The Resolution of the Problem of Theodicy in the New Testament

(Original title: Riešenie problému teodícey v Novej zmluve)
Filozofia, 60 (2005), 8, 573-595.
Type of work: Papers
Publication language: Slovak

The question of Theodicy demands a reasonable justification of the nature, structures and goals of evil and suffering in the world. The paper attempts to explain the reasons for its presence in our lives and seeks to unveil its principles. If God is all knowing, almighty and also merciful, we must face the problem of the presence of evil and suffering in this world. The main goal of the paper is to show the way the New Testament deals with this question, and further to show to what extent it has influenced the life of Christians from the point of view of teleology.
