Top Highlights

“Angels that appear as animals. They symbolize the glory of God expressed in creation, e.g., divine authority (lion), strength (ox), intelligence (man), and swiftness (eagle).” (Page 499)

“Allegorically (St. Bede, In Marcum): Jesus heals the blind man to announce the mystery of redemption. As God Incarnate, Jesus heals man through the sacrament of his human nature, here signified by his hands and spittle. This grace cures our spiritual blindness gradually, and, as with the blind man, progress is measured in proportion to our faith. Allegorically (St. Jerome, Homily 79), the restoration of the blind man signifies our gradual increase in wisdom, from the darkness of ignorance to the light of truth. Christ’s spittle is the perfect doctrine that proceeds from his mouth; it enhances our vision and brings us progressively to the knowledge of God.” (Pages 79–80)

“This form of OT interpretation is called typology.” (Page 28)

“ he uses old truths to instruct us about new ones.” (Page 28)

“‘flowing’ water, i.e., a preferable alternative to stagnant well water” (Page 168)

    This resource is a must for Catholic professors of Sacred Scripture.

    I happened to buy this because I have the paper version and thought my life could be a lot simpler with a digital version. Not so, at least with this one. The download comes with the Introduction as it is in the paper version however, there is no bible text at all, just commentary on select parts of the text. Unless one wants to use this with the paper version in hand, to me, it is virtually useless.
