Scurte consideratii personale despre recent incheiata Conferinta IOTA de la Iasi

Conferinta a fost foarte bine organizata si suportul asigurat de Arhiepiscopia Moldovei surprinzator de profesionist, in ciuda rezervelor unora mai conservatori de acolo fata de IOTA (perceputa ca fiind prea radicala).

Discursul Mitropolitului Kallistos, care poate fi urmatit pe canalul youtube al IOTA, a fost foarte transant si totusi a fost aplaudat la scena deschisa de participantii la deschiderea oficiala a conferintei, la Teatrul National, in prezenta participantilor si a multor personalitati iesene.

Desigur, asa cum era de asteptat, numarul femeilor care au prezentat lucrari in cadrul conferintei a fost mult mai mic decit cel al barbatilor, dar prezentarile lor, cel putin cele la care eu am assistat, si am incercat sa vad cit pot de multe dintre ale lor, au fost substantiale si au nascut dezbateri foarte serioase.

Prezenta observatorilor ecumenici, si a unor prezentari facute de ne-ortodocsi a fost importanta si, din cite imi spunea Paul Gavrilyuk, intr-o scurta convrbire, ceva ce va continua.

In sectiunile legate de ecumenism au fost numai prezentari facute de ne-evanghelici. Desigur, era mai ‘safe’ asa, data fiind tendinta anti-ecumenica din ortodoxia din aceasta parte de lume, dar este ceva ce ar trebui evitat in viitor, din motive de credibilitate.

A fost, pentru mine, o ocazie de a intilni, la mine acasa, o multime de prieteni ortodocsi, din diverse parti ale lumii. Sper ca povestea va continua, caci otodoxia din partea noastra de lume are nevoie de asa ceva ca de aer pentru a iesi dn autosuficienta pe care i-o da statutul de religie majoritara si de aflarea in proximitatea toxica a puterii politice.

Intr-o nota personala, ma bucur ca textul meu, modest, legat de perichoresis in Dogmatica lui Staniloae a fost primit foarte bine.
Doamne-ajuta!

Richard Rohr – Jesus’ Hermeneutic

Jesus’ approach to interpreting sacred text was radical for his time, yet honored his own Hebrew Bible (or what Christians call the Old Testament). Even though Jesus’ use of Scripture is plain enough for us to see in the Gospels, many Christians are accustomed to reading the Bible in a very different way. We simply haven’t paid attention and connected the dots! Over the next couple days, I’ll share some examples that reveal Jesus’ hermeneutic so that we might follow his methodology:

  • Jesus actually does not quote Scripture that much! In fact, he is criticized for not doing this: “you teach with [inner] authority and not like our own scribes” (Mark 1:22).
     
  • Jesus talks much more out of his own experience of God and humanity instead of teaching like the scribes and Pharisees, who operated out of their own form of case law by quoting previous sources.
     
  • Jesus often uses what appear to be non-Jewish or non-canonical sources, or at least sources scholars cannot verify. For example, “It is not the healthy who need the doctor, but the sick do” (see Mark 2:17, Matthew 9:12, and Luke 5:31), or the parable of the rich man and Lazarus (see Luke 16:19-31). His bandwidth of authority and attention is much wider than sola Scriptura. He even quotes some sources seemingly incorrectly (for example, John 10:34)!
     
  • Jesus never once quotes from nineteen of the books in his own Scriptures. In fact, he appears to use a very few favorites: Exodus, Deuteronomy, Isaiah, Hosea, and Psalms—and those are overwhelmingly in Matthew’s Gospel, which was directed to a Jewish audience.
     
  • Jesus appears to ignore most of his own Bible, yet it clearly formed his whole consciousness. That is the paradox. If we look at what he ignores, it includes any passages—of which there are many—that appear to legitimate violence, imperialism, exclusion, purity, and dietary laws. Jesus is a biblically formed non-Bible quoter who gets the deeper stream, the spirit, the trajectory of his Jewish history and never settles for mere surface readings.
     
  • When Jesus does once quote Leviticus, he quotes the one positive mandate among long lists of negative ones: “You must love your neighbor as yourself” (Leviticus 19:18).
