Chapter Summary

Evangelium Veritatis is a meditation or homily on the gospel. The language of the prologue clearly reflects the background of the New Testament revelation in Christ. In brief, what the prologue presents in broad outline and what the text of Evangelium Veritatis will develop in detail are that the gospel of truth originates with the Father of truth, and concerns men who are without gnosis molding them into an elect community and supplying them with the hope or goal of a life in the Father. The three themes noted in the title of the section stand interrelated in the passage. Jesus' coming and the word he speaks become the occasion for the manifestation of the book of the living ones who, in turn, are the ones who hear the Divine call and rise up to him who calls them in order to possess the things that are theirs.
