for the lands of the see, since by virtue of them he was a baron of the realm. Thus for all practical purposes the great ecclesiastic was a secular noble, a layman. He had often obtained his high ecclesiastical office as a reward for temporal service, and had not infrequently paid a large sum of money as an earnest of loyal conduct and for the privilege of recouping himself tenfold by unscrupulous use of the local patronage which was his.
            Furthermore, in contravention of the canons of the Church, the secular clergy, whether bishops or priests, were very frequently married. The Church, it is true, did not consecrate these marriages; but, it is said, they were so entirely recognised that the wife of a bishop was called Episcopissa. There was an imminent danger that the ecclesiastical order would shortly lapse into an hereditary social caste, and that the sons of priests inheriting their fathers’ benefices would merely become another order of landowners…

Tripping Over Engineering: Going Nuclear: Exploring the Birth of the Atomic Age

by Lindsey Bredemeyer

How would you like to actually see the dark secrets of the US nuclear weapons program. Stand on the site of the first nuclear reactor (CP-1). Stand in the control room of the first continuous operating reactor (X-10). Stand at the loading face of the first production reactor (Hanford B) that produced plutonium for the first atomic detonation and many of the 60,000 US nuclear weapons produced. Walk through USS Nautilus, the first nuclear submarine, which changed the entire concept of warfare at sea.

The story of US nuclear weapons often focuses on the physicists delving into new aspects of their science. But how much engineering effort and expense was spent on producing the isotopes, building the weapons and putting them on target. Nuclear medicine, the space program, the rapid development of jet aircraft, the human genome project are all progeny of the nuclear age. All had some relationship with the desire to produce and deliver nuclear weapons. Besides technical progress, the nuclear age also redefined the world socially and culturally. This engineering deserves more than a footnote in history. It deserves to be seen. Until you can go, get on the bus with me, I saved you a seat.



Child Protection in England, 1960â??2000: Expertise, Experience, and Emotion (Palgrave Studies in the History of Childhood)

by Jennifer Crane

This book is open access under a CC BY 4.0 license.

This open access book explores how children, parents, and survivors reshaped the politics of child protection in late twentieth-century England.  Activism by these groups, often manifested in small voluntary organisations, drew upon and constructed an expertise grounded in experience and emotion that supported, challenged, and subverted medical, social work, legal, and political authority.  New forms of experiential and emotional expertise were manifested in politics – through consultation, voting, and lobbying – but also in the reshaping of everyday life, and in new partnerships formed between voluntary spokespeople and media.  While becoming subjects of, and agents in, child protection politics over the late twentieth century, children, parents, and survivors also faced barriers to enacting change, and the book traces how long-standing structural hierarchies, particularly around gender and age, mediated and inhibited the realisation of experiential and emotional expertise.

47 Billion Years of Evolution: A Case Report Physical and Spiritual Development of Humankind

by Martha J. Barham R.N. Ph.D.

The information in this case report was taught by two materialized entities (discarnate spirits who temporarily assumed a human physical body). It includes concepts consistent with aspects of both evolutionary theory and creationism. The entities state that Earth’s galaxy was created 47 billion years ago by the Source (energy that creates energy). Earth evolved the conditions necessary to sustain life 47 million years ago when the Source created all forms of life on Earth at the same time and set evolutionary laws in motion. Humans evolved as the most suitable creature for a higher quantity and quality of consciousness 7 million years ago when the Source endowed them with a soul (incarnate entity).

Unlike other forms of life, the endowed human physical personality has consisted of 4 interconnected physical, intellectual, emotional, and spiritual quadrants. Spiritual evolution until 4 million years ago involved a balanced use of the 4 quadrants and a sense of compassion, respect for self and others, awareness of interconnectedness with other humans and the universe, the common use of psychic or intuitive abilities, and a strong connection with the Source. Since then, humans have become more materialistic and less in touch with their spiritual quadrant. This is reflected in the development of guilt, shame, hate, and sin, satan, hell, slavery and wars. Milestones in human’s spiritual evolution are described in terms of Biblical metaphors and the role of an Egyptian in 1,019,000 B.C. who created organized religion as it is known today. The nature of the early Christian church and changes since then illustrate the challenges of maintaining a spiritual connection.

In recent centuries, a renewed sense of spirituality has been evolving with the inspiration of quantum theorists, psychics, mediums, and materializations of discarnate entities worldwide. The content of these inspirations pertain to the nature of the human physical personality, soul, purpose of life, and eternal afterlife in an unobstructed universe. A spiritual science that includes both physical (obstructed) and non-physical (unobstructed) energy is developing. These inspirations are part of a renewed teaching of spirituality. The two materialized entities who presented the information in this book are part of a committee of discarnate entities who are working with the entity â??K’. The Preface and Epilogue provide indicators of the impact of the “K Plan”. Therefore, the letter â??K’ is on the cover of this book.

The Lyre and the Sword: A novel about King David: Musician, poet, warrior, seducer and murderer

by David Mandel

In “The Lyre and the Sword” Mandel tells the life of King David, the most famous king in history or literature, an exceptional man, a superb poet, a talented musician and a great military leader. He was also an unscrupulous and ambitious politician who used his intelligence and courage to climb from his humble beginnings as a shepherd to the summit of an empire. His failure as a father, his reluctance to discipline his children, and his indulgence were the cause of tragic events in his dysfunctional family.
The author presents David as a living character, not the idealized king, but a man whose virtues were matched by his shortcomings, in a book full of adventures, humor and irony.

From the Prologue of “The Lyre and the Sword”:
My father, King David, was lying in bed, exhausted and breathing hard. When he saw me he smiled weakly, tried to get up, but could not. I was shocked to see him so feeble and emaciated, a shadow of the man he had been. With the little strength he had left, he grabbed my hand and spoke to me in a voice that I could barely hear.
At times his voice faltered, but yet he still spoke clearly.
“Regarding Joab, my nephew and childhood friend, the commander of my army, more brother to me than my own brothers, a man who saved my life in battle more than once, a man who devoted his entire life to my serviceâ?¦”
“Yes, father, I know, I know” I interrupted.
“I want you to kill him.”
