Introducción a los Profetas – 3ª Parte

April 25, 2013 Length: 8:56

Para entender que significan términos como “Palabra de Dios” o “Verbo de Dios”, Padre Joan, nos explica el doble valor, noético y dinámico, del vocablo hebreo “dabar”. Por una parte, el sustantivo masculino דָּבָר “dabar” (palabra) es la expresión de pensamientos, intenciones, proyectos, decisiones; es el discurso inteligible que ilumina el sentido de los acontecimientos; es el nombre de la realidad en cuanto inteligible. Por otra parte, el verbo דָּבַר “dabar” (decir) es una fuerza activa, una potencia que cumple lo que significa, realiza cuanto hay en el corazón, y su eficacia es más grande cuanto más poderosa es la voluntad que la engendra, o más profunda es la fuente de dónde brota.

In this third of three podcasts, Father Joan explains the noetic and dynamic distinctions implicit in the Hebrew word "DABAR" On the one hand, “DABAR” is a masculine noun דָּבָר (“word”). It is the expression of thoughts, intentions, plans, decisions, and speech which illuminates the meaning of events and names intelligible reality. On the other, the verb דָּבַר "DABAR" (“to say”) is an active force, a power that delivers what it means, that executes what is contained in the heart, and its effecacy is greater the greater the will is of He who engenders it or the deeper the wellspring.

"I'm a seeker. I've found myself feeling restless in my Protestant church, wondering if I can go deeper in my daily worship, wondering what came before the Reformation. I stumbled onto the Orthodox Church a couple of years ago, and my soul is rejoicing. Thank you for this site which allows me access to the church at least in part. I am praying that my husband will allow me to one day visit our local church."
