Arcana caelestia

£9.99

Product description

Scripture is its own interpreter; that is, the Word as a whole serves to explain any specific part, as will be evident to the careful reader of Arcana Caelestia. Essentially an exposition of the first two books of the Old Testament, Swedenborg's longest work--eight volumes in Latin, twelve in English--draws continually on other parts of Scripture to shed light on the inner or spiritual meaning of those two books. In the present Volume, for example, twelve passages are introduced from elsewhere in the Word to show what is meant in Genesis 39:20 by being 'bound' or in prison. Some twenty-five, to give another example, are quoted at Genesis 40:9 to explain the spiritual meaning of the vine which Pharaoh's cupbearer or butler saw in his dream. Yet such texts from different parts of the Scripture not only help to disclose the spiritual or internal sense of Genesis and Exodus; light is also frequently shed on those texts themselves.
The subject in the main body of this Volume Seven is, as in the preceding three volumes, the glorification of the Lord's Natural Man. Preliminary sections to the first two chapters serve to complete an explanation, begun in Volume Six, of the parables found in Matthew 25 (there are no more preliminary sections to chapters in this volume, and none at all in the next). And sections at the ends of chapters continue the subject of the Grand Man, rounding it off with information about spiritual disorders which lie behind forms of physical sickness and to which the latter correspond.

Description:
Good condition; minor shelf wear on dust jacket; inside clean.
