Entry for 'Theophilus' - The Catholic Encyclopedia - One of 8 Bible encyclopedias freely available, this encyclopedia is one of the most comprehensive resource on Catholic teaching, history, and information. Latinized form of the Greek name Θεοφιλος (Theophilos) meaning "friend of god", derived from θεος meaning "god" and φιλος meaning "friend". In the New Testament the evangelist Luke addresses his gospel and the Book of Acts to a man named Theophilus.

Theophilus then describes why the text has “us” there, by appealing to God’s speaking to “his own Logos and his own Sophia” (). Though he does not directly call the Logos and Sophia God’s hands, the implication is clear. This is the same language that Irenaeus commonly uses.

The history of Theophilus and Sophia by Mrs. Sherwood Download PDF EPUB FB2

In this book, Theophilos was the adopted son of Luke, the author of the books of Luke and the Acts. The settings for this book is primarily on the Island of Crete, the Holy Land and Rome. Luke and his son, Theophilos are the central characters in the book/5(66).

THEOPHILUS OF ANTIOCH THEOPHILUS TO AUTOLYCUS. BOOK I. CHAP. IAUTOLYCUS AN IDOLATER AND SCORNER OF CHRISTIANS. A FLUENT tongue and an elegant style afford pleasure and such praise as vainglory delights in, to wretched men who have been corrupted in mind; the lover of truth does not give heed to ornamented speeches, but examines the real matter of the speech, what it.

The Secret Book of John The first time I read the Nag Hammadi library I was immediately drawn to the saga of the heroine and anti-heroine that is the character of Sophia.

Every story she appeared in was different but oddly familiar. Theophilus is the Person to whom Luke addresses the book of Luke and the Acts of the Apostles.

In fact, he is the only person mentioned in the scriptures to whom writings were specifically dedicated to(O’Toole, ). Theophilus, (died JanuConstantinople), Eastern Roman emperor (–), principal promoter of the 9th-century Byzantine renascence of learning and the last advocate of the Eastern heresy of Iconoclasm (the destruction of religious images) in a reign beset by Arab invasions.

The son of the emperor Michael II, of the Phrygian dynasty traditionally favourable to Iconoclasm. Another theory about who Theophilus was is that he was the Jewish high priest named Theophilus ben Ananus. Theophilus ben Ananus was high priest in Jerusalem in A.D.

He was the son of Annas and the brother–in-law of Caiaphus. While less popular, this theory seems to be gaining popularity among some groups. Acts NIV "1In my former book, Theophilus, I wrote about all that Jesus began to do and to teach 2until the day he was taken up to heaven, after giving instructions through the Holy Spirit to the apostles he had chosen." So how come it's not in the Bible In Acts it tells what the book spoke of, but I would like to read the actual book itself.

Perhaps the most important Jewish writing for Theophilus was the book of Genesis and its account of creation. Much of Ad Autolycum’s second book is devoted to commentary on Genesis and an explanation of its proper interpretation.

From his writings it can be deduced that Theophilus was of the Benedictine o Theophilus, German monk who wrote De diversis artibus (c. –40; also called Schedula diversarum artium), an exhaustive account of the techniques of almost all the known crafts of the first half of the 12th century.

As for the rest of the Old Testament, Theophilus does not quote any other books of the Pentateuch, and outside the Psalms (of David) and the Proverbs (of Solomon) he quotes only the prophets. In the first book he quotes directly only Prov 24 under the title 0 VOfJ-OS 0 'TaU BEau.

(I 11). Information on Pistis Sophia. The Pistis Sophia is preserved in the Codex Askewianus and has been known to scholars for nearly two centuries. Jack Finegan writes (Hidden Records of the Life of Jesus, p.

), "The text of Codex Askewianus is divided into four sections."H.-C. Puech, revised by Beate Blatz, writes (New Testament Apocrypha, vol. 1, p. ): "following the analysis of K.R. Theophilus (friend of God) the person to whom St. Luke inscribes his Gospel and the Acts of the Apostles. (Luke ; Acts ) From the honorable epithet applied to him in (Luke ) it has been argued with much probability that he was a person in high official position.

T he identity of Theophilus is a mystery to Bible students. The name appears only two times in Scripture and both times in the writings of Luke (LukeActs ). It is uncertain what role in the early church he played but he is noteworthy in the thinking of Luke for he directs both the Gospel account and the Acts account to Theophilus.

The Acts of the ApostlesSee Introduction as to the title thus given to the Book. (1) The former treatiseLiterally, word, or discourse; but the English of the text is, perhaps, a happier equivalent than either.

The Greek term had been used by Xenophon (Anab. 1; 1, 2) as St. Luke uses it, of what we should call the several "Books" or portions of his Histories. Saint Theophilus the Penitent or Theophilus of Adana (died c.

AD) was a cleric in the sixth century Church who is said to have made a deal with the Devil to gain an ecclesiastical position. His story is significant as it is the oldest story of a pact with the devil and was an inspiration for the Faust legend. Eutychianus of Adana, who claimed to be an eyewitness of the events, is the first.

As we have seen in both the Gospel of Luke and Acts of the Apostles, the author of both books addresses a being called Theophilus.

Luke I, too, have carefully investigated everything from the beginning and have decided to write an orderly account for you, most excellent Theophilus, so that you may know the certainty of the. Theophilus received a Greek education and seems to have had some knowledge of Hebrew.

Eusebius in his History of the Church (Ch.4,20), wrote that Theophilus was the sixth bishop of Antioch from the apostles, the names of his predecessors being Eros, Cornelius, Hero, Ignatius, and Euodius. Theophilus has 17 books on Goodreads with ratings. Theophilus’s most popular book is Fathers of the Second Century: Hermas, Tatian, Theophilus, Athen.

This book is the first comprehensive analysis of the identities of Johanna and most excellent Theophilus. In support of this identification of Theophilus as the High Priest (Chapter 2) and Johanna as his granddaughter (Chapter 3), it is shown that Luke the author, a priest and eyewitness (Chapter 14), has adopted the recurring Old Testament theme of unfaithful and dishonest priests (Chapter 12).Reviews: 4.
